Congratulations are in order for Lauren Conrad! The former reality star got engaged to law student William Tell over the weekend. Conrad, 27, shared the news on her blog today. “I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend. I am beyond thrilled!” She also posted a picture of her new bling, and it’s gorgeous! I was always Team Conrad during the Laguna Beach days, and it’s been fun to watch her move away from reality TV and into more fashion and design work, and I’ll definitely be interested in seeing what she chooses for her wedding dress!

He’s here! I’m one of the many that loves everything about the Royal Family and have been waiting anxiously for Kate to give birth. The wait is now over, as the baby boy was born at 4:24pm London time. Yes, a boy! So many reports were speculating girl and I was thinking pink all the way. While the baby is still unnamed (and could be for up to days) we did get a few more details on the royal birth. Here is the Twitter announcement from the Palace: “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24pm. The baby weighs 8lbs 6oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & families have been told and are delighted. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight.”
Congrats to Will and Kate, and I’ll be looking forward to seeing the baby and finding out his name!
I’m actually bummed out about this celebrity breakup! People.com is reporting that multi-tasker Ryan Seacrest and dancer turned actress Julianne Hough have decided to throw in the towel on their two year relationship. Dang it! I know you can never place bets on celebrity relationships, but I actually thought the next news we would be hearing from their camps is him putting a ring on it, not the complete opposite. A source “close to the couple” is saying that the reason for the split is simply due to busy work schedules. Well shucks. I’m off to Dairy Queen.

Great news for my one of favorite actresses, Jennifer Aniston – she’s getting married! People.com received confirmation from Justin Theroux’s rep, announcing: “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.” Aniston, 43, and Theroux, 41, an actor-screenwriter, have been dating for over a year, and co-starred in the movie Wanderlust together. Congrats to Jennifer and Justin! Maybe we could exchange wedding planning tips?

I have to say this bit of news surprised me – which I can’t say is typical when it comes to celebrity divorces. It was announced today that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing. People.com broke the news first, and has statements from each lawyer. “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” From Cruise’s camp: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.” The couple married in November 2006 and they have one child together – daughter Suri, 6. Cruise, 49, has been married twice previously, to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he shares two adopted children. This was the first marriage for Holmes, 33.
Anyone else surprised by this news? I know Tom got a lot of flack with jumping on Oprah’s couch announcing his love for Katie, but it seemed like the couple was genuinely in love. Then again, how do we ever know what goes on behind closed doors, especially in the Hollywood.

No! No! No! Well, I’m just devastated. Weekend reports were saying that super couple Heidi Klum and Seal were heading for divorce, but I didn’t want to believe it. Now, I guess I have to. They released this joint statement Monday morning: “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”
Gosh darn it. Klum, 38, and Seal, 48, were married in Mexico in 2005, and held vow renewal ceremonies each year. I loved watching them on Halloween because they always showed up in crazy costumes. When he sang to her on the Victoria Secret fashion show while she strutted in her underwear was beautiful. This was a Hollywood couple that I really held out hope for. What could have gone wrong from them to “grow apart?”
The couple has three biological children – Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. Klum also has seven-year old daughter Leni from a previous relationship, whom Seal adopted in 2009.

Gonna be a football player? Reality star Kristin Cavallari and NFL quarterback Jay Cutler are expecting! The couple, who called off their engagement in July only to reconcile and announce they were back on in November, broke their baby news to PEOPLE: “We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together. It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.” This will be the first child for Cavallari, 25, and Cutler, 28.
I was really hoping all the reports on this one was wrong, but turns out another Hollywood couple is heading for splits-ville. People.com has reported that Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry in Los Angeles on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. He said in this in his statement to PEOPLE, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” Perry, 27, and Brand, 36, were married last year in a lavish, fairy-tale wedding in India, and were often gushing about one another and their union. Recently, both stars had been spotted without their wedding rings, and Perry spent the holiday in Hawaii while Brand was in the UK.
Are you as shocked as I am with this news?
