Pretty Little Liars star Ryan Merriman is a married man.

The actor and his fiancee Kristen McMullen tied the knot on September 5, his representative confirms to Us Weekly.

Merriman, who played bad guy Ian Thomas on ABC Family hit show Pretty Little Liars until he was killed off in 2012, popped the question to McMullen in Auckland, New Zealand on New Year’s Eve 2012, but the private pair didn’t announce the engagement until April 2013.

While details on the nuptials have yet to be revealed, the Final Destination 3 star previously told People.com he was leaving all the wedding planning to his bride-to-be.

He said, “You know it’s her day. I’d marry her on a beach. I don’t care. We could go to (Las) Vegas. But she’s a very classy one, so… if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”

Congrats to the happy couple!

Whitney Houston is set to return to the charts from beyond the grave with the release of her first-ever live album.

The tragic superstar’s longtime producer and mentor, Clive Davis, has compiled audio and video footage from the singer’s most memorable gigs for Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances, which will be available as a CD and DVD package in November.

Davis reveals he felt compelled to remind the world how talented Houston was after her personal struggles with addiction overshadowed her career achievements in her final years.

He explains, “Stemming from the ’80s or ’90s, she, without question, was the greatest vocalist in the world. I want history to know that…

“Whitney, in the last two or three years of her life, was not in the best form, so memories are short. This CD/DVD will establish that there was no one like her. It’s a phenomenal album.”

Davis teamed up with the late icon’s mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, and her manager and sister-in-law, Patricia Houston, to compile the album, but watching over hours and hours of old footage of his protegee was a tough task.

He says, “It was bittersweet. On the one hand, I, who was there, still marvel at these incredible live performances. This is her first live album… It was a marvel that she was as powerful and incredible as she was, but bittersweet because she died too young.”

Houston died in 2012, aged 48.

Actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio has landed a prestigious new role as a United Nations Messenger of Peace on Climate Change.

The Wolf of Wall Street star, who is a passionate environmentalist, will embrace his new job by speaking at the United Nations Climate Summit in New York next week, where he hopes to raise awareness about global warming issues.

A statement released by DiCaprio reads:

“It’s an honor to accept the role of UN Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community.

“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history – it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”

News of the appointment, announced on Tuesday by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, comes just days after it emerged that DiCaprio will be honored for his environmental activism at the eighth annual Clinton Global Citizen Awards.

The actor joins the likes of Charlize Theron, Stevie Wonder, Edward Norton and George Clooney, who have all been made Messengers of Peace by U.N. officials in recent years.

Clooney stepped down from the peacekeeping role earlier this year after six years due to ongoing personal and professional commitments

August Alsina collapsed during a sold-out concert in New York City on Monday.

The “No Love” singer was performing at The Irving Plaza venue in Manhattan when he stumbled off the stage and fell into the audience. Security guards rushed to pick the star up and carry him backstage.

Witnesses tells TMZ that Alsina, best known for songs such as “I Luv This Sh*t”,”Ghetto” and “Make It Home,” was carried out of the venue on a stretcher but was well enough to wave goodbye to his worried fans. Videos of the dramatic fall have since appeared on Instagram and Youtube.

Monday’s gig was part of his Testimony Live tour. It is not known if the remaining tour dates, including the recently sold Philly and Boston, will go remain.

There’s also no word as to what caused the unfortunate incident.

Eminem is suing a political party in New Zealand over allegations they used one of his songs without permission.

Lawyers representing the hip-hop star and his music publishers filed paperwork at the High Court in Wellington on Tuesday accusing the National Party of copyright infringement for using his song “Lose Yourself” in campaign adverts.

Joel Martin, who represents Eminem’s publishing company, says, “It is both disappointing and sadly ironic that the political party responsible for championing the rights of music publishers in New Zealand by the introduction of the three strikes copyright reforms should itself have so little regard for copyright.”

The song was used in adverts for Prime Minister John Key’s re-election campaign, and party representatives have denied any wrongdoing and vowed to fight the lawsuit, saying, “The National party will be defending this action vigorously. As the matter is now before the courts we will not be making any further public comment.”

Netflix is now known for its entertaining original programming just as much as being a streaming service and now the network has teamed up with Judd Apatow to spread Love amongst its viewers.

The new series will star Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust and Netflix has already ordered 2 seasons of the show, the first set to premiere in 2016 and the second to be released the following year.

You can read the entire press release, including a description of the new series Love below!

Beverly Hills, CA, September 16, 2014 – Judd Apatow, Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin are bringing an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships to Love, a new Netflix original series, licensed globally and debuting in 2016 in all Netflix territories. Netflix has made a two-season commitment to Love, which debuts with 10 episodes in 2016 and 12 the following year.

Love follows Gus (Paul Rust from I Love You, Beth Cooper and Inglorious Basterds) and Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid. Jacobs is best known for her role as Britta in the critically-acclaimed series Community and can next be seen in Community’s 6th season, Life Partners, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Girls.

The half-hour comedy series is produced by Apatow Productions and Legendary Television, and created and written by Apatow, Rust and Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Girls). Brent Forrester (The Office, The Simpsons) will executive produce.

“Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”

“I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project,” said Apatow. “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”
“We at Legendary are thrilled to be working with the wonderfully talented Judd and excited to partner with the Netflix team,” said Bruce Rosenblum, Legendary Television’s President of Television and Digital Media “We look forward to validating their support for this innovative and genuinely funny series.”

Beyoncé has cast doubt on rumors she is set to become a mother for a second time by posing with a glass of champagne at an end of tour party.

The singer and her husband Jay Z were rumored to be expecting a sibling for their daughter Blue Ivy after the rapper reportedly changed the lyrics in one of his songs during a live show in France on Friday to suggest the star is pregnant.

The rapper is said to have rapped in his song “Beach Is Better,” “Pregnant with another one,” in place of, “I replace it with another one.”

However, the pair appears to have dismissed the pregnancy rumors by posing with glasses of champagne at an end of tour party just a day after the reported lyric change.

The snap, which shows Jay Z and Beyoncé laughing and holding up their glasses of booze, was posted on the rapper’s Life + Times Twitter page.

What do you think? Could the champagne have been non-alcoholic or are these just more false rumors surrounding the pair? Let us know in the comments below!

Hollywood couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have reportedly become first-time parents.

The star gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, according to Us Weekly magazine.

The private couple never confirmed pregnancy reports, and Mendes even dismissed the rumors during an appearance on Ellen earlier this year, calling them “so ridiculous” and explaining, “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out.”

Sources revealed to US Weekly that Ryan had been a doting father-to-be for Eva throughout the pregnancy. “Ryan goes out and gets the groceries. [Eva's] been wanting pasta, and he’s cooking her meals,” and further stating that “Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be.”

The actors began dating in 2011 after shooting crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines together.

Congrats to the couple after welcoming what can only be one of the most attractive babies of all time!
