After five days of captivity in Syria, cutie-patootie super-reporter Richard Engel and three of his crew members have been freed. According to the New York Times: “While none of the crew members suffered any physical injuries, there was ‘psychological pressure,’ Mr. Akyavas told NTV. He said they were blindfolded, handcuffed, and ‘every now and then had guns pointed on our heads. It was not pleasant.’” On the Today show this morning, my future husband said, “They made us choose which one of us would be shot first, and when we refused there were mock shootings. They pretended to shoot (my camera man) Ghazi several times.” Thank God they didn’t.

TMZ has the first pic of former kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart and her adorable husband of one day, Matthew Gilmour, as they walk hand-in-hand on the north shore of Oahu. “Smart and 22-year-old Gilmour dated for a year … and were engaged for a month … before tying the knot,” sez the web site. They look really cute together, dont’t they? And gosh, you just hope everything works out for them.
