Dear Gossips,

Would love to know how it works when it comes to wedding photo negotiations. Like does George Clooney tell PEOPLE and HELLO! that "I won't take anything less than what Brad got"? Or does he say "If you give me x percent more, I'll give you x percent more - more photos, more quotes, more access"?

And is there a photo checklist from the publication that has to be satisfied? Like do PEOPLE and HELLO! specify that they want:

- The Dress, front and back
- The Cake
- Bride and Groom together, must be touching
- $100k bonus if you give us a kiss
- $100k bonus if you give us a photo of celebrity guests
- at least one group family shot
- at least one sappy quote

Who has the power here? The seller or the buyer? The buyer ended up getting shafted for the Timberlake wedding when all the pictures came back low quality and not all that impressive.  Read Full Intro

As I reported yesterday (click here for a refresher), Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney's wedding photos were sold to PEOPLE and HELLO! and not VOGUE as initially reported. VOGUE doesn't have that kind of money. What, really, was there left to see though? Well, obviously, the dress. Full Story

I suppose that’s the other mystery, apart from the dress. Maybe not anymore? A few European media outlets are reporting that Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney are heading to Marrakesh for their honeymoon. A Moroccan honeymoon? It’s so Mimi! You think they’re taking us there too? Are we invited on the honeymoon? Am attaching more shots today of the two of them making it legal. Full Story

The Amal & George wedding photos

Here’s a quick update: Everyone’s thinking VOGUE because Anna Wintour was there but it’s looking like PEOPLE and HELLO! are publishing the Amal Alamuddin-George Clooney wedding photos, just like it was with Brange. One source told me that VOGUE simply couldn’t pay that much money and that only a PEOPLE/HELLO! joint bid would both satisfy the financial requirement (to be donated) and also the “nice reporting/nice gossip” demands. Full Story

She started off the weekend in black and white on Friday – click here  and here for a refresher. On Friday night for the rehearsal dinner it was a red McQueen. Gorgeous.  On Saturday, Amal Alamuddin was kept hidden. Full Story

The “unreachable” Brad Pitt…with Shia as his wingman

Brange was not photographed at the Clooney wedding. Some are hoping they were there, just incognito. But you know what? It’s not like they hang out a lot. You see Clooney with Damon, Krasinski, Murray… Since Oceans, you don’t see him with Brad. Their friendship has been overblown… maybe because of wishful thinking. Full Story

Everything but the dress

At this point, it’s really the only detail we don’t know: what did Amal Alamuddin’s wedding dress look like? Since Anna Wintour was there, VOGUE will likely tell us in the next month or so. Fine. At this point, I actually feel sated. He gave us enough, don’t you think? More than enough. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

George Clooney is getting married this weekend. Canals in Venice will be shut down. By Monday the city will start floating on Casamigos Tequila.

Here’s Matt Damon arriving with his wife Luciana. If Damon’s there, I can’t imagine John Krasinski and Emily Blunt not being there. I’ll post more photos as they become available through the day… if I don’t get distracted by my birthday.

Celebrating a birthday is always an excuse to take it easy. But celebrating your birthday on a Friday? It would be almost UNNATURAL to work too hard on a birthday Friday. But you still go to work. Always go to work on your birthday if it’s a weekday. Because then everyone has to be nice to you AND you get a free pass to f-ck around.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

You know, I kinda love that he’s just letting us see. He’s letting us see everything. I mean, if you choose to get  married in Venice, you can’t expect to be not exposed. You simply can’t go underground. So they’re just embracing it. There’s no attempt by his security to put up umbrellas or block paps or shield them from view. Full Story

This photo showed up on Twitter today. It’s George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin on a boat in Venice with Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford. Does that mean Rande’s the best man? Note there’s an official photographer on board with them documenting the moment. Full Story

It’s an obvious title. But I feel like we have to get obvious here. Because, well, nothing has been subtle about the Amal Alamuddin-George Clooney wedding roll-out. He told us when and where. We know the hotel, we know the designers, we know the officiant. In two days, George will marry Amal in Venice. Full Story

I feel like I know more about this wedding than the Kanye West wedding. That said, you know who would agree with making the wedding as big of a f-cking deal as possible and broadcasting it far and wide? My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken. It’s a celebration. You don’t hide a celebration in a corner. Full Story

Are you going to the wedding?

There are a lot of fans of Matt Damon out there. But Matt Damon doesn’t make himself available too often for pap shots…even though, ahem, he lives very close to the Afflecks. This is another conversation. Here’s Matt Damon out for dinner in Brentwood last night. They keep putting his name on the reported list of celebrity guests to George Clooney’s wedding. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed yesterday that George Clooney will be the 2015 recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award. You think they’re giving it to him on the just the work…and not because they want him to show up at their party? Come on. It’s the HFPA. Full Story
