Which Two Stories Have a Husband-Wife Link?


--Tori Spelling is coming up with new ways to raise cash these days. On Wednesday, the underemployed actress - who was basically left out of her father's $500 million will when he died over the summer - flew to New York from Toronto (where her new husband, Dean McDermott, lives) for four hours to do a "pregnant" shoot for OK! The magazine has been known to pay up to $250,000 for exclusive posed pictures, and we hear this deal was in that range.

--Jamie Lee Curtis said she has closed the book on her acting career. "I'm not an actor anymore," she told "Access Hollywood" host Nancy O'Dell. "I really don't imagine I'll do that again." Curtis, 46, went on to say: "I'm just focused on my family and just can't imagine anything that's going to pull me away from them right now."


--Alexa Ray Joel, the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, has been rocking since she was a toddler, standing backstage with Mom at her dad's concerts. Now 20, the Piano Man's kid is ready to take center stage with Sketches, a CD of six songs she wrote and released online, and a monthlong tour.

--Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross has confirmed she is expecting twins. Cross and new husband Tom Mahoney, who married in June, initially announced the actress is pregnant and due to give birth next April. Although the couple didn't reveal Cross is awaiting the arrival of twins, the news soon leaked, forcing her to confirm it. She tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "This is what happened. I was so blown away about having twins so I needed a minute to deal with it. So we didn't tell anybody, we just said that I was pregnant. I don't know where it came from, but it got out and everybody started congratulating me and I kind of gave up. So... I am having twins."


--Pop diva Shakira will donate the proceeds from a concert in her hometown to build an arts school for 1,800 children forced to flee their homes by Colombia's civil war.


--Beyonce's dad creates hip-hop album heries for the sippy-cup set


--Scarlett Johansson and Mrs. Marilyn Manson, a.k.a. Dita Von Teese have combined forces for a recent Flaunt magazine layout.


--Kathy Griffin, took on a new assistant last month: Paris Hilton. "We were doing a shoot by Mario Testino for Italian Vogue, and Paris was there - and so I put her to work and hired her as my assistant," Griffin told us. "I had her get me reservations at Mr. Chow - but I didn't invite her; I took Lance Bass. Then I had to explain to her the meaning of the word 'versatile' - she had never heard it before. I ended up firing her. It was just too tedious. She wasn't versatile enough."


--Star Trek fans from around the world have spent more than $7 million snapping up memorabilia from the TV and movie franchise at a three-day New York City auction celebrating its 40th anniversary.


--If you love Christopher Guest's movies as much as I do (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, A Mighty Wind), you'll be pumped to know that he has a new movie coming out called For Your Consideration. And, yes, all of the familiar faces are in this one as well. Click here to watch the trailer. The movie also has its own Myspace page.

1 Alexa Joel certainly sounds busy. Evidently, too busy to use an eyelash comb after applying all 8 layers of mascara.

2 Ha. Seriously. Her falsies are out of control. I must say, however, she turned out a LOT cuter than I thought she would judging by the way she looked growing up. Those Billy-esque droopy eyes were not becoming on her as a child.

3 Is it just me, or does Alexa have the same eyes as that runaway bride chick from last year?
