Laurie Money Career
Money told Classic Rock Revisited in 2018 that when he met his wife, she was the reigning Miss One for the Sun, a beauty contest out of Nashville, Tennesee.
He went on to compare his wife to his mother saying, My wife was born a day apart from my mother. I hate to say it, but it’s like I married my mother [laughter]. When I was living with my mother I did everything in my power to get 3000 miles away from her, so I moved to California. I can’t do that with my wife.
Since April 2018, the Money family had been appearing in a reality show, named Real Money. Laurie is listed as one of the producers of the show, along with her husband. The show aired on AXS TV.
One memorable episode of the show saw Money surprise his wife by recording a new song about her. When unveiling his gift, Money said, It’s good. It’s like ‘Honkytonk Woman. To which Laurie hit back, Isn’t that about a hooker
Eddie Money’s wife (Laurie Money)
Money told People Magazine in 1996 that it was meeting his future wife, Laurie, in 1985, that inspired him to become sober.
Laurie had been working as a model at the time the pair met. Laurie told the magazine, “I really didn’t know who he was. I used to get him mixed up with John Mellencamp.
He was really interested in having children, but he had to stop doing what he was doing. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have stayed.” The pair married in 1989.
Eddie Money would regularly pay tribute to his wife on his Twitter page. On their 30th wedding anniversary in June 2017, Money posted a photo of the couple saying, “Happy 30th anniversary to my rock. Thank you for giving me the best years of my life! Love you, Laurie.” On her birthday earlier that year, in May 2017, Money posted this clip:
That girl was shakin'!
Happy birthday to my beautiful wife Laurie
Love you forever
