Anytime a celebrity's image is digitally altered in a magazine, a buzz is created. But the latest incident of retouched photographs being scrutinized - a Redbook magazine cover of country singer Faith Hill - has reignited the discussion in a fast and furious way. Since the Web site Jezebel.com revealed an un-retouched photograph of the 39-year-old star and mother of three and compared it to the thinner, younger-looking image that appeared on Redbook's cover, bloggers have been emoting right and left, NBC's Today show devoted a five-minute segment to the issue of altered photos, and even noted columnist Simon Dumenco, from Advertising Age, felt compelled to give his 2 cents on the matter: "Hey, would you want your back fat on the cover of Redbook?"

LET'S BEGIN with a different kind of word association game, shall we? When I say the word "married," what is the absolute last word that pops into your mind? How about, oh ... "lust"? Those are two words you don't see linked every day, right? Yet "Married Lust" is the title of a new book that just crossed my desk, written by Pamela Lister, a contributing editor to Redbook magazine. The subtitle, by the way, is: "10 Secrets of Long-Lasting Desire." Look, I don't know how it is with you. But when you get to be my age and someone hands you a book with "lust" in one title and "desire" in the other, you tend to sit up and take notice.

She was feeling sick, but her friends talked her into going to TGIFriday's in Towson for "Monday Night Football" anyway. "I'm a Steelers fan," she explained, adding that she was not exactly dressed for romance. "I was wearing a jersey, a baseball hat backward, jeans with holes in them and work boots." She saw a fellow she thought was a "hunk" at the bar. His name was Chris Caretti, and as Whitney recalls: "He looked like James Bond in a three-piece suit, leaning against the bar, watching the game with a martini in his hand.
