Wednesday gossip roundup: Are Rihanna and Chris Brown planning a secret wedding?

Gossip Rihanna Chris Brown

Anyone who follows Rihanna‘s Twitter feed knows that Chris Brown is definitely back in her life in a big way, but the latest news still comes as a shock: Rihanna is reportedly planning to marry Brown in a secret New Year’s Eve ceremony while the pair are visiting her native Barbados for the holidays, according to Hollyscoop. One person not too thrilled about the rumored wedding? Rihanna’s mom. “She called Rihanna to yell at her, asking what she’s doing with her life,” a source says.

Kate Middleton is on the mend after being hospitalized for acute morning sickness earlier this week. “The Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to feel better,” a spokesman for the royal couple says in a statement. “She and the Duke are immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received. She will remain in hospital at present and will continue to be treated for hyperemesis gravidarum.” Middleton is among the less than one percent of pregnant women who suffer from the condition. Symptoms include severe nausea, weight loss, dehydration and fainting.

Stevie Nicks is standing by pal Kristen Stewart and thinks folks need to cut her some slack in the wake of her cheating scandal from this past summer. “I was her age once, and exactly what happened to her happened to me two or three times, and whoever it was that I was with forgave me all two or three times,” Nicks tells Us Weekly. “The fact is that when you’re young and you’ve been in a relationship for a long time and something comes along that is a little bit overwhelming and magical, and you’re kind of in another situation with someone else, things happen.”

Former “Malcolm in the Middle” star Frankie Muniz shocked fans on Twitter with the news that he’d suffered a stroke just days before his 27th birthday. “I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a ‘mini stroke,’ which was not fun at all,” Muniz posted. “Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!” Muniz was taken to an emergency room near his Arizona home after friends noticed he was having trouble speaking.

Eddie Murphy has earned the dubious honor of the Most Overpaid Actor in Hollywood, according to Forbes magazine’s annual list. For every dollar that a studio paid Murphy for his last three movies, the studio earned $2.30, the worst rate of return for a star in the business. His only film released this year, the poorly reviewed “a Thousand Words,” pulled in roughly $20 million worldwide but cost an estimated $40 million to produce. Second on the list is Katherine Heigl, earning studios an average of $3.40 for every dollar she’s paid.
