Between a messy separation and a police rap, who can relax and enjoy a lavish wedding? Al and Tipper Gore have announced that they won’t be attending Chelsea Clinton’s wedding in Rhinebeck, New York, this month, perhaps to spare the former first family the distraction on its special day. “They both wish Chelsea well, believe she is a wonderful young woman, and they share in the family’s excitement,” the family’s spokesperson said in a statement. The wedding’s guest list tops out at a relatively tiny 400, and—for all their well wishes—it hasn’t been confirmed that the Gores were actually invited. When the spokesperson was asked if they made the cut, she replied “no comment.” In December, Gore told The Daily Beast's Lloyd Grove that he was " looking forward to Chelsea's wedding."
