WEDDINGS Somebody’s suddenly swoonin’. On Feb. 18, actress Kathy Griffin (of MTV’s Kathy’s So-Called Reality), 37, and computer administrator Matthew Moline, 32, exchanged vows — the first time for both. The rowdy redhead walked the aisle to Night Ranger’s headbanger ballad ”Sister Christian.” The bride’s former costar Brooke Shields was maid of honor.

AILING FriendsMatthew Perry, 31, is back in rehab. According to a statement, Perry, who fought an addiction to painkillers in 1997, ”entered an undisclosed rehabilitation hospital” at his doctors’ urging. (His publicist did not disclose the nature of his illness or treatment.) At press time, it was unclear how Perry’s indefinite leave of absence would affect Friends, which was to include a Chandler-Monica wedding during May sweeps. But Warner Bros. Television insists production on the season’s four remaining episodes will continue as normal, with scenes shot around Perry’s absence. Filming on the Paramount comedy Servicing Sarah, with Elizabeth Hurley, was also halted, though a set source insists that contrary to press reports, this was not due to his illness but to bad weather in Dallas, where the flick is filming. The shooting schedule will be reordered to accommodate Perry.

SPLITS The torch has burned out. Citing irreconcilable differences, Survivor host Jeff Probst, 39, filed for divorce in L.A. from psychotherapist Shelley Wright Probst, 34, on Feb. 23, two days after their fifth anniversary.

ARRESTED All My Children‘s Michael Nader, 56, got clipped Feb. 24 at Barber Shop, a Manhattan club.

He was charged with selling a controlled substance, a felony, police said. Nader was arrested in 1997 for drunk driving. His spokeswoman had no comment.

DENIED Despite recent reports in a Brazilian magazine, Leonardo DiCaprio, 26, and hot model Gisele Bundchen, 20, are not engaged. ”Absolutely, completely not true,” says a rep for the brunet bombshell, thus sinking a titanic rumor. Adds DiCaprio’s spokesman, ”As always, we never, ever comment on anything to do with his personal life.”
