Kristen Klein recently shared her predictions of celebrity weddings that will be taking place in 2014!
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: ‘Theyve been engaged for so long (since April 2012) that even the rumors about their pending nuptials have died down.’
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux: ‘This couple has also been engaged since 2012 (August). Plagued by constant reports of trouble in paradise and, in contrast,speculation about a baby on the way, it may be a relief to put the rumor mill to rest.’
Lauren Conrad and William Tell: ‘The reality star turned fashion designer/lifestyle blogger got engaged to the ‘Something Corporate’ guitarist turned law student in October.’
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: ‘Engaged in October 2013, Kanye already revealed that theyre aiming for a summer 2014 wedding. With no budget constraints to worry about and top wedding planner Sharon Sacks likely handling the major elements, it shouldn’t be hard to pull it off.’
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have fuelled speculation they have reconciled.
The ‘Beauty and a Beat’ hitmaker and the ‘Spring Breakers’ actress split last year following a turbulent two-year relationship, but they were spotted together for the first time in months yesterday (02.01.14) riding segways in The Oaks, a gated community in Calabasas, California, where Justin lives.
Twitter user Nick Sanitsky posted a picture of the pair on the unusual mode of transport and wrote: ‘Bieber and Selena segwaying in the Oaks. She was so nice, so he yelled at us (sic)’
The social networker claimed the 19-year-old singer had ‘ruined’ his celebrity-spotting moment by being ‘rude’ to him, but he enjoyed seeing brunette stunner Selena.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: ‘Shoutout to @justinbieber for holding up all the traffic in the Oaks. Grow up
‘Thanks to @justinbieber told us to f*** off, and his bodyguards blocked the road, so hello to my new followers!
‘Gotta admit, I was kinda starstruck by @selenagomez but @justinbieber ruined the moment (sic)’
The pair’s reunion comes just weeks after Selena, 21, was said to be in a ‘bad place’ as she was still struggling to come to terms with their split.
A source explained: ‘Dealing with her breakup from Justin has still been affecting her and she’s been in a bit of a bad place recently.
‘Her family stepped in and basically advised her to either go to therapy or stay with them so they could watch over her. Her team agreed that family time would be best.’
A Princess Diana exhibition has been extended due to its popularity.
The collection, ‘Diana: A Celebration’, is currently on show at the Putnam Museum in Davenport, Iowa, in the US about the life of late Princess of Wales – who was killed in a car crash in 1997 – and it has been so popular with visitors the establishment has extended it for another three weeks.
The museum’s bosses were initially going to close the exhibition on Sunday (05.01.14) but they have decided to keep it open until January 26 to allow more visitors to take in the nine galleries and 150 objects.
All of the items are on loan from Diana’s ancestral home, Althorp Estate in Northamptonshire, central England.
Some of the pieces available to see at the exhibition include the princess’ iconic wedding dress she wore when she tied the knot with Prince Charles on July 29, 1981.
The couple later divorced in August 1996.
Charles and Diana’s sons, Princes William and Harry, will take possession of the collection’s items following the end of the exhibition’s worldwide tour in the summer.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth banned the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s dog from spending Christmas with the royal family.
The monarch asked her grandson Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine – who have six-month-old son Prince George together – to leave their beloved pet Lupo to stay behind at her parents’ home rather than join in the festivities at the queen’s Sandringham estate.
A source said: ‘The Queen made it clear that Lupo was not on the guest list. The duchess is especially fond of the puppy and was sad that he could not accompany them. He had to sit it out at her parents’ home in Berkshire.’
It is believed the queen made the decision to keep the peace, as new dogs have caused problems when visiting Sandringham in the past.
Last summer, Princess Beatrice’s terrier Max was attacked by the queen’s corgis, with the pooch coming close to losing an ear, and in 2003, another of the monarch’s beloved pets had to be put down after being savaged by her daughter Princess Anne’s bull terrier.
Dr Roger Mugford, the pet expert whose advice the queen has sought in the past, thinks it was sensible for Lupo to be left behind.
He told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: ‘Cocker spaniels are sociable by nature and good at getting along with other dogs, but the same isn’t always true of the Queen’s corgis.
‘The commotion of Christmas – the large number of people, the unfamiliar faces and all the distractions – can make them unpredictable. Another dog coming into their territory, with all of that going on, isn’t necessarily going to be welcomed by them.’

LOS ANGELES: Over the bustling post-Christmas weekend, Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continued to lead the box office, landing in the No. 1 slot for the third weekend in a row.
The Warner Bros. prequel earned $30 million, bringing the domestic gross to $190.3 million, according to studio estimates on Sunday.
Disney’s animated adventure, “Frozen,” took the No. 2 position, earning $28.9 million over the weekend and $248.4 million domestically after six weeks at the multiplex.
“‘Frozen’ probably had the best release date of the year because they positioned themselves to completely dominate the family film marketplace over the holidays,” said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak. “To be No. 2 in its sixth week is a total reflection of that.”
Reigning box-office champion “Hobbit,” ”really contributed to this record box office that we have at the end of the year,” he added. “With ‘Hobbit’ and ‘Frozen,’ we are talking $450 million at the box office between those two films alone. They are absolutely killing it here at the end of the year.”
This year is poised to be a banner one at the box office, and it is projected to surpass 2012’s $10.8 billion by nearly 1 percent, making this the highest annual take ever.
Paramount held two slots in the top five over the weekend, with the comedies “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” starring Will Farrell, and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. Sequel “Anchorman 2” came in at No. 3 with $20.2 million, and Martin Scorsese’s dark comedy, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” took the No. 5 spot, earning $19 million after opening at No. 2 on Christmas Day with $9.15 million.
“Some people are calling the performance of ‘Anchorman’ a bit of a disappointment, but it will be a $100 million gross at the end of the day,” Dergarabedian said. “All of the marketing certainly raised its profile. It will have a good showing.”
“Anchorman” met studio expectations over the Christmas holiday.
“We are thrilled and we feel the movie will play well in theaters for a while,” said Don Harris, president of distribution at Paramount. “The first film brought in $84 million, and this one will be well north of that.”
At nearly three hours long, “Wolf” does not have as many showings in a day as the rest of the pictures currently in theaters, yet it’s holding its own at the multiplex. “The movie is very much out there in terms of content, and that’s a good thing,” added Harris. “It’s different than anything else in the marketplace. I think people are surprised that it’s a lot of fun.”
At No. 4, Sony Pictures corruption saga, “American Hustle,” made $19.6 million. David O. Russell’s entertaining take on the Abscam investigation of the 1970s, starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, has grossed $60 million domestically and gained seven Golden Globe nominations.
Oscar hopeful “Saving Mr. Banks,” Disney’s making of “Mary Poppins” story, starring Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, came in at No. 6, making $14.3 million.
Fox’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” Ben Stiller’s dramatic turn, which he also directed, took seventh place, earning $13 million. “‘Mitty’ is a feel-good film and with the combination of our excellent exit polls and audience friendly rating at PG-13, I think we are going to play well into the New Year,” said Chris Aronson, president of distribution at Twentieth Century Fox. “This has been an incredibly fragmented and healthy marketplace as we’re expected to finish with a record year.”
And despite lackluster reviews, Keanu Reeves’ martial-arts film “47 Ronin” managed to slide into the top 10 at No. 9 with $9.9 million in its opening weekend.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday:
