Great news! Did you know that the Weddings and Celebrations section of the 'New York Times' exists to transform you on a lazy Sunday afternoon from Kathy Griffin to Cathy Guisewite? It's true! Studies show that reading what we used to call 'Vows' actually sets your internal feminism and self-esteem clocks back eight years. Anyhoo, put down that Ben & Jerry's, unloved fatty, and let's see who won the battle of the marriages this week!
Sometimes, even when a black Harvard grad marries a white Harvard grad, a child of a Kingston dignitary marries a child of a Kingston dignitary, a Democrat marries a Republican, a turkey-shooting Yale grad marries a turkey-shooting Yale grad and a Phish phan marries a Phish fan , it's the socialite and the Weeds executive producer who ultimately steal our hearts.
