Axl Rose's ex-wife is auctioning off the couple's 1990 marriage certificate and wedding video. Former model Erin Everly is selling off a series of personal items, also including a domestic abuse report and poems and love letters written by Guns N' Roses rocker Rose.
The memorabilia will be going under the hammer at an upcoming Julien's Auctions event in Los Angeles.
Everly is also selling a pair of her ex-husband's leather pants and the shirt he wore in the Welcome To The Jungle video.
The wedding video and marriage certificate alone are expected to fetch upwards of $2,000 (GBP1,300).
Everly, who inspired Rose to write Guns N' Roses hit Sweet Child O' Mine, began dating the rocker in the mid-1980s. Their marriage only lasted a few months.
"I mean, we were just practicing all the time. Practice made perfect." Kanye West jokes he and fiancee Kim Kardashian weren't exactly planning to have a child, but the outcome was ultimately inevitable. Their daughter, North West, was born in June (13).
Although How I Met Your Mother does wax and wane in its quality, we can say that the show — with relative consistency — has been intent on rewarding its fans. Callbacks, running gags, and an elaborate universe serve for the same kind of fun, sportsmanlike watching that we get from Arrested Development ... though with a more prevalent "hit or miss" factor. Up in quality overall from the previous two, this final season seems to interested in giving us closure on all the running jokes we've loved over the years, and they're not exactly pumping the brakes on the distribution of this material. This week's episode, "Mom and Dad," offers a cartload of old HIMYM shtick ripe for the picking:
From This Season...-Lily's Weekend of TacklesWe don't know how many people Lily will end up tackling during Barney and Robin's wedding weekend. So far, the count is two.
-Billy ZabkaZabka, playing himself, as a traumatized former child star vying for the love and admiration of Barney, is an unlikely theme of Season 9. It might be put to rest with his ultimate retribution this week, though. No real complaints on that end, here, although Zabka does get a few gems in his surreal villainy in "Mom and Dad."
-Ted's CalligraphyFor some reason, I love Ted's newfound obsession with calligraphy. Mostly because the format of the season doesn't make it seem like he's just now always talking about calligraphy, but that it just happens to be on his mind quite a bit this weekend (due to his Best Man duties).
From Seasons Past...-"I'm Gonna Be" by The ProclaimersWe were treated to this one at the end of last week's episode, wherein a newly assertive Marshall seized control of his and Daphne's rig, insisting that the trip be scored by his old road-tripping anthem. This week, Marshall (already back in his old nice guy saddle) and Daphne are caught enjoying the late '80s pop sensation.
-Billy Zabka, againZabka has been a fixture of HIMYM lore ever since the joke was established that Barney always identifies with the villains in films and television programs (The Karate Kid being among his favorites).
-The PineapplePerhaps the biggest thrill of the callback lot is a flashback to Ted (in Detective Mosby form), after eight years, finally opting to give up on the pineapple mystery. That ep stands as a fan favorite to all HIMYM devotees.
-John Lithgow Dressed as a HoodlumThe subtlest, and maybe funniest, callback of all: when Barney is imagining his mom and dad getting back together, he can't help but revert to his image of Lithgow as the stud he wished he was upon meeting him a few years back. I just love seeing Lithgow in a leather jacket and shades. I just love seeing Lithgow do anything.

Actress Evan Rachel Wood is determined to keep her baby son's name a secret for as long as possible, so he can live a life away from the spotlight. The Wrestler star gave birth to her first child with husband Jamie Bell in July (13), and the couple has kept the boy's name private and Wood admits she is trying to avoid being photographed with him.
She insists the move is a deliberate attempt to shield the youngster from fame.
Wood tells Thedailybeast.com, "People obviously know I was pregnant - can't hide that - so I have no problem talking about the baby and that we're doing really well. But I haven't released his name.
"I've done my best to keep his picture from being taken, just because kids don't really have a choice in the matter. It's such a shame when kids get harassed just because of who their parents are before they're old enough to decide who they are or who they want to be."
Actress Evan Rachel Wood has urged the public to go easy on troubled pop star Justin Bieber, insisting youngsters who grow up in the spotlight should not be criticised for making mistakes. The Wrestler star began acting when she was a child and found fame with her role in gritty teen drama Thirteen before making a successful transition to more adult roles.
Wood admits she struggled with life as a famous teenager and feels sorry for fellow former child star Bieber, whose bad behaviour has made him a regular in the headlines over the last few months.
She tells Thedailybeast.com, "I can't imagine what it's like to be him. When you're a teenager in an adult career, people expect you to be perfect and expect you to never make mistakes or to be a reckless teenager. And then when you are, they give you such a really hard time for it. You have to remind them that you're still a kid."
Wood goes on to reveal she was deeply hurt by the criticism she received over her relationship with former fiance Marilyn Manson after she began dating the 36-year-old rocker when she was just 19.
She adds, "I was never a Bieber or a (Miley) Cyrus, but I think the judgment was there, sure. People were pretty mean. At the time I hadn't yet been exposed to that kind of cruelty from strangers. If people were wondering why I was acting so-called crazy or like a teenager, it's because I was. People go through phases. People make mistakes. People go through life and don't get it right every time."
Wood and Manson ended their brief engagement in 2010. She is now married to actor Jamie Bell, the father of her infant son.
Singer Kelly Rowland has sparked rumours she is set to marry her boyfriend Tim Witherspoon after showing off a diamond ring on her wedding finger during an online video. The former Destiny's Child star has been dating her manager for several years and has managed to keep the relationship out of the spotlight.
However, Rowland unintentionally sent gossips into a spin when she uploaded a birthday message video for the son of her producer friend Patrick 'J. Que' Smith on Friday (15Nov13), showing off a huge diamond band as she blew him a kiss.
Rowland was previously engaged to American football player Roy Williams in 2004, but they called off their wedding the following year (05).
Once upon a time in a far away land there was a beautiful girl named Rose… and she has now made it to Hollywood for everyone to know! Hailing from New Zealand, Rose McIver is just as sweet as she looks, and incredibly hard working, beginning her career at the age of 3. It’s no surprise we love her so much!
How has it been playing Tinkerbell on Once Upon A Time? Can you share any stories from the set?
I have been having so much fun working on this project. I get to fly around in a harness and play a wonderful icon. I am very aware of how lucky I am to have that chance. On set we have such a great group of people who are professional and still know how to have fun, we have had a couple of freezing cold night shoots where we all sit huddled around heaters in a tent on set and it feels like a school camp.
How is it working with Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan on Masters Of Sex? Are there are a lot of laughs on the set?
Lizzy and Michael are both fantastic in this show. They compliment each other incredibly well and are backed up by so many brilliant cast mates. Allison Janney has been an absolute pleasure to work with, definitely a big inspiration to me.
What can you tell us about Charlotte from Brightest Star?
Charlotte is an artist, with strong creative tendencies who adjusts to a different world and mindset. She has a drive and ambition that can be both constructive and limiting. She was raised by very high achieving parents and definitely feels a need to mirror that behavior. She is strong willed and caring.
You’ve been working since you were a child, at the age of 3. How was it growing up with that kind of success?
It never really felt like work. I would partake in projects on weekends or in school holidays, it felt more like an extra curricular activity to me. Instead of playing soccer I would go to set. I am so grateful that my parents wanted me to stay in school, I love that I still made it to my school balls and graduated with my classmates.
How different do you find Los Angeles from New Zealand?
Los Angeles is an incredible city. There is so much opportunity and work potential and you can find so much within a couple of hours drive of the city itself. I really enjoy it, but New Zealand is still very much my home. My family and my oldest friends all live there. There is such a beautiful focus on family and lifestyle and living on the coast there, the summer's cannot be beat.
You’ve been working so much lately, is there anything else we can expect from you in the near future?
I'm looking in to what is next for me at the moment. I am still working on Once Upon a Time so haven't really decided where I am headed next but there are a few exciting projects that may be in the pipeline so as soon as I know something definite, I will be able to throw my energy into those!
British folk veteran Roy Harper has been ordered to return to court on 2 December (13) after attending a brief hearing on historic child sex offences on Monday (18Nov13). The singer/songwriter was recently charged with nine counts relating to allegations dating back to 1975 and 1977, when he is accused of engaging in an unlawful sexual relationship with a teenage girl. He did not enter a plea during his four-minute hearing at Hereford Magistrates' Court on Monday, but his case has now been formally handed to officials at Worcester Crown Court in England, where he must appear next month (Dec13).
Actress Jennifer Lawrence underwent therapy as a young child to deal with social anxiety issues after struggling to adjust to school life. The Hunger Games star reveals she was an energetic child, but her personality changed completely when she began formal education.
She tells French magazine Madame Figaro, "My nickname was Nitro, as in nitroglycerine. I was hyperactive, curious about everything. When my mother told me about my childhood, she always told me there was like a light in me, a spark that inspired me constantly.
"When I entered school, the light went out. We never knew what it was, a kind of social anxiety... I went to see a shrink, nothing worked."
Lawrence quickly learned she didn't need professional help and instead found different ways to channel her energy and deal with her issues.
She continues, "One day, I begged my parents to take me to a casting. We went to New York, and that's where I started acting. Just on stage, my mother saw the change that was taking place in me. She saw my anxieties disappear. She found her daughter, the one who had this light and joy before school.
"I finally found a way (to) open the door to a universe that I understood, that was good for me and made me happy, because I felt capable, whereas before I felt worthless."
Where we left off: Saul sent Javadi back to Iran, Javadi revealed that the “real” Langley bomber is still in the U.S., and the entire Brody family took a break from the show.
"The Red Wheelbarrow"In this episode, the team sets up a plan to draw the Langley bomber out of hiding, Quinn shoots Carrie to stop her from blowing their cover, and Saul takes a trip down south to say hello to Brody. Yup, things just got real.
After a lack of anything remotely interesting happening during the first half of this season, This episode makes up for the lack of everything interesting happening through the first half of the season by treating us to pure, unadulterated espionage. Before Javadi left for Iran, he told Carrie that the Langley bomber was not Brody and that the actual man who set off the bomb was still in the United States. It turns out that Paul Franklin and Leland Bennett, the two men from the super-secret law firm that has been in contact with Carrie, know who the bomber is. This news sets Saul’s team off into full spy mode as they carry out a plan to draw the suspect out into the open.
While the plan is in motion and the team is parked outside of a motel waiting for Franklin to make contact with the bomber, Carrie realizes that Franklin has a gun with a silencer on it and that he’s going to kill the bomber. The problem for Carrie is that she cares more about Brody than the mission, and if the real bomber is dead, then Brody won’t be able to clear his name. Because poor, little innocent Brody is her kryptonite, Carrie disobeys orders and gets out of her car to try and stop the murder from happening. And in a move that had me cheering and grabbing at my seat in suspense at the same time, Quinn followed orders and shot Carrie in the arm to prevent her from blowing their whole mission. Finally someone had the guts to take Carrie down and show her that she can’t just do whatever she wants to do. It's nice to see that when we can't count on Carrie to use her head over her heart, we can look to Quinn and know that he'll make the right call.
The surprises don't stop there. As Carrie is profusely bleeding on her way to the hospital, She realizes that Saul, their leader, is missing in action. Cut to Venezuela where Saul casually shows up to the exact building that Brody has been hung out to dry in. Once again, it’s revealed that Saul knows much, much more than he’s letting on. This whole time he’s known where Brody is, and because Brody’s not dead yet at the hands of El Nino, it looks like Saul has had a deal with El Nino for quite some time. It's unclear what Saul's next move will be, but he better make it quick before everyone's least favorite senator replaces Saul in the CIA. (Also, let’s just talk about how Brody is going to have some serious drug addiction problems when he leaves Venezuela. Anyone else notice that he seemed to be surrounded by needles?)
And since it wouldn’t be Homeland without a little bit of soap opera drama, we should probably discuss the fact that Carrie is still pregnant. If we’re being completely realistic, there is no way that Carrie could handle raising a child. Currently, she is not mentally stable enough to care for another human being, considering she can’t even take proper care of herself. While the best move for Carrie might be for her to get an abortion, it looks like she doesn’t want to do that (after discussing it with her doctor). However, it’s highly unlikely that the writers will actually have Carrie have her baby. Chances are they’ll come up with some grandiose way to make the baby storyline disappear. When Quinn shot Carrie, I was 99 percent sure that she would have a miscarriage right then and there, and while it might have not happened upon impact, there’s still a chance that complications with arise in the hospital.
But for now, Carrie’s baby is yesterday’s news, considering her (possible) baby daddy is back in the picture. Hello, Brody.
Highlight of the episode: No Dana or Jessica. Thank God.
