Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Such a proclamation is not coming this time from an unreliable supermarket tabloid, or from convoluted Kanye rap lyrics, but from someone supposedly very much in the know:

Ryan Seacrest!

Executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Seacrest said on his KIIS-FM radio show late last week that he thought West would propose during the couple's trip to Italy over the weekend.

"I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday," he told co-host Ellen K.

During an American Idol taping in Charlotte last night, Nicki Minaj lost her collective $hit on fellow judge Mariah Carey, cursing her off and, according to some reports, even threatening the life of this pop music icon.

You can listen to parts of the exchange below:

During his radio program this morning, Ryan Seacrest acknowledged that a confrontation took place and explained it as such:

THIS... is your American Idol host for at least the next two years.

Fox has announced that Ryan Seacrest inked a new deal with the network yesterday and will remain at the helm of TV's highest-rated show through 2014.

“For the last 11 seasons, I’ve had the privilege to be a part of one of television’s most iconic shows,” Seacrest said in a statement. “It’s been a wild ride, and I’m excited for my journey with American Idol to continue. The legions of fans, amazingly talented contestants, judges, and producers, along with the hard working Idol crew, impress me every time we go on air and make hosting the show a dream job.”

Seacrest, easily the busiest man in show business, will also help cover the Summer Olympics on NBC in June.

Will Ryan Seacrest be taking over for Matt Lauer on The Today Show?

The American Idol host addressed that rumor this morning... to Matt Lauer on The Today Show.

After joking about taking both Lauer's job and that of weatherman Al Roker, Seacrest revealed that, yes, he has signed a new deal with NBC Universal. But Lauer can rest easy.

"The plan is for me to join the NBC family and continue to have a role at the E! network," Ryan said. "The first assignment will be to join the prime time team for the Olympics on NBC."

From there, who knows. But one thing is certain: this appearance by Seacrest will garner far less criticism for The Today Show than yesterday's ratings stunt of having Sarah Palin co-host.

Pitbull is invoking a new line of attack in his legal battle with Lindsay Lohan, noting that he name-checked Ryan Seacrest in the same song and was NOT sued!

Lohan is suing Pitbull (along with Ne-Yo and Afrojack) for dissing her in his hit song "Give Me Everything." She claims the lyrics caused her "irreparable harm."

Pitbull says in court papers that he not only rapped about Seacrest, but was invited to perform the song on a New Year's Eve show ... hosted by Seacrest!

Translation: Seacrest has a sense of humor, Lindsay does not, and the entire basis for a lawsuit based on a song lyric is completely frivolous nonsense.

Pitbull's "harmful" lyrics in question: "Money keep flowin' / Hustlers move aside / So, I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin' / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan."

Pretty funny stuff. Later in the song, he raps, "I'm an American Idol, gettin' money like Seacrest" ... so Ryan's shout-out is a bit more positive. Minor details.

In addition to the Ryan Seacrest Defense, Mr. Worldwide also cites the lesser known First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in his bid to get the case dismissed.

In November, Regis Philbin is expected to exit the seat he's occupied for decades.

So, who will banter with Kelly Ripa every morning on her ABC talk show? Disney insiders claim "it's ridiculous at this point to be speculating about who will replace" the TV legend, but The Wall Street Journal reports three names have emerged as contenders:

Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen and Mark Consuelos.

Seacrest already holds down more jobs than anyone in Hollywood, whole Consuelos is married to Ripa (who joked with David Letterman recently that the couple would "kill each other" if they co-hosted), so we say the gig goes to Cohen, the host Bravo's "Watch What Happens: Live."

Who do you think should replace Regis?

Although they have been positively smitten with each other since they began dating, Julianne Hough is denying reports that she’s engaged to Ryan Seacrest.

It was claimed that the hardest working man in Hollywood was going down on one knee as “things are really heating up between them,” a source revealed.

“We have never seen him like this before," a Ryan source adds. "For the first time ever, he is taking a second away from work." Now that is serious, indeed.

Seacrest out ... of the dating pool for good?

"We never thought he would meet anyone he liked as much as work, but now he has. Ryan’s parents adore her. She is smart, beautiful, funny and most important, she has made their son happy. They are just waiting for him to pop the question.”

They can wait a little longer.

“Well,” Julianne Hough told Entertainment Tonight when asked about Seacrest’s imminent proposal plans, “that’s news to me, and I think it’s news to him.”

Oh well. The American Idol host and Dancing With the Stars alumn started dating this year and have managed to keep their romance low-profile. Keep it up!

The new American Idol team has been together for about a half hour, and there's already a report of dissention on set.

A source tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest are engaged in a power struggle over such pressing items as who gets which dressing room.

“Ryan was the one who first suggested Jennifer, but now he’s starting to regret it, because she’s acting like she’s a much bigger star than he is,” said the insider. “Ryan knows the diva behavior is likely to get worse before it gets better. Producers are trying to get them to make peace, but their egos are both pretty big.”

American Fight-ol: It's reportedly J. Lo. versus Ryan Seacrest!
