Patrick Swayze's widow Lisa Niemi has reportedly found love again, four years after losing the actor to cancer. The 57 year old was introduced to jeweller Albert DePrisco, 58, by mutual friends in early 2012, and their romance has become so serious, Niemi recently purchased a $400,000 (£266,670) oceanfront apartment in Boca Raton, Florida to be close to her new beau, according to the National Enquirer.
A source tells the publication, "With Albert, Lisa is happier than she's been in a long time."
Niemi was married to the Dirty Dancing star for 34 years until his death in 2009.
Former Westlife star Kian Egan has won a long-running battle with local officials in Ireland to have a wall erected around his home. The Irish singer was ordered to remove a fence from around his property in Strandhill, County Sligo by council authorities after failing to obtain planning permission for the structure.
He argued that fans often drive past the mansion in a bid to get a glimpse of him and his actress wife Jodi Albert, and on Tuesday (19Nov13), council leaders agreed to reverse the decision.
Construction workers have now started building a brick wall around the house.
Egan is currently in the Australian jungle competing on U.K. reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
When times are tough, we've all fantasized about traveling back to a simpler era in history, just like Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future. After all, he sure made that DeLorean look cool.
Well thanks to a new video posted by BuzzFeed, it seems as if time travel may actually be real. For instance, Jack Black may have actually existed in a former life as none other than Paul Revere. And who knew Shia LaBeouf was really just a modern version of Albert Einstein? Sound impossible? Check out the video below.
The Broadway adaptation of Tim Burton's fantasy film Big Fish is closing just three months after making its debut. The 2003 movie, which was based on Daniel Wallace's 1998 novel, was transformed for the stage earlier this year (13), but bosses have decided to bring the run to an end on 29 December (13).
Directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman and starring Broadway veteran Norbert Leo Butz, Big Fish cost nearly $14 million (£8.7 million) to produce, but has suffered a recent fall in box office sales after a promising start.
The show began previews on 5 September (13), and will have played 98 shows by the time it closes its doors. Albert Finney and Ewan McGregor starred in Burton's 2003 big screen imagining of the tale.
Singers James Blunt and Katie Melua performed for Britain's Queen Elizabeth II onstage at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Saturday (09Nov13) as part of the Festival of Remembrance, which commemorates soldiers who have died in battle.
Hollywood star George Clooney was the toast of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) Britannia Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday (09Nov13) as he picked up one of the evening's top prizes. Julia Roberts was on hand to present her former Ocean's Twelve co-star with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film, and she took the opportunity to crack a few jokes at the expense of her longtime pal.
She told the crowd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, "I'm normally in my second REM (sleep) cycle by now so let's get this done (honouring) George Clooney, or as my daughter calls him, George Looney... There are two obvious reasons why I was chosen to do this: one, Brad Pitt was out of town. Two, Matt Damon, he's in town but he was unavailable."
Roberts added, "I consider George a friend. We have worked together in many capacities. We have acted together a few times. He's been my producer and my director, all of which he is immeasurably gifted at. He's handsome, he's talented, he is an exemplary humanitarian and a gifted prankster."
Accepting his trophy, Clooney gushed about the Pretty Woman star: "It has been such a pleasure to watch the woman you have become. It's very hard for me to be just straight nice because she'll get me later. But (she is) just an amazing mother, an amazing wife and a great, great friend. It's really an honour to have her here."
Other big winners at the ceremony included filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow, who received the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing, and Sir Ben Kingsley, who took home the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment. Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy, and actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Idris Elba were presented with the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year and Britannia Humanitarian Award, respectively.
The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is determined to make his London BluesFest show authentic by mastering a special harmonica harness used by his musical hero. Wood and former fellow Stones rocker Mick Taylor are set to perform together at London's Royal Albert Hall on Friday (01Nov13) to pay tribute to blues musician Jimmy Reed.
The veteran guitarist wants to ensure their performance is as authentic as possible, so he has been learning to use the same sort of harmonica harness as Reed.
Wood tells the London Evening Standard, "He is overlooked, he's not a household name. Doing this concert I'm hoping it will be a bit educational - for us and the audience. I'm going to try and get the songs as authentic as possible."
Taylor adds, "It's great to hear Ronnie play the harmonica. We're having a lot of fun."
Country star Jason Aldean has expressed his shock and sadness after a man was hit and killed following a collision with his tour bus in Indiana on Sunday night (27Oct13). The singer was onboard the vehicle when pedestrian Albert Kennedy "walked out into the middle of the roadway", directly into the path of Aldean's bus, according to police at Knox County Sheriff's Department.
The 36 year old suffered "trauma to the head and chest" and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Aldean has since taken to his WhoSay.com blog to share the tragic news with fans and send his condolences to Kennedy's relatives, writing, "With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana.
"In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen. I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."
Authorities have launched an investigation into the accident, which occurred just one day after Aldean was forced to axe the final date (26Oct13) on his current tour in Dallas, Texas due to torrential rain. Event organisers scrapped the open-air show amid safety fears.
Actor Jamie Foxx has revealed he studied Sean 'Diddy' Combs to perfect his moneybags character in movie musical Annie. The Django Unchained star plays a modern-day version of the stageshow's Daddy Warbucks, named Benjamin Stacks, in the upcoming Annie movie, and admits he didn't have to look far to find some inspiration.
He says, "I'm a cellular phone mogul. I'm running through the streets of New York, I'm trying to be mayor. And, to be honest with you, I'm letting the cat out the bag just a little bit, I'm sort of mirroring Puffy (Combs) a little bit."
Annie, which stars Quvenzhane Wallis and Cameron Diaz, is set to hit theatres in 2014.
Warbucks was previously played on the big screen by Albert Finney.
Veteran rockers The Who are to retire from the stage after one last world tour to mark their 50th anniversary. Surviving members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, who formed the band in 1964, are planning a spectacular series of gigs to mark their half century next year (14) but insist it will be their last time out on the road.
The band wrapped up a tour of its classic album Quadrophenia at London's Royal Albert Hall in July (13) but both rockers have had health issues in recent years - Daltrey needs regular throat check-ups after having a pre-cancerous growth removed in 2010 and Townshend uses special earpieces to combat recurring tinnitus.
Earlier this year (13), singer Daltrey hinted the Substitute hitmakers might mark their 50th anniversary after witnessing fans' reactions to The Rolling Stones' reunion gigs last year (12).
Townshend has now backed the idea of an anniversary tour, telling the London Evening Standard, "For the 50th anniversary we'll tour the world. It'll be the last big one for us. There are still places we've not played. It would be good to go to eastern Europe and places that haven't heard us play all the old hits."
