Lance Bass Says His Wedding Will Probably Be Over-The-Top

BassWe couldn’t be happier…Now, it’s setting in. I think all our friends are happier than we are. We haven’t started planning it at all. I think people expect something big from us and I’m sure they’re going to get something big because, you know, we are a gay couple that likes to do things a little over the top…I love to throw a party and I love weddings, so I think it’s going to be something special for sure.”

    I had a Reese’s peanut butter cup today.

    Where’s my Nobel Prize?

  • Taliaferro

    How about having a wedding in good taste and donating some money to a good cause instead of spending it on self-aggrandisement?

  • Dixie Rect

    Lance looks very special needs in this picture. Of course it will be a big wedding, he has to do something to remain relevant. I think he’s trying to get a reality show on Bravo and playing the gay brotherhood card with that wonkey eyed Andy Cohen.

  • Scribe38

    You guys are coming off a little bitter. I wish them the best. Everyone’s wedding should be right 4 them. I want something small on a beach but not going to complain about how others do it.

  • jwrappaport

    @Scribe38: We’re bitter because we want Lance. Let’s be honest.

  • Dxley

    Who’s “we”? Speak for your fucking self!!! I
    don’t even find him attractive and I can’t
    believe he’s getting married. LMGAO. This
    should be interesting. Is Lance really sure he’s
    done sucking all those other juicy big c*cks
    from outside? I doubt it!!!

  • Taliaferro

    @Scribe38: Look, straight couples have gone completely insane about wedding extravagance. Do we really need two gay “bridezillas” spreading that custom about our community. I wish every couple the best; I am just appalled when any couple chooses a false version of Hollywood extravaganza to make their solemn union. By the way, whenever I see, “4’ instead of four, or “U” instead of you, or other such nonsense, I immediately place that person in Gehenna. Grow up and write literate comments – or don’t write. Call me bitter, but I AM literate.

  • nokkonwud

    @Taliaferro. Fine, you’re bitter. Whatever anyone else wants to do with their nuptials is their own business. It doesn’t need your or anyone else’s approval.

  • Scribe38

    @Taliaferro: lol. Gay people have waited a long time to get married so if they CHOSE to go a little over board over a right just granted to them, that they should have had all along maybe you can open that thing you call a heart and give them a break. Very bitter, maybe if U were nicer U could find and man to marry 4 ur very own. ;)

  • Scribe38

    @Taliaferro: And I say all that in love, sweetheart.

  • CleJoke

    There’s a TOP in this couple? Who are you kidding!

  • Taliaferro

    @nokkonwud: I am entitled to my opinion just as you are yours. I expected to be flamed and I was. It does not make me bitter nor change my mind.

  • Taliaferro

    @Scribe38: I did find a man in 1984, we are still together and still happy. And we are both literate in our writing. The country is currently in a stage where excess is celebrated and over-the-top is the norm. That does not make it in good taste, necessary or valid. so in the words of the divine Miss M. go hiss and boo your own self.

  • Taliaferro

    @Scribe38: No, you say that with a smug sense of spite.

  • stanhope

    They are entitled to have whatever sort of wedding they want. That said, the groom asked looked a bit disappointed with the ring. That surely isn’t 2 months worth of salary is it? A David Yurman SILVER ring with coal chips sorry black diamonds is likely under $1,000. AND…bought at Saks Fifth Avenue? And Bass complains that there are no decent rings to be found in New Orleans. Did planes stop flying to Beverly Hills or New York? Did Cartier and Harry Winston close? The whole thing plus Lance’s dubious track record in romance gives one legitimate pause. Did you see the look on the “groom’s” face? Sorry I said that already. Someone said Lance trying to stay relevant infers that he is relevant. Really? Well best wishes to them both but that couple looks like prince up and coming actor and frog stingy with the coin.

  • stanhope

    I looked at the picture of the “happy couple” again. Looking at Lance reminded me of the news story this weekend about the leaning tower of Pisa beginning to straighten up. Lance really is not very good looking is he? Oh and did you see the look on the “groom’s” face holding up that ring? Oh I said that already. NEWSFLASH: the platinum mines are open again and Van Cleef has canary diamonds. Return the ring and upgrade FAST. The groom deserves it for laying with that face and having to summon the top skills. Buy stock in CAVERJECT!

    It’s their wedding and if it makes them happy, then good for them. I once had visions of an over the top wedding, and with SSM likely to be legal in my state sooner than most, that’s not my priority anymore. My partner’s very conservative and well heeled mother in law has offered ideas (she’s very pro SSM since I’m the only son in law she’s ever liked) and could fund a huge spectacle and honestly, we could afford one too), but really, we’ve been together almost 9 years now, and we would much rather have a small affair with the family and friends we love with a friend of mine officiating, some good food, drinks and music. (We could probably do this at our house for under 2K) and instead of gifts since we have more stuff than we need, maybe register for donations to the hospice that took care of my Dad when he was at the end of his his struggle with cancer). But hey, they’re not me, and if a six figure overblown spectacle full of people they barely know will make them happy, it’s not costing me any sleep. I’ll have my fun celebration and maybe do good for others and they can have something that looks good on E! News.

  • Geoff B

    Everybody, why fight? Whatever type of wedding anyone wants to have is their business. As long as you and your spouse are happy, that’s what matters. There’s no need to attack each other over this. What we should be doing is working together to make marriage available to the LGBT couples who don’t have it yet. And @stanhope, you raise an interesting point about the ring. My engagement ring was about 200 dollars and while we are far better off financially now, every time I look at my hand and see that ring, it reminds me of the best day of my life. I have to wonder what Lance’s fiancee is reminded of. Hopefully joy and not disappointment.

  • Dxley

    This is going to be the biggest flop EVER. I wish someone could show up at the wedding claiming that he has been sleeping with one of them. That would be the BEST thing ever. They don’t look good together and they’re both super-bottoms, so who does most of the fucking? Useless!!! I wish this wedding could result in astounding failure, I’d be so fucking happy!!!

  • Polaro

    He seems happy. Good for them both. I wish them well, even though wanting to have a crazy, over-the-top wedding would not be my choice.

  • Scribe38

    @Taliaferro: That just tells me your partner needs to reevaluate some of his life decisions, like dating trolls.

  • jwrappaport

    @Dxley: Good grief. Why do you hate these people so much? Your comment just makes me want to hug you.

  • avesraggiana

    Lance’s haircut has to go.

  • darkorient

    Never liked him but it’s up to him what he wants to do for his wedding. God, people. Disaster happens when we try to control others. Being queers, we should know better.

  • stanhope

    @Geoff B: A $200 ring given with warm and genuine intention is the most beautiful ring on Earth. Lance’s comments about the ring just vexed me. Further, to spend so little on such an off the cuff purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue would piss me off. Shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue for an engagement ring? You go there for a cute fashion ring..NOT an engagement ring that in theory you’ll wear the rest of your life. I see clouds on the horizon.

  • Dixie Rect


    Exactly right. He’s doing this for press and to stay relevant. Why go to the press and tell them? Why not just go off and have your big wedding? Lance has always been a talentless hack, trying to get something going, but it never works. As soon as the press and attention go away, expect a quick divorce.

  • Snapper59

    I remember reading at Justin Timberlake’s wedding that part of the entertainment was a film of the homeless around town wishing them well, and not knowing who they were. I understand everybody at the time laughed like it was hysterical, and then word got out that’s what they did, and naturally everyone was suddenly appalled.

  • Spike

    Just another d-list gay using his gayness to stay relevant.
