*Christmas Eve found singer Brandy helping to make someone else’s life a little easier by serving hot meals to the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission. The worthy endeavor also brought out actresses Stephanie Pratt (“The Hills”) Jennifer Love Hewitt, the host of the event.

In other Brandy Christmas news, the former “Dancing with the Stars”, contestant says now that 8-year-old daughter Sy’rai knows the real deal on Santa Claus, her Christmas wish-list has well … grown.

“I got her list, and it is ridiculous. When she believed in Santa, she had a smaller list. But now that she knows I’m Santa Claus, she went crazy,” said Brandy. “Now, she wants a BlackBerry and an iPhone 4. It’s like, ‘Little girl, you are eight, and you’re asking for a BlackBerry?'”

Brandy says she told the little one to not hold her breath expecting the Blackberry or iPhone 4. Next year will probably be a different story, though.
