10 clicks: Kirk Cameron, Jessica Simpson, 'Teen Mom' and more
The rule of thumb this week appears to be that if you don't have anything nice to say, say it a lot on the radio, TV or Twitter.
The fallout from Rush Limbaugh's contraception controversy continued and former "Growing Pains" star Kirk Cameron felt the heat for what he had to say about homosexuality and gay marriage.
Before someone else opens his or her mouth, you better get caught up on the week that was in entertainment. Here are your 10 clicks:
1. Oh, Mike Seaver. The backlash was swift against Kirk Cameron this week following his interview with Piers Morgan in which the former kid actor called homosexuality "unnatural" and gay marriage "detrimental" to society. Hollywood's groaning pains were felt by, among others, Cameron's former co-stars Tracey Gold and Alan Thicke.
2. "Everybody Loves Raymond But When it Comes to Patricia Heaton ... Not so Much" was the show to watch on Twitter after the actress got Rush Limbaugh's back and went after Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. The heat on Heaton was severe enough to cause her to ditch her Twitter account, only to return and apologize for not treating Fluke "with respect."
3. Miley Cyrus has had her fair share of fun on the Internet, espcially around birthday cakes and parties in general. But her attempt to get all science-like with a series of tweets this week only angered a portion of her followers who put Jesus somewhere ahead of Hannah Montana. "How can people take the love out of science and bring hate into religion so easily?" Miley asked.
4. Trying to keep up with which "Teen Mom" star is in jail or doing something dumb at the moment isn't easy lately.
5. Speaking of (soon-to-be) moms, Jessica Simpson proved most provacatively that she is indeed pregnant and not just carrying a bag of footballs beneath her hoodie when she posed nude on the cover of Elle magazine. The singer/actress told the mag she's having a girl and she knows what the name will be. Daisy, anyone?
6. It's her prerogative: Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was revealed to be the sole heir to the late singer's possessions as details of her will became public. Bobbi Kristina will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for a televised interview on Sunday.
7. Fans of PBS' "Downton Abbey" learned this week that one of the best characters on the show may not be around after the third season. Dame Maggie Smith, who plays the Dowager Countess, has not yet signed on for seasons four and five. What would "Downton" be without classic lines such as: "What is a weeknd?"
8. If you're not headed out to see "John Carter" this weekend at the movies, you'll be saving a little less than the filmmakers who made that "$250 million bore." But the price you would have spent on popcorn and candy is still nothing to scoff at, and a man in Michigan has filed suit over the cost of theater snacks. Pass the Goobers!
9. Speaking of things that tick people off at the movies, "Stars Wars Episode I -- The Phantom Menace" is making news this week. Jake Lloyd, the kid actor who played little Anakin Skywalker, says his life was a "living hell" and starring in the film was enough to drive him away from acting. If only Jar Jar Binks had that experience before making the movie.
10. If you slept through Super Tuesday this week, maybe you're not alone. Fox D.C. correspondent Doug Luzader looks like he dozed off during a segment on KTBC TV out of Austin, Texas. We love it when reporters curse or fall down or generally get caught off guard on air. A nap works, too. Check it out:
