5 Celebrity “Just Kidding” Marriage Fake-Outs

Over the weekend, Eddie Cibrian tweeted a very confusing photo. It showed him, on bended knee, holding LeAnn Rimes‘ hand, as she used her free hand to cover her mouth in excitement. The whole tableau took place before a buggy labeled “White Chapel Asylum,” and the words, “I couldn’t resist,” accompanied the image. The photo got tongues wagging about whether these two were actually tying the knot. It would have been perfect timing, as Shape magazine’s editor-in-chief had just called LeAnn a “husband stealer.” But alas, the photo was a fake. A source says that the offer wasn’t for real and was just a little “Halloween fun.” [The Huffington Post]

Here’s another to add to the growing list of insanely cute marriage proposal videos. (Keep up the good work, guys!)

Possibly The Most Elaborate Proposal Ever

On the one hand, this proposal video from a guy who calls himself “MysteryGuitarMan” is super cute, “aw”-inducing and completely next level. A fake movie trailer? Starring UFC champ Chuck Lidell? That’s pretty impressive! On the other hand, this guy proposed to his girlfriend WITH SUNGLASSES ON. What? No! If you’re going to be doing some proposing, you owe it to your lady to at least look her in the eye. Either way, this video is definitely worth watching. Keep reading »

Please, Jessica Simpson, Don’t Propose!

Jessica Simpson may be not-so-subtly nudging her new dude, Eric Johnson, to the altar. In addition to taking him on lavish trips and letting him crash at her place, she allegedly just purchased a $50,000 three carat emerald cut ring just so he would know that she doesn’t care that he’s too broke to get married. Easy there, Jess. Even if you end up buying the ring and being the breadwinner in the relationship, we really hope that you’ll at least wait until the poor dude is totally on board before you propose to him.

After the jump, some famous women who proposed to their men. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Proposing On Twitter Is Lame

This week, I tweeted about how I wished I was at Comic-Con, what was going on with my Frisky posts, and how awesome “True Blood” is, especially crazy-pants Franklin. This is the kind of light fare most people post on Twitter, because the site is a place to put links to amusing cat videos or comment about how much you love flossing. Basically, a home for the somewhat interesting things you don’t mind sharing with a group of semi-strangers. That is why I was pretty bewildered and slightly appalled when I found out people have started proposing on Twitter. Keep reading »

“Put A Ring On It” Kind Of Gives Me The Sads


A reader sent me a link to the pilot episode for a new web series on weTV.com called “Put A Ring On It,” a show that covers real-life, over-the-top marriage proposals. “I think you will really like this one,” she wrote, “a guy calls a team of proposal experts to help him freeze time for his proposal.” Intrigued, I watched the clip, but I can’t say I share the same enthusiasm as the reader who sent it to me. Sure, I love a good proposal story as much as the next person, but there’s something a bit icky and disingenuous about turning what should be an intimate moment into entertainment for other people (says the girl who’s watched every season of “The Bachelor/ette”). We aren’t talking about a proposal that happens to be videotaped and slapped on YouTube; this is a real production with a team of “experts,” including a stylist, a techie and a relationship guru, as well as producers, and multiple cameras. And while there’s certainly nothing wrong with a big production, in this case the sentiment seems to get lost. Maybe the guy was just nervous — he’s not only proposing, after all, he’s performing a role … for a show — but where’s his excitement? Where’s the love? I guess I’m just not feeling it for “Put A Ring On It.” Are you? Keep reading »
