FROM RICHES TO RAGS
Kevin Federline is ready to poke fun of his own image on the Los Angeles set of a Nationwide Insurance commercial (set to air during the Super Bowl) on Tuesday. In the ad, Federline appears in what looks like a rap video featuring the girls-and-money clichés, only to be snapped back to reality: He's actually daydreaming at the fryer at a fast-food restaurant – emphasizing Nationwide's slogan, "Life comes at you fast."
A NEW TUNE
TWO OF A KIND
Joined by husband Tom Cruise (not pictured), Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham reunite for a high-profile dinner date at The Ivy in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Holmes and Posh can look forward to many more fun evenings out: The Beckhams are moving to Los Angeles later in the year.

THE VIP CLUB

THE HOUSE HUNTER
With husband David Beckham signing on with the L.A. Galaxy soccer team, Victoria Beckham sets her sights on the Hollywood good life. The missus spent Monday shopping at The Grove in West Hollywood before reportedly checking out some homes in Beverly Hills.
Meanwhile it's another happy meal for Posh's BFFs Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who grab dinner at one of their favorite eateries, Wolfgang Puck's Cut at the Beverly Wilshire, in Beverly Hills recently.
