Ever feel guilty about spending too much money on an outfit? Well, this should make you feel better. Several movie costumes went on auction recently and are expected to bring in some serious cash. For example, the red suit worn by Mike Myers in Austin Powers will go on sale and is expected to bring in at least $6,000. Halle Berry‘s X-Men black leather battle suit she wore as the character Storm will be sold for around $20,000. And finally, the Superman costume worn by Christopher Reeve in 1978 is also on the auction block and will likely sell for at least $60,000. Now… do you feel better about what you spent at the mall?
What happens to a couple after a huge public scandal? Sometimes… they actually make it through to the other side. A recent issue of People magazine has an interesting profile of Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, who was pregnant with their first child when the Twitter sexting scandal hit the news in June 2011. Since then, their baby Jordan was born and the couple have saved their marriage. Huma invited a reporter into their home for the interview saying “My husband did a really stupid thing. It was an extremely painful time. But there was love and a commitment to this marriage. It took a lot of work to get where we are today, but I want people to know we’re a normal family.” For now, Anthony Weiner has no plans to reenter politics but also doesn’t rule it out. He said that right now the only “next steps” he is planning on are his son’s first.

It looks like things are still going strong for Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. They’ve been dating now for about six months. The actor has been spotted recently with Michelle and her 6-year-old daughter Matilda for a little shopping in Manhattan and then a Broadway musical. Jason picked up Matilda during the curtain call so she could see the stage. (Matilda is the daughter of the late actor Heath Ledger.)
