John Travolta wishes late Kelly Preston ‘happy birthday’ with throwback wedding photo

John Travolta honored his late wife, Kelly Preston, on what would have been her 58th birthday.

The actor took to Instagram early Tuesday with a message for Preston, who died in July.

“Happy Birthday hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad’s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs. All my love, John,” Travolta captioned the side-by-side pictures.

Travolta’s parents, Salvatore and Helen, appear in a black-and-white photo from their wedding. In his own wedding photo, Travolta sports a black bow tie and is holding hands with Preston, whose head of blonde curls is accessorized with a long white veil.

Amazon picking up its Lord of the Rings series was as transparent a grab as one could imagine for the vacuum left by the wildly successful Game of Thrones.

But Tolkien fans are up in arms following rumours that the billion-dollar show could be rather raunchier than the source material.

Tolkien site TheOneRing has picked up on a number of casting call and crew-member additions to the series, which, like Peter Jackson’s LOTR movies, is being filmed in New Zealand.

Police raid happy couple’s wedding reception packed with 170 guests

A wedding venue has been ordered to close and the manager slapped with a £10,000 fine after hosting a reception with 170 guests.

Grand Park Hall in Luton was raided by police on September 23 following reports of crowds breaching Covid-19 restrictions.

At the time, weddings were allowed just 30 guests – a number that has now been reduced to 15.

The venue is the latest in a string of coronavirus-defying parties to be shut down by police  – including a 120-person strong wedding party in Telford and a 70-person event in Manchester last week.

Those events also saw organisers slapped with £10,000 for breaking the rules.

Ex-Fox News Anchor Shepard Smith Vows to Fight Disinformation With New CNBC Show

Unlike President Donald Trump’s eagerly accommodating attorney general, Bill Barr, Shepard Smith doesn’t believe that New York is a dystopian jurisdiction of “anarchy, violence, and destruction.” That was the claim in last week’s Justice Department memo threatening the cutoff of federal tax dollars to the city.“You know, man, I walk out in Greenwich Village and we have outdoor restaurants everywhere,” CNBC’s newest star told The Daily Beast, in that familiar booming broadcast voice only slightly inflected by his small-town Mississippi roots, as he got ready for Wednesday night’s debut of The News with Shepard Smith, an hour-long show that replaces the 7 p.m. airing of Shark Tank.“And I walked by the Red Lion the other night”—the famed Greenwich Village live music venue—“and there was an amazing singer and guitar player in the doorway and
