‘Laguna Beach’ reality star headed to Marine Corps Ball

“Laguna Beach” cast member Kristin Cavallari has joined “Friends with Benefits” stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake in accepting an invitation to a Marine Corps Ball.

On Thursday, U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Jonathan Burkett got online to invite the 24-year-old California girl to the fall formal event, tweeting the actress: “Wanted to know if you want to go to the Marine Corps Ball with me in San Diego?! Would make a video but still deployed!”

The military man also tweeted that the celebrity’s buddies could tag along. “Could have your friends come too and all go out in San Diego. Figured it would be a good time and it’s close by!” Later that day Miss Cavallari tweeted back at Lance Cpl. Burkett, “Would love to! When is it?”

TMZ reported Friday that Miss Cavallari’s representatives are in the process of organizing her plans.

In July, Miss Kunis confirmed she would attend a Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Around the same time, singer Justin Timberlake said he would make an appearance at one of the balls. Then “Terminator” actress Linda Hamilton posted a YouTube video begging Sgt. Ray Lewis to take her to the event in place of “Golden Girls” actress Betty White, who could not accept the invitation.

At the end of the month, 26-year-old “Hes Just Not That into You” sexpot Scarlett Johansson declined an invitation to the ball but sent a case of champagne to Sgt. Dustin L. Williams along with her regrets.
