 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are married! E! News is reporting that the couple tied the knot this past Saturday in France with just family and friends in a small private ceremony. Jolie walked down the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox and Pax while Zahara and Vivienne threw petals.  Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

The curtain is coming down on Diane Sawyer's tenure as "ABC World News" anchor.  She signed off from her final broadcast last night saying it's been a deep privilege to sit in the anchor chair.  The 68-year-old Sawyer is stepping aside after serving as the show's anchor for five years. Sawyer is staying on with ABC News in a different role. 

"Sopranos" creator David Chase is reversing reports suggesting his confirmation that his mob boss character Tony Soprano is still alive.  Reports began circulating Wednesday saying Chase had told a writer that Tony did not die in "The Sopranos'" series finale in 2007.  Chase's rep now tells Chase's "no" response to the question: "Is Tony Soprano dead?" was "misconstrued."  Leslee Dart says "There is a much larger context for that statement," noting that Chase has said many times on the record that the final scene of 'The Sopranos" raises a spiritual question that has "no right or wrong answer." 

 Rumor has it that the next "Dancing with the Stars" cast will include:  "Pretty Little Liars" star Janel Parrish, actor Antonio Sabato Jr., and 17-year-old Sadie Robertson from "Duck Dynasty".  ABC won't officially announce the cast until next Thursday.
