[Blind Gossip] One American actress is sending an entire foreign family into a tizzy!
This very famous and very rich foreign man is talking about proposing marriage to his girlfriend.
No, he has not purchased a ring yet. Right now he is just floating the idea to his family. The only problem? They are uniformly pushing back on his choice of a bride!
He fancies her quite a bit. Unfortunately, there is not a single member of the family who is encouraging the match!
His father is warning him that “a woman who is dramatic will be a problem.” [His brother] is telling him that he “is still young and has scads of time” to settle down.
Surprisingly, [his brother’s wife] has abstained from critiquing [the actress] directly. However, she has cautioned [her husband] that she thinks that [the actress] is “an opportunist” who “will do or say or be anything she has to” in order to make the marriage happen. She also thinks that he is “too smitten to be making good decisions right now.”
The biggest influence on everyone, though, will be [his grandmother]. She has seen how one bad apple can place the entire family and their legacy in turmoil. She is encouraging both [father] and [brother] to “discourage” his choice as “unsuitable.”
The relationship is not a long one, so it will be interesting to see if the man will give it some time before making such a life-altering (and history-altering?) decision.
