Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Brad and Angelina To Make It Official!
After years of speculation Brad and Angelina have finally made it official and revealed that they are engaged. After jeweller Robert Procop let slip that he had helped Brad design an engagement ring for his girlfriend of seven years, Brad’s manager  Cynthia Pett-Dante substantiated the good news saying: ‘Yes, it’s confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.’ And the ring is no ordinary sparkler. The emerald cut diamond with tapered baguette stones on the band was codesigned by Brad himself who had been working on the design for a whole year! Procop’s team said in a statement ‘Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect.’ And far from still being the victim, Brad’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston was said to be thrilled by the news. A friend of Jen’s has told the ‘Jennifer is happy for Brad and Angelina. She is so in love with Justin, that she is really grateful how things turned out. In a strange way if it weren’t for Angelina, Jennifer would not have connected with Justin in a romantic way. Jennifer is in a really wonderful place right now, I wouldn’t be surprised if she even went to their wedding.’ Well we’ll see about that!

Although Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez last Monday, it has been reported that he tried one last time to reconcile with his estranged wife. Nine months after the couple split, Marc had a heart to heart with Jennifer asking her whether they could try again. According to TMZ, a source said that Marc was rebuffed as JLo confessed she was in love with her new beau, backing dancer Casper Smart, and wanted to give that relationship a shot. Marc Anthony was said to have been ‘blindsided’ never guessing that Jen’s relationship was already so serious which is why he filed for divorce last week citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce will be the third for Jennifer and the second for Marc but these romantics seem to be eternally hopeful so we’re sure they’ll both walk down the aisle again in the future!

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Still Scarred From Divorce
Scarlett Johansson has opened up about her divorce from fellow actor Ryan Reynolds for the first time. While Scarlett has dated actor Sean Penn and ad exec Nate Naylor since the split and Ryan has dated Blake Lively, the actress revealed that she still hasn’t got over the end of her two year marriage. She admits that she and Ryan are now ‘comically amicable’, but goes on to say that the breakup was ‘horrible . . . Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out.’ The actress, 27 , went on to tell US Vogue ‘I don’t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better,’ she says. ‘It’s like the loneliest thing you’ll ever do, in some way. More than anything, it’s just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird. There’s no rule book. I think it’s just time.’

Simon CowellGenerous Simon Lets Mezhgan Keep The House
Who wouldn’t want to date Simon Cowell,  he’s rich, powerful and even though he’s a ladies man and the relationship probably wouldn’t last, he is more than happy to make sure that his exes are well looked after financially! A new biography on the media mogul (and some would say a thinly veiled autobiography), has revealed that Simon and his makeup artist fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy split up last year and he intends to give her his $5 million house in Beverley Hills as a parting gift. This is not the first time that he has been generous with his exes. Simon is known to stay friendly with his ex-girlfriends and in fact Jackie St Clair, Sinitta and Terri Seymour often go on holidays and to events with Simon. When he broke up with Terri after they moved to the states for US  X Factor, he bought her a $4.6million place in LA to ease the pain of the split. In both the Terri and Mezghan splits, he blamed his obsession with work for driving a wedge between them. If only all exes were so lavish!

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[BlindGossip] They have passed the five-year point, so the marriage is over! They are living separately, their public appearances as a couple are down to once or twice a month (tops), and any time together is as much about keeping the child/ren connected to the whole family as it is to be seen together for the paparazzi.
Here’s the timing for the announcement of the split: He has two big projects this year. She has already agreed to chip in and help promote the first project with red carpet appearances and positive interview mentions. If that occurs (and we believe it will), the official split will be announced during the summer lull. If she takes an additional payout and waits until after the second release, the announcement will be made approximately New Years 2013.
