Blame it on the economy, the contrived storylines, the self-centered characters or a lovable green ogre.

But Sex and the City 2 tanked at the box office this weekend, failing to even bump Shrek Forever After from the top spot.

The much-hyped sequal pulled in $32.1 in three days, far below the $56.8 million the original opened with in 2008.

The film, which takes the core four to the Middle East, has received few positive reviews; The New York Times said it "isn't much fun at all," while USA Today slammed it as "tasteless." On Rotten Tomatoes, only 15% of critics polled said they liked the flick.

Tokyo Premiere

THG's take? There are only so many times you can find Samantha's sexual puns witty; while focusing on a quartet of rich, successful, whining women tends to get old.

At this point, the franchise is more about fashion (a lot of which you can find in our Style Store!) than anything else. But is that enough to garner a third film? And would you even wanna see one?

Sound off now, as you check out scenes from Sex and the City 2 below...

Ali Fedotowsky wants a man with the whole package.

It looks like our girl will be treated to an up close, personal look at her selection on tonight's all-new (nice) two-hour (ugh) episode of ABC's The Bachelorette.

Speedo style.

Gimmicks aside, there's drama headed Ali's way tonight, too. Just as The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, one of her suitors is considered "dangerous."

Who is it, and will Ali Fedotowsky fall victim to his ulterior motives? How does he react when pressed on the subject? Do you like Ali as the show's star?

Your comments are always welcome. Here's a preview for this evening's episode. Check it out, then follow the jump for two additional, longer clips ...

In celebrity breakup news we didn't see coming whatsoever, Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson are splitting up after five years together, UK sources say.

The sensational break-up comes just six weeks after they announced their engagement. But it's legit. They've worked out the details of their separation.

Gavin has told friends it is over and is expected to move out of their £1.2 million home in Wales while singer Charlotte stays there with their children.

A source revealed that Gavin is expected to find a new place nearby so he can visit regularly. No third party is believed to be involved in the breakup.

Last night an insider said: "It is an incredibly sad state of affairs."

"Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realized this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision, even if to the outside world they were a golden couple."

"Truth is, they had the same insecurities as anyone else. Charlotte is very headstrong. In the end, Gav found it all to be too much. He was blaming her for his rugby career stalling. She hated him going out drinking with mates."

That'll do it every time.

The relationship reached the breaking point when Gavin flew to Norway in March to film celebrity reality show 71 Degrees North. Charlotte was preparing her comeback as a judge on BBC1's Over the Rainbow, and "really needed him at home."

Men. Can't live with 'em ... pass the cosmos. In other UK news, Cheryl Cole was just named the World's Sexiest Woman. Don't get any ideas, Gavin.

She may hate fame so much that she compares it to rape, but Kristen Stewart has achieved a new level of notoriety, due to her on-screen success and popularity.

The Twilight Saga actress has debuted on FHM's annual Sexiest Woman in the World list... all the way at number-six!

In its summation of the star, the magazine pokes fun at Twihards everywhere, a dangerous game to play in our experience. It writes:

With one film left in the trilogy (Eclipse), and a BAFTA Rising Star award on her sideboard, the LA-born actress is taking on more challenging roles. First she stars as jailbait rocker Joan Jett in The Runaways, then a Tony Soprano-baiting prostitute in Welcome To The Rileys and finally in K-11 she'll play Butterfly, a male-to-female transsexual with autism, which ironically is also Twilight's target demographic.

British singer/model/TV personality Cheryl Cole topped the list. Think she deserves the number-one spot?

The rest of the top 10 was filled with the usual, gorgeous suspects: Jessica Alba, Marisa Miller, Megan Fox.

Ogle them below and then vote on the Sexiest Woman in the World...

  • The Sexiest Female
  • Only Second Sexiest
  • Utter Sexiness

WHO IS THE SEXIEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD?

Let's hope Liam Hemsworth did not attend his girlfriend's concert in Portugal on Saturday night. He would not have been pleased to hear the song "Full Circle."

Prior to performing this single for fans in Lisbon, Miley told the crowd:

“It’s about two people. They’re always gonna come back together no matter what anyone says or the bad people that try to keep you apart. Surprise surprise, it’s about a Jonas brother."

Ouch. Sorry, Liam. Nick and Miley have a romantic history together, one whose future got a bit brighter after the former broke up with Selena Gomez in April.

The chorus of "Full Circle" reads: "I try to run, but I keep on coming back full circle and I can’t jump the track, can’t let you go.”

That's a pretty clear message to Nick, isn't it? It's also incredibly profound, as Miley likes to tell everyone her music is, more than any other pop star in the business.

WATCH THE PERFORMANCE BELOW AND LISTEN TO MILEY TALK ABOUT HER EX.

For all that's been written of Michael Jackson's questionable financial decisions, it looks like he learned his lesson - and didn't want his kids to repeat his mistakes.

He left a fortune to Prince, Paris and Blanket, but with long, long list of strings attached. Under the trust he left for them, the kids get 40 percent of MJ's estate.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

His mother, Katherine Jackson, gets the use of 40 percent during her lifetime (when she dies, the remainder goes to the kids), and 20 percent goes to charity.

The kids' 40-plus percent isn't going to be seen for decades, though.

Prince, Paris and Blanket have no control of the money until they are 30. Until then, they only receive an allowance, determined solely by the estate's trustee.

Paris, Blanket and Prince will learn fiscal responsibility - something that their father showed limited ability to handle despite accumulating such a vast fortune.

When each of the kids turns 30, the trustees must then give them a third of their share outright. When the kids reach 35, they get half of their share outright.

If they screw up, Omer Bhatti gets it all. Just kidding.

At age 40, they get whatever's left. The late icon's will refers to the trust he set up but the trust document itself is separate, and has just now been released.

As for how much the kids will get? That amount, along with the value of the estate, grows every month, thanks to executors John Branca and John McClain.

Jackson's June 2009 death sparked a new generation of interest in his music, and various tributes, movies and song releases continue to rake in the dough.

You knew it was coming. Pauly D has just completed a whirlwind tour of Paris. Well, maybe you didn't know it was coming, but still, it totally happened.

It says a lot about both Jersey Shore and Paris Hilton that the latter was gushing about the run-in, too. That's when you know you've hit the big time.

Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

When the tattooed, gelled-up DJ met the HO-tel heiress in Las Vegas Friday, the two hit it off ... but did Rhode Island's most famous DJ hit that later?

Who knows, but Paris Hilton is newly single after her breakup with Doug Reinhardt, and Tweeted about jetting off for a girls' weekend in Las Vegas.

When reality stars and loose morals collide in Sin City.

But it was Pauly D who caught her attention! Paris Tweeted:

"Had the best time last night! We went to an incredible dinner at Botero and then raged @XSLasVegas. Ran into my boy Too Short and met Pauly D."

Pauly D seemed to be pretty excited about the encounter, as well, as he Tweeted (at 3:19 am) - "Me and Paris ..." - and linked to the above photo.

Soon after, he Tweeted again, this time sending the same picture to Paris, perhaps as a reminder. He said: "@Parishilton Now " Thats Hott " (sic).

So true. P.S. Be a fan of THG on Facebook and Twitter!

In 2008, Tom Cruise tried to become a box office star again by starring in a drama (Valkyrie) based around Hitler and the Nazis. Bad idea.

A couple years later, the slightly insane movie star has come up with a far more effective plan: appear in a MTV Movie Awards promo with Robert Pattinson.

In the hilarious video below, Cruise takes on the persona of Len Grossman, the foul-mouthed Hollywood producer he portrayed in Tropic Thunder.

When the Twilight Saga stud informs Grossman that he might actually wash hair for the MTV event, Grossman goes off on him, screaming:

"Your filthy hair made you a star! Your filthy hair sent my fat-*ss kid to Space Camp four times!"

It's great stuff. Watch now:

The not entirely shocking break-up of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt has yet to generate a formal response - or even a trademark Tweet - from the latter.

Some decry the news as another PR stunt, but TMZ broke the story citing close sources, including Heidi's own rep, saying things had been crumbling of late.

Stunt or not, it looks like she's moving on.

"This is going to be the best summer of my life!!!!" Heidi Tweeted, and an old pal / The Hills co-star claims the 'Tag's summer plans are already in place.

"Heidi and I are moving into a Malibu beach house this summer," said Jen Bunney, who adds that she and Heidi Montag will be filming a new reality show.

“We're really excited to do girly things and show people who we really are, that we're really fun, sweet and loyal girls." So loyal you ditch your husband?

Not Heidi Pratt

BRING BACK THE BUNNEY: Heidi Montag reportedly will - to life and TV.

Jen Bunney added that Speidi are not "legally" separated, but "she is moving in with me. It's just her being able to have some freedom from marriage."

Sounds like a separation to us ... we think. Even though Heidi recently proclaimed she has no friends, it looks like she has at least one. A good one, too.

“Our show is going to focus on our friendship, getting through things with each other like marriage stuff and boyfriend stuff," adds the Bunney, rivetingly.

Friday, Heidi's rep said she was moving out "due to all the fake bad press that Spencer Pratt controls" and "wants to focus on her acting career" alone.

Probably for the best. Things were getting bad.

The couple hired ex-Marines to guard their L.A. home, spent $400,000 on healing crystals and even called the cops on Heidi's mom, Darlene Egelhoff.

Whose side are you on?

Did Lindsay Lohan actually take a hint and realize she needs to avoid the menagerie of enablers, leeches, hangers-on and overall low lives that surround her?

If so, she owes her ankle bracelet a big thank you.

The troubled star finally realized she needs to avoid "those people," i.e. the ones creating huge temptation, according to confidants. Not a moment too soon.

Lindsay is spending the long weekend with a close friend by the beach in Venice, Calif. Why? "She needs to get away from that scene ... and she knows it."

Yeah, we've heard that before - but here's hoping.

Lindsay on the Mend?

For Lohan, it's her own friends as much as the clubs that create the danger of relapse - and thanks to a hard-ass judge, that relapse would mean jail now.

"The people who hang around her are such moochers, and bad energy," says one friend. "She needs to cut them out and I think she's starting to realize."

As for what Lindsay Lohan is doing? Sleeping, shopping, watching TV and movies. Interestingly, more than one person says she desperately needs sleep.

Riding the rails for months at a time will do that.

People close to her say it's definitely too early to tell, but Lindsay has at least temporarily turned a corner and is healthier than she's been "in a long time."

We're pulling for her! Lindsay Lohan belongs in ...
