Wedding Bliss: Jessica Simpson Engaged?!

Sources have confirmed to UsMagazine.com that Jessica Simpson dud in fact got engaged to beau Eric Johnson on Thursday, just days after Us broke the news that her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, popped the question to Vanessa Minnillo, his love of nearly five years. Simpson and Lachey, 37, split in 2005, after three years of marriage.

On Saturday, Simpson flashed a sizable ring on her left hand during an appearance at Dillard’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas City. Multiple sources later confirmed the pair was planning to tie the knot.

“We are excited to confirm that they are engaged,” Simpson’s rep told People.

The Texas native began dating the former NFL player in May while he was estranged from his first wife, stylist Keri Johnson; their divorce was finalized five months later.

“I met a wonderful man. Damn I’m lucky!” Simpson tweeted in September, gushing about her new relationship.

The newly engaged couple will spend Thanksgiving in New York, where Simpson is scheduled to perform during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade; Johnson‘s family will join her on the float.

“Having a boyfriend through the holidays, we’re going to see how that all splits up,” the singer told Ryan Seacrest during a KIIS-FM radio interview last week. “I can’t imagine not being with my nephew and watching him open gifts. Maybe someone gets Christmas Eve and somebody gets Christmas day.”

Though Ashlee Simpson-Wentz recently told Us that her sister “is happy, so we’re all really happy,” sources insist that most of Simpson‘s friends are concerned about Johnson‘s motives for dating the singer.

“Eric was never that successful in the NFL, but he’s always wanted the celebrity lifestyle,” a source told Us in October. “Her friends do not trust him.”

Jessica’s Engagement News Greeted With Jeers, Skepticism

If Jessica Simpson expected the Internet to erupt in a collective “mazel tov!” when she confirmed her engagement to Eric Johnson on Sunday, she probably felt a wee bit disappointed.

The goodwill that the likeable starlet, 30, has long enjoyed (except maybe for that mom jeans moment) seemed to take a nasty turn at the news that Johnson, her boyfriend of five-plus months, had slipped a non-traditional-looking gold, ruby and diamond engagement ring on her finger.

Amid a smattering of well-wishes, the online masses found a lot to gripe about over her betrothal. Chief among the complaints: That the question-popping announcement came off as — and we’re paraphrasing here — a “desperate,” “pathetic” and “tacky” case of face-saving “one-upmanship,” falling as it did just days after Simpson‘s ex-husband, Nick Lachey, proposed to Vanessa Minnillo, his girlfriend of four years.

Other factors contributing to the wave of disapproval and predictions of romantic doom included the swiftness of their engagement; the fact that Johnson finalized his divorce just last month; and that his career has been in limbo since his post-Yale stint with the NFL (he reportedly bailed on pursuing his MBA at the Wharton School of Business when he hooked up with Jessica in May).

One commenter has even coined the phrase “pulling a Jessica,” which apparently means dropping hints to your boyfriend that it’s time to make a commitment, for better or worse.

Our take? We’ve always liked Simpson and wish her nothing but happiness. Are we worried that she’s rushing into things with Johnson? Sure, but love doesn’t necessarily follow a timeline. Plenty of couples have sprinted to the altar and enjoyed a happily-ever-after (and plenty of others haven’t — we’re looking at you, Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney).

Either way, we strongly urge Jessica to get a prenup.

Also, the timing is definitely … awkward. Would it have been better from a PR standpoint for them to keep the betrothal hush-hush for a few months to get some distance from Nick and Vanessa? Almost certainly.

Simpson and Johnson‘s engagement is now irrevocably tied to Lachey and Minnillo‘s, with the dueling nuptials sure to fuel a tabloid competition: Who has the better ring? Whose dress is more elaborate? Who will star in “Newlyweds 2.0”? Who will get knocked up first (by the by, we expect the shotgun-wedding rumors to start any second now for Jess and Eric)? It’s not an ideal situation for either duo.

The proposal also comes amid talk that Jessica was “deeply saddened” by Nick‘s engagement (she insists that she couldn’t be happier for her ex, whom she split with in 2005), and that she’d taken a potshot at Minnillo during a recent run-in at a Los Angeles restaurant, supposedly sniping, “I hope Vanessa likes her clothes because I bought them for her, since Nick took all my money.”

Still, Simpson has made it clear (as is her public-gushing custom) that Johnson is everything she could want and more.

“This is just normal, thank God. He’s very, very supportive,” Simpson enthused to People mag last month of her “hottie” squeeze. “[I] couldn’t ask for a better man in my life right now.”

Speaking of men in her life, we can’t forget to mention her dad, Joe, who reportedly never warmed up to Lachey, causing tension in the MTV-chronicled marriage.

He quickly tweeted his best wishes, saying that he’s “so very happy for Jess and Eric. May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness.” No word on whether that also includes giving them some space.

In what we consider a troubling sign, Papa Joe tagged along back in July when Jess celebrated her 30th birthday with Johnson on a yacht in Capri. Paparazzi snapped him standing just a few uncomfortable feet away as his little girl smooched and straddled her beau.

“What are your thoughts about Jessica’s engagement? I think it’s a bit selfish on her man’s part (Eric Johnson), being that she probably didn’t know about it, but we really never know. Either way congrats to the couple. I wish them good luck & love.”

Wedding Bells: T.I. & Tiny Officially Say I Do in Three Cities

T.I. and longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle have officially tied the knot on Saturday, July 31, 2010 in Miami, according to MTV News. The nuptials are best described as a fairytale wedding! After exchanging vows at the courthouse on Friday, TI and Tiny did it up right on Miami’s Star Island Saturday. Tiny wore a Valentino gown and TI wore a white tuxedo by Prada. They arrived at the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage that looked like Cinderella’s pumpkin. The party even included fireworks.

The guest list reportedly included names like Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Young Dro, Yung LA and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Usher, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri and more partied until the wee hours of the morning at Cameo Nightclub last night.  Rihanna was also spotted in the building after performing at American Airlines Arena. Bow Wow and Angela Simmons were there too. El DeBarge sang for the happy couple. After the wedding, the new Mr. and Mrs. Harris went to Atlanta and then Las Vegas for more celebrations.

Tiny’s rep Prince Kennedy denied rumors that the couple is to say “I do” in yet another locale. “A lot of people initially heard they were doing it in Hawaii. They are not,” says Kennedy.

Though it would seem the couple has made the wedding a big to-do, Tiny said earlier this year she wanted a “private” wedding and was waiting for the right moment to make it official.

“We living, we’re happy, we’re in love. I mean, it’s no doubt in my mind that he doesn’t love every piece of me and vice versa, so we’re just doing what’s comfortable and what works for us,” Tiny told Vibe magazine. “Tiny and T.I.: Not for the world. When we get ready to make a move, we will make it. We just can’t do it for everybody.”

Check out some photos from their wedding night below….

Katy Perry could be getting married… in the next five years, if her plans work out. The sexy singer said that marriage is in the cards but not right now.

The singer, who has been having an on-again, off-again relationship with musician Travis McCoy, says: “I’d love to be married in the next five years. “But as much as I make plans, I can also be spontaneous. So if I find that one person, then f*** it – why would I wait?” At the moment, just having someone she can share her life with appeals to Perry. She says: “I want someone to tell the details to – that I had dinner with Paul McCartney or that I met Madonna. “I’m on this extraordinary adventure and if I have no one to talk to at the end of the night, I feel lonely.”

When Kevin Jonas asked his girlfriend Danielle Deleasa to marry him early Wednesday morning, she was too stunned to notice the one-of-a-kind diamond ring he designed for her. “I didn’t see the ring for a while because I couldn’t believe what he just asked me,” Deleasa told PEOPLE. “I was looking at him, like “Are you serious? When he pulled out that ring, I was like ‘Oh gosh.’ I said something like ‘Oh my God,’ and then I started crying.” But once she wiped away her tears of joy — and said yes over and over again — what she saw before her was a three-carat cushion-cut diamond set in platinum above double shank band with 210 round pave diamonds (pictured here), according to Angela Arabo, Jacob & Co vice president, who worked with Kevin to design the ring. The star “had done his homework,” Arabo said. “He knew exactly what he wanted.” The two collaborated over the phone and email. “When he got the ring, he called me and said it was the most beautiful ring and it was exactly how he imagined. He was really excited. He couldn’t wait to propose to her.” Kevin Jonas, 21, proposed to Deleasa, 22, surprising her at her doorstep early on Wednesday morning — flying overnight after a Jonas Brothers concert in Vancouver. Arabo talked to the happy couple Wednesday night and wished them the best. “He was very happy and thrilled. Danielle is very happy and she has the ring on right now.” No wedding date has been set yet. Right now, Kevin told PEOPLE, ““We’re just ready to celebrate with friends and family and of course all our fans.”

Wedding Bells: Natasha Bedingfield Ties the Knot

Natasha Bedingfield has found her “Soulmate.”

The British singer married California businessman Matthew Robinson in Malibu, California on Saturday, reports Usmagazine.com.

“Our wedding day was everything we’d hope it would be,” said the 27-year-old bride. “It was simple, beautiful and natural. Free from trappings or formalities, it was more about expressing our love for one another infront of those we hold dearest to us than anything else.”

Bedingfield wore a cream silk Vera Wang dress and H Stern jewelry while the groom wore Armani. The 30-minute ceremony took place in front of about 150 guests at the Church Estates Vineyards, where Fergie and Josh Duhamel wed in February.

The newlyweds dated for two years before announcing their engagement in 2008.
