Maria Menounos’ tough year ended on a high note. The TV personality decided to marry her beau of 20 years, Keven Undergaroduringlast night’s Fox’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. And the nuptials were officiated by none other than Steve Harvey. And it seems that Twitter was not here for this wedding—deeming the wedding awkward.
“When I started working on the Fox New Year’s Eve special, I sat with the producer to go over what we were planning,” Menounos told People adding the producer wanted a couple to get married on live tv. “She said, ‘Unless you and Keven want to get married.’ And I was like, ‘Ha, ha, no.’ I was nervous but I got in the car and kept thinking about it and I was like, Wait, this really is kind of perfect.”
But Keven had a plan.“So I get this text and little does she know that I’ve been talking to Beth Stern [and] Howard Stern for about a year, coming up with a date to do a surprise wedding on his show. We had everything planned out. She sends me this text and I’m freezing, Now what do I do?”
This year was rocky for Maria who was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor over the summer. The couple planned a New Year’s Day brunch for family and friends since they were only able to invite immediate family to the live wedding.
