I caught this gem that I didn't remember hearing. At the 9:50 mark Howard tells Lisa G he is not having a celebrity wedding and there won't be celebrities there. If a recall correctly some of the guests: Donald Trump Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos (Mark married them) John Stamos Barbara Walters Joan Rivers Billy Joel and Gold digging trophy wife Natalie Maines Jimmy Kimmel Sarah Silverman Jillian Barbarie Adam Carolla Chevy Chase (who he had met once before) These are jus the people that showed up. I wonder how many other celebrities turned the invite down. Who wasn't invited? Richard, Sal, Lisa G, Jackie, and probably 50 other staff members that have worked for him for years. I'm willing to bet after Howard made this announcement he got home and was given a lecture by Beth. She probably told him they needed celebrities there if they want to get covered by Access Hollywood, Inside Edition, E!, Entertainment Tonight, TMZ, etc.
