Crystal Bowersox Vows Not to Be a Bridezilla

“I’ve never really in my life had a great representation of what a good marriage is, ” the singer, 25, tells PEOPLE. “My parents divorced, and a lot of people in my family are divorced, so I hope to give my son a great model of what a happy marriage is or relationship could be.”

As for her wedding plans, Bowersox is no Bridezilla, and she’s not focusing on any detail in particular.

Bristol’s night out in Anchorage under investigation

We had a surprise visitor to our office on Tuesday: Investigator John F. Bilyeu of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. Seems there’s some concern circulating over Bristol Palin’s much-publicized visit to Rum Runners in Anchorage last week.

The problem? Rum Runners is a bar. Bristol’s 19. Alaska’s drinking age is 21.
