UPDATED: I reported back on January 16th that indicted and imprisoned Hollywood P.I. Anthony Pellicano and ex-wife Kat Pellicano, who divorced in 2002 after an 18-year marriage, were going to re-marry. Well, they tied the knot on Friday. A source tells me that several journalists were at the magistrate’s court, including People magazine’s Frank Swertlow and the Los Angeles Times‘ Chuck Philips. “Phillips [who] is the guy Pellicano calls every time he sneezes was not only there but the ONLY journalist there not taking notes. Finally, Pellicano said hello only to two journalists there, Frank Swertlow and Chuck Philips. In fact, Philips and Pellicano saluted and smiled to each other.” Fox 411 online columnist Roger Friedman says the AP’s Linda Deutsch and The New York Times‘ Pellicano probe team of David Halbfinger and Allison Hope Weiner also were there, noting: “Of the reporters who were present, only Deutsch immediately filed a story after the ceremony. The other outlets have yet to make a peep.” There’s continued speculation that the remarriage means Kat Pellicano, who’s been looking for a book deal, now won’t testify against her ex when his trial begins August 22nd. Other guests included the couple’s four daughters and Pellicano attorney Steven Gruel.
