“The Bachelor” Sean Lowe and his fiancée Catherine Giudici have announced they are planning a TV wedding — and it could be in the Coachella Valley.
“Sean is planning on spending $1 million dollars on his Palms Springs [SIC] wedding to his secret Bachelor fiancée and it will be ‘more romantic’ and ‘more special’ than any other wedding,” Hollywood Life wrote.
Lowe would be the first Bachelor ever to walk down the aisle with his winner. He is now competing on “Dancing with the Stars” with pro Peta Murgatroyd.

If the couple makes it to “I do,” Life and Style magazine claims the wedding could be at Miramonte Resort and Spa in Indian Wells (see picture to the right).
That’s not far from where “The Bachelorette” Trista Sutter married her winner, Ryan, in what’s considered the franchise’s most successful relationship.
Their reported $4 million TV wedding took place in 2003 at The Lodge in Rancho Mirage (now the Ritz Carlton).
In related rumors, there was this “burning question” from In Touch Weekly:
“Did Sean Sneak Away to Palm Springs With His Fiancée?” In Touch Weekly asked. The answer:
YES! “They met there for a romantic rendezvous on Feb. 23,” says an insider. “They stayed at a private house so no one could find them.”
“Who’s the Boss?” child star Danny Pintauro’s boyfriend popped the question during a trip to Palm Springs this week, Us Weekly reported Friday.
The couple got engaged over dinner on Wednesday night.
“He made a video, and in the video held up the box [with the ring],” the magazine quotes Pintauro as saying. “I looked up and he had it in his hand!”
Wil Tabares posted a photo from the dinner table after his proposal.
Jonathan Bower — er, Pintauro and his fiance live in Las Vegas and plan to move to California “once Prop 8 is overturned.”
“Who’s the Boss” ran from September 1984 until April 1992.
It isn’t exactly the bat cave, but a home once owned by ’60′s-era Batman Adam West is on the market in Palm Springs for $1.5 million — a bargain for anyone who aspires to live like a superhero (or an actor who once played a superhero on TV).
The 3,189-square-foot home is a modernist’s dream. Built in 1954, the house is situated in Palm Springs’ Old Las Palmas neighborhood, tucked into a mature stand of palm trees and sited next to a spacious kidney-shaped pool flanked by a flagstone patio. The structure features three bedrooms, five baths and floor-to-ceiling walls of windows serving up desert and mountain views.
Per Realtor.com, the home was renovated in 1984 under the direction of modernist Albert Frey and also features a fountain, a master bath with matching marble tubs and a two-car garage.
Not to mention the satisfaction that will come from knowing you’re laying your head in the very spot where Batman once laid down his own masked noggin. West, by the way, received a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in 2010.
Alas, the house does not include a faithful manservant who will also lay down his life to protect your secret identity.

If you love celebrity golf, and who in the desert doesn’t, this is the weekend for you.
Two large celebrity events are being played on the same weekend. The first is the Frank Sinatra Starkey Hearing Aid tournament at Eagle Falls Golf Club at Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio. That tournament raises money for the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center at Eisenhower Medical Center. Golf will be played today and tomorrow, with parties tonight and a gala tomorrow.
The other event is the newest and one of the strongest events, the Partrick Warburton Golf for Kids tournament benefitting St. Jude’s Children hospital. There is a pairing party today and golf Saturday and Sunday at Classic Club in Palm Desert. There is also a jam session that looks like a winner, with people like Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chain and Robbie Krieger from The Doors and Alica Cooper and Tommy Thayer from KISS at the event.
It’s easy to ask when two such celebrity tournaments, each for the benefit of children in some way, are being played on the same weekend. It’s more than possible that they have kind of split up the potential celebrity field and the potential galleries.
But if there is an area that can handle bother events, I would guess it is the desert. So many hit the Sinatra event Saturday and the Warburton event Sunday and do a little daytime stargazing.
