Apparently this woman, Nicol, has somehow gotten wrapped up into that and that makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. I was able to get Nicol's phone number, I spoke to her this morning, she told me she was absolutely shocked by this. I'm so apologetic. Talking to her, I just, it makes me sick, honestly, that this would happen. Especially around the holidays. I can't imagine being in her shoes. She told me there's $5,500 locked up in her Amazon account -- I'm gonna double that, send her $11,000 today. Just so she doesn't have anything to worry about. She was never supposed to be involved in anything like this. No fan should ever have to be involved in anything like this. This is unbelievable. I was completely shocked when I saw this this morning. It makes me sick. This is not something that I would ever do, this is not the kind of person I am. I'm not greedy in any way, shape or form. Money is the last thing on my mind, I promise you guys that, and I invited Nicol and her family out to a show this year so I can give her a hug and say sorry in person."

We love Rihanna, but there are other actors who can do this job.'”

Dear Fonseca

I ruined one of my Christmas surprises when I walked in on my boyfriend wrapping one of my holiday gifts. He got me a diamond ring. Several days after he got me the ring, my father suggested that I have it appraised and insured. I was shocked when the jeweler said the diamond is a cubic zirconia. I make three times what my boyfriend makes and know he would be embarrassed if I called him out. Plus, it's the thought that counts. My friends disagree and think I should confront him. Part of me wants to say something while the other part wants to stay silent and appreciate the gesture. What would you do if you were me? Should I be mad?


P.S.... He never said it was a diamond ring. He just said it was a ring.
