Although he’s used to performing in front of millions as a member of *NSYNC, Lance Bass still felt jitters on his wedding day.
The 35-year-old pop star married Michael Turchinlast December, and the fabulous fete will air next month for a special on E!
Lance Loves Michael: The LanceBass Wedding will be the firstcelebrity gay wedding TV special. Yes, we’ve seen two complete strangers wed (Darva Conger, anyone?!), two Kim Kardashian weddings, but not two men! Progress!
The newlyweds chatted exclusively with PerezHilton.comabout their engagement (there were two, but the first one didn’t count!) and their big day.
Lance describes his first failed proposal:
“It was in our favorite city of New Orleans. It was just that perfect timing and I just knew I wanted to propose. I got down on one knee, and then some people wanted to take pictures of us and totally ruined the whole moment.”
“I was very shocked and I was so happy. [A stranger] actually came up to Lance to say he had a story to tell him while he’s proposing. So we had to cut the proposal in half to have a conversation. I was a little pissed.”
The second one — in Africa — went much smoother! No interruptions this time, as Michael revealed:
“Lance got me a ring that I had loved, and so we just got back to our room one night, and there’s all these flower pedals on the bed, and there’s a bubble bath, candles everywhere, champagne, and chocolate. And then he does get down on one knee again and proposes, and it was so amazing.”
As for having the first gay celebrity wedding, the couple knows the significance goes beyond just the two of them. Michael explained:
“it’s very scary thinking that you’re wedding is going to be on television, everyone is just going try to find the drama in it. And they automatically know that half of the world is just going hate this no matter what just because it’s a gay wedding. But we see the bigger picture. And we know that this is going to help a lot of kids out there, and make them feel better about themselves. And that’s the reason we wanted to do this.”
Of course, no wedding would be complete without amazing food, and the grooms were treated to a custom heart-shaped lasagna courtesy of Robert Earl of Buca di Beppo fame. Lance recalled:
“He got Buca di Beppo to do the whole entire wedding, and it was some of the best food ever. It was smorgasbord, but definitely more of the Italian side. We made sure that we donated everything leftover, the flowers, the food; everything was donated because we definitely did not want that at our house.”
We’re pretty these two hunky husbands wouldn’t want to have leftovers for days!
Lance Loves Michael airs February 5th at 8:00pm on E!
Here’s what she had to say in a recent interview about her hubby Josh Kelly:
“I think over the years it’s become I was so incredibly drawn to, attracted to this man from the get go, from the moment I met him. You just fine this groove with each other, he’s literally one of my favorite people in the world to hang out with, he’s funny, charming, down to earth, decent, he’s got a really big heart…I can never see myself falling out of love with him.”
Awwww! That’s so sweet!
However, Katherine got a lot sadder when asked about her old Grey’s Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey‘s recent divorce:
“I was really sad to hear that, I knew them both and… both really great people. I think it’s always hard to have to go through something like that so publicly.”
She’s right. Parting is such sweet sorrow sometimes. Sometimes it’s not even sweet sorry, but just plain ole sorrow.
“I’m a touch person. I love intimacy… I love men! I love romance. I would love to fall deeply in love with someone, but at the same time, it’s not my everything…I was an awkward teenager. I went stag to my prom…I was a virgin until I was 20 years old! My mother was raising five kids on her own. I wasn’t just going to sit back and be a horny teenager and continue some cycle of teenage pregnancy. I wanted more opportunities.”
It’s hard to imagine Rosario being awkward, but we’ll take her word for it.
