Our photo of the moment is of Dita Von Teese for Bwatt magazine!

Dita made sure to talk about her love of lingerie:

"My lingerie is something really important to me because I feel like my whole career was built on my love of lingerie. I used to work in a lingerie store, and it's something really close to me. Lingerie is symbolic of the womanhood and a very private and personal luxury but which can also be used for seduction if you choose... So my lingerie line, called Von Follies, is also base don updating and modernizing things from my vintage archives and from books. And of course my desire of what kind of lingerie I would like to be wearing."

Nice desire.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Garters and stockings can never go out of style....

When you have a lingerie collection to market, who else better to model the lingerie other than yourself? Dita Von Teese does just that!

Dita is modeling her own Von Follies lingerie and looking stunning doing so we must say.

Wouldn't you agree?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Still can't get over she was with Marilyn Manson though...

So it seems we were not the only ones having trouble getting photos of Dita Von Teese & Mayte Garcia performing a couple of weeks ago.. The photo above of Dita is the only one I took before some security dude told me to chill on taking photos or else. Guess my pink wristband was for access but not photo press for this burlesque and belly dance show.

Dita Von Teese tore it up with a musical number to start off the show and ended up with her in a bathtub. She has great bodily dimensions but every time I think about Marilyn Manson, I lose interest.

Mayte was on second and got a pretty good reception from the crowd before she started her routine. Straight up, Mayte is hot like soup! She was shaking and barefoot no less obviously. Girl got abs of steel.

Another girl performed along with 2 more Dita performances but I chilled back in the VIP area where I got into a little bit of trouble. No need to get into it though.

While leaving, I was followed out right behind Perez Hilton & his "date" Jewel.  Too funny.  The future followed behind the present and soon to be the past. Jewel has been all up in Perez's butt as of late. She has to realize she will never have the success of Katy Perry or Lady Gaga so stop trying so hard to be his friend. Desperate baby. 

Back on point, had a great time with Dita & Mayte and it did turn into the ex-wives and girlfriend's club of Prince in the VIP section with Mayte (Wife #1), Manuela Testolini (Wife #2) with Eric Benet, and Carmen Electra (Go-Go Dancer #1) were all there.  Who would have thought? Purple craziness.-Dr.FB

(P.S. We got some photos of Mayte's performance and will be posting them very soon today!)

As we told you before, friend of the site, Mayte Garcia is dancing as part of Dita Von Teese's show this Wednesday at the Avalon/Bardot club in Hollywood.

I asked if she had anything she wanted to share with me and all of you about the show and what she has been up to.  She did and to sum it up, she is excited!

" I am very excited. I am performing solo and it will be a sword dance with a cool drum solo. It will be very informal but fun. I am excited because it is going to be great!"

She also wanted to add that she has a DVD coming out and it will be titled "The Elements of Belly Dance By Mayte" and we should have a shot of the DVD to share you with you very soon.

Mayte has been doing a few shows as of late, "Army Housewives" and "Dance Your A@@ Off" which airs on Oxygen Monday nights.

I want to thank Mayte for her time and can't wait to see your performance and Dita's on Wednesday. We are excited for the performance and for  you as well Mayte.-Dr.FB

Dita Von Teese seems to have a new man nowadays. Which means she would be OTM.

Dita is rumored to be dating Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac.  We are told we are obligated to tell you that he is 14 years or so her junior.  Us?  We don't care and don't think it is a problem that a 39 year old bombshell wants to date a 25 year old dude.

We hope if it is true that Dita is happy and are currently waiting for her 9 hour + shoot she did last Sunday to make it out already.-Dr.FB
