The always adorable Julie Benz just got engaged to her boyfriend of four years, Rich Orosco, this past Sunday. She called the proposal “absolutely perfect,” and her surprise engagement party sounds even better:
“The proposal was simple and beautiful – and then I was shocked by the pop-up surprise Mexican fiesta engagement party,” she says, adding, “What girl doesn’t want to be serenaded by a Mariachi band surrounded by close friends and family?”
Now, you might be thinking to yourself “who even is Julie Benz and why should I care about her happiness?” And the answer is that you should care because you should care about your fellow human beings, goddamnit, and also because she’s been in almost all of my favorite shows. She played the adorable Rita on Dexter, she was badass Darla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and she even had a guest spot on Supernatural. So it’s almost like, you know, how could you NOT care about her happiness?
