OK! magazine has landed the photos of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s upcoming July 7th wedding for a reported $2 million. People magazine were long thought to the front runners to publish the photos, and now they are pissed. Page Six reports:
People editors broke the story of their wedding and were working hard with Eva’s reps [to secure the picture rights],” said a source close to the talks. “They were upset about losing the photos.” Other sources suggested that previous coverage in People of the couple’s rumored breakup, including a photo of Parker with another woman in New York, may have influenced the result. But a well-placed source said that had nothing to do with it, that “it was [entirely] a matter of money, straight up to the final negotiation.” Another insider said, “Everyone wanted the photos . . . but everyone knows OK! will pay [a lot].”
Wow, OK! magazine is run by some shrewd business people. We all know the public will be lining up around the building to to the the first look at the wedding of Eva Longoria and some dude. Tony Parker has won three NBA championships and I have no idea what he looks like. He could rescue me from a burning building and the next time I saw him I’d snap my fingers and say “Hey aren’t you, um…no wait, don’t tell me, uhhh…”
