Demi and the $11,000 Fungus

Demi Moore definitely got the attention of paparazzi in New York yesterday, causing a massive snapstorm, but it was a really big 'shroom that had people truly ooh-ing and ahh-ing at Nello.

On her way out of the Midtown celebriteria, Moore was greeted by an unholy crush of lensmen, and gingerly managed to get into her car. Dennis Franz, who hasn't done anything in years, also got plenty of attention. But the true star on display was a fresh white truffle -- worth, we're told, $11,000 -- waiting in all its rock-like glory to be cosseted, shaved and admired.

Much like Demi herself.
