Union, 41, who stars in BET's Being Mary Jane , tells Glamour she and Wade broke up because her work was so demanding.

THEY WERE TWO peas in a pod, those Khawam sisters, known simply as "the twins" at Lower Moreland High School back in the early '90s. Jill and Natalie Khawam, who moved to the school in their junior year and graduated in 1993, fancied tight jeans and flirting, recalled a former classmate, who spoke on condition that his name not be used. Still, even the babes had detractors (this was high school, don't forget) who made fun of their noses, according to the British Daily Mail website.

The Peyton Manning era resumed as expected on Sunday night in Denver, and he looked like the same guy that became a legend in Indianapolis. He was 19 of 26 for 245 yards and two touchdowns, and the Broncos beat Pittsburgh, 31-19. Mike Tomlin needed few words to describe the guy who ripped apart the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense in the Mile High City. "He's Peyton," the coach said with a shrug. Wearing orange for the first time since his playing days at Tennessee, the former Indianapolis Colts star wasn't about to let a 20-month layoff for neck surgery wreck his opening night debut.

CAIRO - A lawmaker from Egypt's most conservative Islamist party resigned from parliament after he was caught lying to cover up a nose job, claiming the injuries to his heavily bandaged face were from a carjacking and beating. Parliament member Anwar al-Balkimy represented the Al-Nour party, whose members, known as Salafis, follow a strict interpretation of Islam that forbids cosmetic surgery as meddling in God's work. The party said Monday he had resigned; Al-Nour was forced to issue an embarrassing and apologetic statement.

QUICK, SOMEONE tell the Tampa Bay Rays that giveaway days are supposed to attract fans, not scare them away. On June 29, those who attend the Rays game against the visiting Tigers will receive something called a Zim Bear. As you can see by the photo, it's a terrifying hybrid between a teddy bear and 81-year-old Rays assistant coach Don Zimmer. If they give this thing out, they will need to make trauma counselors available in the concourse. Hell, it would even scare Pedro Martinez.

After 15 seasons, the Boston Red Sox apparently will need a new leader. Jason Varitek has been absent for the first two days of workouts by pitchers and catchers. General manager Ben Cherington offered the soon-to-be 40-year-old captain a minor-league deal months ago, but the catcher never responded. Varitek has three options: He can take the minor-league deal; try to convince another team to give an aging backstop with declining skills a chance as a backup; or retire. It must be noted that Varitek's close friend and fellow veteran Tim Wakefield, retired last week.

METS PITCHER Jon Niese nose he looks different, and he's got former teammate Carlos Beltran to thank for it. The lefthander showed up for spring training yesterday sporting a new schnoz. Niese said he got the idea for a nose job from Beltran who - before being traded to the Giants last July - jokingly said, "We need to get you a new nose. " "He wanted me to have a new nose," Niese told reporters yesterday. "So he offered to pay for it. I was just like, 'All right.' Then it turned into seeing doctors and to getting it fixed.

A Center City physician, nearing 60, didn't like the slight tilt to the tip of his nose. A former Israeli combat soldier, now a nightclub manager in New York, felt his crooked nose eroded his confidence. A New Jersey teen, a star on the high school field hockey team, used to reach up, finger the bump on her bridge, and wonder if everyone was staring. And a Jamaican-born woman who loved her Caribbean features thought her nose was out of proportion to the rest of her face. Today, all four have new noses - symmetrical, straightened, smoothed-out, or cartilage-enhanced, reshaped at the tip or narrowed at the bridge.

Question: I have a 2-year-old daughter (almost 3). My mother lives several states away, but we Skype regularly; she rarely visits. She has always been very focused on looks - I grew up feeling unattractive - and now she has turned her attention to my daughter, saying things during our Skyping discussions like, "She's too fat. She needs to exercise every day. And she needs plastic surgery on her nose. " My daughter is an adorable and perfectly normal girl. I'm afraid she might start understanding these things soon.
