'Desperate Housewives' Star Chairs Halloween Fundraiser
'Desperate Housewives' Star Chairs Halloween Fundraiser
Desperate Housewives' Teri Hatcher went trick or treating with her nine-year old daughter last weekend at a Halloween party for the benefit of the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation.  Hatcher came home with a necklace but daughter Emerson was outbid for her mom's look-alike Barbie.

Meanwhile, fellow Wisteria lane resident, Eva Longoria, also took part in another charity event, contributing sexy undergarment designs to the Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie Fashion Show last Wednesday.

First up, Teri Hatcher was all dolled up – literally and figuratively – as the queen of hearts during last Saturday's Dream Halloween's Under the Big Top party at Santa Monica Airport's Barker Hangar.  The costume party cum fundraising event featured an auction whose proceeds were intended for the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation.  Aside from Hatcher, the affair also saw other stars like Marlee Matlin, Doris Roberts and Jason Priestley in attendance.

Hatcher, who was chairwoman of the event, auctioned off a unique Barbie doll bearing her likeness and clad in the same Badgley Mischka gown the actress came dressed in.  A Desperate Housewives fan coughed up the winning bid of $20,000 for the one of a kind miniature mannequin.  Emerson, Hatcher's young daughter, was quite put off that they failed to bring home her mommy's look-alike, saying having the real thing at home still wasn't enough.

"No, the doll's better," said the disappointed nine-year old.

Aside from the Teri Hatcher-like Barbie, the Desperate Housewives actress' own dress also went on sale, fetching $25,000 complete with a dinner date package for the winning bidder.  As for Ms. Hatcher, who also had her eye on a few of the pieces up for grabs, the Desperate Housewives co-star managed to snare a necklace which she won the bidding for at $3,000.

In other news, a few days before Hatcher's Halloween auction shindig, her Desperate Housewives castmate, Eva Longoria, along with other celebrities like Scarlett Johannson and Jeremy Piven contributed their own sexy corset designs to the Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie Fashion Show last Wednesday evening.

Hosted by celebrity couple, Jane Kaczmarek and Bradley Whitford, the lingerie fashion show also featured a musical number by the Foo Fighters who strutted their own stuff on the catwalk.  Among the high profile attendees of the red carpet event, which took place at The Palladium, were Jessica Simpson, Janet Jackson, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.  The evening also included its own auction to benefit the Clothes Off Our Back charity.
