Ryan Plans for More 'Shark', Upcoming WeddingBy Michelle

Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) is having a good month: her new TV show Shark has been picked up for the season, her wedding plans are moving forward and she is on the cover of the new issue of FHM.
Movieweb reported on the renewal order for Shark, which stars James Woods as an aggressive prosecutor working under the supervision of the L.A. district attorney played by Ryan.
The show is averaging 14.3 million viewers Thursday nights at 10 for CBS, making it the fall season's top new drama with strong showings in all adult demographics.
The UK's ContactMusic.com cites TV Guide as a source for a story about Ryan's plans to wed in the Loire Valley, saying that Ryan is "scoping out" venues to marry her French fiance Christopher Eme.
"[The ceremony] isn't as small as I thought it would be. We don't want a big American thing," she said. "It will be very French... The area is exquisite." It is not known whether Eme, a chef, and Ryan will do any of the cooking for their wedding; the pair jointly own the Hollywood restaurant Ortolan.
The end of Ryan's previous marriage to Illinois politician Jack Ryan is mentioned by the Sun Times in an article on Ryan's turn as a FHM cover girl, noting that media hype surrounding the unsealing of their divorce records caused Jack Ryan to end his bid for the U.S. Senate.
Inside the magazine, Ryan appears in sexy lingerie and says that her looks sometimes make people forget that she has a brain - she was a National Merit Scholar - but they have never helped her escape a speeding ticket. "This one cop in Chicago pulled me over and goes, 'Oh, God, this is so cool. I'm a big fan...I thought I was in the clear. But no - the cop gave me the damn ticket."
Ryan added that the French pay attention to the details of a woman's lingerie, unlike their counterparts: "The American man rips a woman's lingerie off too fast because he wants to get to the sex. Major difference - way less sexy."
