If there’s one thing all of Bravo’s Real Housewives have in common, it’s a knack for throwing a lavish (and expensive) event.
So, it comes as no surprise that when these ladies say “I do,” their big days are over-the-top and filled with tons of luxury items.
Especially when they know that their big event is going to make it on TV screens as fans of their show watch them wed.

In 2011, after 13 years of marriage, RHOA OG NeNe Leakes and her husband, Gregg, decided to file for divorce. Two years later, the couple found their way back to each other and decided to walk down the aisle for the second time.
The nuptials were televised during NeNe’s spinoff, I Dream of NeNe: the wedding had a total of 400 guests, per Radar Online. She also had nine bridesmaids for the wedding, including current RHOA stars Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton.
To add more elegance, NeNe wore two wedding gowns for the ceremony and the reception that followed. The dresses were from luxury designers Baracci and Pnina Tornai and were worth an estimated $20,000.
2. Tamra and Eddie Judge – The Real Housewives of Orange County
After filing for divorce from her ex-husband Simon Barney in 2011, RHOC fans watched as Tamra found love again with her current husband, Eddie Judge. The couple got married in 2013 and cameras followed them every step of the way.
Their wedding was held at the Monarch Beach Resort in California, followed by a reception at the St. Regis hotel. The event had 100 guests, including most of her fellow castmates.
In addition to the chandeliers, crystal chains, and other opulent items at the wedding, Tamra insisted on having three different wedding gowns throughout the day. According to Bravo, the dresses were designed for Tamra by Mark Zunino and finished off the look with a bridal cuff, which was tailored by Diann Valentine.
3. LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin – The Real Housewives of Dallas
One of the most buzzed-about weddings in Housewives history is LeeAnne Locken’s $4 million-wedding to Rich Emberlin in November 2019.
The wedding was so extravagant that Bravo had to release a statement to confirm that the network had nothing to do with funding the nuptials. Nonetheless, the wedding was something Bravo fans hadn’t seen on such a high magnitude.
The wedding was shown on RHOD shortly before LeeAnne’s shocking exit and was filled with dancing cowboys, disco ninjas, and a decked-out cathedral in Dallas. LeeAnne wore a $1 million emerald-and-diamond tiara and a $25,000 gown.
According to Today, Although the wedding was extravagant, the housewife upset her guests by opting not to feed them during the wedding.
4. Eva Marcille and Michael Sterling – The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Former RHOA star Eva Marcille spent her first year as a full-time peach holder planning her fairytale wedding to her politician husband, Michael Sterling. The pair got married in October 2018 with a ceremony that cost $350,000.
Eva told Essence back in March 2019 that she wanted to stick to a ballroom theme that was fit for a princess. In order to achieve this, she said she implemented specific rules for her guests to abide by.
“No kids, no plus ones and no ankles,” she said. “I wanted ballgowns and [some people] still showed up in a cocktail dress! I’m like, no, no ankles!”
In addition to having palace rules, Eva also had NeNe Leakes speak at her wedding. At the time, Eva considered NeNe to be a sister to her and said she had given her solid advice about marriage before she walked down the aisle.
5. Camille Grammer and David Meyer – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
In 2018, RHOBH star Camille Grammer and her husband David Meyer had a destination wedding in Hawaii to exchange their vows. The gorgeous backdrop to her special day was something Camille told People she couldn’t do without. She said the destination is especially significant to her and was a perfect fit for her and David.
“Hawaii is my special place,” Camille said. “I have so much respect for the Hawaiian culture. It’s all about ohana, family, love, respect for the land and respect for each other.”
Although RHOBH got to see parts of the wedding on the show, Camille and David only had 85 guests in attendance. The guests included fellow housewives Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp. Kyle Richards was also one of Camille’s bridesmaids.
While the wedding was low-key, Camille stunned her guests in a custom Malan Breton wedding gown.
6. Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey – The Real Housewives of New Jersey
RHONJ star Danielle Staub married her husband Marty Caffrey in a bohemian beach wedding in the Bahamas. Danielle two gorgeous wedding dresses from designer Pnina Tornai.
The dress for the ceremony was a lace, strapless wedding gown with a mermaid-style skirt. During the reception, Danielle’s friend and fellow co-star, Teresa Giudice, toasted the pair and their marriage.
Melissa Gorga and Danielle’s daughters also served as bridesmaids alongside Teresa. According to People, the couple also shared their first dance as a couple to Ed Sheeran’s 2014 hit, “Thinking Out Loud”.
Although the couple had a beautiful destination wedding, the marriage, unfortunately, didn’t last long. Marty filed for divorce just four months after they were married. Prior to her ex-husband, the Bravo star had been engaged 20 times.
7. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker – The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Kandi and Todd decided to go all out when they got married back in 2014. Like her frenemy, NeNe Leakes, Kandi’s nuptials warranted its own spin-off: Kandi’s wedding.
The massive wedding cost $400,000 and was inspired by Eddie Murphy’s classic film Coming to America. Not only was the venue, wedding, and reception over-the-top, Kandi had several musicians and fellow reality stars for her bridal party.
Some of her bridesmaids included her Xscape bandmate, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, singer Fantasia Barrino, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star Rasheeda Frost, and Kandi’s former friend and current Marriage Boot Camp star, Phaedra Parks.
The wedding also had performers like Bell Biv Devoe at the reception. For her dress, Kandi rocked a $20,000 Reco Chapple gown, which had a 12-foot train. She also added Christian Louboutin’s five-inch Body Strass crystal-studded transparent stilettos to her luxurious look.

In 2018. Denise and Aaron secretly tied the knot in Malibu. The couple was only engaged for a few months before they decided to walk down the aisle. The small wedding was held outside in a backyard and was followed by a reception of 15 people. Denise confirmed the news to Us Weekly days after it was rumored that they tied the knot.
“I am so happy to officially be married to the love of my life,” she said. “I can’t wait for everyone to go on this incredible journey with me this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s been a wild ride so far!”
Denise didn’t let her small wedding make her shy away from having the wedding dress of her dreams. She wore a custom Mark Zunino dress, which the designer shared he made in 24 hours.
9. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy – The Real Housewives of New York
In 2010, Bethenny and Jason tied the knot at the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York. At the time, Bethenny was pregnant with the couple’s daughter, Bryn. For the wedding, which was attended by Hoda Kotb and her former co-star Ramona Singer, Bethenny opted not to have a wedding that was filled with free swag items for her guests, per Page Six.
However, Bravo did add in some perks for her guests, which she didn’t disclose at the time. The wedding reportedly cost the reality star $200,000.
The wedding between Bethenny and Jason appeared on her spin-off show, Bethenny’s Getting Married. Things soon went south for the couple, who separated in 2016.
The estranged couple is still legally married and most recently were in a custody battle for their daughter.
10. Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann – The Real Housewives of Atlanta
After finding love at an event on RHOA in 2010, former Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak married Kroy Biermann in 2011. The couple’s Atlanta wedding had a $1 million price tag and was documented on Kim’s spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding.
Kim rocked three dresses for her special day, including a $58,000 gown for the ceremony. At the reception, the bride wore an $18,000 mermaid style gown designed by Pnina Tornai.
In 2017, after six years of marriage, Kim and Kroy decided to renew their wedding vows. The couple was joined by their six children for an intimate ceremony in Turks and Caicos. Kim wore a lavish white gown and the rest of the family also went with white dresses and suits.
The feud between Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans may have gotten the most attention, but there was a time when Kail’s beef with Briana DeJesus was just as intense.
Briana says it all started because Kail felt threatened when she joined the cast of Teen Mom 2.
Lowry says there was no bad blood between them until Briana started dating Javi Marroquin.
She claims it wasn’t even the fact that her ex-husband had moved on with her co-worker that bothered her.
Rather, it was Kail’s belief that Bri dated Javi merely to exact some sort of revenge.
We might never know for sure if Briana had ulterior motives in dating Javi.
But whatever the case, it looks like history might be repeating itself.
Rumors of Briana and Chris Lopez hooking up have been circulating for weeks now.
Chris, of course, is the father of Kail’s youngest two children.
Briana has denied the reports, but Chris’ animosity toward Kail might lead him to actually pursue the relationship.
If it happens, it would mean that Briana has banged two of Kail’s three baby daddies, and she would have a tough time chalking that up to coincidence.
With all this going on, perhaps it’s not surprising that Kail might have adopted an “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” approach to the problem.
Devoin Austin is one of Bri’s two baby daddies, and he posted the photo above on Instagram this week.
“I heard corona hittin hard I need a gucci mask,” Devoin captioned the pic.
We’re pretty sure wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is more important than wearing a designer mask, but that’s a conversation for another time.
The reason Devoin’s photo is significant is that Kail caught the attention of Teen Mom fans by liking the pic.
Maybe there’s nothing to it, and she just appreciates a good color-coordinated outfit.
But what seems more likely is that this is her way of firing the next shot in her never-ending war against Briana.
Anyway, that’s the interpretation that fans seem to favor.
“If they don’t already follow each other and she had to see it by some other means in order to like it, then this some high school shit yet again,” one commenter wrote on the Teen Mom Tea Instagram page.
“She dont joke around about fkn, so whats the tea?” another asked, seemingly in reference to Kail.
“Wonder when any of these ‘parents’ will grow up and stop playing mind games with eachother. It’s getting pretty sad at this point,” a third user chimed in.
Others were not so quick to jump to conclusions and pointed out that it’s entirely possible for Kail and Devoin to have a friendship independent of Briana.
“She’s not being petty, they are friends???” one person commented.
“Lol she might like his shoes,” another wrote.
To be fair, those are some pretty cool sneakers.
Kail and Devoin do appear to follow one another on Instagram, and it’s entirely possible that Kail simply smashed that like button on a friend’s pic.
But the timing makes the whole situation rather suspect.
A new season of Teen Mom 2 is currently airing, and it’s been a doozy for Briana.
DeJesus revealed that she contracted an STD during a one-night stand with her other baby daddy, Luis Hernandez.
She learned that unfortunate fact after going and getting tested in front of an MTV camera crew.
Whatever embarrassment she might have felt was compounded shortly thereafter when Briana was rejected by OnlyFans for reasons that remain unclear.
Kail might have recognized an opportunity to kick her rival while she was down and seized it.
That may sound brutal, but Teen Mom feuds generally are.
MTV should probably just stop with the pretenses and start putting these moms in a boxing ring together.
If nothing else, it would allow the ladies an opportunity to vent some long pent-up aggression.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ iconic 1995 album Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness turns 25 years old next month. And to celebrate the anniversary, the Smashing Pumpkins are collaborating with skatewear brand HUF on a new collection that will be out on Thursday.
According to HUF, “Our Smashing Pumpkins collab pays tribute to the Mellon Collie album on its 25-year anniversary and pulls inspiration from some of SP’s most influential work throughout the 90s.” Check out some of the gear below and see the full lookbook here.
After the box office success of ‘Venom’, Sony is expanding its universe of Marvel characters with ‘Morbius’ starring Jared Leto as the titular vampire anti-hero. However, while a sequel for ‘Venom’ is already in the works, a ‘Morbius’ franchise might not be the best idea.
Michael Morbius is fundamentally a normal dude who just happens to need to drink people’s blood to survive. That’s the whole crux of the character and in an interview with IGN, Leto said that this was what attracted him to the project in the first place.
“There’s a line in the film where Morbius says that he’s been dying his entire life and now feels more alive than ever. And I think that sums it up,” Leto explained. “Here’s someone who’s been afflicted with this horrendous disease and has had all kinds of challenges and has been in pursuit of this cure. And then all of a sudden has this power and this physical strength, which is all incredible, but there is a flip side to it as well. There’s a dark side. So that battle between the light and dark is something that he fights throughout the film.”
Now there’s plenty of potential for a great standalone movie but can ‘Morbius’ sustain a film series of his own? Perhaps, not.
With ‘Morbius’, Marvel Comics was essentially trying to do something new with vampires, at a time when vampiric characters were quite rare in comics. By giving his powers a sci-fi origin instead of basing it in magic, Marvel managed to create a unique character but in the modern era, where vampires are a dime a dozen, the whole “living vampire” shtick loses its novelty pretty quickly.
It’s not like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be starved of vampires either with a ‘Blade’ movie in the works starring Mahershala Ali as the titular vampire who hunts vampires. Besides, Morbius has always been more enjoyable when he has other characters to bounce off of. He’d be an excellent addition to a ‘Sinister Six’ movie or perhaps even a ‘Midnight Sons’ movie but on his own, there’s only so many things you can do with the character.
‘Morbius’ is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 31.
