compiled from staff, wire and entertainment news



*Remember we told you a few days ago that Actor Brian Austin Green and Actress Megan Fox were engaged?

Well, apparently they don’t like long engagements!

Nobody thought that Megan Fox would ever get married. But she has left the single life for the married one.

The Transformers star secretly and quietly married longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, in a ceremony late last week in Hawaii.

The couple met on the set of the sitcom Hope & Faith.

The marriage is the first for both. Green has an 8-year-old son with actress Vanessa Marcil formerly of General Hospital, Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place.

Green is 36 and Fox is 24. They had a fairly large wedding but there was alot of security to keep fans and the media away if they somehow found the location out. All guests were told not to say anything about the time, place, date or location upon accepting their invitation.

Green is best known for his role as David Silver on the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210.

He and Fox are said to be spending their honeymoon at the Four Seasons Hualalai Hotel where the wedding took place.

*American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox made two stops on Monday at Toledo area radio stations to promote the “American Idols Live!” tour.

The visit by the Elliston, Ohio native, who is 24-years-old, was her first trip home since her homecoming tour of Toledo and Ottawa County in early May; and since deadly tornadoes ripped through the area this month and devastated parts of southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio, including near her father’s home.

Bowersox said she hopes to perform at a benefit concert for victims of the tornadoes in the fall after the American Idol tour wraps up in September.

The tour will make a stop July 27 in Columbus for a concert at Nationwide Arena.
