Look who’s getting the gang back together!
Cue Frank Sinatra’s Love and Marriage, for the cast of Married… With Children reunited this week to honor everyone’s favorite hardcore mom, Katey Sagal. TV’s most dysfunctional family was front and center when the Sons of Anarchy actress received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. Sons actor Charlie Hunnum was also on hands to celebrate.
Al (Ed O’Neill) Peg (Sagal), Kelly (Christina Applegate) and Bud (David Faustino) say they’re still close after all these years, and after listening to their remarks, wethinks there may just be a reunion of sorts in the works. Pretty much because Applegate almost completely spilled every single one of the beans.
Sagal told E! News that a reunion has been on the brain since the iconic Fox show that ran for 11 seasons signed off in 1997.
“We’ve talked about it every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens,” she revealed. “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”
For her part, Applegate isn’t too thrilled about reliving the glory days. …Full Story
Liv Tyler’s large yet snug overalls have quite the tale to tell: There’s no more hiding it, try as she may. The Leftovers actress is expecting her second child, E! News reports. Tyler is mom to 9-year-old son Milo William Langdon with ex-husband Royston Langdon.
While Tyler’s rep is staying mum, E! confirmed the news with multiple sources the same day the 37-year-old Armageddon actress stepped out in New York sporting a sizable baby bump that even overalls and a jacket couldn’t conceal.
So who’s the lucky guy? Why David Beckham’s good friend Dave Gardner. On Tuesday, Tyler dined with co-star Justin Theroux and Beckham at Il Buco in NYC. Open leaving, she hid the baby proof with a long cream coat.
The couple were set up by mutual supermodel friend Kate Moss.
“They get on very well and are really enjoying spending time together,” an insider revealed. “He flies to New York mostly to see her and they feel very comfortable together. He is very charismatic and a real gentleman and she appreciates that about him.”
Gardner has two kids with his ex, English actress Davinia Taylor. They were married for seven years and split in 2010. Upgrade!Full Story
Sara Gilbert is with child!
The Talk co-host announced on her show Tuesday that she’s pregnant. And it sort of seemed staged until her fellow flappers of jaw absolutely lost it.
Here’s how it all went down: During a segment of the show, Gilbert said she couldn’t take part in a dare in which she would have had to lie down on a bed of nails and have a concrete block broken on her stomach.
“I really do believe in facing your fears and doing things that make you uncomfortable, but I actually can’t do the dare because I’m pregnant,” Gilbert revealed.
Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood acted like the human race’s survival depended on this unborn child and flipped out, even picking Gilbert up by her torso, which also seems less than safe.
This will be the Roseanne alum’s first baby with musician wife Linda Perry. She has two kids with her ex, TV producer Allison Adler. Gilbert, 39, married Perry, 49, in March after three years of dating.Full Story
For a second there, we really thought Mel Brooks had 11 fingers all this time and we just didn’t know. That’s how realistic the enhancement on his left hand looked when he left his mark in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Monday.
“I wanted to do something just a little different. I didn’t know what,” the multihyphenate told Conan O’Brien later that day. “So — I got another finger.”
O’Brien couldn’t help but cackle. “Look at that! That is so realistic! That’s fantastic!”
When Brooks arrived in 1950s Hollywood, he checked out all the handprints and footprints outside the Chinese Theatre. “I saw all these, you know, Carole Lombard and George Raft and Clark Gable and you know, Vivian Blaine — I don’t know what she was doing … anyway there was a lot of people there. And I was thrilled. And today … today I was honored, literally, honored by the Chinese Theatre asking me to put my hands and feet, my name and date, in cement alongside all these great stars. Legends,” he continued. “And I am now part of it.”
The ceremony was planned to coincide with Tuesday’s 40th-anniversary release of Young Frankenstein on Blu-ray. …Full Story
Why do they encourage her?
Watch out, world. Miley Cyrus has unleashed her very own handmade accessories, and poof, now she’s a designer — a designer at New York Fashion Week. #unfair
Cyrus debuted her collection of neon jewelry crafted from children’s alphabet beads, what appear to be toys from one of those coin-operated dispensers you find at Countryside Lanes, and other horribly tacky items that, quite frankly, hurt our eyes so deeply our brain will probably hurt for days.
These, um, creations, were integrated into Jeremy Scott’s show on Wednesday in downtown Manhattan.
“We live really close to each other in L.A, and she had a little party and I came over,” Scott told the Associated Press. “And she started showing me these things she was making, and I said 'Wow, this kind of looks like my collection — it’s colorful and stream-of-consciousness and everything just kind of goes and somehow works. I was like, 'Oh my god this looks so cool, would you think about doing something?’ And she said absolutely. And then the next day I sent her a text and said I was dead serious about the jewelry for the show, if you’re into it. And she was like, 'I thought you were joking, I’m so happy!’ … She made everything herself.” …Full Story
Jazz hands at the ready, errbody. It’s time to burst into song and dance, for High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale just got married. The Disney star secretly wed fiance Christopher French on Monday, confirming the news on social media.
“Best night of my life!” Tisdale captioned an Instagram of the newlyweds. “Introducing Mr and Mrs French Sept 8, 2014.”
The affair was so clandestine, no one seems to know where the ceremony went down, but the reception looked lovely. One big detail we do know: Best friend forever and HSM co-star Vanessa Hudgens was one of Tisdale’s bridesmaids.
The 29-year-old actress and her musician beau got engaged a little over a year ago on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building. “Best night of my life,” Tisdale tweeted back then. “We’re on top of the world.” French sealed the deal with a gorgeous cushion-cut diamond ring in a double-halo setting.
“I think from the moment that him and I met, I just knew it,” Tisdale bragged in an interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest in December. “I was like, 'Okay this is the guy,’ and he knew the same thing. It doesn’t get any better. I just can’t explain it.”
This is the first marriage for both.Full Story
She’s the lady in red when everyone else is wearing tan.
No, seriously. When Fran Drescher married inventor-entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai on Sunday, she was glowing in a red Badgley Mischka gown.
“Surprise!!!!! We got married!” The Nanny star tweeted Sunday along with a photo of herself and her MIT lecturer husband. “I married my warrior princess @frandrescher who my mom in God’s great Heaven sent,” Ayyadurai tweeted. “Be The Light - Know the Truth - Find Your Way.”
The Bombay-born Ayyadurai, 50, who is widely credited for inventing email in his teens, wore a Ralph Lauren suit, according to People.
The 56-year-old bombshell, who we’d kill to look like at age not-quite-30, played the tight dress-loving nanny on the CBS sitcom. Her on-screen husband, Charles Shaugnessey, was in attendance at the couple’s beachfront home.
“The secret’s out! Congratulations to my darling @frandrescher and @va_shiva May you enjoy this lifetime and many more,” he tweeted along with a photo of himself with the bride, who was wearing a bindi in keeping with Hindu tradition.
The couple met a year ago when Ayyadurai spoke at an event hosted by Deepak Chopra, according to the Huffington Post. …Full Story
Not to be outdone by the Tisdales and Dreschers of the world, a bikini-clad Beyonce decided to headline wedding weekend when she crashed a young couple’s nuptials while on vacation in Portofino, Italy, on Saturday. We hope the invites said casual.
The Flawless singer posed for photos with the flower-crowned bride, who we must say looked outstanding. Seriously, is that Kate Middleton? Sheesh.
Okay, back to the Flash-Tattooed Queen Bey. (Won’t those things give her gnarly tan lines? Just asking.) She and husband Jay Z are in Italy to celebrate Yonce’s 33rd birthday and to enjoy a little R&R before their Paris On the Run tour dates later this month. They brought along daughter Blue Ivy, 2, and their moms Gloria Carter and Tina Knowles. Presh.Full Story
Joan Rivers -- trailblazing comedian, fashion icon, lover of controversy and incomparably vibrant star -- died today at age 81.
The Fashion Police host was undergoing outpatient throat surgery in New York last Thursday when she suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest. She was rushed to Manhattan’s Mt. Sinai Hospital, where she spent a week "resting comfortably" on life support.
"It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers," Melissa Rivers said in a written statement today. "She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother."
Melissa Rivers added that she and her son, Cooper, who is Joan Rivers' grandson, "have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon." …Full Story
NBC has released its first photo of Allison Williams as Peter Pan, and it’s eerily similar to the Instagram she shared of her pint-sized self dressed up as the pea-green boy who won’t grow up, which, on the day her casting was announced, she captioned, “I’ve been rehearsing for a VERY long time.”
On the Today show Wednesday, the Girls actress and daughter of Nightly News anchor Brian Williams said she’s fully committed to playing the part, so much so that she was willing to chop off her locks.
“I sort of very tentatively offered to cut my hair. I was like, 'You know, if it’s a thing that would help I could cut my hair,’ and they were like, 'You’re welcome to do that, we’re still gonna put you in a wig.’ ”
Peter Pan Live! executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have naturally called Williams a “major find” for their newest live special.
“She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities,” they said.
The musical will air on Dec. 4.Full Story
We can always count on Justin Bieber when Celebrityland is giving us the ZZZs.
The Canadian pop star has been charged with dangerous driving and assault following an accident involving a minivan and an ATV that led to fisticuffs with a photographer, his lawyer told the Associated Press on Tuesday. Sounds like somebody has a case of the Tough Guys.
Ontario police said Bieber, who was driving the ATV, and a passenger in the minivan “engaged in a physical altercation” Friday afternoon near The Maple One’s hometown.
“Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi,” Brian Greenspan, Bieber’s Toronto lawyer — not to be confused with his Miami or L.A. lawyers — said Tuesday. “This has regrettably resulted in charges of dangerous driving and assault.”
Just a few days before the ATV incident, Bieber’s car was rear-ended by a paparazzo in Hollywood.
“There should be laws against what I just experienced,” the 20-year-old tweeted afterward. “We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana…” …Full Story
Wondering what Angelina Jolie wore when she married Brad Pitt at their Château Miraval wedding last week?
On Monday, People and Hello magazines unveiled a peek at their upcoming Joliecentric covers, which feature the bride and her astonishingly drab-from-the-front Donatella Versace gown. The couple’s brood took care of the blah factor all over the back, though, as master tailor Luigi Massi sewed dozens of the Jolie-Pitt kids’ scribbles onto the silk train and veil.
“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” Jolie told People. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”Full Story
Carrie Underwood might want to retire that new motorcycle for a few months. The country singer and her hockey star husband Mike Fisher are expecting their first child.
The 31-year-old American Idol alum tweeted the news with a little help from her dogs.
“In honor of 'Labor’ Day...Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier!” she wrote. With the post: a photo of her pups wearing shirts that say they’re going to be big brother and big sister.
(Side note — we sure hope the Mama’s Song singer doesn’t think dogs are anything like human babies, because that’s major pet peeve territory she’d be entering.)
“We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher,” tweeted Fisher, 34, because the world obviously needs one more weird celebrity baby name.
Underwood is due in the spring.Full Story
Newlyweds on the Block!
Donnie Wahlberg’s Favorite Girl is now his only girl after he Singled Out and locked down Jenny McCarthy in a Chicago-area wedding ceremony on Sunday.
The couple said their I do’s at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Ill., ABC News reports. The Blue Bloods actor, who still tours with New Kids on the Block, proposed to the former View co-host in April with a 10-carat yellow sapphire ring and the help of her son Evan.
“Of course, I said, 'Yes,’” McCarthy said of the proposal a few days later on the daytime talk show that couldn’t wait to get rid of her.
We don’t have many deets about the wedding, but what we can tell you is that McCarthy was basically sent from heaven to grace our eyeballs with her red lips, blonde, Hollywood-glamour hair and bombshell figure that poured out of a plunging sweetheart neckline, nearly mimicking that famous Jayne Mansfield almost-wardrobe-malfunction moment that fortunately was captured in time.
Check out the look in the video above.
This is the second marriage for both Wahlberg, 45, and McCarthy, 41.Full Story
Ashlee and Evan at their extremely fluffy engagement party.
Just two months after sister Jessica Simpson married former NFL star Eric Johnson, Ashlee Simpson also took the plunge, exchanging vows with fiancee Evan Ross at his mother’s Connecticut estate.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay actor’s mom would be none other than megastar Diana Ross, by the way. #nobigdeal.
According to People, the Supremes singer not only planned the wedding but also performed Endless Love at the event, because diva!
Former pop star Simpson walked down the aisle with 5-year-old son Bronx, and her Weight Watchers spokeswoman sister and matron of honor lent daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 14 months, to serve as flower girl and ring bearer.
The rained-on affair had a mix-and-match Bohemian theme, complete with dream catchers, so we naturally assume it also reeked of nag champa. The second-time bride wore a pearl-embellished long-sleeved gown and a mere $750,000-worth of Neil Lane diamonds and rubies to complement her engagement ring, also designed by the jeweler. For his Dolce and Gabbana tux, the groom stuck with his favorite fabric: velvet, with a white silk trim.
Simpson was previously married to Bronx’s father, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.Full Story
