NEWS: Y&R Wedding, Peggy Mitchell, Judith Light, Mark Deklin

An homage to the '50s -- Victoria is a fan of FATHER KNOWS BEST -- the wedding was shot on the front lawn of the house where LEAVE IT TO BEAVER used to film, Victoria's dress is a replica of one worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1957's 'Funny Face,' and the couple are married by a Judge Anderson, played by none other than Elinor Donahue, best known as Betty Anderson on FATHER KNOWS BEST. "I think it's adorable, I really do," Elinor told ET. "I think it's extremely well written and not overdone."

  1. It may be the EP or Head Writer's favorite show, but there is no way FATHER KNOWS BEST would be Victoria's favorite. She's about 20 years too young and is it ever even shown in reruns, anymore?? ROSEANNE would have been a more inspired choice.

  2. Was there something about Judith Light in this post?
