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!

Tara Reid’s marriage has somehow become so unnecessarily confusing. First, Tara Reid’s engagement only lasts about as long as it takes to read this sentence before she gets married that exact same day. Fine. Then reports claim that Tara Reid’s husband was her recent ex Michael Lilleund, when the groom’s name is actually Zack Kehayov. Okay. An honest mistake, we’re sure. Now we find out that Tara Reid’s wedding might not even have been legit? “We were never really married,” the American Reunion star informed TMZ while exiting a flight at LAX. “No, it was never legal.” Why is there so much information about Tara Reid’s love life, and yet all of it so contradictory? You better get your story straight, Reid, or we’re going to demand those monogrammed tea towels back. You know we don’t know another TR and ZK, but we’ll do it anyway!
Sometimes we wonder why celebrities talk about their breakups at all, especially when their exes are, shall we say, often portrayed as America’s spinster aunt? In an interview with Parade magazine about his upcoming movie Moneyball, Brad Pitt talked about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston. “It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t living an interesting life myself,” Pitt reveals. “I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t.” Somewhere Jen is gripping Justin Theroux‘s hand so tight, she is slowly yet sexily cutting off his circulation.
Just in case the comparison between Jen and Angelina Jolie wasn’t explicit enough yet, Pitt has a little gushing to do. “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m so happy to have her,” Brad explains, before scoffing, “”I mean, how many stories have you read that arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t true, stories about me and Angie being married or fighting or splitting up?” Hmmm, so maybe Brad brought up an actual true story about his failed marriage to Aniston…just to distract us from his current relationship. We see what you did there, Pitt.
And now a lil’ somethin’ for all the ladies…particularly those in middle school. Are you dreaming of settling down someday with your one and only true love, Justin Bieber? Well get a move on, because you’ve only got eight years to lock that dude down! The Biebs has just told Women’s Wear Daily that he hopes to be married by the age of twenty-five. So start saving up for that engagement ring!
When asked what he saw for himself in five years, the seventeen year old singer gave a surprisingly mature answer. “Well, by twenty-five or twenty-six,Ã‚Â I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family,” he told the magazine. “I want to be a young dad.Ã‚Â I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do; to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, Ã‚Â I definitely want to be married by twenty-five.”Ã‚Â Before Biebs gets buried under an avalanche marriage proposals, we should say that this is probably not the best time to bring up the subject. “I’m not looking to get married right now,” he clarified. So there’s no need to lay the smack down on his current girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
But there might be a downside to being the future Mrs. Bieber: you may have to worry about him stealing your clothes! At Dolce & Gabbana’s Fashion Night Out, Bieber told Life & Style magazine about how he gets into women’s pants (no, not like that). “I’ve worn women’s jeans before because they fit me,” he says. “It’s not a trend; it’s just, whatever works, works.” He cites his buddy Kanye West as his style inspiration, and when the rapper recently wore a woman’s sweater, Justin took note. “It wasn’t [so he’d] look like a woman in a sweater; it was just a regular sweater that happened to be a woman’s.”Ã‚Â We’re diggin the confidence, Biebs! Just get ready to be buried under a mountain of jeans from female fans.
