“Don’t make any sudden movements pal, because I’m Right Here Waiting. Oooh, that was good. I should say that out loud.”
The latest round of celebrity air travel drama is brought to you by a very unlikely source: Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes. What is it with Richard and Daisy popping up in the month of December for a totally random reason? Last December it was by getting married to each other. This year it’s because Richard helped to take down a crazy passenger on a flight from Vietnam to South Korea.
When Daisy Fuentes and Richard Marx got married in Aspen back in December, my brain though “Well that’s nice” and then promptly filed said information into the trash, along with what I ate for lunch and the plot of the 1985 film Perfect. So obviously I got a raging case of Groundhog Day when I saw that Daisy Fuentes and Richard Marx got married in Los Angeles last night. Thankfully, my brain doesn’t empty the trash that often, so I was able to go in and confirm that, yes, these two are already married and, no, I’m not losing my mind.
According to Karent Sierra (yes, former RHOM cast member Karent Sierra), the guest list at Daisy and Richard’s Aspen wedding was limited to close family only. So Daisy and Richard decided to throw themselves a second Aspen-themed wedding because none of their friends were at the first one. Daisy and Richard didn’t do the whole vow thing, but they did have bunch of fake snow and played a video of their Aspen wedding on a constant loop.
E! says the guest list at Daisy and Richard’s second wedding also included Ringo Starr, Kenny G, and David Foster. Oh my god, that’s like a waiting room’s dream.
Daisy and Richard apparently took the Aspen theme all the way to the reception dress code by asking their guests to show up wearing “Aspen attire.” Okay, someone failed here. Neither Daisy or Richard, or any of their friends were wearing Aspen attire. There wasn’t a single pair of neon ski pants, neon ski boots, Bollé goggles, or white turtleneck to be seen. And yes, I’m basing everything I know about “Aspen attire” on this Juicy Fruit commercial.
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.
