This is going to be one stylish wedding: Nate Berkus, interior designer extraordinaire and Oprah’s style guru, popped the question to boyfriend Jeremiah Brent, Rachel Zoe’s former assistant, on a vacation to Peru. Us Weekly reports the couple has been dating just over eight months. David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris better look out: These two might become the most attractive married gay couple in Hollywood.

Katy Perry sells Brand mansion
Katy Perry is quickly unloading any remnants from her marriage to Russell Brand, including the Hollywood Hills home he bought in 2011 and then relinquished to her following their divorce, according to Us Weekly. Perry is listing the seven-bedroom, 11-bath home for $6.925 million. It sits on a three-acre compound near the Chateau Marmont.  I’d love to see the inside of their house: Does anyone else imagine the interior of it being covered in black leather with various candy motifs scattered throughout?

Tom Cruise on Holmes split
Tom Cruise is finally opening up about his divorce from Katie Holmes, which caught most of Hollywood off-guard. And it turns out it caught Cruise off-guard as well. “I didn’t expect it,” he says in an interview with German TV station ProSieben. “To be 50 and to have experiences and to think you have a grip on everything, and then it hits you — this is it, what life can do to you. Life is a tragicomedy. You need to have a sense of humor.”

Liza Minnelli to the rescue?
Lindsay Lohan was nearly given quite the talking to by Liza Minnelli late last year when the legendary singer was reportedly approached by a Lohan pal to stage an intervention, according to Radar Online. Lohan’s friend, Claus Hjelmbak, was the one who is said to have reached out to Minnelli. “He was so concerned for her well-being because of her continued use of prescription pills and booze,” a source says. “Claus thought that if anyone could get through to Lindsay, Liza could be that person.”  You know, if Liza Minnelli thinks you’re doing too many drugs, you probably are.

Actress Betty White named America’s most appealing celebrity
Betty White has been named America’s most appealing celebrity, according to a market research firm. The 91-year-old topped such stars as Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, Adele and Dame Maggie Smith on the list, according to Reuters. No word on what the definition of “appealing” is here. Do I want to know? Do you know?
