Here are a few things in news, entertainment and popular culture that we've been talking about lately.

• Las Vegas takes the No. 2 spot in a Men's Health survey of cities where relationships are "most doomed for divorce." Why do they say that like it's a bad thing?

• Ex-"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul signs on to be a judge on CBS' new "Got to Dance." Although, seeing as how it's Paula, she could have been signing Army enlistment papers for all she knows.

• The Miss Universe pageant comes to Mandalay Bay in August. We'll start taking Miss Universe seriously when it changes its name to something more accurate. (And don't even get us started on the World Series.)
