JENNA BUSH'S WEDDING

"What a breath of fresh air. Jenna and Henry did things their way and had a joyous at-home wedding"

Jenna Bush had a chance to get married in the White House. Instead, she chose a simple wedding in her parents' backyard. I can't help but think someone has raised this young lady with an admirable set of values. Congratulations to Jenna and Henry. I wish them nothing but happiness.

I really enjoyed your touching article about Jenna Bush's recent marriage. It was heartwarming to find out how special her wedding weekend was and how her parents helped to make it that way. As much as some people criticize our President, this article showed that underneath it all, he is just like any father who would give the world to see his daughters happy.

As the mother of the bride, Laura Bush couldn't have looked more beautiful. I was surprised to see that our First Lady looks 20 years younger than she did 20 years ago. Whatever her secret fountain of youth is, I'd love to know about it.

With a 20-year-old son in Iraq I have a hard time caring about Jenna Bush's wedding. If she were to join the Army, then I would be excited.

BRAD AND ANGELINA

I had my doubts when I first heard that Angelina and Brad were a couple. I liked Brad with Jennifer Aniston and was sorry to hear that they were splitting. Having said that, it seems to me that Brad and Angelina have found something in each other that both had been searching for. And I am truly happy for them.

SEX AND THE CITY

I applaud Kristin Davis. Many people dealing with alcoholism still keep the problem hidden and private. It's wonderful that a beautiful, funny and smart woman like Ms. Davis can talk openly about her recovery.

The great thing about Sarah Jessica Parker is that she can wear anything and get away with it. Although I wasn't a fan of the hat she wore to the London premiere of Sex and the City, SJP is the only one on the planet who could wear something like that and still look good.

SELENA GOMEZ

Kudos to Selena's mother, Mandy Teefey, for raising such a down-to-earth and responsible daughter. It's a shame more parents don't raise their children in such a well-grounded way.

BODY AFTER BABY

Many readers thought celeb moms who slim down quickly after having babies enjoy a distinct advantage over the typical postpartum mother. "Most American women have no dietitian and no trainer to help them get back to their pre-baby state two months after giving birth," writes Katie Maki, a nurse from Ontonagon, Mich. "This is not a realistic picture of what it means to be a full-time mom in our society." Marci Warhaft-Nadler of Ontario adds, "I'm always frustrated when magazines choose to print the impossible-to-maintain regimens of stars as a guide for us 'normal' people." But Monica Bevill of Blytheville, Ark., says Hollywood moms still have to do the work: "Even with all the professional help, these ladies had to eat properly and do the exercise to lose the weight—and I think they look great!
