Animal-rights crusader Kim Basinger sold her 3.7-carat diamond engagement ring from ex-husband Alec Baldwin at auction Tuesday for $59,750. The proceeds will benefit the Performing Animal Welfare Society, a California refuge for abused, retired and surplus elephants, lions, bears and other captive wildlife. So, who scored the winning bid? A Beverly Hills jewelry dealer, who predicted a fan would "pay crazy money for that." That's the spirit.
