Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, 35, will wed this weekend in California, has learned exclusively.

The pair are planning a small, intimate ceremony with only a few close friends and family.

Following the California Supreme Court's monumental ruling that same sex couple's have the "right to marry," DeGeneres announced she planned to wed her longtime girlfriend on a taping of her show in May.

"It's something that we've wanted to do and we want it to be legal and we are very, very excited," DeGeneres, 50, gushed.

DeGeneres reflected on their upcoming nuptials at the Daytime Emmy Awards in Hollywood in June.

"I think someday people will look back on this like women not having the right to vote and segregation and anything else that seems ridiculous that we don't all have the same rights," DeGeneres said.

Of the preparations, DeGeneres joked, "Planning a wedding is very stressful. It's crazy. My gardener is now invited."

DeGeneres and de Rossi began dating in December 2004.

"I feel like I found my perfect fit," DeGeneres said of de Rossi in an interview with the Advocate.

"She’s taught me lessons about myself, and I feel like I’ve taught her," DeGeneres added.

Singer Jewel, 34, and her boyfriend, rodeo star Ty Murray, 38, eloped last night in the Bahamas. The two have been together for over ten years. Jewel has said that she doesn’t “know if there’s a point” to marriage, because her relationship has lasted longer than some of her friends who have been married and divorced. She called what she has with Ty “really special,” though and said she would probably get married if she had kids. Can we expect an announcement soon?

People reports that Jewel was in a gown while Ty was comfortable in his favorite jeans, a white dress shirt and cowboy hat:

The singer and her longtime boyfriend, rodeo champion Ty Murray, eloped to the Bahamas and exchanged vows in a private ceremony Thursday night, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat,” says Jewel’s rep. “The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon.”

The pair, who never announced an engagement, have been together for ten years and share a 2,200-acre ranch in Stephenville, Texas. Murray, 38, who hosted Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull-Riding Challenge on CMT last year, currently stars in the video for his wife’s new country single, “I Do.”

At a charity event in Nashville days before the wedding, Jewel, 34, said of marriage, “It’s something that needs to be taken seriously.”

Just last year, she told PEOPLE that she and Murray were in no rush to wed.

“We don’t know if there’s a point – we’ve lapped our friends who’ve gotten married and divorced,” she explained. “We probably would if we had kids – we’re just not sure we want them yet. But we’ve had something really special already.”


Congratulations to Ty and Jewel! We probably won’t be seeing the pictures at all, but I love seeing photos of these small beach weddings and find them so romantic.

Jewel is best known as a multi-platinum pop singer, but she recently made the crossover into country music. Her first country CD, Perfectly Clear, came out on June 3. It is currently number 15 on the Billboard country music charts after a debut at number one.

Here’s Jewel’s aptly named video “I Do,” which features Ty:

This week’s National Enquirer states that Queen Latifah plans to marry her partner of five years, personal trainer Jeannette Jenkins, after the groundbreaking ruling in California that legalized same-sex marriages. Latifah has been notoriously tight-lipped about her relationship with Jenkins, and told Ebony Magazine that she was not going to comment on the rumor that Jenkins was her girlfriend. She didn’t deny it, she just got annoyed that someone even asked her the question:

“No comment on that at all. I’m done commenting on all that … It’s ridiculous, I know me and that’s all I need to know.

“And if the readers don’t know me, then that’s one part they aren’t going to get to know. Those are my people but they don’t sleep with me,” she says in a very even tone that is very consistent with her relaxed mood. “It feels so invasive. It’s the one thing I don’t think people need to know about.”

And she told Essence in September, 2006 ” “If I’m not going to tell you what guy I’m dating, I sure wouldn’t tell you I’m dating a girl.”

So if this is true, it’s a big step for Latifah, who’s never even mentioned Jeannette. She has a lot of high-profile endorsement contracts as well as her movie career, so maybe she fears a backlash if she comes out or just doesn’t think it’s anyone’s business. The Enquirer points out that Jeanette isn’t out, either, and that she “previously denied being gay and once claimed to be engaged to a man.”

In September of last year, Latifah bought Jeannette a new car, a Range Rover she had delivered to surprise her at a restaurant where they were having lunch.

The two are said to be “planning an intimate ceremony with close family and friends,” according to The Enquirer. Latifah has said she would like to adopt a child, particular an American baby, and this may be the first step toward showing her commitment to Jeannette and to providing a stable home life. Congratulations to Latifah and Jeanette if this is true.

I do not want to cover this story but I will do it anyways. Thats my job after all . See reactions from different sources on this wedding + Jessica simpson's slutty grinding action (girl has lost it).


Joe Simpson is a friggin' genius. Not only does he sell photo rights of his daughter's wedding to People, but also of Jessica Simpson drunk as shit at the reception – which makes the cover. Awww. Ashlee's wedding really was a magical princess fairy tale dream come true. For Joe Simpson. Except that part where his little girl married some asshat, whats-his-name? Right, Chins Magoo.


People Magazine has posted the cover of their upcoming issue with the super expensive photos of Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson‘s “Fantasy Wedding!” and it’s not the interesting. Ashlee and Pete have their fringed-banged heads together and are smiling like any pose you would see of the two of them on the red carpet. Ashlee wears a simple white veil and pearl drop earrings and Pete has on a tux with a white bow tie and a black rose corsage.

The best part of the photo isn’t newlyweds Ashlee and Pete, but the embarrassed-looking bulldog wearing a flouncy neck piece adorned with black beads. Jessica Simpson and her maybe ex-boyfriend, Tony Romo, are shown in an inset photo dancing at the reception, with Jessica pulling a wide-mouthed face while Tony laughs.

People reports that the reception was “the ultimate rocker event” and included 10,000 “black magic” roses, chandeliers and red and black decorations.

Ashlee wore “an ivory lace Monique Lhuillier gown and a cathedral-length veil” andPeople notes that the “nondenominational ceremony [was] officiated by her father, Joe Simpson.”

The event was attended by 150 guests, but you get to see it in People for the price of the magazine. It’s doubtful this issue will sell well enough to justify the reported $1 million that the photos were said to have cost. There’s not a lot of interest in these two, but we’re sure to see more of them as Ashlee’s pregnancy starts to show and they sell the inevitable first baby photos for an even steeper price.

Thanks to People for the header image.


Hemingway the bulldog looks like he's trying to hold in the vomit. Hemingway, don't look behind you or the chunks will start a flowing! Hell, don't look down either, Hemingway! Nowhere is safe.

Yes, it's Hemingway with two twats on the cover of People magazine. IfAsshole and Vagina in their wedding outfits doesn't make you barf, thenJessica Simpson bumping and grinding on Tony Romo will definitely bring on the heaves. Jessica thinks she's so fucking hot. Romo is laughing through the pain.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren apparently were married yesterday, according to People:

The couple quietly wed Monday, says her rep, Brad Cafarelli.
Alba, 27, is expecting a daughter with Warren, 31, this summer. The couple met while filming Fantastic Four and were engaged last December.

Quietly wed, huh? So does that mean no one talks through the whole service? Because that I like. And, shit, why stop there? How about no talking for the entire marriage? It'll be a relationship built on love and head gestures. But sometimes crying when I specifically nodded for mustard and not mayo. C'mon!

The Superficial silently congratulates the happy couple.

"He wants to [get hitched]," she told PEOPLE Thursday night at London's Nobu, where she showed up for a late-night snack with Madden and her parents. "We talk about it." 

In fact, she's already pondering her gown: "I'd wear a beautiful white dress," she said dreamily, "probably Dolce & Gabbana."

The heiress, who is in town promoting her new fragrance, Can Can, couldn't stop gushing about her new beau. 

"We are the perfect match," said the 27-year-old (who begins filming her MTV reality show, I Wanna Be Paris's New Best Friend! on Monday). "We don't like being apart, we like to stay with each other as much as we can." 

No stranger to marriage proposals, Hilton said that Madden, 29, was different from her previous boyfriends, including ex-fiancés Jason Shaw and Paris Latsis. 

"[Benji] is very down to earth," she said. "He's worked very hard on his own. He really has a heart of gold. He'd never do anything to hurt me. He loves and supports me no matter what. He's a really great person."

Cynthia Nixon‘s romance with her girlfriend of four years caught a lot of people by surprise. And it’s no wonder – Nixon had been with her boyfriend for fifteen years, had two kids with him, and had never before been with a woman. But when you fall in love, you fall in love. Nixon says that while she never had any desire to marry her boyfriend, she’d marry girlfriend Christine Marinoni if she could do so legally.

“If it becomes legal, I think we would,” Cynthia tells The Mirror. “It’s something my girlfriend is interested in and it was not something my boyfriend ever was. I think that to get married to her would be a little act of rebellion. It’s like if you’ve never had the vote and then you get it you’re going to run out there and vote.”

Always “very wary” of marriage, the 42-year-old admits she consciously avoided exchanging vows with Danny Mozes, her boyfriend of 15 years and father of her children, Samantha, 11, and Charles, 5, because “I felt like it was potentially a trap. People sometimes want the party, the gifts and the public celebration of this big love – they’re excited about that rather than about the lifetime commitment,” Cynthia says. “So I always steered clear of it.”

She continues, “I had been with men all my life and I had never met a woman I had fallen in love with before. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. “I don’t define myself. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.”

[From OK! Magazine]

Cynthia also said she never felt the need to come out of the closet, because she never felt that she was in a closet. The way she says it is a little unclear in terms of her orientation, but the way she speaks openly about love is really beautiful. She notes, “I met this woman and I fell in love with her. In terms of my sexual orientation, I don’t really feel that I changed. I don’t feel any different than I did before.”

It is interesting that she says she’d probably want to marry, but phrases it, “It’s something my girlfriend is interested in…” instead of saying it’s something both she and Christine are interested in. The phrasing makes it sound more like it’s something her girlfriend wants to do, and Nixon’s okay with going along with it. But obviously if she’s talking so publicly about it, one would assume she’s pretty into the idea. That could make for a pretty interesting reality “Sex & the City” show.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Cynthia Nixon, Christine Marinoni, and Cynthia’s children Charles and Samantha are shown at a fundraiser at Central Park Zoo on 6/12/06. Cynthia Nixon is shown at the London Sex and The City premiere yesterday, thanks to WENN.
