The party wasn't the only "gig" that brought Wendy to sin city this weekend.  On Friday, she kicked off the comedy series ‘Lipshtick’ at the Venetian with her FIRST one-woman show/comedy gig.

On her daily talk show, Wendy revealed that she enlisted the help of comedy vet Luenell to help her with the timing and structure of her jokes. 



In magazines..... 

A few days ago, we brought you pics from Lupita N'yongo's fabulous VOGUE pictorial which featured her posing with a snake.  Though she looked very comfortable in the pics, it turns out that Lupita has a fear of snakes!  On Instagram, she posted BTS footage from the "snake" shoot and encouraged her followers to fight their fears.  

She said, "@voguemagazine #bts: rehearsal for the snake shot. Nobody said being on the cover would be easy. #FightYourFearAndWin. (DOP and laughter by @rscapellan)"

Hmmm.....Fear never look so fashionable.

It was interesting to spot Brody Jenner, the brother of Kim Kardashian at the wedding...especially since he skipped out on her nuptials to Kanye West! It was reported that Brody backed out of KimYe's festivities because the couple did not invite his girlfriend. Tsk Tsk. looks like Brody's girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter landed an invite to Reggie's wedding. #nodrama

Congrats to the couple.
