Paris Hilton married America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan in a 15-minute ceremony at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas.
But the whole ceremony was a publicity stunt for Morgan’s latest upcoming TV special, Piers Morgan On…Las Vegas.
The couple exchanged vows, dressed for the part–complete with an Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe impersonator. Morgan proposed to journalist Celia Walden in Paris, France earlier this month so the ceremony served as good practice for the big date.
Paris was good-natured about the event and knows exactly how insane Vegas can be. “You can do anything here – it’s crazy! What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”
Morgan agreed, “You know what it’s like – you have a few drinks, spend too long on the blackjack table, get overexcited and do something silly. I have to say, Paris scrubbed up to be a beautiful bride. It was magical.”
I don’t think Paris would ever get married in Vegas but I could be wrong. People do crazy things when they’re in love! She has been quoted before as saying, “I’d imagine my wedding as a fairy tale…huge, beautiful and white.” I’m sure it will be a show stopper.
Piers Morgan On…Las Vegas will air Saturday, January 2 on ITV1. You can check out a video of the event here.
