Emmy Rossum Marries Mr. Robot Creator Sam Email. It was the perfect day for a white wedding. Actress Emmy Rossum and Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in New York City, People confirms. The outlet also reports that the two were married at the east 55th street Conservative Synagogue in New York City in front of a guest list that included Robert Downey Jr., William H. Macy, Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Charly Chaikin and Hilary Swank. E! News can report that their wedding bands are estimated at $75,000 for both. Esmail wore a black suit. The bride wore an off-the-shoulder custom Carolina Herrera wedding gown -- something she had been planning to do since late last year. The couple began dating in 2013 after Rossum was cast in Esmail's first full-length film, Comet. The couple got engaged in August 2015, and a month later, Rossum told E! News' Marc Malkin that she was in no rush to make it down the aisle. "We're just chilling for a hot second," she said, adding that she was "just not sharing" details with her family or friends. When E! News caught up with Rossum three months ago, it was instantly clear that she hadn't transformed into a bridezilla since Esmail popped the question two years prior. At the time, the bride-to-be said she hadn't "done any" dress fittings. "We're nowhere. It'll be fine. She's got it. There's no rush," the Shameless star said. "She can turn it around in a day. I'm not concerned." Esmail wasn't concerned either, so the hands-off couple decided to hire a wedding planning team to oversee their big day. "Weirdly, I feel like so many times in my life are about dressing up for a film premiere or for a fashion show, so this is the one kind of time in my life where I'm actually not that focused on details," Rossum said. "I don't really care what the dress looks like. I don't really care what the plates look like. I don't really care what the invitations look like." "The only thing that's really important to me is that we get married and there's some kind of party. And everything else? I won't freak out if there's not, like, an orange peony on the day...Like, I don't care," said Rossum, who was married to Justin Siegel from 2008 to 2010. "There are so many more important things than what the tablescape looks like. I don't care!" (Eonline)

Miranda Kerr Marries Snapchat's Evan Spiegel in Intimate Ceremony. After a whirlwind romance, Miranda Kerr and Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel are officially husband and wife! The couple tied the knot in front of family and friends at their home in Brentwood, Calif., E! News can confirm. E! News can also report that the wedding had less than 50 guests. "It was a small intimate wedding," says a source, who added that the bride looked regal and like a "natural princess." In addition to being an intimate affair it was also an emotional one. Both the bride and groom had tears in their eyes, according to the insider. "The vows were beautiful," said the wedding goer. As for the guest list for the exclusive event? Mostly high-profile attendees and some models, adds the source. According to another wedding guest, people arrived at 4 p.m. and were served cocktails in an open air tent. A pianist played "When You Wish Upon a Star," and was later joined by a string quartet. The ceremony began at 4:40 p.m. and lasted 20 minutes. At the end of the nuptials, the crowd cheered. The decor was rustic chic with farmhouse tables, white benches and chairs and light pink garden roses. "Everything was done elegantly," said the guest. In between the ceremony and reception, Miranda had her makeup touched up by makeup artist Lisa Storey. In June of last year, the Aussie model announced that she was engaged to the tech mogul after one year of dating one another. E! News caught up with the brunette beauty recently where she gushed about why she's completely head over heels in love with her now-husband. "He's just a really kind person and very genuine and very authentic and I really appreciate that about him," she explained before adding, "And also, he's very intelligent." This marks the second marriage for Kerr, who was previously married to Orlando Bloom for three years. They married in 2010 and subsequently split up in October of 2013. The two have one child together, a son named Flynn. For Spiegel, however, this marks his very first marriage. So after wedding bells comes... baby news, perhaps? Well, Kerr did admit that she's open to the idea of expanding her family with her new hubby. "I am very content with having just one [child], but I am definitely open to the possibility of having more. [Flynn] will often say, 'My friends have brothers or sisters, will I have a brother or sister one day?' I say, 'Maybe, honey.'" Only time will tell, but until then, we wish Mr. and Mrs. Spiegel all the best on their exciting wedding news. E! News has reached out to a rep for the model. (Eonline)

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor Separate After 17 Years of Marriage. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have decided to go their separate ways. After 17 years of marriage, the couple announced that they have split. "With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate," the couple said in a joint statement to E! News. Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time." The couple, who shares two children together, tied the knot in May 2000 at an oceanfront ceremony in Kauai, Hawaii. Since then, they have shared the screen on many occasions including Zoolander, Tropic Thunder and Arrested Development. According to Ben, the romance came at an unexpected time. But once he realized the feelings were mutual, things took off. "[Our] relationship was a gradual thing that happened over a quick period of time, maybe seven or eight months," he told Parade magazine. "We just started hanging out with each other and it developed into, 'Wow, this feels great. I really like this person. I think I love this person. I really do -- I love this person.' It hit me out of the blue." "I proposed to Christine when I was rehearsing Meet the Parents," he added. "I asked her father for permission before I did it." As for the secret to their long relationship, Christine shared that laughter is key to keeping the romance alive. "[Having a] sense of humor. I have to say, sense of humor is the greatest thing," she shared with Entertainment Tonight before discussing the pros of working together with her husband. "It's the best. I mean, I think that, you know, the reality is there's such an unspoken connection. I feel like for us, when we first met, it was on set... He's amazing." Entertainment Tonight was first to report the separation news. (Eonline)

Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank Speaks Out After Being Targeted by Gunman. A gunman has been arrested at Phoenix Comicon after allegedly planning to kill celebrity guest Jason David Frank, who played the green Power Ranger Tommy in the original Power Rangers in the '90s. The actor, who the suspect never approached, told reporters he is not "affected" in any manner by the incident and will "pray" for the suspect. Police told Arizona's ABC 15 that 29-year-old Mathew Enrique Nava Sterling was arrested Thursday at Phoenix Comicon for allegedly planning to kill Frank and police officers at the event. They said cops detained him on the second floor of the Phoenix Convention Center after a struggle. Police told ABC 15 that officers found him carrying three handguns, a shotgun, knives, throwing stars, pepper spray and ammunition and was also wearing body armor under his clothes. The outlet said court records stated Sterling also had a calendar reminder set on his smartphone saying "Kill JDF," which is believed to stand for the Power Rangers star. A Los Angeles woman told the Arizona Republic newspaper that she had reported Sterling to a California police sergeant she knew after he had sent her a Facebook message, saying, he "was going to be in a showdown with cops and would kill them." He also sent photos of his weapons and of police at the convention center. The officer then contacted Arizona police. Police said they believe Sterling is mentally disturbed, telling ABC 15 that he told officers he "was the Punisher" and that can tell the difference between the "good" and "bad" cops. Sterling was booked on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, wearing body armor during the commission of a felony, resisting arrest and carrying a weapon in a prohibited place, records show. "This has not affected me in any manner," Frank said in a news conference filmed by Fox 10 Phoenix. "I'm very grateful to the Phoenix police department for their brave and outstanding efforts, which avoided a terrible tragedy, as recently seen at the concert in Manchester," he said. "To all my fans, please, if you see something, say something." He said he did not know the suspect personally but would "pray for him." "This incident is an eye-opening situation to increase and add more security to all Comicons around the world," he said. A police spokesperson told reporters Thursday that security at the center will be boosted and that weapons, including prop ones, will be banned. Frank said the incident would not stop him from meeting his fans and that he would continue his scheduled appearances at Phoenix Comicon. "There's a price to being a celebrity." he said. "I don't really consider myself a celebrity, although I am." (Eonline)

Judge blocks construction of airstrip by actor Bruce Willis. A judge has blocked actor Bruce Willis' plan to build a private airstrip in central Idaho. The Idaho Mountain Express reports that 5th District Judge Robert Elgee ruled that Camas County commissioners violated state law when drafting an ordinance allowing individuals to obtain conditional-use permits to build a private airport in agricultural-zoned county lands. Willis began construction on an 8,500-foot dirt runway last year. However, the project was halted in September after Planning and Zoning Administrator Dwight Butlin discovered that the airport site was on land zoned for agricultural use. Work was allowed to resume when the county tweaked the ordinance, which sparked a lawsuit filed by Camas County residents. Elgee said in his May 19 ruling that Camas County showed a "complete disregard" for property rights and the well-being of the neighborhood. Camas County Attorney Matt Pember said the county was disappointed with the judge's decision. (Eonline)

Jaden Smith Claims Canadian Hotel ''Spiked'' His Pancakes With Cheese and Kicked Him Out. Not everyone has the time of their lives when staying in the lap of luxury... Jaden Smith took to Twitter earlier on Saturday to let the world know he had a pretty bad time after staying at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto in Canada. How bad was it? He said a meal there made him want to "throw up" on himself. So...not good, or so it seems. The 18-year-old actor, who is currently in Toronto filming Life In A Year, posted a series of somewhat cryptic tweets, in which he seemed rather perturbed by his hotel experience. The series of tweets began with: "The Four Seasons In Toronto just made me want to throw up on myself." Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's son then went on to write, "I hope the Four Seasons in Toronto puts me on the no stay list." But why all the hate for the luxurious hotel? Some of the teen's other tweets may help clarify the mystery. Jaden, whom you may remember brought his hair as his date to the Met Gala earlier this month, claimed, "The Four Seasons in Toronto spiked my pancakes with cheese, I'm surprised I'm still alive." Jaden, who is vegan, added, "after they kicked me out of my room." Despite the tweets, E! News has learned that Jaden had been staying at the hotel for a few days, but at the end of his stay he didn't want to check out and was not happy about it. A source tells E! News that the Karate Kid actor's request could not be accommodated last minute. The insider says that Jaden asked for an extra room but the hotel was completely booked up so there were no rooms available because there are several events happening in town, including The Weeknd's hometown concert. As for some intel on the cheese-"spiked" pancakes: Four Seasons chain is famous for their "Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes," which is a dish that E! News can confirm is served at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. A rep for the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto declined to comment. (Eonline)

Johnny Depp Wins Small Victory in Lawsuit Against Business managers. A judge has ruled that Johnny Depp's legal case against his former business managers and their company can proceed with information given by a former employee, which the actor's lawyers call a "whistleblower" and the defendants call a "serial liar." The actor had fired The Management Group and later sued them for $25 million. In January, he sued the firm for $25 million for alleged fraud and mismanagement, claiming that he only learned last year that he is $40 million in debt. He blamed the company for allegedly failing to properly maintain his financial records. The group fired back with a cross-complaint of fraud, claiming his allegations are false. In March, Depp's attorneys deposed a former TMG employee, Janine Rayburn, and subpoenaed documents from her that included notes she took during her employment at the company. They later said they would file an amended complaint, pleading allegations taken from her deposition and notes. TMG's lawyers filed an instant motion to seal portions of Depp's attorneys' amended complaint and related pleadings. They argued that the allegations are falsehoods. The judge ruled Friday that Depp can amend his lawsuit against his former business managers. She also ruled that the documents can be unsealed, stating that for them to be sealed, an "overriding interest," or "serious injury" must be shown and that TMG's attorneys "put forward no clear argument" as to why this should apply to their case. She also stated, "It is not appropriate for the Court to seal any allegation that a party argues is false or misleading. Were the Court to do so, court proceedings would almost always be completely confidential and hidden from the public, as it is the very nature of litigation that the truth is contested. This result would clearly not be in the public interest." During her deposition, Rayburn gave her opinion that TMG didn't make Depp aware of his finances, that his manager asked her to notarize the actor's signature when he wasn't present and also asked her to alter a financial statement in connection with a bank loan, The Hollywood Reporter said. Rayburn also testified that she overheard a conversation among Mandel, Depp's sister Christi Dembrowski and attorney Jake Bloom about how they might get the funds to cover his expenses, the outlet said. "Johnny Depp and his counsel know that Janine Rayburn is a serial liar who perjured herself during her deposition who also lied on her resume when she applied for a job at The Management Group," a TMG spokesperson told E! News. "Rayburn only worked at TMG for a brief time and was fired seven years ago. Rayburn fully admitted that she has no idea what conversations took place between Depp and TMG regarding Depp's financial situation. We welcome the opportunity to further question Ms. Rayburn in Court, exposing her many lies." Rayburn has not commented. A source told E! News that the woman worked for the company for more than two years as an account manager. "We are gratified by the Judge's decision to unseal the testimony and supporting documents of the whistleblower who managed Mr. Depp's day-to-day affairs for the Mandels for over 2 years," Depp's attorney told E! News in statement. "Having failed to conceal from the public whistleblower testimony that reveals some of the egregious misconduct Mandel asked her to commit on Mr. Depp's account, the Mandels now predictably focus their efforts on smearing their former employee, just as they have attempted to smear Mr. Depp." (Eonline)

Chris Cornell Laid to Rest at Star-Studded Funeral. Chris Cornell was laid to rest in a private funeral Friday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which was attended by the likes of Brad Pitt and Pharrell. Scores of fans gathered outside to show their respects to the iconic rocker while music from his bands Soundgarden and Audioslave played from a portable speaker. A public viewing will follow the services at 3 p.m. PT. In addition to Pitt, a longtime friend of Cornell, and Pharrell, the star-studded guest list also included Metallica rockers Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield and Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction. Cornell's wife of 13 years, Vicky and their two children, daughter Toni, 12, and son Christopher, 11, arrived dressed in black. The rocker is also survived by a 16-year-old daughter, Lilian, from a previous marriage. Cornell, also known for his group Temple of the Dog, was found dead in his hotel room in Detroit last week, hours after he performed with his band Soundgarden in the city. He was 52. The preliminary report by the medical examiner's office ruled that the cause of death was "suicide by hanging." A full autopsy and toxicology test results are pending. The funeral date was announced last weekend. Cornell's body was cremated earlier this week. Dr. Eric Esrailian, Cornell's longtime friend, gave the eulogy at the rocker's funeral. "If [Cornell] was aware of what he was doing I don't think Chris would ever do this to his family," he told CNN about Cornell's suicide before the event. "The Chris I know would never do this to his family...I completely don't believe he had this planned out." "He always was focused on his children and his wife," he said. "Chris was the center of [Vicky's] world and the world of her children. Everything revolved around Chris because he was such a great, fun, funny person." Following the funeral, his grave site was open to the public. The famous cemetery also contains the grave sites of fellow rockers Johnny Ramone and Dee Ramone of The Ramones and Hollywood icons such as The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland. Days after his death, his wife shared an emotional open letter to the late rocker. "You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through," she wrote, adding, "We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I'm sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I'm sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher." "You were right when you said we are soulmates," she continued. "It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting. I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will. Always and forever, Your Vicky." (Eonline)

Gregg Allman Dies: Allman Brothers Band Leader Was 69. Gregg Allman, frontman and co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band and a trailblazer of Southern Rock, died at age 69 Saturday. He passed away from liver cancer complications at his home in Savannah, Georgia, and he was "surrounded by his family and friends," Michael Lehman, Allman's longtime manager and close friend, told CNN. "It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia," read a message posted on the rocker's official website. "Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times." Gregg is survived by wife Shannon Allman; children Devon, Elijah Blue -- his son with Cher, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; three grandchildren, niece Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton and a large extended family. "IVE TRIED... WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI...FOREVER, CHOOCH," tweeted Cher, who was married to the rocker for more than three years in the '70s. "I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music," Lehman said. "He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and band mates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him." The family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia or the Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship at Syracuse University. Gregg co-founded the Allman Brothers Band in 1969 with his brother Duane Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1971 at age 24. The group has received three Grammy Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement award in 2012, and is known for songs such as "Ramblin' Man," "Whipping Post" and "Straight from the Heart." Gregg was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1999 and underwent a liver transplant in 2010. In April, amid rumors that he'd entered a hospice facility, he said on Facebook, "I just wanted y'all to know that I'm currently home in Savannah resting on my doctor's orders. I want to thank you for all the love that you are sending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Keep Rockin." Earlier this month, a message on his official website stated that Gregg had canceled his 2017 tour dates. Last year, Gregg canceled several shows, citing "serious health issues," and later postponed his entire tour, citing a vocal injury that required rest. (Eonline)

"Supergirl" actor Tyler Hoechlin's Man of Steel act didn't charm his landlord ... he says the guy screwed him out of $10k when he moved out of his apartment. Hoechlin and his roomie, Ryan Guzman -- the hot dude from J Lo's "The Boy Next Door" -- are suing their landlord for overcharging them for what they call ... "normal wear and tear" on their crib. In legal docs, they say the landlord deducted $9,689 from their security deposit to cover paint and other common move-out expenses. They insist there was nothing out of the ordinary done to the place to warrant that tab. They're suing to get their money back. A rep for the property management company stands by the charges. (TMZ)

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Prince William Opens Up About the 20th Anniversary of Princess Diana's Death: ''I Still Find It Difficult Now.'' The world may know that Prince William lost his mother, Princess Diana of Wales, after a fateful car crash in Paris in 1997, but they do not know how he's privately dealt with that pain for the past two decades -- that is until now. In a rare and raw interview with the royal, the Duke of Cambridge, who is usually known for his sense of humor, sits down with Alastair Campbell for the July issue of British GQ and talks about the 20th anniversary of his mother's death, what it's like without his mother today and dealing with grief in the spotlight. On the imminent 20th anniversary of the Princess of Wales' death, William said, "I am in a better place about it than I have been for a long time, where I can talk about her more openly, talk about her more honestly, and I can remember her better, and publicly talk about her better." The father of two continued, "It has taken me almost twenty years to get to that stage. I still find it difficult now because at the time it was so raw." The 34-year-old, who took time to honor the Manchester bombing victims over the weekend, also noted that unlike some people, his grief almost seem magnified due to the public nature of being a royal. "It is not like most people's grief, because everyone else knows about it, everyone knows the story, everyone knows her. It is a different situation for most people who lose someone they love, it can be hidden away or they can choose if they want to share their story." The Duke also spoke openly about what it's like to not have his mother around today and what he wishes she was around for. "I would like to have had her advice. I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up. It makes me sad that she won't, that they will never know her," admitted the royal. The Duke also opened up about the importance of his family in his daily life. "I could not do my job without the stability of the family. Stability at home is so important to me. I want to bring up my children in a happy, stable, secure world and that is so important to both of us as parents," said William. "I want George to grow up in a real, living environment, I don't want him growing up behind palace walls, he has to be out there. The media make it harder but I will fight for them to have a normal life." For the full interview, check out British GQ, out on Thursday. (Eonline)

John Travolta donates plane to Australia aviation group. John Travolta has donated his personal vintage Boeing 707 airplane to a restoration group in Australia. He said in a statement Friday that the plane will require maintenance before for the trip from his Florida home to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society in Albion Park, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Sydney. The craft, which the society hopes to keep in the air, was originally in the Qantas fleet, delivered in 1964 and later converted to private use. The actor, a pilot, hopes to be on board when the plane makes it voyage to Australia. The timing of that is uncertain. Travolta said he has fond memories of the plane and is pleased it will continue to fly "well into the future." (PageSix)

Jet owned by Elvis auctioned after sitting 35 years. A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley has been auctioned after sitting on a runway in New Mexico for 35 years. The plane sold for $430,000 on Saturday at a California event featuring celebrity memorabilia, GWS Auctions Inc. said. The buyer was not disclosed in the sold note posted on the firm's website, and auctioneer Brigitte Kruse said she could not immediately release information about the buyer or the buyer's plans for the plane. The auction house says Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tone woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit. The jet was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley, Liveauctioneers.com says. It has been privately owned for 35 years and sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, New Mexico. Photos of the plane show the exterior in need of restoration and seats of the cockpit torn. A previous owner disputed the auction house's claim the king of rock 'n' roll designed its red velvet interior. Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque he designed the interior himself. McKay said that when he purchased the jet, it had a two-toned gray interior and "kind of looked like a casket." But then-GWS spokesman Carl Carter told The Associated Press the auction house is confident Elvis designed the interior, which photos show has red velvet seats and red shag carpet. Federal Aviation Administration records show no interior changes were ever made to the jet, Carter said. Presley was born in Tupelo on Jan. 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13. He became a leading figure in the fledgling rockabilly scene by covering songs originally performed by African-American artists like Big Mama Thornton ("Hound Dog") and Arthur Crudup ("That's All Right"). His provocative dancing and hit records turned him into one of the 20th century's most recognizable icons. Historians say his music also helped usher in the fall of racial segregation. Elvis was 42 when he died on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis. (Eonline)

In a candid interview with The Mail on Sunday's You magazine, the royal recalled the media storm surrounding her relationship with the Prince of Wales, an affair that occurred while she was still married to her first husband Andrew Parker-Bowles and Charles was still married to the late Princess Diana. "I couldn't really go anywhere. But the children came and went as normal -- they just got on with it, and so did great friends," the 69-year-old said. She later added: "It was horrid. It was a deeply unpleasant time and I wouldn't want to put my worst enemy through it. I couldn't have survived it without my family." Camilla's relationship with Charles, 68, has long been a topic of discussion, with many Princess Diana supporters blaming Camilla for the pair's strained relationship. (Diana also admitted to having affairs of her own while married to Charles but had said she was most upset by her husband's closeness with his former flame Camilla.) Charles and Camilla first dated after being introduced in 1971, launching a decades-long love affair. The love birds split in 1973 and Camilla soon married Parker-Bowles. However, Charles and Camilla eventually rekindled their romance. They began an on-again, off-again relationship with Parker-Bowles turning a blind eye. The two remained married until 1995 and had two children together, food critic Tom Parker-Bowles and art curator Laura Lopes. Charles separated from Diana in 1992 and the pair officially divorced in 1996. Despite the scandal surrounding their affair -- especially after the death of Diana in 1997 -- Charles and Camilla eventually got married in 2005. Now, the Duchess of Cornwall says she hardly recognizes herself in such a royal role. "You also have to laugh at yourself because if you can't, you may as well give up. I sometimes think to myself, 'Who is this woman? It can't possibly be me.' And that's really how you survive," she said. "Also, having so many friends who, if I ever even vaguely look like getting uppity, which touch wood I never have, they would just say, 'Look, come on, pull yourself together! Don't be so bloody grand!'" She was not ill-prepared for royal life, though. Camilla said she has her upbringing in the British gentry to thank for her ability to adapt. "Thank goodness I was brought up with the grounding of my parents, and taught manners. It sounds, especially in this day and age, sort of snobbish, but we left school at 16, nobody went on to university unless you were a real brainbox," she said. "Instead, we went to Paris and Florence and learned about life and culture and how to behave with people, how to talk to people. This was very ingrained in my upbringing and if I hadn't had that, I would have found royal life much more difficult." (People)

Miranda Kerr's Son Flynn "Looked Very Excited" at Her and Evan Spiegel's Wedding. Miranda Kerr's other special guy in her life was just as excited about her wedding Saturday. The supermodel tied the knot with Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel in an intimate ceremony in the garden of their home in the posh Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles in front of family and friends, including many of her fellow model pals. Photos from their big day have not been released. At the reception, Flynn, Miranda and ex Orlando Bloom's 6-year-old son, was seen running around the property with a group of flower girls, having a great time, E! News has learned exclusively. The little boy, dressed in a three-piece suit, "looked very excited," a source said, adding that he "was twirling and spinning as he ran down the driveway." The wedding was very small -- no more than 50 guests attended. "Evan and Miranda looked at many different options for where they wanted to have their wedding, but their backyard was what felt most intimate and perfect," the source said. "They kept it small with only those people that mean the most to them." Cocktails were served before the ceremony inside an open-air tent, while a pianist played songs such as "When You Wish Upon a Star." A string orchestra also performed. The ceremony lasted just 20 minutes and guests cheered and yelled at the end. The source told E! News the decor was rustic chic with farmhouse tables, white benches and chairs, cream-colored table cloths, cream-colored lounge furniture, pots of ferns and ivy, tall pillar candles and large arrangements of white and light pink garden roses. Dinner was also served in the tent and Miranda and Evan walked around with their dog, Teddy, in tow, thanking everyone for coming. As guests were seated, Jason Mraz performed a set, which including his hit song, "I'm Yours." After dinner, the music went silent and people made speeches. Many people talked about Flynn. One of Evan's friends said, "Congratulations you three" at the end of his speech, referring to the child, the source said. Other speakers included Evan's sisters, Caroline and Lauren, who teared up while making very emotional speeches and cried. Miranda's family members, including her mother, grandfather and aunt, also spoke. Her aunt gave Evan advice on how to keep a woman happy, saying, "Remember the woman is always right," which got a laugh from the crowd. At the end of the speeches, someone yelled, "Let's eat cake" and a wedding cake was cut. Colbie Caillat then took the stage for about 30 minutes, performing songs such as "Falling for You" and "I Do." At the end of her set, she thanked Evan and Miranda and said she was "honored to be there." Jason then joined her onstage to perform their duet "Lucky." A DJ then took over and played songs such as Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely," Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" and Madonna's "Holiday." Everyone hit the dance floor and didn't stop dancing all night, the source said. At the end of the night, the DJ announced, "Let's hear it for the bride!" and Miranda got up on stage and sang Shania Twain's "Still the One." "She sounded amazing and hit all the high notes," the source said. "At the end, everyone clapped and whistled for her." Orlando was not spotted. Another source had told E! News last week that the actor never received a formal invitation to the wedding and would not be attending. The source added that he and Miranda are on "great terms and wish each other the best." Last July, E! News learned Orlando congratulated Miranda on her and Evan's engagement. "Orlando knows that Evan treats Flynn well so that's all that matters to him," an insider had said at the time, while another told E! News that Evan "gets along with Flynn really well." (Eonline)

Lindsay Lohan Channels Grace Kelly's Iconic Look and Gives Career Update. Lindsay Lohan channeled one of her favorite Hollywood icons, Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, while making a rare appearance at Cannes in France. The Mean Girls star, who has been on hiatus from the spotlight in recent years while living abroad, attended the amfAR gala in a cap sleeve ball gown with a black V-neck bodice and chiffon white A-line skirt, paired with a pearl necklace -- the exact same iconic look the late Kelly showcased in Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 movie Rear Window, in which she declares the dress is "right off the Paris plane." "This is very overwhelming here," Lohan told E! News' Jason Kennedy. "I haven't really been around anything having to do with Hollywood in a long time." "I miss it but at the same time, I'm creating a bunch of different things on my own so I want to focus on what I'm doing," she said. Lohan has attended the Cannes International Film Festival several times over the years, as recently as in 2016, where she was not photographed on a red carpet. Her acting career has stalled for a decade, since she underwent personal and legal turmoil, which included jail stints. In recent years, she has been living in Dubai and London. She has continued to act sparingly. She is preparing to film the new British comedy project Sick Note, which also stars Harry Potter star Rupert Grint as a compulsive liar, as well as Don Johnson. Also, Lohan appears in the crime thriller The Shadow Within, which is set for release later this year. She plays a private investigator who is secretly a descendant of werewolves. Lohan told Kennedy she is also writing a film script. In February, Lohan appeared on The View and joked she "was like harassing" SNL creator Lorne Michaels about making Mean Girls 2, adding, "I'll write the treatment -- If Tina Fey's too busy." The actress also spends her time attending charity events and doing other philanthropic work. In October, she visited Syrian refugee children in Turkey. "I think there's a lot of noise that we deal with," Lohan told Kennedy. "So I've found a kind of peace...in life with working with children, helping other people that really interest me and I think it's important for us to recognize that all of this stuff is really fun and really pretty and really glamorous and beautiful, but you have to take time for you." "I have beautiful friends in my life. I have great people in my life that I'm very grateful for," she said, adding that she is "very happy." (Eonline)

Barbra Streisand Mourns Death of Beloved Dog Samantha. Screen and music legend Barbra Streisand is known for being fiercely private about her personal life, but earlier, the star let her legion of fans in on some intimate moments of her life via social media. Sadly, the post was to mourn the loss of her beloved dog, a Coton De Tulear named Samantha, whom she has had for 14 years. Barbra posted a sweet photo of herself (sans makeup), cradling "Sammie" from the comforts of an airy kitchen. Along with the snapshot, which was taken on May 14, the 75-year-old wrote, "Jason took this pic of me holding Sammie on Mother's Day. This is the last time my picture was taken with my beloved girl Samantha." The Jason mentioned is likely the songstress' only son, Jason Gould, from her former relationship with actor Elliott Gould, whom she was married to from 1963-1971. The heartfelt Instagram post continued, "May she rest in peace. We cherish every moment of the 14 years we had with her. May 2003-May 2017." Sammie has often popped up on the icon's Instagram. The entertainer has thrown the pup birthday parties (complete with a Sammie-lookalike cake), taken her on trips with husband James Brolin and written several tributes to Sammie over the years on National Puppy Day. Only five days ago, the Funny Girl actress wrote, "Happy 14th birthday dear little Sammie." Last October, Barbra took to Instagram to ask for prayers for her four-legged friend, writing, "Sammie has to have surgery today, so we need all of your prayers. Thank you." The big-voiced singer then wrote, "Update: Thank you for all your Prayers. Unfortunately surgery had to be postponed but she's doing okay." (Eonline)

Harry Styles Calls 14-Year-Old Manchester Bombing Victim In the Hospital, Tells Her He Loves Her. Harry Styles may be getting ready to embark on an his first-ever solo international tour, but that doesn't mean the British crooner is too busy to do some good, especially for one 14-year-old victim of this week's Manchester bombing in England. The One Direction singer brightened the day of a young girl, Freya Lewis, who was seriously injured at the terrorist attack after the Ariana Grande concert on Monday, by making a phone call to her hospital bed and telling her he loved her. According to the Manchester Evening News, Freya has been in intensive car since the blast, which killed 22 people, hit on Monday. The teen suffered multiple fractures, lacerations and burns after being hit by flying shrapnel from the explosion. One of the 22 victims was Freya's best friend Nell Jones, who was killed at the scene. The outlet reports that Freya was given CPR at the arena before being rushed to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, where she still is. The teen reportedly spent 10-and-a-half hours in surgery, and has had to undergo two operations, with more planned. Her family has set up a blog to update people on their Freya's progress, which they say will take a great deal of time. While these times are obviously quite dark for Freya and her family, she did some a pick-me-up that came in the form of Harry's phone call. According to the recovery blog hosted on Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and Sixth Form College's website, Freya got a call from Harry shortly after coming out of sedation. The blog, which has been detailing the student's recovery, says: "Freya came around enough from sedation to look at her Dad, blow him a kiss and smile. Then Dad cried. 'What could surpass that?'... Secondly, the phone rang, and it was Harry Styles. Freya woke up, Harry said he loved her, she said she loved him, then Dad said he loved him!" The blog continued, "The PICU unit at Manchester Children's Hospital has just been given a lift like you cannot imagine! Harry, we salute you sir, Holmes Chapel is very proud of you!!!!" (Eonline)

Tim McGraw slayed at his concert over the weekend ... and one of the casualties was a chick in the audience he accidentally laid flat. Tim was making his big entrance at the Tacoma Dome in Washington Saturday night when a female fan got in his path and hit the concrete floor ... and hard. From what we can see, she was no worse for wear ... a security guard checked her and she seemed fine. You may recall another incident back in 2014 ... when Tim slapped a woman during an Atlanta concert who looked like she was either grabbing for his jeans or his junk. (TMZ)

Katy Perry Flashes Underwear Onstage at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2017. Katy Perry got pretty racy onstage at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2017 televised music festival Saturday. The pop star, who wore a sparkling silver mini dress, flashed her white underwear onstage while squatting during her performance. And speaking of squatting, Perry also got pretty blunt while showing some empathy towards many concertgoers struggling with an unfortunate side-effect of attending a concert. "Some of you have to pee, right? I know I know I know. I wear sometimes awful contraptions that doesn't let me use the restroom. So I know kinda how you feel," she said. "But it's all about the music and that's why we're holding in everything." Perry then got somber and dedicated an acoustic version of her song "Part of Me" to the victims of last week's Manchester attack. A suicide bomber had killed 22 people, including children, at the city's stadium after an Ariana Grande concert. "I think that you guys are extremely beautiful and I think that we're all extremely brave and we're all in this together, aren't we?" Perry said. "And you know what? We will still dance, we will still sing, we will still make music. This next one goes out to Manchester and to all the people that know what it means to love music and be a community because of it." "If you haven't kindly touched the person to our right or left just do that. Just a little connection," she added. "Social media can't do that, can it? This is a part of us that they'll never take away from us. Rest in peace, Manchester." During her set, Perry also performed hits such as "I Kissed a Girl," "Roar" and her new tracks "Bon Appetit," "Chained to the Rhythm" and "Swish Swish" from her upcoming new album Witness. (Eonline)

Ariana Grande may be fearless -- vowing to return to Manchester after the terrorist attack at her concert -- but she's not foolhardy, because her family home is being guarded by enough security to protect a head of state. Security vehicles were positioned in front of her mom's home in Boca Raton. It's a gated community, but no one's taking any chances. In addition to private security, 2 cop cars are stationed on the street. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Ariana's mom, Joan, always gets extra security when her daughter's in town. However, local police are more actively patrolling the area given the circumstances around Manchester ... and they're calling that shot on their own. TMZ broke the story ... Ariana will hold a benefit concert in Manchester. All proceeds will go to the family of the victims' families. (TMZ)

Carly Rae Jepsen Dropped a New Song Called ''Cut to the Feeling'' and Fans Are Losing It. Carly Rae Jepsen just graced the world with another bout of happiness in the form of music. The 31-year-old released her song "Cut to the Feeling," which will be part of the soundtrack for the movie Leap!, out in August. Giving us some major '80s-pop inspiration, Jepsen belts, "I wanna cut through the clouds, break the ceiling/ I wanna dance on the roof, you and me alone/ I wanna cut to the feeling, oh yeah!" Not only does the summer tune have us flipping our hair back and forth and using our hairbrushes as microphones, it's also already caused her fans to go wild. "THIS NEW CARLY RAE JEPSEN SONG IS AMAZING I CAN'T STOP CRYING AT MY DESK," another tweeter wrote, adding, "CARLY RAE JEPSEN SAVED POP MUSIC." But more than just the capitalized tweets of pure enthusiasm, many other fans couldn't help but respond to the song. (Eonline)

Shakira's New Album El Dorado Has Very Personal Songs About Gerard Pique: "We Were Hiding From the World." The wait is over! Shakira finally debuted her highly anticipated album El Dorado, and it's amazing! This album doesn't just stick to one genre. You can find it all here. "It's a very eclectic album, there is a lot of variety in it," the 40-year-old songstress says to E! News. "Songs with difference influences from reggaeton, bachata, straight pop songs and very personal songs especially." One of the personal songs that she's referring to is "Me Enamore" which she wrote about her boyfriend, the father of her two children, Gerard Pique. "Some of them are like pages from my journal," she says. "They're so descriptive and narrative of my own stories...love stories." As Shakira tells us, the songwriting process is therapeutic for her. "Occasionally I need that, it's cheaper than a shrink," she explains. "Writing and putting everything on the paper...putting it all out there. Eventually, if it all becomes a song that you like so much, you can't help but put it on the album. "That's what happened to me. I ended up including songs that are very close to my heart and narrate episodes of my life that are very private in a way, but I felt OK with sharing it because in a sense they are sort of homages to very significant moments in my personal life" In "Me Enamore" the singer narrates how she fell for the FC Barcelona stud and never looked back. But what did he think of it all? "He liked the song, he got really emotional. He knows that there are other songs on the album that are also about him," she reveals. "There is another song called 'Coconut Tree,' it's kind of folky and a country hue, I would say. So which chapter of their love story is this song give us a look at? "This song is about...well, we actually went to an island when we started our relationship, and we were hiding from the world," she says. "It tells a lot about what happened at that very moment." In the beginning of the song, Shakira sings, "Flying across the sky, searching for islands where we could land, too far away to be found." We, of course, had to ask about their two adorable sons Milan, 4, and Sasha, 2. As Shakira explains being their mom is her biggest priority. "Motherhood is such a serious thing to me, I take it so seriously that it has become my work, you know? It's a 24-hour job, so now, making music is my hobby," she said laughing. "I never thought I'd say that but, making music is my hobby. Every time I get into the studio it's my escape. It's the space where I can really find myself or sort of rescue parts of myself." But will the boys have a baby brother or sister anytime soon? "I'd love to have more kids," she says. "But who knows? Right now I'm preparing for my next tour. This is another real challenge that I have ahead of me because it's the first time that I'm going to be touring with two kids. I'm going to take them for most of the tour, I'm going to take it one step at a time and try to figure it out as I go." Last night, the "Chantaje" singer celebrated her album release in Miami and because she's Shakira she was able to bring big names like Prince Royce and Nicky Jam to join her on stage and perform the songs that they're featured in on her album. She was ecstatic when the album released, and half an hour later she received a huge surprise. "It's No. 1, and it just came out 30 minutes ago," she said excitedly to the camera. "I can't believe it!" (Eonline)

Ryan Seacrest mad about Katy's 'American Idol' paycheck. Ryan Seacrest isn't happy with how much money he's being offered to host the new "American Idol" on ABC -- and it is Katy Perry's fault. Seacrest, who hosted the show on Fox for 15 seasons, was set to emcee the reboot until Perry -- said to be getting $25 million as an "Idol" judge -- bragged last week on 103.5 KTU: "I'm really proud that, as a woman, I got paid. And you know why? I got paid, like, more than like pretty much any guy that's been on that show." Sources say ABC initially offered Seacrest over $10 million. "[He] was suddenly asking himself why he would come back for a 16th season at a salary [much smaller than that] of the newcomer judge," Richard Rushfield, author of "American Idol: The Untold Story," wrote in his e-mail newsletter, the Ankler. Since Seacrest is already employed in New York at "Live With Kelly & Ryan," and "Idol" would require weekly cross-country trips to LA, he "has grown notably cooler on the prospect," Rushfield reported. An ABC spokesman told me: "We don't comment on negotiations or salary." "Ryan isn't pleased with the protracted negotiations," a source familiar with the talks said. "But he is hopeful that a deal can be reached given his affection for the show." A network insider said, "Perry is not getting $25 million." (PageSix)

Ariana Grande's boyfriend cancels performances after bombing. Mac Miller is canceling his weekend performances in the wake of the suicide bombing that occurred at his girlfriend Ariana Grande's Manchester concert Monday. The rapper announced on Twitter Friday that he has pulled out of both the Soundset music festival in Minnesota and Sasquatch in Washington state, writing, "Thank you for understanding. I'll be back. Love always." Miller, 25, met a forlorn-looking Grande, 23, at the airport in Florida on Tuesday when she returned to the US. Grande, who had been traveling with her mom, Joan Grande, said after the attack that she felt "broken." Twenty-two people, including children, were killed. Grande has since suspended her "Dangerous Woman" world tour -- which had been scheduled to play at London's 02 Arena on Friday and Saturday. Her performances have been canceled through June 5.

Niall Horan Play 'Slow Hands,' Bully Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show'. Niall Horan performs "Slow Hands" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on May 25. The math is simple: when there are five guys in a group you split up the chores. But when it's just you, the lifting is much heavier. That might explain why One Direction's Niall Horan did triple-duty on The Tonight Show on Thursday night, popping up in a skit with host Jimmy Fallon, then sitting on the couch to chat about why he calls one of the Eagles "dad" and finally performing his breakout solo single. The first bit was the easiest, requiring Horan to simply bully Fallon into doing the "Gangnam Style" dance from Psy's signature hit. While Jimmy resisted at first, Niall eventually got the good-natured host to cave and hop on the horse. The singer then had a seat to talk about his musical upbringing and cringe as Fallon showed off a pic of three-year-old Niall jamming on a plastic guitar while wearing a camo onesie. "I grew up on Fleetwood [Mac], Jackson Browne and the Eagles and anything basically that had a Southern Californian, American classic rock feel," he said, noting that Irish fans were very hospitable to American acts. "I went to my first Eagles concert when I was four," Horan recalled, adding that it's "nuts" he's friends with Eagles drummer Don Henley now -- as he recounts in the current Billboard cover story -- all because Henley's daughter came to a 1D concert a few years ago and introduced herself. "I've even star-struck by you," he remembers telling her. Somehow, Fallon even tricked Horan into singing a bit of Henley's 1982 hit "Dirty Laundry." Niall, of course, also took the stage to perform his hit single, "Slow Hands." (Billboard)

Ed Sheeran Smashes More Records as Australasian Stadium Tour Swells to 18 Dates. Ed Sheeran has shattered another record Down Under, and he has another, even loftier achievement in his sights. The British singer-songwriter's 2018 stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand has expanded to 18 shows, eclipsing the historic mark of 14 stadium dates for a single trek set by AC/DC's Black Ice tour of 2010. Next up, Sheeran will try to take down the "Everest" of Australian live music benchmarks, the all-time sales record for a tour set by Dire Straits in 1986, when an estimated 900,000 people caught the Brothers In Arms shows. Sheeran's upcoming Divide tour itinerary grew from seven to 14 shows, but that wasn't enough. As the first day of the general public onsale came to a close earlier this week, more than 710,000 tickets were snapped up, according to Michael Gudinski's Frontier Touring, the promoter of the Australasian leg. So on Friday, Frontier Touring added new dates for Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Dunedin, meaning the artist "will surpass" Dire Straits' seemingly untouchable 31-year-old record. The records keep tumbling. With the announcement of these new dates, Sheeran sets the pace for the most stadium shows on one tour at Forsyth Barr in Dunedin (with three shows) and at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium (four shows). In a statement issued Friday, Sheeran said, "I've always loved coming to Australia and New Zealand. So many amazing musicians have toured there and I am humbled to have broken these records." Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring and chairman of the Mushroom Group of Companies, added, "This is now not only the biggest tour Frontier has promoted, but it's the biggest tour in Australian and New Zealand touring history." Sheeran has a habit of smashing records in this part of the world. His hit "Shape Of You" recently logged a 15th week at No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, trashing the previous streak of 13 weeks set by Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" in 1995. Sheeran also became the first artist to have simultaneous debuts at No. 1 and No. 2 on the ARIA Singles Chart (with "Shape Of You" and "Castle on the Hill," respectively). And when Divide (Asylum/Warner) began its chart reign, 16 tracks from it charted simultaneously inside the top 40, a new record. Sheeran's third album is triple-platinum certified in Australia and it has just been certified six-times platinum in his homeland. Tickets to the new shows go on sale at staggered times on June 1.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich Breaks Down the Katy Perry/Taylor Swift Feud, Gives 2 Chainz Political Advice. The whole running for president thing didn't really work out for John Kasich. But the Republican Ohio Gov. might have stumbled on a solid second career as a pop culture whisperer during his appearance on The View on Thursday (May 25). In addition to giving 2 Chainz some odd advice on a possible run for office, he helped the women on the panel better understand the long-simmering feud between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. "Can you explain what in the hell is going on?" asked co-host Whoppi Goldberg. Digging in without hesitation -- like he would into a plate of brisket on the campaign trail -- Kasich replied, "Well it's shocking to everybody. Don't ever steal anybody's dancers, is the message." Kasich was, of course, referring to the revelation from Perry on The Late Late Show during her "Carpool Karaoke" segment earlier this week in which she laid out the story behind the pair's alleged feud over shared backup dancers. "Maybe they're just trying to get some extra press, although I don't know that Taylor Swift needs any more press," Kasich added. "In fact, she kind of went into hiding, and now they say she's going to reemerge with a new sound." The hip 65-year-old dad of two teenage girls then went on to drop some of his TSwift knowledge, schooling the panel about Taylor's recent hit with Zayn, "I Don't Want to Live Forever," and secret collabo with now-ex boyfriend Calvin Harris on "This is What You Came For." "I will tell you, [Swift] met my wife and kids at a concert. She knew everything about my wife and my children. She was just unbelievably great," Kasich humble bragged. "And Katy, you know, I have a friend that knows Katy Perry, and she's very talented. So, two great pop artists." Watch Kasich break it down: Kasich also gave 2 Chainz some sage advice when the "Without U" MC mentioned that he's contemplated running for mayor in his hometown of College Park, Georgia. Okay, maybe "sage" isn't the right word for it, but Chainz clearly has some solid ideas about helping out the people of his district. (Billboard)

Zac Efron's Grandparents Are the Cutest Baywatch Fans Ever. You're never too old for a movie date! Zac Efron's grandparents showed some love for their famous grandson on the opening weekend of his new film, Baywatch, by hitting up what appears to be a matinee of the comedy, which also stars Dwayne Johnson and Priyanka Chopra. The proud grandparents, who are outfitted in some pretty rad prints, were all smiles when they sauntered out to see the funny flick at the Regal Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX in Bend, Oregon on Saturday. Along with the oh-so adorable snap of the too-cute couple, the 29-year-old heartthrob wrote, "This just makes everything even more awesome. Love you grandma and grandpa. I love you guys! Can't wait to talk u after the movie." The film, which is based on the campy '90s TV drama of the same name, follows Lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) and a brash new recruit (Efron) as the duo uncover a criminal plot that threatens the future of the beach. But unfortunately the R-rated film, which cost $69 million to make, may need more than the love of Efron's grandparents to make it big in the box office. According to FOX News, the movie, which was critically panned, has only earned $18.1 million over the weekend and is projected to collect $26.6 million by the close of Memorial Day. The box office's top slot this weekend has gone to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The elderly couple may be a little bit more jazzed to see their grandson in this movie, over the latest film he's been cast in. Earlier this month, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the High School Musical actor would be starring as infamous serial killer Ted Bundy in an upcoming psychological thriller, titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. The film will be told from the perspective of Bundy's longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. True crime fanatics will remember Kloepfer as the one who turned Bundy into authorities, though she continued to date him despite her growing suspicion that Bundy was involved in the disappearances of multiple young women in the 1970s. Not sure if Grandma and Grandpa will be seeing that one! (Eonline)

TV

How the Roseanne Revival Came Together, According to Laurie Metcalf. There are two trends viewers can't escape in the current TV landscape: superheroes and revivals. The latest revived show is Roseanne, the beloved comedy is returning for eight episodes on ABC midseason, 20 years after its last episode aired in May 1997. The entire original cast -- Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson -- will return for the revival. According to Metcalf, the revival got off the ground in a pretty simple manner. "I think what happened was, John Goodman went on The Talk, Sara Gilbert's show, and they did a little parody, like a 30-seconds parody and it went over really well," she told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. "Then one of the anchors on the show asked John if he would consider doing a reunion and he said, 'Of course I would.'" That appearance Gilbert thinking, Metcalf said. "Then Sara made calls to everybody and everybody said yes," she said. "So it came together really fast." It's been 20 years since the show last aired and since then, Metcalf has appeared in numerous projects, on stage and off, including HBO's Getting On and her Tony-nominated role in A Doll's House: Part 2. Will it be hard to get back into Aunt Jackie's skin for Roseanne? "I think of Barney Fife, I guess," she said referring to Don Knotts character from The Andy Griffith Show. "Jackie was just trying to do so well and couldn't accomplish things easily." "The Conners' joys and struggles are as relevant-and hilarious-today as they were then, and there's really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne," Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement when the revival was announced.

Still Star-Crossed: Get a First Look at the Post-Romeo and Juliet World of ABC's Newest Drama. Romeo and Juliet was just the beginning. Literally. Still Star-Crossed debuts in just a few days, picking up right where the classic Shakespearean tale leaves off, after teenage lovers Romeo and Juliet have died. However, the series, based on the book by Melinda Taub and from executive producer Shonda Rhimes, takes that ending in a bit of a new direction filled with "love, passion, deceit, and hate, and family, and war," according to star Lyshana Lynch. "At the end of the original story, the death of Romeo and Juliet healed both of the households," star Zuleikha Robinson says in the exclusive featurette. "However, in our story, the rifts get bigger." In the pilot, Prince Escalus (Sterling Sulieman), still desperate to resolve the feud between the Montague and Capulet families, forces one of Romeo's cousins, Benvolio (Wade Briggs), to marry one of Juliet's cousins, Rosaline (Lynch). Benvolio and Rosaline then take it upon themselves to try to prevent both the arranged marriage and the destruction of their families. "We see every other character that was involved in the original play deal with the loss of their children or their cousins or their siblings," says Briggs. "And we watch the house of Montague and the house of Capulet try to keep peace after such a tragic event." The series, which just so happens to be a gorgeous period piece, also stars Anthony Head, Ebonee Noel, Grant Bowler, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Medalion Rahimi, and Susan Woodbridge. Lucien Laviscount and Clara Rugaard also appear as Romeo and Juliet. Still Star-Crossed premieres Monday at 10 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)
