When people find themselves in a police stand-off, they usually demand a large pile of cash, a getaway car or a plane ticket, but a North Carolina man clearly had other things on his mind.
61 year-old Fredrick Denney caused an unspecified disturbance at a Hampton Inn hotel in Belmont, NC over the weekend before barricading himself into a hotel room and refusing to cooperate with police.
He then lied to the police about possessing a gun and refused to leave the room until certain demands were met.

And Paris Hilton as his bride.
A tense stand-off then ensued, and dragged on for several hours before Denny was finally pepper-sprayed and taken into custody. He was later taken to hospital for a mental evaluation, and his bond was set at $90,000. He now faces charges for public intoxication and disorderly behaviour.
What a strange world we live in!

Ever since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got engaged in April, details of the upcoming nuptials have been kept very private, until now!
Angelina was in Bosnia yesterday at the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival, where she was honoured for her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey, a love story set during the Bosnian war. She decided to use this opportunity to step out for the first time at a public event wearing the $500,000 tablet-shaped engagement ring custom designed by jeweler Robert Procrop and Brad Pitt.

Ever since Kate Middleton received Princess Diana’s blue sapphire ring on her engagement to Prince William, the trend of coloured engagement rings has re-emerged.
Since then, the popularity of coloured gemstones has increased dramatically, and many celebrities have followed Kate’s example and chosen unique rings for their own engagements.Halle Berryrecently chose an emerald green stone, Jessica Simpson wears a ruby ring, and Carrie Underwood owns a yellow diamond ring. Previously, Jennifer Lopez and Carmen Electra have sported unusual engagement rings, including a black diamond, and Anna Kournikova currently wears a $2.5 million pink diamond ring given to her by Enrique Iglesias.
Coloured gemstones are the obvious choice for the discerning bride looking for something alternative and beautiful. Often set in a cluster of traditional clear diamonds, these striking stones are a real statement of individuality and uniqueness, and make for a truly distinctive engagement ring.
