Rainbeau Mars Defends Cleanse Request for Wedding Guests

June 17, 2013 8:48 am

Bride-to-be Rainbeau Mars made headlines last week after it was revealed that she’s asking her guests to do a three-week cleanse before her wedding.

But she insists her request was taken the wrong way and she called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to set the record straight.

“People thought I may have demanded [the cleanse], which is not the truth,” says Rainbeau, who adds that she had a dream about Ryan recently. “Our intentions were purely charitable.”

The health and fitness guide adds that she’s been doing the plant-based cleanse for five years at this time of the year, and this year it just so happened to take place before her wedding.

In fact, Rainbeau says that she views the cleanse as a “gift” to her friends and family.

And after hearing the ingredients in her cleanses and vegan cuisine, we can totally understand what she means because they sound as delicious as they are healthy.
