August 15, 2011
40% of "The View's" co-hosts got married last Saturday. People magazine reports SHERRI SHEPHERD tied the knot with LAMAR SALLY at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago. ELISABETH HASSELBECK, NIECY NASH and NICOLE BROWN from "Community" were all on bridesmaid duty while the bride's six-year-old son, JEFFREY, walked mom down the aisle.
Meanwhile, JOY BEHAR finally made it official with her longtime love, STEVE JANOWITZ. A rep for the show tells People they did the deed during a private ceremony in New York City and all the details will be revealed when the chat fest returns on September 6th. The couple dated for a whopping 29 years and originally got engaged back in '09.
Phone starter: Hey bridezillas --did a buddy plan her wedding on your big day? How did you work around it? Did it hurt --or maim-- your friendship? (Lee)
Married, part II:
BROOKE BURKE and former "Baywatch" star DAVID CHARVET said their "I Do's" during a moonlit ceremony in the Caribbean. Life & Style magazine reports the man-and-wife had a very intimate affair off the coast of St. Bart's with their four children in attendance. David and Brooke have two children together; Brooke already had two daughters from a previous relationship. The couple started dating in 2005 and he popped the question one year later. Before Brooke, David dated Israeli model BAR REFAELI and actress TORI SPELLING. (Lee)
Married, Part III:
"American Pie" actress TARA REID. Zap2It.com reports Tara, who was in Greece for a vacation, tweeted, "I just got engaged!" on Saturday, followed an hour later by the tweet, "Greece married!" Then, six hours later, she added, "Thank you for all of your support! I love you guys. Love in Greece... I am now a wife."
No official word about the identity of her husband, although MSNBC and other gossip mongers are assuming it's Danish businessman MICHAEL LILLELUND, who she was dating earlier this year.
Congrats to "Lizzie McGuire" actress HILARY DUFF, who's going to be a mother for the first time. Hilary announced the happy event on her blog yesterday, which was the first anniversary of her wedding to NHL star MIKE COMRIE.
Outta sick bay:
aging 94-year-old actress ZSA ZSA GABOR was released from the hospital last Wednesday after nearly a month of hospitalization. She was home in time for her 25th wedding anniversary, which was yesterday. Zsa Zsa had been in the hospital since she broke her hip on July 17. Her ninth husband, Prince FREDERIC von ANHALT, says she's in such good spirits that she'd "started flirting with the guys who took her home."
JACK WAGNER and HEATHER LOCKLEAR are getting hitched. The beautiful blonde's rep confirmed to Us Weekly the two got engaged after four years of togetherness. Jack's been busy working on "The Bold and the Beautiful" these days, while Heather is filming "The Assistants." The two teamed up on "Melrose Place" back in the 90's and this will be the bride's third shot at marriage after divorcing both TOMMY LEE and RICHIE SAMBORA. (Lee)
DAVID COPPERFIELD's been a busy guy! The NY Post's Page Six gossip column reports the professional magician has a sixteen-month-old daughter with model CHLOE GOSSELIN. Dad's rep confirmed the good news --the baby girl's name is SKY and the family resides in the Bahamas on his 11 private islands. (Lee)
TINA FEY will be tripping over Barbie dolls for years to come --the "30 Rock" actress just gave birth to another baby girl. Us Weekly reports Tina and hubby JEFF RICHMOND hit up the maternity ward last Wednesday to welcome little PENELOPE ATHENA. The princess will surely get lots of guidance from her five-year-old big sister, ALICE. (Lee)
