Ring the wedding bells in the 90210! The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star said yes on Aug. 22 when her boyfriend popped the question. Congrats!
Taylor Armstrong has found happiness again. The 42-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is engaged to boyfriend John Bluher after his stunning romantic proposal in Mexico on Aug. 22.
Taylor Armstrong & John Bluher Get Engaged
John, who was previously Taylor’s lawyer, popped the question at the gorgeous St. Regis Punta Mita Resort in Mexico, according to Us Weekly. John reportedly dropped to one knee at sunset on the beach under a white tent filled with roses and lilies.
After Taylor said yes — and slipped on her ring by Ari Soffer — the newly engaged couple reportedly headed back to the resort for a lavish dinner — with plenty of wine!
“The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is where we fell in love, it was the perfect choice for this wonderful occasion” John told Us. “Taylor was beautiful and never stopped smiling!”
Taylor Armstrong Overcoming Tragedy
Taylor deserves some happiness after going through an incredibly difficult time. As Housewives fans know, Taylor’s husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide in Aug. 2011. After that tragedy, Taylor went into a downward spiral, developing a drinking problem that got so bad Kyle and Kim Richards actually staged an intervention during the most recent season of RHOBH.
But the reality star has clearly found an incredible support system in John. “He is a beautiful man,” Taylor told E! in February. “I didn’t think I would ever be able to trust someone completely. But somehow, he opened my heart and I let him in.”
As of now, there is no reported wedding date.
We couldn’t be happier for Taylor and John — they both deserve to find love!
Rob recently locked lips with the smoldering supermodel for a Dior Homme photoshoot — you’ve seen the pics, now find out how R-Patz actually felt about the steamy smooch!
The photos of Robert Pattinsonand Camille Rowe embracing for a Dior Homme fragrance ad certainly look hot, but what was the real thing like? R-Patz tells all about the sexy kiss in a new interview!
Robert Pattinson & Camille Rowe: On-Set Chemistry?
The 27-year-old actor-turned-model had only good things to say about his steamy shoot — and makeout session — with Camille in a new interview with GQ Spain.
When asked if Camille was intimidated to be kissing such a big star, Rob answered, “No, I don’t think so. If she was, she certainly didn’t show it to me!”
Rob continued, suggesting that he and the 24-year-old temptress had fantastic chemistry, and that their photographed hookup was nothing like some of the awkward love scenes he’s had to film in the past. “If you have to kiss someone who you don’t know and the person keeps their distance or backs off, it’s horrible,” Rob says.
But apparently Rob didn’t have to worry about any of that with Camille!
Robert Pattinson & Camilla Rowe’s Sexy Dior Ad
And actions speak louder than words anyways, right? If that’s the case then the chemistry between Rob and Camille is palpable. With a sleek black suit on, Rob looks seductive and romantic in the Dior ad as he fiercely and passionately locks lips with Camille, who understandably seems to be swooning.
Dior definitely made a sexy match with these two. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Ellie, like every 1D love interest before her, is learning that the Directioners can be pretty protective of their boys. But is she actually willing to put up with all the criticism for a shot at love with Niall?
After a report came out claiming that One Directionsinger Niall Horanmade out with Ellie Gouldingat the V Festival in England on Aug. 18, fans have been more than a little nasty towards her. But the “Lights” singer seems to be suggesting that all the hate could be worth it!
Ellie Goulding: Trying To Keep Her Niall Horan Relationship Private?
In a new interview Ellie, 26, revealed that she has received a considerable amount of hate from Directioners on Twitter for smooching Niall, 19. “Oh God, I knew this was coming,” she told The Mirror.
And though Ellie didn’t confirm or deny a romance with Niall, the way she talked seemed to suggest that it’s at least a possibility. “I won’t ever talk about my love life anymore because it’s always then gone wrong when I have in the past,” Ellie said — so at least she consider Niall part of her “love life”!
“But I will say this,” Ellie added, “I’ve definitely had some interesting tweets since the story came out.”
Niall Horan After Ellie Goulding Kiss: ‘She’s Still Out There!’
Niall has also recently been quoted talking about the possible fling, and he has been just as enigmatic! “She has a boyfriend,” Niall told Us Weekly, “But she’s still out there!”
Here’s the thing though — Ellie reportedly broke up with her latest boyfriend, Jeremy Irvine, in July, so what was Niall talking about? Was he just playing coy?
Something tells us we haven’t seen the last of Ellie and Niall. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Now that the cast of ‘Glee’ has begun filming the tribute episode to Cory Monteith, emotions are running even higher. And when it comes to Lea, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she still cries every day over the tragic loss.
Lea Michele Remains Emotional Over Cory Monteith’s Death
Fans are still drying their eyes after Lea’s gut-wrenching speech at the Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 11, so just imagine how she is feeling!
A source close to Lea tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she is still suffering, but looked at her TCA appearance as just another hurdle to leap on the way to getting better. “She saw her speech on the Teen Choice Awards as one more step to recovery,” the source explains. “She will never forget things obviously with Cory but she is making it her mission to show a strong and brave face as things continue. She doesn’t want people to feel bad for her forever, but she appreciates it.”
It seems that getting out — especially to work on the set of Glee – is helping her cope, but the source says Lea still has moments where she is overcome by Cory’s death. ”She has been around so many friends and cast members that its been easier to adapt as the days have gone on. But she still has one good cry per day,” says the insider.
Lea Michele: Honoring Cory Monteith On ‘Glee’
But after shedding some tears, Lea is able to continue to move forward and make more indelible moments on Glee – just how Cory would have wanted, the source says: “The great thing that she loves right now is that she is working on the show she loves with the legacy of Cory on the line, as he was and is the love of her life. “
The emotion Lea is showing is clearly real, raw and needed. We only hope that she heals just a bit more each and every day. And with the help of her friends and fans, we know that will happen!
So HollywoodLifers, how strong do you think Lea Michele is? Sound off below!
Aww! The young lovers are clearly still on cloud nine after getting engaged last weekend on Aug. 18 — just five days later the cute couple traded romantic messages with each other on Twitter.
Zayn Malikusually plays it cool, but even he can’t control his happiness and excitement over getting engaged to Perrie Edwards. And on Aug. 23, Perrie proved that she is just as excited — and romantic — as her fiance.
Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards’ Romantic Tweets
After gushing about how happy he was during an interview on the Today show, Zayn took to Twitter to continue the love fest. The sexy One Directionstar tweeted out:
Never been more happy in my life ! Thank you to everyone that has been so lovely about my engagement to my beautiful fiancé ! Big love z X
It didn’t take long for Perrie to notice. Just three minutes later she responded to his tweet, writing, “best thing ever <3.”
And if that wasn’t cute enough, the 20-year-old singer then took to her band’s Twitter page and raved, “Iv also never felt so happy! :) Thank you everyone for being so kind and supportive! Im a lucky girl! xD I Love you all! Perrie <3.” Aww!
Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards: Happy & Deeply In Love
We just can’t get enough of this adorable couple! Critics may claim that they’re too young to be tying the knot, but even they have to admit that Zayn and Perrie seem completely in love with each other.
Zayn is so lovely. You know things are good when you can't wait to see the other person. It's a sense of friendship. The main thing I looked for is if he's fun to be around, if I can have a laugh with him.
This is a star-studded marriage that we’re definitely getting behind — we could read a Twitter conversation between these two forever!
After an Aug. 23 report claimed that Khloe and Lamar’s marital struggles were being caused not by Lamar’s battle with infidelity, but his battle with drug abuse, a source close to the couple tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that it doesn’t matter what the issue is — Khloe is going to stand behind her husband through it all.
Khloe Kardashianand Lamar Odom’srelationship problems may be even more serious than we thought. A new report claims that the NBA husband’s two-year-long struggle with drugs is the thing that is actually tearing them apart. And though a source close to the couple confirms that claim to HollywoodLife.comexclusively, he also strongly states that NOTHING is going to break them up.
Khloe Kardashian Supporting Lamar Odom Through Drug Addiction
Even though Lamar is in a dark place right now, and is reportedly refusing the help of Khloe and his loved ones, the source says that she “WILL NOT leave him.”
“Khloe has his back,” the source says, insisting that even as Lamar struggles to reject drugs and stay clean Khloe is behind him every step of the way.
“She’s a good woman, and he knows that she’s the best thing he has in his life,” the source continues. “Without Khloe he’s finished! That’s the honest truth. They will work through this.”
Khloe Kardashian Wants Lamar Odom To Fight For Their Marriage
Lamar was reportedly kicked out of the house after Khloe and the family unsuccessfully tried to stage an intervention, according to TMZ.
But making him temporarily move out seems to be more of a last-ditch effort by Khloe to shake him and make him realize he needs to get clean. Even though she isn’t going anywhere, as our source says, she needs to make strong gestures to get through to her struggling husband.
Such as taking off her wedding ring. The reality star was also spotted out with a bare ring finger on Aug. 23, and another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that it was all a ploy to send a message to Lamar. “She knew she would be getting photographed on her way out and she wanted it to happen so she could give Lamar a wake up call,” the source revealed.
“They are having trouble, but she wants him to fight for her trust and love.”
We hope he can, for the sake of his health and the health of his marriage. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know.

Is Rob the sweetest guy ever?! Instead of spending the day relaxing by the pool after working 24/7 on his new movie, the thoughtful actor decided to surprise a group of kids at a local hospital! Watch the amazing video below!
Robert Pattinson has been filming scenes for his new movieMap To The Stars non-stop. But rather than take a much needed break on his day off on Aug. 16, the Twilight stud decided to spend his day making kids smile at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Robert Pattinson Pays A Visit To Los Angeles Children’s Hospital
Rob decided to spend his day off visiting teen patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and believe it or not he was the one who was nervous!
“Robert was so nervous about meeting the kids — he didn’t want to let them down — which is a testament to how humble he is,” Child Life Specialist Ana Vega told E!.
Despite his nerves, Rob definitely didn’t disappoint. “He was incredibly gracious and kind,” Ana added. “He will probably never fully understand what a huge lift he gave to these kids today, and how it will positively impact them over the long term.”
Robert Pattinson Gives Back
Rob also made a point to visit two patients fighting cystic fibrosis who were unable to leave their rooms.
Lyndsay Hutchinson, the hospital’s Public Information Officer said, “We couldn’t help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck that she couldn’t speak. You could tell it meant the world to her — she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear. The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends.”
Seeing Rob so humbly give back is amazing. He’s busy filming Maps to the Stars, but he obviously also knows that his presence can make an ailing child’s day, and it’s great to see that his priorities are in order. He’s definitely using his fame for the right reasons.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, is Rob the sweetest person ever? Watch the video below and let us know!

What a tragedy! One of the most beautiful singers in history revealed on Aug. 23 that she is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, and as a result will never be able to use her amazing singing voice again.
Linda Ronstadt, 67, will always be remembered as the unbelievably talented pop singer who crooned hits like “Hurt So Bad” and “You’re No Good,” but unfortunately, her singing days are over due to a debilitating disease.
Linda Ronstadt: Parkinson’s Disease Stole My Voice
The songstress revealed on Aug. 23 that she was suffering from Parkinson’s disease in an interview with AARP magazine. Linda said that she had just been diagnosed eight months ago, but had been experiencing symptoms for nearly eight years.
She and her doctors had been attributing her ailments to a tick bite, until she was finally properly diagnosed earlier this year.
And those ailments — hand tremors and difficulty controlling muscles — have made it nearly impossible for her to sing. “No one can sing with Parkinson’s disease,” she sadly stated in the interview, “No matter how hard you try.”
Linda, who gave the interview in anticipation of the release of her upcoming memoir “Simple Dreams,” also disclosed that she now uses poles when walking on uneven ground and that she also travels with a wheelchair.
Linda Ronstadt: A Singer Like No Other
As a singer whose octaves spanned all the way from contralto to soprano, Linda owned the ’70s and ’80s, cranking out hit after hit like “Just One Look,” “Blue Bayou” and “Poor Poor Pitiful Me.” Over the course of her career she won 11 Grammys.
It is just so tragic to see Linda’s remarkable talent robbed from her. Singing was her life, and she no longer has that. We’re playing “Hurt So Bad” on repeat in your honor, Linda.
The Famous Jett Jackson star was only 29 when he died after committing suicide. His family remembered him on Aug. 23 at the Paramount lot in Hollywood, where Rizzoli & Isles taped.
The private service lasted almost three hours and had hundreds of guests, according to TMZ. Rizzoli & Isles co-star Angie Harmon was one of the guests to speak, and she reportedly broke down in tears during her short eulogy. “It was really hard to hear her because she was in tears,” a funeral attendee told E!.
Jordan Bridges, also from Rizzoli & Isles, spoke as well, reportedly recounting his deep bond with Lee and emphasizing how much he will be missed.
The ceremony also included practices from Ifa, a West African religion that Lee practiced. Dancers performed in all white as Lee’s mother, Velma Love, blessed the ground behind them. Additionally, the family requested any donations be made to Young Storytellers Foundation, to raise awareness of the arts for underprivileged kids.
Lee Thompson: Friends Remember The ‘Sweet, Intelligent Man’
Rizzoli & Isles creator Janet Tomaro was among the guests. She took to Twitter after the shocking death, tweeting, “We are all without the words to truly express our collective grief and profound sadness at the loss of such a sweet, bright light.”
Additionally, TNT released the following statement:
Everyone at Rizzoli & Isles is devastated by the news of the passing of Lee Thompson Young. We are beyond heartbroken at the loss of this sweet, gentle, good-hearted, intelligent man. He was truly a member of our family. Lee will be cherished and remembered by all who knew and loved him, both on and offscreen, for his positive energy, infectious smile and soulful grace. We send our deepest condolences and thoughts to his family, to his friends and, most especially, to his beloved mother.
Disney Channel, which he starred on as Jett Jackson from 1998 to 2001, also released a statement to HollywoodLife.com, saying “Nothing any of us can say will adequately express our sadness over Lee's untimely passing — our thoughts are with his loved ones and the many fans of his work.”

The ‘Heroes’ actress is partnering with Microsoft 365 to share her organizational wisdom! The busy mom manages to keep all her schedules together — and tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about how she streamlines her routine!
Ali Larter is one busy mom! Juggling her acting career, cookbook writing, and family life with her husband and her son Theodore, 2, Ali has picked up quite a few tips to staying organized. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.com, the mom-on-the-go shares her tips for staying balanced and saving time so you can spend those special extra moments with your family!
Ali Larter & Microsoft 365 Share Organization Tips For Moms
It’s the busiest time of year for moms — sending kids back to school takes a lot of effort and planning! Tips for moms organizing schedules for kids going back to school:
It’s about staying balanced. For me it’s like, if I’m eating dinner and my son’s screaming and my husband needs this and the dogs are barking sometimes It’s about just giving up. Just going like, ‘you know what? Dinner’s not getting made tonight, we’re ordering in a pizza!’ and just sitting with your kid. And that’s what I try to remind myself of. I think that we all take on too much, in this modern world we’re trying to be everything.
Sometimes you need to just throw your arms up in the air and say, ‘you know what? This is just not going to happen,’ or cancel your plans or whatever it is and just try to be there for your kids. That’s something that I’m not succeeding at, but trying really hard to.
So how does she stay organized in the most stressful situations? Ali has partnered with Microsoft’s Office 365 to keep all her schedules, emails, lists, and contacts in one place. Technology can actually help moms make better use of their time! Ali tells us that the software “takes a minute to learn it, but once you do, it saves so much time.” She explains:
I love efficiency. Especially being a new mom, the days are busy as ever. I’m balancing my career and being a mom and being a wife and all these things, so staying organized is the most important part. I used to have notes just around everywhere, and now I use OneNote so if you pop online and you’r e surfing and I find recipes, I can clip it to the cloud and then access that from anywhere, from any device, so I can use it on my phone when I’m at the grocery store when I need my to-do list or my ingredients [list].
Ali Larter: Centering Family Time Around Food
Ali’s new cookbook, Kitchen Revelry, was one of the first things she made with her new tech-skills!
When I created my book, [out in September] I didn’t even know how to open Word and then this is such a good partnership because I am totally technologically backwards and once I learned how to use it, I wrote my whole thing on it. So it’s over 100 recipes and I’d be cooking and you know my hands in the sauce and dealing with my kid and resume reading and pop right back on where I left off in Word. It’s things that like that were really helpful to me.
Ali is able to center family time around meals, so that she can keep her son and active part of what’s going on in the kitchen!
I also cook and have dinner with my son at least 3 times a week. In the mornings on the weekends I love to cook together. That’s a really fun thing to do. Right now we’ve been making greek yogurt and strawberry balsamic popsicles — I’m going to post that recipe on my blog. I love cooking things with him and he has his own kitchen — he’s into my stuff, he wants my big pans and stuff. But he’s got his little apron and it’s just about introducing him to all the foods I eat and if he doesn’t like something, he doesn’t have to eat it, but he has to try it. And that’s kind of all that goes in my house.
Keeping kids involved in the cooking process makes them more likely to try new foods — and appreciate the hard work that goes into meal time!
