Kanye Begged Kim to Marry Him on a Jumbotron

Kanye and Kim proposal
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are just soooo unconventional with this whole getting married after childbirth thing, because it’s always best not to rush things when you already have a baby together, right?

In true Kanye fashion, West hired a 50-piece orchestra to serenade her with a Keri Hilson song he’s featured on at AT&T Park in San Francisco while the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” scrolled across the jumbotron. The ring, seen above, is a 15-carat diamond designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who helped his buddy Jay-Z put a ring on Beyonce. (Blake Lively’s rock from Ryan Reynolds too.)  Continue reading “Kanye Begged Kim to Marry Him on a Jumbotron”

Man Proposes To Girlfriend Using Imgur, Reddit and DeviantART

Game of thrones proposal meme ringSome really sweet, really progressive guy (Reddit user name: SirTechnocracy) asked his live-in girlfriend to marry him using an album of handmade memes on Imgur, plus 18 drawings of proposals he commissioned from DeviantART, one for each month they’ve been together.

LadyTechnocracy responded to raised eyebrows over the unconventional (*creative*) method by saying “This is honestly the most romantic thing someone has ever done for me. The advice animals crack me up.”

Awww. The internet used properly, without fetish porn or hateful trolls? You crazy kids give me hope.

Obama Proposes Civilian Assault Weapon Ban and Background Checks For All Firearm Buyers

Obama gun conferenceAfter over a month of depressing post-Sandy Hook gun “solutions” from the NRA, one Piers Morgan deportation petition and a million opinions from every political and non-political corner of the earth, Obama has finally set a plan in motion to combat rampant gun-related homicides in America.

During a press conference on Wednesday morning, Obama proposed legislation that would require criminal background checks for all gun sales and ban assault rifles and armor-piercing bullets to anyone but law enforcement and military officials.

“[Gun violence] has terrible consequence for our society … and if we can only do one thing to stop it, we should all try and do that,” he told a crowd of reporters at the televised event.  Continue reading “Obama Proposes Civilian Assault Weapon Ban and Background Checks For All Firearm Buyers”

Kourtney Kardashian Finally Said ‘Yes’ To Scott Disick?

Looks like the romance of Paris may have gotten to Kourtney Kardashian.

Always unreliable Star Magazine reports that Scott Disick asked his two-time baby mama of over five years to marry him for the billionth time and she said YES.

“We’re all so thrilled they’ve finally decided to get engaged,” Scott’s loudmouth auntie Laurie told the publication. “We’re all so fond of Kourtney, and we wish them a long, happy marriage.”

The ring was purchased in October at Florida’s Levinson Jewelers.

Coming up on E! – the ring, the proposal, and take after take of Kourtney looking surprised on top of the Eiffel Tower.

Kris Humphries On His Knees

The season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on Sunday, September 4, revealed Kris Humphries’ proposal. Typical rose petals and a ring-the size of Saturn. Surprisingly, he’s actually shorter than her when he’s on his knees.

…Though I refuse to believe that she isn’t standing on an incline and wearing five inch heels.

Also check out pictures of Kris and Kim’s wedding. (I wonder if it’s weird for them that he shares a name with her mother?)

Gene Simmons Finally Put A Ring On It

And by “it,” I mean former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed. After 28 years as a couple, two kids, and all the infidelity issues of a white-tailed jackrabbit, Gene Simmons finally decided to get hitched.

Simmons, 62, proposed in Belize. The wedding will take place at Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Kiss frontman is famous for saying things like:

“Marriage? Forget it. It`s not for me.”

The proposal took place in July, but nobody knew the exact answer that Shannon Tweed gave until now…
