Lauren’s Lowdown: Tom Brady Cleared To Play; ‘Bachelorette’ Alum Engaged

Lauren Kelly

A federal judge ruled in favor of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady yesterday, and said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in suspending him for four games given the lack of proof, and how the rules are spelled out in the league’s collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union. The NFL is appealing, but that could take a long time, so for now Brady’s suspension has been lifted and he will play.

The NFL will appeal the ruling, but that could take months, and possibly up to a year. To speed things up, the NFL would have to prove that they’ll suffer irreparable harm in the meantime, which is unlikely to happen.

If the league DOES win the appeal, they could reinstitute the suspension. But again, that probably wouldn’t be until next season.


Ali Fedotowsky and her TV host boyfriend, Kevin Manno, are engaged, the former Bachelorette announced via Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 3.

So excited to share that Kevin asked me to be his wife and I said YES!!! No actually, I screamed yes. Ha! He proposed yesterday and we had the most beautiful, magical day with our closest friends and can’t wait to celebrate with family back home. Love, the future Mrs. Manno.”


Speaking of ‘The Bachelorette,’ Andi Dorfman’s ex fiancé Josh Murray is officially off the market! (siiiigggggghhhh)

Sources at US Weekly confirm Josh is dating a hot blonde named Anna von Staehle.

He recently posted an Instagram photo of them with his dog, Sabel that said, “What an amazing week with @akatharinav. Sabel and I will see you soon – almost time to migrate south.”

Murray’s new girlfriend graduated from the University of Oregon in 2014, and is from the Napa, Calif., area.


20-year-old Tara Monroe is a junior at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. She got a DUI in March and her license was suspended. But she needed a fast way to get around campus, and she says, “riding a bike sucks.”

So she bought a pink Barbie power wheels off Craigslist. It runs on a 12-volt battery and maxes out at five miles per hour. It also looks ridiculous when an adult is driving it.

She’s been spotted in it all over the campus which has led to TONS of people posting pictures of her on social media. She says, quote, “This is the best way I could’ve gotten my 15 minutes of fame.”

It looks like execs at NBC are ready to fill Donald Trump’s host position for the Celebrity Apprentice

One insider says that Magic Johnson, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban “are all being discussed as Trump replacements on Apprentice.”

Mark’s not interested. He thinks [his ABC series] Shark Tank is a way better show and loves being a part of it.” A rep for Branson adds, “Richard has a very busy schedule of worldwide commitments that would not enable him to do this.”

Trump was fired by the network back in June after his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants. A network rep said in a statement at the time, “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
