The Crowe's break up, Justin gets new shoes and Tyra's forehead are front and center in this week's Celebrity Gossip.
Alfonso Ribeiro gets married.
Former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" actor, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks) and his fiancée, writer Angela Unkrich enjoyed a wonderful wedding day in front of 175 friends and family last week. The couple was reportedly said to be beaming and blissful as they exchanged vows during a picturesque California sunset. Guests included former "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" contestant Joey Fatone and Ribeiro's former "Silver Spoons" co-star Ricky Schroeder.
It's all over now for Russell Crowe and Daniel Spencer.
Their announcement came hot on the heels of some major Hollywood breakups last week, but did Danielle Spencer have some help dancing away from husband, Russell Crowe, after nine years of marriage? Not true, says her former dancing partner from Australia's "Dancing with the Stars." Professional dancer Damien Whitewood has reportedly denied that, while Spencer confidentially alluded to trouble in the marriage after the show, he – nor the seductive gyrations of ballroom dancing – had anything to do with the couple’s split. Both Crowe, who is currently filming "Noah" in the U.S. and Spencer, share two children, and are said to have made the decision to separate an amicable one and have yet to comment.
The Rolling Stones reunited and it feels so good.
Mick Jagger and his Rolling Stones will be celebrating the bands 50th Anniversary with a comeback concert beginning in London and then later heading to the U.S. The iconic rockers made their announcement via YouTube, at first teasing the fans and then later confirming their plans to tour. It will be the first time in five years that they have performed together.
Brad Pitt's peculiar perfume pitch.
It is said that laughter is the best medicine and so it is fitting that the latest Chanel No. 5 campaign featuring Brad Pitt would prescribe uncontrollable gales of mirth. Certainly we are not expected to take this seriously! Earlier this week Chanel unveiled its iconic fragrance commercial set against a neutral backdrop with the goateed actor reciting a poem. Whether the lyrics were about the perfume or some imaginary lover, one wonders what the Oscar-nominated actor was thinking – maybe, that it was 'inevitable,' that when he signed to do this commercial it was bad 'luck,' not in his 'fate' and wouldn't bring him 'fortune.'

It's a boy and a girl for the X-Factor!
Lopez and Kardashian. Mario and Khloe. The rumour mill worked overtime when it was reported weeks ago that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez ("The Bold And The Beautiful's" ex-Dr. Christian Ramírez) were being courted to host "The X Factor" reality show. Sources are now saying what we already thought we knew – that both stars have signed on for the second season and will make their appearance during the live rounds in November.
Justin Bieber is footloose and fancy free.
He's already conquered a fragrance so why not the next best thing – shoes! Justin Bieber has reportedly inked a two-year deal with Adidas’ younger NEO label to be their new global style icon. The 18-year old pop star is reported to have noted Adidas' creativity and freestyle sensibilities, saying the partnership was a perfect match. The ad campaigns have yet to air, but fans can look forward to shopping for select styles with the Bieber stamp of approval.
Demi can’t catch a break.
Actress Demi Moore is allegedly so green with envy and upset over ex-hubby Ashton Kutcher's flourishing romance with actress Mila Kunis that her friends are afraid she'll become depressed. If reports are to be believed one wonders where is the G.I. Jane that we all remember? You'll recall that shortly after their split was announced amid rumors of Ashton's cheating, Demi fell into an emotional tailspin that landed her in the hospital supposedly due to prescription drug abuse. With Ashton's recent status as television's highest paid actor according to Forbes
magazine, Mila's Sexiest Woman Alive crowning by Esquire
magazine and frequent photographs of them canoodling together it would seem that Demi just can't catch a break.
Baby news for Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green!

Talk about literally keeping a baby under wraps! Actors Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green have spent the last few weeks privately enjoying their newest bundle of joy – on September 27, Fox gave birth to the couple's son, named Noah Shannon. The announcement was made on Facebook by Fox herself, who along with Green have been successfully tight-lipped about their June 2010 marriage and subsequent pregnancy. This is Green's, second child (he has a son named Kassius with former "General Hospital" actress Vanessa Marcil) and the first child for Fox.
Jessica and Justin going to the chapel.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are allegedly set to tie the knot this Saturday in Italy. The couple has been dating for five years and has been engaged since last December. Guests and family members are reportedly being asked to sign confidentially agreements and are unaware of the venue in an effort to keep the nuptials as private and secretive as possible. Apparently, all the stops are coming out for the wedding which is costing a reported $6.5 million.
J-Lo and all that bouncing around.
Singer, actress and dancer Jennifer Lopez, who is currently on tour in Europe, is facing increased scrutiny as a result of the skin-tight cat-suit she's been wearing on stage. First, it was the Spanx she is alleged to have worn under her sequined stage outfit, now it’s the brief nipple exposure during her recent performance in Bologna, Italy. Jennifer played her most recent wardrobe malfunction cool and, after a slight adjustment, continued her energetic performance.
Did Robert and Kristen break up to make up?
Photos showing Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart back together are reportedly circulating the Web, causing speculation as to whether the couple has actually reunited or are simply playing nice as they get set to promote "Breaking Dawn: Part 2." Rumor has it that Kristen Stewart is nervous about making nice with Robert Pattinson's family after the cheating scandal that imploded their relationship a few months ago. Robert Pattinson, it seems, has openly forgiven her – judging by the alleged photos of them having lunch together in Hollywood. But wasn’t he seen just last week with an unidentified female in New York City? Is RPat playing the field?
Flavor Flav arrest:
According to online reports, entertainer, Flavor Flav had an violent altercation with his fiancée, Elizabeth Trujillo and her son in their home in Las Vegas, Nevada. The couple fought over accusations of infidelity. The rapper allegedly threw Trujillo to the floor, snatched a couple of knives, chased her and then threatened to kill her son. Trujillo called 911 and when the police arrived, the hip-hop and reality TV star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Dratyon Jr. was arrested and jailed on $23,000 bail bending an initial court appearance Thursday. If convicted, he could face up to six years in prison for assault.
Tyra's new TV show?
Tyra Banks may be bringing her life story to television in an autobiographical comedy series about her teen struggles before she became a supermodel. The "America’s Next Top Model" host is reportedly set to produce the series called "Fivehead" for the ABC network. So where does the show’s name come from? Apparently, Tyra's forehead is something of an eighth wonder of the world – Fivehead was the nickname she earned in high-school.
Bottle that baby smell, Nick.
What millions of mothers around the world already knew is apparently catching on – there's nothing like the smell of a newborn baby. Singer Nick Lachey is reportedly so smitten with his son Camden, with wife Vanessa Minillo, that he regularly sniffs his head and neck. Both are first-time parents. Lachey is also said to be back in the studio working on soothing songs inspired by his little boy.
Lindsay and Barbara to chat.
If Lindsay Lohan needs a good, hard talking to perhaps the best person for the job is journalist and "The View" host, Barbara Walters. After Lohan talked to TMZ directly
, where she tried to set the facts straight about the explosive night when her father called 911 to supposedly rescue her from her supposedly high-on-drugs mother, Dina, Lohan is reportedly ready to sit down with Walters in a taped interview over the next couple of weeks. Will she cry? She could spill tears of happiness at her recent unbanning from the Chateau Marmont where a year ago she was barred because of an unpaid bill, or maybe squeal in delight at a new baby soon to be in the family (Dad Michael and his girlfriend, Kate Major are expecting), or she could speak about her role as Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic "Liz & Dick" which is reportedly set to premiere right about the same time as the interview with Walters.
