Composer David Foster and singer-actress Katharine McPhee are taking their relationship to the next level with an announcement of their engagement last week.
Foster, 68, popped the question to McPhee, 33, during their Europe vacation.
The American Idol alum revealed details of how her beau asked her the question on her Instagram account. In a screen capture of her text message with Just Jared founder Jared Eng, McPhee shared that Foster asked her the question at the top of a mountain in Anacapri, Italy.
“Totally dark. Thankfully he didn’t push off the cliff,” wrote the Smash star in a series of message.
McPhee and Foster have been dating for a year. They first met when Foster served as one of the guest judges in one of the episodes of American Idol season 5 where McPhee was a contestant.

By Roel Hoang Manipon, Assistant Editor — June 13, 2018 12:09 AMAs Father’s Day approaches, reminders of a father’s crucial role and his sacrifices become that much more visible. Watsons, a large Asian health and beauty retailer, recently released a video (bit.ly/WATSONSHAPPYFATHERSDAY), honoring fathers in time for Father’s Day. The video utilizes the current fad in comic book and movie superheroes, emphasizing that fathers are real-life superheroes. The campaign also encourages people to make their fathers look and feel great. Here are some suggestions to treat fathers: Take him to lunch or dinner at his favorite restaurant and foot the bill. Now that you’re a professional, take your dad on a Father’s Day date. Surprise him. Even better than a meal at a restaurant is a meal you made yourself. With YouTube tutorials, it is easy to prepare and cook a good meal. Your dad will be happy and proud, no matter what the results. Give your father the gift of good health by putting together vitamins and supplements so he will be healthier. Dad may no longer be young, but he can live a long and fulfilling life if he takes care of his health. Book him a session or two with a fitness trainer who can come up with a realistic health program for him. Your dad may be too busy or not have time to exercise, but with the right information, he will have no excuses and get right on it. More than any material thing, your father will appreciate the gift of love. Make time from your busy schedule to be with him and reconnect, not just for lunch or dinner. Send him an SMS everyday or give him a call to let him know that even though you are already an adult, he is still your superhero.

By Renato S. Bisquera — June 16, 2018 12:05 AMWith a natal Sun in Gemini-Moon in Sagittarius in his chart, Donald Trump is a romantic: he believes in the far away and long ago. Things at a distance appeal to him with the result that he is always on the move. Either he is actually travelling or he is getting the satisfaction of mobility in stories and yarns, real and imagined, of out-of-the way places such as those he reads of in romances. This is okay as long as his yarn-spinning stays purely in the realm of the imagination, but when he applies that imagination of his to his friends and stars to tell tall tales about them — look out! He loves to hold the center of the stage and to appear to know the inside dope on any and all subjects — with the result that what he says is frequently unreliable. Not that he means to tell the untruths, but his imagination is so vivid that he really believes what he says and can make others believe it. He must cultivate mental accuracy, for the analytical and scientifically critical bent is not native to him, and he is so gullible as well inventive where stories are concerned. With any encouragement at all, he will believe in ghosts, witches and warlocks, spiritualism and the weird products of séances. Stay away from things like this, for they only feed his imagination with trouble-making imagery. A tendency to tell all he knows and to invent what he doesn’t know is likely to get him into trouble. There isn’t an ounce of malice in his nature, but he can get set whole neighborhoods by the ears with a carelessly dropped hint of scandal. He is romantic, as well as adventurous, and not very constant in love, though when he falls he generally stays put for some time. He is restless, however, and tires of people, and this position frequently leads to more than one marriage. He needs mental training and should forego the reading of fiction for some definite, set line of study, which will do much to overcome his restlessness. He is popular, lively and gay in company, very expressive, and a pretty good listener. His facility in speech and movement makes him a good actor, while his peculiar brand of tact makes it possible for him to succeed in a business or political career. He is a hard person to pin down and can get around a good many situations that would stump others. But he isn’t invulnerable and is likely to meet his match someday, unless he trains himself strictly in logical mental processes, when his quickness, shrewdness and insight into people will carry him far.
