So Happy For Daisy Fuentes!
Posted On Feb 05, 2016
Belated congratulations to Daisy Fuentes and Richard Marx on their recent wedding over Christmas in Aspen and their wedding celebration last night at The London Hotel in Los Angeles. I was in Paris, France when the happy couple tied the knot, so imagine my surprise when a dear friend on Facebook posted live from a private party in LA last night celebrating the marriage. For those who may not know Daisy too well, she has left a significant stamp on our culture. She made inroads as a healthy Latina role model on MTV in the early nineties, created a handful of businesses that bring style and value to women’s lives, and has continued to exemplify health and wellness to many. I had the opportunity to sit down with Daisy at her bewitching Malibu beach house last spring when the big romance was still so very hush hush. Yes, she danced around those questions but it was clear that she was very much in love and I am truly happy for her. Here is an excerpt from our interview about relationships:
NEW YOU: To look at your past relationships, it would appear that you have a soft spot for musicians.
DAISY FUENTES: I think musicians love me! If I were a lawyer, I’d be dating a judge. It’s the business that I am in. I try to not overthink it too much, but it only makes sense that I meet the people I meet.
NY: What have you learned from your relationships?
DF: I’ve learned that I love relationships. I love men, I love dating. I don’t need them from my life but I love it all and I want it. The most important thing I’ve learned is to build a life I’m completely content with. Happiness is found within yourself, not beside someone else.
NY: Do you think some people go into a relationship the wrong way?
DF: Many of us are looking for someone to make our lives a little brighter. But if something happens and they go away, your life should just continue to be wonderful. If something happens in your relationship and you feel like your world has ended and you have to start from scratch again, that’s a lot for anyone to withstand. I’ve made it so that I am so fulfilled and so complete that I welcome anyone into my life and it’s OK for anyone to leave – just don’t block the doorway.
NY: You co-wrote and produced a very sexy video with Richard Marx recently. Why did you feel compelled to co-wrIte the song, “Beautiful Goodbye” with Richard?
DF: He’s a man known for writing beautiful love songs. He was writing a record, in which the music is a little bit sexier, and I thought it would be interesting to write something – about that kind of relationship that you know is not going to be an “always and forever.” Those relationships happen, and sometimes you know you’re going to be with someone for a limited amount of time. That is good, too. I believe that you can have a wonderful relationship for a few months or a few years, and it doesn’t mean it’s a failure. The song is from the point of view of a person who knows that this is going to end but it’s still wonderful.
I had to sneak in the question of whether she and Richard were dating but she quickly brushed that aside laughing while adding, “That’s for me to know and you to find out.”
Well Daisy, I am happy to find out that this was definitely going to be an “always and forever” loving story. Congratulations my friend, may you and Richard celebrate many years of joy and happiness together!
