Benji Madden is engaged to his girlfriend Sophie Monk, an Australian actress her rep reports to People.
The rep said, “Benji proposed to Sophie in Australia on Christmas Eve with a Neil Lane diamond ring. They are very excited and enjoying this time with family and friends.”
Um…why did he have to say the name of the ring? Product placement!
Sophie and Benji have only been public with their relationship for about 4 months. Benji’s other brother, Joel Madden, is currently dating Nicole Richie after a public break-up with Hilary Duff.
Both of these Maddens are all sorts of fug. I have no idea how in the hell Benji scored this hot chick? Does homegirl just want a green card? Image Source
Coke eyes anyone? Fell asleep my ass!!!
UPDATE – Here’s a video of Britney counting down. Thrilling.
Justin Timberlake and pizza-faced Cameron Diaz have been denying rumors that their sick relationship is done. Well, they didn’t help matters by spending their New Years apart. Star Magazine reports that Justin was with his family at their home in Tennessee while Cameron was skiing with her family in Colorado.
Justin also spent his Christmas in Tennessee where he told friends at a local club, “Me and Cameron? We’re done.”
He is apparently spending his time with a longtime family friend, Veronica Finn. She’s a local real estate broker in Tennessee. Justin partied with her over the holiday and she apparently stayed at his mother’s house a few nights. Sources claim the two are just friends even though they are very affectionate with each other.
Hopefully this means Justin can get back together with Britney Spears. I really need to see them work out that denim duo outfit they sported a few years ago. That will totally jumpstart my 2007. Oh and seeing Cameron Diaz’s fug face cry into a plate of soggy spaghetti would jumpstart my 2007 too.
John Mayer and Jessica Simpson spent their New Year’s eve making out in front of everyone at the Hudson Hotel in NYC for Christina Aguilera’s party. They apparently spent the entire weekend together in NYC are both are happy that the media hasn’t really caught wind of them. Um…probably because they don’t care?
A source said, “John has been thrilled that they have been tricking the media, but she doesn’t really care. His Christmas present to her was a framed copy of the Us Weekly cover that says ‘Dumped: John ditches Jessica.'”
The couple are still in NYC at some hotel in SoHo. They probably aren’t trying to hide it from the media, they are trying to hide it from Papa Joe! He doesn’t want his main piece cheating on him.
Oprah Winfrey celebrated her New Year in South Africa by opening up the $40 million girls school she paid for. Oprah made a promise to Nelson Mandela six years ago that she would come to South Africa and help the children. The new school will give an education to 150 girls. The school located in Henley-on-Klip is called Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy. How fitting. Tina Turner, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Spike Lee were all in attendance. They each brought a personally inscribed book for the school. Mariah can’t read! They asked her to bring a book and she probably brought her own Tour book with dazzling pictures of her.
Oprah also ruffled a few feathers when she said that she chose to do this in Africa and not the US, because children here don’t give a damn. She said, “I became so frustrated with visiting inner-city schools [in the U.S.]. If you ask the kids what they want or need, they will say an iPod or some sneakers. In South Africa, they don’t ask for money or toys. They ask for uniforms so they can go to school.”
Um…do those girls really need a nail salon and a yoga studio? Because Oprah made sure to include one when she opened the school.
