From The New York Post’s Page Six By Paula Froelich June 25, 2007 -- JUST as David beat Goliath, upstart OK! has given People a knuckle sandwich in the ongoing weekly-celebrity-magazine wars. Sources said People "laid the groundwork" for landing exclusive photos of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker's July 7 wedding - but Page Six has learned that OK! won the frenzied bidding. Sources close to the negotiations said OK! paid more than $2 million. It was a surprising - and costly - end to the battle for the privilege to snap the nuptials, which the "Desperate Housewives" hottie and her San Antonio Spur fiancé plan to hold in a romantic castle in Paris.

From People By Emily Fromm "I'm not sure when or why the tabloid angle on me was decided that I am a cad," the Scrubs star writes on his MySpace blog. "I would have much rather it had been that I am secretly a dentist or that I love soup." He continues: "I am in fact, merely doing what every other single 32 year old man in NYC is doing this summer. I am dating. If you must read that stuff, please don't digest it as fact." That "stuff" could include reports that he was spotted "all over yet another hot young blonde" (the New York Post) and has been "deploying pickup lines such as 'You have a nice bottom' and 'You have a hot bod' " (Radar online).

His retirement plan included sleeping until 7 AM everyday. Her plan included hallucinogens. From Money Magazine By Walter Updegrave (Money Magazine) -- When it comes to retirement planning, a couple should work together like an experienced doubles tennis team, each partner attuned to the other's moves and both striving toward a common goal. That's the theory, but earlier this year a Fidelity Investments survey of 502 couples ages 43 to 70 found that husbands and wives often act as if they're playing singles games. How far apart were they? Well, 35% were off by more than two years when asked when their spouse would retire. Failing to plan together can leave one of you financially clueless. Anthony Ogorek, a Williamsville, N.Y. financial planner, recently met with a 72-year-old woman who had invested her IRA in high-fee annuities after her husband's death.
From NewsMax.com It's a question that often prompts a boastful answer or a bashful one: How many sex partners have you had? Now the federal government says it has authoritative statistics, documenting that men are far more likely to play the field than women. Also, about 96 percent of U.S. adults have had sex by the age of 20.

The median number of lifetime female sexual partners for men was seven; the median number of male partners for women was four. Tango’s Take
