If you've been keeping up with La Toya Jackson, then you know that the singer finally announced last month that she and her beau Jeffré Phillips were engaged. But if you want the real skinny on what is going on behind the scenes with the couple and their wedding arrangements, then you'll definitely want to check out the next episode of Life With La Toya.

Jackson was excited to share her wonderful news, but she wasn't above having a little bit of fun with her friends first. "I want to share the news with her and tell her that I'm highly engaged and I'm really excited about it. But before I do that, I kind of throw a little left-ball to her. I try to make her believe that it's somebody totally different than Jeffré, and she falls for it," Jackson said about her practical joke.

Jackson's friends decide to get her back though with an impromptu search for the perfect wedding gown. "You'll also see, once the girls know, [once] they find out that this is solid and this is what I want, they start rushing me and pushing me into going to look at dresses," Jackson shared, adding that there are also a few things viewers won't see in the episode.

"What you don't see, on this episode, is that I didn't want to try on the dresses," Jackson said. "There was no way I was going to get in a dress, for many reasons. But what I did do is I had one of my friends [try] on the dresses for me and she looked fabulous in them."

More wedding planning took place with her fiancé. "I also went and looked for locations with Jeffré at the St. Regis hotel," Jackson said. "We thought this would be a beautiful and nice place to go, but I wasn't that keen on it."

Again, there was more to the story than what viewers will see in the episode. "It looked really beautiful, but what you didn't know is that, after I got there, I kind of changed my mind a little bit. So Jeffré and I, we had quite a bit of an extensive conversation because I was kind of backing out of things."
