Hey Boy Meets World fans, Topanga and Shawn got married over the weekend! ... Except not in the way you were hoping.
In a cute coincidence, Rider Strong and Danielle Fishel both happened to get married to different people over the same weekend. Strong married long-time girlfriend Alexandra Barreto in a camp-themed ceremony in Oregon. The weekend wedding included festivities like a talent show and a rope course while guest accommodations included bunk beds. Fishel, on the other hand, married Tim Belusko in a more scaled-back event in Los Angeles that the actress' rep told People was "short and sweet." Unfortunately, this isn't some alternate version of the '90s sitcom where Cory falls in a ditch to never be seen again, and years of repressed feelings lead to love between Shawn and Topanga. Some Boy Meets World fan fiction sites got really excited for a minute there.
The big question is: whose wedding did Ben Savage attend?
Fishel and Savage will reprise their roles in the Boy Meets World Spin-off, Girl Meets World, which will follow the adventures of Cory and Topanga's daughter, Riley Matthews.
Actor Teo Halm has been dropped from the new Boy Meets World spin-off. The Nova star was cast as the older brother of Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel's TV daughter, Riley Matthews, but producers at Disney decided the show, Girl Meets World, would work better without the character.
Halm broke the news on Twitter.com on Saturday (05Oct13), writing, "So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn't work to have an older brother on the show; I won't be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone".
Responding to Halm's message, Fishel wrote, "Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me mom."
Savage and Fishel played teenage sweethearts in the original show, which ran from 1993 to 2000.
Rocker Dave Matthews has taken a walk down Sesame Street to share a song about feelings. The singer recently filmed a guest appearance on the hit children's TV show, teaming up with the puppet Grover to express sadness.
Strumming on a banjo, Matthews sings, "I need a word so I can say what I'm feeling today/ I need a word so I can say how I feel/ I need a word that will say what I'm meaning to say/ And tell you the way that I'm feeling".
The star is the latest celebrity to film a cameo for the beloved programme - Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zac Efron and Eva Longoria have all previously guest-starred on the long-running show.
Kate Winslet took on the role of a villain in upcoming movie Divergent because she wanted to leave a lasting impression on her children. The Titanic star, who is pregnant with her third child, admits she immediately signed on to play Jeanine Matthews in the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best selling novel so that her kids, Mia and Joe, would consider her to be "cool".
The 37 year old tells MTV News, "I didn't have any hesitation at all. It was such a great script. It's a fantastic book. My daughter is going to be 13, and my son is almost 10, and they're getting to that age where this is the type of literature they're going to be reading very soon.
"In fact, my daughter, two days ago, came home from school and went, 'Mum! You're never going to believe it. Rufus came up to me at school and said, is your mum really in Divergent? Is there going to be a premiere? Can you get me a ticket?'... My daughter suddenly had a new found respect for me. I'm just going to go with that. I did it because I wanted my kids to think I was cool."
The Neil Burger film, set in a dystopian version of Chicago, Illinois, is the first in a trilogy of movies and is due for release next year (14). Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Maggie Q are also set to star in the picture.
Rod Stewart, Idris Elba, Anna Friel, Melanie Chisholm and Britain's princes William and Harry were among the stars who manned the phones on a trading floor in London on Wednesday (11Sep13) as part of a 9/11 charity event. A whole host of actors, musicians and royals joined the British leg of Cantor Fitzgerald's and BGC Partners' annual Charity Day, which commemorates the victims of America's 2001 terrorist attacks.
As part of the event, famous faces man the phones and the day's profits are donated to good causes.
Stewart was there with his wife Penny Lancaster while Prince William and his brother Prince Harry also took calls during the star-studded event.
Other celebrities who turned out for the day's trading in London included Sir Ian McKellen, Sean Bean, David Hasselhoff, Cerys Matthews, Danny Dyer and Ashley Roberts, while on the other side of the Atlantic, Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon, Sean 'Diddy' Combs, actor Zachary Quinto, and The Sopranos stars Edie Falco and Bobby Cannavale turned out in New York.
Last year's (13) event raised millions of dollars for good causes worldwide.
The three surviving members of The Clash are set to reunite for a one-off radio event in Britain. Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon have agreed to sit down for a BBC Radio 6 Music show next month (Sep13).
The trio will be interviewed by singer-turned-TV and radio personality Cerys Matthews in front of an audience of fans.
The exclusive chat will be taped on 6 September (13) for broadcast later in the the month.
Matthews announced The Clash get together during a segment on her BBC Radio 6 Music show on Sunday morning (18Aug13).
In a press release, she adds, "Their music gave a generation a voice not just in music but in the choice of how they lived their everyday lives and it still sounds as great, as fresh and loaded with good intent as music can ever be."
Fans' dreams of a full The Clash reunion were dashed in 2002 when frontman Joe Strummer died. Simonon and Jones have teamed up since as members of Damon Albarn's Gorillaz collective.
Musicians Ray Davies, Brian May and Bridget Jones's Diary author Helen Fielding are among the big names set to make appearances at an upcoming literature festival in the U.K. Queen star May will team up Midge Ure to discuss legendary 1985 charity concert Live Aid during this summer's (13) Cheltenham Literature Festival in Cheltenham, England, and The Kinks' Davies will also give a talk.
Fielding will unveil her highly-anticipated third installment in her Bridget Jones's Diary series, and other stars to join discussions include actress Emma Thompson, comedienne Jennifer Saunders, funnyman David Mitchell, The Beatles artist Peter Blake and historical novelist Philippa Gregory.
Former Catatonia frontwoman Cerys Matthews will also be performing.
The event runs from 4-13 October (13).
A former assistant to Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley faces up to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to defrauding the musician of at least $400,000 (£266,670). Getty Andrew Rothenberg served as the star's personal assistant and financial manager for years and was placed in charge of settling Tinsley's personal bills and expenses, looking after his direct investments, and taking care of some financial arrangements for his wife.
However, Tinsley discovered last year (12) that Rothenberg had routinely taken more money than necessary to cover the bills, pocketing the extra cash for his own personal use from 2009.
The musician also learned the culprit had been withdrawing cash from a number of his bank accounts, writing cheques to himself, and taking out credit in the artist's name.
Rothenberg, who had been friends with Tinsley for two decades, pleaded guilty to the fraud charge during a court hearing in Charlottesville, Virginia on Tuesday (23Jul13), and he will be sentenced on 17 September (13).
His lawyer, Tom Bondurant, has blamed his client's actions on "some unfortunate circumstances", adding, "Andrew Rothenberg is a good man... He knows what he did is wrong."
Musician Dave Matthews hitched a lift with a fan to his show in Pennsylvania on Saturday (13Jul13) after a tyre on his bike was punctured. The Dave Matthews Band frontman went out for a pre-show cycle before the gig at Hersheypark Stadium, but he was left stranded by the side of the road after the bike's back wheel deflated.
Concert-goer Emily Kraus and her boyfriend spotted the star and gave him a ride to the show. Matthews was so thankful he invited them to dinner and offered them front row seats.
Re-counting the story to fans at the concert, Matthews revealed, "I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'S**t'... and then a nice lady named Emily rode up in a red car with a bicycle rack on it and gave me a ride on to the gig."
In a post on CBS 21 News' Facebook.com page, Kraus adds, "My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long... this will always be remembered."
The premiere Dexter of Season 8 started off pretty tame (as tame as Dexter can be, anyway). Things pick up six months after Season 7 ended and Dexter seems to be pretty content. He's coaching Harrison’s (who is huge now, by the way) soccer team, he got the bowling team back together (remember Bowl Till You Bleed?), and he's back to the good old days of smashing white mannequin skulls to determine murder weapons. Ah, it's like Season 1 again...
... Until LaGuerta's memorial reminds us that a ton of crazy stuff has gone down since Season 1 and we couldn't get back there if we tried. Debra didn't show up to the memorial, which isn't surprising. She left the force and now works as a PI for a private firm. Batista gave up his restaurant, came out of retirement, and replaced Deb as Lieutenant. He seems to be handling the transition well. Deb, on the other hand, is suffering from a severe case of PTSD after killing LaGuerta.
The first time we see Deb this season she's snorting a line of coke. (This definitely isn't Season 1 Deb.) She's in some shady motel with some sleazy guy. A jewel thief, he's the subject of Deb's case, but she’s really pushing it as far as the whole undercover thing goes. Dexter, who hasn’t heard from Deb in over a month, tries to help her out, but Deb is pretty freaking pissed off at him. When he finds her in a supermarket with said sleazy guy he finds out just how pissed she is. "I shot the wrong person in that trailer," she tells him, before dismissing him as "some loser."
Well, now Dexter's pissed, so pissed, in fact, that he almost strangles some guy who cut him off in traffic. Only when Dexter sees the guy's son in the backseat does he go back to his car. Harry's there, of course, and he essentially says what we're all thinking: What the hell, Dexter? Get it together before you do something really stupid.
Meanwhile, Jamie is sleeping with Quinn. Honestly, Jamie, why? I get that Quinn is a tortured soul and all, but you can do better. And Quinn knows it, because when he hears Batista come in the front door he high-tails it out Jamie's window like some teenager. A real class act, that one.
Back at the station, Miami Metro is assembled for a briefing. Earlier they found a victim with his skull sawed in half and a piece of his melon scooped out like it was a, well, you know. To assist with the case, recently reinstated Deputy Chief Matthews brings in Dr. Evelyn Vogel. She's an expert profiler who focuses on the brains of serial killers (as if Dexter didn’t have enough to worry about). She speaks with Dexter privately in the morgue, with the body of the victim, empty skull side up, in between them. Talk about an ominous sign. She mentions the Bay Harbor Butcher and how Doakes didn't fit the profile. Dexter, after this visibly uncomfortable situation, goes to Matthews. He tells Dexter that Vogel's return to Miami was sudden and unexplained. Again, an ominous sign.
And cue Dexter doing that really stupid thing I mentioned earlier. Jamie drops Harrison off at the precinct so she can have a night off. What does Dexter do? He takes Harrison with him to look for Deb. He leaves Harrison in the car when he gets to Deb's motel and ends up killing the sleazy guy. His death isn't shocking; some hit man called El Sapo was going to kill him if Dexter hadn't. But now Dexter realizes that, just like Deb told him, he's lost. He leaves her, only to realize that Harrison's gone missing. He finds him around the corner, but his scare allows the weight of his actions to sink in.
The end of the episode finds Dexter sitting on LaGuerta's memorial bench, and just when you think the premier was relatively easy to deal with, Vogel shows up. She hands Dexter a photo of a child's drawings of Dexter and dead bodies wrapped in plastic. Dexter confronts her, aggressively. She tells him he can't kill her, and when he asks why, she says simply that it would go against Harry's code.
The end has begun, and it is going to be bloody.
