Robert Kennedy Jr. and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actress Cheryl Hines are planning to tie the knot in a wedding at the Kennedy compound in Massachusetts.

Kennedy’s cousin Patrick Kennedy, a former congressman, says the wedding is planned for this afternoon at Ethel Kennedy’s home in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod. He says many members of the family are planning to attend.

The 60-year-old Robert Kennedy is an environmental lawyer and activist who lives in New York. He is son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy and the late Sen. Edward Kennedy. It will be his third marriage.

Hines has been nominated twice for Emmys for her role playing Larry David’s wife on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” She also appeared in the ABC series “Suburgatory.”

Trip to track may cost Cassidy

A horse racing tweet prompted prosecutors to halt a court hearing at which a lawyer for ’70s heartthrob David Cassidy was supposed to accept a plea deal on the singer’s behalf.

Cassidy was charged last summer with driving while intoxicated in the town of Schodack, New York, near Albany. Because he lives in Florida, prosecutors agreed to let his lawyer appear in court for him Wednesday.

But a tweet by the New York Racing Association said Cassidy was at Saratoga Race Course, 40 miles north of Schodack.

A prosecutor told the Daily Gazette of Schenectady that officials were “disturbed” to learn Cassidy was nearby but apparently unable to appear. Cassidy’s lawyer said his client may not have known the timing of his court date.

A new court date is being scheduled.
