BUZZMAKERS: Maynard Engaged, Outkast Reunites

What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?

1. Emily Maynard Engaged

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard is taking another shot at finding true love. The Southern belle has confirmed to ET that she's engaged to boyfriend Tyler Johnson.

This marks Maynard's fourth engagement. Her first fiancé, race car driver Ricky Hendrick, died tragically in a plane crash in 2004 before the couple could walk down the aisle. She and Hendrick had a daughter named Ricki, who is now age eight. Her second engagement came at the end of The Bachelor's 15th season when she accepted Brad Womack's proposal only to return his engagement ring shortly thereafter. In 2012, Maynard became engaged to Jef Holm on the season finale of The Bachelorette, but split up months later.

2. Plastic Surgery Addict Seeks 'QQQ' Breasts

One of the most bizarre obsessions to be featured on TLC's reality series My Strange Addiction is a mother of six who has already undergone at least 30 different plastic surgery procedures but is still chasing yet another cosmetic dream -- to have a new operation to double the size of her breasts to a shocking QQQ cup!

In this sneak peek clip from My Strange Addiction: "Proud to be Plastic" -- airing tonight at 10 p.m. on TLC -- 44-year-old Lacey resists opposition from her children, who attempt to persuade her against undergoing the potentially dangerous surgical procedure.

Watch the clip to hear Lacey explain her rationale for continuing to use plastic surgery to fulfill her quest to achieve the perfect body.

3. Lily Tomlin Marries Partner of 42 Years

Lily Tomlin has married her longtime partner, Jane Wagner.

The 74-year-old actress/comedian wed Wagner, 78, in a private ceremony in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve, Tomlin's rep confirmed Tuesday to People magazine. "They're very happy," spokesperson Jennifer Allen told the publication about the couple, who have spent 42 years together.

The two reportedly met while Tomlin was searching for a collaborator to help her develop her character of the wicked child Edith Ann.

The couple has collaborated on many professional projects written by Wagner, including Tomlin's Tony-winning one-woman show The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, as well as the 1981 movie The Incredible Shrinking Woman.

4. Clooney Offers Date to One Lucky Fan

Now he's offering one lucky fan the chance to spend an entire day with him, including being his date at the red carpet premiere and after-party for his new film The Monuments Men.
