Bachelor in Paradise?
More like... No Longer a Paradise Because I Just Asked the Woman of My Dreams to Marry Me! In Paradise!
Indeed, while this reality show title would be way too long and would make very little sense in nearly every context, it would apply perfectly at the moment to Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon.
According to People Magazine (and the revealing photo below), Haibon popped the biggest question of his life to Iaconetti on Sunday.
And he did it in a way that was simultaneously romantic, public and very much planned ahead of time:
He proposed while filming Bachelor in Paradise Season 5.
In an image released by ABC, Haibon Haibon got down on one knee on the beach, opened up his ring case and allegedly stunned his bride-to-be, who reacted by placing her hands on her chest and throwing her head back in excitement.
Back in 2015, loyal fans of this reality series may recall, Iaconetti was devastated to be turned down by Haibon after seemingly getting close to him on Season 2 of this same series.
But the stars remained close and Haibon eventually came to the same realization Ashley had before him:
They were soulmates!
"I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise, which is why I said we're still going to be friends," Jared said during a YouTube video of the couple's love story, which they titled "The Story of Us."
"Like, it just didn't feel over," he added in this lengthy and often-mocked piece of footage.
Haibon also admitted in this video that Ashley dating some other dude is what gave him the "kick in the ass" he needed to see what was in front of him this entire time.
Watch the video here:
"Bachelor Nation hasn’t seen so many of the important details that make up our story," the couple says in this video, adding:
"[We] thought there was no better way to explain to the people who have followed our love lives for over three years than by filming our own episode of The Story of Us."
Back during their first run on Bachelor in Paradise, there was chatter that Haibon and Iaconetti had sex, which would have been the first time for the latter enjoying such an experience.
It might explain what has drawn Ashley to Jared with such intensity over the years if this rumor is accurate.
“There’s just this undeniable, magnetic force between the two of us that just is indescribable,” Haibon told People Magazine at the annual Nylon Young Hollywood Party last mont, adding at the time:
And then there was this from Iaconetti, said to Bachelor alum Ben Higgins during iHeartRadio's The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast:
""He is my person. He is my soul mate."
What else ise there to say?
Congrats to the very, very happy couple!
Oh, that Rahn. Will he ever stahp?
That's likely the question on the mind of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's castmates today, as the Jersey Shore crew was forced to stop filming ahead of schedule due to ongoing drama between Ronnie and his baby mama, Jen Harley.
Until yesterday, the cast was in Las Vegas filming a second season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
The title isn't terribly apt in Magro's case, as Vegas is his home turf these days.
So it was a bad choice of locale for reasons that go beyond the irony of filming a show with "Shore" in the title in the middle of a landlocked state.
You see, if you've been watching the current season of JSFV, you know that Ron and Jen's relationship isn't the greatest.
During his time in South Beach, Ronnie cheated on Jen with a French woman who was unimaginatively dubbed "French Fry."
But that was only the beginning of their problems.
Shortly after that episode aired, Ronnie accused Jen of cheating on him, in a wild Instagram rant in which he also called her a "c-m dumpster."
In the weeks since, Harley and Ortiz-Magro broke up and got back together several times, so it should've come as no surprise to Shore producers when their relationship drama dominated the first few days of filming in Vegas.
Maybe that was the plan. Maybe the plan backfired.
Whatever the case, the plan was scrapped when -- to use the parlance of Shore's current season -- Ron spiraled and quickly spun out of control.
Last week, Magro got in a fight with another guest at a Vegas hotel.
Just days later, MTV pulled the plug on filming in Vegas and sent the cast back to the Garden State.
“They cannot wait to get the hell out of the desert and be away from everything surrounding Ronnie and Jen,” a source close to production tells Radar Online.
The situation had apparently gotten so bad that the cast was considering holding an intervention in response to Ron's self-destructive behavior.
“They are all adults now, and they cannot watch Ronnie destroy his life anymore,” says the insider.
Hey, the guy's been fun to watch this season, but he's a 32-year-old dad now.
Maybe he should cool it on the Ron-Ron juice for a bit.
You knew this day would come, Jelena fans.
Sure, you may have been cautiously optimistic when you learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had gotten back together for the 47 bajillionth time, but on some level you suspected that eventually, the Biebs would get busted engaging in some hardcore canoodling with someone who is very much not Selena.
If you go way back through Justin's relationship Rolodex (that's a thing your great-grandparents used to store their contacts in), you'll find the name Hailey Baldwin.
Justin and Hailey dated back in 2016.
It's really not all that long ago, but Justin has had sex with approximately all the women in the two years since they split.
In recent months, of course, Justin briefly reconciled with Selena, while Hailey (allegedly) dated Shawn Mendes.
Now that those relationships have gone bust, it seems Justin and Hailey are once again hooking up.
(Justin and Selena may have split because Bieber was hooking up with Hailey, but more on that later.)
According to Us Weekly the Biebs and Baldwin enjoyed a weekend in Miami that began with a “rare, low-key night” at the W club in South Beach.
Witnesses say the probable couple was spotted “being very flirty and dancing on each other” while “holding hands.”
“Justin [put] his arm around Hailey throughout the night,” says one onlooker.
“[They] didn’t shy away from the crowd or onlookers.”
The next morning, Justin and Hailey were spotted enjoyed poolside, during which she was seen toweling him off.
That night, they enjoyed a romantic dinner at Casa Tua before going clubbing again, this time at exclusive hotspot LIV.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Justin is rumored to have reached out to Hailey several months ago ... while he was still dating Selena.
Naturally, a rep for Justin has been quick to claim that he got in touch with his ex solely "as a friend."
“Justin reached out to Hailey. They didn’t talk on the phone and it wasn’t in person, just an exchange of texts,” the source exclusively tells Us.
“There is nothing going on between her and Justin. She’s not interested in Justin in the slightest and he’s not interested in her.”
Based on the sound of that denial, we're about three days away from an official relationship announcement.
Guard your feelings, Hailey.
If history has taught us anything, it's that Justin will break your heart and kick you to the curb with a text that includes the word "gurl."
Back in April, we asked the following question:
Is the romance between Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor really over for good?
Fast forward about three months and we have a definitive answer from the Vanderpump Rules cast members:
Heck no! It will literally NEVER be over!
Indeed, Cartwright and Taylor stunned a majority of the Internet on Thursday night by announcing their ENGAGEMENT!
The veteran reality stars did so via Instagram, with Brittany sharing a close-up of her impressive diamond ring and a smiling Taylor staring into the camera in the background.
“Omg omg!!!!!!!! We are ENGAGED! What a way to start our summer and season 7!!" wrote Cartwright as a caption, managing to tease both her personal future and professional future at once.
"I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives! I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed!
"I am the happiest girl ever right now."
Cartwright and Taylor, whose journey toward this moment will be chronicled next year on Vanderpump Rules, celebrated their engagement at beachside restaurant Neptune’s Net in Malibu, California.
Taylor, meanwhile, chimed in himself via Instagram by gushing as follows:
She said yes!!! I can't wait for y'all to see how this happened next season!!! I am marrying the woman of my dreams and I could not be happier!!
He then plugged a couple friends/companies who very likely gave him and Brittany a free piece of jewelry and a free meal in exchange:
Make sure y'all tune in season 7 to see how this unfolded. My amazing friend/brother @kcdlovecampaign knocked it out of the park on this ring. I told him a few details but I trusted him and as you can see he came through above and beyond.
When I decided to do this he was the only one I wanted to design Brittany's ring and this is why.. flawless Kyle absolutely flawless.
Also thank you Margaret owner of @Neptunesnet for allowing me to make this special day possible at one of our favorite spots to eat in Malibu.
Why did this announcement take us by surprise?
Why did we never think this day would come?
Because Jax and Brittany seemingly broke up last year amidst a rather intense and ugly cheating scandal.
The former admittedly slept with Faith Stowers, a former SUR staffer Faith Stowers who knows Cartwright pretty well.
But that's not even the end of it, although that in and of itself would put an end to most relationships.
Stowers has talked openly about this affair, stating for the record that Jax said his sex life with Brittany sucked and that he hoped he could have a threesome with Stowers and Cartwright.
He supposedly just wanted to bring Stowers into bed with him and Cartwright, without actually dumping the latter.
Alas, the threesome never materialized, as far as we know, and Jax simply banged Faith on the side.
Stowers then pretended to be pregnant, while Taylor did all he could to win Brittany back over.
"He has betrayed me in so many ways,” Cartwright told the camera during a Vanderpump Rules episode that aired in April, adding:
“He’s cheated on me, he’s begged for me back, he’s played mind games with me.
"And I know that he’s not changing and he’s always going to be the same Jax Taylor he always has been."
And yet, apparently, Cartwright simply can't get enough of this Jax Taylor.
Tweeted Jax this spring:
"I am not perfect and I will never be but I am working very hard on myself.
"I realized later that @BNCartwright is my angel and she makes me want to be a better man."
Welp, we'll see whether or not Taylor was serious.
Because he and Brittany have now taken a serious step in their relationship.
Join us in wishing these stars the best of luck in their engagement and leave a Comment below with your thoughts on whether it will last a full week or as long as one month.
Folks, this is serious.
We've said that before, we know.
But it still hasn't settled in, no matter how many times Sofia Richie and Scott Disick express extreme affection for each other.
The latest example came to us on Saturday, after Richie shared the romantic photo of herself and Disick on Instagram, wishing her boyfriend a very happy 35th birthday in the accompanying caption.
"Happy Birthday babe! Thank you for being you. Love you," wrote Sofia.
Yes, she loves him.
It's safe to assume no one saw such intense feelings coming when these two hooked up last year.
Richie had semi-recently been scorned by Justin Bieber; Disick spent all his time drinking and/or pining over Kourtney Kardashian.
And yet they started posing for photos together on social media... the romance continued to heat up... and now many celebrity gossip fans barely even bat an eye when a message such as the one above is relayed.
Heck, there's even been talk that Disick wants to put a baby inside of Richie.
The reality star is allegedly "putting pressure on Sofia to have a baby," according to an anonymous Life & Style source, which is hilarious and troubling on many levels.
One of which being that Richie is 19 years old.
We're also pretty sure that three kids spawned by Scott Disick is already three kids too many.
(No offense, Mason, Reign and Penelope. You're all cuties and we wish you nothing but the best.)
In the image above, Richie and Disick are on vacation in St. Bart's.
They seem to take many trips together, often snappng pictures while on board a private jet or on some tropical location.
They also seem to spend a lot of time with Disick's aforementioned children, which has supposedly prompted some backlash from their mother.
"Kourtney flipped out and she told Scott that Sofia needs to back the f-ck off right now before she makes her back off," an insider said of Kardashian in March.
Richie's response, according to this same report?
"She doesn't care what Kourtney thinks."
Despite their age difference, meanwhile, Scott and Sofia are still going strong after almost a year of dating.
That much is very clear at this point.
They "have gotten more serious the past few months," an insider recently told E! News, adding:
"They have definitely had their ups and downs, but lately everything has been really good between them."
The stars were spotted getting cozy on a yacht in Cannes about a year ago at this time, in May of 2017.
Then, in September Disick seemingly confirmed their romantic status by posting a photo of the two of them in Miami.
There are no questions about it now, however. These two are hot, heavy... and headed to the altar?
Crazier things have happened, right?
Such as anyone wanting to date Scott Disick in the first place.
Back in November of 2017, Derick Dillard was fired from his in-laws' reality show, Counting On.
His wife, Jill Duggar, quit the show shortly thereafter as a gesture of solidarity.
For a time, the Dillards were without a source of income, which would be a problem for anyone, but was especially daunting in this case, as the couple is raising two young sons.
Recently, Jill launched a midwife service, but business has reportedly been slow, both due to concerns about her licensure and ongoing issues with her family's reputation.
Meanwhile, Derick seems to be devoting most of his ample free time to spewing his political opinions on Twitter.
Naturally, fans and critics alike have been quick to encourage him to get a job, but it seems that's the one issue that Derick has no interest in arguing about with strangers.
In fact, it seems he'll do whatever it takes to avoid the subject of his lack of employment, so you can imagine our surprise when Jill addressed the issue for him:
This week, Jill posted the above photo, taken at her local polling place -- and she raised quite a few eyebrows with the caption.
"We just voted! Teaching ‘em young the privilege of letting your voice be heard...and took both boys with me since Derick was at work. lol," she captioned the pic.
On top of the usual comments about the Josh Duggar sex scandals and concerns over whether little Samuel is the right size for his car seat, lots of fans wanted to know exactly what sort of "work" Derick was engaged in.
Last we checked, the 29-year-old was unemployed and seemed to have no interest in changing that condition.
And as Jill's followers were quick to point out, it's not like D-Dill is the type to keep his accomplishments to himself.
"Does he work at Twitter?" joked one fan.
"'Work' and an actual job may be different things at the Dillard house," quipped another.
"Haha. 'Derick is at work.' That cracks me up," remarked a third.
Another dispensed with the humor and simply stated exactly what we're all thinking:
"He doesn't really work or hold a job," the follower wrote.
"If he did, he would proudly be announcing his job all over the internet."
That's both tough but fair -- in other words, the exact opposite of a bigoted coward like Derick.
Zing! We'll be here all week, folks!
Watch Counting On online for more from reality TV's most controversial family.
In case you somehow haven't heard by now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married on Saturday with their loved ones looking on.
Meghan's family won't be there, of course, but we assume they'll check it out on TV if there's nothing else on.
Anyway, the ceremony is sure to feature all the glitz and glamor and bedazzled, horse-drawn carriages that have made previous royal weddings so memorable.
But this time there's a giant elephant in the room in the room, and he's wearing a diaper.
Just ten weeks after she says "I do," Meghan will turn 37.
That's certainly not old, by any means, and anyone with functioning eyeballs can see that Meghan is a gorgeous woman who could convincingly play a character a decade her junior.
Unfortunately, it's a sad fact of human anatomy that the uterus is incapable of fooling a casting director.
That's our very idiotic way of saying that if Harry and Meghan want kids, they better work quickly.
And according to a new report from Radar Online, they're planning to do exactly that.
“Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding,” a source tells the site.
“They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive – and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets.”
And, of course, they're both well aware of what's at stake.
If Meghan produces a male heir within the first year of marriage, her family will be gifted with four stout pack mules and a fowl of their choosing.
If she fails, she'll be locked in the Tower of London, where she'll remain until a knight of virtue true slays the two-headed hydra.
We haven't looked any of this stuff up, but we feel perfectly comfortable putting it out on the internet because we never learned how to be responsible.
In all seriousness, the insider adds that while there's "no chance" that Harry would have held off on marrying Meghan if she couldn't bear children, the couple has already consulted with a fertility expert who has assured them that all systems are go.
“Meghan has always looked after herself by eating healthily, and doing a lot of exercise including yoga,” says the source.
“Being in optimum health increases any woman’s chances of conceiving, and someone in Meghan’s shape should especially have no problem in that area," the insider adds.
“The only issue is that she knows she is heading for the big 4-0, so knows the sooner she gets pregnant the better.”
As you've probably heard by now, Meghan's siblings and father are all terrible, so it's comforting to know she'll soon have a family of her own.
They say the best revenge is living well.
And the second best revenge is having ridiculously photogenic children.
Back in March of 2017, Tori Spelling welcomed her fifth child.
Fans were somewhat surprised by Spelling's decision to expand her family, not only because she's 44 years old, but because her extreme financial difficulties have been well-documented in recent years.
But over one year later, Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are holding things together, and it looks as though their relationship might actually be on the upswing for the first time in a very long time.
So we suppose it should come as no surprise that Tori is talking about having another kid.
“You know, I do, I like even numbers, they keep asking, they all want one more because they want a little baby sister now,” Spelling recently told Us Weekly.
Fortunately, she seems well aware of the fact that bringing another child into the world would likely send Dean running back to the probably-fictitious Emily Goodhand.
“But I can’t imagine dad being sane if we have one more. It would push dad over the edge. He’s doing the best he can!”
And Dean would have every reason to lose it if Tori announced her desire to get pregnant again, right?
After all the Spellings are broke.
Not celebrity broke, mind you, but regular folk, coupon-clipping broke.
The situation is so bad that McDermott was nearly arrested for unpaid child support.
But believe it or not, those financial issues might actually help motivate Tori and Dean to welcome yet another child.
Mary Jo Eustace has a son by McDermott, and she says she and her boy both expect Tori and Dean to pop out another tyke.
"I think my son would not be surprised if they had another one," Eustace says.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if she had another one."
And why wouldn't she be shocked?
Well, it seems the payout that Tori and Dean will eventually receive from the trust of her mother, Candy Spelling, is entirely dependent on how many children they have.
“So, there’s incentive there," says Eustace.
As for life with five kids under one roof, Tori says it's a dream come true:
“It’s going amazing. You know, we had four kind of back-to-back. I was pregnant for years, and then there was a little break, so now that we have started over basically, Dean always says we got all the amount of diapers, all of them self-sufficient, and then started all over again with Beau,” Spelling told Us.
“But Beau is going to be the happiest, well-adjusted baby ever because he has four doting brothers and sisters," she adds.
"We joke, he hasn’t started walking yet and we’re like, ‘Well why should he? Everyone carries him everywhere.’ And he knows too.”
Why walk when others will carry you?
There's a metaphor for Tori's financial situation in there somewhere.
Ian Somerhalder wants the world to know two things about Nikki Reed:
1. She is an amazing woman.
2. She's gorgeous! Especially when she's wearing her birthday suit!
The former Vampire Diaries star paid tribute to his wife on the occasion of her first Mother's Day as an actual mother on Sunday, posting a lengthy message that once again proved Somerhalder may have gone into the wrong profession.
As profound as they come, he should perhaps be a poet instead of an actor.
But the reason why Somerhalder's Instagaram caption has gone especially viral is because it accompanied a photo of Reed naked.
Totally and completely, folks.
"No filter needed," wrote Ian to open his tribute, adding of Reed:
"I remember taking this image of this magical human with a tiny magical human inside.
"Nicole, you are the warmth of the sun, you are the light of the moon, you are the air in my breath and the ground beneath my feet."
See, we told you Somerhalder should be a poet.
The lovely image, as you can see above, features Reed very far along in her pregnancy.
The famous couple welcomed its first child into the world last July, naming its little girl Bodhi Soleil.
Shortly after announcing her arrival to the world, Somerhalder explained that he and Reed were going to go social media silent for a month in order to fully embrace parenthood.
He also addressed his wife and wrote:
"Thank you for being my partner in this life and thank you for inspiring not just me but all others who read, hear or see what your soul gives us."
Man, this guy is good.
In this latest tribute, Somerhalder continued as follows:
How lucky I am to witness you in your most natural and powerful state; as a mother. I’m so profoundly grateful to you for the great sacrifice, patience, will and strength to grow, nurture and push this tiny little angel into the world.
You inspire me every day to learn and alongside learning from you there is no doubt in my mind that we will be the parents we’ve always dreamed of being.
Happy 1st Mother’s Day honey. What a special day, like every day, to spend in the California sun with you and our cub.
Ian and Nikki have done an admirable job of keeping their daughter away from the spotlight.
They have not even released a photo of the precious bundle of joy just yet.
Reed and Somerhalder got married in April of 2015, taking fans by major surprise when they announced they had exchanged vows.
To celebrate two years later, the stars gushed over each other immeasurably online.
Wrote Ian at the time:
To the most amazing human in the world. Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage. Thank you for being my best friend, the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I've ever known.
And then Reed:
Navigating the waters of life with you is the greatest and most rewarding adventure I've ever known. We climb, we grow, and we laugh at all of it. Thank you for being exactly who you are, and for loving all of me.
These two are so in love.
By now, you've almost certainly heard the news that Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian while she was pregnant with his child.
Earlier this month, Khloe welcomed her first child – a girl named True Thompson – but she has yet to kick Tristan to the curb.
Fans are growing concerned that she's planning to stick by the Cleveland Cavs forward despite his rampant infidelity.
And as much as we hate to admit it, it's looking more and more like Khloe and Tristan will try and work things out.
Here's why that's a terrible idea.
1. The Dilemma
2. Played For a Fool
3. Horrendous Timing
4. What Comes Next?
5. A Changing View?
6. Making Her Move
Your Royal Highness?
Based on the following official engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it's really more like the following:
Such royal hotness!
The British muffin of stud and the former USA Network actress have posed for a series of breathtaking pictures that are taking the Internet by sexy storm.
They've been unveiled by Kensington Palace, whose Twitter account left the following simple message on the wake of these wonderful portraits:
"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to release official photographs to mark their engagement."
The two main snapshots were taken by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week at Frogmore House, Windsor.
One is color (above), one is black and white (below) and a third has also been posted on social media as a sort of thank you to the public for showing such enthusiasm for the first pair.
In the above photograph, Markle leans on her fiance's leg as they pose on a set of stairs, the beauty donning a black gown and the hunk sporting a blue suit.
They're holding hands, with Markle showing off her engagement ring very clearly for the camera.
Directly above, meanwhile, the Royal and the soon-to-be Royal nuzzle in close together and appear to be laughing over something.
Perhaps over those silly rumors that Markle is feuding with Kate Middleton.
“It was an incredible honor to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another,” Lubomirski through the Palace, adding:
“I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together.”
Have you ever seen a happier, better looking couple?!?
Due to the overwhelmingly positive responses to these pictures, Kensington Palace was kind enough to release a third image.
"As a way to say thank you, [Harry and Meghan] have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you," read the caption to the following photo.
Simply glorious, right?
The public release of these pictures comes just a day after Markle joined her man and other senior members of the royal family for Queen Elizabeth II’s annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.
She is also scheduled travel to Sandringham with Harry to join the royal family for Christmas.
We guess things really are serious between these stars.
Following weeks of rumors, Harry and Markle got engaged a few weeks ago and have already announced that they will wed on May 19 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
We hope to be invited.
In the span of just a few short years, Meghan Markle has gone from Deal or No Deal "briefcase girl" to star of a USA network legal drama to future royalty.
It's a trajectory that's sure to inspire both misty-lensed Hallmark Channel romances and 99 cent erotic e-books with titles like The Finger Prince.
We don't blame the public for being fascinated with Meghan's story.
We all like to think we'll be saved from our desperate, mediocre lives when someone with tremendous power and influence recognizes how special we are.
Basically, Meghan is Harry Potter and Harry is Dumbledore and ... well, we won't get into the importance of knowing how to work a wand in both stories, but you get the idea.
The point of that confusing and oddly profane metaphor is that Meghan and Harry's romance is the stuff of bestsellers.
But it won't be J.K. Rowling telling the tale.
No, it appears the first to cash in on the international Harkle obsession will be British writer Andrew Morton, a provocateur who's previously authored biographies on Tom Cruise, Madonna, and Angelina Jolie.
Somehow, not having not been smothered to death by the avalanche of smug that came from researching those three, Morton lived to tell tell the tale of Harry's mother, Princess Di, in a bestseller titled Diana: Her Story.
Despite the fact that the book was based largely on a secretly recorded conversation between Diana and a friend, Morton was able to secure the late princess' approval of the project.
In other words, this is a dude who knows where the bodies are buried, and now he's coming for MegMar:
“I was a fan of Meghan’s long before she met Prince Harry,” British writer Andrew Morton wrote to Fox News.
“She has star quality, what some have called ‘the Markle Sparkle.'"
As a man who has the sack to use the phrase "Markle Sparkle" publicly, you can bet that Morton won't shy away from all the gritty details of Meghan's 36 years.
Or, he'll just engage in 400-plus pages of ass-kissing, because the royals have basically made his career.
Based on his comments on the project, we're guessing it's the latter:
"Confident, groomed and camera ready, she is a dramatic contrast to the blushing, coy royal brides of recent history," Morton recently told Fox News
"The warmth and affection Meghan and Harry displayed during their engagement interview years is light years away from the stilted ‘whatever love means’ conversation with Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.”
“Meghan is an exciting and genuinely charismatic addition to the royal family – she makes the House of Windsor seem relevant again. Hers is a fascinating story and I can’t wait to tell it.”
Basically, it sounds like dude is a living Instagram filter.
His version of Meghan has a flower crown and shoots out rays of angelic light when she smiles.
So yeah, you may have to wait a bit longer for Markle to get the warts-and-all treatment.
Or you can just go ahead and download The Finger Prince to your Kindle.
We're not here to judge.
Kaitlyn Bristowe may have gotten her happily ever after with Shawn Booth after they became a thing on The Bachelorette Season 11.
That was back in 2015, and you don't need to be a Bachelor spoilers expert to know these things rarely last as long as they have.
As far as reality TV stars go, weddings generally follow months, not years later, so fans have been speculating when the wedding will take place at all.
But what if it already happened?
In a surprising turn of events, Kaitlyn may have accidentally revealed that she is already married during a recent helping of her Off The Vine podcast.
Fans of the star took to Reddit when the reality TV star made a jab about the possibility of her already being married to Shawn.
Not the case, she said, apparently confirming that her fans would be first to know ... once there is something to know. Says Kait:
"I promise, when we have a wedding date you will all know, I will announce it on the podcast, you will never have to question me again."
The bombshell came after the advertisements, and there's reason to believe the end of the ads caught her mid-conversation with Claudia Oshry.
"Maybe we are already married because I needed a green card to work on Broadway!" she said with a laugh.
It's not news that Bristowe can be seen on Broadway up until December 30 at the August Wilson Theatre, but could this have been a slip of the tongue with her pal that confirmed the news?
It would be a stretch, and while we love Kaitlyn, it would be very out of character for her to want to have a low-key wedding.
It's more likely that Kaitlyn was having a joke and trying to make Claudia laugh, but we're sure Kaitlyn will clarify the comments in due course.
As expected, though, fans lost their minds and were on the fence about the comments and what they meant.
"There's a tiny, tiny chance that it's just true but it just doesn't make sense, logically, and it doesn't fit with Kaitlyn's personality."
"I love her, but the girl loves attention, and I don't see her getting married quietly making just a passing comment about it," said one fan.
Another fan chimed in, saying "Kaitlyn sometimes says things off the cuff on this show. I hope she would understand that if this is true, saying publicly that you got married to get a green card/stay in the country is technically fraud."
"If the US government wants to come after you, they can, and they won't care if you have actually been in a relationship for a while."
Given the fact that Kaitlyn has been talking about having two wedding dresses for the momentous occasion, it would not make sense for her to be already married.
Yes, there is the slight chance that she is married, and milking the publicity train in the aftermath, but it would still very out of character.
They don't do Bachelor Nation weddings low-key. They are elegant affairs that are littered with flashing lights as everyone poses in front of the cameras.
As always, we'll keep you up to speed on any further developments on the marriage front!
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below!
Wait... there went the bride?!?
Yes, according to a new report about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
NW Magazine, a publication that stems from the actor’s home nation of Australia, alleges that Miley and Liam actually exchanged vows six months ago.
“It was a very intimate ceremony at their house in Malibu,” an insider tells the publication, staring that vows were exchanged in late April and adding:
“I’m told only a handful of people were there and they’re still the only ones who know."
Well... not anymore!
Miley and Liam don't plan on going public with their status as Husband and Wife any time soon, so this report may go unverified for awhile.
The singer and actor actually vacationed recently at Tybee Island in Georgia, which is where they filmed The Last Song way back in 2009.
It was on this movie set that Hemsworth and Cyrus fell in love.
The two got engaged after several months of dating, only to break up in 2013.
They remained broken up for over a year, yet sources slowly started leaking after awhile that the pair had found their way back to each other.
In January of 2016, meanwhile, Miley suddenly started wearing an engagement ring in public.
Neither she nor Hemsworth confirmed that any question had been popped, however.
Not that this has prevented several celebrity gossip outlets from claiming the couple had quietly gone off and gotten married.
This is really just the latest example of a tabloid announcing on its own that a wedding has taken place.
It is true, however, that Cyrus and Hemsworth are now fully out on the open.
For awhile there, the stars barely walked any red carpets together and refrained from even sharing Instagram pictures of each other.
But that changed many months ago.
Now, Miley and Liam frequently act all goofy on social media and even discuss their sex lives with talk show hosts!
“It’s good for people to have that space to grow individually. Otherwise, when you’re with someone from 16 until 24, you grow into the same person,” Cyrus has said in the past of she, Liam and their hiatus.
Now, “it feels like nothing changed except we grew up a lot," she added back then.
And, hey, one more thing may have also changed, if this report is accurate:
Each star's marital status!
Well, it looks like we have some bad news for the star of the USA network’s third best-loved series behind Mr. Robot and, um … is Burn Notice still a thing?
Clearly, we didn’t really think that joke through, but the show we’re talking about is Suits, and the star we’re referring to is reigning Ms. Much Too Hot For Basic Cable, Meghan Markle.
As a human who exists on planet Earth, or perhaps a super-smart ape with an abiding interest in celebrity gossip (we don’t judge), you’ve no doubt heard by now that Meghan is dating Prince Harry.
In fact, you’ve probably caught wind of one of the many rumors that Meghan and Harry are engaged!
Obviously, there’s been no official word on that front, but the consensus amongst insiders is that a royal announcement should be happening any day now.
However, according to one clairvoyant, Meg shouldn’t waste any time picking out a wedding dress:
“My spirit guide is showing me that Prince Harry will propose to his girlfriend Meghan Markle November/December time, I am told that the engagement is already planned and she’ll say yes but they’ll break up before any wedding can take place,” psychid Lyndsay Edwards reported on her website today.
“My spirit guide tells me that Meghan is not the right partner for Prince Harry and that there is someone better suited who will come into his life not long after he splits up from Meghan Markle.”
Daaaay-um! Sorry, Meg.
Hope you didn’t go pledging those Suits residuals to Unicef or anything nutty like that.
First rule of dating a prince:
Don’t start acting spoiled until he makes you a royal.
You young folks might want to write that one down.
Anyway, in keeping with the proud tradition of psychics throwing shade at Meghan by suggesting that Princess Di would totally hate her, Edwards hints that Harry’s next girlfriend will be chosen for him by a solicitous ghost:
“I get the strongest sense that this next relationship for Prince Harry is somewhat planned on spirit’s part and I would question if she’s been chosen for Harry by a loved one in the spirit world who is going to ensure that Prince Harry and this girl cross paths,” she writes.
“I am shown when the two of them meet and it appears that Prince Harry isn’t looking for anyone in that way but is taken by surprise and caught off guard by his immediate attraction to this girl who I am told is really sweet and polite.”
Having apparently mistaken her own psychic prediction for a roast battle, Lindsay adds:
“She looks quite petite and very natural in her appearance – totally different from Meghan and more similar in appearance to girls he’s dated previously.”
Clearly, Lindsay’s predictions are ridiculous, but to be fair, she’s using her reputation as a psychic in the most effective way possible–by telling other people that they’re fat and they’re soon to be dumped by their significant others.
After all, anyone claiming to have psychic abilities is 100 percent full of it, but anyone bashing their social betters in truly petty fashion is just giving you their version of the truth.
Damn, we’re just full of lessons for the kids today.
Every once in a while, a celebrity couple comes along that makes so much sense you wonder how you their perfection for one another never occurred to you before.
But in the case of Drake and Bella Hadid, you have to forgive yourself, because no one really thinks about Bella Hadid on regular basis, do they?
Anyway, it looks as though these two have been engaging in lanky, sullen sex for several months now.
"It started out casual, but they’re definitely serious now," a source tells Us Weekly.
"They’ve been meeting up and going out for romantic dinners."
The insider adds that Drake and Bella are far more than friends with benefits, and their relationship appears to have already reached the "exclusive" stage.
In fact, it seems Drizzy went all out on Bella's recent birthday, dropping tens of thousands on a lavish party for the model and her friends.
“[Drake] planned it and paid for everything," says the source.
Now that the word is out that Drake was the one to finance the soiree, fans are reading way into Bella's birthday Instagram post.
“Thank you for all of your birthday wishes and love … I’m exploding with happiness and so thankful for all of the amazing people in my life. I love you," she wrote.
In all likelihood, it was just a generic message to her friends and family.
Unless ... was she telling Drake she loves him?!
Probably not, but if the rumors that these two have been hooking up since June are true, they might actually be at that point in their relationship.
Anyway, both parties have gone through messy high-profile breakups, so fans are all psyched about the possibility of the two of them closing out 2017 together.
Bella and The Weeknd broke up last year after dating for several months.
And Drake has been dumped by Rihanna approximately 37 times, by our count, so it'll be nice to see him move on with someone new.
Unless it means no more breakup ballads.
If that's the case, we need to start a GoFundMe to bribe Bella to end this thing, ASAP.
We need Sad Drizzy in our lives.
The House of Jonas is about to be merged with The House of Stark.
For better and for worse, in sickness and in health.
Until death does Jos Jonas and Sophie Turner apart.
This is a long and winding way of saying the following:
The singer and the actress are engaged!
The famous couple shared the exciting news with corresponding Instagram posts on Sunday afternoon.
They each shared an image of the Game of Thrones star with her hand on top of the singer’s, showing off the beautiful engagement ring against their black clothes.
“I said yes,” Turner captioned her photo, while the 28-year-old artist added:
“She said yes.”
The celebrities tagged each other in the post and Jonas’ father, Kevin Jonas Sr., commented on Turner’s post writing:
“We are so happy to welcome you to our family!”
The DNCE frontman’s brothers and former band mates, Nick and Kevin Jonas, were also among the first to congratulate the couple.
“YES!!!” Nick wrote, as Kevin similarly jumped in with, “Yeah!!!!!!!”
They're a family of few words. But great looks.
An insider previously told Us Weekly that Jonas and Turner are perfect for one another, speculating that this day may be on the horizon.
"They are madly in love," this source said, adding:
"She's young but mature and comes from a small English town, so it's not that out of the ordinary and age doesn't create an issue.
"They are really good together and his friends and family love her and vice versa, but they aren't rushing to get married."
Jonas and Turner have been dating for about a year.
Talk of a romance blossomed after they were spotted attending a Kings of Leaon concert together, although the stars didn't confirm their relationship until earlier this year.
They did so when Turner uploaded a photo of the musician smoking a cigar on a boat in Miami.
Jonas had previously dated such stars as Demi Lovato, Ashley Greene and Gigi Hadid. It's an impressive list.
Turner, conversely, was a relative unknown prior to striking it huge as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. She doesn't have an extensive, public dating history.
We're so very happy for these two!
Our only question now remains: What should be their couple nickname?
It's gonna happen, folks.
It's really, truly, finally, actually gonna happen.
Following weeks and weeks of endless rumors surrounding the status of their relationship, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are at last prepared to tell the world they're engaged.
Numerous insiders have told Us Weekly that the handsome 33-year old quietly asked for his girlfriend's hand in marriage at some recent point in the past.
However, Harry supposedly wanted to "enjoy the [engagement] before word" leak out, which is why the pair has held off on telling anyone outside their parents.
Still, an official announcement will allegedly be coming soon.
This is approximately the 97th report we've found online this fall of Markle and Harry either being engaged or planning to be engaged.
For those wondering what the heck is taking so long, a source explains to this tabloid that it's actually a safety issue.
Markle is still filming Suits Season 7 and "it would be a security nightmare" if the public knew she was engaged to Harry while she was doing so.
“She’d be followed everywhere [in Toronto]," this friend says.
We guess that makes some sense.
But isn't she followed everywhere now?
How much difference would it really make if there's a diamond ring on her finger?
Heck, speculation about the future of Markle and Harry has grown so strong that jewelers are even on record with the type of engagement ring she'll be receiving.
After shooting on Suits is complete, “she’ll relocate to London for sure," Us Weekly writes, adding:
There, she’ll be on hand to help map out what one insider refers to as “a detailed media rollout.”
This is how this type of thing typically goes for The Royal Family.
It's not as if they just appear on the cover of a magazine and scream to the world, "SHE SAID YES!"
Many likely remember how Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their 2010 betrothal in a number of interviews a month after William proposed in Kenya.
We should be using that as an example of what to expect down the line.
Harry and Markle “will most likely hold a small photo call at Kensington Palace, with just one photographer and journalist invited,” says this insider.
“On the same day, they’ll do a TV interview that will be syndicated around the world.”
Don't be fooled by how quiet the stars have been over the last couple months, either.
They know this is a big deal. They know what they want to do for the announcement and even for the wedding.
“These things are planned early in advance," Us Weekly concludes.
For about a year now, the world has been wondering when Prince Harry will pop the question to Meghan Markle.
Naturally, there were engagement rumors during Harry's previous longterm relationships with Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, but they were never quite this persistent.
And while there's been no official announcement thus far, Harry and Meghan keep giving subtle indications that an engagement is on the way.
In fact, there are many who believe it's already happened, and the royal couple is simply keeping the news to themselves for the time being.
Back in August, Harry and Meghan traveled to Africa as part of a celebration for her 36th birthday.
Many thought that Meghan would return from the trip with some new bling to flaunt, but alas, she arrived back London ring-less.
Last week, Harry and Meghan headed to Toronto for the Invictus games, and again, Royal watchers were convinced Harry would seize the opportunity to propose.
After all Toronto is Meghan's adopted hometown, and several members of her family live there.
It seemed like a safe assumption that Harry would take advantage of the setting to ask Meghan to be his wife.
It doesn't seem like it played out that way, but those who know the couple best say Meghan is not concerned.
"Toronto was an amazing experience for Harry," a source close to Harry tells E! News.
"Everything to do with Invictus went according to plan and without hiccups. An uplifting and positive week spent doing what he loves most surrounded by good friends and the most important woman in his life."
The insider adds that Harry spent a great deal of time with Meghan's mother while they were in Ontario:
"This week wasn't the first time that Harry met Doria," says the tipster.
"They actually met late last year so they're very close now. Doria sees Harry as one of the family and he sees her like family too. Harry is has become close with all of Meghan's closest friends ... these are people who have welcomed him with warm and open arms and he's really felt the love and protection."
The source says that while Harry has yet to get down on one knee, the engagement is basically a done deal:
"While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it's fair to say they're as good as engaged now," the insider claims.
"They've spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already."
A different informant takes things a step further, telling Us Weekly:
"I think it's already happened but they're holding the news back until she has finished on Suits."
"I've never seen them happier. It's amazing," the source adds.
Of course, as many who have waited on a concrete sign of commitment from a reluctant partner can attest, "as good as engaged" isn't engaged.
If only there were someone who could offer Meghan advice on how to wait out a royal proposal with dignity. Hmmm...
Just joshin' with ya, Kate!
It happened to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
It happened to Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.
Heck, it just happened to Fergie and Josh Duhamel.
No matter how happy and in love a couple in Hollywood may seem, you simply never know if they will last or not. It's hard not to be a cynic.
This may explain why divorce chatter continues to follow around Chip and Joanna Gaines, the beloved twosome at the center of HGTV's Fixer Upper.
They have four children. Their chemistry on screen is undeniable. But is it real?
Or is it just a show for the cameras?
In an interview this week with Jenna Bush Hager on The Today Show, Chip and Joanna did all they could to set the romantic record straight.
"It’s funny, when I think about these circumstances, I think they’re hilarious," Chip said in a pre-taped segment, adding:
"I'm like, ‘I can’t believe that these things are happening to us.’ Because part of me feels, who would care about that?"
Who would care about their love lives enough to conjure up such sordid rumors, in other words?!?
What does Joanna think when it comes to tabloids or websites trying to stir up controversy between her and her goofball of a husband?
"I just don't know what’s going on. So then I’ll hear someone come up to me and say, ‘I hear you and Chip are getting a divorce!’ And I’ll be like, ‘Where did you hear that?’
"I don’t know any of this!'"
Joanna, who specializes in interior design, wants to make sure fans do not believe what they read.
She wants everyone to know that none of this break-up talk comes from her or Chip... or anyone that really knows her or Chip.
"We do our due diligence in letting people know as much as we can, ‘This isn’t us. Don’t be scammed,'" says Joanna.
Last month, in response to a question on Twitter about whether he was splitting from his wife, Chip also aimed to be as clear as possible.
No words were minced. No bushes were beaten around.
"Won't ever happen.. you can take that to the bank!" Gaines Tweeted, adding that Joanna is the "#loveOfMyLife."
How sweet, right?
Instead of personal life drama, these HGTV stars are focused on their professional universe.
Fixer Upper is headed into its fifth season in their hometown of Waco, Texas - and there's no end in sight.
"As long as it can work in Waco, in our backyard, it works for us," Chip said on Today, concluding:
"We’ve got four kids who need us, we’ve got a business here that needs us, and something about our marriage - we do better when we’re on our home turf."
"Home is the most important thing and the fact that we get to be a part of that is an honor," Joanna adds.
Man, we adore these two. We hope they never change.
It's been over a year since the last time Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber broke up.
We've lost count of just how many times Justin and Selena split over the years, and frankly, we imagine they have, as well.
These days, Selena is dating The Weeknd, and it looks as though Jelena is well and truly a thing of the past.
But don't tell that to the millions of Justin fans who are still holding out hope for a reconciliation.
Yes, like the Robsten obsessives who refused to accept that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had broken up, there are thousands of social media users who maintain that Justin and Selena will find their way back to one another someday.
And for some reason, they've decided to target their frustrations at Selena's personal assistant, Teresa Mingus.
Teresa posted a photo of Selena and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) with a caption that drove Beliebers up a wall.
"In an industry that’s so hard to be loyal and love, these two made it happen," Mingus wrote on the photo below:
We waded into the swamp of foolishness that is the comments section on the photo to share with you the most ridiculous pleas from the Jelena faithful:
"True Love always finds its way."
"Love over promo. REAL love always wins."
And of course, this gem which appears to have been posted by about a dozen different users:
"Never Say Never @SelenaGomez @JustinBieber"
There were many variations on the theme that Selena and Abel's relationship is some kind of promotional stunt (as though either party needs the added press, or would stand to benefit from a fake relationship).
Most of these read along the lines of "Abelena is PR" or "Abelena is promo."
You get the point. It's basically the Jelena fan equivalent of calling everything you don't like "fake news."
And it's equally dumb.
Look, folks, we live in the world of celebrity gossip.
We eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff, so we're the last people to dismiss your emotional attachment to your favorite celebrity couples.
But to paraphrase Selena's BFF, Bieber and Gomez are never, ever, ever getting back together - and that's a good thing.
By all appearances and based on the accounts of those who knew them best, this was not healthy for either party.
Both Selena and Justin seem happier and more stable these days, so maybe just let that relationship rest in peace?
No? Gonna continue to obsess over a on-again, off-again romance that started when they were both in their teens?
You go ahead with that.
Carrie Ann Inaba and Robb Derringer have split up just nine months after getting engaged.
A source close to the Dancing with the Stars judge confirmed the sad news to PEOPLE.
Rumors have been swirling over the last few days that the relationship is over, and now we have official confirmation.
Derringer proposed to Inaba in December during a romantic moment at the scene of their first date somewhere along the California coast.
It appeared that wedding planning was well underway just last month when Inaba happily revealed some of the details of the event to People.
“I’ve thought more about the wedding than the reception,” she began.
“A wedding is sacred. It’s a profound moment in one’s life and we both want to focus more on the ceremony and make sure it represents our love and truth in a very intimate and special way.”
She revealed in the same interview that she and Derringer had a thing for the ocean and felt like it was instrumental to their relationship.
Well, it's not uncommon to feel attached to the place of your first date and engagement, we guess.
“We both have an affinity for the ocean. We had our first date near the ocean, we got engaged near the ocean. The ocean will be a central theme in our wedding,” says Inaba. “And we’re guessing and hoping for a sunset to remember.”
The rumor mill went into overdrive over the weekend when she hosted an event in Hawaii for former Dancing with the Stars star, Kristi Yamaguchi.
Robb and the engagement ring were nowhere in sight, and the star had her mother with her for moral support. It certainly seemed like the couple was on thin ice.
That was not the first sign that there was trouble in paradise, however.
Carrie Ann shared the below image on Instagram just last week.
The ominous picture reads, “Just when I think I’ve learned the way to live, life changes.”
There has been no official confirmation about what paved the way for the split, but it does sound like it came out of nowhere if the wedding was being discussed just weeks ago.
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below!
If you're a Teen Mom: OG fan, then by now, you've probably heard the news that Amber Portwood and Matt Baier have broken up.
Fans have been hoping these two would part ways pretty much from the day they went public with their relationship, and now that Amber has a new boyfriend, it seems it's safe to say she and Matt are well and truly over.
But while TMOG viewers may be thrilled by the split, Matt is most definitely not.
The newly single Baier opened up about his split from Amber in a recent interview with E! News:
"I'm trying to do a lot of work on myself because I realize now the downfall of our relationship was my fault," he explained.
"When you're thrust into the spotlight like that, it can affect you. My mistake was taking our relationship for granted."
Baier says the high-profile nature of the relationship was part of the problem (which is odd, because he never would have met Amber if she weren't on TV), but he also accepts responsibility for being a less-than-stellar partner:
"What I've learned from this is you have to do the work," he told the outlet.
"You have to make the person you're with feel loved every single day. I forgot to do that and now I'm paying the price."
Matt says he's full of regrets over the way his relationship played out, and if given a second chance, he would change everything about the way he behaved.
"If I got a do-over," he said, "I would do everything differently. I should have listened to her more."
The couple was filming a new season of the We TV reality series Marriage Boot Camp at the time of their split.
Matt left the set ahead of schedule and took off for Vegas - where he's apparently been living ever since.
"I went to Vegas to get my head around the split. Ultimately, my hope was to get a place where Amber could come visit me and we could work on our issues. Obviously, that didn't happen."
But despite the fact that Amber is in a new relationship, Matt is still hopeful that she'll find her way back to him:
"I'll hold out hope for a reconciliation. But if nothing else, I hope we can stay friends," Baier says.
"We started off as best friends and that's what I miss the most from her—her friendship. To not have that is painful. When something happens, my natural instinct still is to call her and tell her everything. She was my family."
As though that's not depressing enough, Baier concluded the info with some insights into his day-to-day life post-Amber:
"I've been making a living through my [poker] winnings," he says.
"That said, I'm not really enjoying it. This isn't the life I want to live."
Yeesh. Matt may not have been the perfect boyfriend, but here's hoping he's able to pull himself out of what sounds like a pretty considerable funk.
Watch Teen Mom: OG online to relive Matt and Amber's tumultuous relationship.
Really, if these couples can't make it... who can?
We're still shocked that these Hollywood marriage didn't work out. Toggle through this slideshow of most surprising divorces and react now: Can you believe they're over?!?
Can true love even exist in Hollywood at this point? Or anywhere for that matter?

2. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
3. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
4. Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner
5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

It looks like just as many questions are hanging over Carmelo Anthony's personal life as are hanging over the basketball star's professional life.
As NBA fans continue to wonder whether the proficient scorer will score points with the Knicks or some other team next season, celebrity gossip followers are now asking a similar question about his marriage.
Will Melo continue to drop score with LaLa Anthony (in bed)?
Or will the couple finalize its divorce and go in different directions?
Carmelo and LaLa seemingly broke up in mid-April, and for a very understandable reason:
According to various reports, Anthony didn't just cheat on his wife... he cheated on his wife AND got his mistress pregnant.
This rumor has not been verified, however, and LaLa has not spoken out publicly to castigate Carmelo for his alleged actions.
Over the past few weeks, meanwhile, Anthony has first wished his estranged wife a happy birthday on Instagram - and now he's shared a rather sexy snapshot of LaLa as well.
In the above photograph, the television personality is wearing a short silver dress and her husband is clearly taken with her appearance in it.
As a caption, Carmelo simply included three emojis along with the snapshot: eyes, a heart and a world.
The Anthonys share 10-year-old son named Kiyan and have been married for seven years.
They are supposedly living apart at the moment, but both stars still reside in New York City.
Moreover, Carmelo is reportedly refusing to be traded from the Knicks to any team that takes him too far away from his only child, which is an admirable stance to take.
And it doesn't sound as if LaLa is anxious to legally put an end to their romance any time soon, either.
"You know marriages are tough … it's filled with ups and downs. We are just going through a time right now," she said on The Wendy Williams Show on June 27.
She added at the time:
"Him and I are the best of friends and our number-one commitment is to our son... and we have to set an example for Kiyan and that's what's most important to me.
"I would absolutely never say a bad thing about my husband. That’s my son’s father and he is an amazing dad."
If only all celebrities going through a break up would share this sentiment, right?
In conclusion, LaLa earned our respect by saying of Carmelo and their future as husband and wife:
"I don't know what the future holds. I just know that we are doing an incredible job again being parents to our son. We are the best of friends.
"I've been with Melo since he was 19 years old. You're not with somebody that long, and it just goes out the window.
"I love him with all my heart, and we are the best of friends."
It's been almost three years since we first learned that Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are dating.
At first, the couple was a staple in the tabloids, which makes sense.
Much was made of the fact that this was Rob's first serious relationship since his breakup with Kristen Stewart, which was one of the ugliest and most high-profile celebrity splits in recent memory.
The couple eventually disappeared from the headlines, as neither is really in pursuit of mainstream fame, and their doesn't appear to be anything messy about their relationship.
Rob has spent years going to great lengths to protect his privacy and it seems to finally be working.
He and FKA are rarely mentioned in the press these days.
But that doesn't mean they're not still going strong ... and it certainly doesn't mean that Twilight obsessives won't be either thrilled or devaststed by the news that Pattinson and Twigs are engaged.
The news was first broken quite some time ago by an unusual source:
It was the rapper T-Pain who first revealed that Pattinson had proposed to Twigs, and while we're firm believers that all major news stories should be broken by T-Pain, that doesn't make it official.
Thought T-Pain made his claim over two years ago, neither Pattinson nor Twigs had confirmed the reports until now.
Today, Rob sat for an interview with Howard Stern, and the King of All Media used his incredible ability to get celebrities to bare their souls, asking Pattinson point-blank if he's engaged.
"Yeah, kind of," Rob replied.
Stern quipped that Twigs would probably like to hear a bit more enthusiasm, but Pattinson replied that the couple is forced to keep it low-key as a result of Twilight "crazies."
"It's one of the most frustrating things in the world, because you want to be able to do that [show PDA], but to get kind of stuck in a position where, like, you have to make the decision ... Do you want to let, kind of, crazy people in, because for whatever reason with Twilight, there's like, a crack troop of crazies who think every decision you're making is creating some kind of conspiracy," he said.
"And so you kind of think, to protect it, I want to create a big boundary between it, but then it makes it difficult for your actual relationship."
So Twigs was probably cool with his answer.
But the Twi-hards, a notoriously volatile lot, are likely pissed.
Anyway, our congrats go out to Rob and FKA.
Y'all might want to lay low for a few days.
Last week, we learned that Ben Affleck is dating Lindsay Shookus, a 37-year-old Saturday Night Live producer, whom he reportedly met while rehearsing an appearance on the show.
Affleck just finalized his divorce from Jennifer Garner in April, but the couple has been separated since 2015.
So surely there's no great scandal in Ben moving on and dating someone new at this point, right?
Ha! This is the Batfleck we're talking about, and whether it's justified or not, there will always be countless pearl-clutching gasp-takes about everything he does.
And in this case, the situation might have involved actual clutching of pearls.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves ...
As you may have heard, it's been rumored that Ben cheated on Jennifer with Lindsay.
In fact, some have gone so far as to say that Affleck and Shookus carried on an affair behind Garner's for years, and that the couple parted ways after Jen found out about it.
Conflicting stories abound, but right now, the consensus seems to be that Garner is pissed about the relationship, which lends credence to the theory that it overlapped with her marriage.
One insider tells Radar Online that Ben and Lindsay hit it off from the first time they met, and
“There was an immediate spark,” says a source close to the situation.
“Ben and Lindsay flirted and stayed in touch through Ben’s appearances on SNL.”
Apparently, Affleck and Shookus weren't great at keeping things on the down-low, and Jen found out about the affair after realizing that Ben had made several extravagant jewelry purchases.
“Jen met face-to-face with Lindsay and demanded she return the jewelry,” the source revealed.
“Lindsay says she’d return it, but only if Ben asked for it back.”
Yes, the insider claims there was an actual face-to-face confrontation between Garner and Shookus.
Sounds like things came close to getting very ugly.
Fortunately, Garner didn't feel the need to fake her own death and frame Ben for the murder.
Sorry, but it's impossible to hear news of Ben Affleck marital troubles and not think of Gone Girl.
The unthinkable has happened... America's most infamous liar is a father to a beautiful son.
The father is Ryan Lochte, and he's already hitting up Instagram with pictures to show off Caiden Zane Lochte to the world.
It's been a few days since we graced you with the news that the world champion swimmer was a father and now, we have the first pictures of the little guy for all of you to feast your eyes on.
Have a look below.
"Now this is what it's all about..... family!!!!!!! #Mommy #daddy #CZL"
The pretty picture was almost upstaged by Kayla Rae Reid's side dose of cleavage, but that's a story for another day.
According to E! News, they are "so excited to be parents." Isn't everyone when they try for a baby and said baby arrives?
Kayla and Ryan got engaged in October last year, and they revealed the baby news just months after. But people questioned whether Ryan was lying about the baby news because he's a well-known $hit talker.
Kayla also debuted her son on Instagram with a lengthy post that would make you think it was an advertisement for how amazing Ryan Lochte is.
"My little pumpkin and that smirk," the Playboy model said.
"After almost 26 hours of an unfortunate induced labor, the greatest joy entered our lives. Caiden Zane Lochte born 6-8-17. 7lbs and 14oz of pure bliss." Reid continued, "I Immediately placed him on my chest, he looked me in the eyes and just gazed. I burst into tears, and I will cherish that unforgettable moment for the rest of my life."
"That moment, I felt so many sweet unexplainable feelings and an infinite amount of love. He is amazing in every single way, and I'm so lucky to be his mommy."
"Ryan stayed by side the entire and encouraged me along the way," the proud mother added.
"To see the look on his face when he saw Caiden was adorable and priceless, it was such an emotional moment for the both of us. I'm in awe every day, and I love watching our little man grow daily. His face melts my heart. #love #family #CaidenZaneLochte"
Considering all of the controversy surrounding Ryan Lochte lying about events that transpired in Rio during the summer Olympics, it sounds like 2017 is going to be the year Ryan grows up.
To think, the only reason Lochte and Reid became a thing was that they bumped into one another in Hollywood. How's that for fate? If you're looking for love, don't try bumping into people. You may find yourself arrested... unless you're Ryan Lochte.
There's also word on the street that Ryan will be naming their next kid Jeah, because, well, he's Ryan Lochte and he can do whatever he wants.
We kid. Mostly.
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below!
On Sunday night, Ariana Grande headlined a star-studded concert to benefit the victims of the Manchester bombing that killed 22 and injured dozens more.
Several A-listers performed at the show, but all eyes were on Grande, who’s previous concert was the site of the terrorist attack.
Today, video of Grande’s tearful finale has gone viral has justifiably gone viral.
Like so many others who were on hand that tragic night, Grande no doubt has a long way to go in her personal healing process, but her musical tribute to the lives that were taken offered reason to hope that healing is possible.
And now it seems that the night may have been a profoundly emotional one for Ariana for reasons aside from the obvious.
As you can see from some of the photos taken that night, Ariana was moved to tears multiple times over the course of the evening.
But some fans have been focusing more on the singer’s ring finger than on her face:
Sources close to Ariana say the trauma of the attack actually brought her closer to boyfriend Mac Miller, who’s provided much-needed emotional support and a shoulder to cry on.
Now, many believe that Mac may have expressed his desire to be there for Ariana forever by popping the question at some point in the past week.
There’s been no official word from the couple, but photos from last night’s concert do seem to show the Ariana sporting a sixzable rock on her left hand.
Tellingly, neither party has taken to social media to deny the rumors, although that could be out of a desire to keep the focus on Manchester and the Red Cross fund that’s been set up to support victims of the bombing.
Sources close to Ariana tell Hollywood Life that marriage has been on her mind for quite some time:
“They talk about marriage all the time with each other, almost to the point where friends are rolling their eyes over it,” an insider tells Hollywood Life.
Mac joined Ariana on stage last night, and fans erupted in applause at the sight of the couple.
It may be quite some time before we find out for certain if the performers have plans to spend the rest of their lives together.
But at this point, it seems there’s no doubt that Mac will continue to help Ariana through the most difficult period of her young life.
It's only been a week since we learned that Taylor Swift is dating Joe Alwyn, and fortunately, the famously unlucky-in-love singer is taking her time and really letting this relationship develop gradually.
Just kidding, she's running into this thing like she just got word that the Single People Apocalypse is coming and only those in serious relationships will be saved.
At first Taylor tried to keep her relationship with Alwyn a secret.
Since that didn't work, they've apparently decided to just say screw it and start picking out china patterns.
Okay, so they're not quite getting married, but they are moving at a speed that should ensure Taylor will have a new breakup album in stores by the end of summer.
According to UK tabloid The Sun, Joe is currently in the midst of moving to Los Angeles so that he can spend more time with Tay.
No word on whether or not they'll live together once he relocates, but it would be a little weird to move several thousand miles for someone and then get a separate place, wouldn't it?
“Joe really wants to be near Taylor and moving to the US will mean they can spend much more time together," a source tells The Sun.
"He’s a real family man and is close to his parents, so he will still be a regular visitor to their London home.
The insider adds:
"That means Taylor will still be able to continue her love affair with London where she can walk around unnoticed and live a relatively normal life.”
Oh, Taylor has a thing for London?
We never would've guessed from the fact that her last eleventy bajillion boyfriends were all British.
Anyway, we're sure Alwyn really does believe the move will help his career, but not because he'll be closer to Hollywood.
Living in SoCal will help raise his public profile because Taylor is a tabloid magnet and summer is when she seems to be at her most scandalous.
Just last night, Katy Perry finally confirmed her feud with Swift.
If Alwyn is smart, he'll have his ass walking up and down Sunset in an "I [heart] T.S." shirt by this weekend.
