Sideshow: 2 weddings and an elephant
The event was hardly a shocker (they do have two children together), and the location was well-known (at dad Lionel's L.A. estate), but Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's weekend wedding did supply one surprise: a trained elephant. Was this meant as a kiddie
The event was hardly a shocker (they do have two children together), and the location was well-known (at dad Lionel's L.A. estate), but Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's weekend wedding did supply one surprise: a trained elephant. Was this meant as a kiddie ride? A euphemism for Hollywood? No one knows. But who has time to wonder, when a double mazel tov is in order for Celebrity Weekend Wedding No. 2! New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher and actress Joanna Garcia - of Better With You - did the deed in Palm Beach. More matrimony to come: Actress Eva Amurri tweeted that she's engaged to soccer dude Kyle Martino.
Another J's b-day
Baby machine Michelle Duggar (19 Kids and Counting) is celebrating her most recent's first birthday, which is miraculous in a couple of ways. First, Josie was born at 25 weeks. Second, ponder the fact that Michelle is on the hook for remembering 19 kids' birthdays. And that doesn't include husband-boy Jim Bob (What, you don't think he qualifies? He has two first names!), or her grandchild.
Caught on camera
Charlie Gilmour, progeny of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, was arrested after photographs showed him climbing London's Cenotaph and swinging from the Union flag. The Cambridge University student said Sunday he was "mortified by his moment of idiocy" during last week's tuition protests.

If you care nothing else about mom specimen Kate Gosselin, know this: When you are forced to see her face for the 10th time this week in whatever celeb rag you read on the treadmill, you will no longer be confronted with the worst haircut of all time. She recently visited Ted Gibson's New York spa, and let's just say, it's better.
No need to force it
The latest chapter in The Chronicles of Narnia saga may have won the weekend box-office race - $24.5 million domestically - but The Voyage of the Dawn Treader had a weak debut compared to the first two installments. 20th Century Fox exec Chris Aronson said the distributor had to "resurrect this franchise and get moviegoers back to that feeling of affection they had for the first movie." Hey, movie execs - not every book is meant for movie-dom. Exhibits A, B and C: Eat, Pray, Love; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; Diary of a Wimpy Kid. . . . In other movie news: The American Film Institute's year's-top-10 list, released Sunday, included Black Swan, The Social Network, 127 Hours, and, yes, Toy Story 3.
