Lily Tomlin Officiates Kathy Griffin’s New Year’s Eve Wedding

Kathy Griffin can look back at 2019 with a smile.

And a ring. A wedding ring.

On top of releasing her documentary, A Hell of a Story, which chronicled her experiences after sharing her infamous Trump decapitation photo in 2017, she also scored with her latest comedy show, Laugh Your Head Off.

And in the last seconds of the year married her longtime boo, Randy Bick, in a New Year’s Eve ceremony officiated by none other than Lily Tomlin.

Girl, you ain’t no D-List if Lily Tomlin is presiding over your nuptials.

“What was supposed to be a shallow, ‘toot it and boot it’ one-night stand has grown and flourished into something far more meaningful,” says Tomlin at the beginning of the ceremony. “They stayed together. Then they couldn’t stay away from one another.”

And they say romance is dead…

Griffin shared in a follow-up tweet that her attire for the wedding was the dress she wore on her first date with Bick.

“This was our first formal date in September 2011!” she wrote. “We are in the back of a limo provided by the one only @GloriaEstefan because her team arranged for me to surprise her as a back up ‘dancer’ when she performed at the Alma awards!”

“I asked Randy to pick out whichever one of my long dresses was his favorite for any reason. He picked out this dress and showed me this photo. Romance is hotttt again.”

Royal Wedding Invitations Get Complicated For Harry, Barack & Donald

Problem: what to do when you want to invite your new bestie to your wedding and leave a jerk out of the whole event?

Doesn’t sound complicated, does it?

But if you happen to be Prince Harry and it’s the Obamas you want to invite to your royal wedding and politics between Donald Trump and the UK are a testy topic…?

Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle find themselves in a bind wanting to invite the Obamas to their big day on May 19, but Trump could throw a temper tantrum if snubbed.

From The Sun:

Britain’s relations with Trump’s White House have sunk to their lowest ebb since his election last year.

The property billionaire does not hide his loathing of Mr. Obama and is expected to be enraged if his predecessor gets the coveted call-up when he won’t.

The young Royal couple’s dislike of the new president is well known.

Meghan made disparaging comments about him on social media during his election campaign last year.

There are deep fears among senior Foreign Office and No10 officials that another perceived national snub will make it impossible for Theresa May to meaningfully engage with Trump.

A senior government source said: “Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness.

“Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a Royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen.”

My Handsome, Amazing God Son Is Getting Married Today!

My god-son Joshua Bell and his bride to be Jordanne

I’m in Florida today attending the wedding (!!!!) of my god-son, Joshua Bell, to his longtime girlfriend/fiancee/wife-to-be Jordanne.

Not to get sentimental (but that’s what god-father’s do, right?) but I was there when Josh was born; he came to see me in my shows throughout my career; I took him to his first Broadway shows; he’s talented too – I flew in to Texas see HIM act in lead roles.

Shortly after my little adventure with cancer, Josh conquered his own cancer journey. He not only kicked cancer’s ass, but did it with courage and humor; more so, he shared that chapter with the world on Facebook so he could inspire others who might be on that same road some day.

I really, really love Josh. He knows that. And he’s never slow to say “I love you” to everyone in his world. That alone is the stuff pride is made of.

I’m so proud to be “Uncle Randy,” and thrilled to be here to wish Josh and Jordanne every happiness and in the world.  They are both beautiful people inside and out.

Expect lots of calls for “more wine” from Uncle Randy tonight at the reception.

Wedding rehearsal done – on to the real thing now 🙂

Josh and I from sometime over the years. I’m the short one 🙂

Class Act At Wedding Reception

Cute guys at wedding reception

A straight guy named Chad unexpectedly gets approached by a gay man at a wedding via LGBTQ Nation:

“I was at my cousins wedding reception and had just sat down from dancing. It was nearing the end of the night at this time so I was pretty secluded from everyone.

“A man walked up to me who I hadn’t seen before and nervously said “what’s your name?” I replied, “Chad, what’s yours?” He said “Shane, I just wanted to let you know that I have noticed you all night. I wanted to leave this with you before I left.” He handed me a piece of paper and quickly walked out. It was his number.

“Without knowing if I was straight or not he had built up the guts to put himself out there. I thought it was extremely brave and I know it’s something I wouldn’t be able to do.

“I’m sharing this to remind everyone to live their lives without regrets. Almost all of my regrets come from the things I didn’t do, not the things I did. I will be living my life more like this man and I suggest you all do as well. Good night.”

Chad reached out via text and here’s his calm, classy response:

Wedding toast from BFF to Bride – “Better work, bitch”

So, apparently, this is how you deliver a toast at a wedding reception these days.  I had no idea.

Best friend Bradley Bredeweg (creator of ABC Family’s THE FOSTERS) decided to surprise his best friend Stephanie Huntington with a performance on her wedding day she will always remember. The two of them have been secretly obsessed with Britney Spears their entire friendship, so Britney had to be a part of the ceremony.

According to the clip description, the last time Bradley performed or danced was when he was a teenager.

Hunkiest wedding party ever?

Hunky guest at Artie’s wedding party

Artie Baxter, an actor best known for playing Threesome Guy on The O.C. and John Stevens in The Rock’s Gridiron Gang, recently married his girlfriend in Hawaii.

And it appears that Baxter has really muscular, scruffy, tan friends. Check out a few members of Baxter’s wedding party. Like, where was my invite?

See?  A wedding took place –

Ace Young & Diana DeGarmo, of American Idol fame, marry in LA

Last year Michael introduced me to Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo, the first couple of American Idol.

Ace famously proposed to Diana on the season finale of American Idol last year, and yesterday we were lucky to be invited to attend their gorgeous wedding in Los Angeles.

In front of 250 guests, including fellow Idol alums Elliot Yamin, Michael Johns and Kevin Covais, and Idol coach (and friend for years) Michael Orland. Diana’s brother David returned from Afghanistan to walk her down the aisle making the ceremony that much more emotional.

People are what make a wedding the celebration that it is, and the people in attendance were some of the most fun I’ve met in a long time. Not only did we celebrate with Ace and Diana, but met up with my friend Tracy Powell (who I’ve worked with in the theater) and her fab “plus one” Dee Hoty of Broadway fabulousness. AND I spent much of the night with the Montoyas – Lori and Ron and fab sis Lisa Krause – of “Sin City Rules” and Rain Cosmetics fame.

Gorgeous people, gorgeous wedding, gorgeous night.

Happiness all around.

Isaac’s live Lip-Dub Marriage Proposal

This is really sweet. Starts out a bit silly, and then gets sillier and sillier, which is fabulous.  I think it’s great!

Bruno Mars saw the video and tweeted this:

“Congrats to Isaac Lamb and the future Mrs. I don’t think I could’ve made a better music video for this song. Thank you.”
