The Week in Pop Culture

Alec Baldwin thinks mail order Filipino brides are hilarious. However, one lawmaker over there says not so much. And Baldwin apologized.

Cynthia Nixon is engaged
to what they say is a lady - though she seems a little dude-ish. Oh, well. Congratulations!

Because we haven't been tortured enough with the likes of Jessica Simpson "singing" country music, Jennifer Love Hewitt is going to give it a go.

Pretty people partied it up in Cannes.

Reality TV Notes:
  • A rancher was the big Survivor.
  • Not quite a star, but perhaps that big disco ball trophy will help Shawn Johnson get some press after this week.
  • And if you didn't know Kris Allen is your American Idol, then he probably isn't.
Hope you weren't a Darrell Hammond fan. Last Saturday was his final appearance on SNL. In case you missed it, watch one last Jeopardy.

Everything old is, well, old again. Proof: Sherlock Holmes.Footloose.

Something strange in your neighborhood? Don't worry - you can call on those ol' reliable Ghostbusters - because they're coming back for a third movie.

A new odd couple: Cher & Christina Aguilera.

Jimmy Kimmel has bitten the hand that feeds him. To be fair, I'd say the same thing about the network's programming. Wait. I HAVE.

Not that I know anyone who was headed to London to see Michael Jackson try to sing and dance to tunes he made popular more than 20 years ago, but many of his summer concert dates have been bumped into next year.
