Kat and Kelly get engaged!

Tis the season for betrothals and the banns are all over Twitter. Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D (“L.A. Ink”) and boyfriend, DJ Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman) got engaged this past week. This is the second engagement for Von D, who temporarily split from the Canadian DJ in November. Von D accepted Deadmau5’s skull-motif diamond proposal via Twitter. Singer Kelly Clarkson is also showing off a long-awaited sizeable canary yellow diamond sparkler of her own as she and her man Brandon Blackstock revealed their plans to marry. Blackstock reportedly designed the ring himself with the help of jeweler Johnathon Arndt.

More baby news!
People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike”) is about to become a sexy dad. The actor – who reportedly plans to take a year break to pursue directing ventures – and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum (“Step Up”) recently announced that they were happily surprised to discover that they are expecting their first baby. At the start of the year, Dewan-Tatum reportedly spoke to US Weekly of her excitement at starting a family of their own, saying “I just don’t know when. When it’s meant to be, it will happen.” Well, it’s happening! Actor James Marsden (“30 Rock,” “X-Men”) knows a thing or two about family. Marsden, who has two children with ex-wife Lisa Linde (ex-Ali McIntyre, “Days of Our Lives”), recently welcomed his third child with ex-girlfriend, Brazilian model Rose Costa. While their relationship was short-lived, Marsden is reportedly being very supportive. And, fresh from her Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for “Homeland,” actress Clare Danes (“Stardust,” “Romeo + Juliet”), Marsden’s co-star in the upcoming 2013 movie release “As Cool as I Am,” is embracing new motherhood after delivering her first son with husband Hugh Dancy (“Black Hawk Down”). And finally, no, Jennifer Aniston is not pregnant with twins!

Unapologetic Rihanna.
Who needs a boyfriend who ping-pongs back and forth between his ex and you when you’ve got a famous rapper willing to gift you a getaway car and enough money to honeymoon solo with your best friend on your own island villa paradise? She may be brazen and a little naughty, but singer Rihanna isn’t spending her time moping over her reported break-up with Chris Brown after images allegedly surfaced showing his wild partying in France with tour girls and a supposed reunion dinner with not-so-ex ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. While Rihanna did vent about the whole affair on Twitter, the newly ‘single’ singer has reportedly capitulated to all the supposed roaring about how Brown is bad news for her career, not to mention that he is still on probation for his assault on her in 2009. As a reward for finally listening to reason, rapper Jay-Z reportedly gifted Rihanna with a brand new $200,000 Porsche 911 Turbo, although some reports suggest Rihanna bought herself a silver Ferrari. Either way, she can probably park her new ride in the driveway of her newly purchased $12-million, 11,000 square-foot, seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion in the Pacific Palisades.

Is Tom Cruise moving on?
Rumors are swirling that actor Tom Cruise (“Jack Reacher,” “Mission Impossible”) has set his eyes on actress Jennifer Akerman (“Rock of Ages”), actress Malin Akerman’s (“The Watchmen”) younger sister. Cruise was reportedly spotted looking quite cozy and engrossed in conversation with the actress at an after-party at the Rose Club in Stockholm, Sweden to celebrate his new film “Jack Reacher,” out Friday December 21. The “Rock of Ages” co-stars were reportedly enjoying champagne and each other’s company – even disappearing momentarily – until the wee hours. Sources say both actors are denying any romantic relationship as Akerman seems to already have a boyfriend in Los Angeles.

Simon adores Carmen?
It’s music mogul Simon Cowell’s (“X-Factor”) time to gush. A few weeks ago model/actress and singer Carmen Electra (“Baywatch”) confessed on the “Today Show” that she “adored” Simon Cowell whom she first met when she was a guest judge on “Britain’s Got Talent.” Well, Cowell’s gone one step further to say Electra’s the adorable one and that while she isn’t his girlfriend, they are “dating.” Cowell opened up to Ryan Seacrest earlier this week in an attempt to explain the reported frequent sightings of him and Electra dining out, making out and holding hands. “Not my girlfriend” – yeah right!

Taylor brings Harry home.
It’s only been a month, but nothing says “we’re solid” more than a trip to the tattoo parlor and an overnight stay at your girlfriend’s house. According to US Weekly, singer Taylor Swift and One Direction crooner Harry Styles are proving they’re inseparable as they were spotted out for a shopping trip with Swift’s mother, Andrea. Meeting his girlfriend’s mother for the first time, Styles reportedly stayed close and spent the night. Earlier a supportive Swift was reportedly seen holding the hand of Styles who went to the Shamrock Tattoo Parlor in Los Angeles to get inked again – this time with a pirate ship on his tricep.

Fake fringe for Kim Kardashian.
No one can cause a stir like Kim Kardashian. If it’s not her reportedly widely fluctuating bodyweight, it’s her booty and now it’s her bangs. When an understated, make-up light Kardashian showed up in arrivals at Los Angeles International Airport, photographers were quick to capture her new hairdo for the entire world to see. Of course, fans had to comment on Kardashian’s website, prompting her to confess her hairstylist’s secret – clip-ons! Apparently, Kardashian kept the look after getting styled for a Cosmopolitan magazine photo shoot by hair transformer Chris McMillan, who also cut Miley Cyrus’ hair and created Jennifer Aniston’s famous “Rachel” coif for “Friends.”
