George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin’s Wedding Will Be In ‘Vogue’

George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin's Wedding Will Be In 'Vogue'

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have already secured their marriage license, so we know that they are going to be married very soon. Apparently, George and Amal have invited “Vogue” Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour to the celebrations and she will be covering the nuptials for a spread in the fashion bible.

Anna Wintour will be one of the select guests invited to the nuptials of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin in Italy next month. Sources said the Vogue editor-in-chief will be attending the Clooney wedding, even though it is expected to take place during the throes of the European fashion shows in late September.

We’re also told the Clooney/Alamuddin wedding will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Condé Nast fashion bible. “She wouldn’t go there and not cover it,” our source tells us.

Alamuddin, we’re told, is expected to wear a gown designed by Wintour’s close friend Oscar de la Renta. A source explained that not only would Wintour want to feature the beautiful Lebanese lawyer in her wedding gown, “she and Oscar are such good friends and [she’d] want to give him some attention.”

On Thursday, WWD reported the groom will wear Armani to get hitched, and that an entire team of designers flew to Clooney’s home in Laglio, Italy, to do fittings with the star and male attendants in his wedding party.

Clooney and Alamuddin are said to be having a small and intimate ceremony, but will have several parties before and after. “They’re going to have top security, but include a really small group. Very intimate, and mostly family,” our source said.

Who else thinks that Amal shouldn’t wear Oscar de la Renta? It just doesn’t seem like her type of wedding dress….it doesn’t appear to fit in with whatever style she is trying to achieve in her every day life. What do you think?

George Clooney Cast in ‘Money Monster’

George Clooney rejects the Daily Mail's apology

In happy news, George Clooney and his future wife, Amal Alamuddin will not be going hungry any time soon- because she is a successful lawyer, and he keeps getting roles in movies.  The latest film he has been tapped for is Money Monster – which is to be directed by the fabulous Miss Jodie Foster.  

Money Monster is a thriller about a talk show host who gets taken hostage on-air by a disgruntled viewer who loses all of his money on a bad investment tip.  The film is expected to commence filming in 2015.

This will be Foster’s fourth time directing a movie, and her first time directing Clooney.  She most recently directed an episode of the Netflix original series House of Cards, and has directed two episodes of Orange is the New Black, and even received an Emmy nod for her episode last season.

Clooney will be seen next in Tomorrowland a sci-fi film due out next Spring that also stars Judy Greer, Hugh Laurie, and Kathryn Hahn.

George Clooney rejects the Daily Mail’s apology

George Clooney rejects the Daily Mail's apology

In a nutshell, the “Daily Mail” ticked off George Clooney by reporting that his soon-to-be mother-in-law Baria Alamuddin didn’t approve of her daughter’s wedding to a non Druze. They stated in their report that religious people in that particular sect often like to kill the bride after a non-Druze wedding.

Naturally, George took offense and wrote his fury in an op-ed for “USA Today”. He called their report irresponsible and said that it was in no way based on fact.

The British tabloid has since issued an apology to George, plainly stating that their source claimed to be legitimate. But, he isn’t taking their apology whatsoever and is calling them out for being liars. Here’s his statement:

There is one constant when a person or company is caught doing something wrong. The coverup is always worse.

In this case, the Daily Mail has printed an apology for insinuating religious tensions where there are none. In the apology, managing editor Charles Garside claims that the article was “not a fabrication,” but “based the story on conversations with senior members of the Lebanese community.”

The problem is that none of that is true. The original story never cites that source, but instead goes out of its way to insist on four different occasions that “a family friend” spoke directly to the Mail. A ” family friend” was the source. So either they were lying originally or they’re lying now.

Furthermore, they knew ahead of time that they were lying. In an article dated April 28, 2014, reporter Richard Spillett writes in the Mail that “Ramzi, (Amal’s father), married outside the Druze faith,” and a family friend said that “Baria, (Amal’s mom), is not Druze.” The Mail knew the story in question was false and printed it anyway.

What separates this from all of the ridiculous things the Mail makes up is that now, by their own admission, it can be proved to be a lie. In fact, a premeditated lie.

So I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid.

One that makes up its facts to the detriment of its readers and to all the publications that blindly reprint them.

Get ‘em George!

George Clooney slams reports of mother-in-law wedding squabble

George Clooney slams reports of mother-in-law wedding squabble

Yesterday, the news of Baria Alamuddin’s disapproval of her daughter’s wedding to George Clooney spread like wildfire. The reports from the “Daily Mail” stated that Baria wanted Amal to marry a Druze man and joked that in the case of some Druze marrying outside of their sect of the religion, some brides were killed.

George doesn’t answer to every little piece of gossip that makes its way online about his personal life, but when it comes to matters such as these, he’s taking a stand. George wrote a piece for “USA Today” about the irresponsible reporting done by the folks at the “Daily Mail”. You can read his statement in full below:

I want to speak to the irresponsibility of Monday’s Daily Mail report. I seldom respond to tabloids, unless it involves someone else and their safety or well being. The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story about my fiancée’s mother opposing our marriage for religious reasons. It says Amal’s mother has been telling “half of Beirut” that she’s against the wedding. It says they joke about traditions in the Druze religion that end up with the death of the bride.

Let me repeat that: the death of the bride.

First of all, none of the story is factually true. Amal’s mother is not Druze. She has not been to Beirut since Amal and I have been dating, and she is in no way against the marriage — but none of that is the issue. I’m, of course, used to the Daily Mail making up stories — they do it several times a week — and I don’t care. If they fabricate stories of Amal being pregnant, or that the marriage will take place on the set of Downton Abbey, or that I’m running for office, or any number of idiotic stories that they sit at their computers and invent, I don’t care.

But this lie involves larger issues. The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal.

I’m the son of a newsman; I accept the idea that freedom of speech can be an inconvenience to my private life from time to time, but this story, like so many others, is picked up by hundreds of other outlets citing the Daily Mail as their source, including, New York Daily News, Gulf News, Emirates 24/7 and so on.

The Daily Mail, more than any other organization that calls itself news, has proved time and time again that facts make no difference in the articles they make up. And when they put my family and my friends in harm’s way, they cross far beyond just a laughable tabloid and into the arena of inciting violence.

They must be so very proud.
