Teen Mom star Maci Bookout got the surprise of her life on Twitter last week.
A marriage proposal. From oft-estranged baby daddy Ryan Edwards, no less.
After calling it quits with racer Kyle Regal and former beau Kyle King this year, Maci is single again – and Ryan apparently wants to put a stop to that. For good.
Whether she takes him up on that idea is another story entirely.
“Marry me!” Ryan Edwards tweeted. Bookout’s response?
“ur s–t got hacked BRO! outta ur mind haha,” she said.
Did his s–t get hacked? Not according to him. The ex-couple continued going back andMore >
Seriously, legal system?
While the jury did its job in delivering yesterday’s John Edwards verdict based on the (lack of) evidence, it’s hard not to be frustrated when a shady character walks.
“Not guilty” doesn’t mean he’s innocent – a fact that Edwards basically admitted outside the courtroom yesterday, though he maintains no laws were broken).
Nevertheless, that’s hardly a consolation for some observers. Even animals can’t hide their disgust for the disgraced politician. Case in point? This parrot:More >
A federal judge told jurors in the John Edwards trial that they must continue deliberating, just moments after the jury announced a verdict – on one of six counts.
The courtroom was briefly thrown into confusion this afternoon in Greensboro, N.C.
All sides were told a verdict had been reached, but once in court, the jury announced it had only reached a unanimous verdict on Count 3 of the indictment.
On the other five counts, the jury was deadlocked. The Count 3 verdict was not read.
Edwards’ defense team asked the judge to accept the verdict on Count 3 and declare a mistrial on otherMore >
John Edwards denied his affair with Rielle Hunter to the American public but would not do so in a sworn affidavit, while his mistress wanted to claim she was abducted by aliens, according to the latest dispatches from his trial.
Mark Kornblau, who worked as John Edwards’ spokesman and issued a strong denial that succeeded in keeping the Enquirer‘s story about Edwards’ pregnant girlfriend from being picked up by the mainstream media, testified this week.
Kornblau said the story “would be a terrible outcome for Mrs. Edwards. I believed it to be untrue. Thirdly, it would be damaging to theMore >
John Edwards has a life-threatening heart condition, sources confirm to CNN.
The National Enquirer reported New Year’s Day that Edwards had sought to delay his trial for criminal corruption, scheduled to begin later this month, due to the condition.
Looks like that was true. Lawyers and a federal judge met in a North Carolina courtroom Friday for a status hearing regarding the pending trial of the former U.S. senator.
Edwards appeared in person at Friday’s hearing. The motion for a delay was made under seal, but some details were publicly revealed by the judge in the open hearing.
If you knock up Rielle Hunter (and make a sex tape) while your wife’s terminally ill, then use her cancer to win sympathy from voters while seeking your party’s nomination for President of the United States, you are a pretty bad person.
Still, John Edwards says, he didn’t do anything illegal.
With daughter Cate Edwards standing behind him, he pleaded not guilty to using campaign money to cover up his affair and love child with Hunter.
“There is no question that I’ve done wrong,” the two-time former presidential hopeful said outside the federal courthouse in Winston-Salem, N.C.
“I takeMore >
With John Edwards facing a federal indictment over his alleged use of campaign funds to cover up his love child scandal, new details of his affair with Rielle Hunter and the sex video they made during his White House run are coming to light.
Specifically, how pissed he is that she didn’t erase the f%*king tape!
In an amazing outburst, the disgraced politician reportedly exploded after a judge ruled portions of his testimony under oath would be made public.
Edwards reportedly put it to Rielle Hunter on tape in a hotel room in Indianapolis in 2007. She was already several months pregnant atMore >
The United States Department of Justice is ready to throw the book at former presidential candidate John Edwards for alleged violations of campaign laws.
The alleged crimes took place as the former U.S. Senator tried to cover up an extra-marital affair and love child, revealed in ’08 by the National Enquirer.
Edwards is aware that the government intends to seek an indictment and is considering his (limited) options. He could accept a plea deal of some kind.
The government contend that huge donations made to his presidential campaign were used, illegally, to support and seclude hisMore >
Rielle Hunter and John Edwards are not engaged.
Despite a report this week that John put a ring on it, “the reports are false and he is not engaged,” a family spokesperson said earlier today.
Sheesh. How dare people assume an upstanding individual like John would ever pull such a move. It’s not like he’s some cad who cheated on his terminally ill wife and knocked up Rielle Hunter while running for U.S. President. Oh, wait …
NOT ENGAGED: John Edwards, Rielle Hunter and their young daughter Quinn may be together someday, but not today. Check back this time next week.

(HMG Celebrity News) – Somebody is making a really ill timed proposal, be it marriage or publicity. The National Enquirer is claiming that John Edwards proposed to his baby momma and mistress Rielle Hunter over Christmas vacation? The supposed proposal comes after Elizabeth Edwards, passed away last month after a battle with cancer, and a report that came out yesterday that John Edwards was left out of his wife’s will for obvious reasons. The Enquirer has some credibility, because they broke the original story, and otherwise it might never have been revealed that the former presidentialMore >
Talk about a parting shot. Elizabeth Edwards cut her estranged, cheating husband John out of her will less than a week before passing away.
Elizabeth, who died last month after a courageous battle with breast cancer, left everything in her sole possession to their three children.
Cate Edwards, a 28-year-old lawyer and the pair’s eldest child, was named as the executor of her mom’s will, according to Inside Edition.
John Edwards was not mentioned even once in the document.
PERSONA NON GRATA: John probably had this one coming.
Edwards, who was 61, signed the document on December 1 – sixMore >
Will Rielle Hunter become the next Mrs. John Edwards? Does National Enquirer have absolutely no shame? It’s definitely possible and absolutely, yes.
Elizabeth Edwards passed away less than a month ago, and already, the notorious tabloid is playing up Hunter’s possible marriage to John Edwards.
It was the Enquirer, of course, that blew the lid off Edwards’ affair and love child with Rielle Hunter back in 2008. So we suppose you can’t rule this out:
NO SHAME: The Enquirer is pushing it with this one. On the flip side, John Edwards might actually be callous enough to pull a move like this.More >
It’s one of only two guarantees in this world, so when a celebrity leaves us, it’s never entirely surprising. But that doesn’t make it any less tragic.
From household names to those we barely got to know, and from aging stars to those taken far too soon, we bid farewell to so many in 2010.
Here’s a list of notable celebrity deaths of 2010. If we left anyone off, it was just a mistake, not a snub. Leave a comment and we’ll add them:

In the final days before Elizabeth Edwards’ death, daughter Cate gave her mother the happiest of news: She was engaged to longtime sweetheart Trevor Upham.
The couple, who met as students at Princeton, got engaged over Thanksgiving after spending the holiday at the Edwards family’s Chapel Hill, N.C., home.
“Elizabeth was thrilled,” a close friend told People.

Political leaders and Hollywood celebrities alike are paying tribute after the death of Elizabeth Edwards, who lost a six-year battle with cancer Tuesday.
The lawyer, author and mother of three was just 61.
Having separated from John Edwards after three decades of marriage and following his affair with Rielle Hunter, her passing is even more poignant.
