Best Wedding Photos EVER (Zombies Included)

I have no intention of getting married.  Having said that (and hearing the collective sarcastic gasps of my friends who are well aware that I’m retiring on an iceberg in Antarctica with a colony of penguins), if I ever DO get married (insert snarky comments by religious folks who know there’s no holy covenant in the world that I can uphold), I would totally want wedding photos like THESE (scroll down to the end for the full fab effect).  However, while I’m a huge fan of zombies, I’d like to have Godzilla attacking the wedding party and eating my inlaws.  Ain’t love grand?!

Kim Kardashian and her manslave beau, Kris Humphries tied the knot yesterday in a lavish, multi-million dollar wedding.  I doubt their wedding photos were this fun or hopeful.

RIP Barbara Billingsley

Barbara Billingsley’s passing yesterday was not necessarily a surprise (she was, after all 94 years old) but it was still a loss and a reminder of just how much we (this culture, this country, tv) have changed over the past 50 years.

The woman who played the Beaver’s mom (June Cleaver) on the legendary tv series Leave it to Beaver (and who made wearing pearls and high heels the signature of every housewife during that era), died Saturday, October 16th, of polymyalgia (a rheumatoid disease, at her home in Santa Monica, Calif).

Below are clips from one of the last interviews Billingsley gave where she discusses (among other things) how she managed to become the face of the 50’s housewife (pearls, heels and all).  She makes a funny comment about a question Oprah asked her once in an interview a few years back  (in defense of Oprah, I would’ve asked Billingsley the same question).  While she’s legendary for her portrayal as a 1950’s housewife, my favorite role of Ms. Billingsley’s will always be seeing her “jive-talk” in one of my favorite movies, Airplane.

Thoughts and prayers to her family.
