DIVORCE, REALITY-STYLE. If at first you don't succeed at marriage, try, try again on an upcoming Fox reality show under the working title "Love Again."
Divorced men and women ages 21 to 45 - and there's a nice thought, being divorced at 21 - can gather tomorrow and Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Manhattan's Hudson Hotel (356 W. 58th St.) or go there Saturday afternoon by appointment. Call 323-816-8477 and ask for Alan. We don't know the secret handshake.
And Fox continues its pursuit of fine family programming with "Temptation Island 3,"
premiering Aug. 28. Four couples, including one from Long Island, hit a resort on Honduras' Bay Islands, where they will be tempted by 28 "10s" - well, maybe with some "8s" and "9s" thrown in. We're sure the couples are saying, "We're doing it for the free vacation; nothing's going to happen."
The local couple are Michael, a "bartender-model," and Melissa, a "promoter-model" and former Miss New York. Although Fox hasn't said, that would be Miss New York USA 1999 Melissa Huggins of Patchogue. There was a Melissa Lopez who was Miss Long Island in the Miss New York State 2003 competition - a different pageant - who didn't win.
