Britney Spears Wants to Marry Jason

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating, Weddings, Child Stars, Rumors,

Britney Spears and Jason TrawickBritney Spears is reportedly desperate to marry boyfriend Jason Trawick.

The "Hold It Against Me" singer - who has been married twice before - has told friends she wants her partner of two years to propose by the end of the year as she wants a normal family life for her and her two sons, Sean Preston, five, and four-year-old Jayden James.

"After all her ups and downs Brit is craving stability - hence her broodiness at the moment - and she just wants to settle down with Jason and do it all again the right way," a source said.

Britney -- who split from husband Kevin Federline in 2006 after two years of marriage, while her union with childhood friend Jason Alexander was annulled in January 2004 -- recently spoke about agent Jason, saying how she loves how normal and grounded their life is together.

"We're really normal. We just like to watch movies. We work out a lot. We love to work out. We do stuff together like that. We take walks."

Prince William, Kate Middleton engagement pictureThe royal wedding will be filled with traditional elements, but there's at least one the new couple won't be observing. Even after he ties the knot with Kate Middleton, Prince William won’t be wearing a wedding ring. According to a rep, “It is the couple’s wishes to have one ring. It will be a Welsh gold ring that will be from Prince William to Kate.” A gold Welsh ring sounds like an appropriate token of affection to the future Princess of Wales.

The nugget of gold has been in the family vault, given to William by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

Kate Middleton

While future husband Prince William was celebrating his “stag party,” almost-a-princess Kate Middleton was enjoying a relaxed “hen night” hosted by her Maid of Honor and sister Pippa.

Everyone’s been pretty mum on the details, but we’re told Middleton enjoyed a quiet celebration that’s so secretive, we can’t even get a good handle on the guest list. It’s suspected that Princess Beatrice, friend Alicia Fox-Pitt and Rose Astor were among the attendees.

Pippa managed to trick the media by booking four different locales to host the event, and no one’s revealing just where the bash went down. To get all the details we do have on the royal wedding, check out all our posts on the big event.

Royal Wedding: Get Inside the Princely Bachelor Party

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Engagements, Weddings, Child Stars, Rumors,

Prince William, Prince HarrySo, how do you entertain a guy who will one day rule an entire country? We’ll never know. Prince William’s bachelor party, hosted by Best Man and younger brother Prince Harry, remains a rather hush-hush affair.

An official spokesman had little enough to share, saying only that the King-to-be “has enjoyed his stag [party] and it was in the U.K.” British people call bachelor parties stag parties, by the way.

We’ll have to rely on rumor to learn more. Reports say that the Prince and about 20 close friends enjoyed a weekend affair that included water activities (waterskiing, motorboat-racing), a night out at the pubs (bars, to you Americans) and then they winded down at a lavish country manor.

Not a bad way to say good-bye to being single. We're following all the details of the royal wedding, so keep checking back to stay up-to-date on all the official events and unofficial gossip.

Kat Von D and Jesse James

Last January, Sandra Bullock publicly praised husband Jesse James for having her back. Now, almost exactly a year later, Bullock's ex-husband is publicly praising the woman who "stood behind" him.

In a statement issued to People magazine, the “most hated man in the world" gushed about tattoo artist Kat Von D, his new fiancee.

"You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs. I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!

Holly Madison Calls Hugh Hefner Engagement a Mistake

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Engagements, Rivalries,

Hugh Hefner and Crystal HarrisHugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Holly Madison thinks he is making a mistake by marrying Crystal Harris.

The 84-year-old Playboy founder proposed to the 24-year-old Playmate on Christmas Eve but glamour model and reality TV star Madison - who split from Hugh in 2008 because he did not want to get married - thinks he will regret his "hasty decision."

"I'd like to see Hef settle down. I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he's making a hasty decision. I'm not sure Crystal is the best thing for him. Crystal hasn't been around very long -- she's a mysterious character. No one knows much about her. Plus, she's very young, probably too young to settle down."

Holly, 31, also revealed she is worried aspiring singer Crystal is using Hugh to start her career and fears he could end up losing everything in an expensive divorce: "I've seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don't think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it's possible Crystal could break Hef's heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money. I'm not jealous that he'd marry someone else. I just don't want it to be a girl who's using him to start her career. Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal."

“They are extremely happy,” her spokesperson stated.

Reese and her 40-year-old first started seeing each other back in January, shortly after Witherspoon’s on-and-off relationship with Gyllenhaal ended for good.

The Oscar winner’s divorce from actor Ryan Phillippe was finalized in 2008. She has two children – Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7 – from that seven-year marriage.

Kate Middleton Considering Westminster for Royal Wedding

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Engagements, Weddings, Rumors,

Princess-to-be was recently spotted, with a contingent of aides, coming out of London’s famed Westminster Abbey.

The centuries-old, historic building would look great in wedding photographs, hmm?

Middleton was seen late Wednesday afternoon leaving the historic site. Aides say that the engaged couple is considering a number of different venues for the nuptials, including the historic Abbey, but they haven’t made any firm decisions yet.

For almost one thousand years, Westminster Abbey has witnessed the coronations of most of the British monarchs. The famed church was also the site of Princess Diana’s memorial service. (Prince Charles and Princess Diana held their 1981 wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral.)

Speculation is that Middleton will wed Prince Harry this March, but Palace officials say the couple may wait until summer to hold the ceremony.
