It was already a big week for David Parnes from Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles with his show premiering this week, but now we’ve just gotten news that he proposed to his girlfriend Adrian and we’ve got all the details and an EXCLUSIVE photo of the big moment!

Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles

David on how he proposed to Adrian:

I wanted to propose in Capri, Italy as its our favourite place. The energy and the scenery, the restaurants, the sea – it’s all so beautiful. I wanted to have the peace of mind that I made it as memorable as I could…. I was only going to get one shot!

I organised a boat to pick us up from the peer at 4pm, which took us on a journey around the island for a few hours. We were able to relax and unwind, joke and laugh and just be together within the most breathtaking setting.

Next we were picked up by a vintage, Italian, convertible taxi which drove us to the the lighthouse at the top of the island. When we arrived, the driver suggested we walk up a secluded pathway, which was sign posted with or names along the trail.

As we got to the top, there was a terrace, which was decorated with white and pink roses (Adrian’s favourite), champagne and chocolates. The timing was important as sunset was about to start. A gentleman playing the guitar followed us as did a photographer who was able to capture the moment that I got down on my knee as the sun disappeared into the sea. It really was incredible. Thank goodness all went perfectly and Adrian said yes!

On the ring:

The ring was designed and made by Lorraine Schwartz. She worked with me every step of the way and created the perfect ring for Adrian. Fortunately, James’ wife Valeria had been ring shopping with Adrian and she let me know which type of ring Adrian wanted.

The ring is a 4 carat, cushion cut stone, on a simple, white gold and diamond setting. Thanks to Lorraine and Valeria, Adrian LOVED it!

On how they met:

I met Adrian a little less than two years ago at Cecconi’s restaurant in West Hollywood. I was having dinner with a friend and client on the table next to her. Adrian was with a guy, however I could tell they weren’t together, it seemed more of a business meeting (I later found out that Adrian is an interior designer).

I literally couldn’t keep my eyes off of her and I kept saying to my client that I needed to get her number. He kind of laughed it off but I couldn’t seem to get the courage to ask her. Anyway she left and I took my chances, I walked outside and she was gone!

I thought to myself there’s no way I can miss this girl – I’d never felt this kind of attraction without even speaking to someone before. I went around the corner and saw her sitting in her car, so I briskly (and awkwardly) walked over to speak with her. Luckily she was so sweet and receptive and let me know she wasn’t married and she didn’t have a boyfriend. She gave me her number and the rest is history!

And to make things even better – my client was so impressed he gave me his listing on the spot. The evening had proven very successful!

On their relationship:

Adrian is a home maker and everything she creates is perfect! We have FIVE rescue dogs between us: Maxi and Bella (my Basset Hounds), L’il Mama and L’il Papa (the chihuahuas) and lastly – we just rescued another tiny little chihuahua currently named: “the baby”.

We built a house together in West Hollywood and the story will be told this season on the show so I can’t say much more on this!

I hope all our Orlando queens are accounted for down in Orlando, FL! Roxxxy Andrews, you coo? Ginger Minj, you good? Anyone got eyes on Tyra Sanchez?! Hide yo wife! Hide yo kids! Hide yo husbands! There is a damn king cobra on the loose in Orlando. The eight foot long, green and yellow snake escaped from it’s ‘possibly mesh and glass’ cage in it’s owner’s home sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Orlando Sentinel spoke to Carl Barden who owns the Reptile Discovery Center and has been extracting venom from king cobras for over 20, and he says the snakes are “shy elusive animals” and that “the chances of that snake actually biting someone are extremely remote.” He also said there was plenty of king cobra anti-venom in Central Florida. A local elementary school isn’t taking any chances and is keeping all kids inside today while the hunt for the missing snake continues. Although officials haven’t revealed who owns the home, property records show that Mike Kennedy, who’s know for Airplane Repo on the Discovery Channel, owns it with his wife Valerie. I know I’d be inside today because I just CAN’T with king cobras.

Well, our dude was a guest on The Tonight Show last night and got an opportunity to discuss the performance, admitting that his crying moment was genuine, and due to the fact that he just wanted to be liked.

He also went up against Questlove to prove that he has some amazing skills as a drummer (which I can confirm because I’ve seen it live in person tbh.)

Federal District Judge David Bunning held Kim Davis in contempt of court today. She was led out by U.S. Marshals. The judge said that financial sanctions were not enough to ensure her compliance with the law. The sidewalk outside of the courthouse was filled with protesters on both sides of the issue. Davis’s opponents chanted that she’s “got to go,” while her opponents screamed “repent” and “homo love is hate.”

Davis said that she was …

“prepared to go to jail” and that she believes that she is “a vessel God has chosen for this time and this place”… she also claims that “this is a heaven or hell issue for me and for every other Christian that believes.”

It’s still unclear what sanction Bunning could impose on her — short of a legally controversial move such as removing her from office — that would cause her to comply with the law. The county’s judge executive may issue marriage licenses “in the absence of the county clerk, or during a vacancy in the office.” So, if Davis is not in her her position because she has been jailed, couples in her county will once again be able to obtain marriage licenses. So it’s a win win! (via Think Progress)

We’re all obsessed with Instagram these days, but Andy Warhol was snapping photos of his surroundings long before Instagram’s creators were even born. Reuel Golden, editor of Andy Warhol Polaroids 1958–1987, told The Huffington Post;

“Andy was probably the original Instagrammer, in a way. While the artist is well known for consorting with his own posse of Factory kids and superstars, as his films and photographs from the era reveal, he was also socializing with big-name actors, musicians, fashion designers and artists — and documenting every bit of it. This intersection of the private and the public in Warhol’s daily life came to light thanks to the Polaroid camera, which Golden called the “perfect tool for moving between capturing all those different facets.”

Golden’s new book features polaroids by Andy of everyone from Jack Nicholson to Audrey Hepburn, Divine to Jean-Michel Basquiat, Grace Jones to Dolly Parton, and beyond.

Art critic Richard B. Woodward writes in the book’s introduction;

“These portraits signify who was welcome into Warhol’s club, a place at once private, snobbish and hostile to middle-class squares and yet open to scores of outcasts, the prodigiously talented or the merely sensational and anyone making news on the front page or the gossip section of the tabloids.”

Golden says:

“With this celebrity culture these days, a lot of these celebrities have professional retouchers who work on their Instagram account. I think to Warhol that was the very antithesis of what Warhol and his Polaroids in particular represent.” It’s the rawness in his instant photos that separates them from the filtered images of today; the flash bouncing off a slightly out-of-focus Nicholson in mid-sentence; a naked couple in the shower modestly smiling at the camera; Warhol’s mother, Julia Warhola, holding a knife and apple in a messy bedroom wearing only a nightgown and rolled-down leggings.

This unabashed rawness is also present in his selfies. While the concept of a selfie, in and of itself, is wrapped up in pure self-promotion with an inherent air of vanity, Warhol’s were ripe with vulnerability as he posed shirtless, content with exposing his imperfections.”

Well, to be honest, in the day I was a big Polaroid user (I even have a signed Polaroid I shot of Andy!) and this is how I’ve always used Instagram– as my Polaroid “sharing system”. The Square format –which has is NOT just square – lends itself to this.

Andy Warhol Polaroids 1958–1987 is now available at TASCHEN.com.
