Wow Our readers went gaga over Holly Madison's 18-carat engagement ring, a yellow diamond surrounded by pink and yellow diamond flowers and even a tiny owl, designed in part by her fiancé Pasquale Rotella, who proposed atop a Ferris wheel in Las Vegas.

Angry Readers were angered by Alec Baldwin after the actor tweeted homophobic and profane rants directed at a British journalist who claimed his wife Hilaria had sent out her own "upbeat" tweets while they attended the funeral of James Gandolfini in New York. Baldwin later apologized, closing his account and saying he was done tweeting for good.
