fiance Vito Cammisano have responded.
TMZ argued that proof of the engagement
can be found on Twitter, pointing to a congratulatory tweet that Sam
liked by a college friend of Cammisano's.
The couple set off on a European
vacation and was happily sharing photos of their journey on Twitter,
Instagram and Facebook.

congratulated the couple on social media. A
NOH8 Campaign tweet alone has been retweeted 860 times and
favorited 1,159 times as of Sunday afternoon.
