Anne Hathaway Says No Thanks To Ex’s Gifts

Poor Anne Hathaway thought that once her crazy scam-artist ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was out of her life, it would be the end of the drama. But just when she thought the negativity surrounding their former relationship had passed, it seems there’s one more aspect of their life together that she has to deal with. After Raffaello’s transgressions became public, Anne surrendered a few gifts he’d given her, including two Rolex watches, a pair of silver-colored earrings with “blue and clear stones,” a silver-colored chain with a cross pendant, two gold-colored rings, a five-strand pearl necklace and a Louis Vuitton box. Apparently, she had a bit of a grace period when she could have asked for the gifts back, but she must have said no thank you because the items are being going up for auction, with the sales helping to repay Follieri’s victims. I mean, would you really want to keep the gifts of any ex, let alone those of a scam artist? And you thought your break-ups were full of lingering drama. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Stars Who’ve Auctioned Off Dates With Themselves For Charity

Since celebrities are so into “giving back,” they often participate in charity auctions. And what better to auction off than … time with them. Above, check out some of the celebrities who have auctioned off dates with themselves for good causes in the past two years. Kind of shocking that Simon Doonan brought in significantly more smackers than Hugh Jackman, no? Though Scarlett Johansson is totally worth $40K in our opinion. After the jump, a breakdown of what exactly each star sold and what their high bidder shelled out in the end. Keep reading »

Hot, Young Aussies Auction Off Their Virginity For A Documentary

We’ve heard of people auctioning off their virginity before — it’s so last year. But Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely has taken it to a whole new level. He’s rounded up a whole group of virgins willing to sell their virginity for a documentary. Each virgin will get paid $20,000 plus 90 percent of their purchase price, which could go as high as to the millions. Because authorities threatened to charge Sisely with prostitution if he went ahead with the plan in Australia, he’s made a deal with a Nevada brothel to host the auction, which will be filmed naturally. (The brothel will get the other 10 percent of each virgin’s sale price.) Keep reading »

Own A Piece Of Hollywood History

We love looking to movies for fashion inspiration but can’t imagine actually owning Marilyn Monroe‘s pink dress from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” or the carpet bag from “Mary Poppins.” For starters, Marilyn’s dress would never fit. However, movie fanatics and fashion lovers who want a piece of history will want to prep for antique company Profiles in History‘s Hollywood Memorabilia auction. The collection of iconic costumes from famous movies begins June 10, and Profiles in History claims Marilyn’s pink dress is “the most important film dress to ever come to auction” and expects it to sell for anywhere between $150,000 and $250,000. Meanwhile, Julie Andrews’ bag could grab $10,000 to $12,000. Clearly you’d have to be majorly rich to place a bid. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Strange Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia For Sale

I get that Marilyn Monroe was like the biggest sex symbol of all time. But how obsessed with her would you have to be to want to buy her chest x-ray? Seems creepy to me, but the auction house manager charged with selling her 1954 x-ray is confident that people will want this “ultimate look into the legend.” Yeah, that doesn’t sound stalkerish at all. In fact, he thinks this chest x-ray, taken while she was undergoing treatment for endometriosis, will bring in at least $1,200. Not me said the flea—I don’t want a dead woman’s x-ray in my house. Nor do I want her psychiatrist’s couch or her financial records, which are also up for auction. [Newser]

After the jump, some more Marilyn memorabilia that you could have had but you’re probably glad you don’t. Keep reading »
