The outspoken TV personalities are both getting married!

Both Sherri Shepherd and Vivica A. Fox announced their recent engagements Jan. 4, and the women are thrilled to be walking down the aisle.

Sherri, 43, is set to be married to television writer Lamar Sally. People reports the proposal took place on Dec. 26, 2010, after Lamar asked permission from Sherri’s 5-year-old son, Jeffrey. The couple have dated for more than one year.

The two are scheduling an August wedding in Chicago, and the engagement will certainly be a ‘Hot Topic’ when The View, which Sherri co-hosts, returns with new episodes Jan. 10.

Vivica, 46, was engaged to Atlanta club promoter Omar ‘Slim’ White, 27. The couple, who have also dated for more than one year, were vacationing at the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach when Omar popped the question on Dec. 26.

Vivica, who was appropriately the host of The Cougar, a reality show about older women who pursue younger men, told People she was “very happy” with the engagement.
