Trial date set for Ryder
Beverly Hills, Calif. ï¿½ Negotiations for a plea bargain in Winona Ryder's shoplifting case have fallen apart, so a judge on Wednesday set a trial.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Ann Rundle didn't describe the offer made to the actress or say why it was withdrawn.
Superior Court Judge Elden Fox then set Oct. 7 for a trial.Ryder, 30, is charged with second-degree burglary, grand theft, vandalism and possession of a controlled substance. She could face three years in prison if convicted.
Ryder, a movie actress, was arrested Dec. 12 at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills for allegedly stealing nearly $6,000 worth of designer merchandise and illegally possessing painkillers.
No doubt, they're married
New York ï¿½ No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, dressed in a white-and-pink silk faille gown by John Galliano for Christian Dior, married Gavin Rossdale of Bush in London.
The wedding took place Saturday at St. Paul's church, with friends and family attending the hour-long ceremony, Us magazine reported.
The nuptials didn't end there ï¿½ the two are having a second ceremony in L.A., for family and friends who missed the one in London. Then they'll spend their honeymoon in France.
New York ï¿½ It took a good cause to bring model Iman back to the frenzy that is New York Fashion Week.
But she won't be on the runways.
Iman, 47, is promoting the fashion industry's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer fund-raising initiative, sponsored by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Saks Fifth Avenue.
"The main consumer of fashion is women. It is our industry's responsibility to educate them, and there are a lot of young girls in the business ï¿½ women who think they are invincible ï¿½ who need to know about this," she told The Associated Press.
Iman, 47, retired from the catwalk in 1989. Although she still does photo shoots, she's concentrating on her cosmetics business, I-Iman, and her family ï¿½ husband-rock star David Bowie and her two daughters.
Location is everything
Nashville, Tenn. ï¿½ Singer-actor Billy Ray Cyrus wants to move his "Doc" TV show from Toronto to Nashville so he can spend more time with his family.
Tennessee officials are considering ways to accommodate the series, said Patricia Ledford of the Tennessee Film, Entertainment & Music Commission.
"Doc" producer Marilyn Stonehouse said Monday that she's agreeable to moving, provided it makes financial sense.
"We're very aware of Billy Ray's preferences and would like to address them," she said. "The money is the issue, and we're looking for ways and means to do it."
"Doc" airs on the PAX cable network.
