BRAND NEW ON E!
Isn't it crazy how much stuff can happen in just seven days?
This past week, we learned that there are some babies brewing, Twitter feuds not happening and that Marilyn Manson can snag a Barbie look-alike.
If you missed all this exciting news (and lots more), we rounded it all up for you. So put those Saturday morning cartoons on mute and get to reading...
FIREWORKS: Lady Gaga misguidedly dressed like a guy, swore like a sailor and won multiple moon men; Katy Perry won Video of the Year; the fashion was wild; fans got a taste of The Hunger Games; Demi Lovato strutted her silver stuff; and Adele stole the musical portion of the show (Beyoncé's tummy stole the rest) at the record-big, jaw-drop-worthy, 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
SHOOTING STARS: The oddest-to-date Dancing With the Stars lineup came in—partners, too—and the controversy was hot on its tail, mainly surrounding the addition of Chaz Bono to the cast. Everyone worth listening to—like Lacey Schwimmer and Cher!—defended his inclusion, but there are still plenty of haters out there. Also, DWTS thought about rocking the boat even further and having Carson Kressley be partnered by a guy...The pressure's off of Elisabetta "I'm George 'Funny Face' Clooney's Ex" Canalis in the meantime, however, and we'll judge for ourselves when DWTS premieres Sept. 19 whether she and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's brother Val are really hot for each other.
NEWLYWEDS: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, married for nearly two weeks now (here's the proposal that started it all!), returned from their Italian honeymoon and...went straight back to party work! Kim hit the VMAs, while Kris went to his native Minnesota to pack up for a return to New York. Since the NBA lockout persists, he's got time to join his missus at a bash in their honor and on the red carpet—though he's nowhere near as chatty as Kim and her possible partner in pregnancy Kourtney Kardashian.
SMALL ARMS FIRE: LeAnn Rimes took major offense at a comment made about her weight by Giuliana Rancic on Fashion Police and proceeded to fire back (a lot) at Giuliana's skinny stature. The E! News anchor explained that she certainly didn't mean to start a war and continued to make a case for curves.
VILE FOR THE CAMERA: Heather Morris is the latest Glee star at the center of a photo-shoot controversy, this time an accusation of glamorizing domestic violence.
WTF? Marilyn Manson found the impossible: a date who makes him fade into the background.
REALITY BITES: In the wake of the release of Russell Armstrong's death certificate and the 911 call made when his body was discovered, Bravo decided to proceed as scheduled with the Sept. 5 season premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Which, understandably, has some people concerned.
MAN ON FIRE: First American Idol, now MTV. Adam Levine continued to give his unsolicitied opinion about things he doesn't think are as great as Maroon 5 or The Voice.
HOAXED: Tony Danza is fine, but what is wrong with people?
