First, let me congratulate Jerry Hall on her nuptials this past week, and then I have to say “haters stop hating (it’s such¬†unbecoming behavior). Just be happy!”

At the sunset of her fifth decade, the decade Coco Chanel once remarked “.. at 50 you get the face you deserve,” Jerry Hall is still a ravishing beauty. I’ll let you in on her great beauty secret – the “gold digger” you relish casting her as is actually an extremely generous and gracious soul. BTW, I do agree with Chanel, by 50, beauty truly does emanate from within, so I’d be careful about throwing those stones.

I can’t really speak for her betrothed as I have never met the man personally, but I’d be willing to wager Mr. Murdoch brings much more to the table than his billions. I’m sure he challenges her and keeps her on her toes, and she needs that. Don’t let that infectious Texan drawl and beauty fool you, Jerry is no dumb blonde – she is highly intelligent, a great conversationalist, and extremely witty. ¬†Anything less in a partner would bore her.

Jerry also brings much more to the matrimonial table than you give her credit for. She is such a naturally loving person and exceedingly loyal. The last time I saw Jerry she had just returned a 500k advance she received for her biography when the publisher demanded she dish more dirt on Mick. As much as I adore Mick, let’s not forget he is a naughty boy, and his dalliances were rubbed in her face publically throughout their long union. I think it speaks volumes to her character that she chose to respect the father of her children over money, and hardly the actions I would equate with a gold digger.

I haven’t seen Jerry for a few years, but I do know her well enough to know the joy I see in her eyes in those wedding photos is real. She may have achieved huge success in more than one career, but down deep inside, she has always longed to be a wife. I’m sure her husband’s wealth doesn’t hurt, but let’s get real here – who among us doesn’t want security and a few creature comforts? I say kudos for finding a man that can give you all your heart desires, and I wish you both all the happiness in the world!
