Disney World really is the place where dreams come true
A couple of weeks ago, Prince Harry was in Orlando for the Invictus Games, but it wasn’t all work. He had some free time and, like anyone would, he went on some rides at Disney World. And while Harry in Disney is a story in itself, it was the fact that the last time he was there was with his brother Prince William and his late mother, Princess Diana, that made this visit something special.
Harry went on several rides this time, but it was his jaunt on Splash Mountain that garnered attention. The first time he went on the log ride, Harry and Will were caught on camera screaming with what we presume is excitement (OK, William looks more terrified than happy), while their mom was in the back row of the log, ducking. And this time? Well Harry was like a kid this time around too. Classic.
Eva Longoria is a married woman, again
Eva Longoria and José Antonio Bastón made it official in a sunset ceremony in Mexico. Unlike many celeb weddings, no phones were confiscated and images and videos of the nups were all over social media.
From Eva herself:
After the vows were exchanged:

… to David’s wife, Victoria, who wasn’t just there as his plus one. Vic, who is a pal of Eva’s, designed the wedding dress.
Ricky Martin was living la vida loca with a couple other wedding buds.

And Melanie Griffith shared a video of the fireworks that capped off the night.
According to People, the whole thing was planned by Bastón’s sister, Rosalía, and the ceremony was performed in both English and Spanish. Longoria had no bridesmaids but Bastón’s daughters, Tali and Mariana, walked down the aisle before the couple.
Eva and José’s first dance was Carlo Vives’ “Voiví a Nacer” and her Desperate Housewives co-star Vanessa Williams surprised her friend with a performance of her hit song, “Save the Best for Last.” Aw. Congrats to the beautiful couple.
Angelina Jolie is a professor now
Angie’s an actress, director, producer, humanitarian, wife and mother of six kids. The Queen even recognized her for her contribution to the British foreign policy objective to end sexual violence in conflict, giving her the honorary title of Dame Commander. So seems almost fitting that Ange has been named one of the London School of Economics and Political Science’s new visiting professors. Beginning this fall, she will be giving lectures as part of the school’s new Master’s program in Women, Peace and Security, and will take part in expert workshops and public events as well as beginning her own research. Yup. Perfect.
“I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s program. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict,” she said in a statement.
“I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
All right. Where do we sign up?
Kris Jenner wants to change her name back to Kardashian
In a deleted scene from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris dropped a bomb on Khloe, telling her daughter that she plans on swapping out “Jenner” and replacing it with “Kardashian” — saying that she’s “the original Kardashian.”
Predictably, Khloe tells her mom that it’s a crazy idea and suggests that she go back to her maiden name. But Kris isn’t having it, even when Khloe says it’s an insult to Kendall and Kylie. “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”
Captain America and Iron Man made up to make a fan’s dream come true
Pepper Potts may not be in the latest Marvel movie but that doesn’t mean Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t have love for Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. Gwynnie first took notice of Ryan Wilcox, an 18-year-old who was diagnosed with leukemia for a second time. He shared on social media that meeting the Avengers stars would be incredible so Paltrow promised she would enlist them to go for a visit.
Well, on Monday, Goop made good on her promise and she accompanied RDJ and Evans to San Diego.

Before the meeting, Evans had sent him a video encouraging the kid to “keep fighting.” The trio spent the afternoon hanging with Wilcox and his family and signed autographs.
Pfft. Who says you need superpowers to be a hero?
