You wouldn’t think Joe Francis is the type of guy for marriage, but he is out to prove that’s not the case. Francis has proposed to a beautiful L.A. reporter named Christina McLarty, whom he has been dating for four years.
Francis told Page Six that he popped the question while vacationing with McLarty in St. Tropez. However this will not be a mainstream marriage.
“We have chosen to have a civil domestic partnership because we don’t believe it’s appropriate to be married until our gay and lesbian friends are afforded the same rights as us to legally marry in the United States,” he said.
The ceremony will have 200 guests at Francis’ beachfront estate in Punta Mita, Mexico.
“The weekend will be fun, luxurious and filled with lots of surprises,” he said, revealing that music producer Quincy Jones has agreed to be his best man.
Let’s hope Christina can help get Joe’s life back on track. Let’s not forget he spent 2008 in a Florida prison on a variety of charges, along with allegedly owing casino owner Steve Wynn millions of dollars.
“Girls Gone Wild” tycoon Joe Francis told a judge today that he fears for his life, reports TMZ. “Mr. Wynn has threatened to kill me … He said he would hit me in the back of the head with a shovel and bury me in the desert.” Francis alleges that casino owner Steve Wynn has made threats against Francis over an unpaid debt.
Francis lost a $2,000,000 judgement to Wynn after Francis had a bad streak in one of Wynn’s hotels and didn’t pay up. Wynn’s lawyers hauled Francis to court today for him to reveal where he’s hiding his money.
After reading this headline, you might want to get your mind out of the gutter. While Jayde Nicole may be a Playmate – in fact, she was named 2008’s Playmate of the year – the sexy Canadian model is also involved in a slew of other projects including charity work, poker tournaments and of course, “The Hills.”
If you watch the MTV show “The Hills,” then you know that its former star, Lauren Conrad, said her goodbyes last season and now, “Laguna Beach’s” Kristin Cavallari fronts the show. So how have things changed? Nicole — who first appeared on “The Hills” last season as Brody Jenner’s girlfriend — explains.
“It’s definitely 100 per cent different,” she says (with emphasis on the 100). “It’s been a lot more dramatic and a lot more crazy, and it’s just kind of totally different from what we’re all used to.”
Both Nicole and Cavallari make no point in hiding that they’re not friends — to say it nicely — but Nicole says that could very well change one day. “It hasn’t changed as of right now, but you never know. I mean, I try to never say never because you don’t ever know what’s going to happen. If you would’ve asked me eight months ago if I would of been able to handle being around Audrina [Patridge], I would of said ‘no I can’t stand her,’ ” she admits. “But now I don’t mind her and neither one of us really have problems with each other anymore, so I don’t see us being friends in the future, but you never know.”
