Your article proved once again how immature, fickle and pathetic people in Hollywood are. How ironic that the only warm and lasting marriages many actors will ever experience are those they pretend to have on film.

I had to laugh when I read about Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly divorcing. If I recall, Jim wanted Lauren to sign a prenuptial agreement before they were married, and she refused. Now, 10 months after they married, she is filing for divorce. She played in Dumb and Dumber with him? Well, that title sure fits him, and she should star in a new movie—Rich and Richer! What a gold digger.

Wasn't Lauren Holly ordered to pay spousal support to her other ex, Danny Quinn? Maybe Jim could just send the checks to Danny, and Ms. Holly could get on with the business of making bad movies and clever, career-advancing marriages.

I can't believe a pal of Fran Drescher's said, "This is Fran's time. She's thin, she has money, she wants to play." When I took my vows, I promised to love, honor and cherish till death do us part—not until I am rich and famous and look my best.

I'd give anything to have back my dear, sweet husband of 27 years who died last November, and these celebrities treat marriage and relationships as a frivolous game. They make me sick.

I fail to understand why there is so much admiration for Elvis. He was a pretty good singer and a fair actor. He was also a drug addict and a philanderer. Your article showed how he cheated on his wife and his girlfriends with apparently no remorse. Why is such a morally bankrupt man deified this way? Elvis is the King of Nothing.

A man has a bizarre obsession for his mother, a penchant for teenage girls not of legal age and could not have a normal husband-wife relationship with his spouse after she gave birth to his child. He may have been the King of Rock, but today Elvis would have been labeled a sex offender.

How sad that with the opportunity to do a tasteful tribute commemorating the 20th anniversary of the death of one of the most influential and loved people of this century, your editors chose to do a frivolous article about the women he slept with. Your focus should have been on his talent and generosity, not on the last troubled years of his life.

I will always believe that the love of Elvis's life was Priscilla. And, of course, their beautiful daughter.

Ms. Thomas's story is one of great sadness, and there are many more like it. I am a nurse who works with people suffering from the horrible effects of primary pulmonary hypertension. We are seeing a sharp rise in the number of patients admitted with the diagnosis who have a history of taking fen-phen or Redux. Stay away from diet pills. They may cost you your life.

As a patient taking fen-phen for the last 14 months who does meet the criteria outlined by the FDA, I was drawn to your article. As unfortunate as this story is for Ms. Thomas, I wonder why an apparently intelligent woman would take fen-phen without taking time to learn about the risks. Like all medications, it is not for everyone. It is extremely important for prospective patients to research medications, to discuss the risks with their doctors and make informed decisions.
My brother was murdered in 1973 in a crime similar to the one that took SueZann Bosler's father. It's a good thing that she has not allowed hate to take over her life. But I wonder if she realizes all the potential consequences of her actions. If the laws in Florida are anything like the laws in Texas, her father's killer will most definitely not spend the rest of his life in prison.
