Set your DVRs! Tomorrow (Tuesday), September 13 at 9/8c, “Wedding Fabulous: Sherri Shepherd Gets Married” premieres on the Style Network. Make sure to tune in to see Sherri and me in action as I planned her wedding to Lamar Sally, which took place last month. The special is full of laughs and love — not to mention a few familiar faces, such as Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Kym Whitely, Yvette Nicole Brown and Niecy Nash — and I hope you’ll all remember to watch! I’d love to hear what you think. In the meantime, here’s some sneak peek footage for a taste of what’s to come, courtesy of E! News:

Kim Kardashian Weds!

As many of you may already know, this past Saturday marked the wedding of reality star Kim Kardashian and basketball player Kris Humphries. Details on the star-studded ceremony are few and far between; to get the lowdown on the big day, we’ll all have to tune into the the special that the couple filmed for E!, set to air in October. However, a few things are for certain: first and foremost, the lavish event wasn’t  short on extravagance. The wedding was held in the posh Montecito area in California, and the bride (and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, who served as so-maids of honor) wore custom ivory Vera Wang. She also wore Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a diamond-bedecked headpiece. In fact, it has been reported that Wang designed two additional dresses for Kim to wear throughout the reception. The groom, on the other hand, wore a white peak-lapel tuxedo jacket, black tuxedo pants, and a white shirt and bow tie, all by Ermenegildo Zegna. Kim’s stepfather, Bruce Jenner, walked her down the aisle, in front of over 440 guests, including Mario Lopez, Lindsay Lohan, Demi Lovato, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, Eva Longoria and Serena Williams. Interestingly, the wedding had a black-and-white dress code (tabloids are reporting that Lindsay Lohan attempted to upstage the bride in a white Temperley gown that Pippa Middleton had previously worn in green to the Royal Wedding earlier this year — scandal!). Finally, in an adorable turn of events, her nephew, Kourtney’s 1 1/2 year-old son Mason, was the ringbearer! While it’s inevitable that more details will undoubtedly be revealed within the coming days and weeks, here are a couple of exclusive pictures (courtesy of E! News) to tide us over until October.

Kathy Griffin’s Holiday Home

In addition to working with Sherri Shepherd on her holiday-themed home decor, I also paid my friend Kathy Griffin a visit to decorate her home for the holidays. As per usual, my time spent with the inimitable Ms. Griffin (and her mother, Maggie) is never short on laughs! The E! entertainment channel was there to catch some of the action for E! News, but for those of you who missed it, here are some of my behind-the-scenes shots from that day:

And here are some pictures of her decorated kitchen and dining room:
