Dean McDermott has attempted to make amends with Tori Spelling by giving her a vintage ring for their eighth wedding anniversary. McDermott, who completed a stint in rehab after admitting to cheating on his wife last year, gave Spelling a hand-engraved, Renaissance-inspired ring set in 18-carat gold with pear-sharped sapphires and square-cut rubies earlier this week. “Dean wanted to keep tradition and celebrate their anniversary and ‘love story’ with a very special, beautiful ring set in gold,” said jewellery designer Neil Lane. The strained marriage between McDermott and Spelling, who married in 2003 and have four children together, is currently supplying reality-style fodder for the Lifetime series True Tori.

The man running CNN believes his network is giving the public what it wants with its incessant coverage of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Media critics and even U.S. president Barack Obama have criticized the all-news network in recent days for its marathon coverage of the missing airliner, which lost contact with the outside world on March 8. “I think that if people want to be critical of CNN for over-covering a story, that’s totally fine with us,” said CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker earlier this week. “Clearly, the audience has spoken and said that what CNN did was correct.” Despite the criticism, CNN has seen a huge ratings increase nearing 100 per cent in recent weeks.

Lady Gaga is still trying to pick a fight with Katy Perry. On Thursday, the Mother Monster went onto Twitter to make fun of Perry’s green wig and shiny robotic horse employed on the opening night of her Prismatic World Tour, which kicked off the same day in Belfast, Ireland. Tweeted Gaga: “It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now,” to which she attached an unflattering emoji of googly eyes. The jab comes less than two months after Gaga spoke disparagingly of Perry during a concert in Austin, Tex. “Our music is so completely different,” Gaga told the audience. “I couldn’t be more different, really.”
