Heidi Klum Ready to Release Racy New 'Coffee Table' Book & The First 'Non-Naked' Barbie | 'Real Housewife' Ramona Singer Has Temper Tantrum During Tennis Tournament | Fast Five With Kirsten Bell: Power Bars, Guiltiest Pleasure & Having Juice In Her Caboose
Heidi Klum is already regarded as one of the hottest women in the world thanks to the many years she has spent legging it in her lingerie as a VS Angel, but the supermodel’s status is about to get a whole lot steamier thanks to a sexy new coffee table tome “Rankin’s Heidilicious” which is due out in October from publisher teNeues.
“It’s very naughty, I’ve been shooting with this photographer, Rankin, for seven years and working with him is fun because he always makes me look different,” Klum told the September issue of Los Angeles Confidential Magazine , which hits the stands on Friday.
“He always gets me to take my clothes off for some reason. We’ll do some job and then he’ll say, ‘Why don’t we shoot some more things?’ and I’ll wind up without anything on.”
Hmmm, does that mean Klum is going to be nude on your coffee table? If the cover is anything to go by (Klum appears clothing-free with just a pair of socks) it is certainly going to be a head-turner. Stay tuned.
But despite being busy with the book, her own beauty line, a new show “Models of the Runway’ on Lifetime, Season Eight of “Project Runway” - oh, and being eight months pregnant - the 36-year-old stunner is committed to making sure her upcoming Barbie Doll look just as cute in her underwear as she does.
“It’s part of Mattel’s Blonde Ambition series. The first one is Marilyn Monroe, the second is Goldie Hawn and the third is me! They said, “We want you to be part of this.” And I thought, Wow! Growing up with Barbie, it’s a dream to get my own,” Klum added. “I got to go to Mattel and look through the heads and hair and outfits. I wanted it to be my daughter’s favorite, so I’m wearing the glitziest pink mini dress in the world. And it always bothered me that Barbie was naked, so mine has on this cute pink bra and panties.”
It is just as well that Ramona Singer isn’t famous for being an actress, because the “Real Housewives of New York” starlet apparently couldn’t hide her emotions while attending the Grand Slam Tennis Winners & Celeb Tennis Exhibition at the Ross School in East Hampton on the weekend.
“Ramona started flipping out in front of all the guests because she didn’t think she was going to play any more,” said our snitch. “She was freaking out that her co-star was on the court, when she was clearly the ‘tennis player’ out of them all on the show.”
We’re told poor ol’ Singer then started sulking and hitting serves by herself on the court next to Luann’s match and thus the Ross School offered her to play with two pros.
“But she didn’t think there was any point because she wasn’t the center of attention with no ball boys, umpire or cameras around,” added our insider.
And despite her oh-so-classy career, it seems Countess Luann should partake in a piece of her own etiquette advice as she was spotted snapping her fingers in the face of the Ross School staffer who was graciously helping her find her seat.
