The Supreme Court rulings on DOMA and California's Prop 8 may have paved the way to a very happy occasion for Lily Tomlin: a wedding for her and Jane Wagner, her partner of 42 years. "We're thinking maybe we'll get married," Tomlin told E! this week. "You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it." But don't expect a solemn affair: "No rings, no bridal dresses," says Tomlin, 73. "Maybe we'll be dressed like chickens." (More Lily Tomlin stories.)
