Madonna's brother plugs tell-all: Christopher Ciccone, the little brother of Madonna, talked with Good Morning America about his new book My Life with Madonna. The 47-year-old answered questions about the alleged affair between his sister and Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez ("I doubt they had an affair. It seems absurd to me"), sibling rivalry ("Madonna became the focus of attention. And that attention turned into a kind of ego"), and his beef with hubby Guy Ritchie, who he claims came between him and Madge ("He treats me as if I am an employee and not his brother-in-law"). The book was released on Monday. 

Family wins lawsuit over urine-tainted food: After eating urine and spit-stained food at KFC/Taco Bell, a police officer and his family won $40,000 in their lawsuit against the restaurant chain in Sydney, Nebraska. Officer Keith Andrew's two sons, then 4 and 7, became ill after eating at the establishment in October 2005. The youngest son had gastroenteritis and dehydration, vomited for hours and was eventually hospitalized. Restaurant staff saw an employee soil the family's food and reported it to management, but no one informed the family. The man pleaded guilty last year to violating the Nebraska Pure Food Act, fined $100, and was eventually fired.

U.K. father called "pervert" for photographing his kids: While enjoying a day in the park, Gary Crutchley 39, snapped photos of his two kids, ages 7 and 5, before being called a "pervert" by onlookers who demanded he put away his camera. The backlash was so strong that Crutchley asked two police officers to confirm he hadn't done anything wrong. "What is the world coming to when anybody seen with a camera is assumed to be doing things that they should not?" said Crutchely to the Daily Mail. "This parental paranoia is getting completely out of hand. I was so shocked."

While Madonna’s brother’s book excerpts seem interesting, it’s still rather sad to see an adult define their life by “knowing” someone else. (RE: book title: “My Life with Madonna.”
