'Boy Meets World' stars wed one day after the other

Apparently love was in the air in Hollywood over the weekend — three celebrity weddings back-to-back-to-back.

Saturday made it official: Cory, Topanga is no longer your girl. ( Via ABC / “Boy Meets World”)

“Boy Meets World” star Danielle Fishel married longtime boyfriend Tim Belusko in Los Angeles Saturday. (Via The Hollywood Gossip)

They have yet to post wedding pics. Well, to social media, at least. (Via Instagram / Danielle Fishel)

But People magazine reports she wore a strapless Enzoani gown and was escorted down the aisle by her father. (Via YouTube / A Formal Affair)

There were reportedly about 200 people watching as the 32-year-old said “I do” to 25-year-old Belusko. (Via People)

And just one day later, Fishel’s longtime co-star and friend Rider Strong got hitched. He played Cory’s best friend, Shawn, on “Boy Meets World.” (Via ABC / “Boy Meets World”)

Stong told People, “I’m incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime,” Alexandra Barreto.

But what’s even sweeter than the actual wedding is the ring he used to propose.

Strong hand-made it — yeah ladies, get jealous. He reportedly spent weeks carving it out of wax, casting it in white gold and placing it in a wooden box handmade by his dad. Aww. (Via Calvin’s Fine Jewelry)

And earlier this week, a high-profile Hollywood couple had a low-profile courthouse wedding. Yes, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally tied the knot on Thursday.

"The couple reportedly went to a Los Angeles courthouse but was convinced by the clerk to tie the knot right then and there." (Via KCOY)

This after a four-year engagement and the birth of their now 7-month-old daughter, Lincoln. So why the wait? (Via E! Online)

Well, in 2012 Bell told Us Weekly, “I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends. It’s just kind of rude to invite everyone to a party for a rite not everyone can hold.”

But when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional this summer, Bell popped the question to Shepard on Twitter — he did the asking the first time around in 2009. (Via USA Today)

Bell said the couple gets enough attention in their daily lives and the private pen-and-paper nuptials were all they needed.

  • Two new strains of fentanyl are so deadly that they may be immune to naloxone, also known as Narcan, the drug used to save those who have overdosed, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday in a news release.  >> Watch the news report here >> Police say Narcan prevented them from charging man with DUI Acrylfentanyl and tetrahydrofuran fentanyl were not identified by the GBI until March, when the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office submitted the drugs as part of forensic evidence. A month later, officials investigated four overdoses that killed two people in the county. At the time, authorities thought the overdoses were caused by a bad batch of deadly drugs such as heroin or fentanyl. >> Mom who lost son to opioid overdose shares heartbreaking photo Officials have not said if the two new strains are connected to the overdoses.  “It is not known how the human body will react to both drugs since they are not intended for human or veterinary use,” GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said. “The drugs can be absorbed through the skin and are considered highly dangerous.” >> Police officer overdoses after accidental contact with fentanyl on traffic stop One of the drugs – acrylfentanyl – was banned in Georgia in April, she said, and has been on the GBI watch list for months.  “It’s a very potent drug and there’s a high potential it has already killed people in Georgia,” Miles told WSB-TV. “There are multiple reports that (the drugs are) showing resistance to naloxone.”  >> Mass overdose kills four, a dozen more hospitalized in Georgia The new strains come three weeks after four people were killed and dozens suffered from overdoses in a two-day span in Middle Georgia. The chief medical officer at Navicent Health in Macon told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a new drug in the area was being sold as Percocet. It’s possible the drug could be homemade. 
  • A college student from Gwinnett County is doing his part to help fight hunger using technology.  Jack Griffin, a junior at the University of Michigan, was just a sophomore at Peachtree Ridge High School when he was touched by a news story showing kids his age homeless and in need of food.  “It’s such an invisible problem that, if you’re not impacted by it, it’s so hard to see,” he tells WSB.  While trying to find a place to volunteer, he found the search so cumbersome he knew it would be difficult for those in need to find them.   So, while still in high school, Griffin created the non-profit FoodFinder to help people locate nearby food pantries or free meals. He raised money to develop a website and then added a phone app last year.  “Eighty percent of these kids still have access to a phone. Sixty percent still have access to a smart phone. It’s not an iPhone 7-type deal, but they are going to have access to the internet because it’s a huge lifeline,” says Griffin.  He says organizations that offer food programs including the USDA have partnered with Foodfinder to make sure information on location and times are available on the app.  “There is about a thousand free resources all across the state of Georgia,” he says, with that number reaching more than 3,000 right now to make sure kids are fed during the summer months.  Griffin, who is a business major and community action minor, is working this summer to get the word out about the app and increase access to free meals. 
  • A grand jury indicted former DeKalb County Commissioner Stan Watson with theft Tuesday after he receiving about $3,000 in advances for government trips that he never took. Watson, 63, faces a single count of theft by conversion in DeKalb Superior Court, according to DeKalb District Attorney Sherry Boston’s office. Watson withdrew advance checks in January 2016 for conferences in Chicago and Savannah, but then he resigned from office in March 2016 to run for DeKalb Tax Commissioner. “The state alleges the expense money was then converted to personal use and not repaid until approximately one year later, well after Watson’s resignation,” according to a press release from Boston’s office. “County policy requires any funds advanced for travel but not actually used for said travel be returned to the county immediately.” A warrant was issued for Watson’s arrest, and he’s expected to surrender to authorities, the release said. Watson didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment. Exclusive to subscribers: Read the full story on myAJC.com. MYAJC.COM: REAL JOURNALISM. REAL LOCAL IMPACT.

  • Chile's biggest asset at the Confederations Cup isn't the dazzling attacking skill of Alexis Sanchez, or even Arturo Vidal's creativity. It's down-to-earth goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who saves Chile when its hyper-aggressive pressing is no use at all — at the penalty spot. Recently recovered from injury, ridiculed by some fans in England following an erratic season at Manchester City, the 34-year-old was imperious in Wednesday's penalty shootout win over Portugal, stopping every shot he faced. He also made a key stop early in the game, which finished 0-0 after extra time. Bravo isn't charismatic — he talked calmly of feeling 'very balanced' after making the three saves that sent Chile to the Confederations Cup final. But he is the perfect symbol for a Chilean team which, despite its reputation for a swashbuckling attacking style, is happy to grind out wins when the pressure's on. For three years in a row now, Chile has specialized in tough, gritty wins over soccer's superstars. This time, it was Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal, but in 2015 and 2016 it was Lionel Messi and Argentina who fell to Chile on penalties in consecutive Copa America finals, both after goalless draws. Those are the only major trophies Chile has ever won. Chile's style is still based on the aggressive approach of Marcelo Bielsa, who coached the team between 2007 and 2011, but that shouldn't be mistaken for recklessness. 'We were playing with our head as well as our heart,' Bravo said, and coach Juan Antonio Pizzi elaborated on the meticulous video research while allowed Bravo to predict where Portugal's penalties would go. 'You never know exactly what is going to happen, but you can prepare,' Pizzi said. 'Our goalkeeper could foresee what was going to happen and what the player was going to do.' Chile can win in style as a 7-0 demolition of Mexico last year showed, but its heavy emphasis on constant high pressing can produce a stalemate. The Chileans tired themselves out against Portugal — easy to do when it's your fourth game in 12 days — but the constant pressure also forced Portugal to tire, slowing the pace of much of the second half and extra time. For Bravo, though, the key is rock-solid self-belief ahead of a final Sunday against either Germany or Mexico. 'The secret of our success is that we're very constant,' he said. 'We never stop believing in ourselves and we want to do everything we can to win.
