That Catholic wedding that Katie's folks were hoping for may not happen after all. The couple are supposedly tying the knot the weekend of Nov. 16 in the Italian village of Bracciano near Rome. Rumor has it they had planned two ceremonies, a traditional Catholic ceremony on Saturday followed by a Scientology event the next day. But now, it turns out that Tom's divorce is getting in the way. Here's more:
The priest with jurisdiction over the dreamy lakeside castle tipped as the chosen location for the wedding says his parish won't marry Cruise, and the mayor says she can't because the couple haven't done the official paperwork.
Mayor Patrizia Riccioni told Reuters she would like the wedding to take place, but that it was unlikely any celebration would be blessed with state recognition given that the couple have not provided the needed documents. "I don't think it will be legal," she said. "On an Italian level, there are papers and documents that we certainly don't have (for a wedding)."
But Cruise and Holmes' Los Angeles-based publicist dismissed the notion that the American couple's nuptials depended on official sanctioning by Italian authorities. "They are making all the proper and necessary arrangements for their marriage to be legal," said publicist Arnold Robinson.
The priest with responsibility for Bracciano has said that whatever ceremony Cruise and Holmes have, it cannot be Catholic because Cruise is divorced and does not have parish permission. "Cruise is divorced," Monsignor Nicola Fiorentini told Italian media. "Even if the actor were not divorced, another fundamental requirement to validate the rite would be missing: the authorization of the parish."
Tom isn't one to give up easily on these things. I'm sure he'll find a way around it. Guess we'll all just have to stay tuned....
Britney has had quite the week, and we love it all! She showed up looking fabulous on Letterman and then shockingly filed for divorce from K-Fed. Now Brit has apparently put her Malibu mansion on the market for $13.5 million. She bought the house when Kevin was unemployed for $6.9 million in 2004. The new lucky owner will not only get to live in the spot Britney once called home, but will get to enjoy an outdoor kitchen, spa, gym, tennis courts, a $150,000 nursery and a recording studio.
Jack Black was king of the funny last night in Los Angeles for his premiere of Tenacious D: In the Pick of Destiny. He might not have had ponys and hookers to escort him down the red carpet, but he's pretty entertaining all by himself. The film that Jack wrote with comedic partner Kyle Glass, is about two slackers on a quest to be the world's greatest rock stars. It stars Ben Stiller, Amy Poehler and Tim Robbins and opens November 17th.
And tons of stars came out to see the film. For more pics including Kristin Cavallari, Sarah Silverman and Jeremy Piven just read more
JT is just one of many celebs growing out his facial hair, as we saw at the MTV Europe Awards. Obviously Cammie doesn't seem to mind or it would be gone by now. So, I know this is a difficult question, but which look do you like better? Happy Friday!
Earth Day isn't until April but celebs are really coming out and showing their support for the environment. First there was the Environmental Media Awards and now the Partner Awards Gala which honors those that support our marine environment. Salma Hayek, Alyson Hannigan and Kate Walsh all showed up for the event at Esquire House in Beverly Hills looking fabulous.

It really doesn't get any cuter than Jen and Violet. Look how much fun these two are having together as they play in the park. I wonder why Ben had to miss out on the mother daughter play date on this lovely sunny day.

Beyonce was a busy lady yesterday. After doing TRL she headed out with boyfriend Jay-Z to celebrate the One-Year Anniversary of the 40/40 Club. As usual, Beyonce looks super hot. And things are only going to get hotter for the budding actress. She may go lesbian in a movie with Eva Longoria. Here's more:
The pop star and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES actress have been approached to star in period piece TIPPING THE VELVET, to be directed by SOFIA COPPOLA. Based on a raunchy SARAH WATERS novel it tells the tale of an 1890s music hall star and her lover. Longoria says, "Yes it's true, we're talking about doing that. It's such a wonderful novel, a beautiful love story. Knowles adds, "We've had BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN so the time is right for this divine novel to get the same treatment."
Once Britney gets going, as expected, she's hard to slow down. After a whirlwind week in NYC and saying goodbye to Kevin, she is now headed south to Miami. Brit has been working hard on her upcoming album and we're so excited to hear it - this will be Brit's first original album since In the Zone in 2003. She told People in August that we should expect it to be "cooler than ever-fun, upbeat and sexy." We can't wait!
