Third time lucky may be?
Wynonna Judd, the Country music star is not engaged to Cactus Moser. He proposed to her on Christmas Eve. They had been dating since 2009.
For 47 year old Judd, this is the latest chapter in her life.
She suffered from health issues last year and also an accident. She then got a grip and lost a whopping 55 lbs. She even reunited with her mother after 10 years.
“I feel more alive,” she had said back then.
This is going to be her third marriage. She got divorced in 2007 from D.R. Roach and in 1998 from Arch Kelly III, a businessman. She had two children from her first marriage.
It was indeed a season full of drama! The X Factor was a show loved by many and eventually, it came down to the three finalists: Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene. The final was held on Wednesday and the winner won a whopping $5 million recording contract.
The founder and judge of the show Simon Cowell said that the final three were the best group in any signing competition. However, he backed his mentee Melanie Amaro firmly on Wednesday and said that she deserved to win.
Well, SHE DID!
At one point of the competition, the 19 year old singer was sent home and then re-called!
“Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh my god!” was the only thing that escaped her lips as she fell on her knees to pray with tears streaming down.
“America, thank you for giving this girl an opportunity,” Simon said for her. “She is a star.”
“Thank you so much!” Melanie finally said. “I don’t know what to say. Thank you. God is good.”
The Duggar family is huge and grieving is also exceptional in this family. There are just too many kids to console. Michelle Duggar mis-carried her 20th child and she said that while she is being comforted by her husband and her older kids, she has to console her younger kids.
She said that when her 7 year old son Jackson asked about his little sister who was to be named Jubilee Shalom, she had to explain about the loss and soothe him.
“I told him there is going to be a day when we are going to be together again,” she said. “As the days go on,
I know we will have time to talk through all this. I have been trying to hold my composure and do what I needed to do, and then be able to grieve.”
Even the older kids are going through a very tough time. Her 20 year old daughter Jill had a particularly hard time as she was the one who was charting Jubilee’s heartbeat and growth. She is currently studying to be a mid-wife.
“She was crying and weeping last night,” Michelle said. “I hugged her and said, ‘I am holding on, and I am going to let the tears go. We can pray, cry and grieve together in the weeks and days we walk through this.’ ”
“My older girls have been precious to make Momma take care of Momma right now, and Jim Bob has been busy taking care of everything,” she added.
“Our calendar is cleared off, and we are going to take time to talk and pray and cry,” Michelle explained as she said that despite the loss, all the December birthdays will be celebrated with joy. “This is going to be a time for our family to just be together.”
Fatherhood did not scare Matt Damon.
When he got married to Luciana back in 2005, he became step-father to her daughter Alexia who was then just 4 years old.
“I jumped into the deep end with Lucy. I mean, Alexia was already 4. I was an extra dad,” Damon, 41 said.
Since then, the couple have had three daughters: Isabella, Gia and Stella.
“The only way I can describe it — it sounds stupid, but — at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you know how his heart grows like five times?” he explained. “Everything is full; It’s just full all the time.”
He may be a huge celebrity but he managed well to keep his family away from focus.
“I’ve been left alone, even by the paparazzi, because what sells is sex and scandal,” he said. “Absent that, they really don’t have that much interest in you. I’m still married, still working, still happy.”
Days are extremely tough for Taylor Armstrong right now as she is seeing it all right from getting physically abused to the suicide of her husband and of course the whole public scene of everything that is going on on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She now says that she wants to support her friend Kim Richards who has faced a lot herself on the personal front. Richards is currently in a rehab.
“I adore Kim and I stand behind her,” Armstrong told when she was interviewed by Andy Cohen Monday night on his Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live. “And if there’s anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she’s getting healthy what more could we ask.”
Mindy McCready continues to be in the news.
She has been insisting that she did not kidnap Zander, her 5 year old son on one hand while on the other, it has been reported that she is pregnant with twins.
The father of these twins is however unknown.
According to the police, she had picked Zander up from her father’s place on Tuesday and the mother-son duo has been invisible since. Mindy McCready has a history of suicide attempts, stints in rehabs and a jail visit. She does not have custody of her son but she can visit him.

Their characters may have had a happy ending together in Melrose Place but not in real life. However, the break-up for Jack Wagner and Heather Locklear seems to be quite friendly.
“Still love each other very much,” 52 year old Wagner said. They announced o Tuesday that they had called off their engagement and it was apparently for their families.
They barely had time for their kids because of their wedding and they also thus decided that because their kids were too young, blending them together would be disruptive.
Wagner has two sons with Kristina Malandro – Peter and Harrison who are 21 and 16 years old. Loclkear has one daughter, 14 year old Ava from marriage with Richie Sambora.
“Ava was so excited when we told her,” Locklear had previously said. “She hugged Jack, said congratulations, and she immediately wanted to see the ring. Then she ran and Facebooked her new stepbrother.” This comment seems to contradict what Wagner claimed.

Rock Center with Brian Williams airs at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on NBC.
Justin Bieber has decided to give away his pet snake to the highest bidder for charity.
Bieber showcased his pet Boa Constrictor, Johnson during the MTV Video Music Awards black carpet back in August.
The peach colored reptile is now going to be auctioned on the sitecharitybuzz.com auction site. The estimated value is $1,000.
The money will be given in charity to Pencils of Promise which is a non profit group. The group has built over 30 schools round the globe.
The reptile is still a baby and that is why Johnson looks tiny. However those who are planning on bidding should know that he will grow for sure. “It’ll get, like, four feet. It’s gonna get big,” Bieber said. The auction will run until 29 November and sitecharitybuzz.com says that the winner will be screened once the auction comes to an end.
A 20 year old woman came out in the open and claimed that Justin Beiber is the father of her 3 month old son. The 17 year old singer however denies it downright.
“Never met the woman,” he says.
“I’d just like to say, basically, that none of those allegations are true,” he added. “I know that I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim.”
The woman Mariah Yeater claimed that a body guard had whisked her away and “shortly thereafter, Justin Bieber suggested that I go with him to a private place where we could be alone,” in her court reports.
She wants financial support from Beiber.
“It’s crazy,” Bieber said. “Every night after the show I’m gone right from the stage right to the car, so it’s crazy that some people want to make such false allegations.”
He added, “To set the record straight, none of it is true.”
