Founder Adam Sandow, president of Boca Raton-based Sandow Media insists that his New Beauty magazine is not only about going under the knife. "Cosmetic enhancement" he calls the content.
The magazine will not have an editor-in-chief, just an editorial board. It will publish 13 regional editions, each carrying about 25% local advertising from doctors and beauty companies. It will be published twice in 2005 and quarterly in 2006.
I mean, where else but the movies would Tara Reid get to pretend to be a brilliant anthropologist or Denise Richards a nuclear physicist?

To give you up
I took a sip
From my devil cup
It's taking over me "

Former "Moesha" star Shar Jackson - whose longtime boyfriend, Kevin Federline, left her and their two children to marry Britney Spears - is sick and tired of living in the pop tart's reflected glare.
"I was my own person before the whole Britney thing," Jackson told a reporter yesterday. "I was an actress and a celebrity before the whole Britney thing. And if this has been the focus, that's pretty upsetting."
--Oh Shar. Shar, Shar, Shar. Who are you kidding? No one knew who the hell you were before Britneygate. This is the best thing that could have happened to your career and you know it.

Looks like Mariah Carey is moving to Britain. The songstress, 34, whose new album The Emancipation Of Mimi is due out in March, is set to star in a musical version of The Prince And The Showgirl in London's West End next year - and sources tell us she's keen to snap up a permanent home in the capital.
"Mariah's pretty much confirmed as the lead in the musical - she'll be starring as Elsie Marina, the role Marilyn Monroe made famous on film. "As she's likely to be here for several months, she's looking to buy a place in Belgravia. It has to have at least six bedrooms and it's fair to say that money is no object."
--Wait. Didn't she learn not to do acting EVER again after that Glitter fiasco?
Well, a Hoosier other than Michael Jackson has made the gossip pages of the New York Post.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning wasn't happy the way the New England Patriots ended his season. At Edith's restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the other night, Manning "looked totally dejected and had a puss on his face of 'Don't bother me,' " a spy reports.
Peyton drank Coronas and his wife, Ashley, sipped margaritas. "Everyone knew who he was, including the Mexican waitstaff . . . He kept telling the waiters, 'This week I am known as Javier Lopez.' " Manning devoured a platter of shrimp, lobster tail and filet mignon, but "he was avoiding all eye contact with everyone else in the restaurant and stared out into space a lot," said our witness.
"At one point, his wife asked him if he was listening to her and when he did not respond, she grabbed his hand and asked him again and he said despondently, 'No, I was thinking about football.' And when it came time to pay the bill, the wife said she would put it on her credit card since it is the same account, and he said, 'Believe me, I know.' "
Boy, Kevin Costner is really stretching himself with his role in an upcoming movie.
Brace yourselves, folks: it's about baseball. Oh, but he says it's totally different than Bull Durham, Field of Dreams and For the Love of the Game.
Anyone can have a friendship with benefits but it takes a special person to be a porn buddy. Thats what New York-based performance artist Rachel Shukert discovered last year after a painful breakup with her boyfriend.
Instead of finding a part-time lover for booty calls, Shukert chose to spend her time watching porn with a hunky male neighbor who became her porn buddy.
She says her porn buddy made her feel sexy without having sex and helped her figure out what she wanted in her next serious relationship.

A Southern California man has sued MGM Mirage for preying on his gambling addiction and inducing him to borrow and lose millions of dollars at its Las Vegas casinos.
The suit was filed on Monday in a Los Angeles U.S. District Court by Shibley Horaney, a resident of Newport Beach, California, who says that since 1995 he has lost and paid back about $4 million on credit provided to him by the MGM Grand and $1 million on credit from The Mirage casino.
In 2003, he borrowed and lost another $475,000, which the casinos are still seeking to collect.
--Suits like this make me ashamed I'm a lawyer. Actually, it makes me want to beat up the guy that actually took this case for giving the rest of us a bad name.
Patricia Tabram, 66, began using the illicit drug in her country kitchen as a "natural remedy" to ease a painful back injury after a car crash. Soon she was throwing dinner parties for elderly friends who chipped in Â£150 a time for the secret ingredient in her unique "hot pots".
But local police were quickly on the scent of her mind- blowing soups, curries and chocolate cake. She guided five officers to the attic, where they found 31, 10in-high seedlings and self-seal bags used to supply the drug to unnamed friends. "They thought it was in a hut outside," she recalled, "But I told them it wasn't. "They took my diaries, my nail scissors which I used to cut up the buds, and my pamphlets and books which I used for research."

Debbie Gibson is launching her pop comeback by shedding her togs for Playboy.
Gibson, who is still just 34-years-old, has decided that dropping her knick-knacks is the best way to promote her comeback tune, Naked.
--Man, this is weird. She was like the Sandra Dee of my era. Embarrassing admission coming: I LOVED her. I had the albums, and I even had that God-awful "Electric Youth" perfume. Then, when she made it big on Broadway, that was IT for me--she was my idol. More power to her, I guess. Most of her fan base probably isn't young and impressionable anymore anyway.
Keira Knightley recalls telling a director: "You're not going to see my arse! The top half is fine but the bottom half isn't."
Asked why she is comfortable with showing her breasts but not her behind, Keira says: "It's a girl thing. You know, it's just one of those things..."
--Eh, she's only 19--of course she still has standards. (Although, is that a shirt? What is that exactly?)
Celebs just can't keep out of trouble:
