Wedding Fever

--Skating with Celebrities star Kristy Swanson was arrested late Saturday night for allegedly assaulting the ex-wife of her companion and former skating partner, Lloyd Eisler. "I had to go the police station where I had an appointment at 9 p.m. to begin the process of being arrested," she confirms. Swanson was released on $500 (Canadian) bail. Officers escorted her into the police station in Kingston, Ontario, after Eisler's ex, Marcia O'Brien, filed a complaint against Swanson. Swanson, 37, claims she was attacked by O'Brien in front of Eisler and O'Brien's children. The actress's rep, Michael Sands, says Swanson plans to press charges against O'Brien, saying that police took photographs of her back and other parts of her upper extremities to document the injuries. Eisler, 44, a former world champion pairs skater, and Swanson, who starred in the big-screen version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, met in 2006 while filming the FOX reality series, and their romance created a scandal in the skating community when Eisler left his pregnant wife for her. The pair welcomed a baby boy in February.

--Nicole Kidman celebrated her 40th birthday on the beach in Sydney, Australia on Saturday with a party thrown by her friends. With husband Keith Urban expected to join the actress for her actual birthday date on Wednesday, it was left to family and friends to help star celebrate her last weekend as a 30-something on Bondi Beach. It was largely an all-girl's affair as Kidman's sister Antonia and their mom Janelle invited 30 of the star's closest pals from Australia and Hollywood to join them at Bondi Icebergs for a pre-birthday dinner. And Kidman, who will also celebrate the first anniversary of her marriage to Urban later this summer, certainly isn't feeling sore about hitting 40. In a recent interview, she said, "It feels just right. I don't feel what I thought that wretched age was going to be like. I have done a lot of things and it has been full up to this point, especially the past few years, so I am grateful for that."

--Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men married entertainment reporter Lisa Joyner in Mexico on Saturday. The ceremony took place at the Chapel at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with a reception at a private residence. The bride wore an A-line Empire waist Monique Lhuillier gown with ivory lace over champagne satin.

--Nicole Richie has ignited reports she is to wed boyfriend Joel Madden after she was spotted at a Hollywood party wearing a large diamond sparkler on her ring finger. Richie has so far refused to confirm or deny recent reports of a rumored pregnancy, prompted by pictures of the skinny star with a bloated belly. And now the Good Charlotte rocker - who accompanied Richie to the YSL Pool Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday night - appears to have proposed to his lover. An eyewitness tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "It was one big rock surrounded by more diamonds. (Madden was) overly attentive to her - keeping his arm around her all night - and repeatedly asked her if she was OK."

--Singer Rod Stewart has wed for the third time. The 62-year-old rocker said "I do" early Saturday with model Penny Lancaster, 36, his girlfriend of about seven years, in a small town just outside the Italian Riviera resort of Portofino. The ceremony took place at the 17th century Villa Durazzo in the town of Santa Margherita. Mariagrazia Benazzi, the town hall official who celebrated the wedding in lieu of the mayor, says the only people present were the bride, the groom and two witnesses.

--Busta Rhymes must be upset at getting older. The rapper celebrated his 35th birthday last weekend at Suite in Miami where, spies told The Post's Marianne Garvey, "he acted miserable and no one in his entourage spoke to him all night. Busta just stood in a corner alone with his bodyguard. When one of the waitresses brought him a bottle of Cristal with a lit sparkler sticking out of the cork, he claimed he never wanted it and ordered her to send it back." Rhymes then complained that he wasn't paying for the liquor and spent the rest of the night mouthing the words to his own songs that the deejay played for him.

--Gianfranco Ferre, the Italian designer known as the "architect of fashion" for his structured, sculpted shapes and for his groundbreaking tenure at Christian Dior, died Sunday, a hospital said. He was 62. Ferre was taken to the San Raffaele hospital in Milan on Friday after suffering a massive brain hemorrhage. The hospital, in a statement authorized by Ferre's family, said he died Sunday night. Condolences from Italy's top designers poured in as word of his death spread - just days before the menswear spring-summer 2008 collections were to get under way in Milan later this week. Giorgio Armani, perhaps the king of the "Made in Italy" world to which Ferre also belonged, said he had long admired Ferre's artistic and intellectual work. "When I think of Gianfranco Ferre, the idea that comes immediately to mind is the dignity, the calm, the sense of responsibility that he brought to his work," Armani said, according to the ANSA news agency.

--Bob Barker and Ellen Degeneres dominated Friday's Daytime Emmy Awards.

--Iceman had a serious celebrity sighting on Friday. "Brad Pitt was just outside my building with his kids ... eating at that Mars 2112 restaurant and surrounded by a hundred paparazzi." Thanks for the scoop, Ice!

--Eva Longoria's wedding to Tony Parker is fast approaching, and her mane man, Ken Paves, has told the tiny housewife he'll do her hair for free as a gift. Also offering his service free of charge is Longoria's famed stylist, Robert Verdi. Meanwhile, some of Longoria's pals are worried about Parker. "He is just not gracious," one of them said. "He puts himself ahead of her. He always orders at restaurants before her and is rude to waiters. We just don't have a good feeling about him."

--Candy Spelling clearly has too much time on her hands. As if penning a letter to Joe Francis wasn't enough, she's now felt the need to write Britney:

Dear Britney:

You made me do it. I didn't plan to write another letter now. I took two weeks off from TMZ.com because I didn't feel strongly about what anyone was doing -- or else I couldn't decide which side to believe.

You've driven me back to my laptop to ask why, if you have to slither in and out of cars, do clumsy imitations of gymnasts and wear clothes that are just too tight, trashy or skimpy, do you have to pose in front of photographers all the time? We've seen the body parts, poses and clumsy attention-seeking tricks before. You're wearing out your welcome. Some people never can turn away from a train wreck, so who can blame the photographers for waiting for your next one? Do you really want captions such as TMZ's own "Victim of Pap Smear" and "Does Britney Change Clothes for Cash" to be your legacy? You can do much better.

Unlike some others who are famous for being famous, you initially earned the fame and respect you achieved. You were a giant star, a Mouseketeer, a singer whose song titles became part of everyone's vocabulary. You made some missteps. We all do. But, when you become more famous for hideous, irresponsible actions than accomplishments, it's time to step back and figure out where you want your life to go. So many young girls still see you as a role model. Give those kids a reason to look up to you. They're probably even tired of the endless speculation about what undergarments you may or may not be wearing. I know their parents would like you to move on and get dressed. Even the school uniform was more dignified.

You're doing all right with the wigs. I know the paparazzi have a bounty on your (wigless) head. I think it's great that you have a variety of wigs (some very stylish) when you go out in public. If you do feel you need to show how your hair is growing back, at least make a deal with a photographer to sell the photo and donate the money to charity. Do you know what a statement that would make?

Enough with the sorry grabs for attention. Deep down, especially for your sons, people want you to succeed. You can always get attention if you need it. Visit someone famous in jail and attract a zillion photographers if you're that addicted to fame. Americans like winners. We like those stories about what people do with second chances. How about a moratorium on train wrecks and some time out for paying back the fans who helped you succeed?

Random Thought of the Day:
Have any of you seen "Notes on a Scandel" with Dame Judy and Cate Blanchett? I watched it over the weekend (I know, I know...I'm a little behind in my movie watching since it was up for Oscars this past February). I would highly recommend it. The acting was just fantastic. And the writing is edgy and intelligent. It reminded me a little of a Hitchcock movie in that you were walking a fine line in wondering whether Dame Judy's character was just a little neurotic and lonely, or a pure-bred psychopath! Good stuff!

2 The highs and lows of the comments on this blog are very bizarre. One week you'll have 15 or more per day, then you'll have 1 per day for a full week or two. Hmm ...
