Engagement Details

Orlando Bloom's proposal to Katy Perry: All the details

After Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom got engaged on Valentine's Day, they only used three words between them to announce the news. "Full bloom," Katy wrote alongside a photo of the couple that showed off her flower-shaped engagement ring. Sharing the same photo, Orlando wrote, "Lifetimes."

It turns out much more detail went into planning the proposal. According to E! News, Katy counts Valentine's Day as one of her favorite holidays. With the pressure on, Orlando arranged for a full evening of celebratory surprises, the website reports.

"The proposal was a complete surprise," said one source. "They have discussed getting engaged but Katy did not think it was going to happen so soon. Orlando proposed to Katy in private just the two of them after their Valentine's Day dinner celebration."

Once she said "yes," Orlando took Katy to a surprise party in a private, downtown Los Angeles penthouse, where about 30 of the singer's closest pals were waiting to toast the two.

E! reports Katy's friends were asked to ensure the news remained under wraps as they waited for the pair while surrounded by red roses and wearing red sweatshirts the host had given out to guests that said "OK" on them.

"Everyone in the room cheered for them as they walked in and they had a champagne toast," said the source, who added that the singer's parents were there and looked "very excited and happy for" Katy and Orlando. "There were tears of happiness from Katy and she had a huge smile on her face the entire night."

Back in January 2016, Katy and Orlando sparked romance rumors after getting flirty at a Golden Globes after party. Since then, they've taken time off from their relationship but were clearly back together again by 2018.

Though they've tried to keep their relationship private, both parties have gushed about each other and even hinted that a future marriage could be a possibility.

"I'm very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things," Katy recently said in an interview with Paper Magazine. "I mean, I was married when I was 25. I'm 34. It was almost 10 years ago. I was like, 'One person for the rest of my life,' and I'm not so sure that that idea is for me. I'm just such a different person than I was."

That may mean continuing to revamp her perspective on marriage.

"Katy is over the moon and so excited," said E!'s source "She has always said that Orlando's love for her was different than anything she has felt before."

Still engaged??

Fans are questioning if Taraji P. Henson is still engaged

Is Taraji P. Henson still an engaged woman? That's what fans are beginning to wonder.

The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden in 2018, three years after the duo began dating. In early 2020, they appeared to be the epitome of happiness and were months away from getting hitched. However, he has not been seen on Taraji's Instagram in months.

Adding fuel to the rumors, Taraji celebrated her 50th birthday last week in Mexico and Kelvin didn't appear to attend. He also made no mention of Taraji on his social media.

"Bliss," Taraji captioned a photo from her birthday festivities in which she wasn't wearing her engagement ring, but rather a different bauble.

The last time Taraji appeared on Kelvin's Instagram was on Valentine's Day. Kelvin, meanwhile, last appeared on Taraji's Instagram in March, and that last time she flashed her engagement ring was in April.

To be fair, the duo has been somewhat private about their romance, having quietly dated for two years before going public. In 2019 she revealed that the duo actually split at one point and Kelvin had to claw his way back into her life.

Coincidentally, Taraji and Kelvin should, in fact, be married by now. The two were set to tied the  knot this summer, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials.

"Our grandparents, my grandmother is about to turn 96, his is 86, how do we get them to the wedding now? Now, we are concerned, just trying to figure out the safest and best way," she told Access Hollywood in March.

Insta fury

Lisa Rinna blasted over 'move on' comment on Instagram

9021- oh, the drama!

Lisa Rinna is feeling the heat from Instagram after telling her followers to "move on," which many felt was a reference to her ongoing feud with Denise Richards

After the reality TV show's reunion was aired, Lisa took to Instagram. "The future looks bright. Better not Bitter. Love you all!," she wrote. "Thank you for watching and let's for gods sakes Move on!!!"

Fans immediately pounced, claiming she was the reason for the never-ending storyline involving allegations that Denise Richards had an affair with former "Housewives" star Brandi Glanville, all of which Denise has denied.

"'Move on'…?," one person commented. "Hunny weren't you were the one bullying Denise all season? Lol. But ok."

Another said, "Now you want to move on after you dragged Denise??? You couldn't let it go for an entire season!! You should send her flowers for giving you a storyline."

"You say 'move on' but you're still being petty and dragging it out in your stories right now," yet another said. 

A cavalry of similar comments lit up the comments section of Lisa's Instagram post.

On Sept. 17, Lisa posted modeling photos of her daughter Amelia Gray. Some of her fans saw it as nothing more than an attempt at a distraction. 

Last week, a slew of "Housewives" fans even called for Lisa to be fired from the Bravo show, and many argued that she's to blame for Denise's decision to leave.

"Gutted @DENISE_RICHARDS is leaving #RHOBH – blame it on @lisarinna," one person tweeted, leading to a chorus of others who agreed.

Perhaps as a nod to the backlash, on Sept. 17 Lisa posted a quote to her Instagram Story that read: "Let your past make you better, not bitter."

Fake news

"There is no other child. No baby is on the way. That rumor is super false," a source told Page Six on Sept. 17. "Cardi is thinking of her child and wants everything to be amicable. She's evolved over the years and continues to."

On Sept. 15, the "WAP" rapper filed for divorce from there Migos rapper after nearly three years of marriage.

Initial reports implied that the split was contentious, but on Sept. 16, Cardi amended her filing to indicate she wants a peaceful split, especially for the sake of their 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. 

"She went back to have the petition amended because she wasn't aware that it read 'primary custody.' She wants them both to have custody and to co-parent," the source said. "She's not requesting spousal support or child support. She wants everything to be super amicable."

The divorce filing came just days after Cardi shared a cryptic message on her Instagram Story that stated, "Her heart finally told her to stop wasting her time." She added, "It's time." The filing also came just days shy of what would have been the couple's third anniversary.

The couple's relationship has been unconventional. Offset proposed on stage during a concert after he and Cardi were already secretly married. Soon after, Offset was hit with cheating allegations and the duo briefly split in 2018. Then, in December 2018, he surprised Cardi on stage at the Rolling Loud Festival, essentially crashing her performance with flowers in hand and begging for her forgiveness with a cake that read "TAKE ME BACK CARDI." 

They would eventually reconcile.

In the divorce paperwork, Cardi revealed that the two are now separated and firmly states that there is no chance of a reconciliation. Offset has yet to respond to Cardi's divorce filing.

Kathy Hilton's future could be in reality. 

According to TMZ, Kathy is in talks with Bravo about becoming a regular face on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." The website is quick to point out that Kathy would not be brought in as a full time member, but rather as someone who would be a "friend of the show."

No decision has been made yet, but Kathy is said to be mulling the offer and is "definitely interested."

Kathy is no stranger to the show, as she is the sister of Kyle Richards and former "Housewives" star Kim Richards. Kathy has also appeared on the show several times over the years.

Ex issue

'Iron Chef' star Cat Cora says ex is trying to 'destroy' her

Famed chef Cat Cora is seeking a restraining order against her ex-wife, claiming she wants to "destroy my life at any cost."

The "Iron Chef" star's divorce from Jennifer Cora was finalized in 2016, officially ending their 17-year relationship — during which they were married for only two years. Cat tells Page Six that since they split, Jennifer has made her life "a nightmare that I can't wake up from."

"It's cyber-stalking, mental and emotional distress and abuse," she claims.

Cat and Jennifer share four sons — Zoran, 16, Caje, 13, Thatcher, 11, and Nash, 11 — but the "My Kitchen Rules" star says her ex is "such an uncooperative co-parent." 

"For instance she's taken me to court fifteen times in four years and has basically bankrupted me by having to defend myself," Cat alleges.

She also alleges that Jennifer is nasty with Nicole Ehrlich, whom the chef married in 2018. 

Like Cat, Nicole is also seeking a restraining order against Jennifer.

"[Jennifer's] power and happiness come from making Cat miserable," Nicole claims, according to Page Six.

In Cat's court filing, she details other alleged incidents painting Jennifer's behavior as confrontational or harassing.

"She has never cared if I needed to be with my mom, or the kids or anything," Cat claims in her petition for a restraining order. "Her whole goal in life is for me to fail, be destroyed, not have a relationship with the kids, for everyone to know I am a BAD person. … She is desperately trying to make me seem like a bad person, bad mother, anything to hurt me."

Cat argues that police have even encouraged her to seek protection from her ex.

25 years down...

Al Roker and ABC's Deborah Roberts celebrate 25th anniversary

It's been a quarter century since Al Roker tied the knot, but Deborah Roberts is still the wind beneath his wings.

On Sept. 16, the affable weatherman posted a sweet video from their 1995 nuptials while Bette Midler's hit song "Wind Beneath My Wings" played in the background.

"A #happy25thanniversary to @debrobertsabc who helps me a better #father #brother #person and challenges me to do better each and every day. #thankyou and #iloveyou," he captioned the video. 

The "Today" show star later added a clip from "The Flintstones" in which Fred Flintstone sings "Happy Anniversary" to Wilma. 

"Ohhhh, Happy Anniversary," he wrote. "After #25years #happyanniversary to @debrobertsabc who is #wilmaflintstone to my #fredflintstone who everyone knows #marriedup".

Deborah, a news reporter for ABC, posted a slew of throwback photos to her Instagram Story to mark the day, writing at one point, "I'd say 'I do' again!"

The veteran newswoman also posted images from their wedding. 

"Dear Sweet Hubby, I remember this magical moment of pure joy (almost) like it was yesterday. It couldn't possibly have been 25 years ago. Could it??" she wrote in the caption. "25 years of love, laughter, peaks, valleys, discovery, bewilderment, bliss, struggle and all that this journey offers. But through it all we've tried to remember those beautiful and profound words spoken at our wedding. 'Love is patient, love is kind…it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.'" 

She added, "Today I celebrate all that love has allowed. Happy Anniversary my sweet, kind, generous, hilarious and real soulmate. Love, Deb."

Al and Deborah share children Leila, 21, and Nicholas, 18. He also has a daughter, Courtney, 33, from a previous marriage.

Urine trouble

Kanye West urinates on Grammy while ranting about recording contract

In the midst of his ongoing Twitter war with the music industry — and specifically Universal Records — Kanye West gave his past music accolades a different kind of live stream.

On Sept. 16, the rapper posted a video to Twitter that appears to show him urinating on one of his Grammys.

The video shows the award in a toilet. "Trust me … I WONT STOP," Kanye captioned the video, an apparent reference to his record label feud. He then continued, "TRUST ME I WONT STOP UNTIL ALL IS FAIR TRUST ME FROM NAT YE AKA BABY PUTIN."

He also asked fellow artists like Bono, Paul McCartney, Drake and even longtime nemesis Taylor Swift for support.

Kanye has been ranting for days about the music industry, even comparing it (and the NBA) to "modern day slave ships." He has been advocating for artists and athletes, especially Black artists, to free themselves from their contracts.

"I'm the new Moses," he tweeted on Sept. 14.

On Sept. 16, he didn't slow down, claiming he should be able to own the master copies of his songs, while also arguing that Black entertainers and athletes aren't getting their fair share of profits. Kanye adds that people don't speak up for fear of repercussion, something he says he's not afraid of. He claims the reason that Universal won't sell him his master records is because the label knows he can afford them. 

The diatribe continued when he uploaded copies of his 10 Universal Records contracts and implored "every lawyer in the world" to look at them. 

At the same time, he wrote, "THIS MOMENT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR GOOD … I FEEL SO HUMBLED AND BLESSED THAT GOD HAS PUT ME IN A STRONG ENOUGH POSITION TO DO THIS … EVERYONE KEEP PRAYING … ITS WORKING … I AM ON MY KNEES THIS MORNING."

He later said, "ALL THE MUSICIANS WILL BE FREE."

The rant comes while many — including Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West — suspect he's in the midst of a bipolar episode
