Tango’s Take According to Hollyscoop.com Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson are dating again. We’re sure that this will serve as fodder for DC’s stand-up act and it will probably go something like this:
From Salon By Izzy Grinspan In a kind of rebellion against America's wedding mania, an increasing number of brides are trashing their dresses and having photographers capture these moments of rage. Weddings present a staggering array of decisions. Nobody wants to obsess over after-dinner mints, but what if you're remembered forever as "those cheap, mintless bastards"? Then there's the venue, the flowers, the invitations. Recently, one more item has crept onto this mind-bendingly long list: What is the bride going to do with her dress after the ceremony? Preserve it, give it away -- or wreck it?
From TODAYShow.com By Peter Greenberg Are you thinking of getting married? Are you a gambler, or, as Clint Eastwood once said, are you feeling... lucky? Then do we have a calendar date for you. July 7th, otherwise known as 7/7/7 is fast approaching, and the travel industry is moving quickly to exploit the supposedly lucky date with all sorts of special packages, promotions and stunts: According to theknot.com, more than 38,000 people are registered to get married on their site on July 7th. That's more than triple the normal number of 12,000. And, let's not forget that Eva Longoria is also getting married on 7/7/7 — in Paris. Why? Well, some might say it's a lucky day. Others would argue that it's the one anniversary date that husbands are likely not to forget. And when it comes to hotels and resorts, the number 7 figures prominently. Want a discount? New York
So, son, when did you first 'dip your wick?' From Channel4.com More than a quarter of people in the UK are still not using contraception when they lose their virginity, according to a global sex report. The Face of Global Sex 2007 shows people across the world are now more likely than ever before to use contraception when they first have sex.

According to the AP, Johnny Knoxville, nee Philip John Clapp, has filed for divorce, citing ‘irreconcilable differences.’ Johnny Knoxville has been married to Melanie Clapp for 12 years and he is seeking joint custody of their daughter, Madison. The Clapps have been separated since July 2006. It’s amazing that JK has been married for so long and more or less on the DL. The great thing about ‘irreconcilable differences’ as divorce motive is that it can mean so many things. We think it typically means that one or both parties wants to sleep with other people. But it can sometimes mean that one party lives an ‘alternative lifestyle’ or has an $800-a-day drug habit and their spouse loves them enough to protect their privacy but not stay with them. Who knew that Johnny’s real name was Phil Clapp? It sounds like what old sailors would call getting VD while on shore leave in Philadelphia. “I seen Lerlene last weekend; pretty sure that she gave me the Phil Clap.”
From Reuters By Claudia Parsons NEW YORK (Reuters) - British author Salman Rushdie and his wife Padma Lakshmi, host of TV show "Top Chef," are getting divorced, his spokeswoman said on Monday, just two weeks after he was awarded a controversial knighthood. Rushdie, 60, is best known for his novel "The Satanic Verses," which outraged many Muslims and sparked death threats that forced him to live in hiding for nine years. He married Lakshmi, a former model born in 1970 in India, in 2004. She was his fourth wife and the couple had no children. "Salman Rushdie has agreed to divorce his wife, Padma Lakshmi, because of her desire to end their marriage," spokeswoman Jin Auh said in a statement on his behalf.

From The Sydney Morning Herald By Josephine Tovey Most American movies these days contain swearing that would make a sailor blush, but there remains one word that apparently cannot be said. You can say the f-word, the c-word and some people can even get away with the n-word. But if you're a pregnant young women in a Hollywood film, it seems you still can't say the a-word. In an industry where there are few taboos left, abortion remains an issue that is sidestepped, ignored or glossed over. A Hollywood comedy to be released in Australia tomorrow is the latest in a string of "pregnancy" movies in which abortion is still the hardest word to say. Knocked Up is about a woman at the start of a promising career who becomes pregnant after a drunken one-night stand with a "slacker". The film's poster shows the guy's chubby, scruffy face adorned with the tagline "What if this guy got you pregnant?". In reality, most women would at least consider an abortion. Tango’s Take
