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.
