Even in the frenzy of wedding planning, Vanessa Williams is a triple threat.

The singer and actress adds another hyphenate – dancer – to her bio in an exclusive clip from Friday's David Tutera's CELEBrations when she's surprised by a troupe of salsa dancers who want her to join their routine at a pre-wedding party.

Okay, "join" might not be the right word. Williams, 52, sets the floor on fire.

"I was not prepared to hit the dance floor tonight," Williams claims, "but salsa music does something to me."

David Tutera's Ex 'Devastated' by Ongoing Divorce Drama

David Tutera's Husband 'Devastated' by Ongoing Divorce Drama

Originally posted 05/03/2013 05:30PM

David Tutera's estranged husband is extending an olive branch in their ongoing, and increasingly salacious, divorce fight – and hoping the WE tv celebrity wedding planner does the same.

"I was devastated by David's unilateral decisions, both in 2012, and again this year, to end our marriage, and they sent me into a tailspin, from which I am proud to say, I have recovered," Ryan Jurica tells PEOPLE in a statement.

"I only wish David the best; I only want the best for him. David and I were partners for over a decade in love, life and business."

"We are about to be parents of two beautiful children," the statement continues. "Our children are and always will be siblings – and I am hopeful that David will take a step back from his anger and his desire to publicly try our marital conclusion, and instead address this most personal of issues in a private, mature and fair manner – as I have always done and will continue to do."

David Tutera Responds to Husband's Claims of Sexual Addiction

Originally posted 05/02/2013 07:00AM

As a move to end the 10-year domestic partnership of My Fair Wedding host David Tutera and Ryan Jurica heads to the courts, Tutera has issued a statement to PEOPLE responding to allegations culled from Jurica's legal papers, accusing the WE tv celebrity wedding planner of a sexual addiction and the hiring of prostitutes.

"The allegations against me are baseless and untrue and I will fight vigorously to defend my reputation in the court of law as well as the court of public opinion," says Tutera. "I believe them to be fabrications of a desperate individual in order to gain a legal advantage in our separation."

He goes on the say: "I am saddened by these developments; I am angered by the lies; and I am committed to moving beyond this painful moment to focus on my professional commitments and the upcoming birth of my children."

While My Fair Wedding host David Tutera may share in the commitment joy of many couples as a celebrity wedding planner on his WE tv show, his own 10-year marriage is currently unraveling in court.

Tutera, who wed longtime partner Ryan Jurica in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal, is seeking to end his domestic partnership in California, where the couple live. (Same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in California.)

The couple separated on New Year's Day 2013, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents filed by Tutera on April 19 and obtained by PEOPLE. The filing, which cites "irreconcilable differences," also states that the two men are expecting the birth of twins via a surrogate in July.

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel's Wedding: What David Tutera Envisions

Originally posted 10/19/2012 11:00AM

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding should be a small, quiet, low-key affair – modest, understated and fairly low energy. Not!

Celebrity wedding planner David Tutera expects the opposite, predicting a supremely fun and lavish event as the star couple tie the knot in Italy.

"I think they're going to have a very fun wedding. It's going to be a young environment … very colorful, lots of lighting, lots of guests, and probably very over the top," he tells PEOPLE.
