Anyway, nevermind about that, it's just that the seemingly disaparate duo made headlines together this week, as did Whoopi Goldberg for tongue-lashing—but not bitch-slapping—Michaele Salahi, and Lindsay Lohan, sheerly for leaving jail exactly when expected.
Happily this week was also a coming-out party of sorts for a betrothed couple who had to play dumb for the last four months, but in reality were just dying to share their infectious cuteness with the world...
BETROTHED: After everyone (producers, editors, Chris Harrison, Ali Fedotowsy herself, etc.) conspired to make it sound as if this season's Bachelorette went home unengaged, the season concluded with dreamy Roberto Martinez popping the question after much "soul-searching." Seriously, you couldn't even be sure he'd picked out a ring until the very end! Now, at least, there's nothing stopping the adorable (for now?) couple from enjoying their togetherness in public.
REAL HEADACHES: Whoopi Goldberg admits to cussing out White House party "guest" Michaele Salahi backstage at The View after hearing that Salahi had accused Goldberg of hitting her. It was someone else who used the word "hit," according to the Real Housewives of D.C. scene-stealer's attorney, but Salahi was pissed off anyway because the View ladies were told beforehand not to call Salahi a gatecrasher. That's alright, Joy and Sherri, America didn't get the memo, either.
FUNNY GIRLS: Harper's Bazaar dolled up Jennifer Aniston to look like Barbra Streisand for a photo spread celebrating the diva's chic and mercurial style. Many loved the concept, though plenty hated it, too, thinking that Aniston isn't fit to tune Babs' microphone. Or, that Streisand's style isn't worth replicating. The legend herself thought the homage lovely, despite the difference in their profiles.
IN TREATMENT: Scott Disick, perhaps sensing how unstable he was going to look on the last couple episodes of Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami, went and got some outpatient treatment for alcohol abuse and started counseling for his behavior issues. It seems to be working, because he and Kourtney looked as happy as klams in the Hamptons last weekend.
COMPREHENSIVE CARE: Lindsay Lohan got out of jail and went straight to UCLA Medical Center's neuropsychiatric hospital, where she's been ordered to spend 90 days getting dual treatment for substance abuse and psychiatric issues.
HAPPY DAY: Celebs of all stripes expressed joy after a federal judge overturned Prop 8, which made gay marriage a nonentity in California. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, who tied the knot when they could, and dozens of others, including Kim Kardashian, Adam Lambert and Paris Hilton lit up Twitter with their reactions.
WEDDING BELLS: Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in one of those fairytale, no-fly-zone ceremonies...Expectant parents Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz made it official on the isle of Corsica...Expectant parents James Van Der Beek and model Kimberly Brook tied the knot in Israel...T.I. celebrated his marriage to Tameka "Tiny" Cottle all weekend...Hilary Duff's nuptials are "imminent."
BREASTED INTEREST: Gisele Bündchen says there should be a law that forces mothers to breastfeed their babies for six months. You can imagine how thousands of formula-utilizing women feel about that.

Pretty Woman: Aspiring porn star Montana Fishburne, daughter of a chagrined Laurence Fishburne, faced a charge of prostitution last year, which she got out of by copping to criminal trespass instead. So does it matter that her probation terms stipulate that she can't have sex for money?
WRIGHT MOVES: Speak of the devil, Sean Penn is now offically divorced from Robin Wright.
