FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
If only the cameras were still rolling! Former Hills star Lauren Conrad, 27, got a big surprise Oct. 11 when her boyfriend of almost two years, law student William Tell, 33, popped the question after first getting permission from her parents. “I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend,” she posted on her blog, along with a photo of her new diamond ring. “I am beyond thrilled!”
No doubt: Conrad’s dating dramas were well-documented on the MTV reality show. After being linked to Brody Jenner and actor Kyle Howard, Conrad, an author and lifestyle guru, met Tell, a former rock musician, through friends on Valentine’s Day 2012. In August she posted a gushing blog about her boyfriend: “Just looked at the calendar and realized it was a year and a half ago today that I met this guy … And I sure am glad I did.” Now the bride-to-be is focused on her big day. (“Get ready for lots more wedding content [on my blog] as we begin the planning process,” she teased on her site.) “Everyone is so happy for her,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He’s such a great guy.”

Are the Jo Bros soon to be the No More Bros? Performing at a concert in Minneapolis on Oct. 8, the trio “didn’t seem like themselves. They were kind of lethargic,” an onlooker tells Scoop. “They didn’t interact at all onstage.” The very next day, the brothers shocked fans – and the rest of their band – by announcing they were canceling their upcoming 19-date tour due to a “deep rift in the band” over their musical direction, according to their rep. (Depending on what the insurance policy for their tour covers, the brothers could be on the hook for millions of dollars.) After the blowup the three were spotted in different states: Kevin, 25, in New Jersey; Nick, 21, in New York; and Joe, 24, in California. Now they’re planning to convene in L.A. to try to “figure out their way forward,” says a source close to the band. “What that means musically is still very much up in the air.”
