WE tv Also Unveils New Companion Book to Original Series, My Fair Wedding

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 22, 2010 - WE tv announced its January original series premieres today, including the much-anticipated debut of Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, followed by the premiere of A Stand Up Mother, on Thursday, January 20 at 9 pm and 10 pm, et/pt. On Sunday, January 2, during the network's popular Ultimate Wedding Sunday line-up, WE tv will debut a fourth season of its hit wedding series, My Fair Wedding with David Tutera, unveiling at 9 pm, and a fifth season of Rich Bride, Poor Bride at 10 pm.

In Joan Knows Best?, the famous mother-daughter duo, Joan and Melissa Rivers, star together in their first reality series as Joan moves from NYC to Los Angeles to be with Melissa and her grandson, Cooper. The eight new one-hour episodes air every Thursday night at 9 pm. A Stand Up Mother follows comedian Tammy Pescatelli as she juggles her rising comedy career in Los Angeles with raising her son in Meadville, Penn., close to her loud, extended family. The original series features six, one-hour episodes and airs every Thursday night at 10 pm.

The newest season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera features twelve one-hour episodes showasing all-new brides, all-new stories and all-new exciting transformations, every Sunday night at 9 pm. My Fair Wedding continues to be a viewer favorite on WE tv. The third season was the series' best season yet, growing +17% among W18-49 and +9% among W25-54, over season two.

The upcoming season of Rich Bride, Poor Bride, airing every Sunday night at 10 pm following My Fair Wedding, features twelve one-hour episodes that showcase couples aiming to stay within a budget. But when costs collide with expectations, it's only a matter of time before emotions and drama take center stage.

To coincide with the new season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera, WE tv in partnership with Simon & Shuster, is releasing the ultimate companion wedding guide, My Fair Wedding, available in bookstores on Tuesday, January 11. In addition to featuring stories of the most memorable brides from previous seasons, the book includes expert tools for creating an unforgettable wedding affair. Not your average wedding guide, My Fair Wedding is grounded in David Tutera's philosophy that regardless of budget, every bride can have a fantasy wedding as long as the right choices go into the planning and every detail counts. The book features insightful and indispensible "What Would David Do?" sidebars, self-quizzes, real-life etiquette and time-tested manners, as well as other exclusive features.
