Mom-to-be Jessica Alba and Cash Warren have gotten married, PEOPLE confirms. The couple quietly wed Monday, says her rep, Brad Cafarelli. According to a source, they were married in the Beverly Hills courthouse's ceremony room under an arch of green silk foliage and white flowers. They were casually dressed, with Alba wearing a long blue dress and her hair back in a ponytail. "She looked happy but nervous," the source says. Warren, in a white shirt and brown pants, arrived with Alba at about 11:30 a.m. on Monday, applied for a marriage license and waited about 40 minutes for the paperwork to be processed before a staff member from the courthouse married them, the source says. Nobody else attended the wedding, the source adds.
Not the most romantic wedding we've heard about lately but they successfully managed to get married without anyone finding out about it until they were ready to make the announcement. They may have sacrificed pomp and circumstance for complete privacy but knowing how Jessica Alba tends to be ... it sounds like the perfect ceremony for the couple. Much congrats, Cashica ... may you have a long and very happy marriage. [Source]

You may recall that commercials for Covet feature a scary-ass SJP breaking into a boutique to get at a bottle of the fragrance because she just "had to have it". Lovely was advertised with a photo of SJP looking lost, confused and deranged. Clearly, her frangrances are marketed towards the insane woman who wants to smell nice. Well, at least SJP still has that Carrie Bradshaw thing to fall back on. [Source]
The woman is brave as hell to keep attempting moves like this ... on live TV. Of course, the story would be much more interesting if she ended up landing on her head instead of on her feet but she deffo gets props for pulling off this ridiculousness. I think she should quit while she's ahead, tho ... better safe than in traction. [Source]

Now ... that's a big dress. I understand that Angelina is having twins but this dress seems a bit ... much ... especially when you consider the not-quite-as-large outfits that she has been wearing just this week. At least Ange has a great excuse for wearing something this ... flowy. Bea Arthur had no such excuse when she wore fashions like this as Dorothy on The Golden Girls ... except for the excuse that she was faboo as hell. [Source]
I quite liked The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe so I was excited to see this new installment. I must admit, the movie is very true to the book but I did find that it lagged a bit thruout most of the run time. At over 2 hours long, the movie doesn't have much action in it. There is a lot of story but not much excitement. I'm not a fan of the not-so-subtle Christian references in the film (which made it feel a bit preachy, especially when the lion Aslan was guilting everybody for not believing in him) but overall, it was very solid and very entertaining. If you're a fan of the book then I think you're gonna love this movie. If you've never read the book nor seen the first Narnia movie (like Mike) then you might end up falling asleep repeatedly, missing out on most of the movie (ahem, like Mike ;) I enjoyed, it is deffo worth seeing.
Here is a cute pic of our foursome in front of the fountain at The Grove after the movie was finished:
Tonight, Jim and I are going to a midnight screening of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ... which I'm very excited for. I have a few more things to take care of before I fly off to NYC for the weekend ... thankfully the weather is beautiful outside to spurn me along on my tasks :)
- Did dirty dog Mutt Lange cheat on Shania Twain?
- Sad news: Senator Ted Kennedy reveals he has a brain tumor.
- R. Kelly finally goes on trial ... for real this time ... I think.

- It's horrible news like THIS that can result from barring same-sex couples from living normal lives together :(
- THIS is how you win Dancing with the Stars.
- Joss Stone does gay for pay.

- Busta Rhymes is 36, Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life) and Tom Gorman of Belly are 42, Bronson Pinchot is 49, Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's is 50 and Cher is 62 years old today. Click HERE to see who else is celebrating a birthday today.

And just like with the Mimi and Nick photo, I'm sure that People will only be releasing the cover of their new issue which will, most likely, feature the Ashl33n wedding pic. I wonder how much of People's money that Papa Joe Simpson is walking around with in his pockets these days. [Source]

Awww ... seriously, these folks are too damn cute for words. If they aren't spending a perfect afternoon at a park, then they are spending a perfect afternoon on a playground or a perfect afternoon at the zoo ... or a perfect afternoon at the beach. Gwen should be birthin' her new baby sometime this year -- my guess, she'll be havin' a girl to add to the perfection -- and I just can't *wait* to see her little family grow. Even tho it's a bit nauseating, I do love seeing happy pics of this perfect little family enjoying life together. [Source]

You know, I'm *sure* that this second photo isn't what it looks like ... I'm sure VB just dropped her lipstick onto the floor and went down to pick it up .... yeah, that sounds about right :)
Here are a couple other new pics of Becks tooling around town in his new toy:

Awww ... isn't it cute when Becks fancies himself a big dawg by driving around in his black Jeep while wearing a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses? I expect that Becks will be spending the summer in his new wheels ... apparently, this is how he rolls.
Life & Style has exclusively obtained the gorgeous invitation for Ashlee & Pete's wedding, and a photo of the parting gift for guests. The red and black invitation for the May 17 nuptials reads:
"It's getting late so save the date: Ashlee & Pete, join us May 17, 2008, Los Angeles. Transportation will be provided to the wedding. You will be contacted with additional information."
In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that donations be made to Invisible Children, a nonprofit group the couple has been involved in for more than a year. This invitation was part of a text message and email campaign the couple hurriedly put together before their wedding to let guests know of their special day. As for a parting gift for guests, on their way out of the wedding, they received Alice in Wonderland-inspired cookies (wrapped in a box within a box) that read "Eat me."
A cookie? That is all that wedding guests were given as a parting gift from the wedding? No wonder one of the guests decided to sell their damn cookie and invitation to a weekly tabloid magazine (who, I think, was being generous with the compliments by describing the invitation as "gorgeous"). I dunno ... couldn't the wedding guests have walked away with a nice centerpiece or something? Anything better than a cookie? C'mon ya'll ... the cookie is kinda lame. [Source]

Are these two a hot new couple? Is this a ploy to generate buzz for both artists who have just recently released new albums? I hate to be a pessimist but something tells me these pics are more about the latter than the former. Aubrey doesn't strike me as the kind of girl that would go for a youngster like Jesse ... bless his heart tho, I don't blame him for mackin' on Miss O'Day! I find it hard to believe that anything will come of this new union ... but just in case, should I put the name O'Jesse on hold? [Source]

From the looks of the photos that came out of Costa Rica this weekend, Britney really had herself a good ol' time with her family and friends. Not once did we see her with Mel Gibson (who hosted the Britney Bunch at his Cosat Rican compound) but I understand that he was available to "counsel" our dear Britney in between all the fun. I'm not a Mel Gibson fan -- by any means -- nor am I a fan of his beliefs but I can appreciate that he has reached out to help Britney get her life in order and can be commended on that front. As long as Britney continues to heal her life, I can be happy with how she goes about with that healing. I imagine Britney is anxious to spend time with her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, which might account for her return to LA. Welcome back, Britney ... we've missed you :) [Source]

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse marked her first wedding anniversary to Blake Fielder-Civil with a lonely fish and chip supper after visiting her husband in prison. The couple spent their anniversary apart on Sunday after Amy chose to join troubled rocker Pete Doherty at a charity football tournament in south east London. After missing a prison visit on Friday due to the traffic, Amy abandoned her usual scruffy clothes and dressed up in a pencil skirt and v-neck black top as she dropped by Pentonville Prison for a belated anniversary meeting. Amy usually visits Blake in a pair of high-heels, but opted for her signature ballet bumps for the afternoon trip. Amy and Blake have spent seven months of their brief marriage apart due to the former music video assistant's incarceration as he awaits trial for GBH and attempting to pervert the course of justice. The troubled singer, 24, paid tribute to her husband by placing a cushioned heart with the name Blake splashed across it in her famous beehive. After marking their first year as husband and wife in the visiting room of Pentonville in north London, Amy left the prison beaming to photographers. She stopped off at a local fish and chip for a greasy supper-for-one, which she sadly wasn't able to share with her husband. A change from her usual moody demeanor of recent weeks, an ecstatic Amy looked thrilled to be married for a year, despite the couple's tumultuous 12 months.
I gotta say, kudos to Amy Winehouse for deciding to stay married to her jailbird husband who was forced to leave her after only a few months of wedded bliss. The couple have spent the majority of their marriage apart and yet, here they are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Perhaps Amy Winehouse is smarter than us all ... perhaps she has figured out the secret to a long and happy marriage? (Perhaps Pete Doherty has found his true calling as a marriage counselor?) In any event, Happy Anniversary Amy & Blake ... you've lasted longer than, I'm sure, most everyone on planet Earth anticipated. [Source]
