A modern-day Romeo and Juliet are on their honey-moon trying to make good on their vows after barely surviving their North Shore wedding from hell, which ended in a bruising brawl and two busts — including the groom’s mother.
“They’re in love. They’re doing everything in their power to make it work,” busted mom Darlene DeIorio, 45, told the Herald last night though tears. “I’m going to be there for them no matter what. My heart is so broken. I’m sad for them.”
The Saturday night nuptials between Anthony DeIorio-Weiner and Nancy Guido at the Danversport Yacht Club ballroom — which featured more than 250 guests — erupted into mayhem after the groom’s two younger brothers were denied booze at the bar, according to a police report. This service slight somehow incensed DeIorio-Weiner, 25, who punched a wall and began tearing apart the coatroom after someone from the bride’s side of the family told him to calm down.
When the bride’s brother approached DeIorio-Weiner, the groom punched him and the pair were soon tussling on the floor, police say. Danvers cops showed up and found a surreal scene: Wedding guests yelling, screaming and rolling around on the ground in a pig pile. At one point, police said, the groom’s mother, Darlene, attacked the bride’s mom. The two were separated and Darlene was escorted outside — only to return to the scene of the marital mayhem. This time, police said, she threw a chair across the room and began punching another woman.
Darlene’s version of the story is a bit different. It was all about disrespect, she said. According to her, the whole kerfuffle began when the bride’s mother began yelling at Darlene’s 70-year-old mother and waving her finger in her face. Darlene insists she was only defending her mom and her family’s good name. How could that be assault? As the fighting escalated, Darlene claims she went to leave but was insulted by her ex-boyfriend’s galpal, who told her she was no lady. Police again intervened, and after Darlene put up some stiff resistance, she was led away in cuffs.
On the way to the station, police said, Darlene turned her wrath on them and said some pretty hurtful things about one of the officer’s mothers. “I could have done things differently or better,” said a repentant Darlene, who pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in court Monday. “There should have been many arrested. The incident was unfair. It’s an embarrassment to the bride and groom.” Meanwhile, her son Anthony and new daughter-in-law Nancy are off in the Dominican Republic, enjoying their honeymoon.
Or so Darlene hopes. “I apologize,” she said last night. “I pray to God that everything works out for the best and I pray that love prevails. I really do. It was supposed to be two families becoming one.”
Well holy crap. You’d think things like this only happen in that stupid Big Fat Gypsy Wedding shitshow that I’ve still never seen on TV, just in stories online. But not up here in the supposedly civilized Northeast. This whole thing is freaking hard as hell to follow. But it sounds to me like it was all the Delorio-Weiners or whatever the fuck they are called. First the groom’s brothers get shut off at the bar, probably because they are falling down drunk already so the groom goes ballistic, because of course he is completely shitfaced too. Then, the groom’s mother goes and attacks the bride’s mom, in her words just to “protect her families good name.” BAHAHAHAHAHAHA Honey, you’ve got absolutely no good name to protect! You are white trash plain and simple. Period. And you all can’t seem to handle your alcohol.
I’ve also been privy to some insider information that the news are not reporting on. Apparently the bride’s father is a police captain in Revere and her brother is a Chelsea police officer. I’m surprised they didn’t mention any of that in any of the stories. You would think, being cops, they would have been able to help control the situation better. At least they weren’t the ones involved in the fight. At first I thought maybe some of the people involved in the fight were cops, but that’s not the case. But definitely after re-reading this story a few times it’s pretty clear to me that the Delorio family is white trash from Revere who pretty much had no place attending an event at the somewhat classy Danversport yacht club.
Sometimes, I lose hope in humanity.
