Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray Talked Engagement Rings in Fantasy Suite

ABC/Javier Pesquer(NEW YORK) -- Bachelor and Bachelorette fans often wonder what goes on in the fantasy suite.

For Andi Dorfman and her new fiancé, Josh Murray, it meant a lot of chit-chat about the future, including what engagement ring he should choose.

"It's a pretty big deal. I might as well tell him [what I want] if we're getting engaged!" Dorfman told ABC News, adding that she "could not be happier" with his pick. "Normal couples would go ring shopping or talk about it, so I'm like, 'Round, halo, maybe triple shank."

He listened. The Neil Lane sparkler -- an oval cut diamond surrounded by 154 round cut diamonds -- is three carats. The platinum band is also studded with diamonds.

"There's no triple shank, but this is round, halo and it is nice and big," Murray said. "I wanted to make sure it was the perfect ring for her."

However, they didn't just discuss jewelry. Murray said that he and his bride-to-be talked about their future plans for hours in the kitchen and became "best friends." Walking out, he felt confident that they'd end up together.

"It's over," Murray said he remembered thinking. "Done deal!"

Who Did Andi Dorfman Pick in the "Bachelorette" Finale?

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- After an emotional two-hour finale of The Bachelorette on ABC Monday night, Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray, accepting his marriage proposal and leaving fellow suitor Nick Viall stunned and heartbroken.

Dorfman, a former district attorney, cried when she visited Viall to tell him he wasn't her choice.

Viall said he never saw the disappointment coming, telling her he woke up that morning confident about them.

"Man, I really thought this was it," Viall said from the back of an SUV as he was driven away after receiving the news. "I really thought she loved me."

With tears in his eyes, Viall said he thought he and Dorfman had something special. Earlier in the episode she had said their relationship was filled with passion.

Later she had happier news for Murray, who, during the final rose ceremony, told her he wanted to give her the world.

"Andi you are the answer to all of my prayers you are the answer to my dreams you are the woman I thought never existed in this world. All my worries they just seem to vanish when I'm with you," Murray said.

Dorfman told Murray that she was in love with him and wanted to spend her life with him and have children together.

The competition started with 25 eligible men vying for Dorfman's hand. With the other men dismissed by Dorfman, Viall and Murray were last ones standing.

She narrowed it down week by week to Murray, a 29-year-old former pro baseball player from Atlanta, and Viall, a 33-year-old software sales executive who lives in Chicago.

This was the tenth edition of The Bachelorette.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Avoids Questions about Dating Jennifer Lopez

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- He may have shown up to her 45th birthday party, but don't expect Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy to talk about those rumors that he's dating Jennifer Lopez.

After the dancer was spotted celebrating with J-Lo last Thursday in New York's Hamptons, People magazine caught up with him Saturday night at his performance of Sway: A Dance Trilogy, and asked him point blank if he was dating Lopez.

"I'm just focused on dancing," he retorted. "I'm not interested in talking about anything other than the show."

Chmerkovskiy split from swimsuit model Kate Upton in December after six months of dating. Lopez split with dancer Casper Smart last month after dating for a few years.

Lisa Kudrow Shows Up for Jury Duty, Gets Dismissed

According to TMZ, the 50-year-old actress went all day without being selected for a jury panel. That automatically qualifies potential jurors for dismissal in L.A. County.

Sources tell the gossip website Kudrow sat quietly in the jury pool room, wearing a comfortable pair of loafers. The sources add that while some of the other jurors were star struck, Kudrow was friendly to everyone.

Michael Douglas Reveals He Lost 40 Pounds During His Cancer Treatment

ABC News (NEW YORK) -- In 2010, Michael Douglas was devastated to learn that he had stage-four cancer.

Speaking to a group of doctors at the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies’ 5th World Congress in New York City on Sunday, he spoke about his grueling experience with the disease and how it affected him.

"When I learned that I had stage-four cancer, I'm pretty sure that my eyes rolled into the back of my head," he said during the event's opening ceremony. "From the little I knew, this wasn't good. And I think that was probably the scariest moment I faced."

Douglas, 69, told the crowd that he was misdiagnosed three times, after experiencing gum pain behind his molars. When a CAT scan confirmed his doctor's suspicion that it was cancer, it was determined that the Oscar winner would be treated at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, near his home.

"I went through seven weeks of radiation and chemotherapy, which somehow seemed very accurately mapped to the seven circles of hell," he recalled. "Each week I sank a little lower and I felt a little -- no, I felt a lot worse."

Because he opted not to have surgery that would put a feeding tube in his stomach ("[It] would have had consequences for swallowing and taste later on," he explained), Douglas lost 40 pounds. However, he worked regularly with a nutritionist to help him keep his weight up, and he credited his team of physicians for being brutally honest with him throughout his treatment -- something he said helped him maintain a necessary sense of control.

"The doctors and nurses at Sloan Kettering had warned me not to expect to feel great the moment those seven weeks were over -- that there would be another five weeks of feeling pretty awful until I could even hope to improve," he said. "All of that was enormously important. Like a soldier, I prepared for battle. ...It was my job to toughen up and get ready for the treatment and later on for my recovery, and that's what I was able to do."

Douglas’ wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, also spoke at the event. According to the New York Daily News, she remarked that when she learned of Douglas’ diagnosis, "I was a mess. I'll be quite frank, I was a mess."

However, Zeta-Jones said, "When I'm married to a man who has such a conviction for life…he fights to make the wrongs right. For the first time, he was fighting for his life."

"Guardians of the Galaxy's" Zoe Saldana Wants More Female Superheroes

Buena Vista(SAN DIEGO) -- Zoe Saldana is known for playing kick-butt characters in movies like Colombiana, Avatar, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek series, and now Guardians of the Galaxy. However she thinks that the world of superheroes can use more girl power. "[A]nd I think that I'm not the only who is saying that," the actress told ABC News Radio over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con.

"I think it's overall a very loud, loud voice that is speaking up and saying, 'OK, enough with the sausage fest. It's actually sexier to see women kicking the crap out of each other.'"

In Guardians, there's no shortage of that: in the film, Saldana plays the fearsome, green-skinned assassin Gamora, and she tangles with another deadly beauty, Karen Gillan's cybernetic warrior Nebula.

Not to be outdone in the "strong female lead" department, Glenn Close also appears as the steely leader Nova Prime.

Guardians of the Galaxy
, which also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, opens Friday, Aug. 1.

Kiefer Sutherland Responds to Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Negative Comments

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Kiefer Sutherland's rep tells ABC News that the negative comments from former 24 co-star Freddie Prinze, Jr. about working together came as something of a surprise.

"Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances," his rep told ABC News.

The rep added, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."

The response came after comments Prinze made to ABC News' Jason Nathanson while he was at Comic-Con promoting his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels.

"I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze told ABC. "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face, I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."

He continued, "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."

Prinze, 38, said because of the experience, he stopped acting for a while and even went to work at World Wrestling Entertainment with Vince McMahon.

Behati Prinsloo Talks Having Kids With Husband Adam Levine

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Adam Levine, 35, and Behati Prinsloo, 25, tied the knot less than 10 days ago, but the newly-married Victoria's Secret model isn't afraid to admit that she has babies on the brain.

Prinsloo spoke to Net-a-Porter and told the magazine she has a "definite" plan to have children with Levine, but doesn't look to far into the future.

"I have no expectations. Not in a bad way, but I've learned that you can't plan ahead. I live day by day and see what happens. It's vague, but I like it that way," she added.

Prinsloo also revealed that her look suits her relationship with the Maroon 5 rockstar, whom she married on July 19.

"My look is grungy, very rock'n'roll," she tells the magazine about her style. "I love the '70s; I love the vibe. The music I listen to most is Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, punk."

Levine revealed that he had popped the question to Prinsloo last July and even went on Live with Kelly and Michael, saying the proposal was one of the most intense experiences of his life.

"You can't be confident about it," he said. "I'm a confident person, but I got on that knee and everything changed immediately."

How Sandra Bullock Celebrated Her 50th Birthday in Wyoming

ABC/Rick Rowell(JACKSON HOLE, Wyo.) -- Sandra Bullock kicked off her 50th birthday celebration a couple days early with a night of music and drinks with friends at a country-western bar in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The Gravity star, who turned 50 Saturday, and a group of girlfriends, including Chelsea Handler, got the festivities started at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar on Thursday.

An eyewitness told ABC News that Bullock, "came in with about eight friends, sat down and had a couple cocktails. They just enjoyed themselves. Nobody got up on the table and danced."

But according to Dianne McManus, a member of the Southern Soul Allstars, the band that performed that night, Bullock and her friends did get out on the dance floor.

"They came out and danced and took a bunch of pictures," McManus told People.

"She's real sweet," the eyewitness told ABC News, adding that Bullock has been coming to Jackson Hole for years. "She gave her cocktail waitress her autograph, and she's a good tipper."

Pictures from Bullock’s fun-filled day ended up on Instagram.

Handler posted a photo of Bullock and her sister Gesine, nose-to-nose, earlier on Thursday.

Comedian Whitney Cummings posted a pic of the bar's red neon sign, along with the caption, "Now I know where all the cowboys have gone. Let's go make some bad choices!"
