Brian Manning and Shelly Dass

by Gail Alexander

Minister in the Ministry of Finance Brian Manning is expected to tie the knot with former television personality Shelly Dass on Saturday, government sources have said.

The venue will be Stollmeyers Castle, Queen’s Park West.

It will be the first marriage for Manning and the second for Dass. She was formerly married to former news reporter/producer Robert Clarke in 2008 and they had one child.

The upcoming wedding has been the talk of San Fernando PNM circles in recent weeks.

A number of PNM officials are expected to attend the wedding of the PNM backbencher and the former TV personality.

Both had once worked at Guardian Media at different periods in recent years.

Manning was contacted via email but has not responded on the matter.
