• Divorcing: Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin, 81, and third wife, Lois, 70-something. The flamboyant couple, who married in a huge ceremony on Valentine’s Day 1988 (they kissed to “Fly Me to the Moon”), were regulars on D.C. party circuit. But the marriage ended abruptly this week, as first reported by TMZ: Aldrin filed for divorce Wednesday in Los Angeles citing “irreconcilable differences,” confirmed his attorney Ronald Brot, one day after the couple separated.

• Sticker shock: Hugh Hefner, 85, slapped a big red “Runaway Bride” sticker on the new Playboy cover featuring ex-fiancee Crystal Harris, 25, who called off their wedding this week. “Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover,” Hef tweeted Wednesday. “Look for it on newsstands.”
