Hollywood Dirt – New Photos of Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring + More
KIM KARDASHIAN FLASHES ENGAGEMENT RING IN NEW PICS: We're getting a better look at the giant diamond engagement ring KANYE WEST surprised KIM KARDASHIAN with on Monday.
The initial Instagram photo the world was treated to yesterday was a bit fuzzy, but today we have two different photos that give us a better look of the reported $1.25 million sparkler. Kim herself posted one pic of the rock, and BFF Jonathan Cheban shared another -- both of which you can peep below.
This is Kim's second Lorraine Schwartz designed engagement ring ... and although smaller than the one KRIS HUMPHRIES gave her, 'Ye's rep says this one is "a D-stone, the best diamond there is, type 2A. It's a perfect cushion cut diamond," adding, "the ring is flawless. Not just internally flawless, it's flawless,
KANYE'S PROPOSAL TO AIR ON KARDASHIAN REALITY SHOW: You watched her get engaged to Kris Humphries, and soon you'll be able to watch Kim say "I do" to Kanye West.
I know you'll find this hard to believe, but the Kardashian Klan did not pass up the opportunity to film the over-the-top proposal. TMZ says multiple cameras were rolling during the extravaganza at AT&T Park in San Francisco, which included a 50-piece orchestra. The site says West has final approval over whether it goes on the family's reality show. I don't know, call us crazy but we're leaning toward yes.
On a related note but much lighter note … During a report on the couple’s engagement, MSNBC accidentally cut to the wrong footage. Instead of a video package on Kim and Kanye, they showed surveillance video of a guy accidentally walking off a subway platform and falling onto the tracks. The caption at the bottom read, "Kimye Engaged." Now if that isn't the PERFECT METAPHOR, then I don't know what is!

RELATIONSHIP REPORT/SPLITSVILLE: Former "American Idol" contestant and "Smash" star KATHERINE MCPHEE is reportedly dating her former TV series director Michael Morris.

The problem is...they're both married. Morris' wife and baby mama is MARY MCCORMACK, whom you may remember from the cable series "In Plain Sight". Katherine is married to a guy named Nick Cokas. Since it happened in plain sight, it may not be a KRISTEN STEWART-Snow-White-producer type situation. I mean, they weren’t exactly on the down low about it. Well, sources tell TMZ Katherine and Nick have been separated for six months. There's no word on the status of Michael and Mary's relationship.
WATCH KELLY CLARKSON'S WEDDING VIDEO: When KELLY CLARKSON and Brandon Blackstock were planning their marriage back in August; she made it clear she wanted to keep it simple. And true to her word, the only people who attended their wedding on Sunday were his two kids and the minister.
Because it was such a small, intimate affair, Kelly had a short wedding video made for friends and family. You can check it below. The scenery is nothing less than remarkable, and it looks like they're saying their vows at the 0:47 mark.
And if you're wondering how Kelly's mom dealt with not being there ... well, she's totally cool with it. She said, quote, "We're happy for her and she's so happy. She was so afraid we might be upset. But we were fine with it."
