Wayne Knight: Alive and well


Don't worry, everyone. Wayne Knight is alive and well, E! Online reports.

The actor, who is best known for his portrayal of Newman on Seinfeld, was the victim of an elaborate Internet death hoax.

"Some of you will be glad to hear this, others strangely disappointed, but … I am alive and well!" Knight tweeted and assured his fans on Sunday morning. He added, "Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez! Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn't know you cared. Glad to be breathing!"

These tweets come on the heels of several fake sites, including TMZ Today, a fake Us Weekly site, and eBuzzd, reporting the 58-year-old was involved in a fatal car crash with a semi-tractor trailer.

The sites reported that Knight died of blunt force trauma and two other passengers were critically injured late Saturday night along Route 446 near the Pennsylvania-New York state border in Eldred Township.

Tying the knots

Jamie Lynn Spears is a married woman.

Britney Spears' sister, 22, got married to businessman Jamie Watson, 31, on Friday. Spears' father, Jamie Spears, walked his daughter down the aisle. (Yes, a lot of Jamies.)

According to E! News, the bride wore a Liancarlo V-neck lace gown and said her vows in the Las Vegas Audobon Tea Room in front of about 150 guests. Her daughter, Maddie, was the flower girl.

Of course, big sister Britney, 32, was there with boyfriend David Lucado and her sons, who served as ring bearers, reports E!.

"So happy I could be a part of my little sister's big day," Britney tweeted.

In other wedding news, USA Today reports Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx might not be seeing so many Girls, Girls, Girls anymore. He's a married man, again.

The bassist married model-turned-DIY-expert Courtney Bingham in the Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills on Saturday, reports Entertainment Tonight, the show that's airing a special on the couple's marriage.

The theme of the wedding? Gothic rock meets French countryside. That means the bride could get away with wearing an ivory gown from her aunt's bridal shop, and Sixx could accessorize with a black bandanna.

"Hot damn. I'm a married man," tweeted Sixx, who's been married twice before.

Wedding guests

Here come Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell. But not as the bride and groom — yet.

The Bachelor couple attended a friend's wedding in the Dominican Republic on Saturday.

"Wedding fun in the Dominican Republic with @juanpagalavis and this gorgeous view," the pediatric nurse captioned a smiling snapshot of the reality stars on her Instagram account.

Galavis was dapper in a tuxedo, while Ferrell looked elegant in a long flowing bright red frock for the formal affair.
