Petra Ecclestone

The Wedding You Could

NEVER Afford

It's amazing ... Petra Ecclestone blew $85 million on Candy Spelling's 57,000 mansion, and she could still afford a wedding that rivaled the one recently thrown for those 2 kids in England.

Petra tied the knot with businessman James Stunt in Italy yesterday, in the same village where Tom and Katie got hitched.  But this wedding was a lot more expensive -- reportedly more than $5 mil -- and a lot grander.

For starters, Andrea Bocelli was there performing "Time to Say Goodbye," the first dance was courtesy of Eric Clapton, and the crowd then danced to The Black Eyed Peas.  BTW, Peas don't come cheap -- $2.4 million for the live appearance.

Petra -- the daughter of Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone -- was decked out in a $130,000 Vera Wang special.

Guests guzzled wine at $6,500 a bottle -- Chateau Petrus, of course.

And, of course, Paris, Nicky and Kathy Hilton were there.

Wait till Petra Petra's dad gets the credit card statement.

You can throw whatever amount of money on a wedding but you can never buy a happy marriage!

PRO US    

Her father makes billions of dollars from snobby, deluded, manipulated, foolish suckers who pay for tickets to watch F1 cars go around and around ad nauseum ad infinitum on closed courses and for overpriced F1 merchandise. Almost inevitably, one of the drivers of the car team with the best and fastest engine wins the season's trophy. For example when Jacques Villeneuve had the fastest car, he won that season. As soon as he switched teams and drove another car with a different engine, he never won again. People who root for engines are idiots. Sadly, there's millions of idiots who put billions of dollars in profits into the hands of the Ecclestone family and this idiot Petra pisses it away with decadent, obscene displays of tasteless wealth.

Okay, all I have to say here is "are you effing kidding me Black Eyed Peas"?...2.4 million dollars??? They are NOT that good, I dont know what all the fuss is about. I recall when Brad and Jen had the Gypsy Kings play at their wedding for 100k. Not the same type of music, but seemed like a much better deal!

Daddys money, only in her name. $130,000 Vera Wang Special? Didn't Kardashian have 3 Vera Wang's. Never mind they were off the rack. Kardashian picked one. Guessing Kardashians were not invited.

Well her father routinely extorts as much money as he can for races getting the Middle eastern princes to give a big donation for a series that has never intersted me. If the Euros keep giving him money for nothing then his daughter is going to live like a rock star.

"Petra tied the knot with businessman James Stunt in Italy yesterday".
Though Italy is smaller than the US, it's after all bigger than Monaco. So, why don't tell us where in Italy? The ceremony took place yesterday: why is TMZ so unusually discreet today?
