Tara Reid engaged, then married inside of two hours in Greece

Tara Reid, now married, showed off her engagement ring on TwitterTara Reid got engaged and then married to Zack Kehayov -- all in less than two hours Saturday, while on vacation in Greece.

Reid, who started her vacation in Greece on Aug. 6, announced the rapid-fire nuptial news via Twitter. She sent out a picture of the ring, above, on Monday.

There was initially confusion about the identity of the groom, with Reid's rep mistakenly saying the "American Pie" actress had married Danish businessman Michael Lillelund, a guy she'd broken up with in February after three months of dating.

"If she has married, then she hasn't married me, that's for sure," Lillelund told Starlounge. "If Tara has married, then I'll be the first to congratulate her."

The actress, who recently wrapped work on "American Reunion" previously was engaged to Internet entrepreneur Michael Axtmann but called off the wedding in April 2010.

"Just got married in greece I love being a wife!," Reid gushed Saturday -- which is good news, because at the rate this relationship is going, the honeymoon is almost definitely over by now.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is engaged to Catriona McGinn

Catriona McGinn and Mark-Paul Gosselaar are engaged

Mark-Paul Gosselaar of "Franklin & Bash" is engaged to Catriona McGinn, having popped the question last week and sealed the deal with a big ol' rock.

The ring, with a 3-carat center stone and total of 5 carats in diamonds, was created by Neil Lane with the actor's input -- working off a picture provided by the bride-to-be, said People, which first reported the engagement.

Gosselaar and McGinn, an ad exec who coincidentally looks a like a supermodel, have reportedly been making the red-carpet rounds for a few months now.

"She's absolutely gorgeous, she's stunning, and she takes my breath away," Gosselaar, 37, told Us Weekly last weekend. "Catriona's great with my kids. My kids absolutely adore her."

The actor has two children, Michael, 7, and Ava, 5, with Lisa Ann Russell, whom he met in 1993 when she was on an episode of his series "Saved by the Bell" and married in 1996. They separated in June 2010, with the divorce final at the end of May. 

In addition to "Bell" and the just-renewed "Bash," Gosselaar's resume includes "Saved by the Bell: The College Years." Perhaps McGinn said yes because of his work in "NYPD Blue"?

"Thrilled to share some happy news with you ...," she wrote, "I'm engaged!"

Lake has two sons from her previous marriage to artist Rob Sussman, whom she divorced in 2005. Milo, 14, and 10-year-old Owen both approve of Mom's new guy, whom she met through her best friend.

"My little men love him," she told People in May. "My little one said the other day, 'Are you gonna marry him? I want you to marry him.'"

Evans, a jewelry designer, proposed to Lake on a recent vacation to Barcelona and Ibiza, a Lake pal told the Ministry.

The actress and TV host will return to the small screen with "The Ricki Lake Show," a syndicated chatfest next fall. Congrats to the whole clan.

Kristin Cavallari, Jay Cutler end their engagement

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler break up

Kristin Cavallari and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler have called off their engagement, multiple sources said Sunday and Monday.

OK, one source told it more specifically: "She got dumped," People heard. "She's absolutely devastated. She can't believe this is happening."

Meanwhile, in Cutler's circles, folks couldn't believe the end of the NFL lockout was happening. But that's another story.

The breakup news first came via Access Hollywood, which also reported the dumpage angle. The 24-year-old TV personality known for "The Hills" and "Laguna Beach" was celebrating her engagement a week ago with a party, shortly after the couple's gift registries went public.

Then Saturday night, People said, Cavallari was seen out at a club in L.A. sans ring, telling the likes of Nicky Hilton and Alessandra Ambrosio that it was all over with the 28-year-old jock.

Cavallari and Cutler had been dating since last fall, and got engaged in April.

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris: Wedding is off [Poll]

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris

This post has been updated and corrected. See the notes below for details.

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris have reportedly called off their wedding, set for this Saturday, after the 25-year-old playmate packed her stuff and moved out in the wake of a weekend fight with her 85-year-old fiance.

"The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart," Hefner tweeted around noon, confirming the news.

Awkwardly, while others might simply have to cancel the wedding photographer, Harris appears in a "Here comes the bride" photo spread in the July issue of Playboy, accompanied by an article on why she and Hef "will live happily after."

Multiple sources inside the Playboy Mansion confirmed the split Tuesday morning, according to TMZ. More than 300 guests had been invited to the ceremony, People said.

Hefner and Harris got engaged on Christmas Eve, almost a year after he'd asked girlfriends No. 2 and No. 3, twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon, to move out of the mansion so he could get more serious with Harris.

The Shannon twins, initially moved from the mansion to the Playboy House, were asked to leave the property completely in May. Seems Hef didn't like his ex-girlfriends bringing their new boyfriends over to play.

[Updated, 2:45 p.m. June 14: This post has been updated to include Hefner's confirmation that the wedding was nixed, which came shortly after the post was written but before it was published. The headline was changed to reflect that certainty.]

[For the record, 2:30 p.m. June 16:  This post originally placed Harris' photo spread in the "current" issue of Playboy. Cover girl Harris is featured in the upcoming July issue.]

Nikki Reed and singer Paul McDonald are engaged

Nikki Reed is engaged to Paul McDonald

Nikki Reed is engaged to Paul McDonald, the "American Idol" singer known for his raspy voice and his embroidered floral suits.

"He's the one," the 23-year-old "Twilight" star told E! News on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet Sunday night, flashing a diamond ring. "He's the one."

An E! source confirmed the engagement; the two already live together, People reported in May.

"I love him and I don't care," Reed said at an early birthday party, dismissing the idea that their relationship was moving too fast. "I've never met anyone like him," she told People. "I've never met anyone who has such a good solid heart and comes from such a good solid family and is just a genuine person."

McDonald, 26, made it to eighth place on the most recent season of "Idol," with the title eventually going to 17-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery.

After he was voted off in April, the Grand Magnolias singer spilled the news about his relationship with Reed, saying at a news conference that she was "pumped" he'd been nixed. "She said, 'Dude, you finally get to do your thing and be yourself and be the artist you are.' She is happy about the whole situation. She has been nothing but cool to me."

Cool enough that he wants to keep her around for the long haul, apparently. He's also been inspired to write songs about his lady love, who told E!, "He says he's going to release a Nikki Reed EP."

Question we have to ask: Will Paul get married wearing that white suit with the red roses on it? We'd love it if he did.

Sims, 38, is engaged to Hollywood producer Scott Stuber, according to several reports. She said "yes" to the all-important question on the weekend of May 20.

The Ministry announced earlier this month that Stuber, along with actress Olivia Wilde, will be honored at the annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball for his contributions to helping the homeless.

Reggie Bush reportedly 'cut up' over ex Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kris Humphries (or so someone says)

Kim Kardashian's ex Reggie Bush Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush is reportedly down and out over the news of Kardashian's engagement to NBA player Kris Humphries.

The New Orleans Saints running back backed out from the Wednesday launch party for the Gumball Rally 3000 in London, Life & Style reported.

"We heard Kim got engaged, so we think that's why [Reggie] didn't turn up," a party-goer overheard Bush's teammate Cody Green tell a friend at the party. "He must be pretty cut up. He sounded like he was, and that was why he didn't make it down." (Third-hand information alert!)

Kardashian and Bush began dating in 2007 and were together for two years but broke up because of lifestyle conflicts, with the reality-TV starlet constantly being tracked by papz and the football player traveling for games and living in New Orleans. Their issues were chronicled on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." The pair reunited briefly in 2010 before ending the relationship for good soon after -- despite engagement rumors.  

This will be Kardashian's second marriage -- her secret 2000 nuptials to music producer Damon Thomas ended in 2003 with allegations of abuse being slung against Thomas. Kardashian shot to fame in 2007 when a sex tape of her and singer Ray J surfaced. She's since been able to recover from the onslaught of criticism, and after her relationship with Bush ended, she began dating Humphries in December 2010. He popped the question six months later.

Kim Kardashian engaged to Kris Humphries In the upcoming season of her reality show, Kardashian and sister Khloe Kardashian (Mrs. Lamar Odom) are fighting because the family doesn't want to get attached to another one of the middle Kardashian's beaus. But now, Kardashian's younger sister is singing a different tune, already planning the upcoming nuptials.

"It's going to be royal wedding number two," Khloe Kardashian told E! "I could only imagine Kim having the hugest wedding."

The rest of the family has embraced Humphries too, though the two families haven't formally met yet.

"Kris is a great guy, and I really like him," Kardashian's step-dad Bruce Jenner told Life & Style. "He's just different for Kim. He's just a solid guy from Minnesota. There doesn't seem to be too much drama with him. I think he's a good match for her."

"He gets along with every single one of us, and that is not easy to do," Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, told People. "When you date one of us, you date all of us. We're all going out with Kris."

"I haven't seen her this peaceful and content and over the moon, ever! That makes me happy. When your kids are happy, you're happy," she added.

Tough cookies, Damon, Ray J and Reggie.

Kardashian, who was spotted sporting her 20.5-carat engagement ring at LAX on Thursday, is vacationing in Monaco to watch the Formula 1 Grand Prix with Humphries and his family. Perhaps she's picking up a few royal-wedding tips from Princess Grace's home along the way.

Do you think Bush is devastated over Kardashian's engagement? Is Humphries the right fit for her? Tell us in comments.

How Kim Kardashian's 20.5-carat engagement ring from Kris Humphries compares with other sparklers [Poll]

Kim Kardashian's 20.5 carat engagement ring from Kris Humphries Kim Kardashian's engagement ring from Kris Humphries could be stealing the reality TV starlet's spotlight.

The 20.5-carat custom-designed piece made a public appearance on Kardashian's finger when she and Humphries were catching an international flight from LAX on Wednesday, Us Weekly reported.

The platinum ring features a 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone placed between two 2-carat trapezoids. Humphries had the ring designed after a replica of a ring Kardashian had coveted at a young age, according to People. And no, it wasn't a ring pop, but it might as well have been.

"In high school, I went to Macy's and bought this fake ring, my 'perfect' ring, and this is almost the exact same,” she told the magazine. Friend and jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz turned that "perfect ring" into the dazzler she's sporting now.

"I just knew I wanted it to be big!" Kardashian said. "It's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen."

The ring's estimated worth is at least $1 million, but others appraise it at double that price.

So, how heavy is that bad boy? Roughly 4 ounces, the New York Daily News reported, comparing the stud to a deck of cards on your finger. Talk about a full wrist workout...

But Kardashian's ring isn't the only lavish looker out there. Here are a few other swoon-worthy sparklers, some of which lasted longer than the couples:

Kim Kardashian's engagement ring Hilary Duff's ring from hockey player Mike Comrie: 14 carats, $1 million

Khloé Kardashian's ring from Lakers star Lamar Odom: $850,000

Beyonce's ring from mogul Jay-Z: 18 carats, $5 million

Carrie Underwood's ring from hockey player Mike Fisher: 12 carats, $800,000

Christina Aguilera's ring from Jordan Bratman: 20 carats, $54,000

Jessica Simpson's ring from NFL player Eric Johnson: 8 carats, $100,000 

Paris Hilton's rings from billionaire Paris Latsis: 24 carats, $5 million, and 15 carats, $2.1 million

Jennifer Lopez's ring from Ben Affleck: 6 carats, $1.2 million.

Kate Middleton's ring from Prince William: 18 carats, $265,000

Perhaps marrying an athlete, actor or royalty is the way to go?

Kim Kardashian engaged to NBA star Kris Humphries; Kardashian family reacts

Kim Kardashian engaged to Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian
is engaged to Kris Humphries after six months of dating and quite a bit of PDA. Exciting as the news is, the real shocker is that the reality star kept her megawatt engagement ring hidden for a week.

The New Jersey Nets star asked the reality TV gal to marry him by surprising her at her Beverly Hills home on May 18, People reports. He covered her bedroom with rose petals spelling out "Will you marry Me?" sealing the deal with a custom-made 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz ring. (A stunner that rivals the size of her famed backside.)

Kim Kardashian engaged to Kris HumphriesHumphries was in cahoots with Kardashian's mom/manager Kris Jenner, who threw the couple an intimate celebration at home after the proposal.

"I didn't expect this at all," Kardashian told the mag. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now."

But Kardashian, 30, and Humphries, 26, seemed to be priming fans for a big announcement for weeks, exchanging lovey dovey messages on Twitter and telling the media how great their families were getting along. They were recently spotted shopping for engagement rings and she was photographed frequently at his basketball games. E! also announced that he'd be featured on the next season on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

In January, she met his parents after only a few months of dating and he seemed to be the reason the curvy California girl decided to extend her stay in the Big Apple after wrapping "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." All along the way, she reiterated how she didn't like dating, wanted to settle down and was jealous that her sisters Khloe and Kourtney had already gotten hitched or started families. So an engagement almost seemed imminent.

"OMGGGGGGG!!!!!!!! It's true! I couldn't be happier!" Kardashian wrote on her blog, also confirming the annoucement on Twitter. "Thank you guys for all of the sweet messages!!!
