A lot happened on the season finale of "The Bachelor" this week — it actually, really, truly might have been, as host Chris Harrison always promises, the most dramatic episode ever — and then the franchise doubled down with even more craziness on this season's "After the Final Rose" special. On the March 5 finale, Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Becca Kufrin in Peru, then, just weeks later, dumped her while cameras rolled (so cruel!) because he'd realized he actually wanted to be with his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. One night later on March 6, Arie got down on one knee again, this time to propose to Lauren on live television (while Becca was backstage!) during the "After the Final Rose" special. Moments later, it was announced that jilted Becca would star on the next installment of "The Bachelorette."
Eagle-eyed fans are convinced that Emma Watson is secretly dating Chord Overstreet, DailyMail.com reported on March 8.

They were also photographed chatting at the bar inside West Hollywood's Troubadour music venue in February during a concert by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Perhaps time will tell…

Another Duggar is headed down the aisle! Less than two months after revealing they were in a courtship, Josiah Duggar, 21 — the eighth child born to former "19 Kids & Counting" stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar — is engaged to Lauren Swanson, E! News and Us Weekly revealed on March 5. "This is an exciting big step in our lives and the whole thing was very meaningful," Josiah, who appears on the family's newest reality show, "Counting On," said in a statement before confirming his happy news on Instagram.

On March 7, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez separately left a church service they've regularly attended since rekindling their roller-coaster romance last fall, DailyMail.com reported. The move supports a report from E! News earlier in the day that revealed the pop stars are currently taking some time apart, though it stressed that they have not parted ways for good. "They were having a lot of little disagreements recently and one fight in particular blew up and caused them to decide to 'break up,' however, they've been in contact the entire time and their feelings for each other have not changed," a source told E!. "They will absolutely get back together and they are not over, but they both need some time away from each other."
Nearly a year after splitting with boyfriend Simon Saran, "Teen Mom OG" star Farrah Abraham moved on with stuntman Aden Stay, who was romantically linked to Rebel Wilson in 2017. "I'm super-lucky," Farrah told People magazine in a report published on March 1. "When you find someone and you have that connection, I think [that] is so rare. He's pretty amazing — hopefully he will 'stay' around." Farrah posted this date-night selfie with Aden on March 1, captioning the shot, "best date ever this one knows how to order." But just a week later, the romance was dunzo. "I need to watch who I date as many men target me for my success," she told Us Weekly on March 7. "I'm focused on work right now, between TV and film projects. I wish him well but I'm not rushing into relationships. I take my time to do it right for myself and for my daughter. Being the best parent I can be is my priority."
It's finally over! Mary J. Blige was nominated for two Oscars for her work in "Mudbound" at the 2018 Academy Awards on March 4 — best supporting actress and best original song — but she had one extra reason to celebrate on Oscar Sunday. According to a March 5 report from TMZ, the R&B singer and actress reached a settlement with estranged husband and former manager Martin "Kendu" Isaacs on March 2, finally ending their nasty divorce battle that's been raging since she filed court papers to end their 12-year marriage back in July 2016. The exes, TMZ explained, settled just a couple days before they were set to begin a week-long divorce trial. Their split was marred by his demands for spousal support (at one point, he asked for nearly $130,000 a month), her revelation that she owed millions in back taxes and even allegations that he'd cheated on the R&B diva with a young singer who was her protege.
Eight months after ending their two-year romance, Alexa Chung and Alexander Skarsgard appear to be back on.

They walked through the station holding hands," an eyewitness told Us Weekly, which published new photos of the rekindled couple. "This was late in the morning and they arrived on a Eurotrain. They were quiet and just walked through the station alone."
More than five months after "Hot Felon" model Jeremy Meeks filed court papers to end his eight-year marriage to nurse Melissa Meeks (after he made headlines for publicly moving on with Topshop heiress Chloe Green), the estranged couple have hammered out a divorce deal. TMZ reported on March 6 that Jeremy must pay Melissa $1,000 a month in child support. The exes also agreed on joint legal custody of their son, 9-year-old Jeremy Jr., who will live with his mom 70 percent of the time and with his dad 30 percent of the time.

"Arielle and I are so happy to announce our marriage and new baby, who is soon to join our growing family," he wrote alongside a photo from their wedding day (he wore a kilt!), adding, "Close friends and family came together with my Grey's family to share in our celebration day — an intimate, low key gathering culminating in a Scottish Ceilidh dance.

Bradley Whitford and Amy Landecker are engaged!

Bradley's rep later confirmed the engagement news to People magazine. Amy has reportedly been sporting a diamond ring since January.

Amy reportedly split from husband Jackson Lynch, a journalist, in 2011 and dated comedy star Larry David before romancing Bradley.
Red carpet official at last! Though she's been in a relationship with The War on Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel since 2014, Krysten Ritter has never hit a red carpet with her love.

"Yes it's true, my marriage has come to an end," she shared. "I know that beauty will come from these ashes and, as always, I want to thank you all for your love and support. I'll be in touch soon." The next day, J.P. posted a message on Instagram seemingly about the split. "All good. Half full kind of mentality," he captioned an image featuring Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" lyrics: "Don't worry about a thing. 'Cause every little thing is gonna be all right."
Josh Lucas and Uma Thurman are playing husband and wife on Broadway in "The Parisian Woman" at the Hudson Theater. But according to a March 1 report from the New York Post's Page Six, the pair might also have an intimate relationship off-stage. "They were in front of Jimmy's Corner Wednesday night [Feb. 28]… Uma Thurman was talking to Josh Lucas," a source told Page Six. "They proceeded to scoot into the doorway of Jimmy's and made out." The story notes that both stars denied a romance. "I would be so honored, but, alas, we just play husband and wife in 'The Parisian Woman,' and he's the best fake husband ever," Uma told the Post through her rep. Josh also tried to pour cold water on it, telling the paper, "I would be so honored! She is the best stage wife ever, and I hope people think our stage chemistry is so good we must be…"
Reality TV celebrity Courtney Stodden and "The Green Mile" actor Doug Hutchison made headlines when they got married in 2011 when she was 16 and he was 50. Now they're making headlines again following a tumultuous few years: She filed for divorce on March 6, a little more than a year after announcing they'd split, TMZ reported, though they've tried to make it work on and off since then. TMZ later revealed that Courtney listed Sept. 1, 2017, as the date of separation. She claims in court papers that she and Doug each earn $2,500 a month and she is not asking for spousal support, which leads TMZ to believe there is a prenup in place.
It might be over for Adriana Lima and Metin Hara. Page Six speculates that nearly nine months after the model hooked up with the Turkish New Age guru, there are signs they've parted ways. Adriana partied solo on Oscar night and, Page Six points out, "spent much of February in Rio de Janeiro for Carnival. On Valentine's Day, she posted an ode to the strength of women on Instagram."

Plus Metin posted an old photo of Adriana in February with a cryptic message: "She was the poem I always wanted to write… #lovewins," it read.
