The legacy lives on ...
Christopher Reeve's widow said she remembers how he dealt with his own tragedy as she tries to work through the "void in our home life" after his death.
"It was always his intention to keep life going even after adversity," Dana Reeve told the Associated Press in her first interview since her husband died Oct. 10. "That was the spirit he lived by."
Reeve spent nine years caring for her famous husband -- the Hollywood "Superman" turned activist for spinal cord research after an equestrian accident -- and succeeded her husband as head of the board of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation. A fund-raiser tonight will include Minnie Driver as host, and entertainment from Paul Simon. Reeve said the evening was planned before her husband died and has evolved into something of a tribute to him.
Farewell? Who, us? ...
The Who may be returning, again.
In a posting on his Web site, Pete Townshend says that he and singer Roger Daltrey are planning to get together for the first Who studio album in more than two decades.
"Roger and I will meet in mid-December to play what we have written," writes Townshend, the guitarist and primary songwriter of the group. "If we move ahead from there, we may have a CD ready to release in the spring. My working title for the project -- Who2 -- is only partly tongue-in-cheek."
Despite famously proclaiming "hope I die before I get old" in the song "My Generation," The Who have frequently reunited to perform since disbanding in 1982. But the new album would be the British band's first studio recording since 1982's "It's Hard."
It's legal ...
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have filed their marriage license with the Los Angeles County registrar's office, an agency spokeswoman said.
The "Oops! ... I Did It Again" singer, 22, married Federline during a Sept. 18 ceremony in a Studio City home, but didn't immediately file the license with the county, raising questions about whether they were legally wed.
Kathy Tacawy, a registrar's spokesman, confirmed the documents were filed and the marriage was official.
Federline, 26, has said the delay in filing the paperwork was caused when the couple moved up their wedding date and lawyers had not had enough time to finish their prenup agreement.
In a recent posting on her Web site, Spears wrote: "This is the happiest I've ever been in my life. ... We are just settling into our new home and it is coming together perfectly."
Down again ...
Vincent D'Onofrio, star of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," was back in a hospital after fainting for the second time in a week.
D'Onofrio was hospitalized for two days last week when he fainted after rehearsing a strenuous scene that included climbing for the New York-based NBC drama. He had been expected to return to work Tuesday.
But he fainted again late Monday at his New York home and returned to the hospital for further observation and testing, series spokeswoman Pam Ruben Golum said.
"He's in good spirits and producers are optimistic he'll be released soon," Golum said.
Not his goal ...
Hard to believe, perhaps, that David Beckham would say no to the curvaceous Beyonce. But apparently he has. Reports out of Spain are that Becks was approached about appearing in "The Pink Panther" remake starring Steve Martin and the beautilicious singer, but said no. "I've never said that I wanted to go into movies," the soccer god said. The flick, set around the murder of a soccer coach, is due out next summer.
