We have learned exclusively that Eric Benet and Manuela Testolini were JUST married in a private location in Southern California.  Like, just married.  They are having the dinner reception right now. 

We are being told the ceremony was beautiful and the vows had everyone in tears.  Eric  has one marriage previously to Halle Berry and Manuela has one previously as well to music star Prince.

Manuela posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:

love is not finding someone u can live with... It's finding someone u can't live without.

The stars in attendance were Sam Jackson, Neicy Nash and Mayte Garcia, Prince's first wife. 

We will have more news from the wedding shortly.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  It Was A Nice Day For A White Wedding

Love most certainly is NOT about settling one's hopes upon "a person you can't live without". That is a recipe for disaster and reflects an extremely immature outlook. Noone of us was born to be another person's savior. Jesus has that base covered. (Lasting) love is about a whole person deciding to build a meaningful relationship with another whole person. It's about mutually complementing one another. Give and take. Balance. Emotional intensity waxes and wanes. It is commitment that binds - and keeps- people together. Whatever Halle's shortcoming(s) might be, Mr. Benet has quite the reputation as a womanizer. Whatever Prince's shortcoming(s) might be, Manuela's reputation has never been publicly called into question. She seems, except for this choice to marry a serial cheater with a fledgling professional career, to be pretty down to earth. Let's hope for the best, for her sake.

Hey Doc, Manuela and not Maneula or Manuella. And Mayte Garcia and not Garica. Ciao

@Chocalate_BOX777 - I doubt we would hear anything we don't already know. Both Prince and Halle Berry have been divorced twice. I think Manula's post on her Facebook page is very revealing. Maybe Prince and Halle Berry look at the outer appearance and make the decision to marry. It doesn't last because they lose interest and quickly move on to the next person they can live with. Manuela accepts Eric Benet because many women would be leery about marrying him. I heard they stopped seeing each other but got back together. I think these two have something real unlike Prince and Halle who seem like they move on to the next relationship too quickly. Eric and Manuela seems like they don't want to live without each other. I wonder how soon it will be before Prince and Halle decide to marry again?

  1. [...] Eric Benet and wife Manuela Testolini-Benet welcomed a little girl named Lucia, December 20th.  This is Manuela’s first child and Eric’s second.  Eric has a daughter from a previous relationship named India.  Eric seems like he’s a very happy man right now.  When asked who Lucia looks like so far Eric responded, “the angel that won this years beauty pageant in heaven .”  Unless this went completely over my head, I think he means the former Miss Venezuela Eva Ekall, who died of cancer about a week ago.
