Kim and Kanye's partial wedding guest list

Posted: May 23, 2014

AS THIS OUR last column before the Wedding of the Kalpa (a Hindu term for 4.32 billion years, give or take a few millennia), we thought we'd take a look at who might be attending the nuptials of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Tattle? Not attending.

Joan Rivers? Not attending.

Taylor Swift? Not attending.

According to Us Weekly, Jay Z will be there, but Beyonce's still a "maybe." Guests include model Chrissy Teigen with her husband, Penn commencement speaker John Legend; tennis great Serena Williams; Larsa Pippen and La La Anthony - whose husbands happen to be basketball stars Scottie Pippen and Carmelo Anthony - and jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, who co-hosted the bride's girls' night out in Paris.

Others expected to attend include fashion designer Rachel Roy, the rumored cause of the Jay Z- Solange Knowles blowup; Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley (Vogue editor Anna Wintour was reportedly invited but declined); celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson (doing double duty, making sure Kardashian brother Rob can fit in his suit); star stylists Chris McMillan and Jen Atkin; Q-Tip; Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis and girlfriend Abbey Wilson; and Tyga and video-girl Blac Chyna. Longtime Kim K BFFs Malika Haqq, Brittny Gastineau, Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck and Shelli Azoff will also be dancing the hora at the wedding.

There will also be a boatload of Kardashians and Jenners, although not Brody Jenner, Us reports, who nixed the wedding when the invitation nixed his girlfriend.

Tattle, as you know, hates to be catty, but for such an over-the-top wedding, that is hardly an over-the-top guest list.

Except for maybe Jay Z, it seems like the type of crowd you'd get at a wedding for one of the "Real Housewives."

Oh, never mind.

Denis Leary ("Rescue Me") has given the Detroit Fire Department $260,000 worth of new equipment paid for by proceeds from "Burn," a documentary film about the city's firefighters, which he executive produced.

Mayor Mike Duggan and Fire Commissioner Edsel Jenkins yesterday accepted the donation that was made through the Leary Firefighters Foundation.

Leary says "every dollar makes a difference" and that he's blessed to help "courageous firefighters."

"Burn" chronicles the struggles of Detroit firefighters. Filmmakers Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez followed firefighters to make the movie. It has screened in 170 cities.

* Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is to appear on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on June 3, making good on his promise after the host came to Chicago in March and jumped into icy Lake Michigan.

The pair made a deal earlier this year. If Fallon did the "Polar Plunge" on March 2, then Emanuel would appear on Fallon's show in New York.

Emanuel took the quick, but frigid, dip first wearing a T-shirt and shorts. Fallon went next, dressed in a full suit and tie. It was 10 degrees outside and the water temperature was 32.

The annual event drew several thousand plungers, raising more than $1 million for Special Olympics Chicago.

Paul McCartney has been treated for a virus that led him to cancel concert dates in Japan and South Korea.

Publicist Perri Cohen said in a statement yesterday that all McCartney's troubles were now so far away after he received treatment at a hospital in Tokyo. He is expected to make a complete recovery.

The statement also says Sir Paul "has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world."

* Same-sex marriage may now be legal in Pennsylvania, but don't expect "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson to officiate at any of the weddings.

Robertson was back sermonizing at his West Monroe, La., church on Easter Sunday and in his scripture quoting included homosexuals with other groups such as thieves and adulterers as hell-bound sinners.

The video was posted yesterday by RadarOnline.com. It was posted to YouTube by Robertson's Whites Ferry Road Church on April 21, so it's not as if he's trying to keep his views a secret.

"Duck Dynasty" is scheduled to begin its sixth season on June 11. Coincidence?

* Lifetime says it will air a movie in 2015 about Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's relationship, with actress Angela Bassett set to direct.

In a statement, Bassett, making her debut as a director, says she has high regard for both Houston's and Brown's talents and feels a responsibility in telling their story.

* Prosecutors have charged actor Michael Jace with murder after his wife was shot and killed in their Los Angeles home. The couple's two young sons were home at the time of the killing.

Jace, 51, played a police officer in "The Shield" and could face 50 years to life in state prison if convicted - unless detective Vic Mackey can mess up the evidence and figure out how to get him off.
