Being Mike Tyson, TV review: This is therapy TV - and not a bad PR job, either

Being Mike Tyson continued on Fox last night. This is a fly-on-the-wall look at Tyson's current life as a bad man trying to Break Good. Tyson spent much of these 22 minutes self-flagellating. "If I was my son, I wouldn't be friends with me. I wouldn't talk to me," he said, droopily, at one point over footage of all his children joining him for bowling. It's therapy TV. And not a bad PR job, either.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld: Provocative dressing, baby blogs - and why this model will never change her mind

I was shot by Mario Testino when I was 10 As a kid I was always posing for photos; even on holiday my mum [Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris] would take as many photo-posing moments as she could. We were trained in posing – and I hated it. But maybe that's why I can have fun when posing as a model now; I don't over-analyse or try too hard.
