From UsWeekly:

Sasha Fierce is gonna be a mama!

Beyonce made a huge announcement outside L.A.’s Nokia Theater at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards: She’s pregnant!

The Grammy-winning superstar, 29, covered up her bod in a gorgeous, loose-fitting red gown by Lanvin — and announced her huge news to photographers. (The singer’s rep subsequently confirmed the pregnancy to Us Weekly.)

It will be the first child for the singer and Jay-Z, her husband of three years.

Indeed, the couple has had babies on the brain for a while. “I always said I would have a baby at 30,” Beyonce teased on a June 27 appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. The “Best Thing I Never Had” singer turns 30 September 4.

She and rapper-mogul Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter), 41, tied the knot in NYC in April 2008.

“”He is amazing,” she gushed of her guy, adding that he was a “good man.”

Even though this is a SUPER short clip of the wedding…it made me SOOOOO excited to see the ACTUAL 2-part wedding special in October!!

Reported to be one of the most extravagant weddings to date, no expense was spared for the over-the-top, black-and-white themed nuptials.  Kim wore wore a custom-made ivory Vera Wang gown, accented with a diamond headpiece for her veil (the headpiece was whatevs).  Stepdad, Bruce Jenner, walked her down the aisle as a beaming Kris Humphries stood wearing a white tux (looking fugs as usual).

I LOVE Kim to death~ but she could have done WAY better than Kris.  oh wells…the world is predicting their eminent divorce but I TRULY hope that she makes it till the end.

Kim Kardashian Gets MARRIED!!!

WOW.  This day is finally here!!  The world knows how much Kim has wanted to get married since…Reggie Bush!  Although the reality starlet was married once before (at the tender age of 18, which was done in secret), she is finally getting her dream wedding.
Kim wore a custom designed dress by Vera Wang and guests wore black or white for the black tie themed wedding.  The 30-year-old bride looked like an Armenian princess in ivory~
Here’s what UsWeekly has to say about the details~

The bride’s wedding party — including sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Kris Humphries‘ sister Kaela — also wore ivory. The wedding was a strictly black and white affair, so guests were asked to wear only those two colors.

For the reception, Kim changed into not one, but two ivory dresses. According to E! Online, her second dress was another Vera Wang creation: an ivory mermaid gown with hand-piece Chantilly lace applique on the bodice and a skirt with hand-cut organza petals intermixed with Chantilly lace motifs and organza sprig embroidery.

 A source told Us Weekly that later in the evening, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie Jenner changed out of their bridesmaids gowns into something more comfortable — matching white track suits! 

Guests at the fete included all of Kim’s famous family, plus Ryan Seacrest, George Lopez, Brittny Gastineau, Ciara, Jonathan Cheban, Eva Longoria, Lala Vasquez, Mario Lopez and Dancing with the Stars contestant Sugar Ray Leonard.

A source tells Us that the newlyweds’ cake — a sugary confection from Hansen Cakes in L.A. – costs a whopping $15,000 to $20,000! The source says the cake is a knockoff of Prince William and Duchess Kate‘s wedding cake from their April 29 wedding.

Humphries and Kardashian got engaged in May after a six-month courtship. Kim’s sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, served as co-maids of honor, while younger sisters Kendall, Kylie, and Kris’ sister Kaela were bridesmaids. According to E! Online, all of Kim’s bridesmaids wore ivory dresses by Vera Wang. Kourtney and Scott Disick’s 20-month old son, Mason, was the ring bearer. 

Kim’s nephew Mason Disick, who had the important role of ring bearer, kept guests laughing. “He kept going back up the aisle,” a source tells Us. “Finally I think on the third try he had the rings!”

The newlyweds’ celebrations won’t end on Saturday. Eleven days after Kim and her NBA beau’s nuptials, Niche Media founder Jason Binn and wedding planner to to the stars Colin Cowie are throwing the duo another bash in New York!

The altar was made of a huge cross made of Swarovski crystals. “It was a bit much,” a source said. “But Kris’ family are Christians and very religious, so maybe that was a way of incorporating in religion and Kardashian style!”

Kim and Humphries, 26, wrote their own vows. “Kris talked about how he loved Kim’s hustle and work ethic,” a source said. “They also talked about all the things they loved about one another.”

A spokesperson for Bravo said in a statement: “All of us at Bravo are deeply saddened by this tragic news.  Our sympathy and thoughts are with the Armstrong family at this difficult time.”

Armstrong’s close friend and castmate Adrienne Maloof tweeted: “My heart goes out to @TaylorArmstrong and Kennedy during this devastating time. You will be in my thoughts and in prayers.”

“I am so very sad about today’s news,” Bravo’s Andy Cohen tweeted. “My prayers and thoughts are with Taylor Armstrong and her family.

“That’s unbelievably awful,” Real Housewives of New York‘s Alex and Simon McCord told Us Weekly. “[We] hadn’t heard yet. Our hearts go out to the family.”

“It’s terrible!” McCord’s castmate Ramona Singer told Us. “I’ve met Taylor, she’s very sweet.”

She added of the the late Armstrong: “It’s a shame, it’s a shame for his child and it’s a shame for his wife. It’s very sad when anyone takes their life. Someone has to be in so much pain to take their life, I can’t even imagine what kind of pain.”

Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Danielle Staub tweeted: “Love and prayers to you and your family — I pray your privacy will be respected in this great time of need!”

Added Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes: “My dear friend! My heart goes out 2 u! I’am here 4 u.”

Beverly Hills Housewives’ Russell Armstrong Commits Suicide

Tragic news has hit the reality TV community~ and especially those in the BRAVO Real Housewives franchise…

Russell Armstrong has committed Suicide.  He was found dead in his apartment by his roommate in their Mulholland Drive home.  No suicide note was left at the scene.  Taylor learned about the suicide shortly after the police arrived.

Russell, 47, leaves behind daughter Kennedy (about 6) and estranged wife, Taylor, 40.  My heart really goes out to the Armstrong family at this time.

From Bricks and Stones:

UPDATE: Bravo and the cast of “Real Housewives” were unaware of Russell’s death. Kyle Richards was distraught when she saw the post, and Lisa Vanderpump was speechless.

Housewives’ Adrienne Maloof: Brandi Glanville Is “Like a Child”

From UsWeekly:

https://i0.wp.com/www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/articles/43521-housewives-adrienne-maloof-brandi-glanville-is-like-a-child/1312467802_brandi-glanville-adrienne-maloof-290.jpg

Fear not, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans: If you thought you’d seen all the drama there was to see in the explosive just-released trailer, know that there’s many more wild antics in store.

“Stay tuned, because season 2 will knock your socks off!” cast member Adrienne Maloof enthused to Us Weekly at Wednesday’s Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension premiere in Hollywood.

Adding fuel to the fire on this season of the Bravo hit? Eddie Cibrian‘s ex, Brandi Glanville, who appears intermittently as a friend of the cast members.

“She kind of weaves herself in and out,” Maloof, 49, confirms of Glanville, 38, who was seen in the show’s season preview trailer berating Kim Richards and threatening to kill her. “She is like bringing a child [to a party]. You don’t know really what she is going to say. She has no filter, so that’s why you want to stay tuned!”

In addition to the women having to contend with Glanville’s outbursts, Maloof and the cast will help console Taylor Armstrong, who filed for divorce from her husband Russell in July.

“It’s a horrible situation and you have to be supportive,” Maloof told Us. “Ultimately you care about her little girl [Kennedy, 5] and what’s best for her. [The RHOBH cast] have all been there for her and now she has to do the work. It’s a difficult situation and that’s all I can say.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres on Bravo September 5.

Royal News: Prince William Sang Karaoke at Zara Phillips’ Wild Wedding Bash

https://i1.wp.com/www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/articles/43370-prince-william-sang-karaoke-at-zara-phillips-wild-wedding-bash/1312205201_kate-middleton-william-zara-wedding-290.jpg

From UsWeekly:

Hoedown at Holyroodhouse!

After Zara Phillips wed Mike Tindall at Canongate Kirk church in Edinburgh, Scotland, the royal bride, her brand-new husband and their guests headed to the Palace at Holyroodhouse.

And, just as at Prince William and Duchess Kate‘s wedding, her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II split before the evening reception dinner so the younger kids could party.

After feasting on venison, seafood and selection of desserts (washed down with lots of fine champagne), the party continued in the Palace Quadrangle and other areas of the palace, an insider tells Us Weekly.

“They all had so much fun after the dinner,” the source says. How much fun? The dancing was followed up by karaoke!

“Zara was first up, and then Mike joined her. They did Abba and everyone was dancing and cheering them on!”

Duchess Kate, 29, was “having fun and was happy to let her hair down,” the source says.

Best moment of the evening? When Prince William, 29, grabbed hold of the microphone to croon Bon Jovi‘s “Livin’ on a Prayer.”

“He sang karaoke! Kate stayed down in front of the stage but clapped and cheered while he sang,” the royal insider reveals. “It was amazing.”

“Pretty much everyone stayed up all night,” the insider adds. “I don’t even think Zara and Mike went to bed. They were too busy having fun with their friends.”

 

Royal Wedding: Kate Middleton vs Zara Phillips

https://i0.wp.com/www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/articles/43362-whose-royal-wedding-dress-do-you-prefer/1312134985_kate-zara-phillips-b.jpg

 

Is this even a battle?  UsWeekly had a poll listed of who had the better dress.  I would have to say Kate, hands down.  HOWEVER, I don’t think it’s fair to compare the two when Kate is marrying Prince William (second in line) to the small private affair Zara Phillips had to wed Mike Tindall.  This isn’t about who had better taste or who had a smaller wedding.  I’m sure if Kate and William had to choose it would have been extremely down to earth, small and intimate.

All in All, Kate had a much prettier dress~ but in terms of weddings…I think Zara won since she had a much bigger say in what went down and what she wanted.

Kate is a bride of the people.  She had little choice in what happened.
