Let me see your thong tha-thong-thong thong: It wasn't gravity that kept Toni Braxton's gown in all the right places at the 2001 Grammy Awards. "The dress had a thong inside, and we used double-stick tape on top," she told New York's Daily News. "It stayed put all night." The gray jersey dress, on loan from designer Richard Tyler, had half a front, no sides and no back. Tyler said 10 people have already called his Los Angeles store to request the $3,400 gown. You know, I don't think 10 people are going to fit in that. Visit for a complete list of the night's winners.

And Iran, Iran so far away: A Lebanese town has entered the Guinness Book of Records for making the world's largest bowl of tabbouleh, a national salad dish that has been steadily gaining popularity abroad. A statement by Qurnet Shahwan municipality, in the hills above Beirut, said it received a certificate from Guinness World Record Ltd citing the 3,337-pound tabbouleh -- washed, chopped and mixed by 158 people during a town festival last year. Tabbouleh's main ingredients are crushed wheat, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, mint and onion. The Lebanese often wash the healthy salad down with Iraq, a strong spirit. Now wait, sorry, that's "arak". My mistake. Visit and improve your writing skills.

And that's my final answer: New "Live with Regis and Kelly" co-host Kelly Ripa said she'll talk just as incessantly about her children as her predecessor, Kathie Lee Gifford, once did. "If you're a mother and you don't talk about your children, there is something very wrong with you," Ripa said in the Feb. 24th issue of TV Guide. Just as long as she doesn't start talking about Kathie Lee's kids, I think this cutey will be worth watching. Visit for a daily show listing.

11 Herbs and Spices: Sporty Spice Mel C, dumped by her latest boyfriend Dan Williams, now fears that men find her tomboy image too frightening, the Sun newspaper has reported. The paper said the Spice Girl believed Dan, from the group Tomcat, was scared off by her 10 tattoos. "Mel reckons her celebrity or her tomboy appearance might frighten men away," the Sun quoted a friend of Mel's as saying. Ok I can't believe I am wasting space on this stupidity. I would refer you to but it's undergoing major reconstruction. Maybe Sporty should too, huh?
