But You Like Really Dated?

It's the reason we tune into those entertainment news shows and vulture about the supermarket checkout aisles eager to check out the latest tabloid covers. The daze of Hollywood's dating life is like a high school yearbook riddled with the "most likely to succeed" until they crash and burn. Designed like a handy illustrated book of matching paper dolls, the whimsical tome "But You Like Really Dated?!" finally lays it all out in the way that even a toddler could follow. Because, let's face it, this "Celebropedia of Hollywood Hookups" is just going to get highlighted and food stained! Thank God it's a soft cover!

So who has had the most supermodels in the industry? Now it's easy to compare scorecards from Leo to George. And just how many men have fallen into Madonna's harem? Not as many as you might imagine, but still some famous names that might surprise you - if you don't already remember them all. Britney Spears has even had her share of hook-ups, but Taylor Swift may still hold the most colorful record - while all her exes are left seeing red!

Interestingly graphed with bits of trivia to tantalize, and witty commentary to boot, there aren't all that many surprises, especially for the season pop-culture fanatic, but there are still some moments that might surprise you. There is even a section on "Perfect Matches" - given their histories, which of your two favorites would you most want to see get together? For those still lovelorn, but who may pattern their own likes by how celebs live, you'll appreciate the "tiny bits of wisdom."

The 180-page is fun to share with friends and great for a laugh, but you may not want to find your mug within the myriad sections! I'm sure that Brad Pitt is finding no pleasure in following the list of hookups laid in waste next to his fair Angelina. That Jennifer Anniston is looking mighty good now, but, alas, she is now also taken. Thanks to "But You Like Really Dated?!" you'll always be clued in. Don't make that same mistake twice.
