Spelling Contest

‘WE at Anorak love a charity auction. Where else but under a large tent in the Hollywood Hills can you buy a pair of Jennifer Aniston’s inner soles for $4,000?

A dog’s dinner

But things took a turn for the worse at a recent charity do at the Belly restaurant in West Hollywood.

The event, a charity pet auction aiming to raise funds for Much Love Animal Rescue, featured a $300 bone-shaped necklace.

But when the biding reached $100, Tori Spelling, the horsy star of Beverley Hills 90210, changed the rules.

She promised that whoever bid the most for the necklace would get the added bonus of a lap dance…from her!

Were this any other arena than a charity shindig, chances are that the necklace would have remained stubbornly unsold.

But people will do almost anything for charity, whether it’s sitting for a week in a bath of cold baked beans or hacking off their head with a butter knife.

So when Tori made her offer, one brave woman in the crowd bid $250. It was an act of rare selflessness, and surely she will go onto a better place.

As for the promised dance, well, let’s leave that alone, and remind everyone reading that it was for charity and, if Tori gets a dog its dinner, then who are we to judge?’
