Kim Kardashian Auctions Clothes for Charity

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Clothing, Style, Charity

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKim Kardashian is selling her clothes on eBay to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has put a selection of items on the auction site in order to raise money for the non-profit organization International Medical Corps to help victims of the devastating cyclone, which has killed more than 4,000 people in the Philippines this month.

However, instead of donating the entire proceeds, she's only giving 10 per cent of the sales to the charity.

The 33-year-old beauty - who has a reported net worth of $65 million - took to her Twitter page yesterday to share the link to her personal website. "Hi guys, this is a very special auction because a portion of the proceeds of my eBay auction are going to International Medical Corps, a nonprofit organization that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications. The proceeds will go directly to the communities they're serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. Check out my eBay auction here and support those who need our help in the Philippines. Xo. [sic]," she wrote.

Megan Fox on the Jay Leno show

humor

vocal chords in a tantamount, materialistic manner.

Marilyn Monroe Crypt

Richard Poncher’s former crypt is quickly becoming the most famous burial spot in the country…at least, it could well be the most expensive. You see, Poncher was formerly laid to rest just above the grave belonging to . The crypt is located in Beverly Hills at the Westwood Village Memorial Park, specifically in the Corridor of Memories Mausoleum.

Poncher’s widow put the tomb on the market, ostensibly to earn money to pay a $1.6 million mortgage. The housing market being what it is, this was a genius idea. Property values on homes are falling, so just sell off an entirely different type of real estate.

Win a Meeting with Miley Cyrus

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Music, Television

Miley CyrusIn an attempt to raise money for her family’s charity (and probably sound good PR for herself), is auctioning off a “meet and greet” with her at an upcoming red carpet event.

The person who bids the most money for the Pappy Cyrus Family Foundation - an organization that supports underprivileged children - will have the opportunity to join the singer at the November premiere of Bolt, an animated Disney film Cyrus is a part of. The bidding, which began last night and ends July 29, currently stands at just over $2000. (I believe parents paid just about that much for tickets to her last concert tour.)

Other items up for grabs in the eBay auction include clothing actually worn by the star and autographed posters and cds. You can learn more about the fundraiser from Miley in a video clip found after the jump.

James Blunt Is Sweet and Creepy

James BluntI’m sure is a perfectly nice guy, but something about him just creeps me the heck out.

Today on the show, Blunt told an audience for the countless time how he sold his sister to a wealthy man on eBay. Now they are married. 

The story sort of has a legitimate beginning. Blunt, a self-proclaimed eBay addict, says his sister Emily had no way to get to a funeral in Ireland.

The “You’re Beautiful” singer came up with the bright idea of listing her on the popular auction website as a ‘damsel in distress’.  The highest bidder was a man with a helicopter and apparently no qualms about the white slavery aspects of the deal. They hit it off, moved in together and got married about 6 months ago.

Blunt says he hasn’t decided whether to offer up his remaining sister to the highest bidder. Ick.
