Ryan Seacrest dating South African model

Dominique Piek Sports Illustrated cover modelRyan Seacrest is dating Sports Illustrated model Dominique Piek. The American Idol host, who split from Julianne Hough (24) in April after three years of dating, has reportedly moved on with the 27-year-old South African beauty, who is also newly single after ending her one-year relationship with Star Trek Into Darkness actor Chris Pine in April.

A source close to Piek told In Touch magazine: “She and Ryan have been out to dinner together twice in one week recently.

The insider said that while the duo are still getting to know each other, Seacrest (38) “gets along really well” with the brunette model.

The TV presenter was recently overheard telling pals he has been “loving it” since he became single again, and he was previously spotted taking a gorgeous blonde companion into the DJ booth with him in Los Angeles earlier in June.

Seacrest and Safe Haven actress Julianne are believed to split, because he didn’t want to get married and take their relationship to the next level. The professional dancer got tired of waiting for an engagement ring and so called the romance off.

A source previously said: “He just wouldn’t propose. However, Ryan was this close to looking for rings. Julianne is the only girl Ryan has allowed himself to get serious with.”

Melinda Bam – FHM 100 Sexiest 2013 winner

This was a shock for me because I believe it breaks new ground – Melinda Bam named Sexiest in the World!

Melinda Bam Miss South Africa 2012Former Miss South Africa Melinda Bam is the 2013 FHM Sexiest Woman in the World. Bam finished ahead of local hotties Minki van der Westhuizen and Lee-Ann Liebenberg, among others, and ahead of international stars like Kate Upton, Arianny Celeste and Mila Kunis.

The former Miss South Africa was awarded the honour at a party at the Skyroom Live in Joburg on Friday night.

Bam finished ahead of local hotties such as Genevieve Morton, Minki van der Westhuizen, Lee-Ann Liebenberg and Nicole Meyer and international super babes like Kate Upton, Arianny Celeste and Mila Kunis.

Bam, who was placed 13 on last year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, featured in the 2010 FHM calendar. On Friday Bam said it was an honour.

“It feels a bit surreal because I can still remember in 2010 when I did the calendar, I was on the 100 list but thought… okay… winning, never going to happen – and now it did! I’m so thrilled,” said Bam.

Bam, who was crowned Miss SA in 2011, said she had enjoyed posing for the FHM calendar, but it was very different to what she had expected.

“I have always had my reservations about FHM because I have never seen myself as someone pushing her limits to try and be sexy. But I must say, having the team that I shot with was great because they all understood what I will and will not do,” said Bam.

The 24-year-old blonde bombshell now has two top titles under her belt – FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World and Miss South Africa.

“It’s quite weird and flattering.”

She is also the new national executive for Miss SA and will be helping with some big and exciting changes this year.

She is also a partner in Model Mentality, a series of workshops hosted for young women. And she is looking at designing clothes for Bambshell. “It’s a swimwear range that will give women of all shapes and sizes the confidence to embrace their bodies.”

So what can we expect next?

“Not to disappear. I know God has made me a mover and shaker, and I will remain just that.” – source Independent On Saturday

Not Just A Pretty Face

Here’s a guest post by Eda Rose. She answers a burning question that’s come up many times before in working with models, why are the hottest girls the most insecure?

Eda RoseWhen coming from a girl, these words are either spoken by an unfortunate looking lass making fun of herself or on the other hand from lovely lady who communicates this in a more stern way and who feels somewhat victimised by her looks. Popular opinion is that the latter just screams insecurity and this is true in most cases. For instance pretty girls may have a sense of humour about this sort of thing too. However, let’s looks at those who feel the need to defend their intellect.

Society can take beautiful girls for granted, yes and it often happens that good looking women are assumed to be in the successful positions they’re in because of their looks and have not and do not work hard for what they have achieved. This does not just stop at the work place but infiltrates all the way through to their social and private life. Beauty often attracts compliments and wonderful gestures which is great, but the same sentiment can invite much unwanted analysis towards the recipient and the aforementioned criticism.

Eda Rose guest bloggerAn example of this are Fashion models who for one, fit the standards set for being beautiful and are paid for it YET they’re often rife with insecurities leading to drug problems and eating disorders. It would seem the more importance drawn to one’s looks, the more critical they become towards themselves. Often this leads to a change in career paths for these girls who rather than enjoy being in the spotlight and the attention that it comes with, would rather live like a regular-Jane, another passing face on the street whose looks aren’t scrutinised.

Speaking instead of the relationship between beautiful and not so pretty girls, aiming a joke at an unattractive girl seen as mean however when roles are exchanged and fun is made at the ones blessed with the good looks, it is as a joke and taken lightly. My conclusion is that we ought not take our looks or comments on them too seriously, like most things in life they need to be taken with a pinch of salt as these are part of the material things that get left behind in the end. It’s kindness towards each other than make us human at the end of the day.
