Last night, members of the cast of America’s Most Smartest Model got together to celebrate the series at Winston’s in Los Angeles. Clearly, their spokesmodeling skills have improved a bit since the show.

Mary Alice Stephenson, co-host of America’s Most Smartest Model, is a fashion industry insider whose smart looks and smart tongue control her show’s pretty people. Each week we talk with her about issues on the show. This time the subjects are Brett’s dirty mouth, Rachel’s overall collapse and — what else? — V.J.’s sneaky-sneaky behavior.
Finally – proof that Britney Spears is a HUMAN! The always-wasted singer apparently wanted a little Federlove for her birthday (what, $30,000 in furs wasn’t enough?) and made a call to her ex asking him to join her in celebrating her b-day. She wanted some ex sex! A source revealed that Brit had to use pal Paris’ phone because she couldn’t find her own (too many mojitos, maybe?). A source revealed that, “She begged him to come out with her, [but] Kevin reminded her that one of them needed to be a parent and take care of the boys. Then she hung up on him. Kevin said she was drinking.”
Is the Fed-love really that good? It’s too bad Kevin wasn’t at Brit’s recent video shoot, because maybe that would have motivated her to go. Britney almost bailed on the shoot, and only went – 12 hours late – when she learned that her label was going to give it to another singer on the label. Not wanting to be outdone by eager up and comer, Samantha Jade, Brit got off her ass and schlepped to the vid. Who knew they could repurpose shoots like that? Sounds like Jive isn’t willing to let Britney waste their money anymore. [NYP. Getty]

All Mariah Carey Pics
The world would be a poorer place without Mariah Carey. The R&B princess works tirelessly for our collective amusement (today, for instance, sees the release of The Adventures of Mimi, the starlet’s concert DVD that features a performance from 2006). In 2005, she released The Emancipation of Mimi, the best-selling record of the year, and was named the sixth richest woman in entertainment, according to Forbes magazine, as of last January. The lady’s worth around $225 million, which, unless you’re Bill Gates and/or the Federal Reserve, is nothing to sneeze at. She’s currently at work on her next studio album, due out in the spring. But that’s not why we’ve included her here, today. No, the reason why she’s made our Hottie of the Week list is because she’s totally delectable. And that episode of Cribs, when she was on the StairMaster in lingerie? That’s been burned into our brains. Permanently.

Mariah Carey Smells Like 2005
As 2007 dwindles down, we look back at our favorite tracks. Each Tuesday through the end of the month, we’ll sing the praises of the 20 songs that made our year. See what made the cut, and let us know what you think of our choices.
Eve, “Tambourine,” from Here I Am (GEFFEN)
Never has a bait-and-switch so bruised dance floors around the world. When Eve’s alarm-call “Tambourine” first dropped, Paris hadn’t seen the inside of a jail cell, Dog the Bounty Hunter still had a career, and Lindsay had only been to rehab once. The world was ready for the triumphant return of the Caramel Bombshell, who managed to make hard-spit rhymes seem glam and menacing, like a Swarovski encrusted glock. All the pieces were in place: the Swizz Beatz-produced first single was a masterpiece – an early ‘70s funk sample from the Soul Searchers, the air raid beat, and the classiest lady in hip-hop employing a clever euphemism for dancing. Between reggaeton whoops, Eve demands we get on the dance floor. And that’s what we do. It remains unclear whether Here I Am contains other gems; the troubled disc has been pushed back ’til January.
If you don’t know who Mary Carey is, consider your life thus far incomplete. The porn star who forged a career out of a vague resemblance to Mariah Carey and then ran for governor of California is set to appear next on VH1′s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, coming in 2008.
But first, she’s auctioning her boobs! Seriously! Her recently removed breast implants have been signed and are now up for auction on eBay, with some of the proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Says Mary:
“Now that I’m sober, I wanted a new physical state to go along with my new mental state. I thought the auction would be a great way to spread some holiday cheer and to make sure someone out there has a Mary Mary Christmas.”
I’d make a ho-ho-ho joke, but I don’t want to be Imused.
Oh, but you know what the best thing about this is? The removed implants don’t signal a reduction, but an upgrade: since having her 36-D’s removed, Mary’s moved up to 36-DDD’s. So, basically, you’re getting her sloppy, perhaps deflated seconds, but hey, it’s for charity, right?
After the jump, a closer look at the boobs up for bid…
Ah, poor Lauren. Whatever could be wrong?
Looks like our Hills heroine finally realized that her flapper costume looked a lot sexier on paper than it did on her person. Better luck next Halloween!
…complete and utter failure!
