Alec Baldwin Set to Marry Hilaria Thomas in Cannes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Weddings, Rumors,

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas in CannesAlec Baldwin is planning to elope with fiancée Hilaria Thomas.

The 30 Rock star is currently shooting a documentary in Cannes, France, but friends of the couple believe they are hoping to tie the knot after the film festival closes on Sunday.

"They've been telling people they'll be spending time in Europe, and there's speculation they're going to get married," a source told Page Six.

Alec proposed to Hilaria - who was born on the Spanish island of Mallorca and grew up in Spain and the US - last month, after almost a year of dating.

Alec - who has a 16-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger - recently revealed he was considering having children with Hilaria: "Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great, that would be heaven, that would be fantastic. As my friend said to me, 'When you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you're older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp."


Has Kelly Preston Left John Travolta?

Kelly Preston and John TravoltaKelly Preston has reportedly walked out on John Travolta.

The 49-year-old actress is said to have told friends she has "had enough" following a string of allegations against the star of sexual misconduct from a number of male masseurs, and the publication of pictures the star dressed as a woman at a private event in 1997.

"Kelly told me their marriage is over and made it clear that she's no longer living in the family home. She's put up with John's double life for decades while his behavior remained in the shadows. But all this coming out in public has humiliated her. Kelly is absolutely destroyed," a source told The National Enquirer.

The photographs, which were obtained by The National Enquirer, show the 58-year-old actor at a party in Los Angeles wearing a white dress with a bra visible underneath, a brown belt, fur stole, earrings and a necklace, and wears eyeliner, pink lipstick and a blonde wig.

Sharon StoneSharon Stone's former nanny is suing the actress amid claims the Oscar winner insulted her Filipino heritage.

Erlinda Elemen was fired by the star in February 2011, after Sharon reportedly discovered she had wrongly been paid overtime, and Ms. Elemen alleges Sharon made a number of disparaging comments about Filipinos, including calling them stupid people.

According to the lawsuit, Basic Instinct star Sharon "criticized Plaintiff for frequently attending church and, on one occasion, forbade Plaintiff from reading the Bible in Plaintiff's room in Defendant's residence," and ordered her not to speak to her three kids Roan, Laird and Quinn because she did not want them "to talk" like her."

Ms. Elemen's attorney, Solomon Gresen said he hopes the suit will draw attention to the broader issue of overtime pay for domestic employees.

Facebook Camera vs Instagram

Earlier today, Facebook launched its new photo-sharing app, Facebook Camera. Since then, we've seen tons of comments on Facebook and Twitter from people who are making fun of the company for releasing a new app that competes with Instagram, the photo sharing app and company that Facebook just acquired for $1 billion. Really? I thought it was time that we took a closer look at why Facebook Camera makes perfect sense, and how it really doesn't compete against Instagram at all.

They really have kept my heart from falling because they've always been there and supported me and cheered me on."

Believe is set to be released on June 18.

Usher

Usher broke down in tears at allegations he was a bad father in an Atlanta court yesterday. The 33-year-old singer was accused of excessive partying by his ex-wife Tameka Foster's attorney, who showed pictures of him out at clubs while in Europe recently.

The trial will continue today.
