National Enquirer: "Neil Patrick Harris Calls Off Gay Wedding!"

[quote]The wedding is OFF! Sitcom star Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner David Burtka got engaged after the Marriage Equality Act was passed in New York in 2011, but sources tell The ENQUIRER that the gay couple abruptly called off their nuptials following a vicious lovers’ spat. “They’re barely speaking, and as of now there’s no wedding in the immediate future,” revealed an insider.

At least the babies give David an insurance policy so he'll get a decent payout.

Remember watching their 'Oprah' interview - came away with the feeling that NPH is not as in love as DB is . Just my impression. Rifting off the notion that one partner is always more in love than the other . Seems to always hold true.

NPH came off very badly in that Oprah interview. I felt bad for Burtka. He seems like he wants to make the best of it.

I also think Burtka is tired of having to accompany Neil to the opening of an envelope. And I can't blame him.

I felt like they were rushing things too much.

Not sure how long they've been together, but they seemed too intent on trying to copy heterosexual marriages with two kids and marriage.

And immediately upon marriage between two gay individuals becoming legal in New York, they immediately seemingly without much thought jumped in and said they would be getting married.

It's as if they felt obligated to get married once it became legal to do so.

1. I don't think you go on cruises with someone you're planning to leave. Too much high risk areas to dump the body.

2. Couples fight all the time. It doesn't mean they're breaking up.

3. National Enquirer may have gotten one thing correct with John Edwards but they've been wrong plenty of other times.

Remember this story from the National Enquirer about Anderson Cooper:

"ANDERSON COOPER has kicked his two-timing boy friend out of their Manhattan apartment and called off their engagement after seeing photos of the chiseled cheater kissing an other man in a New York City park."

It turned out that never happened when pictures showed up of Ben coming out of AC's apartment.

It seems the go to for National Enquirer stories on gay men is 'calling off their engagement' stories. That was also another instance where AC never once said he was engaged to be married.

I Like David burtka not NPH. The Oprah Interview was honest and amazing. And it was wonderful to see that David Burtka said he had been very depressed and how they handle it as individuals and couples. I do not think they have big problems ( all relationships go up and down, it's just the way it is) it's just that people love to create rumors. It seems like manu here feel better about yourself when you can put down other people.

The fact is that it is not legal to marry in California because of Prop 8. So what is point to marry before it becomes valid. They have already secured themselves and their children if something happen to one of them or they split up.

Why Can't people just stop hating?

by Anonymousreply 9403/01/2013

Hold on OP, your last paragraph implies that the status of Prop 8 is all or part of the reason for not getting married. Now that is a stretch, even for you.

It seems NPH has no intention of actually marrying DB, which is nobody's business and not a big deal to anyone but DB.....but the issue is NPH uses his relationship with DB endlessly. A frigging Oprah interview? Come on now!

I saw the Oprah interview and I also thought David was the maternal type. In fact NPH said he didn't bond with his kids at first which is a very daring thing to admit.

I thought it was Neil who said he always knew he was gay and it was David who dated women before. It also seemed that NPH fell head over heels for David and David took longer to come around.

My impression was that David was envious of Neil's career. When Neil told him he was hosting the Emmys David was not exactly happy. He was depressed over his career and that's why he took up cooking. I think if they do break up it'd be over career envy or the fact that David wanted more kids and Neil didn't.

Gotta tell you - they looked very happy as a couple and both seemed like great parents. They were always out and about on the ship, friendly to anyone who spoke to them. For the most part, people left them alone. They really seemed like a cute couple together and were smiling and laughing a lot, with and without the kids (they had a set of grandparents with them too).

David has expensive taste. From an interview about his new show on E, touring celeb homes.

Question: How often do you find yourself wishing you lived at the houses shown in the series?

David Burtka: So many times! My taste is really different than a lot of these extravagant homes that I go to and I have to be very political in a way as I can't put people's houses down but there were a lot of times where I had house envy and I was in awe of these properties and the amenities that they have. It really makes me look at my house, for example, and think 'we could have done that different' or 'in the next bigger house that we have, we'll do this and that'. My better half, Neil Patrick Harris, doesn't love the fact that I'm doing A-List Listings because now every house that I look at, is not good enough (laughs), there always could be something more! It conditions you, I think it's a good thing that I've seen the best of real estate which opens my minds to new ideas; it's all a good thing!

When I saw that Oprah interview and saw how David's dad was just so sweet and still bought to tears over his wife's death even though it's been a few years, I think that David must be a really nice person coming from that. His dad also seems the most accepting of his son's relationship and says Neil is his son in law. In contrast Neil's parents seem to have grudgingly accepted that he's gay. They still seem uncomfortable with it.

Based on looking at the parents, I'd guess David is loyal and not a cheating whore (as implied by some on here.) That doesn't mean he doesn't want nice things though.
