Buzzmakers: Sean Proposes & Little Couple Adopts


What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?

1. How Sean & Catherine Kept Their Engagement a Secret

It's been months since Bachelor Sean Lowe actually popped the question to contestant Catherine Giudici and, miraculously, the lovebirds were able to keep their secret under wraps. How'd they do it?

"We only got to see each other once every couple of weeks," revealed Sean, who dwelled in Dallas as his search for romance hit the airways from January through March. Meanwhile, his bride-to-be returned to her hometown of Seattle.

"When we saw each other, we were basically in a house and we couldn't leave the house," he explained. "We've been keeping this secret for so long so it feels so nice to have it out in the open now."

If that wasn't hard enough, Sean has been withholding another big item from fans—his involvement with Dancing with the Stars. The hunky Texan and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd apparently had to employ similar tactics to ensure no one would let the cat out of the bag.

"It wasn't easy," admitted Sean. "My partner Peta and I, we've been practicing away from where everyone else practices. So it's nice to have that secret out of the way too, and now everyone can know that I will be on Dancing with the Stars."

2. 'The Little Couple' Adopts a Boy with Dwarfism

Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein, the stars of TLC's The Little Couple, have adopted a 3-year-old boy who has a form of dwarfism, People reports.

"We are thrilled to announce that we have adopted a beautiful young boy from China," the couple said in a statement. "We are so proud to welcome William to our family and look forward to bringing him home."

The couple had previously talked about their desire to adopt in their hit show -- specifically a child with special needs -- after their surrogate suffered a miscarriage.

"It's always been on our radar and I think it's time we start getting serious about it," Arnold said last March, joking, "If we could just adopt all the little people on the web page, we could fill the house really quickly."

Their adoption journey will be documented on the show's sixth season, which premieres April 30 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.

3. 'Girls' Creator Lena Dunham: Hannah's Clothes Are Meant to Look Bad

If you've ever been watching Girls and thought, "What is Hannah wearing?", then Lena Dunham has done her job. The woman behind the hit HBO show revealed on CBS' Sunday Morning that her character's clothes are meant to be ill-fitting.

"Yeah. We will do a thing sometimes where we'll, like, all fit clothes with Spanx so that they're kinda, like, fit right. And then I'll remove the Spanx so they're kinda like rumpled up," Dunham, 26, admitted. When asked if she wants her character Hannah to look "a little awkward," the Golden Globe winner agreed: "Yeah, I think it's important. I think it's a part of who she is."

Dunham was also confronted with the question of why she is constantly nude on the show, and surprisingly, the actress/writer revealed that she's not out to offend. "To express what I'm trying to express, to express the truth. ...This is what feels right to me in the moment. This is what is poetic," Dunham said, adding that she's not trying to make a big political statement. "It's not a calculation to land screen caps of me on blogs."

"We have this insane culture where women who don't look like the cast of Gossip Girl are put into sweaters and nightgowns to sleep in," Dunham continued. "What I love are like the films from the '70s where someone gets out of bed and you see half of their nipple, because that's what it looks like for a person to get out of bed."

4. Cindy Crawford Opens Up About Richard Gere Divorce

Cindy Crawford is opening up about her four-year marriage to Richard Gere on Oprah's Master Class, including why the couple divorced in 1995.

Crawford married Gere when she was 25 years old, and he was 42, and cites the age difference as one of their major issues.

"I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was, I was still 22 and at 22 -- as a young woman -- I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37," she says about the start of their relationship.

"I just think your twenties for women is such a time when you're starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength and it's hard to do that -- it's hard to change -- in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you're not that anymore," she says. "I think I was more willing at 22 to be, like, 'Okay, I'll follow,' but then you start going, 'Well, I don't want to just follow -- I want to lead sometimes and I want to walk side by side sometimes.'"

Though it didn't work out between the two, she does say that the actor taught her how to deal with fame.

"When I would see how he was with fans when they approached him, a lot of the times it wouldn't be a good moment to sign an autograph ... but I got to look to him to see how he created boundaries for himself that felt good. " ... He felt it was really just about making that connection, looking someone in the eyes and making sure that they felt seen."

5. 'The View' Shoots Down Hasselbeck Exit Rumors

Amidst rumors that Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be following Joy Behar out the door at The View, Barbara Walters openly shot down the reports.

"We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show," Walters stated this morning, after reports emerged that ABC was firing the mom over her hyper-conservative views. "Elisabeth helps gives the show perspective and balance," the newswoman added.

Behar used the episode's opening minutes to list off her Top 10 reasons for leaving The View, the number one being to embrace her dream of not wearing a brassiere.
