... And now she's married to him! As with every other Today-Throws-A-Wedding couple of the past few years, we followed their wedding-planning frenzy each week, voted on the dress, the cake, the location, the honeymoon... and finally, watched with tears in our eyes as they exchanged their vows today. (Does anybody know if they got married at the same place in MD where Wedding Crashers was filmed?)
We sighed with relief that Trisha Yearwood's first song was not the song that some days, seemed to be eternally stuck in our head: "she's in love with the boy". At the IHAC household, we're not big country music fans but even we can appreciate the beauty of "How Do I Live" at a wedding.
Things we know about Trisha Yearwood:
1) Married to Garth Brooks, or is it Chris Gaines? (We think Gaines was hotter)
slightly hot: definitely not:
2) There used to be a whole lot less of Trisha Yearwood -- NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THERE BEING SO MUCH MORE OF HER NOW, but given how used we are to only seeing stick-figures on TV, you have to admit that seeing someone who isn't a size -2 (and who used to be considerably thinner) will make you do a double-take. Perhaps we should praise her for challenging society's notions of what a woman should like like (a la the Dove "Real Curves" campaign) but we're not so sure about that either.
*If the size increase is a result of some kind of medical condition, we apologize in advance for being so insensitive.
3) She has a very beautiful voice (clearly I'm trying to make-up with all the folks who might get all riled up by point #2)
Speaking of skinny people, we believe we caught Maria Menounos making her premier appearance today with a preview of this weekend's Emmys. Her title was "West Coast Correspondent" which sounds like she'll be in charge of covering all the "news" from Hollywood.
Where we've been: yes, we know AC has been out of control lately...did anybody see her riding a bike around the plaza yesterday? Could somebody PLEASE chain her to the news desk? It seems everytime they let her out of her cage she goes a little crazy.
With all of the KATRINA domination of the news, we thought it might be a bit crass to poke fun at AC. She did do some ~okay~ reporting from New Orleans (although the PETA folks are pissed off that she let a dog drown instead of picking him up on her boat), but barring another catastrophe of weather and FEMA, we'll try to post more frequently...
