Swimming In ABC's 'Shark Tank'

1/20/2012 1:59pm EST
Shark Tank
ABC's Shark Tank opens tonight at 8 PM ET/PT - and before you step in, get the inside dish plus meet the newest Shark, Lori Greiner!

Now in its third season, Shark Tank brings hopeful entrepreneurs face-to-face with a panel of potential investors, or "sharks," that could make their business aspirations a reality...if they can be convinced. Sometimes, it's a chance for us to watch someone's dream come true. Other times, it's painful to see them crash and burn.

I recently visited the set of Shark Tank to check the waters out for myself, and here are a few things you might not know.

Celebrities Trying To Bring Back The Mustache

2/6/2009 11:51am EST
Robert Downey Jr.
Let's be honest, men's fashion isn't nearly as much fun as women's, especially when it comes to getting all gussied up in formal garb. For men, the pot can pretty much be boiled down to three basic variables: 1. Tie shape 2. To cummerbund or not to cummerbund and 3. Level of fashion bravado. So it is totally understandable for male celebrities to become jaded with the limited realm of prosaic male attire and seek other methods of adding a little snazzle dazzle to their personal senses of style.

Many men dabble in self-expression via varying facial hair patterns - a.k.a. "manscaping." ...
