Joan Rivers presides over pals' wedding

Joan Rivers played cupid on Valentine's Day (14Feb13) to preside over the nuptials of two friends in New York.

The TV personality is an ordained minister and she oversaw the vows of celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey and musician Theo Bleckmann at the Big Apple's iconic Empire State Building on Thursday, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

During the ceremony, Joan Rivers joked, "I wouldn't want to marry anyone else, except maybe Britney Spears, so I could watch her lip-sync her vows."

In a post on her Twitter.com page, she quipped, "Thrilled to be an ordained minister, but I'm also a performer - every wedding I officiate has a cover charge and a two-drink minimum."
