Not known for his brevity behind the mike, radio talkmeister Rush Limbaugh limited himself yesterday to two important words—“I do.”
The popular conservative pundit, 59, married his girlfrend, Kathryn Rogers, 33, in a Hawaiian-themed ceremony Saturday in Palm Beach, The Daily News reported. It was Limbaugh’s fourth trip to the aisle.
The newlyweds previously hosted a rehearsal dinner for 400 family and friends at the Breakers Friday night. At hand were 50 extra security guards for the event.
The wedding ceremony was highlighted by the appearance of Sir Elton John who, according to The Palm Beach Post, will receive $1 million for playing the reception at the Breakers Hotel. It was an unusual pairing between the right-wing Limbaugh and the gay music superstar.
Limbaugh first met his future bride six years ago at a celebrity golf tournament that she ran. At the time the radio personality was divorcing his third wife Marta. The couple had been dating for three years.
“We try to live our lives as normal people,” Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail to the Post’s Page 2 Live section prior to the wedding. “We do NOT seek media attention, we do not want it, especially for this. It is very special, obviously, and we just don’t want any media attention.”
