“Kelly’s wedding was simply beautiful. Her upbeat attitude and big heart make her so endearing”

Bravo for featuring singer Kelly Clarkson on your cover. Besides looking gorgeous in her wedding dress, she is a beautiful person inside and out. She’s a great role model for all ages. She truly is an American idol.

It’s so refreshing to see a celebrity not give in to the pressure of having an over-the-top wedding. It just shows that Kelly is a down-to-earth and realistic person. I hope she and her new husband, Brandon Blackstock, have a long and very happy life together.

Please stop writing about Kim Kardashian and her family. Her losing weight is not newsworthy. You need to focus on people who make a difference and not on those who seek fame.

The pictures of Kate Middleton’s midsection in your “Royals at Play” story were sexist and vapid. Yes, she has an amazingly flat stomach for someone who gave birth three months ago, but her trainer and chef should get a mention. Why make us feel bad about not bouncing back into shape when we struggle with full-time jobs and responsibilities that can’t be handed off to a staff of helpers? Stories like this contribute to the ongoing problem of eating disorders.

Thank you for naming The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun as the Sexy Man of the Week. It’s refreshing to see an Asian man be recognized in your magazine. I’m thrilled that he’s being noticed for his talent and good looks—things that I’ve known about for a long time!

Your article about former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress Tori Spelling and her financial problems made me laugh. Does she expect people to feel sorry that she hasn’t bought a purse in three years? She’s out of touch with reality. I hope her money woes will open her eyes.

Foster teen Davion Only, who gave an emotional appeal before a Florida congregation asking anyone to adopt him, is a remarkable young man. Many children could take a lesson from him. Davion’s dream to find a family for himself and for other foster kids is inspiring. I hope he finds his forever home with a family who loves him for the special person he is.

In the Janis Joplin story on page 74, the caption on the top left of the page was incorrectly dated 1968 instead of 1958. The page printed before we could fix the error. PEOPLE regrets the mistake.


Florida Bullying Case

Readers expressed empathy after reading our story on Florida mom Tricia Norman, whose 12-year-old daughter Rebecca Sedwick committed suicide after being bullied by fellow students. “My prayers go out to Tricia,” wrote Trish Oliva of Carlsbad, N.Mex. “I wish her strength and peace.” The two girls, ages 12 and 14, accused of bullying Sedwick pleaded not guilty to charges of felony aggravated stalking on Oct. 29. Attorney Jose Baez, who won an acquittal for Casey Anthony, announced a week earlier that he is representing the 12-year-old who has been charged. An arraignment hearing has been set for Nov. 21.
