'Selling Sunset' Star Mary Fitzgerald Hits Back At Claims Her TV Wedding Was Fake
If like us, you've been glued to Netflix's Selling Sunset, you're probably aware that last year in October, two of the show's stars - Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet - tied the knot in an intimate ceremony.
And while it went on to be one of the main storylines in the second season, recently leaked court documents have revealed that the couple actually exchanged their vows way back in March 2018.
Confused? Well, it seems fans are too, with many questioning how real the show is. However, following the speculation, Mary has now shut down the rumours, explaining why the pair had two ceremonies and insisting their October shindig was real.
"We invited all of our friends and family. We didn't tell anybody. We just signed the paper for personal reasons and then we wanted to wait until we could have our real wedding," she told Fubar Radio.
"Romain's never been married before. A wedding didn't mean that much to me. I was happy to just go on a beach in Bali and I tried very hard to do that actually. No cameras, no anything, just our closest friends."

Mary explained the gap between the civil ceremony and the wedding was due to them wanting to ensure all of their friends could make it.
"Two of my really close friends, Nicole who was the officiant and who signed as the witness, she was trying to get pregnant and then one of my other friends were too, and they can't go, so I was like, I don't want to do that. And so we just waited until we could plan and do the wedding like we wanted," she added.
Mary also emphasised how all of the couple's family and friends were at the wedding and pointed out lots of couples have civil ceremonies before the actual celebration.
Makes sense to us!
