Another madcap week has passed, much of it dominated by news of a certain couple that skeptics loved to roll their eyes at but true romantics loved to root for.

Brush up on all you need to know right here:

READ: Were Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore Destined for Trouble?

AT A CROSSROAD: Sara Leal says she totally did it with Ashton Kutcher last month, but it "wasn't weird" or anything. Well, not for her maybe! Now we're hearing that an "embarrassed" (yet still modelicious) Demi Moore is reluctant to divorce her hubby of six years and Ashton's tweeting and trotting around with his wedding ring on. But then a moving truck shows up. What do you think? Can this marriage be saved or are they just biding their time to file the paperwork?

PITFALLS OF FAME: Facebook apologized for mistakenly blocking teen bride Courtney Stodden from accessing her fan page, a snafu the 17-year-old's mom had attributed to jealous biznitches who reported her daughter's page for no reason other than mean-spiritedness.

THEY ALMOST DIDN'T: As the surprise-riddled Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event revealed, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries hit a few bumps on their way to the altar. Sure, things turned out beautiful and Kris even seemed to be enjoying himself by nuptials' end, but those two stopped getting along for awhile beforehand. Which makes them so...normal. Anyway, making them a little less normal (aside from the billion dollars) is that Kim is now off in Dubai wearing burqas, riding camels and expanding her brand. She'll be back in time to celebrate her 31st birthday in Vegas.

FAMILY TRAGEDY: Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth's brother, Jack Manigault, was shot and killed in Ohio. His girlfriend's ex-boyfriend has been arrested.

NOT JUST JELLY: Beyoncé pregnancy comes with a real bump, people. Even if it looks like it's deflating, it's just an illusion.

IN THE PINK: Richard Simmons' rep says the exercise guru has never been healthier, despite his gaunt appearance at a Dancing With the Stars taping.

STRONG OFFENSE: We had complete coverage of Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial all week—and will continue to have it in weeks to come. The prosecution is close to resting its case after getting the defense to abandon its suggestion that Michael Jackson could have swallowed propofol while Murray wasn't looking. Medical experts castigated the cardiologist for what amounted, in their opinion, to unethical, unconscionable treatment of the King of Pop. But Murray's lawyers will have their turn to present their case soon. Stay tuned. 

CAUGHT RED-HANDED: Apologetic Christopher Chaney, the hacker who got a hold of racy pics of Scarlett Johansson and other celebs, is out on bail after being arrested and charged with 26 felony counts of identity theft and other offenses. He says he plans to plead guilty—presumably in hopes of avoiding the maximum 121 years in prison he's facing.

FAREWELL: Former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh was found dead in a Chicago hotel room. No immediate cause was given but cops didn't suspect foul play. He was 40, and had recently tweeted about seeing his own death in a dream.

UNREAL HOUSEWIFE?: Is rich and forthcoming Bethenny Frankel actually not so rich and a liar to boot? Oh, she's still plenty rich (so long as you think $8 million isn't anything to sniff at) and Bravo says she was telling the truth about being lost at sea.

BONES-HEAD: We're pleased to report that David Boreanaz is nowhere near as dumb as he seemed there for a second.

FIRED: Donald Trump denies cheating on Melania with a porn star.
