Well, this is going to make the engagement party awkward…not to mention the bi-monthly family screening of The Social Network! Just days after Miley Cyrus announced her engagement to boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, brother Trace Cyrus reveals that he and actress Brenda Song are calling it quits. “Brenda and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Trace said in a statement. “We split up a couple of months ago. We will continue to focus on our careers.” Hmm…could it be that only one Cyrus can be engaged at one time in order to maintain order in the universe? Has anyone seen Cabin In The Woods? No spoilers, but….really makes you think, doesn’t it?
Song and Cyrus have been engaged since last October, a fact made even more tragic by our realization that Song & Cyrus would make an amazing band name. Meanwhile, we’re wondering what happened to those Trace/Brenda pregnancy rumors that were swirling around last summer? “I wish Brenda the best and much success in the future,” Trace concludes. “I hope everyone can respect our privacy about this situation.” Oh, don’t worry, Trace. As soon as the paps catch Miley trying on veils, no one’s going to remember your heartbreaking romance even existed.

Miley Cyrus busted out her 3.5 carat rock at LAX today as she headed to Louisiana to visit fiance Liam Hemsworth on the set of his upcoming film Empire State, and the astronauts on the International Space Station gasped with envy. Honestly, we would not have been surprised if her ring was actually as big as the picture on the right. But when what would Miley do with it? Wear it as a tiara? Why hasn’t a single celebrity thought of that yet?
But enough about our jewelry-related fantasies! The reality is impressive enough. According to People, Miley Cyrus’ engagement called for a “cushion-cut diamond ring, handcrafted in 18-karat gold with intricately carved diamond floral motifs in an art nouveau pattern.” On, and then there’s that massive stone. “It was hand-cut around 1880 or 1890 and it’s unique and in its original form,” designer Neil Lane said of the ring. “At that time no two diamonds were alike, as they were all hand-cut, so it’s fascinating to look at because it hasn’t been re-cut to look contemporary over the years. I find that really romantic.” Add Lane, “It’s also so big, Miley’s finger might break clean off.” Okay, so he didn’t say that. He didn’t need to! Your eyes tell you everything you need to know!

After three years of dating, and three years of rumors of splits and engagements, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged, Miley’s rep confirmed to People today. “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” she told the magazine. He proposed last Thursday, May 31, with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane.
The 19-year-old actress/singer and her 22-year-old Hunger Games beau began dating in 2009 while filming The Last Song. They announced their breakup in August 2010, but were photographed making out in a car just a month later. Earlier this spring, after Miley was spotted wearing a rock on her left ring-finger, Liam’s older brother, Chris Hemsworth said he thought the pair were too young to get married. And we kind of agreed at the time. But perhaps the experience of caring for their growing pack of dogs together has made them decide to settle down?
Whatever the reason, we’re extending a wholehearted congrats to Liam and Miley, and consider this gallery of them being super-couple-y our engagement present to them.

We’ve been dying to see that custom ring Brad Pitt gave Angelina Jolie. Actually hold up, we still have got all the squee out of us regarding Brad and Angie’s engagement! The news broke last week and it was reported that Robert Procop made the ring and it was “designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.” The description that was given was this: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
Now while that’s great, we actually wanted to see the ring on Angie’s finger properly, and we’ve finally got our wish. We did get a side view of it from The Hollywood Reporter, but what can we say … this is the sort of full-frontal that’s actually welcome. Angelina was spotted coming out of the side entrance of The Roosevelt Hotel in New York yesterday, and she looked like royalty. Impeccable hair and makeup, demure figure-hugging grey dress, nude platform peep toes — hello, Angelina. Plus, the added bonus was that she was smiling from ear-to-ear and showed off the ring to the photographers, which you can see in all its glory in the picture on the right. Comments? Thoughts?

If we were engaged to Olivier Martinez, we would rent a plane and sky-write it over Manhattan…which is probably why we’re not engaged to Olivier Martinez. Halle Berry, however, kept silent about her alleged engagement to the French actor for three months after rumors about their betrothal hit the Interweb. Until this weekend, that is. “Who knew?” Berry laughed while talking with Extra on the Jenesse Center Silver Rose Gala red carpet this past Saturday. “I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!” Halle did apparently vow never to marry again in an interview with InStyle back in 2007, two years after her divorce from singer Eric Benet and ten after splitting with former Yankee David Justice. Who could have guessed Halle Berry would meet a devastatingly handsome Frenchman and fall in love after that? Okay, we could have guessed, but our point is no one could have known for sure.
Halle might have remained mum as to her relationship status, but that doesn’t mean Olivier did. “Yes, of course it’s true,” he said about engagement rumors while promoting his new Miami restaurant Villa Azur in early March. No word on when the happy couple is getting hitched. Whatever the date, rest assured that it will be three or four months before we ever find out about it.

Ladies, stop your hysterical sobbing! Stop ripping down your Marilyn Manson posters and setting fire to your Antichrist Superstar t-shirt! Despite what your Google Alert for “Marilyn Manson engaged” might have found this morning, the shock rocker is still blissfully unattached. Life & Style first reported that Manson and heavily eye-linered actress/filmmaker Seraphim Ward were to be joined in unholy matrimony after only five weeks of dating. However, according to Manson’s publicist, “Marilyn Manson is not engaged to Seraphim Ward. He has never met her.” See, so there is still a chance for you two to end up together! Now let’s just calm down, and redraw those pentagrams on your bedroom wall where they belong.
As it turns out, Ward is actually betrothed…to Marilyn’s ex-bandmate Pogo, or as he was known while serving as Manson’s keyboardist, Madonna Wayne Gacy. “I am NOT engaged to Marilyn Manson, I look up to him and his work! I am with an x-bandmate, but it is NOT Manson!,” Ward wrote on Twitter this afternoon after a tweeted photo of her engagement ring ended up plastered across several media sites. “I am beyond words still. I admire Marilyn Mansion so much, but never have even dated him. I thought I was with someone that was my life partner, Pogo…until today…not cool and someone needs to move out asap!” You tell ‘em, girl! Never settle for second best! And by second best, we mean anyone who isn’t Marilyn Manson, which you probably could have guessed from the context!

We’ll say that one more time: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt</strong> are engaged. A rep for jeweler Robert Procop confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter today that a ring Angie was sporting at an event on Wednesday is in fact an engagement ring, “designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.”
You are probably having two reactions to this news: 1) Let us see the ring! And 2) Weren’t they engaged already?
We’re working on #1, but for now you can see it over on THR, along with this description: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
And yeah, as for #2, we do kind of wonder about those couples that claim not to be officially engaged even though they talk about getting married as an inevitable fact. But since we are now ecstatically imagining what this wedding will look like (and OMG the guest list!), we will forgive Brangelina. Every time we used to wish they’d get married already (you’d think the six kids were a good enough sign they’re ready for commitment), we started to feel like our grandparents.
Miley Cyrus has already struck out at the press for daring to suspect that the ring she wears on her left ring finger is a sign that she and Hunger Games bf Liam Hemsworth are engaged. But the folks at E! were brave enough to slip a question about those two crazy kids into their interview with Chris Hemsworth at the L.A. premiere of The Avengers last night.
“They’re, like, 21 or something,” he said. Um, wait. We know Chris is busy these days, what with reprising his role as Thor and starring in Snow White and the Huntsman and expecting a new baby with wife Elsa Pataky, but does he really not know how old his brother is? For the record, bro, Liam turned 22 in January (you know, at that penis cake party… where Demi Moore was chugging Red Bull in the corner), and Miley is 19. Anyway, their age, whatever it may be, is why he “can’t see that happening.”
The gossip gods giveth and the gossip gods taketh away. Just as we announced that Maroon 5 heartthrob Adam Levine is single, we discovered that another Hollywood hunk is now off the market. We’re talking, of course, about Alec Baldwin. Sorry, ladies!
The 30 Rock star popped the question on Saturday to his girlfriend, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, while the two were visiting Long Island. “Yes, it’s true! Alec proposed to Hilaria this weekend and we’re all excited for the newly engaged couple,” Alec’s rep told People this afternoon. “Alec’s birthday is tomorrow. Great way to celebrate!” Definitely! We can’t think of a better way to turn 54 than to get engaged to a 28-year-old. Baldwin will never age.
The duo met a dinner in early 2011, and became public that September. Since then, they’ve pushed social media to gooey new heights with mushy tweets proclaiming their love. “All of a sudden I found myself where I was available to have something more real in my life,” Baldwin said in an interview with the Daily Beast last fall. “And now I’m going to move in with her. It’s the most serious thing, I guess, I’ve had in a long, long time.” Awww! It looks like Hilaria is just the calming force the notoriously short-tempered Alec needs. Congrats, you two! We’ll celebrate with a bowl of Schweddy Balls!

That’s a mighty big rock Miley Cyrus has on her ring finger. What gives? Rumors of an engagement to boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, have been swirling all weekend, sparked by a tweet Miley sent a couple of days ago. “I am soooo obsessed with
@jennahipp nail foundations! It looks so chic and classic!” it read, along with a photograph of her left hand with a big ol’ diamond on it, which you can see below.
Then Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XVVIII’s came along in Phoenix Saturday night, and Miley showed up in that gorgeous peach-coral Jenny Packham gown which you can see above the twitpic. Her choice of accessory? The big diamond ring (photograph on the right) again. While the couple’s reps aren’t saying a word to anyone, a source told People that the two are not engaged. But if that’s the case, then we’d like to hear an official statement that clearly denies that. What do you think, folks Is it just an accessory, or does the ring signify something more serious? Miley’s got to have known that people would have started talking after she tweeted that close-up of her hand! Is this her way of telling us something?
