WED: Legendary guitarist Eric Clapton, 56, married Melia McEnery, 25, just moments after the christening of their baby daughter, Julie Rose, at St. Mary Magdalen Church in the Surrey village of Ripley, near London, say reports on both sides of the Atlantic. After the wedding, reports the London Times, the couple visited the grave of Clapton's son, Conor, who died at the age of 4 when he accidentally fell from the window of a New York apartment . . . SWITCHED: CNN personality and legal analyst Greta Van Susteren is jumping to Fox News Channel, which in September lost its star Paula Zahn to CNN. Kate Snow will replace Van Susteren on CNN's "The Point," at least temporarily, the network said . . . PAID: Jane Leeves, 40, who plays wacky Daphne Moon on the NBC sitcom "Frasier," has signed a deal worth $30 million over the next three years, according to the BBC. Doing the math, that amounts to about $455,000 an episode. Her costar, David Hyde Pierce, 42, last month signed a deal reportedly earning him about $750,000 per episode. Series star Kelsey Grammer, 46, earns $1.6 million per episode and is TV's highest-paid sitcom star.
