Wedding Reality TV Shows

The new reality TV show "My Big Friggin' Wedding" aired this week on VH1.  The Landmark hosted one of the couple's reception.  Megin and Johnny's wedding was not only different from our usual weddings since we don't normally have a TV crew of approximately 20 people invade every part of the building including the kitchen-- what also made it special was Megin and Johnny themselves.  This couple was fun, original and certainly entertaining.  A reporter from the New York Times says this about Johnny :  "He also probably never could have mustered up Johnny’s enthusiasm for this particular kind of theater, which results in a performance of goombahness so seemingly studied that it would not be a surprise if we all eventually learned that Johnny is really a graduate student at the Yale School of Drama who comes from Colorado. He appears to have internalized Joe Pesci in “Goodfellas” the way previous generations looked toward Richard Burton’s “Hamlet.”  Follow this link for the entire article. http://tv.nytimes.com/2010/11/01/arts/television/01wedding.html?_r=2

Although Johnny comes across as a natural at acting on TV, he is also a sharp businessman.   He has a food business which sells meatballs, hence the name Johnny Meatballs.  Yes, we did serve Johnny's meatballs at the wedding; I had some and I must say they were very good!  I do know my meatballs after all ;-) ... I spent the first decade of my life in Italy so I consider myself and expert!  On a serious note, I believe that Johnny's business, now in its infancy, will be very successful--I won't be surprised to see it in all supermarkets in the near future.  Check out their website:
