Straight from Madge herself, word is that her husband whose career she derailed went on something called a cookie diet. Not where you eat cookies all day, but where you eat one meal (dinner) and then are allowed to eat 6 cookies max over the course of the day if you're hungry. Which boils down to 800 calories a day. Oh, and a limp libido.
Madonna said, "My husband went on that cookie diet and it was such a turn-off because he didn't want to have sex. He's not on it anymore, thank god! He did lose weight but he didn't really need to lose that much weight. I think he did it because all his friends were doing it and he wanted to see if he could do it." Well, it's better than when his friends kept telling him he should date that one famous slutty singer. And then you go and get all strange red-string religion on him. You think the cookie diet is weird? Try being married to your stringy looking yoga addicted ass and tell me that you wouldn't try drastic measures to make yourself as far from lucid as possible.
