Mark Zuckerberg may have had an intimate, backyard wedding, but there was at least one famous name on the modest guest list.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong performed at Zuckerberg's Palo Alto, Calif., nuptials on Saturday, People reports.

"They've been friends for some time," a source close to the musician tells People of Zuckerberg and Armstrong. "He wasn't paid. It was a total impromptu wedding present for a friend."

But it wasn't the only surprise of the day.

Although newlyweds Zuckerberg, 28, and wife Priscilla Chan had been planning their nuptials for more than four months, the ceremony came as a shock to friends, who thought they were coming over for a surprise party in celebration of Chan's UCSF medical school graduation.

The couple, who met while attending Harvard before Zuckerberg -- who is now worth more than $19 billion -- started Facebook, have been dating for nine years.

Nick Stahl is getting treatment -- and the real work is beginning.

"Now that he is safe, it's time to focus back on healing," his wife, Rose Stahl, tells People.

On May 9, Rose reported to the LAPD that her husband, who starred in "Terminator 3," was missing. She now says she's "elated" that he has resurfaced and is hopeful he's getting the help he needs in rehab.

Rose, 30, doesn't know if Nick's 30-day stay at an undisclosed facility, which began Saturday, will pull him out of what she says has been the worst addiction cycle of the actor's life -- one in which he's turned down acting roles for nine months and has lived apart from her and their 2-year-old daughter since February.

However, Rose tells People in an email, "I gotta lotta hope."

" 'How dark it is before the dawn.' I've chanted that a lot in my head. I find comfort in it," adds Rose.

For now, she asks that people be supportive of Stahl, 32, and not judgmental as he deals with this problem privately.

n"Breaking Bad" is coming back!

AMC's critically acclaimed drama, starring Emmy winners Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, will return July 15 at 10 p.m., the network announced Monday.

Eight episodes of "Bad's" supersized fifth and last season will air on Sundays this summer, with the series' final eight episodes following in summer 2013, E! News reports.

Once a mild-mannered high school physics teacher who becomes a meth dealer to support his family after his terminal cancer diagnosis, Walter White (Cranston) is now a violent, cunning, narcissistic and remorseless killer. Forget "breaking" -- Mr. White, aka Heisenberg, had broken bad by last season's shocking finale.

AMC also announced that its Western drama "Hell on Wheels" returns with its second season Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. "Small Town Security," AMC's new unscripted series, will follow "Breaking Bad" in the 11 p.m. time slot.

Kate Gosselin and her eight are doing great, E! News reports.

"We're doing awesome," the former reality TV star turned coupon blogger told Ann Curry during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show Monday morning. "The kids are doing great in school. Everyone is excelling at school, across the board. It's amazing."

But could Kate and her little ones eventually make it back into our living rooms?

"They really, honestly miss filming," Gosselin said. "They recently have been saying, 'When are we going to go here or there?' They miss the crew. So, with our TLC contract now over, we're hoping to move forward and do more fun projects."

And while it's probably safe to say ex-husband Jon Gosselin won't be a part of whatever "projects" might develop, Kate did admit that her relationship with the father of her children is on pretty solid ground.

"I can honestly say it's more peaceful than it's ever been," she said. "He's been really positive and more available, and it's just less stressful. I feel like he's working with me, and the kids notice it--and that's good because I've always wanted peace for them."

Weekend "Today" show anchor Amy Robach is jumping from NBC News to ABC.

ABC said Monday that Robach will be a news correspondent based in New York. She has been the co-anchor of the weekend "Today" edition since 2007, the Associated Press reports.

Robach worked in local news in Washington, D.C.; Charleston, S.C.; and Athens, Ga.; before joining MSNBC as a daytime anchor in 2003.

ABC News president Ben Sherwood calls Robach a "tenacious and skilled reporter" who has covered stories including Hurricane Katrina and the death of former President Ronald Reagan.

nRobin Gibb is gone, but certainly not forgotten.

On Sunday's red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards, countless celebrities mourned the loss of the Bee Gees singer. Justin Timberlake tweeted a tribute to the musical icon, writing: "We have lost a truly brilliant musician today. One of my idols. My heart goes out to the Gibb family in this time of sorrow ... RIP Robin."

John Travolta was also devastated by Gibb's passing. ...

"I thought Robin was one of the most wonderful people -- gifted, generous, and a real friend to everyone he knew," Travolta told E! News Monday. "And we'll miss him."

Stars like such as Brandy, Carrie Underwood, Gavin DeGraw and Taio Cruz also expressed their grief over Gibb, who lost his battle to cancer on Sunday at age 62. Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, who cohosted Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, took a moment during the show to pause and remember Gibb.

Country music star George Jones is in the hospital again with a respiratory infection.

A spokesman says the 80-year-old singer was hospitalized Monday afternoon in Nashville, Tenn., and that concert dates through June will be rescheduled where possible, the Associated Press reports.

Jones spent about a week in the hospital in March, also forcing a round of postponements.

The "White Lightning" singer was due to return to the stage this weekend at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. Jones will miss about seven shows in Georgia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Arizona and Nevada.

The Country Music Hall of Fame member is widely considered the greatest male voice in country music history.
