Celebrity Recap - June 2004
June Celebrity Birthdays
Mary-Kate Checks into Eating Disorder ClinicJust days before turning 18, Mary-Kate Olsen checked into an eating disorder clinic due to her battle with anorexia. The Olsen twins were scheduled to head to Australia during June 2004 to promote their flick, New York Minute, but trip plans were cancelled when Mary-Kate's illness became public and Ashley decided to stay by her sister's side. Ashley was quoted as saying, "She's hanging in there. She's taking the time she needs for herself right now. It's private." The twins still plan to attend New York University together this fall.
Britney's Gettin' Hitched... Again!Sure, she just had her first marriage annulled a few short months ago, but this time, she's really found her dream man. Britney Spears has announced her engagement to back-up dancer Kevin Federline - who's ex-girlfriend is expecting their second child in July 2004. Ever since the engagement announcement, rumors have been flying about Britney's retirement, a possible pregnancy and about a million other stories. What does Kevin's ex, Shar Jackson, have to say about the whole situation? "If Britney and Kevin want to be a couple, that's fine with me. But there are two little kids. She'd better be prepared to babysit."
J. Lo Gets Hitched... Again!We all knew it was going to happen eventually. Really, isn't it surprising that J. Lo hasn't been married sooner than this? She and Marc Anthony tied the knot early in June 2004 to the surprise of many - including Marc's ex-wife, who heard about it on the news the next morning. Since saying "I do", Marc hasn't wasted any time in pampering his new bride, apparently spending $24,000 US on a pair of gold flip flops. Think he'll regret that after the divorce?
