Boy, can Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds keep a secret!  The duo have been engaged for months now, but kept it from prying ears until Monday when O’Donnell announced the soon-to-be nuptials on The Rosie Show.  According to People, the usually outspoken talk show host confessed on Tuesday that she has never been comfortable discussing her relationships.  “You don’t want to become one of those celebrities that talks about their relationship ad nauseum and makes it into a fairy-tale thing, and then they go and have an affair with somebody,” joked O’Donnell.  No matter what the reason may be, it’s out now: O’Donnell and Rounds are happily engaged.

What are some ways to tell family and friends that you’re engaged?

Cupid’s Advice:

Getting engaged is exciting, and telling your family and friends should be easy.  Here’s how to do it with style:

1. Flash your diamond: We all know you’re proud of it, so wave your hands around in the faces of all your girlfriends until they notice.  Point out random things around your apartment, and it won’t be long until your friends are swarming around admiring your newest prized possession.

2. Host a get-together: What better excuse is there to have your family and all of your closest friends over for dinner then to celebrate your new partnership?  A dinner party or even just cocktails is the best way to make your debut as an engaged woman, and of course to show off that rock.

3. Blurt it out: When all else fails, and you can’t contain your excitement a second longer, just shout it out.  Getting engaged is one of the happiest moments of your life, until you say “I do”, so why not tell those you care about?
