Just about a month after the exciting news broke that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were engaged, the hunky singer and the gorgeous actress accomplished two things on Saturday:
They confirmed the huge development.
They celebrated in a very special way with family and friends.
“Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love,” Jonas captioned the above snapshot on Instagram this morning.
As you can see, it depicts the famous and beloved couple embracing, as Chopra places her hand (and massive engagement ring) on his chest.
The Quantico star, meanwhile, shared the same picture on her social media page and wrote along with it:
“Taken.. With all my heart and soul."
These beautiful words were just the beginning, however.
The confirmation from the celebrities came on the same day their families united for the first time to celebrate the soon-to-be husband and wife’s engagement in Chopra’s home country of India.
And both Jonas and Chopra included many pictures from the unique party on their respective Instagram pages...
"The only way to do this... with Family and God. Thank you all for your wishes and blessings," wrote Chopra as a caption to the gallery of images we've posted above and below.
The truly awesome photos featured Chopra and Jonas posing for another engagement shot, along with photographs taken while the two participated in a Hindu prayer ceremony.
Fans have been curious about this relationship ever since the stars walked the red carpet together at the Met Gala last year.
Speculation then ramped upto fevered pitch after People Magazine reported an engagement...
... and the director of Chopra's latest project Tweeted last month that the actress was out of his "Bharat" film with a thinly veiled reference to singer-actor Jonas.
"Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her," Ali Abbas Zafar wrote, adding at the time:
"Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life."
Jonas, of course, rose to fame as a member of a boy band made up of him and two of his brothers.
The group has since split, but Jonas has maintained his fame via a solo career and a few acting gigs.
Chopra, meanwhile, is actually good friends with Meghan Markle and Serena Williams.
She just wrapped up a leading role in the ABC drama Quantico, which marked her first starring role in American television.
The actress was a a giant name in Bollywood prior to her job on this series.
“So happy for the engagement of our son @nickjonas and we welcome @priyankachopra into our family with love and excitement,” wrote Kevin, Sr. on Instagram this week.
As far as proposal details go?
All we know for sure is that Jonas popped the big question back in July.
“His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her,” an insider tells People.
Well, yeah! We'd sure hope so! The two are set to get married!
They have our very best wishes.
Brace yourselves, 90 Day Fiance fans.
We now know exactly what the stork is bringing Russ and Paola Mayfield.
In a very sweet and revealing Instagram message, the veteran reality stars alerted fans to the gender of the baby growing inside of Paola.
Are you ready to find out?
Are you sure?
Okay. Here we go...
IT'S A BOY!
We'll let Paola explain in further detail, per her caption to the photos above and below:
We are having a BOY!!!!
I didn’t care if it was a boy or a girl, I just wanted a healthy baby and to be able to have it in my arms as soon as possible.
Of course I’m always rooting for a girl but a boy is a blessing as well and I know my husband is really excited!
This is an amazing experience now I can finally say I’m pregnant!!! I’m having a little boy.
The Mayfields announced their first child was on the way back in late July.
They did so via the following statement to Us Weekly:
"This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents - we are already so in love with our baby.
"We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.
"God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat."
The couple also included the following image with this adorable confirmation:
News that Paola and Russ are expecting was met with surprise and also joy by fans of 90 Day Fiance.
We say surprise because there had been chatter as recently as a few weeks ago that the twosome's marriage was on the rocks, as they seemingly could never settle the tension that existed over Paola so often posing near-nude.
And we say joy because Paola suffered a miscarriage last year.
This tragedy took a toll on the relationship in a variety of ways.
But Russ has strongly defended his union every step of the way, telling off trolls on Instagram not long before this pregnancy news went viral.
"Keep hating and commenting to better your dull lives because your opinions are meaningless in my eyes," Russ said at this time, pulling nary a punch and concluding:
"You’re only hurting yourself hiding behind your keyboard. Which proves nothing to you or me...
"I am proud of where I come from,. And where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."
So there you have it. Well said.
Congratulations on the impending little boy, Russ and Paola!
Leah Messer's love life is a subject of constant fascination among Teen Mom 2 fans.
For a while there it looked as though Leah would get back together with Jeremy Calvert, but when that reconciliation fizzled out, Ms. Messer quickly rebounded.
These days, Leah is dating Jason Jordan, and while he seems to make her immensely happy, some fans have taken issue with the budding romance.
Over the weekend, Leah documented her latest couple's getaway on Instagram, and some fans saw the pics as an opportunity to reiterate their complaints.
For one thing, Jason is much older than Leah (she's 26; he's 38).
It's not the kind of cradle-robbery that makes you want to alert the authorities, but it's enough of an age gap to raise a few eyebrows.
Especially since despite the fact that he's pushing 40, Jason still seems to have quite a bit of growing up to do.
Naturally, once word of the relationship went public, fans started doing their research and dug up everything they could about Jason.
The most interesting thing they unearthed was a series of YouTube videos in which Jason played a character named West Virginia Meth Man.
Now, as far as we know, Jason never dabbled in meth himself.
And it appears he was just poking fun at some of the more, um ... colorful residents of his home state.
Still many found the skits to be in poor taste, particularly one video in which Jason (as Meth Man) commented on the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal.
"Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice," quoth Meth Man.
"Think he can go around punching women in the mouth, knocking them out cold. When I was high on meth one time I did that and nobody got mad. They just expect it out of me!"
Now, that's obviously not the most tasteful joke, but anyone accusing Jason of condoning violence against women would be willfully misrepresenting the bit.
Should he have just refrained from joking about domestic violence at all? Probably?
But the crux of the gag is that only the most repugnant individuals -- your Ray Rices and your Meth Mans -- would engage in such behavior.
To be clear, the Meth Man routine isn't particularly funny, and Leah is probably overjoyed by the fact that her boyfriend has retired the character.
But a few seriously unfunny skits shouldn't be a deal breaker -- otherwise, Ariana Grande would have to dump Pete Davidson! Zing!
Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson are currently in their honeymoon phase of marriage.
And we mean this literally:
The newlyweds are actively in Vienna, Austria, having the time of their lives after making the romantic committment of their lives.
Duggar and Swanson shared the snapshot above of themselves on this special vacation, with Josiah adding in an extended comment to Us Weekly:
“We’re so excited to be in Vienna on our honeymoon and spending this time together!
"It’s a beautiful place, with a beautiful wife. What more could a guy ask for than that?
"We are loving every minute of it. It’s still mind-blowing to think that we have the rest of our lives together. God’s goodness is overwhelming!”
Swanson also chimed in with a glowing remark about her husband and their trip.
She even included a note about why the couple selected Austria for their destination.
"We chose Austria for our honeymoon because The Sound of Music," Swanson told the aforementioned tabloid, adding in more detail:
"I’ve always wanted to come here and I’m loving all the scenery and traditional Austrian clothing. I am also loving the people and the culture.
"Travel like this reminds me that people everywhere are really the same, even if the culture and some experiences are different. People everywhere want joy, happiness and good things for their children and so much more.
"This trip makes me love people and desire to deliver God’s love and care to people more than ever before."
The Counting On cast member and his life partner exchanged vows on June 30 at John Brown University Cathedral in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
The nuptials came as a surprise to even the most ardent of TLC viewers, considering Josiah and Lauren had not revealed their wedding date ahead of time.
There was even chatter that the ceremony would take place closer to the end of the year, causing some to speculate over why the wedding was moved up.
Specifically, did the pair get married in a pinch because Swanson is pregnant?
Josiah, often considered the most rebellious of Jim Bob and Michelle's children, had previously dated Marjorie Jackson in 2015.
It then took him over two years to find someone else to court.
Eventually, though, he settled on Swanson, who has been known to wear shorts that stop above the knee, which is equivalent to starring in an adult film when it comes to the Duggars.
These crazy kids are clearly meant for each other.
"What a joy it is to be husband and wife! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!” Duggar and Swanson said about becoming husband and wife.
“What was even more perfect was to see my beautiful bride walking down the aisle.
"We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife."
As for those curious for a look at the couple's wedding and their first kiss?
Wait no further! Just click down below!
Whoa there, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin!
Get a room, will ya?!?
The singer has shared the most revealing photo yet of himself and his fiancee, posting to his wildly popular Instagram page a photo of him and Baldwin making out.
We're not even sure if making out is the proper term here, actually.
Perhaps we should go with eating each other's faces off instead.
The picture, who has received nearly six millions Likes in eight hours of being live, features Baldwin and Bieber in either a pool or a hot tub.
The model is straddling and the artist and may very well be topless, too.
Bieber is most definitely not wearing a shirt, his tattoo-filled torso making all followers drool and hate Baldwin even more than they did before.
Oh, and the famous couple is also going at it, hard, with their mouths.
See what we mean here:
Bieber did not include a caption with the photo, probably because the image clearly speaks for itself:
He and Baldwin are totally in love and cannot keep their hands off one another.
This much was made obvious when Justin and Hailey were caught swapping spit in New York City a few weeks ago, a public display of affection that proved they were back together.
Fast forward just a month or so and... BAM!
We're still having trouble processing the speed at which this all went down.
As you must know by now, however, Bieber proposed to Baldwin on a Saturday night in the Bahamas.
The news spread quickly because many witnesses were on hand to witness the magical moment, with Bieber himself confirming the bombshell about a day later.
"Plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you!" he wrote on Instagram, adding in gushing detail:
"So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY.”
Referencing a higher power and a potential for kids down the line, Justin continued:
"I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make.
"My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else.
"You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!"
Shortly after, Baldwin Tweeted her own feelings on her man and their agreement to marry:
“Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with!
"No words could ever express my gratitude.”
So there you have it.
We hear the Bieber-Baldwin wedding is already being planned and that it may be an intimate affair.
Will it take place in Justin's native country of Canada? Quite possibly.
But we still have plenty of time to uncover those details.
For now, we thought you may be curious to see where we rank Baldwin on Bieber's list of sexual conquests:
According to a new report, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are living in sin.
By living with each other!
Indeed, about one month after rumors of a Disick-Richie break-up ran rampant around the Internet, sources now tell Us Weekly that the couple isn't just going strong...
... it's taken a major step in a very serious direction.
“Scott and Sofia are moving in together,” a source tells this tabloid very simply in its latest issue, adding of the arrangement:.
“She’ll move into his house.”
The decision to shack up follows a lot of chatter about Richie ending this romance after Disick allegedly cheated on Sofia in Miami this spring.
Scott was also seen getting very close and awfully cozy with a mystery woman at Kanye West’s Ye album listening party in Wyoming on May 31.
Classic Scott Disick, right?
That's what Kourtney Kardashian would say.
Still, despite the widely held belief that Disick was sticking his penis into at least one other woman just a little while back, many people close to the situation had a feeling Richie wouldn't be able to walk away.
We guess she knew what she was getting into when she started dating Disick, right?
“It’s likely not totally over,” an insider told People Magazine of Richie and Disick in early June, right around the time of their alleged split, adding:
"They’ve broken up multiple times since they started dating and always ended up back together. No one would be surprised if they’re out again together in a few days or weeks."
Well, sure, right?
Who can resist the... charm of Scott Disick? The rugged handsomeness of Scott Disick? The ability of Scott Disick to drink a lot of alcohol in one night?
We really have no idea at this point.
Following the news of Disick’s supposed indiscretions, a confidant revealed that Richie confided in her famous father, Lionel Richie.
And how did the veteran singer respond?
Us Weekly writes that he threatened "to cut her off and write her out of his will if she continues her relationship with Scott as he thinks he’s extremely toxic for her.”
It now sounds as if Richie is willing to call this bluff.
Disick, of course, shares three kids with Kardashian: Mason, 8, Penelope, 6, and Reign, 3.
How does Kourtney feel about her ex-boyfriend's new living situation?
"She couldn’t be bothered by the drama,” says this first source. “She just cares about the kids and that they’re OK with the situation, which they are."
It also helps that Kourtney is on vacation at the moment as well.
And by the looks of things, she has every reason not to care at all about what Scott is doing.
Because look at who Kourtney is doing:
Nice catch there, Kourt.
Go ahead and suck a large one, Scott.
Well, here's a twist that nobody saw coming.
All this time we figured Tristan Thompson was groveling at Khloe Kardashian's feet, begging her to forgive him for cheating while she was carrying his child.
But according to a new report from Radar Online, Khloe is the one who's desperate to make this relationship work, despite the many, many signs that it's time to call it quits.
A source tells the site that Tristan is currently in Los Angeles with Khloe and her familly -- and he's hating every second of it.
“She will not let him leave, telling him that he has months before training season even starts,” says the insider.
Tristan is still in contact with at least one of his side-chicks, and there have been other indicators that he's eager to return to the single life.
But apparently Khloe has been turning a blind eye to all of them.
It seems Thompson is willing to compromise by allowing Khloe to accompany him back to Cleveland, but she wants no part of that plan.
“Tristan’s more than happy to take True back to Cleveland, but Khloe insists she doesn’t want to go back there for a while,” says the source.
We suppose that makes sense, as Khloe just spent the entire NBA playoffs alone at Tristan's house while he traveled with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Khloe's mother and sisters are all in LA, as well as her livelihood, and sources say she's been desperate to get back home.
But apparently, Tristan is not at all open to the idea of spending his entire summer on the West Coast.
Khloe's family has been encouraging her to dump Tristan for months, so not surprisingly, they're totally on board with letting him head back to Cleveland.
“The best thing for the both of them would be space,” the source says, noting that Khloe has been resistant to that idea, as she “wants the family thing so bad.”
Sadly, it seems Tristan is simply not on the same page:
“He feels trapped in this situation and feels Khloe’s using the baby to manipulate him into staying close to her," the insider claims.
Complicating the situation is the possibility that Tristan might get traded and wind up relocating to a city that Khloe isn't willing to live in.
We know they have a daughter together, but really -- how many warning signs can one couple ignore?
It's been almost a year since the world first learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsey Shookus are dating, and these days, the couple is reportedly ready to take the next step together.
Unfortunately, there are some sizable barriers blocking their path.
According to a new report from Entertainment Tonight Lindsey is seeking a commitment from Ben, who seems hesitant to pop the question.
But to his credit, there's a very good reason for that:
"Lindsay and Ben are very much in love,” a source tells the outlet.
“During Ben and Jennifer [Garner's] split, Lindsay truly felt villainized. Every day she spent with Ben out in the world for people to see felt like another day of public scrutiny, but her love for Ben was worth it," the insider adds.
"They both learned to stick by each other during those painful months.”
See, therein lies the issue.
The source makes it sound like Affleck and Garner's split was an ugly chapter in their lives that's now over and done with.
But the fact is Ben and Jen still aren't divorced.
Yes, despite the fact Affleck and Garner have been separated for three years, they're still legally married.
We're sure that's primarily because of legal and financial entanglements, but still ...
Lindsay probably isn't too thrilled about the situation.
The insider adds that Ben and Lindsay are planning to spend their lives together, but have thus far avoided any public discussion of marriage:
"Ben has worked incredibly hard on his sobriety and Lindsay has been his rock. He will be forever grateful for all her love and support," says the source.
"They are both constantly being asked if they are planning to tie the knot, but for now they taking it one day at a time.”
It's good that he's taking his recovery seriously, but we can't help but think Ben's leaning pretty hard on that "but, babe, my sobriety" excuse:
"Ben knows he loves Lindsay, but he wants to take things slow for the sake of his sobriety. He’s actually been told to take it slow and he's heeding that advice," the insider claims.
"Ben isn't ready to propose and has no plans to get engaged anytime soon, but Lindsay feels he is worth the wait.”
We're rooting for ya, Shook.
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?
