Keira Knightley Marries James Righton & We Have All the Amazing Details

Keira Knightley is a married woman now! On Saturday, May 4, the star wed boyfriend and Klaxons keyboardist James Righton. A source tells Us Weekly that it was a very moving ceremony and that Keira cried tears or joy as they exchanged their vows. Well, she certainly had more than one reason to be happy. She pulled off something most stars are incapable of doing.

She had a small, lovely, low-key wedding. The couple, who got engaged last May,  said ‘I do’ in front of a small group of guests at a town hall in Mazan, France. With so many lavish, star-studded nuptials, her quiet ceremony comes as a refreshing surprise. Most celebrities get hitched in lavish, six-figure fetes that are just too over-the-top to believe. Read more on The Stir…

A 10-Year Marriage Contract Could Save Us All From Divorce

With a divorce rate hovering around 50 percent, a figure I see very clearly in my personal life, it’s easy to see why so many people think the current model of marriage is dead. Clearly, this “’til death do us part” stuff isn’t working for a whole lot of people and something has to give. After all, why do so few marriages really make it over the long haul?

Writer Emma Johnson discusses this in her latest blog post on Wealthy Single Mommy. She says marriage is dead and we need a new model. In particular, we need a 10-year contract that we can either renew or discard depending on how the marriage is working. Read more on The Stir…

These Creepy Comments From Children Will Give You Chills

When my youngest son was maybe 2 years old, he crept outside our bedroom door very early one morning while my husband and I were still asleep. I awoke to a deadpan, tiny voice whispering, “Let her in. Let. Her. In. Let her in,” over and over and over.

Turns out the cat was pawing at the back door, and he was just informing us it was time to, you know, let her in. But holy shitballs, that wasn’t even remotely my first thought. (My first thought was vampires, okay? IT WAS VAMPIRES.)

That was a legitimately spooky moment, but it doesn’t even hold a (flickering, ghostly) candle to this hair-raising Reddit thread titled, “Parents, what is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?” Clocking in at over 11,000 comments, the forum is filled with an amazing array of stories ranging from hilariously weird to downright terrifying. Read more on The Stir…

Jessica Alba’s Crazy Double Corset Weight Loss Trick

Jessica Alba has two beautiful daughters — Honor, 4, and Haven, 1. As fantastic as she looks these days, however, you would never know that woman actually carried and gave birth to them. Her body is amazing. She’s not one of those celebrities who just magically bounced back to her pre-baby weight either. Instead she said it took discipline, and a special tactic that is questionable at best.

It was … girdles. In a recent interview with Net-a-Porter’s online magazine, she said she wore two of them day and night for three months. Day and night. “It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” she said. “It was sweaty but worth it.” Girdles, seriously? That’s how she gets that bod? Read more on The Stir…

“50 Shades Of Grey” Frontrunner Breaks Her Silence On Starring As Anastasia

Ever since the “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan trailer frenzy first broke out, the actress formerly and best known as Rory Gilmore, Alexis Bledel, has been “cast” as Anastasia Steele. Again and again, she’s showed up on YouTube “opposite” the likes of Matt Bomerand Henry Cavill as Christian Grey! it’s clear she’s quickly become a fan favorite for the role, but she herself has kept mum on the subject of going up for the super-steamy, extremely coveted part.
