The Reentry: November 21
It’s been a busy weekend. Jay Cutler was wounded, Kenneth Cole joined the Occupy crowd, and a radio DJ accidentally implicated Christopher Walken in an open murder case. In case you missed it, we’ve got a full update after the jump.

Now get out there and show the week who’s boss.
