Michael Buckner/Getty ImagesBenji Madden is so smitten with his new girl, Paris, that when asked if he'd get engaged within the next six months he said, "I'm not gonna bet against you on that." The rocker says, "nothing would make me happier" than spending the rest of his life with the hotel heiress. "You know you walk around feeling lucky all day. You just want to get on top of a mountain and go, 'I'm in love!'" Wow, Benji, which one of Paris' multitude of wonderful character traits are you head over heels with?
-Her ability to dance on tables in heels without falling down?
-Her life-altering vocal skills on her debut album?
-Her disregard for pets or they way she dresses them up like a little doll?
-Her ever expansive vocabulary?
-Her Academy Award worthy performance in "House of Wax"?
-The way she looks naked on camera under infrared light?
"I always knew that she was, like, wife material, or serious girlfriend material," says Madden. Maybe because she's been engaged twice already? Sorry Benji, we're

Read More »from "LOST": I love you, but sometimes I wish we could break up
It all began in the blizzard that hit New York on January 22, 2005. I was flipping through the channels with my roommate when we collectively stopped on a repeat of ABC's "LOST." After a few minutes of growing increasingly captivated by characters and scenarios I knew nothing about, I threw on my North Face and ran across the street to Blockbuster to rent disc one of the season. Less than four hours later I was calling up the video store to see if they had discs two, three and four in stock. And so...the obsession began!
Three years, four seasons and many a hiatus later, I'm just as hooked as I was on that first night, if not more so. But being a Lostie (or Lostaway as some call us) sure takes it's toll! I often wonder if my blood pressure and stress levels go up before and after a viewing. Between the flashbacks, the flashforwards, the island, the numbers, the monster, the Dharma Initiative, the hallucinations, the whispers, the Others, the ship and the cabin--there's only so much a

Getty ImagesThis is the best/worst idea ever. Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, was arrested on April 22 on an accusation of forging a $360,000,000,000 dollar check. What was he check for? Charles claims his girlfriend's mom gave it to him to start a record business…you know, cause who doesn't have $360 billion lying around. Besides the fact that it was fraudulent, there was one other minor detail-the check was not even made out in his name! What the heck was this guy thinking? WAS he thinking? Where do you even come up with a figure like that? Sounds like this dude needs a lesson from Frank Abagnale, the master check forger Leo Dicaprio played in "Catch Me if you Can"-at least he conned his way to $2.1 million!

Read More »from Here we go again! Rumors of Beyonceâ€™s pregnancy and Mariah might already be hitched!
Dave M. Benett/Getty ImagesPeople will never stop guessing who did what and why. And we're no better! Hollywood scoop says Beyonce will be the latest addition to the star mommy clan with multiple sources claiming, "Beyonce is 100% pregnant, which is why the couple rushed their wedding." Apparently all the guests at their top secret wedding were fully aware that B was with child and got married in a hurry due to her strong Christian beliefs.
In other news, Mariah Carey may have had a shotgun wedding yesterday! Someone close to Nick Cannon spilled the beans to Latina.com that they got married in a small ceremony (a few pals including rapper Da Brat) on an island on Wednesday and it was "very impulsive. This news comes just after Perez Hilton blogged about Nick recycling her engagement ring. Let's hope at least that part isn't true-Ms. Carey deserves better than a pre-worn diamond!
Are you buying these rumors, or will it take more for you to buy into the hype? [Hollyscoop, Latina]

Sandra Rose/Getty ImagesWe all know about the drama between Whitney Houston and ex-hubby Bobby Brown and their drug problems. Sadly, that environment seems to have deeply affected their 15-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.Read More »from Whitney Houstonâ€™s daughter Bobbi Kristina needs some serious help
A family member, Ann Davis, says that days shy of BK's 15th birthday she tried to stab Whitney during an argument with a razor and then used it to slit her own wrists. Davis says part of the problem is that she doesn't wanna live with Whitney. Either way, Bobbi Kristina's suicide attempt landed her in a psych ward in Atlanta.
This really makes us sad when a young girl has to go through so much. Good luck Bobby K! We hope your mom can woman up and take care of you, as she should.

Sex and the City's Kim Cattrall told Oprah that when it comes to the men she dates, age ain't nothing but a number. In fact, she'll go as low as the legal limit… or lower!
"I'm limitless as far as age is concerned…As long as he has a driver's license. I don't want to pick him up."
Is this irresponsible? How young is too young? [Perez]

Gustavo Caballero/Getty ImagesRead More »from Jennifer Aniston and the 10 most eligible bachelorettes!
Ever since the Brangelia tornado hit L.A., everyone is like, "Woe is Jen." Yes, we feel bad that her marriage ended, as so many do, but it's irritating how tabloids have desperately tried to match her up with a celeb every time she she so much as sneezes in their direction. Last month it was co-star Owen Wilson, then Orlando Bloom, now it's freshly inked up (did you see his tattoo sleeve?) John Mayer-only this time the rumors seem to hold some truth. Aniston may have finally found herself a keeper, but what about these other lovely but single ladies?
These eligible bachelorettes are just begging for a quality guy. Here are our suggestions:
1) Cameron Diaz - A handsome, outdoorsy type who will make her laugh.
2) Sheryl Crow - A tough yet sensitive dude who will feel her mellow vibe. Maybe younger!
3) Mariah Carey - A music executive who appreciates her talent, will make her feel special and won't laugh at her ultra girly room.
4) Britney Spears - A gentleman from the Midwest who

"She was dancing, drinking and playing with her hair extensions," a source told Page Six. "The hours are going by and everyone is leaving, some people left very late, and she was still there partying, still going. She probably stayed past the staff."
