So many celebrity marriages this year! Jimmy Kimmel, Curtis Stone , NeNe Leakes, and now we discover "Superman Returns" and "Blue Crush" actress and all-around babe, Kate Bosworth recently tied the knot at The Ranch at Rock Creek, an all-inclusive "luxury dude ranch and glamping resort" in Philipsburg, Montana.
She and groom, director Michael Polish held their outdoor, afternoon ceremony on August 31st on the dude ranches 6,600 scenic acres of private land with 50 of their closest friends as guests. According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the couple exchanged self-written vows on a bluff set against hills, mountains and wildflowers.
After we dished on what Donald Trump had to say about his upcoming Trump International Hotel in Washington DC, we started thinking about all the other things The Donald has said about his hotels (which btw, are largely run by his daughter, Ivanka and his sons Donald Jr. and Eric.) And as you can imagine, there are a lot of choice quotes. Surprisingly, they aren't all about being "the biggest" or "the bestest.
So here are 10 Ballsy Things Donald Trump Has Said About His Hotels (and randomly, Christina Aguilera):
1. The Donald to his eight-months pregnant daughter Ivanka on Tuesday about working on the new Trump Washington DC hotel:
"You better do a good job or you're fired!"
2. At the same event, The Donald said the new hotel would be:
"one of the finest hotels anywhere in the world."
3. The Donald in a press release last week about The BLT Prime restaurant coming to the Trump Miami and the overall renovation of the resort:
"It’s going to be better than ever.”
"It’s going to be better than ever.”
We had high hopes when rapper DMX appeared on "Fix My Life" a show from Oprah Winfrey's OWN network. After all, if anyone could get 42-year old Ruff Ryder Earl Simmons to calm the hell down from a self-professed life of promiscuity and substance abuse, than super-healer Iyanla Vanzant could do it. Well, DMX was having none of it, ended up cussing Vanzant out. Intervention? #fail.
So, we're not surprised to see this video from TMZ showing Dark Man X stripping off his boxer shorts, then running around in the nude (and court-ordered house-arrest ankle bracelet) around a Detroit hotel hallway.
But, the question is, did DMX get charged with indecent exposure from the video below?
"Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end," so said Brian Flanagan in the greatest movie of all time. And for Jennifer Aniston, if this recent gossip report is to be believed, her love affair with the Sunset Tower Hotel has come to a horrific conclusion.
The Daily Mail reports that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie not only spent a night at Jen's fave Hollywood hotel, but they slept in the same room as hers! Well, the same room that she always stays in. Not like, the same room at the same time.
The star couple slipped unnoticed into the glamorous Sunset Tower hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday night and checked into suite 1502 - the same room where Brad's ex-wife Jennifer likes to stay.
Even more scandalous is that Angelina specifically requested this room because she knew that Jen stays in it all the time.
On August 27, Angelina made a reservation for suite 1502, shelling out $2500 for the penthouse room with a large patio that wraps around much of the building. Later in the afternoon, the couple arrived and were escorted to the service entrance and whisked up to the penthouse - not leaving their room until 11am on Wednesday morning. They even shared an intimate dinner from room service on the penthouse balcony, with Los Angeles sprawled out below them.
You know Tiger Woods is getting up there in age when he's blaming bad play Wednesday at the back nine in The Barclays tournament at New Jersey' Liberty National Golf Course on account of a stiff neck and back.
How did he get these "injuries"? No, ex-wife Elin Nordegren didn't come at him with a nine iron again. Instead, Woods blames his problems on his "too soft" hotel bed .
"My neck and back are a little bit stiff. It was stiff this morning after a soft bed and just one of those things, sleeping in hotels." he said. "I didn't want to push it, so just took it easy and chipped and putted."
Hmm. If this isn't a Goldilocks moment, we don't know what is. Woods, who is looked to be a surefire winner in this pro-am tournament was asked if he was getting a new bed in time for the FedEx Cup Playoffs on Thursday. He answered with a smile, "What do you think? We'll have something." But will it be enough? The man has apparently been plagued by elbow and back injuries the whole summer.
Now we're not sure what hotel Woods is staying at, as there isn't a boatload of high-end hotels in Jersey City. Perhaps it's time to start traveling with a Tempurpedic, Tiger? After all, there's $10 million at stake here.
In the meantime, what do you think? Is Tiger being a big pussycat by blaming the hotel bed? Have you ever been unable to work thanks to a "too soft" sleeping situation? We'd like to know!

From the photo above, it's clear that Jennifer Aniston is totally into fiancé Justin Theroux. She and her beaux returned for a second jaunt to her favorite exclusive resort, the El Dorado Golf & Beach Club in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. The couple was just there in December.
Only strange thing? This couple can't seem to travel by themselves! They're always bringing people with them. Last year it was John Krazinksi, Emily Blunt, and Jimmy Kimmel. This year Jason Bateman and wife Amanda Anka came along.
What's the matter, Jennifer, aren't you able to spend some QT solo with your betrothed, the man who's been waiting and waiting for you to make an honest man of him? Maybe trade that SmartWater you're always toting around (always the consummate spokesperson!) for something a bit stronger and get the liquid courage to be alone with Justin at that beautiful resort.

Renaissance Hotels wants you to ignore the “Do Not Disturb” sign and discover what’s behind door #1. It could be Cee Lo Green.
They’ve just launched the “Discovery Doors” online contest which they describe as a “new interactive film-based digital gaming experience.” We like gaming as much as the next guy or gal, so we couldn’t resist gettin’ all interactive with Renaissance and tell you how it plays.
The online game is directed by award-winning director Jason Zada, creator of the oh-so-creepy Take This Lollipop Facebook phenom. You enter the lobby of a real life Renaissance hotel filled with a cast of characters who give you keys to unlock doors that have a surprise behind each. We’re not going to tell you what those surprises are, but to give you an idea of the coolness factor, for the contest kick-off Renaissance Hotels surprised an unsuspecting family at the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 with an intimate serenade. When they opened their door they entered a room full of candles, flowers and Cee Lo Green.
Sheila C. Johnson in her Southern belle best on The Salamander Resort's Grand Lawn
BET co-founder Sheila C. Johnson has had a heck of a busy August. Not only has she opened "The Butler", a star-studded movie featuring Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Vanessa Redgrave, and Mariah Carey, but next week on August 29th, she'll unveil her decade-long project--the Salamander Resort & Spa
It took ten years for the high powered executive to put together all the pieces necessary to build this 168-room luxury resort in Middleburg, Virginia. If you didn't know, Middleburg is a one-stoplight village just 35 minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport. It also gained fame when President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy started spending weekends there--Jackie riding horses on the Salamander property while JFK held press conferences in the village. Middleburg's also smack dab in the middle of northern Virginia's wine country.
So, one can see why Johnson would choose this location to build her dream hotel. The equestrian themed resort sits on 340 acres of land cultivated for horse and wine enthusiasts. Not only is there a 22-stall stable, riding ring, and trails on property, guests have the opportunity to board their own horses and take advantage of the full-service center, programming and clinics.
Washington D.C.-designer Thomas Pheasant, who has worked on Blair House (the president's guest house), the Hay-Adams Hotel and frequently appears in Architectural Digest, is the talent behind the Salamander's "horse-country" decor. The Living Room has two grand fireplaces and distressed oak-planked flooring and opens up onto a large stone terrace, which then leads to the dramatic Grand Lawn.

If you have long grizzly hair and a long grizzly beard to match, then you should carry your room key in one of those clear pouches around your neck when staying at The Trump Hotel in New York.
Jase Robertson, one of the stars of "Duck Dynasty", a reality TV show about the family who manufacture duck calls, revealed on Live! With Kelly and Michael that he had been kicked out of the Trump hotel near Central Park for looking like a homeless person. Here's what Robertson said went down
"I asked where the bathroom was and [the hotel employee] said, 'Right this way, sir.' He was very nice, he walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, 'Good luck.'"
Robertson later joked that the hotel had been "facial-profiling" him. It probably didn't help that he was also wearing camo pants. But he was a good sport about it and continued to stay at the hotel. (He just put 'em on blast on national TV.)
Just last week, fans of British boyband, One Direction, were lining up outside the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood hoping to get a glimpse of their teen idols. This week, another West Hollywood hotel is under siege from fans--The Chateau Marmont.
This was the holding area for Gaga's "Little Monsters" outside the hotel's valet entrance. As you can see, the Chateau is a pro at dealing with fan mobs and paparazzi crushes.
Gaga is staying over at Andre Balazs' super exclusive hideaway while she finishes up her new album. But her fans clearly already knew this as Twitter is littered with pap photos of Gaga leaving the hotel yesterday.
As for us, we didn't get to spend the night at Chateau (sigh) as it's entirely sold-out but we did manage to sneak in a quick breakfast meeting at their famed courtyard restaurant. Sadly, we had no Gaga or any other celeb sightings. Next time perhaps.
We can't say it enough, Miami is hot right now, and not just temperature wise. Not only are hotels popping up left and right, but celebrities are flocking down to South Beach in droves. And the interesting thing is--this is considered low season, where the star sightings are usually pretty slim.
First Bethenny Frankel Tweeted about heading down to sunny Florida yesterday:
Ok MIAMI ( @Fontainebleau beach) bring me a pink cocktail umbrella. I will be there closer to 2pm!— Bethenny Frankel (@Bethenny) August 13, 2013
Now we've just found out Emmy-award winning actress Kristen Chenoweth was at the W South Beach this past weekend celebrating her assistant and best friend Julie Trussell’s, bachelorette party.
Check out a few photos of Kristen basking in the SoBe sun.
Celebrity Scoop / Khloe Kardashian / Kris Jenner / Hollywood Hotels / Bad Celebrity Behaviors / Divorce Hotels / → All Tags
We've griped about housekeeping busting in on us when we were sleeping (or naked) but what would you do if it was Khloe Kardashian and momager, Kris Jenner, breaking down your hotel room door?
The tabloid magazine's newest issue features a woman named Polina Polonsky (real name, we think) who claims that she had a six-week affair with Khloe's husband, Lamar Odom. Polonsky gives a detailed description of the affair complete with dates and places (she even passed a lie detector test), including the hotel where Odom reportedly shacked up when the troubles with Khloe got to be too much. Daily Mail did the dirty reading so we didn't have to. Here's what happened:
In an attempt to confront Lamar while he was in the midst of being unfaithful, Polina claims Khloe and her mother Kris Jenner made an impromptu visit to The Roosevelt Hotel.
Getting no answer after knocking on what they believed to be Lamar's door, Khloe allegedly kicked down the door, before realising she had the wrong room.
Khloe and Kris then found the right room and reportedly confronted Lamar, who was on his own as Polina was at her apartment at the time.
