Another whirlwind week is past. Get your bearings right here:
A JOBS WELL DONE: Steve Jobs, the game-changing cofounder of Apple Computers and all-around business whiz, died at only 56 after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer. We've reported on the passings of Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and many more, and never have we seen a more thankful, awestruck and unanimously positive outpouring of tributes for a public figure.
SPECIAL K: Kim Kardashian got married big-time and now we finally all get to see it! In preparation for the big day, meaning Sunday's premiere of Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, the family made the media rounds like it was going out of style: Kim and Kris reswapped vows on Ellen and had a few laughs on The Tonight Show; Kim dished to E! News about, among other things, family planning; and she and her sisters took turns cohosting Today.
JENNER GOLD: Kendall Jenner isn't sitting by the wayside while her big sisters steal the spotlight. Fresh off the Fashion Week runway, the almost-16-year-old modeled slinky swimsuits for White Sand.
LIE HARD: Did Ashton Kutcher cheat on Demi Moore? Are the people who said it wouldn't last totally right?! A number of tabloid covers would have you believe that Charlie Sheen's replacement as the highest-paid sitcom actor on TV stepped out on his wife while partying in San Diego and that their marriage is at the breaking point. Now there's all this who's-following-whom-on-Twitter drama, an epic case of they-said/no-comment, and a game of where's-the-ring.
BUSTED MOVE: Kristin Cavallari was kicked off of Dancing With the Stars already, leaving Len Goodman more befuddled than ever. "Doesn't this country like watching attractive, leggy blondes anymore?!" he's wondering to himself. Hmm, why do you think Kristin didn't have much of a fan following? She should've gotten naked, like Hope Solo.
WEDDING BELLS: Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed swapped vows, and son Nick insists it was real...Seth Rogen and longtime love Lauren Miller tied the knot...Elizabeth Hurley is engaged to Aussie cricket player Shane Warne
UNHITCHING POST: Olivia Wilde is officially single.
TRIAL PHASE: In case you hadn't noticed, Dr. Conrad Murray is on trial for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. If you haven't been paying as much attention to this historical event as you should be, here's your chance to catch up on all the details, including the gory ones. And Saturday's tribute concert in Wales is still on, or else his siblings are rehearsing for nothing.
20-0: ESPN dropped the Hank Williams Jr.-sung Monday Night Football opener for good after the right-wing country singer not just bashed President Obama on Fox News, but compared him to Hitler. He apologized, but...that's two decades of tradition down the pie hole.
AFTERMATH: Guess who wants to interview Amanda Knox? Everybody. Guess who Vivid Entertainment wants as the face of its porn house? Amanda Knox. In related news, Lifetime's Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy will have a happier ending now.
