I’ve had the best Memorial Day weekend and am so inspired to continue to wait for my “Mr. Right.” I know he’s coming…soon! I had the privilege of attending the celebrity wedding for my good friend Jay Tucker who married the beautiful, funny TV personality Niecy Nash on Saturday, May 28. The two exchanged vows at the luxurious Church Vineyard Estate in Malibu, CA.

Nearly 200 guests including celebrities Sheryl Lee Ralph (matron of honor), Wendy Raquel Robinson (bridesmaid), Shaun Robinson, Blair Underwood, Kym Whitley, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek and others witnesssed this magical, memorable moment! Niecy and Jay are completely in love and I’m sure everyone left the wedding feeling refreshed, inspired and determined to rekindle their own love lives. Oh yes, seeing these two together makes one want to prioritize the beautiful institution of marriage. I’m happy to report that “Love” is still in season!

I also had a chance to reconnect with one of my longtime friends and first PR clients Miss Sherri Shepherd (bridesmaid) from The View, who is engaged to be married in August to the great, fun-loving TV writer Lamar Sally (they are also perfect together). I am so glad I went to this wedding…I needed the encouragement! Congrats Jay & Niecy! Continue to make us smile. Continue to make us proud.

May 25–We all knew it was coming sooner or later. Reality star princess Kim Kardashian has been searching for true love for quite some time. She’s gorgeous, her career is red-hot and all she needed was Mrs. in front of her name. Well Kimmie doesn’t have to look any further. Her NBA New Jersey Nets boyfriend of six months, Kris Humphries, proposed marriage at her Beverly Hills home on May 18. When Kim walked into the bedroom she saw ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?” spelled out in rose petals. Awww how sweet. Sounds like a keeper we think. Move over Odoms (Khloe & Lamar)….there’s a new Kardashian couple in town!

May 23–When it comes to married life…decisions, decisions. Wondering if ladies are more inclined to take their husband’s last name completely, keep their maiden name as their last name (lots of celebs do this), or perhaps hyphenate? And what do men prefer? Chime in on today’s Coffee Break with Tracey & Shulie!
