Chrisette Michele Talks Engagement, Wedding Plans
Chrisette Michele opened up about her surprise engagement to her longtime manager Doug “Biggs” Ellison during a recent visit to my online show, “The SCOOP Reloaded.” The couple, who’s known each other for over 10 years, got engaged late last month on a NYC rooftop of a recording studio. “There’s flower petals on the ground, the Empire State Building is in the background, and here he is, dropping down to one knee, and opening up a box, and I couldn’t do anything but scream and every kind of reaction I don’t think you’re suppose to have,” she said. “I never cried, I just screamed, and screamed, and screamed.”
The “Couple of Forevers” revealed that she wants to get married at Oheka Castle in Long Island, New York, but originally wanted a smaller ceremony. “See, because what I was going to do, I was going to get married here in New York City at a small spot that was just one hundred people, but then my friends started hitting me like, ‘I know I got the invite.’ Everybody’s coming!” she said. “I’m inviting Fantasia, I’m inviting Teyana [Taylor] and Iman [Shumpert], I’m inviting everybody, and I think it’s going to be one of those big things.”
