Celebrity Scoop – 12/27/2018


Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are, indeed, officially wed.

The couple tied the knot over the weekend in a small ceremony. Cyrus’ mom, Tish Cyrus, and dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, were in attendance. Photos from her ceremony surfaced on social media Monday.

Cyrus confirmed the news Wednesday in a series of Instagram posts, including a picture of the couple embracing during the ceremony with the caption “10 years later…”.

The couple first met on the set of The Last Song in 2009 and began dating and even got engaged in 2012. But they called off their engagement the following year and stayed broken up for three more years.

The stars were spotted hanging out again in 2015, and in 2016, during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cyrus confirmed that she and Hemsworth were not only back together but engaged.

They had been living together at their Malibu home, which they lost in the California fires last month. Following the devastating incident, the couple donated $500,000 to The Malibu Foundation – and   moved their wedding to their home in Franklin, Tennessee.

“They had planned to get married in Malibu over the holidays when all of their families were together. After their Malibu house didn’t make the fire, they have been living at Miley’s Tennessee house,” a source told People magazine.

Mariah Carey made a Sacramento-area family’s 2018 Christmas one they will never forget.

The singer, nicknamed “The Queen of Christmas” due to her hit holiday songs, called Jason Evart on FaceTime Sunday night to have a chat with him after his holiday display outside his suburban home caught her attention. The longtime fan projected her Christmas music videos on a screen for his entire neighborhood to enjoy, and Mariah was impressed.

“You guys are so festive, and I don’t believe it, so I had to call you and say Merry Christmas,” she told Evart and his mother from her vacation home in Aspen, Colorado, where she was outside playing in the snow during the video call. “Thank you for making me a part of your Christmas, and you being a part of mine.”

The call was only three minutes, but still very meaningful to Evart. “It really means a lot to me that she actually contacted me and said merry Christmas,” he said. “From the queen of Christmas herself!”

Meanwhile, someone has edited multiple episodes of Friends to make it seem as though Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are singing Mariah’s Christmas smash, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”

While some holiday episodes are used to source words like “Santa Claus” and “Christmas Day,” they even managed to find enough words to piece together the phrase, “I just want you for my own/more than you could ever know/make my wish come true.” They’ve even got the “Oooh, baby” in there.
