Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen Finally Marry

Redheaded Australian actress Isla Fisher has finally married comedian Sacha Baron Cohen (a.k.a Borat). The two, who have been dating since 2002 and had a child together in 2007, finally got hitched in Paris, France. The wedding was a simple and private affair. In an email sent to friend Isla wrote, “We did it – we're married! It was the absolute best day of my life and in so many beautiful moments I missed you all so much. I thought of you as everything was happening, but Sacha and I wanted no fuss – just us!" She was probably afraid of wedding crashers. Zing! [People]

Mila Kunis Talks Jason Segel’s Penis in GQ

Mila Kunis appears in a super sexy pictorial for this month GQ magazine. The actress, who has been dating Macaulay Culkin for eight years, got talking about another man’s penis in the accompanying interview--Jason Segel's, to be exact. On playing opposite a nude Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall Kunis said, “Look, I want it on the record, okay? It's a nice dick. Well proportioned. Handsome. I have nothing but good things to say about Jason Segel's penis.” He should get that printed on a t-shirt. [GQ]

Father of Heisman Trophy Winner Gets 27 Month Behind Bars for Watching his Son Play in the Sugar Bowl

Mark Ingram Sr. received an extra 27 months of time added to his nearly eight-year prison sentence today for jumping bail in order to watch his son, Alabama Crimson Tide star running back Mark Ingram Jr., play in the 2009 Sugar Bowl. Last January, Ingram Sr. - facing a decade or so in prison for money laundering - wanted to see his son play one final time before heading to prison. So, like any convicted criminal with a superstar son would do, he fled authorities and attempted to watch his son play in a big time college football game. Unfortunately, officers found him mere hours before kick-off, making him unable to see Ingram Jr.'s Sugar Bowl performance. [Sporting News]

Mafia Boss Betrayed By Facebook

One of Italy's 100 most-wanted criminals, a vicious mafia boss who had been on the run for months, was betrayed by his passion for social networking and flushed out thanks to Facebook. Using the name Scarface from the gangster movie starring Al Pacino, Pasquale Manfredi, 33, a boss of the ferocious 'Ndrangheta mafia organization from the Calabria region in southern Italy, had logged on to his Facebook account so often that police were able to trace the signal from his Internet key and find his hideout.' Seems the Mafia Wars Facebook phenomenon goes deeper than it seemed. [ABC News]
