It was real and evident for sure."
Hollywoodlife.com says Jennifer Lopez 's friends are shocked at how low key her wedding was. A source tells the website, “Jennifer’s Las Vegas wedding has all her friends amazed at the way this relationship with Ben has transformed her. It’s not a big shock to anyone that she decided to elope, she’d been saying they might go that route to keep it more private, but it’s a huge shock that they were so low-key about it all. Jennifer changing into her dress in some random room at the Little White Wedding chapel, and being thrilled to bits about it, that’s just not something any of her friends ever expected to hear from her.''

OK! magazine claims Tyra Banks allegedly threatened to quit ''Dancing with the Stars'' after Alfonso Ribeiro was hired to co-host. A source tells the magazine, “Tyra threatened to quit when she found out about the plans to add a co-host next to her when the show returns. Tyra was livid and feels betrayed — not because the producers clearly have lost faith in her abilities to single handily carry the show, but also because no one had the decency to tell her what was going on until it was a done deal. Tyra is supposed to be an executive producer on the show. When she signed up to host, she insisted that she also be a producer to make sure she was sitting at the table where the decisions are made. Now it is clear that the title means nothing. They just gave it to her to shut her up. Well, they are messing with the wrong girl. Tyra walks when she is not happy. ABC should know that. When Tyra wasn’t happy with her way her daytime talk show was being produced, she quit. If Tyra doesn’t feel like she is being respected, she is gone.”

My ex-husband and his family are bombarding me with negative emails because he found out I have been giving my kids Mountain Dew in the morning. The drink helps them wake up. It also helps me get them ready for camp and get a good breakfast in them. My ex and his relatives think I'm terrible for doing this and say it's wrong to give them sugar so early in the morning. I'm a single mom with two jobs and no help. Try being me. It's not like I'm giving them a two-liter bottle. Am I wrong?
