(Newser) – Here's one person definitely not excited about rumors that Chelsea Clinton will be getting married July 31 in Rhinebeck, NY: Emn Haddad-Friedman, who just happens to be getting married July 31 in Rhinebeck, NY. “I know she’s not doing it on purpose,” she tells Yahoo's Shine blog. “But Chelsea Clinton has taken what was supposed to be a special day for me turned it into hell.”

She's not whining about being overshadowed. This is about the logistical nightmare of competing with a Clinton wedding whose rumored location is smack dab between Haddad-Friedman's ceremony and reception. “If Chelsea’s wedding does happen, they’ll probably close all the roads and my guests will have to drive for an hour and a half to get from my ceremony to the reception, if they get there at all.” Still, feelings aren't that bruised. At the end of the interview, she issued a formal invitation to the Clinton family.
