12/09/2010: Joanna and Nick will be tying the knot this weekend in Palm Beach. While several Yankees are scheduled to be in attendance, there will definitely be more interesting and random guests attending. Jamie Lynn Sigler will be in attendance on Joanna’s side of the ceremony, while former boy-bander Lance Bass will not only be at the wedding, but will also be standing with Nick as one of his groomsmen.
Yes, that Lance Bass.
No, we’re not kidding.
