E! News co-host Kennedy marries fiancée Lauren Scruggs at the Four Seasons Resort & Club in Dallas, Texas. E! will air the wedding in the special The Kennedy Wedding: Jason and Lauren Get Married on December 22. Kennedy:
God has blessed me with somebody I’ve been waiting for my whole life. Lauren changed everything for me and I can’t believe I get to spend the rest of my life with her.
Kennedy proposes to girlfriend Lauren Scruggs by using electronic candles to spell out “Will you marry me?” below her Dallas apartment balcony. Scruggs says yes. Scruggs:
I had gone out to dinner with my roommate Friday night. When we got back home, I opened the door and the whole apartment was filled with hundreds of white tulips. There was music on. I was so confused, I had no idea what was happening. I walked onto the balcony and saw the candles. He said, ‘I have a question to ask you, can you come down here?’ He is one of the most thoughtful people I know. His proposal was the most special night – from him thinking about my favorite flower to the people most important to me being there and his whole way of asking. I am so happy.
Scruggs and her family write a memoir, Still Lolo, describing her life after losing her left hand and eye in a plane propeller accident. Scruggs describes seeing herself naked in the mirror for the first time after the accident.
From deep within me a storm of mourning brewed and broke forth. I climbed into the shower and the storm hit and the rain fell all around me. Then I crumpled onto the floor of the shower and sobbed.
