    Rick Fox thinking about a ring
     
    Love is in the air! After a string of celebrity engagements, Rick Fox is thinking about taking the plunge again, too. 
     
    UsMagazine.com asked the actor whether there will be wedding bells for him and girlfriend Eliza Dushku, Rick said,"I hear them now. We’ve been honest about that conversation, and we’ve had it."
     
    That still doesn’t mean Rick, most famous for his turns on "The Game" and "Dancing With the Stars," is running to the nearest Tiffany’s. For now, he’s continuing to take it slow. "I’ve failed in marriage before, and this will be her first marriage," he said. "So we want to make sure the foundation is laid in a responsible way."
