Poor New Jersey. Long the butt of jokes and a source of nationwide scorn, the Garden State's reputation has taken countless beatings over the years. And thank you, "Jersey Shore," for doing nothing to elevate the maligned state's image. So it came as no surprise to see the reactions of fellow Angelenos when I stated our plans last August: a vacation in the seaside hamlet of Cape May, the southernmost town on the Jersey coast and America's first seashore resort. The responses ranged from pity to bewilderment to smirking, with only a few registering as enthusiastic understanding.

How can a home television set cost $85,000? It's big. Bang & Olufsen's new BeoVision 4-85 plasma TV has an 85-inch screen, measured diagonally, which conveniently comes out to $1,000 an inch. But there is at least one other plasma TV of that size, and it costs far less. Panasonic's 85-inch model goes for about $40,000. B&O, known mainly for its high-end audio equipment, boasts other attributes for its BeoVision set, including a triangular speaker system that jets out from under the screen, 3-D capability and proprietary enhancements to picture quality.

Viacom Inc. and CBS Corp. Chairman Sumner Redstone was etched in entertainment history Friday when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The aging mogul's family members and some of Hollywood's most powerful executives were on hand to witness the tribute on Hollywood Boulevard, just outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where the first Oscar ceremony was held. Viacom Chief Executive Philippe Dauman compared Redstone to Adolph Zukor, the visionary New York nickelodeon owner who became one of the first people to make big money in movies.

The network ultimately decided not to move forward with the series, and episodes that had already been shot will not be aired.

Thanks to a brewing scandal centering on the closure of lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge, it might seem like Fort Lee, N.J., with its massively snarled traffic, has something in common with Los Angeles. But blood-boiling gridlock is hardly the only similarity between the two places: The site of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's Bridgegate scandal was, in fact, once a cradle of the American film industry. The city that sits across the Hudson River from Northern Manhattan was a precursor of sorts to Hollywood when it came to film activity.

Marc Jacobs isn't one to shy away from fashion risks. The often iconoclastic superstar designer - who has become synonymous with a certain young, casually cool New York state of mind - helped usher in the controversial "heroin chic" look in the '90s and favors a combo of kilts and combat boots for his daily work uniform. But for Jacobs' debut film role in the indie drama "Disconnect," which arrived in theaters in limited release last Friday, the style maven was forced to step outside his comfort zone - in terms of both fashion and raw physicality.
