TODAY'S COLUMN is being written through a cascade of joyful tears. Kim and Kanye are engaged. This is such epochal news that we are afraid to let ourselves believe such a monumental event could possibly happen. But it did. Kim Kardashian is poised to spend the rest of her life (can't believe we wrote that with a straight face) with rap deity and all-around gift-to-the-universe Kanye West . We're not sure if today's sighting of unicorns flying beneath multiple rainbows was just a coincidence, but we do know this: Yeezy popped the question Monday night - with the help of a 15-carat diamond ring - during Kimmy's 33rd-birthday bash at San Francisco's AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, which he'd rented out for the occasion.

Their love burns with ardor. And don't try to say otherwise. Kanye West says his liaison with Kim Kardashian isn't a sham, a publicity stunt.
