NEW YORK – Heidi Klum may be the face, body and voice of "Victoria’s Secret," but when it comes to baring her body in her own home, the stunning supermodel has no desire to keep anything secret from her family.
"To see me in wings is nothing too unusual. People are pretty open with their bodies in Germany, and the children see you naked or in lingerie all the time so it’s not a big deal for us," Klum told Tarts on Tuesday at the opening of the ultra-luxe flagship Lexington Avenue VS Store in New York. "We don’t hide inside a room somewhere and change — it’s all very out in the open."
But in order to have that kind of confidence, Klum works hard and she has her hubby, Seal, to credit for her flawless figure.
"You have to work out to be sexy. People always ask me how I stay in shape and how do I do it, and what really makes me do it is because I have a hot man waiting at home for me," she added. "So I don’t want to be a slouch bag; I have to keep up appearances."
(But just FYI, we do hear that Miss Heidi frequents Exhale Spa’s evolutionary Core Fusion classes to keep up that bangin’ bod).
And although Heidi insisted that Seal can do no wrong in her eyes, there is one thing that totally turns her off men. …
"If a man talks about themselves too much — they should be talking about the world, children, but not talking about themselves," she said.
Speaking of male attention, the newest Angel, Doutzen Kroes, appears to be pretty smitten with her sudden surge in interest.
"I am getting picked up all the time, and it is really weird. I don’t know how to deal with it," the 23-year-old exclaimed. "I am really happy that I am in a loving relationship right now, and I am not looking for anything. But I am enjoying the attention, although the paparazzi is all new for me and it’s really crazy. I think it’s all for the other girls — nobody knows me, but they will soon. I feel really honored and blessed."
Well if you really want to get to know Miss Kroes in quite the intimate way (plus 29 other leggy lingerie ladies) check out the annual Victoria's Secret Runway Show Wednesday at 10 EST on CBS.
Angelina Jolie Says Maddox Made Her Believe in Fate
Angelina Jolie was never one to believe that everything in life happens for a reason, but after meeting her first adopted son, Maddox, she had a serious change of heart.
"I never believed in any kind of fate but when I met my son Maddox I just remember going to his country and when I left, I felt like I had left something behind," Jolie told reporters while promoting her new film "The Changeling."
"So I went back and I knew my kid was there, it was the strangest feeling. Then I woke up one morning and knew they were going to introduce me to my son — I saw Mad and knew I was his mother. I can't explain it, I don't know why it was him or that country but it was absolutely meant to be."
Angelina and her beau, Brad Pitt, are already handling a family of six children and just a few months after welcoming twins into the world, the star-studded couple is making room for more.
"We are going to have more kids," she said. "One way or another."
Exclusive: David Cook Shoots Promo of His Journey to Success
It is hard to believe that this time last year nobody even knew David Cook, but fast-forward less than a year after his big win and the reigning king of American Idol has had his journey re-filmed for a commercial to promote the upcoming season.
"I think it will be nice to step back and actually watch the last year of my life within a thirty second you know montage," David told Tarts exclusively at our recent visit to the downtown set of the promo production.
But just because Cook is in the big leagues now doesn’t mean that’s he is well, totally comfortable.
"I freak out on a daily basis for many good reasons, but I think I'm in a very blessed position in my life right now," he said, adding that he recently attended fellow "American Idol" Carrie Underwood’s live concert which featured video of Underwood and runner-up Bo Bice standing beside Ryan Seacrest awaiting the big announcement.
"I freaked out for a second, it was so real and we were in the Nokia and everything," Cook said. "I had to remember it wasn’t me."
Simpson/Wentz to Sin in the New Year
Just because they’re brand new parents doesn’t mean Ashlee Simpson and hubby Pete Wentz will be spending it with their new addition, Bronx Mowgli.
Tarts has confirmed that the music moguls will be hosting the typically wild bender at Las Vegas’ No. 1 nightclub PURE (last year Pamela Anderson hosted and the year before, it was Britney Spears) and with advance tickets starting at $200 per party person, we’re assuming they’ll boost the bank balance quite comfortably as they ring in 2009.
Mario Lopez Is a Tiara Traitor?
Mario Lopez has just been confirmed for the second year in a row as the honorable host of the Miss America Pageant, but is it a move that will have him "fired" from his long-time association with Mr. Donald Trump's rival pageant group the Miss Universe Organization?
Lopez has been hosting the NBC/Trump-owned pageants (which include Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA) since 1998 but at this stage, his future with them remains unclear as hosts for 2009 have not been officially announced.
Calls to the Miss Universe Organization and a rep for Lopez were not returned.
