Kate and Wills married two years ago: April 29, 2011


What a difference two years make.

Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated their second wedding anniversary on Monday. But not together.

Nope, no problems in royal paradise. William has duties in Anglesey, Wales, where he is a Royal Air Force pilot.

If you want dirt, you’re not going to get it with these two. A rep for St. James’ Palace said in a statement, “I’m afraid we’re not giving any details on their anniversary plans.” But various UK media outlets reported the couple did share a nice dinner together Friday night in London.

On April 29, 2011, the world watched a real-life fairy tale as the two exchanged vows at Westminster Abbey. Kate is currently six months pregnant with — rumor has it — a girl.

Battling demons

Ever wonder how Tom Sizemore is still walking around with all his past issues? So does he. In his autobiography, By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There, Sizemore details his ascent to the height of cinema, including working for Steven Spielberg — and his drug-fueled descent that left him imprisoned and out of options. In the book, Sizemore also recounts his friendships with Hollywood’s elite — Sean Penn, Robert Downey Jr. and Robert De Niro among them — and dalliances with actresses Edie Falco, Elizabeth Hurley and Juliette Lewis.

It was during Sizemore’s tabloid romance with former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss that his life truly fell apart. He was convicted in 2003 of harassing, annoying and physically abusing Fleiss. While Sizemore admits in the book to being “immature” and says he regrets may of his actions, he denies striking her. As for Fleiss, she was seen Sunday on Oprah: Where Are They Now?, where she showed her life, helping renovate Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch, a brothel in Crystal, Nevada, and the subject of the HBO reality show, Cathouse.

Someone give Kelly Rutherford a job. The forme r Gossip Girl star told E! News she is on the “brink of bankruptcy” thanks to a horrendous custody battle with her ex, German businessman Daniel Giersch. He had his visa revoked and had to move back to Europe. In the initial ruling, a judge ruled that Rutherford’s schedule was more flexible so she would be the one doing the traveling. The actress, 44, jets back and forth between New York and Monaco, where Hermes, 6, and Helena, 3, live with their father, who has joint legal custody. Rutherford said she has spent virtually all her savings, cashed in her pension and shares an apartment with a friend.

Looking for love

Make her a match! Martha Stewart confirmed she will join online dating site Match.com. The media mogul, 71, said on Today she wanted “to have breakfast with somebody. ... I’d like to go to bed with somebody. Sleep with somebody.”

Out of there

After one season as one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Marisa Zanuck is exiting stage left, she told Celebuzz.“I wasn’t asked back,” she said. “It’s as simple as that and I’m OK with it.”

What an honor

Brown University has announced that Ben Affleck will receive an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts degree at commencement May 26. Other recipients of honorary doctorate degrees at the esteemed school include Miami Dade College President Eduardo Padron. Affleck, 40, attended University of Vermont and majored in Middle Eastern studies at Occidental College in L.A., where he dropped out after four semesters.

Making history

If tawdry sex tape news is what you want, you’re in luck. Forget Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham; that’s just too disturbing. Ray J — the man who may be partially responsible for Kim Kardashian’s ascent to fame — seems like he’s looking for some publicity again. The video for his new song I Hit It First features a brunette woman who looks a lot like the pregnant reality star, who costarred with Ray J in an intimate home video in 2003. It was “leaked” four years later.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
