Could the secret to a successful Hollywood marriage be…paddleball? The honeymoon may have ended in 1997, but David Duchovny and Téa Leoni were still taking a good whack at wedded bliss in Malibu. One of their dogs ruffereed.

Story tellers: Looking very happy to be there, Michelle Pfeiffer (above, with producer-hubby David E. Kelley) was the belle of the L.A. premiere of her film The Story of Us. Also at the fete, Rita Wilson (below), who plays Pfeiffer’s best friend, rubbed not one but two heads—father Al Wilson’s and costar Bruce Willis‘s—for luck.

Divine Providence: Melina Kanakaredes and Seth Peterson—who aren’t siblings but play them on TV—wore matching smiles when their NBC family drama, Providence, was honored at a Los Angeles benefit. The bash raised more than $170,000 for the homeless.

Lovebirdies: Country crooners and new sweethearts Amy Grant and Vince Gill, who once sang about a “House of Love ” relaxed on a golf cart of love in Oklahoma City, where they were making the rounds publicly as a couple for the first time

Scottish speedster Dario Franchitti rode off with the win…and Judd.

Slowed but not stopped by a fractured fibula, Double Jeopardy’s Ashley Judd took a piggyback victory lap with a crew member after boyfriend Dario franchitti won the Gold Coast Indy race in Surfers Paradise, Australia.

Rebecca De Mornay and her beau, actor Patrick O’Neal (son of Ryan), must have left their nearly 2-year-old daughter Sophia home with a nanny (didn’t they see The Hand That Rocks the Cradle?) to go to the L.A. premiere of The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc.

You’re never too young to accessorize: Elle Macpherson and her 20-month-old son Flynn bandanna’d together during a day at the beach in Venice, Calif. The model mom will guest star on Friends during November sweeps as the new roommate of Joey (Matt LeBlanc).
