Here is the official wedding photo of Eric Benet and Manuela Testolini.  As we reported on Sunday, Eric and Mani married.

As we reported yesterday and were asked to wait until after he ceremony until blurting it out, Eric Benet and Manuela Testolini were married in the early evening last night.  They were able to keep the wedding private and we can now tell you exclusively that they also announced that Mani is pregnant. 

Manuella dropped the pregnancy news around reception time.  The couple has been together for several years and Eric proposed over the holidays last year.  Eric was married to film star Halle Berry and Manuela was the 2nd wife to music superstar Prince.

We asked how far along is she and we were told far along enough to where it shows and to leave it at that.  Hmm.  Doesn't look like so much in the photo above. 

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Eric Benet Jordan on their marriage and having a little one on the way.  We are very happy for Manuela and Eric.-Dr.FB

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

Dita Von Teese & Mayte Turn It Out @ Avalon

So it seems we were not the only ones having trouble getting photos of Dita Von Teese & Mayte Garcia performing a couple of weeks ago.. The photo above of Dita is the only one I took before some security dude told me to chill on taking photos or else. Guess my pink wristband was for access but not photo press for this burlesque and belly dance show.

Dita Von Teese tore it up with a musical number to start off the show and ended up with her in a bathtub. She has great bodily dimensions but every time I think about Marilyn Manson, I lose interest.

Mayte was on second and got a pretty good reception from the crowd before she started her routine. Straight up, Mayte is hot like soup! She was shaking and barefoot no less obviously. Girl got abs of steel.

Another girl performed along with 2 more Dita performances but I chilled back in the VIP area where I got into a little bit of trouble. No need to get into it though.

While leaving, I was followed out right behind Perez Hilton & his "date" Jewel.  Too funny.  The future followed behind the present and soon to be the past. Jewel has been all up in Perez's butt as of late. She has to realize she will never have the success of Katy Perry or Lady Gaga so stop trying so hard to be his friend. Desperate baby. 

Back on point, had a great time with Dita & Mayte and it did turn into the ex-wives and girlfriend's club of Prince in the VIP section with Mayte (Wife #1), Manuela Testolini (Wife #2) with Eric Benet, and Carmen Electra (Go-Go Dancer #1) were all there.  Who would have thought? Purple craziness.-Dr.FB

(P.S. We got some photos of Mayte's performance and will be posting them very soon today!)

Perez Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Ellen, Prince & The Ex

In the most interesting six degrees of seperation, or in this case, 3, Perez Hilton has added more fuel to the already smoldering  Gay Marriage issue.

Just recently, this huge ongoing debate has raised eyebrows with all celebs as it comes to equal rights. 

Speaking of gays, talk show host Ellen had bisexual or confused star Lindsay Lohan appear on her show to discuss her lesbian relationship where she opened up about all things including her career.

On a side note, Prince's ex-wife got involved and posted on drfunkenberry.com's official facebook page after a tweet about Prince on his way to Ellen:

Manuela Testolini, Prince's ex-wife was the first to comment and stated:

"I hope she asks him how he  feels about gay marriage. something tells me he won't be as pointed as Miss California."

Lindsay Lohan was interviewed as we  reported earlier and not Prince. Her comments obviously stemmed from a New Yorker article from late last year that was full of misquotes as we pointed out. Perez Hilton even commented about those misquotes as well as Ann Power L.A. Times Interview.

It seems like this week with Perez Hilton's question to Miss California at the Miss USA Pageant about gay marriage has sparked fires everywhere. Even with Ex-wives.

Love see no color or gender.  Plain and simple. -Dr.FB

No. 9 The Mumbai Attacks

A Protest After The Mumbai Attacks: File Photo

The day before Thanksgiving, a vicious terrorist attack happened in Mumbai, India. The targets?  Americans.

One woman who was there on business and with two non-American business partners, herself Canadian, made a break from the terrorists, thru the kitchen and then out to a house where here and others were safe, but not sound.  The woman, Manuela Testolini, called CNN while in hiding, to let family and friends know that she is safe and give inside information on what went down. 

After several days of trying to obtain a new passport and i.d., she was out of India and flying back home.  Several of you had the victims and prisoners along with Manuela in your prayers.  She has had several requests for interviews with all the major networks and news organizations since her safe return.  All were declined.  All except Dr. Funkenberry.com

Here is a exclusive personal message from Manuela to Dr. Funkenberry's readers:

"now that i've had a chance to regroup after mumbai, i wanted to thank you all for your concern & your prayers. i am so blessed to be surrounded by such love & support, and infinitely grateful for both. much love to all of you...

xo
manuela"

Thanks to Manuela for that and here is hoping that she never charts on our top ten list for this ever again.-Dr.FB

Manuela In Mumbai Attack Update: No Real Update

The craziness is not over, and can it really be after what happened?

She is still at an undisclosed location with other people who were at the Taj Hotel when the attack happened.

For safety issues, I cannot tell you everything I know, until a later date.  But for right now, the situation is the same, where she is safe but not sound.

There are still terrorists and hostage situations going on with gunfire and explosions, so it is not an ideal situation.  The terrorists were speaking in Punjabi and are presumably from Pakistan.

Leaders in India and Pakistan are trying to let it be known that this is a situation that is not just India's problem or just Pakistan's problem, but both of their problems and they need to come together to handle it.

When I have further information I can disclose, I will post it.
 
Just remember, we are praying for everyone involved in this, not just her.

Until then. -Dr.FB

We got word of this about 6 hours ago but until we knew she was safe, I could not post it.

Manuela Testolini witnessed a terrorist attack in india earlier today and thanks to the people she was with, she was able to escape harm. She contacted friends n family thru email and later was able to call cnn from her cell.

Right now, she is safe but not sound. She and her friends are asking for your prayers right now.

We will have exclusive updates on this horrible situation when we know she is 100 percent out of harms way.

We appreciate the contact that has been made to docFB and will get the word out.

They are asking right now to keep her and everyone else caught in this in your thoughts and prayers.-Dr.FB

Update: I almost posted a photo of Manuela taken yesterday but thought better of it til we know 100 percent she is back here in the U.S., that would not be smart.
