Bobby Brown married to his manager Alicia Etheredge yesterday at a ceremony in Hawaii while on tour with his group New Edition. We’re guessing the couple have a soft spot for concerts, considering Bobby proposed to her in the middle of a 2010 Florida gig! “I got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her,” he told People back in 2011. Brown dressed down for the occasion, wearing a fly red tracksuit and white sneakers that matched his new wife’s gorgeous cream-colored gown. They were surrounded by family, including Brown’s children Landon, 23, La’Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr., 19, and 3 year old Cassius, who served as the ring bearer.
But as with most things in the Brown family these days, it wasn’t a totally joyous occasion. Bobbi Kristina, Bobby’s 19-year-old daughter with the late diva Whitney Houston, was not there to see his dad tie the knot. Reportedly there’s a lot of bad blood between the two at the moment, and she opted to remain in NYC to shoot her reality show The Houston Chronicles instead.
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.

Despite denying rumors that she’d gotten engaged over the weekend to beau Jason Trawick, Britney Spears stepped out of a London radio station today wearing a VERY conspicuous rock on her left ring finger. The pop legend was clad in a cowgirl-cutie red plaid shirt, casual jeans and what definitely looks like an engagement ring on her left hand. Brit had an extremely giddy smile on her face as she waved at photographers, because she’s always happy to see the paps AND SHOW OFF WHAT IS CLEARLY AN ENGAGEMENT RING YOU GUYS. But yeah, aside from that it’s NBD. Just another day in Britney-Land. Maybe now she’s going back to her hotel to see her
fiancé boyfriend Jason, who was spotted at an LA jewerly store on Monday. Or maybe she’s gonna go out shopping for a white dress. Or maybe she’s going to write a cutely worded press release announcing her engagement. But then again, what do we know? Check out more pix of the ring in the gallery below and make your own call!

It looks likeÃ‚Â Danny Bonaduce is off the market for good (sorry ladies). The former Partridge Family actorÃ‚Â married his long-time girlfriend Amy Railsback during a trip to Hawaii at the end of November. Surprised? So was he!Ã‚Â ”The wedding planner from the hotel called to speak with Amy and told me I was getting married!” Danny told People magazine. “I said, ‘Honey you got something to tell me?’ Then I thought about it, and said, ‘This is a great idea!”
The two met in 2007, when Amy was just a fan of Danny’s reality TV work. Somehow that qualified her to become his full-time manager, and the two got engaged soon after.Ã‚Â Well, perhaps “engaged” is a little strong. Danny basically said that if she made all of the arrangements and got all of the paperwork together, he’d be down for it. How romantic! And that’s just what Amy did for their Maui vacation. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was going to tell him,Ã¢â‚¬Â she says. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It was an unintentional surprise.Ã¢â‚¬Â They had a beachside ceremony and Danny presented his bride with a sterling silver skull-and-crossbones ring. Double romantic!Ã‚Â ”It’s our insignia,” he explained, “and I have a similar one.” Truly a story book wedding…if the story you’re reading is Treasure Island.
