'Pawn Stars' Wedding: Rick Harrison Sets July Date with Girlfriend Deanna Burditt
"Pawn Stars" cast member Rick Harrison and his girlfriend Deanna Burditt announced on Wednesday that they set the date for their wedding: July 21.
The ceremony - initially planned to take place in Las Vegas - will be held at the Ritz Carlton in Southern California's Laguna Beach, according to People. Harrison said History Channel's "Counting Cars" star Danny Koker will become an ordained minister and marry the couple, and his "Pawn Stars" costar Chumlee will be the ring bearer.
"It will be a lot of friends and family," Harrison said Wednesday at the opening of Wynn Las Vegas's Andrea's. "It started off with about 40 people and it's well over 100 people now. You know how those things go."
The 47-year-old also revealed he his girlfriend left him with all the planning, though he had no idea how much it really entails.
"I can't make that up," he said. "I just had no idea there was so much involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg. But we're getting it done."
In November of 2012, police fined Harrison and his son, Corey Harrison, for allegedly leaving trash at a state campground in California. The two camped in Glamis, Calif., over Thanksgiving weekend with friends and they reportedly left garbage all around the place. Leaving trash on campgrounds is illegal and a misdemeanor crime in the state of California, and so the History Channel stars were fined $1,000 a person.
That same month, a talent agency filed a $5 million lawsuit against "Pawn Stars" cast members, including the Harrisons, Venture IAB Inc. signed with the stars in 2007 but claimed they lost massive amounts in commissions afterwards when the show's executives steered the cast toward another agent.
"Pawn Stars" airs Mondays at 10/9 p.m. Central.
