It is a dream comes through for Kaley Cuoco, the star of Whirlwind: Big Bang Theory, as she gets engaged to Ryan Sweeting, her rep confirms. But the big question is, is this yet another celebrity’s hoax? For Kaley Cuoco, it is not. Even though their dating lasted just for three months before the engagement, she is pretty sure that Ryan Sweeting was the man. She tweeted not long after Ryan proposed to her, “Flying high, I could literally touch the sky with you….” A source closed to her confirming this excitement of her, told Us Weekly, “It’s only been months but she knows Ryan is the one. When you know, you know.”
Ryan is a Fort Lauderdale-based tennis player, 64th in rank in 2011 with a tournament win in Houston. Presently, his rank is 518th in the world with just one match he played in 2013. He proposed to her three days after the Emmy Awards which saw the pair together. But the big questions are, can this feeling last forever? Is this yet another celebrity’s hoax?
With the trend of break ups among celebrities, one can hardly be sure whether celebrities’ engagements are another extension of their entertainment roles. A classic example is that of Bass singer Nicki Minaj, 30 and the rapper DJ Khaled, 40. DJ Khaled with his $500,000 ten-carat diamond proposed to Minaj. People thought it was for real but later Minaj will admit that the proposal was nothing close to real but was an effort to sale Khaled’s album suffering from poor sells. She said, “I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world ‘cause Khaled is a master at what he does. Nothing in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like, ‘LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy’… Khaled is my brother and was not serious with that damn proposal, y’all. Please let it go. He was kidding. He’s not attracted to me, he doesn’t like me. We’re brother and sister. ”
The list of celebrities that have broken up after their engagement is endless. 20 year old Miley Cyrus and 23 year old Liam Hemsworth, 25 year old Robyn Rihanna and 24 year old Chris Brown, Kaley Cuoco even made the list when she broke up with her former boyfriend, Henry Cavill. Some celebrities do make it beyond engagement to the altar. But just like the others, will still either separate or divorce. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries looked like it would have been better if they were only engaged than to marrying and divorcing almost immediately. Perhaps this is a lesson celebrities should learn from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who really knew that what love is, is not ceremonies around it but the true feeling of one in it. And that is why they were able to live closely this years without so much bothering themselves about marriage.
Kaley and Ryan should take a leaf from this now the engagement is over. Marriage is not the priority, love is. Expect perhaps, they are starring for us another celebrity’s engagement and marriage hoax and watch it, Kaley had had a break up before.
