Drew Barrymore’s Engagement Ring Bling

 

Drew Barrymore’s engagement ring finger is once again sporting a diamond – and if her official engagement photo is any indication?

 

The third time may just be the charm…

Drew’s hunky art-consultant fiance, Will Kopelman, put a stunning colorless, 4-carat, radiant-cut stunner on the 36-year-old actress over the holidays, according to USWeekly.com.

“He’s madly in love and knows she’s The One,” a source told Us in October, adding that the actress was “yearning to get married and have kids.”

Tonight, a longtime holiday tradition continues in New York’s Rockefeller Center with the 76th annual tree lighting ceremony. While New Yorkers like myself know better than to brave the crowds in midtown until well into next year, tourists and tree-lovers alike flock to the landmark to take part in the festivities every year.

Jewelry hounds will be happy to note that the glittering star on top of the 8-ton, 72-foot Norway spruce is a miracle in and of itself. The Swarovski sparkler weighs in at a whopping 550 pounds, is over 9 feet tall and is made of 25,000 glittering crystals. What a way to ‘bling’ in the holiday season!

Tony Bennett, Harry Connick, Jr., Jamie Foxx and Beyonce are among the entertainers scheduled to perform, and Britney Spears is expected to officially ‘light’ the 30,000 energy-efficient LED bulbs that sit on over 5 miles of wire.

Other important guests include a Pascagoula, Mississippi family whose new home was built in part with lumber from last year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, an 84-foot-tall Norway spruce.

Light for the holiday season, and light at the end of the tunnel. A wonderful sentiment and a glittering way to mark the official start of the holiday season.

NBC will air the entire ceremony tonight at 8pm.

From train wreck to triumph, Britney Spears is on her way to making the biggest comeback the pop world has ever seen. The former teen queen spent a successful weekend in Europe where she picked up a coveted Bambi award and performed for the first tine since her disastrous appearance at 2007’s Video Music Awards.

And that’s just the beginning.

It seems like yesterday Spears was known for flashing the paparazzi, shaving her head bald, getting carried out of her home by paramedics and skipping child custody hearings to go on shopping sprees.

But in her documentary, Britney: For the Record, which aired on MTV last night, she opens up about the tough times. How her relationship with Justin left her ‘devastated’, and how she married Kevin Federline for the ‘wrong reasons’.

You can say that again.

In a particularly revealing section, we get to see first-hand how trapped she feels being chased by the paparazzi day and night. It is anything but glamorous.

Fairy godmother, Madonna, made a wonderful cameo, where she admits that if cameras had followed her every move when she was Britney’s age trying to make it in New York, the world would have seen her make a slew of bad choices too. She counsels us that some of Britney’s decisions were misguided; others were just a part of growing up.

And motherhood? You can tell the separation from her sons has taken its toll. But it’s clear she loves them and is trying her best to do what the court is ordering her to do. To keep her sons close to her heart, Britney has been spotted wearing a “Key to My Heart” sterling silver and Swarovski crystal pendant necklace engraved with her sons’ names.

It’s not the same as full custody, but it’s a nice gesture.

So with the world cheering her on, Britney’s new album, Circus, is sure to be a big a hit. Available this Tuesday (on her 27th birthday), the star will perform on Good Morning America to kick off the media blitz.

Hit us, Britney, one more time.

We all waited with bated breath. Will she stumble over her words? Will she attempt to dance? Or (gasp!) sing? Will she no longer have the Miller Lite paunch and the chin acne? Much like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Miss Britney Spears did herself proud at the VMAs on Sunday night. And a nation breathed a sigh of relief.

Stunning in a pair of diamond drop earrings, Brit Brit took home three coveted Moon Men and made nary a misstep as she introduced the show and gave quick, heartfelt acceptance speeches.

Before the show, the red carpet revealed more diamond divas as Pink dolled up in Neil Lane diamond and platinum bangle bracelets, black diamond flower earrings and a diamond Right Hand Ring.

Diamond wrist-wear was the bling of choice for Lauren Conrad. Paris Hilton and model, Bar Rafeli, worked the statement necklace trend and the big earring brigade included Spice Girl, Mel B, Cristina Aguilera, and reality star, Brooke Hogan.

While the fashion impressed, the show itself got mixed reviews. Host, Russel Brand, created controversy over his spat with the Jonas Brothers and their virginal promise rings. What is he going to do? The trio practically threatened to give MTV a Disney make over with their sweet little three-part harmonies and floppy hair cuts. Sorry, America. I ain’t buyin’ it.

Or maybe Russel and I just miss the days when you might see Nirvana’s bassist clubbing himself in the face with his own guitar, or that guy from Rage Against the Machine climbing the set fixtures. I’m just saying…
