There’s an old joke that asks, “What did the boy from the country do with his first one-night stand?” The answer: He married her. Maybe he was in Hollywood. Many celebrity marriages there don’t seem to last much longer than a one-night stand. Why do people get married one day and sometimes turn around and get divorced the next? In Hollywood, celebrity marriages, for the most part, are short, cheap and simple. Getting married in Tinsel Town is oftentimes more a convenient legal device related to tax and publicity than a romantic ritual. Bruce Provda, a high-profile NYC divorce attorney, highlights some of the most infamous celebrity divorces (and gives us all the juicy details).
Celebrities and city officials turned out for the opening of Beverly Hills' first full-service dental practice yesterday.

This upscale location, opened by new owner Dr. Aamir Wahab, boasts state-of-the-art facilities in a posh environment enjoyed by celebrity clients the likes of Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster (of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). This new branch joins a second Unforgettable Smile location located on Wilshire and La Cienega.
