People Do the Craziest Things!

I thought I had seen and heard everything until I read on CNN about this woman in Texas who had a wedding cake designed to look like her. Yes, she and her groom cut into a lifesize replica of her wearing her wedding dress at the wedding. Does anyone else find this as disturbing as I do?

Apparently the bride, Chidi Agbuta of Allen, TX had always had a long-time fantasy of having a doll modeled after her. But that didn't happen, so instead she had her wedding cake modeled after. The cake was so big that it took a week to finish it all off. She also had to have two people make the cake, a pastry chef and then someone to mold her head for the top part.

This begs the question, you know the tradition where you're supposed to take the top of the wedding cake, freeze it, and then eat it a year later on your wedding anniversary? That would mean freezing her head! Can you imagine hoping your freezer and seeing a cake version of your head inside?

And in other wedding news, Eddie Murphy and Tracy Edmonds just decided, after TWO weeks of marriage, that they were not going to make their South Pacific island marriage legal in the States. Apparently they decided that they were better off as friends. Does anyone else think that they should have figured this out before their friends and family schlepped to Bora Bora, or where ever the hell it was that they got married, and before they sold the pictures to PEOPLE magazine?

In last week's issue, there was a puff piece about the wedding (seriously who wears sequins on a beach?), and how from the moment they started dating they were never apart. So what went wrong? Between them, they have 8 kids. Yes, 8, six of them his by two different women, and her two by Babyface. I found it curious that their children were not at the wedding, but maybe it was a good thing.

I would be embarrassed to have gotten married and then to have split up two weeks later. Whatever happened to marriage counseling? This is a prime example of why I think it should be harder to get married. You should have to take a test or go through counseling before they even allow you to get a license.

Seriously, Mel B aka Scary Spice, got out when the going was good with this guy!
