Star Jones Nuptials: Fairytale Wedding or Diva Gone Wild?
In case you've been living on another planet for the past several months, you may not have heard that Star Jones was getting married. For the rest of us here on planet earth we couldn't escape this joyous news unless we swore off pop culture icons like Entertainment Tonight and People magazine.
Star Jones, current co-host of TV's chat fest The View with Barbara Walters, recently married Wall Street banker Al Reynolds in an elaborate, pull-out-all-the-stops wedding extravaganza fit for a queen - or maybe a successful diva.
That's right. Star Jones is a world-class diva. Okay, anyone familiar with Star knows her penchant for pampering herself with the finer things in life. So, it shouldn't be any big surprise that she went all out to have the wedding she'd been dreaming about since she was eight years old.
Star's fairytale wedding included such niceties as a wedding gown with a 27-foot veil topped with a crystal tiara, a 60-member Broadway choir, more attendants than Princess Di had at her wedding, and a custom made 7-carat princess cut diamond wedding ring.
Of course, as soon as the juicy wedding details surfaced in the media, the Star Jones haters came out of the woodworks - - often expressing their mean-spirited views of Star, Al, and their special day with vicious glee.
All right. Maybe Star went just a teeny weenie bit over the top. But so what? In the end, it's just one couple's happy wedding day. Theirs just happened to have a lot more bling bling than most folks.
Admit it. Most of us would have loved to have sneaked a peak into the star-studded event, if only to gawk at celebrity guests like: Angela Bassett, Kim Cattral, Chris Rock, Hillary Clinton, Vivica A. Fox, Barbara Walters, Lisa Ling, Kelly Ripa, Al Roker, Blair Underwood, and Donald Trump.
Whew! Now that's a lot of star powered bling right there.
When it comes right down to it, one person's overblown extravaganza is another person's Cinderella fairytale come true. It's a matter of personal style and taste. I say, do whatever makes you happy. That's all that counts in the end.
