Just like the Oceanic Six learned on Lost, life off the Island is not what it's cracked up to be. And when destiny beckons, one has no choice but to heed its call.

Madonna's application to adopt Chifundo "Mercy" James, 3, was turned down by a Malawi judge Friday morning in court. The judge cited requirements that adoptive parents reside in the African country for 18 to 24 months.

In a new interview, Todd Palin says the $150,000 spent on clothes and beauty services for his wife, Alaska Governor and vanquished Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign was "out of our control."

As a supermodel, Kathy Ireland was used to seeing pictures of herself retouched to hide her flaws. But a photo of the one-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue staple at home recently took her breath away - and not in a good way.

"I didn't recognize the person I saw," said one of the hottest and most successful cover girls of the '80s and '90s, who went on to become a hugely successful CEO. "I saw someone who looked overstressed, overwhelmed and overweight."

David Letterman and Bill O'Reilly have had some memorable exchanges in the past, and last night's visit by O'Reilly to The Late Show certainly followed suit.

In fact, it took two minutes for Letterman to point-blank call him a goon.
