Daily Dish: Celeb Chef Dumps Bride Days Before Wedding
Chef to the stars Todd English called off his wedding with Erica Wang, but she decided to party the night away anyway
It’s every bride-to-be’s nightmare: you go through all the work of setting up your wedding — the reception, the flowers, the cake, the honeymoon, the dress — only to be dumped days before the big ceremony. Well, our nightmare is Erica Wang’s reality, as her fiancé, Todd English, called off their wedding just days before they were scheduled to be married.
The couple met while working on the show Food Trip on PBS, and were engaged last year. English has become a multimillionaire, thanks to owning a bunch of restuarants, including Olives and Libertine in New York City. He was also a contestant on Top Chef in season 3 of the reality competition series.
But, Wang certainly had the last laugh, partying the night away with 150 friends and family members at what would have been the couple’s wedding reception at the St. Regis Hotel — which English had paid for! Most of Wang’s guests were already booked in the hotel for the weekend, so it seemed fitting to not let a good party go to waste.
“It’s just so unfortunate, but we came to support her,” said one partier. Hopefully, the lavish party cheered Wang up and made English feel like a dirtbag for dumping his bride. (New York Post)
