Bachelor in Paradise Recap: Most Awkward Engagement Ever!

If you’re a fan of the Bachelor franchise, you likely read months ago about Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon getting engaged.

But did the much-discussed and celebrated proposal live up the hype? To many articles written about it? To the hopes and dreams of everyone who has followed the adventures of these reality stars?

We found out on Monday evening.

With Ashley’s ex, Kevin Wendt, standing right there on the beach, Haibon got down on one knee and popped the pressing question to his girlfriend, just as previously advertised and anticipated.

“Isn’t it crazy, three years ago we met right at this spot on this very beach. I love you so much… You’ve always been there for me,” Jared said, as Ashley started crying.

“You’re everything to me,” he added.

A diamond ring by jeweler Neil Lane in hand, Haibon then got to the crux of his romantic point.

“You’d make me the happiest man alive if I got the opportunity to spend the rest of my life with you. So, Ashley, will you marry me?”

“Yes!” she screamed, referring the stunning sparkler as “perfect,” probably because it was in her contract to do so, and adding:

“You’re my soulmate and I love you.”

Ashley and Jared first met on Bachelor in Paradise Season 2.

They dated for a little while and Ashley was convinced early on that Jared was The One — but it took him a little bit longer to arrive at the same conclusion.

After Jared dissed her on Season 3 of this same show, the stars remained friends until Haibon got jealous that Iaconetti had found a new lover and finally decided to make his ultimate move.

The thing is… Kevin watched the entire proposal called down and called it a “slap in the face” after their breakup in March.

Indeed, he and Ashley for several months earlier after they connected on Bachelor Winter Games in 2017.

The Canadian firefighter evn accused Ashley of cheating on him with Jared on the premiere episode of Bachelor in Paradise this season.

“That really hurt me,” he said at the time. 

Later on Monday night, while talking to Jordan, Kevin seemingly alluded to Ashley’s virginity.

Was he not only an ex-boyfriend, but the first person to ever go to bed with Iaconetti?

“I am a very monumental part of her dating life, let’s just put it that way,” he said on Bachelor in Paradise. “I’m a big part of her life.”

We wrote three years ago about this possibility, putting it out there online that Wendt may very well have put it to Iaconetti.

But that was then and this is now and the future is the future. It’s all about Jared and Ashley going forward, with fans wondering when the two will get married.

“We wish we could do it on TV, but, you know, we haven’t really had the offer, so we’re doing it on our own right now,” Ashley told Entertainment Tonight of wedding planning last month, adding:

“It’s more stressful than we thought.”

“It’s a little surreal,” Haibon added.

It’s also very exciting!

Congratulations, you crazy and in love kids!

Selena Gomez: Justin and Hailey’s Engagement Is Messing With My Head!

Now that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged, many diehard Selenators are hoping that Selena Gomez can finally be free of him once and for all.

Unfortunately, a report says that Selena feels like she’s unable to move forward with a new relationship or delete old photos from her time with the Biebs.

It sounds like Justin’s engagement is messing with her head.

A source tells HollywoodLife that Selena is struggling to date in the face of Justin’s engagement.

“Selena feels like right now dating is not in the cards,” the insider reveals.

That’s interesting — there had been speculation that Justin was dating Hailey to get revenge on Selena for Selena’s own rebound.

Maybe the Caleb Stevens thing was never as big as some people believed.

“She thinks that it is hard to find someone because of her celebrity,” the source explains. “And its hard to meet people organically.”

There is, unfortunately, more to it.

“Plus she always thinks how it will be perceived to be with someone in the outside world,” the insider admits.

Dating someone is one thing. Publicly dating means inviting the scrutiny of millions.

The source explains: “She hates being defined by the people she doesn’t know on who she dates or doesn’t date.”

We can absolutely understand that.

Additionally, Selena apparently resents the amount of speculation that follows her every association.

“She can’t hang out with anyone without it turning into something,” the insider laments.

“And,” the source continues. “She knows it scares away the chance of love.”

That sounds so grim!

It’s a real obstacle, the insider explains, “because there are so many more layers to break through for any suitors that might want to be with her.”

Selena also worries that her fame and personal history drives away the sorts of men she would most like to be with.

“People don’t want to be with her,” the source fears. “Because it comes with so much more baggage.”

That is so unfair!

“She is trying to figure that out for herself,” the insider affirms. “And once she does she will be more prone to start dating and putting herself out there.”

That is great to hear.

“Its a process she wouldn’t like to deal with,” the source admits. “But she knows that it is her life and she has to manage it appropriately.”

Another insider tells HollywoodLife that Selena can’t delete her Bieber pics.

“Selena’s friends,” the source confesses. “Caught her looking at old selfies of her and Justin on her phone.”

As the Nick Joseph meme says, oh no baby what is you doing?

“Selena says she has tried to delete a lot of their pics,” the insider reveals.

“But,” the source continues. “She just can’t bring herself to get rid of all of them.”

“The pics are sweet memories,” the insider explains. “And Selena likes to look at them once in a while.”

That’s normal. And nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

The source says: “Seeing pics of Justin and her smiling, happy together, remind Selena of the good times she had with Justin.”

“She gets emotional when looking at them,” the insider spills. “And does not want to get rid of them.”

This apparently remains the case “even though he is preparing to marry someone else.”

Look, nobody has an easy time letting go of the good times in their past, even if they’ve become bittersweet.

But it is nothing short of tragic that one of the most talented, beautiful stars on the planet is being cock-blocked by her own history.

We hope that she is able to overcome this hurdle soon.

Selena deserves all of the happiness in the world.

And Justin has never let his dating history or fame hold him back. Not even a little.


Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Spark Engagement Rumors. Here’s Why.

For Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, first came love… and then came a baby in a baby carriage.

The couple skipped right past the second part of this classic rhyme, but a new report indicates that they may go back and rectify this omission.

Indeed, there may soon be a marriage!

With Kylie and Travis seemingly doing better than ever, E! News says the famous couple was spotted shopping for over an hour at Polacheck’s Jewelers in Calabasas, California following the former’s 21st birthday celebration over the weekend.

Might Scott have been treating his baby mama to a new necklace, pair of earrings or possibly even a broach?


But might the stars also have been looking for an engagement ring?!?

A witness tells E! News that Jenner “was glowing and looked beautiful” during the pair’s visit to this establishment and that the duo made no effort to hide from the other shoppers in the store.

The source adds that Scott and his prettier half purchased “a couple items” before leaving. 

There’s been chatter for several weeks that Scott and Jenner may get engaged.

It would be the next logical step, right?

The rapper and the Instagram model have been together for well over a year and are parents to a daughter nameed Stormi Webster.

However, Kourtney Kardashian has three kids with Scott Disick and those two have never exchanged vows.

Khloe Kardashian has a child with that awful basketball player, Tristan Thompson, and she remains legally single as well.

The Kardashians and Jenners are not known for settling down permanently with the men that sire their kids.

There was plenty of talk about Scott proposing to Kylie right around the time she turned 21, which happened on August 10 of this year.

So far, though… nothing. Silence. The same relationship status as always.

“Kylie and Travis have definitely discussed getting married and she has expressed what type of ring she would want Travis to buy her. It would definitely be over the top,” another source tells E! News, adding:

“They are not engaged right now but have talked about it, and it’s only a matter of time.”

Is it, though?

As we documented above, it’s not as if Kylie’s sisters have set a great marital example for her.

It’s also not as if Kylie is lacking for expensive gifts from her man.

To celebrate Jenner’s milestone birthday over the weekend, Scott showered her with flowers and a special present: a classic Rolls Royce. It cost well into the six figures, sources have said.

“Happy bday wifey I love u mommy u my heart rib toes and all,” Travis wrote in a birthday message to Kylie last Friday, concluding:

“May GOD continue to bless u and ur spirit. This mark in ur life is the start to more greatness.”

How sweet, right?

Still, all this said, we’re gonna go ahead and take a guess and say the following:

Kylie and Travis will never get married.


Amy Roloff and Chris Marek Ignite Engagement Rumors with Ring Photo!

A couple of weeks ago, Amy Roloff took Chris Marek to visit her home state of Michigan. It was a major step in their relationship … and many saw it as a prelude to an engagement.

Well, Amy shared a new photo of her and Chris in a group picture.

And fans could not help zeroing in on the very conspicuous ring on her finger. Take a look!

Amy took to Instagram to share a group photo in which she and boyfriend Chris took center stage.

“Celebrating this awesome guy -Chris – birthday,” Amy wrote.

She added that she was celebrating “with Randy, Alicia, Art, and Lisa.”

“Friendship is one of the best gifts,” Amy added. “Happy Birthday Chris!”

Here is the pic:

We’ve included a closer look at her ring — both rings, actually — below.

Fans noticed right away, and could not resist commenting.

“Are you engaged?” Asked one fan. “I noticed the ring”

Another fan piped up: “I notice a ring on your finger!!!”

While one ring is on her right ring finger and the other is on her left pinky, clearly, fans have picked up on how close Amy and Chris have become.

One fan was not going to let the others kid themselves, and wrote: “Wrong hand!”

There were also, of course, the usual comments.

Plenty of nice birthday messages for Chris. Plenty of pleasant compliments for Amy.

There were also the unfortunately standard accustaions that Chris is dating her for the wrong reasons.


Time after time, fans accuse Chris of dating Amy for the wrong reasons.

Some believe that it’s all part of a sinister plot to get his hands on her money and on her piece of Roloff Farms.

Others believe that he’s chasing fame, since she’s a reality star.

Despite these suspicions, Chris appears to be nothing but nice and loving.

In contrast, Amy’s ex Matt Roloff suggested that she’s kind of dumb. Notably, many of the viewers who are wary of Chris think that Amy should get back with Matt.

We would like to believe that the folks who can’t trust Chris are really just sentimental about Amy and Matt’s marriage.

Unfortunately, it seems more likely that some people are — perhaps even on a subconscious level — suspicious of any man of average height who is dating a little person.

While little people are sometimes pursued by “chasers” who fetishize them, Chris just seems to be a loving boyfriend who loves Amy enough to stay with her despite harassment from fans.

Even though it doesn’t look like either of Amy’s rings are an engagement ring, it’s great that they’re spending so much pleasant time together.

Perhaps these two will get engaged soon, but of course it’s very healthy for them to take their time. Especially considering how complicated Amy’s life can be at times.

We hope that Chris had a wonderful birthday!


Kylie Jenner: Birthday Complicated by Engagement, Second Pregnancy?!

Kylie Jenner turned 21 on Friday, August 10.

She celebrated with her family until a few hours into the morning. Good for her.

She's a mom and a makeup mogul. It's great that she also has time to party.

But she might be a lot busier, and soon. Because it's reported that Kylie is pregnant and engaged to Travis Scott.

That would be a lot harder to believe without confirmation if she hadn't waited until after Stormi was born to tell the world that she was expecting.

A second baby and an engagement are both great news, but did these complicate her celebrations over turning 21?

Take a look!

1. Kylie Jenner is 21!!
