How Charlotte Casiraghi Channeled Grandmother Grace Kelly at Her Wedding. Grace Kelly's granddaughter is married! Charlotte Casiraghi wed film producer Dimitri Rassam over the weekend. The bride wore a strapless white Chanel dress for one of her big day looks and seemed to honor her late grandmother with her jewelry. The 32-year-old daughter of Princess Caroline wore a diamond necklace that appeared to be the same piece the actress wore when she wed Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 and became Princess Grace of Monaco. Casiraghi tied the knot with Rassam on June 1 in a civil ceremony at The Prince's Palace of Monaco -- the same place her grandmother said, "I do." For the ceremony, Casiraghi donned a gray dress by Anthony Vaccarello for Yves Saint Laurent and wore her hair down. As Brides noted, some fashion lovers compared the brocade design to the brocade look her grandmother wore on her own wedding day. As for the groom, he opted for a sharp navy suit. The couple then changed their ensembles for the celebration at La Vigie. Casiraghi wore the Chanel number for the party, and her new husband wore a matching white tuxedo. The bride's makeup was also Chanel and her hair was styled by John Nollet Paris. It certainly has been a busy time for the couple. The two welcomed their first child together, Balthazar, in October. Casiraghi also has a son, Raphal, from a previous relationship. Congratulations to the happy couple! (Eonline)

January Jones slammed for comments on anxiety meme. January Jones is being criticized for comments she made in response to a meme about anxiety. Instagram account MyTherapistSays posted a photo Sunday that read, "Me scrolling through Instagram finding memes relating to my irrational fears and anxiety" with a quote from "Friends"' Ross Geller that said, "Ah, humor based on my pain. Ah, ha, ha." Jones, 41, commented, "What is everyone nervous about? We all die. Find love or don't. Have fun or don't. Eat food and then get rid of it. It's easy." Her rep could not be reached for comment. However, commenters didn't find Jones' remarks funny. Many bashed the actress for seemingly diminishing the seriousness of mental health. One user commented, "Saying that is so naive, and so harmful to everyone who is trying to cope with a mental illness. Anxiety is a serious medical condition... Please don't contribute to the stigma. Educate yourself. Show some compassion." Others called out Jones for her privilege, saying, "... said the thin, rich, attractive white woman!" and "wow you are way out of touch with the real world and real people." (PageSix)

Jenelle Evans and David Eason were threatened at their home moments after losing custody of their daughter ... when they received a white powder substance by mail. According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, cops responded to Jenelle and David's North Carolina home back on May 15 to report the suspicious package. It appears cops responded to a 911 call made by David. The couple reported the substance just moments after they lost custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley. CPS removed her around 11:30 AM ... and cops responded for the white powder around noon. The case remains under investigation, and it's unclear if the powder was a real threat or a hoax. As we've reported ... the ex-'Teen Mom' star and David also lost custody of 9-year-old Jace and 4-year-old Kaiser after a judge decided there were serious issues with the couple that put the children at risk. The mailed threat is just the latest fallout since David brutally killed the family's French bulldog, Nugget. In addition to their custody issues, MTV fired Jenelle from "Teen Mom 2." As we first reported ... the couple has said they'll go to therapy in an effort to regain custody of the kids. (TMZ)

One of the men who was wrongfully convicted as part of the Central Park Five says karma's a bitch for ex-prosecutor Linda Fairstein, who's getting crucified on social media in the wake of a new show about the case and its aftermath. Raymond Santana -- who was one of the teenagers arrested, prosecuted and eventually convicted in connection to the brutal 1989 rape and beating of a female jogger -- tells TMZ ... the online movement to #CancelLindaFairstein and boycott her books is warranted. Fans have taken to Instagram and other platforms, calling for retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble to remove Fairstein's book collection from their shelves on the heels of Netflix's new series, "When They See Us"  which covers the how the case was handled by Fairstein and others, as well as how it impacted Raymond and the rest of the so-called CP5. He believes Fairstein who went on to a successful career as a writer of children's books and other works  is facing her comeuppance right now, which he takes no issue with. In fact, he says it quite bluntly . . . "Even if it's 30 years later, she has to pay for her crime." Fairstein was one of the lead prosecutors on the case, and she reportedly sealed confessions from the boys at the time under what they described as duress and pressure from police. All five men were later fully exonerated, despite having spent years behind bars. Raymond also takes a jab at the many reporters and civilians who were quick to label them as criminals before a trial got underway, including Donald Trump ... who called for their execution in a newspaper ad that circulated quickly after the murder. Raymond says he and his brothers are trying to make the most of the renewed attention. He and the others have even gotten behind a neat clothing campaign called "The Brotherhood Tee:, which supports The Innocence Project . . . of which RS is a strong supporter. (TMZ)

Multiple NBA teams have had high-level conversations about doing away with the term "owner" over the past year -- and at least two teams have already made the switch, TMZ Sports has learned. We're told the conversations essentially center around the idea that the term, owner -- in a league where the majority of the players are black -- feels racially insensitive. Several high-ranking sources from multiple teams tell us people have been talking about the issue for a while but it gained steam in late 2018 when Draymond Green appeared on LeBron James' show, "The Shop," and argued against teams using the term. "You shouldn't say owner," Green said ... noting the title should be changed to either CEO, Chairman or something like Majority Shareholder. During the show, Jon Stewart agreed and explained, "When your product is purely the labor of people then owner sounds like something that is of a futile nature." Around the time that episode aired, the Philadelphia 76ers made the decision to change their titles from Owners to Managing Partners and 76ers Co-owners are now called Limited Partners. In Los Angeles, Steve Ballmer -- who was billed as Owner for the first couple of years after he took over the Clippers -- is now listed as Chairman on the team's website. It appears that change occurred in early 2018. Several teams are still using the term owner -- and we're told there's no real pressure coming from the NBA to change their titles. What's interesting ... Draymond's team -- the Golden State Warriors -- still lists Joe Lacob as the owner of that team. We reached out to the NBA ... and a spokesperson for the league provided us the following statement. "We refer to the owners of our teams as Governors; each team is represented on our Board of Governors." (TMZ)
