Here we go again.

Ryan Seacrest set off rumors that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would get engaged during her 32nd birthday vacation in Rome.

"I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday," Seacrest said on Friday.

So, is the still-married Kardashian engaged? Not according to friend Jonathan Cheban.

"She wrote me this morning and didn't mention it," he told The Huffington Post's Rob Shuter.

What we do know about her vacation? She decided to change clothes mid-meal while dining with her rapper beau at Il Bolognese.

"Mid-dinner [Kim and Kayne's] driver came into the restaurant with a huge carrier bag and dress carrier," the owner told People, adding that she then went into the bathroom and changed from her black dress to an emerald green peplum dress.

"Some of our guests were already quite stunned by her presence and even more so when she reappeared looking completely different."

Uh, yeah. Changing clothes in the middle of a meal is definitely a cry for attention. We're actually surprised she didn't get engaged over the weekend, given that it seems she's peaked popularity-wise. Now, it's sister Khloe Kardashian that's getting the attention as host of "The X Factor" with Mario Lopez.

Kim Kardashian: Jealous of Khloe Kardashian?

It's no secret that the Kardashian sisters are close, but that was when Kim was the most famous one and Khloe and Kourtney were a bit more in the background. Now, Khloe will get plenty of mainstream attention on "The X Factor" - and we can't help but wonder if Kim is jealous.

Not that Kris Jenner isn't trying to get Kim and Kourtney their own hosting gigs. According to RadarOnline, the momager is trying to get Kim a gig on a show like "America's Next Top Model" and older sister Kourtney on "Project Runway."

"Because Kourtney was more prominently involved with working on their Dash clothing label, Kris believes she should be on a show like 'Project Runway,'" a source told RadarOnline.

"Kim is great in front of the camera, has lots of experience modeling and doing fashion shoots, so Kris is desperate for her to get involved as a judge on a show like 'America's Next Top Model.'"

We're not too convinced this will happen. The Kardashian ship is about ready to set sail, though we don't suspect Jenner and the Klan will let it go without a fight. Could a marriage to West help their popularity? Doubtful, but we have no doubt they'll try. We just don't have the energy to go through another Kim wedding debacle.

Do you think Kim Kardashian will eventually get married to Kanye West?
