The Iverson divorce - a strange, postmodern form of emotional musical chairs - has taken another strange zig. TMZ says Allen Iverson wants to stop - abort, annul, abrogate - divorce proceedings, sputtering on since March 2010, when estranged wife Tawanna first filed papers. In court documents cited by TMZ, the former Sixers megastar requests the court to chuck Tawanna's divorce petition because he and Tawanna revived their union between November 2011 and February 2012, proving that their marriage is not "irretrievably broken," as Tawanna claimed in 2010.

IT'S BEEN years since Lindsay Lohan was taken seriously as a movie star, but it's also been awhile since she's been taken not-so-seriously as a Tattle star.

Tyra Banks: Next chapter? Me too me too me too! That's Tyra Banks announcing the end of The Tyra Banks Show, her syndicated CW joint, after five years. Last shows will happen in 2010. Could Tyra, 36, not stand Oprah Winfrey getting the eyes for being a prominent black woman TV host calling it quits? Or was Tyra just tyra'd of the show?

It's a trust thing We know it's still early on a Monday, so we'll try to keep this latest addition to the Mel/Oksana marathon simple.

Lindsay Lohan 's Marilyn Monroe -ish Playboy pictorial should not be interpreted as yet another example of how The Man 's phallocentric hegemony crushes innocence. Nor is it a cynical ploy for attention by a star turned tabloid punch line. It's an act of empowerment, baby. "Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature," Lohan, 25, tells the mag. "It's a very male-dominated world . . . so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing.
