She may be known for how little she wears on stage, but at last night’s W Magazine screening of Battle in Seattle in Malibu, burlesque star Dita Von Teese gave PEOPLE a backstage scoop on her life, love, and soon-to-launch line of lingerie. “I work a lot. I’m traveling all the time, so I go to a lot of parties and events and I have fun. My work is fun,” says the former Mrs. Marilyn Manson. And while she is dipping her toe into the dating pool again, finding a man is not a priority at the moment. “I just work a lot, and fortunately work for me is a lot of fun. Along away I meet a nice gentleman to go out with once in awhile — actually they’re not gentlemen at all.” In addition to her party-hopping, Dita is working on an appropriate new line of apparel. “I have a lingerie collection coming out for Wonderbra only in Europe,” she tells us. “I’m really excited about that.” And fortunately for us, she’s not counting out bringing the collection to America after the September launch. “I think it’s a really beautiful collection,” she says. “People are really excited about it. So we’ll see.” Tell us: Would you wear Dita’s signature line of lingerie if it launched in the U.S.?

Ms Von Teese is not only beautiful on the outside, but she’s beautiful on the inside too. She’s held her own during her divorce from Mr. Manson when he cheated on her with the child star, Ms. Wood. She didn’t ask for anything, and she’s proving to the world that she can hold her own. By doing her own thing. She’s not like some of these divorcee’s where they lean on their ex’s for crazy amounts of alimony & support.

Go Ms. Von Teese. You have my support 100%!!!

Dude. Dita is NOT classy at all. Unless Americans think that classy is a glorified stripper (whose body is not that great), with a two pounds of make-up under skin whitening cream. Thats sick.
