Trishelle Cannatella, Real World: Las Vegas star and former contestant on MTV's The Challenge, is engaged!
The former reality show contestant and Playboy model, 36, posted a photo to Instagram on Monday after her boyfriend, Louisiana fighter pilot John Hensz, proposed the day before. The photo, shown below, features the couple kissing under a parasol and surrounded by a band.
In an interview about her engagement with TooFab, Cannatella admitted that she was completely surprised by the proposal because she thought she was just enjoying a casual Sunday brunch with her now-fiancé and her sister.
"My engagement was amazing," Cannatella said. "He completely surprised me. We went to brunch at Brennan's with my sister then walked outside and saw my best friend standing there with a few friends listening to a jazz band. I thought we just ran into them randomly then we walked down the street and I saw more of my friends."
"At that point, I realized that the jazz band was following us and we had police escorts," Canatella explained. "Then ran into more friends who gave me a parasol. So we all danced down the street in the French Quarter until we reached Jackson Square and my daddy and step mom and more friends were there and he got down on one knee in the park in front of the church with the band playing! It was insane. He had to get a city permit for the second line and everything, I was so shocked. He did so well with the ring too!!"
Shortly after getting engaged, Cannatella wrote on Twitter, "Soooooo in other news....some poor guy asked me to be his wife. And I said hell yes." You can see the post below.
The ring is a huge square cut diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds on a band covered in diamonds. Talk about a sparkler! (A close-up can be seen on TooFab.)
