Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo to air their wedding on TLC special NOT called 'Newlyweds'

If you were sad that the split of Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris meant one less televised celebrity wedding, breathe easy, PopWatchers, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have come to your rescue (well, at least until Kim Kardashian inevitably airs hers).

TLC confirmed to EW that Lachey and Minnillo will appear in a special for their network, tentatively titled Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding, which will chronicle the couples’ journey down the aisle, featuring footage from their joint wedding shower, Minnillo’s dress shopping, and the actual ceremony itself.

While there is no confirmed date as to when the special will air or when Lachey (who is no stranger to getting hitched on TV) and Minnillo’s blessed event is actually occurring, we’re already counting down. Sure, it’s no Royal Wedding (I have yet to see any Nick and Vanessa commemorative plates), but, hey, it gives us an excuse to listen to the 98 Degrees song “I Do (Cherish You)” and The Soup an excuse to play this clip again and again and again.

Royal Wedding flower girl Grace Van Cutsem is not having it, you guys

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the amazing dress, the pomp and circumstance, the enormous circular cake. Sorry, but the Royal Wedding was all about seriously unimpressed flower girl Grace Van Cutsem, who upstaged the entire thing with a photo-ready pout. (Sorry, Posh, Grace’s was better.) Seriously, she’s already got her own tumblr! If looks could kill, there would have been scads of British goners today.

Reese Witherspoon's other gorgeous wedding gown


I have to admit: I was one of the many salivating for a photo (or a hundred) of Reese Witherspoon’s big day — and especially her big dress — all last week. (I mean, really, not even one stalkerazzi aerial shot?) So when People finally delivered the goods yesterday you can bet that productivity in the EW offices slowed down as we took a minute to dissect the details. Her pick, a Monique Lhuillier gown, was definitely a sweeter, more romantic (and pink!) look than we’re used to seeing from Reese on the red carpet. But while I ultimately came down on the side of loving it (bedazzled sash and all), it made me think about Reese’s other wedding looks — the ones she wore onscreen. There was her Legally Blonde 2 gown: simpler than you might have expected from Elle Woods — and also pink! But my favorite? The one she wore to march down the aisle as Melanie Carmichael (nee Smooter) in Sweet Home Alabama. With its wide-set straps and retro-chic birdcage veil, that wedding look was one for the ages. (You can see our picks for other fairytale wedding gowns here.)

What do you think, PopWatchers? Which is your favorite Reese gown?

Even The Weather Channel has Royal Wedding fever!


With Prince William set to marry Kate Middleton in a mere 32 days, it seems that Royal Wedding Fever is spreading faster than Legionnaire’s Disease on a cruise ship. While it’s no surprise that Mary Hart and the Entertainment Tonight team came down with the bug, who knew Al Roker was a royals junkie? It’s true, y’all! According to a truly mind-boggling press release that just popped into my inbox, the esteemed weatherman will be heading to London to host a special edition of The Weather Channel’s Wake Up With Al on Monday, April 25. TWC will also, and I quote, “look at the outdoor beauty and natural splendor of the Royal couple’s new home, the North Wales island of Anglesey.”

That’s not all, folks! NBCUniversal’s entire lineup — including NBC, MSNBC, E!, Bravo, and Telemundo — will be getting into the act. Some highlights, after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Entertainment Tonight's royal wedding promo: Fairy dust, hyperbole, and hats, hats, hats!

Just when I thought I was more excited for Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s April 29 nuptials than anybody in the continental U.S., Entertainment Tonight has released a jaw-dropping promo that proves they are truly delirious with royal wedding fever.

The extravaganza begins on a maudlin note, as the stately strains of Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed a Dream” underscore a heart-tugging narration: “Nearly 14 years ago, the world lost a princess — and a boy lost his mother.” (First of all, I’m pretty sure TWO BOYS lost their mother, but apparently that’s not important right now.) The music swells as the Over-Enunciating Announcer declares, “Now, the future King of England will take his mother’s ring” — cue shot of Diana wearing the dazzling ring — “and marry the WOMAN OF HIS DREAMS.” READ FULL STORY

Royal wedding to be celebrated with TLC 'Hoarding' special. Oh, and possibly filmed in 3-D.

Today’s winner comes from TLC, which announces a week-long royal-themed programming event that kicks off Sunday, April 24. Among the offerings, “Royal editions of some of TLC’s most popular series, including a special that focuses on both British and American hoarders and extreme collectors of royal memorabilia” and “a special round table discussion with Royal experts and a celebrity host, leading into the network’s live early morning coverage of the event Friday, April 29.” The network rationalizes its full-court press because this is a wedding, and it airs wedding shows. Though I doubt we’re getting a special edition of Say Yes to the Dress with Middleton.

From one awesome(ly bad) idea to another: READ FULL STORY

Things that annoy me about the commemorative William and Kate engagement coins

william-kate-coin_320.jpg I am all about the royal wedding. If I could set my DVR now for April 29, 2011, I would. But these Royal Engagement coins from the Royal Mint annoy me in many ways. Let’s count them.

1. I don’t know who that ugly chick on the coin is supposed to be, but it is in no way Kate Middleton. Did Camilla order the Royal Mint people to make Kate look homely because she’s jealous of the future queen? (And pissed that she needs to curtsy to Kate in certain situations?)

2. They gave William too much hair. Also, his adam’s apple looks weirdly bulgy.

3. For some reason this £5 coin (about $7.65) costs anywhere from $15 to $2,371. I’m no numismatic expert, but that seems excessive to me.

4. Not to go all Annie Barrett on you, but what is up with those ratty tendrils of hair under Kate’s chin?

5. That ugly girl who is supposed to be Kate is looking lovingly at Prince William, but he’s staring off into the distance, like he can’t be bothered. Yes, according to a statement from The Mint, Wills is pictured in profile to allude to his “Royal status,” but again, I suspect this slight to Kate is Camilla’s doing.

I could go on and on, but I should probably get some work done today. So I’ll turn it over to you, PopWatchers. What royal annoyances did I miss?

Chelsea Clinton's wedding: Sorry, no Oprah or Spielberg, but oh! That dress!

Though the weeks leading up to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding buzzed with speculation about the celebrity guest list — Oprah! Steven Spielberg! Barbra Streisand! — in the end, the true stars of Rhinebeck, N.Y. were none other than the bride and her famous folks. And no, I don’t think attendees Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen would be offended by that assessment. Yesterday, as crowds followed the actors, who are longtime friends of the Clintons, Danson remarked, “We must be the only celebrities in town. I’m sorry.” Funny!

Though I’m a bit baffled by all the frenzied interest in the former First Daughter’s nuptials—by the way, she married Marc Mezvinsky, pictured, far left—I get that it’s the closest our aristocracy-less country gets to a royal wedding. And even my cold, cynical heart felt a pang when I saw the picture of Bill Clinton walking his only child down the aisle. Awww…misty-eyed, I was! In that instant, he wasn’t the formerly most-powerful-man-in-the-world Clinton. He was just a proud (and mightily slimmed-down!) dad accompanying his daughter on her big day. Immediately following the ceremony, Bill and Hillary Clinton released this statement: “Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.”

So congrats to Chelsea. Those of us old enough to remember the Clinton years can marvel at her transformation into young womanhood. And the girly girls among us (and our gay b.f.f.’s) can coo over the gorgeous Vera Wang gown she wore. Stunning! Well done, lady! (Here’s another shot of it. The New York Times also has a slideshow.) Do you share my assessment of her wedding gown? Beautiful, right?

Jeff Probst officiated Jenna Fischer's wedding, and other awesome ideas

jeff-probstImage Credit: Probst: Lester Cohen/Wireimage.com; Brand X Photos/Getty ImagesOffice star Jenna Fischer got married two weeks ago, which, you know, hurray for her, but the cool part is that Jeff Probst officiated her wedding. Bah! That is awesome.

But it’s gotten me thinking: What celebrity would be the best officiant ever? It’s a tall order. They need to be eloquent and warm, with a little gravitas but also some humor. Boring ceremonies = the worst. My first choice is Neil Patrick Harris, because what can’t that guy do? I think he’d crush it. A close second, though, based on my BFF’s suggestion, is Wallace Shawn. Martin Sheen and Meryl Streep also seem like solid choices.

Maybe it’d be better to have someone with a little fictional experience, though. Loudon Wainwright did it in 40-Year-Old Virgin, Matt LeBlanc on Friends, Amy Poehler solemnized a penguin wedding on Parks and Recreation — they all seem like good options too. Your turn, PopWatchers: What celebrity do you want to officiate?

Let's just buy Star Jones this George IV rectangular tray in sterling silver with handles already

Star-Jones-platterImage Credit: Anthony G. Moore/PR PhotosA tipster wrote in with this breaking scoop: Star Jones and Al Reynolds are still registered at Tiffany & Co. for their 2004 wedding. The George IV rectangular tray in sterling silver with handles is one of only four items left to purchase. Back in September 2004 it was only $10,400, but today it’s $16,000!

It is probably worth a little more now that I’ve finished typing that!

We here at PopWatch Gumshoes, Inc. suspect that Star is still holding out for this wedding gift. If she leaves the registry up JUST ONE MORE DAY, someone will eventually hand her her dream of a silver platter, possibly atop another silver platter, which would look a lot more fabulous and intricate than the pictured one but would not cost $16,000. She probably keeps the registry open in a tab and refreshes it every morning. Well, I for one can’t stand to see Star Jones suffer like this and think we should all chip in. Just a few pennies! It’s the least we can do.
