Longoria & Parker Marry
LATEST: Eva Longoria
and Tony Parker
have officially tied the knot at a civil ceremony on Friday.
The Desperate Housewives
star turned up at a city hall in Paris, France, in a limousine wearing a short pink Chanel dress with striped black and white straps
- while her new husband arrived in a mini van wearing a dark grey suit.
Couples who marry in France must take their vows at a city hall - even if they are planning to have a church wedding as well. The ceremony was officiated by Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe.
The newly-married pair are planning a second wedding on Saturday - with the Saint-Germain-l'Auxerroix Church in Paris the likely location.
Previously reported: Eva Longoria
and Tony Parker
's plans for a private wedding ceremony on Saturday have been dashed - thanks to a church date book. Visitors to the Saint-Germain-l'Auxerroix church in Paris, the rumored site of the ceremony, have been able to view the date book - and Saturday has been mysteriously blocked out. The church, which is located near the Louvre Museum, once served the French royal family. Paris Match magazine claims the couple is still trying to avoid the paparazzi by using the church's back entrance, and Longoria plans to don her designer wedding gown once inside. The civil ceremony is rumored to take place on Friday at Paris' City Hall. Meanwhile, basketball star Parker reportedly surprised his wife-to-be on Tuesday when he arranged a romantic trip for the two of them to France's Mont Saint-Michel medieval citadel - the country's third most visited attraction. The couple reportedly took a helicopter from Paris to Normandy, where they dined at romantic restaurant La MMre Poularde. A waitress tells People magazine, "They just turned up without a reservation. They were very elegant, very beautiful... They seem so very much in love." The couple flew back to Paris the following morning and spent Wednesday partying with family and friends at Disneyland Paris.

Richie has so far refused to confirm or deny a series of recent pregnancy reports, prompted by pictures of the skinny star with a bloated belly.

Jackson Looking To Buy Maryland Holiday Home
is house-hunting for a holiday home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The singer already has a rented home in Las Vegas and still owns his abandoned Neverland Ranch in California, despite false rumors he is selling the huge estate. Jackson's spokeswoman Raymone Bain has confirmed reports the pop star had been spotted looking at waterfront mansions in Maryland last month. Bain said Jackson spent "about 24 hours" on the peninsula, but has yet to make a purchase. Bain told the Washington Post that Jackson wants an East Coast base because "the majority of his advisers and attorneys are on the East Coast. He's always admired the properties on the East Coast because they have a lot of land. Neverland has 3,000 acres - he likes privacy. You can't find as many properties like that on the West Coast."

Actor/director Gary Oldman
denies he burst into tears after watching his film Nil By Mouth
at this year's Cannes Film Festival. It was rumored the Batman Begins
actor broke down in tears after watching the movie he penned debut at the French festival in 1997 - but Oldman denies he was emotional. He tells Empire magazine, "Someone mentioned that to me recently, the press conference at Cannes and me being in tears. But, honestly, apart from a (British) journalist saying I was in tears and crying on his shoulder, I don't really remember that." Oldman also denies speculation the film, which is based on an abusive father, is autobiographical. He adds, "Honestly, people wanted this film to be more about me than it really was. It is a little but autobiographical but that's it - and yet people see it as that was my dad on screen and that was my situation. So no matter what I say, people think that it's all about me. It's actually mostly fiction."
