My Size Barbie and Ken Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds put on the My Wedding Dream Clothes™ that came in the box with them and stealthily got married on a plantation in South Carolina yesterday. Their friend
Florence Welch was there to sing in honor of their love, and so—more importantly!—was Hollywood's fairy godmother Bette Midler, who has actually BEEN GOSSIP GIRL THE WHOLE TIME.
About 70 people attended and there was a $3,000 cake that I searched really hard for more details on. Couldn't find any, but at least you know where my priorities are. Reynolds was previously married to Scarlett Johansson. Serena Van Der Woodsen has never been married, but has been imprisoned, blackmailed by Harriet the Spy, slept with a married congressman, slept with her best friend's boyfriend, slept with her high school English teacher, and accidentally killed a guy once sort of.

Kristen Stewart flirted with James Franco at the Toronto Film Festival "for like 10 minutes," (which is the longest James Franco has ever been able to concentrate on anything). He invited her out to dinner that night, and then the two went to "a mysterious third floor."
"I have an idea," she probably said. "Let's make this awesome art installation where we fuck on the third floor and then please never call me."
"Dude," he said, "You're totally awesome." [Today News Gazette]
Never has "We're going to be fine. We're totally fine," been discussed so much in a Robert Pattinson/K-Stew capacity. [Chicago Sun-Times]
Kim Kardashian, there are no words:
[Kris and I] were done filming our season at that point, so we decided to film for the wedding. And that was a decision that he and I made together. But I think that, with any decisions in life [brace yourselves], like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life. She's 18. And I was like, that's how I feel.
Kanye West used to watch the Kim Kardashian/Ray-J sex tape to get in the mood. You know, the mood. To put his body part in another person's body part a bunch of times with increasing speed until something happens or someone feels like getting pizza. [TMZ]
Here's a promo for The X-Factor that features, among other things, Simon Cowell wearing a crown and Demi Lovato stressing, "I can help because I know about today's sound. I know today's music," because every other judge on the panel, and all of us really except Demi Lovato, is a wizened old crypt keeper who will die soon.
One of Queen Elizabeth II's beloved corgis, Monty, has passed away, leaving Buckingham Palace bereft. Oh, cruel fate, you can take her corgi, but you can't take her dignity. Or her other two corgis. [Daily Beast]
Newly-public emails from Michael Jackson's director Kenny Ortega to promoter Randy Phillips five days before the King of Pop's death show Ortega's concern for Jackson (Jackson was too "weak and fatigued" to rehearse, was "trembling, rambling and obsessing... everything in [Ortega] says he should be psychologically evaluated... [Ortega] honestly felt if [he] had encouraged or allowed him on stage last night he could have hurt himself."
Phillips responded: "It is critical that neither you, me, or anyone around this show become amateur psychiatrists or physicians... You cannot imagine the harm and ramifications of stopping the show now." The emails will likely be used in two lawsuits set for 2013 trial. [NYDN]
