Gilbert Arenas Is ENGAGED!+Beyonce's Having Album Issues?+BET's President Resigns

Beyonce's deadline is today to turn in her material for her new album due out Nov. 18th. But word has it she's not close to being done. And it's mainly because she's been acting in several movies and doing duets with other people like Justin Timberlake. And she's also not getting along with the VP of her daddy's Music World Company. However, the people over at Sony say she's right on track and the album is about 98% done. She's still going to release her 2 singles "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies" next Tuesday. And the album will still be released Nov. 18th. Wizards baller Gilbert Arenas is dishing about his new engagement to his on again off again girlfriend Laura. And how his new fiance actually proposed to him. Here's a snippet from his engagement story: I was thinking up ways to do it, you know, maybe I’ll do like an Easter egg hunt for the ring or something. But then it came to me, I was going to kick it back old school with a “Do you like me?” note that you would do in elementary school. Only, I couldn’t write the note, because that would be like me asking her. So I got my friend to write on a piece of paper “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” in big block letters with two boxes to check off, “YES” or “NO.” Then the final step was for him to write “(READ OUT LOUD)” at the top of the note. I folded it up and had it in my pocket. So there we are at dinner and all her family is there, my dad, her dad, her friends, my friends, Antawn Jamison showed up, Mos Def and a couple people from Mos Def’s crew showed up. At the end of the meal, in front of everybody, I tell her that I have one last gift for her. I told her, “This is my gift” and I handed her the note and I sit down. She opens the note and she reads it and she says, “Read out loud,” but sort of to herself under her breath because you know, you’re always going to read something to yourself before you blurt it out to the room. Then she reads silently, “Will you marry me?” Then she flipped the note over to see if there was anything written on the back and then looked at me weird. I said to her, “You have to read it out loud.” So she goes, “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” out loud so everybody could hear her. It worked. It turns out she ended up asking me to marry her. I was like, “Oh my God!!!” and started screaming like the girl who gets asked normally does. “I can’t believe you asked me!!!! Of course I will!!! Oh my God, it’s been six long years, what took you so long???!!!??? Oh my God!!! This is unbelievable!!!!” Everyone started cracking up and laughing. But we still had the ring to take care of. It’s not like I had it and was going to get down on one knee because first of all, I only have one good knee as it is, and second of all, she’s the one who asked me. But, I had to produce the ring. I had three Ring Pops ready with three plastic red Solo cups covering them up. I took her over to the cups and told her that whichever one she picks, that’s going to be her engagement ring. So she flips over one and it’s a cherry Ring Pop. She goes for the second one, it’s a grape Ring Pop. She flips over the third one, it’s watermelon. She’s looking at me like, “Where’s the real ring?!” but I just go, “Hey, no ring gets any better than that!” Everybody was laughing. But I had really given the ring to my son. So I go, “Give it to mommy,” and my son actually gave the ring to her. So, for the record, she asked me. You can check out the rest on his blog here. Congrats to Gilbert!

"GTFOH!" is definitely the first thing that came to my mind.  Jennifer Hudson's rep has confirmed to People that she and David "Punk" Otunga are now engaged.  Punk popped the question this past Friday night, which was actually Jenny's 27th birthday, in L.A.

What's Really Hood Busta & Laurie Ann?+Deelishis Is Getting Married!

Well here's a couple interesting pics of Laurie Ann Gibson and Busta Rhymes on the post-VMA red carpet: Should we send out a new couple alert? They're looking mighty cozy. And I don't know about y'all but I don't know many females who would be thisclose to dragon mouth Bussa Buss (according to Diddy) unless she was letting him tap that. Just sayin'... Deelishis, b.k.a. London Charles, is officially engaged to her man Orlando Gordon and she's dishing about the proposal and the upcoming wedding. And her new step-daughters to be. More pics and the article about his proposal and their upcoming wedding when you read the rest...

Halle & That Ring Again...

There goes that damn ring again.  Halle B. was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills today rocking a helluva lot of diamonds on that fourth finger left hand.   And this isn't the first time that particular ring has been on that particular finger.  Methinks Ms. Halle is reneging on her statement about never marrying again.  And if her baby's daddy Gabe is making her that happy...I'm not even mad.

Diddy & Cassie ENGAGED!?+Danity Kane & Bow Wow Do FNM+The Do Gooders

Star magazine is reporting that Diddy and Cassie are now telling the people close to them that they got engaged last month.  According to Star: "He told everyone to keep it extremely quiet because he didn't want it to get out, but you could tell he was excited," says a source. "Diddy said they hadn't set a date yet, but he wanted his family to hear the news first." Apparently he popped the question at Justin's eigth grade graduation on June 5th.  This is all very interesting since a couple weeks ago Cassie herself said they broke up.  Maybe they were engaged last month and that's the break up Cassie was speaking of.  Or maybe they have made up.  Or maybe all this ish is wrong.  Either way, I'm just passing on the news.  And again, pick up your face Kim Porter.    UPDATE: Reps for Diddy and Cassie say this is a complete fabrication and they are NOT engaged.   Danity Kane and Bow Wow were hit up MTV's FNM taping last night as DK is featuring their new "Bad Girl" video tomorrow night.   More pics when you read the rest...
