  • Whatever is going on between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus has made one thing very clear: She's still rocking her ring. [People]
  • Jeff Probst on that one time he went on his first and last date with Katie Couric: "What I remember most about the date is how nervous I was and how little I offered to the conversation. It was like I forgot how to go on a date." Ouch! [Us Weekly]
