A mere four months ago, Sinead O’Connor was just another bald pope-hating ’90s musician desperately looking for love and anal sex on the Internet. And today, she’s a married woman! It’s like a real-life fairy tale, you guys! The singer celebrated her 45th birthday last night in Las Vegas by tying the knot with her boyfriend, therapist Barry Herridge. The happy couple met on Twitter several months ago, when he responded to her request for a man to date. Errr … you might want to dress that story up a bit, guys.
The deed was done at the Little White Wedding Chapel, or rather outside of it. The couple took the “drive thru” approach, actually getting married while cruising in a pink Cadillac on the edge of the church. No word on whether they wanted fries with their wedding license. “I’ve been married before, but I’ve never had my dream wedding in Vegas,” she told Reuters. “I wanted to do it there because it’s casual, quick, not religious and, most of all, very romantic.” Of course, everyone knows that Las Vegas is the most romantic city in the world. Tons of stars have traveled to Vegas to say “I do.” Most of them said, “I don’t anymore,” shortly after … but so what!

Reminding us that she is the older woman in the relationship, Ashley celebrated her 24th birthday on Saturday night at Pure in Vegas. And boyfriend Joe was not only around to support his girlfriend, he scored high in the present department as well. That heavyweight gold bracelet you see dangling off Greene’s wrist is Joe’s gift. And nothing says “I love you” better than Chanel, does it? Even though the JoBro can’t tell the difference, girlfriend sure can. On receiving the Chanel charm bracelet she revealed, “The funny thing about it is when I got it, my boyfriend said it’s vintage Coach — and I was like ‘Thanks so much.’ And then I put it on and was like, ‘Oh my god, this is Chanel’.” Cha-ching!
She added the necessary “it’s awesome” bit, which is so much easier when you’ve got Chanel instead of Coach. Greene continued, “It was very cute and sweet and adorable to me because my boyfriend gave it to me. Coach, Chanel makes no difference to him … I absolutely love it because he knows what I like.” Yeah, thank God he didn’t go the Coach route because that would’ve killed the “happy” in the “birthday”. Ashley’s Candy-Land themed party looks like a blast though, complete with oversized lollipops, a three-tiered cake and one doting JoBro.
It turns out we weren’t the only people who learned aboutCharlie Sheen’s Vegas drama online; turns out, his coworkers did too! On Conan last night, Sheen’s Two and A Half Men co-star John Cryer opened up about Sheen and his long history of bad behavior. “It’s always a little weird because like the stuff you hear is just unbelievable. I mean like… I’m checking TMZ, as I do everyday, to know if I have to go to work at all,” Cryer laughed. It must be like waiting for a snow day as a kid, except now the snow is in Charlie Sheen’s nasal cavities and/or blanketing a cadre of prostitutes.
While CBS has expressed concern about Sheen before, Cryer just laughs it off. After hearing about Sheen’s car being stolen again this past summer, Jon jokes, “I said, ‘How you doin’ man” He said, ‘I’m doing OK, except that somebody stole my car and ran it off a cliff last night.’ Normally, you would not believe that from somebody… but from Charlie Sheen you believe that, because that happened to him. Twice!” Now we understand why Jenna Jameson warns porn stars about Sheen, telling them “Run! Run! Screaming!” You never know when the third time is the charm.
We wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Vince Neil attacked a woman in a hotel elevator, but it doesn’t mean we won’t be disappointed by it. Vince Neil’s Las Vegas Hilton elevator assault supposedly began when victim Jessica Radovicz noticed the former MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e front man,Ã‚Â and asked if he was “on TV”. According to Radovicz, “As the elevator doors were closing … [Vince] lunged at me and tried to push me out. One of his lady friends said, ‘Get out, bitch!'” You should never, ever ask a washed-up rock star if you know them from TV; it’s like going to the zoo and staring a wolf in the eyes. You can’t stop what you are about to unleash, especially if the wolf is with his “lady friends”.
Radovicz eventually went to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police with her story, and says she has bruises to prove the attack happened.Ã‚Â However, a rep for the Las Vegas Hilton has since produced security camera footage they insist shows Neil is blameless, claiming “after reviewing surveillance video and interviewing witnesses, we’ve concluded that her allegations against Vince Neil are completely unfounded.” The accusation is just the latest event in Vince’s incredibly busy year. Over the past two and half months alone, Neil has racked up a DUI and a solo album release, dealt with the death of his and Heidi Montag’s plastic surgeon, and now stands accused of hulking out on an unsuspecting bystander. Or as Vince Neil likes to call it, summertime.

Cheesy magician Criss Angel is being accused of stealing Vegas comedian Jeff Beacher‘s cat (pictured together above with Paris Hilton). Apparently Beacher left his cat with a pal for a few days, and Angel swooped in, snagged the cat and – poof! – refused to give it back. Beacher is pissed off and is threatening to sue to get his whiskered friend home again. A letter to Angel from Beacher’s lawyer outlines the deets:
After both of Mr. Beacher’s parents passed away due to cancer [two years ago], his family’s cat (“Hamlet”) was bequeathed to him by will. At the time, Mr. Beacher was residing at the Hard Rock Hotel [in Las Vegas]. Accordingly, he allowed his friend Jennifer Madden to temporarily care for the cat until he moved out of the hotel. Soon thereafter, while still grieving over the recent loss of his father, my client received a phone call from you stating, ‘I took your cat. He lives with me now’ . . . This action was against the will of Ms. Madden and Mr. Beacher. I also understand that you made further bizarre allegations, including, ‘The cat no longer likes you’ and ‘The cat and I have become close friends.’ “
It seems that at least a year has passed since the great Las Vegas cat-napping, but that’s not stopping Beacher from going after what’s rightfully his. “I was a mess,” he says of the time lil’ Hamlet first went missing. “I’m better now and want my cat back.” [NYPost. Photo: GettyImages]
