There’s no better look than a bride looking, er, “blooming” on her big day, is there? With a beautiful dress of your dreams and a baby bump, no look screams SHOTGUN WEDDING louder than a pregnant belly. Lovely! Yet curiously, that’s the look that Spice Girl Geri Halliwell wants when she marries her longstanding boyfriend of two whole months, Fabrizio Politi.
“Geri wants a summer wedding and hopes to be pregnant by then … she is keen for a sibling for Bluebell,” a friend tells today’s issue of Reveal magazine.
Why? Why do celebrities defy the normal constraints of time and patience when doing anything? Oh yes, it’s because if they don’t keep doing new things, we’ll lose interest in them and stop writing snarky blog posts. Sorry! [Photo: Splash News Online]
The first contender for Sneakiest Wedding of ’09? They only broke up a few months ago, but Salma Hayek has now married her French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. They tied the knot on Valentine’s day in the swish St Germain area of Paris. Ahhh. Maybe seeing her impressive boobs performing their natural duty in photos streamed across the world made him realise that’s one heck of a woman. You shouldn’t let her boobs get away.

On the first episode of Fox’s scifi drama Fringe, Anna Torv and Mark Valley played FBI agents that were also secret lovers…until Valley was seemingly killed in a chemical explosion. Now it turns out they’re secret lovers in real life, too. Torv’s people confirmed to the Associate Press that the pair were secretly wed in December. Odd, but nowhere as weird as Dexter marrying his sister.
This again?! People is like, totally positive that supermodel Gisele Bundchen and super quarterback Tom Brady are engaged. This is the second time in recent weeks that the gorgeous couple has been at the center of wedding rumors, which started when TMZ incorrectly reported that Brady had popped the question on a private jet on Christmas Eve.
Now comes word – again – that the Patriots star proposed with a diamond solitaire in Los Angeles over the weekend. “The couple is discussing a huge fashionista event in the spring,” cooed a source, “or a more intimate and quicker ceremony in Costa Rica, where Gisele has a home.”
Scandalist is going to wait to freak out about the two hottest people in the world getting hitched until we are face to face with Gisele’s rock. We can’t take this emotional rollercoaster any longer! Gis – hurry up and call us! [Photo: FilmMagic]
Aww, super-cute couple Fergie and Josh Duhamel tied the knot on Saturday in what sounds like a stylish wedding day. People carries all the juicy details, from the ten (TEN!) bridesmaids dressed in ‘contrasting black’ to the bride’s Dolce e Gabbana gown, her ‘crystal-studded’ bouquet and the ‘white gold with a brushed finish’ design of Josh’s ring, not to mention the eclectic group of celebrity guests (Mario Lopez! Kid Rock! Slash!)
But the best news for the new Mrs Duhamel must have been the wedding meal after the service. Poor Stacey has been working out every day and presumably, eating very little in order to lose the 13lb she gained for her role in movie Nine. And she did it. Congrats, Fergs. Now have this cupcake and eat it in bed on honeymoon with your gorgeous husband. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Alyssa Milano has dated actors, baseball players and even Justin Timberlake. But she officially left her fellow celebrities behind on December 18 by getting engaged to someone who exists behind the scenes — a talent agent. The 36-year-old former Charmed/Who’s the Boss? actress, who now has a recurring role on My Name is Earl, will marry David Bugliari, who works for the Creative Artists Agency. Congrats, Alyssa! Here’s to some big starring roles in your future! [Photo: Getty Images]
Last week was a big one for Batman’s ally on the Gotham City police force. Gary Oldman, who played Commissioner Gordon in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, got married in Santa Barbara to jazz singer Alexandra Edenborough (Oldman’s agent served as the best man in the small ceremony). Then tragedy struck on Saturday, when Pat Hingle, who played Gordon in the four Batman films released from 1989-1997, died of complications relating to blood cancer in his North Carolina home. Coincidentally, Oldman’s first wife was Uma Thurman, who played Poison Ivy opposite Hingle in Batman & Robin.
Hingle, a veteran stage actor who received a Tony nomination in 1958, fell down an elevator shaft that same year, breaking numerous bones and losing his left pinky. Due to the months of recuperation, Hingle missed out on playing the lead in Elmer Gantry, which instead went to Burt Lancaster. Hingle played countless character roles on TV and in movies, but theater remained his primary interest. He was 84.
Due to the rule of threes, we’re a little concerned for Bob Hastings.
Think of Woody Harrelson and what comes into your mind straightaway? For us, it’s being all pro-hemp, smoking pot, occasionally making a movie and then smoking more pot again. So we’re pleased that he stayed true to his hippy lifestyle by doing a totally bourgeois thing like getting married to longterm girlfriend Lara Louie in a totally un-bourgeois way.
Like, in Hawaii. Wearing a loose-fitted white shirt, that’s not tucked in, uh-uh. With fellow “man, we’re serious actors but we don’t fit into that conservative Hollywood mold, so get off our backs” movie stars Owen Wilson and Sean Penn. And then have the happy couple serenaded by “she used to be huge but now she’s a credible artiste again or something” Alanis Morrissette. And to ensure that no-one really expected you to get married after being with your woman for 18 years already. Yep, Woody is keeping it real, man. Congrats! [Source: Metro; Photo: Splash News Online]
Between Christmas and New Year is a quiet old time in the world of celebrity, as all the rich ones head off to holiday in the Caribbean. Bah. So it was time to revive one of the classic “it will never die” stories and speculate once more on when Brad and Angelina are going to get hitched. According to Britain’s Now magazine, it’s going to be next June, after Maddox piled on the pressure by conducting a cute pretend ceremony for the couple at home. They also reckon…
- It’ll be conducted at their home in New Orleans!
- George Clooney will be chief usher! (WTF?)
- Angie will wear a lace dress that once belonged to her mum Marcheline!
- Brad’s brother Doug will be Best Man!
- The Wonder Twins will be carried by a family member (shock)!
All very lovely, isn’t it? But frankly, even if one of these facts turned out to be true, we’d be extremely surprised. So, we’ll add our own “amazing” predictions to the mix.
- Angelina will look amazing!
- Brad won’t play Jeff Buckley’s Grace during the service like he did when he married Jen!
- Neither Jennifer Aniston, nor Courteney Cox Arquette will be there!
- The photos will sell for a million gazillion dollars!
- Er, that’s it!
