Canadian singer Michael Buble will be getting hitched to his Argentinian girlfriend, actress Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre. That's a happy mouthful!

The two have been engaged for two months: "Michael proposed to his girlfriend, Luisana, in November, in front of her family in Argentina," his rep said.

"They're ecstatic. They're adorable, in love and laugh all day long."

Lopilato, a film and TV actress who stars in the hit Argentinian soap opera, Atraccion x 4, accepted his proposal – and loves the ring Buble gave her.

Congrats to Luisana Loreley Lopilato and Michael Buble!

"He designed the setting himself. He's very proud to be engaged to her," says a friend of the singer. "When they met, it was totally love at first sight."

Buble was previously engaged to his longtime girlfriend, singer and actress Debbie Timuss, but split up in November 2005. He also dated The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt for more than two years, but split with her in 2008.

There was supposedly a Michael Buble naked picture involved in that breakup. Either way, we're glad he's put that behind him and is engaged now!

Howard Stern's sidekick Artie Lange has been released from the hospital following an apparent suicide attempt last week, the New York Daily News reports.

The New York Post reported and police later confirmed that Lange stabbed himself nine times in the gut with a Wolfgang Puck kitchen knife a week ago.

Hoboken, N.J., Police Detective Mark Competello said that Lange's mother found him on the floor of his home January 2 and he was rushed to the hospital.

Competello said the 42-year-old comedian was unconscious when he arrived. Doctors cleaned the stab wounds and operated, and Lange has been released.

Earlier in the week, Howard Stern spoke out about his troubled friend on his Sirius XM radio program, but didn't reveal the reason for Lange's hospital visit.

Hopefully Artie Lange recovers quickly and fully.

"We all have our demons," Stern said. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man."

"Don't forget how great he is."

Addressing the matter a second time after the disturbing reason behind for Lange's hospitalization was revealed by the Post, Stern was livid over the leaked story.

Artie's family requested that the matter remain private and Stern obliged; Someone leaked the info to the Post, however, and his friend was understandably upset.

It's never too shocking when one of Hollywood's top train wrecks gets into a car wreck. What is shocking? Lindsay Lohan was neither drunk, nor driving!

Following a late night out Saturday, the alleged actress and fashion designer was involved in a car accident, an LAPD rep confirmed to E! News Sunday.

"Her car was involved in an incident last night. A report was generated," the rep said. "There is an investigation. That's all we can confirm at this time."

Lindsay Lohan was not behind the wheel of the BMW that hit a celebrity gossip photographer while leaving The Hotel Cafe, according to a TMZ report.

OLD HAT: Another day, another car crash for LiLo.

Her driver is reportedly under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon, but the troubled 23-year-old is reportedly in the clear ... for a change.

For Lohan, automotive woes are as familiar as getting robbed, feuding with her family, epic fights with SamRo or a night out partying with no pants.

Last May, she was riding shotgun when her driver crashed into a wall outside a hotel. In 2007, she battled both DUI charges and car chase charges.

Where will the train wreck crash next? Stay tuned!

Nicole Forrester who?!

One has to think that was the message Josh Duhamel was trying to send last week when he surprised his wife, Fergie, with a vow renewal ceremony.

The couple, who married exactly a year ago today, wed again Wednesday, with just the two of them and a minister just outside Santa Barbara, Calif.

"It was a total surprise for Fergie," a source said.

Duhamel whisked Fergie away via private helicopter. During the 15-minute ceremony, overlooking the ocean, Fergie was "crying and very emotional."

Fergie and Josh Duhamel have re-tied the knot!

Afterward, the couple had a romantic dinner at the resort's upscale Miro eatery, then returned via helicopter to Los Angeles with their renewed marriage.

In November, Forrester, an Atlanta stripper, alleged she had an affair with Duhamel while he was shooting the film Life As We Know It, a claim he denied.

Sources close to the couple say that enduring the ordeal, which was widely reported by celebrity gossip tabloids, actually made their marriage stronger.

Whether that's true or not, they're working hard on it!

The Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean is off the market.

Celebrating his 32nd birthday in Las Vegas Friday, he proposed to his girlfriend Rochelle Deanna Karidis on the stage of Hard Rock Hotel's Wasted Space nightclub.

"He got on stage and the DJ turned the music off. He asked her to come on stage and he got down on his knee and she squatted down with him," a source said.

"He asked her and she said yes and hugged him. He took the ring out of his pocket and put it on her." Congratulations to the couple on that awesome moment!

A.J. McLean gets engaged to Rochelle Deanna Karidis.

"She seemed very surprised and didn't seem to know why he was getting on stage," the witness adds. "Even his friends were shocked. They all knew he was going to propose but didn't think he would do it tonight."

We're guessing all parties approved of the decision, though!

Saturday Night Live ridiculed New York State Governor David Paterson once again last night, with SNL cast member Fred Armisen doing the hilarious honors.

As has been the theme in skewerings past, Paterson was depicted as having a difficult time finding the news desk and speaking erratically, to say the least.

He opened by saying, "Hello Yankee Stadium!" Informed it was not in fact the House that Ruth Built, the legally blind governor called it "classic Paterson."

When not making a mockery of himself, the faux David Paterson character relentlessly poked fun at New Jersey, a.k.a. the land of cologne and raccoons.

The Garden State is such a cesspool, Paterson opined, that the Jersey Shore cast is actually the cream of the crop. That would be pretty bad, indeed.

The latest skit is likely to again raise the ire of Paterson himself and potential of advocates for the disabled, whose criticism has not deterred SNL so far.

Does SNL go too far? What do you think of the David Paterson skit?

Looks like Jon Gosselin is once again spoken for - by Morgan Christie!

A 25-year-old from Greenwich, Conn., and now making her home in California, "She grew up very privileged, tons of money," one People source says of Morgan.

The former Emory University student is the mystery chick Jon reportedly met while skiing in Utah over the holidays. Some of Christie's relatives live in that state.

"Jon met Morgan over Thanksgiving while snowboarding in Utah. They've been inseparable ever since," said a source. "They talk and text throughout the day."

DA KING OF PIMPZ: Jon Gosselin has struck again!

A source adds that Morgan may have played a role, indirectly, in Hailey Glassman's alleged trashing of Jon's NYC apartment - supposedly triggered by his cheating.

Morgan Christie was actually with Jon when he found his apartment ransacked, but they "immediately drove to Pennsylvania" and crashed there after the incident.

Apparently things are going well between the two. Jon is supposedly determined to keep this relationship out of the spotlight. We'll believe that when we see it!

Little else is know about Jon's new piece at this time, but we're sure that will change soon. Follow the jump for a photo of Morgan Christie the Enquirer unearthed:

The famed Subway sandwich chain spokesperson popped the question to his girlfriend of one year, Katie McLaughlin, a teacher, last November.

"She's been so wonderful and caring. She's the most supportive woman," says Fogle, who proposed near Indiana University, their alma mater.

"I couldn't ask for more."

Congratulations, Jared the Subway guy!

Katie McLaughlin and Jared Fogle plan to exchange vows this summer. But not before Fogle gets back into shape after letting himself go a bit.

Dude gained more than 40 pound last year. Granted, that's a far cry from 245, but he's still disappointed in himself looking to run it back off.

"I look at it as a little bit of a hiccup," Fogle says, blaming "not exercising as much as I should and not paying attention to what I was eating."

Now on track with a disciplined 2,000-calorie-a-day diet, Jared Fogle is also training for a marathon this fall in an effort to keep up the fight.

"I'm going to look darn good in those wedding pictures!" he says.
