Drew Carey gets engaged; women mourn nationwide

Drew Carey: Prime Cleveland beefcake
If you see throngs of sobbing women draped in long black veils today, rest assured they are not mourning the death of William F. Buckley — as sad as that may be. No, they’ve just heard much worse news: Drew Carey, Cleveland’s most eligible bachelor, is no longer on the market. The loveable Price is Right star just confirmed on Regis and Kelly this morning that he is, in fact, engaged. On the positive side, thousands of potential suitors no longer have to pretend he’s funny… Carey’s proposal to girlfriend Nicole Jaracz was unexpected. So unexpected, in fact, that Carey didn’t bother to get he a ring. The two were driving home one night and, right as they pulled up into Jaracz’s driveway, the comedian thought “what the heck?” and popped the question. Jaracz said “yes” and Carey slid off the Tiffany ring that he’d bought her on a recent shopping expedition, then slipped it back on. How romantic! The two love birds are currently living in LA. Sullen would-be paramours can take heart in the fact that the comedian won’t be shedding any of those many excess pounds soon: Jaracz is a recent culinary school graduate. – Rebecca Meiser
