Week In Review


Oh, excuse us. Lots of dust in the air. Which brings us to the oddest week-capper we've had the privilege to report in a while, followed by a rundown of everything there is to know right now in the world of Panem celebutainment news:

FLOUR POWER: Wow, Kim Kardashian got flour-bombed on the red carpet at a benefit appearance. Way to mix your message, mysterious flour-tosser.

BYE, BABE: Longtime E! denizen Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is taking her reality-TV world to WE tv. Best of luck, girl!
