And the flood of collectable china begins. Prince William finally agrees to tie the royal knot with his long-time commoner girlfriend Kate Middleton.
No date has been announced as yet, but it is tricky business to plan a Royal wedding. Prince Phillip turns 90 soon, Prince William also has a birthday in the summer, and the 30th anniversary of Charles & Diana is also on the summer docket which is sure to be an emotional moment for William.
Most are expecting a white wedding and while it could happen as soon as March, a Summer-Fall 2011 wedding seems most likely.
While former San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson had some trouble hanging on to the football, he appears to have much better hands for catching passes from Jessica Simpson than any NFL-caliber quarterback. With a ruby diamond-studded engagement ring, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are officially engaged. Confirmation comes from none other than Papa Joe Simpson himself via Twitter:
This is a second marriage for both Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, so we can only hope this isn't just another instant replay!
"She's in love with him, but isn't sure about it, yet she doesn't want to tell him no."That 'no' has to do with a proposed reality TV show (not engagement) that Avril's boyfriend "Hills" co-star Brody Jenner has been trying desperately to convince Avril and studio executives to do. Avril Lavigne is careful about her image and seems reluctant to take her career in the same direction as Jessica Simpson etc..
But with Avril falling deeper in love with Brody, one has to wonder if she'll be able to fend off Brody's reality TV push, especially if a marriage engagement is part of the script? Stay tuned...
While Lindsay Lohan is off to jail trying to figure out how she can stay sober for a few weeks, Christina Applegate is showing us all how to be a real person, and a real celebrity.
Christina Applegate has had quite a run in recent years. Enough bad stuff strung together to sink plenty of Hollywood fauna. Following a divorce of musician Jonathan Schaech, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy.
But all of that bad luck is now behind her and following the announcement that she was engaged to Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble comes word from her publicist that the happy couple are now expecting a baby.
No word yet on an official wedding date, but who cares? We wish Christina and Martyn the best and hope for a nice, easy and enjoyable pregnancy for Christina. Lord knows, she deserves it!!
Just in case you ever thought producing and starring in a hit TV series was harder than planning a wedding, guess what? You would be wrong!
One of Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriends and current confidante (bucket of salt, please) is claiming that Simon is so overwhelmed with wedding details, decisions and attention that he's getting cold feet about the whole thing.
"He's a bit overwhelmed by the whole marriage thing (please note, they are not married yet) and has no plans at the moment. He hates everyone talking about it. I really don't know if he will go through with it. If he is really true to himself he probably won't."via azcentral
Khloe Kardashian and her L.A. Lakers basketball hubby Lamar Odom are in no rush to have kids. But that didn't stop her from blabbing to Steppin' Out...
"I'm not sitting here staring at an ovulation calendar. I'm not saying to Lamar, 'Okay, it's time, let's go!' Yes, I'm not on the pill, but people stir my words around. Let's just say sometimes I talk too much."Ah, ok Khloe. You keep telling Lamar that you're in no rush to have kids. If he's buying that, good for you honey!
Slow news day.
Lorenzo Lamas' daughter Shayne Lamas has spilled the beans on her father's engagement to new girlfriend Shawna Craig. For the record, this is Lorenzo Lamas' fifth attempt at marriage and his previous wife was also a 'Shauna'. Hmmm. That was Shauna Sand a porn star who Lorenzo not only divorced but got a restraining order against her. Also for the record, Lorenzo's newest wife-to-be Shawna Craig is one-year younger than his daughter Shayne. Are you creeped out yet? We are.
It's now official. Nicole Richie, singer, daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie and reality-TV actor is engaged to Good Charlotte vocalist Joel Madden. She confirmed the engagement on David Letterman recently and is now happily showing off her weird-looking round engagement ring. This is one of those no-biggee deals, as the two have been together since 2006 and already have two kids.
Nicole Richie's engagement ring is a 4-carat ring, it's round, kinda-weird lookin, and clearly nowhere near a Mike Comrie million-dollar special! But we're happy for the two of them, and especially for Harlow Winter Kate Madden and Sparrow James Midnight Madden who now have two soon-to-be wedded parents for a Mom and Dad. Too bad Nicole can't eat the ring, because she always looks like she could use a good meal.
Hilary Duff and Canadian hockey player Mike Comrie are now officially engaged, and boy does Comrie know how to score! The engagement ring he gave Hilary Duff is apparently worth upwards of $1 million. And if the ring alone wasn't enough excitement, the happy newly engaged couple are rumored to be on the verge of buying a $10 million home in Beverly Hills.
Now you may be wondering how Mike Comrie, not exactly a superstar hockey player can afford all of this? Truth be told, Mike Comrie comes from a very, very wealthy family. Don't get me wrong here, Mike does well for himself and earns approx $2.5 million annually playing NHL hockey. But his father Bill Comrie was the founder of the furniture enterprise 'The Brick'. For those who don't know, The Brick Group is believed to be the second-largest furniture, bedding, appliances and electronics retailer in Canada with sales in excess of $1.3 billion. So while Hilary Duff will out-earn Mike forever, Mike will clearly out-inherit her :-)
Good luck to the happy sushi-eating Hollywood-Hockey couple!

Rumors are now circulating that two time divorcee Britney Spears is determined to marry her latest agent Jason Trawick. In addition to wearing a sparking new ring on her wedding finger, an insider has told Life & Style Magazine that Britney is intent on marrying her current beau;
"Britney told (dad) Jamie and (mom) Lynne she wants to marry Jason. They weren’t shocked, but they’re worried Britney is confusing close friendship with romance."
Despite their trepidations, Britney's mother has approves of Trawick's suitability as a husband according to friends. In a recent issue of US Weekly, a family friend says that Lynne thinks Trawick's "the kind of man you would dream of your daughter marrying,"
Many credit Trawick for helping Britney through the rough patch in her career that most of us will remember for moments of excess, depravity and madness. That poor girl went from exposing herself to making cough syrup cocktails and undergoing involuntary commitment to a mental health facility. If Trawick really did save her from that mess, I can't imagine anyone better that she could spend her life with.
Trawick is no stranger to high profile celebrity clients. An agent with the William Morris Agency, Trawick also represents both Hilary and Haylie Duff and Paris Hilton. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first time one of his clients has been insistent on marrying him.
It was widely reported that Transformers star Megan Fox and ex-90210 hunk Brian Austin Green had called off their engagement and broken up. As it turns out, the couple are still very much together, but in counseling. I don't know about you, but if you're in counseling before you get married...but I digress. I guess some kudos should be thrown their way for not giving up on love so easily.
"They decided to enter counseling in hopes of staying together. It was a mutual decision. Lots of couples go to therapy together, and they are committed to try and make it work." - Touch Weekly
