From The Daily Mail In another twist to the troubled life of singer Britney Spears, friends of the star have said she is pregnant – and may not be sure who the father is. According to reports, a source close to the star told Australian magazine NW that the 25-year-old had confided news of her pregnancy to close friends. The source claimed: "She's been secretly filling her pals in on the good news since last week." Tango’s Take Wow. What if K-Fed wasn’t the one with the magic seed? What if Brit and SharJack both have crazy fertile uteruses (uteri?)? This could put a crimp in the K-Fed as super inseminator conceit. What if he is the father of the next Spears’ child? P-Nut and Tater Tot could have a little brother. We’re willing to bet that this one isn’t true. Did you hear about this Christina Aguilera is pregnant thing? It’s like it’s 1999 again and Xtina and Britney are competing for our affection. Maudlin.
From LA Times By Chandra Shekhar VIVIAN AIZAWA of Salinas vividly remembers the first time her body was hit by a heat wave out of the blue -- an episode of warmth, flushing and sweating that "almost felt like climate change," the 53-year-old says. The hot flashes and night sweats affected her sleep and strained her relationships. "It is ruining my life," she told her doctor. Nearly three out of four women will share Aizawa's experience as they go through menopause. Many, in fact, will get hot flashes and night sweats several times a day for years, each episode lasting from a few seconds to several minutes. "It impacts literally millions of women worldwide," says Dr. Wulf Utian, president of the Ohio-based North American Menopause Society, a nonprofit that promotes menopause research. "While not life-threatening, it is a major impediment to their quality of life."

Pay up, buddy. From The San Francisco Gate A judge ordered an Orange County man to continue paying $1,250 a month in alimony to his former wife — even though she's in a registered domestic partnership with another woman. State marriage laws say that alimony ends when a former spouse remarries. So Ron Garber thought he was off the hook for the payments when he learned his ex-wife, Melinda Kirkwood, registered her new relationship under the state's domestic partnership law. But an Orange County judge decided that a registered partnership is cohabitation, not marriage, and that Garber must keep writing checks to his ex-spouse.
From News24.com Jakarta - When Singapore's "Dr Love" invites you up to his hotel room, you don't say no. And once you're inside, he doesn't disappoint. The doctor's got plans for educating close to the entire world about sex. The starting point is his laptop - and Indonesia. Wei Siang Yu, nicknamed "Dr Love" for his flamboyant, non-conventional methods of sex education for Singaporeans, has now launched his innovative programme in the world's most populous Muslim nation. Indonesians can send anonymous questions about sex via mobile phone text messages. And an avatar called "Nova" - a virtual character with artificial intelligence - will then answer. Some might get a personal response from one of the Indonesian doctors on the panel behind "Nova". But all the queries will be compiled and responded to on the "Love Airways" website, where anyone can log on and learn, he says.
