WEEK IN REVIEW: Nicole, Keith Engaged?
Plus: Jen sees Paltrow's point on Brad, Dana Reeve feels "great," and more
URBAN SETTING: Nicole Kidman – who has been seen with Keith Urban since July, though there’s been no acknowledgment of a relationship – was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger while walking arm-in-arm with the country star in Boston on Nov. 11. While Kidman’s rep didn’t know anything about a marriage proposal, Urban’s rep, Paul Freundlich, told PEOPLE: “Right now it’s just a rumor. When and if there’s a statement we’ll make that public.” Still, by the looks of it, the fellow Aussies are in full-on romance mode, sharing cozy meals and trips to the countryside, including a stop near Urban’s Nashville home. Kidman has also been a fixture on Urban’s “Keith’s Alive in ’05” tour, and the two “were inseparable,” said a source close to the singer, who on Tuesday was named the Country Music Association’s entertainer of the year.
PITT-FALL: Jennifer Aniston told GQ magazine that she agrees with comments made by Gwyneth Paltrow – another ex of Brad Pitt‘s, though the two never married – that Brad and Jen fell into a trap of their own device, of having to undeclare their love after having declared it. “She?s absolutely correct,” said Aniston. “I feel like there is a graveyard of celebrity couples who now have learned their lesson. You know, at the time you go, ‘Celebrate it – we?re in love, and let’s talk, and who cares?'” As for the best thing about being single, the former Friends star pointed to her Malibu beach house and exclaimed, “Well, this is all mine,” and then added with a laugh, “I guess you could say that I get to date again, which is ? dreadful.”
REEVE REMARKS: Making her first public appearance since announcing in August that she’s suffering from lung cancer, Dana Reeve said Thursday, “I feel great.” Speaking at the annual fund-raising gala for the Christopher Reeve Foundation in New York City, Reeve, 44, added, “Surprisingly, I’ve been responding so well to treatment. The tumor is shrinking and shrinking and shrinking.” Reeve credited her late husband, Christopher Reeve, with helping her find the strength to fight her disease. “I was married to a man who never gave up. He taught me so much about courage and about going forward. He really was in this with me.” As for the couple’s son Will, 13, she said, “He’s an incredibly upbeat kid. He is the definition of resilience.”
WEDDING BELLE: Kimberly Stewart and MTV’s Laguna Beach hunk Talan Torriero are getting married, the reality star’s publicist confirmed to PEOPLE. “He’s engaged,” according to Torriero’s rep, Jack Ketsoyan, who says the pair have been dating for two months. Late Wednesday night, Stewart, 26, and Torriero, 19, showed up at an XBox 360 party at a private home in Beverly Hills, where Stewart showed off her 5-carat diamond Neil Lane engagement ring to buddies Paris and Nicky Hilton. A friend of Torriero’s tells PEOPLE: “He told me he really likes her and they’re having a good time.”
Together again, and in public, too: Jude Law and Sienna Miller were both at this week’s Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, Casanova. Though they walked the red carpet separately, Miller confirmed to the Associated Press about the off-again relationship, which apparently is on-again: “Well, it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?” Elaborating, she said that “it’s just fantastic to have him here and support the film. We’re working things out. And he’s always and will remain my closest friend in the world, so, you know, so it’s good.” Admittedly, she added, “Yeah, we’ve had a rough ride, so that is good ? That’s very good.”
