There may not have been a rose ceremony, and it may not have taken place in front of any TV cameras, but reports indicate that Melissa Rycroft has been proposed to once again.

On Friday night, according to The Dallas Morning News, Rycroft and boyfriend Tye Strickland showed up at Brio Tuscan Grille in Southlake, Texas. They were joined by a pair of older couples, rumored to be each side's parents.

Together 4 Eva

This spring, Tye Strickland accompanied Melissa Rycroft to Dancing with the Stars training. Now, he'll accompany her to bed every night for the rest of their lives!

As a vase of fresh flowers sat on the table, whispers around the restaurant turned to the fact that Melissa and Tye got engaged earlier in the evening.

The newspaper cites sources that claim Rycroft was presented with a ring inside of a box that featured its own internal lighting (to make the diamond shine).

If this is true, the controversial Bachelor finale in March will have resulted in two happy endings: one for Rycroft and Strickland; and one for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are together and very much in love, according to THG insiders.

Christian publisher Zonder van looks like it's going to postpone the debut date of Kate Gosselin's next book, Love is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories.

It was due out in November. But that was before the grating star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 was in the middle of an ugly public divorce from husband Jon Gosselin.

A Jon and Kate retrospective looking back at the couple's 10-year marriage airs tonight as TLC tries to gloss over the nastiness of the past few months.

But the book jacket's promise of "an inside look at one of America's most close-knit families" doesn't have the quite same ring it used to now, does it?

The book was to feature Kate Gosselin's favorite recipes, along with her tips on eating organically and "meaningful mealtime blessings." Maybe now she can rewrite it with a recipe for humble pie. Ohh, snap, you got served there, Kate.

Grating

Jon and Kate Gosselin in what have become very familiar situations.

Postponing - or even outright canceling - the book will undoubtedly hurt both Kate Gosselin and the publisher right where it counts, on the bottom line.

But Maureen "Moe" Girkins, the CEO of Zondervan, now says that the publisher plans to "work with Kate to reassess the schedule for her next book."

Kate's first two books published by Zondervan, Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets and Eight Little Faces, were bestsellers.

No word if the publisher has acquired the rights to Deanna Hummel's forthcoming memoir, Hummers by Hummel: How I Seduced Jon Gosselin.

It's hard to imagine who would by a cookbook by Kate at this point, but who knows. Maybe she can put out a calendar of her bikini photos instead?

Fred Travalena, the Las Vegas cutup and late-night TV stalwart known as "The Man of a Thousand Faces," died Sunday at age 66 after a long battle with cancer.

According to news reports, Fred Travalena passed away at his Encino, Calif., home from non-Hodgkins lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with in 2002.

He also was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003, after which the funnyman spent five years in remission before the lymphoma returned last July.

Travalena's master mimicry ran the fame gamut from Frank Sinatra, Jack Nicholson, Bugs Bunny, Dr. Ruth, Clint Eastwood and Bruce Springsteen to presidents like JFK and Richard Nixon. He boasted of having nearly 400 voices in his repertoire.

Fred was featured on shows ranging from The Jetsons and Scooby-Doo to The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson, The Late Show With David Letterman and The New Hollywood Squares. He also made appearances on Love Boat and Fantasy Island.

Fred Travalena is survived by his wife of 39 years, Lois, two sons and a granddaughter. Our condolences go out to his family, as well as to the families and friends of Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays and Michael Jackson.

"Wussup everyone???? Its the new Mrs. Hank Baskett!!!!!!!!! ahhhh hahah ahahha!! I cant believe im a married woman! yayyyyy. Just wanted to make sure u all remember that theres a brand new episode of KENDRA tonight!"

That was Kendra Wilkinson, celebrating Saturday's fairy tale wedding to Hank Baskett and plugging her reality show last night as only she can. Poignant.

Just be glad you just have to read that and not actually hear her laughing.

No Kendra Wilkinson wedding pictorial has been released, but it was "a wedding fit for a princess" at the L.A. Playboy mansion, according to witnesses.

Here's a nice overhead shot of Hank Baskett marrying Kendra's cleavage ...

Wedding Cleavage

BASKETT CATCH: Kendra Wilkinson grabs a man - for life - in Hank.

Among the guests in attendance were Kendra's former boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, his three current girlfriends (the Shannon Twins and Crystal Harris) and scores of other Playboy bunnies he has more than likely boned. Heartwarming.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, who starred with Wilkinson in The Girls Next Door, were bridesmaids. Hefner was originally going to walk her down the aisle, but Wilkinson changed her mind and her brother Colin did the honors.

About 500 guests, including many Philadelphia Eagles teammates of Hank's, in all were on hand as the pair exchanged vows on the front lawn of Kendra's old home.

The newlyweds jetted off to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia for a nine-day honeymoon Sunday. Here's hoping they party with Amy Winehouse while they're there.

Turn away, Twilight fans!

In the photos below, Robert Pattinson is giving a large stuffed animal to a woman that is NOT Kristen Stewart!

** UPDATE: Phew. We're being told the woman in the following pictures is Emilie de Ravin and the images are courtesy of a movie she is filming with Pattinson, Remember Me.

It doesn't seem like Stewart has anything to worry about... unless certain reports from the film's set are to be believed. A witness told Life & Style:

"[Robert and Emilie] both seemed to be having a great time and looked genuinely happy to be working together."

This is causing extreme heartbreak for Stewart because, in the words of a Twilight insider: "Rob flirted with Kristen when they were filming, so she can't help but wonder what he's doing with Emilie."

Uh-oh. As you click on the pics below of Pattinson and de Ravin, let us know: Do you think these two are hooking up?

Billy Mays, who took the art of the TV sales pitch to a new level, died of an heart attack Sunday morning, Florida authorities close to the situation revealed.

A medical examiner in Florida says Mays showed no evidence of head trauma, despite being struck on the head on board an airliner that made a rough landing.

That flight took place on Saturday night.

The TV advertising guru arrived home safely, despite the difficult landing, but Billy Mays was found dead early Sunday morning at his Tampa house.

Preliminary autopsy results show that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease, Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Vernard Adams said.

Infomercial king Billy Mays (1958-2009).

Toxicology and tissue tests will take several weeks before a final cause of death is issued, he said. But the autopsy showed no evidence of trauma to the head, either external or internal, despite Billy Mays hitting it on the plane.

The autopsy showed that Mays' heart was heavier than normal because the left ventricle had enlarged, a symptom of heart disease, Adams said, also noting that investigators had ruled out prescription drug abuse as a cause of his death.

Billy Mays was taking prescription painkillers Tramadol and hydrocodone for hip pain, but pill counts showed that Mays had taken the correct amount.

As the head judge on Dancing with the Stars, Len Goodman is tasked with handing out 10s to the best performances each week.

Following Goodman's recent admission that he's battling prostate cancer, though, allow us to reverse roles and deliver a top score to this brave dancing expert.

The 65-year old was diagnosed in March, but he told Britain's The Daily Mail that the disease was found early and, following surgery, he feels "right as rain."

Instead of removing the cancerous tumor immediately, Goodman actually continued his role on Dancing with the Stars for two months, critiquing Melissa Rycroft, Gilles Marini and others without showing any signs of the discomfort he was experiencing.

"I could have said 'sorry' and not done the show, but the doctors felt I wasn't riddled with it and it wasn't so far advanced that it was a life-or-death scenario," Goodman told th newspaper. "It takes a few weeks to get everything set up for the operation anyway, so I went ahead and did the show. I had the surgery done as soon as I got back from America."

Feeling fine, Goodman points to the major downside of his cancer scare.

"You can't play golf, which is the biggest blow at the moment."

A guardianship petition has been filed for Michael Jackson's children by 79-year-old Katherine Jackson, the late superstar's mother, according to reports.

She is asking the court to appoint her the guardian for all three kids. The petition states the kids have "no relationship with their biological mother."

That would be Debbie Rowe, in the case of Michael Jackson's older two children, Michael Jackson, Jr. (a.k.a. Prince Michael Jackson) and Paris Jackson.

The biological mother of his youngest child, Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a. Blanket) is not known, and believed by most sources to be a surrogate.

According to the petition, the three children of Michael Jackson are in the care of Katherine Jackson and they have "a long established relationship."

Michael Jackson's three children have been under the care of his mom Katherine (left) since his death Thursday. The future role of his ex-wife Debbie Rowe is unclear.

Katherine Jackson thinks it would be "best" to appoint her guardian of the star's offspring because they have been and are "comfortable in her care."

Debbie Rowe is named as mother of two kids (ages 12 and 11) in the petition. The petition says the value of Michael Jackson's assets is unknown.

As for Prince Michael II, Michael's third child, in the box where it says "mother" the box is checked "none." His DOB is listed as January 21, 2002.

The petition says it's "not known at this time" whether the mother (Rowe) will seek custody or if she agrees Katherine should be the legal guardian.

UPDATE: Katherine has been granted temporary guardianship of Michael's three kids. A hearing August 3 will determine if it will be permanent.

Amazingly, our headline above does not refer to the Leighton Meester sex tape, but to an entirely different kind of video involving the Gossip Girl actress.

Leighton has teamed up with the band Cobra Starship on its new single, “Good Girls Go Bad,” starring in the music video and singing one of the verses.

"Good Girls Go Bad" is the first single from Cobra Starship's new album Hot Mess. The song was co-written by Kevin Rudolf and American Idol's Kara DioGuardi.

An aspiring singer who's working on her debut album, the Gossip Girl star holds her own on what may very well become one of the summer's hit songs.

Quite literally, in his case. It was cold in there.

Asked in a new interview with Men's Health about the nude photos taken of him by photographer Greg Gorman in 2000, "To me, it's funny at this point. Whatever. It's done," Josh Duhamel says. "It was very cold in the studio, by the way."

Josh Duhamel Picture

Duhamel, who last week said aloud what many have been thinking (that Perez Hilton deserved to get punched by Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina), claims that his friends were skeptical of him going on the cover of Men's Health.

"You're going to be in Men's Health?," he recalls them saying. "You?"

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star tells the fitness magazine that he wants to be remembered for his talent, not just his rugged good looks.

The actor also talked up married life – he tied to the knot with Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas in January – even if it means having to dodge press.

The 36-year-old also wants to start a family soon.

"I want to do good work, but having kids and a quality life outside of that is important," Duhamel tells the magazine. "If you don't have anybody around who loves you, then what's it all for? You're just lonely in the end."
