Jennifer Lopez has jumped to the defense of TomKat’s wedding — and their sometimes controversial religion.
“[The wedding] was a great celebration of their love,” J. Lo told a Florida TV station. “It was good. It was beautiful.”

Notes from all over
Is Clay Aiken being framed? Compromising footage supposedly of the “American Idol” star stripping for a Web cam is actually an imposter, his irate fans claim. . . . .” Seventy-two-year-old actress Eileen Atkins wishes she’d never blabbed that Colin Farrell, 30, once hit on her. “I felt awful at exposing Colin — I was so upset at appearing to tell tales out of school but Colin was adorable,” she recently said. “He sent me flowers, came to my first night in America, stood in my dressing room and said, ‘I should be so lucky.” .. .
