Sue Sylvester (er, Jane Lynch) dances to 'Vogue' with stepdaughter at wedding. What pop culture character would you want to dance with?

glee-vogueI love perusing the New York Times weddings section — there’s nothing like reading about how two ridiculously successful people descended from either the Founding Fathers or oil barons with ten Ivy League degrees between them meet, fall in love, and combine their already huge trust funds. Today, however, I actually found one that didn’t make me gag – the announcement for Jane Lynch (a.k.a. Glee‘s Sue Sylvester) and her new wife, Dr. Lara Embry.

The happy couple tied the knot on Monday in Sunderland, Mass., with Jane walking down the aisle in a stunning, lacy white track suit (I wish!). The announcement goes into detail about how the pair met, but my favorite part came at the end, when Lara shared that her 8-year-old daughter, Haden, helped Jane practice the “Vogue” routine before she performed it on Glee. That was just the beginning — now the duo start impromptu singing and dancing sessions often, and, in fact, shared their best “Vogue” rendition at the wedding reception. All I can say is, what a lucky little girl. This sounds like such a fun family, and if Madonna’s not available, the second obvious person I’d want to teach me to “Vogue” is Sue Sylvester!

So, PopWatchers, what dance would you like to learn from America’s most hardcore cheer coach? The worm? Are there any other celebrities or characters you’d want to show you how to freestyle (Napoleon Dynamite, perhaps?) or disco (hello, John Travolta circa 1977!)?

Carrie Underwood makes a surprise visit to 'Ellen' and talks wedding planning

Fresh off her Entertainer of the Year win at Sunday’s ACM Awards, Carrie Underwood made a surprise visit yesterday to The Ellen DeGeneres show, where the American Idol alum gave away tickets to the show’s charity special, Idol Gives Back, and talked about her upcoming nuptials to Canadian hockey player, Mike Fisher.

What we learn from her visit is: Carrie isn’t a bridezilla, she wants a small wedding, and she thinks Ellen is doing a great job on Idol. And if you want to experience some jewelry envy, check out her massive yellow diamond engagement ring. Carrie simply says, “He did goood.” Good, indeed! Watch Carrie’s couch time with Ellen in the clip after the jump: READ FULL STORY

Larry King to divorce for the eighth time. Who should he marry next?

Larry-KingImage Credit: Patrick EcclesineAnd then there were eight. Ex-wives, that is. Yep, turns out Larry King is divorcing from Shawn Southwick King, the woman who happens to be the talk show host’s eighth wife. (King was previously married to Annette Kaye, Frada Miller, Alene Akins, Mickey Sutphin, Sharon Lepore, and Julie Alexander; a spokesperson for the talk show host told People, “His major concern is the welfare of his children, and beyond that he’s not going to comment about the divorce.”) But don’t feel bad for him — look how happy he is in this picture!

So, of course, this begs the question: Who will be lucky bride No. 9? I’m pretty sure Carrie Prejean is a no-go, but I’m secretly rooting for for the obvious choice: Liz Taylor, who has also been married — and divorced — eight times. Hey, she’s single, Larry! After all, he’s gonna need someone to nurse him back to health in case there’s an ecoli oopbrike.

Celebrity weddings: TMI or not enough?

weddingImage Credit: Andrea Bricco/Workbook Stock/Getty ImagesE! Online is reporting that The Office’s John Krasinski and Young Victoria‘s Emily Blunt will walk down the aisle “in about a month.” The source doesn’t know a lot of the major details — like the location — but it seems that when it comes to celebrity wedding news, every single detail is worthy of a headline.

Clearly, however, people are interested in the nitty-gritties. How else can you explain how much I know about Carrie Underwood’s upcoming nuptials? Ready for this? Okay: Underwood, who became engaged to hockey player Mike Fisher last December, will have cupcakes instead of wedding cake at the reception and her dog will serve as the ring bearer, but her dress is still in the beginning stages of design. Phew! Last year, I didn’t even know this much about one of my oldest friend’s weddings, and I was a bridesmaid.

I get sucked into Platinum Weddings and My Fair Wedding marathons more often than I care to admit. I can see why people are interested in the details, especially if they’re a fan or a bride-to-be. But we’re not talking about weddings of Diana and Charles proportions; a new heir to the throne won’t be coming out of any of these unions, no matter how much we love Jim Halpert. Is there really a reason why we can’t wait until after the wedding to find out that Carrie’s on Team Cupcake?

What do you think PopWatchers? Do you care about every single detail of a celeb wedding leading up to the big day, or is it information overload? Is there any celebrity wedding you were truly excited for?

Elizabeth Taylor denies engagement

Elizabeth Taylor has shot down engagement rumors via her Twitter account today.  “The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” Taylor tweeted. “Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.” Rumors spread last week that Taylor was engaged to her longtime manager, Jason Winters, which would have marked the ninth marriage for Taylor. That means the 78-year old icon is still available, fellas! Those interested in wooing should know that Taylor has a fondness for sequins and White Diamonds.

Diablo Cody is pregnant. Should she name the baby Homeskillet?

Diablo-CodyImage Credit: Chris Hatcher/PR PhotosWe have a feeling Diablo Cody will be craving plenty of SunnyD: A rep for the Academy Award-winning Juno scribe — and former EW columnist — has confirmed that Cody is pregnant with her first child with her husband, who is not Michael Cera, even if this picture suggests it. (She also tweeted the news: “Thanks for the congrats on my fetus!”) Who else is imagining the couple eating Tic-Tacs and strumming “Anyone Else But You” on a guitar while they wait for their little Homeskillet to arrive?

Honest to blog, we’re happy for Cody. So let’s dream up some Juno-esque names for the little one. MacGruff? Thundercat? Morgan Freeman?

Katy Perry and Russell Brand: Bring on the duets!

Now that the rumors have been confirmed that Katy Perry and her comic boyfriend Russell Brand are engaged, two thoughts come to mind:

1. For the woman who loves dressing up like dice and carousels, what will her wedding dress look like? Well, let’s hope it isn’t this one.

2. I never liked Russell Brand as MTV awards host, but what I did love was the hilarious ditty “Inside of You” that he sang in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Will the couple ever duet?

A purposely legitimate song with these two singing could be a tragic, cheesy mess. But a funny YouTube spoof song? As long as it’s not like this, I’ll take it.

While we wait, let’s reminisce about Brand’s musicality, shall we?

Does a duet between Perry and Brand seem inevitable? What song should they duet to for their first track?

EW Exclusive: A first look at the SpongeBob SquarePants wedding!

Admittedly, I don’t keep up with SpongeBob SquarePants the way I do with, say, Lost or Medium or Melrose Place. But this exclusive clip from Truth or Square, a one-hour special airing Nov. 6, 8:00 p.m. EDT, on Nickelodeon, has me wondering if maybe I should. I mean, seriously, SpongeBob getting married to Sandy? A primitive multicellular beastie betrothed to a squirrel? I can’t say I saw these nuptials coming!

Fortunately, a Nickelodeon publicist sent me a release putting the ceremony in context. Truth or Square — narrated by Ricky Gervais and featuring Rosario Dawson, Craig Ferguson, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, LeBron James, Pink, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Robin Williams — will piece together never-before-seen flashbacks of SpongeBob and his pals after they get trapped inside Krusty Krab’s freezer during the restaurant’s “eleventy seventh” birthday. And apparently, the SpongeBob-Sandy ceremony is one of the Very Special Moments being revisited for the first time. Press play below for a glimpse of a moony-eyed SpongeBob in love. You may never look at Bikini Bottom the same way again.

Khloe Kardashian-Lamar Odom Wedding inspires a nuptial poem

Khloe-Kardashian-Lamar-Odom_lWrap yourself tight in your Martha Stewart bedding
‘Cause this here’s a poem ’bout Kardashian’s wedding
The mention of that name fills me with such nameless dreading
But I’m adding to their press now: Call it aiding and abetting

The bride it was not Kim, for the uninitiated
But a sister named Khloe who keeps the paparazzi sated
They’ve both gotten so famous they’ve been downright Jon + Kate-d
To Brody and Bruce Jenner, these girls they are related

Another sister Kourtney walked the aisle with baby bump READ FULL STORY

Milla Jovovich marries 'Resident Evil' director Paul W.S. Anderson: Congrats!

Milla-Jovovich-married_lCongratulations are in order to actress Milla Jovovich and sci-fi auteur Paul W.S. Anderson, who, People.com informs me, got hitched last night in a small sunset ceremony at their Beverly Hills home. The couple met when Anderson was directing Jovovich in 2002’s Resident Evil, which researchers believe may be the first time that a successful real-life romance has resulted from a movie based on a video game about zombies.

In addition to those warm congratulations, I should also offer a brief apology-slash-cautionary tale: When I first read this headline, I thought for a second that it said Jovovich had married There Will Be Blood‘s Paul Thomas Anderson, and I was all, “How could he do Maya Rudolph like that?!” Needless to say, Paul W.S. Anderson and Paul Thomas Anderson are in fact two completely distinct people who happen to share an occupation and a near-identical name. They probably get that a lot. Sorry, dudes!

So, don’t make the same mistake I did. Know your Paul Andersons. And share your well-wishes for Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson in the comments below.
