Barbie turns Faith Hill and Tim McGraw into dolls: See them here! -- FIRST LOOK

This October, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. What’s one way to celebrate that milestone? By releasing the powerhouse country duo as dolls, of course — which is what Mattel is doing. EW has the exclusive first look at the pair of new Barbies — known as the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Doll Gift Set — which officially become available in September for $69.99 at BarbieCollector.com.

To get the full scoop on the creation of the dolls, EW talked to Linda Kyaw, designer for Barbie Collector. Turns out that Tim and Faith themselves were rather involved in the design process, especially from the outset. “Tim and Faith sent us photos of every detail” of their outfits for the dolls, Kyaw says, “including Tim’s complete suit, piece-by-piece; and Faith’s dress, make-up, and clear shots of her hair preference. The couple knew exactly what they wanted to see in doll form, and they helped us achieve the best possible results.”

As you can probably imagine, the design process takes time — creating the prototype alone took about two months. “It really takes an army and the process can take anywhere from a weeks to a few months,” Kyaw adds. “With real celebrity likenesses, it is definitely more challenging because there are a lot of factors to consider. Our vision is to capture the true essence of the celebrity — and I think we did just that with Tim and Faith!”

One day before Kim Kardashian's wedding: How to kill time until the blessed event

The invitations are sent (don’t be sad, Ellen, we didn’t get one either), the gifts purchased (every newlywed needs a $375 candy jar), and an epic love story that was eight whole months months in the making will finally come to fruition when Kim Kardashian weds Kris Humphries tomorrow in Montecito, Calif. Kardashian, who wore a white pre-wedding dress to her rehearsal dinner Thursday night, tweeted, “What a fun night w family & friends! Now I’m sleeping in late tomorrow!” only to tell us a few hours later, “Even when I could sleep in I woke up early!” What suspense!

Since the excitement leading up to the four-hour E! wedding special in October is just killing us — killing us, I tells ya! — here are some ways to kill the time before Kardashian’s big day: READ FULL STORY

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt chugging toward the final stop on the celebreality train

My how the Heidi have fallen. Former Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt came out today to bemoan their downtrodden situation, claiming they’re broke and fundamentally unemployable after their stint as villains on the hit MTV show. The couple gave The Daily Beast an interview during which they spilled behind-the-scenes secrets, put to bed the were-they-or-weren’t-they questions about their 2010 divorce drama, and generally demonstrated how sad the life of a washed-up reality star can be.  READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lopez loved herself enough to walk away from Marc Anthony

Jennifer Lopez has given her first post-divorce announcement interview to Vanity Fair, and in it, she made three things clear: She and Marc Anthony both wanted their marriage to work, it’s sad that it didn’t, and she hopes to find love again. “It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive — determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

Explaining her decision to separate from Anthony, she says, “It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself — if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.” READ FULL STORY

Arnold, Tiger, and other celebrity cheating scandals: Which one shocked you the most?

Last week, the geniuses at Taiwan’s Next Media Animation speculated that the Governator’s fondness for “groping” may have been behind Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s split. As it turns out, they weren’t too far off base — Schwarzenegger revealed today that he fathered a child with a member of his household’s staff 10 years ago. LIFE.com is taking his confession as an opportunity to revisit previous incidents of celebrity infidelity in a 29-slide gallery called “Cheating Scandals of the Stars.” We begin with Arnold before moving on to the likes of Jesse James, Tiger Woods, Jude Law, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian — both of whom were married when they began seeing each other — and Elizabeth Taylor, whose escapades were too numerous to be confined to just one slide.

Which of these scandals shocked you the most when you first learned about it? READ FULL STORY

Country Music's Best Couples: Who's your favorite?

With Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s weekend wedding now in the books — Shelton returned to Twitter Monday afternoon with the message, “Hey y’all I’m back!!!!! Without my sack!!!!,” and “Mrs Shelton” became a trending topic after Lambert tweeted, “Mrs Shelton here! Winning!!!!!” – LIFE.com is celebrating country music’s best couples with a 50-slide photo album. It starts with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans (pause to appreciate their color coordination on their wedding day), naturally includes the eternal Johnny Cash and June Carter and the tumultuous George Jones and Tammy Wynette, and in addition to Blake and Miranda, involves the likes of Tim and Faith and Garth and Trisha (along with Keith and Nicole and Brad and Kimberly, which could be reaching, but both actresses serve as muses, so we’ll let it slide).  READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Love is a battlefield

In last night’s episode of “We Pretend… Cougar Town…Is Called Wine Time,” I was surprised by the lack of grape being pounded by our favorite cul-de-sac crew. I think a little time with Big Carl (RIP Joe) and even Little Richard would have done the group some good and maybe even helped with their familial problems.  READ FULL STORY

Taiwanese animators posit why Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver really split: 'Was it groping?'

Though it’s been a few days since Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced that they’re separating, the world still doesn’t really know why the two have split. Thankfully, Taiwan’s most intrepid animated news service is on the case. NMA’s latest minute-long absurdist masterpiece shows the Governator chucking a cat at his estranged wife’s head, then smoking a joint before being joined by two nubile, naked young Sim ladies. Also, according to the video, the glowing green ghosts of JFK and Bobby Kennedy attended the couple’s wedding in 1986. Oh, and Sim Ahhnold has a porn ‘stache for some reason. And the narrator keeps calling him “Arnie!” And… well, nothing I write can truly do this incredible clip justice, so do yourself a favor and check it out below.

How do you think this ranks against NMA’s greatest hits, like Charlie Sheen’s Winningest Moments and the Tiger Woods clip that started it all? READ FULL STORY

Jesse James on 'Good Morning America': 'I can't worry about Sandra Bullock anymore.'

Promoting his new book, American Outlaw, Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James was on Good Morning America this morning, in clips from a taped interview with Vicki Mabrey that will air tonight on Nightline. Though he’s hard on himself, he also admits that “I can’t worry about [Bullock] anymore. I think I’ve spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her and what she thinks and what I should do and, like, you know, controlling all my movements and everything else. I think it’s time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse’s happy.”

James was crucified publicly for cheating on his famous wife, right after she’d won the Oscar for The Blind Side, so it will be interesting to see how people will react to his now saying that his devotion to his ex “controlled [his] movements and everything else” while he was simultaneously undermining their marriage.

Royal Wedding poll: Prince Harry is the U.K.'s most eligible bachelor. So would you watch him on 'The Bachelor'?

You know what? Enough about William. Sure, he’s the Windsor who will be taken off the market this Friday — but that’s precisely why we should all start shifting our focus to his brother, ginger-haired, ruddy-cheeked Prince Harry. Though rumors have been circulating that Diana and Charles’s younger son is planning to bring his on-again, off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy to William and Kate’s wedding, Prince Harry hasn’t been seriously linked to a permanent ladyfriend in quite some time; he and Davy officially split in 2009. That makes “the spare” the U.K.’s most eligible bachelor. And we all know the best way for an eligible bachelor to ideally find his soulmate: The Bachelor!

So let’s engage in a silly thought experiment, PopWatchers. If Chris Harrison could somehow convince Harry to step into Brad Womack’s carefully polished shoes, would you be there to watch what happened? Or does the idea of a royal appearing regularly on a reality show somehow not sit well with you? Vote in our poll and let us know. READ FULL STORY
