Boy Meets World Star Danielle Fishel Has a Picture-Perfect Wedding. It's official: Danielle Fishel and Jensen Karp are married! Fishel, best known for her role as Topanga Matthews in the beloved TV series Boy Meets World, married Karp Sunday after a seven-month engagement. Jillian McQuerrey photographed the newlyweds, who shared several pictures with fans via social media. Union3 Event Productions' Lisa Gaskarth was hired to help plan the special day, which seemingly went off without a hitch. Laurie Heaps did Fishel's hair, while Julie Cuomo did the bride's makeup. "Today I married my soulmate. We were surrounded by family and friends and it was the best day of my life. I also ate 3 donuts after dinner. Unrelated," Karp wrote in his Instagram caption. "@daniellefishel, I love you so much and thank you for giving me this smile." On Twitter, the groom added, "Big life moment happened on Sunday. I am beyond thankful to have this angel by my side for the rest of our lives. @daniellefishel now has both my [heart] and my last name." Fishel summed up the picture-perfect day more simply, tweeting, "That's Mrs. Karp to you." Famous guests included Lauren Lapkus and Angela Trimbur, the latter of whom shared highlights from the wedding via Instagram Stories. For example, Trimbur took a picture of a cocktail napkin, which included some "fun facts" about the couple: "1. They first met in '95 at Calabasas High School but were only acquaintances. 2. They both like the thermostat set to 68 degrees. 3. Jerry Springer and Ricki Lake were technically present for their engagement. 4. Jensen has a fish tattoo to represent both of their aquatic last names. 5. They have a dog named Brunch and a cat named Bill. Brunch's nickname is Bubalah and Bill is Fat Panther. 5. Pringles and Trolli sent them product after Danielle and Jensen commented on their social media pages. 7. They recently bought a home together, only blocks from where they were raised. 8. Their first major vacation together was to Thailand. They didn't like it there. Don't tell anyone." It's unclear if any of Fishel's Boy Meets World or Girl Meets World co-stars were invited. Asked to describe her wedding, the bride-to-be told Us Weekly in September, "I am going to say that it's not traditional. It's a little bit quirky, just like we are." With Karp as her partner, the 37-year-old Disney Channel actress added, "I am on cloud nine. He is the most amazing partner anybody could ever hope for...I'm thrilled. I'm really looking forward to building a life with him." Fishel admitted she had already "slipped a couple of times" and referred to Karp as her "husband" prematurely. "I am done with 'fiance.' I can't wait to call him my husband," she said. "The fiance period is a weird period where you're like, 'Yeah, we're more official than when we were boyfriend and girlfriend, but I want to call you my husband.' So, I'm looking forward to it." This is the second marriage for Fishel, who divorced Tim Belusko in 2016. She began dating Karp, a producer on Drop the Mic, the following year, and she accepted his proposal in 2018. (Eonline)

Josh Brolin's Wife Kathryn Gives Birth to Daughter Westlyn Reign Brolin. Parenting is a snap, right? Let's just hope Josh Brolin is a better father to "Baby Bean" than Thanos was to Gamora. The Avengers: Infinity War actor, 50, and his wife, Kathryn Brolin, 31, welcomed their first child. The proud parents announced the joyous news via Instagram, where they'd each been documenting Kathryn's pregnancy ever since they spilled the beans six months ago. While the couple has nicknamed their daughter "Bean," they've actually named her Westlyn Reign Brolin. On Sunday, Kathryn posted the sweetest Instagram video of baby Westlyn smiling. "Our family's newest (and tiniest) member," she wrote. "Nothing compares to this... nothing. My heart is totally different forever. @joshbrolin thanks for this little life of ours." This is the first child for Kathryn and the second for Josh, who has two adult children with his first wife Alice Adair; Josh did not have kids with Diane Lane, whom he divorced five years ago. When Josh announced Kathryn's pregnancy in May, the Deadpool 2 actor joked on Instagram, "There's a new sheriff in town, and she's no bigger than a sweet potato. Hang on to your hats." The couple spent the next few months nesting as they awaited the arrival of "Baby Bean." More recently, Josh shared a video of his pregnant wife with his Instagram followers. "I have the greatest soul mate you can have. Bouts of darkness hit and we/she powers through it. Then moments of the power of this miracle hit and inevitable moves come. Bean. Oh, Bean. You have the greatest mama of all. You lucky lil work of art. We know you're soon to reveal yourself. We can't wait," the actor wrote. "We are grateful beyond measure. I am grateful beyond measure." In her final trimester, Kathryn shared two underwater portraits Michael Muller had taken of her in the pool -- one of which showed her nude. Feeling "charged, ethereal, exuberant," she reflected on her pregnancy Oct. 10. "I am truly in love with this homestretch, as uncomfortable and emotional as it's become, because I know she's too big now to stay in for much longer and is readying to join us out here in the world," said Kathryn, Josh's ex-assistant. "We jumped in and Willy Wonka showed us around his electric underwater paradise before we welcome her." Parenting requires sacrifice, which is something both Josh and Kathryn realized before "Baby Bean" was born. For example, he backed out of Chicago's ACE Comic Con two months ago to be by her side. "I regretfully inform you that I'm choosing to stay home because of how close it is to the due date of our little Bean," he said on Instagram. "I was really looking forward to going, as it's something that I haven't done post-release of both Deadpool and Infinity War, but I will try and reschedule for a later date, when it makes more sense regarding my familial situation." Josh, who married Kathryn in 2016, will return to the big screen in next year's Avengers sequel. Congratulations to the happy family! (Eonline)

Jason Aldean and Wife Brittany Kerr Reveal Their Daughter's Name at Baby Shower. There's another baby Aldean on the way, and now we know her name! On Sunday, country singer Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany Kerr Aldean celebrated their daughter at Brittany's baby shower. In August, the family revealed their second child together -- and Jason's fourth -- would be a girl. Now we know her name: Navy Rome Williams! Brittany and 11-year-old Kendyl Aldean announced the name on Brittany's Instagram story earlier in the day. Brittany posted a photo on Instagram of the name Navy written out in lights and wrote, "Today we celebrate you, baby girl." Right before the official sex reveal, Kendyl and her big sis Keeley Aldean suspected that they'd be gaining a baby sister. "I think a girl because you've been a bit sicker with this one," Keeley said. Jason and Brittany welcomed their first child, Memphis Aldean Williams, into the world Dec. 1, 2017. They came up with his name because, as Jason explained, he's "always been a big Elvis Presley fan." Brittany was diagnosed with endometriosis, so she and Jason turned to IVF treatment to have Memphis. "The IVF was probably harder than the actual pregnancy, for me, because it was just such a roller coaster and so difficult," Brittany told People in July. The couple announced Brittany's newest pregnancy on Instagram by using Memphis as a model because she uploaded a photo of him on Instagram wearing a onesie that said "Big Brother." Congratulations to the Aldean family! (Eonline)

Long Island Medium's Theresa Caputo Opens Up About Relationship With Larry After Divorce. Theresa Caputo's romantic relationship with Larry Caputo may be over. But that doesn't mean their friendship is too. Back in December 2017, the TLC reality star and her husband of 28 years revealed they were legally separating. And this past summer, fans learned that the couple was in the middle of divorce proceedings. While Theresa and Larry have tried to keep details about their split private, the couple will have their first reunion in nearly eight months on the all new Long Island Medium. "I was going out to do the celebrity readings [in Los Angeles] and I wanted to just catch up," Theresa shared with E! News exclusively before the episode airs. "We talk, we text so to be able to just sit down and be able to reconnect in person was really great." Although the episode was filmed a while ago, Theresa insists that the pair remains friendly today. "I just spoke to Larry last week," she shared with us. "There is no purpose in being angry and being mad. We have over 30 years together and you just can't forget about that. You know we still have to honor and treasure that and more importantly, respect that." These days, Theresa remains focused on her career that includes a tour across the country including a stop at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on January 26, 2019. And for those wondering if she's dipping her feet in the dating pool, it's still a bit too soon. "Let me finish getting divorced and then you can look for me on Tinder. How's that?" Theresa joked to us. And while fans may be used to seeing Theresa deliver messages from spirit at various locations throughout New York and New Jersey, the TLC star knew she also had to share the highs and lows of her personal life on the small screen. "We decided almost eight years ago to share our lives on the show and of course [the split] was really, super personal. But so was having a colonoscopy," she shared with a chuckle. "I never thought in a million years that I would be getting divorced." Theresa continued, "We worked hard on it... [We were] able to come out of this and be friends. I'm incredibly proud of both of us and how he has handled the whole situation, on and off camera." Long Island Medium airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. only on TLC. (Eonline)

NeNe Leakes Reveals Her Husband Gregg Has Stage 3 Colon Cancer. NeNe Leakes revealed her husband, Gregg Leakes, has stage three colon cancer on Sunday's season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. While the couple went public with his cancer battle this summer, they'd kept his exact diagnosis under wraps. During this weekend's show, NeNe revealed her husband experienced heart issues last year; however, the two got the problem "fixed" and thought their worries were behind them. Then, on Cinco de Mayo, Gregg started experiencing "excruciating pain" and was hospitalized. That's when the two received the news. "We just weren't prepared to hear that," NeNe said. Gregg also opened up about his health issues during the show. "They cut my colon out, [and] my heart got bigger," he recalled to his wife, adding that the doctors had removed "most of it." "I don't need it," he later added. "It's gone. It was infected." In addition, NeNe got candid about needing to stay strong for her spouse. "It's a very hard role to take care of someone," she admitted. "I feel like, if I crumble, then Gregg and Brentt -- it's going to be over. I just feel like I have to be the strong voice." She then added, "I put on a brave face, but I have my moments in my bedroom, usually alone. I've had many moments in my car. If my car could talk it'd be like, 'This bitch cries too much.'" Still, NeNe said she's relied on her faith to help her get through this difficult time. At one point, the Bravo hit showed the couple meeting with a few members of their prayer group and recounting his hospital visit. "I guess the scariest part about all of this is when we got to the hospital and the doctor saying that, 'We need to do surgery on you tonight or you ain't going to make it,'" Gregg recalled. "I went over and prayed to God and I told Him, 'If it's time, let's go,' "'I don't fear death, I don't want to go. If my work is finished here, take care of them, let's go.'" Tearing up, he then revealed he wrote a note that he asked his doctor to give to NeNe if he didn't survive. "Writing that note was the hardest thing I ever did in my life," he said. "But, you never know what's in you until you're at that door. I never thought I had it in me -- to fight cancer. Now, I'm going to beat cancer's ass." (Eonline)

Mac Miller's cause of death has been revealed. The 26-year-old rapper -- who was found dead in his Studio City, California, home on Sept. 7 -- died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, PEOPLE confirms. The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner ruled that Miller's death was accidental and due to mixed drug toxicity, they said in a statement Monday. The autopsy was completed three days after the star's death and his body was released to his family, according to Los Angeles County coroner's spokeswoman Sarah Ardalani. A source previously told PEOPLE Miller, born Malcolm James McCormick, had gone into cardiac arrest after appearing to suffer a drug overdose. At the time, PEOPLE confirmed that paramedics never transported him to a hospital, and he had already died before he was found unresponsive and could not be revived. Miller's home was reportedly "swept clean" so that there would be no evidence of drug use, according to TMZ, which also reported that only a small amount of white powder was found in Miller's home when police searched for clues as to how he died. At the time, an insider told PEOPLE that Miller, who just dropped his fifth and final studio album Swimming on Aug. 3, spent the evening before his death watching football with friends. Miller's casual night with friends seemed so benign, "that's why this is such a shock," the insider said. "Everyone who he worked with was aware that he was delicate, but thought it was because of the new album, nerves, nothing like this." During his lifetime, the rapper was open about his battle with substance abuse. In a 2016 short documentary by music magazine The Fader, Miller explained how he came to rely so heavily on codeine-based cough syrup mixed with soda. "It started by me just sitting inside all day and then it's like, then you get bored. Then you're like, 'Well I could just be high, and I could have a whole adventure in this room,'" the "Self Care" rapper began. "I'm always like, if someone's like, 'You wanna try this?' I'm like, 'Yeah sure.' It f -- s you up when you have a bunch of money because you try a drug, you like it, then you can buy a lot of it. I went through about everything." Miller was arrested for DUI in May, less than a week after his split from ex Ariana Grande was made public, but the Los Angeles city attorney confirmed the charges would be dropped in the case. Last week, Mac Miller's legacy and music career were honored at his celebration of life concert benefitting the newly formed The Mac Miller Circles Fund. The star was remembered by many of his famous friends and former collaborators including Action Bronson, Anderson. Paak, Chance the Rapper, Dylan Reynolds, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D, John Mayer, Miguel, Njomza, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Thundercat, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign and Vince Staples. (People)

Shin Seong-il, Legendary South Korean Actor, Dies at 81. "Without understanding Shin Seong-il, it is hard to get a grasp of either Korean film history or Korean modern cultural history," says 'Oldboy' director Park Chan-wook. Legendary South Korean actor Shin Seong-il died on Sunday at the age of 81 after battling lung cancer for a year and a half. Shin starred in more than 500 works, including most recently 2013's Door to the Night, and has been hailed as "a living witness of Korean film history." "His name is synonymous with Korean cinema," says film critic Kim Si-moo. Oldboy director Park Chan-wook famously said of Shin: "If there is [... ] Gregory Peck in America and Alain Delon in France, we have Shin Seong-il. For all the times and places, never was there a country [in] that both film industry and art are so dependent on one person. Without understanding Shin Seong-il, it is hard to get a grasp of either Korean film history or Korean modern cultural history." Indeed in 1967 alone, Shin appeared in 51 films that opened in local cinemas, and he starred in 324 or about 27 percent of the 1,194 films that showed in Korea over eight years between 1964 and 1971. Born Kang Shin-young, Shin was born in Daegu, South Korea, on May 8, 1937. Having spent a rather ordinary childhood, Shin shot to immediate stardom through his debut piece A Romantic Papa (1960). During the Golden Age of Korean cinema, which spanned from the 1960s to 1970s, he enjoyed immense popularity as the country's biggest leading man. The film Only for You (1962) played a crucial role in allowing Shin to rise to further stardom while The Barefooted Young (1964) solidified his reputation as an "icon of youth." He also starred in Shin Sang-ok's The Eunuch (1968), which was invited to the Berlin Film Festival, and established himself as a more serious actor through acclaimed performances in films such as Im Kwon-taek's Kilsodeum (1986). Last year, the Busan International Film Festival, Asia's largest cinema event, opened a retrospective in Shin's honor. In 1964, Shin married actress Um Aeng-ran, which until this day is recognized as a nationwide event. The two were virtually the local equivalent of "Brangelina" in their glory days. Shin and Um never divorced but lived separately for a good part of their marriage; Um nevertheless is known to have stayed by his side in his battle against cancer. Shin's death has saddened many in the Korean film industry, especially since he was known to signed up for a role in Sohwakhaeong (working title). Slated to go into production next year, Lee Jang-ho is set to direct. "I spent my childhood with [Shin] and we worked in the industry together after I became an adult," actor Ahn Sung-ki, 66, told reporters during Shin's funeral at Ansan Hospital in Seoul on Sunday. "The script I hear is almost complete and I was really looking forward to starring with him in the film." Shin is survived by his wife, Um, 82, and their son and two daughters. (Hollywood Reporter)
