HIT: Kelly Clarkson gets engaged
Clarkson is one of the few stars by way of reality show that can make me go, “aww, you’re so sweet!” She’s simply seems like instant best friend material and I don’t even listen to her music!

Then our jaws dropped when she shared a photo of her gigantic yellow canary diamond engagement ring. Congrats, Kelly!

Dan, the outsider. The show’s story lines are barely coherent anymore, so why not? I’ve basically given up on trying decipher what has been going on the show. I did appreciate the Kristen Bell and Michael Bloomberg (New York City’s mayor) cameos! Thanks, Gossip Girl, for the years of sartorial inspiration!
