Kim’s Pricey Rock!: Kim Kardashian announced she was engaged to New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries this morning and TMZ has all the details on her extremely expensive sparkler. The Lorraine Schwartz ring, which totals 20.5 carats, is reportedly worth $2 million! The stones – a 16.5 carat emerald cut center stone and two 2-carat trapezoids – are “the highest clarity and color,” according to a source. Kim’s ring reportedly costs more than her Beverly Hills home! Sound off – money well spent or a waste?
New Couple Alert?: Does Bradley Cooper have a new lady in his life? According to People, “The Hangover Part II” star was spotted getting cozy with Olivia Wilde following a screening of his new movie in New York City. The pair was spotted cozying up at a booth at Top of the Standard in the Meatpacking District of NYC – Olivia even reportedly had her hand on Bradley’s leg at one point. Hot new couple or just two stars being affectionate?
More Stripping For The Former Boy Bander!: Former 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons has apparently enjoyed getting half naked in Sin City! According to TMZ, Jeff is extending his run with Chippendales for a few more weeks. Since Jeff decided to join the troupe of tanned and oiled men, the show has reportedly been selling out and breaking box office records. However, fans hoping to see almost all of Jeff might be disappointed, as he won’t drop his “non-banana hammock policy,” as TMZ so eloquently put it.
Lipnicki Can’t Shake Ex!: Former “Jerry Maguire” star Jonathan Lipnicki says hell no to “you complete me.” The actor has reportedly filed a restraining order against a 20-year-old actress named Amber Watson, who he reportedly briefly dated after meeting in an acting class. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, on May 14, Amber came into his room – after the actor’s roommates let her in – and she pinned him to the bed. The actor claimed that Amber “threatened to annihilate me.” A judge has ordered Amber to stay 100 feet away from the former child star. We’re guessing she didn’t have him at “hello.”
