I was unable to clarify this up 'til now." (--George is 50, and Elisabetta is 33 . . . so technically he was old enough to be her dad.) --Obviously there was more going on there than there is in MOST father-daughter relationships. But Elisabetta would like you to know that she and George did NOT break up over arguments about marriage or kids. --She said, quote, "George and I never spoke of marriage nor of having kids . . . neither George nor I had ever envisaged having kids together. --"The end of the relationship was not caused by a marriage issue, but instead by our personal needs." --She added, quote, "George is a real gentleman even in his private life.

(--Lindsay could be taking those new choppers with her to JAIL. She has a hearing on Wednesday to address her probation violation.) (--Speaking of the Lohans . . .

There Will Be No Basketball in November:

Negotiations between NBA players and owners broke down again last week . . . and on Friday, Commissioner DAVID STERN announced that the lockout will continue through the entire month of November. --He said, quote, "We held out that joint hope together, but in light of the breakdown of talks, there will not be a full NBA season under any circumstances. It's not practical, possible or prudent to have a full season now." --The sticking point remains how to split the league's revenues. Owners are demanding a 50-50 split . . . while the players union wants no less than 52%.

(--That's the show that follows the child-hoarding Duggar family. It's since become "19 and Counting".) --He was charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor . . . meaning he possessed a lot of "photos and / or video of a minor engaged in sexual activity." --Blankenship never had any contact with the kids on those shows . . . but obviously, he spent countless hours watching and reviewing footage of them to do his job. --He worked for a company that was subcontracted by TLC. It's unclear how much of a choice he had to take on those shows in particular . . . but it's really hard to believe it was a complete coincidence.) --Ironically, after JON GOSSELIN split from the show . . . and suddenly decided he didn't want his kids on TV . . . he said, quote, "I put my kids out there to every pedophile on the planet and they never got paid for it.") --By the way, here's the latest on KATE GOSSELIN'S crusade to save her kids from having "mediocre" lives like the rest of us. --An "insider" tells the "National Enquirer", quote, "Kate's ultimate goal is to get her kids into the entertainment business and manage their careers.

Fox Is Bringing Back "In Living Color" with Keenen Ivory Wayans:

Yet another old TV show is coming back. Fox is reviving "In Living Color" with KEENEN IVORY WAYANS, who created the show over 20 years ago. --"In Living Color" originally aired on Fox from 1990 to 1994 . . . and launched the careers of JAMIE FOXX, DAVID ALAN GRIER, and a then-unknown comedian named JIM CARREY. It also made the Wayans family household names. --Fox will test the waters by airing two half-hour "In Living Color" specials sometime next spring. If they're successful, it'll become a full-blown series next fall. Keenen will host the specials, with a new cast of, quote, "fresh, young talent." --Some of you may remember that "In Living Color" was also JENNIFER LOPEZ'S first big break.

She delivered the eulogy at his funeral on October 16th, and yesterday, it was published in the "New York Times". --In the eulogy, she revealed the final six words Jobs said to her, his wife, his children, and the rest of his family who was with him the day he died. --She says, quote, "Before embarking, he looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life's partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them. Steve's final words were, 'Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.'" --She believed that showed that for all the innovating he did and for all that he brought to the world, he was still capable of being completely amazed by life . . . even in the end. --Simpson is an award-winning novelist who wrote the books "Off Keck Road" and "Anywhere But Here" . . . which was turned into a movie with Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman. --Since Steve Jobs was adopted, she didn't meet him until he tracked down his biological mother in 1985.

Your Sleep Problems are Costing You $2,280 a Year in Lost Productivity . . . and Costing the Country $63.2 Billion:

None of us get enough sleep. We know that. But did you know your sleep problems could be hurting AMERICA? --That's right. A new study in the journal "Sleep" calculated just how much our sleep problems are costing us . . . and it's a LOT. --They calculated that the average American loses about 11.3 days of productivity per year because of sleep issues. Converted to cash, based on the average salary, that's $2,280 in lost productivity every year. --Spread across the nationwide workforce, that adds up to $63.2 BILLION in lost American productivity.

Stupid Photo of the Day . . . A Three-Eyed Fish Turned Up Near a Nuclear Plant in Argentina:

Hey, REAL LIFE . . . try to be more original. "The Simpsons" did this like two decades ago. --In Argentina, in a reservoir lake near a nuclear power plant, a fisherman caught a THREE-EYED FISH. The same thing happened in a "Simpsons" episode in 1990, where a three-eyed mutated fish turned up outside the power plant. --Scientists are testing the fish to see if the nuclear plant was the cause of the mutation. (io9) (--Here's a photo of the fish, and the one from "The Simpsons".)

Do You Really Want to Know What's Inside of a McRib?

It's that time of year again: The McRib magically reappears at McDonald's for a few weeks . . . only to be snatched away before Thanksgiving. -So here's a dilemma. Do you want to enjoy your few weeks of eating McRibs in blissful ignorance . . . or do you want to go behind the curtain and hear what the actual ingredients are? --If you don't want to know, cover your ears for about 45 seconds . . . NOW.

--Chemicals. There are about 70 ingredients involved . . . 34 of which are in the bun. Most of those are chemicals used for who knows what. But one is azodicarbonamide, which bleaches flour and is also used to make gym mats.

--Pig scraps. The McRib is assembled from pieces of pig like the heart and stomach. Those are cooked together and blended into a substance that IS pig . . . at least technically.

--Lots of salt. Salt is used for flavoring . . . and to extract proteins from the meat which help basically GLUE the stray pig parts together.

--No bones at all. You'll never have to worry about finding a rib bone or any other bone in your McRib . . . just because it's pressed to LOOK like ribs doesn't mean there are actually any ribs inside. (The Week)

A Woman Marries a Man Twice Her Age . . . She's 60, He's 120:

A woman marrying a man twice her age isn't exactly groundbreaking news. Happens all the time. Especially if the guy is rich and the woman is patient. --But this is a new one. Last weekend, in Satghori, in northeast India, a SIXTY-YEAR-OLD WOMAN married a man twice her age. That's right: He's 120 YEARS OLD. --His name is Hazi Abdul Noor. And he married 60-year-old Samoi Bibi in a ceremony that had more than 500 guests. (--So . . . a small Indian wedding.) --More than 100 of the guests were Hazi's immediate family . . . his six children, their children, and their children's children. Hazi's first wife died six years ago. --Hazi could be the oldest man ever . . . but the people at the "Guinness Book of World Records" haven't verified his age. He says he's 120, but he's on the books in India as being a relatively-young 116. (--You can see a list of the verified oldest men ever here.) (CNews) (--Here are a few photos of the couple with some of their family members.)

A Woman Gets Her Boyfriend to Marry Her . . . By Ambushing Him With a Surprise Wedding:

I would SO, SO STRONGLY recommend you do NOT duplicate this. It worked for this woman . . . but has ENORMOUS potential to blow up in your face. --Cherie Butler of Blenheim, New Zealand, wanted to get married to her boyfriend, David Shoemark. (--Their ages weren't given, but they both look to be in their 20s.) --She knew he wanted to marry her too . . . but they could never pull the trigger. So she pulled JUST about the riskiest move you can do. --On Saturday, David went on a fishing trip in the morning, and Cherie asked him to meet her at a park afterward for a picnic. And when he got there . . . SHE AMBUSHED HIM with a WEDDING. --Cherie had been planning it in secret for a month. Forty family members and friends were there, and some of them had traveled from other parts of New Zealand. Cherie was wearing a wedding dress, and there was an official to oversee the wedding. --Amazingly for Cherie, David was totally cool with it and ready to marry her . . . so the ambush surprise wedding went off flawlessly. ( (--Will YOU have that same luck? Think REAL hard before you try to replicate this. Here's a photo of the couple at their wedding.)

Facebook Says That Hackers Try to Take Over 600,000 Accounts a Day:

Last week, Facebook introduced a new feature called "Trusted Friends." --It's not a way to separate your real friends from co-workers and former high-school classmates. It's an added security feature. If you're locked out of your account, a "trusted friend" is someone who can vouch for you and get you back in. --If you're wondering why Facebook needs something above and beyond your password, consider this: They say that hackers try to take over 600,000 accounts, every day. --They're not counting people who are guessing at passwords and getting it wrong, these are hackers who ALREADY have the account's log-on information. --There are about 300 million accounts, so that means that one out of every 500 accounts are compromised . . . EVERY DAY. --Facebook is able to identify and stop the attacks by asking additional security questions or asking the user to identify friends tagged in photos. --If they think an account has been compromised, they lock the user out until they can identify themselves. But in the future, users will be able to ask a Trusted Friend to confirm their identity for them. (MSNBC)

A Man's Brother is Busted for Running a Meth Lab . . . Because the Man was Barbecuing Raccoon Meat Outdoors:

If Memphis wants to avoid a redneck reputation . . . this is NOT good news. Last week, police in Memphis, Tennessee got a phone call about a guy BARBECUING A RACCOON in the parking lot of his apartment complex. --We're pretty sure that even though that's strange, it's legal . . . but apparently it was a slow day for the cops because they still swung by to check things out. --And when they did, they found a few buckets . . . containing residue from METH. Turns out, they belonged to the BROTHER of the guy who was roasting the raccoon. --The raccoon roaster's name wasn't released . . . but his brother is 26-year-old Adam Eubank. They share the same apartment . . . where apparently Adam cooked meth while his brother cooked roadkill. --Adam was arrested and charged with promoting the manufacture of meth . . . all because his brother was cooking raccoon in the parking lot. --The raccoon roasting brother wasn't arrested. (Gawker)

Police in Florida Catch a Woman Hiding Her Crack Pipe Inside Her Bible:

This is definitely NOT What Jesus Would Do. --Last week, police in Fort Pierce, Florida, saw 42-year-old Tonya Sutton walking down the street around 11:30 A.M., drinking out of an open container of Colt 45. For some strange reason it was a 16-ounce can . . . NOT a 40-ounce. --Anyway, they stopped her for the open container, and when they searched her, they found a Bible in her purse. --And when they cracked open the Bible they found . . . it was hollowed out so Tonya could store her CRACK PIPE in there. --Tonya was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and having an open container. (--As for desecrating the Bible for the sake of hiding a crack pipe . . . she'll be facing those charges down the road.) (Treasure Coast Palm)

Managers of a Florida Domino's Were Arrested for Torching a Papa John's:

If you want to win the pizza war, you can improve quality, lower prices . . . or burn the competition's place to the ground. -Two managers of a Domino's franchise in Lake City, Florida were arrested for torching a Papa John's in the area. (--Lake City is 65 miles west of Jacksonville.) --23-year-old Sean Everett Davidson and 22-year-old Bryan David Sullivan started a fire that gutted the place on October 20th. --They built a device out of a nine-volt battery, a golf-ball-sized amount of gunpowder, and a plastic bag, which they used to ignite the fire. --Both men are managers of the local Domino's. They both confessed to police, and Bryan admitted that he thought they'd get more customers if they got rid of their competition. --Police charged both of them with arson, and they're currently in Columbia County jail.

A cop in Miami named Fausto Lopez was pulled over earlier this month, after a female Florida Highway Patrol officer caught him driving over 120 miles an hour on the highway. But it didn't make the news until they released the dash-cam footage. --At first he didn't pull over . . . because cops NEVER get pulled over. So for five minutes, the Highway Patrol officer assumed the squad car was STOLEN. And when he finally stopped, she ordered him out at GUNPOINT. --Then she handcuffed him, gave him a ticket, and yelled at him for putting other drivers at risk.

Which Horror Movie Villain Best Describes Your Financial Situation?

The economy is still in rough shape, and according to an online survey of over 2,200 adults, 38% of Americans cut back on the amount of candy, costumes, and decorations they bought this year. --15% planned on making homemade costumes and homemade decorations. And 20% planned to celebrate Halloween without spending ANY money. --With that said, name brand candy is still the most popular thing to hand out on Halloween. Only 4% of people planned to hand out HOMEMADE treats. --The same survey also asked people to compare their current financial situation to a famous bad guy from a horror movie. Here are the five most popular answers:

#1.) Michael Myers from the "Halloween" Movies. 33% of people identified with Michael, because he always finds a way to survive, no matter how bad things get. If you've never seen the movies, he's impossible to kill.

#2.) Freddy Krueger from "Nightmare on Elm Street". 11% said Freddy because their financial situation haunts their dreams, and they lie awake at night thinking about it.

#3.) Ghostface from the "Scream" Movies. 11% chose this one because money problems always seem to pop up out of nowhere.

#4.) Jason from "Friday the 13th". 6% said Jason because they're, quote, "ashamed" of their finances, and feel like hiding behind a mask . . . a.k.a., Jason's HOCKEY mask.

#5.) Chucky from "Child's Play". 3% chose Chucky because they, quote, "need to grow up" when it comes to handling money. (
