It's A Walkoff!

We're just crawling in from the Paper Nightlife Awards, and hands-down the best moment was this: When Perez Hilton tried to introduce Coco Rocha and Behati Prinsloo onto the stage, but he couldn't say her name.

"I'm not even going to try," sighed Perez before turning to Coco. "Who is she? Where is she from?"Perez was psyched when Behati said she was from Namibia ("Really? Are you serious? That's so hot!") but the real action came when he realized two of our favorite faces were standing blankly on stage."I think you need to have a walk-off," he announced. "Can you do a little walk? Just for me?"The audience went crazy.

The girls went into supermodel mode. And then Perez said, "Okay great, now kiss!"It didn't happen, but that didn't stop Erin Fetherston from almost falling out of her chair from laughter.

Angels To Act On TV

Could Adriana Lima turn out to be the mother of Ted Moseby's future children?

CBS has found a way to flog the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and reward the cast of "How I Met Your Mother" at the same time. The network announced Monday (Oct. 29) that a sextet of Victoria's Secret models will be guest starring on the Nov. 26 episode of "How I Met Your Mother."

Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Marisa Miller and Selita Ebanks will give the Monday night comedy a little end-of-sweeps sex appeal, while also helping CBS flog the Tuesday, Dec. 4 telecast of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, an event that has fallen on ratings hard times in recent installments.

If you don't wanna know how those comely ladies fit in with the regular "HIMYM" cast, stop reading now....

In the episode, Barney is worried he might be losing his mojo until he finagles an invite to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after-party. Hilarity ensues. The episode will shoot later this week

Yet More Miranda/Orlando Rumours

In addition to his ­recent fling with Jessica Simpson, 27, the Pirates of the Caribbean hunk, 30, is on a fast-track romance with model Miranda Kerr, 24.

“They’ve been friends for a long time,” a source tells Us Weekly. “But they only decided to give it a go a few weeks back.”
On ­October 18, Bloom turned out to support the Aussie stunner at the Victoria’s Secret Phi Beta Pink party in Beverly Hills.

An insider tells Us the couple took an amorous jaunt to East Hampton, New York, on October 4 and 5.
While at dinner at the 1770 House, they held hands and sipped wine. Gushes the source, “Miranda’s very into him!”


Rosie & Tyrone Update

Not really that exciting, but this article from UK Newspaper 'The Independent' briefly mentions Rosie Huntington-Whiteley....

Ronnie Wood's snorts'n'all autobiography – a sort of 60-year-old rocker version of Adrian Mole – has mercifully passed the litmus test with his family.

His son Tyrone, 24, has just reached the back cover and the tome receives his benediction, although, as he admits: "I think I have probably heard most of Dad's anecdotes in there a hundred times now." Big brother Jesse, 29, is a quarter of the way through the memoir.

Tyrone dates the 20-year-old Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and shares his old man's passion for art. He runs Scream, the Wood family's Mayfair gallery, and has grand designs on an American showroom.

He tells me: "I'm off to New York next week to speak to a few people about opening a place out there. I'm hopeful."

Rosie lives in New York and so the trip will allow Ty to spend more time with her. Which will be nice for him.

In a recent interview Rosie had this to say on her relationship with Ty; "I think it's serious. There's a healthy future ahead of us. We've both experienced so much in our early years that we're not mentally the age we are. I'm not too fazed by anything and neither is he."

She plans to spend more time in the UK and is currently staying with the Woods until she finds her own place, she's getting on well with Ronnie and Jo. "The whole of Ty's family are really nice" she says. 'Leah's wicked and so's her fiancé Jack, and Ty's half-brothers Jamie and Jesse. It's great to be able to be relaxed around your boyfriend's family."

And Rosie on meeting Ty at the Rolling Stones concert at Barcelona? "We went out and got talking, I don't really know what happened," she mumbled "It was like, ah, you know, and I was like, he's kind of cute, I guess...."

Sounds unpromsing but these guys are definetley smitten and one of the hottest couples in London right now....we LOVE them!

Bar Following in Gisele's Romance Footsteps

Leonardo DiCaprio is looking for a new model - he’s split with his post-Gisele Bundchen babe, Bar Refaeli.

On Friday night at Sweet Paradise on Orchard Street, DiCaprio was with Josh Hartnett checking out the arm candy at the after-party for the new skateboarding film “Nothing But the Truth.” And, in an odd twist, Refaeli’s new squeeze is surfer Kelly Slater, who dated Bundchen after she and the “Titanic” star broke up.

Slater got into some trouble over the weekend in Israel when he and Refaeli exited a hotel in the Tel Aviv suburb of Herzliya before dawn to find photographers waiting for them. He was arrested after fighting with local paparazzi.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The AP that in an effort to prevent the cameramen from taking pictures, Slater pushed them. A brawl broke out, and Slater was taken in for questioning and later released, Rosenfeld said.

Cuckoo For Coco

Friday afternoon in Harlem was like a trip to Ireland with the arrival of the Eire Born dancers from Vancouver. Coco Rocha brought her childhood dance troupe to New York City for an afternoon of dancing to benefit the Children's Aid Society. "It's something fun and different for them," Rocha explained. "It wasn't a huge crowd, but these are kids who are interested in dance. It was all a matter of how can we bring this dance to the Children's Aid Society? This is what I know and care about. I can't say I have experienced cancer, and I just don't want people to think I'm fake. I wanted to do this so they can see that there's more out there and it really can be someone's life support and you don't have to do a typical job. And it's also just an hour of nothing but fun for them. The girls are just so excited to see it."

Though the children weren't completely familiar with Coco, the model captivated them as she does the fashion industry: they proceeded to scream her name immediately after they were introduced. A dancer since the age of five, the model spent the afternoon learning the steps to an hour long performance just to bring entertainment to the children. And afterwards, the dancers brought the kids to the stage, teaching them a few steps, which the kids quickly interpreted with their own forms of dance.

"It makes it easy to be on the runway," Rocha explained of her transition from dancing to modeling. "It's all about putting on an attitude. I had to learn to perform in the sense that it's just playing around up there. Photographers can tell who was a dancer and who wasn't. Walking is just so 'plain Jane.' I put on the runway attitude, but shows like John Galliano's, where you can sit on someone's lap if you like, are just so fun."

As far as Irish dancing costumes are concerned, Rocha laughed. "It's not à la mode, but it's tradition and that's really what Irish dancing is about. You can say they're tacky, but it's the tradition of years ago when this was a form of entertainment. People would just get up and dance."

Gisele Hangs Out In Miami

Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen has been spotted this week in Miami taking time off to enjoy some quality time with boyfriend Tom Brady chilling out on the beach, swimming and eating lunch - enjoy!

VS Phi Beta PINK Party

You know the opening scene from Legally Blonde that makes you wish you were in a sorority? That’s exactly what this white and hot-pink mansion looks like. Except instead of college students, the honorary chair is Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr, and she’s invited Hollywood’s trendiest partygoers to her Beverly Hills sorority house. Welcome to Victoria's Secret's Phi Beta Pink Social.

When I enter the mansion (adorned with large Grecian columns), I’m handed a plastic cup. This will allow me access to the keg and the beer-pong table out back, where guests like model Lydia Hearst are already playing with hot-pink Ping-Pong balls. Of course, if I lose my cup I can always channel my E! cohort Ben Lyons and start funneling or doing keg-stands. But after all my frat parties in college, I think I’m over that scene.

I prefer to partake in the other activities available: roasting marshmallows in minibonfires, chowing down on burgers fresh off the grill, playing pool on a hot-pink table and personalizing hoodies—one of the night's most popular doings. I told you this wasn't your normal kegger—especially since many of the guests, like Danity Kane’s Aubrey O'Day and newly Afroed Rumer Willis, never made it through college.

“I never really got a college experience,” Lauren "L.C." Conrad tells me. “I’ve gone to frat parties with my guy friends, but nobody’s throwing up here, so it’s a lot better.” Audrina Patridge agrees, adding she loves the pink theme (what girl wouldn’t?). She lets slip that another Malibu beach party is coming up on the next episode of The Hills—and then takes off to get her drink on.

Meanwhile, David Hasselhoff stampedes through the party with actress Lori Kelly, frantically searches for a water bottle at the bar and then takes off in a whirlwind. The Hoff is sure in a hurry, but at least he’s drinking water! Much calmer is Matthew Perry. But apparently he isn't in the best of moods. I try to talk to one of the only college graduates at the party about how the scene compares to his Canadian academic years, but he’d rather stay low-key. “Can I say no?” he asks me, trying to avoid any questions. I reluctantly nod my head. “Then no.” F for Politeness 101!

Lacey Chabert is much happier to share her memories. “I learned about body glitter when I was 13,” she tells me as we check out Pink apparel in the garage out front. “I still love it!” She’s decided to cover up tonight, but the Mean Girls star still sparkles as she rummages through the sweats, tees and hoodies in the gifting lounge. But nobody shines brighter than model Alessandra Ambrosio, who steals fellow Angel Miranda’s spotlight the minute she flies inside in her belted, white shirt-dress to take pictures with Paris Hilton and other guests. If this were truly a sorority, I’d want her as my big sister.

Too bad this isn't a university reality. If schools had models and socialites that looked like this running around campus, every kid in America would probably be in college.

A New Role For Gisele

Although Gisele Bundchen left her famous position at Victoria's Secret earlier this year she has apparently landed herself a very different role, this time as....a fairy!

Gisele has done many things in her time; including acting in the movie Taxi, taking part in a commercial for Apple Mac and shooting an ad for the american express red card....and according to brazilian gossip blog Glamurama Gisele has now begun working for Disney, following in the footsteps of David Beckham, Beyoncé and Scarlett Johansson.

It is reported that Gisele plays the role of Wendy in the studios latest campaign, featuring Wendy and Peter Pan plus the history of Never Never Land. Peter is played by dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and the campaign is shot by Annie Leibowitz.

Traffic Stopper!

Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio stopped traffic in Miami on Friday - literally. The leggy Brazilian was crossing Collins Avenue en route to Atrium boutique against the light when a fleet of cars filled with men slowed to stop, ultimately clearing a path for Ambrosio. Says one witness, ''I've never seen anything like it.'' Once inside the store, she bought two hats, an Emamo bikini and a pair of Rock & Republic shorts.

Alessandra Sighting

Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was at Skybar's Redroom, Miami, on Thursday (11 October) night. According to spies, ''She danced up a storm and took pictures with everyone.'' The stunner was sporting a white tank top and shorts with her hair thrown up in a ponytail. Service was understandably spotty that night. ''The staff were gaga over her,'' says our spy. ''I heard one guy bragging to a friend that she actually spoke to him.''

VSFS 2007 Update

Well, Victoria's Secret have just released the official image of the 2007 Fantasy Bra to be worn in the VS Fashion Show that will be taped in mid November this year.

Every year one of the angels (currently Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Selita Ebanks, Izabel Goulart and Miranda Kerr) are chosen to wear the bra - in 2005 Gisele Bundchen opened the show wearing it and 2006 was Karolina's year. But this year, and it has come as a shock to many, Selita Ebanks has been chosen to wear the bra - and so far, I've not found one person who is happy about it.

To be honest, I don't blame them - Selita is one of the brand's newest additions (except for Miranda Kerr who was added to the angels lineup only a few months ago) and undoubtedly the least liked by the fashion following pack. I mean don't get me wrong, she's got a good body and is prettier than most but there are much more experienced girls at VS who a large majority of people feel deserve it more.

Take Alessandra for example....she's in her sixth year at VS, has been featuring heavily in the catalogues lately and has never worn the bra to date; another strong candidate was Adriana Lima, gorgeous brazilian and one of the longest serving angels along with Alessandra. Either of them would have made wonderful ambassadors for this year's bra, but no! VS have really got it wrong this time!

And while we're on the subject....a little more VSFS news:

No need to worry too much about buying quick-selling Spice Girls comeback tour tickets -- Usmagazine.com has learned exclusively that the British bombshells will be performing at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!
The fashion show, which marks the American TV debut of the Spice Girls’ comeback tour, will be held at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre, and will be taped on November 15. Last year's musical guest was superstar Justin Timberlake. A source tells Us that the Spice Girls "are rehearsing for it already. It's going be their big comeback appearance."
Representatives for Victoria's Secret and CBS did not return calls for comment.

Rumours Resurfaced....

You should know before you read this it's probably a load of rubbish....but it's going round in the press so I thought I'd report it anyway.

Orlando Bloom has reportedly been spending this past weekend romancing Australian model Miranda Kerr - which has fueled speculation that the the pair are dating.

In April this year, Orlando was seen house-hunting (they weren't actually together) and took Miranda on a double-date at exclusive Asian restaurant Megu, in New York, over the weekend.

According to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper (Australia) the pair were apparently “smitten” with each other. An onlooker said: “They looked really happy together, and spent most of the evening cuddling and touching each other. They definitely looked like a couple.”

The pair have previously denied they were a couple, with Miranda saying: “Orlando is a nice guy but we’re just friends. We actually ran into each other by coincidence and then someone took a photo, turning a molehill into a mountain.”

Orlando has also recently been linked to former ‘Friends’ actress Jennifer Aniston, but denied they were anything more than “just good friends”.

Update: Kerr's Sydney-based agent Carly Tuhtan confirmed the genetically-blessed pair had dinner together, but played down suggestions of a romance - no surprise given Tuhtan's brother Brent has been dating Kerr for several years.

"Yes they had dinner, and yes they are good friends," Tuhtan told Confidential yesterday. "They're rarely in New York at the same time together so they wanted to catch up."

But when asked if the pair had been canoodling, Tuhtan's reply was somewhat ambiguous. "From Miranda's perspective, no they weren't. But really, what guy in his right mind wouldn't be into her?" she said.

Irina and Pete Forever?!

Though word of Irina Lazareanu's engagement to rocker Pete Doherty has spread like wildfire, not everyone's buying it. But we've gotten word that the union is for real: The former Babyshambles songwriter was overheard telling friends earlier this week that she and her beau are dead serious.

When a friend questioned her story (it was Pete who introduced her to Kate Moss, and Moss who then took Lazareanu to her agency and thus launched the quirky catwalker's now super career, remember), she dug in her purse, whipped out a hefty rock, and placed it on her left fourth finger. She even confided she had picked a date—three months from now, in December - and a location, Ireland, where Petey has roots.

But by last night's Greenhouse party at Le Baron, she'd had enough wedding talk. The catwalker was telling friends that her parents are now getting harassed by the press and paparazzi. While word is still out on what his future in-laws in Canada make of Doherty, it seems that the Lazareanus are not happy with cameramen on their front lawn.

Selita No Longer Engaged

Nick Cannon and his Victoria’s Secret fiance, Selita Ebanks, have called off their engagement according to Ebanks’ rep who confirmed with People magazine.

“Selita and Nick are taking a break to focus on their careers but still very much love each other and remain the best of friends,” says her rep, Melissa Raubvogel.

Cannon’s rep declined to comment. The break comes just five short months after the couple got engaged when Nick literally lit up Times Sqaure to propose to Ebanks with the help of a jumbotron.
