If you thought that Bridezillas we’re bats%&t crazy, just wait until you hear how the average engaged woman feels about doin’ it before she says “I do!” According to the New York Post, a whopping 53% of brides-to-be won’t have sex with their future spouse for at least a month before their wedding. Forty-two-percent said they have also put a stop to any hanky-panky. Seriously?! Ladies, it’s not like you’re going to get your hymen to grow back in time to wear the white dress. You’ve already tried his family jewels on for size. Why should you deny yourself passion during these highly romantic/stressful times? Give it up, turn it loose! No wonder brides are always so up tight about floral arrangements and grooms go nuts at their bachelor parties! Come to think of it, I guess now I know what the “something blue” refers to. [NY Post]

So have you noticed that I haven’t written this column in awhile? That’s because it’s going monthly. Planning a wedding is not that action-packed, to be honest! Especially when you haven’t actually started planning it yet — well, to be fair, we are waiting to hear back on a particular location. If that gets secured, I will actually start working on the other details.
But just because my reply to the nearly daily question, “How’s the wedding planning coming along?” is “What wedding planning?”, doesn’t mean I still don’t have plenty to say about being engaged.

Because fiances are still annoying. Keep reading »
Back in 1991, Julia Roberts jilted her fiance Kiefer Sutherland days before their wedding and ran off to Europe with his (now ex) best friend Jason Patric. Waaaay harsh, but Kiefer did cheat on her with a stripper. Despite the bad blood, they’ve managed to forgive each other and stay friends. Now, almost 20 years later, for the first time since they co-starred in Flatliners, the movie set they met on, it’s rumored they’ll work together again. Julia is reportedly stepping into the small screen and making a cameo on Kiefer’s successful show, 24, next season. Cool, but why would an Academy Award winning movie star take a bit part on a TV show? Sounds like more than gun sparks are going to fly on the secret agent show! [Remote Access] Keep reading »
Engaged people can be obnoxious. That’s what I thought before I was engaged, and it’s what I think now that I am. For starters, engagements are by definition a lil’ flashy. Literally speaking, there’s the ring. I was always noticing women wearing big rocks, little rocks, enviable rocks, ugly rocks (Pear shaped diamonds?! Patooey!), when I would ride the subway. Sometimes I would find the bragginess of a big ol’ diamond annoying and contemptible. So now I turn my ring around on the way to work so I just look like a married lady with a wedding band.
