Study ‘canoodle‘ NOW in VocabNetwork’s Love is in the Air studylist.

Celebrity gossip has always been popular, especially when it’s about two stars caught kissing and cuddling in an expression of love.

Celebrities who are known to be an item are often not shy about showing it, canoodling in public where their actions can be caught on camera by paparazzi.  But when there are rumors that a couple has split up, every touch is magnified: was that just a friendly touch, or something more?

In the United States, some amount of canoodling with your sweetheart in public is socially acceptable.  In other places, all PDA (public displays of affection) are frowned upon.  How do you feel about it?

Weddings are meant to be peaceful, happy events, but Hulk Hogan’s wedding took a dramatic turn when a member of his entourage got into a noisy heated situation or quarrel with a member of the paparazzi.

The altercation happened because the camera-holder was trying to snap pictures of Hogan’s big day.  No punches were thrown, however, so the altercation ended without violence.
