Q: I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half now. He brings up an engagement ring every week, but he hasn’t asked me to marry him yet. When he brings it up, I just look at him and smile. I make more money than he does, and now I don’t know if he is manipulating me into thinking that he is going to propose or not. I’ve set a timeline of two and a half years and if there’s no proposal, I’m walking. I’m starting to think that he doesn’t have any money for the ring, so shes just buying time. Or, what if he’s using me? What do you think? Help.

So it seems the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston has rekindled her relationship with her informally adopted brother-turned-boyfriend Nick Gordon. During a beach vacay of some sort, Bobbi Kristina posted photos of the seemingly happy couple on the boardwalk with a very visible rock on her fourth finger, left hand. Oh and then there was this:
— Bobbi Kristina Brown (@REALbkBrown) July 3, 2013
The couple had first announced their engagement to the rest of the Houston family during the taping of their short-lived Lifetime reality series “The Houstons: On Our Own” to which the family showed serious disapproval.
Viewers didn’t think it was such a great idea, calling the relationship “incestuous,” as Whitney Houston had informally adopted Gordon when he was 12 years old. Not only that, but the very apathetic way in which Gordon regarded Bobbi Kristina throughout the series gave many onlookers pause as they believed it foreshadowed a repeat destructive pattern that the young Houston’s mother and father, Bobbi Brown displayed throughout their relationship.
Family and friends have also been very concerned for Bobbi Kristina’s well-being since her mother passed away a year ago. Tyler Perry even said in an interview with Oprah that he felt a responsibility to do what he could to help the child as he had been great friends with Whitney Houston. He cast Bobbi Kristina in a small role in his TBS comedy, “For Better or For Worse” in which she didn’t do a bad job.
Does Bobbi Kristina seem happy? Yes… Maybe. Pictures can tell any story we want them to. It does seem that due to the very volatile nature of her life for the past few years that she should take it slowly. They are essentially just kids. What’s the rush?
Do you think these two should be married?
I’m Not Going To Desert Him Because Of A Mistake: John Legend Explains Why He Kept Rick Ross On His New Single
John Legend is gearing up for the release of his new album, “Love in the Future,” next month, and if you haven’t heard the leading single “Who Do We Think We Are,” you are definitely missing out. The soulful slow jam brings all types of sexay — much like the sensual video that accompanies it — and thankfully for the Springfield, OH, singer it didn’t bring controversy despite the feature rapper on the track, Rick Ross.
Madame Noire got a chance to chat with John Legend today and we asked him whether he considered removing Rozay from his new track in light of his rape lyric controversy on U.O.E.N.O and he told us plainly, “no.”
“The track was already out when that controversy happened,” John told us. “It was already done, released to radio, and we had already shot the video. Plus I felt like I wasn’t going to completely drop somebody I had been working with for years because they made a mistake. We’ve done a lot of great work together and he did make a mistake — he effed up — and he rightfully got criticized for it, but I’m not going to desert him completely because of that.”
John and Ross do have a rather long history together. John Legend appeared on Ricky’s track “Magnificent” off of his “Deeper Than Rap” album in 2009, and he was also featured on “Rich Forever” on Ross’s mixtape of the same name. Apparently the two might strike magic again this time around, if people are still tolerating Ross after his slip-up.
In other John Legend news, the singer told us he and fiancée Chrissy Teigan have set a date for their big day and they will be jumping the broom this year! John told us of the upcoming wedding ceremony:
“It will be this year. We’re not really discussing a date or location any further, but we do know when and where and it will be this year.”
Although we know the pair likes to keep the details of their relationship under wraps, we did ask the Grammy-nominated artist if he and his wife-to-be would ever consider doing a reality TV show. Thankfully, that answer was a “no” as well.
“We get presented with that all the time, but I just feel like that’s not for us,” he said.” Some people do fine with it, but it’s hard enough to be in a relationship in general. There are always challenge, but to live out those challenges on television every day I think is unnecessary and we’re going to stay out of that.
Smart move on their part.
Check out the video for John’s new single “Who Do We Think We Are” below, if you haven’t seen it yet. What do you think?
Okay, hopefully we will eventually be able to file this under “glad it never happened” and move on.
But right now, Mouth to Ears is reporting that singer Brandy and her fiance Ryan Press are planning to televise their wedding. The new kingpin of reality shows, VH1, is the alleged buyer and according to MTE’s source, they’re going to be paying for everything.
Brandy has already revealed that her daughter Sy’rai will be her maid of honor. She also recently told Hip Hollywood that while they haven’t really started planning, she envisions her hair in an inward french braid going down the side with a flower. So either she really hasn’t started planning yet or VH1 actually has gotten dibs on the show and she can’t say much.
A good piece of advice that she picked up from Niecy Nash? It isn’t about the wedding, it’s about the marriage. Brandy said she’s continuing to make sure she has the best relationship possible.
If you’ll recall – and we know you do because every time there’s a Brandy story someone in the comments brings it up – Brandy did a reality show with her “husband” Robert which followed them in their journey to the birth of their daughter. The thing we all found out was that Brandy and Robert never married and that little lie has followed her everywhere.
Brandy appears really happy with Ryan so while we’d definitely catch the show if it did come on VH1, we can probably do without a wedding special and just see pictures when they surface online.
We shall see.
Would you watch Brandy and Ryan’s wedding special?
Jason Derulo, who has been dating singer Jordin Sparks for 18 months, says he’s currently in the planning stages of his marriage proposal.
”The proposal will be monumental,” he told In Touch Weekly. “I wrote a song called ‘Marry Me.’ I have a date in mind. I want to surprise her but she’s given me guidelines first. I have to ask her dad for permission.”
Jordin has been very open about her relationship with Jason and has admitted she would love to settle down with him and start a family.

I don’t know why I’m as excited for Kandi’s engagement as I would be one of my close friends but after the heartbreak one of my favorite “Real Housewives of Atlanta” girls has gone through, I’m happy to see her so happy — and newly blinged out.
We told you a couple of days ago that the singer-songwriter got engaged to her line producer boo thang, Todd Tucker, on New Year’s Eve, and the couple just did a spread for US Magazine showing off the new jewel Miss Bedroom Kandi is now rocking on her ring finger. The two-carat white diamond engagement ring was designed by Gregg Ruth and definitely looks good on Kandi, who can now use that hand to wave goodbye to the “forever single club” she thought she was apart of. And the best part of it all is Kandi’s 10-year-old daughter, Riley, gave Todd her blessing before he proposed at 1:30 am New Year’s Day. We’ll have to see how she feels when Kandi and Todd start popping out those babies in a couple years.
New Year’s engagement news isn’t quite over yet. We already told you one Atlanta housewife got engaged over the holidays but it turns out there was another proposal on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta” set. US Weekly just broke the news that Kandi Burruss and her boo of one year, line producer, Todd Tucker, are getting married!
Tucker, 39, popped the question on New Year’s Day, during a New Year’s celebration with friends at the couple’s home in Atlanta. (Among the party guests was fellow Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks, who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Apollo Nida.) After talking it over with Burruss’ daughter, 10-year-old Riley — who gave him her blessing — he got down on one knee and proposed to his love of more than a year with a two-carat diamond sparkler by Gregg Ruth.
The singer-songwriter, 36 — who has been engaged once before, to the late Ashley “A.J.” Jewell – was floored. “I was totally surprised,” she tells Us of the romantic proposal, adding that she even shed a few happy tears.
Awww! The couple reportedly already has a couple of dates in mind for the big day and is muddling over a few details like whether they will air their special ceremony for the world to see. As we all know, Kandi has had a rocky love life. Toward the end of 2008, she starting dating Ashley Jewel, whom she later became engaged to in January 2009. Sadly, on October 22 of that same year he past away from head injuries he sustained during a fight. Speaking on her struggle to find the man to finally settle down with, Kandi told US:
“I used to make jokes with my friends that I [was] part of the Forever Single Club.”
Now that she’s changed her mind about that, she’s also removing herself from the I don’t want anymore kids club, saying:
“That’s what I said before, but now I’m totally different.”
Congrats to one of our favorite housewives!
Last night, VH1 and Mona Scott-Young held a premiere screening of “Love & Hip-Hop New York” and we were there to catch all the ratchetness as it unfolded. I wish I could say some of the things we witnessed was just for the cameras but it wasn’t — most times they weren’t even rolling. That means what you see of these people when the third season premieres Monday night at 8pm is absolutely who they are in real-life — skin-tight dresses, drunken slurs, ragged weaves, stank attitudes and all. Though next week we’ll show you all our exclusive one-on-one chats with the cast members, we couldn’t wait to bust out the classic moments and insider info we peeped last night. Oh and here’s the super trailer in case you need a debriefing before you dig in. Happy ratchetry!
