LOOSE LIPS:
"Even in my life with Jada, like I'm a hopeless romantic, but romance is not love. That's not what love is. That fluffy, fancy, pretty stuff is actually anti-love. It keeps you away from love. Love is really born of surviving with somebody."

??? Guess Who ???

Which actress and director are reuniting for DC's female led 'Gotham City Sirens'?



'Property Brothers' star Drew Scott engaged to Linda Phan
Property Brothers star Drew Scott is headed to the altar.

The 38-year-old HGTV television personality announced his engagement to girlfriend Linda Phan on social media Wednesday after six years of dating.

"From the first moment I met Linda, back in 2010, I knew she was special. And last night I became the luckiest man on the planet when she said #ido," he wrote on Instagram.

Scott proposed Tuesday evening at Piano Piano restaurant in Toronto, People reported. He had secretly recorded a version of the Train song "Marry Me" and played the track while he and Phan were having dinner.

"I've never met another woman like her and once you do, you want to be with her forever," the star told the magazine.

"I've had to be as stealthy as a ninja to pull this off," he admitted, adding that he's been carrying around the engagement ring for weeks and planning all details of the proposal offline.

Scott and Phan celebrated with their family and friends at a surprise engagement party after dinner. Scott's twin brother and Property Brothers co-star, Jonathan Scott, and elder brother, J.D. Scott, were among the guests.

Drew and Jonathan Scott have starred on Property Brothers since 2011. The series follows the siblings as they help home buyers purchase and renovate fixer-uppers. It airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.


??? Guess Who ???

Which actress and director are reuniting for DC's female led 'Gotham City Sirens'?

Margot Robbie is set to suit up as Harley Quinn once again in a new female led ensemble film helmed by Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

The project titled Gotham City Sirens, will bring together a collection of female villains from Batman's rogues gallery including, but not limited to, the iconic whip-wielding Catwoman and the seductive Poison Ivy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie has also signed on as executive producer with the script being handled by Geneva Robertson-Dworet who has recently penned the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot and Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes 3.

Ayer is also producing.

Gotham City Sirens will mark the second time Ayer and Robbie have collaborated together on a villain-focused team-up film following Suicide Squad which despite being panned by critics, grossed more than $745.6 million worldwide.

Robbie had the standout role in the film as Harley Quinn, the Joker's equally psychotic girlfriend who remains one of DC Comics most popular female characters.

The film was first reported on in May as a Harley Quinn standalone film that would include appearances by the heroic Birds of Prey featuring Batgirl.

In September, Robbie signed a first look deal with Warner Bros. to produce films through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner as she further dabbles in the realm of producing. Gotham City Sirens appears to fall under that deal.

On Monday, Ayer tweeted out a comic book image of Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Harley Quinn with the caption "#Sirens4ever." The image calls back to DC Comics' former comic book series of the same name by writer Paul Dini and artist Guillem March.

The comic series also included appearances from Batman villain and love interest Talia al Ghul, the daughter of the villainous Ra's al Ghul.
