Ring those Canadian wedding bells! The ‘Happy Endings’ actress married her NHL star beau in a romantic ceremony on July 6. Congratulations!
Elisha Cuthbert, 30, and her hockey-playing boyfriend Dion Phaneuf, 28, made it official on July 6, tying the knot at an intimate ceremony held at St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Elisha Cuthbert & Dion Phaneuf Get Married
After saying their vows at the church, Elisha and Dion, who is a defenseman and captain for the Toronto Maple Leafs, then headed to his large waterfront estate, according to Us Weekly.
Elisha dished about the locale of her wedding celebration in a 2008 interview, and said it was the perfect place for the big day. “It's such a quiet place that we can be ourselves and not get bothered too much and have a real summer away from the hustle and bustle of our lives,” the Happy Endings star told the Summerside Journal Pioneer.
The intimate, Prince Edward Island waterfront location does sound incredible — the right place for a cute Canadian couple like Elisha and Dion.
Elisha Cuthbert & Dion Phaneuf’s ‘Formal’ Wedding
A source close to Elisha also revealed that the wedding was going to be a formal affair, according to Us. “The wedding will be in tents, and if it’s not raining, the tents will be open,” the insider revealed. “There will be fireworks while guests are eating and food trucks at midnight, courtesy of the in-laws.”
Food trucks at midnight? Wow, we wish we were invited!
Elisha and Dion have been dating since 2008. They got engaged in September 2012. And actually, they’re not the only Canadian couple to tie the knot this week – Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger said “I do” on July 1.
We cannot even imagine. Just moments after the Boeing 777 they were on crashed on the runway in San Francisco, Calif., passengers tweeted their immediate, stunned reactions, possibly shocked they were still alive.
An Asiana Airplanes jet carrying 307 people slammed to the ground at San Francisco International Airport on July 6, losing its tail and bursting into flames. The horrifying accident has reportedly killed at least two people and injured 61 more, according to KTVU, but there were also crash survivors who recounted their experience just seconds after evacuating the burning airplane.
Passenger Tweets About ‘Surreal’ Plane Crash
“I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I’m ok. Surreal,” David Eun, a Samsung executive, tweeted. He also posted a shocking photo of the grounded Boeing 777 with smoke billowing out of it and survivors fleeing the scene.
He continued to update his followers: “Fire and rescue people all over the place. They’re evacuating the injured. Haven’t felt this way since 9/11,” he said, and also added, “At Terminal now. Very grateful I’m ok. Thanks for all your best wishes but please do not call me right now. Will keep everyone posted.” Wow — how terrifying.
San Francisco Plane Crash: ‘My Dad Is Safe’
Eunice Rah, though not on the airplane, received text message updates from her father, who was one of the passengers on the flight. “My dad is safe, texted me this of the 777 crash. Ppl being checked for injuries at terminal,” she tweeted. Eunice also tweeted a pair of astonishing photographs that her father sent her of the plane up in smoke.
And there was one plane passenger who got an up close look at the crash — although Marilyn McCullough was a passenger of another plane on the runway at San Francisco International. Along with a picture taken from her small airplane window, she tweeted, “#sfo #planecrash #delays.”
This crash is such an awful tragedy and our thoughts are with the families of those who were killed and injured, as well as those who helped with the rescue and evacuation missions. But it is amazing that in this Twitter age, you can be crashing on a plane one minute, and tweeting a picture out of it the next.

How scary. A Boeing 777 airplane crashed violently to the runway at San Francisco International Airport on July 6, a tragic accident that reportedly killed two people and injured 61 more. As information continues to come in on the cause of this crash, browse through our gallery of the astonishing, horrifying photos from the crash landing.
A sunny day in San Francisco, Calif. turned terrifying on July 6, when an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 passenger plane coming from Seoul, South Korea crashed on the runway at San Francisco International Airport, causing a fierce fire, significant aircraft damage, and reportedly the deaths of two people, and injuries of 61 more.
Plane Crashes In San Francisco: Two Dead, 61 Injured
The huge passenger jet — which was carrying 291 passengers and 16 staff members, according to CNN — crash landed for reasons still unknown, a violent collision that tore the tail of the plane clear off. The jet, which became engulfed in flames soon after crashing, spun 360 degrees before skidding to a stop on the runway. At least two people died from the crash, while 61 people were injured. The San Francisco and San Mateo County Fire Departments reportedly rushed those injured to local hospitals, according to KTVU.
The pictures of the terrifying passenger jet crash are downright shocking, showing enormous plumes of black smoke that could be seen for miles, and in other photos, the ceiling of the Boeing 777 burned completely off.
There are also closeup pictures taken by survivors from the crash, fresh off evacuating the plane. The gigantic jet sits on its belly just off the runway, spewing smoke and fire as people can be seen fleeing the crash site.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the passengers who were killed and injured, and to all of those involved in the accident and the rescue efforts.

“It’s a thigh high and sweats kind of day,” Rihanna wrote along with the first picture of her flashy outfit — a black and white, futuristic-looking ensemble with dizzying lines and shapes that was also cut to show all of the Unapologetic singer’s midriff.
But it showed even more than that! In subsequent pictures, taken from below Rihanna’s waist, the singer gave the world a look up the outfit, and a few clear shots of her underboob. “Denmark I hate to leave you!” Rihanna captioned one of the photos. We’re sure Denmark — at least the male population — is also sad to see her go.
Rihanna: Sending Mixed Messages To Chris Brown?
We hope that Chris Brownisn’t paying too much attention to Rihanna’s Instagram for a few reasons! Not only must it hurt to see your ex-girlfriend flaunting underboob on Instagram, but RiRi has seemingly also been using the social network to diss Chris.
On July 4, after Chris tweeted that Rihanna would be appearing on his upcoming album, X, Rihanna lashed out via Instagram, posting a photo with the message, “Bitch you will die, be born again, die again and be born again before I do a song with you bitch.” The photo also had the caption, “Phuck O.utta H.ere B.itch!!!”
Wow! Taking in Rihanna’s mix of raciness and aggression makes our heads spin — we can only imagine how it makes Chris feel. But that’s just RiRi’s style – it’s her world and we’re just living in it.
What do you think of Rihanna’s sexy underboob pics, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
How terrible! On July 6 a jet believed to be carrying hundreds of passengers crash landed at an airport in San Francisco, Calif.
It was a violent sight at San Francisco International airport on July 6, as an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 passenger plane coming from Seoul, South Korea crashed on the runway, causing a ghastly fire and both of the plane’s wings to be ripped off.
Boeing 777 Crash Lands In San Francisco
The aircraft is believed to be carrying hundreds of passengers — it’s maximum capacity is 450 — but the extent of injuries on the plane are still unknown.
Other people waiting for their flights at San Francisco International became eyewitnesses to this horrifying event, as the plane spun violently across the runway. A huge cloud of black smoke could be seen for miles from the crash site.
“I just saw a plane crash start to finish. I can’t stop crying, I can’t believe this,” onlooker Danielle Wells tweeted. Other eyewitnesses reported that the plane’s tail appeared to tear off and that the entire plane flipped upside down before skidding to a stop. The ceiling of the plane was burnt completely off, according to CNN. Rescue workers hurried to the burning plane and passengers were seen evacuating the aircraft via inflatable slides.
There allegedly were no precautions made for a crash landing, according to CNN, meaning that an issue must have arisen just moments before landing.
The plane reportedly left South Korea 12 hours prior to the accident, and was due to land at 9:45 AM PT.
Again, there is no word yet if any passengers sustained injuries, but stay tuned to HollywoodLife.com for more on this developing story. Our thoughts are with all those involved, as well as their friends and family.

Nori’s first day out! North learned the true meaning of independence on Independence Day when Kim and Kanye took their little girl out of hiding for a Fourth of July celebration.
A new report claims that it was a Fourth of July to remember for the new family as Kim Kardashianand Kanye Westtook North Westout to celebrate the holiday with the rest of the family.
North West’s Fourth Of July Playdate
Kim and Kanye took Nori out of the house on July 4 for the first time since she was brought home from the hospital on June 21, according to Us Weekly.
The adorable new family reportedly headed out to Bruce Jenner’sman cave in Malibu, Calif., where the whole family was celebrating the holiday together. It was a beautiful beach day for the Kardashian-Jenner clan, as Kendalland Kylie Jennerwere both photographed frolicking next to the Pacific Ocean in patriotic bikinis.
Kim and Kanye were nowhere to be seen out on the beach though, likely keeping their newborn out of the hot sun (and away from the cameras).
The Independence Day trip reportedly was not Nori’s first playdate: “Kim has taken North on a few play-dates, but she can’t do it with lots of people since she’s still so small,” a source explained to Us.
Kim Kardashian Loves Being At Home With Baby North West
Kim has loved spending time away from the spotlight, at home with just North and Kanye, a source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.comexclusively. “Yeah, she is [happy to be at home], and Kanye couldn’t be happier to be a new dad,” the source said.
It’s adorable that Kimye is embracing parenthood with such vigor, and it’s also nice to see that they were able to get some fresh air and spend the summer holiday with the rest of the family. We’re sure North will grow to love those huge, frequent family get-togethers. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
No matter what Kim does, she just can’t avoid criticism. The new mom was slighted yet again in possibly the most public way yet on July 5. So what do you think — is the diss crossing the line?
Part of being Kim Kardashianis being able to handle criticism and disses. She was after all only married for 72 days, a fact that makes her an easy target. That quick marriage to Kris Humphrieswas the subject of the most recent — and most public — dig at Kim K.
Construction Company Disses Kim Kardashian’s Marriage
A Toronto, Canada construction company probably thought they were pretty clever with their latest ad, which was put up on July 5. “Construction set to finish faster than a Kim Kardashian marriage,” the advertisement reads. Ouch!
The ad was reportedly created by the comedy troupe, Second City, according to TMZ, and will remain in place until construction on Bay Adelaide Centre is completed. Work reportedly won’t be finished until 2015, so it’ll actually take way longer than Kim’s 72-day marriage.
Kim Kardashian: No Stranger To Disses
This certainly isn’t the first time Kim — and especially her marriage — have been the butt of a joke, but we have to ask, as Kim transitions to motherhood and possibly takes a step back from the spotlight, are disses like this too much?
The last time Kim was criticized heavily was for her maternity fashion, and the new mom was very distressed at the time. “People can be so mean,” Kim told Us Weekly. “It’s not cool and it’s not fair.”
This advertisement is admittedly much more lighthearted than the critics who called a pregnant Kim fat, and we think even Kim could admit that it is a bit funny. She hasn’t gotten to where she is by sweating all the haters — we’re sure she’s focused on baby North Westand that this ad will barely even be a blip on the radar.
But what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is the ad mean or funny? Let us know!
What a horrible tragedy. On July 6, a freight train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded in a small Canadian town near the United states border, igniting the entire town in fire and endangering countless lives.
The town of Lac-Megantic, a town in Quebec, Canada about 150 miles from Maine, is engulfed in flames on July 6. It has been wiped out after a train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded. As of now, 30 buildings have been destroyed and 60 people are believed to be missing and possibly dead.
Train Derails & Explodes In Small Canadian Town — 60 Missing
Other parts of the town were evacuated in the early morning of July 6 after the train derailed at about 1 AM, causing fireballs to dangerously shoot in the sky. The flames spread to nearby homes and the sky was coated in a thick black smoke.
Thoughts are now turned to the 60 people who are believed to be missing closest to the explosion site. So far, rescue teams have been unable to get close to the damage because of the force of the explosion.
It is not yet known if anyone died from the accident — no one was on the freight train, which was being driven on autopilot, the Hamilton Spectator reports — but it is a very real possibility. On such a nice summer evening, the town was still bustling and bars were still full when the train crashed.
“We do fear that there are going to be casualties,” Sergeant Gregory Gomez del Prado of the Quebec Police told CTV News.
Lac-Megantic Train Explosion: ‘It’s Terrible’
Lac-Megantic is a small lakeside town that has about 6,000 residents. It’s such an awful accident, with such a large impact especially considering the town’s small size. Over 100 firefighters are still working to stop the fire from spreading in the town, according to CBC.
“It’s terrible,” resident Claude Bedard said. “We’ve never seen anything like it. The Metro store, Dollarama, everything that was there is gone.”
A Facebook page has already been set up to help family and friends check on their loved ones.
What a scary, terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the residents of Lac-Megantic, and all those police officers and firefighters who have rushed to the scene to help.

This is an Independence Day party we wish we were invited to! On the Fourth of July, T-Swift had a bunch of friends over to her Rhode Island estate to celebrate America’s birthday — and she even got a little frisky with a sexy guy!
For some reason, we can’t think of anything more American than Taylor Swiftpartying with her friends at her Rhode Island mansion on the Fourth of July. It just seems so classic. T-Swift let everyone in on her Independence Day party — all the sexy bikinis, body paint, and shirtless hunks — when she posted a ton of pics to her blog on July 5.
Taylor Swift’s Fourth Of July Celebration
Taylor wrote a nice little introduction before unveiling the pictures of her and her beautiful friends enjoying the Fourth:
Happy belated 4th of July. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. This time around, my touring family joined me at the beach and I wanted to show you some of the pictures because you’re the reason we all get to be on tour together. You’ve seen us all in our show costumes on the Red Tour.. Here’s what we all look like in RED, white, and blue:)
Judging from the pictures, it looked like an amazing party! The full day of festivities included sunbathing, playing pool, getting patriotic with a little body paint, and even having a treasure hunt.
Taylor Swift Gets Close To A Shirtless Hunk In Her Skimpy Bikini
But we’re just as intrigued to see Taylor in her darling red and white, high-waisted bikini that she paired appropriately with a blue skirt. She again proved that she’s the essence of the classic, sexy look.
She looked especially tantalizing “practicing choreography” with one of her shirtless guy friends! T-Swift wrapped her leg around her friend, Scott, and gazed into his eyes while holding up an American flag for a totally sexy pose. The picture’s hotter than a barbecue pit.
These two look like a great match — maybe Taylor’s next romance is on the horizon?
This is definitely the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July. What do you think of Taylor’s whirlwind celebration, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
RiRi posted some seriously harsh words on Twitter and Instagram on July 4. Did Chris say something to upset her?
After waffling on whether to include the song he recorded with Rihanna on his upcoming album or not, Chris Brown tweeted on July 4 that RiRi would in fact be featured on X. Wrong move, CB — the tweet seems to have really set Rihanna off!
Rihanna Lashes Out At Chris Brown On Twitter
As per usual, Rihanna took to Twitter and Instagram to vent. And though she doesn’t refer to Chris by name, her messages seem like a direct response to Chris’ confirmation tweet that X would feature her.
First, Rihanna tweeted, “Phuck O.utta H.ere B.itch!!!” along with a link to an Instagram photo, which had an even angrier message: “Bitch you will die, be born again, die again and be born again before I do a song with you bitch.”
And here’s another, not-so-subtle hint that she was directing her harsh words at Chris. You may have noticed the odd punctuation on Rihanna’s tweet — well, Chris’ entourage is known as O.H.B., so there are no coincidences here.
Rihanna: Still Fighting With Chris Brown?
Rihanna’s vehement reaction is quite surprising — just days ago on July 3 a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.comexclusively that Rihanna had respect for Chris, but was trying to keep her mind off of him. “She wishes him well, but she doesn’t want to see anything he’s doing,” the source said.
Maybe she’s trying to avoid Chris because he stirs up such strong emotions in her. Her angry Twitter and Instagram posts seem to be definite proof that she’s harboring anger towards her ex. And though Chris seems past his drama with RiRi, apparently the feelings are not mutual.
Rihanna surely doesn’t beat around the bush though — if she’s got a problem with you, you’re going to hear about it! What do you think about her harsh messages, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
After Justin and Selena reunited for a romantic Fourth of July, the ‘Boyfriend’ singer obviously has a lot to be happy about! Was he fondly reminiscing about his night with Selena on Twitter?
It’s been a whirlwind holiday weekend for Justin Bieberand Selena Gomez. After it looked like these two were finally done with each other, they reunited on Independence Day, providing more fireworks than the “Macy’s Fourth Of July Spectacular.” Justin clearly enjoyed his time with his on-again, off-again girl, as he took to Twitter to recount how amazing the night was.
Justin Bieber Has A ‘Great Night’ With Selena Gomez
“Great night,” Justin tweeted on July 4. Sometimes, a short tweet speaks a thousand words.
Though the Biebs saw other girls after he and Selena split, his heart clearly belongs to her, which explains why he was pretty much gloating after spending the night with his ex on the Fourth of July.
HollywoodLife.combroke the news about the shocking reunion, noticing Jelena embracing in the background of a video posted to Instagram by Jas Prince, Christina Milian’s fiance. Justin’s BFF Alfredo Flores also posted a video with Selena, and Lil’ Twist posted two pictures — one with Justin and one with Selena — adding more proof that the former couple reunited for the Fourth.
Justin Bieber: Celebrating Reunion With Selena Gomez?
Justin has reveled in such shocking reunions before — remember that cuddle pic back in April? — and he was unable to contain his excitement yet again on July 5, posting a photo of himself and Selena with the caption, “#heartbreaker.”
The caption is a bit cryptic, perhaps suggesting that Selena gave Justin a taste on July 4 and now he only wants more. On the other hand, the Biebs may have just been confirming his reunion with Selena while also promoting his upcoming single, “Heartbreaker.”
What we do know is that Justin really loved spending time with Selena on Independence Day — it was a “great night.” What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
