Oh dear! He looks frightened!
Remember the saying, “All brides are beautiful on their wedding day?” I am sorry but I think we found the one case that doesn’t apply. However, I hope they are happy.
just imagine waking up next to that in the morning.
Wouldn’t you be?
more pics here, boy oh boy.
I do sincerely wish them the best, all jokes aside. It proves there’s hope for everyone.....just because you’re old, or older, doesn’t mean you can’t find happiness.
You know, it just occured to me: that’s what Joan Rivers is going to look like in 20-odd years.
Wow she kind of makes Helen Thomas seem attractive!
Actually, she was quite pretty when she was younger. And the photo of her sunbathing topless.....that was 30 years ago, when she would have been 55 or so. On that photo, not too shabby for 55......better physique than my last girlfriend who was only 35!
Looks like a little too much plastic surgery on her part. Yeesh. You just can’t fight the inevitable march of time.
Looks like loads of plastic surgery has taken it’s toll. Now we know what Joan Rivers will look like in 10 years.
LOL! The one woman who makes Helen Thomas look like Miss America.
Yes, I know what I am- but at least I am a high-priced one
It says her current husband is the brother of her 2nd husband. Kinda ewww, but I guess you can’t help who you love. And since when is a 60 year old a “boy toy”, even if the bride is 85? Anyway, congrats to the newlyweds.
Indeed. A little too much exposure to the surgeon’s scalpel.
If you look at other photos however, physically I will say she’s quite spry and active for 85 years old, which is good. Hopefully, she’s got a bit more life left in her. She seems to be in very good physical condition for her age.
Even Laz would NOT hit that!
Hey, I’d marry Jessica Alba for her money.
Yoiks! It looks like her last facelift was so tight, she probably breathes through a blow-hole in the back of her head.....
We need an expert... Paging Laz! Paging Laz!
Looks to me like she had plastic surgery go wrong. At the UK site, there is a picture of how she looked on a previous wedding day... very different.
Not even with yours, I wouldn't. Not even with yours...
plastic surgery as you get older is harder to do as the muscles thin and ability to mould becomes much much harder to do. You can only hold it up so long.
I think so.
Is that plastic surgery on her face, or is that natural?
Why do people get that stuff, it looks so freakish!
Old looks better than plastic surgery!
*shiver* Sorry, but she looks terrible!
I just emailed this to my boss, who is from Spain, and nearly as old as the Duchess. She’ll get a kick out of it.
Actually, if truth be known... at least this woman aged gracefully. Joan Rivers jokes that with all her plastic surgeries that when she cries, her bangs get wet. At some point, Joan’s knees will be pulled up to her chin. LOL!
If that’s natural, then nature has gone horribly, horribly wrong.
OMG, in one of those Wedding photos she looks like Dr. Zira from Planet of the Apes.
My son mentioned the librarian ghost from “Ghostbusters.”
My boss, the Spanish Battleax, says the Duchess is a very popular figure in Spain, and very physically fit for her age. (Spanish tv showed her dancing at her reception.) The gentleman, per the Battleax, is her travelling companion and assistant, not necessarily in a *personal* relationship, and the marriage is intended simply to keep all respectable.
Holy crap!!!!! Is that women alive???? That gives jumping bones a whole new meaning..
My sister just had her 80th birthday and has a boyfriend that is not 70 yet. She’s not rich, but looks better than that gal with all her money and surgery. Sisters boy friend is younger than me, but not it the best of health, but he keeps her moving and they are happy..They have been together for about 5 years....don’t live together but he has a key to the house....very interesting to watch :O)
Some serious inbreeding there.
I remember seeing a picture of Dame Margot Fonteyn as an oldster. Her skin, OTOH, had been stretched SO tight after SO many face lifts, that she looked like a living skull.
I burned both retinas looking at that hideous monstrosity of a bride....
