Denise Lewis appearing as Beyonce on ITV's Your Face Looks FamiliarDenise Lewis To Impersonate Beyonce On TV Show – the former Olympic gold medal winning heptathlete is to impersonate her singing hero Beyonce on this Saturday’s Your Face Looks Familiar on ITV.

The 40-year old athlete has already proved she is game for most things after appearing on the show as Tina Turner, Nicki MInaj and most strangely as Lenny Kravitz.

She has yet to win top place in the new show but the very competitive Denise will be hoping that he performance as Beyonce singing Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) will propel her to the top of the leaderboard. Anyone who saw her compete on Strictly Come Dancing will not need convincing that she is a lady who enters things to win. Denise made it to the final of Strictly with pro partner Ian Waite only to lose out on winning the glitterball trophy to actress Jill Halfpenny.

The new ITV show, which is presented by Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness, has received some very mixed reviews so far with many commenting that the acts concentrate more on the look of the star they are impersonating than on getting the sound right. Read the rest of this entry »

Michael Phelps and hot girlfriend Win McMurryESPY Awards 2013, Winners and Red Carpet Photos – this year’s ESPY award ceremony brought the usual mix of sports stars and celebrities from the world of television and movies.

The event was hosted by Mad Men star Jon Hamm and came from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Previous hosts for the sports award show have included Samuel L Jackson, Matthew Perry, Justin Timberlake and Seth Meyers. The title of ESPY Awards is actually an abbreviation, the full title of the awards being the Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Awards.

There were a number of red carpet highlights, including models and movie stars as well as the expected sports stars from track and field, tennis, swimming and gymnastics to name but a few.

As might be expected at the awards there was plenty of room for some crossover guests with one of the most popular on the night being model and tv presenter Katherine Webb who was seen on the celebrity diving show Splash! Katherine’s nautically themed outfit seemed to divide opinion on the night with some finding the revealing design just to their taste whilst others found it a less attractive design.

Also causing a stir on the ESPYs red carpet were actress Olivia Wilde and her boyfriend Jason Sudeikis. Olivia wore a little black crop top which she matched with a light and dark red check pencil skirt. The couple has recently been in the news for talking about their very active sex life which Jason says is responsible for his recent dramatic weight loss. Sound better than eating rice cakes doesn’t it! Read the rest of this entry »

Celebrities At Wimbledon Tennis Championships – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 02 July 2013

Tess Daly in little white 2-piece at WimbledonCelebrities At Wimbledon Tennis Championships – today saw another crop of celebrities take to the seats around the Centre Court at Wimbledon but it seems there was a strong dancing theme today!

Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly was a visitor to the SW19 courts today together with her husband, fellow tv presenter Vernon Kay.

Tess looked ready to take her place on court as she wore a little all-white 2-piece outfit. She completed the Wimbledon white look with a matching white bag and white sandals with a silver trim and also carried a white jacket with her in case of any typically British weather coming along during the day’s play.

Continuing the Strictly theme one of the show’s judging panel, Darcey Bussell, was also sitting amongst the Centre Court crowd today. Darcey was wearing a bright lime, purple and navy dress which she matched with a navy cardigan.

Adding still further to the dancing theme Darcey was sitting with Wimbledon regular Katherine Jenkins. The singer did of course appear on the US version of Strictly, Dancing With The Stars, where she very nearly took the title.

Darcey and Katherine have been pals for a while and appeared together in 2007 in their show Viva La Diva, which toured the UK.

Other celebs spotted around the Centre Court today included veteran radio and tv presenter Sir Terry Wogan, who was there with his wife, actress Kim Cattrall, film producer Richard Curtis and singer Grace Jones. It was Jones who unsurprisingly took the day’s wackiest fashion award as she was seen a very strange hooded jacket that appeared to be made of some sort of artificial fur.

Photos Posted Of Victoria Beckham Laughing And Smiling – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 24 June 2013

Victoria Beckham laughing. Photo of VB, Posh Spice smiling for her husband David Beckham.

Photos Posted Of Victoria Beckham Laughing And Smiling – it seemed to many as likely to be photographed as a shot of the Loch Ness monster having a swim or the Yeti on walkabout but yes there really is a photo of Victoria Beckham smiling.

The singer turned top international fashion designer is well-known for adopting a strange slightly grumpy looking pout when she spots a photographer within range but as you might expect it is her husband David who is the one to catch that elusive photo.

She and David are in China at the moment where she is launching her latest range of fashion designs. They appeared together on a special show which they presented on China’s Central Television network. Although Victoria is promoting her Autumn/Winter 2013 line David is on a goodwill tour of China to promote football. He is a huge star in the Far East and here at WHWTN we saw last year the impact of the Beckham phenomenon first hand when in an out-of-the-way part of Vietnam we saw a small photo and football jersey shrine to the former Manchester Utd, LA Galaxy, Real Madrid, Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and England footballer. Although some may think there have been better footballers there can be little argument that he is the most commercially successful footballer of all. Read the rest of this entry »

Maria Menounos In Greek Tribute Bikini – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 20 June 2013

Maria Menounos shows cleavage in tiny Greek bikiniMaria Menounos In Greek Tribute Bikini – the actress and former pro-wrestler has gone back to her roots with a trip to Greece.

She is on holiday on the Greek island of Mykonos with friends and family and she showed off her Greek roots  and her great figure with a stylish and sexy Greek flag themed bikini.

Maria is no stranger to showing off her body as she competed in beauty pageants from the age of 17 before moving on to work as a television reporter after she finished college.

Although she didn’t appear in an actual James Bond movie Maria was a virtual Bond girl when her voice and digital likeness appeared as Eva Adara in the 2005 EA video game From Russia With Love opposite the voice and digital likeness of Sean Connery.

She also has a stint as a WWE wrestler on her cv. Her first pro wrestling bout came in October 2009 although she hasn’t wrestled professionally since 2012.

Maria’s trip to the Greek island of Mykonos may well be her searching for her Grecian roots as both of her parents are Greek immigrants. One thing is for sure apart from her dark Greek good looks Maria will fit in very well on holiday as she is fluent in Greek and has been so since a young age. Read the rest of this entry »

Bathing Beauty Esther Williams Dies At 91 – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 06 June 2013

Esther Williams shows off her great figure in bathing suitBathing Beauty Esther Williams Dies At 91 – the talented swimming champion turned Hollywood movie star has died in her sleep at the age of 91-years old.

Esther Williams was certainly a star from a totally different era. She became a national swimming champion in the 1930’s by the age of 16. She then moved into the world of Hollywood movies and a new genre of films that had some romance, some comedy and revolved around flimsy plotlines that involved Esther ending up in a bathing suit and in the water.

Despite their relatively limited content and restricted storylines her films were big business in the 30’s and 40’s and she starred with many of the big names of the time including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Ricardo Montalban and Howard Keel.

Esther was under contract with MGM with the studios Louis B. Meyer choosing Williams as their answer to rival studio 20th Century Fox’s sports champion turned movie star, the ice skating queen Sonja Henie.

Esther was signed up with MGM having just had the disappointment of missing out on appearing in the 1940 Olympic Games, which had been cancelled owing to the Second World War. She quickly became a US pin-up after appearing on the covers of lots of movie magazines.

The studio showed a lot of faith in Williams and built a 90ft x 90ft swimming pool on one of their movie sets at a cost of around $250k. As a rough guide a similar project today would probably cost around $24m. Read the rest of this entry »
