'Bam's Unholy Union' stars Bam Margera, Missy Rothstein get married


By Christopher Rocchio, 02/06/2007 

MTV's reality series Bam's Unholy Union follows Bam Margera and Missy Rothstein as they prepare for their wedding -- but the former Jackass star said he's confident his marriage won't fall for the curse that has already claimed Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson as well as Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler as victims.

"When a celebrity and another celebrity try to make it work, it usually winds up in a divorce because they're too busy doing their own thing," Margera recently told The New York Daily News.  "Not to mention their 'thing' consists of frenching other people in movies. I don't care if you're an actor, people get jealous."

Margera and Rothstein, his childhood friend, got married on Saturday, People reported in its website Monday evening. The couple plans to honeymoon in Dubai, but before they were even married, Margera made it clear he doesn't want to go down the same road as the couple featured on MTV's Newlyweds and Meet the Barkers.

"Missy is just a girl from Pennsylvania who has no desire to be an actor," he told The Daily News.

The 27-year-old professional skateboarder, Jackass prankster and Viva La Bam star wed the 26-year-old Rothstein in downtown Philadelphia in front of approximately 350 friends and family members -- as well as an MTV crew, which filmed the ceremony and reception for Bam's Unholy Union.  The wedding will be shown in the Unholy Union finale in early April.

People reported the ceremony included a performance by Iggy Pop and an appearance by famed skateboarder Tony Hawk, in addition to numerous other familiar faces MTV viewers have grown accustom to over the years due to Jackass and Viva La Bam

According to a recent story in The New York Times, Margera and Rothstein were engaged last January while shopping at the Cartier store in the King of Prussia Mall.  Rothstein tried on an engagement ring, and when it happened to fit perfectly, Margera proposed on the spot.

"I was like, 'Now's the time,'" Margera told The Times. "We just sat there and drank three bottles of champagne. Then we forgot to get gas on the way home, and we straight up ran out of gas on Route 202."

Margera had been previously engaged to Jenn Rivell, a divorced single mother that he appeared to be living with during various episodes of Viva La Bam. However the relationship ended in 2005 when Rivell claimed on a radio show that Margera slept with Newlyweds star Jessica Simpson, Yahoo! News reported. He later denied the claim and he and Simpson have since made peace following last year's MTV Video Music Awards.

However Rivell wasn't completely out of Margera's life, because in October 2006, he filed for "protection from abuse" from Rivell after she allegedly broke into his house, The Daily Local News of West Chester, PA reported at the time.

"It was about 3:30 in the morning. I have a 10-foot fence with a gate card. She climbed over the fence and broke through the back door," he said during a November 3, 2006 assault hearing in Chester County Common Pleas Court.  "I'm really scared. I don't know what she'll do next."  He further alleged that Rivell "had exhibited irrational and aggressive behavior towards him on several previous occasions including destroying several computers and vandalizing his house immediately after their initial breakup."

Margera's story with Rothstein is much more story-book and much less tabloid, as the two have known each other since sixth grade.  After being out of touch while both were in other relationships, they got back together two years ago.  "I love his spontaneity, even though it drives me crazy sometimes," Rothstein told People. "I'd be bored if he was normal like everyone else."

While spontaneity works for Rothstein, it apparently didn't do too much for the wife of another Jackass star.
