Blogger Bites Back: Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are engaged

Add a comment

It's official: Orlando Bloom and Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr are engaged to be married.

Yes, I know we've been here many times before, but this time the rumours are true - a rep for Bloom confirmed the news today - so you can un-arch those cynical eyebrows.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 33, has been dating Kerr, 27, since 2007, and repeatedly denied rumours of an impending vow-swapping ceremony throughout their romance.

Reports surfaced in Australian media in November 2008 that the yummy pair was officially off the market. The claim was, however, swiftly denied by Kerr's mouthpiece.

"The story ... is completely false and misleading," the rep said at the time.

"Miranda herself has clearly stated she is not engaged. There is nothing else to be said."

Kerr also set tongues wagging last year when she was snapped sporting a sparkler on her ring finger in Cannes.

And earlier this year Kerr trashed reports her man had put a ring on it.

"I think Orlando is an incredible man and he's a very genuine and authentic individual. I'm grateful that he's in my life. No, we're not engaged. You can't always believe everything you read!," she told Hello! magazine.

Bloom has said the couple makes their relationship work, despite their busy schedules.

"Miranda and I spend so much time apart, she's working hard, I'm working hard, so we have to grab time together whenever we can," he said in 2009.

"A weekend here, a weekend there. We are just enjoying our time together now."

Kerr concurs. Now that he's popped the question, I wouldn't be surprised if kids are on the menu.

"I've always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen," Kerr said recently.

"My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch.

"When this is all over, that's where I'll be."

No word on when he popped the question, or when the wedding is. I'll keep you posted.

Congratulations to them both!

And so we go from one extreme to the other...

Shameless reality TV screen-hoggers Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are getting divorced. Definitely. Maybe.

TMZ reports that Montag has hired legal muscle to emancipate herself from the flatlining marriage.

According to TMZ, Montag has hired Jodeane Farrell to handle her divorce, who's quoted as saying the Speidi split is "very amicable" at the moment.

At the moment. You can bet your granny it won't be long before they play dirty and pull out all the stops to besmirch each other in public.

And all, if rumour be true, in aid of yet another reality TV series the pair has on the boil.

Shameless!

Oh, and even before she's put ink on those divorce papers, Montag's already got her beady eye on a new guy. Justin Bieber.

Montag made her move on the pop phenom over Twitter today: "@justinbieber now that I am getting divorced I think you and I should do a photo shoot together! Cutie ;) ! I'm closer to your age"

Run Bieber, run!

Klein goes to rehab

Speaking of shame. Chris Klein has done the decent thing and carted himself off to rehab to wash away his sins.

Klein's rep confirms the American Pie alum has voluntarily checked himself into a rehab facility in Utah following his DUI arrest last week.

A statement from his rep said: "After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he cannot beat this disease alone.

"He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so."

Good luck with it all, Klein.

Oprah's toe job?

You've got to love the interwebnet. Font of all knowledge and frequent belcher of titillating tabloid tattle.

Heard the one about TV titan Oprah Winfrey and her sixth toe? Word is the Big O has an extra toe on her left foot and she's keen on having it seen to.

Step back in time to 2007 and clap your eyes on this snap of Oprah, sporting what looks suspiciously like a sixth toe.

The net was buzzing yesterday with the rumour that Oprah was all set to have the little piggy removed. Where and why this particular rumour was kick-started is anyone's guess. Clearly some freak with a foot fetish. Ugh.

Splitsville for Prince Harry?

Not so fast.

Britain's News of the World reported on Sunday that royal spawn Prince Harry and longtime girlfriend Chelsy Davy had given their romance the two-finger salute.

The tabloid claimed Davy, 24, dumped the 25-year-old Prince because the sizzle had vanished from their relationship, so she was off to South Africa to start a legal career.

"It was an obvious time for a clean break. The spark is gone and she's focused on moving back to be where her heart lies," the report claimed.

"They have not split up - News of the World jumped the gun," a snitch now tells Usmagazine.com.

"Harry knew for some while that Chelsy will be moving back to Zambia. There is no getting around that right now.

"What the newspaper failed to point out is that Harry's [Apache Attack Hellicopter] conversion course begins next month, that continues for eight months, and there is a further eight months at the RAF Wattisham base [in Suffolk, England]. They would not have been together much even if she was staying in the UK."

Stay tuned...
