“I’m so not [a bridezilla]. I feel like I’m a dude,” she told PEOPLE Friday. “I just want to show up. I have Lee Press-On Nails. I’m not that kind of girl. I don’t care, as long as the heart is in the ceremony, that’s all that matters to me. I could get married in a Kentucky Fried Chicken.”
Though the wedding is “soon,” McCarthy, 41, put the planning on hold Friday as she hung out at Palazzo Las Vegas’s Azure Pool. With temperatures topping 100 degrees, McCarthy relaxed in a VIP bungalow with friends. After about 30 minutes, Wahlberg, incognito in a fedora, arrived prompting the couple to share a deep kiss.
