According to Munkin the news that Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan may wed was even carried by the Chicago Sun-Times.

For the record, Bachchan-the-younger gives me gas (Old Man Amitabh, on the other hand, is a whole 'nother story)....
We do love it though that a bit of extra deli belly is not a federal crime in India.


A link to the extended play version of the story is here.


'Aishwarya may marry Abhishek'
NEW DELHI: Their horoscopes match and a wedding could be on the cards says a Hindu priest in southern India, sparking off media reports that beauty queen Aishwarya Rai and Bollywood's rising star Abhishek Bachchan could be tying the knot soon.

Chandrashekar Swami, a Hindu priest and astrologer in Bangalore, said he had examined the horoscopes of both stars and found they "matched perfectly," the Times of India said in a report yesterday.

A former Miss World, Rai is a superstar in India. She has made more than 30 movies, served on the Cannes Film Festival jury and features in international ad campaigns for leading jewellery, cosmetic and cola companies.

The Rai-Bachchan wedding buzz began when a television channel reported last week that Abhishek's uncle, Ajitabh, had met Swami to seek his views about a Aishwarya-Abhishek match.

    As excited as I am about the upcoming nuptials, I think it is time to institute the funny caption thread for this picture. Here you go:

    "I got chills, they're multiplyin', and I'm losin' control. Cause the power you're supplyin', it's electrifyin'!"

    What about poor Sheryl Crow and that mono-ball prick Lance???

    Think about, jilted by a mono-baller!
    That is bad.

    Everyday Is a Winding, er, something...

    Rocker Sheryl Crow thanks her "kind" friends for their support in her first interview since her split from cycling champion Lance Armstrong.

    The singer has filmed an interview for today's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which also sees her perform emotional song Always On Your Side.

    On the show she says: "You live your life in the public eye, it is really cool that people have been spectacularly kind. You just have to take it one day at a time."

    And the 44-year-old star is already joking about the break-up.

    She quips: "I'm telling you, all my friends say I have to get right back on the bike and I keep saying 'Maybe not a bike.'"
