According to the latest celebrity news in UsMagazine.com, former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis may be off the market soon! Multiple sources confirm that the reality TV star is ready to propose to his girlfriend, Venezuelan beauty queen Osmariel Villalobos. “She’ll definitely say yes,” the insider reveals. “They spend all their time together, and she gets along amazingly with his 8-year-old daughter, Camila. All of Juan’s family and friends love her. They have talked about marriage, and both know it’s what they want.” The celebrity couple has been dating since last summer and are “perfect” for each other. Despite this happy celebrity news, we can’t ignore Galavis’s shaky relationship history: The ex-soccer star is known for his inability to commit, infamously giving his final rose to Nikki Ferrell on the season 18 finale of The Bachelor but refusing to propose or even say “I love you.”

On Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor, reality TV star Nick Viall and the remaining nine ladies headed to St. Thomas, which frontrunner Raven called “the perfect place to fall in love — and the perfect place to send people home.” According to the latest celebrity news on UsMagazine.com, after a successful one-on-one date, the group date took a disastrous turn. None of the six women felt like they were getting enough quality time with Viall, and after a lot of tears, the bachelor deemed the day “pretty much a disaster.” That evening, things continued to go poorly as Viall listened to each woman open up about her feelings and sent Jasmine home on the spot. The only one to actually enjoy this disastrous date? Raven, who got the rose at the end of the night.

Is there trouble in paradise? The Bachelor alum Lauren Bushnell recently celebrated her 27th birthday in Mexico without one special person by her side: fiancé Ben Higgins. According to UsMagazine.com, the reality TV star jetted off to the beach with her family for a week of fun in the sun. Higgins shared a sweet birthday message on Instagram and also responded to recent celebrity news and break-up rumors, writing, “[J]ust know as @laurenbushnell celebrates her birthday tomorrow I am still extremely lucky to be able to share life with her and be by her side.” Fans first began speculating about a celebrity break-up when Bushnell spent a girls’ weekend in Nashville without her 4.25-carat Neil Lane engagement ring — which is noticeably absent in her Instagram posts from Mexico as well.

In celebrity news, this turn of events has us wondering about Lauren and Ben’s relationship. What are some tell-tale signs that things aren’t going well in your relationship?

Poor Chris Soules had a lot to handle on last night’s jam-packed episode of the hit reality TV show The Bachelor. His hands were full with two group dates, two one-on-ones, a visit from his sisters, a shameless Cinderella promotion, and one big confession. The first group date brought seven girls to the lake for a day of beach fun and night of camping. Ashley I. was, in her own words, a camping virgin and a virgin camping, and after fretting over it, she decided to tell Soules the truth about her sexual history — or lack thereof. She snuck into The Bachelor star’s tent in the middle of night to wake him up and was clearly nervous as she danced around the point of the conversation without actually saying it. In his blog on People.com, the Iowa farmer writes, “Here’s a little lesson for you ladies: Men are pretty simple when it comes to words… Spell it out for us. Maybe even write it down so we don’t forget it. We don’t work well with subtlety.” Later in the episode, she bravely tried again, and this time, she came right out with her confession.

The Bachelor contestant Ashley I. was in need of some dating advice before she confronted Chris Soules with her big reveal on last night’s episode. What are some ways to successfully open up to a guy?

Screwing the Rules Video Dating Advice: How ‘The Bachelor’ Is Changing the Reality of Dating

By E!’s Famously Single Dating Coach, Laurel House

In this week’s dating advice video, relationship expert and E!’s Famously Single dating coach, Laurel House discusses how The Bachelor, particularly season 19 with Chris Soules, and other similar reality TV shows are changing the reality of dating.

Dating Advice from E!’s Famously Single Dating Coach Laurel House

“They’re helping to shape the way we view what is desirable, what is sexy,” she explains of the reality TV franchise. “With Farmer Chris from Iowa as America’s current leading man, the dating landscape has dramatically shifted.” House reveals five ways that Soules is changing the reality of dating: Women no longer want bad boys like former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis; we see farmers as marriage material; we’re going back to the basics and forgetting about the rich and famous; we want a true gentleman; and we (finally!) think nice is sexy.

Funny enough, a reality TV show is helping us redefine real love. “It’s being authentic; it’s being our true self. It’s looking down deep and thinking, ‘What do I need in a relationship and love? What do I need in a relationship? What will sustain a relationship long-term?'” the relationship expert shares.

Coffee Meets Bagel Dating App Co-Founder Talks About Being on ‘Shark Tank’

Cupid's Pulse Article: Coffee Meets Bagel Dating App Co-Founder Talks About Being on ‘Shark Tank’
The co-founders of dating and relationship app Coffee Meets Bagel talk exclusively about their appearance on the premiere of ABC's 'Shark Tank.' Photo courtesy of ABC.

Interview by Lori Bizzoco. Written by Lori Bizzoco and Emma Wells.

Looking for a unique way to find love on your mobile device? Well, one of the biggest names in dating and relationship apps is about to get some air time on television tonight (and no, it’s not Tinder). Coffee Meets Bagel co-founders and sisters, Dawoon, Arum, and Soo Kang, are heading to ABC’s Shark Tank for the season premiere to seek funding for an Android app expansion that launched two days ago to compliment their growing business.

What is the Coffee Meets Bagel Dating and Relationship App?

Coffee Meets Bagel was started by the Kang sisters in April 2012 in New York. As smart, attractive, young, and busy professionals who weren’t having much success with dating, they wanted to make finding love easier and more fun for singles by creating a unique dating and relationship app. According to their website, Coffee Meets Bagel operates under three guiding principles: Firstly, your dating life should be as private as you want it to be; secondly, meeting people through friends is safe and easy; and finally, it shouldn’t be hard, uncomfortable, or tricky to meet good potential partners.

Related Link: New Dating Apps to Manage Your Love Life

Coffee Meets Bagel sets itself apart from other dating and relationship apps by providing users with only one potential match – or “Bagel” – per day at noon. Users then have 24 hours to either “like” or “pass” on their match. If you select “like” and your match does too, you get connected via SMS messages and can schedule a date. Additionally, Coffee Meets Bagel only provides matches it finds through your Facebook friend network. Perhaps this is why it has been so successful: They claim one million matches/introductions since they launched!

Their Experiences on Shark Tank

Executive Editor Lori Bizzoco had the chance to meet Dawoon a few years back at the New York launch party, and she spoke to her again this week. She wouldn’t disclose too much information about what happens on Shark Tank or about the company’s user numbers. “We don’t give out our numbers,” she reveals. Well, that’s going to make for an interesting segment tonight considering Shark Tank investors are ALL about the numbers! When asked if we’ll find out more about this on the show, she replies, “You’ll have to wait and see!”  Interestingly, Mashable reported that the sisters were attacked by the sharks for being coy about their users.

It’s not that the sisters don’t know the premise of the show. In fact, Dawoon said that they are big fans. However, she does tell us that they didn’t seek out the opportunity to be on Shark Tank, explaining that ABC actually contacted them directly. “I never considered  going on Shark Tank before because we are a bigger company than the entrepreneurs they typically have on the show,” referring to her company’s 11 person team and their recent funding. The company received their first round of funding in September 2012 for 600,000 dollars from LightBank Venture Capital and the co-founder of Match.com, Peng T. Ong. They received a second round of venture capital – 2.8 million dollars – from an unknown source in May 2014.  Speculation is that this came from one of the sharks, but Dawoon confirms it did not. “The investment happened before the announcement was made and before Shark Tank,” she says.

But when the opportunity presented itself, they knew it was too good to turn down. “We thought it would be amazing to have one of the sharks involved because they are so smart and experienced,” she shares. “So we decided to go for it.  It was very nerve-racking, but it was a lot of fun!”

When asked if there was a particular shark they would want as an investor, she points to Mark Cuban. “If I were to pick one shark [to work with], I would probably love to have him involved because he’s just so tech savvy. All the sharks are very straightforward and sharp, but I find Mark to be particularly so. I can totally see him adding a lot of value to Coffee Meets Bagel. We are very excited at the prospect of getting any of the sharks involved though.”

Like any good reality television show, there is always the  possibility of some drama.  We’ll just have to wait and see if Coffee Meets Bagel will be a match on the premiere episode of Shark Tank!

First dates can be stressful enough, but can you imagine having 30 first dates simultaneously? That’s how Chris Soules felt on Monday night during the premiere of The Bachelor Season 19. “It was nerve-racking but exciting to be in the same room with 30 amazing women and knowing that one of them could potentially become my fiancée,” Soules said in an interview with People.com. While some women handled the stress of the evening better than others (a few contestants were noticeably intoxicated by the evening’s close…), they all made lasting impressions. From motorcycles and karaoke to secret admirers and a pig nose, the women used a variety of tactics to try and catch the handsome bachelor’s eye. Some ended up being more successful than others, as the 33-year-old farm boy from Iowa eliminated eight women during the first rose ceremony on The Bachelor Season 19.

The holidays are meant to be shared with the people you love, and for Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, they did just that! According to Wetpaint.com, the Bachelor in Paradise couple spent their first Thanksgiving together in Faddoul’s home state of California. Both reality stars posted sweet pictures together on their Instagram accounts. Faddoul captioned one photo, “Happy Thanksgiving!
