Prince Harry: Oh, behave!


Prince Harry is returning to the United States — but not to the scene of the crime.

On his last U.S. visit, the third-in-line to the British throne stormed last year into the headlines when he was caught frolicking in the nude with a woman after an alleged game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.

This time around, the 28-year-old prince will travel to the East Coast as well as Denver and Colorado Springs to support veterans’ charities and get in a bit of polo. His May 9-15 visit will include trips to Arlington National Cemetery, Walter Reed National Medical Center and an exhibition on Capitol Hill about land mine clearance, a favorite subject of his late mother, Princess Diana.

Happy couple

We have a feeling Sandra Bullock didn’t send her congratulations. The actress’ ex-husband, famed philanderer Jesse James, 43, has tied the knot with pro drag racer Alexis DeJoria. People reports the wedding went down Sunday at the Malibu home of the bride’s father, Paul Mitchell co-founder John Paul DeJoria. The former Monster Garage host has three children — a daughter and a son with his first wife, Karla, and a daughter with his second wife, Janine Lindemulder. He married Bullock in 2005; they divorced in 2010. DeJoria, 35, has a 10-year-old daughter. James’ other famous ex, Kat Von D, is engaged to electronic prince Deadmau5.

Where’s Matt?

Apparently, Matt Lauer was thisclose last year to signing a deal with his NBC rival, ABC. An article in this week’s New York magazine says the Today show anchor decided not to at the last minute, which “infuriated” ABC honchos who thought the deal was done. The report says NBC got Lauer to stay by giving him a four-day work week and a sweet $25 million salary.

The report also adds the reason for Ann Curry’s departure last summer was a lack of chemistry between her and Lauer — and he was all for her exit.

The 55-year-old newsman’s contract with the Peacock expires next year. It is unclear if it will be renewed.

A wanted man

An arrest warrant was issued for Gucci Mane after a Texas man told police the rapper hit him in the head with a champagne bottle at a downtown Atlanta nightclub March 16. James Lettley wanted to get a picture with the rapper at the Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge and was talking to a security guard when he was hit.
