Eddie Cibrian, star of NBC’s new fall drama The Playboy Club, is, one must admit, an excellent model for Charisma, a luxury home brand that includes bedding, robes, bath rugs, and towels. For the fall 2011 campaign, he was photographed in bed, of course, and while those shots are worth looking at (check them out here, along with a behind-the-scenes video in which Cibrian is half-naked but hearing compliments like, “Look at those sheets! Ohmygod!”), it’s the bathtub shots that make me happy. I love when male celebrities agree to be photographed in a bathtub because it always feels so random even if it isn’t. See: Colin Firth and David Boreanaz. Therefore, I’m adding Cibrian’s shoot to my list of Great Pop Culture Moments in Bathtubs, which, my editor Mike Bruno said I could blog “only if you include the ‘When Doves Cry’ video, which starts with doves opening double doors to a purple misty room containing Prince in a tub. As Morris Day would say, ‘So sexy!'” So, we have that. What else should be on this list? Other colleagues have nominated Fatal Attraction, Scarface, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Pretty Woman. Off the top of my head, my submissions would include:

Last night, gay marriage became legal in New York state and there was a joyous celebration, especially in New York’s West Village. Celebrities have also been joining in the enthusiasm via Twitter. Here’s a sampling of the reaction:

Have your children bugged you about the latest Cars 2-branded toy release? If they haven’t, they soon will — after all, the Pixar film is headed to theaters this weekend. Add to that the fact that the brand has built quite a reputation when it comes to film licensing — Cars has raked in $8 billion in toys and other merchandise since the first film’s release in 2006 — and it’s easy to bet that every little tyke’s bedroom will soon be filled with plastic Lightening McQueens and Maters.
But how does Cars 2 compare to other Hollywood projects when it comes to merchandising? READ FULL STORY
What a difference a year makes: In 2010, Jennifer Lopez was making headlines for the critically reviled catsuit she wore while celebrating New Year’s, just months after she fell onstage at the American Music Awards while singing “Louboutins.” But now, thanks to her judging stint on American Idol, Lopez has reinvented herself as a media and audience darling after proving to be kind, attentive, and, yes, extremely shiny (The sequins! The eyeshadow!) on the Fox reality TV show. So, in turn, People has named the multi-hyphenate 2011’s Most Beautiful Person.
In the issue — which also includes celebrities like Mila Kunis, Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, and The Office stars Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper — Lopez talks about how she survives life in front of unforgiving HD cameras. READ FULL STORY
this cast breakdown that made the rounds this week that compared Alex to the great Darlene Conner, one thing became clear: Alex is the new torch-bearer in the noble tradition of middle daughters on sitcoms.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen Alex go into geek mode, but between her nerdery and
so hot right now. Forbes unveiled its “Power Women” list yesterday, ranking the 100 most powerful women in the world. Coming in in the top slot: Michelle Obama. Oprah was ranked at No. 3, Lady Gaga at No. 7, Beyoncé at No. 9, and Ellen DeGeneres at No. 10. That puts them all ahead of Nancy Pelosi (No. 11), Sonia Sotomayor (No. 19), and the heads of state of Australia (No. 58), Finland (No. 62), Ireland (No. 64), Argentina (No. 68), Iceland (No. 80), Costa Rica (No. 83), and Liberia (No. 86). I was a little surprised to see Sarah Palin outrank Queen Elizabeth — 16 to 41! — but okay.Power rankings — they’re
Beyond the top 10, the entertainment and television news industries are really well represented: Angelina Jolie (No. 21), Katie Couric (No. 22), Madonna (No. 29), Chelsea Handler (No. 33), Heidi Klum (No. 39), Meredith Vieira (No. 40), Sarah Jessica Parker (No. 45), Diane Sawyer (No. 46), Stephenie Meyer (No. 49), Rachel Maddow (No. 50), Suze Orman (No. 61), Gisele Bundchen (No. 72), Rachael Ray (No. 78), and Martha Stewart (No. 99, just squeaked by) all made the cut.
The full list is here, and it’s actually a pretty interesting read. (And when you’re finished scanning the list, check out a teaser for EW’s own Power List, in this week’s issue.) Who do you think they missed, PopWatchers?
