Entertainer Quickie: Couples’ News on William & Kate, Mark Ballas, and Khloe & Lamar
Our Entertainer Quickie provides you with today’s hottest buzz all in one article. Read about the update on Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, the rumored relationship between DWTS’s Mark Ballas and recently-booted American Idol Pia Toscano and the new TV show Khloe & Lamar.
High-profiled couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s upcoming nuptial is drawing closer. With only 18 days until their wedding day, April 29th at Westminster Abbey, the guest list is slowly but surely being leaked.
Singer and close friend of the late Princess Diana, Sir Elton John and partner David Furnish have received invitations, so have sports star David Beckham and wife Victoria. Other celebrities on the guest list include Guy Ritchie (Madonna’s ex-husband) and comedian Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean).
Middleton reportedly invited two of her former rumored lovers while Prince William, not to be outdone, is said to have invited all four of his exes. Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry’s on-off girlfriend also received an invitation.
So who didn’t get an invite? Most notably, President Obama.
It seems though that the couple is planning much more than just their guest list.
The soon-to-be newlyweds have arranged for an invitation-only nightclub to be set up at Buckingham Palace to celebrate their wedding day until after hours. However, before the partying can begin, they must first attend the dinner party hosted by Prince Charles that will include all members of the royal family.
Mark Ballas & Pia Toscano
Last Thursday, American Idol shocked viewers as favorite Pia Toscano got voted off. However things clearly didn’t stay awry for Toscano for too long. Dancing with the Stars Mark Ballas and Toscano were spotted dining at an L.A. mall the Friday night after her big elimination.
So how did they meet? It seems that Toscano has always had her eyes on Ballas, but did not know how to get him to notice her. After all, compared to her only newly-found Idol fame, Mark is a famous dancer. And even though the Idol trailer sets near the
DWTS trailer on the same lot, Toscano found no way of introducing herself. So what’s a girl to do?
Well lucky for her, Chris Jericho came to her aid. According to TMZ, Toscano gave her phone number to a mutual friend who gave it to Jericho where it made its way to Ballas.
The result: a date on Friday night. However, just this morning, Pia claimed on a radio show that her relationship with Ballas is simply “just friends”. Only 2 years in age difference, Toscano (22), Ballas (24) seem to make a great couple, so why is Toscano denying that something is going on between them? Only time will tell whether this newly found “friendship” will turn into something more.
Khloe & Lamar
