And all on a Friday, too. Who sets this shit up, because I want their number.
Jessica Simpson is reportedly saddened by the fact that ex-husband Nick Lachey popped the question to long-term girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo this past weekend. According to Us Weekly, Lachey lavished Minnillo with an Asscher cut diamond ring, which reaffirmed their commitment to one another:
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”
Nick’s official take on things?:
“I popped the question on bended knee. I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong.”
Um, congrats, guys. Vanessa, I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into. Jess … well, just take it easy. Don’t do anything rash like shaving your head or eating an entire honey-glazed ham. You’ll get past this, girl.
The other couple set to race down the aisle? Apparently it’s – wait for it, wait for it – LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. Yup. After their schmoopy-sweet interview that I posted yesterday (and even I have to admit … I was kind of touched in an odd sort of way after watching), E! online has confirmed the status change on their relationship:
Though it didn’t happen on Halloween, the recently divorced actor indeed popped the question recently and the duo are engaged, a source tells E! News.
Well hells bells, y’all. Congratulations to both of you, all of you. Some people say that there’s nothing greater than that old institution of marriage, so let’s hope it all works out and you guys can remain as happy as you apparently are in this moment now.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are in love, y’all. And now they’re appearing on national television – together, talking about their relationship, and not moving more than an inch from one another when they are in the same frame.
Thoughts? Is LeAnn trying to come across as a sympathetic figure, and do you feel differently now after hearing her side of the story – and her history – on camera?

So, remember the recent Shape magazine cover where everyone was like, ‘Oh, damn, check out LeAnn’s revenge body,’ though she didn’t need to do the whole revenge thing, ’cause she was the one who cheated, so she kind of had it backwards?
Well, anyway, the dedicated readers of the magazine (I know, I couldn’t believe it either) wrote to the editor-in-chief, claiming how distasteful it was to find LeAnn plastered all over their blessed magazine and how offended they were that a homewrecker like Rimes would be featured in the magazine – not only as a cover girl, but as the main interview – flaunting both her ass and her excuses.
So because of this, it would appear that the editor-in-chief of Shape took its readers’ concerns seriously and decided to write an email apologizing to all of them, obviously under the assumption that the email would remain private, much like the messages sent through a fucking Little Orphan Annie special decoder (Fort Knox, bitches). The apology? Got it here:

It’s probably something like ‘being the couple with the most veneered Hollywood-white teeth,’ or ‘couple most likely to be involved with your husband. Or wife.’

And no, it’s not because ex-husband Dean Sheremet was actually gay, sorry to quash those rumors … for today.
LeAnn, the female half of the Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes affair — OK, wait, let me reiterate: LeAnn, the blonde half of the Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes affair (ah, much better) reached out recently to Shape magazine about — what else — her affair with a then-married co-star, Eddie Cibrian, and why she did it:
“I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right … I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else.”
As to how she let her vulva get the best of her:
“It wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us [LeAnn and Dean]. As we got older, we grew apart.”
But don’t worry, y’all; she’s learned from this experience, and girlfriend has grown. Live with love and grow from love or whatever the fuck, I guess.
“There are lessons in it for me to learn … The most important thing [is] cultivating strength from rough situations. After going through this, I know I can face anything.”
OK. Is it going to be, like, next year, and we’re still going to be hearing about this affair and exactly how it unfolded time and time again? Is this going to be the catalyst of the prophets’ end of days? 2012 is fast-approaching … and yes, if you’re wondering, I do think Le Ann can continue in this vein for the next year and a half.

Eddie Cibrian is getting away with murder. Lucky him, right? The guy cheats on his wife, Brandi Glanville, and then leaves her for LeAnn Rimes and the press, along with his Brandi, blames her. And over a year later, Brandi is still swiping her claws in LeAnn’s direction, saying that while LeAnn thought that she’d successfully taken Eddie away from her, the formerly married couple were still getting it on on the side.
When Us Weekly recently asked Brandi Glanville, 37, about reports that she hooked up with estranged husband Eddie Cibrian, 37, after he’d already left her for LeAnn Rimes, 28, she coyly replied, “Eddie and I both know the truth.”
A source confirms in the new Us Weekly that the two spouses, who filed for divorce in August 2009, were indeed intimate last fall.
“Leann stole her husband, so Brandi doesn’t owe her,” the source says.
“And Brandi couldn’t care less. She’s already moved on to another relationship.” Indeed, Glanville told Us she’s dating an “amazing man.”
It’s pretty sad to see two beautiful women fight over the same scummy, poorly behaved man. Especially when they’re both fighting for the same thing: His fidelity. Neither of them are going to get that at this point, you know?
Brandi’s hurt feelings are totally understandable. As the mother of Eddie’s children, it must have been heart wrenching to see him in the papers with LeAnn, knowing that they’d started something behind her back. However, Eddie’s the one who gave up his family and his good guy status to get some younger ass on the side. Blaming “the other woman” is just so old and unproductive.
