NY Times Connections Gets You NY Times Wedding Announcements

wedding GIf you’ve ever dreamed of having your wedding described in the pages of The New York Times, here’s the key: Have a lot of money. Kidding! Sort of. A better way to find your Day Of Love in the paper is via connections. That had to have helped Richard Samson and Cornelia Griggs.

Samson (wedded to Howard McGillin) and Griggs (Robert Goldstone) both had their weddings announced in Sunday’s Times. Both have some strong ties to the paper. Samson is a senior counsel for the Times Company and Griggs is the daughter of Jill Abramson, executive editor of the paper.

We wish both couples all the happiness in the world. We’re sure staffers at the Times do too.

Martha Stewart Slams Rachael Ray On Cooking

martha2212.jpgNightline” has an interview with lifestyle and cooking tycoon Martha Stewart tonight, in which she talks about how it felt to lose “more than a billion dollars” while in prison (though whether that billion was hers personally, or tied up in Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is not made clear) and what it’s like to be completely bonkers (which, in Stewart’s opinion, involves her picking up gravel from her mile-long driveway in Maine).

But our favorite segment features Stewart slamming bubbly 30-minute meal cooking television personality and talk show host Rachael Ray for not being a real chef.

Video after the jump.
