Nail salon owner marries Aviva Drescher’s father

Dana Lavette Cody got her man: Real Housewives of New York City star Aviva Drescher’s father, 78-year-old George Teichner, is now her husband. Anyone who watched the Oxygen show Find Me My Man last year with South Florida matchmaker Natalie Clarice may remember that Cody was one of the bachelorettes.

Clarice was unsuccessful in her efforts; Cody, who was introduced to Bravo viewers last month on RHONY, later hooked up with the Miami Beach bon vivant on her own. The 25-year-old told that the retired “celebrity accountant” came into her salon for a mani-pedi and offered to help her with her business. “Our first meeting was a lunch meeting, and it went from there,” Cody recounted. “He asked me to dinner. And then our relationship went to a more personal level.”

Contrary to how very May-December this thing is, these two may be in it for the right reasons.

Teichner told RadarOnline: “Dana is in a much younger age-appropriate demographic than my clock time age,” the widower said. “Our coupling time-frame of reference is in ‘Nonlocality’ in which our awareness transcends ordinary understanding of space and time.” Got that?

Even Aviva is said to approve of the situation, though the Housewife did not attend the couple’s intimate wedding last weekend in Malibu, California. The ceremony was filmed for an upcoming Bravo special, according to


Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are venturing into too-cute-couple territory. For the impending nuptials, the betrotheds put out a super smiley save-the-date video, which was leaked to TMZ Sports.

With canned music in the background, we see how the engagement went down last December: Wade’s two sons, Zaire and Zion, as well as nephew Dahveon Morris, hold up the sign, “Will you marry us?” from the construction site of their house. Then came the dazzler of a rock, the nuzzling and kiss to seal the deal. The three boys again play a role in the most recent video, holding up signs that read, “Save the date.” (Aug. 30 for those living in a bomb shelter.)

Just check back on TMZ the next day; we’re sure more mushy stuff will be leaked by then.


Chloe Moretz made sure to mix pleasure with business when in town for her Friday book signing at Barnes & Noble at Sunset Place. She stars in the upcoming on-screen adaptation of young adult novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman about a young woman analyzing her life while in a coma.

Pictures appearing on show Moretz, 17, riding on a jet ski with a bearded fellow the next afternoon. Unclear who this dude was, but it certainly wasn’t rumored bf, 15-year-old aspiring model Brooklyn Beckham. Yes that would be Posh and David’s oldest son.

The appearance went well for the Carrie star: “600 fans showed up to the book signing!!!! So amazing,” Moretz captioned an Instagram video, costarring loud, screaming (mostly female) attendees.
