While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Ladies, gents, we hate to burst your Michael Ealy fantasies but ... the actor secretly tied the knot to his longtime girlfriend Khatira Rafiqzada in October. [People]
  • Speaking of weddings, Blake Lively must have been so radiant in her wedding dress that a photographer couldn't even capture it. A slideshow of her wedding includes every pastry imaginable and just a teensy glimpse of the gown. [Martha Stewart Weddings]
  • Simon Cowell, you minx. Instead of just answering in the affirmative if he's dating Carmen Electra, the "X Factor" judge told Ryan Seacrest, "We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?" [Ryan Seacrest]
  • Shiri Appleby is going to become a mom. The former "Roswell" star, 34, and her fiance Jon Shook are awaiting their first child together. [Us Weekly]
  • Here's something to sing about: A "Pitch Perfect" sequel might be in the works, with Rebel Wilson potentially making a return (as if anyone would see this sequel without her). [Movieweb]
  • Remember how Ke$ha said she was forced to sing the lyrics to "Die Young"? What she meant to say was, "I had some concerns about the phrase 'die young.'" As she figured out, forced isn't really the word to use there. [Ke$ha's website]
  • So, you think you can dance? Now you have another opportunity to prove it - the Fox competition has been picked up for a 10th season. [Fox]
