Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez are still engaged. Phew.

Going on five-plus years now, he's learned a few things about engagements, such as let the bride handle most details of their wedding – except for a few.

"I just care about the food and the music, that's it," the NBA star told People, celebrating his 26th birthday with his fiancée at Philippe in W. Hollywood.

While he has yet to choose specific songs, the Denver Nuggets forward wants "some great music for dancing," and is also requesting red velvet cake.

The red is part of a grander idea: "We don't really have a theme yet," says former MTV veejay LaLa Vazquez, "but Melo is just certain that he wants red."

It seems to work well with the man ...

LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony are getting married next month.

Of course, having a wedding planner who "does everything and makes it so easy" takes the heat off LaLa. "[It's] like no pressure whatsoever," she said.

The actress has picked out a Vera Wang gown and is working out with celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson "every single day" for the nuptials, set for July 10.

What it means [is] having that one day to just be together and have a good time," she says. "I think we're fun people, so the vibe is going to be fun." 

Especially now that LaLa's hair grew back. That would have been interesting. The couple has a son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, born on March 7, 2007.

Ian Ziering is officially spoken for! Again!

The former Beverly Hills: 90210 star married love Erin Ludwig at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, Calif. on Friday, just as the sun was starting to set.

The couple exchanged vows on a gazebo overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Celebrating with the couple were several 90210 alumni and significant others:

  • Jason Priestley and his wife Naomi
  • Jennie Garth and her husband, Eclipse star Peter Facinielli
  • Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox, who were said to be  "very affectionate" during the bash, according to reliable observers quoted by Us.

Congratulations to Ian Ziering and Erin Ludwig!

The pair spent their first married night together at a villa on the Pelican Hill property. Their next door neighbors for the night? Jessica Alba and Cash Warren on one side, Britney Spears and Jason Trawick on the other.

Wonder if Jamie Spears had an adjoining room too. Kidding!

Ziering announced his engagement to Erin Ludwig in February of this year. A romantic photo of the actor sharing a champagne toast with Ludwig (who wears an engagement ring) is captioned, "So in love with my love am I." What a romantic.

The star split from first wife Nikki in 2002 after five years.

It's been a busy week for Miley Cyrus.

She has sung about Nick Jonas in Portugal, blabbed to Billboard magazine about her new album and bashed Fox's Glee, along with musicals in general.

In between, Miley has rocked a few different looks, both on stage and on the street.

First, it was the retro, bathing suit-type outfit; then, your basic, black leather; after that, Cyrus actually resembled a 17-year old again, greeting fans in France.

WHICH LOOK IS HER BEST?

  • Poor Fashion Choice
  • Miley in Black
  • In France

Ever since it was reported over the weekend, The Hills fans and celebrity gossip readers across the world began pondering the obvious question:

Is Heidi and Spencer Pratt's shocking breakup for real?

Yes, says Heidi's rep, who confirms the separation, effective early last week, to Us Weekly, but explains that nothing legal has been filed ... yet.

"Heidi is going through a difficult time and hopes people respect her privacy," the rep hilariously says, as if Heidi ever sought privacy in her life.

A friend says the Heidi Montag-Spencer Pratt split was her idea, though "there are no plans for divorce. They are going through issues. It's a hiccup."

The source claims Speidi was blindsided by TMZ's Friday report, which divulged that the 'Tag was moving out. Controlling the press no more!

"She was bummed that it came out," the pal says. Heidi, who's said to be moving in with Jen Bunney, "wanted things to be more settled first."

The Bunney, an aspiring doctor who's in a long-distance relationship, will also be filming the world's worst reality show with Heidi ... supposedly.

Together, their lives' "huge turning points" will be featured, Jen says. "Is [Heidi] going to be a single, independent woman or stay with Spencer?"

"We know fame is fleeting, and that fame is not going to support us for the rest of our lives. We need to make smart decisions right now."

Wait ... Jennifer Bunney is supported by fame now?

The recently-resurfaced, one-time minor Hills player also says Heidi felt an obligation to the MTV show to stick it out until the show wrapped.

Otherwise, she might have left Spencer earlier. According to Bunney, Heidi has not made up her mind on whether she'll divorce her hubby.

Stay tuned. And pick your side:

Jaden Smith is the son of one of the biggest movie stars on the planet.

As a result, he's starring in a remake of The Karate Kid, one of the most beloved films in cinematic history.

But in case it wasn't clear that Jaden was the luckiest youngster in Hollywood, consider this: he duets with Justin Bieber on the flick's theme song, "Never Say Never."

Let's just hope Smith didn't touch Justin at any point during their time together. We know how much the singer hates that...

According to multiple sources, there's no longer any question over whether or not Charlie Sheen will spend time in jail for his Christmas Day assault against wife Brooke Mueller.

The troubled actor is most definitely headed to the slammer. Sheen is prepared to agree to a plea bargain that will include approximately 30 days behind bars.

"Charlie intends to go to court on June 7 [to] plead to a misdemeanor and immediately begin serving his 30 days in jail," said an insider. "With good behavior, he could end up doing 15 or so days."

Let's all hope Charlie Sheen gets up close and personal with fellow inmates in a very different way this month.

Incredibly, Sheen had the option of avoiding prison and accepting probation - but he actually deemed probation too risky, which is basically a case of the star admitting that he can't remain out of trouble.

The actor will go to Aspen next Monday, enter a no-contest plea to third degree assault and have his felony menacing charge dropped.

In the end, for allegedly holding a knife to the throat of Mueller, Sheen will receive a pay raise from CBS and spend about two weeks in jail.

Ain't justice grand for celebrities?

In sad and unexpected news from the political world, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper Gore are calling it quits after four decades together.

The environmental advocate and his spouse have announced, via an e-mail to friends, that they are separating. Their 40th anniversary was just last month.

"We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate," stated the e-mail, first obtained by Politico.com.

"This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

The Gores' brief, joint statement concluded: "We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further."

Married since May 1970, Al and Tipper Gore are splitting up.

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, The Associated Press reports, but declined to elaborate on the matter.

Al Gore became the highest-profile advocate for environmental and climate change issues since losing the 2000 Presidential election by a razor-thin margin.

Tipper Gore is known for advocacy on mental health issues, and for an active role in the Parents Music Resource Center during her husband's time in office.

Al, 61, and Tipper, 60, have four grown children: Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Al Gore III. We wish the spouses and their kids the best in this tough time.

It's a matchup of self-centered celebrities in this edition of the THG Fashion Face-Off!

In one corner, we have Tyra Banks, a recently-retired talk show host that made every episode of her gabfest about herself.

Opposing Tyra, there's Kim Kardashian, who will pimp out her nephew and guzzle down QuickTrim if it means she can be featured on magazine covers.

Fortunately, we're not asking readers which of these annoying celebrities sucks more - because that would be difficult to answer. Instead, we're posing a fashion-based question below, based on the dresses they are donning here:

Tyra vs. Kim

Who looks sexier in this dress?

Sarah Palin is understandably far from pleased that writer Joe McGinniss rented the house next door to her while authoring a book about the former governor.

But stalking allegations? Really, Sarah? That's pretty low ... but from someone who demands straws that bend at speaking engagements, are you shocked?

McGinniss said on the Today show this morning that despite accusations from the political lightning rod, he's not harassing them. Quite the opposite, in fact.

"If I lived here and did something creepy, if I did what Sarah Palin is suggesting, that would be creepy," McGinniss said. "I'm not observing them at all."

"I don't care what they do in the privacy of their own home," he continued. "I'm here to talk to people who have known them for 40 years in Wasilla."

McGinniss claims he got a good deal on a rental that happens to border the Palins' property, and would have taken it if "Sarah Palin lived on the moon."

WELCOME TO WASILLA! Sarah Palin is far from pleased with her new neighbor.

True or not, the 67-year-old writer is next door, leaving the maverick concerned for her privacy and questioning McGinniss's motives ... on Facebook, natch.

"Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" Sarah Palin wrote online.

McGinniss denies he did any of that, or that he is trying to drum up publicity for his book, claiming he told no one outside his family where he was living.

"Then Sarah hysterically puts up this Facebook page with all sorts of ugly innuendo, which frankly is revolting," he says. "She has created all the publicity."

McGinniss, known mostly as a true-crime writer, has reportedly received death threats thanks to Palin triggering outrage from right-wing media outlets.

Palin "unleashed the hounds of hell," he says, comparing her tactics to that of Nazi troopers in the '30s. Maybe he should send over a nice fruit basket?
