Celebrity of the Week (Bekah Haynes) 

Fashion designer and former reality show star Lauren Conrad announced her engagement to William Tell last weekend. Conrad made the grand announcement by flaunting a picture of her engagement ring on her blog. As friends and fans show her nothing but love and support, many can’t help but wonder if the timing of the engagement is related to the wedding of her former reality show co-star and ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler that took place just one day earlier. Could the timing be just a coincidence, or could it be a competition between the two exes?

Sightings (Bekah Haynes)

According to US Magazine, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted attending a Barry’s Bootcamp class in Sherman Oaks. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star has been known to attend these classes in order to lose her extra “baby weight” that she gained during her pregnancy. Later that same night, Kardashian and her daughter, North, went to support West at his late night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The couple and their daughter have been seen out together in Los Angeles many times and are known for being extremely supportive of one another.
