Ugly Betty star America Ferrera’s amazing year just got better – her boyfriend has proposed to her. The Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Best TV Comedy Actress award winner is quietly planning a wedding after longtime sweetheart Ryan Piers Williams asked her to be his wife last month, according to publication Life & Style.
The low-key couple met at film school in California, and Ferrera won her man’s heart when she agreed to star in one of his student movies.
**UPDATE: Despite Internet reports to the contrary, a spokesperson for “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera say that the actress is not engaged.
The Golden Globe winning actress is reportedly dating longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams. Reports say he popped the question last month.
In an e-mail sent to The ShowBuzz Thursday, Ferrera’s rep, Carrie Byalick, said Ferrera “is not engaged.”
Boston-born actors and The Departed co-stars Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg are set to star in a new film about boxer ‘Irish’ Micky Ward. Paramount Pictures has fast-tracked “The Fighter,” a drama about the Massachusetts-born boxer’s unlikely road to the world lightweight title.
Ward had a series of tough losses to Arturo Gatti that are considered among the best and most brutal bouts of the past 50 years. Wahlberg would play Ward, with Damon taking the role of Danny Ecklund, Ward’s half-brother who battled drugs and the temptation of crime to become the boxer’s trainer.
House executive producer Paul Attanasio is currently working on a rewrite of the script, and if approved by Wahlberg and Damon, the picture would begin shooting in Massachusetts this summer.
Felicia Culotta, the 41-year-old former assistant to Britney Spears is reportedly sending a heartfelt plea to her old boss to cut the crap and get back on track.
According to Thatotherblog.com, Culotta and several others close to the 25-year-old singer are already preparing for the inevitable trip to Wonderland.
Below is an excerpt from a letter the site claims to be from Culotta:
I LOVED being with Britney for the past 9 1/2 years. I enjoyed being a part of HER dream, but now, am living my own dream. I cherish ALL the incredible opportunities that came my way thru my job with Britney and am crushed/saddened/heart sick by the way her life is unfolding…I want you to know that WE (as in her Family and nearest and dearest—ALL of whom are NOT on the payroll anymore!!) are doing EVERYTHING in our power to get help for Britney and all in our power to NOT pad the bottom or move the bottom, so when she does indeed hit rock bottom, she’ll stand up and walk away from this whole fiasco a new, confident, changed, career driven Britney like we all knew and loved.To see what’s transpiring now, makes me feel a failure, defeated. I LOVED and BELIEVED in what I was a part of for the past 10 years and was so incredibly proud of Britney and all she’d become.
A rep for Spears could not be reached for comment.
