Mena Suvari Has A Beautiful Italian Wedding

59632834

Happy news! Actress Mena Suvari married her music producer beau Simone Sestito in Vatican City  on Saturday. Sestito proposed to Suvari in back in summer 2008, and she revealed, “He got down his knees. It was very romantic. I love him. He’s Italian and my family is part Greek, and it’s all about family and culture…I love his family and it just inspires me to live that kind of life.” Suvari wore a gown by Stacey Bendet, owner of Alice + Olivia and a close friend of the American Beauty actress.

The actress had spoken to UsMagazine.com this March about the wedding saying it was going to be “very romantic and traditional Italian…we’ll have at least a couple hundred guests. It’s big!” This is the second marriage for Suvari. She and cinematographer Robert Brinkman, who is 17 years her senior, were married for 5 years before divorcing in 2005.
Sestito’s completely head-over-heels with his new bride saying, “The thing I love most about her is the understanding. We get each other a lot, so there’s a good connection there.” They also connect very well over the poker table. Suvari plays on the World Poker Tour in the Hollywood Home games for the Starlight Children’s Foundation and said of her husband, “We play poker together really well.”  Sestito added, “We went to Vegas and she made more than I did!” That’s more cash in the collective bank! Congratulations to the newly hitched couple.

Elton John Gives New Bestie Lady Gaga A Vintage Tea Set

17264079

It seems Sir Elton John and Lady GaGa are suddenly BFFs. And why not? Both sing. Both play piano. Both wear outlandish costumes. And at least one of them loves both “God and the gays!” If having all of this in common weren’t already enough, the two definitely cemented their friendship after Lady Gaga performed in a see-through plastic dress at a ball for Sir Elton’s AIDS foundation last week.

According to The Sun, Elton thanked Lady Gaga with a vintage tea set after she took a “tour of his home and was awestruck by his china collection.” Remember, this is a girl who carried her own teacup and saucer everywhere and wouldn’t drink out of anything else. Let’s hope owning an entire set of fine china won’t push her over the edge.

Mel Gibson Denies Knocking Oksana’s Teeth Out

59557491

It turns out there’s a lot more to this Mel Gibson restraining order story than we previously reported, and the dirty details are still coming out. Baby-mama Oksana Grigorieva, who claims Mel Gibson is violent, got a restraining order against him last week. TMZ is quoting a source who claims that Oksana “tried to protect the baby during one of Gibson’s violent episodes” and ended up getting her teeth knocked out. Mel’s camp denies these claims.

Oksana is also claiming that Mel has not helped her financially with their nine-month-old daughter, which has forced her to borrow money from friends and use credit cards. “He is not paying me a penny,” she said. “Nothing.”

Soccer Stud Landon Donovan Has An Alleged Love Child

60891905

Soccer star Landon Donovan is coming home to a lot of controversy after Team U.S.A lost to Ghana in the World Cup. A British mystery mistress claims to be carrying Landon’s love child, and is threatening to provide the details to a couple of British tabloids. Apparently the baby was conceived last winter during the 10 weeks Donovan spent playing for Everton  in the English Premier League. Donovan has not denied paternity and told Sports Illustrated, “If I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support.”

The leading scorer for the U.S team is separated from Rule of Engagement actress Bianca Kajilich, but they’re rumored to be getting back together. He blew her a kiss and called her his inspiration during a post game interview, and a source has stated it would not be surprising at all “if Landon and Bianca were back together very soon.” No word yet from Kajlich about the baby drama. She only tweeted after the home team lost to Ghana typing, “Man oh man. Tough loss. So proud of our boys.”

The Lohans Are The Roaches Of Reality TV – They Will Not Die

14521845

We’re going to see a lot more of Lindsay Lohan – apart from her portraying Linda Lovelace, that is. Lindsay, her mom Dina, sister Ali and other siblings will be appearing in a new reality show. The show will be all about the cameras following them around while they go about their daily lives, Keeping-up-with-the-Lohans style.

Dina revealed, “We have already started filming. The cameras follow us in our daily lives and as we promote our businesses. I want to prove that we are a good, hardworking family and we don’t have the crazy lives that some people claim we do. The show will feature my kids, and Lindsay will also appear in some episodes, although she’s very busy filming and promoting her fashion lines. We’re discussing a deal with a major network.” It goes without saying that dad Michael Lohan isn’t part of the show. Uh, obviously.

Lindsay Lohan Shouldn’t Get A Spray Tan, And Is Due in Court To Talk Drugs

60666894

Things aren’t looking so great for Lindsay Lohan (what’s new). LA Superior Court judge Richard A Stone has ordered the actress to ‘fess up to a whole lot of questions which will include inquiries of drug use. She’ll be under oath, remember!  Lohan’s answers will be used in a civil lawsuit filed against her by Tracie Rice, who claims she suffered emotional after being a passenger in the car chased by Lohan in July 2007. She’s suing Li.Lo for assault, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Lohan has been ordered to sit for a two-hour deposition next month.

And she can’t even relax with one of her favorite occupations until then. We mean tanning! Because spray tanning could trigger a positive alcohol reading on her SCRAM bracelet. Apparently, people have told Lindsay she can’t get a spray tan while she’s rocking the SCRAM, because a chemical in the tanning solution can create an alcohol reading. Lindsay’s still getting a spray tan 1-2 times a week. She’s pretty sick of the bracelet too claiming it’s digging into her skin and irritating her. A source says, “She’s made life hell for the people around her, since she is in pretty bad pain.” No sympathy, sorry.

Farrah Fawcett Contacted Tori Spelling From The Afterlife

60828780

Tori Spelling clearly won’t stop at anything to promote her new book, Uncharted TerriTORI, including spinning rumors that her 90210 co-stars can’t stand her. But has she crossed the line from ambitious to ape-sh*t? In a new interview with Out Magazine, she claims Farrah Fawcett reached out to her from beyond the grave. And it’s all in her book, of course.

Apparently, she made contact with Fawcett through a psychic reading from John Edward, professional ghost whisperer. “It was pretty surreal. He offered to do a reading with me and I was hoping I would talk to my dad. I’d lost a best friend a long time ago and I was hoping he would come through. And then, all of a sudden, [he said] Farrah Fawcett’s coming through. And we were neighbors for years. She basically wanted me to give a message to [Fawcett's son] Redmond and to her family and she was doing these very specific call outs for things that they would understand. In the book, I don’t solve it.” Cue in book plug!

She stated, “I can’t believe she came through to me — the most nonconfrontational person in the world. What am I supposed to do with this information? Since the book has been out, I’ve actually written a letter to [her partner and actor] Ryan O’Neal and explained to him in the letter everything that happened. I said, if none of this makes sense, please don’t think I’m crazy, this literally happened. I’m just passing on information but it was pretty bizarre at the time.” Tori, just “passing on information” doesn’t mean passing on information to the whole world. That kinda negates the whole altruistic vibe you were going for.

Justin Bieber’s Mom Offered A Playboy Spread

59473041

Who knew that Bieber-fever extended to members of his immediate family? In a strange twist that indicates that Hugh Hefner has either lost all of his mental acuity or that he’s wilier than ever, Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Lynn Mallette, has been asked by Playboy to pose for an upcoming spread, Zack Taylor reports.  No word yet on whether or not she will accept the offer, but she has been offered $50,000 to appear in a sexy shoot for an upcoming issue. Not totally nude, mind you, but topless.

Single Mom Mallette had Bieber when she was just 18 years-old, and worked low-paying jobs to support him until a YouTube video of her son singing Ne-Yo’s So Sickrolled out the fame juggernaut. Wonder how Biebs would react if she said yes?

Mel Gibson Files A Restraining Order Against His Baby Mama

17154926

Mel Gibson has gone a bit balmy hasn’t he? Getting sh*itfaced and spewing anti-Semitic abuse, knocking up his mistress Oksana Grigorieva, cheating on her while she was pregnant, then splitting up for “undisclosed reasons.” We’re guessing it’s because Mel can’t keep his Mad Max in his pants.

Mel has now filed a restraining order against his baby mama Grigorieva, according to RadarOnline.com. She’s the mother of his illegitimate seven-month-old daughter. He filed the paperwork at the Los Angeles Superior Court in downtown Los Angeles, and Grigorieva was served the documents at her Sherman Oaks home.  Apparently the issue revolves around Gibson’s access to their daughter, Lucia. We’re not sure how the two will resolve this dispute, but we do hold out hope that it involves a trip to the Thunderdome.

Are Katy Perry And Russell Brand Already Married?

Hkg3192110

These two may have pulled a fast one on us. Katy Perry and Russell Brand might have already married in secret. The singer was on The Graham Norton Show on the other side of the Atlantic and at one point said, “Life’s never dull with him – that’s why I married him.”

Of course, that brought on some major WTF’s from both the host and the audience, so she quickly amended her statement with a flustered “That’s why I’m marrying him!” But after being pressed, Perry refused to clarify her initial statement. She didn’t budge on the whether she and Brand — who are supposed to walk down the aisle this fall — had secretly got hitched already. Adding to the conspiracy theories, she also referred to Russell’s mom Barbara as her mother-in-law later on in the interview.

What do you think? Truth? Or publicity?
