Kameyama Fusayo, Nickelback, Hangry & Angry

Talento Kameyama Fusayo (photo left) died at a hospital in Kanagawa Prefecture on Monday after suffering from cardiac arrest at her home. She was just 42. Kameyama joined the Yoshimoto Kogyo talent agency in the mid-1980s and performed as a solo comedienne. In 1989 she formed a manzai duo with Satomi Masato, her Yoshimoto mentor and formerly one half of the popular duo The Bonchi. The duo won the Kamigata Manzai Taisho award in 1999 but split up after Kameyama married and became pregnant in 2001. She later worked as a TV commentator and gave talks about sex education.

• Visual-kei pop duo Hangry & Angry got to hang with visiting Canadian rockers Nickelback yesterday. Former Morning Musume members Yoshizawa Hitomi (24) and Ishikawa Rika (24) presented the four members of the band with traditional yukata at their show at Studio Coast in Shin-Kiba, west of Tokyo. The duo, formed last year, will start their first nationwide concert tour in January.

• Itoh Misaki (32) had a wedding ceremony in Hawaii yesterday, this time for real. The last time the actress was at the Calvary by the Sea church in Honolulu, it was to film a scene for the movie “Life – Tengokude Kimini Aetara” in which she played the wife of surfer Iijima Natsuki (1966-2005). But yesterday she walked down the aisle for real, wearing a wedding dress designed by her friend, talento Kanda Uno (34). Itoh and Enomoto Yoshinori (42), CEO of major pachinko company Kyoraku Sangyo, registered their marriage in Japan last week. But they decided to hold their ceremony in Hawaii, where they first met a year ago as bridesmaid and best man at the wedding of actress Uematsu Mami (32). They were joined yesterday by about 100 family and friends.
