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."

Old People News: Sandra Bullock Celebrates 50th birthday with Chelsea Handler and Total Non-famouses

Jul 28 2014 9:24am CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

I am not a huge fan of birthdays. I far prefer to be observing and blackmailing the center of attention than actually being the center of attention, and the idea of aging brings to mind morbid images of Lisa Rinna’s lips and Gwyneth Paltrow making her children’s friends eat kale chips. That said, one should celebrate one’s birthday with people of one’s own popularity and fame level, not a bunch of no-names. Yes, Sandra Bullock, I’m talking to you. Sandra Bullo ...

Scarlett Johansson will marry Romain Dauriac next month in Paris or the Hamptons

Scarlett Johansson has been keeping quiet lately. Like, for the past two months or so, she’s been able to step back in a big way. It’s nice. It’s allowed us to examine other sketchy/fishy couplings, like George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin. But that doesn’t mean that ScarJo’s engagement to Romain Dauriac is any less shady, just that she’s not trying to convince us that this is the grandest love affair in the world or ...

Don’t Sleep On Stacy Keibler’s Maternity Style–She’s Killing It On The Low

Jul 17 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Up until a few weeks ago my only points of reference when it came to Stacy Keibler were WWE and George Clooney. But I randomly came across a picture of her wearing this amazing maxi dress and in the process of searching for it I found more pics of her. Oddly--and quite surprisingly--I found myself wanting everything she was wearing. Sure, she is like six months pregnant, but she is killing the maternity clothes game. Heck, I'm not even pregna ...
