It was a star-powered night at STK in LA, with Nicole Richie, Demi Moore, Courtney Cox-Arquette, Jennifer Aniston and Sheryl Crow all in attendance at “Stamp Out Violence Against Women and Girls of the Congo.”
Mom-to-be Nicole, who showed off her growing baby belly in basic black, explained why she was there to support the cause.
“I’m all about making people aware and showing them what the problem is. It’s impossible to turn your back on something like this,” she tells People magazine. “It’s really hard to complain about anything when you hear the stories of these women and children and their torture.”
The event capped off a busy day for Nicole, who wrote on Twitter, “Today I worked, burned my hand, missed a sugar test, wrote a letter to Obama, supported women of the Congo, & met an online porn star….”
Nicole and her boyfriend Joel are expecting baby #2 this summer. Soon-to-be big sister Harlow Winter Kate is 17 months.

It’s not quite an Academy Award, but Brad Pitt has earned himself a new honor. The 45-year-old dad-of-six was named The Celebrity Dad Most Women Want To See In His Underwear in a Jockey International poll. Brad received 29% of the vote to take the title.
Other famous fathers who received the underwear honors include Matthew McConaughey (24%), Hugh Jackman (19%), Will Smith (16%) and President Barack Obama (13%).
Notably missing from the list is dad-of-three David Beckham. The footballer unveiled his new Armani underwear ads in front of hundreds of adoring fans in London yesterday. Though he says that he didn’t mind shooting the revealing pics, David admits that “when they’re unveiled it’s a little embarrassing”.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, ex-wife Dany Garcia and their 7 1/2-year-old daughter Simone Johnson were photographed at the “I Have A Dream” Foundation Spring Gala in New York City on Thursday.
Although Dwayne and Dany split after 10 years of marriage, the two stand strong on their resolve to stay amicable and dedicate the rest of their lives together as friends for the sake of their daughter. Rare in (and outside of) Hollywood!
Update: Malawi’s high court has ruled that Madonna can adopt her second child from the country, reports USMagazine.com.
Her lawyer, Alan Chinula, called the singer this morning (June 12) to deliver the happy news. “It’s the wee hours of morning in New York, but she is excited at the news,” says Chinula. “As her lawyer, I am happy that this has settled this contentious issue.”
Originally, Madonna’s request to adopt the 3-year-old girl was denied due to the fact that she hadn’t lived in Malawi for the appropriate amount of time. Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo believed that other facts should have been taken into consideration in this ruling, such as Madonna’s commitment to helping disadvantaged children.
“In this global village a man can have more than one place at which he resides,” says Munlo. “The matter of residence should be determined at the time of application of the adoption. In this case, Madonna was in Malawi not by chance but by intention. She is looking after several orphans whose welfare depends on her. She can therefore not be described as a sojourner.”
Currently, Chinula is working on obtaining a passport for the three year old girl. Sources from the high court claim that Madonna and Mercy should be together by next Wednesday.
