Mark Burnett, Roma Downey Marry in Malibu
By Cynthia Wang
Reality TV producer Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice) and former Touched By An Angel star Roma Downey were wed in a private ceremony at their home in Malibu Saturday afternoon, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
"It was wonderful to have shared our big day with our family – Roma, myself, our children and our parents," Burnett, who's also producing this summer's On the Lot on FOX and Pirate Master on CBS, tells PEOPLE. "It was so meaningful and so intimate."
On a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Burnett, 46, and Downey, 47, said their "I dos" in a ceremony officiated by Downey's Angel costar, Della Reese, 75, who is an ordained minister.
Chances are this was actually just a trip to the beach that reality TV execs had edited to look like a wedding. Those people are VERY clever at making things more dramatic. So what about the guy objecting to this union (rather than forever holding his peace)? He was just telling Burnett that he left the lights of his Aston Martin on. And the guy knocking down the cake? Just a kid constructing a sand castle in rewind. Burnett seems like a very savvy fellow. It’s a wonder that he’s getting involved with another Hollywood-type. These guys seem to have minimal relationship longevity (with the exception of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, but they’re not even married).
