QUOTED: "Put it down in PEOPLE magazine, I'm looking. I need somebody who is a widower, not somebody who's married, somebody who is good at cooking, and who can have pleasure for things like this." -- Dr. Ruth Westheimer, 75, at last weekend's Artists & Writers Softball Game in East Hampton, N.Y., to PEOPLE


POSTPONED: The Rolling Stones canceled a concert Wednesday in Amsterdam after frontman Mick Jagger, 60, came down with a sore throat, reports Reuters. The show's organizer, Mojo, said the concert likely would be rescheduled for Sept. 22. Earlier this month the Stones canceled a gig in Spain owing to Jagger's laryngitis. They said they'd reschedule that show for Sept. 19.

CONFIRMED: After earlier reports that something was missing, Latin crooner Enrique Iglesias, 28, has admitted to TV's "Access Hollywood" that his trademark mole was indeed removed, after a doctor recently told him it could lead to cancer. He wasn't looking to lose it but didn't have an emotional attachment to it, especially after the doctor's news, he said. The procedure reportedly took about 5 minutes.
