Lauren Bush Wedding Drama?

Former President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush will be noticeably absent from the wedding of their granddaughter, Lauren Bush, due to health issues -- or is other family drama weighing in on their decision?

Lauren Bush and David Lauren

Model and philanthropist Lauren Bush will wed designer Ralph Lauren's son, David Lauren, this Sunday at Ralph's Colorado Ranch in front of friends, family – but not her grandparents, former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush.

ABC News is reporting that the former president is 87 and Barbara is 86 and that the high altitude would be "a threat to their health."

But many say that is not the only reason they are skipping the wedding. Lauren's mother, Sharon Bush, had a messy divorce with George W.'s brother, Neil Bush. Sharon accused Neil of having extramarital affairs with female escorts in Thailand and Hong Kong, and as a result contracted herpes.

So, will Neil's brother, George W.,  be attending? A spokesman for the former president declined to comment -- so we will have to wait and see on that one.

It sounds like Lauren and David have an action-packed weekend in store for wedding guests, including a softball game on Saturday, as well as teepees and a saloon on the 17,000-acre ranch. The day after the wedding, a rodeo is planned in Telluride, Colorado.

With Lauren Bush marrying David Lauren – does this mean she will be called Lauren Lauren?

"I think it will be Lauren Bush-Lauren," she told Harper's Bazaar." That's not final, but I think it's nice to have the same name as your husband. I am sort of old-fashioned in that way."

I think that saying that a grandparent would skip their grandchilds wedding because of a family issue is a lie. Listen I know first hand that the love of a grandparent is so strong that it would not keep them away. However I can believe the health issue.

Interestingly enough that George Bush was able to parachute from an altitude of 10,500+ ft in 2009 for his 85th birthday, indicating that he hoped to do so again on his 90th, but can't make his granddaughter's wedding on a ranch located at a 7,400 ft altitude. Sounds like an in-family political thing.

It's not drama, you are trying to make it drama.
