Kim 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.
An unknown home-cameraman has decided to share a fifty-year old video of someone who very much appears to be late actress Marilyn Monroe. In the short film, she takes a few hits off what very much appears to be a joint (you know, marijuana). The video purports to have been shot in 1958 or 59.
Keya Morgan, a New York area collector, has purchased the film (for the bargain price of $275K). He’ll be selling it on eBay this week. The story first broke in the Huffington Post.

Although Megan Fox may want to kill him sometimes, she definitely makes up for her crazy
vocal chords in a tantamount, materialistic manner.
Appearing on The Jay Leno Show, the sexy starlet revealed that she recently purchased a 1966 Mustang Fastback (picture after the jump) for her sometimes boyfriend Brian Austin Green.
To top it all off, Fox bought the car on eBay, further proving that celebrities are just like us. Okay, well, except for the fact that she’s paying to get it nicely restored right now.

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 Marilyn Monroe. 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.

Limited edition Star Wars action figures. The Princess Diana beanie baby. Every so often, there comes along a must-have toy that’s made for those who remain kids at heart. But they’re not called toys - they’re called collector’s items, and that makes obsession okay. For those who love the idea of the ungettable, Christmas just came early. Believe it or not, the minds behind Cabbage Patch Kids actually found a way to make John McCain look cuddly.
Four new dolls have recently been unveiled by the famous toy line, one-of-a-kind creations that some collectors would stoop to almost any means just to own. Your favorite candidate may not win the upcoming election…but they could score a spot in your curio cabinet.
That’s right: there’s a Sarah Palin Cabbage Patch Kid doll. She’s wearing a red power suit, fashionable glasses and a big smile. Her arms seem spread open, almost as if to offer a hug. It’s every bit as adorable as buyers might want it to be.

In an attempt to raise money for her family’s charity (and probably sound good PR for herself), Miley Cyrus 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.

If you often envision your babies wearing something seen in Us Magazine, this upcoming auction might be right up your alley.
Next week, eBay will feature hand-me-down items from a list of Hollywood celebrities. The gently-used pieces (at least, I hope they’re gently-used) are being donated in hopes of raising money for several children’s charities. Organizations benefitting from the proceeds will include the March of Dimes and Save the Children.
Come April 29, interested parties can bid on one of Matt Damon‘s former messenger-style baby bags, a high chair of Julianne Moore’s and an Adidas track suit worn by Mariska Hargitay’s son. Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Jeri Ryan are several of the other stars contributing to the cause.
Those wanting to participate can find more information here.

I’m sure James Blunt is a perfectly nice guy, but something about him just creeps me the heck out.
Today on the Ellen 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.
