Some bros are born lax, some achieve laxness, and others have laxness thrust upon them.

Texas's Billy Munck is the third kind.

When Munck played in only nine varsity games during his junior year of high school, his father took matters into his own hands, suing Billy's coach, as well as the nearby Dallas Lacrosse Academy, under the anti-racketeering RICO Act.

For Jessica Simpson, this weekend's homecoming was a fashionable family affair.

Son Ace Knute, 4 12 months, adorably made his red carpet debut Saturday at a Dillard's store in Dallas during an event celebrating her Jessica Simpson Collection.

Simpson, 33, protectively held on to the chubby-cheeked infant, who looked sweetly stylish in head-to-toe gray, including an unbuttoned shirt with the sleeves rolled up and super-cool baby Jordan sneakers.

Kennedy Memorial Ceremony: Bells, Speeches, Somber Mood in Dallas

In Dallas, somber and thoughtful ceremonies were set for Friday afternoon to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down on Nov. 22, 1963, as his open-air motorcade traveled through the city.

Bells were expected to toll throughout Dealey Plaza, where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald fired upon Kennedy, who was traveling with his wife, Jacqueline, and Texas Gov. John Connally and his wife, Nellie. The death of Kennedy, the nation's youngest president, plunged the word into mourning, and even today he continues to remain a figure of hope and unity.

Historian David McCullough was scheduled to read passages from Kennedy's speeches, including his much-repeated call to service made during his 1961 inaugural address: "Ask not what your country will do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

The years came and went, but Dale Irby's 1970s polyester shirt and coffee-colored sweater vest never got old.

Irby, 63, retired this year as an elementary school teacher in Texas, but not before making quite the career-long fashion statement: He wore the same cheesy outfit in his yearbook photo every year for 40 years.

It started off purely by accident.

More than a deal or two has been made in here.

Businessman Mark Cuban – worth an estimated $2.5 billion – prefers his home office with a basic desk and work chair to a huge conference room with lavish furnishings.

"That's not really my style," Cuban tells PEOPLE. "I want to be comfortable."

Comfort is a multi-tasker's must-have, says Cuban, 54. Along with appearing on ABC's Shark Tank and investing in those start-ups, running his AXS.tv network, directing NBA'S Dallas Mavericks as owner and juggling other investment opportunities, Cuban is also an involved dad to kids Alexis, 9, Alyssa, 6, and Jake, 3 with wife Tiffany, 40.

Dallas: Are You Hooked?

Originally posted 06/14/2012 03:30PM

Dallas is back! And so are scheming brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing. TNT's reboot of the classic primetime soap kicked off with its series premiere Wednesday night, and the backstabbing brothers did not disappoint.

But the new version of the show focuses on their sons, John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson) and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe). These two good-looking cousins pick up right where their feuding fathers left off.

Like his dad, John Ross is ambitious and wants to stick with the family business: oil. But Christopher, who was adopted by Bobby and his first wife Pam, is seeking an alternate energy source in methane mining, which goes in line with the wishes of his late grandmother, Ellie Ewing, who declared in her will that there would be no drilling on the family's iconic ranch, Southfork.

New favorite restaurant?

Ashley Olsen was in Dallas on a business trip to promote her new fashion line – but she still made time for a lunch break with a friend. Olsen stopped into Del Frisco's Grille for a mid-day bite, splitting a few appetizers and then tucking into a wedge salad herself.

Later in the day, sporting sunglasses and a casual summer dress, Olsen was back at Del Frisco's – this time for an early dinner. On the menu? Some chicken tacos and a glass of wine. Says a source of the starlet: "She was really nice."
