DUPED: Paparazzi apparently went on a wild goose chase in the Dominican Republic this weekend in an effort to track down rumors that Anna Kournikova, 21, and Enrique Iglesias, 28, tied the knot in a sunset ceremony.

QUOTED: "I'm not a romantic leading man anymore so I don't need to nurture that public image anymore. ...

DECLARED: Paul Newman, 78, will not attend the June 8 Tony awards, though he is nominated as best actor for his role as the narrator of the revival (now closed) of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town." (Similarly, Newman skipped the March 23 Oscars, despite his Supporting Actor nomination for "Road to Perdition.") The veteran star tells Variety that he not only avoids all awards shows these days, but he no longer owns a tuxedo.
REVEALED: The producers of the new reality TV show "Strip Search" are on a cross-country search of Canada to find male contestants willing to take it all off for the TV cameras, say trade reports. Thirteen half-hour episodes of the show, inspired by the 1997 film "The Full Monty," will air on Bravo this fall. Some 20 finalists will attend a boot camp in Toronto, where one will be eliminated each week. The final six will get one-year contracts with Thunder from Down Under, a touring striptease troupe.
