Medford native and television star Maria Menounos and fiance Keven Undergaro made it a New Year’s Eve to remember with a surprise televised Times Square wedding officiated by Steve Harvey.
“Omg! I can’t believe we are finally getting married after 20 years! Tune in to #nye on @foxtv to watch us get hitched in just a few!#coldestbridever,” the Emerson grad tweeted a little more than three hours before the anticipated ball drop.
Harvey — who was hosting New Year’s Eve coverage on Fox along with Menounos — officially became ordained, “as of about 48 hours ago courtesy of the Internet,” he joked moments before officiating the brief ceremony.
“We often say that a bride and groom declare their love in front of the whole world, but this time that’s for real,” Harvey said right before the couple exchanged their emotional vows.
“I was afraid of the big C word — the commitment word,” Undergaro said as part of his vows.
“Maria, you are a blessing, not just to my life, but an even bigger blessing to the entire world,” Undergaro added to Menounos, who in June had a benign brain tumor removed on her 39th birthday.
“When I couldn’t fight anymore, you fought,” Menounos said “You stood tall.”
“I can’t believe this is happening right now,” she said before the couple shared their first kiss as husband and wife in the final few moments of 2017.
Menounos and Undergaro are no strangers to publicly broadcast displays of affection — the two were engaged on “The Howard Stern Show” in March 2016.

When longtime friends Mike Speights and John Bauer quit their finance jobs to cofound the Foodery, their idea was simple enough: Prepare and deliver healthy, ready-to-reheat meals to people’s doors. “We were both struggling to eat healthy as busy professionals,” Speights says, constantly relying on takeout. “We figured if we have this problem, others must have it, too.”Continue reading »
