Most women dream of a lavish, beautiful wedding as a little girl but these 15 celebrity women traded in a trip down the aisle for a trip to city hall.
Daytime darling Kelly Ripa met her husband, Mark Consuelos, on the set of ABC’s “All My Children.” After keeping their relationship a secret for over a year, the couple snuck off to Vegas to elope. Ripa and Consuelos continued to play married couple Hayley and Mateo on the soap opera for six years until leaving the show. Now they have three children together and Ripa is currently the co-host of “Live! With Kelly and Michael.”

Guess Which Celeb Gabourey Sidibe Would Sleep With (And Make Sure She’d Wrap It Up Because He’s Fertile!)
Gabourey Sidibe is officially the dirty 30 (as of May 6) and Wendy Williams invited the actress to plenty of dirty talk during her appearance on her talk show today.
Wendy put the upcoming co-star of “American Horror Story” in her hot seat and didn’t waste any time getting turning up the heat with four degrees of questions. By the time Wendy got to the 40 degree mark, she hit Gabourey with this interesting quest into her thoughts on her former male co-stars: “Out of all of your former co-stars — Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Lenny Kravitz — who would you marry, who would you sleep with, and who would you run over with your car?” Here’s what Gabby said:
“I would marry Lenny Kravitz because I feel like he’s a good strong Christian man – with his own island. I’d probably sleep with Eddie Murphy, but I’d wrap it up because he’s fertile. And I guess I’d hit Colin Ferrell with my car—nothing personal but I don’t know him like that.”
Poor Colin Ferrell, he wasn’t even supposed to be in the discussion. But more importantly, Eddie Murphy?? To be fair, it’s not like Gabby had the best choices to begin with, but I think I would’ve had to choose Lenny Kravitz twice, or switch my answers around. I’m pretty sure Eddie could buy his own island if he wanted to too. But, shout out to Gabby for the safe sex plug. Always gotta wrap it up.
Something you ladies might be able to relate with more is the answer Gabourey gave for her 100 degree question of who she would have a one-night stand with. The answer? Ryan Gosling. Good luck with that, she might have to fight off a few hundred thousand people to get to that one, including Eva Mendes.
Check out Gabby’s full appearance on Wendy below. What do you think about her hot seat answers?
Although they broke up and moved on with other people, we just can’t seem to get over these high-profile celebrity relationships that we thought were a match made in heaven. Here are 15 celebrity couples that we wish could have stood the test of time.
Kanye and Alexis
Before there was Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or even Kanye and Amber Rose, there was Kanye and Alexis. The Chicago rapper/producer met Alexis Phifer back in 2002 and the cute couple dated on and off for four years before West finally popped the question. After an 18-month whirlwind engagement the two went their separate ways citing his hectic touring schedule as the cause. West dated then-unknown model Amber Rose before settling down with the reality show superstar who is now pregnant with their first child.

There was a time when Eddie Murphy ruled the box office. Films like Trading Places and Coming to America were mega hits. But times have changed for Murphy, and now according to a Forbes survey (via Statista), Murphy, whose last movie A Thousand Words failed to lure in moviegoers, is the most overpaid actor in Hollywood.
“Eddie Murphy’s past three movies generated only $2.30 at the box office for every dollar of his salary, making him the most overpaid actor in Hollywood last year,” reports the Huffington Post. Murphy is going to try his luck next on television. He is reprising his role from the 1984 classic film Beverly Hills Cop for a TV show.
Following Murphy on the overpaid actors list is Katherine Heigl. The actress brings in only $3.40 for every dollar of her salary. The crime thriller One For the Money in which she starred as a divorcee who starts working at a family member’s bail-bond business, recovered less than its $40-million budget at the box office worldwide. Heigl is next to star alongside Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, and Amanda Seyfried in the romantic comedy The Big Wedding, in theaters later this month. Given the time of year and the cast lineup, she could have much more success with that.
Rounding out the top three on this not-so-great list was Reese Witherspoon, whose flicks earn just $3.90 per dollar of her paycheck.
Stand up comedian turned actor Eddie Murphy has been making us laugh for over 35 years. He has starred in almost 40 movies, including three stand-up comedy specials, and today the New York native celebrates his 52nd year on this earth. In honor of his special day, here are 15 hilarious lines from the funnyman over the years.
In his debut as the romantic lead in the 1992 hit Boomerang, Murphy played the dashing womanizing Marcus Graham. In one memorable scene, Graham talks to his boys, played by Martin Lawrence and David Alan Grier, about his ultimate turn off: a beautiful woman with messed up feet.
“She was beautiful but her feet were jacked up. I pulled the covers back and it was hammer time I should’ve known something was up I saw the little bumps on the top of her shoes when I met her but I thought maybe it was an old shoe or something but you would never, ever think a woman that fine would have hammer time in her shoes.”
‘They Said It About Oprah and Gayle:’ Johnny Gill Sort of Addresses Gay Rumors and Eddie Murphy Relationship
If you’ve been around for a little while, you’ve probably heard those vintage rumors, which imply that New Edition singer Johnny Gill is on the downlow and his longtime “bromance” with actor and comedian Eddie Murphy is really a romance. For years whispers have alleged that Gill and Murphy have been carrying on a secret relationship disguised as a friendship. During a recent interview with OMG Insider, the 46-year-old singer addressed the speculations. Check out what he had to say.
On gay rumors:
“Let me make sure we’re clear on something, whether it’s being called gay, accused of being a thief, if somebody is lying on you and saying something about you that is not true, it just doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t feel good.”
On rumors that he and Eddie Murphy are more than friends:
“They said it about Oprah and Gayle. They’ve said it about Will and Duane Martin. So I guess we fit in that group because we’ve always been tight. Eddie could care less about it. Anyone that knows Eddie knows that Eddie lives Eddie’s life and he’ll look at you straight up and go ‘Hey, keep messing with me and I’ll hit you with my wallet and knock ya out.’”
While we don’t know Johnny’s sexual preference, we will say that something about his response to the rumors seems a bit strange. During his appearance on TV One’s Unsung, he also briefly touched on the rumors, stating that he believed they would go away, but they only got worse.
“I thought: it’s going to go away. It didn’t happen. As a matter of fact, the more you tried to ignore it, the harder it was becoming,” he said.

Zooey Deschanel, Lindsay Lohan, Bruce Willis and Scarlett Johansson… want to know what they all have in common? They all attempted that rocky transition from actor to singer, some conquering this territory with success, but many failing spectacularly. The urge for actors to test their talents in other realms is an understandable one. It makes sense that if you’re celebrated for talents in one area, you surmise that you have what it takes to flourish in other arenas. The aforementioned actors are just a shortlist of individuals who’ve attempted the crossover, read on to find out which African American singers have dabbled into singing.
Howard’s performance as an actor and rapper in the acclaimed film Hustle & Flow earned him an Academy Award nomination and recognition for his…well, flow. He followed the film with the release of his first studio album, Shine Through It –which presents music that is far different than what’s featured in the film. Most often described as experimental, the album features soft-rock, R&B and soul sounds.
Getting a role in any movie is a feat in itself, but there have been several actors who have been given the chance to have two or more roles in one movie.

Some celebrity men use their fame and fortune to keep upgrading their wives, girlfriends, and side pieces so that they look like they’re 20-something and others just date 20-somethings even when they’re old enough to be their grandfather. Check out these celebrity members of the Babysitter’s Club who aren’t afraid to dip into the last legal generation for a date.
Is it just me or do Russell’s women get younger and whiter the older he gets? His curent girlfriend Hana Nitsche is a German model who is 28 years younger than he is. Come on Russ, that’s pushing it.
Being a celebrity has its downside. Everywhere you go, the public and press follow. That is, unless you have your own private island getaway. That is exactly what several stars have. The Huffington Post recently took a look at the private islands of the rich and famous. Among them were Johnny Depp, Celine Dion, as well as Tyler Perry, who owns a private island in White Bay Cay. Eddie Murphy enjoys his getaway on his own Long Cay in The Bahamas.
Can anyone buy a deserted island? If you have the money. According to Investopedia, if you have $12 million lying around, you could by East Sister Rock, a small island off the coast of the Florida Keys, which is currently for sale.
And, you don’t just get the island. There’s a 5,000-square-foot home, two boat docks and a helicopter pad. A little to steep for your pocketbook? Don’t despair. The price depends on the location. “An island in the Caribbean will likely cost you a minimum of $1 million, but an island in Canada, where lakes and coast lines are plentiful, may only cost one tenth of a tropical location,” reports Investopedia.
If you had the money, would you invest in an island?
