Winner:

Orange Is the New Black cast and crew. Maybe they fell in love in a hopeless place, but the ladies of the Litchfield Correctional Facility are having some great relationship news. Not one, but two of the show's biggest stars announced their engagements this week. Fan-favorite Samira Wiley, known for playing Poussey Washington on the Netflix hit, posted a photo of her new bling with fiance Lauren Morelli, a writer on the show. Wiley posted the photo on Twitter with a simple "yes." Then Laura Prepon pulled a total Alex Vause move and stole some of the spotlight when she showed up to The Girl on a Train premiere with a not-so-subtle engagement ring with her fiance, actor Ben Foster. Congrats all around.

Loser(s):

Kardashian trolls. Regardless of your feels for the Kardashian clan, armed robbery is no joke. For those of you living under a rock, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint by masked men posing as police officers while in Paris for fashion week. No amount of money or fame can make that less of a horrifying event to live through. But, of course, social media was not kind to the reality TV star after the traumatic event, saying she was "asking for it" or worse, that she should have been raped and murdered. Let's still remember that Kim Kardashian is human, a mom with two young children. The Internet can be a sick place, and as model Chrissy Teigen put it so bluntly on Twitter, "Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets." Late-night host James Corden also had some advice for the Internet: "Regardless of whatever you think of someone, it's someone being held at gunpoint in a room. Just don't say anything. Also, you don't need to say anything. Just don't do anything!"
