Kristin Chenoweth Set for TLC's SAY YES TO THE DRESS Tonight
In the season premiere, Chenoweth's assistant and best friend, Julie, is shedding her simple classic style for her boss's style and looking for a short dress with glitz and glamour for her second wedding gown. But when dress one falls flat with the entire crowd, Kristin takes control and finds what she thinks is the perfect gown for Julie, even modeling the dress herself for the bride-to-be. Unfortunately Julie isn't sold on the dress and Kristin's left wondering if Julie will ever find a dress that's out of her comfort zone. In the end, consultant Debbie finds a gown with a little bling and a full skirt, but will Julie say yes to her Kristin style gown?
