Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are making their wedding album available to us little people. Of course, this access to the big celebrity lifestyle will cost you a few bucks. People Magazine has the scoop, the pics, and the details on Jessica's fairytale wedding on newsstands.
The magazine cover, which reveals a pretty-in-pink bride was featured on "The View." The political conversations on "The View" may get the most headlines, but the discussions on love are often the most juicy. The "she looks gorgeous" praise of Biel was fleeting, and then the gals turned to chatting about the dark side of love.
Unlike the "Kim's Fairytale Wedding" magazine cover, which eliminated groom Kris Humphries out altogether, Justin Timberlake is seen on People leaping into the air. Of course our favorite co-hosts couldn't resist comparing the moment to Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah Winfrey's sofa to express his love for "Kate" Holmes.
It was all about the pros and cons of getting married. The conversation kicked off with Susan Sarandon's new revelations on marriage. Of course, the acclaimed actress shared a blissful domestic partnership with actor Tim Robbins for 23 years. Her sentiment, "I believe marriage is for other people," pretty much sums it all up!
Show creator Barbara Walters started to read a list of long-time-in-love partners who never married. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for 29 years. Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have been together for 15 years. We're sure there are more but that's all BW could get out before Joy Behar pointed out that these are all wealthy people who don't need the protections of marriage. After all, as Elisabeth Hasselbeck explained, marriage as an institution protects people in case of unforeseen issues.
Joy had an interesting perspective: She was with her longtime beau Steve for over two decades before tying the knot. First she quipped that the sex had improved after marriage; then she said she was joking. In fact, she feels that she has experienced no difference inside or out of the state of marriage.
In a poignant moment, the show's elder stateswoman confessed that being married made her feel "trapped." Whoopi agreed with Barbara and said that the two should marry each other. Sherri Shepherd intimated that when times were tough in her current marriage, the covenant of her sacred vows kept her strong. Whoopi said that she could create that partner covenant without vows.
Interestingly, the show's musical guest was Taylor Swift. Her current love is a real live Kennedy. She's best known for writing "moody songs about boys," as she called them on the couch with the ladies. Apropos of the episode, Swift belted out her hit tune, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
