"The Talk" host Sara Gilbert announced her engagement to songwriting girlfriend Linda Perry on yesterday's episode of her talk show. Perry, who penned pop mega hits like Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and Pink's "Get This Party Started," arranged a musical number to The Cure's "Love Song" as part of an elaborate proposal to the former "Roseanne" star.
Gilbert (obviously) said "yes."
The two have been dating since 2011. Gilbert has two children, Levi, 8 and Sawyer, 5, from a previous relationship with TV producer Allison Adler.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their engagement last April but have yet to release many details regarding their upcoming nuptials. So when the 37-year-old actress was spotted arriving at LAX last week after a humanitarian trip to the Congo, wearing a simple gold band on her ring finger in place of her engagement bling, it sparked some questions.
Did the "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" costars wed in secret?
TMZ asked Jolie on film as she ducked into her SUV if her new gold band was, in fact, a wedding ring, but the mother of six kept her answer short and sweet: "No, it's not."
Well that settles that! No clues as to when the A-list couple's vows are in our future but we'll be waiting patiently by our mailbox for our invite. We're sure we'll be the first to know.

The prince was partaking in a game of "strip billiards" in his VIP suite, according to TMZ.

Katie Holmes has enrolled her six-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise, in Manhattan's Convent of the Sacred Heart School, according to E! News. Holmes and Cruise settled their divorce last week, and there's been much speculation about whether Scientology, Cruise's religion, played a role in the couple's split (Cruise’s lawyer denied that the religion was a factor in the divorce). The school reportedly costs $38,000 a year, and past students include Lady Gaga, Jordana Brewster, Nicky Hilton, and Caroline Kennedy. Are you surprised by Holmes's move to send Suri to Catholic school?
