WED­DING BELLS

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

Michael Jack­son

— 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.

BABY BOOM

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

68, and his wife, Alexis, wel­comed Remy Anne, their sec­ond daugh­ter to­gether, on Oct. 22.

MAG­NUM OPUS

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.

ON CON­DI­TION

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.”

FAREWELLS

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.
