Reports of Jennifer Aniston’s looming nuptials are heating up. Details are sketchy, “Jen is going to great lengths to keep the wedding details a secret so it does not become a huge media circus like her wedding to Brad [Pitt].” This time around, Jennifer and fiancé Justin Theroux may have an intimate ceremony on the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai. We do know that Jen’s schedule opens up after this weekend. The movie she’s been shooting wraps on Friday, with a traditional party for cast and crew. Justin will be there, and he may bring his younger brother who could be acting as the best man.

Remember actress Nikki Cox? She was on the TV show "Las Vegas"? She’s a pretty good looking girl. Well, she hasn't done any movies or TV shows in a couple years, and we may have discovered why.

She obviously had some stuff injected into her lips…or should I say over-injected. Her face looks puffy, too, so maybe she also got some botox. And she wasn't wearing any makeup. But still, the difference seems REALLY drastic. Click here to see the pics.
