Aunt Becky and Uncle Joey Forever
Full House
's Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky were one of TV's cutest couples throughout most of the '90s, but there's a reason John Stamos and Lori Laughlin never got together in real life. Ready for this: The timing was off. "I was married at the time I was doing the show to my first husband," Loughlin told Us Weekly. "Literally when I was getting divorced, he met Rebecca [Romijn]."

So, basically, here's what she's really saying: "We TOTALLY would've hooked up otherwise." Sigh.

Stamos went on to marry Romijn, then they got divorced. But by that time Laughlin had married designer Mossimo Giannulli. So the realationship was really never meant to be. Maybe one day they could at least reenact their TV wedding for fun. Remember Uncle Jesse jumped out of a plane and got stuck in the tree before saying "I do"? That was awesome. Then he sang to her. Aww.

In true George Clooney fashion, he's been all over the world already with his new girlfriend. The actor is dating British lawyer Amal Alamuddin since the fall and things seem hot and heavy. How could they not be when you've gone on vacation to Tanzania and the Seychelles this month alone? Oh, and they had dinner together at the White House — typical new relationship stuff.

Alamuddin is 36 (he's 52) and apparently he "likes having her around." An insider told Us Weekly: "She's very smart and can hold a conversation." Bingo!

A Lost Baby
It's baby No. 2 for Sawyer. Lost star Josh Holloway welcomed his second child, a son, six weeks ago, he confirmed on the red carpet this week. He and wife Yessica Kumala welcomed Hunter Lee Holloway in February. They're already parents to 4-year-old daughter Java.

Cody Simpson's Hips Are on Lockdown
Pop star Cody Simpson will be shaking it on Dancing with the Stars this season, but he joked that his girlfriend is watching closely. Simpson is dating model Gigi Hadid and he told People her thoughts on the show: "Has she teased me? Not necessarily," Simpson said. "She's like, 'Don't move your hips too much in front of [Witney].' "

But he assures everyone his time on the show with pro Witney Carson will be "in good fun."

Red Wine + Wedding Dress

Most brides wear their wedding dress once and then lock it away in a hall closet for all eternity. But not Keira Knightley. The actress wears her Chanel frock to fancy parties all the time. The only problem with that is she spilled wine on it. Whoops.

“It’s now got red wine spilled down the front because the last time I wore it my friend [knocked my arm] and now it’s everywhere,” she said of her dress. “I didn’t quite realize the extent of it until I got home. It’s quite impressively splattered. But, hey, a good night is a good night and when a dress has had its time, maybe it’s had its time. I’m pretty sure I can get it out but, if I can’t, I’m happy with the memory of a good night and the story of how the dress got destroyed.”
