Katherine Heigl

"I pride myself on being kind. But that's not to say that I don't have my moments of being a diva. Everybody has bad moments." Kathering Heigl
Katherine Marie Heigl is about the same height as me. She was born in Washington DC but now lives in Los Angeles with her musician husband Josh Kelley and adopted Korean daughter Nancy Leigh Kelley. Katherine admits her worst habit is her smoking. She admits she has hips and a derriere but wouldn't consider exercising if she weren't in the entertainment industry.
Katherine started her career as a child model but has always preferred acting. Her mother became her manager once she divorced Katherine's father and moved to California. Katherine was once signed to the famous William Morris Agency.
Just like a true bombshell, her favourite hobbies are: Music, dancing, knitting, reading, writing, art, television and movies.
Her ideal role is the part Joanne Woodward played as a woman with multiple personality disorder in The Three Faces Of Eve or the role of Gilda which was made famous by Rita Hayworth.

Champagne for flies

I was sitting with a very dear friend at my favourite french bistrot when I realised that a tiny fly had drowned in my delicious champagne cocktail. Then I saw that not one, but two little flies had drowned in my friends cocktail. We realised these tiny flies were all around us. This soured our evening quite a bit as I didn't expect flies to be inside such a lovely cafe whilst I'm dining. I don't think I'll return there until winter is here and those pesky tiny flies have gone away.

Elizabeth's Krupp


The Year at Sotheby's and Parke-Barnett 1967-68: "A diamond ring by Harry Winston, New York $305,000. From the collection of the late Vera Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach. The highest price ever paid (at the time) at auction for a diamond ring."

Elizabeth Taylor bought this diamond for herself. What a woman, treating herself to something beautiful! It weighs 33.19 carats (the stone) and she's worn it in every film she's appeared in since. This includes an episode of The Simpsons, in which her eye is reflected in the image of the diamond whilst she's polishing her Academy Awards.

You see it, you love it and you can afford it, then you should buy it. You really are worth it!

Saint Valentine

It's the day of lovers. Twenty-four hours of love, passion, lust, sex, heartbreak, lost love, loneliness, sensuality, desire, past loves, future love and heartbreak.

Happy Valentines Day. We still love to believe in love!

I don't believe life is meant to be perfect. For anyone. Nobody has a perfect life. Every being on Earth has wants, needs, tribulations, disappointments, heartbreak, loss, insecurities, neuroses and doubts. It's a great myth, I'd love to believe that life could be perfect. But love makes everything 'feel' perfect.

For partners, I wish you much joy on this St Valentines Day. For singles, I wish you great love from within. I hope you spend a little time alone and congratulate yourselves on your own achievements. May it be your mind, your body or your soul. Cherish your loved ones including your animals. Let them know how much you care.

Bombshells - live to love and love to be in love!!

Things Are Looking Up

My little Jerry boy (my beautiful, adorable pet bird) will be going on a lovely little holiday at a friends' place whilst I jet off to the West Coast to visit family and friends in April. Holidays in my hometown bring to mind sleeping in, massages, good food, shopping, beaches, cafes, little islands off the coast, wineries, whales and bushwalks.

I've also made a booking to cruise the South Pacific early next year on an exquisite new boat. I love to sail. I have to say that my favourite activities on board are the art auctions and the high tea. Again, I won't be taking my little bird on that either. Poor little home body!!

It's good to travel. Escpecially when one is single! I love to explore. Bombshells are constantly travelling and delighting in exotic holidays. However we travel and wherever we go, we do it with style.

So much to look forward to this year!! What a bon voyage!!!

Tonight I'm watching an old film I've watched already a few times before. Not a wonderful film. But I love Monica Bellucci.
