Will Packer

Film producer, and friend of the blog, Will Packer proposed to his longtime love, Heather, in a major way over the weekend. Packer, who is currently producing Think Like a Man Too in Vegas, surprised Heather by dropping to one knee in front of 40,000 at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

"We actually met four years ago, here at ESSENCE. I need y'all to help me out," Will asked the crowd as he brought his girlfriend out onstage. "Heather, you’ve changed my life. I love you so much. You make me happier than words can express," said Will as the audience roared.

Will presented Heather with a custom 10K diamond ring as she wiped the tears from her eyes. "She said yes ya’ll!!" said Will after Heather stopped jumping up and down.

Congrats to the happy couple! 4 years is surely long enough for the Dopamine to wear off. Read the full text of Packer's heartfelt proposal to Heather after the break.

I got a tip last week from a loyal reader who told me that FOX news cameras were spotted peeking in NeNe's windows (my loyal reader lives in the neighborhood).

I knew it had something to do with NeNe Leake's much-publicized eviction from her rental home. It turns out NeNe and husband Greg Leakes weren't even evicted -- they left on their own. But sadly, that's not juicy enough for gossip mongers.

Anyway, NeNe and the rest of the cast of Atlanta Housewives will join NBA baller LeBron James tomorrow night at the Velvet Room. NeNe will be celebrating her birthday which proves that she's too Grand to be stressed, baby!
