With Us Weekly, Star, Life & Style, InTouch and a myriad of other celebrity weeklies on the newsstands, it's hard for any one of them to really make an impression. British tabloid, OK!, recently launched a US edition to a lukewarm reception, despite landing cover stories with stars like Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie. Now the magazine is struggling to sell and desperate for a story that could win it much-needed readers. That's where Ashton and Demi come in. OK! has offered the couple $3 million for the exclusive rights to photos from their recent secret wedding ceremony. According to the New York Daily News, the Kutchers "will donate OK!'s hefty wedding gift to Habitat for Humanity, presumably to benefit victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita." And OK! isn't stopping with Ashton and Demi. They've offered a similar deal to Britney Spears and Kevin Federline for the first official pictures of their son, Sean. The deals have other tabloids laughing. A source at a weekly told NYDN, "I'm just stunned. They're desperate! They can't save for a rainy day because the rainy day's here. They need something to get some attention fast." Whether OK! is the first magazine to get these photos or another one is the lucky recipient, rest assured: you'll find copies of the pics on the Bosh shortly thereafter.
