Just two weeks ago, we learned Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud were engaged. The engagement didn't last long ... they got hitched last night!

The country superstar and her companion of several years got married in Puerto Rico on New Year's Day, her rep confirmed to People this morning.

Shania Twain, who confirmed the engagement last month, became involved with Frederic Thiebaud after their original spouses had an affair.

Congratulations to the Thiebauds!

"Adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to," Shania wrote to her fans online. These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people."

"Talking about love, I'm excited to share some personal news - I'm in love! Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud has been a precious gift to me; a compassionate, understanding friend. Over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this friendship."

It sure has. We wish them both the best. In other New Year's wedding news, Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale also made it official Saturday!

Now that's starting 2011 off right. Valerie Bertinelli married her boyfriend of seven years, financial planner Tom Vitale, in Malibu last night.

"We're so happy!" the Hot in Cleveland star says.

Bertinelli, 50, and Vitale, 49, exchanged vows in front of about 100 guests at their home, including Valerie's son Wolfie, 19, from her two-decade marriage to rocker Eddie Van Halen, who also attended. Sounds wonderful.

Bertinelli and Vitale met in 2004 and got engaged last March. Congratulations!

Sit back, watch and enjoy!

As we reported earlier, Dr. Conrad Murray is likely to argue at trial on involuntary manslaughter charges that Michael Jackson killed himself.

Now, in addition to MJ accidentally delivering his own coup de grace in the form of a lethal Propofol dose, comes a second component to the theory.

Jackson's weakened state during various tours throughout life - including the 2009 London concerts that never took place - will be a focal point.

This Was It

THIS WAS IT: Jackson never made it on tour in 2009.

There's "compelling evidence" MJ was in poor health whenever he went on tour, sources say, dating back to his Bad and Dangerous albums decades ago.

Jackson was frequently "dehydrated, medicated, and sleep-deprived" and like with Dr. Conrad Murray, had a doctor who accompanied him on the road.

The gist is that grueling concert schedules took a huge toll, leaving him prone to and demanding drugs to sleep, long before Murray was in the picture.

Sometimes, you pick up the phone and call your daughter. Sometimes, you need to hire one of the former members of All 4 One to pen a song for her.

Michael Lohan has commissioned Delious Kennedy, one of the members of the R&B ensemble to write and perform a track dedicated to Lindsay Lohan.

The song will be a companion piece of sorts to Lindsay's 2005 track "Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)." Remember when she sang?

Michael's looking to start 2011 on a good note.

"It's about a talented, beautiful young lady who grows in our hearts. She is badgered by paparazzi, cut down by the media ... She will wilt, but when she falls, I will always be there to pick her up and put her pedals back on," says MiLo.

Poignant, are we wrong?

Elin Nordegren, perhaps the world's richest, most eligible single-mom divorcee, turns 31 years old on this first day of the new year. Happy birthday!

Tiger Woods may be the greatest golfer ever, but Elin delivered the most lucrative shot in history with one swing of the 9-iron. Now she's moved on.

Fight For the Kids

If Tiger had any brains, he wouldn't have pawed Devon James, Jaimee Grubbs and their ilk. Was it worth it, man? Nine figures later, probably not.

If you have any brains, you'll click to enlarge this gallery of Elin Nordegren pictures we put together ... and give her a ring if you're a single guy:
