THE TALK OF TINSELTOWN -- EVERYBODY GOT HITCHED

Doctors started to take Joan Rivers out of her medically induced coma on Sunday. The process will probably take several days. Rivers, 81, has been in an induced coma since she stopped breathing during throat surgery last week. The family is asking for continued prayers and support during this difficult time.


A major celebrity phone hack occurred over the weekend. Nude photos of Kate Upton, Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, and others were leaked online. Some people are saying these ladies should know better. I think that's absurd. You take private photos with the notion that they'll stay private. I really hope they catch the asshole who did this.


Carrie Underwood is going to be a mama! She announced the news yesterday via Instagram. This will be the first child for Carrie and hockey hubby Mike Fisher. The couple married in 2010.


Actress Gabrielle Union and basketball player Dwayne Wade wed in Miami on Saturday. The bride wore a Dennis Basso gown. Wade proposed to Union in December after dating for four years. Gabrielle told Ellen DeGeneres back in February that her groom was handling most of the wedding planning. "This is his princess moment." How sweet!


Ashlee Simpson wed Evan Ross on Sunday at his mother's Connecticut estate. His mother is the one and only Diana Ross. Simpson was escorted down the aisle by her son Bronx. Sister Jessica served as matron of honor, and her children were the flower girl and ring bearer. Simpson was previously married to rocker Pete Wentz. This is the first marriage for Ross.


Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy also got married over the weekend. The ceremony took place on Sunday in the ballroom of the Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois. The pair was surrounded by close friends and family. Donnie proposed back in April. I know my opinion has no bearing on their marriage, but I just love them together.

I hate to keep complaining about women's boobs.
I'm no prude.

CAN YOU SEE MY BOOBS?
THEY'RE RIGHT HERE!
BOOBS. BOOBS. BOOBS.


KATHERINE HEIGL
Meryl Streep called.
She wants her dress back.

Just ok.

She looks beautiful though.
