Paris Hilton is engaged to Chris Zylka, are you surprised?

Paris Hilton told us her boyfriend Chris Zylka was the one and by gum, it looks like he is. Chris apparently popped the question on a romantic snowy hilltop while the two celebrated the New Year in Aspen, Colorado. They were just grabbing some lunch when he dropped to one knee and pulled out a pear shaped diamond the size of a small country to ask if Paris would spend the rest of her days with him. Fortunately for the couple and all of us, there just happened to be a professional photographer in that exact same location who was able to capture not only the moment but Paris’s acceptance and the kiss that sealed the deal.

The official story is that the couple was posing for a photo and Chris completely surprised Paris with a proposal. No, for real. Paris said, “I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!” So, see? Super surprised. No, that is pure sarcasm. Paris has been telling us for months that they couldn’t wait to get engaged and get started on a family. She also mentioned how much work the planning of her wedding would be, and I don’t doubt her engagement was included in that planning. Even if it wasn’t Paris herself, somebody told Chris the time and place to show up with a ring. I don’t doubt they are happy about planning their wedding and couldn’t wait to tell the world about it but no one in this scenario was surprised by anything.

Not to mention – the ring. That is a 20-carat pear shape diamond Chris presented her with. Exactly how much did he earn while on The Leftovers? If you click through the photos in her Instagram, the sixth picture displays the ring beautifully, which I am guessing is not a coincidence.

It’s a stunning ring. I mean, it’s huge and would get in the way of must household chores but let’s face it, that’s not something Paris spends a lot of time worrying about, is it? Still, my gawd the stone is spectacular. Paris was impressed too, “The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen.” In Paris’ defense, she doesn’t say where she saw it first. Could you imagine walking around with that thing in you pocket? I’d have been shaking too. Oh, and if that number ’20-carat’ is ringing bells to you, that’s because that is the same sized ring Paris’ frenemy Kim Kardashian received as a gift from Kanye West and then, tragically, had stolen during the Paris robbery.

Regardless of whether or not this proposal was a surprise, congratulations to the couple for getting what they wanted. My personal feelings about Paris aside, I cannot wait for this wedding and all the selfies we’ll get during the planning. This will be nothing short of epic. And considering how she packs to work in Ibiza, can you imagine how she will pack for a honeymoon?

    I am feeling happy today.

    So congratulations Paris. No snark.

  2. Lora says:

    Holy that is one ugly ring in my humble opinion

    • yiza says:

      seriously it looks like a spaceship or something. horrible display of conspicuous consumption, and I enjoy a celeb ring as much as the next gal. But this is next level.

      • smcollins says:

        That thing reaches her knuckle! I’m not into large rings for myself, and while I do appreciate a fine piece of jewelry, that just seems a little over-the-top. But then I’m also not a wealthy socialite, so there’s that.

    • Umyeah says:

      So ugly smd there is no way he bought a ring that cost that much, he is rich but not that rich

    • Veronica says:

      Yeah, it’s pretty tacky to me. Rings are one of those things where size and proportion make a huge difference in appearance.

    • InVain says:

      I enjoy nice, big diamonds as well, but that is other-worldly ugly. If someone offered me that, I’d gladly accept and then have it made into a pendant immediately.

    • minx says:

      It’s honestly one of the worst, tackiest, gaudiest rings I’ve ever seen.

    • Sherry says:

      I felt the same way when I saw it yesterday. I sent a screenshot to my daughter and said, “Paris’ ring is hideous! It looks like something you’d get from a vending machine.”


  3. Mara says:

    Congratulations I guess. I wonder if they’ll actually make it to the alter.
    Hasn’t she been engaged a few times before?

    • Millennial says:

      I vaguely remember her being engaged to Stavros or the other Paris back in the day, but it’s been so long. And maybe one other person too.

      I think this one will sticks. She wants babies so she can stay relevant with magazine covers.

    • Squiggisbig says:

      Shes been engaged two other times and he’s been engaged once before.

      The nice thing about this one though is that if it doesn’t work out she should be able to keep the ring that she clearly bought herself.

    • Rice says:

      From the side view, he looks like her ex Nick Carter.

    • argonaut says:

      i remember the engagement to paris latsis. those were great days for celebrity gossip. he was a prettyboy then, but he is looking really rough nowadays.

    • WinchesterGirl says:

      She’s been engaged more than once and every single guy that she’s dating no matter how much time has passed, she always says the same things: “he’s the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way.” Few weeks later. New love of her life.
      Date often but jc, they can’t all be the love of your life

  4. Wunderkind says:

    I don’t get the fuss? Hasn’t she been engaged like fiftyleven times?

    Happy for her and hope it works out this time though!

  5. Froggy says:

    That ring is ridiculous. No way she didn’t pick it out and buy it herself but if she’s happy with it and him, good for her. I hope it’s a long, happy marriage.

    • Esmom says:

      It looks like something from a gumball machine. But she said “yas,” lol.

      I liked him in The Leftovers. Now I’m questioning my taste. But you’re right, if they’re happy I hope it works.

  6. Talie says:

    There aren’t many men who would have as much money as her…so she maybe she just decided to get herself a hot boytoy where she could call the shots. I mean, she apparently wants kids and she is closer to 40 than 30, so…

    • minx says:

      Yeah, that’s what I think. She buys the ring, controls most of the money, and he goes along with it. If it they don’t care it’s nobody’s business.

  7. Shambles says:

    lol girlfriend is posing like “this is my new MySpace profile pic” for her engagement photo. Never change, Paris. Thank you for bringing us the sweet, soothing balm of the early 2000s, when Donald Trump was nothing but an idiot developer with a stupid tv show.

  8. choupette says:

    The video of “the moment” on her Instagram could not be more gross.

    • elimaeby says:

      My god, I always forget what a terrible actress she is. Thank you for pointing us to that; it made my day.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I am loathe to admit this, but I saw that, too- and was struck by how grabby she was- she snatched that box from his hand like a raptor snatching its prey.

      It says a lot, IMO.

  9. tracking says:

    Well, good luck to them. Both have a history of volatile relationships, so I’m guessing the marriage will last two years, tops. Long enough to produce one child.

  10. Mgsota says:

    The video is super awkward and looks staged. She grabs the box and puts the ring on and then they kiss and then he walks off… Weird.

    • LadyT says:

      Of course it’s staged which makes the behavior even worse. Why would she post that? First she grabs the box and puts the ring on herself. Then he just walks off like he fulfilled his required duty and he’s off to get warm. She’s obviously excited by the ring- the man and marriage seem secondary in the video.

    • InVain says:

      Exactly… even without the volume, it was painful to watch. The grabbing of the box and putting it on herself? Wow.

  11. Wen says:

    The ring is disgusting, she could end poverty with that thing and instead chooses to flaunt it online.

  12. Deanne says:

    Sorry. but that ring is incredibly tacky and ugly in my opinion. However, she has the right to buy herself whatever tacky jewelry she wants. He clearly didn’t/couldn’t pay for it. His last couple of relationships ended in a really messy way and she’s been engaged multiple times. If they actually make it down the aisle, I hope they have a happy life together.

  13. Nancy says:

    That’s hot….says nobody.

  14. Sarah says:

    Wow- that’s one tacky ass ring!
    So, in other words…totallllly perfect for Paris!

  15. Renee says:

    That ring is tacky. Rings that size always look fake.

  16. Tiffany says:

    She is looking be more and more like Kathy with each enhancement.

    And I kinda feel bad for this dude. I think Paris just wants a wedding and will not care about the marriage after the honeymoon. She will get bored with him.

  17. Calla Lily says:

    The way she grabbed it and put it on made it obvious she bought it…lol.

  18. greenmonster says:

    She sounds exactly like Meghan Trainor in her announcement:
    – love of my life
    – dreams come true
    – soulmate

  19. Ferdinand says:

    Well, I don’t know. As much as I like Chris and I like him A LOT. He’s always been like this. I think he REALLY needs to be with somebody and be engaged. He’s been engaged basically with all of her girlfriends post Lucy Hale. Even if he’s been dating them for a couple of months. This is his thing, so, I don’t know. Wishing both the best!

  20. benchwarmer says:

    Give them a show! I’d totally watch that. They look good together. She might need a body guard when she’s wearing that ring though. That would make me nervous.

  21. RachelPhelps says:

    She’s so freaking CORNY. She’s such a try-too-hard in everything she does that it makes me cringe and avert my eyes. I’m actually embarrassed FOR her. Ugh.

  22. bella says:

    That ring is ugly and doesn’t even look real! It looks fake. I have seen a lot big ring that are gorgeous and look real. It’s not a good looking fake.

  23. KiddVicious says:

    I think the ring is gorgeous…as a cocktail ring. A bit tacky as an engagement ring. Too much bling for an everyday ring. It looks like it has side diamonds and maybe diamonds on the band? I can’t really tell, but if it were just the huge-ass diamond on a simple plain band, I would like it better for an engagement ring.

    But, Paris is skiing in a gold outfit, bling is her thing.

  24. lucy2 says:

    How many soulmate fiances is that now, Paris? 5? 6?

    That is one gaudy ring. Kind of looks like a cheap costume jewelry piece.

  25. Amelie says:

    Hasn’t she been engaged a few times? I’ll believe it when I see it. Also he’s been engaged before too? Well I wish her all the happiness of course but hopefully this is the one.

  26. spidee! says:

    That isn’t an engagement ring, it’s an offensive weapon. She could put someone’s eye out with it! 🙂

  27. Yup, Me says:

    Everyone has already said it all about the ring and the fiftyleven previous engagements between the two of them.

    The only thing I have to add is that I love that long dress she’s wearing that looks like Fruit Stripes gum. I would wear the hell out of that thing.

  28. Peanut Gallery says:

    This is hilarious. That ring is the ugliest ring I have EVER seen. It looks like it’s fake, for one, and on top of that the “diamond” looks cloudy AND it’s so large that it’s comical. Like one of those ring pop rings you get out of a machine. Then you have her appalling ski outfit that looks like it came from Justice (the tween girls store) and THEN you throw in that she’s pretending to have been “surprised”. Oh Paris. Never change. NEVER change. LMAO!

  29. Lama Bean says:

    Paris looks just like her aunt Kyle Richards (and her mother Kathie) in the first red carpet picture.

    Also, fiance looks like a dolt.

  30. xdanix says:

    Well, am I terrible if the first thing I thought was- there is NO way in hell he paid for that (seriously ugly) ring himself?! Like, zero chance. He’s done ok as an actor, but not even CLOSE to a 2 million dollar engagement ring ok!

    Second thought… meh. Paris seems to be really into him, but I wonder is it more just the idea of falling in love, marriage and babies she’s into? She’s talked repeatedly the last couple years about seeing the happiness her sister has and wanting it for herself, and I’ve known a few people who went down that road, because of wanting the fantasy or feeling under pressure from time, or whatever, and it didn’t end well for any of them.

    Plus, Chris Zylka ALWAYS seems dreamy-in-love, head over heels for whoever he’s with- right up until it’s over! I’ll never forget the way he went off on Lucy Hale after they broke up- I’d really liked him up until then, and I was so sad they broke up when they seemed so adorable together, but that really showed me his true colours and left a nasty taste in my mouth. I hope for Paris’s sake that it all stays going well, and if it DOES end, that he treats her with more respect.

  31. LittlefishMom says:

    I’ve never ever heard of this guy. ??? That ring is hideous. Not my taste. If they are happy then have at it!

  32. Bread and Circuses says:

    I like her emeralds better in the last photo, but I am a sucker for brightly-coloured stones. That diamond is the size of an ice cube!

    Congratulations to the couple, and best wishes for a happy future together.

  33. Shelly says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Paris.
    I hope she has a happy marriage and life

  34. Caroline says:

    Interesting that people seem to think she is harmless and either forget or didn’t know that she was infamously caught on video mocking people who went to public schools, abusing African Americans and using the N word. She really is nasty trash.
