(Bauer Griffin) Joey Essex and Sam Faiers
I love these two—and now they're engaged! The Only Way is Essex stars Joey Essex and Sam Faiers celebrated their engagement last night—and the official moment will be aired on Wednesday night's episode of TOWIE. ‘"I'm going to ask Sam to marry me but I always said I wouldn't want to do it on the show," Essex once said. "We'll definitely be married by next Christmas. I could definitely plan it myself in that time." Congratulations to the gorgeous couple. [Heat]

No, kids and teens want double beds because they need somewhere to put their electronics! Like laptops. In bed. [Daily Mail]

Do you guys watch Mad Men and other shows on AMC? You know how the network's tag line is: "Story Matters Here"? Well, they're about to change it—to "AMC: Something More." What do you think? Not funny enough to be an April Fools' joke, right? [THR]
