Congrats are in order for actress Lea Michele and her now-husband, Zandy Reich! The two tied the knot in Napa on March 9, during an intimate Napa ceremony surrounded by family and friends, including Lea’s former Glee cast mates Darren Criss and Becca Tobin, and Scream Queens‘s Emma Roberts. Lea also reportedly got her wish and had Ryan Murphy officiate the wedding.
Lea and Zandy are old friends and started dating publicly in July 2017. He popped the question last year on April 28, and Lea announced the news by showing off her ginormous rock. They’ve celebrated over the past year with elegant engagement parties and bridal showers, and Lea brought her bridesmaids to Hawaii last month for a bachelorette getaway. We wish Zandy and Lea all the best in their future together!
You Won’t Be Able to Get Through Louis Tomlinson’s “Two of Us” Without Sobbing
It’s been two years since Louis Tomlinson’s mom, Johannah Deakin, passed away, but the 27-year-old singer is keeping her memory alive. On Thursday, Tomlinson dropped a new single titled “Two of Us,” which is a beautiful tribute to his late mom that he said he “absolutely needed to write.” “I just feel like musically, I almost needed to get this song off my chest,” Tomlinson said in a statement. “People say writing is a part of therapy and in a way, I feel like I’d been avoiding writing this song because I knew I only had one chance to get it right.
I don’t mean to be too soppy about it, but if ‘Two of Us’ can help just one other person who’s going through the tough time that I went through, then that would make me really happy.” Tomlinson’s mom may have passed away in December 2016 after a year-long battle with leukemia, but something tells us she would be very proud.

Shameless Fans Are Crying Happy Tears After Fiona’s Bittersweet Departure
Warning: the following post contains spoilers for the season nine finale of Shameless.
It was a bittersweet goodbye for Fiona Gallagher during Sunday night’s season nine finale of Shameless. Since Emmy Rossum announced that she’d be leaving the show after this season, fans have hypothesized about her exit. Would she reunite with Jimmy/Steve? Would she keep going down a dark path and end up in jail or rehab? But as fans prepared for the worst, Fiona’s exit went down in the warmest, most un-Gallagher way possible, and it has everyone crying happy tears.
After hitting rock bottom during last week’s episode and later receiving a check for $100K from her former business partner Max, Fiona is very aware of the second (or sixth) chance she is given. Her attorney said it best: “You seem like a smart girl, Fiona. [It’s] time to leave this South Side hood-rat crap behind you and get on with being an adult.” So, that’s exactly what she did.
Fiona says her goodbye to Ian in prison, leaves a very generous gift for Debbie, and she even shares an unexpected, tear-jerking moment with Frank before taking her suitcase and heading out the door. It’s an incredibly emotional farewell, but a happy one, and we can’t wait to see how the Gallagher family evolves without her leadership in season 10. Ahead, see how fans are reacting to Fiona’s sentimental departure after 111 episodes on the show.
