online wedding registry suggests Justin Guarini and Nicole Richie are engaged.
Are American Idol Justin Guarini and The Simple Life star Nicole Richie are getting hitched on June 12? They are if you believe an online wedding registry at WeddingChannel.com is theirs. They’re registered under their real names, and want crap from Williams-Sonoma, NeimanMarcus, Restoration Hardware, REI, and Dean and Deluca. A World Entertainment News Network report attributes the news of their engagement and impending wedding to the site, but doesn’t indicate whether someone just found the registry on the site or if the company announced that Nicole and Justin had registered online. The registries are password-protected, which may or may not prove that it’s real. According to WENN, “Richie and Guarini’s representatives have yet to comment.” In the meantime, their registry’s guestbook is full of witty comments and grammatically incorrect slurs, from the likes of Kelly Clarkson (“hey bitches”) Jay Leno, Ellen Degeneres, Nicole’s drug dealer, and even Justin’s hair.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
