Hey, what did you get for Christmas? I got pajamas, fancy towels, and a book on gender! I think that’s pretty great, but the 12 couples in this slideshow probably think their gift was better — they all got engaged over the holidays (i.e. the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s). There are so many, I thought we should keep a running list cause clearly a trend is afoot. As a formerly engaged on New Year’s Eve person, I am now anti-holiday engagement. But that’s because my engagement ended and I am reminded of that every New Year’s. But I’m glad it worked out that way, so it’s a nice reminder that I’m not married to that guy, but also, I would rather not be reminded of him at all on a holiday, you know? Well, whatever, good luck to these celeb couples who all got engaged during the holiday season! I really don’t mean to be a downer.

Reese Witherspoon is one of the Hollywood elite I could actually see myself going shopping with. She’s so talented, but seems very down-to-earth, grounded, sweet. Maybe that’s why ever since her marriage to Ryan Phillipe fell apart, I’ve been rooting for her to find happiness. Well, it seems she has, with new hubby Jim Toth … a guy who at one time, she could have never seen herself ending up with, believe it or not!
The actress talked to ELLE recently and said, “[Jim] really surprised me. You don’t know who you’re going to end up with. When I was 20, if you’d asked me … I wouldn’t have said Jim.” Super important lesson right there for all the single ladies! Read more…

Looks like that rumor is true: Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose is blabbing to Star magazine that the rapper cheated on her with Kim Kardashian (who was dating Reggie Bush at the time). Good show all around, everyone!
“Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together,” Amber told the tabloid. “She’s a homewrecker!” The model said that Kim called, texted and sent racy photos to Kanye and got busted by Amber herself, who fired off an email to which Kim never responded. “She was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person,’” Amber said. “I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded.” Keep reading »
“I want to make our wedding just about me and her loving each other. We want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it normal. It ain’t about selling the pictures, it ain’t about doing no prenup.”
That’s what Russell Brand had to say back in October 2010, just days before he wed Katy Perry in an extravagant ceremony in India. Now, of course, it seems like Brand lucked out, at least financially. Last Friday, the comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry (who didn’t want to file herself and offend her extremely religious parents) and the couples’ assets are up for grabs. Brand apparently stands to make, gulp, an estimated $20 million from the pop star’s fortune because, under California law, the state’s community property clause splits money and property acquired during the union 50/50 when there isn’t a prenup. Someone should have told Katy that rich “California Girls” cover their assets before walking down the aisle. It remains to be seen, of course, how this will actually play out in court and whether Brand will actually go for “his” half of Katy’s fortune. [Hollywood Life]
