Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz’s Dream Wedding

As the sun set over the serene Mediterranean Sea on July 31st, an expectant Alicia Keys and her fiancé, music producer Swizz Beatz, exchanged vows in front of family and close friends, including Queen Latifah, Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Louboutin and Bono.

“I love everything about her,” Swizz tells Life & Style about his new wife.

The private event was held at a gorgeous seafront estate on the southern coast of the French island of Corsica. Deepak Chopra, the couple’s pal, officiated the intimate service and Swizz’s eldest son, 9-year-old Prince Nasir Dean, served as his father's best man.

“The whole ceremony was magical, like something out of a dream,” a source says.

The multi award-winning singer wore a custom-made, Grecian inspired one-shouldered silk Vera Wang gown with crystal detailing, a diamond necklace headband, custom made by Jacob the Jeweler, and jewel-encrusted Christian Louboutin sandals. Swizz, who was born to the name Kasseem Dean, sported a white Tom Ford tuxedo with a black bow tie.

The newlyweds are expecting a child in early November. Swizz is also dad to son Kasseem and is rumored to have a third child.

 

Giveaway: Phil&Teds Smart Stroller Bundle (Value: $359.99)

Jun 28 2010 8:30amJul 2 2010 7:00pm

phil&teds Smart™ – the complete compact stroller system is here!

Described by both the company and industry commentators as "the complete compact stroller system," the smart looks set to reshape the stroller market with its introduction of ground breaking technology like revolutionary 'aerocore' seating. "We set out to prove that 'compact' needn't mean 'functionless'," says design head Phil Brace. "The compact market has, since 1964, been dominated by the umbrella stroller which - other than being light - does little to meet key parental stroller needs. We wanted to rectify that."

In creating a sleek & strong aluminum framed compact, weighing just 14lbs, yet featuring flat folding, a seat recline and both bassinet and infant car seat adaptability, Brace's team has done just that. Innovative technology is at the heart of the smart's smarts. The AEROCORE seat, first introduced on the Highpod highchair earlier in 2010, seeks to resolve key parental stroller issues. Its unique properties ensure that the seat is ergonomically supportive yet cushioning, to keep child occupants happy for longer; lightweight yet strong & durable, to trump an umbrella's flimsy frame and easily torn fabric; breathable yet waterproof and wipeclean, to counter the lack of hygiene and all weather suitability of all other compact strollers. "We've been in this industry for quite a few years now, and we've long dreamed of reinventing the compact stroller."

Features of phil&teds smart stroller:

  • lightweight and compact
  • bassinet compatible
  • car seat compatible
  • single-action "slide to fold" functionality
  • follow-the-sun sunhood
  • twist & slide, 5 point safety harness
  • 2-position reclining seat
  • rear suspension
  • aerocore seat- waterproof, wipe-clean, hypoallergenic, non-toxic, insulating, ventilating and UV resistant

We are giving away 1 smart stroller bundle (smart stroller + peanut bassinet). The retail value is $359.99 available for purchase at pishposhbaby.com.

Islam becomes taboo topic on TV in Wake of ‘South Park’ threats and Times Square scare

mandvi_dailyshow_norm2_259x146

Don’t mess with Allah. That’s the new, unwritten code in Hollywood following the one-two punch of Islamic extremists’ threats against the creators of “South Park” and the failed bombing attempt outside the cartoon’s parent company, Viacom, in New York’s Times Square.

In the current, supercharged climate, it just isn’t worth endangering the safety of an entire production staff or network by pursuing a storyline that Muslim extremists might find offensive, media executives and writers tell Fox411.com.

Aasif Mandvi, a self-described “liberal Muslim” and the “senior Islamic correspondent” for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, said on air after the “South Park” threats that it would upset him to see the Prophet Muhammad depicted in a cartoon. But, he added: “Here’s what’s more upsetting. Someone, in the name of a faith that I believe in, threatening another person for doing it.”

But after the failed Times Square terror attack, “The Daily Show” asked Mandvi not to comment further on the matter, according to his spokesman. In fact, reps for the networks and television shows reached for comment on this article, including Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, FOX, NBC, and CBS, either failed to respond or asked to speak on background for fear of retribution.

And it isn’t just comedians on fake newscasts who are being muzzled. One writer for a scripted drama fold Fox411.com that in one of his show’s final episodes, there had been a minor plot point involving a Muslim extremist. Last week it was removed and the script was rewritten, he said.

Hussein Rashid, religion professor and religion dispatches associate editor at  Hofstra University, said he is concerned that self-censorship will lead to a shutdown of the dialogue that must continue if people can be brought to understand the true meaning of Islam.

“I don’t think it is ever smart to self-censor,” Rashid told Fox411.com. “I am a big believer that the response to speech should always be more speech. I think this ‘South Park’ episode has been good for that conversation.”

But when it comes to Islam, the conversation seems only to be getting quieter.

Random House canceled the 2008 publication of Sherry Jones’ “The Jewel of Medina” out of fear it would incite acts of violence, and last year Yale University decided remove all images of Muhammad from Jytte Klausen’s book, “The Cartoons that Shook the World,” a book commenting on the Danish cartoon controversy that sparked violence in the Muslim world.

The subject has gotten so sensitive, media pros are even chilling the conversation in forums where no one is watching.

“The writer’s room has always been a safe place for jokes of any sort, the dirtiest jokes you can think of that you could never tell in public because your own mother would hate you,” a network comedy writer told Fox411.com. “But for the first time we feel like there is a taboo.”

But religion in general hasn’t become taboo — just Islam. The Cartoon Network squeaked under the radar in March when it showed a racy depiction of Jesus voiced by jailed rapper Lil’ Wayne. And Comedy Central is developing ”JC,” a half-hour cartoon about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic father” and live a regular life in New York City.

One show recently appeared willing to go out on a limb. The April 27 episode of the CBS series “The Good Wife” featured a storyline in which a newspaper editor was killed for publishing an editorial cartoon showing the Prophet Muhammad being searched by airport security officers.

But that episode was written and filmed before the “South Park” threats, and it aired before the Times Square terror scare. Whether the same script would be written today is an open question.

“[A] liberal democracy depends on the principle that each person is entitled to hold and express his or her own beliefs,” said Svetlana Mintcheva, director of the Arts Program for the National Coalition Against Censorship. ”The failure to stand up for free expression emboldens those who would attack and undermine it.”

Shauna Sand & Her Shopgirls

Playboy model and occasional actress, Shauna Sand, brought two of her daughters - Alexandra, 12, and Isabella, who turns 8 next month - along for a shopping trip to Steven & Co. Jewelers in Beverly Hills on Thursday (January 14). Shauna's 10-year-old daughter Victoria was not seen with the trio. The girls' father is Shauna's ex-husband, Leave it to Lamas star Lorenzo Lamas.

Shauna can now add porn star to her resume. The 39-year-old mother of three recently decided to let Vivid Entertainment distribute her personal sex video, Shauna Sand Exposed, at a party hosted for her at Rick’s Cabaret-NYC on January 12.

At first I was outraged when I heard that a third party had given Vivid my personal and intimate video and I was ready to sue,” says Shauna. “This was a video that I made with my ex-boyfriend for our personal pleasure. But, I finally decided to take control and work with Vivid on the distribution. I’m so glad I did…I was proud of the footage when it was taken and I still feel good about it. I’m 39 years old, I’m in great shape, and I look forward to being in love again.”

AJ’s Body Will Be Exhumed for a Second Autopsy


The body of the ex-fiancé of RHOA star Kandi Burruss AJ Jewell is being exhumed for a second autopsy at the request of his father who believes his son’s cause of death still is unclear.

The first autopsy concluded that AJ died of blunt force trauma to the head and a later report says that sickle-cell disease was another cause of death.

However AJ’s father, Rev. A.B. Jewell, said his son did not have sickle-cell disease. He says he wants the public to know his son did not have sickle-cell disease, and hopes that this next autopsy will prove that AJ was murdered. AJ died after an altercation at an Atlanta strip club in October.
