Here's everything you need to know about the week just past in entertainment (and simply entertaining) news:
IN THE PINK: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot last week, but it was only in the days following that we got the pics and all the details about the dress (pink!), the tux, the vows, the guests, the party, the jewelry, the bride's upcoming name change, the Britney photobomb, the really embarrassing well-wishes from some unwitting homeless people and everything else you need to know about the couple's big day.
BEDAZZLED: Since when does a very much in love Kim Kardashian wear a massive diamond ring on her pinky finger? Well...since now, because those in the know—like her mom—are insisting that she and Kanye West are not engaged.
BREAKING GOOD: The equally introspective Robert Pattinsonand Kristen Stewartembarked on separate legs of the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (check out a new clip!) promo blitz, but they ended the week back in L.A. together, doing things that normal couples do—like watch VIP-only Prince concerts at intimate clubs.
