Vixen Chat: David Tutera Talks New Season of ‘My Fair Wedding’ and Fantasy Celebrity Ceremonies
VIBE VIXEN: The first episode of the new season of My Fair Wedding Unveiled aired last Saturday. I’m sure it’s been a hectic weekend for you.
DAVID TUTERA: It was a crazy weekend! We premiered the new season of my show Saturday night, and it got an incredible response from my old fans and new fans. At the same time, I was executing a wedding on my show for Rachel and Brendon from Big Brother. We had our drama with Rachel and Brendon, we had drama going on on television with the new season, so it was a lot of good but a lot of drama.
What can we expect from the new season? What’s different from previous seasons?
The difference this season is that the show is really lifting the curtain and seriously showing behind the scenes of what happens. We’ve coined it the “magic behind the madness,” and that really is true. It’s not just that everything goes perfect to get to the end result. We will always have a beautiful dream wedding for my bride and my groom, but there’s conflict, there’s drama, there are issues. There’s things that are presented to me that caused second guessing and challenges to be executed, from bridezillas to groomzillas to moms that take control to sisters that don’t get along. No wedding goes untouched without something happening.
What would you say is the craziest moment that happened this season?
There are so many! The mother of the groom took control the night of the wedding, so that she could run the wedding the way she wanted it to be run. Of course, I stopped that immediately. There was a man of honor, which was the bride’s best friend, who wanted to strip at the wedding as his toast to the wedding. People are a little bit crazy.
Lately, there have been a lot of Hollywood hookups and engagements going on. We want your opinion on a few celebrity pairs and how you think the wedding would be if they were to hypothetically tie the knot. So, how about Joseline and Stevie J?
Oh boy. First of all, do you mean would they get engaged or will they walk down the aisle? That’s the bigger question. I don’t know if they’ll make it down the aisle. I don’t know if it’ll be too big of a battle that it’ll wind up getting called off. That would be my prediction. But I think if they attempt to do it, I think it’d be a wedding that is probably more of a party setting than an elegant setting. Probably a great bar, but definitely not a fairytale princess wedding, that’s for sure.
