Chelsea Clinton Getting Married: True or April Fools?

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky Engaged

Or … just the National Enquirer?

Take this story with a grain of salt. Well, more than a grain of salt. Take this story with like the amount of thick chunks of salt you’d get around the rim of a margarita glass. Actually, no. Take this story with a margarita. And then another. Because it has been THAT KIND OF DAY, right?

The 29-year-old former first daughter is tying the knot this summer in a lavish $1 million dream wedding, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. The groom-to-be is Wall Street whiz kid Marc Mezvinsky, 31, a longtime pal who became Chelsea’s serious boyfriend after she split from college beau Ian Klaus in 2005.

“Chelsea hasn’t even admitted that she’s engaged to Marc, but that’s not stopping her from planning a wedding,” a pal revealed. “She’s always dreamed of having a special wedding, and these days that could set her parents back a million dollars, but they’d give her anything her heart desires for the event.”

The timing for a wedding is perfect now that mom Hillary is settling into her position as secretary of state, and Marc’s father, former Iowa congressman Ed Mezvinsky, has been released from a halfway house after serving time for investment fraud, sources say.

And with a combined income of more than $109 million in the past eight years, the Clintons can afford the best wedding money can buy. The bride-to-be favors tying the knot on a hill at sunset overlooking the ocean, pals say, making Martha’s Vineyard or Hilton Head Island possible wedding sites.

“Hilton Head is a good bet because that’s where she met Marc in 1993 at a Renaissance Weekend, an annual event for heavy-hitters that their families attended,” the insider divulged. “Marc has worked very hard at becoming a successful trader, and his love for Chelsea is real,” said the pal.

“Bill and Hillary already treat him like a son, and Marc’s father and mother adore Chelsea.”

So I don’t know if this is true or not, but, if it is, good for Chelsea. I don’t know how you manage to find “true love” when your father is President Clinton. How could you ever know if someone loves you for who you are or for who your father is? I’d always be so confused. But I hope this is for real, and I’m happy for her. Plus: He’s a total cutie!
