Hollywood Dirt: Kim Kardashian’s $2 Million Engagement Ring & Paula Abdul Gets Competitor for Simon Cowell’s Affections Kicked Off Show
OH-EM-GEE!!! KIM KARDASHIAN IS ENGAGED!!!: KIM KARDASHIAN and her baller boyfriend, New Jersey Nets forward KRIS HUMPHRIES, are ENGAGED!!!
It actually happened last Wednesday. Kim walked into the bedroom of her Beverly Hills Home on May 18th, to find Kris waiting on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals: “Will You Marry Me?” After Kim said “Yes!”, Kris slipped a 20.5-carat rock on her finger!!!
The 16.5-carat emerald cut center diamond is flanked by two, 2-carat trapezoids and is valued at two-million bucks!!! If you’re a girl, chances are you’re a little jealous. If you’re a guy, chances are this is what you just heard: blah-blah-blah two-million bucks.
No word from “E!” whether the reality TV cameras were there to record this moment for the new season of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, which premieres June 12th.
If I was a betting man I’d put money on it. I mean, if Kim and Kris were willing to delay news of the engagement to coincide with the People magazine cover story then I’d say chances are pretty good E!’s cameras were there, dontchathink? Well dontcha?
SNAPSHOT: Remember when Kim and PARIS HILTON were BFF’s? Back when Kim had her original face? No? Then check out this pic from 2004 …
SCHWARZENEGGER LOVE CHILD FALLOUT: It’s safe to say ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is not having ‘The Best Week Ever’. And it just got worse.
Now comes word the National Fitness Hall of Fame is considering expelling Arnold from their ‘Hall of Greatness’. Just two months ago, the Hall awarded Schwarzenegger with the ‘Fitness Spokesperson of the Century’ award, but word is he could be stripped of that title, too. I had no idea there was a Fitness Hall of Fame. But then again, look at me. Why would I?
X FACTOR JUDGE SHOWN THE DOOR AND PAULA ADBUL HAD A LOT TO DO WITH IT!!!: CHERYL COLE has been booted from “The X Factor”!!! TMZ says the British singer was dumped as a judge, in part, because producers were concerned her accent was too thick for American viewers to understand, but the even bigger problem was that she didn’t click with fellow judge PAULA ABDUL.
NICOLE SCHERZINGER, who was originally slated to co-host, will take Cheryl’s place at the judges panel alongside Paula, SIMON COWELL and L.A. REID. (–The show debuts in September.)

OPRAH – THE FINAL EPISODE: We didn’t get any special guests, or surprise giveaways on yesterdays last-ever episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. The show simply featured Oprah alone on the stage, sharing wisdom with us and her studio audience …
She signed off by walking amongst the unwashed, huddled masses and offering her e-mail address because she wanted us “to know that what you have to say matters to me,” and pledged to read as many e-mails as possible.
LISTEN: Oprah’s sign off …
