At the 84th Academy Awards, stars glistened, glared, and glowed. But, all that glitters isn't gold - or black. Anna Faris and Rose Byrne definitely didn't listen in for that cue, when they neglected to double check attesting to the same gown. Of course, travesty comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colours. Let me begin.

I could've inserted this selection at the conclusion of my piece, but I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say "WTF?" Since when does Borat take vows of silence?

With her red hair and red gown, Emma Stone ensembles a true lady in red. Thanks to her classic beauty and talent, Emma has rightfully earned her place on the red carpet. But while that belt around her waist may accentuate her waist, that belt around her neck does not accentuate - her neck.

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's - superstar! Gwenyth Paltrow is wearing a cape, ahem, shawl to an awards ceremony? Not to mention all dressed in white? Is this a wedding or a Halloween party? Or perhaps life imitates art. That's one way to humbly step up as the queen of movies.

JLo certainly does not show any jello - or have any jello to show, for that matter. That dress is pretty tight and transparent, but JLo is booty-ful enough to pull it off. (Ok, enough for the butt jokes. Moving on...)

At first, I wasn't quite fond of this black and silver piece, but I insist - my heart grew fonder with time. It's a modern spin to your traditional/posh award show frock. The criss-cross neckline aligns Judy Greer's lean shoulders, while the vertical "stripes" further streamline her already svelte physique. Very figure flattering.

And then there are those dresses that don't streamline your body. Melissa McCarthy, you look like you've been swallowed up by a pink parachute - and no, that is not silver lining. Fashion tip: thin belts work wonders, not chunky ones.

The star is always golden - and the case should be no different for Meryl Streep. But, again, all that glitters isn't gold - and what's gold does not always glitter.

Michelle Williams may be no Marilyn Monroe (in real life, anyway), but she sure can execute pinup red lips and a strapless red dud at once. I'm just not too crazy about the waist. It sets the scene for Curly Sue's hair hanging in the shape of a chandelier.

Milla, Milla, look fabulous! I wouldn't wear white after Labour Day, but the sheen fabric and one shoulder warrant an A+ in my book.

Curvy gals do one better. Octavia Spencer beautifully represents the average woman in this short-sleeved rhinestone number. She may be fully covered, but the form fitting nature reveals everything we should see. Sexy and modest.

As for Rooney Mara...are you wearing a cone-shaped bra? Don't rob Madonna of her signature staple - on the red carpet, in front of everyone who's anyone! Of all places - you should know better! Guilty as charged. You are under arrest for committing a fashion felony.

Finally, Rose Byrne. Tsk, tsk. They say Anna Faris copied you, but I say you copied her. Black is slimming - and this dress is too slimming for your own good. Sorry.

2012 may be the year the world ends, but it's also a year Vonny The Ken Doll will end off with a bang! This year will be all about Vonny and the Vonny brand. Vonny entered this year with his own talk show, entertainment website, reality television program, and even his own production company! Here, Vonny talks about his upcoming projects, juicy celeb interviews, Lake Shore, Perez Hilton, and more! Check it out!

V.B. So, you have a new reality show: Vonny in the City. Where can we see it? Should we expect any catfights, tears, celebrity secrets? Tell us more.

V.S. Yes! Right now, we're still in production on Vonny in the City. The show's sizzle reel will premier January 23rd via my website VonnyTheKenDoll.Com. Full length episodes from the first season will be featured on a large Canadian network, but I can't comment right now. We're still in negotiations, but catfights? Yes. Tears? Yes. Celebrity secrets? Definitely! The show basically follows me and my staff, as we take over the city's media scene. It showcases a lot of the operational aspects of my company: days at the office, planning interviews; attending fashion shows, concerts, and events, arranging photoshoots, and - of course - operating my live studio talk show.The viewer really gets a behind-the-scenes look at my life, and what goes into building and operating a multi-media company. They get to see firsthand the tension and drama between a large team of assistants, photographers, website content writers, and more. They'll also get to see the negotiations between a-list artists, and myself as we handle interview bookings and joint deals. I think the easiest comparison to Vonny: In The City would be the Gossip Girl series - only more entertainment industry interaction and, of course, real life!
V.B. Who have you interviewed so far? Who would you say was your best, worst, or most memorable interview, and why? Were you surprised about anything you've learned about these celebs from these interviews?

V.S. Oh, boy. I've done so many interviews at this point. We've done everyone from MTV and Bravo Networks, to Playboy, to music and fashion. I would have to say my best interview was with Janine Jarman from Bravo's Sheer Genius Season 3 series. She's a famous celebrity hairstylist who has worked with stars like Gweneth Paltrow and Lil'Kim. I interviewed her right after her wedding, which was covered by People. She was the least favourite cast member of the show due to what some called a bad attitude, but I had a total different experience with her. We really hit it off. I love that girl and can't wait to visit her salon the next time I'm in California. I think we hit it off so well, because we're just so alike. I could understand her without scrutinizing her personality. She's just a no-apologies, upfront and in-your-face kind of person - and I can relate to that. As far as my worst interview goes, hmmm, that's a tough one. I love working and sitting down with people and artists from all walks of life, so there's never really a "bad" interview in my books. However, you do get those occasional interviewees who do nothing but give one word answers, because they're so nervous. That's always a little difficult, but I'm such a ball of energy that they tend to quickly get over that and become comfortable with me right away. I'd have to say I was most surprised by my Jersey Shore interview with Samantha K. She gave me some secret information about the rest of the Jersey Shore cast that just made me want to dig deeper.
V.B. Going back to the drama - on any one of your shows - could you clue us into any really defining moments that would make us want to watch more?

V.S. Oh yeah. For sure! Even in the show's sizzle reel, you'll get a lot of that. I think one defining moment was when I showed up late to a fashion show and had my front row seats given away. There was a whole lot of drama around that situation. You'll even see me fire one of my assistants in the promotional trailer. I generally have a rule: If I'm not front row, I don't go. A lot of people think of that as me being a diva, but it's actually not. When I go to cover an event, I bring an entourage. I travel with photographers, a camera crew, and a promotional team, who are all used to capture the best footage and interviews, as well as promote the event I'm at. Having said that, the minute I walk through the door, there is an automatic cost to my company. Not to mention I'm interviewing the artist or public figure heading the event and giving them very valuable promotion via my website and large social networking fanbases. I mean, altogether we're talking about an audience of nearly one hundred thousand. On Twitter alone, we have about 40 or 50 thousand fans and followers. So in a nutshell, when I'm doing all of these things for an artist or for an event, the least they could do is give me adequate accomodation. It's not a diva thing; it's a mutual industry respect. The press deserves special treatment. Period. No questions asked. The last thing you want is Vonny The Ken Doll at your event, being treated unprofessionally, having a bad experience, and then going back and tweeting/writing about it. That automatically ruins your reputation and damages your ability to sell yourself or product. I'm a very influential figure. I can either be a benefit or a detriment to you. You'll get to see these types of situations unfold during Vonny: In The City.

V.B. Of course, you also own - how do you conduct your research? Without divulging any blogging secrets, what advice would you give to anyone who wants to get into entertainment blogging or journalism?

V.S. You know this is a question I get asked quite often actually. VonnyTheKenDoll.Com has an entire team of story contributors who stay on top of all of the latest gossip in Hollywood and our native city of Toronto. We have a very TMZ style newsroom approach to our web content. The contributors have weekly target meetings with me where they pitch story ideas and topics. If I like them, I write about them; if I don't, they get scrapped. There are definitely a lot of steps up-and-coming bloggers need to take if they're expecting to build a successful blog or online print source. Our world is becoming more and more tech-based each year. Did we think we'd be able to access our social networking pages through our mobile phones, five or six years ago? It would have sounded like a miracle. In 2012, over 2 billion of the world's 7 billion people will be online. Blogging is becoming the ideal career for those who want a voice, and based off of those numbers, there is definitely a clear market. But, amateur bloggers need to ask themselves, "What can I do to stand out?" It's a very competitive market, and garnering success is not as simple as creating a pretty blog and jotting down your opinions. You yourself need to be just as much of a celebrity as the people you're writing about, in terms of having a presence. That's the first bit of advice I'd give to those wanting to pursue a career in this industry, but you are very right. These tips are definitely secret, and I can't divulge too many of them. I will be writing a book soon though, so you'll have all of the tips you need at your fingertips soon enough.

V.B. Who can we plan to see on The Vonny Show?

V.S. You can plan to see any and everybody under the sun. I have very strong relationships - both locally and abroad - so no one is off limits. As much as I've interviewed public figures from large productions and labels, I would also like to work with up-and -coming talent. This is why you've seen me do an interview with someone from, say, Jersey Shore, and then a little while later, do one with a local artist or rapper. I have a great eye for talent and won't deny it when I find it. My dream interview would be Lil'Kim or Donald Trump.

V.B. Do you guys plan on producing any more shows (whether it be your own or other people's) in Vonny Productions? What kinds of content would you include? Reality shows, talk shows...what about fictional shows or movies?

V.S. Oh yes, for sure. Vonny Productions is definitely something that we will continue to build over the next few years. No matter who I sign with, I'll still be keeping my title as executive or associate producer throughout the project. I mean, to this point, we've really worked magic and have done a great job for a first project production company. However, I'm not naive and do realize the important of bringing a more experienced company on board for Vonny: In The City. There are certain elements to a production that only experience can teach, and that is invaluable. At the present time, we're just continuing work on both my live studio talk show and reality series. We just got an offer for a music video as well. Beyond that, I'd have to say let's just wait and see what else the future has in store. I do see more reality shows for us, though - as well as documentary style filming. I just have a keen sense for developing emotionally strong pieces, and I personally feel you can do that best through real life.

V.B. Artistically speaking, you seem quite versatile. You even have experience in musical theatre and musical critiquing. Tell us a bit more about that. What would you say is your favourite or least favourite genre/album/song/artist, and why?

V.S. Oh, one thousand percent! That's something I think a lot of people don't know about me. Artistically speaking, I've done everything: music, theatre, writing, etc. What separates me from the millions of other people who say they have experience in those fields is the level in which I participated in them at. A lot of people say they can sing, act, or write, but I have legitimate training and credentials in these fields. At the age of 8, I was in vocal lessons at the Royal Conservatory, and by 12, I had started acting landing principal roles in stageplays like The Nutcracker and The Lion King. That's why in my interview with 103.9, the interviewee labelled me as a "child star." I've been in the industry ever since I was a little child. I also had published literature from the poetry genre by the age of 15. It is this exact experience that qualifies me to judge music and talent, hence my doing so many of the music reviews at VonnyTheKenDoll.Com. A lot of people assume I'm just a blogger with something to say; however, that assumption is very wrong. I'm well-versed in all genres and have the experience to match. I'm a critic with a respected opinion. My favourite genre of music is - of course - pop, and second would be hip hop. If I'm judging a pop single, I'm looking for strong vocals, and of course something that is commercially viable. If it's a hip hop single, I'm looking for flow, delivery, lyrical content, and punchlines. I have no least favourite genre. Vonny The Ken Doll listens to everything (laughs). My favourite album and artist would have to be Lil'Kim and her 2000 album Notorious K.I.M. Favourite song? Hmmm. I'm going to have to pick my own theme song from the show! (laughs)Yeah, the Vonny: In The City theme song written and recorded by an artist named Mike Black. Least favourite song: I have too many to list!

V.B. You also appeared on the TV program Scare Tactics. Describe your role on the show.

V.S. My role in Scare Tactics was simple: The unsuspecting idiot (laughs). About a year ago, I was pranked on that same show by one of my cousins. I don't know what came of the actual episode, but I do know I was scared out of my witts! I ran probably about 6 blocks and left the entire production scene in attempt to get away from some the people who were chasing me. They all later turned out to be actors! I was so upset, but nonetheless, I ended up calming down and meeting all of the producers and production staff backstage. They were all very professional and showed me a great time. One thing they said was, had the situation been real, I would have survived and gotten away! They were shocked at how quick my survival skills kicked in, because I outsmarted them into thinking I had to use the washroom before fleeing the scene (laughs).

V.B. All the exposure you've attained - your website being featured in the National Post, etc. Would you say Lake Shore facilitated any of your success in a sense, or would you attribute your built fan base to your own strategy of social networking and word of mouth? Speaking of Lake Shore, what ended up going on with that?

V.S. I don't really want to answer that question, to be honest. I mean, common sense dictates that Lake Shore gave me a platform to get my character out there, but I wouldn't say that everything I have today was because of Lake Shore - because it's one thing to get your foot in the door, but it's another to keep it there - and that's what I've done. Since then I've carved out my own lane. Vonny The Ken Doll is an entire brand now, and I owe that to nobody but myself. I've hosted nightclubs and events, had cameos on other shows, appeared in papers like the National Post, have been interviewed at radio stations, etc. I even have a jewelry line coming out this Spring through an American company called NB'S Closet. I've worked hard and fought all the way to the top. I don't know what happened to Lake Shore. I heard it got cancelled, but I don't really follow news unless it's pertinent.

V.B. Would you say your comparisons to Perez Hilton are somewhat valid?

V.S. No, I don't think they're all that valid at all, to be honest. Perez is definitely someone who has created a successful pop culture website in the world, and I commend him on that. But, Vonny The Ken Doll is NOT the next Perez Hilton. I have a live studio talk show with a live audience, an online print source, as well as a production company and reality television show. What I have is a multimedia brand. I've also studied journalism in an accredited post secondary institution. My work transcends just "blogging." Not to mention, people take my work seriously; they don't just read my material to laugh or make fun of me.

V.B. Last but certainly not least, there's the drama off screen. Your personal life - family, friends? Any boyfriends or boy toys? (Hope that's not too much of a personal question). Do we see any of this on your reality show, and how "real" is any of it or how much of the reality is depicted?

V.S. Of course, how could we forget? An interview is just not complete with a little bit of the personal information, right? (laughs) You know, early on, I learned that making a presence in this industry meant bringing attention to your family as well. When I did Canada's Jersey Shore spinoff, there was a lot of talk. My family was constantly asked questions by their peers and relatives. Sometimes, that kind of attention becomes stressful or unwanted when you're simple folk. I come from a family of good ol' Canadians, so to speak. They're simple people who make livings, pay taxes, and raise their children. They don't have any desire for the spotlight. So because of that, I don't like to talk about my family too much or drag them into anything. Despite not wanting attention, they're 100% supportive of everything I do, so there's no drama in my family at all. They know this is what I want to do with my life, and they're there with me every step of the way proud. Friends are another story. Ever since my brand has taken off, I've lost and gained tons of friends. It seems as if the higher up you get, the less and less real friends you have. I can't speak for everybody else working in this industry, but a lot of my friends started to change - and I guess - showed their real colours. People become jealous easily, and jealousy has no place in a good friendship. At this point, I'm only interested in meeting genuine people who don't have hidden agendas or ulterior motives. Relationships? (Laughs). I love the way you worded that! Now unfortunately, I can't really give you much here, and that's not because it's too much of a personal question; but, it's more of the same situation with my family. Not everyone you encounter or come across is comfortable with having their life depicted on camera for thousands of people. What I will say is I am in a relationship. I am very much taken (laughs), but by someone who doesn't wish to be featured on camera. That's something that I respect and understand whole heartedly. Having said that, you won't see my personal relationships on camera, but you will see some brief day-to-day events and activities with my family now and again. To answer your last question, the show is 100% real. I mean, I won't lie; certain events are chosen for production purposes, certain locations and times etc., but the daily operations and communication between the characters are very real!

At the 69th annual Golden Globe's, various female (and male) celebrities selected their wear to depict simple elegance. Yet, some of their choices prove that you can even screw up the simplest of outfits, the simplest of valuable designer gowns. Here's my food for thought.

Charlize Theron usually isn't nominated as a fashion victim in my reviews, or any reviews for that matter. Despite the theory that women with bodies like her's happen to look good in anything (including ketchup?), Charlize only got the top part right. You can still spot a long, lean smidge of her fit leg, but the drapery of the bottom half cuts across mid-thigh (for apparently no reason at all), when it should really just connect or at least flow out with the rest of the gown. No, just eliminate the drapery altogether. The drapery doesn't belong in this gown, especially considering the drapery is literally almost separate from the bottom of the gown altogether.

(As stunning as she is), Evan Rachel Wood somehow pulls off a typically unfavourable mermaid look. The forest green really compliments the glitter and wood-siness mesh appearance of the fabric. However for the rest of Wood's competition, all that glitters isn't "gold"...

Jessica Chastain shouldn't be mistaken for The Help in this shapely yet wholesome white dress. The darker waist cincher and translucent turtleneck really make this decision stand out, but all-dressed-in-white -nd with such a virginal dress length and immaculate neckline (as in no neckline) - can still mesh with the rest in a bridal shop.

Lady in pink? Natalie Portman could've possibly gotten away with this dress, if it weren't for the awkward fabric sticking out at her booty. Wait, is it an optical illusion or the real deal? We'll never know.

Nicole Kidman transforms herself into an Egyptian princess with this intricately patterned criss cross gown. I say Miss Kidman made a smooth transition, a famous yet royal act.

Paula Patton marks the above average, exceeding the usual standard for those of most body types and skin complexions: to look flattering in an unflattering colour. Orange and yellow are both stubborn hues, but Paula manages to pull one of those hues off without looking too "sunny."

Again with the outdoor colours...Sarah Michelle Gellar attempts to emulate the sky in this oversized, strapless flop of blue and white. Unless the purpose of this dress was to to camouflage her bikini-ready bod, then - well - there is no purpose to this dress.

When Canadian superstars like Drake, Justin Bieber, and Nickelback appear at an American Music Awards show, you know Canadians have reset norms for the mainstream industry. Not only do these Canadians take pride in their culture and alternative paths to fame i.e. YouTube, mixtapes, television programs, etc., they exude confidence in their eclectic and original fashion choices. But, one thing's for sure. Whether American or Canadian, older like JLo grinding in a barely there suit or younger like Sophie Grace and her sister belting out Nicki Minaj in pink tutus, every walk of life in the 2011 AMA's caused reaction - for better or worse.

Heidi Klum's a mom who's definitely still has it going on! Rocking a silver minidress (is it cutout? ah, the mystery), Heidi can show off her toned legs and still leave enough to the imagination.

Jennifer Morrison is white hot in blonde hair and a white dress! Actually, it's more cream. But, with her subtle waves and plunging neckline, Jennifer can still keep it simple - without the monotony!

While some can pull off simple sophistication, others may just be more naturally inclined to create complicated chaos. Katy Perry strikes a pose, assertive with her pink hair and flattering frock. Is it all written in Chinese, Japanese? Who knows - or cares? Katy's famously big bust and small waist take centre stage.

There's no doubt Mary J. Blige looks amazing, considering we can still tell while she's hiding in this overwhelming animal print. Not even a hint of her strong gams or solid stomach. Shame.

Speaking of overwhelming, Phoebe Price's "gown" - with faux fur? (I'm hoping) and unnecessary stripes running in every direction - is just too much. Too wild to be a wedding dress, but too tame to be a Lady Gaga outfit.

Damn, they're actually cute! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez surely emulate some retro couple with their slick hairstyles and upscale attire. You know what they say - "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" - and the young ones have it made in old school Hollywood glamour. Impressive!

Winning three awards, Taylor Swift dresses the part - playing the country/pop princess she is. This strapless, sparkling glass of champagne is no "love story," though. Both Taylor and her dress are the real deal.

While she may be only 23, Mandy already exhibits Marilyn Monroe-esque characteristics. Like Marilyn, Mandy can simultaneously become the curvaceous girl next door and sweet sex symbol. However, Mandy integrates herself not only as her own person but as her own authentic 2011 version of Marilyn. She is not as known as Marilyn – of course – but she makes sure her face and voice are known. She is outspoken, (literally) tattooed with her thoughts, and doesn’t deceive with a corset or even much with photoshop. And, most importantly, she is influential. Women can both envy and admire her, because not only is Mandy irreplaceable; she does not represent an impossible, airbrushed fantasy.

Mandy stems from a striking genetic collaboration of Russian and Chinese. In her late teens, she started off in a wholesome bridal magazine. Still barely legal tattooed flesh , she successfully broke the mold of a conventional Hooters girl. Despite the fact that she challenges Playboy’s Barbie doll standards, she still aroused, titillated, and stimulated in the Toronto division of the 2010 Girls of Playboy Golf. She even debuted her natural female form in the erotic book “Confessions Sauvages.”

Whether she’s causing a stir in SHARP magazine for breaking Facebook “laws” or playing a riot in American Pie: Beta House, Mandy promotes her talent through various mediums. She has been elected as a feature guest multiple times this year: in the 2011 World of Motorcycles Expos (London and Kitchener), 2011 Super Show/International Bike Show, and the National Motorcycle Show (Toronto). She has graced the backpage as a Toronto Sun Sunshine Girl and a couple of times, either as feature or cover, of The Rider’s Mag (two consecutive months in a row – that’s a record, no?)

You can catch Mandy in the upcoming film Breakaway, playing a club dancer in a Ludacris music video. Or in a few calendars, including her own! And you can check out her food for thought here – in our exclusive interview. Here, Mandy talks about Hooters, adult magazines, cheaters, bullies, and that famous Ludacris music video. Check it out!

Being a Hooters Girl

I actually really enjoyed working at Hooters. I did SO well; everybody loved me and my tattoos! But, back then, I had fewer than I do now. It's a shame to say but, after about 3 months I realized that these girls were not only ditzy but much more friendly with the managers than any employee should be. Guys did try to pick me up, but not as much as you might think - nothing over the top. The managers were bigger pigs than the customers. Not every girl had big breasts. I will say the only thing that might have bothered me was the way the shorts were made with the elastic band did push out my love handles. (Laughs). But, what can I do?

Her Ideal Wedding

My ideal wedding would be extra glamorous! I can't wait for my wedding day. It will be all white and baby blue, my favorite color. Not TOO many people - close friends and family, of course. It will be a Russian and Serbian mixed wedding, with all foods from those nationalities. I am half Russian, and my boyfriend - who I am planning to marry - is Serbian. If I ever get rich enough, I would love for Shania Twain to sing at my wedding.

Posing for Adult Magazines

I will admit I have thought about Penthouse and Hustler, only because I was so desperate to get a cover on a magazine - ANY magazine. I was offered the cover of some adult magazines, but I thought about it, and I think my beauty is more than the raunchy, sexy kind. Even though I could pull that off, I am very versatile. But no, especially since I got with my current boyfriend, he wouldn't like that, and I think I would be disrespecting him if I were to do that now. Playboy though I would still do, and my boyfriend would not like it, but he understands how much it would mean to me. The title of being in Playboy is very big in the modeling industry, it opens a lot of doors, but it does close some at the same time too!

Being Too “Curvy” for the Industry

However, I have given up on Playboy. I don't respect them as much as I used to. I have applied over 50 times, attended live casting calls, and sent pictures to them online. They will not accept me, and I know why. I am too curvy/pudgy and tattooed for them. They are very close minded. They used to say they like the natural look, but now all I see are fake breasts all over their pages. They don't open their minds to the versatility of beauty all over the world. It comes in all shapes and sizes, but they don't see that.

I applied for some MMA Ring Girl jobs; some of them did like me, but one of the recruiters replied to me saying that they love my look but they would consider me, if I flattened my belly a bit more. If you look at my pictures, I have no six pack, but there's not much to flatten! I am FAR from perfect, I know I could have a banging body if I worked out a little more, but I have no need to. I like the way I am. We do not have to be bony or six packed-out to be models. It's just not like that anymore; people need to open their eyes a little more.

Modeling Scams

Any agency that asks for money is a scam; everyone knows that. Companies, not so much as certain photographers to look out for. If you are going to shoot with a photographer, always ask for at least 5 references from other models he's shot with, and ask them about their experience with him. Also, I am not comfortable with home studios but I do make exceptions, provided references or if friends of mine have shot with him. If you sense any weirdness or inappropriateness with a photographer, always trust your gut instinct. If you can, bring a friend with you for safety.

Being Too “Sexy for Facebook”

My images were all tasteful and in bikini or lingerie. I have haters; all of us models do. They get pissed, because their boyfriends are probably viewing our pages. Or they are insecure and hate to see me getting attention and being confident, so to make themselves feel better, they report me so they don't have to see me anymore. I've gotten used to it now, but it is annoying.

Her Calendar(s)

My calendar is going to have my modeling shots - nothing too fancy. It's my first, so it's pretty simple! I am in two calendars for 2013: Auto Body Hotties and Asian Mystique, which will be sold in Calendar Club stores next year.

Asian Women

Honestly, besides the perverted reasons men have for liking Asian women, I think it's the exotic features, especially with me being mixed (Chinese and Russian). It's the slant in the eyes, like with cat eyes, and I guess it's just something different next to the plain American girl-next-door look. Something different is always good! HINT HINT PLAYBOY!


There is nothing more I hate in life than CHEATERS. I am extremely strict, when it comes to cheating. Online cheating is the worst. It's so available and condoned it's disgusting, especially that bullshit; that should NOT even be legal! BUT, if a guy is willing to cheat on his girlfriend, then he is worthless and should not be with her. I believe if you really, truly love somebody, you wouldn't even have to think twice about cheating on them. The thought should not even cross your mind.

I feel cheaters cheat because they are shitty people, evil in a way. They know they will be hurting their gf/bf and do it anyway, so in that sense, they are evil to me. They are obviously insecure as well; some guys/girls do it because they need to feel that they can still get whatever they want.

The cheated-on: they have to move on and set rules in their next relationship. My current boyfriend? I know he would never cheat on me. How do I know? He has been my best friend since we were 17, and the type of man he is - he is just a good soul and thinks of cheating the same way I do.

So, maybe putting a little fear in them might help, but that doesn't mean they won't do it. Bottom line: if they love you, they won't. If they don't love you, they will. I think there should be a law against cheaters. They should be locked up for 5 years minimum; that should teach them.


I hate bullying. It's so cruel, and it really breaks my heart when I hear about kids committing suicide (as a result of bullying). The only way to really deal with this is leave it up to the parents. It's how these kids are raised that make them cruel bullies. Everything stems from home and how you were raised. Other than that, there needs to be harsher punishment. When someone bullies, especially if they bully a certain child to the point of suicide, they should be put in juvenile jail to scare the wits out of them. (That suicide) is indirect murder to me. I am also a firm believer that you treat others the way you want to be treated, and what goes around comes around. I would bully that bully back and see how they like it, but then it would just end in a bully war, but that is what I would do.

What Really Happened in the Ludacris Video

Well, this story will show you another terrible side of the modeling industry. Whores get dibs.

I was told I was getting a lead role, being next to Ludacris and what not. Then I find out an unattractive set of twins get that role, because they were apparently sucking off the talent manager. I was still right behind Ludacris in the video, but you can't even see me. At the end of the shoot, I said something to the guy that got me the job. And you know what he told me? That's just how the business is...

This is something I already knew, but the point of putting a PRETTY girl next to the star in a video is to (grab the attention of the audience). I do say that there is beauty in everybody, but some are better looking than others, and when you are told that, you expect what you were promised.

So there was my confirmation - from the talent manager himself. Needless to say I was very irritated.

Coming Up Next!

Most stores distribute clothes that flatter just one body type. Despite the fact that we all own different bodies, many pieces are reserved only for the tall and thin supermodel. The number of "regular" stores outweigh the existing "plus-size" stores; but even though we have both (hey, we can't run around naked!), each store's attire is created in mind for both the extremely large plus-size or extremely taut "regular."

So, where's our in-betweens? What if you're not a size 2 or 20? If you have big boobs, forget squeezing into that buttoned blouse. Proud claimer of a booty? How did you get in 'em jeans? (No, really. How did you?) Or even with those thunder thighs? Well, the Kardashian sisters can provide their physical answers to these questions.

These ladies know how hard it is to find cute clothes for their buxom bods. After all, they're famous for their bods. And, yes, they may be rich and able to afford custom-made designer duds, but that doesn't mean every other girl can. So they designed inexpensive Kardashian Kollection SEARS attire, the answers to YOUR body/fashion issues. And it all starts with what's underneath.

Whether you're a statuesque Khloe, a petite Kourtney, or a bootylicious Kim, you can work your wonders in their line for outside (or inside) the bedroom. Need underwear to skim over wide hips? Check out the stretchy-comfy undies Kourtney's wearing in the above pic. Want to draw attention to your upper half? Opt for the girly pink lace bustier Khloe's in. It subtly lifts cleavage and camouflages tummy. Or are you blessed with a behind like Kim's? The corset-like top and bottom expose a tiny waist to better empha-size sexy fuller curves.

While these supermodels may not model close to your body type, there's no doubt these Kardashian-friendly pieces won't! Slender-ize an athletic bottom half in these black tights, or lengthen a shorter torso in the accompanying sweater! Switch from coy to conservative in the above pink dress that tames voluptuous sex appeal, while still accentuating a narrow waist. Or control yet amplify a bigger bust with this animal-printed blazer.

Speaking of animal prints, the Kardashians make it possible for curvier femmes to lounge in prints without adding unnecessary curvage. To avoid havocing too much busy-ness in the style, like Kourtney, you can balance out a savage blazer with human-wearing pants. Or unleash the hourglass like Khloe did with a leopard print v-neck jumpsuit that points and runches to the middle, while flowing around the rest of your figure. Finally, you can just decide to hold it all in with Kim's skin tight/animal skin dress.
