Steve Lavin Cancels Wedding After Overbooking Guest List

LYING LARDASS LAVIN STILL KEEPING UP APPEARANCES: BRUINS NATION lets us know that our favorite lying lardass, Steve Lavin, is keeping up appearances by moving his wedding to the gorgeous (blind and deaf?) Mary Ann Jarou (pictured below) to Europe at the last second after claiming too many people RSVP’d to their Laguna Beach nuptials.

Mary Ann Jarou

As a result, our wedding guest list has far exceeded the maximum capacity for a traditional ceremony and reception at The Montage Resort.

Steve Lavin


After giving serious consideration to alternative plans we have decided the best option at this late stage is to head to Europe to create a magical wedding day. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconveniences this change in our wedding plans may have caused you.

Steve Lavin Erin Andrews


We are sorry that we will not be able to share our big day with family and friends. We will be sure to send you photos of our wedding upon our return from Europe.

The person (”yellcrew”) who originally posted the piece at the UCLA-based website says it best: “it should (now) be pretty much clear to everyone else why we have found Lavin to be so detestable, dishonest, scumbag, and a fraud all these years.


John Wooden was originally scheduled to be best man at the halotosis-impaired (yes, we did inhale, unknowingly at a UCLA postgame presser years ago) one’s wedding. Think he’s making the trip for the couple’s magical day in Belgium?
