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!

I'm Still Not Over...Not knowing characters' fates after big cliffhangers

boy-meets-world.jpg

Cliffhangers are rough. Cliffhangers that are never resolved, despite dozens more episodes before series’ end? Unacceptable.

The most egregious example of this is Mr. Turner’s Boy Meets World fate. While like any good ‘90s kid I was obsessed with Cory and Topanga and clung to every word Mr. Feeny said, one relationship that really stuck with me over the years was the one between cool, young, badass teacher Mr. Turner and troubled teen Shawn Hunter. Fans know where I’m going with this…

Despite seasons of investment watching Mr. Turner and Shawn grow closer — even culminating in Turner wrestling with whether to become Shawn’s actual legal guardian — Turner disappeared from the show with no satisfying conclusion during the run of the show. In the season 4 episode “Cult Fiction,” a directionless Shawn decides to join a cult (!), but is rattled when Mr. Turner gets into a motorcycle accident. The end of the episode shows a distraught Shawn holding a body-cast-covered Mr. Turner’s hand in the hospital…and then Turner’s never seen again.

I’ve spent the past 15 years wondering what happened to Mr. Turner. (And happily, it looks like I’m going to — finally — get some answers.) But Boy Meets World is far from the only show to cavalierly play with my heart — and unfortunately, I don’t think these other programs are going to get information-dispensing spin-offs anytime soon.

'Reign' react: Teenagers go a courtin'

Sorry, Sleepy Hollow: Reign saw your headless horseman and raised you a French court complete with a supernatural spirit protecting a young! sexy! teenage! Mary, Queen of Scots as she works her way through the social and political minefield that was royalty at the time.

History buffs are sure to be disappointed by The CW getting into the politics of 16th century French court (Francis II of France was not so much a stud as he was sickly), but for those of us who are looking for an over-the-top costume drama by the people who brought you 90210, welcome to your new favorite show.

The premiere showcased Mary’s (Adelaide Kane) arrival at court, and — just like in high school — it’s hard to be the new girl. She meets up with her Anthropologie-dressed ladies in waiting, and awkwardly meets the Dauphin of France, Francis. (Toby Regbo)…and his hot half-brother Bash (Torrance Coombs), who looks like a Vampire Diaries castoff who already has an Oscar in smoldering.

Miley Cyrus on 'Today': Everything's going according to plan -- VIDEO

TODAY-SHOW-Miley.jpg

Newsflash, guys: All along, Miley’s been acting this way because she wants attention. I’ll pause while you pick your fallen monocles off the floor.

The 20-year-old revealed her dastardly strategy this morning on Today, telling Matt Lauer that her notorious VMAs performance “went exactly as planned” — after all, “it’s a month later and we’re still talking about it.” And when Lauer asked Cyrus if she’s surprised by the attention she’s been getting lately, Cyrus answered, “Not really. I mean, it’s kind of what I want. I’m an artist so I’m hoping I get a little attention. Otherwise, my record sales might be a little sketch.”

Quelle surprise! What’s next, the notion that men find Scarlett Johansson attractive?

'MasterChef Junior' premiere: A bit too sweet?

Oh no. Very talented children. In a STUNNING! turn for the worse, I feel more creaky and less accomplished than ever before now that I have watched a 9-year-old whip up a molten lava cake with glazed raspberries that Gordon Ramsay awarded “a 10 out of 10.” It’s MasterChef…Junior! READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and its residents tell you how to get to Sesame Street -- VIDEO

Warning: The following video will make you grin uncontrollably.

Late Night‘s occasional “classroom instruments” videos — in which Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and special guests perform popular songs accompanied only by woodblocks, toy xylophones, and the like — are generally pretty great. For pure joy value, though, none of the previous clips can compare to this one — which features Fallon and his band performing Sesame Street‘s theme song with Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and the rest of that show’s principal cast of muppets.

They’re counted in by The Count. Partway through, Cookie Monster devours his instrument. The Roots’ Black Thought does a Sesame Street-themed rap, assisted by Abby Cadabby. This video is, in short, awesome, and you should watch it immediately.

Miley Cyrus covers 'Rolling Stone': Her 6 best quotes

Miley Cyrus has a message for the haters, by way of a Teddy Roosevelt quote:  “So THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

The phrase, meaning you can’t please everyone, is tattooed on her arm. This is just one of many revelations in the you-know-you’re-going-to-read-the-heck-out-of-it Miley Cyrus Rolling Stone cover story, now available in full online. (Yes, her tongue is out on the cover; no, there aren’t any hammers in sight.) No surprise, the girl who first got big just bein’ Miley isn’t offering any apologies.

Instead, throughout the interview, she seems aware that this feature is a big moment for her and how she wants to present herself going forward; she seems eager to cram as many “bad gurrl” experiences into the piece as she can, from getting a tattoo to clubbing to sky diving. She even mentions support from fellow rabble-rouser Kanye West, who apparently is a fan. Below, read the best Miley Cyrus quotes (stay for the unexpected Steve Carell shout-out!) from the story:

Cher slams Miley Cyrus, but feels 'ashamed' for her comments

Reactions to Miley Cyrus at the VMAs: People are still having them!

Earlier this week, we heard what both Britney Spears and Paula Patton had to say about the performance. (Spoiler alert: They think she’s just being Miley.) But while both those stars were shrugging their shoulders, another music legend was sharpening her claws.

“I’m not old-fashioned,” Cher told USA Today in an interview published Tuesday. “She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”

Britney Spears defends Miley Cyrus on 'GMA', plus 4 other things we learned -- VIDEO

Britney Spears gave America a piece of her this morning…and it was awesome.

Spears stopped by Good Morning America to announce a residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, but that wasn’t all viewers learned during her quick sit down with Sam Champion. Spears, who rarely does interviews, was her goofy self, a happy sight for fans. She even participated in a lightning round of questions about her famous past. What did viewers learn? Read on for her thoughts on Miley Cyrus (Spears will guest on her upcoming album), the “Oops…I Did it Again” dance, and even a little bit of intel about one Mr. Justin Timberlake. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel reveals he's behind 'twerk fail' viral video

Reason number 259,467 you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet.

Last week, the Internet collectively freaked out over a YouTube video that showed a girl twerking against a doorway, only to be knocked over into a table (Paging Chris Farley!) and setting herself on fire. Uploaded Tuesday, it had been viewed over 9 million times. But for everyone who thought the ‘unbelievable’ video was a bit too, well, unbelievable: You were right. Jimmy Kimmel was behind it.

Kimmel broke the news on his show last night, explaining that the girl is actually a stuntwoman, they filmed the video two months ago, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Miley Cyrus and the VMA Twerk Heard Round The World. He then played a montage of news anchors showing the not-at-all-confirmed-to-be-real video.
