KALEY CUOCO GETS MARRIED! (ON ELLEN'S SHOW)

Kaley Cuoco gushed like crazy on yesterday’s Ellen DeGeneres show. And then she got married. "I am very, very happy," the Big Bang Theory star tells Ellen of her engagement to tennis player Ryan Sweeting. "So happy. Life is so good right now. I cannot even tell you." She admitted it's still very new. But it was love at first sight, from the sound of it. Cuoco explains that "over the summer" she was "not ready" for love. "I was very sad," she says. But a friend told her Sweeting was coming to town. "You've got one day to meet him, have a drink, and meet him. I was putting it off and really nervous about it and just not wanting to do this." But she agreed. "And so I said OK, I'm going to meet him, I'll meet him. So we go and have a dinner date and we're still on our first date. He never went home." Ellen then surprised the couple by providing an ordained minister, a veil and some flowers. "Is this legal?" asked Sweeting, before he went along with the ceremony.

On its website, the company recommends the product for active bacon lovers or those who “just sweat like pigs.” “It’s not really a deodorant, it’s an odorant,” J&D’s owner Justin Esch said. “It’s a strong meat-scented musk that comes off your body.”

BEYONCE FAN LAUNCHES "BEYONCE CANNOT ATTEND KIM KARDASHIAN’S WEDDING" PETITION 

Now that Kanye West has proposed to Kim Kardashian, many have begun wondering who will be on the guest list for the upcoming wedding.

One of the singer's BeyHive fans, John Barry, has expressed his concerns via a petition on Change.org.

He then requests, "We must do all in our power to stop Beyonce from attending that god forsaken wedding...Do us a favor Bey and rain check that train wreck of wedding."

KRISTEN BELL WORRIED SHE WOULDN’T LIKE HER BABY AS MUCH AS HER DOGS

Kristen Bell wasn’t exactly filled with motherly instincts while she was expecting daughter Lincoln. “I love people the more I know them, and I didn’t know her. It could have been a water bottle in my belly, that’s how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy,” she tells Flare in their December cover story. The actress admits that she worried about her lack of feelings and told her now-husband, actor Dax Shepherd, of her fears. “I kept saying to him in all sincerity during my pregnancy, ‘I just don’t know how I’m going to like her as much as I like the dogs.’” The couple have two pups, Lola and Mr. Shakes. “I was being serious because I f—ing love my dogs; they are my children,” Bell says. “But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset and they reprogrammed my feelings about her.”
