We love a great wedding movie. The romance, the dress, the planning, the in-laws--some of the best wedding films add a heavy dose of comedy to the marriage preparations. Soon-to-be-wed Khloe Kardashian (she's marrying Lamar Odom of the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday) just wrote a blog post about her all time favorite wedding movies. She's still filming her reality show, and after only one month of dating about a week to plan a huge wedding bash with a celebrity guest list, we'd be willing to bet her own reality show will capture some fascinating and hilarious moments.
"Getting married or not, I always LOVE wedding movies!" says 25-year-old Kardashian. "There are so many genres - happy, sad, romantic or funny, I love them all! So without further ado, I give you my Top 10 Wedding Movies!!!"
1. "Father of the Bride"
2. "The Wedding Planner"
3. "My Best Friend's Wedding"
4. "Maid of Honor"
5. "Fools Rush In"
6. "Clueless" ("wedding at the end LOL," she writes)

Darren McCollester/Getty ImagesRenee Zellweger famously went on an eating binge to bulk up for the "Bridget Jones" movies, but for the third upcoming film she may be opting for a fat suit. It seems that the actress is concerned about how long it took her to shed the extra weight after the last film wrapped in 2004, and is worried about the effects of all the rapid weight gaining and losing she's done over the years (if you'll remember, she also dropped a ton for "Chicago").Read More »from Why Renee Zellweger won't be gaining weight for â€œBridget Jones 3â€
Actors always talk about the addition of fried foods, donuts and milkshakes to their diets when taking on the role of a heavier character. We'll admit that while packing on pounds for a paycheck does sound fun--not to mention delicious--to read about, we do not envy all the work it must take to get rid of the extra junk in the trunk, around the middle, under the arms, and everywhere else the flab likes to hang out. Now imagine having to do that three times! Sure, Zellweger has trainers and nutritionists to help her, but we can't imagine having

Dr. Sanjay Gupta getting treated for Swine Flu in AfghanistanMany of us rely on CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, for health advice on a regular basis. Well, despite all his medical knowledge, he contracted H1N1 (aka swine flu) on a recent trip to Afghanistan. He took a few days off from work and this morning he blogged about the ordeal for CNN.com.Read More »from Dr. Sanjay Gupta gets swine flu: Is there hope for the rest of us?
Gupta himself noted it's sort of ironic for a medical reporter to contract the illness. If a doctor who is aware of the symptoms and precautions one must take to avoid getting the flu, how can we normal folks steer clear? Does it tarnish a doctor's credibility for him to get a disease when he's been warning us about how to prevent getting it ourselves? Of course not. But we did mini-laugh at the headline, "I went to Afghanistan and all I got was H1N1," before feeling very sorry for the guy.
Gupta described his sudden symptoms as "high fevers, the lack of appetite, terrible sinus congestion, body aches, and yes - that hacking." Though those sound like characteristics of the common
Tyra showing off her If you'll remember back to Tuesday, September 8, I spent the afternoon live-blogging the premiere episode of "The Tyra Banks Show" on which she unveiled her "real hair." I know both myself and Fashion + Beauty Editor Jennifer Romolini feel Tyra can be totally over-the-top, annoying and horrible, particularly as host of "America's Next Top Model." But I admired Tyra for taking the opportunity to show what her real hair was like. I appreciated her for explaining that women shouldn't be slaves to their hair and spend so much money and time and energy fixating on such a superficial thing ad embrace their real hair. Despite the fact that she has worn "weaves and wigs and pieces and clip-ons and clip-outs and clip-downs and around" since her teens, Tyra promised that she would be rocking her own real hair on the show for a while. Pretty cool, right? Except that Tyra lied!Read More »from Tyra Banks duped us: Her hair is SO not real!
Tyra went on "Larry King Live" last night, and amongst other topics, she once again was asked about her "real hair."
Matrix PhotosMany young girls enjoy playing dress up. Some even enjoy getting dolled up to go out. Much to my mother's chagrin, I was one of those little ladies who loved ruffles and lace and pink, and on special occasions and holidays was allowed to wear my favorite fancy ensembles. These involved a puffy princess dress, lace gloves and a pink patent leather handbag with matching flats. Read: FLATS.Read More »from Three-year-old Suri Cruise wears heels
Both Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have insisted that their three-year-old daughter Suri refuses to wear pants or even coats when the temperatures drop, She only likes skirts and dresses. Kids can be fussy and have strange habits, so we'll buy that. But when your toddler wants to own and wear heels--as she did this week on Newbury Street in Boston--is where parents must draw the line.
I never had the plastic fantasy dress-up heels, but I remember trying on my mom's way-too-big pumps and lipstick and presenting myself to her post-makeover. She'd laugh and say, "OK, now go take it off."
For some odd
Someone out there decided to coin another sort of ridiculous term: Retrosexual. "Good Morning America" aired a segment on retrosexuals this morning, and defined the term as "a person who reaches into their own past to reconnect with an old flame, and then starts the romantic relationship again." With the advent of social networking sites, seeking out previous mates is easier and more enticing than ever. Haven't we all searched for a past boyfriend of crush, even if just out of curiosity to see where they're living or what they look like or if they're married? It's easy, it's harmless--why not?Read More »from Retrosexuals: Dating past loves
This morning, "GMA" reported on a mid-thirties advertising executive in Chicago who was still on the search for Mr. Right. Last May, she sent a message to her first kiss--a boy she met on a camping trip in the '80s--over Facebook. 21 years later they reunited and rekindled the spark they once had. They got married two weeks ago.

Getty ImagesIn the same way that tabloids, gossip blogs, and B.S. biographies plague both perfectly blissful couples and troubled twosomes alike, the focus of such outlets has finally arrived on President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. Despite the fact that we've rarely seen a famous couple who undoubtedly look so in love, Christopher Andersen's new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," searches desperately for any shred of a detail that the first couple are not as happy as they seem.Read More »from Why weâ€™re not buying the Obama relationship gossip
The biography claims Michelle Obama gave her husband the silent treatment because many women "pushed their bodies up against his, slipped phone numbers into his pockets" and "whispered lewd suggestions in his ear." One time, he allegedly said, "Jesus, I wish they'd stop grabbing my ass." Michelle's response: "I want to tell these women, 'Back off. Get a life.' It's just embarrassing, that's all."
Not that we condone this behavior, but the President is a good looking guy. As history

As huge fans of the "Sex and the City" series, we were a bit reluctant to see the movie, wondering how they would pull off a feature-film length follow-up. The movie was decent, and it made millions, but is a sequel really necessary? What more needs to be told? With all the "Golden Girls" comparisons, must we follow Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte until their geriatric years?
Here are just a few potential problems we see about the upcoming "SATC 2" movie.Read More »from 7 things that seem very wrong about the â€œSex and the Cityâ€ movie sequel

I've written before about how the "poor, lonely Jennifer Aniston" stories annoy me to no end, and it seems that Joel McHale and the people at "The Soup" see where I'm coming from. As Jennifer Aniston's new film "Love Happens" (seriously, are these film titles a joke?) hits theaters, "The Soup" has made a spoof video that everyone will enjoy--whether you're on "Team Jen" or not. Does the media perpetuate thisestory of an unlucky in love actress, or is Aniston herself keeping it in motion? We may never really know. But remember folks: you can't believe everything you read, especially when it comes to celebrity romances.

Liv DollsThe Barbie vs. Bratz war died earlier this year, when Mattel ate up the Bratz enterprise along with their bare midriffs. Toy company Spin Master has just introduced the "Liv Dolls" which are supposed to look more like real girls than either of its predecessors and come with changeable wigs and, um, flaws. Yes, each doll has her own background identity like a modern day American Girl. Presenting the Liv girls (from left to right):Read More »from Liv dolls: The non-skanky, â€œimperfectâ€ dolls weâ€™d actually buy for our kids

Katie: Katie! That girl lives for the thrill! But take away her wheels and she's a total klutz!
Sophie: She lives for the latest hair style and loves helping her friends change up their looks.
Alexis: Hey! Alexis in the house! She lives for fashion. And loves to dress her friends."
So what do we have here? An aspiring musician/groupie, a skater, a future beautician, and a fashionista. Well, they're wearing more clothing than the Bratz dolls, and though their heads
