Think you've reached your celeb gossip limit for 2011? What, with all the Kardashian krazyness and pregnant pop star tidbits you've been devouring this year, you think you can't handle one more morsel of celebrity goodness? Well, loosen that belt up one more notch, kimosabe, because word on Internet Lane is: Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are engaged.
The details (and the truth) are yet to be disclosed, but Jackson-based Tayloe Piggott Jewelry confirmed rumors that Timberlake popped the question to his lovely girlfriend Monday night at luxury Wyoming resort, The Amangani, by writing on their Facebook page: "Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night. We're picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool."
If it turns out to be true, yay/congrats/mazel tov to the happy couple. But, also ... weird.
Aside from never looking like the happiest couple in town (I know, snap judgement), didn't the two break up not that long ago? To be honest, I wasn't even positive that they were 100 percent back together. And now they're engaged? If they're one of those couples who needed time apart to realize that they were the ones for each other, good for them. But, let's be honest, that's rarely the case.
I'm of the mind that if a couple breaks up, it's for a good reason. Something wasn't right, something wasn't working. And time apart doesn't necessarily heal that. Sure, it can make you miss the person and realize some things, but the problem(s) still remain. They're just not being seen because you're not together.
This is just my opinion, though. It's how my love history has gone. Maybe Jessica and Justin worked on their problems and went to therapy while they were on a break. Maybe they've gotten to the root of things.
I hope so. Because it's always sad when couples break up or get divorced. And, let's be honest, we're all in dire need of another celebrity wedding.
Do you think Justin and Jessica will make it for the long haul?
