It looks like August was a good month for members of ABC’s The View – nearly half of the popular day time talk-show’s co-hosts were married off.
First, Joy Behar married Steve Janowitz, her long-time boyfriend of 29 years, in a private Manhattan ceremony on Thursday night.
Then, just two days later, Behar’s co-host Sherri Shepherd tied the knot at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, marrying TV writer, Lamar ‘Sal’ Sally.
In stark contrast to the Behar-Janowitz nuptials, Shepherd’s wedding featured eight bridesmaids including celebrity friends and co-workers Elisabeth Hasselback, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kym Whitley, and Niecy Nash.
When it came time to walk down the aisle, Shepherd was accompanied by her six-year-old son Jeffery, a move that had more than one meaning.
“I want Lamar to know that when my son walks me down the aisle, you’re not only getting me, but you’re getting this little boy,” Sherri explained to People magazine earlier this year. “He’s going to give me away because it’s symbolic that he’s giving me away for this man to protect me and protect him.”
Sherri and Lamar got engaged last December when he presented her with a three carat princess cut diamond, following their courtship of nearly a year.
For more details regarding the happy couple’s special day, the Style network captured the whole event with their cameras and will air the highlights as one-hour special, Wedding Fabulous: Sherri Shepherd Gets Married, on September 13.
