Can Levy & Lopez play that love game?

jlo and william levy

when it comes to hot and sexy Latinos, many yummy men come to mind. Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Derek Jeter, I can go on and on and on. But when it comes to steamy and sweaty only one man can put you in a trance. Can you guess? He has dirty blonde hair, piercing eyes, perky pecks, and Oh-So toned up thighs! WILLIAM LEVY! “YUMMMM!”

When rumors spread of the break up between William Levy and Elizabeth Gutierrez, all I could say is “AGAIN?” What is it with these celebrity couples? How did it go from being their love-at-first-sight to becoming their guest-over-night? What burns out their fire of endless desire? Many celebrity break ups occur by only two reasons. One, their contractual commitments. Filming, producing, and performing all play a big part when it comes to building a strong trust foundation in a relationship. And two, depending on the status of the celebrity, ie.. A-Lister w/ a C-lister, the insecurities are a nightmare. That optimistic climb up the ladder, not necessarily moving at the pace they projected or their partner had hoped for. Leaving them all the way back there when they are all the way up here.. “HEELLOO DOWN THERE!” (Echo)

Whatever it may be, these couples are made aware clearly by their family,friends and of course their annoying publicists of the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’t’ when it comes to dating in the industry. Passing judgment of it being portrayed the real deal, a ‘red carpet romance’ or a ‘pow in the face’ publicity stunt.

All this dramatization doesn’t apply to everyone. See, as I mentioned before, the Ricky’s, and Enrique’s and the Levy’s of the world don’t fall into that publicity stunt to stay afloat. They don’t need it. Truth is, no matter who they date we at one time or another, have been caught kissing the TV or smooching the Iphone for one of them.

Well, it seems like we aren’t the only ones sending love sparks through technology. There is a rumor that Cuban Casanova, William Levy has been caught cuddling with the infamous for her ‘Big Booty’ Jennifer Lopez. Seems, that Casper has really just become her friendly ghost.

JLo and Levy met shooting her music video “I’m Into You.” Their chemistry was definitely noticeable on and off the set. Both with a track record of mixing business with pleasure, do you think this is a match made in heaven or a race for the red carpet to kick off the new year?

MARC ANTHONY : THIRD TIME THE CHARM?

jennifer-lopez-marc-anthony-engagement

Marc Anthony never goes out of style. Shannon De Lima, 26, his on again, off again model girlfriend from Venezuela, is now going to be the next wife of this iconic singer.

Marc, 46, was previously married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres from 2000-2004, and Jennifer Lopez from 2004-2014. Marc has five children. The timing was curious as it was announced days after excerpts from Jennifer Lopez book touched on the relationship with Marc. An example below.

“It’s hard to bring up all this stuff because it’s like why are we talking about this because it is in the past, but we had a family and we did plan on being together for 40 years,”

she confided. “He used to talk about that all of the time and that was our goal, so that day I had to give up that dream and I think that was the hardest part of it.”

The wedding is scheduled for this November in the Dominican Republic. As Jennifer appears to be having problems dealing with being alone, Marc continues to move forward.

Faja Addiction Taken Too Far?

For the last seven years designer and fetish model Kelly Lee Dekay has been using a tight laced corset to reshape her body. In only 6 months she shrunk her waist by 30 inches and now sports a tiny 16-inch waist. Below is a picture of a 16 inch softball …..ummmm yeah that is the size of her waist.

She mentions that she was a tomboy growing up, but accentuated her curves as a way to emulate her favorite female comic book characters, like Storm. Dekay said “I fell in love with the brocade, the zipping sound the laces made as it got tighter and the overall beauty of a corset. I love the different silhouettes different types of corsets create. There’s something very romantic about it.

Doctors have warned that too much tight-lacing can strain organs, compress rib cages, and cause serious health issues with the respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems. However the 27-year-old New York resident claims she visits her doctor regularly and is in “perfect health.” Dekay admits wearing a corset makes it difficult for her to climb stairs or lift heavy objects, but she has worn it during other physical activities.

I actually did hiking in my corset and that’s very dangerous. I also played soft ball in a corset once, that was an interesting feeling, but I don’t go to the gym in a corset — that’s really dangerous because I do weight lifting,” she said, according to the Daily Mail. “But if I do want to do something extreme, I don’t limit myself. If I have to be out of my corset, then I’m out of it.

Surprising Kelly Lee does not have the smallest waist. Cathie Jung’s 15-inch waist holds the current Guinness World Record for smallest waist.

Did William Levy’s First Hollywood Role Get a “D” for Dud?

William-Levy-hot-william-levy-gutierrez-9311251-1280-890

Actor and model William Levy attempted to bring his sexy persona to life in the Tyler Perry Film, “The Single Moms Club,” playing the role of the bartender in the film. Let’s be real ladies..

What do you see? A sexy Latino in a fitted shirt with ridiculous abs that glisten through the cotton T-shirt while serving you drinks. Meanwhile you’re praying he gives you his number when he gives you the napkin… (yummm!)

This third-place “Dancing With the Stars” winner, who was named People en Español’s “sexiest man of the year” and is sometimes referred to as the Latino Brad Pitt, has earned a majority of his income by flexing his biceps, acting in soaps, posing for calender photo shoots and endorsements of fruit-flavored Pepsi Next sodas.

What part of the camera didn’t like William? Too many scripted lines? Not enough lines?
Is he losing his hotness? Or are there too many haters? What do you think?

From the Orphanage to the Runway

Fior Mendez is a 5-foot-10-inch stunner with flawless chocolate-hued skin, who at initial glance can easily invoke feelings of envy and the need to run to the closest gym. Not to mention, she walked the recent Harlem’s Fashion Row show like a pro, which is hard to believe since just a few weeks ago Mendez was living in an orphanage in the Dominican Republic.

“I’m overwhelmed emotionally, it’s a dream,” Mendez told TODAY.com. “I couldn’t imagine that a person like me would be doing this in New York City.”

Mendez spent most of her life homeless and was 13-years-old when her mother could no longer take care of her and her four other siblings. The decision landed the teenager at the Orfanato Niños de Cristo orphanage. Over the next eight years, Mendez blossomed into a beautiful young lady with aspirations of becoming a supermodel–despite having lost all contact with her biological family. After receiving an invitation from a friend of the orphanage’s founder to come live with them in New York City, Mendez finally got her chance to make those dreams a reality.

Now 22-years-old and living in the Big Apple for a matter of weeks, Mendez is already making her mark in the fashion industry. She is signed with Signature Talent Agency and is steady booking major gigs like walking in the HFR show for fashion designer Nzinga Knight.

And beyond her beauty, Mendez is also exhibiting some model behavior–but not the cell phone throwing kind. She hopes to inspire the children back at the orphanage she used to call home.

“I want to be a light for those kids,” Mendez said. “I want to show them that if you are dedicated, you can do something, and that even if you’re sad, you always have hope.”

Why You Should Be Professional When You’re Modeling

A statement from KUSH LLC & Other Entertainment Industry Professionals

(June 22, 2012) — For the past three (3) years, I and other industry professionals have been supportive of the Nikki Rich Models (NRM) movement. We have helped promote their models, place them into mainstream publications, and helped forward their movement as a whole.

However, as of yesterday, we are forced to take a different stance. It is not like us to indulge in “Twitter beef” or take it as a reason to decide against working with someone, however, yesterday’s Twitter episodes from Nikki Rich Models’ Brittany Dasani & Sophia Christina have left us no choice.

The entertainment industry is not a business for the weak-minded, or the faint of heart. Not everyone is going to like everyone, and certainly, we don’t expect two people to get along all the time. Flare-ups do, indeed, happen. It isn’t preferred, but we are human & therefore flawed.

However, when a model continuously – after several attempts to warn her against doing so – attacks professionals in the business who have done nothing but assist in their careers – when that same model has been through FOUR different agencies because of her unprofessional attitude and behavior – when that same model then rounds up other models & encourages them to engage in the same unprofessional behavior (as Brittany Dasani has done), it no longer becomes about “business” or personality differences.

In an attempt to eradicate and settle a war of words between mutual colleagues, I from KUSH LLC personally requested that NRM formally and publicly via Twitter intervene and maintain control of their client Brittany Dasani. I have been party to and witness of internal emails attempting to force an unnecessary interaction between parties in dispute as a method of resolution. This industry is entirely built on relationships. If two parties in this industry cannot co-exist they should be able to out of respect be able to refrain from public displays of their disdain for one another. Unfortunately the attitude and response to my request for a public intervention were not to my satisfaction and these antics have continued from Brittany Dasani, unabated, and even nastier & more unprofessional than before. This is akin to a lack of institutional control and I will not allow our hard work to be muddled or affiliated with any company that cannot keep reins and control of their clientele.

Because of this, & other unprofessional behavior we have witnessed, we will no longer associate or co-sign anything done by the Nikki Rich Models, Brittany Dasani, or Sophia Christina, and we encourage other professionals to do the same.
There are many other modeling agencies that can offer more professional girls than these, whom we will be happy to refer.

Model Rosa Acosta Announces Retirement

Video vixen Rosa Acosta has revealed plans to pencil in a “retirement” date, ending a brief run in the urban modeling world to focus on bigger and better things.

For the twenty-something year-old, her days of being an urban model are on the verge of ending.

I have had the opportunity to work with so many people including one of the best photographers in the world, Terry Richardson. Actually a good friend of mine Vanessa Veasley, I was the one that sent her stuff to Supreme and they loved her,” Rosa said in an interview. “It’s an honor to bring two darker skinned girls to Supreme. They are amazing. I’m working with Pink Dolphin and a few other companies. I’m happy that I’ve been able to do all of these things. I’m about to retire from all of the urban modeling because we get old.” (The Well Versed)

If all goes accordingly, Acosta sees herself focusing more on fitness and Spanish television.

It’s really easy in this business to spend ten years doing the same thing and not branch out. So in order for me to branch out I have to stop doing this and focusing on some other ventures. I’m not just going to quit totally, but little by little. But I think that this will be my last year doing the sexy shoots. I’m going to focus on fitness and Spanish TV.” (The Well Versed)

Recently, former video vixen Esther Baxter talked to SOHH about her past modeling days.

I haven’t done urban modeling for six years now, or videos, and yet I’m still a household name. A lot of people still know who Esther Baxter is and they still know, “Oh yeah, she was one of the top ones a lot of girls look up to.” They know all of that and so I’ve been able to keep that name and image even though I haven’t done the modeling or music videos like I used to for awhile outside of recently doing the KING magazine cover. The reason we ended up doing that is because there was such a high demand of people from the fans that wanted to see me. They really wanted to see me on the cover of KING. Other than that, I’ve really fallen back to focus on my career, my family and my son. I have a four year-old son now and my focus is really getting into acting.” (SOHH Guest Star)

Back in 2010, Rosa opened up on her battle with anorexia and bulimia.

Nevertheless, “all the qualities” became “almost all” when at my 13 years old I weighed 125 pounds, which made me undergo bulimia for two years and anorexia for like seven years,” she revealed. “When I remember about those days, I merely can’t understand what went through my head. The image that I used to see reflected on the mirror was more of a monster than of a young girl. I was in a state where nothing was more important to me than to “look good” and if that meant to be sick I wouldn’t care…No one has detested me so much that wish to do as much damage to me as the one I did to myself by taking my body to the extreme, exaggerating the physical workout, not eating or drinking fluids for days, taking laxatives and punishing myself in any possible way…One day I thought I was worthless. Today I am at ease with myself and I have learned that to feel loved and to be accepted is something that needs to start with yourself. You are only one step away from being in the best physical state of your life! What are you waiting for??” (VIBE)
