Bobby Brown Proposes On Stage, Like Too Many Before Him

On Friday, Bobby Brown asked his girlfriend of three years, Alicia Etheridge, to marry him, while playing a music festival in Jacksonville, Florida. In the middle of his set, he invited Alicia and their baby, Cassius, on stage. And in time-honored famous person fashion, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him in front of oodles of screaming fans. The moment was so sweet that we won’t even comment on how the heck someone can marry this man after his history with Whitney. [People]

What’s up with celebrities doing this? After the jump, other celebs who’ve gotten engaged on stage in recent memory. Keep reading »

Reggie Bush To Propose To Kim Kardashian—If He Wins The Super Bowl

We’ve shared with you some pretty lame proposals recently—the proposal via Twitter, the “Entourage” proposal mid-fight, the helium balloon proposal. But I’ve never heard of the “If I win a Super Bowl ring, you get an engagement ring” proposal. Apparently, that’s what’s going on with Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush. According to the New York Post, if the Saints win the Super Bowl, the on-and-off-again couple is gonna get hitched. I’m just thinking that the decision to get married is probably not one you want to leave up to chance? I mean, it’s not like placing a $100 bet on the game. [NY Post] Keep reading »

John Krasinski Shares How He Proposed To Emily Blunt

When a couple gets engaged, the first thing people want to know is what the ring looks like, the second is how he proposed. We’ve already seen Emily Blunt‘s engagement ring, and today, John Krasinski told the ladies of “The View” how he asked her to marry him. John’s proposal was old school: “It’s funny, everybody asks me, ‘Did you get on your knee?’ And I’m like, ‘That’s what you do, right?’” Watch him describe it in the above clip!

Are Marriage Proposals Dead?

On the season finale of “Entourage” this week, one of the characters, Eric, proposes to his girlfriend, Sloan, only it wasn’t a romantic get-down-on-one-knee proposal, so much as it was a seemingly spur-of-the-moment declaration of his commitment to her. “You’re never going to be able to commit — not to anyone,” Sloan accuses during a heated argument. “I’ll get in that car right now, drive to Vegas, and commit to you for the rest of my life,” Eric shoots back before pulling an engagement ring out of his pocket. It’s not exactly the kind of grand proposal women dream of, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s more than most of us get these days … and if maybe that’s OK. Keep reading »

Frisky Exclusive Q&A: Guy Proposes To His Girlfriend Via Whisper Chain

By now you might have seen the video above, in which a guy simultaneously sets a Guinness World Record (for the longest whisper chain at 59 people) and proposes to his girlfriend. But when I saw it, I realized something — hey, I KNOW that guy! His name is Jake Bronstein and you may recognize him as a cast member from “Road Rules: Islands” (1997) if you are as old as I am and a devoted watcher of MTV’s crap. Since then, he’s pretty much avoided the reality TV ghetto, instead working at a variety of men’s magazines, launching his own blog, Zoomdoggle, and helping to bring our new web series, “MERRIMe.com,” to the masses. The last time I saw Jake, he told me about his girlfriend, Kristina, and said he was “gettin’ engaged soon.” Little did I realize that their engagement would become viral video fodder. Jake was nice enough to tear himself away from engagement bliss to answer a few questions about his aww-inducing proposal. Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

Romance 2.0: Dude Proposes To Girlfriend On Twitter

Dudes, don’t take any cues from Drew Olanoff. The Twitter user, who apparently is known for starting the Twitter campaign “#blamedrewscancer” after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, proposed to his girlfriend via Twitter. Sarah Cooley said yes, but we wouldn’t blame her for being pissed that he asked for her hand in marriage in such a public way — and not even in person! [Mashable] Keep reading »

Is It A Proposal If There Isn’t A Ring?

Times are tough around the world, and we’re all cutting back in some area of our life. In Japan, one common cost-cutting measure seems to be diamond engagement rings. The percent of men who bought engagement rings will slip from 1993′s 80 percent to just 50 percent this year, according to estimates from the Yano Research Institute. Some couples are deciding to spend more on wedding bands, or to buy watches or other jewelry rather than investing in a rock. Certainly, people shouldn’t purchase engagement rings they can’t afford, but do you think it’s even necessary for a man to propose with a ring? We asked three women for their thoughts.

A $2,600 Proposal Cake?

Figuring out how to propose can be just as nerve racking as deciding on an engagement ring and determining when to propose, and an entrepreneur is trying to make the proposal just as special as the ring itself. Angelito Araneta Jr. has created a chocolate cake covered in 24-karat gold leaves and topped with 15 African diamonds. He plans to sell these $2,558 cakes to men who are about to pop the question. Umm, I love chocolate and luxury as much as the next gal, but this is too much. I’d prefer my boyfriend add that extra $2,600 to the cost of my engagement ring. Or better yet, take me on a trip to the Caribbean and and then ask for my hand. I think my rock would go just as well with a Bahama Mama as it would with cake, but hopefully he won’t propose on the Booze Cruise. Actually, I’d admire my future husband even more if he put that money towards a down payment on our love nest. Now, forget the ridiculous price and think about the potential injuries. Gold leaf is edible, but diamonds are the hardest substance on this planet, and probably shouln’t be chewed. Even if these aren’t conflict diamonds, they’ll literally be blood diamonds.

Being Engaged: It’s Not So Bad!

You might remember back in December when I was home for the holidays my mom passed down my great-grandmother’s engagement ring and I debated whether to use it for my own engagement. At the time, my boyfriend, Drew, and I were talking marriage pretty seriously and I knew I needed to make a decision about the ring soon or at least point Drew in the right direction for a different option. The family heirloom was mine to keep whatever I decided to do with it, so I brought it back to New York with me and thought about it for a few weeks. When one of my best friends — a gay guy with incredible taste — came to visit from Chicago, I showed him the ring and he all but declared I MUST use it as an engagement ring.
