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?

If your eyebrows were already raised over the alleged relationship between Bobbi Kristina Brown and her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon before, get ready for those bad boys to rocket to the top of your forehead in about two seconds now: according to Us Weekly, Whitney Houston‘s daughter and the child the singer raised from the age of 12 are allegedly engaged. While Bobbi and Nick were spotted smooching in public last week, the magazine now has a photo of the pop star’s daughter sporting a massive rock on her ring finger, a piece of jewelry that reportedly belonged to Houston. According to the magazine’s source, the two “are living like a couple” currently. We don’t know about you, but we have have a lot of feelings about this. Like, too many feelings to process. Most of them tinged with confusion.
“Bobbi Kristina is still so vulnerable since her mother passed away,” their source continues “But Nick has become like her rock.” As we’ve explained before, Gordon is not related to Bobbi Kristina or Whitney genetically or legally. That being said, we don’t think it’d be a great idea for Bobbi Kristina to be marrying anybody so recently after her mother’s death on February 11. Forget the whole “practically family” aspect: we don’t think matrimony would be a good idea for Bobbi, period! Or maybe we’re just being overly cautious? We are glad Bobbi has someone to lean on during a dark time. Oh the other hand…yuck. What do you think? Go ahead and leave us a comment; we have to go lie down in a dark room for a few hours to process this.

Olivier Martinez has confirmed the news that all of us kinda knew anyway. He is officially engaged to one of the most gorgeous women on the planet — Halle Berry. “Yes, of course it’s true,” is what the French actor told the press while promoting his new restaurant, Villa Azur, on South Beach in Miami. Congratulations, you impossibly attractive couple!
Right about the time the rumors about them making it legal started swirling, a spokesperson from Gurhan jewelry started taking credit for the diamond and emerald engagement ring Olivier supposedly gave Halle. But the actor’s having none of that. He’s really cleaning house with the gossip, revealing, “There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring, and it’s a lie! They have nothing to do with this.” Right, Gurhan. Now what do you have to say about that? Olivier also said that the ring was actually made by Robert Mazlo, a Parisian jeweler from Saint-Germain-des-Pres, who Martinez says is “a real artist.” Now all we need are the wedding deets and we’ll be happy campers!

Based on how much Deena Cortese cries during your average season of Jersey Shore, how much do you think she cried when she found out about Snooki’s pregnancy from the news rather than from her meatball sister herself? A million tears? That seems like a solid, conservative estimate. “I actually just found out when everybody else did. That’s when she decided to tell everyone,” Deena explained on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show this morning. “I think she was waiting because it’s bad luck.” Her costar Vinny Guadagnino seemed similarly stunned by the news, as he told HuffPo today, “It was definitely a shock, but you have to adapt to whatever life throws at you.” We’re assuming at least Snooki’s boyfriend Jionni knew before the Interweb did…right?
Despite their shock and awe at Snooki’s recent life decisions, her cast members think she’s going to be an excellent parent, boozing and Shore Showers not withstanding. “I think Nicole is going to be a great mom,” gushed Deena. “She’s a very genuine person and her heart’s always in the right place. She always puts people before her.” Said Vinny, “We all get into our hardships with each other and petty arguments but this is real life. She is pregnant and we are there for each other … I think it is a cool thing.” Aw, you guys are the best! As far as we’re concerned, the producers should just make room for a crib next to the duck phone next season.

So, some other news outlets forked out a bunch of cash to get pics of Jessica Biel’s giant, vintage-looking, square-cut rock that she finally wore out to lunch after leaving at home for months. (Was she getting it repaired or something?) We’ll let you take a second to go peep it. OK, now that was not nearly enough goofing off for a lazy winter Friday, so we cooked up another time sucker for you, one we’re calling Guess the Celeb Rock! Now quick, don’t peek at the thumbnails below before you click on the first pic and guess the famous fiancee that ring finger belongs to. The weekend is almost here. Weeeeeee!
Snooki must have heard our eyes rolling back in our heads earlier today at her most recent engagement rumors, because the girl went ahead and busted out the ring. Bam! While walking her dog with JWoww in Jersey City, the Jersey Shore star took the opportunity to reveal a very official looking rock. Despite the evidence, Shnooks still hasn’t confirmed her betrothal to boyfriend Jionni LaValle quite yet, a move we think is sort of odd. You’d think she’d be literally peeing her pants with excitement, not gently brushing the hair off her face for the paparazzi. When has this woman ever held back anything? We were not joking about the “peeing her pants” thing!
Speaking of playing it coy (a sentence we never thought we’d type in conjuncture with the name “Snooki”), the reality star might think she’s leaving the world hanging about her possible pregnancy, but she flat out denied being with child to Janell Snowden‘s face at the Grammy’s last month. “I definitely want kids in the future,” Shnooks claimed. “But I’m not pregnant right now.” Hmm, if only there was such an easy way to confirm Snooki’s pregnancy rumors as slipping on a piece of jewelry. Maybe she could get a t-shirt screen-printed with the sonogram? It would be more convenient for us, that’s for sure. Plus you know we would buy one…

Forgive us if we take this latest Snooki news (and my god, the headlines are relentless these days) with a grain of salt: People reports that “a source” has confirmed that Snooki and boyfriend Jionni LaValle are not only expecting their first child, but also getting married. If so, then congrats, of course.
In our heads, we’ve concocted an alternate view of this rumor: Jionni and Snooks concocted it themselves, just to get their families off their backs about having a baby out of wedlock. That’s how we’d do it, anyway. And then take our time about making the actual decision to get hitched or not. Call us cynical and/or romantic. The couple did break up for a time last year, so it’s not the best idea to rush into this. (Best ideas are what Snooki is really good at.) Read more…
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa have been batting away engagement rumors from the first time they groped each other’s butts on the red carpet until today. Now that the rapper and his lady friend are ready to lock it down for realsies though, they wanted the whole world to know about their love. And about the enormous rock Wiz gave his bride-to-be. “She Said Yes!!!” Khalifa tweeted this afternoon, along with a photo of Amber’s fabulous manicured (and extremely heavy) hand. Seeing as both both Amber and Wiz have tattoos of each other’s names, a ring just seems like a formality. A beautiful, beautiful formality.
So let us get this straight: Lil Wayne tweets “she said yes!” on Valentine’s Day, then has the cojones tan grandes to come back the next day and tell us we’re out of minds for assuming he got engaged to girlfriend Dhea? As one wise woman once said, something in the milk ain’t clean. “Ohhhhhhh now I see why! I meant “she said yes” to being my valentine!!! Hahahahahahaha! Y’all crazy!,” Lil Wayne tweeted this afternoon after fans started sending him congratulations. Sometimes we wonder if we’re crazy, Weezy. Now is not one of those times.
Making the whole story even odder, TMZ claims that Lil Wayne and his lady friend were spotted out at Miami restaurant Barton G last night, where the rapper asked that a yellow diamond ring be hidden in his date’s sundae. Moments later, Wayne proclaimed out loud to the restaurant, “She said yes!,” which seems like something someone might do when they get engaged. So either Weezy intentionally gave his girlfriend a very public faux proposal for Valentine’s Day…or someone is about to get a dozen roses and a heart-shaped vase hurled through his patio window. Either way, we hope Weezy keeps tweeting the (constantly changing) deets!

Over the weekend, Selena Gomez posted an Instagram photo of a hand wearing what looks like a diamond-studded “J” ring and being held by another hand — obvs we think it’s Justin Bieber holding her hand and the sparkly thing he bought her for Valentine’s Day. Her caption says, “I’m finally home : )”
And of course, people instantly wanted to know if the ring is some kind of promise ring, or … an engagement ring? Relax, people. It’s a difficult angle to tell for sure, but the ring is either on her right hand or on the middle finger of her left hand. And also, it’s a freaking J. We know they’re young, but we really don’t think they’d get engaged with an initial like that. But! It is a sweet gift for V-Day, and also we assume she means “home” literally, not in that mushy “Justin Bieber is my home” way, because she played her last tour date on Saturday. Now, she wrote in Facebook, she’s going to be taking a break from performing with her band the Scene and instead concentrate on her acting.
And in case you didn’t get enough celebrity romance yesterday, here, again, is a gallery of adorable famous couples being adorable.
