If anything is reason to celebrate with friends and family at a sprawling, secluded and exclusive Secret Garden (really, that’s what it’s called), it’s filling out government paperwork that says your partner owns your freedom until they’re willing to fork it back over to you.
Such was the case this holiday weekend when Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis gloated about their nuptials in front of an intimate group of loved ones at the Secret Garden at Parrish Ranch in Oak Glen, Calif.
“They’re so happy,” a source told People. “They’re so in love.”
So the former That ’70s Show co-stars threw their mutual admiration in everyone’s face at the gated venue reserved for exclusive weddings and private events. At least the party sounded rather lovely: There were outdoor activities among the apple orchards, ponds and botanical gardens, and rows of tents that served as a luxe campground for guests.
Oh, and wife and 9-month-old daughter Wyatt wore white, in case you needed to know. …Full Story
Another day, another highly publicized breakup for Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick. The reality stars are on the outs yet again after Disick was spotted snuggling with his ex, Chloe Bartoli, in Monaco last week.
“They were all over each other and so blatant,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly. “They were feeding each other with their own forks. She was nuzzling her head on his shoulder, and he was stroking her arm and thighs.”
The source added that Disick, who completed a brief rehab stint in March, was a “drunken mess.”
Even more anonymous blabs told TMZ that Disick hasn’t been to the couple’s Calabasas home in over a month and that “his partying lately has made her make this tough decision.”
Disick, who dated Bartoli briefly in 2006 during a break from the eldest KK monster — We mean sister. Sister is what we mean. — shares kids Mason, 5, Penelope, 2, and Reign, 6 months, with Kardashian.Full Story
Billy Joel locked down an Uptown Girl in a surprise wedding ceremony on the Fourth of July. The 66-year-old singer wed Alexis Roderick, 33, an "accomplished equestrian" and former Morgan Stanley exec.
The couple “surprised guests at their annual July 4th party by exchanging vows in front of their family and close friends,” Joel’s rep told People.
The intimate, hush-hush wedding was held at Joel’s Long Island estate. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo presided, and guests included Joel’s daughter, singer/songwriter Alexa Ray, and actor Kevin James. Random.
The Piano Man and Roderick have been together since 2009 and are expecting their first Baby Grand this summer.Full Story
She went and Saved the Best For Last -- maybe.
July 4 was the Sweetest of Days for newlyweds Vanessa Williams and Jim Skrip.
The couple said “I do” in New York on Saturd
ay, the Broadway star’s rep tells People. Williams, 52, met the former accountant in Egypt in 2013. “You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away,” the Ugly Betty alum told Philly.com last year. Skrip hails from Williams’ mother’s town of Buffalo, N.Y.
“You never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it,” Williams told Madame Noire. “I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for 10 years at that time.”
This is Williams’ third marriage. Here’s hoping she Saved the Best For Last.Full Story
He's the cool dad, you see.
The Lovers co-stars Josh Hartnett and Tamsin Egerton are taking their on-screen love affair to a whole new, real-life level.
The couple are expecting their first child together, Hartnett’s rep told E! News. The pair have kept their romance quiet since sparking romance rumors in 2012.
“I purposefully didn’t want people to know too much about my personal life because I think a lot of people give it away for free,” the Pearl Harbor star told USA Today in May. “I think if you spend too much time courting people’s attention into your personal life, you lose your ownership of it. That’s why I make sure my life is my own. I was not a dumb kid. I was a little bit wary of this business. I saw what it could do to people pretty quickly.”
He also was — we repeat, was — wary of dating his co-workers, especially following his failed relationship with The Black Dahlia co-star Scarlett Johansson.
“I don’t recommend it to young actors,” he told Elle magazine last year. “You can make a lot of enemies in the business that way. But when you work with somebody every day, it’s like trial dating. You develop a fantasy about them.”
His tune changed earlier this year, though. …Full Story
So we are like totally buggin'.
Why? Because Clueless the musical has been 100 percent confirmed by the film’s director Amy Heckering.
“I’ve written the, what they call the book, and it’s a jukebox musical,” Heckering told Entertainment Tonight.
Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) will direct and Dodger Theatricals (Jersey Boys, Into the Woods) will produce. So, who will star as Cher Horowitz, originally played by Alicia Silverstone, genius extraordinaire?
“That’s like going to be like the main problem,” Heckering said.
“Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death,” the director told Rolling Stone last year. “Maybe Iggy Azalea would do it” if Perry’s schedule were to get in the way.
No word yet on when we’ll once again be rollin’ with our homies, but Heckering isn’t about to get our hopes up.
“Everything goes so slowly,” she said, “and I go, 'Wow this takes a long time.’ I thought movies took a long time. It’s hard to know with Broadway when things will happen.”
There they are. Standing together.
ZOMG it’s Taylor Swift and other famous women all together in the same place at the same time we can’t even.
That is what Twitter did to me all weekend.
As you can see, the Blank Space singer has amassed her largest squad of female celebrities yet, and the Internet — as if it were my Irish terrier being reunited with his ball that for months had been lost under the couch — just. can’t. handle it.
Swift, who as part of her 1989 World Tour brings out a posse of noted, female Millenials during her performance of Style, paraded “gal pals” Martha Hunt, Kendall Jenner, Serena Williams, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevigne onstage at her London show in Hyde Park on Saturday.
But wait; lucky for you, there’s even more! Yes, Emma Watson is sipping Swift’s sweet, publicity-stunting Kool-Aid now, too. The Harry Potter alum posed in a group shot with Swift, Kloss, Hunt, and singers Lauren Aquilina and Sydney Sierota. Hadid later tweeted a backstage shot of the group captioned, “this is love. #1989TourLondon.”
See, everyone? See how supportive they are of one another? See? SEE!Full Story
It all looks so natural, Simon Brodkin interrupting a confued Kanye.
Kanye West declared himself “the greatest living rock star on the planet” at Britain’s Glastonbury festival on Saturday night, where he arrived with Kim Kardashian via helicopter. But that didn’t prevent a prankster from invading the rapper’s performance and upstaging him.
West’s headline set was briefly interrupted when comedian Lee Nelson stormed onto the stage, rapping along with the star. A security guard quickly bundled him offstage. Later, Nelson — whose real name is Simon Brodkin — tweeted: “Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.”
The prank amused many fans, who recalled how West crashed Taylor Swift’s 2009 acceptance speech at the Video Music Awards.
It wasn’t the only amusing thing about West’s set, which presented a problem for the BBC’s subtitles team because of his often expletive-laden lyrics. Many on Twitter shared the comic wordplay that appeared on their screens in place of offensive words — including one subtitle that simply read: “He raps.”Full Story
Finding Your Roots is going on haiatus after PBS determined that the Ben Affleck episode violated its standards.
According to the Associated Press, the show’s third season will be postponed and no decision will be made regarding a fourth season until the public television service decides the show has redeemed itself as far as editorial guidelines are concerned.
In case you missed it, Affleck requested that the show omit any reference to his slave-owning ancestors, and Finding Your Roots complied. Affleck’s great-great-great-grandfather owned 24 slaves, the AP reports.
Affleck’s request came to light when hacked Sony emails were published by WikiLeaks last spring.
“Here’s my dilemma,” wrote series host and executive producer Henry Louis Gates Jr., “confidentially, for the first time, one of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors — the fact that he owned slaves. Now, four or five of our guests this season descend from slave owners, including (documentary filmmaker) Ken Burns. We’ve never had anyone ever try to censor or edit what we found. He’s a megastar. What do we do?” …Full Story
“We got out after being held hostage for an hour thanks to these two guys,” Courtney Love captioned this snapshot. “I’m scared out of my wits. Mr. François Hollande president or libertine? I can’t believe this really just happened.”
Courtney Love was rescued by two Parisian motorcyclists on Thursday after striking taxi drivers smashed the car she was riding in.
“They’ve ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage,” Love tweeted while attempting to leave the Charles de Gaulle Airport. “They’re beating the cars with metal bats. This is France?? I’m safer in Baghdad,” she added.
Taxi drivers were protesting the presence of the low-cost UberPop service, which they say is threatening their livelihood, according to the Associated Press.
“Paid some guys on motorcycles to sneak us out,” Kurt Cobain’s widow tweeted. “Got chased by a mob of taxi drivers who threw rocks, passed two police and they did nothing.”
She later posted a selfie with her knights in shining motorcycle helmets.
“There are people who are willing to do anything to stop any competition,” said Thomas Meister, a spokesman for Uber. “We are only the symptom of a badly organized market.”
Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said he had ordered a ban on unlicensed services like UberPop in the Paris region. Uber, though, is still legal and claims to have 400,000 customers every month in France.Full Story
The lovebirds enter court on Thursday.
Dustin Diamond left a courtroom misty-eyed on Thursday after being sentenced to four months in jail for his part in a Wisconsin barroom stabbing.
According to the Associated press, the former Saved By the Bell star will also serve 15 months’ probation and must pay $1,000 restitution to “send a message to the community that we’re just not going to live like this,” Judge Paul Malloy said during the sentencing.
Diamond is due to surrender on Sunday.
The sentencing stems from a Christmas Day barroom brawl. The 38-year-old actor told police that he and his fiance, Amanda Schutz, were inside a bar when a group of drunk people became disorderly and rude. He said he turned to close his tab and grab their coats and turned back to see Schutz bleeding and being held by the hair by two men. Diamond said he moved toward Schutz when a man grabbed him, and he conceded he may have stabbed the man with a pen but later admitted to carrying a knife.
“Diamond stated that he did not intentionally stab the individual in the bar but that chaos broke out and people were grabbing at him and that he swung his arms to break free,” according to the police report. …Full Story

Rapper Rick Ross is accused of forcing a man into his mansion’s guesthouse and pistol-whipping him, chipping his teeth and busting his jaw so badly he can no longer chew.
According to the Associated Press, Ross was jailed without bail following his arrest by U.S. Marshals and sheriff’s deputies at his Atlanta-area home on Wednesday. Authorities were forced to open the estate’s gate after someone inside the home refused, but Ross eventually was taken from the home without incident.
The 39-year-old faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. Ross’s bodyguard, Nadrian James, 42, faces kidnapping and aggravated battery charges resulting from the same incident.
Ross and James are accused of forcing the unnamed man down a hall and into a bedroom in the guesthouse, where the man allegedly was hit repeatedly with a Glock handgun, which was also pointed at him.
“The victim was then questioned under duress and forced to answer questions at gunpoint,” an arrest warrant states. “The victim lost use of his jaw and is restricted to soft foods and liquid diet only as a result of not being able to chew food.”
No word on how the three are connected.Full Story

Shia LaBeouf received 20 stitches and 13 staples to his head and finger after injuring himself on the set of American Honey in North Dakota late Tuesday night.

Sources say LaBeouf was shooting a scene in which he was to put his head through a glass window. It all went horribly wrong, apparently.Full Story
