Nicole Kidman says she was engaged to a mystery man in between breaking up with Tom Cruise and marrying Keith Urban. "I didn't really want a relationship," Kidman tells Vanity Fair. "I just wanted my kids to have me, and I didn't feel comfortable having someone in that small hubbub." "And then I got engaged ... but it just wasn't right. I wasn't ready. We weren't ready." "I get engaged and I get married - that's my thing," she says, declining to reveal the fiancé's identity. "I don't want to date. I'm interested in a very, very deep connection." Kidman and Cruise divorced in 2001 after 10 years of marriage. They have two adopted children, Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12. Tango’s Take
From Reuters NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Women who are particularly anxious about their pregnancy may be at increased risk of premature delivery, a new study suggests. Researchers found that among 1,820 pregnant women, those with the greatest concerns about their pregnancy were nearly three times more likely than those with the least anxiety to deliver prematurely. The findings are published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine. Stress during pregnancy has been linked to a higher risk of complications in some studies, though not all. And those that have identified a link have not suggested any simple solutions to the problem. Tango’s Take
From TMZ.com Look out ladies (seriously, get out of his way), Big Shaq Diesel is going back on the market. In divorce papers filed Tuesday in a Miami court, Shaquille O'Neal claimed his marriage to wife Shaunie has been "irretrievably broken," and accuses her of being shady with his cash, reports the Miami Herald. The couple has four kids together, and each has a child from a previous relationship. They tied the knot in a ridiculously lavish Beverly Hills ceremony in 2002. Shaq, who is currently in a contract with the Miami Heat worth a cool $100 mil, claims that his wife has been "secretive about her assets," and he has asked the court to order a full investigation into every penny she came into during their union.

Tango’s Take T-Mag has made an honest woman out of his baby’s mama. Good effort. It helps when she is the daughter of the president of Universal Studios. Yep, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer got married over the weekend in Hawaii. They had a daughter, Ruby, last November. We don’t have much else to say except THE CIDER HOUSE RULES! In Other Celebrity Family News: Halle Berry is three months pregnant. Waaaaaaah! She and model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry have a baby on board. Berry was supposed to start filming Tulia with Lionsgate in October but those plans are now on hold. It’s interesting that she decided to have a baby considering her stance on not getting married again. We guess you don’t need to be married to have children, though statistically speaking, it’s better for the kids. Maybe they can have one of those Kurt Russell-Goldie Hawn relationships. Except more sexy and less adorable.

From The Daily Telegraph By Laura Clout Scientists have discovered a potential link between deodorants and breast cancer. High levels of aluminum, which makes up 90 per cent of the anti-perspirant part of most products, were found in the breast tissue of cancer patients who had undergone mastectomies. The element has been linked to the disease by earlier studies. Scientists have previously warned that aluminum could be absorbed through the skin, particularly after the armpits are shaved. Once in the body, it may mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to be involved in the development and progression of breast cancer. Tango’s Take
From The New York Times By Randi Hutter Epstein, MD Dr. Sarah L. Berga has devoted her career to one of the most hotly debated subjects in the fertility business: getting pregnant without costly drugs. She is one of a handful of physician-scientists exploring how chronic stress may keep some women from ovulating and how relaxation techniques may help. More precisely, these researchers are examining how chronic stress alters brain signals to the hypothalamus, the walnut-size organ that serves as the master of ceremonies overseeing the delicately timed hormonal dance. Or as Dr. Berga puts it, she explores “how the hypothalamus talks to the pituitary that in turns talks to the ovary.” Tango’s Take
