Olivia Newton-John's marriage and Angelina Jolie's twins made news the week of July 14, 20

MARRIED
Ethan Hawke (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead), 37, and Ryan Shawhughes, 28, tied the knot in NYC in June. Shawhughes, who is expecting their first child, reportedly worked as a nanny for his two children with ex-wife Uma Thurman, 38.... Actress-singer Olivia Newton-John, 59, wed businessman John Easterling, 56, in Florida on June 30. This is the second marriage for Newton-John, who split with actor Matt Lattanzi in 1995.

SPLIT
Jimmy Kimmel, 40, and Sarah Silverman, 37, are no longer together, reps announced on July 14. The comics began dating in 2003.

BIRTHS
Yet another little Hanson arrived, this one in Tulsa on July 1. James Monroe Hanson is the second son for multi-instrumentalist Isaac Hanson, 27, and wife Nikki, 24; Isaac's younger brother Zac Hanson, 22, greeted his firstborn in May, and middle brother Taylor Hanson, 25, has three kids.

COURTS
On July 3 in L.A., Kelsey Grammer, 53, was sued for breach of contract. The proprietors of the Last Detail, Inc., claim that the star owes them more than $150,000 for home remodeling done in 2006-07. ''This lawsuit has no merit,'' Grammer said in a statement. ''I pay my bills in a timely fashion.''... On July 12, W stars Josh Brolin, 40, and Jeffrey Wright, 42 — who play George W. Bush and Colin Powell, respectively, in Oliver Stone's upcoming biopic — were arrested at a bar in Shreveport, La., where Stone had been filming. They were charged with interfering with a police officer. Cops say the actors allegedly tried to stop the arrest of a crew member involved in an altercation at the bar. (Several other W crew members were picked up on related charges.) Brolin and Wright posted bond the same day and are due back in court in December.
