Surviving a shark attack to move on to having movies made of you, continuing to be a pro surfer, AND finding your soul mate?? Let's just say that Bethany Hamilton is a bigger badass than most of the planet!

Bethany just got hitched to Adam Dirks, who she found through surfing and a mutual love for their religion. She confirmed the marriage on Twitter:

"Today was the most beautiful, wonderful best day of my life! God is more than good (: Excited to live life with my husband Adam Dirks!"

Of course the wedding was in Hawaii — where else would it be?? The waves are rad on Kauai! Plus, she was born and raised there — and now she can say she was married there too!

We're SO happy for them!

Congrats, guys!

Dennis Quaid And His Wife Jog In Hawaii

Filed under: FitnessRunningCardioSurfing

Dennis Quaid jogs with wife

And it looks like she is a little faster than he is! Ha!

Dennis Quaid went for a jog with his wife, Kimberly, on Wednesday while on vacation in Hawaii.

The Footloose actor may one day be living on the island permanently, as sources say he recently put his Montana ranch up for sale and has said he dreams of moving to Hawaii to spend more time surfing!

We don't look at the 57-year-old and think of a surfer dude, but apparently he discovered his love for the aquatic sport while filming Soul Surfer.

Follow your passion, Dennis! Everyone else can check out more pics of the Hollywood veteran running through the tropical paradise below!

From Kelly To Carrie, Underwood Becomes American Idol's Biggest Earner!

carrie underwood surpasses kelly clarkson

You had a good run of it, Kelly!

American Idol season 4 winner Carrie Underwood has surpassed Kelly Clarkson as the biggest earning alumni of the show, with over 12,296,000 album sales and over 18,482,000 digital tracks sold! WOW!

Let's give credit where credit's due though - Kelly Clarkson had one hell of a reign, and she's still doing very well with over 10,600,000 albums sold and 15,900,000 digital tracks sold.

As far as tour revenues are concerned though, Carrie's got Kelly beat by a lot with $66,000,000+ in earnings, whereas Kelly has brought in around $32,000,000.

Underwood's earning score also gets a boost from her recent acting gigs, including the April film release Soul Surfer, which brought in a box office gross of $39.5 million. She's also snagged some recent guest appearances on TV shows, such as How I Met Your Mother.

As for Kelly, she hasn't done her acting thing in a while, but we mustn't forget her role in 2003's From Justin to Kelly.

…Okay, maybe she actually WOULD prefer if we forgot about that. JK Kelly! We love you lots and we can't wait to hear your new single in July!

Are U happy to hear that Carrie Underwood usurped Kelly Clarkson's top earner title? Or are U loyal to Team Kelly?

So, who came out on top??

Russell Brand of course!

The actor/comedian is king at the box office, taking in the top two films this weekend.

Who woulda thunk it??

His animated movie Hop continued its winning streak, being the number one film for the second week in a row, bringing in $21.7 million.

His live action film, the Arthur remake, was in second place and pulled in $12.6 million despite the fact that the film had been absolutely shredded by the critics.

Cate Blanchett's Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, came in third place with $12.3 million. The film has been receiving positive reviews and has managed to gain a huge audience through word of mouth.

Rounding out the top five were Soul Surfer, co-starring Carrie Underwood, with $11.1 million, and the horror movie Insidious, earning $9.7 million.

So, readers, what did U see this weekend??

Carrie Underwood Getting Into Acting - Of Course!

carriewenn5521127.jpg

Or rather, getting back into it!

A long, long time and several dozens of Grammys ago, Carrie Underwood starred in a little movie called Soul Surfer. Never heard of it? Well, Carrie would have preferred it that way since for years she vowed to stick to singing after seeing how awful she was in the flick.

But then recently, she watched the movie again and it turns out, she doesn't think she was half bad. Does this mean we should expect to see Carrie pull a Timberpussy turn for the worse to the movies sometime soon?

Maybe, but not right now. Carrie admits that she is just not ready to "carry" a film yet.

Good call! Stick to the music! If you want to act, make more elaborate music videos. Trust us, this is sound career advise!
