We’ve always found Anne Hathway to be generally tame and dull, but it appears her latest venture into the world of felon dating – and dumping – has left her feeling a little spunky. The actress spontaneously took to the stage Sunday night at the Cracked X-Mas charity event in L.A. (money raised went to the Trevor Project, a “crisis suicide prevention line for LGBT youth”) and pimped herself to the audience. “I will take you and a friend somewhere fabulous and basically get you totally sh*t faced,” she giggled, until she got someone to donate $12,000 for the honor. Come to think of it, maybe her spunkiness was fueled by champagne and not confidence. Either way, it’s adorable. Clip above. [E! Online]
Rachel Zoe is notorious for constantly uttering “I die” on her Bravo reality show, and we’re now realizing this was not an exclamation of couture lust, but an actual update on the grim state of her health. Rachel rocked the starving look at last night’s Cracked X-Mas event in Los Angeles. We’re shocked her bones didn’t crack under the weight of the camera flashes. All it’s gonne take to shatter her collar bone is someone sneezing 1000 miles away. That girl better start adding some half and half to her lattes before even the Mary-Kate Olsens of the world get grossed out by her famished look. We know Rachel doesn’t quite get this, but most people “die” for ladies with a bit of meat on their bones.
Madonna does moving on like none of us have ever seen before. New tour! New man! New image! And now a new ad campaign for Louis Vuitton demonstrates once again just how unlike your average 50 year old the Material Girl really is. If we were to analyze the look on her face, it would be: “My leg is at a 90 degree angle to the rest of me, and yet I have barely noticed it and have not even thought about breaking a sweat. I feel no pain. Now bow down before me, mother*ckers!” Or something along those lines. But we think we’re spot on. [Photo: Louis Vuitton]
Victoria’s Secret opened a new flagship store in NY yesterday, only to reel in horror as Heidi Klum and a gaggle of models crashed the party, posing up a storm in form-fitting dresses. Gasp! While the women failed to doff their clothes and parade the latest in lingerie, ever damn one looked outstanding. Take a look at the gallery to see whose legs were on display.

Former New York Ranger Sean Avery (currently with the Dallas Stars) has been booted indefinitely from the NHL after he made insulting and derogatory comments about his two famous ex-girlfriends, actress Elisha Cuthbert and model Rachel Hunter. Cuthbert is now dating Calgary Flames player Dion Phaneuf (Hunter is currently shacking up with a player on the L.A. Kings), and Avery decided to bash Phaneuf in his home rink, while warming up on the ice before the Stars battled the Flames. “I’m really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada,” Avery sneered. “I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about. Enjoy the game tonight.”
Avery, who interned at Vogue this summer, has an established reputation as a trouble-maker (in one game last year he waved his hands in a goalie’s face to distract him in a game, and he’s been linked to notorious madame Kristin Davis) and the NHL jumped on the chance to punish him. We imagine his sloppy seconds are thrilled with the outcome. [Photo: WireImage]
Victoria Beckham is sick and tired of being perceived as some kind of attention-seeker. “We lead our lives in a much more low-profile way than people think,” says Posh. I’m not going to The Ivy. I don’t think I’ve been to a premiere since we moved there. We’re not courting fame.”
Of course she’s not. Why would anyone assume that a woman who has starred in five reality programs is “courting fame”? Maybe she thinks she’s low-profile because she has “a list of numerous restaurants that have underground parking so no one can get any photographs,” but anyone who wrote their autobiography before the age of 30 is “courting fame.” Anyone who has a prime-time special about her arrival in America titled Victoria Beckham: Coming To America is “courting fame.” Quotes like this just mean more flying paparazzi monkeys outside her door. Not that she’d have it any other way.
Check out the gallery for some examples of Posh avoiding the limelight this year.
(Alana Love started working last week at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel in Nevada. She is single, 20 years old and seven months pregnant. She told her story on the Howard Stern show this morning and will share her thoughts and experiences with Scandalist readers in this diary. Check back weekly for updates.)
Tuesday, Nov. 25
Today was my first day at the ranch. I’ve always wanted to do this and when my baby comes, I think I will be able to give her a better life. I was really excited to start today. I know some people will be critical of my choice, but it’s my life. I am an adult. I’m not doing anything to harm my baby — and it’s legal.
Scandalist has noticed a disturbing trend plaguing Hollywood these days: older celebrity ladies in the prime of their lives dressing like they’re on their way to a Jonas Brothers concert. This fashion illness – known as going teenile – befalls famous middle-aged woman. Symptoms manifest themselves by the presence of tight denim, belly shirts, frilly lace, and lots and lots of skin.
We’ve pored over pics to bring you our 9 favorite teeniles tromping down Robertson Boulevard these days. Marvel at the phenomenally fifteen-year-old fashion stylings of Mariah Carey, Linda Hogan, Shauna Sand, Teri Hatcher and other hotties hiding their wrinkles behind mini-skirts, below.

Remember that hottie who stared in Kanye West‘s “Flashing Lights” video? Here’s a reminder. Apparently Kanye handpicked the model, 19-year-old Philly native Sessilee Lopez, for his vid, and the two have been tight ever since. A source told The Sun that the two have been spending some intimate one-on-one time together, as well as hitting the town and partying. “Kanye was instantly smitten with Sessilee and it’s not hard to see why. She’s hot!” The over-eager anonymous pal gushed. “But it’s not just her looks that attracted Kanye – they get along really well and have a definite connection.”
We’ll have to wait and see if this relationship pans out into actual love – after all, he’s twelve years her senior. But we’ve already spotted one thing that could signal a match made in heaven – Sessilee has her own blog. [Photos: GettyImages. WireImage]
