Liam Neeson opens up about losing Natasha 

Liam Neeson is opening up about the death of wife Natasha Richardson. The actor says he threw himself into his work after a freak ski accident claimed the beloved actress’s life in 2009.

“I think I survived by running away some. Running away to work,” he told Esquire magazine.

But he could not escape his feelings of loss — and still cannot, he said.

“That’s the weird thing about grief,” Liam said. “You can’t prepare for it. You think you’re gonna cry and get it over with. You make those plans, but they never work. It hits you in the middle of the night — well, it hits me in the middle of the night. I’m out walking. I’m feeling quite content. And it’s like suddenly, boom. It’s like you’ve just done that in your chest.”

What an eloquent expression of a tremendously deep emotion.

Popping the Question

Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly ready to walk down the aisle. Baby daddy Scott Disick proposed and she said yes, according to Life&Style magazine. The betrothal is set to cap off “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”

“The season finale, which has already been filmed, ends with Scott proposing and Kourtney accepting,” a source close to the reality TV star told the tabloid. “It’s been really hard for them to keep it quiet. She’s so excited for the finale to air this April so she can finally go out in public with her ring on. She wears it at home all the time.”

As fans of the Kardashians’ seemingly infinite number of E! series know, Kourtney and Scott’s relationship has been a rocky one, with her family — notably sister Khloe — making no secret of their disdain for Scott. But apparently they have gradually warmed up to him since son Mason, 1, was born.

“The family is really happy about Scott and Kourtney’s engagement, but they’re trying to keep it a secret so it’s a huge surprise on the show,” an insider said.

Evidently, they failed.

Sudden Split?

Is it over between Amanda Seyfried and Ryan Phillippe? The couple, who had been quietly dating since Halloween, were recently spotted having an intense talk at Chateau Marmont — and just days later, the actor was reportedly flirting with Rihanna.

While chatting up the songbird at a party, “he said something to the effect of, ‘What are you doing tonight?’ and she signaled ‘sleep,’” an onlooker told Us magazine. “She was trying to be polite, but she was genuinely not interested. When a couple of her friends came up to join the conversation, he just walked away.”

So is Amanda still in the picture?

“It’s casual. They’re friends who hang out romantically from time to time and that’s it,” a friend said. “At one point, there was a chance it would develop into something more serious, but it never did. There’s no commitment.”

Apparently not.
