Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are Engaged: The E! star got the surprise of her life when her longtime love got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage.  Kanye managed to keep his birthday surprise for Kim a secret from not only her, but from most of the rest of the family as well, thanks to future mother-in-law Kris Jenner, who said that she couldn't be happier for her "kids."

In an exclusive clip from the memorable night, you can see a car pulling onto the field and then Kim's wide-eyed reaction as the orchestra plays Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Kanye's "Knock You Down." Kylie Jenner and Khloé Kardashian Odom's reaction when they figure out what's going on is pretty priceless, too, after which Kris tells the group it's time to join the lovebirds out on the field.

Kanye selected a flawless D-stone "best diamond there is" for the 15-carat cushion-cut ring by Lorraine Schwartz, who was one of the select friends of the family to witness the proposal.

Kelly Clarson Marries Brandon Blackstock: Kelly Clarkson is no longer Miss. Independent! The Grammy winner married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in a small ceremony in Tennessee on Sunday, Oct. 20. Clarkson broke the news via Twitter on Monday, Oct. 21, writing, "I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock. We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!"

The beautiful bride donned a lace design by Temperley Bridal and had her hair pulled up into a romantic updo with a slightly undone feel. Clarkson carried a bouquet of sunflowers and Bluebonnets—the official flower of Texas, her home state.

Only a small group of friends and family were in attendance, including Blackstock's two kids from his first marriage.

The bride and groom first met in 2006 during rehearsals for the American Country Music Awards. They began dating six years later, and in December 2012, Blackstock asked Clarkson for her hand in marriage.

Lara Flynn Boyle Looks Nearly Unrecognizable: Lara Flynn Boyle looks nearly unrecognizable from her former self. The 43-year-old brunette actress made a rare outing, shopping with her mother in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

The Twin Peaks star's dramatically altered appearance, most noticeably her extremely puffy cheeks and lips, may be due to going overboard with cosmetic procedures.
