In August, Reid had a quickie wedding to Bulgarian financier Zack Kehayov in the Greek Isles. After tweeting about her engagement, hours later Reid tweeted a picture of her all-white wedding on the island of Santorini, saying, “Just got married in Greece I love being a wife!”
Since August, Reid, 35, frequently tweeted messages of love and posted pictures of her relationship, always referring to Kehayov as her “husband”.
But when paparazzi caught up with the actress after her flight yesterday and asked if she and her husband could win “The Newlywed Game,” an exhausted-looking Reid said they “were never really married” because they never legalized their union in the United States.
The so-called wedding has fueled confusion ever since Reid’s initial announcement. Right before her supposed wedding to Kehayov, Reid’s reps stated that she married Danish businessman Michael Lillelund, who denied the wedding, insisting he hadn’t spoken to Reid in months. Reid had two other previous engagements, one with Internet entrepreneur Michael Axtmann and TV personality Carson Daly.
“For the past three years [I've] been battling life,” the star (real name: Shad Gregory Moss) writes. “I felt as if I had no purpose to live (Thinking selfishly) until God gave me the illest gift of my life. No [Lamborghini], no [American Express Black Card] nothing amounts to my lil girl.”
“I was nervous on how yall would look at me,” he explains of keeping his baby news secret. “My lil girl is getting BIG fast. I love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, it’s like it made me into a man overnight.”
Bow Wow (who first became a music star as “Lil Bow Wow” at age 13) declines to name the little girl’s mom or specify her exact age.
“This is my first,” he says. Revealing his name for her, he adds: “Shai Shai daddy love u too!”
“I missed out on so much that I now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life,” he muses. “Yes! I change diapers. Ain’t as bad as I thought.”
“After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated,” their manager, Phil Viardo, told the site.
Viardo added: “The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union… They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future.”
Knight, 53, known for his role as Peter Brady in the 1970s’s hit “The Brady Bunch,” met Curry, 28, while they were housemates on the VH1 series “The Surreal Life.” Their on-screen romance let to their own spin-off series, “My Fair Brady,” which documented their engagement, wedding and first year of marriage.
Model-actress Estella Warren is now behind bars after a messy scuffle with LAPD, TMZ reports.
Cops told the website that the “Planet of the Apes” actress, 32, slammed her Toyota Prius into three parked cars just before midnight on Monday. The beauty was then arrested for DUI, but reportedly resisted, even kicking one officer.
The alleged mayhem didn’t end there. While being booked at the police station, Warren wiggled out of her handcuffs and attempted to escape, only to be recaptured.
According to TMZ, Warren will be booked for felony escape, assault, hit and run and DUI.
Lauren Conrad — whose debut teen novel, L.A. Candy, hit No. 1 on a New York Times bestseller list — just scored another three-book deal with HarperCollins, she tells UsMagazine.com exclusively.
Called “The Fame Game,” the “Hills” alum’s upcoming trilogy is set in the reality TV universe, and features Madison Parker, an ambitious, ruthless character from the “L.A. Candy” series who’s ready to become a star in her own right. In her way? Backstabbing family friends, dogged paparazzi and one media scandal after the next!
“We took the mean girl of the ["L.A. Candy books"], spinning her off” Conrad, 25, tells Us of The Fame Game’s tough protagonist Madison.
“This series is about a girl who loves everything that fame is, and that’s all she’s ever really wanted,” Conrad explains. “[Madison] has fun with the press, she enjoys the attention, she welcomes scandal!”
If Madison sounds familiar (Heidi Montag, perhaps?), Conrad assures Us her characters aren’t based on anyone real. “No. We have fun with it! We kind of take [Hollywood] stereotypes.
With a clothing empire to run as well (her third line debuts this fall), when does Conrad write?
“Between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.,” Conrad tells Us. “My phone doesn’t ring, and there’s nothing on TV!”
Is Conrad’s longtime beau, actor Kyle Howard, an “L.A. Candy” devotee? “He read my first book, which was very sweet,” Conrad says, laughing. “I told him he didn’t have to read the rest. “I don’t think he’s the target market!”
Last spring, all eyes were on the set of Bad Teacher — which reunited former flames Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz. (Timberlake, 30, was still involved with Jessica Biel at the time; they split last month.)
According to Diaz, it was anything but awkward or tense working with her ex on the dark comedy.
“No, it’s great. Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together, and there really was no one else who was more perfect for this part,” Diaz, 38, told UsMagazine.com at the Coliseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas Wednesday, where she was on hand to accept the CinemaCon Female Star of the Year Award.
She gushed that her ex (they parted ways in late 2006 after over 3 years together) is “a genius comedian. . . he’s clearly talented. We went for the best person for the job, and it just so happened that it was him. And he delivers.”
The “SexyBack” singer brings something to cinema that nobody else does, she enthused. “He’s frickin’ weird in movies. He’s so bizarre and hilarious. I say that with great respect to his character and what he’s done!”
Diaz, who is now hot and heavy with Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, continued to insist “there was nothing to make” of working with her ex. “[Just] two people who were working together, who just so happened to have gone out with one another at another time in our lives,” said the star.
“It really wasn’t a big deal, we had a great time and did the job, and we do what all actors do afterward: We all go our separate ways. We’ll all come back together for the premiere.”
Another hot topic: The baseball player’s girlfriend’s amazing body. How does she do it? “Leg weights and weights and lifts, leg lifts — anything you can do on the floor. It’s my horizontal workout,” she explained.
As for food? “I need to eat every couple hours, so I’m just eating constantly, just to keep healthy,” she explained. “I try to eat really clean. I eat a lot of protein, whether it’s fish, chicken, or beef, or egg whites, and then brown rice or quinoa, and oatmeal and a whole grain like that, and lots of greens.”

First item on Ashlee Simpson’s post-split checklist: Find a new pad.
A source tells UsMagazine.com the singer-actress, 26, has been crashing at her parents’ place since she filed for divorce from Pete Wentz on Feb. 9 (the Fall Out Boy rocker, 31, has been staying at their $4.5 million Beverly Hills home) and on Wednesday she seemed determined to change that.
Simpson spent the morning house hunting with a real estate broker in the Beverly Hills area, a second insider says.
“They drove by a few houses in the 3-to-4 million-dollar range,” the source tells Us. “Ashlee didn’t get out of the car and was quiet and subdued. At one point, she was going to get out of the car, but when she saw photographers, she decided to stay in the car and then went home.”
One criteria for Simpson’s new spread is that it’s suitable for her 2-year-old son, Bronx.
“The homes were two-story traditional-style homes in a family neighborhood,” says the source. “One of the houses was just up from the street from Coldwater Park, where she and Pete like to take Bronx to play.”
Another plus, adds the insider, “The homes were also very close to [sister] Jessica’s house, which would be nice for her.”
