Jay Leno...puts damper on Royal Wedding plans! You go, girl! Leslie Mann's perky appeal!

Leslie Mann - high on her recent acting stint (a voice-over gig) on the just-released comedy flick - RIO - trotted out from behind the curtain at NBC last night and plunked herself down in the comfy armchair next to talk-show host Jay Leno.

But, a short way into the effervescent interview, Leno put an obvious damper on Ms. Mann's upcoming plans to jet across the big pond to jolly old England to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

"You're invited to the wedding," Leno quizzed the perky beauty, with a touch of envy in his voice.

At this point, Mann's face clouded over a tad - as she hesitated a sec - and stumbled for the words to respond.

"No," she finally fessed up.

At this point, Leno probed a little further in a sly effort to to rustle up the specifics.

Apparently, Mann is heading off to London with the kids and mother in tow, to take up a humble perch in the bustling city streets where the motorcade was expected to purr by.

Jay shook his head in disbelief.

In so many words, he appeared to be saying, that's no good!

Now, the poor little bodacious babe is in a quandary about what to do, given the fact Leno has apparently pooh-poohed the notion.

Frankly, I was surprised about the talk-show host's ignorance, with regard to such matters.

When I was a kid, I distinctly recall my mother dragging me off to catch a glimpse of Queen Elizabeth II, when she cruised by in her stately Rolls Royce along a carefully laid out route in the downtown streets of Toronto.

In fact, thousands of Brits - tourists and lookie loo's too - are expected to do the same when the handsome Royal couple drive by all kissey-face after tying-the knot at Westminster Abbey!

Gosh, I'd follow suit - and wear my Sunday-best even - if I could afford the air-fare and cost of a hotel suite.

Maybe there's a news agency out there willing to spring for my trip - in exchange for some lively reporting on the spot - in the midst of the adoring teaming masses expected to turn-out at the Royal event of the century on April 29th?

Leslie, you go girl!

Royal Watchers have eye-out for Fairy-tale Coach!
