Lindsay drops out -- MK, Britney and Miley still in

Lindsay Lohan (”Ugly Betty”) chose not to enter the Emmy race, which may be surprising considering that so many of her tabloid sisters are in the running. Two compete in the category that Lohan dodges — best guest actress in a comedy series: Britney Spears (”How I Met Your Mother”) and Mary-Kate Olsen (”Weeds”). They’ll compete against 39 rivals who also entered that category.

“Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus joined the smackdown of 25 gals battling it out to be chosen best lead actress in a comedy series.

Lohan didn’t submit herself for contention in the guest race because “the appearance was brief,” notes her rep Leslie Sloane. “We made a decision to wait.” Next TV season Lohan will appear in at least six episodes of “Betty” and will get more face time than she did in her debut appearance last month. In the season finale she uttered only four lines in a scene less than a minute long as she invited Betty Suares (America Ferrera) to play dodge ball with her team. When Betty accepted, happy to be wanted, she discovered that Lohan and her sinister cohorts only wanted to use her as a human shield against a barrage of flung balls.


Lindsay had 69% positive reviews for her role on Ugly Betty
Britney had 91% positive reviews for her role in HIMYM
Mary-Kate had 70% positive reviews for her role in Weeds

Musicians sue 'Idol' in royalties dispute

Musicians sue 'Idol' in royalties dispute

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A musicians union has filed a federal lawsuit against the producers of "American Idol," claiming musicians were underpaid because the show's live music was re-recorded for reruns.

The American Federation of Musicians filed the suit seeking unspecified damages Thursday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, alleging that American Idol Productions Inc. and its subsidiary Tick Tock Productions Inc. violated a collective bargaining agreement.

That contract says the show's musicians should be paid royalties for rebroadcasts of the show, the lawsuit said.

The producers are required to pay 75 percent of scale to musicians who appear in the original show and rehearsals, plus 10 percent of that pay to a union pension fund, with decreasing percentages for each rebroadcast, according to court papers.

Sean Connery Rushed to Hospital After Golf Injury

James Bond may have escaped from the clutches of Dr. No, but it seems he's fallible in real life.

Sean Connery, the original 007, landed in the hospital today after injuring himself playing golf, Star has learned exclusively.

The shaken not stirred star was taken to Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, N.Y., with what is believed to be a fractured ankle.

When contacted, a rep for the 77-year-old Scottish actor said, "He's fine."

Incredible, Indeed!

So horns-tooting glorious was Ed Norton's physique on the Toronto set of The Incredible Hulk that it gave even Liv Tyler a complex.

No slouch in the comely department herself, she recently told Norton to his face that she had some hang-ups about making hot, fake love to him on screen. As Tyler put it, "There was actually a moment there where I said, 'Wait a minute, we can't do this love scene because your body is so much more beautiful than mine.' "

Giving her a bemused look during an actor-on-actor exchange, Norton quipped, "I often get compared to Liv Tyler's body."

"His body was insane," she said more than once during this online interview. Norton, on the other hand, sums it all up another way: "Think Bruce Lee with a slightly WASP-ier thing."

Alas, it would appear that the actor's slavery to all things organic paid off. As I reported last fall, when the movie was still shooting in these parts, Norton, poker-faced as ever and brilliant as hell, was spotted doing time at that raw-food Shangri-La near Dupont and Spadina called Live Organic Bar. The place where the man who would be green was noted eating big-deal bowls of salad, and where it was wondered if Hulk was, in fact, on the Skinny Bitch Diet!

Meanwhile, with reviews now trickling out about this latest re-imagining of the anger- challenged beast, it should be noted that Norton is firmly in line with 2008's other comic-book icons. Totally cut -- but with a subtext. Roger Friedman, the people-watcher on FoxNews.com,wrote the other day, "Norton, like Robert Downey in Iron Man and Christian Bale as Batman, ushers in this new generation of the thinking man's superhero." "Unlike the others," he went on, "he is not slam-dunk handsome, but that doesn't seem to matter. Buffed up, he and Roth are like chess players who are sent to gym class."


I saw him on the subway during filming and he is SO incredibly hot. I think I'm in love with him.

Kim in the News: Ridiculous Reggie rumors

I haven't commented on ridiculous rumors about my relationship because they simply don't affect my relationship. However, I see many of you keep asking and wondering, so I have decided to set the record straight.

It may be time to address rumors about Reggie...

There is a girl named Najmah Brown and speculation that she is Reggie's "side chick." This is totally false and Reggie does not know this person nor has he even met her. There were also rumors about some drama at a basketball game. Again, none of this is true. There were even pictures of a random girl that mediatakeout posted saying she was Reggie's "side chick," which, again, is not true. The girl felt so bad she was messaging me on MySpace about how furious she was that they stole her picture!

You may have already noticed that there are never pictures of any of these alleged experiences.

For once in my life, I am in a committed, trusting relationship. Before Reggie, I always tended to date the wrong guy who just wasn't ready. If I would hear negative things about them my gut feeling inside was telling me it was true, but I believed the guy anyway. I have made so many poor choices and never knew when to let go, always was the girl to stay and try to trust again. But the reality is, a girl has a gift -- her intuition. So use it ladies and don't be that dumb girl who gets taken advantage of!

I no longer have those problems and trust me, it feels sooo good! I think I finally got it right this time!

By the way, we just landed in Florence today. Reggie met me here. The city is so romantic! By the time we leave here, how much do you want to bet the engagement rumors will swirl!

Pharrell Wants To Produe The Next Album Of The Best Looking Band Ever

That's Right, "The Strokes."

Pharrell Williams has said that he wants to produce The Strokes' next album. The N.E.R.D star claimed he was inspired to work with the New York indie band after teaming up with their singer Julian Casablancas on a musical tribute to Converse trainers. "Julian Casablancas and I collaborated on something with Santogold so I'm talking to him about their next record," Williams told NME. "I want it bad!" "I really wanna do it. I don't know [if Casablancas wants me], but I’d love to [produce the album]." The Strokes are expected to begin work on the follow-up to 2006's First Impressions Of Earth later this year.

The Incredible Hulk: The Truth About Edward Norton vs. Marvel

incrediblehulkexplained.jpg picture by coolerthanpie

Okay, you’ve heard the rumors of the behind-the-scenes battle between Marvel and star Edward Norton over The Incredible Hulk. I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking me to explain what exactly happened. Here is what I know/have heard or gathered:

Edward Norton turned down the project when he was first approached but Marvel insisted that he meet with director Louis Leterrier, and Norton relented. At the meeting Norton offered his version of The Hulk story, and Marvel agreed to hire a screenwriter to work with him on a rewrite of Zak Penn’s draft. But no screenwriter was ever hired and Norton did a substantial page-one rewrite by himself. Anne Thompson explains: “With about two months to go before the movie started filming, Norton did a page one rewrite–knowing that he couldn’t do anything radical, because sets were being built, locations found, etc. The entire Brazil sequence was already story-boarded.” Norton added a lot of dialogue and character motivation, and Marvel agreed to shoot Norton’s draft of the screenplay.

After production was completed, Leterrier put together “an assembly” of the film, which basically included everything that was shot. The director explained to Collider: “It’s called a suicide run because it’s absolutely horrible. You want to commit suicide after you see it.”

Marvel decided they wanted make a shorter, more action-packed cut of the film, discarding a lot of the character development pieces that Norton had brought to the screenplay.

So after this we had a meeting—just like this—like a round table where I go okay we have to find solutions. And then we were screaming stuff and everything. Maybe somebody walked in, a PA or somebody walked in, somebody who’s not used to it and we’re having a conversation and Edward was like…no, Edward’s very vocal.

Stop lying that you're fine, cause you're like me, and you can't give up until an all time love

Fucking finally! Will Young is releasing a new album! But who is Will Young?

Years and years ago, an English lad went on television and sang some dreadful music very nicely, enabling him to win Britain's first Pop Idol competition. Then, much unlike his counterparts on American Idol, he came out of the closet. Then he had a few respectable hits on the British charts, and then all of a sudden he sang the most perfectly lovely song, which was called "All Time Love." It was such a pretty song. So pretty. It was the prettiest song.

And then he had a movie role in which he briefly revealed his penis, and then he starred in a Noel Coward play in the West End, and then he made a television programme about how it's wrong to kill gorillas.

Which is all very nice, but it ain't pop music! But this week Will Young at last annouced a new disc coming out in the fall. It's going to be called Let Go, and the release date is September 29th, 2008. Disquietingly, he has hired a songwriter called Biff who wrote "2 Become 1" for the Spice Girls and "Love at First Sight" for Kylie Minogue, but I'm sure it will be brilliant nevertheless.

And yes, I realize most Americans are not excited because they don't know who he is, so here is a link of that one song he sang which is so, so pretty. I'm not allowed to embed it, but it's completely worth it to click. The video has ~~drama~~! It is about a woman who refuses to rat out her boyfriend's illegal poetry-reading group to a totalitarian police state, despite the fact that he's gay for her best friend. "All Time Love," y'all.

Okay, now you've seen the video and you know all about how lovely Will Young is, yet his album will not be released until September! What will you do? Don't worry, you can simply fly to England and see him perform at the summer festivals, thus:

June 28: Glastonbury Festival, Avalon Stage
July 7: T in the Park, Balado, Kinross-Shire
September 6: Bestival, the Isle of Wight

Don't kill gorillas!

Trace collaborating with Miley

Trace Cyrus never planned on becoming an entertainer, but thanks to dear old dad, Billy Ray, and little half-sister Miley, he really didn't have much choice in the matter.

"I've been playing my guitar, and I've been on tour with Dad every summer since I was a kid," he told MTV News. "And I've seen mistakes he's made and the stuff he went through with labels, and I know that the music business is scary."

Nonetheless, when sister Miley gave him a CD of her co-star Mitchel Musso's brother Mason, a musical union was born.

"I fell in love with the music," Cyrus says. "I went down to the 'Hannah Montana' set one day to hang out with my sister, and Mason was there. We hung out a little bit and talked about music. The next week, I went over to his house, and we recorded our first song. Ever since then, we'd get together every weekend to make music, and I think our parents are shocked that it turned into something more than they expected."

The pop band, Metro Station's self-titled 2007 debut CD has sold more than 87,000 copies thus far, and even though what they do is very different from Cyrus' little sister, that doesn't mean they won't be teaming up in the near future.

"Actually I'm going to sing on one of the tracks on her next album," he said. "I can't say much about it right now, but we will be collaborating."

K-Fed Named Father of the Year

Kevin Federling has been named Father of the Year by Las Vegas club Prive.

"I'm surprised," Federline said when asked how it felt to win the title.

Britney's ex, 30, hit up the club with eight male pals — including divorce attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan — just before 1 a.m. Saturday morning.

Federline — also named a Power Player last year — had a quiet night at the club, chilling with friends and pumping his fist into the air when Timbaland's "The Way I Are" was played by the DJ.

Prive presented Federline his Father of the Year trophy "someplace quiet" at the dad-of-four's request, so clubgoers didn't see the ceremony, according to a source.

He was gone by 3:15 a.m.

“This is my last show,” the rapper M.I.A. announced from the stage of That Tent, “and I’m glad I’m spending it with all my hippies.” If, as she announced at least three times, it was M.I.A.’s last gig ever, she went out with a boom. The seismic riffs of her songs, which sound like they’re made on the world’s cheapest equipment, puffed bass notes at everyone’s chest, and M.I.A. was all of her interlocking selves: fighter, lover, immigrant, instigator, party girl.

Wearing an outfit that included shiny streamers as tails, she shook every part of her body sooner or later, yelping her hooks and spitting out her rhymes, dense with allusions and snappy enough for slogans. She brought “girls” and then “boys” onstage, surrounding herself with happy dancers, and brought the Nigerian rapper African Boy onstage for her encores,
rapping about how immigrants have to hustle. For her finale, “Paper Planes,” the audience that spilled far outside the tent pumped fists happily at the gunshot sounds that are also one of the song’s hooks. “Thanks for coming to my last gig,” she said, amid noise that continued well after she was gone.

Mario & Hooters Hottie Danced Horizontal Mambo
Jefferson Reid
Sat Jun 14, 6:29 AM ET

Proving once again that dancing a three-person duet just doesn't work, a former Hooters calendar model says she unknowingly cut in on Mario Lopez and his Dancing With the Stars partner Karina Smirnoff.

Hooters gal Meagan Cooper tells E! she and Lopez carried on a secret romance for almost a year while he publicly dated Smirnoff (the Dancing duo recently split).

"He told me he lived alone," recalls Cooper, "but I opened up [his] closet and saw a row of women's shoes and said, 'Either you are a cross-dresser or a woman is living here.'..."

"Mario said Karina just left her stuff there and was moving it out. He kept telling me that he and Karina were broken up."

The aspiring singer/songwriter, who is promoting her role in the ABC reality series I Survived a Japanese Game Show, says she and Lopez remained romantic up until March, but adds:

"We're not friends anymore. He¹s really pissed. He's like, 'You're not supposed to talk to [press],' but when you make me look like a total whore, I'm going to tell somebody about it," Cooper says.

"He's a really great guy, don¹t get me wrong. He's a really nice person. He has a lot of great qualities but he was not the most faithful person in the world," says Cooper.

A rep for Lopez declined to comment on Cooper's allegations.

Tim Russert: His Sudden Death Explained

TV news star Tim Russert's abrupt collapse at the NBC News studio in Washington, D.C., yesterday came as a shock – even to his doctor.

In a statement detailing autopsy results, Dr. Michael Newman said his famous patient had passed a stress test on April 29 and had even worked out on a treadmill the morning of his death.

"Russert, age 58, was known to have asymptomatic coronary artery disease (atherosclerosis), which resulted in hardening of his coronary arteries," Newman said. "The autopsy revealed an enlarged heart and significant atherosclerosis of the left anterior descending coronary artery with (a) fresh clot which caused a heart attack resulting in a fatal ventricular arrhythmia."

Russert's stress test on April 29 was "normal," Newman said. "At a high level of exercise he had no symptoms," Newman said, adding that his blood pressure and cholesterol were "well-controlled."

The newsman collapsed while preparing for his show Meet the Press Friday afternoon. Resuscitation attempts began immediately and after the Washington, D.C., paramedics arrived on the scene a full code was initiated, he said. He was taken to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., where resuscitation efforts continued to no avail. Studies show that survival is only 4 to 5 percent with sudden cardiac arrest, even with immediate medical attention like Russert had, Newman noted.

His Final Morning
Dr. Cyril Wecht, a nationally renowned forensic pathologist, said Newman's description of why Russert died makes sense. "The left anterior descending artery is well known among pathologists as the widow-maker," he tells PEOPLE. "That tells you a lot, doesn't it? It's a classical situation that one encounters with great frequency in sudden unexpected death where you get a blood clot, or a thrombosis, or bleeding and if he had an enlarged heart, that adds to it."

Clots can be caused by any number of things, he said. "Sometimes it's associated with stress and exertion, physical and/or emotional," he said. "Was he flying a long time? Was he tired? People shoveling snow in the wintertime can get them. People working excessively hard. Or people under great physical and/or emotional stress and that can include flying."

Russert had flown in from Italy late Thursday night, where he'd been celebrating his son Luke's recent graduation from Boston College with his son and his wife, Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth.

CNBC chief Washington correspondent John Harwood and Gerald Seib, his co-author on the new book, Pennsylvania Avenue: Profiles in Backroom Power, had seen Russert the morning he died. They were with Russert to tape an hour-long discussion of their new book for his CNBC cable show, The Tim Russert Program.

"We walked out of the taping around 10:15 and Gerry said, 'You know, I don't think Tim felt very well,' " Harwood tells PEOPLE. "I knew he was tired because he had flown in from Rome the night before, but I didn't think much of it."

Wecht said only one thing does not make sense to him – Newman's claim that Russert passed the stress test on April 29 and that he could have passed one an hour before his death. "This hardening of the arteries is something that builds up over a period of years," said Wecht. "So he wouldn't be able to continue the stress test. He'd get short of breath."

Newman could not be reached for comment.

Paula Abdul is back on the market.

Abdul's publicist, Jeffrey Ballard, confirms exclusively to E! News that Abdul and her boyfriend, restauranteur J.T. Torregiani, have been not together for at least two months.

"They broke up months ago," Ballard tells E!, adding that the couple, who moved in together last year, are no longer cohabitating. E! has learned that J.T. is now living with a friend in the Hollywood Hills.

Abdul, 46, announced she was dating Torregiani, who is 12 years her junior, last July.

The American Idol judge told the Today show's Matt Lauer at the time that Torregiani was "a good guy" and that her personal life was "looking upwards."

"Things are looking good right now," Abdul said.

Torregiani is one of the partners of the Dolce Group, a restaurant and nightclub enterprise, which includes Los Angeles hot spots Les Deux, Geisha House, Bella, Ketchup and Dolce.

They were last spotted together celebrating Torregiani's birthday at Beso restaurant in Hollywood on May 19. According to Abdul's publicist, the couple still remain on good terms.

They "still are friendly, though," Ballard tells E!

But apparently someone hasn't gotten the memo from Paula’s publicist.

When contacted by E! for comment, a rep for Torregiani insisted they are still dating.


Another Music Group to Reunite? : Lionel Richie pledges Commodores reunion

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Grammy award-winning pop singer Lionel Richie said Saturday that he and the Commodores will reunite soon for a tour.

Richie said a reunion could happen in the next two years.

"We better do it now, or in the next 10 years nobody would care," he told reporters before singing at Antigua's Romantic Rhythms festival.

Richie, 58, said it was important for the group to get together before it loses more band members. Lead guitarist Milan Williams died two years ago.

Richie was confident that synergy still existed between band members. He said Commodores' bass player Ronald La Pread joined him on stage during his last tour and played some of the group's old hits.

The Commodores were known for hits like "Three Times a Lady" and "Brick House."

Richie broke away from the Commodores in the late 1970s and topped the charts in the 1980s with songs like "Endless Love" and "Say You, Say Me."


Slow news weekend so far. Um...favorite Lionel Richie song or video or moment or picture?

motley crue sues former manager

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mötley Crüe has kick-started legal action against another former manager.

The "Shout at the Devil" purveyors have filed a lawsuit against Burt Stein and his companies B Entertainment and Gold Mountain Entertainment, alleging the companies screwed the band out of large sums of money by putting the manager's interests ahead of the Crüe.

The suit, filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court and a copy of which was obtained by TMZ, claims Stein, who also represents one of the individual bandmembers, "stalled and obstructed" talks Mötley Crüe had with various music-industry folk about recording a new album and hitting the road in 2008.

Among the other allegations, Stein also supposedly scheduled appearances and activities for one of the bandmembers that conflicted with the group's plans to record a new album and hit the road in 2008. He interfered with a separate deal the headbangers secured with a major promoter to headline a 2008 tour by scheduling separate events when the promoter was named as the "exclusive provider" of all Crüe activities on the date of the concerts.
Last but not least, Mötley Crüe accused the manager of misrepresenting the position of a bandmember and refusing to fulfill his fiduciary duties until his own demands were met.

Consequently, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx entered into a new agreement with a different management company to rep them, terminating their relationship with Stein.

Their complaint seeks a court declaration regarding both parties rights and duties and specifying that their old business partner has no right to receive any commissions from the quartet. The Crüe also asked for unspecified damages.

Reps for Stein and Mötley Crüe could not be reached for comment.

As it happened, Sixx and Mars, the band's respective bassist and guitarist, just settled a separate $20 million suit last month against Carl Stubner, a one-time comanager of the band.

The rockers alleged he became so involved in Lee's career that he damaged the band and drummer's heavy metal cred by having the latter appear on Rock Star: Supernova and Tommy Lee Goes to College, which took him away from rehearsals, recording and touring with the Crüe.

this is their first single off of their upcoming album

Pop Quiz: Katy Perry

Aidin Vaziri
Friday, June 13, 2008

Everybody is falling fast for Katy Perry, whose song "I Kissed a Girl" was just blocked from topping the iTunes Top 100 by those evil guys in Coldplay. Have you no heart, Chris Martin? This girl is sweet. Raised by pastor parents in Santa Barbara, she nearly became a Christian rock star as a teenager before coming to her senses, dying her hair black and defecting to the dark side of mainstream pop. Her first single, which was charmingly called "Ur So Gay," served as a kiss-off to an eyeliner wearing ex, and she will be spending her summer traveling the country with the sweaty, tattooed men of the Warped Tour. We spoke to the 23-year-old Perry shortly after she made a bizarre cameo on "The Young and the Restless." The Warped Tour takes place Saturday at Piers 30/32.

Q: Which executives at the record label came up with the idea to put you on a soap opera?

A: You know what? It wasn't their idea. It was a friend of mine who's helping give the show more edge. At first I was like, "Nah." And then the next week Snoop Dogg was on "As the World Turns." So I said, "Let's do it!" Snoop Dogg is my standard for everything in life.

Q: You must smoke an insane amount of pot.

A: Not anymore. I want to kill myself every time I do it. I think Snoop is just gangsta. He's not my role model, just my role model to do something new.

Q: Is "I Kissed a Girl" based on a real experience?

A: All of my songs are kind of like chapters from my brutally honest diary of my life. With that song, I was reading a magazine and opened it up to a picture of either Scarlett Johansson or Megan Fox, and I turned to my boyfriend and said, "You know, if they walked through the door and asked me to pucker up, I would just do it."

Q: He must have been so bummed.

A: He was.

Q: Is this the same guy from "Ur So Gay?"

A: Yeah, right.

Q: Do you always date guys who steal your makeup and jeans?

A: I date these very metro-sexual guys. I love that they're very emotional and communicative, but sometimes it's like, "Dude, I need my flatiron back, and you've used all my eyeliner."

Q: Would you ever hook up with an ugly guy?

A: Yeah, sure. I fall in love with the type of person. If they're a douche bag, I don't care if they look like David Beckham.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"No Country for Old Men" is still collecting awards.

The film — which won Oscars for best picture, screenplay and director — earned the inaugural "best campaign of the year" award at the 37th annual Key Art Awards, which honor the best movie posters, trailers and other marketing efforts.

The Key Art Awards, sponsored by the Hollywood Reporter, were presented Friday during a ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel.

The best-campaign award recognizes the collective creative materials to promote the film as well as the overall marketing strategy developed for its launch. A panel of experts that included filmmakers David Fincher and Kevin Smith picked "No Country" for the prize. The film also won three other awards including best trailer and best graphics.

"The Simpsons Movie" and "300" were the night's other big winners. "The Simpsons Movie" won four awards, including honors for its theatrical cardboard "standees" and its Web site design, while "300" was recognized for its print ads and TV spots.

"Bee Movie," "Ratatouille," "Juno" and "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" were each double winners.

Judd Apatow received the Visionary Award, which recognizes filmmakers who inspire marketing creativity.

Reese Witherspoon Enjoys Some Deacon Days

Reese Witherspoon enjoys some fun in the sun with her boy, Deacon, on a beach in Malibu on Friday afternoon.

Just yesterday, it was reported that Reese’s divorce from Ryan Phillippe was finalized. They opted for an uncontested divorce, which kept many of its particulars private. The documents, dated June 12, only read: “[The court finds] the parties have settled all their remaining issues in these proceedings.” The pair will have joint custody of their children Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4.

Ms. Witherspoon cited “irreconcilable differences” when she filed for divorce in November 2006 after seven years of marriage.

Reese, 32, is currently dating Jake Gyllenhaal, 27, while Ryan, 33, has been seeing Aussie actress Abbie Cornish, 25.

10+ pictures inside of Reese Witherspoon enjoying some Deacon days…

Reese looks cute i think, love her shorter hair.

Sara Evans Marries Her Football Hero

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Country star Sara Evans married former University of Alabama quarterback Jay Barker Saturday evening in an outdoor ceremony at a Franklin, Tenn., farm near Evans's home, PEOPLE reports exclusively.

Evans's son Avery, 8, walked his mother down the aisle, and the couple's seven children (Evans has three and Barker has four from their previous marriages) were their only attendants.

The short ceremony featured Nashville songwriter Marcus Hummon, a close friend of Evans's, singing "God Bless the Broken Road," the Rascal Flatts hit he wrote – a song that the couple says has deep meaning for their relationship. Christian minister Joe Beam, who was responsible for introducing the couple last fall, performed the ceremony.

Evans, 37, wore an ivory silk taffeta Vera Wang gown with a halter neck and Barker, 35, wore a Dolce and Gabbana suit. The black-and-white affair (guests were requested to wear black) was accented with hints of yellow roses, and the sophisticated décor was given a down-home twist with a menu catered by Constant Craving featuring Southern fried chicken, country-style pole beans, biscuits and macaroni and cheese.

Paul Burrell: I had sex with Princess Diana

Sick boast exposed by his wife's brother

Watch: Paul Burrell's Diana sex secrets

By Robert Jobson

DISGRACED royal butler Paul Burrell has plumbed shocking new depths of treachery, with vile boasts that he secretly BEDDED Princess Diana.

The slimy flunky bragged to his wife’s brother Ron Cosgrove that he was on call for sex 24/7. Ron told us: “Burrell said Diana was so demanding. And he told me he’d caught the Queen naked.”

Ron also reveals that after Diana’s death the butler spirited THREE bin liners out of Kensington Palace and hid them in his mother-in-law’s attic.

Millions of the tragic princess's fans worldwide will be enraged at the creepy butler's vile boast that he had to keep up with her round-the-clock demands for "kinky" sex.

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES: Paul & Maria pose for camera
And disgusted Ron—the FIRST of Burrell's close family circle to speak out—today tells all, incensed at how the slimy rat's scandalous treachery and lies have heaped disgrace and ridicule on them all.

Ron said: "That man has shamed us and made a fool out of my sister Maria. The final straw came when he was caught on video admitting how he lied to Diana's inquest. I hope I never see him again."

For 25 years furniture dealer Ron, 61, has had a ringside seat at Burrell's extraordinary rise from humble palace footman to millionaire celebrity. And he revealed how Diana's trusted servant dropped his bombshell story of sex with the boss over a drink at the local pub.

Incredible Hulk: Secret Set Diary

Incredible Hulk: Secret Set Diary
By now, everyone has seen that the new Incredible Hulk movie is off the chain, packed with explosions and fist fights and rocket launchers and all sorts of cool stuff! But who's responsible for all of that awesomeness? To get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the production, so we went straight to the source -- Edward Norton, star, writer and inventor of The Incredible Hulk. He graciously gave us full access to his diary, which he wrote in every day while he was on the set -- sometimes in the middle of filming a scene, warranting a complete cessation of activity until he had completed the day's entry. Let's read on, shall we? [Note: Mr. Norton's handwriting is not the tidiest in the world, so mistranslations should be expected. In fact, take all of this with a grain of salt.]
