Celebrity weddings weekend… Suge Knight was released from the hospital… “Dancing With the Stars” celebrity contestants… The National Suicide Prevention Network request… and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are married
Two celebrity weddings this weekend. First up is Ashlee Simpson, who is set to marry Evan Ross at his mama’s house. Oh, and Evan’s mom is Diana Ross and her house is a sprawling estate in Greenwich. Rumor is that Diana will sing at the wedding. Also, Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union will tie the knot Saturday in Miami. TMZ has gotten a copy of the confidentiality agreement that everyone has to sign to be allowed in. Absolutely no cell phones or cameras are allowed. And if anything gets leaked that the couple doesn’t release themselves, violators will have to pay a fine for unspecified damages.
Just three days after taking five bullets to the gut and one in the arm, Suge Knight was released from the hospital early yesterday morning. Meantime, Suge is refusing to cooperate with the police investigating his shooting. A source told RadarOnline that the shooting was gang-related and that Suge is confident that the shooter will be dealt with “on the street, as these matters usually are.”
ABC won’t announce the official lineup until next week, but word is already out about this year’s celebrity contestants on “Dancing With the Stars.” Among the names being mentioned for season 19 are Bachelorette Andi Dorfman and her fiance Josh Murray, Antonio Sabato Jr., former UFC fighter Randy Couture, Olympic track star Lolo Jones, “American Ninja Warrior” contestant Kacy Catanzaro, 17-year-old “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson, “Pretty Little Liars” actress Janel Parrish, and singer Jessie James Decker, who happens to be married to Jets player Eric Decker. TMZ is also hearing that DWTS is trying to book a female YouTube star with tens of millions of followers. That has to be Jenna Marbles, right? The final, full cast will be announced one week from today.
NBC refused to air a suicide prevention PSA following the tribute to Robin Williams on the Emmys Monday night. The National Suicide Prevention Network requested that NBC broadcast its toll free crisis “lifeline,” but the network declined. A network rep told The Hollywood Reporter that they decided to “celebrate the life of Robin Williams, not his death or, more to the point, the way he died.” He went on to say, “Suicide is a serious issue, but we decided not to dwell on that — or its prevention — in this particular forum.”
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married this past Saturday! They kept it a secret until today, when they gave their publicist permission to release the big news. Ahead of the ceremony, the couple got their marriage license from a local judge in California, who also conducted the wedding ceremony in France. As expected, Brad and Angelina were married in a small chap on their estate, Chateau Miraval. The non-denominational civil ceremony was attended by their closest friends and family. Maddox and Pax walked their mother down the aisle. Zahara and Vivienne served as flower girls. And the ring bearers were Shiloh and Knox.
