Tony Romo & Candice Crawford Are Gettin’ Hitched!

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback proposes to Chace Crawford's sister

Congratulations are in order for Dallas Cowboys quarterback (and famed ex-boyfriend of Jessica Simpson) Tony Romo and Candice Crawford because today we learn that the couple have gotten themselves engaged to be married! As you may recall, Tony and Candice (younger sister to Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford and 2008 Miss Missouri) started dating shortly after Tony and Jessica broke up … and, just like Jessica and her new fiancée Eric Johnson, have decided to get themselves hitched!

Candice Crawford received a very special gift from Tony Romo for her 24th birthday this year: a ring and a marriage proposal. Crawford, pageant queen and KDAF-TV anchor, was celebrating the milestone with Romo, 30, and her family at Five Sixty restaurant in Dallas on Thursday when he popped the question, reports the Dallas Morning News … The Dallas Cowboys quarterback – who broke up with Jessica Simpson in July 2009, just before he started dating Crawford – isn’t the first of Simpson’s exes to announce an engagement recently. Nick Lachey, her husband of three years, proposed to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo in November – just about a week before Simpson announced an engagement of her own to NFL player Eric Johnson. Earlier this year, Simpson said she has no hard feelings for Romo during an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, admitting she still cheers him on from the sidelines. “Tony is great – still a friend of mine,” she said. “I still look at his cute butt in the outfit – uniform.”

Hurray!! Everyone is getting married! This works out best for everyone involved, don’t it? Local Dallas, TX affiliat station KDAF-TV has an exclusive fist look at Candice‘s new engagement bling from fiancée Tony Romo. Check it out, after the jump … More »

Kim Zolciak & Kroy Biermann Are Gettin’ Hitched!

So says RadarOnline

Last week we learned that Kim Zolciak, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is pregnant with her first child with new beau and Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy Biermann and today we learn that Kim and Kroy are planning to get hitched! Altho the couple have yet to make the news public, RadarOnline reports that the couple are, indeed, engaged to be wed and are planning to tie the knot before their baby boy is born next year:

Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is engaged to Atlanta Falcons star Kroy Biermann, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. The couple – who are expecting their first baby together next year – have not gone public with the news yet, but they plan to marry before the popular reality TV star gives birth. Zolciak, 32, recently confirmed that she was in fact expecting a child with the 25-year-old NFL player following weeks of speculation that she was pregnant. A source told RadarOnline.com: “Kim and Kroy are engaged, and only a few people know about it. They wanted to announce it in a national magazine, but Kim was so excited that she told a couple of close friends about it. Obviously, they are both really happy about both the baby and their engagement and cannot wait to start their new lifes together. Kroy proposed to her and bought her a substantial ring which she has shown to a few friends, although she is not wearing it in public yet. Kim is actually in her second trimester with her pregnancy now, and the couple are still in talks about getting their own spin-off reality show. And if this does not happen then she will want to re-negotiate her terms on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta if her wedding and new baby were to be featured on the show. The other cast members are publicly backing Kim and Kroy but privately there are some jealousies because Kim is very much in the spotlight right now and not everyone is happy about that.”

You may recall that just a few days ago we saw a photo of Kim smoking a cigarette at an Atlanta Falcons game while she was in the first trimester of her pregnancy so it is my hope that now she is planning a wedding, she’ll be too bizzy to smoke cigarettes while pregnant. You know, Kim is fun to watch on Real Housewives but I can’t help but feel sorry first, for the new baby growing in her uterus and second, for Kroy who is only 25 years old. Kim is a larger than life personality who always needs the focus to be on her … I can’t help but feel that her baby and her much younger husband-to-be suffer because of her selfish needs. If you consider the fact that we will all be privy to their new life together because it will be broadcast on TV … well, I honestly do feel bad for Biermann and his not yet born baby boy. I guess we’ll see how all of this actually plays out on the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In the meantime, I guess we should express our congrats to the happy couple … right?

Prince William & Kate Middleton Will Marry In April 2011

A wedding date has been set!

A week ago today we learned the joyous news that Prince William of Wales proposed marriage to Kate Middleton after 8 years together. Just a couple of days later, Kate was spotted paying an after hours visit to Westminster Abbey and it was presumed that she was scoping out the church as the possible site of the couple’s nuptials … but at that time, no wedding date was announced. Today we not only learn that the couple will, in fact, marry at Westminster Abbey but that the wedding will take place on April 29, 2011:

Britain’s Prince William will marry Kate Middleton on Friday, April 29, at Westminster Abbey in London, the royal family said Tuesday, ending a week of speculation about the date and venue. “The royal family will pay for the wedding, following the precedence set by the marriages of the prince and princess of Wales in 1981 and Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1947,” Prince Charles’ spokeswoman said in a statement. The government will meet any wider transportation or security-related costs, Prime Minister David Cameron said. The thousand-year-old Westminster Abbey has been the favorite of royal fans, the media, and bookies ever since the couple announced their engagement a week ago. Westminster Abbey was founded in 960, with the present Gothic church dating to 1245. Since 1066, it has been the “coronation church” — the place where kings and queens are crowned when they ascend to the throne. Its close ties to the monarchy means it has also been the site of many royal weddings and funerals. Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip there in 1947, when she was still a princess; her father, King George VI, got married there in 1923. The funeral service for Princess Diana, William’s mother, took place there in 1997. Middleton was photographed leaving the Abbey last week with her parents, and British newspapers reported they had a private after-hours tour. The wedding day will be a national holiday, Cameron said, though Scottish lawmakers still must approve the measure because Scotland has its own devolved government. “The wedding of Kate and William will be a happy and momentous occasion,” Cameron said in a statement. “We want to mark the day as one of national celebration. A public holiday will ensure the most people possible will have a chance to celebrate on the day” … The palace had already said the wedding would take place in the spring or summer of 2011, but it refused to give a firm date. It’s unclear whether the couple chose April 29 because it coincides with St. Catherine’s Day on the Anglican calendar of saints. The palace has been referring to Middleton as “Catherine” instead of her usual “Kate.”

Wee!! And now we know what date to look forward to for the royal wedding! There is no question in my mind that the wedding date is meant to correspond with St. Catherine’s Day … it’s just so perfect. We are now about 5 months away from the royal wedding of Prince Wills and his princess-to-be Kate Middleton. The eyes of the world will be trained on Westminster Abbey on the morning of April 29 … I cannot wait!!

See The Place Where Prince William & Kate Middleton Got Engaged

Cabin Fever turns into Love Sickness

We’ve been hearing a lot about how Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton while the couple were on holiday in Kenya, Africa last month but today according to People magazine and The Sun, we are hearing that the couple got engaged on October 20 in a tiny cabin atop Mount Kenya. Here is our first look at the little romantic spot in Africa where Prince Wills asked Katie kins to be his future wife/princess/queen:

Recalling the moment he asked for her hand in marriage, a happy Prince William said he had whisked Kate Middleton “up somewhere nice in Kenya” in order to display his “romantic side.” Now, the exact spot can be pinpointed: a cabin hut some 10,500 feet above sea level on the side of Mount Kenya, Africa. He and Catherine, as she signed herself in the visitor’s book, were there for one night on Oct. 20, reports the U.K. Sun Describing their fishing trip on Lake Rutundu – but providing no hint that they became engaged – Kate wrote in the book that she had a “wonderful 24 hours! Sadly no fish to be found but we had great fun trying. I love the warm fires and candle lights – so romantic!” She signed it, “Catherine Middleton.” Practical Prince William brought along more than his engagement ring . “Such fun to be back,” his note said. “Bought more warm clothes this time. Looked after so well, thank you guys!” They had gone out to Africa to stay at the 55,000-acre Lewa Downs wildlife reserve with another couple. The ranch is owned by William’s friend Ian Craig, whose daughter Jecca is also close to the prince.

OMG, I love this. While I personally do not find rustic locales to be romantic at all, I can appreciate how other couples might … Prince William and Kate have spent a lot of time in Africa over the 8 years they have been dating so I’m sure this particular locale meant a lot to them. While it may be a bit … odd how quickly this information was sniffed out and published, I guess it’s to be expected of arguably the world’s most famous engaged couple. So now we know where the couple got engaged, we know where the couple will likely wed … all we need now is to know when the couple will marry. I suspect we’ll be hearing the official wedding date very soon.

Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson Throw An Engagement Party

Pizza, friends and all the fixin's

Last weekend we learned that Jessica Simpson and her newly divorced boyfriend of 6 months have gotten themselves engaged to be married and today we learn from In Touch Weekly magazine that the couple celebrated their engagement with a small party with family and friends last night. Here are the deets from Jerica‘s engagement party as reported on by In Touch Weekly mag:

Less than a week after In Touch exclusively confirmed her engagement, Jessica Simpson celebrated her upcoming nuptials with friends, family and, of course, her fiancé, Eric Johnson, at her parents’ Encino, Calif., estate on November 18. The bride-to-be’s mother, Tina, threw a casual party with pizza and finger foods from La Loggia Italian Bistro and roses from Mark’s Garden for 50 guests, including Jessica’s sister, Ashlee, her brother-in-law, Pete Wentz, and her best friend, CaCee Cobb. “Jessica and Eric looked so happy,” an insider tells In Touch. Not all was smooth sailing, however — the singer, who along with her former football player beau arrived two hours late for the soiree, seemed anxious for guests’ approval of her unique ruby engagement ring. “At one point, she asked one of the servers what she thought of the ring. When the server said it was beautiful, Jessica snapped, ‘You don’t mean that!’” the insider says. But all in all, the blond beauty enjoyed her celebration. “Jessica is in love,” the insider adds, “and kept talking about her wedding plans and new life with Eric.”

LOL at the bit about the ring. While I have no doubt that In Touch is mostly right about the deets from the party, I’m guessing the ring bit is just a gossipy embellishment tossed in for good measure. In all honesty, this little engagement party sounds like it was a fun, tasteful affair. I mean … they ate pizzz, y’all. You gotta love how they’re keepin’ it real. I suspect that we’ll be hearing wedding plans soon … after all, Jess and Eric seem anxious to get themselves hitched as quickly as possible. Let’s just hope they at least hold off until the new year.
