A CBS rep tells UsMagazine.com that Hilary Duff has signed on to guest star in the Jennifer Love Hewitt starring ‘Ghost Whisperer’. Duff begins shooting the episode ‘Thrilled to Death’ on Friday, where the 21-year-old will play a beautiful woman of mystery who may be involved in the death of a man who fell victim to a freak accident.
Hilary Duff is on the cover of Maxim magazine’s January issue, where the singer and actress was asked about a quote she supposedly gave in 2006 that she was a virgin. “You know what? I was quoted saying I was a virgin, but I absolutely did not say that,” the 21-year-old said. “That’s nobody’s business but my own. Somehow it turned into a bad thing!”
Duff also complained about another gossip item. “I’ve been accused by the press of giving lap dances at clubs,” she says. “I mean, little ol’ me? It’s shocking. People love to believe it —- it’s way more exciting to talk about than the truth! And they’re so descriptive about these lap dances. I don’t even know how to do a lap dance!”
