I thought about just plain commenting on the Katharine McPhee/Nick Cokas wedding and then realized I didn't have much to say on my own because I really don't care all that much about them as a couple or her career. Then I read the article from People. (I am saying their name because I am going to post their article here, and I would hate for them to get more pissed at me than they currently are. Seems they don't like being called Kneepads Magazine. Go figure.
Singer-actress Katharine McPhee married producer Nick Cokas on Saturday in Beverly Hills, her rep Justin Gray Stone confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.
I guess when you are a PA on a Mickey Rourke film 18 years ago, you can call yourself a producer. Hell, this is Hollywood. Notice that even though he is this big-shot producer, it was her rep who confirmed it exclusively to People. I love how the whole world knew, but the rep only confirmed it with People, thus an exclusive. Wonder if People paid for the cake.
The 23-year-old American Idol season five runner-up and Cokas, 42, exchanged vows in a late afternoon ceremony at Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church.
"(Nick) is the love of my life," McPhee gushed to PEOPLE. "This is a once in a lifetime occasion and everything is just perfect."
Somehow I am doubting that Katharine stopped everything at any point on her wedding day to talk to People. What she did was have her rep make up how she was probably feeling. Does any other magazine use the word gush in a sentence? I also guarantee that 305 people coming to your wedding may be a once in a lifetime occasion, but I think we all know that more than one marriage is coming in her lifetime.
McPhee wore a strapless ivory Manuel Mota gown and Neil Lane jewels (diamond and platinum chandelier earrings and diamond and platinum bracelets), while Cokas wore an Armani tuxedo. Fellow season five Idol contestants Kellie Pickler and Mandisa were among the 305 guests on hand for the nuptials.
I hope Cokas didn't sweat too much because those rental people get pissed if you have sweat stains all over the jackets. So Kellie and Mandisa are the only friends she has left from the show. Nice.
McPhee and Cokas met in 2005 when they performed in a Los Angeles theater production of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Their union began as a friendship and blossomed when McPhee auditioned for American Idol later that year.
Their friendship blossomed when they went on a date and she told him that she made it to Hollywood. A 40 year old guy starring in a local production of the Ghost and Mrs. Muir can see a meal ticket when it is staring at him in the face.
The two quietly got engaged last year when Cokas presented her with a custom-designed round brilliant cut platinum and diamond engagement ring.
Which he is either still paying for or for which he borrowed her credit card or used all his allowance.
McPhee recently wrapped filming the Anna Faris comedy I Know What Boys Like.
That is the People Magazine way to say she has nothing else at all coming up and this wedding better get her some kind of project or she is going to be paying for that honeymoon with Playboy money.
Now, if you think I am a bit miffed about this whole thing, I am, because honestly when I met her last year I got the vibe that I had a chance. That is when I did that blind item that they were done. I think they were done at that point almost a year ago. I don't know what happened or how much ass Nick kissed over the past year, but he got her. Now if he could just get her some parts he could start working on that 50% of her earnings.
