Wal-Mart Heiress Paige Laurie: Off the Market

This celebrity news item comes a bit late, but what can I say? I wasn’t on the invite list.

The infamous Paige Laurie tied the knot June 14.

Word is that Missouri’s most eligible bachelorette, Wal-Mart heiress Paige Laurie, got hitched earlier this month in a secretive wedding in her hometown of Columbia.

I heard about the event only yesterday when a woman who worked the wedding absentmindedly told me about the soirée — and then begged me not to repeat the news. Like everyone who worked the wedding, my source was forced to sign a confidentiality agreement promising she would not discuss the nuptials. The pact has apparently worked well, as I can’t find a single news article about the ceremony on Google or LexisNexis.

Why all the secrecy? My guess is that Laurie’s billionaire parents, Bill and Nancy Laurie, are still reeling from the 2004 cheating scandal involving their only child.
