“Help! I Swallowed My Engagement Ring!”

Your marriage proposal is meant to be romantic. It’s something you’re supposed to remember for the rest of your life. Well this couple will never forget how they got engaged. Reed Harris was trying to be sneaky when he hid an engagement ring in his girlfriend’s Frosty milkshake from Wendy’s. But when she gulped the sweet treat down fast, the ring was lost down her throat and headed for her stomach. X-rays confirmed the ring was chillin’ in her stomach — a bag of prunes and high fiber cereal later, she finally had her rock. But this isn’t the only unusual thing that’s happened to engagement rings and wedding bands. After the jump, five more weird stories that will remind you to never hide something valuable in food.

Don’t Be So Quick To Blame Stress For Your Gray Hair

Everybody told me my premature gray hairs were due to stress or genes. Some of that is probably true. My mom is completely gray and my boyfriend has contributed to at least seven of my silver-colored strands. But there’s a more scientific explanation for going gray. Researchers have discovered that gray hairs occur because of a build up of hydrogen peroxide. Yeah, it’s not just for blonds. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced in the body and interferes with the melanin, which is the pigment that colors our hair and skin. So the more it builds up, the grayer we get. Eek! Scientists are optimistic there will be products on the market soon to remove the excess hydrogen peroxide from our hair, so we can keep our brilliant color for as long as possible. The hair industry will definitely be interested in this research and consumers will obviously be too. After all, the money spent on hair care products is projected to reach $42.5 billion by 2010. I think any solution to slow down the aging effects of gray hair is worth every penny. Do you? [MSNBC]

Rumors Fly That Rihanna Will Be Testifying FOR Chris Brown

I’m so over this Chris Brown/Rihanna drama, but the scandal may finally be coming to a rest, but not without more sadness. It was reported that the pop princess was seen all over Miami with Brown, which led to speculation that she forgave him and wanted to work things out. If that act alone wasn’t a big step for Rihanna, now she’s going above and beyond what any alleged abuse victim should be doing. Supposedly, Rihanna has agreed to speak to the prosecutors on Chris’ behalf. She doesn’t want Chris getting in any more trouble than he’s already in, and if need be, will admit to “her part” in the incident. WTF?! An anonymous source says that Chris Brown and the L.A. prosecutors are extremely close to a plea deal. According to that insider, Chris would plead no contest to misdemeanor domestic battery and receive no jail time. Wow. Does Rihanna not remember what her face looked like after Chris (allegedly) hit her? I hope she knows what she’s doing. But at only 21, I doubt it. [Newsguru] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Jennifer Aniston Won’t Stop Talking About How Everyone Says She Won’t Stop Talking

“No matter what I say, things will always be taken out of context and misinterpreted, will always be turned around to make it seem as though I won’t let something go, or that I just keep talking about it over and over. I don’t owe anybody anything. I don’t owe anybody my side of the story. There are no sides! There is no bad guy and there is no good guy. There are no villains and there is no heroine in this story.” – Jennifer Aniston in British Elle
