Hollywood Weekend Weddings

Wedding bells were ringing again for 2 couples this weekend. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag from “The Hills” said their” I do’s” this weekend in front of 200 family and friends in California on Saturday afternoon. That is quite a change from the private ceremony they had together when they eloped to Mexico 5 months ago.  In attendance were Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner, Audrina Partridge and Kristin Cavallari to name a few. Now you might be thinking that Lauren Conrad said she would never be at their wedding and here she was. IT seems that everyone was a bit shocked. And then there was Brody Jenner and his ex Kristin Cavallari while Brody was there with his new girlfriend.awkward! The wedding was filmed so you will be able to see it for yourself on MTV sometime in the future. Should be interesting to see it all unfold. The other couple to celebrate with family and friends this weekend was Salma Hayek and her hubby Francois – Henri Pinault. The two got married Valentine’s Day at city hall but this time did it Hollywood style. They were married at the famous Venice Teatro La  Fenice Opera and were joined by many of their famous friends including, Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Ed Norton and Ashley Judd. Bono from U2 was there and even did a little singing for the bride and groom. They had 150 guests join them for the event and the party lasted until after 3:00 a.m.

Can Beyonce get any hotter these days? IN addition to touring, her new movie “Obsessed” came out this weekend and topped the charts as the #1 movie pushing aside Zac Efrons movie, “17 Again”. The movie is great and also stars Idris Elba and Ali Larter. It is all about a successful corporate man with the beautiful wife and who meets the beautiful temp who turns into crazy stalker girl. Sounds familiar but the 3 of them are great and Beyonce shines as always.  John Mayer and his love life are in the news again. This time he is setting the record straight and telling the paparazzi that he is not with anyone right now. Well good to know John thanks for sharing. In other news a Golden Girl passed away this weekend at the age of 86. Bea Arthur, known for her hit roles in sitcoms like “The Golden Girls” and “Maude” died in her home this weekend. She had been battling cancer. Her two co stars from “The Golden Girls” and the only 2 left, Betty White, who is 87 and Rue McClanahan who is 75, appeared on “The Today Show” to remember their dear friend.
The premiere of the new movie “X – Men Origins: Wolverine”, staring Hugh Jackman, was due to premiere in Mexico City this Wednesday. However it has been cancelled due to the swine flu outbreak there. Currently over 100 people have died and the government has asked its residents to stay home and they have shut down schools. Many movie theatres have also been shut down so of course canceling the premiere was the only option. Pretty scary.
Ending with a little love news…how cute is this? The two lovebirds from the movie “Slumdog Millionaire” are a real couple. Dev Patel is 19 and Freida Pinto is 24, and Patel’s mom says the couple is happy as can be.
