(Newser) – One lucky bidder can own Pamela Anderson’s red Baywatch swimsuit when it goes up for auction this month in Los Angeles, the Sun reports. Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider pistols more your style? Those are available, too. Elsewhere:

  • Also from the Sun, Paris Hilton is as much of a diva as you’d expect. At a recent charity party, the heiress demanded the restrooms be cleared each time she needed to visit them.

  • Last season’s surprise Idol vote-off, Michael Johns, was part of the inspiration for the new rule that allowed the judges to “save” a contestant Wednesday. But he doesn’t love the rule, pointing out to the Los Angeles Times that "the amount of press I got with everyone crying foul was phenomenal.”
  • Twitter can boast another first: CBS announced the renewal of The Amazing Race via the social networking site, notes the Hollywood Reporter.
  • Also from the Reporter: MTV will air a reality show starring DJ AM—who has himself struggled with addiction—chronicling tough-love interventions.
