Ready for Monday morning water cooler chatter? Here's the scoop on what your favorite celebs were up to this weekend.

  • After a rough year battling breast cancer, former Samantha Who? star Christina Applegate revealed that she's got major plans for the future -- including an impending walk down the aisle. Applegate announced her February 14 engagement to her boyfriend of two years, Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble, but the pair have yet to set a date.
  • You're never too old to celebrate -- and in style! Fete-ing her 38th birthday on Saturday, Jennifer Garner and hubby Ben Affleck partied down with high-profile pals Reese Witherspoon, Tobey Maguire, Don Cheadle, Jason Bateman, Jimmy Kimmel and other A-list guests at her Pacific Palisades, Calif., home. But Garner also scored some quality time with her daughter, Violet, 4, on Friday, when the girls nabbed pedicures at a local salon.
  • True Blood hottie Alexander Skarsgard was restrained by police at the Coachella festival on Sunday. Apparently, the actor got a bit rough with a paparazzo that was trying to snap shots of him and reported girlfriend Kate Bosworth. The pair were spotted getting cozy at the Indio, Calif., music fest -- and Kate even rode on Alex's shoulders so she could see above the crowd.
  • Can't wait for the all-Madonna episode of Glee? Neither, apparently, could Madonna. So she checked out already. The verdict? "Brilliant on every level," the Material Mom told Us Magazine. "The dialogue and the entire script was genius. I completely appreciated the layers of irony, especially when all those macho boys sang 'What It Feels Like for a Girl.'" You can check out the Madonna episode on Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
