Demi Moore shakes off divorce woes in the Caribbean
Seems like Demi Moore is back to her normal partying ways post her divorce, as she celebrated a mother-daughter Christmas vacation in Turks and Caicos.
Though the actress had maintained a very low profile since her split with estranged husband Ashton Kutcher, she was spotted with her daughter, Rumer Willis, at the uber-private Parrot Cay resort, where the two shared a rocking Christmas Eve at a poolside bar and Moore "danced up a storm."
According to sources Moore began to dance when Rumer took over DJing duties.
"Demi was dancing seductively for all the guys (at the bar) and they were going nuts," the New York Post quoted a source as saying.
"Demi could do The Wiggles dance and still look hot," another source said.
The slinky moves even earned the raven-haired beauty the nickname 'Single Hot Demi' or, simply, 'SHD', from other hotel guests during their stay.

Gaga's former personal assistant sues singer over excessive workload
Lady Gaga's former personal assistant has filed a lawsuit against the pop diva claiming that she had to cater to the singer's every whim, at every hour of the day and night, handling her schedule, finances and food.
Long Islander Jennifer O'Neill endured 13 long months as the domineering diva's personal aide.
According to court papers, the Garden City girl could barely muster a poker face while ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep (Gaga) on schedule.
O'Neill said that there were no breaks for meals 'or, at times, even sleep', and she was required to be on hand for anything the Grammy Award-winning singer needed, at her 'earliest waking hour' or for 'spontaneous, random matters in the middle of the night'.
Part of O'Neill's 75,000 dollars-a-year job was 'ensuring the availability of chosen outfits', which was no small task considering her ex-boss is best known for wearing a meat dress to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and dressing like a 'human condom' for an appearance on Good Morning America.
O'Neill filed a lawsuit against the pop queen's Mermaid Touring company in Manhattan federal court last week for 380,000 dollars in unpaid overtime, the New York Post reported.
She claimed that she worked 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime toiling at under the reign of the queen of the 'Little Monsters'.
Along with her back pay, the American University graduate is also seeking unspecified damages. A spokeswoman for Gaga branded the lawsuit 'completely without merit'.

Rihanna's sizzling Armani ad voted as the sexiest of 2011
Rihanna's scorching hot advertisement for Armani Underwear has been voted as the sexiest of 2011.
The raunchy promo was hailed the best of the year in a poll of advertising industry chiefs carried out by U.S. magazine Advertising Age.
The magazine praised the 23-year-old, saying that she had never looked better.
"It's Rihanna at her sexiest. She's never looked this good," the Daily Mail quoted the magazine as saying.
"She's in amazing shape and the pictures are stunning," the magazine said.
Model Miranda Kerr finished in second place due to her breathtaking return to underwear modelling for Victoria's Secret just weeks after having her first child earlier this year.
Advertising Age called the 28-year-old as 'fabulous' in its article.
"It's like she's never been away," they said.
British supermodel Kate Moss, last year's winner, finished in third place because of her topless campaign for Italian clothing firm Liu Jo.
A series of 'Hope' lingerie commercials secured fourth position for Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, also a new mother after giving birth to her baby a little over two years ago.
Ronaldo's stunning girlfriend Irina Shayk helped little-known US swimwear firm 'Luli Fama' clinch fifth place.
The mag claimed that the model was currently in 'massive demand.' (ANI)

Mariah Carey seeking lucrative New Year's Eve deal
Mariah Carey apparently wants to make big money this new year's eve and is thus seeking a huge money spinning deal to fulfil her wish, according to reports.
With less than a week to go, the newly svelte songstress' team was shopping over the past few days for a gig paying up to 500,000 dollars, at any venue in the United States and beyond the New York Post reported.
Reportedly, Carey's team also was asking for a private jet to fly her and her entourage out of Aspen, where she is spending the holidays with her family.
"Mariah's management was looking for a very lucrative deal for her, but she'd sing only just a few songs. But there haven't yet been any takers," a source said.
"While her team is fielding her offers, Mariah is happy spending the holidays with her twins and husband."
But contrary to what the source has said, superstar's rep has denied any such reports.
"She's not doing any New Year events. She'll be in Aspen with her family," the rep said.

Janet Jackson named PETA's 'Grinch Of The Year'
The animal rights group -- PETA -- has named Janet Jackson as the 'Grinch Of The Year'.
The group 'honoured' the singer as they felt that she has exploited the well being of animals in her fashion choices more than any other celebrity in 2011.
According to JAM, Jackson, who teamed up with company Blackglamma to debut her line of fur clothing accessories in November, topped the list ahead of director Cameron Crowe and reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
"While the holidays may be known as the season of giving and peace on earth, that's not always the case for our animal friends," the Nation quoted Peta spokeswoman Wendy Wegner as saying.
"When Janet Jackson had her infamous wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIII, at least what popped into view of 170 million onlookers belonged to her, unlike the animal skins she drapes herself in, which are as dead as her fashion taste and her career," Wegner added.

PETA slams Kim Kardashian over fur-wearing habit
Janet Jackson wasn't the only on on the receiving end of PETA. The animal rights group has launched a billboard campaign against Kim Kardashian, slamming her love for fur coats.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians favourite has regularly been spotted wearing such jackets this year, despite already being chastened by the group, who named her their worst dressed person of 2010, the Daily Mail reported.
In addition to the adverts, the animal rights organisation has also attacked the 31-year-old on their website.
"Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive," PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said.
"We've explained it to her, and she's watched a video expose that was filmed inside fur farms.
"When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless," Lange added.
Ironically, the estranged wife of basketball journeyman Kris Humphries had turned out to support a PETA campaign poster against fur, which featured her sister Khloe earlier this year.
