Empty your bank account. Beg your parents for cash. Go to a whole lot of 7-11′s and “Take A Penny” thousands of times. If you can beat the current high bid of $7500, you win a charity auction to attend a private dinner reunion of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” cast. I can sense you doing the Carlton as you read this.

Karyn Parsons, aka Hillary Banks, aka Ashley Banks’s sister, my top make-out candidate from grades 6 through 8, has organized a charity auction to benefit her organization Sweet Blackberry. Here’s Parson explaining what the winner of the best auction ever gets:

“It’s a dining experience with Alfonso Ribeiro [Carlton], Tatyana Ali [Ashley], James Avery [Uncle Phil] and myself, and a meet-and-greet with Will Smith. Will’s gonna come by and hang for a minute and meet the winner.”

Will’s gonna “hang out for a minute?” Oh, that’s right, he’s too busy transforming his brats into billion dollar hair-whippers to have a bowl of soup for an hour with his embarrassing old sit-com buddies. You’ve changed, Will.

Still, who needs the Fresh Prince when you’ve got Uncle Phil to yell at you, Carlton to dance with you, and Ashley Banks to stare at, until she feels uncomfortable and makes any excuse she can think of to leave.

“Any time on ‘Fresh Prince’ when we all had to sit down at the table together, we called them table scenes. We couldn’t get up, so we’d be there for hours. In those scenes, the outtakes are ridiculous,” Ali tells us. “We would literally be laughing ’til we cried. So I would expect somebody coming into that to expect to be at a table scene.”

Whatever you say, Tatyana Ali. Whatever you say…

You can bid here. If you win, tell the Banks’ I say “hello” and “remember the time when Hilary posed for Playboy and Uncle Phil freaked out? That was great.” (PopEater)

Stallone’s ‘Expendables’ Truck Sells For $134K, Able To Blow Up Lightning McQueen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stallones-expendables-truck-sells-for-134k-able-to-blow-up-lightning-mcqueen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stallones-expendables-truck-sells-for-134k-able-to-blow-up-lightning-mcqueen/#comments Tue, 25 Jan 2011 03:34:42 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21983 Also up for auction were cars driven by Evel Knievel, Alice Cooper and Elvis. The theme of the auction must have been "Big In The 70s."

There are times when you’re driving your car and you realize: “I need more secret compartments for movie weapons.” Well, sorry to tell you this, but you missed your chance to own the customized truck Sylvester Stallone drives in The Expendables, which sold at an Arizona auction for $134,000. The modified 1955 truck features a Ford 347cid Edelbrock engine, race seats, and “hidden compartments to hold movie weapons.” Just to hold? For $134K, I think it would have been nice if they at least threw in a few glocks, an M79 and a lightsaber.

Also up for auction were cars driven by Evel Knievel, Alice Cooper and Elvis. The theme of the auction must have been “Big In The 70s.” No word yet whether the Mystery Machine was on the block. (TMZ)

Here’s a bigger picture. So sleeky…

Geez. You've been waiting years to touch Christina Hendricks and now eBay is making it possible. A 10-day "Mad Men" auction goes live on Thursday in which some of the items up for bid are a walk-on role on the show, furniture and props from Sterling Cooper, and dresses that have graced the skin of both Betty Draper (January Jones) and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks). Imagine the things you could do with those dresses, as long as you have the matching shoes, of course. A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to the lung cancer program at southern California's City of Hope hospital. The other portion will go to the January-Jones-F*cked-Up-Again fund. You can start bidding tomorrow HERE. Make sure your PayPal accounts are in order. Christina Hendricks's dress waits for no nerd. (Vulture)
