CBS3's JAN CARABEO has had quite a few life changes as of late. In March, she moved from Hartford, Conn., to come work in Philly as a reporter.

And now she's engaged.

Carebeo said yes to Andrew Adamson, a reporter at WPRI in Providence, R.I.

No wedding date set yet, but I hear that the couple are excited about putting down roots in Philadelphia.

HOME run

Big names abounded at the Project HOME 25th anniversary gala on Tuesday night, including Jon Bon Jovi, who referred to HOME executive director Sister Mary Scullion as his "friend, mentor and boss." The event was emceed by David Gregory, of "Meet the Press," who took a selfie with Scullion during the event.

Phillies co-owner John Middleton and wife Leigh were given the 2014 Golden Heart for their work with the homeless-advocacy organization, which raised $2.1 million for its mission at Tuesday night's gala.

Who else did I peep at the event? Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and wife Tina, former state Sen. Vince Fumo, actor David Morse, WMMR's Pierre Robert and Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts, among other superrich people.

Although, when I approached Bon Jovi to ask him about his longtime involvement with Project HOME, he wasn't having any of it. Maybe JBJ's just shy offstage?

* Bon Jovi will be back in Philly on May 7 to play an acoustic set at A Night of Broadway Stars, an annual fundraiser benefiting Covenant House Pennsylvania, a nonprofit serving at-risk and homeless youth. Other big Broadway names include Capathia Jenkins ("Dreamgirls"), Stephanie Block ("The Boy from Oz"), Danny Zolli ("Jesus Christ Superstar"), Craig Schulman ("Les Miserables"), Carter Calvert ("Cats") and John Treacy Egan ("Nice Work If You Can Get It").

About that handle . . .

Mayor Nutter answered questions on Twitter yesterday for 6ABC, and was quite the sport about answering any and all questions, including from those with, uh, colorful Twitter handles.

@fuc_dat asked the mayor what the city was doing about "the eyesore" that is the Beeber-Wynnefield Annex building in West Philly. Despite the Twitter user name, Nutter responded, "We have been working to find a re-use or another owner for that building, I'm very much aware of that property, thanks."

Hey, at least it was a good question . . .

Philly boy gets 'Devious'

Lower Merion's Gideon Glick will appear as a recurring character on Lifetime's "Devious Maids," which premiered its second season on Sunday. Glick tells me he'll play a character named Ty McKay, but can't get into more details. Series creator Marc Cherry is known for keeping his plots on the down-low. Glick was in the original cast of Broadway's "Spring Awakening."

Glick joins another Philadelphian, Ana Ortiz, daughter of former City Councilman Angel Ortiz, who plays main character Marisol.

Check out Glick and Ortiz starting in the second season's second episode at 10 p.m.

Critical bass

Here's one you don't get in the gossip column very often. ESPN cameras will hit the Delaware waterfront Aug. 7 to 10 when the Bassmasters fishing tournament hits our shores. The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation hasn't announced the news yet but I hear that the bass fishing community is abuzz.

Come on down

Philly's own Ellen Matthesen-Winser will be on "The Price is Right" tomorrow. See her yuk it up with Drew Carey at 11 a.m. on CBS.

Top docs have good taste

Will you look at that? Two of the Top Docs on Philadelphia magazine's annual list have excellent taste in husbands. Dr. Mary T. Hofmann, of Abington Memorial Hospital, geriatric medicine, and Dr. Shelly B. Hayes, Fox Chase, radiation oncology, are married to the People Paper's Rich Hofmann and Marcus Hayes, respectively.
