We haven’t seen much of the second Spears lately (I didn’t even know she was dating anyone), but I am happy to report that she is back and bearing good news!
Britney’s 22-year-old sister Jamie Lynn announced via Instagram last night that she and Jamie Watson, her boyfriend of three years, are engaged. The two posed for an adorable picture and Spears also posted a close-up of her new bling along with the caption “Guesssss what??????”
Congratulations you two! Here’s hoping the marriage works out better than those of her big sis.
Check out the pic of her ring below:
There are few words to describe how I felt last night when I heard about the upcoming nuptials of Canadians Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. I hazily remember feeling shocked and even manically excited, which sometimes happens when I’m scared and confused.
Lavigne, 27 and Kroeger, 37 were collaborating in February for her upcoming fifth studio album and told very few people about their relationship. After six months of dating People says he proposed with a 14-karat diamond ring.
Post after-shock, people are finally emerging from the corners of their bathrooms where they locked themselves, crying on the floor. Many took to Twitter with astute comments and questions about the relationship.
Here are some common reactions:
The hypochondriac – “Is it contagious?”
Serious media concerns — “Where were they when we needed them?”
Positive thinking — “They’re doing us a favour.”
Apocalypse — “Honey, prepare the sound proof bomb shelter.”
International relations — “Where does this put Canada on the world stage?” Read more…
Just so you know ladies and gents, wedding proposals these days won’t fly without some type of lip dub/marching band/costuming. Allison’s boyfriend told her to meet him in Bryant Park for lunch and when she arrived with a close friend there was a table set up with a fancy white cloth. Then there was a flash mob and an entire marching band playing “Hey Baby.” Wow, marriage doesn’t come cheap these days.
Looks like flash mob marriage proposals are the new craze.
Forming a group of little girls to dance to Cobra Starship’s “You Make Me Feel…” and Bruno Mars’ “Marry You”, this man proposes to his longtime girlfriend.
While I think the Bruno Mars song is rather overplayed and kind of overused, this is an adorable proposal.
However, I just have one question.
How did he find so many little girls for the flash mob?
Liam Hemworth reminisced about bonding with Josh Hutcherson over Whitecastle burgers last night on Jay Leno. The Australian hunk and his Hunger Games co-star noshed on juicy patties and decided the only thing that could make their man-date better was to play basketball on a full stomach.
The friendly competition was a little too much for their digestive system to handle and they consequently threw up their burgers. It’s okay though — Peeta and Gale might not be chums in the movie but Liam says their basketball throw
up down was a memorable male bonding experience.
Leno was clearly forced to asked Liam about the engagement rumours between him and long-time girlfriend Miley Cyrus. The verdict? Not engaged. Duh.
Engagement rumours were already swirling but now they’re heating up even more, after Bobbi Kristina Brown was spotted wearing an engagement ring.
The late singer Whitney Houston’s 19-year-old daughter was photographed in Atlanta over the weekend with her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon, wearing a big rock on her ringfinger. Although Gordon was never formally adopted by Houston, he was taken in by the family several years ago as an alternative to joining the army.
Still… the ring’s certainly not going to stop the rumours.
The news of Snooki’s pregnancy and engagement to longtime boyfriend Jionni sparked a lot of emotionally fragile tweeters to consider forfeiting life altogether. While the problem was rooted in individual insecurities they took their frustrations out on the Jersey diva.
Justin Timberlake has asked Jessica Biel to marry him, reports Us Weekly. The proposal happened in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming, in late December.
“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” the magazine quoted an insider.
Us Weekly says that after a three-month split in early 2011, Biel, 29, made it clear that she wanted to spend her life with Timberlake, 30.
“When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step,” a source told Us.
In March last year, the couple broke up after four years, but their reps seemed to leave the door open.
It seems like the on-screen princess Anne Hathaway may soon get her fairytale wedding.
People Magazine has confirmed the 28-year-old Oscar nominated actress is engaged to boyfriend of over 3 years, Adam Shulman.
After a very public breakup with convicted felon Raffaello Follieri, who pled guilty to money laundering and wife fraud back in 2008, Anne’s found love again with the 30-year-old actor and jewelry designer.
“I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!” Anne tells People Magazine about meeting her fiance.
Anne, who claims to be a romantic at heart, must be ecstatic to not only star in next year’s biggest Blockbuster, “The Dark Knight Rises” but to also star in next year’s cutest wedding ceremony, too.
If the two can stay happy and in love for three years (which is like 30 years in Hollywood time) they can certainly stay married for many years ahead. Here’s hoping they sign a pre-nup and everything works out.
After announcing their engagement in April, the marriage has now been cancelled. The couple planned to marry in April, reports People.
A source says, ”She got dumped. She’s absolutely devastated. She can’t believe this is happening.”
“She was planning her dream wedding, the date was set, the location — everything was set,” the source added. “She’s in shock that the dream wedding she was planning is going to end this way.”
We are in shock as well Kristin. However we can assure you that after we interviewed you last year, all the guys at andPOP fell in love with you. So give us a call if you are feeling lonely.
Singer/songwriter Jason Mraz has called off his engagement to fiancee Tristan Prettyman, reports Canoe Jam.
Mraz proposed to Prettyman just last December, but the couple has now split due to Mraz’s heavy workload.
The couple was waiting to walk down the aisle until gay marriage is legalized in the U.S., but now Mraz confirms that the engagement is off.
Telling The Daily Beast, Mraz says, “My greatest mistake right now is, I’ve been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancee is no longer my beautiful fiancee.”
“Two halves don’t make a whole. Two wholes make a whole. In my relationship, I was giving myself away to make the relationship better, but in actuality, wasn’t doing better by doing that. I became less of a man.”
He insists the two are still friends, though, and hang out together all the time.
“We are still super friends, we go to yoga together, we surf together. We acknowledge the journey that each of us is on. We certainly want each of us to feel whole and complete. And it’s when you’re whole and complete that that attraction exists and it really thrives.”
Mraz makes plenty of women swoon over his lyrics and music, so I’m sure he will find someone in no time. Maybe he should take a break and reconnect with his old flame.
After announcing their engagement on May 18, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have been the target of all gossip. Of course, that has nothing to do with the fact that Kim has been flaunting her stunning, $2 million, 20.5k engagement ring, designed by Lorraine Schwartz, at any chance she could get. Of course not.
The most recent news about the soon-to-be-wed couple? TMZ is reporting that Kim plans to change her last name from Kardashian to Humphries once she and her boyfriend of seven months tie the knot. Quite a gutsy move for someone whose whole career revolves around her last name.
Take Paris Hilton for example. Would anyone really have signed up to be a contestant on My New BFF if her last name wasn’t Hilton? Most likely not. I mean honestly, the fact that she had to have a show in order to find a best friend is quite sad. I guess that’s what happens when you get into a fight with Nicole Richie!
“I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries … She needs to be Kim Kardashian because she’s worked so hard to get where she is,” Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, told Popeater.com recently.
However, one could definitely see this as a sign of maturity. Perhaps Kim realizes how hard she has worked and finally feels comfortable enough that she no longer needs to hide behind the Kardashian name. Maybe it’s time for her to step out of her family’s shadows and just be Kim Humphries. If that’s the case, who could blame her?
Whatever the case, Kim and Kris seem to be very happy together, and we can’t wait to see all the pictures from what is sure to be a fairytale wedding. And from what sources close to Kim are saying, the wedding could be much sooner than we would have thought! According to Perez Hilton, the source said:
“The wedding is going to be at the end of July or the beginning of August. The reason they’re rushing it is because they want to do it before the basketball season starts again, so that they have time to have a romantic honeymoon! She wants it to be very traditional, huge and formal.” We wouldn’t expect anything less!
“We both feel that in our engagement, we have a union that’s really special and can’t be broken. It’s a sacred bond,” Mraz told Us Weekly. “The wedding would be nice for our family, our friends, our community — our moms especially — and so it puts us in the fight.”
They refuse to get married until marriage is legal for everyone.
“We can’t get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal,” the ‘I’m Yours’ singer continued. “I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights.”
Could this be an excuse for Mraz to delay the marriage? Or is this a genuine stance for human rights?
“Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer is officially engaged to his new girlfriend Kayte Walsh, reports Radar Online.
Kayte flaunted her huge diamond ring at the train terminal in Washington D.C. as the couple arrived for the Kennedy Center Honors gala. This good news comes just weeks after Walsh suffered a terrible miscarriage and lost their first child together.
Grammer’s rep confirmed the engagement, adding that the couple was “happy and very much in love.”
That sure was a quick recovery on Grammer’s part! He divorced his wife of fourteen years just this past July. That’s gotta hurt!
Eh, as long as you’re happy… Congratulations guys.
Nick Lachey, of 98 Degrees fame, has put a ring on the finger of Vanessa Minnillo, reports RadarOnline. After splitting up last summer, the two are back together and apparently ready to take their relationship to the altar.
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” said Lachey and Minnillo in a statement to UsMagazine.
The couple’s relationship took off in 2006 after Nick called his three year marriage with Jessica Simpson quits. With this news, it’s safe to assume that Nick is confident that this relationship will last.
Reality fans shouldn’t expect another TV show about Nick and Vanessa’s marriage though, as his lady has already shut that idea out.
Best of luck to both of you!
People.com reports that Britney Spears is not in fact getting married to Jason Trawick and she is not wearing an engagement ring.
Rumors spread like wildfire that Trawick had popped the question during their vacation in Maui, Hawaii. Though these rumors apparently have no truth in them, it isn’t hard to believe that Spears would “accidentally” find herself in a shotgun wedding situation once again. It’s probably a good thing that the couple decided not to vacation in Vegas because what Britney does in Vegas definitely does not stay in Vegas.
It’s also a little suspicious that Spears and Trawick toured a Maui wedding chapel and observed a wedding from their hotel room. A ploy anyone?
Spears must have just needed some solace from the recent controversy surrounding her former bodyguard accusing her of sexual harassment and of child abuse. Spears needs to fly under the radar for a while and what better place to do that than Hawaii? But Beware, the vicious gossip venom can find you anywhere.
Bristol has called off engagement after another woman alleges Levi is the father of her unborn child. However TMZ reports that Levi’s manager, Tank Jones, explains that this is a big misunderstanding, and the allegations are false.
Tank also explains that Levi did not fly to Los Angeles to shoot a music video mocking the Palins, despite earlier reports.
His manager stresses that Levi will care both emotionally and financially for Tripp. Tripp is of course the illegitimate child of Bristol and Levi.
Levi Johnston’s ex girlfriend, Lanesia Garcia, is pregnant, and Bristol Palin isn’t very happy, RadarOnline has learned. Bristol Palin’s friends say that the young mom is “heartbroken” by the news that her on-again, off-again boyfriend (now fiancee) might have another baby on the way.
Amidst rumours of multiple reality shows in the works for the couple, which was reported after they got back together earlier this month, it looks like this could be another big divide between Sarah Palin’s daughter and Levi Johnston.
A source told RadarOnline that “Levi insists the baby isn’t his, but no one really knows for sure.” Levi is said to be one of three possible fathers, making us think that the reality shows they were talking about might have something to do with Jerry Springer.
The Palin parents definitely weren’t supportive of Bristol and Levi’s engagement announcement that surfaced earlier this month and this news probably won’t be getting any “congratulations” either.
PopEater reports that Sarah has already made threats to Levi if he harms her family again.
“Levi did everything he could to destroy Sarah and her family. He has accused Sarah of being a bad mother, a bad wife and a bad leader. How can he walk back into their life like nothing happened? He should think again,” a Palin insider tells PopEater. “He may have won Bristol back, but he will never gain the trust of Sarah. She doesn’t forgive and forget.”
Sarah is furious with Bristol according to insiders, and feels this is a huge mistake. However let’s hope that with Levi’s 15 minutes of fame being over, the guy will focus on being a good husband and father. Realistically, what else does he have going for him?
Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, who found each other on the completely legitimate love show The Bachelor just a few months ago, have ended their engagement, reports E! News. That brings the total number of failed Bachelor pairs to 13.
“Jake and Vienna have split and appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time,” Pavelka’s rep said in a statement.
It’s okay, one of them is bound to end up on another season of The Bachelor and fine “true love” for real this time.
