I find the Important Stuff so you don’t have to.
5. 76 Year Old Rocker (Great Balls of Fire, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On) Jerry Lee Lewis Married for the Seventh Time.
Lewis’ new wife, 61 year old Judith Brown—who is also his caretaker—explained: “Once we sat down in front of the preacher, everything just felt right…neither of us feels like we’ve been married before, so this was like the first time for both of us.” Lewis is no stranger to marriage or scandal, having previously been married to a minor (13 year old Myra Gale Brown; new wife Judith was previously married to Myra Gale’s brother, Rusty, who is Jerry Lee’s cousin) and lost one wife and a three year old son by drowning, another wife to drug overdose and his son, Jerry Lee Lewis Jr. to a car accident at age 19. If all that makes your head hurt, welcome to the club and let’s just try to forget the whole mess.
4. Michelle Williams Has Been Secretly Dating Jason Segel.
After being introduced by Williams’ pal Busy Philipps, Michelle Williams may finally be moving on from Heath Ledger with Muppet man, Jason Segel (“How I Met Your Mother,” Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Despicable Me). The pair is reportedly serious; Segel recently tweeted, “If I fell in love would you guys be happy?” but then removed the post.
3. Newly Single Jennie Garth Is Doing a Reality Show on CMT.
“Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country” will focus on the next chapter of her life as a single mother. Hoping for a “simpler life,” the actress has decided to transplant (with her children) from Hollywood to a Los Olivos, California farm. “A Little Bit Country” premieres on CMT April 20th at 9 pm EST.
2. Nicolas Winding Refn’s Next Two Films Feature His Drive Stars, Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan.
Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling have been in Bankok filming Only God Forgives, a “thriller produced as a western, all in the Far East, and with a modern cowboy hero.” Gosling stars as a man who killed a cop and fled the country, ending up in Thailand where he manages a boxing club that serves as a drug operation front. After Gosling’s brother is murdered, his mother orders her son to take revenge—which promises to involve swordplay and mixed martial arts. I’m not sure how well things work out.
Following Only God Forgives, the director and Carey Mulligan begin filming his horror-sex thriller I Walk with the Dead. Winding Refn says shooting will take place in Los Angeles or Tokyo and that he wanted to “make a movie with lots of sex.” (Couldn’t he have gotten Gosling for this one?)
1. The BBC Released New “Doctor Who” Set Photos and Confirmed the Daleks Are Coming to Series Seven.
The photos were released with a message: “Not much has been confirmed about the Doctor’s forthcoming adventures but we think it’s safe to say we can expect the return of perhaps the Doctor’s most legendary foe. Here are some sneaky pictures fresh from the set of Doctor Who where the Daleks are being wheeled before the cameras once again. But which design? The answer is ALL OF THEM!”

Cindy Davis can confirm she has never married a relative or a minor.
