Kal Penn Reacts To Cardi B’s Offer to Be His Wedding Officiant


Harold & Kumar and House M.D. star Kal Penn is set to marry his partner of 11 years, Josh.

“I am engaged to a man and our families will be there for the wedding,” he told People. “The big disagreement now is whether it’s a huge wedding or a tiny wedding. I want the big ass Indian wedding. Josh, hates attention, [has said], ‘Or we could just do quick 20-minute thing with our families and that’s it.’ So we have to meet halfway in the middle.”

Penn has never spoken about his love life to the press before but he wrote their relationship in his upcoming memoir, You Can’t Be Serious, which is set for release on Nov. 2.

Following the news of his engagement, Penn tweeted that he spotted Cardi B on a recent flight the pair were on at the same.

“Cardi B was on my flight to LA,” he wrote. “I fell asleep and had a dream that she officiated our wedding on the plane and the three of us walked out of LAX holding hands.”

Well Cardi is down!  She replied, “First, why didn’t you say hi! Second, I’m licensed to do that sooo……. let me know.” 

“You’re the best,” Penn wrote back. “Was gonna say hi but didn’t want to be disrespectful (your do not disturb light was on). But holy s–t let’s do it! We’re down if you’re down!”

Cardi is actually licensed to marry couples. In an episode of her Facebook series, Cardi Tries, she officiated a wedding for a same-sex couple on National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11).
