'In Touch Weekly' reports
The latest rumor making the rounds today is that Janet Jackson and her billionaire boyfriend Wissam Al Mana have gotten themselves engaged to be married. Considering that Janet Jackson is a very private person and this report comes from In Touch Weekly, I would caution that you take the news with a huge grain of salt. That being said, wouldn’t it be fantastic to see Janet Jackson wed in outrageously opulent style at some point in the future?
I see if the press couldn’t give Beyoncé a baby they’re going to try and give Damita Jo an engagement ring. Indeed, In Touch says that Janet Jackson is engaged to her billionaire boyfriend, Iranian businessman Wissam Al Mana. The couple started dating this spring and in recent weeks, the two have been spotted enjoying each other’s company at the finest resorts in the world. Allegedly, Wissam got down on one knee and proposed to Janet with a 15-carat diamond ring. Since they are “soul mates,” Janet said call me Mrs. Al Mana – allegedly. While it certainly makes sense for anyone to marry a billionaire, I’ll believe they’re getting married in ten years when Janet finally acknowledges that they’ve been on at least three dates.
Yeah … no … I ain’t buyin’ it. Besides, even if this were true … we still couldn’t be sure. Janet Jackson has been married and divorced before all without any of us knowing about it until after the fact so … yeah. Rather than getting all excited about a wedding that may never happen (or we may never even know about), let’s just send our love to Janet and Wissam in the hopes that they are very happy together.
"We got engaged two weeks ago. It felt right ..."
Um, here’s our WTF? of the day … Bristol Palin and her babydaddy Levi Johnston (who just a few months ago were locked in a bitter and not at all amicable custody battle over their son Tripp Easton Mitchell) have announced to the world on the cover of US Weekly magazine that they are engaged to be married! Yes, it turns out that love can bloom from bitter anger and can flourish in the unlikeliest of places. You may recall that just last week Levi made a huge public apology to the Palin family for all the “untruths” he made about the family and matriarch Sarah Palin especially … I guess that was the first public move toward the couple’s plan to announce their engagement:
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston reveal exclusively in the new Us Weekly that they are getting married. And, they tell Us Weekly, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been kept in the dark about their plans … until now. “We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol, 19, tells Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.” Bristol and Levi, 20 — who famously called off their previous engagement two weeks after welcoming son Tripp in December 2008 — tell Us Weekly they reconnected three months ago while working out a custody plan for their 18-month-old son. “I really thought we were over,” Levi tells Us Weekly. “So when I went, I had no hope. I think we both just started talking — and then we took Tripp for a walk.” Says Bristol, “When he left that night, we didn’t hug or kiss, but I was thinking how different it was. He texted me: ‘I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again’ … I was in shock.”
LOL!! Yeah, these two … they absolutely belong together. I always found it so odd how quickly things soured between Bristol and Levi and altho things got really nasty between Johnston and the Palin family, I kinda suspected that he would end up getting back into the Palin family fold. As soon as we found out about the public apology he extended to the family, I knew he was trying to get back into the Palin family’s good graces. The US Weekly magazine story has gone to great lengths to make it clear that while Bristol and Levi are announcing their engagement on the cover of their magazine, mama Sarah Palin was not informed of their decision to wed beforehand. I call bullshizz on that. First, there is NO WAY the couple got on the cover of US Weekly with this engagement story without Sarah Palin‘s blessing. If you consider that Palin will likely be making a bid for the US presidency in 2012, this happy reunion with Levi Johnston would work perfectly for that plan. While congratulations are in order, I think we need to see this happy news as a bit more calculated as they’d like us to believe.
Last week we learned the happy news that longtime lovebirds Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom got themselves engaged to be wed and today we get to see photos of the bride-to-be showing off her new engagement bling as she ran some errands with her mom over the weekend … check it out:
She has just got engaged to one of Hollywood’s hottest young actors. So it is no wonder Miranda Kerr was determined to show off her diamond sparkler as she visited churches in Los Angeles with her mother ahead of her wedding to Orlando Bloom. The 27-year-old lingerie model continuously flashed her new accessory as she arrived at a church with mother Therese and dog Frankie. Wearing a colourful maxi dress under a denim jacket, Miranda made sure she inspected all angles of the place of worship – prompting rumours it could be where she and Orlando choose to wed. The couple are both practising Buddhists, but may be planning to wed in a church service for their parents. Bloom was brought up as Church of England, but turned to Buddhism in his Twenties, while Kerr started practising the religion when she turned 20. She told Rolling Stone magazine last year that Buddhism has brought them closer together: ‘We share the same outlook. It brings us closer and closer together.’ The pair, who quietly started dating in 2007, confirmed their engagement earlier this month.
Rockin’ the ring, scopin’ out churches … it looks like Miranda and Orlando are really ready to tie the knot. I wouldn’t be surprised if they said their I Dos by year’s end. Ugh … they’re just so perfect for one another, couldn’t you just puke on your shoes?

After almost 3 years together, the couple are ready to say 'I Do!'
After a few years together and a few rumors to the contrary, supermodel Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom have finally decided to get themselves engaged. While it once seemed like the couple might not make it, it turns out that they were blissfully in love all the while. So I think congrats are in order!! Miranda and Orlando are gettin’ hitched!
It’s (finally!) official – Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are engaged, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. The couple, who have been dating for almost three years, have dodged multiple engagement rumors throughout their relationship. In November 2008, the model, 27, and British actor, 33, shot down a report in the Australian media that they were getting married. Six months later, the two kept fans guessing when Kerr was spotted with a sparkler on her left ring finger, though reps at the time had no comment. When the two recently spent Thanksgiving together in Morocco, Bloom told reporters he and Kerr were “just enjoying our time together now” when asked if they were getting married anytime soon. “He’s a sweetheart and that’s all I’m gonna say,” Kerr, who has talked about settling down and starting a family in the future, told PEOPLE in February 2008. “My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch,” she told Page Six Magazine in 2008. “When this is all over, that’s where I’ll be. I’ve always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen.”
OMG … just what the world needs … a pair of ridiculously good-looking people gettin’ together and making MORE ridiculously good-lookin’ people. I’m not sure who is the more lucky one … they are both scoring BIG TIME in this deal. Call me crazy, but I’m thinkin’ part of the reason that Orlando finally popped the question is because he just can’t get enough of Miranda’s adorable pet pooch. Gah! I wish them all the happiness in the world on a very long and very happy life together!
Decide to take a "break" from their relationship
Back in February of 2009, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen announced that they had gotten engaged to be wed back in December of 2008 and then the couple went out of sight, into hiding. It wasn’t until July of 2009 that Rachel surfaced sans Hayden but with engagement bling … and then the couple went out of sight, into hiding. The couple came out of hiding once earlier this year for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games but again … went out of sight, into hiding. Today we are hearing that the couple has decided to take a “break” from their relationship and put their engagement on hold. HMMMM. It sounds like the couple are dunzo, y’all!
Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are “taking a break,” a source tells UsMagazine.com. The two announced their engagement in February 2009. Bilson, 28, flashed a ringless finger to Us on the red carpet of the Take No Prisoners event in L.A. Wednesday night. When asked how wedding plans were going, she said, “No, no plans” and pointed to her bare hand. “No nothing.” The source says the couple — who co-starred in 2008 action flick Jumper — are “taking about a month off” and will then revisit their relationship to decide if they should stay together. The break began about two weeks ago, the source adds.
Yeah … these two … they are not getting married. They’ve been so weird as a couple since they got secretly engaged, I never once believed they would actually make it down the aisle. The couple, RayDen as I love to call them, are never ever seen together. I mean, I’m all for privacy but … when you never see a high profile couple together, there has to be something wrong. The fact that Rachel is no longer wearing the ring seems like a pretty good indication that the wedding is off. It’s always sad when a couple breaks up or, should I say, goes on a “break” but considering how these two never really seemed like a genuine couple to me … it’s hard to feel the loss. What do y’all think … are you sad that RayDen are practically dunzo?
The Royal Family is expected to make a June announcement
Rumors of an upcoming royal wedding have started to make the rounds now that the British Royal Family is reportedly making plans for an announcement concerning Prince William and, presumably, his longtime (on again-off again) girlfriend Kate Middleton this June. Could it be? Is it possible that Wills is finally ready to marry Kate?
Royal wedding speculation grew yesterday after claims that Buckingham Palace has ‘cleared its diary’ for a June announcement of an engagement between Prince William and Kate Middleton. According to well-connected former editor and author Tina Brown, aides plan to announce on either June 3 or 4 that a wedding will take place in November. Miss Brown was a personal friend of William’s mother Diana and has published a well-received biography of her. She said the hint had come from an anonymous – but impeccable – royal contact. ‘A high-placed source in royal circles tells me that two days in June have been mysteriously blocked out on the palace diaries – June 3 and 4,’ she wrote yesterday in a blog on her news website The Daily Beast. They suggest this is a likely date for the engagement announcement at last of the 27-year-old Prince William and his patient squeeze, 28-year-old Kate Middleton. If so, a wedding itself would probably follow in November, like the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, who married at Westminster Abbey that cold, damp November day in 1947.’
Let’s not get all excited just yet … this is a rumor about an announcement that won’t be made for a few months now. Let’s save the congratulations for when and IF any such announcement is made. That being said, I would love for these two to get hitched. I bet they would have a lavish wedding that would rival that of Prince Charles and Lady Diana (Wills‘s parents). But, I’m getting ahead of myself … this rumor is far too unsubstantiated to be taken too seriously … well, just yet. I’m happy to be cautiously optimistic tho … we shall see. What do y’all think … are Prince William and Kate are ready to say I Do?
"I want to be with her for the rest of our lives."
Congratulations, I suppose, are in order for Michael Lohan (ex-con and estranged father of Lindsay Lohan) and his latest ladylove Kate Major (former writer for Star magazine and ex-girlfriend to Jon Gosselin) because they are telling X17 that they are ready to get married! I’d be hard-pressed to think of a more unholy union but … everyone deserves to be happy, right? I guess we can be the bigger people and be happy for them, no?
Michael Lohan tells X17online exclusively that he and girlfriend Kate Major … are getting married! The pair have been dating since the end of last year when Major and Gosselin had a falling out and, subsequently, Lohan and Gosselin stopped communicating as well. Since then, Lohan and Major have been living and traveling together, cooking up projects like their upcoming road trip for charity, Crossing Borders. Lohan tells X17online Kate has been with him through lots of tough times: “Kate has been by me through all the stuff with Lindsay and trying to get help for her; she was by my side when I had my heart attack; and she just always supports me. We flew down to Florida so I could ask her father for her hand in marriage and he gave me his blessing. I know I want to be with her for the rest of our lives.” And Kate was equally gushing about her fiance. She tells X17online exclusively: “I’m so happy. Michael has always been there for me and I can’t imagine my life without him.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
Some people are just made for one another … and these two make the perfect match. Now that Daddy Lohan is focusing on his own personal life, mebbe he will stop meddling in other people’s affairs. I think this engagement/marriage/whatever will be good for him … he can mind his own bee’s wax now. My only fear is that the couple might do the unthinkable and … spawn! Yikes! Barring any such travesty, I’m happy for these two … kinda sorta. This is good news … yes?
UPDATE: It turns out that Lindsay Lohan has heard of her father’s plan to marry again, here’s what she had to say:
“I’m gonna vomit! I so didn’t need that info … Yuck!”
LOL! I suppose Michael and Kate shouldn’t expect to see L. Lo at the wedding then. OY!!

Aaron Carter‘s gettin’ married, y’all!! That’s right … take a moment to dry your tears and settle yourself … the young buck is now officially off the market. It was announced late yesterday that Carter proposed marriage to his longtime friend-turned girlfriend Maile Hochuli. Sooooo … I suppose congratulations are in order … Aaron and Maile are gettin’ hitched!
Former teen heartthrob Aaron Carter, 22, is off the market! He is engaged to marry his student/dancer girlfriend Maile Hochuli, 19. “Aaron took Maile to the movie Alice in Wonderland, which she has been dying to see,” a friend tells Star. “She didn’t get to see the end of the movie though because Aaron got down on a knee and proposed with a beautiful pear shaped diamond ring! Maile was completely overjoyed and said yes immediately!” The couple, who have been friends for years, only started seriously dating at the beginning of 2010. Aaron popped the question the last weekend in March. He was engaged to former Playboy model and Celebrity Rehab patient, Kari Ann Peniche, for a week in 2006. Although Maile currently lives in Orlando where she goes to school, she is making plans to move to Miami to be with Aaron. “Aaron and Maile have only been dating for a short period of time but they are both extremely happy,” the friend adds. “This is the happiest I have ever seen Maile.”
Yes, yes … this is all happy news … BUT, before we go poppin’ champagne bottles, let’s take this news with a bit of a grain of salt. As mentioned above, we should not forget that Carter has been engaged before — and that engagement only lasted a week. And yes, these two have been friends for “years” (apparently) but they’ve only started dating this year … and now they’re already engaged to be married? HMMM. I suppose I can understand why Maile would be thrilled to marry Aaron (she is young, after all) but I hope he treats her right. After the jump, check out the rock that Carter gave to Hochuli when he proposed to her … More »
First we learned the happy news that Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie got engaged, then we saw just how appreciative Hilary was to Mike for the lovely ring he gave her. Today we learn how much Comrie dropped on that ring for his new fiancée … and he dropped quite a lot of dough. Hilary and Mike have already made their way back to SoCal from their Hawaiian holiday (where the couple got engaged) and made a very public stop at Katsuya in Hollywood, CA for a coming out party of sorts. Hilary made sure to proudly show off the $1,000,000.00 ROCK that Mike gave her:
Hilary Duff’s NHL-playing fiancé, Mike Comrie, knows how to give good ice. A source close to the Edmonton Oilers center, 29, tells us that the engagement ring he gave the former Disney star, 22, cost—gulp—$1 million. The source tells us that Comrie bought the14-karat princess-cut sparkler in Las Vegas. After two years of dating, Comrie popped the question while he and Duff were on a recent vacation in Hawaii. A wedding isn’t the only thing these two have in the works. Our source also tells us the pair are close to buying a $10 million home in Beverly Hills. (While he probably takes home a nice paycheck from the Oilers, Comrie also happens to be an heir to Canadian home furnishings retail empire, The Brick.) A rep for Duff declined to comment. Comrie has proven himself to be a generous beau. Just a few months after they became a couple in 2007, he reportedly bought his ladylove a $100,000 Mercedes.
Yowza!! Yeah, we knew that Mike was very generous with Hilary and this phat ring is further proof of that generosity. I’ve always liked these two as a couple and I am thrilled for them. Tho, I’m actually very surprised how flashy Hilary was with her ring last night … considering she did everything she could to hide it when Hila-rie were departing Hawaii after their vacay. In any event … congrats to the happy couple!! Now the countdown begins to the day they say I Do.

Hilary tries to hide her ring, fails
Last Friday we learned that happy news that popstar/actress Hilary Duff and hockey player Mike Comrie got themselves engaged to be wed while they vacationed in Hawaii (and over the weekend we saw just how thankful Hil D. was to get her fat ring) and today we get to see photos of Hila-rie making their way home from their holiday:
Hilary was well aware of the paparazzi presence at the airport as the couple tried to leave so she did her best to try and hide the big, fat diamond she was wearing on her finger … apparently, Hilary was feeling more shy at the airport than she was on the balcony of the couple’s hotel. She did manage to inadvertently flash her ring tho — check out the size of her new engagement rock after the jump … More »
