“Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie has gotten married, and she used the occasion to announce she’s expecting her first child, The Associated Press reports.
Guthrie and Mike Feldman, a 45-year-old communications strategist, tied the knot Saturday near her hometown of Tucson, Ariz. It was there she told her guests she’s four months pregnant.
Guthrie’s on-air “Today” colleagues were among those on hand for the wedding ceremony.
The marriage-and-baby twofer was revealed to the rest of the world on Monday’s edition of “Today,” with Guthrie back in New York at the NBC morning show.
Beside her at the anchor desk, Matt Lauer reported that she was “a beautiful bride.”
The 42-year-old Guthrie said she was happy to go public with her pregnancy, because “I can’t suck in this gut anymore.”
Until her untimely death Monday, L’Wren Scott had only been designing her eponymous clothing line for eight years — but her impact on the world of celebrity fashion rivaled that of designers who had been on the scene for decades, People reports. Since launching her “Little Black Dress” collection in 2006, the designer, 49, had seen her dresses worn to the Oscars, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, major premieres and state dinners by women as varied as Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian and Olivia Wilde. Scott was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Monday of an apparent suicide, but left behind a legacy that includes her dresses, shoes and handbags; lines for Banana Republic, Lancome, Bobbi Brown and Caudalie; and of course, some truly beautiful red carpet moments.
Not only did L’Wren Scott work with numerous A-list celebrities (you’ve seen her designs all over the carpet), but she was highly revered amongst her peers in the fashion community. She was also a guest judge on the Season 9 finale of “Project Runway.”
“It’s fun to see the ideas in your head spring to life,” Scott, the longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, said in a 2009 interview with The Daily Beast. “Because it all starts in your mind.”
And now following her tragic and untimely death, her colleagues are grieving the loss of the tastemaker on social media.
Nina Garcia of “Project Runway”: “Saddened over the loss of the very talented, generous and always gracious L’Wren Scott. You will be missed,” she tweeted.
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics tweeted: “I’m devastated by the tragic news about L’Wren. She was an incredible designer who I considered a friend. My heartfelt condolences go out to her loved ones during this very sad time. – Bobbi”
Bianca Jagger tweeted: “Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L’Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.”
How does Lady Gaga get clean after being puked on? Bath time!
After her controversial vomiting performance at SXSW last week in Austin, the “Born This Way” singer took to her website to share a naked selfie where she’s halfway submerged in water in a tub, E! News reports.
“I loved every moment with you Austin,” she captioned the sexy photo. “Last nights show healed my soul. Creative Rebellion is ARTPOP. Release yourself from every expectation. Be free.”
In the pic, the 27-year-old pop star shows off her tattoos and lots of skin while lying on her side in bathwater that’s discolored from the slime-like substance she was covered in during the bizarre concert.
Gaga’s vomiting act caused controversy among some fans, including Demi Lovato, who blasted Gaga for glorifying bulimia. “Sad… As if we didn’t have enough people glamorizing eating disorders already. Bottom line, it’s not ‘cool’ or ‘artsy’ at all,” Lovato tweeted.
She added, “Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you? Addiction is addiction.”
On Monday, Chris Brown was ordered to remain in jail until a hearing in late April because he got into trouble in a court-mandated rehab program, People and the AP report.
Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Monday that he was troubled by comments that Brown made during his rehab stay in which the singer allegedly said he was good at using guns and knives.
Before the hearing, Brown had been in the city’s Men’s Central Jail since March 14, when sheriff’s deputies arrested him at a Malibu rehab for violating the facility’s rules. According to TMZ, Brown committed three violations: making harsh comments during a group session, initially declining to take a random drug test upon returning from an authorized outing (he later acquiesced and tested negative), and touching the hands and elbows of a woman at the rehab.
Brown, 24, had been under a special order to stay at least 2 feet from women at the facility due to his 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the Grammy Awards.
Brown was initially sentenced to probation after the attack, but, after his involvement in a fight late last year in Washington, D.C., he was charged in Washington with misdemeanor assault and sentenced in Los Angeles to three months of inpatient rehab. The Washington case is scheduled to go to trial April 17.
A judge on Feb. 28 extended Brown’s rehab another two months, after receiving a report saying Brown was only recently making progress and becoming less impulsive, and the court should be wary of releasing him too soon. The report said Brown was under intensive therapy for bipolar disorder, sleep deprivation, anger management, post-traumatic stress disorder and past substance abuse.
Scarlett Johansson is speaking about the Woody Allen scandal, calling Dylan Farrow’s open letter slamming stars who have worked with the director “irresponsible,” People reports.
“I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on,” Johansson told The Guardian in an interview published Saturday. “That just feels irresponsible to me.”
Johansson, 29, collaborated with Allen for three critically acclaimed films: “Match Point,” “Scoop” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.” She was mentioned in February when Farrow, 28, penned an open letter for The New York Times detailing her assertion that Allen, her adoptive father, sexually assaulted her when she was 7 years old.
“What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?” Farrow wrote.
But Johansson defended her collaborations with Allen, saying “it would be ridiculous” to change their relationship based on Farrow’s claims.
“I’m unaware that there’s been a backlash. I think he’ll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I’m sure the other people involved have their own experience with it,” Johansson told The Guardian. “It’s not like this is somebody that’s been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, ‘I don’t support this lifestyle’ or whatever. I mean, it’s all guesswork.”
It’s a boy for Josh Holloway, who says “everything’s calmer” with his second baby, the AP reports.
The 44-year-old actor said in an interview that he and his wife, Yessica Kumala, welcomed Hunter Lee Holloway earlier this year.
“He’s here, he’s upstairs. Six weeks,” Holloway said Sunday while promoting his upcoming action film, “Sabotage.” “We’re calmer, which makes everything better. Yeah, your first one, you’re definitely full of fear.”
Holloway and Kumala have a 4-year-old daughter, Java. The former “Lost” actor currently stars in the CBS series “Intelligence.”
One of the founders of the quirky rock band The B-52s is using the 35th anniversary of its hit “Rock Lobster” to reiterate his opposition to eating them, the AP reports.
Fred Schneider says he stopped eating crustaceans at age 4 after going crabbing with family in New Jersey and watching them boiled alive. The lifelong vegetarian said in video narrated for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that he views crabs and lobsters not as seafood but as “sea life.”
Schneider got the idea for “Rock Lobster” when a projector displayed images including lobsters on a grill at an Atlanta disco. He said he thought, “Rock this, rock that … rock lobster!”
The band jammed on the title and the song was born. The band’s other hits include “Love Shack” and “Roam.”
