Wedding Bells!


YAY!!!! We have TWO announcements. First, our beautiful, NY diva, Melissa Walker

Melissa Walker

is getting married a week from today! Things I know: she's wearing a bird's nest veil, and her mother is walking her down the aisle, and she is NOT chatting with us for rgz LIVE! during her honeymoon. Ha! Do you hear that Melissa? Right, Cecil?

I can't wait to see wedding photos! I wish we could all be there. *sigh*

Second, our gorgeous postergirl Jackie Parker

is engaged! Rumor has it the wedding will be next summer in the Seattle area. Things I know: she is very happy, and we are happy for her!

The wedding bells are ringing, rgz. Throw a little rice, or birdseed!
