Frain jokes that watching the soccer games is in his contract.

LONDON – Princess Diana’s famous little black dress just sold for a whopping $277,068 to a museum in Chile. The strapless black taffeta gown was worn by Di to her first outing with Prince Charles after they got engaged.

LOS ANGELES – Jennifer Aniston stayed fit on Friends by eating the same exact salad for lunch every day for 10 years. According to former co-star and BFF Courteney Cox, they both ate a Cobb salad daily on set that Aniston “doctored up with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans” to make it extra healthy. The pair never got sick of the salad during the sitcom’s run because it was just that good.

So far, Megan Fox, Eliza Dushku, Sandra Bullock, and Beyonce Knowles have all expressed interest in playing Wonder Woman, but Jennifer Love Hewitt thinks execs should hire her instead.
