We all know the famous new-mom haircut. When I had a newborn, I got one myself: a short, low-maintenance pixie cut that allowed me to reduce my preening time and increase my diaper-changing time. I even went one step further than a simple cut and sacrificed my blonde locks for my natural brunette base, thus saving money and time in a colorist's chair.

Never mind that he has been gone for weeks at a time himself, not seeing his kids while he shacks up with a morphing string of girlfriends.
First David Letterman, John Edwards and Tiger Woods. Then Jesse James. And now ex-Giant Tiki Barber is reportedly having an affair with his kid's babysitter -- while his wife is pregnant with twins! What's going on?
