Michael J. Fox reveals marriage secret

Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan have revealed the secret to their happy marriage – they record TV shows.

The couple, who have been married for 22 years, avoid unnecessary arguments over their clashing tastes in TV programmes by having two individual recording devices which save their favourite shows.

Michael and Tracy, who have four children together, said each family member has a different series they love.

“We have separate Tivos,” Tracy said. “We have very different interests in television.”

“I’ll watch bizarre shows like hoarding shows. Storage Wars, Swamp Men – all that trash,” Michael added to the American edition of OK! magazine.

A Tivo is a digital video recorder that allows users to automatically record their favourite programmes and to find new shows that match their interests.

Tracy, who met the Back To The Future star on the set of Family Ties in the 1980s, added she enjoys watching Glee with their children.

But despite their wildly different tastes, there is one show that the whole Fox clan enjoys together.

“American Idol,” said Michael, “we’ll watch that as a family.”

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
