Forgotten, unappreciated weekend left-overs
OFF THE RACK
Cover: Dear tabloids: Really? Is Jennifer's uterus the only one available? Could you not, for the love of Thor and the Blykian Fire God, find someone else's womb to fetusize? You can return to poor, sad Jen in a couple of months. But just give us a break during which we don't have to think about her imaginary nurseries, her imaginary twins and her imaginary wedding place settings. Sincerely, Everybody in the entire world.
This week in new guy: Scarlett Johansson has a new man in her life. He's a tattoo aficionado and advertising executive, and she's "going public" with him. This piece of news is all the reason needed for Star to feature a photo of the happy couple. Not an actual picture of the two of them together, but one that looks like it was Photoshopped by a blind ferret on meth. Still. Very romantic.
Cover: Sandra Bullock doesn't do anything unless it's specifically designed to make Ryan Reynolds jealous. And now that she's (perhaps) dating one of Ryan's friends, it's clear that she's stepped up her jealousy strategy. Recently she took Ryan's friend-person to a party and, according to an "event onlooker" (which is totally what I want to be in my next life), they were glued to each other.

And what would be better than one involving Tim Tebow? Nothing, is what. Kim's recent interest in church and piety is a cleverly planned strategy to lure Tim into her web of profitable seduction, but the whole sex-tape thing may prove a bit of a hindrance.
Cover: Dear diary: It's the 23rd day of my stay in this place. I miss being able to tweet half-naked pictures of myself and to have the occasional drink but, other than that, it's not too bad. They really love meaningless inspirational quotes here - an interest I share. I really wish, though, that people would stop coming forward claiming to have found pages from my very old diary in a public trash can. And, furthermore, I wish that those pages wouldn't be used to mislead prospective magazine buyers into thinking that the "explosive" rehab diary is from my current rehab. I have trouble enough remembering one from the other without this added confusion. PS: Ashton Kutcher smells like rotting meat and his mother is so fat she'll never ...
