Keibler recently took a day off from her glam lifestyle with Clooney, her beau of more than a year, to work with Habitat for Humanity to build a house in California — where it sounds like she didn't get any special treatment! "I thought I'd get there and maybe paint," the 5'11" beauty says. "But they threw me right in there. I've never felt more powerful in my life! I don't even know what the machines were that I was using. I couldn't believe that they were actually trusting me to use the things!" she jokes. The best part, Keibler notes, was working alongside the family that would live in the home. (The organization requires that the people it helps work on their future dwellings.) "Just to see the pride in their faces and to know that they're going to have a place to call their own, it was just such an amazing experience," Keibler smiles.
It was so amazing, in fact, that Keibler has now partnered with Valspar, a paint company that provides paint for Habitat houses, on a new campaign to raise money for the organization. Now through November 7, people can go to Valspar's Facebook page and virtually paint a house by choosing their favorite shade of Valspar paint. The brand will donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity for each paint job, up to $50,000.

Come January, Keibler will have one more gig: hosting the upcoming Lifetime series "Supermarket Superstars." (And no, in case you were wondering, it's not going to be like the '90s show "Supermarket Sweep," which she says everyone assumes.) On her show, contestants will pitch a new product and compete to have it sold in grocery stores across the country.
Between the upcoming premiere of her show and the impending awards season, the one-time "Dancing With the Stars" contestant says she hasn't had time to check out the reality competition's current all-star season. "I haven't even seen one episode of it," admits Keibler, who took third place in the ballroom in 2006. "I've been traveling so much that I haven't been able to catch up on it."
You can catch a glimpse of Keibler on red carpets everywhere in the coming months.
