Happy Thursday, readers! Did you know that on this date, back in 1966, the premiere episode of Star Trek was broadcast on NBC? If you’re a Trekkie, you probably already knew that, right? Anyways, in today’s celebrity birthdays, a ‘Home Improvement’ kid turns 30, a ‘Fine Young Cannibal’ is 51, and a ‘Fall Guy’ gal is 51. Guess who below!
Happy Birthday, Brooke Burke! The Dancing With The Stars co-host is 40 years old today. The newly married Mrs. Charvet pulled off a super secret wedding last month where the couple’s mothers didn’t even know about the nuptials. She said in a blog post about her wedding, “Somehow in my 39th year, I felt incredibly peaceful, certain, and blissfully happy. In my soul, I was already married. Making the spiritual commitment to exchange vows in our favorite place, in front our four children, with my soul mate seemed like a real life fairytale.” The season premiere of DWTS will air Monday, September 19th on ABC.
Happy Birthday, Pink! The Raise Your Glass singer is 32 years old today. 2011 has been a good year for the singer, also known as Alecia Moore. In June, Pink gave birth to her daughter, Willow Sage Hart, and she and hubby Carey Hart couldn’t be happier. Pink recently lent her voice to Happy Feet Two, as Gloria. The movie is due out in theaters November 18th.
Happy Birthday, David Arquette! The Scream actor is 40 years old today. How do you think Arquette will do on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars?
