Girls Just Want to Have Fun(ds)

My pals on the Left Coast report that the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center had a great success with Friday night's gala, "An Evening with Women: Celebrating Art, Music & Equality" in Beverly Hills. The event raised more than $360,000 for the center’s services for women. Jennifer Coolidge was her usual hysterical self (on Prop 8: "I just got a whole tube of that the other day"), as was Sarah Silverman, who riffed on the experience of the sign language interpreter faced with signing Silverman’s off-color repertoire. For the second year in a row, Sharon Stone took the helm of the live auction.

Linda Perry and Christina Aguilera brought the house down with live performances of "Mother" and "Beautiful." Also on hand were longtime gay rights activist Cybill Shepherd and her knockout daughter, Clementine Ford, as well as Leisha Hailey, Clea DuVall and Sharon and Kelly Osbourne. Sounds like a great night for a great cause!
