August 17th, 2013 3:07pm EDT
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.
Hayden Panettiere Is Engaged: After getting back together with boxer Wladimir Klitschko, it appears Hayden is getting ready to settle down - and is now sporting a giant rock on her ring finger to prove it. She was spotted at LAX with the telling jewelry.
Verdict: Unknown. Hayden has been extremely private with her relationship with Wladimir this time around; I t took almost a month before she confirmed she was back with him. So while the ring certainly hints at an engagement, we're going to wait until the two announce it to the public.
Courteney Cox Is Engaged: Speaking of engagements, Star reports Courteney is tying the knot with her boyfriend Brian Van Holt after she was spotted with an engagement band.
Verdict: False. A source tells Gossip Cop that the two are "absolutely NOT engaged." Cox may be eager to settle down again, but we doubt she'd move so fast - it was only two months ago it was reported they were dating.
Cory Montieth's Glee Character To Die From Overdose: We had a similar rumor a few weeks ago when it was confirmed that Glee will deal with the loss of Montieth by having an episode in which his character struggles with drug addiction. However, will Finn actually die from using drugs, like the actor who portrayed him?
Verdict: False. Although series creator Ryan Murphy admits it was considered. He told Deadline, "At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered.
"How somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way."
Miss Teen USA Nude Photo Scandal: Did newly-crowned Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf take nude photos - only to have someone steal them and blackmail her?
Verdict: True. However, Wolf is claiming she didn't take the photos. Instead, she says that the photos she is being blackmailed with were not taken by her and that a hacker was able to control her webcam and take photos while she was unaware. Wolf told Today.com, "I wasn’t aware that somebody was watching me. The light didn’t even go on, so I had no idea." The FBI is currently investigating.
