HELLOS & GOODBYES
Nothin’ like you! On Oct. 20, Dan + Shay singer Shay Mooney,
25, married fiancée Hannah Billingsley at the Mooney family homestead in Arkansas. The following day, Nashville star
Clare Bowen, 33, and musician Brandon Robert Young were wed, appropriately enough, in Nashville. Also,
John Stamos, 54, announced his engagement to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh on Oct. 22, while former co-host of The View Star Jones, 55, revealed her engagement to attorney Richard Lugo on Oct. 23.
GOT TO BE THERE
Beat this. As part of its Icons and Idols Rock “N” Roll auction on Nov. 4, Julien’s Auctions in LA is putting up for bid an array of items from
— including the King of Pop’s silver sash and belt worn at various events, the red snakeskin “Beat It” jacket he sported for 1987’s Bad tour as well as the iconic rhinestone glove he used during the ’81 Triumph tour with the Jacksons. The latter is expected to fetch between $60,000 and $80,000.
A gleeful time! On Oct. 22, Glee star Matthew Morrison,
39, took to Instagram to announce “the adventures are just beginning” as he and wife Renee Puente welcomed their first child, son Revel, back on Oct. 12. Also, Mom actress Jaime Pressley
(pictured), 40, and her boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi announced on Oct. 23 the arrival of twin boys Leo and Lenon, born on Oct. 16. Meanwhile, singer-songwriter Billy Joel,
68, and his wife, Alexis, welcomed Remy Anne, their second daughter together, on Oct. 22.
Robin’s Nest is getting a renovation. Recently, CBS revealed it’s set to reboot its iconic ’80s series Magnum, P.I. Coming from producer Peter Lenkov, who’s already revived Hawaii Five-O and MacGyver for the network, the new series will stick close to the original show, which starred Tom
Selleck as it followed the investigative adventures of ex–Navy SEAL Thomas Magnum and pals TC and Rick. But, in a slight twist, Magnum’s frequent foil Jonathan Higgins will become Juliet Higgins.
Here’s something wild. Recently,
Melanie Griffith, 60, revealed she suffers from epilepsy… and that it went unrecognized for
20 years until two seizures in 2011.
“No one paid enough attention to even diagnose me,” said Melanie, who now keeps things under control via meds and relaxation… which isn’t easy. “As women, we take on family, we get the husband, we have the life, we have the children, we take care of the house, we also go to work, we can’t sleep at night because we are up with the kids. I don’t think I’ve slept for 35 years.”
Ain’t that a shame. On Oct. 24, rock ’n’ roll
legend Antoine “Fats”
Domino, famed for hits such as “I’m Walkin’” and “Blueberry Hill,” passed away at age 89. Also, musician George
Young, guitarist of the Easybeats and older brother to AC/DC’s Malcolm and Angus Young, died on Oct. 22 at 70. Finally,
Ben Bates, a former Marlboro Man and James Arness’ longserving stuntman on TV’s Gunsmoke, passed back on Oct. 4. He was 84.
