With news about congressional dick pics, Jennifer Aniston’s latest tabloid-ready relationship, and The Book of Mormon dominating at the Tony Awards, you might have missed out on some of the best celebrity and entertainment stories this week. And then Natalie Portman had to go and give birth, ensuring that every other story gets banished to page ten. Never fear! Stay up to the minute with this rundown of Hollywood goings-on. But do it quick, before Lindsay Lohan gets arrested again.
1. Kim Kardashian Wants Expensive Crap
In case you hadn’t heard (or seen the engagement ring from space), elusive and private television personality Kim Kardashian is getting married, and her nuptials are shaping up to be exactly the kind of understated and dignified affair you’d expect them to be. This week, she and her dude went to a department store in Beverly Hills to set up their wedding registry . If you were thinking about a gift to give the happy couple, try the $375 candy bowl or the $260 ice tongs. (Via Hollywood Life )
2. Sean Bean is Amazing
Last Sunday, English actor Sean Bean (aka Boromir from Lord of the Rings and Ned Stark from Game of Thrones) set the world record for giant-balls-having. While he was drinking at a London pub, a hooligan insulted his companion, a twenty-two-year-old topless model. After being punched in the face and stabbed in the arm, Bean did the only sensible thing … he went back inside and ordered another drink. Bravo, sir. (Via Warming Glow )
3. Your Soon-to-Be-Favorite Actor: Chris Evans
Things learned about Chris Evans in his new profile in GQ:
1) He still knows the words to songs from The Little Mermaid.
2) He’s happiest when gazing at a sunset or rainbow.
3) He plays “jump over the pool table” contests.
4) He sounds sort of legitimately awesome.

4. Watch Antoine Dodson Perform Live at the Webby Awards
Beside amazing five-second speeches and a special award honoring the inventor of the cell phone, the 15th Annual Webby Awards included a very special live performance by Antoine Dodson, who sang an extended version of his “Bed Intruder” song. If this video somehow included a cat, it would be the apogee of all Internet achievements. (Via Pop Dust )
5. The Greatest Love Story of Our Time Is Over
Frankly, I don’t want to live in a world where an eighty-five-year-old man and a twenty-two-year-old Playboy model can’t make it work. But apparently we do, because octogenarian lothario Hugh Hefner and his one-time fiancée Crystal Harris have called off their wedding. Amid rumors that she was a wannabe fameball looking for publicity, Harris did not help matters by trying to launch her “singing career” on the same day that she announced the breakup. Kids these days. (Via PopEater )
