Keegan-Michael Key Marries Elisa Pugliese. Keegan-Michael Key is a married man! The comedian and one-half of Keey and Peele tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Elisa Pugliese, he announced over Twitter on Friday. "Best. Day. Ever," Key captioned a snapshot of the newly minted bride and groom sharing a kiss outside. Elisa, an accomplished Hollywood producer and director, wore a vintage-inspired bridal gown and strappy heels, while the groom looked suave as ever in a navy blue suit. "Dear Mr. Key, I love you more every day," Elisa gushed in her own post "Sincerely, Mrs. Key." Last November, E! News exclusively revealed that Keegan-Michael had popped the question. "She shows me every day that each one of us has the ability to help make the world a better place," Keegan-Michael shared on Twitter. "I'm the luckiest man ever. She said yes!" Key was previously married to Cynthia Blaise for more than 15 years up until 2015. Congratulations to the happy couple. Now off to the honeymoon! (Eonline)

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham Deny Divorce Rumors. David Beckham and Victoria Beckham are not divorcing, despite rumors to the contrary. The fashion designer posted a message to her husband on Instagram saying she "loves and misses" him, just as various reports began circulating that the power couple is set to split. "There is no statement due or divorce," a spokeswoman for the couple told The Sun Friday. "This is just fake social media news. This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time." The couple's rep reiterated to E! News that the speculation is "absolutely not true." The Beckhams, who tied the knot in 1999, have four children together. The couple returned to the U.K. a few years ago, where Victoria continues to work on her eponymous fashion line and the retired athlete prepares to launch a Major League Soccer team in Florida. "David and I both respect that each of us are very, very busy; we are both running big businesses, but we do put the phones down, and sometimes we just talk," Victoria told ELLE last year, adding that "a good partnership" means helping each other find balance by saying, "You know what? I've got this." In a Good Morning America interview in January, David said he plans to spend "a huge amount of time in Miami." He also admitted his parenting style differs from his wife's approach. "I'm definitely a little softer with the kids. I let them get away with a little more than Victoria does." This isn't the first time Beckhams have faced split rumors, but as always, they stand united. David and Victoria would rather focus on charitable endeavors, as opposed to debunking divorce rumors. To benefit the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, via Omaze, the A-list couple are auctioning off the outfits they wore to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. (Eonline)

George Clooney Tears Up During Amal Clooney's Speech for His AFI Life Achievement Award. Another day, another accolade for the one and only George Clooney! Several of the A-list actor's co-stars and close friends gathered to celebrate as he received the AFI Life Achievement Award on Thursday evening. A special tribute event was held in his honor at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Attendees included Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Jimmy Kimmel, Cate Blanchett, Anna Kendrick, Don Cheadle, Laura Dern, Jane Seymour, Bill Murray, and Julianna Margulies. Former President Barack Obama also appeared in a pre-taped video message. "George Clooney is a good man, a good citizen and an outstanding maker of film," he shared while kicking off the tribute. George walked the red carpet alongside wife Amal Clooney, who looked radiant in a pale pink Prada gown. Inside, the couple sat front and center alongside their celebrity pals and George's parents. The duo held hands and exchanged a few kisses throughout the evening. Before Amal took the stage to give a speech about her husband, George gave her a sweet peck on the lips. During her speech, the barrister spoke about George's gentlemanly demeanor, his generosity, his fight for justice and his love of a good prank. She also spoke about her admiration for her spouse. "Although George's modesty attributes much of the success we are celebrating here tonight to luck, I think it's incredible talent and character that got him here and these attributes also make him an amazing husband and father," she said. Amal recalled how she met George when she was 35 and "starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster." Soon, it became clear to her that "no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else." "I couldn't sleep when we were apart and I'm told that I would display a particular grin and head-tilt when reading his text messages or the letters that he would hide in my bag," she said. "Five years later, none of that has changed. He is the person who has my complete admiration and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time." As Amal continued her speech, George started to tear up. "My love, what I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed. And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life," she added. "You fill our home with laughter and happiness and that's even before the children have worked out that 'dada' is actually Batman, a talking fox, and friends with Mary Poppins." She then concluded, "I'm so proud of you my love. Congratulations on this great honor that you're receiving tonight. I'm proud of you, but I also know that when our children find out not only what you have done, but who you are, they will be so proud of you too." The big night came one day after George and Amal celebrated their twins' first birthday. According to People, George joked the young ones may have partied a little too hard. "Well, the kids got drunk. I came home they had a bottle of booze. They're feeling better today," the Ocean's Eleven star told reporters at the AFI tribute, per the magazine. He also said raising kids with his wife is "really fun" and "perfect." While he joked the 1-year-old babies "are making me a cake already" and "working on a card" for Father's Day," People reported, Amal said the celebration would be a "surprise." Sadly, not all of Clooney's famous friends could be there for the big day. While Julia Roberts was scheduled to present George with the award, his Money Monster co-star was ultimately unable to attend due to a change in production schedule. "Julia Roberts is regretfully unable to attend this evening's AFI Life Achievement Award honoring George Clooney," a statement from AFI read. "Ms. Roberts is currently in production and due to a change in schedule, it was not possible to participate as planned." Shirley MacLaine presented the award in Roberts' place. Previous recipients of the AFI Life Achievement Award include Diane Keaton, composer John Williams, Steve Martin and Jane Fonda. TNT will air The 46th AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to George Clooney on Thursday, June 21, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Congratulations, George! (Eonline)

Longtime FOX News analyst Charles Krauthammer says he's been diagnosed with terminal cancer and only has a few weeks to live ... but wants everyone to know, "It was a wonderful life." The 68-year-old political commentator says he's been "uncharacteristically silent these past ten months" after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen. Doctors initially thought the surgery was successful, but recent tests show the cancer is aggressive and spreading rapidly and he only has weeks to live. "My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over," Krauthammer wrote in an open letter. Krauthammer -- who is paralyzed from a diving incident decades ago -- thanked his employers, his colleagues, readers and viewers and left this final thought. "I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living." "I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended." (TMZ)

Anthony Bourdain Dies by Suicide at Age 61. CNN confirmed Bourdain's death on Friday and said the cause of death was suicide. "It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," a spokesperson for the network said in a statement Friday morning. "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time." In 2013, Bourdain began hosting the food and travel show Parts Unknown on CNN; he was working on a new episode in Strasbourg, France, when he took his own life. Bourdain's close friend, French chef ric Ripert, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning. "Tony was an exceptional talent," CNN President Jeff Zucker said in an email to employees. "Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it." A Travel Channel spokesperson added, "We are stunned and deeply saddened to hear that the world is now without its global ambassador, Anthony Bourdain. He was an incredible talent who showed us beautiful, gritty, complicated and delicious places in every corner of the world. His wit and perspective will be missed. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time." Publisher Daniel Halpern, president of Ecco, gave E! News a statement regarding the chef's death. "I've known Tony as an author and friend for many years. He not only revolutionized the memoir genre with his groundbreaking and iconic work Kitchen Confidential, he supported emerging voices and chefs with his imprint Anthony Bourdain Books," he said. "His death is a great personal tragedy. Our thoughts are with his daughter and family at this difficult time." Season eleven of Parts Unknown premiered on the network last month. The hit series has received five Emmy Awards (from 11 nominations), and in 2013, Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain and Parts Unknown for "expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure." They praised him for being "irreverent, honest, curious, never condescending..." Born on June 25, 1956, in New York City, Bourdain spent his formative years in Leonia, N.J. The son of a Columbia Records music executive and a New York Times staff editor, his love affair with food began during a family vacation to France, when he tried his first oyster on a local fisherman's boat. Years later, Bourdain dropped out of Vassar College and enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 1978. In the following decades, he ran a number of popular kitchens in New York City, including One Fifth Avenue, Sullivan's and the Supper Club. In his twenties, when he was on his own, Bourdain became addicted to drugs. "I was a complete a--hole. Selfish, larcenous, druggy, loud, stupid, insensitive and someone you would not want to have known. I would have robbed your medicine cabinet had I been invited to your house," he said during a Reddit AMA session in 2013. Calling himself a "very unusual case," Bourdain added, "Most people who kick heroin and cocaine have to give up on everything. Maybe cause my experiences were so awful in the end, I've never been tempted to relapse." Bourdain also suffered financial hardships for much of his life. "I don't want to sound like I'm bragging about this, but the sad fact is, until 44 years of age, I never had any kind of savings account," he told Wealth Simple in 2017. "I'd always been under the gun. I'd always owed money. I'd always been selfish and completely irresponsible." Weed "was a major expense," he added, costing him a few hundred dollars a week. Looking back, the fact that I'd been smoking weed heavily since I was 14 might have had something to do with my relative lack of ambition." Before Kitchen Confidential was published, Bourdain confessed he was "constantly in debt." It wasn't until years after he found success that he started saving. "The reports of my net worth are about ten times overstated. I think the people who calculate these things assume that I live a lot more sensibly than I do. I mean, I don't live recklessly -- I have one car. But I don't deprive myself simple pleasures. I'm not a haggler. There's not enough time in the world. I tend to go for the quickest, easiest, what's comfortable. I want it now," he admitted. "Time's running out." Bourdain gained notoriety in 1999 after he published a New Yorker article, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." It became a best-selling book in 2000, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, leading to shows on Food Network, Travel Channel, and, eventually, CNN. Adventurous and outspoken, Bourdain won over millions through his numerous books and essays, as well as by hosting A Cook's Tour and No Reservations and guest starring on Top Chef. "I joke about not giving a f--k being a very good business model for me, but it's true. The absolute certainty that nobody was going to buy or read or care about Kitchen Confidential was what allowed me to write it. I didn't have to think about what people expected. I didn't care. And as a result, I was able to write this book quickly and without tormenting myself. And that seemed to work out and I learned from that experience and I tried very hard," he told First We Feast in 2016. "Whether I'm meeting with a group of television executives or telling a story, I don't think about 'the fans.' I don't think about what audiences expect, and I'm not afraid of what will they think of me, or what if they don't like it and I'm not on television anymore." The celebrated author and chef was married twice in his lifetime, first to Nancy Putkoski (19852005), then to Ottavia Busia (20072016); he and Busa welcomed a daughter in 2007. Bourdain is also survived by his girlfriend, Asia Argento, whom he met in Rome two years ago. Bourdain's tragic death happened after fashion designer Kate Spade hanged herself in an apparent suicide Tuesday. "Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years," her husband said in a statement in the wake of her death. "She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives..." (Eonline)
