Lucy Ewing of 'Dallas' marries Houston's Johnny Lee

STATELINE, Nev. -- Actress Charlene Tilton of the 'Dallas' television series and country singer Johnny Lee were married Sunday afternoon in a double-ring Valentine's Day ceremony along the Lake Tahoe shore.

Miss Tilton, 22, who reportedly makes $30,000-a-week for her portrayal of Lucy Ewing on the 'Dallas' series, wore a white gown.


Her maid of honor was a close friend who was not identified.

Lee, 36, wore a black velvet coat, black shirt, pink tie and a custom black felt hat made by Indian Charley One Horse. Best man was singer Mickey Gilley.

It was the first marriage for each.

The brief civil ceremony was held at the lake-front home of entertainer Tony Orlando. It was not disclosed who officiated.

Among the 43 people in attendance were Orlando, country singer Lacy J. Dalton and 'Dallas' producer Leonard Katzman. No other members of the 'Dallas' cast were present.

Music was supplied by Rocky Stone, a guitar player with Gilley's Urban Cowboy Band.

The petite Miss Tilton, a former Hollywood High School cheerleader, made her professional acting debut in Walt Disney's 'Freaky Friday.'

The couple, who will live in the bride's Coldwater Canyon home in Los Angeles, plan to honeymoon next month in Israel.


Lee, who became a nationally-known country personality with his hit song 'Lookin' For Love,' has a home in Pasadena, Texas, a suburb of Houston.
