After a week like the last one, you just gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself off.
Luckily, there was plenty of all new news to relish this week in addition to the floury fallout from a certain reality star's misadventure on the red carpet.
Feel free to dig in and enjoy!
BAD BLOOD: Amandla Stenberg, Lenny Kravitz and Dayo Okeniyi were the targets of some racially charged tweets directed at their roles in The Hunger Games. Being the class act that she is, onscreen and off, 13-year-old Amandla said simply that she remained honored and thrilled to be a part of the blockbuster film. And we were thrilled to watch her, Lenny and Dayo play their roles perfectly.
FUR REAL: Khloé Kardashian Odom stands up for sister Kim by quitting a defiant PETA after it turned out that she knew the sister of the woman who flour-bombed Kim (there's video footage to prove it) and strikes down divorce rumors. All in a week's work for Khloé!
OVERTIME: While it was always ironic that it was going to take Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries longer to get divorced than it took to plan a wedding and be married, it appears that Kris' side is holding up the proceedings with an eye on getting more money out of the deal. Now he wants a full accounting of any assets she acquired or let go of—donated wedding gifts included—during their 72-day union...In the meantime, Kim assured her fans that she didn't go rebounding with Eva Longoria's ex, Eduardo Cruz...And, happily, she made it through her first post-flouring red carpet, the launch party for Valentino's new Beverly Hills flagship store, without incident.
VAN DER BABY: James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly welcomed a son they've so normally named Joshua.
RING AROUND THE RUMOR: Miley Cyrus was rockin' a huge rock, leading the question of whether she and longtime beau Liam Hemsworth were engaged. Negatory, but that doesn't mean Liam's off kissing other girls like Teresa Palmer or anything. Well, he is, but the hottie doesn't only work for The Hunger Games.
OCTONOT: Nadya "Octomom" Suleman posed topless and all-around nearly nude for...well, we're not quite sure yet—besides for money, that is.
POOR FORM: Kate Gosselin got dissed by her old Dancing With the Stars partner, Tony Dovolani. That's no way to treat a lady on her 37th birthday!...Hey, Tony lasted longer with Kate than he did with Martina Navratilova!
BIRD BRAIN: Alicia Silverstone shocked and awed with a video that showed her feeding 10-month-old son Bear straight out of her own mouth.
