A whole week's worth of celebutainment is a lot, we know, which is why we do our very best to break it down for you right here every Saturday.
So without further ado, here's your guide to all the news from the last seven days that was fit to print (and, in some cases, mercilessly mock). Have at it!
KRAZY TALK: Kim Kardashian cried foul when OK! ran its "I'm Having a Baby!" cover featuring the engaged E! star. Not so much because she's not having a baby (but for the record, she's not preggers), but because the magazine was using foul, foul trickery in its wording. When inquiring minds bother to open the mag, they'll see that the story isn't even about an actual pregnancy, but about Kim's supposed plan to one day have a baby. Someone needs a lesson in semantics....Plus, some exclusive scoop on how Kris Humphries popped the question.
OMFG: Nude self-portraits of Blake Lively that weren't really nude self-portraits of Blake Lively hit the Internet, prompting her to sic her legal dogs on whoever dared to first post them. Whatever they are.
NO LONGER THERE FOR HER?: Don't you hate it when your best girlfriend is super supportive, but then gets all high-and-mighty on you when your relationship behavior starts reminding her of her ex's? Well, that was supposedly happening to Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, with Jen disapproving of Court remaining legally married to David Arquette while running aroundlike a single gal. Well, we hope Courteney is a fan of Justin Theroux, because Aniston's rep says the two remain dear friends.
SCARY SMASHUP: "Beautiful Girls" singer Sean Kingston suffered a broken jaw, a fractured wrist and water inhalation after crashing his jet ski into Palm Island Bridge while cruising Miami Beach's Biscayne Bay. The 21-year-old was hospitalized in critical condition and his recovery is expected to take at least six weeks. Never Say Never (you can say that again) buddy Justin Bieber was among the pals who tweeted their regards.
SACRÉ BLEU!: Bradley Cooper became yummier than a George Clooney-Johnny Depp sandwich on whole-wheat David Beckham by showing off his fluent French on national station TF1. He switched back to English, however, when he and Rob Lowe unloaded on Sarah Jessica Parker on The Graham Norton Show.
JENNY FROM THE WHAT?!: Jennifer Lopez's pain-in-the-ass ex-hubby, Ojani Noa, is back in business, this time looking to sell X-rated footage of his former missus to the porn purveyor with the deepest pocketbook. You can bet that J.Lo's legal team is battening down the hatches, bringing out the big guns, getting ready to rumble, etc.
DANCES WITH RUMORS: Maksim Chmerkovskiy personally shot down suggestions that his super-flirty weekend with Cheryl Burke in Vegas was anything more than time spent with a friend, despite what at least looked like a makeout sesh.
SERIOUSLY?: Yes, Lindsay Lohan's ankle monitor went off while she was supposed to be on house arrest, but no, she didn't do anything wrong. Chalk the false alarm up to malfunctioning equipment (for a change). When the cops arrived, she was on her patio reading scripts and practicing the art of product placement.
LOVE HURTS: Justin Timberlake admitted to both having a long relationship and breaking up with Jessica Biel in an in-depth interview with Vanity Fear. He wishes everyone didn't think they ended because he cheated on her a lot. But apparently things were comfortable enough between them to enjoy some food and conversation at a party in Brentwood this week.
RUING THE DAY: Paris Hilton and mom Kathy shared tears and a hug as they reminisced about the horrible time when Paris got famous for being in a sex tape.
ROYAL FLUSH: Newlywed Prince William is back to playing on his ponies, this time at a charity polo match in Chester, England...Pippa Middleton and friends took an excursion to Paris, where she dined at Cinq-Mars and danced at Le Montana.

We know she likes guys who can fit her in their pockets...Are the Spice Girls heading out on tour?
