Movie star Rosie Perez has fallen out with her actor cousin Sixto Ramos after failing to invite him to her surprise wedding in Las Vegas last month (Sep13). The Do The Right Thing actress wed artist Eric Hays in a low-key ceremony in Sin City, after he suggested they tie the knot there following the boxing match between undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Canelo Alvarez on 14 September (13).
Perez broke the news to Shaft star Ramos in a quick phone call before walking down the aisle, but he was far from pleased - and he's still furious with her five weeks later.
She says, "He's angry at me but everything's fine! (He's angry at me) because he didn't go to the wedding, but I told him we were eloping and when you're eloping, (guests) don't go to the wedding... only the two people (getting married).
"I told him (we were eloping) because I was nervous that he was gonna (sic) be angry. I said, 'Hi Sixto, we're gonna (sic) get married' and he said, 'What?' I said, 'Yeah, we're here in Vegas so we're gonna do it', and he went, 'What about me?' And he told me I was selfish, and I was a b**ch, and he had a nice suit... He was so angry... I just ignore him. He's stupid."
Actress Rosie Perez has confirmed reports she wed in secret last month (Sep13). The Do The Right Thing star wed artist Eric Hayes in Las Vegas after he suggested they tie the knot there after attending the Floyd Mayweather, Jr./Canelo Alvarez boxing match on 14 September (13).
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (16Oct13), Perez cooed, "He is the best guy ever. I'm so in love, it's disgusting.... We've been together almost five years but I've known him for 18 years, and I kept forgetting who he was.
"I was just like, 'Hi, I'm Rose,' and he goes, 'We met, you did this before, like four or five times...' By the eighth time I went, 'Who is that...? I just got all flustered and everything and he came over and he told me he was single and we've been together ever since."
But the wedding came as a bit of a surprise for the actress, who adds, "He wanted a big wedding and I was like, 'Why spend all that money... It's such a waste. It's about me and you coming together.' I said, 'Let's go to City Hall,' and he was like, 'No, I really want a wedding'.
"Then we were going to the Mayweather fight... and I'm saying, 'Oh my gosh, I bet Mayweather's gonna win... This is gonna be the perfect weekend,' and he said, 'You know what would be perfect? If we got married in Vegas.' I went, 'Yeah, oh my God, that's awesome!' But in the back of my head I'm going, 'He's not serious.'
"We get to Vegas and he starts telling me about the MGM Grand chapel package and everything... and so Mayweather won and we got married the next day and it was beautiful. It wasn't tacky; I thought it was gonna be tacky."
