Simon Cowell's Viagra Insult

From the NY Post:

A highly offended Simon Cowell says he turned down $2 million to become the British spokesman for Viagra.

"Last year my agent rang me and said, 'You've been offered an incredibly big million-pound deal. It's to be the face of Viagra,' " Cowell told the British edition of Glamour magazine.

"And I just said, 'Sorry, but that has to be a f - - - - - - insult.' "

While vanity may have cost him the lucrative ad deal, it didn't stop the 48-year-old TV star from admitting that he wears platform shoes to make him appear taller and that he has used Botox.

Meanwhile, Cowell's longtime girlfriend, "Extra" correspondent Terri Seymour, shouldn't be expecting an engagement ring - ever:

The music mogul said his partner of five years was "great" but admitted the concept of marriage in the entertainment industry was a scary and unrealistic one.

"I don't believe in marriage, certainly not in this business," the 48-year-old told the Mirror.

"The truth is that you get married and in a year or two they clean you out! It's just not going to work.

"I know a lot of people going through divorces now and once the lawyers get involved it starts to get nasty."
