Tampa Baes: Olivia Mullins and Amanda Balling’s secret wedding revealed

Tampa Baes stars Olivia Mullins and Amanda Balling get MARRIED in matching crop tops before twirling on stripper poles at the reception: ‘I’ve found my best friend for life!’

Two of the stars from Amazon Prime Video’s lesbian reality series Tampa Baes have tied the knot.

Olivia Mullins and Amanda Balling, who met during the first season of the show, announced this week they secretly wed last year in an intimate ceremony.

The couple got married on July 5, 2021, but waited until the end of Pride month in the U.S. to share the news publicly.

‘I have wanted to share this news with everyone for almost a year now,’ Olivia wrote on Instagram. 

‘So what better time to share with everyone than the last day of Pride month!’

She then posted a video of the wedding and wild reception, which featured blushing bride Amanda twerking against a wall before twirling on a stripper pole.

The pair dressed identically for their nuptials in white trousers and sneakers with a matching crop top and blazer.

For the reception, they ditched the pants and blazers for skimpy shorts.

‘Amanda, I love you more and more every day,’ Olivia gushed on Instagram.

‘I found my best friend and someone to laugh with for the rest of my life.

‘From traveling together, going on random dates, dancing in our living room, to even lying in our kiddie pool in our front yard… every day with you is another best day of my life. 

‘You’re my world plus more. I wake up every morning and look over at you and can’t believe how lucky I am. July 5th 2021 until forever baby!’

Olivia and Amanda’s wedding was teased during the season one finale of Tampa Baes, but the identity of the brides was kept a secret.

It’s unclear if the Amazon Prime series will be picked up for a second season or not. 

The lesbian-themed reality show became a hit on social media when it premiered on the streaming platform last November.

The Florida-based show follows a diverse group of hard-partying lesbians in their twenties and thirties as they navigate friendships and the ups and downs of their niche social circle.

The drama largely centres around two prominent power couples who are both at odds with each other during the season.

There’s Brianna and Hayley, who are the queen bees of Tampa’s party scene, and Marissa and Summer, who were edited to look more down-to-earth.

The feud between the two couples reaches boiling point with drinks being thrown at a strip club, and it eventually divides the friendship group into two warring factions.

Despite the catfights, the show offers plenty of serious and heart-warming moments too.

Multiple coming-out stories are featured throughout the season, and the impact of religion on homosexuality also becomes a hot topic.

Several cast members also deal with anxiety and mental health issues, while one ends up going to jail for a DUI.
