CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP - 'Bristol & Willow Palin / Joan & Melissa Rivers' - Bristol and Willow Palin reside in Wasilla, Alaska with Bristol's four-year-old son, Tripp, who rules the roost. What Tripp says goes in the Palin household. When Melissa Rivers arrives in Wasilla, she's surprised to see snow on the ground - in May! Meeting Willow and Tripp, Melissa finds it a challenge to deal with Tripp's boyish exuberance, and feels that he needs to have a set daily routine. Aunt Willow is no help when it comes to discipline, and in fact is often the instigator behind Bristol's back. But Melissa is determined to bring structure to the Palin home, so when it's time for the rules change, she immediately initiates a new sticker chart reward system for Tripp. She also applies rules changes to Willow, helping Willow to get one step closer to following her passion in a career.

NEWS: Sarah Palin Reacts to Dog Abuse Claims

"Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway – and the Palins and Meyers are happily looking forward to still being at 'the old Kentucky home' on May 23 to celebrate life, in general!" Sarah continued. "Family members and close friends know they are welcome to share a great bar-b-que on the farm that day. All involved, especially Dakota, Bristol and Tripp, and their parents and grandparents, thank supporters for the love they've expressed."

Sarah also further addressed the tabloid reports with words from her daughter.

"Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about 'secret wives', Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers," Bristol said. "As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected at this time by those with decency."

Bristol ended her message with a thank you, but speculation still continues as to if this wedding will be rescheduled! On Saturday, Bristol posted a picture without her engagement ring.
