Everyone knows that the holiday season is one of the most romantic times of the entire year. We blame Love Actually. And now it looks like Christmas came early for famous ladies like Kelly Clarkson, Crystal Harris and Kat Von D as their beaus got them all a pretty sweet gift: An engagement ring! The trio all took to Twitter to give fans a glimpse of their new rocks. American Idol alum Clarkson flashed her bling backstage at VH1 DIVAsafter boyfriend Brandon Blackstock popped the question over the weekend.
Top DJ Deadmau5 took the opposite approach and actually proposed to girlfriend Kat Von D on Twitter this Saturday! The on again off again couple reunited in November after breaking up in September, so we’ll see if the notoriously tempestuous two-some make it to the alter. But we saved our biggest reservations for Crystal Harris, who showed off her second engagement ring from Hugh Hefner last week. Why second, you ask? Because she sold her first one after she left the 86-year-old at the alter last year. Ooof. Good luck, you crazy kids. With all these engagements in the air, we thought it was time for another round of Guess The Celeb Rock. Head on down to the gallery below and test your ring knowledge! Get the answers under the jump.
Here’s a reality TV hook that tops them all! Bobbi Kristina Brown announced her engagement to “adopted brother” Nick Gordon to her family as the cameras rolled for her new Lifetime series The Houstons: On Our Own. Umm…ok, we’ll bite. The first trailer for the show has dropped, and Bobbi’s relationship with Nick is featured front and center. The clip starts off with the couple being cringe-ily couple-y, snugging and donning matching outfits as her family diagnose her with a bad case of “Nick-itis.” Emotions are already raw between the relatives as they cope with the recent passing of Bobbi’s mother Whitney Houston as well as her father Bobby Brown’s substance problems. So the Bobbi-Nick shack-up is probably not helping matters much.
“There’s more to life than having a boyfriend,” her aunt Pat insists to her. But Bobbi isn’t having it. “It’s kind of like Charlie Brown, all I hear is ‘wah wah wah.'” the 19-year-old deadpans to the camera. But s–t gets real when she drops the engagement bomb on the Houston clan. Some of the crew don’t seem happy with Bobbi’s decision, and discuss the weirdness of having Nick go from being a godson to being a son-in-law. Bobbi Kristina may not have carried on the musical legacy of her famous parents, but she definitely is carrying on the tradition of giving us amazingly train-wrecky reality shows.
UPDATE: A rep told CNN today that this teaser does not necessarily confirm that Bobbi and Nick are engaged. Uh-huh.
Whoa now! Last we checked in with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, they were cordial ex’s who occasionally went on friendly bike rides together. Now reports are swirling that the ex-couple are now engaged! The Wyoming-area Tayloe Piggot Jewelry claims that JT popped the question to his on-again-off-again-apparently-on-again girlfriend at The Amangani, an upscale resort. “Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night,” the jewelers posted on their Facebook. “We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool.”
New York PR agent Kyle Schaffler is adding fuel to the marriage flames. “I love that no media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement,” he tweeted. “Benefits of working in PR.” However, he says that it all went down at a different hotel, the equally swanky Jackson. But so far no one even remotely close to the pair have publicly commented. Which makes us wonder if the tales of a secret engagement are true, or just one big advertisement for Tayloe Piggot Jewlery and PR dude Kyle Schaffler. We’ll keep you posted.
