It sure is set to be the wedding of the decade with such publicity surrounding it, but lets just hope unlike countless other famous marriages this one will last.


  1. It's kinda sad to think that a lot of people are going to watch that on tv just because they wish they were her/him.

  2. Is it the normal reaction to be totally uninterested in this apparently monumentous event? Hahahaha...

  3. Most definitely Mike, I feel the exact same. But I need to try keep up with the most recent news haha

  4. If you were a prince, even if you were ugly as shit, you could basically have any girl.

  5. My mom and aunt are forcing me to watch this.. it's starting at 1am on the west coast right now. T.T hahahhaa they are AVID fans of this shit.
