They did it!
Pamela Anderson, Bill Rancic, Christy Turlington, Patrick Wilson, Joe Bastianich and Paul Scheer all completed the grueling 26.2-mile ING New York City Marathon on Sunday – in the name of charitable causes.
From MasterChef's Bastianich celebrating with a glass of wine (and well wishes from Tom Colicchio) to Anderson icing down her entire body (and posting a photo to prove it) and to supportive spouses cheering along the race route (like Giuliana Rancic) here's how Hollywood commemorated making it to the finish line:

Those long runs on the beach finally paid off for Pamela Anderson, who put her best foot forward at Sunday's ING New York City Marathon with her brother by her side. (And, no, the Baywatch alum didn't reprise that iconic red suit for the race.)
"So proud of my brother Gerry," she wrote on Twitter. "Thank G. For running next to me today- love you lots."

In a double victory for Kenya, Geoffrey Mutai has successfully defended his New York City Marathon title and Priscah Jeptoo rallied to win the women's race.
Mutai set the course record the last time the NYC Marathon was held, in 2011. Sunday's race returned after last year's cancelation because of Superstorm Sandy.
Security was also heightened after the bombings at April's Boston Marathon.
On a windy morning, Mutai had an unofficial time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, 24 seconds, well off his mark of 2:05:06 set in nearly perfect conditions.

Usher isn't afraid to cough up dough for charity.
The singer bid $80,000 on a Richard Avedon photograph at the Gabrielle's Angel Foundation Angel Ball in New York City on Tuesday night. But unfortunately for him, that wasn't enough!
Celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, who designed Kim Kardashian's engagement sparkler, outbid the hit maker and forked over $85,000 for the piece.
And it was all for a good cause. Money from the auction will help fund cancer research, and celebs all came out to support the foundation.

All that running on Baywatch has finally paid off.
Pamela Anderson announced her plans to run the ING New York City Marathon on her Twitter account on Sunday – all in the name of a good cause.
"I'm running the New York Marathon this year and raising funds for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization," she Tweeted.
Spanning across the five boroughs, the Marathon takes place Nov. 3, leaving Anderson just over a month to raise funds to support J/P HRO, an organization that aims to save lives and bring sustainable programs to the Haiti following the earthquake of 2010.

We're used to seeing Simon Cowell, 53, as the career-driven, hard-nosed judge on The X Factor, but recently he's given us a glimpse of his softer side.
He carved time out of his busy schedule this week to visit Lauren Silverman, 37, the woman who is pregnant with his child, in New York.
Cowell, dressed in his signature white tee, alongside Silverman who was slightly more glammed up in jeans and stilettos, stopped by the Tracie Martyn penthouse spa on Tuesday. "The couple looked relaxed and happy," an onlooker says. After receiving their treatments, "they walked out of the spa looking fresh."

New York, New York, it's a hell of a town.
And on Sunday night, it's going to be a packed one: Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and more will descend upon Brooklyn for the MTV Video Music Awards – specifically, to the house that Jay-Z built (a.k.a. Barclays Center).
If you want to get into an Empire State of Mind, check out our Spotify playlist of songs. From Jigga to Beastie Boys to Frank Sinatra, these are the tracks that'll make you feel like an honorary New Yorker. Just don't call it the Big Apple. (Seriously, no one calls it that.)
