The National Enquirer recently reported that Kandi Burruss’ wedding this past weekend was completely ruined by an inappropriate, drunken speech given by fellow singer and bridesmaid Fantasia Barrino.
“Kandi was horrified!” an eyewitness exclaimed to the magazine. “She and Fantasia are close, but this may ruin their friendship.”
The sources adds that Tasia’s speech was riddled with profanity and totally infuriated Kandi’s new husband, Tood.
“Fantasia started by saying, ‘Kandi, you are my m*therf**kin’ friend and I love you,’” the snitch continued. “Then she called Kandi the ‘realest b*tch I know’ and rambled on about her big butt. Todd was furious, and the other bridesmaids got Fantasia to sit down. Thank goodness!”
Reps for Kandi recently commented on Tasia’s wild wedding speech to TMZ and according to the rep, Kandi found it to be hilarious. Apparently the ladies go way back so there’s not much Tasia can do (or say) to offend the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star.
There are lots of rumors floating around about what will be going down on the day that Kim Kardashian becomes Kim Kardashian-West. It’s difficult to draw the line regarding which stories are believable and which ones aren’t so believable, especially since Kanye once claimed that he wanted fighter jets to be incorporated into the ceremony. However, one rumor that seems like it could totally happen is baby North joining mama Kim as she walks down the aisle to meet Kanye at the altar!
“Kim is planning to carry North down the aisle at her wedding,” a friend of the Kardashians recently told Life&Style.
Since Kim’s father, Rob Kardashian Sr., is deceased, it was believed that her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, would be giving her away at the ceremony. But now that her little girl might be joining her on the wedding stroll, the insider claims that Bruce is no longer needed.
“She doesn’t think she’s going to have Bruce walk her anymore,” the source added.
It would be nice for Kanye and Kim to incorporate their baby girl in the ceremony. But we won’t know what’s really going down until the big event unfolds.
Speaking of beautiful brides-to-be, Kelly Rowland recently discussed plans for her upcoming wedding to longtime boyfriend and manager, Tim Witherspoon. And it turns out that she’s following through with her original plans of having a very small, intimate ceremony.
“I just wanted it to be a nice peaceful day with just me, him and our mothers,” the “Dirty Laundry” singer told Hello Beautiful. “That’s it.”
As for an actual wedding party, Kelly says there won’t be one. No bridesmaids. No groomsmen. No muss. No fuss. And while the former Destiny’s Child singer seems extremely pleased with this decision, she admits that those close to her, who were looking to partake in her special day, are not.
“Nope [no bridesmaids]. And they’re not happy about that.”
The news definitely isn’t shocking to fans of the soon-to-be-married singer. After confirming her engagement just a few months ago, Kelly revealed that an extravagant wedding with a super long guest list wasn’t an ideal situation for her.
“I think we just really want it to be us and our pastor. That’s it,” she told People last December. “I mean, we are the only two that’s going to be in the marriage.”
As long as Kelly and her fiancé are happy on their big day, that’s all that really matters.

Gabrielle Union Says Dwyane Wade Took The Lead On Planning Their Wedding: ‘Secretly, This Is His Princess Moment’
Considering that she didn’t have the time to participate in the planning of her first wedding, you’d think that Gabrielle Union would jump at the opportunity to plan the wedding of her dreams the second time around. But according to the “Being Mary Jane” actress, her fiancé, Dwyane Wade, is the one having all of the fun planning their wedding.
“I’m out doing wine tastings, secretly this is like his princess moment he has waited for for a long time, he’s been hoarding bridal magazines, he’s very ready,” she joked during an appearance on “The Ellen Show.”
The 41-year-old bride-to-be adds that her Miami Heat-playing boo is involved in the tiniest details of what their special day will look like.
“He’s into aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning. He is on. To have a centerpiece, to not have a centerpiece—he has very strong opinions. [He says] no centerpieces. Who cares? Um, he does! He’s very particular about the music and the guest list.”
She went on to reiterate that not many people will be invited to the wedding.
“I think people are thinking [the guest list] is a lot bigger than it is. They’ll find out when [they're not invited].”
Ellen also probed about the couple’s 9-year age difference, which Gabby says is most prevalent during bedtime and when it comes to their musical preferences.
“The biggest is like for music. Like I want the O’Jays to play at our wedding. He wants Young Jeezy. You know, I’m like, ‘Ooh, Patti Labelle,’and he’s like, ‘Ariana Grande.’ It’s night and day.”
“If we’re watching ‘Nashville,’ which is one of our favorite shows, I might drift off. That’s one of the downsides of dating an older gal—we drift off.”
While she’s speaking a little more freely about their wedding plans, she remains tight lipped about the actual wedding date.

It appears that La Toya Jackson is still single after all. Over the weekend reports of a secret wedding between La Toya Jackson and her longtime business partner Jeffre Phillips. Reports claimed that La Toya and Jeffre tied the knot during an intimate ceremony this past Friday in Los Angeles, California.
The rumors, of course, didn’t seem too far fetched, as Jeffre did, in fact, propose to La Toya on her reality show, “Life with La Toya.” Though his proposal seemed a bit odd, he expressed that he popped the question because he was sick of seeing the former “Celebrity Apprentice” star be “wooed” by other men. Though all signs seemed to point La Toya and Jeffre tying the knot, La Toya’s people are actually denying the rumors.
“The rumors that La Toya Jackson married her longtime business partner Jeffre Phillips are completely false,” a rep tells Entertainment Tonight.
The spokesperson went on to scold the original source of the false report.
“The reporting outlet should be embarrassed for their mistake and at least make an effort to find facts to back up their story before reporting.”
In that case, we’ll hold our well wishes for if/when La Toya and Jeffre ever do decide to get married.
Though Pharrell Williams has been quite vocal about his feelings for rumored wife, Helen Lasichanh, the couple’s wedding plans have been top secret. Word on the street is that they officially married in France back in August, but the pair have yet to officially celebrate their union with family and friends. Well, until now, that is.
Page Six is reporting that the alleged newlyweds will officially celebrate their nuptials this weekend at a swanky shindig at Miami’s Tropical Botanical Garden. The guest list reportedly includes Robin Thicke, David Guetta, Gwen Stefani and Paula Patton. Jay Z and Justin Timberlake are also rumored to be performing.
According to reports, the lavish party will be held outside and guests are asked to wear “garden party attire.”
“Pharrell has worked with everyone. He just produced Miley Cyrus’ album, he has worked with Beyoncé, Madonna, Shakira, Daft Punk, Kanye West and Jennifer Lopez. Half the music business will be there,” said one insider.
Pharrell and Helen have one son together, Rocket Man Williams. Pharrell often boasts that becoming romantically involved with his best friend was one of the best decisions he has ever made.
“It’s awesome. I can’t tell anyone what to do. I can’t give anyone relationship advice, but the bestie thing is awesome. Yeah [she's my best friend]. Every night is like a sleepover,” Pharrell gushed this past summer.
Congrats to the beautiful couple!
Last week there was speculation that Zoe Saldana And Marco Perego secretly wed in London this past June. This week, the news has been confirmed.
Us Weekly got the scoop on the couple from an inside source who told them the newlyweds have ”known each other for a long time.” Another sourced added in their two cents on the union, saying “They have great chemistry.”
Speaking specifically on the private nuptials, another contact said the ceremony was “super small but very romantic and beautiful,” and only attended by a few close friends and relatives.
In light of this news, I think it’s safe to say when Zoe Saldana moves on, she moves on. After an 11-year relationship with Keith Britton, CEO of My Fashion Database, Zoe moved on to her “The Words” co-star, Bradley Cooper, with whom she had a very short fling. Now it seems “androgynous” Zoe won’t be making good on her musings that she might end up raising her children with a woman one day because 34-year-old Italian artist Marco Perego has snatched her up and made an honest woman of her.
Wonder how long it will be before these two start popping out bambinos?
Congrats to the newlyweds!
