HouseGoesHollywood: Courtney Cox engaged!


Celebs never fail to serve up the scandals, week in, week out.

This time around it’s a DUI, a supermodel booty call, and a slew of TMI selfies. What is it with celebs oversharing on social media? They’re usually whingeing about wanting more privacy …

Ah well, enjoy! Or tsk … whatever your poison …

But let’s start with some happy news:


>> Congratulations! Courteney Cox has announced she’s engaged to boyfriend and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. Both respectively tweeted on June 26: “I’m engaged to him!” and “I’m engaged to her!”

The couple were introduced by singer Ed Sheeran and have been dating since December.


>> Jessica Simpson shared a saucy snap of herself on her Instagram page, lying down on the back seat of a car, captioned: “Hiding from the paparazzi, so why not pose for Eric?”

Fiance Eric Johnson has been with Jessica for four years and the couple have two children together.


>> Meanwhile … Jennifer Hawkins shared a stirring pic of herself in a hotel room in Melbourne, captioned: ‘Melbourne! @jakewwall #fun #weekend #pounce…’


>> And then, for some bizarre reason, Kelly Osbourne decided to bare her butt on Instagram. She captioned the shot: “It’s not a #FullMoon but it feels like one! Good luck everyone tonight!”


>> Never one to be left out, Kim Kardashian took a shot of what was ostensibly her new hairdo, but which instead appeared to expose her nipple. She initially captioned the picture “It’s baaaaack!!!! #BlondeHairDontCare thanks to @SergeNormant” but then admitted, “It’s just a wig. Looks so real though right?”


>> Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown shared a snap on Instagram of herself in a bathtub, with the caption “bath anyone?”

>> The Sydney Morning Herald has claimed that Miranda Kerr recently spent time aboard billionaire James Packer’s luxury yacht, Arctic P, off the coast of Cyprus, near Greece.

One of the clues was a photograph she shared on her Instagram account that shows her working on a laptop computer in a room with decor that resembles the yacht.

An insider told the SMH that Miranda was aboard the Arctic P to persuade James to invest in her skincare range, Kora Organics.


>> Well of course you hire a ferris wheel for your daughter’s first birthday. At least that’s how parties go down in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s world.

Their baby North officially celebrated her birthday on June 15, with a family celebration in New York, but the couple decided once wasn’t enough.


So, a week later, they organised a ‘Kidchella’ themed celebration, loosely based on the annual Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival held in California, guests dressed up in bohemian festival attire and a mini stage was set up for karaoke.

Grandmother Kris Jenner shared pics of the day on Instagram later in the day, which was held at daughter Kourtney Kardashian and partner Scott Disick‘s home in Calabasas.


>> Tammin Sursok is the latest actress to make a social media statement by posting a shot of herself breastfeeding.

She strokes her seven-month-old daughter Phoenix’s head in the photo, while the caption tells her followers that breastfeeding is “nothing to be ashamed of”.
