Blake Lively isn’t spilling the deets to her big secret wedding to Ryan Reynolds. She went the classy route and didn’t sell her pics. Her team actually went after People magazine for saying that they were there. Blake’s rep said that People was not invited but some scummy photog managed to sneak a few shots of the wedding anyway.
But I like the way that Blake handled her wedding. She let Martha Stewart be in charge of it and those pics will come out in the December issue of the magazine. Much classy than selling to People. (“I shoulda thought of that!” –Drew Barrymore, Matthew McConaughey).
Well after the super secret wedding, they went on a small honeymoon in Little Washington, Virginia. Not for long though. Blakely is back to work already.
She returned to the set of Gossip Girl yesterday and she’s not hiding that major bling on her finger.
She’s wearing a $2mil wedding ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz. A spokesperson for the company said, “Ryan chose Lorraine Schwartz to help him find a flawless, light pink oval diamond. They worked together to design a custom setting in rose gold and pave diamonds with a nod to deco.”…. Guess you can keep the wedding super secretive but you gotta plug that massive ring when you get it for the free-free, right Ryan?
We told you yesterday that Amanda Bynes finally had to surrender her car after she was busted driving without a license again. Her car was impounded after she was pulled over outside of the airport for ‘driving bizarrely’.
But not having a car couldn’t keep Amanda from going out. You would think that maybe she’d want to stay out of the public for a minute and smoke a little weed at home, but no. She went out by herself to do a little shopping yesterday in West Hollywood. No word on how she got herself there (driving again so soon?) but she did leave in a cab because the paps were lurking outside.
Amanda went shopping at this hip boutique called Kin and tried on clothes in the dressing room for nearly 2 hours. 2 hours! It doesn’t even take Lindsay Lohan that long to steal jewelry, wreck a Porsche and trash an authentic Elizabeth Taylor trailer!
The clerks kept checking on her to make sure she was ok during her 2 hour lockdown in the dressing room. They kept hearing banging sounds coming and asked if she needed any help. She refused to come out and kept telling them that she needed more time.
The clerks said they were afraid that she was using drugs or even overdosing in there.
Finally, two hours later, she came out and bought a few items but the clerk noticed that she was wearing one of their bikini tops. Amanda said that she forgot that it was on and paid for the suit, then she asked the clerk to call her a cab.
Some sources are saying that Amanda is about to check into rehab for mental health issues. Other reports are saying that Amanda refuses to get help because she doesn’t think that she has a problem.
It’s just getting sad at this point. Someone needs to get that girl into rehab or step up and take conservatorship. It’s all funny until they shave their head and have a full blown breakdown.
Christina Aguilera announced that she was going to skip out on the next season of The Voice to focus on her music. She’s releasing a new album and going on tour. (Listen to her new song ‘Your Body’ here.. Think she should quit her day job?)
The producers said that if their artists needed to take off a season to do some music, they would always be welcomed back. Blake Shelton sounded like he was on the outs too. He said he wanted to return to his music before he became a TV person…. But he’s not the 2nd judge to bail out on next season.
Cee-Lo Green is making a grand exit alongside Christina. He’s working on two albums and developing an NBC sitcom about his life, so he’s a little too busy for a karaoke show right now.
But don’t worry. Two stars leave and two big stars bum rushed to take their spots. Shakira is stepping in to take over for Christina. This could be the best thing for her career since her sex tape leaked a few weeks ago. Nothing will boost your career faster than a sex tape or an over-exposed singing show.
And kinda surprised to hear that Usher will be taking over for Cee-Lo. Great choice just really didn’t peg him as someone to join a singing competition show. At least he’s gonna be with a respectable one and not joining Idol.
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will return for another season but may decide to take time off the following season.
UPDATE- The ruling is in! Victory goes to the royals!
Under the court order, Closer magazine must turn in all digital copies of the photos by noon Wednesday, must not print the photos further and will face a $12,000 fine each time it defies the ruling.
The royal family is going after the French publication that sneaked over to their poolside and snapped pics of Kate Middleton‘s royal rack.
A lawyer called this case a ‘grotesque invasion of privacy’ and picked up the case pro bono. They are trying to block the publication of these photos.
The royal fam is suing Closer magazine, the first one to publish these photos, for $6,500 in damages and an injunction to stop the magazine from publishing elsewhere, including the internet. They are asking that Closer be fined $13k a day for each the injunction isn’t respected and $131k if the photos are sold in France or abroad.
The court will make a decision today, if they are going to side with the royal family or the magazine. The photographer that snapped the pics, Valarie Suau, is now in hiding out of fear.
Lots of people are weighing in on this scandal. Sarah Ferguson, Dutchess of York, was once involved in her own topless, toe-sucking scandal. She released a statement saying, “I have total empathy and sympathy for her. I have been there and know what it’s like. Everyone is entitled to privacy. It is a devastating invasion of one’s personal inner space. It is deplorable, abhorrent and despicable.” And the royal fam is mad that she’s even speaking up about the situation, saying she’s only speaking out for attention!
Donald Trump says Kate is to blame. He tweeted, “Kate Middleton is great—but she shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude—only herself to blame. Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!”
Olympic snowboarder Shaun White got waste-faced in Nashville this weekend and started going a little crazy.
He trashed his hotel room then pulled the fire alarm, causing the hotel to be evacuated. He tried to off in a cab during the commotion but a concerned citizen wouldn’t let him get away. Shaun kicked him and tried to take off. The guy continued to follow Shaun until the cops arrived. They ended up colliding into each other and Shaun got thrown into a fence, opening a nasty wound on the back of his head.
The cops took him to the hospital and charged him with vandalism and public intoxication, after he refused to sign the citation. Who knew the flying tomato has some ginger rage in him? But he probably was just full of some liquid courage. They said that he appeared extremely intoxicated and reeked of alcohol.
The cops released him after he was charged. He is due in court at the beginning of October.
UPDATE- The hangover has worn off and Shaun feels a little silly for his drunken solo riot. Shaun posted this apology on Facebook, “I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I’m truly sorry for my poor behavior.”
