Big Rich Texas star Leslie Birkland has big plans for her upcoming wedding to beau Rip Mason -- but it might take a bit of arm-twisting.

Birkland’s dream, it turns out, is to get married off-ground.

“The issue is that I have to convince my guy Rip to get married on an airplane,” the TV star told Celebuzz last week.

“We’ll just circle like four states and then we can say we got married in four states at one time, and then we’ll land and just have a wonderful reception.”

Birkland, who became engaged on Nov. 21, said that in planning her wedding so far, she’s far from being a bridezilla.

“I am very conservative, other than the plane and four state thing,” she joked.

Birkland, a former beauty pageant contestant and current pageant coach, also had a few words for advice for America’s most talked about pageant contestant these days: Honey Boo Boo.

“She’s definitely a natural, so she needs to go to the natural pageant, the ones where it just shows a lot of personality,” she said.

“Honey Boo Boo is having a blast. She’s having a good time, she’s actually how pageant girls should be . . . she’s just being herself, she’s not shy, she can talk in front of people, in front of the cameras. So I love what Honey Boo Boo’s doing.”

Big Rich Texas airs Sundays at 8PM ET on Style.

    I loathe Leslie and I hope her 100 year old fiancee dumps her.

    I think Leslie is great. She is the only reason I watch the show. The other women are just catty backstabberrs, especially Bonnie - she always plays the victim when she starts most of the gossip. I expect Leslie won't be on the show long as I can't see her putting up with that crap for very long. I am amazed she has this long, so she must be in contract.
