The Beat

WHEN IT comes to George Foreman's offspring, the five boys tend to get most of the attention. After all, they're all named George. But the former fighter--griller also has five daughters (none, thankfully, named after Dad), including Natalie (right), who is an aspiring singer and model. They're all on display in TV Land's new reality show, Family Foreman. "You've heard the stories about George, George, George, George, George," Foreman says, "but I'm actually controlled by the girls in the family." ... Plaxico Burress's new memoir, Giant: The Road to the Super Bowl, doesn't skirt controversy (on rumors that former Steelers teammate Kordell Stewart was gay, Burress writes, "He alienated himself from the team") and delivers some bulletin-board material (the Cowboys' secondary is "not that good"). "I'm a very honest person," Burress says. "I didn't have any problem writing or saying anything that was in the book." ... When David Wright saw his picture on a new line of baseball cards produced by Topps and Team Baby Entertainment, he began having flashbacks. The cards feature big leaguers as tykes. "Seeing that picture from Little League [in Hickory, Va.] reminds me what a dream it was to one day be on a trading card," he said.
