After a three-year courtship, model Courtney Bingham is finally ready to settle down and make an honest man out of Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx.
Bingham shared the news during a recent interview with PopStop TV, video from which you can watch above. Revealing that they’ve set March 15, 2014, as the date, Bingham added, “We’re really just starting to plan everything. I’m working on the dress. Anyone that’s planned a wedding knows that you need about a year to really do it, and we’re at seven months now. So I’m like, ‘OK, the clock’s ticking. It’s time to get serious.’”
When you think “Motley Crue wedding,” it’s tempting to imagine all sorts of weird bacchanalia, like flame-throwing midgets or donkeys on trampolines, with plenty of Jack Daniel’s to go around for everyone. But Bingham has a more sedate affair in mind: “It’s gonna be traditional,” she insisted. “It’s gonna be in town. But I’m very inspired by everything Parisian, so that’s kind of not super theme-y. But that’s the idea.”
As Blabbermouth notes, this isn’t the first trip down the aisle for Sixx, who was previously wed to Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt and actress Donna D’Errico. Blabbermouth’s report also pulls a quote from Crue singer Vince Neil‘s memoir, which accuses Sixx of dating for sometimes less-than-pure motives. Calling him “one of those guys who just loves the whole fame thing,” Neil argued, “He wouldn’t have been with the tattoo artist Kat Von D if she wasn’t famous. And [former ‘Baywatch’ actress] Donna D’Errico before her –she was a huge star at the time he married her. He just really likes to see his face in the paper. He likes the press buzz. He likes being that guy from the band with famous girlfriends.”
