After a controversial courtship, brief breakup and dubious reconciliation, The Bachelor stars Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are still giving it a go.

The California winemaker, 29, and the model, 28, are moving in together at the San Francisco pad Flajnik shares with two pals, according to Us Weekly.

They're in the process of looking for their own place now, but before they find that nest, the pair went on a sexy vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

During their five-day break, Courtney Robertson has been showing off her famous figure in a tiny bikini, her shaggy man dutifully by her side at the pool.

Although Robertson has dealt with public disdain for her very, very bad behavior on The Bachelor, "she wants to save this relationship," a source tells Us.

Prior to the trip, an onlooker at San Francisco's Park Tavern observed the engaged pair looking "very snuggly... Ben had his arm around her the entire time."

Robertson is still wearing her 3-carat Neil Lane ring from Chris Harrison Ben, FYI. If they're going to crash and burn, they're giving it their best shot first.

What do you think: Any way this is gonna work?

Is there something you would like to tell us, Miley Cyrus?

Yesterday, the young singer/actress Tweeted a photo of her hand in support of a nail foundation - but talk surrounding the image had a lot more to do with diamonds than polish. How come? See for yourself:

Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been going strong for awhile, of course, with an insider recently telling OK! Weekly:

"They're still keeping it a big secret, but they're seriously talking marriage. Liam is crazy about her! Miley wants the whole nine yards as far as a big wedding goes."

And she'd be smart to lock Liam down ASAP. With The Hunger Games blowing up at the box office, he'll only become a bigger and bigger draw to other women out there.

No word yet from anyone in either Miley or Liam's camp confirming or denying this rumor.

UPDATE: It's true! As of June 2012, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth really are engaged!

Away from reality TV cameras and free to roam amid additional scrutiny from paparazzi cameras, The Bachelor stars Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are playing the loving couple in the aftermath of their controversial winter on ABC.

Things appear to be going well and relatively uneventfully ... mostly.

Ben, who recently shared his first public pic with Courtney, appears eager to prove the skeptics wrong and show that their relationship is the real deal.

  • Courtney Robertson Modeling!
  • Ben Flajnik's Long Hair

The reality couple put on quite the amorous (and camera ready) display when Ben picked Courtney Robertson up from the San Francisco airport last week.

They acted like lovebirds as they locked lips and cuddled publicly upon being reunited, her Neil Lane diamond ring still firmly on her finger, witnesses say.

However, the pair's PDA will undeniably be met with cynicism by some.

Last week during the After the Final Rose special, Ben Flajnik admitted the negativity surrounding the season caused them to break off their engagement.

While they've since gotten back together, The Bachelor duo was also later seen looking subdued and not exhibiting any affectionate body language.

Are they just going through the motions? Or are they more of a normal pair then we probably think, in spite of everything that played out on television?

The burning question: Will Ben and Courtney last?

Kelly Clarkson has insisted for a long time now that she isn't a lesbian, she's just never been in love with a man.

And now, after gushing to a Toronto radio station on March 6 that she has a "new boyfriend," Clarkson truly has the chance to put the gay chatter to rest.

Kelly Clarkson on SNL

Sources confirm to Us Weekly that the original American Idol is dating Brandon Blackstock, the 35-year old stepson of Reba McEntire and a Nashville-based talent manager. He's also the son of Clarkson's own manager.

"Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love," an insider claims. "[Brandon] is just what she needed."

Good. The talented singer deserves all the happiness she can get. Treat her well, Mr. Blackstock!

Alex Pettyfer and Riley Keough are engaged.

The actor - who has previously dated Emma Roberts and Dianna Agron - met the granddaughter of Elvis Presley (yes, that Elvis Presley!) on the set of Magic Mike, an upcoming film in which Pettyfer stars as one of several male strippers.

While Halle Berry continues to clash with her past boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, she can at least find major solace in what appears to be a bright future:

The actress really is engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez!

Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez

Rumors of a proposal first popped up in January, but neither actor nor actress commented on it at the time. The press simply went on the word of a jeweler who claimed to be responsible for the engagement ring.

But at the the opening of his restaurant in Miami last night, Martinez responded to a question about his impending by making it very clear: "Yes, of course it's true."

However, giving props to his ring's actual designer (Robert Mazio), Martinez did correct one aspect of the earlier story: "There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this."

Either way, we send our very best wishes to this beautiful couple.

Jionni LaValle is Snooki's baby daddy and apparently her fiance too.

Despite the fact that the Jersey Shore star hasn't confirmed either life development, the cat's out of the bag that he got Snooki pregnant (a Jersey City baby store has already been tipped off) and she's engaged to Jionni LaValle (she's wearing a ring).

Anyway, here are a few things we know about the "lucky" guy ...

  • Snooki and Jionni LaValle
  • Snooki, Jionni LaValle
  • Not a big fame seeker. Emilio Masella or Jeff Miranda, he's not. No tabloid deals, revenge hook-ups, no interest in Jersey Shore. Pleasantly surprising.
  • Not a juicehead. Snooki even admits she "wasn't sure about him at first because he isn't the typical gorilla." Yes, this was a potential negative factor.
  • He gets along with her family. Jionni went on a family vacation with Snook to Disney World and a road trip to Pennsylvania, fitting in with the Polizzis.
  • He's studying to be a teacher. Seriously. Like his two older brothers, Jionni is studying to get his teaching degree. Contributing to society? Amazing.
  • He cooked her pickle pancakes, she Tweeted. That may beat a diamond ring. Case closed - time to wife this guy up, Snooks. Talk about a keeper.
