Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Renew Vows at Disneyland

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary -- and their twins’ second birthday -- by renewing their vows at Disneyland.

“On our way to renew our vows. I love you shut down Disneyland...,” Carey tweeted en route to the California theme park Tuesday evening.

Carey posted video on Twitter of her grand entrance with daughter Monroe in the park’s horse-drawn Crystal Carriage. After arriving on Main Street, they were met by Cannon and son Moroccan. Together, the family of four walked to the Sleeping Beauty Castle, where Carey and Cannon renewed their vows before 250 guests, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Entertainment Tonight reported that the ceremony’s theme was “Do you believe in fairy tales?”

The ceremony concluded with fireworks and was followed by a reception in Fantasyland, where Cannon played deejay. Guests also had access to some of the theme park’s rides.

Earlier in the day, Carey and Cannon celebrated their twins’ birthdays with Mickey and Minnie Mouse before mom and daughter changed into ruffled white dresses and dad and son donned matching princely attire.

First Look: Agnes Bruckner as Anna Nicole Smith

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Private Practice actress Agnes Bruckner has been transformed from brunette tomboy to the blonde bombshell Anna Nicole Smith for Lifetime’s new biopic.

Entertainment Tonight got a first look at Bruckner as the tragic Playboy model on the set of the upcoming made-for-TV movie The Anna Nicole Story.

“The transformation has been amazing,” Bruckner told ET. “I came into this a brunette — a total tomboy.”

Beyond looks, Bruckner, 27, dived into the role after doing hours of research. “I watched ET stories, YouTube clips. So much of her life was on camera,” she said.

“It’s just such a fascinating story to me. There were so many different layers to her, and she was so iconic and so larger-than-life. It was just something that I was like, ‘This is gonna be really scary but it’s gonna be really awesome at the same time.’”

Bruckner, who made her feature film debut as a high school student having an affair with her teacher in 2002′s Blue Car, was featured in The Glass House and Murder By Numbers, co-starring Sandra Bullock.

The Anna Nicole Story will chronicle Smith’s evolution from Vicky Lynn Hogan, a pretty but plain girl growing up in a small Texas town, to Anna Nicole Smith, the voluptuous Playboy pin-up and model.

“She had so many ups and downs — weight gain and then lost it — she was messy and crazy and then she was really put-together at times,” said Bruckner.

Bruckner’s co-star Adam Goldberg, who plays Smith’s lawyer/boyfriend Howard K. Stern, gives Bruckner kudos for her portrayal of Smith, which he says could easily have fallen into an impression of the late model.

“She’s not doing an impression of [Anna Nicole],” Goldberg told ET. “I think it’s a very difficult role to play because there is just so much tape on this woman that’s it’s very easy to just do an impression. … You have to find something in it that is honest for yourself and I think that’s what Agnes is doing.”

Goldberg has posted pictures of Bruckner as Smith on his Tumblr.

The film will also feature Hollywood legend Martin Landau as J. Howard Marshall, the Texas oil billionaire who married Smith despite their 63-year age difference.

“We think of J. Howard as an old geezer who picked her up in a strip bar,” the actor told ET. But Landau said he was a magna cum laude graduate from Yale who became one of the world’s most foremost lawyers advising FDR’s cabinet during World War II before moving to Texas to make his fortune.

Smith, who went on to star in her own reality show, died in 2007 at the age of 39 from a drug overdose. After a dramatic paternity battle following her death, Larry Birkhead was awarded custody of his and Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn, 5.

Stern and Smith’s psychiatrist were later convicted of drug conspiracy for obtaining prescription drugs for Smith. The convictions were overturned, then an appellate court ruled they should be reinstated.

Jewelry Store Defends Release of Surveillance Video in Lindsay Lohan Theft Case

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- The jewelry store where Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole a necklace is defending the release of surveillance video of the actress in the store at the time of the alleged theft. A spokesman for Kamofie & Co. in Venice, Calif. said in a statement obtained by People magazine, "We were upset with the various mischaracterizations we were seeing and hearing about the video and its contents, and we felt the video should be allowed to speak for itself." The store says it does not believe the release of the video will influence the outcome of Lindsay's criminal case.

The website says it has obtained "an exclusive license" for the footage, though Entertainment Tonight posted a clip on its own site on Monday. ET also aired footage on its show Monday night.

Kamofie & Co. says it did not grant permission to Lindsay to take the necklace, despite her reported claims that she had borrowed it. Lindsay has pleaded not guilty in the case.

With Regis and Kelly and Entertainment Tonight, respectively, but they're both firm in their plans not to retire from showbiz. "Regis doesn't want to use the R word -- retirement -- and neither do I," Hart tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I want to do something different. It may not be on television." Hart says when she caught up with Philbin on Tuesday, they even reminisced about when they worked together for a short time on a 1981 morning variety series on NBC.

Philbin told the Hollywood Reporter he hasn't decided when to leave Live! With Regis and Kelly. He says he'll hang it up either at the end of August, or as the network prefers, at the end of November sweeps.

Mary Hart's final ET sign-off will be May 25. "I am not looking forward to that last day," she explains. "How do you say goodbye to an audience and to my family at ET?"
