Buzzmakers: Jordan Weds & Paris Reunites With Mom
May 04, 2013
What had ET readers buzzing this week?
Michael Jordan married Yvette Prieto last weekend in Jupiter, FL and ET has a look at the location said to have housed a thousand or so guests for the NBA star's wedding celebration!
In an aerial photo, courtesy of JeffRealty.com, we see Jordan's 40,000 sq. ft. wedding tent (5,000 sq. ft. larger than the former basketball player's 35,000 sq. ft. home) set on golfer Jack Nicklaus' driving range. It is reportedly the "largest wedding tent in history."
Jordan, 50, proposed to model Prieto over the Christmas holiday this past year. The wedding ceremony took place at Bethesda by the Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida -- the same church that provided the setting for Donald and Melania Trump's 2005 wedding.
This will be the athlete's second time at the altar, having previously wed Juanita Vanoy in 1989. The couple called it quits in 2006 after 18 years of marriage.

ET has exclusively obtained the first photo of the late Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, reuniting with her mother Debbie Rowe.
The two were spotted celebrating Paris' 15th birthday at Ahi Sushi in Studio City, Calif. on April 3, 2013.
According to Rowe, former wife to the late King of Pop, the two celebrated with a day of shopping and quality mother-daughter quality time.
Paris tweeted on her birthday: "Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes!! You guys are beautiful and I love you!!"
Rowe, 54, married Jackson on November 14, 1996, in Sydney, Australia, and later divorced the music icon in Oct. 1999. They had two children together: Prince Michael Jackson Jr., born February 13, 1997, and Paris Jackson, born on April 3, 1998. Both kids live with Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, who also looks after the singer's youngest son, Prince Michael Jackson II, age 11.
In an interview with ET this past year, Paris had some advice for kids of famous parents, saying simply, "Stay humble. Don't let things get to your head."
Both Paris and Prince have expressed interest in acting, with Prince Michael already landing a role on the May 15 episode of The CW's 90210. "It was kind of more like just a regular conversation just with a camera in front," the 16-year-old said of his acting debut. "I went to a couple of acting classes for a couple of hours and did some privates."
Michael Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009. He was 49.
Global superstar Mariah Carey and her husband, actor/comedian Nick Cannon, exclusively invited ET's Nancy O'Dell to celebrate the renewal of their vows April 30 on their 5th wedding anniversary at a lavish private ceremony at Disneyland. Mariah and Nick also celebrated the 2nd birthday of their twins, son Moroccan Scott and daughter Monroe, at a prince and princess-themed party, which took place in the park before their ceremony.
The couple shared details of their elaborate ceremony exclusively with ET. Carey slipped into a princess-inspired bridal gown for the event at the well-appointed Dream Suite, tucked away above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. From the suite, Mariah and Monroe were picked up in a horse-drawn Crystal Carriage that took them to Main Street, where they were greeted by Nick and Moroccan. They walked down the aisle as a family to Sleeping Beauty Castle, which served as the backdrop for the outdoor ceremony.
The twins sat in the front row to witness the vow renewals which were themed, "Do you believe in fairy tales?" Immediately after the ceremony, there was a burst of fireworks, a surprise for Carey.
The Royal Footman from Cinderella, Major Domo, served as Master of Ceremonies for the evening and escorted the approximately 250 guests to Fantasyland for a champagne toast and reception DJ'd by Cannon. The space was adorned with 15,000 blooms imported from South Africa, Holland and France, and 10,000 crystals. Guests were able to take advantage of the park being closed to the public and ride the famous Matterhorn Bobsleds, the King Arthur Carousel and peruse the Peter Pan and Snow White attractions.
At the end of the evening, Major Domo escorted guests back through the castle where the Crystal Carriage met the couple to return them to the Dream Suite.
Earlier in the evening, Moroccan and Monroe celebrated their second birthday with 150 guests in the newly opened Fantasy Faire section of the park. Disney princess characters joined with Mickey and Minnie Mouse to celebrate with the children.
Carey, 43, and Cannon, 32, have renewed their vows every year to celebrate their anniversary. Last year they renewed their vows at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The American Idol judge also took to Instagram to share a few pics on her fifth wedding anniversary. One caption reads: "Happy 5th (!!!!!!) Anniversary to the Best Husband in All The Land & 2 years ago pon de delivery room=luckiest Mommy in The WORLD!"
The couple married on Windermere Island in the Bahamas on April 30, 2008, and on April 30, 2011, they welcomed "dem babies," twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Chelsea Handler made the World's Most Beautiful Woman, Gwyneth Paltrow, blush on her Tuesday night talk show. Handler recalled a story about the Iron Man 3 star giving advice during a dinner party, and called Paltrow out on the SUPER sexual recommendation.
"We were at a dinner party one night and this girl was asking for advice and Gwyneth is an amazing advice giver. The woman was saying 'I got into a big fight with my husband and I got home and I wanted to scream and yell,'" Handler, 38, began. "You (Paltrow) were like, 'Whatever you're doing, do the opposite. If you feel angry, go at him with love and you give him a blow job.'"
Paltrow, 40, covering her face in embarrassment reacted, "Oh my God."
Handler quipped back, "That happened!" A mortified Paltrow reacted, "What if my mother sees this show?"
"I'm already sending a copy of this show to your mother," the Chelsea Lately host joked. "People need to know that you're like that, because you are! That's amazing, I was like, 'Give a blow --?! No, I'm not doing that!'"
Jenny McCarthy decided to break news about Amanda Bynes May 1, claiming that cops were called out to the actress' New York home. Tweeting the news, McCarthy even attempted to provide proof.
"Police are at @AmandaBynes house. I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help," McCarthy, 40, tweeted, later adding that the news came from a publicist.
She followed this up by posting a screen grab of Jonathan Jaxson's tweets. Jaxson is reportedly a former publicist to the What I Like About You star.
UPDATE: Bynes responded to McCarthy's tweets this morning, writing: "@JennyMcCarthy you're ugly! Police weren't at my house old lady! Shut the [f**k] up!"
The actress added: "@jennymccarthy I need help? What are u talking about? Aren't u 50 years old? I'm 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?"
Jenny tweeted back: "@AmandaBynes sorry girl. Looking out for ya."
Bynes wrote back: "@JennyMcCarthy thanks! I'm sorry I offended you! You're beautiful! I was lying! I'll delete our tweets!"
Admitting to deleting some of his tweets, one of Jaxson's remaining messages reads: "I just spoke to @AmandaBynes and she is soooo messed up on drugs and please @NY_POLICE find her and help her! I don't know her address!"
He adds: "If trying to help someone you feel is in trouble is a crime, then there is a problem. A cry for help is just that! I did what I KNEW to do!"
This alleged intervention came moments after Bynes, 27, posted topless photos of herself on Twitter.
ET spoke with law enforcement, and could not confirm that cops were actually called out to her house.
