"We're marrying, we're totally gonna do it," Stewart said on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show. "I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We're marrying, it's happening."

The news of their engagement comes more than a year after Stewart told Stern she couldn't "f**king wait" to propose to the 33-year-old screenwriter. "I think good things happen fast."

The pair first met about eight years ago on a movie set, but didn't reconnect until they bumped into each other at a friend's birthday party in 2019.

Stewart (right) played actress Jodie Foster's daughter in the thriller "Panic Room" in 2002. Foster, 58 (left), came out as a lesbian at the 2013 Academy Awards.

Stewart will next portray the late Princess Diana in the movie Spencer.

Stewart was born and raised in Los Angeles. She rarely saw her parents, John Stewart and Jules Mann-Stewart, who worked long hours as a stage manager and script writer respectively.

Stewart began acting at age eight, after an agent saw her perform in her elementary school's Christmas play.

Actress Raven-Symoné, who is openly lesbian, said she had "no need" to make her "Raven's Home" character a lesbian.

The former child star of That's So Raven - which ran from 2003 to 2007 on the Disney Channel - reprised her role of Raven Baxter in the series that launched in 2017.

The reboot follows an adult Baxter and her best friend Chelsea Daniels, played by Anneliese van der Pol, as they move in together as divorced single mothers.

Raven-Symoné, 35, said she had conversations with Disney producers who asked whether she wanted her alter ego to reflect her lesbian lifestyle.

The sitcom star - who came out as a lesbian in 2013 - knows her audience and she knew that making her character a lesbian probably would not be well received.

The Atlanta native, pictured with her mom and brother in 1996, insisted her decision wasn't because she wasn't "proud" of her sexuality. She said she didn't feel depicting the character as a lesbian would be a true reflection of who she was.

"There was a conversation before the series started and I was asked the question, 'Would you like Raven Baxter to be a lesbian?' And I said, no," she told the Pride podcast on Wednesday.

Raven-Symoné said her audience was smart enough to separate her private life from her fictional character. Being a lesbian in real-life doesn't mean she should be typecast to play one on TV.

"The reason I said no wasn't because I wasn't proud of who I was, or I didn't want to represent the LGBTQ+ community in any way. It was because Raven Baxter is Raven Baxter is Raven Baxter.

"There was no reason for me to change the human that she was in order to fit the actress that played her. And Raven Baxter is a character that I was proud to play, even if she is straight, cisgender, I don't mind. Let her have her moment."

The former "Cosby Show" star said she didn't mind her character missing out on male love interests in the show.

"She was divorced though, and I had no worries about saying, 'No boyfriends,'" she laughed.

A woman who claims to be Megan Thee Stallion's ex lover is coming forward with details of their alleged romance.

Instagram model Yasmin Estrada, pictured left, took to IG Live on Tuesday night to share torrid details about her alleged ex-girlfriend.

Yasmin Estrada, who was reportedly drunk, started pouring hot tea in her IG Live. Surprisingly, Megan was among the millions listening to Yasmin. MTO News confirmed that Megan was also commenting on Yasmin's Live.

The busty Latina said she and the "WAP" rapper broke up because Megan, who is male-identified, refused to be faithful to her.

Yasmin explained that Megan Thee Stallion, who is bisexual, began sleeping with male rappers before her rap records took off.

"Megan was in love with d**k more than she was in love with me," said Yasmin.

Yasmin still lusts after Megan and she often writes subliminal messages to her on Instagram. In one post, Yasmin wrote: "You used to be texting me, checking me, calling me your slime."

Megan, who was raised by a single mom, has previously confessed to dipping her toe in the lady pond.

Yasmin and Megan are still friends, and Megan generously lavishes gifts on her ex. But the curvaceous stripper says she would prefer to give her ex a private lap dance whenever she's in town.

Da Brat opened up about her intimate relationship with Atlanta entrepreneur Jesseca Dupart on the season premiere of "Growing Up Hip-Hop."

"There's so much going on in my life and my world right now," the 46-year-old rap artist said. "Recently, I decided to let y'all in on my life a little bit, you know what I'm saying?"

The "Funkdafied" rapper, whose relationships rarely last longer than 3 years, said the Coronavirus lockdown made her and 38-year-old Jesseca's bond stronger.

"I think we're a great couple together. Quarantine can make you or break you and we are still here, baby. So we must be doing alright. And it feel good to be happy out loud."

Da Brat is self-conscious about her weight gain as her body transitions into menopause.

After the two women met in Atlanta, Brat said she initially didn't want Jesseca to "look" at her for "too long" because she didn't want to expose her many "imperfections."

"I was just real nervous and scared," she said. "At first I would hide behind furniture when she would talk to me. I would cover up my face when I laughed."

"It was the cutest thing ever," said Jessica.

"Like nobody probably would ever expect me to act like that," Da Brat added.

Anne Heche (right) said her three-year lesbian romance with Ellen DeGeneres (left) ruined her movie career.

Heche met DeGeneres at a Vanity Fair party in 1997 and the pair soon began dating, but she admits her highly-publicized relationship with the comedienne deeply affected her career.

"My movie premiere for Volcano, I had told them (producers) that I was taking Ellen as my date and I was told if I took Ellen I would lose my Fox contract," she tells People magazine.

"At that moment, she took my hand and said, 'Do what they say' and I said, 'No thanks'. I took Ellen to the premiere and I was ushered out before the movie even ended and was told I was not allowed to go to my own after party for fear that they would get pictures of me with a woman.

"She was warning me, 'This is going to happen'. I was in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres for three-and-a-half years and the stigma attached to that relationship was so bad that I was fired from my multi-million dollar picture deal and I did not work in a studio picture for 10 years."

DeGeneres and Heche split in August 2000 and Heche gave up the lesbian lifestyle.

Heche, 51, married Coleman Laffoon in September, 2001. She then moved on to a romance with actor James Tupper.

DeGeneres, 62, tied the knot with actress Portia De Rossi in 2008.

Months after (finally) coming out of the closet as a lesbian, rapper Da Brat claims she had a close personal relationship with former NBA star Allen Iverson and Rasheeda's promiscuous husband, Kirk Frost (not at the same time).

Da Brat, 46, was recently interviewed by RHOA cast member Kandi Burruss on "Kandi Online." The rapper, real name Shawntae Harris, claims she once dated Iverson, but she chose not to make the relationship public.

She swears she cooked and ironed his clothes for him and she even gave him a hand when he woke up in the morning.

"I was like, 'This is it!' But then I think you know, basketball players? (expletive)," she said. "He had a baby mama, some kids. He had a lot of stuff going on."

Da Brat had a lot of things going on, too. She was at the peak of her career as a rapper, and she lived in Atlanta with her steady girlfriend. But I digress.

Da Brat's revelations probably left her fiancée, Jesseca Dupart, scratching her head. Da Brat does have a habit of getting touchy/feely with men. But that may be because she lacked a father figure growing up.

Is Da Brat just attention-seeking by claiming to have intimate relationships with emotionally unavailable men? Or is she confused about her sexuality?

Niecy Nash insists she wasn't "coming out" of the closet when she exchanged vows with stud lesbian singer, Jessica Betts.

The 50-year-old actress and comedian insists her relationship with Jessica has nothing to do with her gender.

The Reno 911! star tied the knot with the singer, months after divorcing her 2nd husband Jay Tucker in March.

She announced her relationship status in a post on social media last month, revealing her new name.

"Mrs. Carol Denise Betts," she captioned an Instagram photo.

 

Niecy was also wed to Don Nash, the father of her three kids, from 1994 to 2007. Ironically, Jessica sang at Niecy's wedding when she exchanged vows with Tucker in 2011.

Jessica, 38, sang to Niecy when she guest-starred on an episode of Claws in 2018.

Now Niecy reveals she never hid her sexuality and she isn't "coming out" of the closet because she was never in one.

"(My marriage) has absolutely nothing to do with gender and it has everything to do with her soul," Niecy tells People magazine. "She is the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life."

Niecy, Carol Denise Ensley, stopped short of admitted she is bisexual.

"I was not suppressing my sexuality my whole life," she said. "I love who I love. At one point in my life, I married twice and I love those people. And today I love this person. I've done everything I wanted to do on my own terms and my own way. So my choice now in a partner has nothing to do with who I've always been. It's a matter of who I am in this moment."

And Niecy doesn't consider her wedding announcement a "coming out" moment, adding, "It's rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love. And I'm not limiting myself on what that love is supposed to look like."

Niecy and Jessica first connected on social media in 2015, when Nash was married to Tucker.

"(Jessica) and I were friends, but I never saw her as someone I would date," Nash recalls, recalling that she had a change of heart after the couple split. "But we began to see each other in a way we never had before."

Jessica is best known as the winner of Missy Elliott's Road to Stardom reality competition series in 2005.

Singer/songwriter David Crosby hit back at fan speculation that he only served as "sperm donor" for lesbian rocker Melissa Etheridge, 58, and her ex-partner Julie Cypher.

Etheridge's son, Beckett Cypher, died Wednesday of an opioid overdose after struggling with drug addiction for years. He was 21.

Crosby, a co-founder of Crosby, Stills & Nash band, donated sperm so Cypher (left) could conceive son Beckett and daughter Bailey Cypher.

Etheridge, Crosby and Cypher were featured with their children, Bailey and Beckett, and Crosby's wife, Jan Dance (left), on a 2000 cover of Rolling Stone magazine as an example of a modern family (below).

Crosby, 78, took to Twitter.com on Thursday to dispute allegations that he only served as the sperm donor and was not actively involved in his children' lives.

One fan wrote: "I respectfully point out, David was their donor... They did not have a son 'with' him. He was Melissa and Julie's child. They raised him. Like most donors, he played no other part."

Crosby responded: "Not true."

In a 1994 interview, Etheridge told The Advocate about her plans to have children with then partner Cypher.

She said she hoped having children would help society overcome their fears of homosexuals raising children.

"I think one of the many fears people have about homosexuality is around children. I think that the more gay parents raise good, strong, compassionate people, the better the world will be," she said.

But Cypher and Etheridge split in 2000. Etheridge went on to have twins in 2006 with new partner Tammy Lynn Michaels. They broke up in 2010 after dating 8 years.

Cypher has been married to a man, Matthew Hale, since 2004.
