happily engaged in a lesbian kiss with British socialite Jemima Khan for a charity donation of $108,000. The supermodel, who was dogged by controversy after she was photographed snorting cocaine last year, was due to kiss business tycoon Philip Green after he paid for the pleasure at a recent charity auction for the Hoping Foundation For Palestinian Refugee Children.

is determined to have "at least three" kids, as she suffered a lonely childhood without siblings. The Russian-born beauty is desperate for a family, and intends to adopt kids on top of any biological offspring she may have.

* Tatyana Simanava
was released from a New York City hospital yesterday after being treated for multiple injuries following a fall from a moving bus. The Belarus-born beauty was en route to a modeling appointment last week when she mistook an exit door on a luxury coach for the bathroom. After tumbling onto the highway, Simanava suffered bruising to her right arm and jaw and was treated at the Mount Sinai Medical Center.
Speaking to the New York Daily News
after the accident, she fumed, "I am not angry, but I would like that there are some changes made, that nothing like this can happen again. I am sure that the exit doors have to be locked and they have to be marked. There were no signs. I asked where the bathroom was and I was told it's down the stairs, there's a door. I opened the first door I saw, and I don't remember anything after that. My friends told me the bus driver saw me fall. Everybody said it is lucky that I am alive."
