A normally busy stretch of the 73 toll road in coastal Orange County will be closed this weekend for filming of "The Hangover Part 3," a deal that is drawing thumbs-down reviews from some. "I think that it's another example of a state agency that just does what it wants without understanding what it does to a local community," said Costa Mesa City Councilman Steve Mensinger. "Clearly," he added, "the state doesn't care what happens in local communities. " The three-mile section of California 73 from the 405 Freeway in Costa Mesa to Jamboree Road in Newport Beach serves as a gateway for southbound traffic in the county.

Justin Timberlake said adieu to his single life on Thursday in Las Vegas, as the actor-singer was spotted with a crew of friends celebrating what appeared to be his bachelor party. Kicking off at the Wynn's Sinatra Restaurant, JT and a group of about 25 guys decked out in Rat Pack-esque suits for a meal, according to a Ministry source - more than appropriate as the joint is described as a culinary tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes. Heading to the hotel's Surrender nightclub just before midnight, Timberlake and company climbed out of their formal wear and into bathing suits, splashing in a private infinity pool within a reserved cabana. Timberlake sipped on 901 tequila, his own brand, while his party opted for vodka and Red Bull.

Zach Galifianakis' wolf pack is increasing by one: "The Hangover" star is reportedly engaged and already planning the wedding. Sorry, but did we already miss the bachelor party? Hopefully it wasn't anything like Stu's Thailand bachelor brunch. Galifianakis, 42, quietly proposed to his longtime girlfriend Mary Quinn Lundberg, 29, and the two have already dropped the invites to their Aug. 11 wedding in the mail, according to Celebuzz. Galifianakis' rep has declined to comment on the report.

Turns out Cinderella wears hockey skates after all. L.A. Live exploded in celebration Monday night, the Kings' 19-year rebuilding plan finally coming to fruition. And their fans to full ignition. Boisterous and beery-eyed, they took to the streets surrounding Staples Center, hugging, high-fiving, even crying as they celebrated something their sports-obsessed city has never had: an NHL championship. OK, Kings fans, you can exhale now. Your Cup runneth over. The celebration - and I knew you'd worry - was fervent but largely peaceful, at least in the initial 90 minutes.

Mazel tov, England. As your former suburb, we just want you to know how enchanted we are with what's happening over there right now between William and Catherine (a.k.a. Kate). We hear there'll be some sort of ceremony soon. The world will pause. Hearts will flutter. I'll eat a turtle dove -- extra fries. For a moment, the British Empire will shine once more. And, through it all, America will have wedding envy. What's wedding envy? That's when someone has a bigger wedding than yours.
