Tanya van Graan upset over nude pics from movie


Model Tanya van Graan said she was unhappy that Heat magazine decided to use naked pictures of her. “I am not a wild girl and I’m not a stripper.” The photographs are from clips of the movie Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.

Van Graan, who was FHM’s sexiest woman in 2007, plays the role of Sergeant Sunday in this Hollywood movie, which also stars American actor Casper van Dien. In the scene, which lasts about one minute, Van Graan was seen naked from a strategically placed panel. The scene shows how the “starship troopers” are being cleansed.

Acting passion

Van Graan told Beeld on Thursday that she had tried to get an interdict to prevent the magazine from printing the photographs, but her legal adviser told her she would not succeed as the movie scenes from which they originated, had already been made public. “The photographs were taken out of context and used where they don’t belong.” She also claimed that the magazine refused to show her the clips. As a result, Van Graan said she told them she would not be able to comment. Van Graan said what made her unhappy, was that she was put in a position where she had to explain herself. “People think I’m not an actress, but acting is my passion. People think if a model does nude scenes, it is because they are desperate for an acting career, but it’s not the case. I chose to play in the film and I stand by my choice.” Melinda Shaw, chief editor of Heat, said their legal team and Van Graan’s legal team had spoken before publication.

Jena Dover, eTV Scandal ActressThis is an interview with one of South Africa’s up and coming actresses. She is set to take the movie world by storm as she matures into new acting roles over time…

Anyway here’s a new interview from The Citizen newspaper…

Faatema Ismael (FI): How important is health and beauty to you?

Jena Dover (JD): I believe beauty and health are very closely linked. Getting enough rest and treating your body with respect are vital.

If you start there it can only enhance the beauty aspect. I get my favourite treatments done once a month.

FI: Most of us have days when we wake up and just don’t feel attractive.

Does this ever happen to you? If so, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

JD: Every day! To feel better, I get my eyebrows tinted and threaded, and give my lashes a quick curl with an eyelash curler.

I feel instantly glamorous.

FI: When you aren’t working or attending events, what is your beauty routine?

JD: I wash my face with a gentle cleanser and moisturiser, a little concealer, mascara and gloss.

I get a blow wave and I’m out the door.

FI: How do you keep in shape?

JD: I work out three times a week with my trainer. Women have to do weights. It’s so important!

FI: Your number one beauty secret is….

JD: Eyebrow threading. It’s an ancient Indian technique and it is by far the best money I spend on myself each month.

No more horrid tweezers.

FI: Best beauty advice you have ever received?

JD: To dab a little shimmer down the centre of my nose for a J-Lo glow. But I call it the J-Do glow!

Cherese Nolan from Jacaranda 94.2FM features in FHM


Just Plain Breakfast “Apprentice” Cherese Nolan features in very little more than her birthday suit in the June edition of FHM. Why did the Jacaranda 94.2 weather girl decide to do it? It was a publicity stunt and a dare!

Just Plain Breakfast producer Dean hatched the plan. After some persuasion Cherese, also a part-time belly dancer, capitulated. The shoot took place in March and is featured in the latest FHM edition which is on shelves now. This is what Cherese told Buzz.


Enlightened Buddha Prayer


Beyond the beliefs of any one religion,
there is the truth of the human spirit.
Beyond the power of nations,
there is the power of the human heart.
Beyond the ordinary mind, the power of wisdom,
love, and healing energy are at work in the universe.
When we find peace within our hearts,
we contact these universal powers.
This is our only hope.

Our only hope is to find peace within our hearts.

Is finding peace within our hearts an illusion? Is finding peace within our hearts possible? If finding peace within our hearts is not an illusion, then how is it possible to find peace within our hearts?

The power of the human heart is Love.

Is the power of love in the human heart an illusion? Is the power of love in the human heart possible? If the power of love in the human heart is not an illusion, then how is the power of love in the human heart possible?

Love and healing energy are at work in the universe.

Universal power is love and healing energy.

The human spirit is truth.

The power of wisdom is beyond the ordinary mind.

What the above means is simply this:
Still your ordinary mind
Connect with the human spirit
Connect with the power of wisdom beyond.
The Universal power of love and healing energy is found all around us
Peace and love resides deep within the heart.

This is the truth.

My Truth
I have this passion for healing
I feel this deep within my Soul. I cannot escape this feeling.
When I go through my learning spurts
My bones, body and heart aches.
I cry, I wonder why?
I find the answers deep within
The aches and pains disappear.
Once again my heart is filled with love and peace.
