Life & Style Weekly - - Contents -

Talk about the wife of the party! Don­ning a bridal-in­spired feath­ered frock and drip­ping in over $1 mil­lion in di­a­monds, Priyanka Cho­pra cel­e­brated her bridal shower at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Box Cafe in NYC on Oct. 28. “This was not a con­ven­tional shower; it was a night­club in Tiffany. There was so much danc­ing — like five hours of danc­ing,” gushed the 36-year-old, who is set to wed Nick Jonas in De­cem­ber. “My brides­maids did this whole thing with all my fa­vorite foods and cock­tails and songs and peo­ple and women that I love in New York. It was so spe­cial and won­der­ful. It was such an eclec­tic, fun, di­verse, cool group of women that it just made me so happy.” Guests in­cluded fa­mous friends like Kelly Ripa and Lupita Ny­ong’o as well as fu­ture in-laws Kevin Jonas Sr. and Denise Jonas. “Nick’s mom gave a re­ally mov­ing speech,” a source tells Life & Style, “about how they’re so happy to have Priyanka in the fam­ily.” Ev­ery­one re­ceived cus­tom­ized pass­port hold­ers from Tiffany — and they’ll need them for the wed­ding! Nick, 26, and Priyanka, who got en­gaged in July af­ter just two months of dat­ing, “are ty­ing the knot in In­dia,” the source re­veals. “There will be two cer­e­monies — one tra­di­tional In­dian, the other Amer­i­can — and the fes­tiv­i­ties will last a few days.”

Though the chis­eled “Chains” crooner was trav­el­ing, “Priyanka chat­ted with Nick via Facetime at the party,” says a spy.

Start­ing from scratch! Tarek El Moussa is used to hav­ing to gut sin­gle-fam­ily homes, but in 2016, it was his mar­riage to wife Christina that just wasn’t up to code — and af­ter seven years of mar­riage, the Flip or Flop stars, who share chil­dren Tay­lor, 8, and Bray­den, 3, an­nounced they were fil­ing for di­vorce. “It was an aw­ful process,” Tarek told Life & Style at the LA Mis­sion Gala in Bev­erly Hills on Oct. 25. “[But it also] caused me to be a much bet­ter dad. My goal in life is to be the best dad pos­si­ble be­cause ev­ery­thing I do is go­ing to af­fect them, and I want them to be awe­some.” As for the se­cret to co-parenting with Christina, 35? “You could hate each other, but you never in­volve the kids, and you never ever use the kids to hurt the other per­son,” in­sists Tarek, 37. “I want my kids to know that me and Mom are OK, we can do things to­gether. I want to do Hal­loween, Christ­mas, Thanks­giv­ing to­gether be­cause it’s still my fam­ily.” While Christina cel­e­brates her one-year an­niver­sary with her boyfriend, Bri­tish TV host Ant An­stead, Tarek has yet to find love again. “I can’t even imag­ine be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship right now,” the HGTV hunk says. “Di­vorce was tough, and I’m still re­cov­er­ing, you know?”

“Noth­ing else mat­ters but the kids,” sin­gle dad Tarek tells Life & Style of his chil­dren, Tay­lor and Bray­den, with Christina. “Not the TV show, not the busi­ness, noth­ing.”
