Celebrity Scoops…updated 6.26.12
Bearded “Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis is engaged to Quinn Lundberg, according to Celebuzz. The two have also reportedly set the wedding date for August 11, and while their invitation is said to have all the formal details, it also includes a drawing of himself looking “like a little troll, while Quinn is a stunning tall blonde princess,” a source said.
Congrats to “Pretty Little Liars” star Chad Lowe and his wife Kim, who are expecting another baby. “Wow! The weather is so beautiful here in SoCal,” he began his Tweet. “Seems like a good day to spread some great news…Wait for it…My wife @ikimlowe and I are expecting our second child this fall! We are beyond thrilled and excited!” The two also have a 3-year-old daughter, Mabel Painter.
More trouble is lurking around John Travolta…the Royal Caribbean cruise ship steward who claims the actor exposed himself amidst a neck massage is now suing him for assault. Fabian Zanzi says he was delivering food to Travolta’s stateroom, when the actor asked for a neck massage. Zanzi says that he then reached out for his neck, but the actor dropped his robe, exposing a pretty excited appendage, and forcefully embraced him saying, “Take me, I will take care of you, please.” Apparently cruise management refused to allow him to recount the incident and Travolta even offered $12K to keep him quiet. But that clearly wasn’t enough dough to zip his lips!
After suffering a mild heart attack, “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek is said to be “up and about” and “in good spirits” in the hospital. The 71-year-old is expected to make a full recovery and return to work next month.
Dylan McDermott’s mother was shot in the head when he was only 5 years old in 1967. After he asked police to reopen their investigation, police in Connecticut announced yesterday that she did not commit suicide as originally determined, but rather, she was murdered.

The cute pooch from the Oscar-winning film “The Artist,” Uggie, became the first dog to place his paw prints in the cement outside the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood yesterday. Councilman Tom LaBonge even declared it “Uggie Day” in Los Angeles. “The main message that Uggie would like to send to everybody out there is to please adopt,” the canine’s trainer, Omar Van Muller, announced to the crowd. “He’s adopted. He made it. If you guys can adopt a dog – even if they don’t make it on the big screen – they’ll be big stars at your house.” Uggie, who was also in “Water for Elephants,” also retired from the film industry, but will appear at charity functions. Aww!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
