Via The Jerusalem Post, the Hudson Valley News is reporting who some of the celebrity guests at the July 31 Mezvinsky-Clinton nuptials in Rhinebeck, New York, will be.
The biggest names, of course, are President Obama and the First Lady. But also count on Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand (presumably with hubby James Brolin—he is such a rock), Kate Capshaw and Steven Speilberg, Harold Ickes, Terry McAuliffe (he is basically Bill Clinton’s manservant at this point), former British Prime Minister John Major (what, no Blair?), Doris Kearns Goodwin, Ted Turner, and Denise Rich (ex-wife of Marc, the prominent Jewish philanthropist whom the bride’s father notoriously pardoned in 2001).
This is one day on which the Hudson Valley won’t be such a Sleepy Hollow!
(Boy, writing in the US Weekly style is tougher than it looks. My respect to them.)
(And, no, still no word on whether she’s converting.)
