Today's news you might've missed:

  • If reports are true, this just hasn't been Madonna's....past few months?

  • Did you wonder where Zooey Deschanel skipped off to when it was revealed she'd left after singing the national anthem at game four of the World Series?

Robin Williams says 'I Do' in Napa

It was a weekend for weddings: Along with former "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas, actor/comedian Robin Williams made his own trip down the aisle.

The 60-year-old Oscar winner wed graphic designer Susan Schneider in a ceremony held in Napa Valley, CNN confirms.

According to People, this is the actor's third marriage, and he also has three kids from the two prior unions: Zachary, 28, Zelda, 22 and Cody, 19.

The Guardian reports that Williams and Schneider met just before he underwent heart surgery in 2009, and Susan was there to help him regain his health.

According to tweets from his daughter Zelda, the Napa nuptials were quite the occasion: "Let the wedding madness begin!" she tweeted over the weekend, following up afterwards, "The wedding festivities rage on but my tired feet are done."

Cheers to a 25th year, Drake

Cheers to a 25th year, Drake

Drake’s birthday raises an obvious question: What to get the Canadian rapper who seems to have it all, including all of those snazzy sweaters?

Drake, who turned 25 Monday, celebrated over the weekend at TAO nightclub in Las Vegas, according to Rap-Up. (We wonder if he bumped into Kim Kardashian...) The entertainer was actually spotted wearing a Versace button-down instead of his typical garment of choice.

“I have a sweater obsession, I guess,” Drake told Vulture in September. “I don't know, that's honestly my favorite clothing item,” he added. He even poked fun at his love for sweaters during a recent “Saturday Night Live” skit with Andy Samberg.

But instead of a cardigan, MTV reports that AllThingsFresh opted to get Drizzy a "customized OVO kit," along with help from Good Wood NYC. The offering featured beaded bracelets, drinking glasses, shot glasses and iPhone cases (all bearing the owl, of course).

As for the artist himself, he tweeted, "Momma I feel so alive...I made it to 25. Thank you all," along with a photo of him checking out the skyline with the caption, "You only live once."

'Paranormal Activity 3': What's the verdict?

"Paranormal Activity 3" was no less of a box office success than its predecessors, but was it worth the cost of admission?

While critics seemed generally pleased with Paramount's return to the found footage horror flick, moveigoers were a little less sure.

The Los Angeles Times reports that while "PA3" stuck to its low budget - that would be $5 million - it was still "far and away the sharpest, most wildly aware film of the series," filled with "newfound wit and invention."

Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion take on Shakespeare

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon has understandably had a lot on his plate lately, what with directing Marvel's "The Avengers" and overseeing a new "season" of "Buffy" comics.

But that doesn't mean he isn't able to squeeze in something like, oh, adapting one of the most famous works of William Shakespeare into a feature length movie.

A website for the fan favorite director's version of "Much Ado About Nothing" was launched on Sunday, with a cast of actors from many of his cult classic TV series.
