Janet Jackson opens up on family and her future

In an interview with HLN’s Richelle Carey, Janet Jackson gets personal, talking about her memories of her late brother Michael, her relationship with their father Joe, and if another marriage and kids are in her future.

On becoming a mom, Jackson told Carey that she's hoping it'll happen.

“But you know I really do leave it [to] God,” Jackson added, noting that filmmaker Tyler Perry has told her that statement is her way of saying she doesn’t really want kids. But, Jackson said, “That’s not the truth... if it's really meant to be it will happen. God will bless me with that.”

Weeklies cheat sheet: Fake weddings and a baby

The Kardashian clan reportedly pulled in $65 million in 2010, and is it hard to see why? Even their rumored nuptials are weekly magazine cover worthy.

So this week, we have double the dose of a supposed wedding between Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, although Kardashian has already tweeted what looks like a denial. (In a blog post that included two of this week's covers, she wrote, "thank you everyone for the excitement but you will have to tune in to the finale of the show for the real scoop." Well played.)

Besides your weekly Kardashian update, there's also a few random tidbits about why Sandra Bullock (supposedly) turned down John Mayer, what the deal is between Jake Gyllenhaal and Jennifer Aniston (likely nothing) and why Kendra's (supposedly) ready to move on from her own marriage.

Until next week...

'Threat Level Midnight' hits 'The Office'

At long last, the Michael Scott script was finally produced and revealed to the world on Thursday night's episode of "The Office."

To be precise, as Michael put it, it took "three years of writing, one year of shooting, four years of re-shooting and two years of editing" to bring "Threat Level Midnight" to the small, Dunder Mifflin/Sabre screen.

(Michael Scott's biggest directing influence, by the way? "I am a huge Woody Allen fan, although I've only seen 'Antz.'")
