Wiig: 'SNL' crew like 'Melrose,' but without murder

Of all the things to compare "Saturday Night Live" to, we wouldn't have gone with "Melrose Place" - but we also don't work there. Kristen Wiig, however, does. At least for now.

Earlier this year, after she announced that she was retiring two of her "SNL" characters and hitting it big with "Bridesmaids" (which she co-wrote and starred in) a bit of gossip circulated that this was going to be her last season on the sketch comedy show.

But her rep tells Paper magazine, which interviewed Wiig, that the rumor isn't true. (There's also the fact that "SNL" casting won't be finalized until the end of the season.) And it's not like Wiig doesn't like her comedic co-workers.

50 Cent 'excited' about Pauly D's upcoming album

Pauly D isn't limiting his musical talents to the DJ booth - the "Jersey Shore" star is working on an upcoming album, with some help from 50 Cent.

The rapper has signed the reality star to his label G-Note Records, saying in a statement, "Pauly's a great addition to G-Note and G-Unit family. He's smart, creative, and will definitely bring something special to the label. We're really excited about his project."

50 Cent tells MTV that Pauly's offering will be "more like what you would get from a DJ Khaled or DJ Drama but also what you would get from David Guetta - so it's a cross between those two worlds...We're gonna make a hit record out of the actual material that we have around and some of the new stuff we've put together."

Pauly D dropped hints of the upcoming album earlier this year to Billboard. "I'm focusing on music. That's my passion," the "Shore" star said, adding that the album with 50 Cent is "going to be a little bit of everything."

'Thor 2' loses director Patty Jenkins

As "Thor 2" angles for a November, 2013 release, it looks like the film is on the hunt for a new director.

According to Deadline, Patty Jenkins has parted ways with the project over "creative differences." Jenkins, who directed Charlize Theron in her Oscar-winning "Monster" role, was said to have stepped into the position in late September.

Entertainment Weekly reports that this shift in direction shouldn't impact the "Thor" sequel's progress, which is expected to begin filming in the late spring.

Colin Firth 'looking forward' to third 'Bridget Jones'

It's been reported that a third "Bridget Jones" film called "Bridget Jones's Baby" is in the works, and Colin Firth tells CNN "there's every intention to get that done."

And a good thing, too, as it sounds like Firth and his "Jones" co-star Hugh Grant didn't get to spend nearly enough time together.

"It'll be nice [to be reunited]," Firth, 51, said of working with the cast again Tuesday. "It would be like one of those rather tempestuous '70s pop bands trying to get together in a way. We always had a good time."

Sarah Jessica Parker: Kids can distract from marriage

According to Sarah Jessica Parker, "kids can really distract you from your relationship," as the 46-year-old mom of three told U.K. paper the Telegraph.

The actress is raising son James Wilkie, 8, and twins Tabitha and Loretta, 2, with husband Matthew Broderick. She adds, "Maybe in good ways and bad ways. It's important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship."

She and Broderick, who've been together for 20 years, have had the same relationship bumps as everyone else: "You have good days, you have decent days, and you have bad days. That's a marriage. That's a relationship. That's a friendship, even - relationships outside the marriage run the same course."
