JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT BREAKS HER WRIST: Jennifer Love Hewitt broke her wrist over the weekend. The actress suffered the injury during her fitness routine in preparation for the second season of Lifetime’s The Client List — in which she plays a single mother working as a high-class prostitute. She tweeted, “Guess who broke her wrist yesterday boxing to get fit for season two! I will be spending the weekend resting in my pjs.”

KENDRA WILKINSON’S SON HOSPITALIZED: Kendra Wilkinson’s two-year-old son Hank Baskett IV was briefly hospitalized over the weekend after he passed out. TMZ.com reported that a 911 call was placed from the reality star’s home, and Hank had already regained consciousness when paramedics arrived. The doctor said that little Hank likely suffered loss of consciousness due to overheating from running around the house — which is relatively common in children.

GUY RITCHIE ENGAGED: Guy Ritchie is engaged. Us Weekly reported that Madonna’s ex has proposed to his pregnant girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley. The couple, who already have a son named Rafael, recently announced that they’re expecting a second child.

QVC HOST COLLAPSES ON AIR: A QVC guest host collapsed on the air over the weekend — but she has since made a full recovery. TMZ.com reported that Cassie Slane clutched her chest and appeared to faint while live on TV. Although she returned to the shot just minutes later, Cassie then began slurring her words and she was taken out of the segment. She tweeted on Monday, “Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Feeling better today.” Check it out: http://tmz.me/SJcjj3

BEAR GRYLLS GETS A NEW JOB: Bear Grylls has a new job. The former Man vs. Wild star will host an NBC reality competition series next summer called Get Out Alive, which will feature two teams testing their survival skills in the wilderness. He said in a statement, “‘Get Out Alive’ will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward — but first there must be some pain.”

LEAH DUNHAM SIGNS HUGE BOOK DEAL: Leah Dunham has landed a major payday for her personal essay collection. Random House has reportedly acquired the work after paying the Girls creator over $3.5 million. Publishers reportedly bid for the collection, called, “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned,” and Leah selected Random House over the weekend. The publisher said in a statement, “We’re thrilled to welcome Lena to Random House. Her skill on the page as a writer is remarkable — fresh, wise, so assured. She is that rare literary talent that will only grow from strength to strength and we look forward to helping her build a long career as an author.”

SNOOKI SKIPS PREMIERE PARTY: Snooki skipped the Jersey Shore premiere party in favor of a low-key night in with her son Lorenzo. A source told the New York Post, “Snooki called [co-star] Deena Cortese before the party. Snooki told her she wasn’t going, but it had nothing to do with the rest of the cast. She wanted to stay home with the kid.”

Jennifer Aniston finally showed off her engagement ring from fiance Justin Theroux over the weekend. The actress was photographed sporting a massive diamond in New Mexico, where she’s filming We Are the Millers.

It’s unclear exactly how big the ring is, but it appears to be a single diamond that stretches from the base of her finger up to her knuckle.

  • The couple got engaged in August after more than a year together.

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have separated after 30 years of marriage. The two tied the knot in 1982 and have three grown children together.

The famously petite pair (DeVito is 5’0″; Perlman 5’1″) met in 1970 and lived together for 11 years before walking down the aisle.

TMZ.com reported that they first crossed paths when Rhea went to see the off-Broadway play, The Shrinking Bride in which Danny was starring.

  • A rep for the couple confirmed their split, but no reason was given.
