It's been a whirlwind courtship for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, but they still plan to make Sunday's wedding a "very detailed and classy affair." With less than a week to plan, the pair announced Tuesday that they will wed at the Los Angeles home of legendary music manager Irving Azaoof, a Kardashian family friend. All of Odom's co-workers -- those would be the L.A. Lakers-- will be invited, along with such stars as Ryan Seacrest, who is an executive producer on both of Khloe's E! television reality series, "Keeping up with the Kardashians" and "Kourtney& Khloe Take Miami." Kardashian and Odom met last month at a Los Angeles party.
Need a quick gift for the happy couple? They're registered at Williams-Sonoma, but only under her name. The wedding of "Khloe Kardashian and XX" is set for Jan. 1, 2010, according to the registry. They are asking for everything from a Wüsthof Classic 23-Piece Knife Block Set for a cool $1,199.95 (reduced from $1,510) to a black Williams-Sonoma potholder for just $9.
Not hearing wedding bells are once ultra-Catholic Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, the Russian pianist who will bear his eighth child in December. During a British TV interview, Grigorieva, 39, said, "We have no plans to marry whatsoever. I haven't thought about it – we haven't spoken about it." The child is her second -- she already has a 12-year-old son, Alexander, with actor Timothy Dalton-- so she says she's much calmer about her pregnancy. "I've been a mother for 12 years – and of course, there is no first time mother's trepidation as such," Grigorieva said. "So naturally it's more relaxed, and I'm very dynamic so the pregnancy falls into my work schedule."
She already has a high-flying life, but supermodel Gisele Bundchen is soaring to new heights by learning to fly a helicopter, reports People.com. The Brazilian supermodel, who is expecting her first baby in December with husband, Patriots quarterback Ton Brady, got interested in flying helicopters as part of her research into alternative fuels as part of her work as the new goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environmental Program. the president of the company where Bundchen is taking her lessons calls her "gung ho about learning to fly" and "one of the best students we've ever had."
If there is one cloud in the Brady-Bundchen horizon, it might be the lawsuit filed by two photographers who say the star couple's security team assaulted and harassed them, and finally shot out the rear window of their SUV as they tried to escape after taking photos around the couple's wedding celebration in Costa Rica. The pair say they had proper authorizations but were grabbed anyway, and they want $1 million in compensation for the harrowing encounter.
Kevin Federline, who has packed on the pounds since he went from being ex-wife Britney Spears' backup dancer to being a stay-at-home dad, has signed up to participate in the next season of "Celebrity Fit Club." Also set to slim down on camera are Bobby Brown, Casey Stroh, and interestingly, Federline's other baby mama, Shar Jackson. And there's news from another "Celebrity Fit Club" graduate -- Chaz Bono, born the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono, is writing a bookabout his transition from female to male, TMZ.com says. The book, tentatively titled "Coming Clean," is set to be published by Dutton in 2011 and netted Chaz "a handsome, six-figure deal," a publishing source said.
