‘Shedding for the Wedding’ host Sara Rue headed to Vegas this weekend to mark the end of her own single life with a bachelorette party at Tao. I didn’t know she was engaged to get married! OMG! Doesn’t she look great? I’ve loved Sara since ‘Almost Perfect.’ She’s openly talked about losing more than 50 pounds and is now a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig . And Sara will look great in her wedding dress, given how she looks here. Congratulations! Photos by FAME

Eva Longoria wasn’t the only ‘Desperate Housewives’ star at a charity event this past weekend: Teri Hatcher hosted the Red Carpet Yard Sale. It was a fundraiser for St. Jude Hospital in Santa Monica.
Several of Teri’s ‘Desperate Housewives’ co-stars attended, such as Mark Moses and James Denton. Former ‘Heroes’ star Greg Grunberg was also there. What a great cause! And I bet there was some great stuff to buy, too.
