Three co-hosts, three weddings, one weekend.
In a flurry of celebrity nuptials, a trio of television ladies — Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd of “The View” and Brooke Burke from ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” — each exchanged “I dos” with their respective fiances/new husbands in recent days.
Behar — who had been in a relationship with Steve Janowitz for 29 years — finally made it legal when she married him on Thursday night in New York. The wedding came two years after Behar announced an engagement to Janowitz in 2009 on “The View,” then broke it off three months later after developing cold feet.
“What I’ll do is we’ll get married, and then I’ll tell it,” she told OK! magazine at the time. And that’s apparently exactly what she did. Her rep has promised that more telling will come when she resumes her roles on both “The View” and “The Joy Behar Show” come Sept. 6.
So that’s wedding one. Let’s move on to wedding two.
On Friday, Burke and her fiance of five years, actor David Charvet, got married on a boat in St. Barts, according to E! Online. The newlyweds, both 39, have two children together — a three-year-old son named Shaya and a four-year-old daughter, Rain — in addition to Burke’s children from her previous marriage to Garth Fisher, daughters Neriah and Sierra.
Naturally, Burke, an avid tweeter, announced the news on Twitter. She also promised that wedding photos would be shared soon.
sending my 1st good morning tweet as Mrs. Charvet...Its true, we finally did it with love and certainty. OMG, I am a married woman!!!
And in wedding No. 3, Behar’s “View” co-host Sherri Shepherd married boyfriend and TV writer Lamar Sally on Saturday in Chicago. Shepherd reportedly had eight bridesmaids, including “The View’s” Elisabeth Hasselback, Niecy Nash and Yvette Nicole Brown of TV’s “Community.”
This is the second marriage for Shepherd, 44, who divorced Jeff Tarpley in 2009 after eight years of marriage. Tarpley and Shepherd have a six-year-old son named Jeffrey, who reportedly walked his mother down the aisle during Saturday’s ceremony. Like Behar, presumably Shepherd will have lots of wedding stories to tell when “The View” gets back on the air next month.
So that’s three weddings in as many days, four if you count the previously reported whirlwind nuptials of Tara Reid. Is everyone just trying to get their matrimonial duties taken care of before the big Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries wedding? I mean, clearly no one wants to compete for attention with that event.
