Love and happiness (and cut-off camo shorts) are in the air, folks. A week after quietly getting married in New York City, newlyweds Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery went out for sushi in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 15.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: Celebrating their one-week anniversary!

The Grey's Anatomy star has been dating Chris Ivery, a music producer, for a long time. Both are Boston-area natives. They got engaged just as quietly on Pompeo's birthday almost exactly one year ago, then tied the knot last Friday on the eve of the actress' 38th birthday. N.Y. City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was their witness.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

Looks like Ellen Pompeo had a lot more to celebrate last weekend than her 38th birthday. The Grey's Anatomy actress her fiance, music exec Chris Ivery, got married Friday at New York's City Hall, reports the Boston Globe.

None other than New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - a Boston-area native like both Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery - served as the couple's witness.

Ellen Pompeo repeatedly said that she and Ivery wouldn't opt for usual wedding hoopla, preferring a quiet, low-key affair. She made good on that promise.

A city clerk performed the brief ceremony with only Bloomberg and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris accompanying Pompeo and Chris Ivery.

"They are over the moon," Pompeo's spokeswoman told the Boston Globe.

She and Chris Ivery were spotted at the New York Knicks game Sunday night at Madison Square Garden, sitting next to John Mayer and Minka Kelly.

Ellen Pompeo was back in Hollywood yesterday filming Grey's Anatomy, which is expected to shut down production soon due to the writers' strike.

We were just starting to wonder about this couple. Singer, songwriter and Grade A tool John Mayer hasn't been spotted in public with his new gal pal Minka Kelly in awhile. But they returned to the spotlight this weekend for some NBA action.

Seated at a New York Knicks game, Mayer was welcomed by the Madison Square Garden scoreboard, which read "Welcome John Mayer, Recording Artist."

We personally would have had it say "Welcome Minka Kelly, star of Friday Night Lights" but we don't make these kinds of decisions. Probably for good reason.

Here's another picture of John and Minka, along with two other celebrities they sat next to - Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her fiance, Chris Ivery!

In anyone cares, the Miami Heat earned their first win of the season by beating the Isiah Thomas-led Knicks, 75-72, in what was surely a riveting contest. Not.

Ellen Pompeo, the star of Grey's Anatomy, is a big hit everywhere. But she and fiance Chris Ivery love to travel to Italy. Especially for the food.

"I go several times a year. Christopher, my fiancé, has family there and we go spend time with them whenever we get a chance," Pompeo told People.

So what's her favorite thing about Italy? "The food. I love the area of Bologna for food. I think it's really special," she said.

Her top-rated ABC series Grey's Anatomy is also a big hit and Italian fans are taken aback when they see Ellen Pompeo in real life.

"They're quite surprised to see me there," Pompeo, who turns 38 next month, said.

"They just can't believe I'm in Italy. It's out of context for them. They say 'Meredith! It's you, Meredith! Oh my God, could it be Meredith?'"

Pompeo attended National Italian American Foundation's 32nd Annual Gala in Washington, D.C., over the weekend, winning a Special Achievement award.

Less surprising is that she's no slouch when it comes to cooking Italian. Chris Ivery, like Pompeo a Boston-area native, loves her Bolognese sauce, she says of the dish that pays tribute to her favorite region.

Pompeo isn't a rush to get married despite having been engaged for nearly a year. She still hasn't started on the plans, but has thought about the kind of wedding she wants ... "a quiet, simple, private one."

Well, that's nice. Something along the lines of the nuptials between Usher and Tameka Foster, perhaps? Or Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon?

While Isaiah Washington plots his next evil move, his former co-star is speaking out against the coverage celebrity news reports give socialites "who are rich and famous for nothing."

We wonder who Ellen Pompeo could be talking about.

"I just think the media should take this country in a different direction," the Grey's Anatomy star tells the new issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine, on newsstands Aug. 15.

"We're so focused on the wrong things. We're teaching young girls that this is what they should be focusing on: rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing."

Somewhere, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian are offended. Or busy going to jail and making sex tapes.

Also, Pompeo denied reports that she had an eating disorder. She referred to them as "irresponsible" journalism and said:

"I just worry about the girls who look up to me - I don't want them to think I starve myself or don't eat, and that to be like me that's what they have to do."

That's fair. Maybe someone should tell Keira Knightley the same thing.

Finally, Ellen promised that her and fiance Chris Ivery really will get married. Seriously. They just haven't set a wedding date yet.

"I swear we're going to get married at some time. We're just trying to fit it all in. It won't be a big ceremony - we want one thing to ourselves."

Usher and Tameka Foster - along with Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte - can relate.

Hollywood is chock full of different styles. There's the Pete Doherty, drugged-out-of-your mind look, for example.

Then there's the Keeley Hazell, nude look.

To each, his or her own, of course. But we're here now to focus on contrasting new hairdos. For instance, since she's come back to life, Ellen Pompeo has decided to make her hair straighter than a ruler. Do you guys like it? Do you think Chris Ivery is a fan?

It looks like Penelope Cruz is down with the lack of curls, as this Oscar nominee has also straightened out her locks. She looks very pretty.

In other hair news, a couple of blondes have gone the braided route. While it's weird enough to even see Paris Hilton wearing clothes, it's even stranger to see her trying to look innocent with these pigtails. Especially when we've all seen Paris Hilton's pussy and it lacks any semblance of hair. But anyway.

Hilton's occasional friend, Kimberly Stewart, is also going along with the braids. It's no wonder she wants to emulate Paris and other rich, talentless famous people.

Next, expect Kimberly to follow the Kim Kardashian sex tape lead. How else will these loose women stay in the news?

Meredith Grey is alive.

The Grey's Anatomy gossip circles have been worried all week that the title character met a watery death when she fell into Puget Sound and forgot how to swim two weeks ago - but The Hollywood Gossip has proof that Meredith is alive and well.

Here is Ellen Pompeo, Meredith's thin portrayer, appearing quite alive and happy with her fiance.

Chris Ivery doesn't look too concerned about his love's fate, so we think it's safe to relax about it now.

The sun can go back to shining. Kenny Chesney can go back to not being gay. And Patrick Dempsey can go back to being McDreamy.

We're all gonna be okay.

Ellen Pompeo needs food - stat!

Fortunately, her doting finace is on the case.

As seen here, Chris Ivery goes all out to make sure the love of his life doesn't completely disappear.

The recently engaged couple has just finished grocery shopping, hopefully focusing on high protein items that will prevent Pompeo from pulling a Jessica Alba or Nicole Richie on her fans.

They're real thin!

As huge fans of her show, The Hollywood Gossip staff hopes the Grey's Anatomy actress fills out her scrubs a bit more during the season's second half.

How else will she hold on to the love of Patrick Dempsey, er, McDreamy?

Ellen Pompeo, star of the hit series Grey's Anatomy, and her boyfriend, record producer Chris Ivery, are engaged, People magazine confirms.

Ivery proposed to Pompeo on Friday, which was the actress' birthday.

"She was surprised and thrilled," the actress's rep said.

Hopefully this union lasts a tad longer than Jason Alexander and Britney Spears... but chances are Ellen and Chris will top their effort.

Pompeo's longtime boyfriend finally presented her with a ring, finally making it official after nearly three years of dating. The two are both Boston-area natives and actually grew up minutes away from each other, although they didn't meet until pals introduced them in Los Angeles in 2003.

"We were friends for six months; then one night she just looked different to me," Ivery said.

Where and when will the wedding take place? Don't expect Ellen Pompeo to be dishing on that anytime soon. But she's happy.

"We were six degrees our whole lives, so I feel like we were sort of meant to be. We'll get married eventually, secretly."

Reports say he popped the question casually after breakfast in the couple's L.A. home. Sounds a lot less creative than Jack Black's courting methods.

He may not have brought his daughter with him, but that didn't make Patrick Demspey look any less (Mc)dreamy at the launch party for Grey's Anatomy Season Two on DVD this week:

Of course, what would a Grey's Anatomy party be without the title character? Ellen Pompeo also showed up, although she wouldn't dish on whether Meredith and the beloved Dr. Sheperd finally give in to love and tempation when season three stars in two weeks.
