Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" sounds kinda creepy when you realize it's about a 4-year-old Caroline Kennedy -- but we reveal the truth behind the seductive lyrics.

And, Rachel Uchitel's baby registry ... Harvey is flabbergasted over a $1,000 stroller, $300 breast pump and a $500 high chair... but parents call BS on Harvey ...

(6:03) Caroline's intro for Neil ... quite "touching."
(7:00) Neil ups the creep factor at the award ceremony.
(8:10)  Epic songwriter Seth Swirsky is on the horn -- can he explain how "Sweet Caroline" isn't as weird as we think?
(24:00) Breaking news! Deion Sanders' daughter RIPS into his soon-to-be ex-wife Pilar ... calling her a "gold-digging ho."
(26:04) Rapper Common says he'll make a prenup decision when the time comes -- we'll tell you why he should make it now.

I've said the same thing about Neil Diamond. I like Neil Diamond I really do, but I think he really should have kept quiet as to who inspired him to compose that song. I've tried so many ways to think of the lyrics as clean, but I can't get pictures of Dateline perverts out my head when I hear the part "Touching me touching you"

Harvey - you're not a song writer. Clearly not a songwriter, so please. Listen to the song writer.

the word touching doesn't have to mean a physical action, it can be a emotion as in "that touched me" " that is touching"

Sweet Caroline: about Jackie and John watching her in the photo, then Jackie longing for John!

In the photo Jackie and John are watching Caroline. It is about them as a couple and the innocence of Caroline and their love!

Everyone should have a pre-nup... Poor people need to protect themselves more than rich people... Someone making 50k is in more danger than someone that makes millions and won't have as big of an impact as someone who makes less.

I would sign a pre-nup as long as there was a stipulation that it becomes null and void if either spouse is caught cheating on the other.

I need to stop watching this crap. They completely manufactured that drama over the Neil Diamond song and it made no sense at all and was pretty rude actually. Now Rachel Ucitel being pregnant is a "big deal" according to Harvey. What???!?!?!?
