'Vampire Diaries' actress Candice Accola stars in The Fray's 'Love Don't Die' video, kisses fiance Joe King -- VIDEO

THE-FRAY-ACCOLA.jpg

If John Legend’s “All of Me” music video proved anything, it’s that having a significant other in the business is both incredibly convenient and incredibly amazing. Suddenly, music videos become much easier to cast, not to mention the fact that fans eat it up when real-life couples get all romantic on screen.

And speaking of eating something up, I’m a little obsessed with Candice Accola’s appearance in The Fray’s “Love Don’t Die” music video. As much as I love the Vampire Diaries actress on her own, the fact that she is engaged to The Fray’s guitarist, Joe King, only sweetens the deal.

The video places the band in a biker bar, singing from behind a fence for their protection. But when a man is less-than-nice to Ms. Accola, her real-life fiance comes to the rescue and starts quite the bar brawl. She then does what any woman would do: She kisses the heck out of him. The moment is equal amounts fun and voyeuristic.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged

Screen Shot 2013-10-22 at 1.19.19 AM

Kanye West, 36, proposed to Kim Kardashian on Monday, October 21, her 33rd birthday. He did it in front of their family and friends after renting out AT&T Park in San Francisco — a park which may now be ruined for many, many people. It’s too soon to say how many, but it’s safe to say AT&T Park is not amused. “I never asked for this,” a blade of its grass told EW exclusively.

Kim said yes! There may have even been a video camera or 600 around. Expect more footage of this moment than you could possibly imagine, coming up on E! tonight, all week, and for the rest of your life.

E! — which in the case of the Kardashians is like a flesh-eating bacteria on a hand that keeps regenerating itself, and I mean that with the utmost respect (#Halloween) — announced the news at 1:13 a.m. ET. I can’t believe they got the exclusive! Do you think they pulled some strings?

The press release/article is a trip, if you’re up for it. And apparently I am!

Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold's drawn-out Twitter spat: Here's how it went down

Ah, social media — how did we ever stalk our exes without it?

Of course, checking in on a former love carries big risks — as Roseanne Barr discovered a few days ago, when someone informed her that her ex-husband Tom Arnold had recently tweeted about getting rid of some old wedding videos.

Though Barr and Arnold divorced nearly 20 years ago — and both have been married at least once since — there still seem to be some raw feelings between them. So when Barr responded to Arnold’s message with a tart tweet of her own, he replied in kind, leading to a drawn-out sparring match filled with spiteful accusations (“You sold my grandmother’s sewing machine”), dismissive condescension (“Yes mother dear”), and outright hostile insults (“For christ sakes. I remember when you used to be a comedian”).

Don’t worry, though — it all ends on a positive note, with Roseanne congratulating Tom on the recent birth of his son Jax, and even doing the kid’s star charts, or something. Good; to paraphrase comedian Morgan Murphy, I hate it when Mom and Dad fight.

Katy Perry says Russell Brand asked for a divorce via text message

One he sent her on New Year’s Eve, no less! This sort of thing is why the “That Was Way Harsh, Tai” tag was created.

In a revealing cover interview for Vogue‘s July issue, the 28-year-old singer discusses her career and her relationship history — paying special attention to her brief marriage to comedian and cable news scourge Russell Brand. “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry says of her ex, whom she met in the summer of 2009 and married in the fall of 2010.

“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,” she continues — one day after he formally filed for divorce. The couple’s split was finalized in July 2012.

According to Snoop Lion, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are over -- VIDEO

The gods of love giveth (maybe), and the gods of love taketh away (also maybe).

Just when we were finally recovering from the news of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s potential reunion, Snoop Lion has rocked our worlds by insinuating that professional twerker Miley Cyrus and her fiance Liam Hemsworth are officially kaput.

The name-changing rapper recently collaborated with Cyrus on “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” a single Snoop says is about “change, turnaround, and you know, just going through things.” What kind of things, specifically? “I can’t speak for her, you know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists,” he told HuffPost Live yesterday. “I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career.”

Selena Gomez burns Justin Bieber on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

In case those dueling versions of “Cry Me a River” just weren’t getting the point across, Selena Gomez wants to make it clear that she and Justin Bieber are well and truly over. And while her ex’s behavior over the past few months has been, er, erratic, to say the least, Gomez seems to be thriving post-breakup: “I’m so good,” she told David Letterman last night, giggling like a schoolgirl who can’t believe she used to date a dude who seriously owns this hat.

And that wasn’t the end of the conversation. Letterman casually mentioned that the last time Bieber visited the Late Show, the host made his guest cry — though to be fair, Bieber deserved it for thinking the Apostolic Palace’s most famous place of worship is called the “Sixteenth Chapel.” Gomez’s lightning-quick response? “Well then, that makes two of us.” Ohhh snap, or whatever the kids are saying these days!

Ryan Gosling joins long line of directors who have cast their wives and girlfriends in movies

Earlier this month, Ryan Gosling cast girlfriend Eva Mendes in his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. With production on the fantasy film set to begin this May, Gosling is a few months away from the joys and challenges of directing a significant other.

But Gosling is hardly the first director to cast his sweetheart in his own movie. Woody Allen is famous for dating (and sometimes marrying) many of his leading ladies, and Paul Newman also directed wife Joanne Woodward in multiple films.

Here’s a round-up of other men who have directed their actress significant others — some of whom are still going strong, while others’ relationships are in the rear-view mirror.

Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich
This couple met while working on 2002′s Resident Evil. Since they began dating in 2003 (with a wedding following in 2009), Anderson and Jovovich have made four more films in the lucrative zombie franchise. The British director also cast his wife in his 2011 adaptation of The Three Musketeers.
Anderson on directing Jovovich: “I always call her the hardest working person in show business. I’ve never met an actor as dedicated as she is. She’s like the Terminator, relentless. It can be 2 a.m. in the morning, and she suggests we talk about some aspect of the film. How about we don’t, Milla? But we both just love making movies.” [Huffington Post]
Jovovich on working with Anderson: “I tell Paul every day, he spoils me. It is such a pleasure. We have our family together. We do these fun movies together. What am I going to do when I have to go work with somebody else?” [Huffington Post]
Are they still together? Yep. And they’re planning to continue their working relationship too — both are expected to return for a sixth Resident Evil installment. READ FULL STORY

Be still our teenage hearts: Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen are dating!

It’s a match made in fan fiction heaven!

According to Us Weekly, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody — the brunet[te] stars of Josh Schwartz’s teen drama hits Gossip Girl and The O.C., respectively — have been “secretly dating for weeks.” The news was confirmed by People this afternoon; although reps for Brody and Meester aren’t talking, sources say that the actors are, in fact, an item. Excuse me while I stifle a squeal.

This is even better than that list of on-screen couples we’d like to see dating in real life. Sure, Blair and Chuck were meant for each other… but it was always a little tough to get over the fact that he once sold her for a hotel. (Not that that’s a thing one can actually do, but, well, you know.) And as adorable as Seth and Summer were on The O.C., Cohen could probably benefit from the once and future Queen B’s tough love.

The Ballad of Chris Brown and Rihanna continues

chris-brown-rihanna

How long before these two release an updated version of “’03 Bonnie and Clyde”?

So yeah, it sure looks like Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together. Exhibit C: This photo, which Brown posted to his Instagram feed yesterday. (For reference, here are exhibits A and B.) The caption: “What would music today sound like if these kids didn’t exist?” Never let it be said that Breezy isn’t humble.

The filtered snapshot — featuring Rihanna clad only in underwear and an oversized camo blanket, the most she’s worn on camera in awhile — is notable for being the first recent Instagrammed picture of the pair in which both of their faces are clearly visible. Sorry, anyone who thought the photos Rihanna posted previously weren’t actually of Chris Brown; your hopes have just been shattered.

Prepare thyselves: A Brangelina wedding is 'nigh,' says Brad Pitt

Soothsaying powers and scraggly wizard hair must be a packaged deal. At last night’s Killing Them Softly premiere, Brad Pitt revealed to People that his wedding to Angelina Jolie is on the horizon: “The time is nigh. It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it,” he prophesized, gazing off at a future that only he could see. In the distance, a raven crowed.

Really, though, Pitt says that the couple’s international brood — a cookie to anyone who can name all six Brangelina spawn without Googling! — are the main reason that the wedding is imminent. “I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime,” he said at the premiere. “We’ve had a family, we’ve raised the kids. I am surprised how much [marriage] meant to me once you had that.” Clearly, Molly and Arthur Weasley will be Brangelina’s marriage role models.
