George Clooney to marry in Venice

Jun 9 2014, 3:26am CDT | by

George Clooney is planning to marry in Venice.

The 'Monuments Men' actor and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin - who got engaged in April - are to tie the knot in Italy in September and decided against holding their wedding at his Lake Como estate because they felt it wasn't private enough.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "George and Amal want to be married in Italy, but they need a location that offers them and their guests privacy."

George - who also didn't want to inconvenience his Lake Como neighbors with the attention his wedding would bring - and Amal were seen dining in Venice a few weeks ago after touring wedding venues and are said to be planning to marry at a palace in the city.

The pair visited Venetian restaurant Da Ivo along with the 53-year-old actor's bodyguard and his girlfriend, and they enjoyed a feast of sautéed shellfish, smoked tuna, mussel soup, crayfish and artichoke risotto and charcoal-grilled seabass accompanied by Prosecco and white wine.

The next morning, they flew out of Venice airport by helicopter.

It was recently claimed the couple had been considering marrying at Highclere Castle - the Hampshire estate where 'Downton Abbey' is filmed - but had a change of heart after Amal learned British ex-glamour model Katie Price had tied the knot there with first husband Peter Andre in 2005.

A source said: "Amal doesn't really know that much about celebrity.

"But she is well aware who Katie Price is and didn't want her big day to be in any way associated with that kind of media circus.

"So they've gone back to the drawing board and are looking at other places."

Meet Tala Alamuddin, George Clooney’s Pippa-esque future sister-in-law

Aug 19 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Meet Amal Alamuddin’s sister, Tala Alamuddin. Tala was photographed several times over the past few days in London, which is where she calls home (apparently) just like her sister. Tala is Amal’s only sister, and they have two half-brothers, Samer and Ziad. I can see the physical resemblance between the two sisters and personally, I think they have the same cheesy kind of street style. LOOK AT HER BAG. Look at her shoes!! Anyway, we’ve heard ...

Thanks For Playing: The 8 Most Epic Game Show Struggles Of All Time

Aug 14 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Scandalist

At one time or another, we’ve all shrieked at the TV when some bozo blows an easy question on a game show. Once indoor voices are resumed, we’re tempted to feel tremendous sympathy for these poor souls. It’s only natural to assume that intense pressure brought on by crowds, cameras, and cash has caused them to become a bundle of nerves and choke, right? Wrong. I personally have been one of the aforementioned bozos, and that definitely wasn’t th ...

Amal Alamuddin will not take part in a UN observation team being sent to Gaza

Aug 12 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve been reticent to cover anything regarding the confluence of Hollywood and the Israel/Palestine conflict. Part of it is that I genuinely don’t like wading too far into the politics of Israel and part of it is that nothing is going to be solved by everybody yelling at each other on a blog. I did read an interesting piece in THR a few weeks ago, about a new generation of Hollywood actors and celebrities who are more willing to question Israel’s poli ...
