The past few days have been spent camping in the mountaintops - catching sunrises, sunsets, a moon rise, going star gazing, building bonfires, hiking in the rain, being battered by freezing winds, meeting interesting hikers, eating dehydrated food and splurging on real food when in town, having the car surrounded by a bunch of Elk who decided to lick the car for some reason.. All in all, a great collection of moments and memories.

A North Carolina pastor is mad because he thinks this new boy doll will corrupt children

  • This week’s news that the American Girl doll line was introducing its first “boy” doll, a chill, new dude-doll named Logan Everett, caused waves on social media — and had one North Carolina pastor concerned that the supple minds of America’s boy babies are under attack. 

  • After learning about Logan the doll on a Good Morning America segment, Keith Ogden, a pastor at the Hill Street Baptist Church in Asheville, North Carolina, sent out an email on Wednesday to more than a hundred churchgoers bearing the subject line “KILLING THE MINDS OF MALE BABIES.” Read more.

'Gotham' Star Chris Chalk Marries Kimberley Dalton Mitchell
'Gotham' and '12 Years a Slave' actor Chris Chalk married Kimberley Dalton Mitchell in a romantic wedding ceremony in North Carolina on Saturday, April 22 — photos

Congratulations! Gotham star Chris Chalk married his fiancée, Kimberley Dalton Mitchell, in a romantic wedding ceremony on Saturday, April 22, the newlyweds confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

The happy couple, who got engaged last September, exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family members at the North Carolina Arboretum in Chalk’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina. The groom looked dapper in a white suit jacket, a white button-down shirt, a white bow tie and black pants, while his bride stunned in a lace gown and wore Jennifer Behr circlets in her hair.

Underground star Alano Miller and She’s Gotta Have It actress DeWanda Wise, who first introduced the duo, served as the best man and maid of honor, respectively.

Chalk, Mitchell and their 135 guests headed to the reception at Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville via traditional yellow school buses. “I think there’s something about a school bus that immediately humbles you. It’s fun,” Chalk tells Us. Mitchell adds, “We didn’t want people driving up the mountain after [drinking champagne at the ceremony].”

For the wedding, the newlyweds asked their guests to dress their sexiest. “Our actual instruction was, ‘Dress how you would dress if you knew you were going to make out with somebody that night,’” the 12 Years a Slave actor tells Us, quipping that he and Mitchell “had to dial it back for some people.”

During the reception, the pair and their friends danced to a mix of their favorite '90s R&B songs and today’s biggest hits. “We told our DJ, 'Pretend you’re DJ-ing for the club,’” Mitchell says. “That’s what we want. Just trying to throw the ultimate dance party.”

As for the food? Guests enjoyed shrimp and grits, duck confit, salmon, steak and a waffle and bacon bar, among other delicious treats.
