Victoria Coren big boobs - BBC presenter and pro poker playerVictoria Coren Mitchell Wins Big In Poker Tournament – although best known as a journalist and the host of BBC’s Only Connect quiz show, Victoria is a world-class poker player.

Colour Photos of 40’s Movie Stars – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 30 October 2013

Lauren Bacall - early Kodachrome colour photo from 1946

Lauren Bacall

Colour Photos of 40’s Movie Stars – some photos have been released from a new book which shows very early colour images of a number of Hollywood stars from the 1940s.

The new book is called Hollywood In Kodachrome 1940-49 and features over 200 high quality Kodachrome images of such stars as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner and Carmen Miranda.

The photos come from the private stock of David Wills who has one of the largest collection of colour photographs from the 1940s in the world. He has previously released a number of high-quality coffee-table style  photography books featuring images from Hollywood’s golden era.

Two of his best-known publications are last year’s Audrey The 60s, which featured almost 300 pages of photographs of the gamine Audrey Hepburn, some of which came from the sets of her famous movies and had never been seen before. He also released Metamorphosis, one of the best photo books ever published on Marilyn Monroe.

The new Hollywood In Kodachrome collection of photos shows vibrant images that would have truly amazed the moviegoers from the 40s who would more than likely have never seen a colour image of their hero or heroine before. At this time all the movies were still shot in black and white and even the magazine and advertising features would only have shown the stars in black and white photographs.

Melissa Joan Hart Reveals She Was A Naughty Witch! – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 26 September 2013

Melissa Joan Hart naked under bedsheet for Maxim 1999 photoshootMelissa Joan Hart Reveals She Was A Naughty Witch! – the 37-year old actress is now a wife and mother to 3 young children but has revealed in a new book that she had a much raunchier past than anyone suspected.

Melissa is of course best-known for her role in Sabrina The Teenage Witch, playing the title role of Sabrina Spellman in both the 1996 tv movie as well as the follow-up tv series.

Melissa is about to release a new autobiographical book called Melissa Explains It All and in it she tells us some surprising facts about her life at the time she was a star on children’s tv.

It seems that Melissa dabbled in drugs, including ecstasy and mescaline, as well as lifting the lid on several of her celebrity affairs.

The only slightly raunchy thing that we previously linked Melissa with was her 1999 Maxim photos but it seems that even this was not quite as it seemed. As Melissa explains in her new book she was at a Playboy Mansion party prior to the photoshoot and has been taking ecstasy as well as making out with a girl on the limo ride home.

Quite what Sabrina’s aunts Hilda and Zelda would have to say about all this we dread to think!

Melissa’s book Melissa Explains It All is available from 29 October and will cost £12.23 from Amazon UK and $14.99 from Amazon’s US store.

The new Fifty Shades lingerie collection has been developed by UK lingerie company BlueBella and as you might expect the collection features many references to characters and scenes from the books. The collection will feature lingerie with bows, a subtle reference to the bondage sections on the book and also has a range of knickers with Fifty Shades messaging on them. This last themed set will feature messages from the books such as “You are mine” and “Laters baby.”

As well as the expected range of women’s lingerie the new Fifty Shades range will also include some Christian Grey style boxer shorts for the men.

The new range is being released to capitalise on the expected media buzz that will surround the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie that is being released next year.

The initial gift collection range will be available for purchase in time for Christmas 2013 with the full range not being released until next summer to tie in with the movie release date.

The BlueBella range is one of the more affordable lingerie ranges and this new Fifty Shades lingerie collection is no exception with prices from between £12 and £40. The company uses a “social selling” network so if you are a woman in the UK you can probably expect a number of invites to Fifty Shades of Grey Lingerie Parties over the coming months!

Devil May Care - 2015 Bond movie starring Daniel Craig?2015 Bond Movie To Be Based On Devil May Care – reports are coming out that say the next James Bond movie will be based on the 2008 novel Devil May Care.

It is looking like the 24th movie in the Bond franchise will be using the plot of Sebastian Faulks’ novel written to  celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bond writer Ian Fleming’s birth. The book was released by Penguin Books on 28 May 2008, the actual centenary of Fleming’s birth.

Unlike many of the more recent Bond novels Devil May Care was written very much based on the same style as used by Ian Fleming. It was also set in the 60’s to further add to the authentic feel.

The main characters of the novel apart from Bond are the book’s baddie, Dr Julius Gorner, a megalomaniac chemist with a deep-seated hatred of Britain and a new female MI6 agent, Scarlett Papava. We are sure that betting will soon start on who is play each of these central roles.

The action of Devil May Care takes place in several locations, just as you would expect from any good Bond novel, including Iran, Afghanistan, Russia and England. Read the rest of this entry »

In Cleo Rocos’s new book The Power of Positive Drinking she tells the tale of how one night she was at Kenny Everett’s London penthouse flat with Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and Princess Diana when they talked about going out to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, a very well-known gay bar in Lambeth.

Princess Di apparently decided that she would like to join then despite Everett warning her that the place was not for her as it was “full of hairy gay men”. Despite this she was still keen to join them and as she was at the time possibly the most recognised person on the planet some sort of disguise was obviously in order. Between them all they worked out that they might just get away with the Princess joining them if she was dressed up as a male model. Read the rest of this entry »
