Yet ANOTHER Royal Wedding! Princess Diana's Brother Gets Hitched!

charles spencer marries karen gordon

Royal love REALLY seems to be in the air these days!

First, there was William and Kate's royal wedding.

Then Prince Albert II of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock announced THEIR royal wedding.

NOW Princess Diana's brother Charles Spencer has quietly gotten married to Canadian philanthropist Karen Gordon!

The wedding took place at Spencer's private estate in Northamptonshire, England over the weekend, and was attended only by "close family and friends."

It may have been low key, but it def sounds like it was a wonderful ceremony! And Karen must have been beautiful in her sleeveless, ivory lace dress.

Spencer HAS been married twice before…but they do say third time's a charm, don't they???

Congratulations, Charles and Karen! We wish U all the best!

Phantom Sequel Premieres To Mediocre Reviews!!

Filed under: Broadway Babies

wenn5438028jb.jpg

We guess sequels RARELY work, even when it's the theater!!

The sequel to the super successful musical Phantom of the Opera, called Love Never Dies, premiered last night in London's West End, and the critics are not being kind!!!

Ben Brantley, of the New York Times, called it a "poor sap of a show (which) feels as eager to be walloped as a clown in a carnival dunking booth. If you don't know the first Phantom, you will be very confused; if you do know the first Phantom, you will also be very confused."

Benedict Nightingale, of The Times, wrote:

"Where's the menace, the horror, the psychological darkness?"

However, if you can shut your brain off and just listen, some critics thought that Webber has done good on the music!!

Quentin Letts, of the Daily Mail, said:

"But if it is a miss, it is … a noble miss, noble because Lloyd Webber's increasingly operatic music tries to lift us to a higher plane."

And from the Telegraph, Charles Spencer says the tunes are "blessed with superbly haunting melodies and a yearning romanticism that sent shivers racing down my spine."

Hmmm.

We didn't expect too much from the plot. Once we heard there were three writers helping Webber write the story - which BIZARRELY puts the Phantom haunting the Coney Island fairgrounds ten years after the original - we figured the show's only potential saving grace would be the music!!

What do U think?? Will U go see Love Never Dies??
