Citizens of our lovely pre-apocalyptic world where children do not have to battle to the death, rejoice!
It's St. Patrick's Day, so that means shenanigans are probably in order for many of you later on today. But this morning, just sip your nonalcoholic beverage (or make your coffee Irish, by all means) and enjoy catching up on all the pressing celebtertainment news of the week.
GAME TIME: The Hunger Games storms theaters next week, meaning this week Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and the other, not-part-of-the-love-triangle actors in the already well-reviewed (yay!) movie were crisscrossing the globe for premieres in L.A., London and Paris.
MADE FOR EACH OTHER: Ben Flajnik proposed to Courtney Robertson on the season finale of The Bachelor, but in a shocking turn of events, he cut and run once he was privy to what she was actually like on the show. But he slipped her ring back on during the After the Final Rose special, and she's wearing it!
MAD CHATTER: Jon Hamm called out Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton for winning fame and fortune by acting like "f--king idiots" on TV—but he didn't mean anything by it! And why would Kim get all mad? She's rich and famous! (We don't know how Paris reacted, because we don't care.)
MORE OF MORRIS: Provocative photos of Heather Morris were leaked, an apparent result of the latest celebrity-phone hack job. But the Glee star isn't ashamed, heck no! In fact, she wonders why more stars don't capture themselves in the buff while they're at their best. (Ironically, Heather, judging by all the hacking, more hotties than we ever expected appear to have done just that...)
SWAN SONG: Jermaine Jones, already a last-minute addition to American Idol's live rounds, was disqualified after producers found out about his rap sheet—which they say wouldn't have hurt him if he had just come clean in the first place. The top 11 sang along without him, and then 10 hopefuls were picked for the American Idols Live Tour this summer.
