The Word: A weekend of renewing wedding vows, celebrity style

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renew their vows (so do LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian!).

Are you a celebrity couple who needs a good reason to send out a press release? But you don't feel like 1. Announcing a pregnancy or 2. Getting a divorce? Then just renew your wedding vows! It's a surefire way to get some attention thrown your way.

First up this weekend? Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their vows Friday at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Spokeswoman Cindi Berger said the couple celebrated with an "intimate ceremony after a romantic dinner at the beautiful Jules Verne restaurant." I love how "intimate" these days refers to having a hoard of photographers on the scene -- as well as a publicist.

Not to be outdone, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian renewed their vows on a romantic trip to Calabasas, Calif., on Friday. "We renewed our vows today....it's incredible to thank each other for the past year as husband and wife," Rimes tweeted. "Here's to another great year!"

You know, it's probably bad to be so cynical. After all, with the way Hollywood marriages last, recognizing any amount of time together without getting divorced should be celebrated.
