Wedding Fever

So, it's official, Graeme Smith is engaged. And South Africa is not happy about it.

Is it because Morgan Deane, his new fiancée, is Irish and we expected our Proudly South African Cricket Captain to choose a Proudly South African wife? Or are we just being sulky because the Proteas lucked out in the Cricket World Cup and now we blame it on him being ‘distracted’?

There is also the other obvious reason... she’s not Minki. We really liked Minki van der Westhuizen.  

But let’s put our personal feelings aside and compare Minki and Morgan's attributes.

Minki was a model for Guess, and guess who Morgan’s modelled for... well no-one important really. Both are TV presenters. Minki has double Ds and Morgan has... well, you will have to read our article Minki vs Morgan to find out.

Their engagement comes in a month of wedding madness. On April 29 Prince William and Kate Middleton will get married. We’re so excited we are creating a special Channel24 report page where you can get up-to-the-minute news, watch video footage and see all the pictures first and in one place. But more about that next week.

In other wedding news... local singer Jakkie Louw got married last weekend. He was professional (or crazy) enough to take time out of his honeymoon to perform at KKNK this week. 

The week before Reese Witherspoon got hitched on her ranch in California.

And last month local beauty and new mommy Lee-Ann Liebenberg tied the knot. YOU magazine got the exclusive but we managed to get a picture.

It seems everyone is doing it, even both my sisters, Tanja and Elmarie are now engaged! They are both pretty but I guess since they’re not famous, you don’t care, do you?
