Is Jannet Jackson getting married to Wissam Al Manna soon?:

In case you weren't aware, superstar singer Janet Jackson has been dating her love, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana, 36, since 2009. Get this: They've kept their relationship very private and became engaged last year.

And yes, it was last year that Al Mana is said to have asked Jackson to be his wife, presenting the gorgeous 45-year-old singer with a 15-carat diamond ring. On the other hand, if that's true, Jackson denied it at the time.

Back then, she was preparing for her very intimate tour and chose not to focus on life decisions like marriage. However, now that her show is wrapping up on Sept. 1, she obviously now feels ready to become the hot new bride of Al Mana.

A source told National Enquirer magazine, "Janet's telling friends that an official engagement will come by summer's end, and that she and Al Mana will marry in late 2011-and they're shopping for an even bigger diamond ring to celebrate their official engagement." Other sources say Al Mana has been good for the performer, boosting her confidence and being very supportive. The two have also talked about starting a family.

Let's wish Jackson and Al Mana many years of love and happiness.

Brandy Guest stars in several forthcoming "90210" episodes:

I just learned that singing and acting star Brandy will be featured on the hit TV series "90210" for a major recurring role in season four.

The talented 32-year-old Grammy-winning Brandy has signed on to play a charismatic young politician running for Congress against the conservative uncle of Teddy (Trevor Donovan). Her character, notes TVLine.com, is Marissa Jackson-Lewis, a cross between Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Marissa hires Silver (Jessica Stroup) to make a campaign video to boost the youth vote.

Brandy is best known to TV fans as Moesha from the long-running UPN sitcom of the same name. She also guest starred in four episodes of "Drop Dead Diva" earlier this year and competed on the 11th season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

Season four of "90210" premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m. Here's wishing Brandy another successful starring television role.

Here's wishing you and yours a very happy week ahead.
