Celebrities That Got Engaged – June 2010 Edition

As you know, we try and find the most intriguing wedding engagements of your favorite celebrities to see if any of it is true. We try to be as good as Get Married’s Wedding Dish, but that’s a heck of a pinnacle to reach.  But we’ll try for now.

1) Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

We covered this previously a couple of weeks ago and we said that not only was singer/pianist Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz engaged, but that she also looked pregnant to us.  We were right! I love it when we’re right. This will be Swizz Beatz second marriage. His first marriage just recently came to an end and he has a child from the relationship. The ink on his first divorce is barely dry, but if you’re going to have a fall back girl, Alicia Keys is a fantastic catch. Alicia has never been previously married, but also has never been pregnant.  We’re sure that the two will make beautiful music together both in and out of the studio, but it’s still shocking that she accepted all of the drama that will come with this. The couple will get married in France this coming July.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert get engaged2) Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton

Country music has its collection of hot women and hot guys, but no one saw that two of their hottest stars would decide that they needed to be together.  So is the case with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton who quietly got engaged last month in the, um,…woods.  Blake proposed to Miranda while they were in the woods in Tishomingo, Oklahoma which is where she lives.  See? I told you people actually lived in Oklahoma. In towns called Tishomingo. Either way, the couple did the dating thing behind the curtains and when they came out, they were happily engaged to be married.  No wedding date has been set and the engagement is confirmed by both parties.

The Gossip Girl’s Joanna Garcia aka Bree Buckley, gets engaged to NY Yankee outfielder Nick Swisher aka Nick Swisher. It apparently happened a month ago and they attempted to keep it quiet, but Joanna couldn’t keep a very good secret as she started going out and about with that huge rock on her finger. Garcia is obviously a hot commodity since she was previously engaged to Justin Timberlake’s business partner Trace Ayala. Not certain what happened there, but it appears that it didn’t work out for them.  Either way, Joanna and Nick have been together since September of last year and it looks like it is ON! Just like that huge rock on her wedding digit.

4) Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower

Their real names may not be familiar to many, but their characters are. Bonnie Wright plays Ginny Weasley in the uber-popular Harry Potter movies and Jamie Campbell Bower plays Caius in the Twilight Series: New Moon film. Now that we’re on the same page, the more shocking revelation is that Bonnie Wright is a mere 19 years old. While that may be “over the hill” in a secluded Indian tribe, it’s kind of scary in the normal populated world.  But love is love and they certainly are financially stable enough to support themselves, so go on you crazy kids.  As long as you don’t have to live in your parents basement, knock yourselves out.  Their relationship began in October of 2009 and it’s believed that Jamie proposed back in April although it’s just coming to light now.  Sources close to the couple say that they are madly in love. And for those of us who are over 40, we can now roll our eyes as we recall how madly in love we would get back in our teens.  I barely remember names. Not saying that it’s not the real deal, but a step on the brakes may be appropriate to slow this bus down a little.  Stay engaged until you’re old enough to legally have a drink with the girls and then make that jump. Either way, they are engaged and on our list.

5) Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale

After a long abusive and drug riddled marriage to rocker Eddie Van Halen, Valerie Bertinelli filed for divorce and walked away from over 2 and half decades of a marriage that most of America saw as a match made in idol heaven.  The world’s most well known rock guitarist married to the world’s best known TV actress (at the time).  I personally think that she is still mega hot. As we covered a couple of weeks back, after the divorce, Valerie then began a relationship with Tom Vitale who was her financial planner. That’s a good person to have on your side in a divorce of that magnitude. Tom proposed to Valerie during a trip they took to Florence Italy. He was extremely nervous even though he had no reason to be since Valerie was extremely excited and quickly accepted. No decisions have been made as to when or where the two will tie the knot, but Valerie is certainly ready for a fresh new start and Valerie says that Tom will do most of the wedding planning since he’s very into that and probably wants to keep an eye on the purse strings.

Which engagement do YOU care about the most?
