It appears the press might be getting a little sick of Dara Torres' old lady swim feats. At least that's the only reason it would seem the Palm Beach Post has decided to interview her embittered ex-husband. West Palm surgeon Itzhak Shasha and Torres were married for 16 months, but then divorced. Soon after, Torres began shacking up with David Hoffman, who's the father of her two-year old daughter, and who was also the fertility doctor treating Dara and Itzhak for, one would assume, their baby-making problems.

Needless to say, asking Itzhak how he feels about all the Dara Torres fever sweeping the country, is not going to result in a positive response.

"Believe me, I've achieved many significant things in my life," he said, "and none of them was being married to her. I don't want to talk about that marriage, and I don't want to talk about her."


Hoffman insists he started dating Torres after she was separated from her first husband, but still...dude. It's bad enough when your ex-wife starts dating anybody, but it has to be especially maddening when she goes off and starts romancing the man who knows all about your personal problems and who's probably scrutinized your semen countless times.
