Sounds like Kelly Clarkson’s reign as Lord Of The Jane Austen Ring has come to a close!
In case you didn’t know, last year Kelly bid on and won a gold and turquoise ring that once belonged to the Pride & Prejudice author.
Unfortunately when she tried to bring it home, the bauble was flagged as a "national treasure" and couldn’t leave the UK!
Since then, the ring has been sitting in London waiting for a solution to present itself — and it finally has!
On Monday, Jane Austen’s House Museum announced

Kelly Clarkson may have a blingin' canary yellow diamond on her left ring finger, but she's got another ring of MAJOR sentimental value on her right hand as well!
Fiance Brandon Blackstock surprised Kelly with a turquoise ring that's almost the exact replica of a ring once owned by Jane Austen, of whom the singer is a HUGE fan!
As we mentioned before, Kelly bought the original ring at a London auction, but wasn't able to actually fly it overseas with her!

Remember that Jane Austen ring that sold for $236,000 earlier this year to an anonymous buyer?
Turns out it was Kelly Clarkson who had the winning bid!
Unfortunately, after spending all that money, she can't take it back to the US because the ring's been declared a "national treasure".
WTF!? Shouldn't Sotheby's have mentioned that before!?
Kelly hasn't said what she's going to do with the ring, you know, besides leaving it in the UK.

We couldn't think of a BETTER choice!
The film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is well into development, with Craig Gillespie directing and Natalie Portman serving as a producer, and now, it appears that the role of Elizabeth Bennett has been offered to Emma Stone!
As we all know, gurl had experience dealing with the undead in Zombieland, so we think she'd be able to hold her own in this one just fine! Just a question of whether or not she wants to branch away from this genre!
Personally, we hope not! We'd love to see her get her Jane Austen on!
What do U think?? Should Emma do Pride & Prejudice & Zombies??

We haven't heard anything about the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for quite some time, but now it looks like wheels are moving again!
We've just learned that Fright Night writing/directing team Marti Noxon and Craig Gillespie will be teaming up once again for Zombies.
The Fighter director David O. Russell wrote the script before leaving the project, and now Noxon will rework it before they move forward with production.
For those of you who haven't read the book, the story "retells Jane Austen’s classic tale about the romance between the independent Elizabeth Bennet and the snooty Mr. Darcy"…but there are zombies involved.
Sounds like it'll be a while before this movie actually starts production, but we'll keep our eyes peeled! Should def be a fun flick!
Are U excited to hear that wheels are moving once again on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
