BRANGELINA IS MARRIED
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have made it official! After years of will they or won't they speculation, it has been confirmed by a rep for the couple that they married on Saturday (August 23rd) at their home in France, Chateau Miraval in a small ceremony in front of family and friends.

The spokesman revealed that Pax and Maddox walked Angelina down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.

What They Wore:

  • Although Angelina's dress designer is not currently known, a source told E! News, "The gown was very traditional, but very Angie, it was comfortable but plain white floor-length antique lace and silk." The insider added, "The boys all wore tiny matching cream linen suits which were just like Brad's tux while the girls had each chosen a dress to match their own individual style and they had them specially made."

The Ceremony:

  • "Brad and Angie said hand-written vows telling each other how much they love each other and their beautiful family and they both had tears in their eyes as did everyone else. It was short but loaded with meaning and it was a lovely way to start life in their new family home now that the building work is finally finished."

The Party:

  • "They all went back into the main house into the 'Great Hall' and had a big celebration lunch with local hams, cheeses, freshly caught sea bass, Italian pastas and champagne, as well as Chateau Miraval rosé wine. There were three different types of cakes, all picked by the kids -- one was a strawberry ice cream one, another was a three chocolate gateau and a third had fresh cream and raspberries."

The Honeymoon:

  • As for the honeymoon, another source said, "The honeymoon was a few days enjoying Miraval and how much space they have now. The kids went quad biking and swimming on the afternoon of the wedding and that night they all had pizza in the garden. The whole thing was very Brad and Angie. They're low key and much more about romantic gestures than they are about having a big, flashy multi-million dollar wedding."
  • Brad was photographed wearing his new wedding ring at a photo call for his new film Fury in the UK earlier this week.
  • Pitt proposed to his new bridge back in 2012 with a ring he designed with Robert Procop.

HOLLYWOOD REACTS:

  • George Clooney told People, "How great is that? I’m really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family."
  • Bella Thorne tweeted, "OMG Brad and Angelina got married <3 <3 <3 #MRANDMRSSMITH"
  • Michael Ian Black tweeted, "Now that Brad and Angelina are married, I can FINALLY start worrying about when they're going to get divorced."
  • Mia Farrow tweeted, "Congratulations Angie & Brad!!! Now let's work for the day when everyone can get married."
  • Sandra Bernhard tweeted, "although they both lied to me on separate occasions I congratulate both #angelina and #brad i'll never forget our special time together."

HEALTH SCARE FOR JOAN RIVERS
Joan Rivers is currently in stable but critical condition after experiencing complications during throat surgery on Thursday morning (August 28th.)

A source told E! News, "They were putting a scope down her throat to check her vocal cords. She stopped breathing. This was not major surgery." Joan was sedated for the procedure but it is not currently known what drug was given to her. The NY Daily News is reporting that she has been placed under a medically induced coma and is expected to remain that way until this weekend when they will reportedly assess the damage that was done while she was deprived of oxygen.

  • She is currently being treated in the ICU of Mt. Sinai hospital in New York City.
  • A rep for the hospital released a statement saying, "This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to. Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support. We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available."
  • Melissa Rivers and her son Cooper took an early flight to be by her mother's side.
  • Witnesses say that the 81-year-old appeared to be in good condition during promotional appearances for her book, Diary of a Mad Diva.

NBC WOULDN'T AIR SUICIDE PREVENTION PSA AFTER ROBIN WILLIAMS EMMY TRIBUTE
NBC stands behind their decision not to air a PSA from the National Suicide Prevention Network following the tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys on Monday (August 25th.)

The network released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying, "Collectively we decided to celebrate the life of Robin Williams, not his death or, more to the point, the way he died. The Emmys telecast is a celebration, and the 'In Memoriam' section of our show is an important one." The statement goes on to say, "We believe we honored Robin in the right away. Suicide is a serious issue, but we decided not to dwell on that -- or its prevention -- in this particular forum."


REP SAYS REPORTS THAT TONY SOPRANO LIVED ARE FALSE
The recent reports that attempted to clear up the ambiguous ending of The Sopranos are apparently inaccurate. A rep for the show's creator, David Chase, has released a statement claiming that the original article on Vox "misconstrued" his words when they quoted him as saying "Tony Soprano is not dead."

The rep's statement reads, "A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, 'Tony Soprano is not dead,' is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, 'Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.' To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer."

  • The final scene of the series feature Tony and his family sitting down in a restaurant as a number of suspicious people enter. The screen cuts to black before anything else happens.

The Scene:


CELEBRITY GOSSIP
BLAKE LIVELY ATTACKED BY BEES: Blake Lively reveals in a new post on her lifestyle website that she was attacked by a swarm of bees prior to her 27th birthday on Monday (August 25th.) She wrote, "Just yesterday, the final day of the shoot, I felt an electric shock of energy --was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older...I think. But this felt terrible. Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell...then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting. As it happens, I wasn't being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere." Blake continued, "It wasn't until I covered the counters in coordinating candy sprinkles that I stopped to acknowledge: my butt will deflate more and more, my hands will shrivel and permanently prune, but I will never, ever grow up. It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age. Today it's 27, going on 2. How old will you bee today?"
