— A bit of Hollywood came to the area recently.

Susan Rodriguez and Eric Berman of Queens were married at an undisclosed Hague location Dec. 12 for the television program “Bridezillas.”

Producer Tim Jones said the episode of the show will run in March as part of the series’ new season, its 10th, on WE TV.

Details of the Hague wedding and reception held in Ticonderoga are being withheld until the program airs.

Rodriguez and Berman were married Dec. 12 because of the date — 12-12-12. It’s a day that comes around only once in a century and, according to thousands of brides and grooms, it was the perfect day to marry — even if it happened to be a Wednesday.

More than 7,500 brides and grooms nationwide tied the knot on Dec. 12.

“Bridezillas” is a reality television show produced by DCD Media-owned September Films and airing on the WE cable-television network. It follows the lives of women engaged to be married.

The word bridezilla is a portmanteau for a difficult bride, combined with the fictional rampaging beast Godzilla.

“Bridezillas” is the highest-rated original program on the WE Network.

In the first season, the majority of the subjects were young, white, spoiled, wealthy residents of New York. In subsequent seasons, the show has included a more diverse range of subjects, including older, African-American and working class couples; couples from California, Texas and Wisconsin.

While the first season was in production, the show was tentatively titled “Manhattan Brides.” It was only after taping was finished that the name was changed to “Bridezillas” and the footage was edited to emphasize the bad behavior of the subjects.

One bride, Julia Swinton-Williamson, sued the producers for misleading her about the show. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2008.
