Country singer Carrie Underwood is going to marry real soon, according to source for The Awful Truth. She’s been engaged to hockey player Mike Fisher. Also, Megan Fox, who is not engaged, might marry on/off-again beau Brian Austin Green — he who had one of the least liked characters on the original 90210 TV series. E! Online says that someone close to the couple indicated that Brian had moved into the new 5-bdrm home Megan purchased in LA, and that they will get married. (I wonder how Brian puts up with the fact that Megan doesn’t like to cook or clean and has all these obsessive-compulsive quirks.) Now, there’s a bit more to the story. Before Megan came into his life, Brian was with another hottie, Vanessa Marcil (92010 and Las Vegas; pictured above), who mothered his child. Vanessa is now engaged to Carmine Giovinazzo (CSI:NY) but was once married Corey Feldman. (If I continue this line of thinking, Kevin Bacon will probably appear somewhere along the way, according to the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon concept.)
Singer Cheryl Cole, aka Cheryl Ann Tweedy, has filed for divorce from husband and soccer player Ashley Cole. Reason: “unreasonable behavior” of her estranged husband. I have no idea what that means (actually, it apparently means he was unfaithful) but she did once say that notorious celebrity meanie Simon Cowell was the most charismatic man she’s ever met (as per her IMDB profile). Just saying. She apparently wants a clean break and none of Ashley’s money. Just wondering if she’ll keep his last name, now that she’s had it for five years.
Oooops. Sarah Jessica Parker accidentally called husband Matthew Broderick average, while on David Letterman, then dug herself a deeper hole as she tried to explain that she was referring to his height, “not in personality, intellect, charisma, talent… Anyway he’s average in height as I understand, so the odds of our son being average in height and weight is perhaps promising.”
Radio/ television personality Art Linkletter, born Arthur Gordon Kelly in Moose Jaw, Canada, passed away yesterday at the age of 97. In addition to being appointed to President Richard Nixon’s national advisory council for drug abuse prevention (after one daughter’s suicide upon which he blames LSD), Linkletter was a talk-show pioneer, a motivational speaker and creator and/or host of several shows, including Kids Say the Darnedest Things (1998).
