A furious woman stormed into a church with her children to demand a wedding ceremony be stopped – because the groom was her husband.

Groom Abraham Muyunda allegedly told his wife earlier in the day he was going of town for work, but actually was going to attend his own wedding.

The drama happened at a Catholic church in Chainda in the Zambian capital of Lusaka, reports the Zambian Observer.

Mr Muyunda’s alleged wife, named locally as Caroline Mubita, apparently heard about the wedding from neighbours and rushed to the church to put a stop to the proceedings.

She is heard saying in the footage: ‘Father, this wedding cannot go on. This man right here is my husband. I don’t know what is happening here.’

Click here to read the full article.

They say truth is stranger than fiction, but more often than not it’s much sadder too. Where fiction likes to wrap things up in a tidy bow, real life is all about calculated compromise. In the case of Iván Garcia and Gerardo Zabaleta, whose touching love story is dramatized in the timely drama “I Carry You With Me,” the choice between a life together in the U.S. or with family in Mexico has no clear-cut answers. The narrative feature debut of Oscar-nominated documentarian Heidi Ewing (“Jesus Camp”),

“I Carry You With Me” operates on three separate timelines, often jumping between with little rhyme or reason. Ewing intercuts footage of the real Iván, now in early middle age and a successful chef in New York City, alongside the talented actor (Armando Espitia) dramatizing his life as a young man in Puebla, Mexico, with occasional

Gucci and The Real Real’s Game Changing Collaboration Is Look at the Future of Fashion

On Monday, luxury consignment website The Real Real announced an exciting collaboration called the Gucci x TRR Shop. It’s exactly what it sounds like; a curated and authenticated shop full of previously-loved Gucci goods.

Seems simple, sure, but in the world of luxury bags and accessories, it’s actually pretty groundbreaking. Not only is Gucci encouraging customers to consign its used items through this program, but the brand is also incentivizing people to purchase secondhand as well. According to a press release, for every item bought or sold, they will plant one tree through the One Tree Planted program.

For a long time, many of the big fashion houses claimed that the consignment industry was cheapening their brand by taking away the exclusivity factor.
