    Diddy proposed to Cassie?

    There’s buzz that Diddy might be preparing to settle down! According to MediaTakeOut.com, Cassie is telling people that she’s engaged, but is waiting to debut her ring until an official announcement is made.

    Meanwhile Diddy flew out to Los Angeles for the Golden Globes this weekend with another unidentified woman on his arm. The New York Post reports when he found out that there was only one seat in for him in first class, he gave the spot to his bodyguard and sat in business class with his traveling companion.

    When asked why he opted to downgrade, Diddy said, "“I’m fine. There was a time I only rode coach!”

    Diddy’s Golden Globe playmate didn’t stick around for long, though. A source told Celebuzz.com that the Bad Boy mogul was spotted getting close with Cameron Diaz at SoHo House. “They were kissing, and seemed very happy together,” the witness stated.

    Plymouth celebrates a ‘dream realized’

    Four Black men are being honored for their service nearly 200 years after their passing. Plato Turner, Prince Goodwin, Quamany Quash and Cato Howe of Plymouth, Massachusetts, will be remembered with a sign marking their old settlement.

    The town gave the men, three of whom were former slaves, some land in an area known as Parting Ways after the Revolutionary War. There, they established the New Guinea Settlement along with their families.

    Plymouth.Patch.com reports that a sign explaining the significance of this plot will be posted today. It is the culmination of a 35-year effort by Parting Ways, The Museum of Afro-American Ethnohistory, to ensure that the land gets some recognition.

    "It is a celebration as well as a thank you to the faithful and positive members and supporters, past and present. A ‘Dream Realized,’" said former Parting Ways president Lynda Thomas-LeGay.
