Kathy Griffin gave a sweet nod to her first date with new husband Randy Bick on their wedding day.

The 59-year-old tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend during a surprise New Year’s Eve ceremony, just minutes after she had announced their engagement on social media.

Kathy donned a white, short-sleeved Diane Von Furstenberg gown for the nuptials – which were officiated by Lily Tomlin – and she later revealed that the dress was actually the same one she wore on the couple’s first date back in 2011.

“This was our first formal date in September 2011! We are in the back of a limo provided by the one only @GloriaEstefan because her team arranged for me to surprise her as a backup ‘dancer’ when she performed at the Alma awards!” she wrote on Twitter, alongside a nine-year-old photo of her wearing the dress sitting alongside Randy in the limo.

She then explained that she had asked her new husband to pick out his favourite of her long dresses for their wedding, and he chose the elegant number.

“He picked out this dress and showed me this photo. Romance is hotttt again (sic),” Kathy added.

Meanwhile, the couple has also decided to shun wearing traditional wedding rings to symbolise their commitment to one another, simply because they dislike wearing them.

“Neither one of us like wearing rings ever. So we will never wear rings. Deal with it,” she told People.

Kathy and Randy began dating in 2011 after meeting at a food and wine festival, and briefly broke up in November 2018, before reconciling a few months later.

Cher slams Melania Trump for wearing offensive jacket to visit detained migrant kids

Cher led the fierce celebrity criticism of U.S. First Lady Melania Trump after she donned a jacket with an insensitive slogan while visiting detained migrant children on Thursday (21Jun18).

Over 2,300 immigrant minors have been separated from their parents since May (18) under President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance policy, regarding illegal crossings over the Mexico border into the U.S., with Pentagon officials confirming up to 20,000 kids are headed to military bases to be temporarily housed.

The outcry over the strict enforcement forced Trump to walk back his administration’s policy to take children from their parents on Wednesday, and the following day, his wife Melania paid a surprise visit to one of the detainment centres to check in on the youngsters.

However, Melania has since been slammed for displaying extreme insensitivity by turning up to the internment facility wearing a $39 (£30) jacket from Zara with the words ‘I Really Don’t Care, Do U?’ emblazoned on the back of the garment, which critics have branded tone deaf and insulting, insisting it was a cruel choice of wardrobe for the nature of her visit.

Cher was among the First Lady’s detractors and took to her Twitter account to express her disgust with the outfit choice. “Melania in her’I don’t care jacket’ JUST’HAPPENED’TO SHOW UP UNANNOUNCED..TO DOCTORS,

SOCIAL WORKERS,&MEDICAL STAFF (sic),” the Believe hitmaker fumed. “WERE THEY THE SAME STAFF WHO LOCKED CRYING TODDLERS IN CAGES!? THE SAME STAFF WHO MADE THEM SLEEP ON FLOORS WITH TINFOIL BLANKETS!?”

Cher went on to criticise Melania’s detention centre visit as a publicity stunt to help her husband’s plummeting approval ratings over his deeply unpopular family separation policy.

“MELANIA’S SURPRISE VISIT WAS 2HELP trump’s UNSURPRISING SAGGING POLL NUMBERS,” she commented. “AMERICANS DONT LIKE PRES.SENATORS,OR CONGRESSMEN WHO PUT BABIES IN INTERNMENT NURSERIES,TODDLER IN KIDDIE JAIL,OR CHILDREN IN KINDERGARTEN LOCKUP trump’s EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT HELP’THESE CHILDREN (sic)”.

Melania, who has been pushing a #BeBest anti-bullying campaign as First Lady, has also been pummeled with criticism by other celebrities, such as comedienne Kathy Griffin, who feuded with the Trump family last year (17) after posing in a staged photo that features her holding a fake decapitated President Trump head.

“wearing a jacket that says ‘I really don’t care, do u’ at a time where the Trumps are being accused of not caring is a big f**king mistake,” Griffin tweeted.

Academy Award-winning actress Patricia Arquette jumped into the discussion by comparing wealthy Melania to Marie Antoinette, the decadent last Queen of France before the French Revolution, who is famously quoted as telling starving poor people to “eat cake”.

“Melania Trump attempts her fashion spin on let them eat cake! Meanwhile toddlers are locked in cages. This administration is a who’s who of Classless bottom dwellers,” Arquette wrote.

In response to the social media attacks, First Lady Melania’s communications director Stephanie Grisham insisted in a statement there was “no hidden message” in the former model’s ill-advised choice of attire and that the mother-of-one just wanted to see how the migrant children were doing.

“She wanted to see everything for herself,” Grisham said. “She supports family reunification. She thinks that it’s important that children stay with their families. She’s seen the images. She’s heard the recordings (of children crying). She was on top of the situation before any of that came out. She was concerned about it. The images (of migrant children being separated from their parents) struck her, as a mother, as a human being.”

President Trump has since also taken to his Twitter account to comment on Melania’s clothing controversy, insisting the words on her jacket were a message to the “Fake News Media”.
