Celebrity Weddings Boost Travel Industry
As we all know, celebs are notorious givers. Just pick a cause, and they're all over it, charitably giving of their time, wallets, and hearts. Recently, a few celebrities have rolled up their sleeves to boost the sagging travel industry. How, you ask? By getting hitched and spending tons of cash! Here's a shortlist of the selfless heroes who have paved the way for America's economic recovery:
* Bruce Willis & Emma Heming: Willis married his girlfriend (she's 23 years his junior for those of you counting) in his posh Parrot Cay home on Turks & Caicos last weekend (thanks for the details, Jaunted). A-list guests included ex-wife and uber-cougar Demi Moore and her young hubby Ashton Kutcher (he's 15 years her junior for those of you counting). The question is, where did the guests hang their hats? Perhaps Grace Bay Club or the new Gansevoort? Kutcher's incessant Twittering only gave away a small clue: this classy photo of his wife's rear end.
* Natasha Bedingfield & Matthew Robinson: The British singer and her non-famous guy tied the knot at Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu (you can find pics at Socialite Life). Apparently it's a favorite celeb wedding spot: Fergie and Josh Duhamel got hitched there a few weeks back. Where did their guests stay? Maybe at the swank Malibu Beach Inn.
* Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady: These do-gooders are so concerned about rescuing the economy, they're having two weddings instead of just one. The first was at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica and now a second has been scheduled at Gisele's house in Costa Rica (check out the invite on TMZ). We owe you both!
* David Letterman & Regina Lasko: Dave waited 23 years to make Lasko an honest woman. The pair finally got hitched in the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, after a detour that caused their pickup truck to get stuck in the mud. Sure, it's not as glamorous as a private island in the Caribbean, but what have you done for Montana tourism lately?
