Trista’s agent sues for cut of $1 million.
Trista Rehn’s agent is suing her for a cut of the $1 million that she and Ryan Sutter are getting paid to have their wedding televised. Kevin Allyn wants $200,000–20 percent of the fee he says he negotiated. Meanwhile, The Bachelorette wedding is apparently taking place over the next four days. According to a report in The Desert Sun, “a ‘lockdown’ will be in effect at the [Lodge at Rancho Mirage] property from 3 p.m. today though 10:30 a.m. Sunday.” That jibes with an earlier report that the wedding would take place on Dec. 6 and air Dec. 10. The second part of the wedding “series” airs tonight and includes the bachelor and bachelorette parties. According to ABC, “Even Bob Guiney … travels to the island to participate in the fun and offer the happy couple his good wishes”–and to strip at the bachelorette party?
