Snooki and Jionni get married

Also in Tattle: A ballet remembers Hugo Chavez, Disney may be thawing on "Frozen" sequel, and more.

THERE WILL BE no more singles nookie for Snooki.

The former "Jersey Shore" star also known as Nicole Polizzi married boyfriend/baby-daddy Jionni LaValle in a church ceremony Saturday in East Hanover, N.J., about 15 miles west of New York City.

The Record reported that among the bridesmaids were "Jersey Shore" castmates Sammi Giancola, Deena Cortese and Jenni "JWoww" Farley.

A few dozen onlookers waited outside the church.

Typical of Snooki's "Go big or go home" personality, 17 groomsmen, and 15 bridesmaids in black gowns with bows, attended the ceremony, which had a "Great Gatsby" theme.

(Note to members of the wedding party: "The Great Gatsby" is also a book.)

According to Us magazine, Snooki, 26, wore an off-white, traditional lace gown from Bridal Reflections for the ceremony, then changed to a more "fun and 'Gatsby'-themed" dress, also from Bridal Reflections, for the reception.

At the party, music was provided by the 18-piece Time Machine, "North Jersey's Premier Party Band," according to their website.

Snooki and Jionni have two children, ages 2 and 2 months.

Trailer spark

That new 88-second "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" trailer you geeked out to a few days ago online?

It was a fake.

May the farce be with you.


* In life, Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez often captivated supporters by bursting into song, sometimes dance.

Now that he's gone, supporters are turning to the musical arts to help immortalize him.

A state-sponsored biographical ballet premiered Saturday, with dozens of performers recounting Chavez's life, from humble roots to failed coup, and on to international fame as leader of Venezuela's socialist revolution.

The hourlong show, presented by Venezuela's National Dance Company, blends classic and contemporary choreography, and draws on a range of music, including Venezuelan folk melodies, African rhythms and symphonic scores.

The ballet ends with Chavez converted into a disembodied force of justice and socialism.

Sorry, but we'll take "The Nutcracker."

Lewis Carroll's original handwritten, illustrated manuscript for Alice in Wonderland will travel to the U.S. to mark its 150th anniversary.

The British Library said on Thanksgiving, also known in London as Thursday, that it will loan the book - presented by the author to Alice Liddell, who inspired it - to New York's Morgan Library & Museum and Philadelphia's Rosenbach Museum next year.

The work, which bears its original title of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, was bought by an American dealer in 1928 and returned to Britain in 1948.

The British Library also will display the book in late 2015 as part of an exhibition marking 150 years since its 1865 publication.

The library plans a major exhibition next year marking the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, which Tattle learned about in a repeat episode of "My Favorite Martian."

* "Let It Go" singer Idina Menzel has told Britain's Guardian newspaper that Disney has begun working on a sequel to "Frozen."

"Still Frozen"?

"Frozen 2: Twice as Ice"?

"Getting Warmer: Elsa Fights Climate Change"?

* The London Telegraph says that Danish director Lars von Trier, who used to drink a bottle of vodka a day, says he is worried that his film career will be over now that he has quit drinking and drugging.

Tattle's sad to learn just now that von Trier needed booze and drugs to make his movies. Such knowledge might have helped us get through them.
