LOS ANGELES – Evangeline Lilly Launches Intimate Lingerie Line … To Raise Money For Brazilian Children | Samuel L. Jackson: Sexy Plus Cool Equals Violent | Miss Mexico: From Pageant Princess To The Pokey | Spencer Pratt’s Fight Victim Biting Back With Reality Show | Pop Tarts Sightings
Sounds like the consummate combination … Evangeline Lilly, lingerie and a little lenity too.
The Lost beauty has teamed up with Ebay Giving Works and leading auction management group Auction Cause to barter off intimate goodies (from her personally inspired collection of Brazilian made R*Favela Lingerie) just in time for Valentines Day.
Lily’s hand-picked collection includes over 2,000 pieces of panties and bras in an assortment of cuts, colors and styles to suit every woman’s dreams and desires. But here’s the good news - 10 percent of the proceeds will go to Task Brasil which works to provide a loving and supportive home environment for street children and adolescents in the South American country.
"I’m offering beautiful Brazilian-made lingerie as a fun and enticing way for you too not only invest in yourself, but in the poor and abandoned children of Brazil," Lilly said.
Shaft star Samuel L. Jackson knows a thing or two about how to be cool, but you might be surprised at what other characteristics he would use to describe himself.
"I’d say I’m violent because when you put sexy and cool together, you get violent," he told Tarts at the video game launch of "Afro Samurai" for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION®3 at Hollywood’s Geisha House on Tuesday night.
Disgraced beauty queen Laura Zuniga was officially stripped of her sash this week after spending 40 days behind bars for trafficking drugs and illegal weapons into her homeland.
According to government officials, the 23-year-old and her boyfriend were picked up at a military checkpoint in December with seven armed and suspected gang members carrying $100,000 in cash and multiple weapons.
Zuniga was crowned Miss Sinaloa in July, went on to win the Queen of Hispanic America contest in November and was set to compete for the title of Miss International in 2010.
Just a couple of weeks ago fists flew at West Hollywood hotspot Coco DeVille between Spencer Pratt and his sister Stephanie’s ex beau Cameron Huston . After ten minutes amid a war of words, Pratt reportedly popped a punch that put Huston (who recently dumped Steph) in the local hospital. Huston is now apparently in legal talks to sue MTV for provoking the very public bust-up.
But according to inside sources, the disagreement wasn’t to do with Cameron’s treatment of Stephanie but had more to do with the budding romance between Huston and musician Caleigh Peters. Miss Peters apparently dumped long-term boyfriend Sean Stewart (son of Rod) to be with Huston, and as Pratt and Stewart are close friends the hot-headed "Hills" star was only looking out for his pal.
Goodness - the drama. But Pop Tarts have also been told that Huston and Peters are cashing in on their fifteen minutes of fame and now have their own reality show in the works to rival that of Pratt and "wife" Heidi Montag.
