Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers didn’t waste any time.
Evans’ big sis Ashleigh Evans Wilson revealed the surprise nuptials Tuesday, just three months after they began dating and just two weeks after Rogers proposed.
The Teen Mom 2 star is a marred woman … goodness.
The news came as a surprise to more than just celebrity gossip readers.
“My mother was totally shocked and had to hear it from someone else,” says Wilson. “Our whole family is shocked because they have not been dating very long.”
“I’m sure she did this to distract from all the drug accusations that have beenMore >
So… did Justin Bieber get you?!?
The singer claimed earlier this week that footage from his camera and his computer was stolen.
He then engaged in what appeared to be a Twitter war with the culprit, who threatened to release an especially damaging piece of evidence against Bieber at noon today.
And what happened at noon today? Bieber unveiled the official music video for “Beauty and a Beat.” That’s right, America: you’ve been punked!Justin Bieber – “Beauty And A Beat” (Music Video)

At first glance, it seems disturbingly exploitive: Lifetime will soon air a reality show based around the family of Whitney Houston.
But sources tell TMZ the motivation behind this program isn’t merely to make money off the singer’s tragic death; for Cissy Houston, it’s to help boost the career of her granddaughter, 18-year old Bobbi Kristina.
While believing the series will push along the family’s “healing process,” Cissy is mostly concerned about Bobbi, insiders say, and hopes this will be a showcase for her talents.

Monday night, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky broke his silence on the stunning sexual abuse scandal that has roiled the university.
Facing 40 counts of sexual abuse against eight boys over a 15-year span, the former coach granted an exclusive interview with Bob Costas on NBC’s Rock Center.
Despite admitting he showered with boys, Sandusky maintained his innocence and rejected the term “pedophile,” amid some intense questioning by Costas:
The scandal led to the firing of Joe Paterno and Penn State’s president. But it’s Sandusky at theMore >
Kelly Rowland must have been thinking: ‘what Nicki can do I can do better,’ as just days after the Pink Friday star suffered a nip slip on GMA’s Summer Concert Series, the former Destiny’s Child singer followed suit and (accidentally) let both of her breasts hanging out in public.
The “incident” took place at New Jersey’s Club 4Sixty6 on Sunday when Rowland was in the midst of delivering an impressive performance. While singing her single “Motivation,” her upper body dance moves caused her bra top to stretch upwards, exposing her nipular regions in front of everyone.

Former Destiny’s Child member and current solo performer Kelly Rowland channeled her inner Nicki Minaj at a concert in New Jersey this weekend.
The 30-year-old exposed both nipples, but unlike Nicki, it’s hard to really term this a wardrobe malfunction, since … well, look at the outfit.
Also unlike the Nicki Minaj nipple slip debacle, Kelly’s concert wasn’t being broadcast LIVE on Good Morning America. Probably for the best:
When love takes over … clothes cannot contain her.

These days, Kelly Rowland is getting ready for the nationwide release of her new solo album “Here I Am.” Everything was going smooth for her until music producer Jeff Bhasker decided to launch an incredible attack on KR’s latest single “Motivation,” which will be a part of her upcoming disc.
Bhasker, whose music-making services have been acquired by big names such as Kanye West, Beyonce and Alicia Keys in the past, revealed his negative thoughts about “Motivation” on micro-blogging website Twitter.
He tweeted, “How can this kr song with the weakest beat and melody of all time be the #1 songMore >
The violent side of Jenelle Evans wasn’t the only reason this Teen Mom 2 star gave a vicious beatdown to Britany Truett last week. She was also pushed into her enemy. Literally.
Now, Brittany Maggard, the girl who gave Jenelle the shove that propelled her toward Truett, has spoken out about her motivation behind the incident. Give her credit for honest, at least.
“Jenelle wanted to go and fight Britany because of something with her man,” Maggard tells TMZ. “She was scared and wouldn’t go fight by herself so I went to help her out.”
Fights with her mom are suddenly the least of JenelleMore >
Raising money for a good cause? Showing he can take a joke? Preparing for the rigors of a 2012 presidential run? Maybe a little of all of the above?
Whatever the motivation, Donald Trump raised $2 million for charity in N.Y.C. last night by enduring an epic verbal pummeling on Comedy Central.
There’s certainly no shortage of material with this character.
The roast of The Donald, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, was not an event he was stoked about at first, but he quickly volunteered when offered $2M.
Trump plans to donate the FULL amount to charity. The special airs March 15.

Rihanna is cool with Chris Brown being in contact with her again.
Let’s be clear in that it’s unclear just how much contact they plan on having. But her lawyer says she would like the restraining order against Brown lifted, which would enable him to get close to her again without risking getting thrown in jail.
Whatever the motivation, she’s come a long way since 2009.
Brown requested the court drop the restraining order recently.
The recently-jailed rapper T.I. just posted a statement on his official site, calling life inside a federal prison in Arkansas “truly a pain I have never felt before.”
In the first month of an 11-month sentence for violating probation, he says bluntly, “I don’t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward.”
But … “I’m certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it.”
T.I. is not loving life these days.

Willow Smith has an entire nation whipping their hair. But why?
What is the motivation behind the nine-year’s hit new single?
“Whip My Hair means don’t be afraid to be yourself, and don’t let anybody tell you that that’s wrong. Because the best thing is you,” Smith told MTV this week.
In the official video for the single, viewers watch as a bunch of kids whip their hair around and splatter paint on the walls of a school.
Willow has dubbed these pre-teens the “Warriorettes.”

Just a few days removed from a hospitalization for a rumored suicide attempt, Fantasia Barrino is getting back to work.
The singer’s new album, “Back to Me,” comes out on Facebook and Amazon today, which means scheduled promotional appearances the artist will fulfill. In a statement, Fantasia says:

Two of the biggest stars in the rap game have released new music videos this week.
First, Eminem teamed up with Rihanna to deliver “Love the Way You Lie,” which features Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan.
Now, Kanye West has delivered his rebuttal, a religious-themed video in honor of his latest single, “Power.” It puts the star (and his giant gold chain) front and center, with director/artist Marco Brambilla explaining the motivation as follows:
“I’ve always wanted to do something that would visualize power, to do a portrait of what power would look like in a sort of timeless way and beingMore >
Tonight on The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky must walk the tightrope with a suitor … literally. To reach their dinner date, they must embark on this dangerous quest.
The adventure will bring them closer together and so on and so forth. This is a Bachelor staple. We’re just happy the guy is Roberto Martinez. He seems decent.
Meanwhile, The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, the guys begin to grow suspicious of Justin Rego, a.k.a. Rated R, and his motivation for coming on the program.
Perhaps the biggest fireworks of all, however, come as Ali and nine of the guys film scenes for a new BarenakedMore >
