Internet pin-up Tila Tequila made a shocking announcement in a video posted on Ustream.com on Wednesday morning, December 9 that she is engaged to Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson. The engagement news comes three months after the MTV reality star was hospitalized after allegedly being choked by her now-former boyfriend, football outside linebacker Shawne Merriman.
"We have an announcement," said the 28 year-old beauty, who was accompanied in the video by Casey. " ... So are you ready for this big announcement that's going to change our lives? This is exclusive and going to be all over the news tomorrow, but because I love you guys so much, we are giving you the exclusive first -- Tila army fans -- tonight, my girlfriend has asked me to marry her!"
In line with the announcement, Tila then showed off her engagement ring, which she claimed is a "17-carat diamond" sparkle. Speaking of the gem she even gushed, "It's so fat you can't even see it! So yeah, my baby got me this 17-carat ring. My baby takes care of me. Beat that J.Lo! Beat that Khloe and Lamar!"
It is "not fake, because my baby is a f****** baller. She's a billionaire! She's the heiress of Johnson and Johnson. Anyway, we are going to make love tonight for our honeymoon," she continued, before then adding, "Casey Johnson and Miss Tila Tequila are officially engaged. Woo!"
Also in the same video, Tila revealed that she and Casey have "a lot of work to do to plan a wedding" and that they're "very happy." She enthused, "We're what you call U-Haul lesbians, where you meet and fall in love and move in the next day and have kids."
