Judge Judy Marries Pianist Michael Feinstein and Terrence Flannery

Singer and pianist Michael Feinstein married Terrence Flannery, his partner of 11 years, on Friday in Los Angeles.

FeinsteinBroadway World reported: "The wedding ceremony, which is to be officiated by close friend Judge Judy Scheindlin, will take place on the couple’s estate in Los Angeles. Feinstein and Flannery will celebrate their nuptials with 115 of their close friends, including Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, David Hyde Pierce, Doris Roberts, Joan Collins and Henry Winkler. There will also be special performances by Liza Minnelli and Barry Manilow in honor of the couple’s special day. In spite of the much opposed Proposition 8, the initiative measure currently on the 2008 California General Election ballot entitled 'Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry,' the couple firmly believes that their blessed union will be legally recognized as long as they both shall live."

Last month, Feinstein released his 24th album.

  1. Is it just the photograph? Liza looks much much better.

    Is Judge Judy a part-time rabbi? (just joking, y'all)

  2. I was going to say the same thing. Liza looks amazing. She lost some weight and looks much younger than she did a while back!

  3. Joan Collins is smart to sit next to Barbara Walters like that. Makes her look youthful in comparison!

  4. Because they were...Lucky Bitches!

  5. Liza looks fabulous! She was a little chunky when she was guest starring on "Arrested Development", but I saw her earlier this year in person at the Providence Performing Arts Center, and she looked and sounded phenomenal!

    Just brought the house down when she closed with "I'll be seeing you", a Capella. Not a dry eye in the place!

  7. I should be so lucky to not only be married to Judge Judy , but to have Liza, Joan , & Barry attend the service.
    when you look up the term "gay marriage" in the dictionary, these photos appear.

  8. Normally, I'd simply be happy for them but, YET AGAIN, we have an example of gays and their friends' narcissism.

    With so many entertainers in attendance why wasn't this a variation on the countless couples who have asked that in lieu of wedding gifts guests donate to No On Prop 8 and that Minelli/Manilow performance turned into a fundraising show for the same thing???

    The Yes on 8 bigots aren't our greatest enemy....but the narcissism/solipsism of so many in our own community.

    With apologies to "A Chorus Line," sing out, Louise: "Kiss [marriage] goodbye, and point me toward [the open bar]."

  9. They should ask Judge Judy record an anti-Prop 8 ad! She's a good supporter.

  10. oh my.. joan collins looks younger than liza ! .. and barry is scary.. does this mean he's out of the closet this week ? congrats to the happy couple and i do hope some of these folks are doing something to help defeat prop 8. btw, don't the florists, jewelers, bakeries, etc. have a stake in this election ? where are their ads ? sadly, the 'official' ads so far have been terribly lame.. i thought we were supposed to be the creative ones ?!

  11. Flannery and Feinstein

    Well, isn't it wonderful that it's a mixed marriage also. I just hope Feinstein's mother can deal with. I'm sure she wanted him to marry a doctor.

    What's a male shicksa?

  12. Liza Minnelli was on TODAY with Al Roker this morning and she looked beautiful. As for pictures of celebrities and ordinary Joes and Janes as well, as Jennifer Anniston said: "the only difference between how Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama looked (in a recent photograph) was the lighting." I saw that same pic of Obama with Clinton hovering in the background and she looked 100--he 35!

  13. I see Barry Manondownlow is not there with his MALE life partner. What a sad old closet case. I guess she's gotta keep her old lady audience deluded.

  15. lmao joe!

  17. Barbara Walthers! GOOD ONE!

  18. Derrick From Philly, a male shiksa is a shegetz, pronounced "shay-getz."

    And this completes your daily lesson in Yiddish from a goy.

  19. I doubt that Barry's mother, grandmother and grandfather would be very proud to know he is would his female fan base. I feel sorry for him..........

    Posted by: Barbie | Oct 21, 2008 3:49:48 PM

  20. Give Barry a break...he has devoted himself to his career and has an amazing loyal fan base....young, old, white, black, gay, straight and doesn’t need fucking morons like you criticizing him...take a look at your own sorry sad lives.

    His private life is just that private and it has nothing to do with anyone else!

  22. Get used to it, honey. Like it or not you won't stop it.

    Posted by: RedCedar | Mar 19, 2009 9:47:27 PM

  23. I think this is wonderful. I have always loved Michael Feinstein and happiness is what is important in life. I hope that Michael and Terrence will have an abundance of love and joy in their lives together.

    And to the detractors, get a life. These men deserve a totally normal just as you feel you do. You are the freak for being so narrowminded.

  24. It just gets better (+ now you're gay)! I'm made up for you Boyz as I am for John and Chris who have been great friends since coming for breakfast after the night they met 15yrs ago and are getting married 26.09.14 in Manchester! Yay! Good Luck with everything youse do.
