It’s Almost Here: Pre-Royal Wedding Preparation

So close, you can almost taste it. The most anticipated event this year, the royal wedding, is now just days away. Kate Middleton and Prince William will join hands in marriage Friday.

We will see then if practice makes perfect, as the wedding rehearsal took place Wednesday morning.

"It was a dry run," Sherelle Newton stated, who was on location this morning. "Everyone was figuring out where they should be on Friday. But they were careful to make sure the crowds would be able to see Kate."

We hear from PEOPLE Middleton was guarded by thousands of military personnel.

"There were hundreds and hundreds of mounted military, all on horseback," another onlooker Janelle Howell confirmed. "And then the cars and coaches came. Dozens of them. And people got out of each car and entered the church, just like the guests will. It was quite the spectacle."

CNN  reports the bride-to-be will stay overnight in the Goring Hotel prior to the wedding. Her and her father will leave Friday morning at 10:51 am.

The royal wedding is expected to make $2 billion through digital audience.

As a celebrity gossip lover, I highly anticipate this wedding. It has been talked about for quite some time, so I can’t wait to see how the whole thing goes. I don’t know about anyone else, but I expect to see the most elaborate wedding and dress that I ever see in my lifetime.

Full wedding coverage will be available next week!

Jersey Shore: GTL shutdown?

Don’t fist pump too hard, Jersey Shore fans. This season may not be what you’re expecting.
We hear from TMZ  the show will take place in Florence because "it's young, walkable, fashionable, and beautiful in springtime."
But officials may have something to say about it.
A report from The New York Post  confirms Matteo Renzi, Florence’s mayor, laid down a few production rules.
-No filming in bars and clubs that serve alcohol
-No filming of the cast drinking in public.
-Florence will not be promoted as a drinking town.
-No filming in Florence’s historic buildings. With that said, Renzi said that he “could not ban them from using the city as a set.”
-”The show should be filmed in a manner to promote Italy (not Americans visiting Italy) and feature it’s culture and good food.”

Exclusive: Michael and Lindsay Reunite in the Actress' Venice Apartment

It’s never a dull moment for the Lohan family, which they even further proved this weekend.
Michael Lohan showed up at Lindsay’s apartment in Venice, CA Sunday, not an ordinary occurrence for them. At first the troubled star hid in a closet until he left, then had a fast change of heart and let him in.
There is no report on why Lindsay changed her mind-I’m not too sure I understand it, either.
Lohan and his family have not been on speaking terms since the estrangement.

The former Celebrity Rehab patient confirmed to RadarOnline he has in fact been spending time with estranged daughter.
“I am with my daughter,” he stated in a report Monday.
Sources told TMZ the actress was sitting home this morning enjoying bagels and relaxing with her father.
Not going to lie, this shocked me. Her mother and siblings have all recently changed her last name from “Lohan” back to her mother’s maiden name, and the troubled star has said she wants to only go by Lindsay.
Michael has his own problems, just like his daughter. Recently he has been accused of abusing his former girlfriend, who wanted to get a restraining order.

At the end of it all, I am happy for them. Children should look up to their parents and confide in them for love and support when needed. Them not speaking could have a lot to do with Lindsay’s off the wall, spontaneous behavior.
Perhaps a little father-daughter time can set aside their differences?

‘Harry Potter’ series goes e-Book?

Watch out, Oprah. JK Rowling is re-thinking e-Books, an idea she once rejected for her Harry Potter series. The opportunity could skyrocket her billion dollar net worth, making her the second wealthiest woman in entertainment.
"The e-book format is now something that is being actively considered," Rowling’s agent Neil Blair confirmed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the past she’s been skeptical, yet times are changing. Devices such as Kindle and iPad are becoming more popular in usage, leaving her the potential to make $100 million more from the e-books.
“I wouldn't be too surprised if the rights for the e-books are sold for $100 million,” BookBrunch editor Liz Thomson stated. “Experts believe the move could revolutionize the world of electronic publishing, triggering rocketing sales of e-book readers such as the Kindle and the iPad.”
Harry Potter has sold roughly 450 million copies. Stirling University director of international publishing and communications Claire Squires told The Christian Science Monitor, “It is akin to the Beatles allowing their music to be launched on iTunes.” reports Rowling made 18 times as many electronic sales within the last year as she did in 2009.
