‘Congratulations, You Dummy!’

You may not know this, but I’m a huge My Name Is Earl fan. At the risk of stepping into TMI territory, I’ll confess that the show basically carried me through all of my infant daughter’s nursing troubles. I’d put reruns on in the middle of the night, and struggling to feed my baby didn’t seem too too bad. It’s odd, but now that the show wasn’t picked up for a fifth season, I almost feel like I’m missing part of my parenting arsenal.

Baring my life as I just did was mainly a way of leading into a post about how My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly married entertainment lawyer Simran Singh this past Saturday at a 6 p.m. ceremony on the Dick Clark estate on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.


Pressly wore an ivory silk Jenny Packham gown lushly embellished with over 800,000 Swarovski crystals, glass beads, and sequins, while Singh wore a tuxedo from Hugo Boss. According to JustJared, she walked down the aisle to the Etta James classic “At Last.”


At the reception, Pressly changed into a ’40s-inspired open-back cocktail dress, also designed by Packham, and the couple danced their first dance was to Adele’s β€œTo Make You Feel My Love.”

I wish them all the best, of course, and hope that Pressly has found what she described in this quote in her new husband:

“I’d like to be with somebody who isn’t afraid to take care of me – whether they have the same financial means as me or not,” Pressly told Redbook in March. “What’s important is that they realize there are other ways of taking care of me that have [nothing] to do with money. Like cooking me dinner or going to the grocery store or picking up after yourself.”

*In case you aren’t a My Name Is Earl fan, note that the title of this post is a play on one of the character Joy’s typical greetings.
