Life just got a whole lot richer for Billy Ray Harris!
The homeless man, who captured the attention of the nation when he returned a diamond and platinum engagement ring to a woman who accidentally dropped it in his beggar’s cup in February, has finally been reunited with his estranged family.
Billy Ray had not seen his relatives for nearly 16 years, but his act of honesty helped propel his story into the spotlight and enabled his family to track him down.
“I never would’ve thought this,” Billy Ray Harris of Kansas City, Mo., said. ”This was a total shock.”
“I’d been worried sick about my family since the last time I saw them,” Harris told TODAY.com. “I totally lost contact with them back in the 90′s…I was kind of down in the dumps, and on the verge of giving up.”
Since his act of honestly February 8, which saw him on return Sarah Darling’s ring, Billy Ray has seen good fortune smiling on him.
Having previously lived under a bridge, thanks to 8,000 well-wishers who have had donated more than $183,000, Billy Ray now has a home and a part-time job.
“I got an air mattress now, it’s like living like a king compared to where I was,” he said.
Miley Cyrus is continuing in her attempt to throw off the impression that all is well in her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
After last week taking to Twitter to explain why she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring, claiming it was being fixed, she has just posted a new snap where the 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond can be clearly seen on her finger.
The 20-year-old has not been seen with Hemsworth since claims he got close to actress January Jones at a party during Oscar weekend in February. He flew home to his native Australia, with sources telling the NY Post, that he needed to spend time with his family and friends
“Miley and Liam are done; it’s over,” a source told the newspaper. “She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.”
Another insider close to the couple added: “They have broken up before, and are broken up again now. There was drama because she suspected he had a wandering eye. And she recently tweeted a denial that he cheated.
“While Miley has insisted they are still together, right now they are very, very much apart,” the insider said.
What do you think about Miley donning the ring? A sign that there is no trouble in paradise?
This is a feel-good story that should restore your faith in humanity again. And it also proves that money cannot buy a good heart. Or soul.
A homeless man in Kansas City, Mo., who sleeps beneath a bridge, was begging for spare change Friday when a woman stopped and gave him a donation.
An hour later, Billy Ray Harris realized that it was not a few stray coins that the woman had dropped in his cup, but her diamond and platinum engagement ring.
Sarah Darling, the woman in question, went on to explain how she mistakenly placed the ring in Harris’ cup to KCTV5.
“My rings were bothering me, so I put them in my coin purse,” she said.
Upon realizing the next day that her ring was missing, Darling thought that her pricey bauble was gone forever.
“I was so incredibly upset because, I mean, more than the value of the ring, it had sentimental value,” she said.
She decided to return to the same spot in The Plaza where she had first encountered Harris in the hope, that against the odds, he would still have her ring. Squatting down beside him, she asked if he remembered her.
“I don’t know. I see a lot of faces,” Harris replied.
Harris, who could have pawned the ring for a sizable amount, then pulled the ring from his pocket and presented it to Darling.
“It seemed like a miracle. I thought for sure there was no way I would get it back,” Darling told KCTV5. “I think in our world we often jump to like the worst conclusion, and it just makes you realize that there are good people out there.”
Darling rewarded Harris with all the cash she was carrying in her wallet, but the best gift of all for Harris was knowing that he did the right thing.
“My grandfather was a reverend. He raised me from the time I was 6 months old, and thank the good lord. It’s a blessing, but I do still have some character,” Harris said.
This week we finally got a glimpse at Jennifer Aniston’s engagement ring, and while there has been some lamenting in the media that the ring is too big (we are not of that school of thought), who doesn’t want to emulate her style?
It’s the engagement that has everyone buzzing. And finally, after years of a string of disastrous relationships, Jennifer Aniston has found her ”one”.
And, Life & Style magazine, which features the engagement news on its cover in their issue which hits stands tomorrow, are exclusively reporting all the details about Jen’s much-talked-about ring!
“It’s a huge emerald-cut diamond,” a friend of Jen’s tells Life & Styleexclusively. “It’s a rectangle with tapered diamond baguettes on the sides.”
The source tells the mag that the ring is estimated be 8 carats, adding, “It’s beautiful.”
The 43-year-old actress is said to–and rightfully so– beaming with happiness.
“Just after Jen got engaged, she called all her friends and told them about it,” the friend reveals. “She was so happy and said she loves the ring. I think she was overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it!”
Speaking of her relationship with Theroux, Aniston has gushed: ”I’m very happy. I’m extremely lucky, and I’m extremely happy.”
She added: ”Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me — and what I won’t settle for.”
We think it is safe to say, that for anyone who has followed the trials and tribulations of Aniston’s love life, there is a sense of joy that she has finally found the happiness she so deserves.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Pitt’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante tells PEOPLE. “It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
In recent months, Brad Pitt has talked about finally marrying Angelina Jolie. And it seems he is a man of his word with reports emerging today that Angelina has recently been spotted wearing an enormous sparkler on her engagement finger.
And the jewelry designer, who collaborated with Pitt on the diamond bauble, has confirmed that it is an engagement ring.
“I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt,” a representative for the jeweler, who collaborated with the actress on her Style of Jolie collection, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution,” Procop says. “The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
Angelina was spotted wearing the ring April 11 at a private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries.
But what has us puzzled, is after all these years, why would they bother going through an engagement period and not just marry? It’s not as though they have only begun courting.
