Lisa Edelstein: ‘House’ Star Marries Artist

By: Kimberly Ripley - May 26, 2014

Lisa Edelstein of House fame was married on Sunday, meaning Kim Kardashian wasn’t the only famous L.A. bride getting hitched this weekend. Edelstein married her longtime boyfriend, artist Robert Russell in Los Angeles, a day after Kim Kardashian tied the knot with Kanye West in Florence, Italy. The two exchanged their vows under a beautiful chuppah (Edelstein is Jewish) and exchanged gold wedding bands designed by renown jeweler Neil Lane.

“They’re very happy, very loving,” a source who knows the couple told PEOPLE magazine.

Lisa, of course, is best known for her role alongside actor Hugh Laurie in the long-running hit TV series House. She played the role of Dr. Cuddy, who was sometimes Greg House’s nemesis and at one point was even his lover. After she opted out of the final season of House she starred in a 3-episode stint on The Good Wife in the role of attorney Celeste Serrano. She also appeared on both Scandal and Castle in guest roles.

Lisa Edelstein is set to star in the first scripted series Bravo has ever aired. Called Girlfriends Guide to Divorce, Edelstein will play the lead role of Abby McCarthy. The hour-long comedy-drama is based loosely on a series of books written by Vicki Iovine. The series won’t air, however, until 2015.

Twitter fans were eager to share their congratulations and best wishes with the actress.

Perhaps between now and when active promotion begins for her new TV series Lisa Edelstein and Robert Russell will become firmly ensconced in their married lives. So often people with careers like actresses and artists are taken in opposite directions for long periods of time. It will be interesting to see if this newly married couple will allow such lengthy gaps in their marriage.

Congratulations are certainly in order for Lisa Edelstein and Robert Russell. May they long enjoy a happy and creative life together. Do you think their marriage will outlast that of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? (It probably doesn’t take rocket science to answer that question….)

    I always thought that Lisa aka Cuddy was what made House so very interesting, and Chase was the cutie that made a working romance seem so easy and doable. As I’ve been watching the very first season on DVD I remember just how much I enjoyed the well acted and entertaining shows that all the actors created. Best wishes on your nuptials and I do believe an artist would be a very cool spouse.

    Common television actresses are so invisible to a vast majority of fans. (like me)
