A quick flick through this week's top celebrity tweets will reveal a few things. First, celebrities are taking a stand against nasty gossip, with several taking the time to clear up rumours. Sarah Murdoch tweeted to right some wrongs, while Adam Levine told us what celebrities are really like. Secondly, everyone got quite a scare when news circulated that rapper Lil Wayne was on his deathbed — many celebrities (including Ricki-Lee) tweeted kind words and well-wishes, while his close friend tweeted the facts. Lastly, celebs love to share. Whether it's their love for their gorgeous girlfriend (we're looking at you, Reece Mastin!), their funny side (take a bow, Nicole Richie) or their updated plans (Ellen's still coming to Aus!), we love getting a real-time glimpse into the lives of our fave stars.

A slew of Australian stars dined and partied at Criniti’s in Darling Harbour, Sydney, to celebrate the Italian restaurant’s 10th birthday last night. Rachael Finch made her first public appearance after announcing in this week’s issue of New Idea that she’s pregnant — on the red carpet the former Miss Universe Australia said she’s “hoping for a baby boy,” and kept her growing bump hidden under a peplum dress. Home and Away was well-represented by popular stars Dan Ewing, with his wife Marni, and Rhiannon Fish, who attended Future Music Festival on the weekend with her boyfriend, Reece Mastin. Ricki-Lee Coulter kept herself hydrated by sipping on a Long Island Iced Tea served in a Leaning Tower of Pisa glass, Charlotte Dawson mingled in the crowd, and Samantha Jade entertained the guests with a performance of her hit “What You’ve Done to Me.” Click through for all the party action.

Ricki-Lee Coulter hit Japan for a promotional tour and spent some time signing autographs for fans, while Reece Mastin treated his "lil' rocker" fans to an up-close-and-personal shot of his face. Models Miranda Kerr and Chrissy Teigen both hit the beach this week and shared photos of themselves in sexy bikinis, and cute friends Phoebe Tonkin and Teresa Palmer looked closer than ever at Teresa's movie premiere.

So in saying that, we checked out the Twitter, Instagram etc accounts of home-grown celebrities to collate a series of hot pictures that celebrate an Aussie Summer, sweet couple moments, behind-the-scenes fun and more.

Ricki-Lee Coulter has exciting news to share this morning: she’s engaged! The Australian singer told the latest issue of New Idea (on sale now) that she’s going to get married after her boyfriend of three years, Richard Harrison, popped the question. Just before Richard, a personal trainer, proposed, Ricki-Lee says, “My heart started racing and I was taking deep breaths. I started screaming and said ‘Oh my God’ about four-and-a-half thousand times!”
In 2012 Ricki-Lee, who was previously married to childhood sweetheart Jamie Babbington, had to constantly deny reports she was engaged and told media, “It’s not true. I would be wearing a big-ass ring on my finger.” However she hasn’t ever hidden her affection for Richard and always refers to him as the man who turned her life around.
Congrats to Ricki-Lee and Richard!
