Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not a happy couple. It’s not rocket science. It started as a torrid affair and blossomed into a very ugly thing. Sorry. that is my complete honest opinion. I don’t have any ill will towards either of them and they are both incredible actors who are among the best in their industry. They have also both been voted the “Sexiest Alive” this, “Most Beautiful” the other and “World’s Sexiest” whatever, multiple times over. The problem is that every time you see Brad Pitt’s face in a current photo, it screams “Someone save me.”
Yes, there are multiple photos of the couple happy and ecstatic, but hey, prescription drugs are available to everyone. Brad Pitt is trapped in a relationship with a very beautiful woman that he simply doesn’t love. And now he’s even more cemented in with multiple children that would prove to be very costly to run from. One of which (Shiloh) desperately wants to be a boy according to Vanity Fair’s latest interview with Jolie. Are we really making an issue of a child that is having an identity crisis in thathousehold? How any of them have their head screwed on straight is beyond me. This includes Brad who jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.
In the interview, Jolie also mentions that the two of them don’t feel any need to get married because it feels like they already are. I’m going to cry wolf here and wager a bet that Pitt doesn’t want to get married because it will cost a lot more when he finally finds his package and walks into the sunset.
Surely I can’t be the only one who sees the strain of a bad relationship gone very, very bad. Angelina puts on a good face, but she is a loon. Brad Pitt doesn’t love her. I just can’t see it in his face. I even strive to find it. Not there. Empty like a cave of woe. I just think that he got his wires crossed during their affair and as he was running away, he realized that he left his heart with Jennifer Aniston.
It’s like getting to the airport late and realizing that you left your luggage at home but you can’t go back and get it. You still go on the trip, but new clothes are very expensive and they don’t fit like the ones you had. And you can’t wait to get back to your stuff again and resume life as normal, but you’ve bought way too many clothes and all of them are non-refundable. So you just cancel your flight back and keep buying clothes. hm. sad.
Fall is a very popular time for weddings. primarily because of the weather and that nature masterfully weaves its color palette into stunning displays of oranges, yellows, reds and browns. It’s natures best color coordinated season of the year. Brides simply love this season and here are some great ideas to accentuate your fall wedding planning.
Make sure that wherever you host your wedding, that it’s somewhere that is accented by the natural beauty of the season. A quiet Victorian style church surrounded by trees in their fall colors makes for some incredibly brilliant wedding photo opportunities. Mountain settings are simply stunning if you can get your location reserved before that other bride does!
2) Set the Tone
It’s good to plan ahead and make your guests aware of your fall themed wedding in advance. This may help to steer them in their choice of fashion accessories such as maple leaf broaches or autumn color handkerchiefs. Set the pace by sending our leaf save the date cards or wedding invitations with a fall or autumn feel to them. There are tons of wedding invitations places online including Rexcraft, Invitations By Dawn, Get Married and many more.
3) Fall decorations
It’s also important to make sure that your guests can enjoy the seasonal colors whether they are inside or out by decorating the tables with centerpieces that use colorful leaves, straw, dried flowers, and pumpkin colors. Keeping within the brown and yellow spectrum of colors will be eye catching. Small details like using a Leaf Guestbook or maple leaf place card holders make very dramatic statements. Handmade tablecloths and doilies also give a small town feel that adds a nice touch.
4) Fall wedding favors
Give your guests fall wedding favors that will help them to remember the occasion. They may not remember details, but when they get to take home fall themed wedding favors like copper leaf bottle stoppers, place card holders, or simply any of the many ideas that are available out there, you give them a point of reference to remember the occasion. If leaves or pumpkin type gifts aren’t your style, at least try and manage to stick to your color palette.
5) Dress Color
In some people’s eyes, the only potential downside to a fall wedding is the dress color. An off white wedding dress is normally a safer bet with fall weddings. primarily because a bright white dress can clash with your fall motif. Be sure to stick to the color coordination since you are the focal point of the day. If you’ve inherited a white dress or refuse to walk down the aisle in anything but white, it won’t ruin the day, but it’s that attention to detail that will set the bar. Also ensure that the wedding party and especially bridesmaid dresses will help to support your color choices.
Your fall wedding menu should highlight food of the autumn season with selections like pumpkin pie, pecan pie, squash, zucchini, and apple cider with cinnamon sticks. Don’t forget your vegetarian guests as well. Likewise your wedding cake should also have fall colors and decorations incorporated into layers or decorations. Placing the cake on a light brown or dust yellow tablecloth surrounded by leafs would be a great eye catcher.
7) Everyone knows
Out of all of the great fall wedding tips that are available out there, be sure that you keep the color coordination on the top of everyone’s mind. Let your wedding planner know your plans so that they can inform all of the right people and monitor the situation for you. The caterer needs to know that you want your menu seasonal so that they can plan accordingly. It’s just very important that everyone is aware of your autumn motif to make sure that they don’t add something to the mix to clash with your flow and feel of fall.
Make sure that whoever is in charge of decorating, that they keep the lighting subdued and not bright white. All of your colors can get washed away in bright white light. Keep lighting off-white or yellow to keep the ambiance flowing even in the air. If the DJ will be supplying lighting as well, be sure that they know of your color plans so that their “disco lights” don’t ruin everything you worked so hard to create. But more importantly, be sure to let your wedding photographer know about the yellow lighting since yellow plays havoc on white balance. It’s best they know as far in advance as possible.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green rushed off to Hawaii to make it official in a small ceremony of friends and family. This is not a typical Hollywood or L.A. relationship though since the two have been together since 2004 which is like a decade in Tinseltown years. They dated and stayed together for over 6 years which is very impressive and shockingly normal. They met on the set of the show Hope and Faith and even years later still look to be blissfully happy together. This is the first marriage for both of them, but Brian has a child with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Marcil.
TMZ just posted photos of the couple finally showing off their wedding rings on a beach excursion (shown here). There are some Hollywood relationships that seem doomed from the start, but considering that the couple have stayed in a healthy relationship for years before hitching the wagon is a fantastic jumpstart. All I can say is congratulations. Where the heck are the wedding photos?
Regardless of whether or not you throw the perfect beach wedding, some things are completely out of your control. Especially oil washing up on the shore or bad odors wafting through the air of your picture perfect day. Such is the case with people’s beach weddings that happen to take place in the Gulf. While most places are still relatively unscathed, oil is now showing up on the shores of Panama City Beach essentially ruining plans for a lot of brides while some are holding tight to their dreams and hoping for the best. MSN did an interesting piece today asking brides about how they feel about how the oil spill is affecting them personally.
Reports are showing that thousands of weddings have been canceled although local businesses in Louisiana, Alabama and now Florida are furious about those reports claiming that while the situation is serious, it’s way too soon to change plans and overreact. Most brides jumped ship on their plans primarily concerned about there being a problem with dead sea life washing up on shore or the potential for bad odors due to the oil. Nothing ruins a wedding faster than dead fish or bad odors. While there’s a second camp that say everyone should continue supporting the locals, those businesses also understand that the aforementioned problems would certainly take away from the ambiance of a wedding day, but stand by their claims that it’s not as bad as people think it is on the shore and there is a lot of truth to the fact that not all areas are affected by this. BP has already dished out over 2 billion dollars fighting the problem and supporting those local businesses affected by the catastrophe.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton caught a lot of flack for a photo that wasn’t even real and could even possibly do jail time. Hilton posted a “upskirt” photo of Miley Cyrus on his website and even linked to it from his Twitter account to help publicize it. The upskirt part of the photo was real which was taken as she exited a vehicle very “un-ladylike” according to Perez. The problems started when the photo was doctored to make it look like she wasn’t wearing any underwear.
In L.A., this is typically referred to as “marketing” as practiced by the likes of Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton (no relation). The issue however is that Miley is a mere 17 years old which is very, very illegal and magically transforms from “marketing” into the realm of “child pornography”. Even though Perez admitted that the photos were doctored, he is not at all apologizing simply arguing that she shouldn’t have gotten out of the car like that.
Meanwhile, authorities are now involved, but let’s take a moment here to get real. No one should forget that Miley is not the all innocent role model that people are swooned into believing she is. She is certainly more of a role model than the aforementioned upskirt stars, but even some of the non-nude photos that were posted are pretty risque on her part. Not to mention the uproar over her Vanity Fair photo shoot taken when she was an even younger 15 years old. She is desperately trying to escape the world of Hannah Montana and photographs like the one shot by Hilton will certainly fast track that journey into adulthood. Does anyone really believe that Miley isn’t aware of what will happen when she gets out of a car inappropriately when photographers are swarming around her vehicle? Be honest with yourself. I’m not saying she was aware either way, but it certainly seems suspect a mere week before her new album release.
I am also certainly not condoning Perez Hilton’s behavior or the fact that he is a sleazebag who frequently posts hand drawn obscenities and drawings of penises onto celebrity photos. Intentionally taking a photo up the skirt of a minor is most definitely crossing the line and I personally think he should be harshly punished for his actions. Maybe he may actually get his wish of spending quality time alone with a bunch of men. Here’s hoping…
The stories have been hot and heavy about the greatly anticipated engagement of Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper. Unfortunately, they aren’t true. While the two are most certainly dating, the rumor mills just couldn’t stop speculating. The madness started when Renee Zellweger was spotted searching for wedding dresses and then to make matters worse was then spotted with Bradley Cooper dining with her parents.
The beautiful couple had starred together in the film Case 39, and started dating back in July 2009, so they are creeping up on a year together which in Hollywood relationships is practically common law marriage. Regardless, Bradley gets a kick reading about how his love life is going from the tabloid rags, but reps from both parties say NO to saying YES.
As you know, we try and find the most intriguing wedding engagements of your favorite celebrities to see if any of it is true. We try to be as good as Get Married’s Wedding Dish, but that’s a heck of a pinnacle to reach. But we’ll try for now.

1) Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
We covered this previously a couple of weeks ago and we said that not only was singer/pianist Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz engaged, but that she also looked pregnant to us. We were right! I love it when we’re right. This will be Swizz Beatz second marriage. His first marriage just recently came to an end and he has a child from the relationship. The ink on his first divorce is barely dry, but if you’re going to have a fall back girl, Alicia Keys is a fantastic catch. Alicia has never been previously married, but also has never been pregnant. We’re sure that the two will make beautiful music together both in and out of the studio, but it’s still shocking that she accepted all of the drama that will come with this. The couple will get married in France this coming July.
2) Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton
Country music has its collection of hot women and hot guys, but no one saw that two of their hottest stars would decide that they needed to be together. So is the case with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton who quietly got engaged last month in the, um,…woods. Blake proposed to Miranda while they were in the woods in Tishomingo, Oklahoma which is where she lives. See? I told you people actually lived in Oklahoma. In towns called Tishomingo. Either way, the couple did the dating thing behind the curtains and when they came out, they were happily engaged to be married. No wedding date has been set and the engagement is confirmed by both parties.
3) Joanna Garcia and Nick Swisher
The Gossip Girl’s Joanna Garcia aka Bree Buckley, gets engaged to NY Yankee outfielder Nick Swisher aka Nick Swisher. It apparently happened a month ago and they attempted to keep it quiet, but Joanna couldn’t keep a very good secret as she started going out and about with that huge rock on her finger. Garcia is obviously a hot commodity since she was previously engaged to Justin Timberlake’s business partner Trace Ayala. Not certain what happened there, but it appears that it didn’t work out for them. Either way, Joanna and Nick have been together since September of last year and it looks like it is ON! Just like that huge rock on her wedding digit.

4) Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower
Their real names may not be familiar to many, but their characters are. Bonnie Wright plays Ginny Weasley in the uber-popular Harry Potter movies and Jamie Campbell Bower plays Caius in the Twilight Series: New Moon film. Now that we’re on the same page, the more shocking revelation is that Bonnie Wright is a mere 19 years old. While that may be “over the hill” in a secluded Indian tribe, it’s kind of scary in the normal populated world. But love is love and they certainly are financially stable enough to support themselves, so go on you crazy kids. As long as you don’t have to live in your parents basement, knock yourselves out. Their relationship began in October of 2009 and it’s believed that Jamie proposed back in April although it’s just coming to light now. Sources close to the couple say that they are madly in love. And for those of us who are over 40, we can now roll our eyes as we recall how madly in love we would get back in our teens. I barely remember names. Not saying that it’s not the real deal, but a step on the brakes may be appropriate to slow this bus down a little. Stay engaged until you’re old enough to legally have a drink with the girls and then make that jump. Either way, they are engaged and on our list.
5) Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale
After a long abusive and drug riddled marriage to rocker Eddie Van Halen, Valerie Bertinelli filed for divorce and walked away from over 2 and half decades of a marriage that most of America saw as a match made in idol heaven. The world’s most well known rock guitarist married to the world’s best known TV actress (at the time). I personally think that she is still mega hot. As we covered a couple of weeks back, after the divorce, Valerie then began a relationship with Tom Vitale who was her financial planner. That’s a good person to have on your side in a divorce of that magnitude. Tom proposed to Valerie during a trip they took to Florence Italy. He was extremely nervous even though he had no reason to be since Valerie was extremely excited and quickly accepted. No decisions have been made as to when or where the two will tie the knot, but Valerie is certainly ready for a fresh new start and Valerie says that Tom will do most of the wedding planning since he’s very into that and probably wants to keep an eye on the purse strings.
