Salma Hayek has been in the news for the following in recent months:

  • Uttering hilarious 30 Rock quotes
  • Carrying adorable new baby Valentina
  • Marrying baby daddy Francois-Henri Pinault

The latter, which took place in February, was apparently so much fun that the lovebirds will be saying "I Do" for the second time this weekend in Italy.

"They are being very hush hush about it," a source tells Us Weekly of the couple, who are proud parents to daughter Valentina, 19 months.

Another source says Salma Hayek, 42, and Francois-Henri Pinault, 46, the loaded chief executive of PPR - which owns Louis Vuitton and other luxury brands - are flying their close friends to Venice to celebrate for the entire weekend.

They first got engaged in March 2007, but split on July 18, 2008 - before tying the knot at City Hall in Paris' Sixth Arrondissement earlier this year.

Congratulations again to the happy, extremely rich couple! Click to enlarge more pictures of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault ...

Newlywed Gisele Bundchen loves fashion almost as much as Tom Brady.

The Brazilian stunner, who has gotten married twice this year (with shots fired at the second ceremony) glittered in gold as she presented the high-end “Ipanema Gisele Bundchen” footwear collection on Wednesday in Madrid, Spain.

Here's the world's wealthiest model showing off her latest product ...

The 28-year-old recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s ready to move into the role of wife and mother to Tom's young son with Bridget Moynahan. But don't expect her to abandon all fashionable pursuits by any means. Girl is a mogul.

Esther Nazarov has been good for Fred Durst.

Before her, the Limp Bizkit frontman was best known for rocking out pretty hard, possibly banging Britney Spears and definitely railing model Niki Coyne.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

This took place on tape, which became public knowledge after three minutes' worth of sex video clips were "hacked" off his computer's hard drive.

But that was years ago.

Today, Durst is only out to Twitter one thing - his engagement!

"Great news - I'm getting married to Esther [Nazarov] in July!!!!" the singer, 38, announced last week on Twitter. "It's on!! Break out the bubbley!!"

Durst, who gave his fiancée a Neil Lane ring and posted a photo of the sparkler on TwitPic (obviously), added that he's "the happiest man alive!!"

"I've never known true love until now," he said, again on Twitter.

"So grateful."

Fred, who recently reunited with his Limp Bizkit band mates and plans to tour with them this summer, has two children: teenage daughter Adriana, from his first marriage, and son Dallas, 7, with a former girlfriend.

Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Esther Nazarov!

She was hit hard by Chris Brown, but Rihanna isn't hitting the road anytime soon, despite a report circulated by E! Online that she was planning on kicking off a huge North American Tour this September with Ciara or Keyshia Cole.

"She wants strong women to join her," a source told E! of the singer, who was assaulted in February by Brown. "This is a 'women empowerment' type of tour."

  • Rihanna Nipple Slip
  • Katy Perry Topless

Well, a source close to the singer says it's "not true" that she's going on tour this fall. Instead, she's keeping a low profile until Chris Brown's case is settled.

As he awaits his court date next week - and may or may not be passing time boinking Natalie Mejia - Rihanna kicked it on the high seas ... with Katy Perry!

The two are vacationing together in the R&B star's native Barbados ...

Who would you rather ...

Audrina Patridge was no angel on The Hills the other night, making eyes at Brody Jenner while his girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, was far from pleased.

But the reality star has certainly earned a set of wings (which look great with that sexy white bikini, if you ask us) in her new campaign for PETA!

Audrina at Comic-Con

On a billboard set to be unveiled today on L.A.'s Beverly Boulevard, Audrina Patridge poses in a provocative angel outfit with her rescued dog, Speedy Gonzalez, next to the line, "Be an Angel for Animals-Always Adopt, Never Buy."

Audrina Patridge looks so good in this ad, we'll forgo the usual PETA wise cracks. We much prefer Speedy Gonzalez to that other dog she's often seen with, Justin-Bobby.

In a statement released by PETA, Audzo says, in support of the animal rights group, "Each year, 6-8 million unwanted dogs and cats are turned in to shelters, and half are killed because there aren't enough good homes."

"The solution to this problem is as easy as ABC - animal birth control. Always spay and neuter, and never buy from a pet store or a breeder."

Good for her for supporting a good cause. Check out spoilers and pics of Audrina and the rest of the cast of the hit show at yesterday's Paley Fest!

Actress Michelle Rodriguez of Lost and Fast and Furious fame has always been a loose cannon. So it's of little surprise that she was apparently no model bridesmaid at the four-day wedding of her best friend and manager, Giancarlo Chersich.

At the welcome dinner at the Casa de Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic, Rodriguez pushed fully clothed guests into the pool. A classic move.

Then, then next night, a loud Michelle broke up the bachelorette party by yelling that the stripper was "fat and had a small a$$."

Michelle was supposedly rather ticked off when the dancer asked for a volunteer at the beginning of his routine and then made the willing babe kneel down.

"That's bull$h!t," the sexy star yelled. "He should be kneeling for her; this is a f*%king bachelorette party!"

As the stripper began gyrating and pushing his crotch into the bride-to-be's face, Rodriguez yelled, "This is the kind of thing that brings out the bisexual in me."

Hard to argue with that.

Then, on the wedding day itself, Rodriguez looked like an angelic bridesmaid in a lilac silk and empire-waist gown ... at least until she changed into skinny jeans and a tank top and grinded at the reception with men and women alike.

Sounds like just the kind of shindig Lindsay Lohan would've loved.

Newly-crowned Miss USA Kristen Dalton and runner-up Carrie Prejean hold different views on gay marriage - but the former says the embattled Miss California has every right to her opinion and harbors no ill will towards her.

On the Today show, Al Roker asked Dalton how she would have responded to the gay marriage question posed to Prejean that sparked so much debate in the finals.

Trump vs. Prejean

"The beautiful thing about America is that we have the right to choose what partner we want to love, commit and spend the rest of our lives with," Kristen said.

"I think that all couples should be able to be recognized legally, to enter into a union. Whether or not that should be defined as marriage, I'll leave that to politicians."

Despite opinions that politics and religion should be left out of the competition, Dalton said the gay marriage question, posed by judge Perez Hilton, was "fair."

"It's a social issue that surrounds us every day that citizens should be aware of," she said. "As a state representative, I think we should be prepared to answer it."

While they share different viewpoints, Kristen Dalton supports her rival.

"I'm proud of her for speaking from her heart, and she's passionate and what she believes in, and she's proud of herself," she said of Carrie Prejean. "I respect her."

"The beauty of America is that we all have a right to our own opinion."

This summer, the two have a chance to reunite. If Kristen Dalton wins the Miss Universe competition, Carrie Prejean could inherit her Miss USA title.

"I would love for Carrie to become Miss USA," Dalton said. "We were actually friends during the competition. I love her, and I think she's great."

The more important issue, obviously: Who would you rather ...

When Lauren Conrad hit the Paley Fest red carpet with cast mates Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt (sadly, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were no-shows), a wide range of Hills gossip followed.

Spencer's sister told the crowd that the couple, whose weekend wedding is being filmed as the show's season finale, were in the "studio, making hit music."

Stephanie also dished on being a Speidi bridesmaid:

"I've never been to a wedding before. I know that [Holly Montag] is in it. I'm hoping that she is Maid of Honor because I will screw everything up."

Of the gruesome twosome's pre-wedding festivities, Stephanie Pratt said, "I don't think Spencer is allowed to have a bachelor party. Holly and I are throwing around the idea of a bridal shower before. I just hope no one objects [at the wedding]."

The conversation soon turned to - you guessed it! - the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors that infamously dominated a full season of the reality show.

When asked if she still believes that it was Spencer Pratt who spread the rumor that she and Jason Wahler made a sex tape, Lauren said, "We have it on tape that he [Spencer] takes responsibility for it. Sorry. Spoiler alert!"

Wow, now that's a Hills spoiler we never saw coming! Follow the jump for loads more spoilers and pictures of the cast at Paley fest ...

It's not exactly Lindsay Lohan nude as Marilyn Monroe, but this photo shoot does conjure up images of some of the beautiful celebrities of yesteryear.

In the new issue of Redbook, Faith Hill was transformed into some of that magazine's past, iconic blonde cover girls in a serious of beautiful photos.

Here's how she felt about portraying Twiggy: "She had such an innocence ... Her version was beautiful and flawless, but for me, as a woman who's come into her own a little more comfortably, it's just a different kind of beauty."

On portraying Brigitte Bardot: "I felt least like Brigitte of all three women we did. Brigitte possesses this sensual essence that is so powerful ... if I could possess that sensuality, I would want to possess it like she does."

On portraying Grace Kelly: "My mother-in-law has always told me I remind her of Grace Kelly. I think it's probably that I have this seemingly high-profile life, like Grace did, and that we were both the mother of three children."

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag may be shameless, self-promoting and annoying, but the Bible-reading Hills pair believes all human beings are equal and should receive the same rights they will enjoy when they get married Saturday.

In the wake of the ongoing controversy surrounding Carrie Prejean, the Miss USA runner-up who says Perez Hilton's question about - and her opposition to - gay marriage cost her the crown, Twitter-obsessed Spencer wrote to Perez:

"This Miss USA question was genius! GOD is ALL LOVE so any way that people try to use GOD to make other people feel bad is PURE EVIL!!!"

We can't believe we're saying it, but Mr. Pratt actually deserves some props for this profoundly simple point. As does his plastic bride-to-be.

On her Twitter page, Heidi Montag offered support for the celebrity gossip blogger and gays and lesbians across the world, Tweeting passionately:

"God says in the bible that we should love our neighbor and he created us all as equals. I know in my heart that gays and lesbians should have the same government rights that Spencer and I will when we get married. So, yes, this blonde Christian believes in gay marriage and I hope to one day go to YOUR wedding, Perez!!!"

Take that, Carrie Prejean.

And it's not just Speidi - you can count Miley Cyrus as a member of Team Perez, as well. Here's what the 16-year-old star had to Twitter:

"Jesus loves you AND your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! thats like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz hes gay and that is WRONG and very sad! like i said everyone deserves to be happy ... i am a christian and i love you - gay or not. BECAUSE you are no different that anyone else! we are all gods children!"

Praise? Thoughts? Criticisms? Reponses? Have at it!
