Love and marriage are in the air for Kelly Bundy, America’s sweetheart. The Express Night Out website is reporting that Christina Applegate is engaged to marry musician Martyn Lenoble. Applegate’s publicist, Ame Van Iden, said Friday that the couple of two years became betrothed on Valentine’s Day. This will be the second marriage for both the actress and the Dutch rocker. No wedding date has been set. How sweet.

Christina Arguilera is going for the Queen of the Club Scene title, by the sounds of things, from this preview of Not Myself Tonight –Arguilera’s first comeback single off her album, Bionic.
Diva’s screaming to electronic music is loved all across Europe, so she’s onto a winner for American pop music marketing. Nice one!

Christina Applegate is a Hollywood actress who inspires in her high profile and much publicized recovery from cancer. Go here to see video of Applegate’s behind the scenes photoshoot for Women’s Health Magazine, as Applegate contributes to cancer awareness.
To support women’s rehabilitation from cancer, while being beauty conscious, this brilliant website–Cancer and Careers, allows you to buy beauty products while donating to cancer survivors well being. Impressive charitable branding of beauty products!
Go here to order and spend your beauty money more strategically for a good cause. Also gift these products this gift giving season to women you love and know, and/ or… to men like American Idol break out star, Adam Lambert!!!
Going by Adam’s totally ridonkulous For Your Entertainmnt album cover, the gay performance artist and entertainer needs a truckload of beauty products! He’s high maintenance, as you would say in West Hollywood.
To keep it ‘real,’ you might want to get Adam a sandblaster too, from the Home Depot Store, with your gift purchase to assist Glambert in getting his war paint face off a bit quicker each day, to save time with his busy star schedule.
The Huskie Sandblasting Kit “designed to remove rust, scale and paint as well as etch glass and weather wood” looks like Adam’s hot ticket, for only $9. Adam Lambert is like America’s gay-white-male, Rihanna of pop on this cover. It took a lot of make up to achieve this ‘futuristic’ out-of-space, comsic, gay vision. Adam knows that aliens are the hot new trend in Hollywood after vampires have run their course at the box office, in 2012.
All humor aside, donate to support women recovering from cancer in their careers today and buy Adam’s album, that features the single Time For Miracles from the 2012 movie soundtrack, if you like his music.
Go Christina Applegate and Adam Lambert! And a Great Beauty Branding Award should get dolled out to Cancer and Careers innovation in marketing today. They are just too awesome!

Kia Ora (hello). Some of you are asking me why I don’t write much poetry these days and just blog about celebrities. So this one’s for you. It’s a poem submitted for Whetu Moana Lua, poetry anthology collection of Maori and Polynesian Poets around the world. Editors are: Robert Sullivan, Reina Whaitiri and Dr Albert Wendt. Originally, I wrote for Whetu Moana when being trained by author and professor, Witi Ihimaera, in the art of creative writing.
To enjoy and appreciate my poetry for its inflections of the Maori language, I recommend using this tool, to understand words you may not have heard of before. Being a hori (Maori) in Hollywood is a pioneering thing, so the online Maori dictionary will help any of you LA types reading it.
My poems from Whetu Moana I, are taught in Universities in America (the mainland), New Zealand, Hawaii, the UK and Edinburgh Scotland to name a few. So…. I’m shouting this out to all you guys and dolls today doing English Literature progams around the world. Thanks for reading poetry. And most importantly, may you all continue to write your own poetry too.
Flip the hood to read:
iMaori is the name of my phone
that uses niu media in a hori way
online it searches the Maori dictionary
–the Ngata version, of course.
finding kupu food to enlighten and
illuminate the wairua and mind
it’s also the Maori stork, delivering
in Rei Tu and Rei Pai legendary fashion
fresh pics of pepi, Jake Kereama
he’s of Nga Puhi Tonu Nui descent
was born into a hapu of Whakapara
while his Uncle Hami played Kupe
in a faraway Hollywood land
my phone houses the inner marae walls
held in the crucified palm of my hand
flickering through digitized sepia photographs
of my grandparents and the many greats
who walked in my moccasins long before
jandals were even invented for big hori feet
where their ancient tribal paths meet the axis
of my globalised Maori self, I still hang with them
iMaori brings me Hotere’s vintage wisdom too
of no ordinary sun poetic epiphanies
of a simple life lived with profound thoughts
defining life beyond an economic atomic
There are no ‘enhaloed clouds’ in sight, but
an economic recession sits heavy on the moko (more…)
This from the lovely Christina Applegate’s twitter account this morning:
The Lee Denim website, gives this story from Christina who survived a double mastectomy radical surgery, chemotherapy and radio therapy in her fight against breast cancer. Love this woman! By the way, Horis (Maori Women) have the highest breast cancer rate in the world. Let’s make a change. Christina says:
“In 2003, I had the pleasure of serving as the Lead Ambassador for Lee National Denim Day®. As I return as the 2009 Ambassador, the importance of this campaign has become even more real to me. Last year, I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. I learned from genetic testing that I have a mutation in the BRCA 1 gene which makes me more susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer. As a result, my doctor ordered a variety of screening tests to try to detect cancer in its earliest stages (when it is most treatable), and it saved my life. So this year, I am proud to return to Lee National Denim Day not only as the 2009 Ambassador, but as a survivor doing all I can for this cause. By joining me and wearing jeans on Friday, October 2, you can help fund the important work of my friends at the Women’s Cancer Programs of EIF. This year, I’m excited to announce that a portion of funds raised will also support my personal foundation – Right Action for Women. My hope is that with Right Action for Women, we help women at increased risk for breast cancer gain access to the information and tests that they need to beat this disease. Together, we can raise millions to support breast cancer research and awareness. It’s so simple and so powerful. I truly believe that it is events like this that help save lives. All it takes is $5 dollars to make a difference. So join me on October 2. I have a great feeling that with your help, this could be the best year yet! Sincerely, Christina Applegate.”

No. It’s NOT Chelsea Handler of Chelsea Lately, it’s Christina Applegate of Samantha Who?
Applegate’s show has been axed due to monetary cut backs sighted as being the reason, Variety reports. Well, at least Christina Applegate is still People Magazine’s #1 Most Beautiful person this year, if its any small consolation to the blonde starlet.
Applegate has been Paulina Porizkova-ed Tyra Banks style and is now without a job due to the $! Sad.
[image source] I’ve been scratching my head all day, as to why People Magazine (the second biggest seller in the US each week) would list Christina Applegate as their most beautiful peep in their Top 100 list. All day, I was blonder than Applegate herself, and couldn’t work it out, until I saw this image.
Of course, greatness feeds into greatness. (more…)
People Magazine released it’s Top 100 Most Beautiful People. Although I think Christina Applegate is a lovely girl, whose surviving cancer story is inspiring, she is NOT the most beautiful person in America, let alone the world.
This perhaps indicates, that People need a change of leadership at the helm, that’s a little bit more relevant and in tune with what true beauty is and how audiences perceive that outside of People’s editor’s single-eyed lens. (more…)
