    Taylor Hanson, the middle bro in the boyband Hanson, and his wife Natalie had their first child,a baby boy named Jordan Ezra, on October 31, 2002. News of the newest Hanson didn't get released until this month that's why we're reporting it in November!

    Celeb Law-Breakers

    Next week on Dawson's Creek, Pacey goes to jail! Joshua Jackson who plays Pacey Witter on Dawson's Creek landed behind bars this month because police say he drunkenly assaulted a security guard at a Carolina Hurricanes hockey game. Joshua supposedly threw punches at the guard. He posted his $1,000 bail and is due in court December.

  • Winona Ryder was found guilty on felony theft charges this month for her five-fingered, $5,000 shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue. The jury came back with the guilty verdict on November 5, 2002. Winona will be sentenced on December 6, 2002, but there will probably not be jail time for the actress. "We will not be asking for any jail time in this matter. We were simply asking for Ms. Ryder to take responsibility for her conduct," the Deputy District Attorney Ann Rundle told the press.


    It's official. Ben Affleck will become the third Mr. Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have publicly announced that they are engaged and will be married in 2003. Ben proposed to Jen at his mom's house in south Boston and gave her a pink diamond engagement ring worth over three million dollars. But remember, it don't matter about the rocks that she's got, she's still Jenny from the block!


    Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley checked into Heartbreak Hotel after only three months of marriage. Nicolas Cage filed for divorce from Lisa Marie Presley (Elvis' daughter) on November 25, 2002 stating irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. The couple tied the knot in Hawaii on August 10, 2002. This marks marriage number two for Nic and marriage number three for Lisa Marie, who raised eyebrows with her creepy marriage to Michael Jackson.

    Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.
