When I saw the headline “Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes Tie The Knot” yesterday, I thought that the mixture of my grade 10 hangover and the buzz I was working on caused me to hallucinate because this story is a beautiful fever dream from the 90s.
I am a terrible child of the 80s, because I should be following Richard Marx on Instagram. If I did, I’d know that he and 90s MTV VJ Daisy Fuentes have been humping on each other for about a year. Daisy and Richard even brought the cheese by “canoodling” together in one of his videos last year. So because I had no idea that 52-year-old Richard Marx and 49-year-old Daisy Fuentes are a thing, the news about them getting married made my current self brain burp out a giant “HUH?” as my early 90s self screamed over this hot new IT couple.
Daisy and Richard got married in Aspen, CO on December 23rd. They’ve both been married before. Daisy was married to that hot piece Timothy Adams from Sunset Beach for a few years in the 90s. Last year, Richard got divorced from Cynthia Rhodes (aka Penny in Dirty Dancing) after being married to each other for 25 years. I know, Richard Marx leaving Penny from Dirty Dancing to marry Daisy Fuentes is too much. I need a Zima.
Both Richard, who looks like a low-budget Harry Connick Jr. wax figure, and Daisy have thrown up a few pictures from their winter wonderland wedding on Instagram. I appreciate the ultra dramatic “Alexis Carrington in Doctor Zhivago” poses that Daisy’s trying to deliver, but these two as a couple is still weird to me. It’s like a random famous type from the 80s and a random type from the 90s were just randomly thrown together. I guess Richard was just right there waiting for Daisy since the 90s…
With that being said, I’m all for it. It’s also nice to see a couple bonding over their mutual love of Photoshop, Botox and overusing Instagram filters.
