Kate’s Wedded Bliss * Rod’s Life Set to Music * A Royal Birthday in Monte Carlo

Of course you’ve heard that Kate Winslet and director Sam Mendes quietly married in the West Indies in an intimate ceremony attended by only three close friends and Kate’s daughter from a former marriage, two-year-old Mia. The loving couple is honeymooning in Europe at the moment and planning to extend the romantic interlude for as long as they possibly can. They would like to travel around the world for a year and come back with a baby brother or a sister for little Mia — but is there really time for that sort of thing? Kate is supposed to start filming “Romance and Cigarettes,” written and directed by John Turturro and co-starring James Gandolfini and Susan Sarandon, sometime in early autumn. Mendes has commitments, too. “We’re very happy, unbelievably happy,” says Kate. “It’s one of those unexplainable things that we’re together.” All they need now is that slow boat to China.

Those 63 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes perky Reese Witherspoon wears in “Legally Blonde 2” were specially made and designed out of materials other than leather. You see, in this movie the pink-outfit-loving blonde who looks dumb but isn’t goes to Washington as an animal rights lobbyist. And she takes it all the way, even matching her dog’s costume to her own. Reese will wear the pretty shoes in real life and has practically had to build a closet in her house just for them. It’s a hard life. But somebody’s got to wear Jimmy Choos.

Rod Stewart is coming to town this weekend to sing at a private party in Southampton. The rocker is excited because he is to be the subject of a new musical opening in London in October and possibly heading to Broadway a year later. It’s called “Tonight’s the Night” and includes 22 of his greatest hits, like “Maggie May” and “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” The theme revolves around Rod’s notorious love life. Remember Alana Hamilton Stewart, Britt Ekland, Caprice Bourret, Kelly Ember and his latest estranged wife, Rachel Hunter?
