Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green rushed off to Hawaii to make it official in a small ceremony of friends and family. This is not a typical Hollywood or L.A. relationship though since the two have been together since 2004 which is like a decade in Tinseltown years. They dated and stayed together for over 6 years which is very impressive and shockingly normal. They met on the set of the show Hope and Faith and even years later still look to be blissfully happy together. This is the first marriage for both of them, but Brian has a child with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Marcil.
TMZ just posted photos of the couple finally showing off their wedding rings on a beach excursion (shown here). There are some Hollywood relationships that seem doomed from the start, but considering that the couple have stayed in a healthy relationship for years before hitching the wagon is a fantastic jumpstart. All I can say is congratulations. Where the heck are the wedding photos?
The stories have been hot and heavy about the greatly anticipated engagement of Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper. Unfortunately, they aren’t true. While the two are most certainly dating, the rumor mills just couldn’t stop speculating. The madness started when Renee Zellweger was spotted searching for wedding dresses and then to make matters worse was then spotted with Bradley Cooper dining with her parents.
The beautiful couple had starred together in the film Case 39, and started dating back in July 2009, so they are creeping up on a year together which in Hollywood relationships is practically common law marriage. Regardless, Bradley gets a kick reading about how his love life is going from the tabloid rags, but reps from both parties say NO to saying YES.
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.
2) 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.
3) Joanna Garcia and Nick Swisher
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.
Sometimes a couple is together for so long that you simply just can’t see them with anyone else. Such is the case with Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen who were married for over 25 years until their official divorce in 2007 even though the papers were filed two years prior in 2005. The demise was primarily due to Eddie’s addiction to Coke which was the ultimatum set by Valerie. Eddie chose the Coke.
While Eddie wrestled his demons, Valerie had begun a relationship with her financial planner Tom Vitale in 2004. A disturbingly convenient person to have on your side during a divorce for sure. The relationship blossomed and as of yesterday during a trip to Florence, Italy, Tom proposed and Valerie accepted. Valerie told the press, “We’d talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”
Tom will do the wedding planning since apparently he even has specific ideas about what type of bells should ring during the ceremony. Now that is a man in touch with his feminine side for sure. He was deathly nervous about asking her stating that, “If the time wasn’t right, I wouldn’t have asked. We’re both still a little afraid of commitment, but then we were over there, and it was like our souls were calibrated.” So ladies and gentlemen, a big congratulations are in order because Valerie, you deserve it!
So here they are in no particular order, the top 5 celebrity rumors of January 2010 and we kept the theme about celebrity wedding engagements this time around.

1) Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Are Engaged
Ok, yeah. This one came onto the scene and then disappeared and now is back again. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are apparently engaged again and the rumor mills are a buzz. When asked about the engagement, Brian Austin Green noted on his Twitter account, “Engaged and have a son from my previous relationship.” Since then, the post was taken down and the account was also closed. There’s been no input from Megan’s camp.
The Verdict: False. While this would be a great boon for Green, Megan Fox is the most sought after actress not only in film, but also in her personal life. Everyone wants Megan Fox and she certainly knows that taking herself of the market is career suicide and part of what makes her sexy is because she’s available. It is certainly not her acting skills.

2) Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell
Paul McCartney is rumored to be engaged to Nancy Shevell from New York City and they were just seen together at the Golden Globes. She’s known the McCartney family for over 20 years and comes from a wealthy family so she doesn’t have any need for Paul’s money in the shadow of a divorce with Heather Mills who walked away with $49 Million after the very nasty divorce. While friends and family had an issue with Paul’s ex Heather Mills, everyone loves Nancy including Paul’s 38 year old daughter.
Verdict: True. Let’s face it, Paul is an all or nothing type of guy and he has to be in a relationship to be happy. As he gets older, that desire simply isn’t going away. Family and friends have already bought into it, so if it isn’t true, it will be soon.

3) Miley Cyrus is Engaged to Liam Hemsworth
The rumor mill is abuzz about Miley Cyrus getting engaged to 20 year old Liam Hemsworth. This rumor got jumpstarted when Miley appeared at a Grammy Awards ceremony wearing an engagement ring. Ok, let’s go ahead and not even talk about this now.
Verdict: False.Heck no. Don’t believe it. Not only is she too young to get married, but her father would never let that happen at this stage of her career. I see her hitching the wagon about 10 years from now, but not right now.
4) Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Are Engaged

Baseball hero Derek Jeter is rumored to be engaged to Minka Kelly, the actress from Friday Night Lights. The New York Post is even reporting that they already have the wedding venue picked out at the Oheka Castle. Sorry. While it seems like there’s enough evidence to back this up, I’m going to cry foul ball on this.
Verdict: False. This is one of those that could swing either way. No pun intended. But with all of the drama that follows Derek Jeter on a regular basis and his well documented exploits, I find it hard to believe that he’s getting engaged this quickly jumping into a relationship of this magnitude. So, I’ll say false for now, but maybe true later on in the year.

5) Russell Brand and Katy Perry
Comedian/Actor Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry supposedly are planning to tie the knot. These two are certifiably insane and made for each other, but are they really engaged? While the couple has been seen attached at the hip at multiple events, it’s not known if the relationship is anything more than just that.
Verdict: hmmm, False. While they may be in a relationship, I’m not buying the engagement. They may have talked about it and even wear rings, but the two of them are individually unstable, so I don’t see this working out.
If these rumors were true, and some of them just may be, which one do you actually care about?
So there you have it. I’ll gather more engagement rumors for February 2010 for you.
True Blood star, Anna Pacquin, 27, is engaged to her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, 39, but they are not in any rush whatsoever to hit the aisle. Anna recently told press that, “We’re not planning the wedding yet. I’m not really that girl, we’re not really that couple. We’re happy and things are good and we’re not on any particular schedule and it’ll happen when we have time.”
Stephen apparently feels exactly the same as they enjoy their success and focusing on planning a wedding is just not on the radar right now. Good thing because Anna is also terrified of thinking about being in a poofy wedding dress and just isn’t that type of girl.
“It feels organic. It’s more about being family than becoming Bridezilla overnight and wearing some big meringue wedding dress. That would scare the s**t out of me. I wasn’t the girl who spent hours dreaming of my wedding.”
So while they enjoy spending good quality time together as an engaged couple, True Blood fans will simply have to wait if they want to see the love bleed over into the real world. No pun intended.
Say it ain’t so. One thing us married guys have had is the ability to live vicariously through Vince Vaughn. He’s a man’s man. A hot dog munching, beer drinking, football watchin’ man’s man. We’ve watched as he dated women that have haunted our psyche and smiled knowing that he was part of our secret team. Apparently, no more.
Vince Vaughn is planning on getting married to a Canadian real estate agent named Kyla Weber. He proposed on Valentines Day, so he kept it under wraps pretty well. Vaughn joked that she’s using him for a green card. But when did all of this happen? Wasn’t he just dating Jennifer not even a year ago?
But it does beg to question about what happened between him and Jennifer Aniston. Some say that they only hooked up to push the movie they were in together and that it was all a set up. But this one is obviously real, although in every interview, it moves to the topic of his new movie Couples Retreat and never continues to talk about the relationship between him and Kyla. Another setup?
Needless to say that we can’t seem to find any info on when the wedding is planned, or any details at all for that matter. She’s very pretty and unfettered by Hollywood (for now) and they like shopping. Oh well, at least we still have George Clooney whose acting chops are actually pretty brilliant (O Brother Where Art Thou), good looking guy, dates beautiful women that wouldn’t grant guys like us a second glance. So, ok, we’ll live through Clooney now. Oh yeah, there’s also Matthew McConaughey, but his acting is painful to watch. Big box office draw though. Nah, we’d rather have George as our wingman.
