Neal Schon

Leave it to Michaele Salahi to keep on making headlines for doing a whole lot of nothing!

The former "Real Housewives of DC" star and infamous White House party crasher became engaged to Journey guitarist Neal Schon over the weekend following an onstage proposal during a benefit show in Baltimore. According to the Washington Post, the rocker brought his bride-to-be out midway through the show and dropped to one knee to pop the question.

Her publicist has confirmed the news Tweeting, "Neal Schon proposes to Michaele Salahi at One Cause Benefit Concert. SHE SAID YES!!!"

The former reality star was previously married to Tareq Salahi for nearly eight years before splitting in September 2011. She had previously dated the rocker in the 1990s before tying the knot with Tareq. They reportedly reunited their love affair around the time she left her former husband.

With the news of their engagement, the couple joins an elite group of stars who have been able to make love work the second time around. Here are some of the stars who gave love a second chance:

Pink and Carey Hart: Sometimes all it takes is some time away from each other to make the heart grow fonder. Then again, sometimes it takes some bitter breakup songs to mend a broken heart. The rocker babe and her motorcross beau seemed like a perfect match when they tied the knot in a beachside wedding in 2006. Things fell apart two years later and the tattooed twosome called it quits. She took to the airwaves to blast her ex in song on her 2008 album, "Fundhouse." Somehow they managed to weather the storm and skip the divorce by reconciling a year later. They went on to welcome their first child, daughter Willow, in 2011.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake: The photogenic couple went through a phase of on-again / off-again ups and downs before finally calling it quits in March 2011. The two quickly learned that absence makes the heart grow fonder and rekindled their love match in the summer 2011. Things were definitely back on track by Christmas 2011 when the singer proposed to his lady love in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson: The "Twilight" couple have had a rough couple of months after a cheating scandal rocked their made-for-the-big-screen romance. After not-so-secretly dating for four years, the couple very publicly called it quits after Stewart was caught on camera canoodling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders, this summer. She immediately issued an apology to her beau saying, "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." After she moved out of their shared Los Angeles home, the couple have been reportedly been spending some time together trying to find the love and trust again.
