This post would be about how skinny Carrie Underwood has gotten (too skinny, girl!), if we weren’t so damn distracted by her brand-new engagement ring. Even by Hollywood standards, the thing is huge (Check out a gallery of The Most Fabulous Celebrity Engagement Rings). Surely it’s a burden for her to lift her hand without that thing dragging her to the ground (not that we know from experience).
The rock comes courtesy of her new fiance, hockey player Mike Fisher, who is rumored to have paid a sweet six-figure sum for the twinkling monstrosity. Materialism aside, he seems like a good catch. He’s hunky and – according to one fan’s gushing blog post – a sexy, brooding, charitable, generous, shy prude. In short – every girl’s dream. [Photo: GettyImages]
Now that their engagement is officially confirmed, we wanted to know exactly what happened when Russell Brand proposed to Katy Perry. We already knew the pair was vacationing in India when the question was popped, but People found out that Russell, ever the romantic, planned an elaborate feast for Katy on the night of their engagement.
The couple were staying at the Taj Rambagh Palace hotel in Jaipur, India, and Russell coordinated with the hotel to prepare a night to remember. He and Katy arrived for their meal on a horse and carriage (aww!), ate dinner in a candlelit garden (ooh!), watched midnight fireworks while sitting on an elephant (er, ok), and then Katy found her engagement ring which Russell had hidden in flowers (to make up for the elephant thing). Brand’s rep confirmed that he bought the right before Christmas at Cartier, but would not confirm any wedding details just yet. [Photo: GettyImages]
Keyshia Cole and NBA star Daniel “Boobie” Gibson have confirmed they’re engaged (great news!) and expecting their first child (not news if you’ve seen photos of her lately) . “I can confirm she is engaged and has an incredible ring,” a representative told Us Magazine. The singer—who’s had ten straight R&B top ten hits and starred on three seasons of BET’s Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, has been dating the Cleveland Cavalier since early last year. “When he asked her to marry him [on New Year’s], she was flabbergasted,” said the rep. “He presented her with the ring and her mouth dropped in amazement. It’s too beautiful for words.” The release of Keyshia’s new album has been delayed until the birth of their child—her first—expected in March.

Marilyn Manson has reportedly proposed to girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood only a month after announcing the estranged pair had reunited. According to the Mirror, Manson brought Wood out on stage in Paris Monday, with the Across The Universe actress ecstatically accepting his offer. Between this and Russell Brand‘s text to The Sun, it’s a big week for specious news of engagements from sketchy British tabloids!
Manson and Wood began dating in 2006, when Manson was married to Dita Von Teese and Wood was a mere 19 years old. They broke up two years later, inspiring the shock-rocker to beat and murder a lookalike in his “Running To The Edge Of The World” video. Representatives for the stars have yet to confirm their upcoming betrothal.

The good news: Russell Brand confirmed that he and Katy Perry are engaged. The bad: he apparently did it by texting British tabloid The Sun—so don’t take that grain of salt out just yet. “It’s true. Much love,” Brand reportedly responded to their query about the impending nuptials, otherwise maintaining radio silence.
In what may or may not be a coincidence, the partypoopers at Gossip Cop have changed Perry’s manager’s quote about the marriage rumor yesterday from “not accurate” to “can’t confirm” (though you can still see the original headline in the html). As for the wife-to-be herself, Perry’s Twitter continues to offer nothing but Indian-vacation-related rapture. “Do not let Epcot Center fool you, you have to see for yourself.” You know what else we have to see for ourselves, Katy? The ring!
Here come the Swingers and Wedding Crashers jokes! Vince Vaughn married girlfriend Kyla Weber at a private ceremony in Chicago last Saturday. “They could not be happier,” an insider told People. This is Vaughn and Weber’s first marriage, though the Four Christmases star was previously attached to Joey Lauren Adams and, most notoriously, Jennifer Aniston after her split with Brad Pitt (Vaughn had co-starred with Pitt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith). Vaughn proposed to Weber in February of last year.

Kevin Jonas married Danielle Deleasa in a fairytale wedding. How could it get any better? Apparently the new couple was able to make it even better; they jetted off to the One & Only Palmilla Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for their honeymoon and the newlyweds could not stop gushing about the place!
“The honeymoon was amazing: the place, the people, and the food. All of it was a dream come true,” they said. The couple released a photo to People, showing the glowing duo taking in all Mexico has to offer. When they return from the honeymoon, Kevin and Danielle will reportedly make their home in Texas, but plan to make frequent trips to Danielle’s family in New Jersey. Although they will be settling down in their new home, don’t expect any babies yet! They will focus on a new Maltese Yorkie puppy. In the future, however, the couple plan to expand their family. “Definitely,” Kevin said, when it comes to having kids. But just how many? “Nine,” the singer joked.

Dreadlocked American Idol contestant Jason Castro revealed his marriage to girlfriend Mandy Mayhall on Twitter over the weekend. Castro proposed last Halloween weekend—in costume!—at a Sooners game in Oklahoma. Tweeted the singer, “yesterday I married the girl of my dreams…it couldn’t have been more perfect! Now, honeymoooon!!! :)” Sounds like it could have been a little better healthwise, though, judging from the posts before (“Theraflu and bed. goodnight world, goodbye sickness!”) and after (“Oh gosh this medicine is rockin my stomach…Haha I’m hoping for a smooth flight!”).
Castro, who made it to Idol‘s Final Four in 2008 on the strength of his acoustic ballads before imploding with a hysterical rendition of “I Shot The Sheriff,” will release his debut album in March. Check out the gallery for pics of the couple, as well as one of his proposal (those are Beauty & The Beast costumes, fyi).
Kevin Jonas got married in a fairy tale ceremony earlier this month, and he and his new bride are showing off their wedding photos in People. Their ceremony was truly out of a storybook, with a castle, an enchanted forest, and glass slippers. “I knew my princess needed her glass slippers and her castle,” Kevin said of his new wife, former hairdresser Danielle Deleasa.
Despite the chilly temperatures in Long Island, Danielle says that she certainly did feel royal! “I always wanted my wedding to have that princess feel,” she says, adding, “I couldn’t have imagined this.” After the lavish ceremony, which was officiated by Kevin Jonas, Sr, and Danielle’s childhood pastor, where the couple exchanged traditional vows and swapped Jacob & Co. wedding bands, Kevin and Danielle ditched the blizzard and headed to sunny Mexico to text and sunbathe topless. Congrats! [Source, Photo: People]
Look but don’t touch, ladies! Kevin Jonas may have slipped the purity ring off his finger, but the new wedding ring is undoubtedly just as tight. Fresh off Saturday’s marriage to hairdresser Danielle Deleasa, the eldest JoBro was spotted sunbathing with the missus in Mexico yesterday. Danielle seemed more into her texting than Kev’s tween-worshipped bod, but she’ll see plenty of that in the years to come. Mazel tov!
