Rita Wilson opened her residency at Café Carlyle in New York on Tuesday night to a full room, at the front of which sat her biggest fan: husband Tom Hanks. Wilson referenced the beaming Hanks several times between songs, telling the audience that before she met her husband of nearly 28 years, "I never thought I would fall in love."
Hanks slipped into his seat in the crowded dining room after the lights dimmed, nabbing a prime spot next to Gayle King of CBS This Morning, who had showed up much earlier and kept checking the entrance as she waited for her famous companion (many others in the room were waiting to see if he would be there as well).
In her set, Wilson showed off some new songs from her self-titled album that comes out March 11, as well as older ones from her 2012 debut AM/FM. She mixed in a few fun covers as well, including The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face," which she insinuated was an appropriate anthem in this era of rampant plastic surgery.
