People reports: “They decided early in the summer to break off their engagement and have remained friends,” a rep for the Dancing with the Stars judge tells PEOPLE.
Sloan, 40, proposed to Inaba, 44, on Live! With Regis and Kelly in March 2011.
In the weeks following the surprise proposal, Inaba gushed about how the duo planned to have a seaside wedding so that their guests could walk barefoot on the sand. The ocean, she told PEOPLE, “has such a spiritual meaning. It’s so vast and yet it unites everyone,” Inaba said last year. “We want everybody to get their feet wet in the water after we say our vows.”
Inaba will be back for Dancing‘s 15th season, which kicks off Sept. 24 on ABC.
People reports: The nuptials come on the heels of two other stars from the same film getting married. Last month, Katherine LaNassa wed actor Grant Show, and a week earlier, the movie’s star Zach Galifianakis celebrated his own nuptials.
Johnson and Miner, who met while attending University of Southern California, wed on Aug. 26 in Palos Verdes, Calif., at La Venta Inn. The bride, 28, chose an Enzoani ivory lace mermaid dress. For a personal touch, she added a veil, which she borrowed from a happily married friend. The groom wore a grey Calvin Klein suit.
Fellow actress Daisy Betts did the party favors, which were “personalized bottles of olive oil, since I love cooking,” says Johnson. Actress-designer India de Beaufort made the couple’s favorite carrot cake. And Angelina Panelli did the hair and makeup, including a style change after the ceremony and before the reception.
The couple stayed at the Terranea in Palos Verdes during the wedding before honeymooning in Jamaica. Then, the newlyweds made a trip to New York to see their alma mater, USC, play Syracuse University and also celebrate the bride’s 28th birthday.
“I just heard about [the wedding],” Lochte told PEOPLE Monday. “I didn’t even know she had a boyfriend until someone told me after I said I had a crush on her.”
Not that the single athlete has any hard feelings towards Reynolds for taking Lively off the market.
“That’s great for them,” he said. “I just want to congratulate them and wish them the best.”
And maybe Lochte – who will guest star on 90210 in October – is ready to move on to another celebrity crush.
“I met Paris Hilton at [Brian Atwood's cocktail party] last week,” Lochte said of his New York Fashion Week rendezvous. “I got to hang out with her. She’s a really sweet girl. Very attractive, I must say.”

Blake Lively and her love Ryan Reynolds tied the knot earlier today, and they got married reportedly in a rustic barn , where there planner Tara Guerard of Soiree in Charleston, South Carolina for her to create an intimate wedding.
People reports: “From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration,” according to the magazine, which promises more details in its December issue.
The ceremony took place at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., Sunday just outside of Charleston. “Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favorite towns,” according to the magazine.
Lively wore a one-of-a-kind Marchesa couture bridal ball gown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery.
Her bridesmaids wore blush silk chiffon Marchesa gowns with crystal embroidered detail. The women all wore shoes from Christian Louboutin.
The groom and groomsmen donned Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders designed by Ryan’s friend Christopher Bailey.
The couple exchanged rings by Lorraine Schwartz.
The wedding, first reported by PEOPLE, also had a reception held in a white tent at the plantation. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live for guests.
“This is the simplest form of myself. I look in the mirror and it’s like, ‘Hey, there you go. What’s up, girl?’ For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory. Tomorrow I may want a wig down to my butt and I’m gonna rock it, and the next day I may want a big Afro and I’m gonna rock that too…”—Jill Scott
Jill Scott has much to be excited about these days. After a tumultuous few years that saw the end of her first marriage, a broken engagement to her son’s father, an acrimonious split from her longtime record label Hidden Beach and the abrupt end of her HBO series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, life is looking up for the singer.
She’s a mother and a maverick; she’s starring in a TV movie — Lifetime’s all-Black revamp of the 1980’s classic Steel Magnolias — and she’s still packing in crowds on tour. Here, the soulful songstress—rocking a close-cropped natural for the October issue cover—talks to ESSENCE about “the lights coming on”after turning 40, finding her stride… and what’s next on the horizon.
Here are some highlights from her interview:
Knowing her husband Keith Lieberthal, was “the one:” “I think the true moment I knew I was going to marry him was when he told me I needed to raise my bar when it came to men. He was shocked at how I never expected him to pull a chair out for me. I didn’t understand what chivalry was. I had never experienced it. It was such a turn on!”
On juggling work and family: ”When Keith and I come home, we put our BlackBerrys, iPhones, computer and iPads away and don’t make it a focal part of the home. The crazy outside doesn’t come into our house.”
Should Alicia and Peter Florek on The Good Wife get back together: ”It’s so hard to give a definitive answer to that question. I think they’re good together. But it’s a tricky dilemma. Politics is sexy and Chris Noth has that: He’s 6-foot-2 and he’s got a strong jaw and a deep voice and you kinda have to go like this [she looks up] when you talk to him, and it’s a very strange aphrodisiac. But I just don’t know. I don’t know if I could ever forgive my husband if he cheated.”
People reports: “I actually didn’t know until last night, but I think it’s fantastic,” Badgley, who still costars on the CW show with Lively, tells PEOPLE. “I couldn’t be happier for her.”
Badgley and Lively, both 25, became a couple during filming of their CW show Gossip Girl, and broke up in 2010. (He’s now dating Zoe Kravitz.) Still, he thinks that the newlyweds are “pretty spot-on.”
I’m so happy for her,” continued Badgley, who learned of the wedding by reading reports and speaking to “people who are close to her.”
Added the actor of his ex’s relationship with Reynolds, 35: “I think it’s everything that it should be.”
