This week in the lives of the rich and famous…

The “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson appeared on competing late night talk shows Monday to promote the final film in the series. Unlike the emotional conclusion of the “Harry Potter” films, most fans are glad to see this drawn-out story finally come to an (extremely anticlimactic) end. Stay strong, for the days we spend enduring interviews in which Kristen Stewart reveals what it’s like to play a vampire are almost over.

Martha Stewart is set to produce a Fox sitcom, “Tao of Martha,” about a frazzled young woman who finds therapeutic properties in the philosophies and teachings of Martha Stewart. Sounds like Nora Ephron’s “Julie & Julia,” but with a less promising premise.

Michelle Trachtenberg is set to guest star as a psychopathic stalker who goes crazy after not being hired for a particular job in an upcoming episode of “Criminal Minds.” We hate to break it to you, but typically it’s a bad sign to be typecast as a young woman wrought with insanity (see Georgina Sparks of “Gossip Girl”).

Who wouldn’t want to live in a home haunted by the King of Pop?  For those of you who have more than $18 million lying around, unfortunately, Michael Jackson’s last abode is no longer on the market. The Holmby Hills mansion was sold to a buyer with an undisclosed identity. We’ll see how long these new residents last before deciding to beat it.

Sharon Osbourne reported Monday that she’s through with plastic surgery. The host of the sophomoric show “America’s Got Talent” regrets infusing her body with artificial substances after a mastectomy and two failed breast implants. Maybe her unglamorous experiences will pave the way for young women with high self-esteem — that is, unless Heidi Montag, already almost 100 percent plastic, adds another surgery to her whopping 27.

Gwen Stefani’s band No Doubt discontinued production of the music video for “Looking Hot,” which was considered offensive to Native Americans. Music videos are commonly racy artistic expressions, but we wonder how Katy Perry’s sexually explicit videos have yet to spark a controversy. Here’s looking at you, “Peacock.”
