For weeks, both either denied it was going to happen or ignored the question all together but according to many sources singer Christina Milian has wedded songwriter and singer The-Dream. The dream place? Las Vegas. The blissful time? During Labor Day Weekend. The likelihood that this union will last longer than the time it will take for us to bring out our white garb again? Doubtful.
There is always something rather foreboding when celebrity couples just on a whim up and do the deed. There is something to be said about taking your time not to only get to know someone but to include all of your loved ones in the festivities when you do decide to wed.
Celebs can tout over and over again the virtues of wedding under these shot-gun-esque methods to get away from the peering eyes of the paparazzi but everyone knows you can avert the media thunderstorm in other ways as well. Vegas weddings just always seem so doomed!
Reportedly, the pair will re-wed in Milan soon and may even have a third ceremony for those who were unable to attend the first two.
File under: Overkill? Noooooo! Not at all!

Now, I know many wouldn’t have a clue who he is but my gays surely remember American Idol first season contestant Jim Verraros.
Sure, it has nothing to do with his stint on AI and has everything to do with the fact that the out-and-proud and once-portly contestant lost tons of weight and parlayed a career in gay cinema by starring in part of the cult-following-ish Eating Out indie flix series.
Well, Verraros is set to marry his partner of almost four years, Bill Brennan. The couple met on of all places Myspace and have been inseparable since. There seems to be a huge age difference between the pair, not to mention some interesting photos of really nice property amid lavish acreage they probably share. Wonder who is pulling in the dollars? Could it be the B-list, psedu-celeb with an indie-flick under his belt? Or the older gentleman caller with the frosted tips and greying roots? Hmmm… I am kidding. No speculations here. I am happy for the… gold-digger and the hare… I mean couple. I kid, I kid.
File under: Their wedding website is really looking like a Star Jones wedding blitz mishap.

As expected, fans were out in drones during the first day of shooting for the sequel of Sex and the City. While they filmed on the Upper East Side a single scene of Sarah Jessica Parker hailing a cab, the fans couldn’t get enough, lagging around for hours. When shooting was over, the potential of hounding wasn’t over but with SJP’s security in tow there’s no getting close to her. Ostensibly, she told them to be “nice” to the oglers.
Having seen the series shot many times in and around the city, I remember fans hanging around then too but it was much more subdued so much so that you could even hear shady whispers from production as they complained that SJP “takes way too long to get ready.” Oh, the good days!
What’s weird? What’s the hubbub all about really? SJP can be seen walking the streets of NYC (without security I might add) on many given days. I have had several run-ins with her. One of which where she stood literally two feet away from me, in front of my building, juggling a Blackberry, another phone, and a Daffy’s bag. Only SJP could look F-I-E-R-C-E with a Daffy’s bag!
File under: And, yep, everyone is also trying to find out the details of the script as speculations are abound why Carrie does not wear her wedding ring in some scenes shot.

Though it very well should be a little too late to be seeking sympathy from the masses, Jon Gosselin of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus Eight— who has been TOOLing it up everywhere these days — wants it, wants it bad. And he’s not afraid to boo-hoo his way further into tool-dom to get it either.
He will be appearing on ABC’s Primetime September 8th where he too will detail the reasons for the demise of his 10 year relationship to Kate Gosselin. (Kate previously appeared on the Today Show with her side of things.)
He says that he was taking “a lot of abuse” from Kate and complains extensively that while she was out promoting her book and the show (that they both share the bill on mind you) poor little A+-for-no-effort father was at home taking care of the kids. Boo hoo.
He also talks about the manly man incident when the cops were called to their Pennsylvania home. Apparently, he wouldn’t let Kate in the gate because he wanted to ostensibly spend more time with his kids. The cops were called and Jon gloats that Kate’s waterworks didn’t well…work and she had to leave.
File under: Can this guy get any more annoying? Um, I guess. One more Ed Hardy ill-fitting shirt or psedu-celeb trip to Vegas or torrid story of him using his fame from a show about him and his 8 kids to get chicks and I think I will just barf. Why would any woman give this man the time of day!

Entertainment Tonight’s website reports Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted in Manhattan, ostensibly shooting the sequel to Sex and the City.
With an expected release of May 2010, I know there is going to be another storm of fans camping out to get glimpses of their getting-up-there idols; rabid media outlets trying to get scene details; spoiler-alerts abound; and two and three versions taped to avert the peering/prying eyes.
While the ever-elusive other character in the series is New York, it does seem to offer all types of unforeseen issues. It’s all still great publicity for a franchise that seems to have no impending end though.
File under: I am so full of excitement. I just can’t wait to see this on… DVD.

Now, I have no love for any of the parties involved in this crazy story but to hit a lady? That’s pretty low even for you, Joe Francis!
TMZ reports that Brody Jenner’s wasp-stung lips girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, may be nursing fatter lips after last night’s rumble at an LA nightclub. Seems Girls Gone Wild creator Francis was hitting “relentlessly” on a mutual friend of Jenner and Nicole’s and when Nicole thought it was a bit too much, she threw a drink on him.
How does the gallant Francis react? Well, according to Jenner he pulls Nicole’s hair, punches her in the face, and then in a last ditch effort of chivalry, throws her to the ground to only pummel her with kicks.
When both Jenner and Francis were removed from the club, Jenner goes after Francis and punches him in the face. To add insult to pretty messy injury, Jenner then gets tasered from “someone” (hopefully, a law enforcer and not some random person with a taser gun; who randomly has a taser gun).
Jayde says she will press charges!

I know, I know, everyone has been saying it for so long but I am truly TRULY truly so sick and tired of these “clandestine” tapes, photos, and other tawdry/raunchy paraphernalia of our beloved celebs (many pseduo-) making their way to the insatiable viewing masses. With Lindsey Lohan recently a “victim”,Vanessa Hudgens at it again showcasing the lady bits, and Twilight star Ashley Green now in the nudie spotlight, you got to wonder how some of these celebs can tie their shoelaces much less remember their lines! Just plain carelessness — especially since there are so many glowing examples of why they shouldn’t even partake in these sort of festivities.
Has anyone noticed that these said “leaks” have been rampant and concentrated after the sudden rise into infamy of those like Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton? Has anyone noticed that it is miraculously happening to celebs as they either mount their cusp of fame or, more importantly, as they plummet their way down?
Honestly, I believe for many of them, they for sure have a hand in some of it — either by leaking it themselves or making it too easy for someone to pilfer. If not, this stuff would be in vaults/safes/in the pouch of some trust-worthy marsupial. I don’t know. Just a mess and G-R-A-T-U-I-T-O-U-S!
