Red is the color of love and LAUREN NASH is a red-hot talent who is set to garner a passionate following with her incredibly desirable assets. From her pneumatic curves to her glamorous features, she can be quite the tease and we admit it’s having a magical spell on us all. I dare say her tempting pics (above) can easily give “Mad Men” starlet Christina Hendricks a run for her money. Indeed her turn as a raunchy red-head named Ruby in the comedy “Heterosexual Jill” should garner her solid attention as she did before on the TV Series “Chemistry” when she had rather steamy scenes. Lauren also had the priceless moment when her character Jackie uttered “I was hoping we could have a FOURSOME!” She’s also on the road to success having guest-starred in JJ Abrams show, “Revolution” and will appear in CUT! about a pair of filmmakers who decide that horror masterpieces only happen when the people on camera are killed for real! It’s great to know she’s a huge horror fan and would be so ideal as an upcoming Scream Queen.
In an interview, she sees herself as continuing to be part of memorable projects and thus far, LAUREN has done extensively to suggest she’s one to remember fondly. It is Valentine’s Day so a show of adulation for LAUREN is in the offing especially when she is Fantasy Girl Material. Bewitching from head to toe, there’s going to be a slew of viewers who can’t wait to feast their eyes on someone as infinitely stunning as LAUREN NASH.
I think we are all blessed to be in the presence of MIRANDA FRIGON whose memorable sensuality is so luminous. She is of course the Star of “Primeval: New World” appearing as the business-like Ange Finch. The UK series “Primeval” may have sexy Lucy Brown sizzling it up but MIRANDA may just pip her in the delectable stakes. Her immense sex appeal is evident on camera and should rank her as one of the hottest women in 2013. I have to admit I did watch her “Primeval: New World” reel repeatedly for she has such a perspicuous allure…:) One only has to look at her photo gallery on the MIRANDA FRIGON OFFICIAL SITE and be left amazed by the shots of her in skimpy wear. A Maple-Leaf Vixen is what she is and her blossoming into a coveted actress is so timely.
Much admired on television for her role on popular show “Heartland”, she’s also guest-starred in “Emily Owens M.D.” and can been seen in Season 2 of “Artic Air”. Having been a seductive fixture on TV, MIRANDA is also music to our ears as a singer-songwriter. If you’re talking about vivaciousness, she has plenty of it, a goddess with an unforgettable disposition that’s flawlessly inviting. In the roles she’s played, MIRANDA has been a sassy sensation and already has Sci-Fi fans writing letters and asking for photos. Start joining her fan club and be enlivened by the rousing personality of the very divine Miss MIRANDA FRIGON.
Many would have already found rising starlet MELISSA PAULO pretty scrumptious after catching her in the McDonalds McRibs Commercial way back in ’08. Her yummy status is set to thrive in 2011 since she’s spicing up both the television series “Femme Fatales” and MTV’s “Death Valley”. She did mesmerize at the recent Comic Con and from the photos I’ve seen, MELISSA is hands down a Living Doll. A model from Hawaii, her ethnicity comprises a bewitching mix of Japanese-Filipino plus slivers of European nationalities; let’s just say MELISSA is too bewitching not to be thoroughly captivated. She uses that very sexy quality to great effect on the episode “Girls Gone Dead” from “Femme Fatales” as a sorority girl who gains the ultimate revenge on a porn mogul, an obvious nod to sleazy Girls Gone Wild head honcho Joe Francis. MELISSA may have played the bookwormish Erida but there’s something dangerous brewing when the black-rimmed glasses and clothes come off. Clearly MELISSA is a delight from the get-go, at first as the innocent, smart girl and revealing her true colors as the seductress/killer. And just like she says in one of her scenes, we men can’t resist her and that’s so true even when she’s out of character.
All this means we have to keep our eyes peeled for this honey in the first two episodes of “Death Valley” premiering August 29th. In the meantime you can catch her in two web series, the Angels vs Demons “Soul Fire Rising” and the 4-part pilot “House Of Heather”. MELISSA’s gorgeous, come-hither brown eyes and tropical exotic look without question adds to her mystique. I must admit the coyness she displays in her roles is so fascinating. It’s always nice to feature striking personalities of our era and MELISSA has done her bit in getting us gushing over her.

Give me an authentic songstress any day of the week instead of all the cookie cutter, one-dimensional auto-tune wannabes out there. Enter singer/songwriter RACHAEL OWENS who has an exceptional voice that resonates even when stripped down to the bare acoustic style. Sorry to say I’ve heard Ke$ha,Miley Cyrus,etc. perform live and they sound atrocious so I’m partial to the more credible sounds of say Sara Bareilles and Rachel Yamagata. When a singer appears to be polished on record but fails miserably outside of the studio, that’s how you tell that they are seriously lacking tune wise. RACHAEL on the other hand is legit all the way as can been seen from her remarkable vocal range on groovy self-penned “Everything Is Alright” (above). Check out RACHAEL OWENS ON REVERBNATION for the dynamic neo-soulfulness glittering her collection of original songs. Much Thanks to RACHAEL and her photographer Danya Morrison who have both graciously allowed me to use the gorgeous photos(above) adorning this article.
While she’s at the cusp of her blossoming music career, on the acting front, RACHAEL appears in the upcoming “Empress Vampire” as a gorgeous bloodsucker. First imagery from the movie sees RACHAEL baring her fangs and I must say you’ll be lusting after her as we so often do when getting seduced by these sexy vamps…hehe. With an ever increasing appeal in the music/film world as well as her beguiling personality, success is set to come quickly for such a beautiful soul.
Q & A WITH THE VIVACIOUS RACHAEL OWENS
1. Hi Rachael, you’re an accomplished singer,songwriter and actress currently based in Los Angeles. What have been the highlights of your career so far?
A: Well one of the biggest highlights for me is when I’ve finished recording and I hold the finished album in my hand. I’ve recorded 2 independent CD’s, one full length album in Canada and I’m about to release my new EP in the US and the world this summer. I’m very hands on with every aspect of the CD, from writing, to co-producing, recording and the artwork, so it’s very satisfying when it’s complete. I also love the collaborative process while recording. With regards to music, other highlights would probably be specific concerts and festivals I’ve been asked to perform at over the years.
With regards to my acting, I’ve been pretty busy with the music lately so I haven’t been acting that much in the past 2 years. But before that, I really enjoyed acting in 2 independent films called Empress Vampire and Hunting Grounds, where I played a singing Vampire and a College Professor who specializes in UFO’s. They weren’t lead roles or anything, but they were really fun to play.
2. Can you give us an insight into your musical style and what have been the major influences shaping the songs your write?
A: I have a pretty eclectic musical style. I would call it Pop/Rock/Soul but there are elements of Jazz in there as well. I’m influenced by many genres. If you love music, it doesn’t really have boundaries, in my opinion. It just has to be good. I grew up singing along to records by jazz artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday and performed in alot of musical theatre. But when I started to play in bands and write music, I was influenced by U2, Michael Jackson, Sting, Lauryn Hill, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Prince. When I started playing guitar, I would play songs by Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLachlan.
3. “Dear Friend Of Mine” is your maiden music video that made its debut just a few weeks ago and I must say there’s a feel good vibe throughout touching on love and friendship. Do you believe in the notion of friends with benefits, mixing intimacy between good pals?
A: Friends with Benefits..hmm. Well I think it can work in some situations as long as there is communication about what’s going on. But it’s tricky cause you don’t want to ruin a friendship. That song can be interpreted in many ways, the music video is just one interpretation.
4. I’m not the type to mince my words so here goes. No matter what people say because there was no Simon Cowell to harshly critique the contestants, the standard on American Idol was particularly substandard. What’s your opinion on this and what does it take to be a success in the music industry?
A: Well I actually enjoy watching American Idol and I do think there are some very talented singers on there. When it comes to artistry though, that takes time to develop..so by the end of the show, it might not have fully developed yet for some. There were artists on the show and Idol really just gave them a platform. In this day and age with the music industry struggling with selling records and less artists getting signed, you really have to be open to any avenue to get heard. I know I have to use the internet more to my advantage when it comes to getting my music out there.
5. Your voice has an impeccable mutli-layered soulfulness. Tell us how you consistently reach those powerful high notes and how difficult is it for performers?
A: Thank you so much Haren. When it comes to reaching high notes, it’s a lot about control, rest the night before and having an ear for the note. I think the most difficulty in singing happens when you haven’t warmed up your voice, if you’re nervous or tired. Also, I love dance and I’ve tried to sing and do choreography at the same time…wow that is really hard! lol

6. Recently, I came across a pic of you with pointy fangs for your role as a seductive vampire in the upcoming indie horror flick “Empress Vampire”. Can you tell us a little about your role and was it like to go all vamped up?
A: Well I had a blast playing vampire Candace for the film. It’s a Sci Fi, Musical, Comedy Horror flick kind of in the vein of Rocky Horror Picture Show or any B movie Horror film out there with a twist. I actually haven’t seen the final version of the movie, so I don’t know how much I’m in it. I’m not one of the lead characters. I play one of the Vampire assistants to the lead Vampire. My main scene is when me and another Vampire seduce these FBI agents.
We sing and waltz with them before we kill them..lol. The funny thing is I sang in the studio recording the voice that the other Vampire lip synchs to. So I’m actually lip synching to another singers voice. It’s cool though… it was a casting decision that happened after the recording. The whole crew were great on set. It was fun putting on fangs and playing an evil character. We laughed alot during this shoot.
7. Just like the majority of actresses I’ve had the pleasure to befriend, you’re undeniably one of the nicest ladies in the industry. Why is it important to treat people well no matter where they’re from or whatever their stature may be?
A: Thanks Haren. I do believe you should treat people the way you’d like to be treated. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what you do in my mind. I believe in Karma as well.
8. You were born in Central Africa, spent your formative years in Canada and now pursue artistic endeavors in LA, embodying the spirit of global citizenship. What would be your ideal getaway in future and can I be your tag-along?
A: Well I do love to travel. My favorite get away right now would probably be Hawaii. I would love to take a week off and just relax and meditate by the beach. So I hope I can do that soon. I’m flattered that you’d like to come along:)
9. What does the lovely and talented Rachael Owens have in store for her fans in the latter part of 2011 and beyond?
A: Well, I will be releasing my music on Itunes, Amazon and CD Baby very soon.. I will also be filming more original videos and covers for youtube. I have a few directors who are also interested in making a few more music videos for me as well. I don’t know when that will happen though. Also my CD Release Party is on August 12, Friday night at 10 pm at Room 5 in Hollywood. I haven’t played my own show for a really long time, as I’ve been recording. So come on out!
Thanks Haren for being such a supporter of my music! I really appreciate it and hope to meet you one day!
As I write this, Shirly Brener is probably glaming up the premiere of her indie “Letting Go” at Dances With Films”. By virtue that she sent me her autograph complete with a special “The Simpsons” stamp, she has endeared herself as one of my favorite all time actresses. Film Star, Model, Producer, Artist and Humanitarian, she’s a class act indeed. A versatile character actress, Shirly’s breathtaking presence in the intimate moments of the dramedy “Letting Go” is the very reason we should go and see the movie. Isn’t it any wonder that she regularly adorns the pages of fashion mags such as Maxim, Esquire and FHM. Most significantly, it’s Shirley’s outgoing personality and charming facade that sees her remain unforgettable in the eyes of her devotees…:)
If Marilyn Monroe were alive, she’d be proud of the extremely delectable Jacqui Holland. Her mix of pin-up allure and comic skills have helped her master the mediums of film,television,stage and web. A dazzling multi-genre talent, Jacqui’s flirtatious playfulness and voluptuous figure makes her the definitive Sex Bomb of the modern era. Add that distinctive adorable voice which an interviewer once labeled as a “Fuck Me” voice and you have a performer who is exceptionally tasty! Her newest indie comedy “Hollywood Sex Wars” will have Jacqui deliver tremendous seductiveness as part of the feminine cult called ‘T.O.B.s’ aka “Thick Old Bitties”. Check out the must-see raunchy trailer (above) as luscious girls lure unsuspecting men into their sex traps!
When cutie Melissa Goad sent me her collection of bikini pics recently, I couldn’t wait to lay my eyes on them. Lo and behold when I finally did, I’ve concluded that this girl seriously belongs on a Hot Actress List every summer. She is after all a founding member of The World Bikini Football League, a sensual mix of the rough and racy as girls flaunt their curves while competing on opposing teams. Melissa herself is a sure-fire turn on with her gorgeous toned body and sunny personality. One of the most lovable performers you can ever hope to meet, she’s quickly becoming the face of indie thrillers especially since she’s a big part of the mysterious found footage slasher “Eyes In The Dark”.
This list would not be complete if i didn’t include Katrina Bowden voted The Sexiest Woman Alive 2011 according to Esquire Magazine. I’m sure everyone has seen the photos of her in those revealing outfits in the pages of Esquire and fondly remembered her skinny dipping scene in the hilarious comedy “Tucker and Dale Vs Evil”. Incredibly, she’s in “American Reunion”, bringing the original cast back and returning to the beloved “American Pie” franchise, the most influential movie of my generation. And even though Pirahna 3DD will only be released in November, you can bet Katrina will be in them itsy, bitsy bikinis. If you can’t stop staring, it’s because Katrina’s come-hither sweetness is massively engaging!
The biggest piece of juicy news regarding the saucy Melissa Ordway is that she’s been cast in the star-studded adaptation of “Odd Thomas”. The supernatural novel by the legendary Dean Koontz has amass a bevy of beauties including “Californication” sex toy Addison Timlin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and of course Melissa in leading roles. That’s for 2012 but this year, get obsessed with this model/actress as she’s slated to star in “Escapee” that sees her in various stages of undress! There’s Dominic Purcell reliving his “Prison Break” days but with better hair and a villainous turn. Obviously Melissa will be remembered for a titillating love scene and providing the thrills as one of cinema’s emerging young sirens.

If you had chanced upon blonde cutie Julianna Barninger playing drums clad in a skimpy pink bikini, it would be a visual thrill anywhere in the world. That’s why the “Bikini Guitar Hero” video(above) has such potential to go viral and I went ‘Why Didn’t I Think Of That’…hehe. Bang Those Drums good, Pretty Girl! Julianna most certainly whets our appetites throughout and she’ll probably do the same all summer long judging from her most recent pics on the beach. This sun-kissed babe is genuinely foxy and funny, exuding visibly appealing of traits in her array of her current and future projects.
Indie starlet, horror hottie, gay icon, comic queen on film and stage….the list keeps growing when giving praise to all-round entertainer Rebekah Kochan. Her ballsy devil may care spirit in a majority of her roles usually includes the hurling of an F-word or two but that doesn’t mean she is pigeonholed in the genre of cheeky comedy. The upcoming “Finding Mr Wright” finds her in her element as a eccentric girl who’s transformed into a big-time actress. It’s easy to see why she’s being compared to Lucille Ball as Rebekah has the ability to elicit laughs by just facial expressions. I may not have found pics of Rebekah in a bikini, preferably a tiny one but everyone knows she’s the thinking man’s Sex Symbol.
Alluring Kimberly Wallis has done a host of TV roles including a sexy love scene that ends cruelly (she gets a lethal injection on the neck) in “CSI: New York” and a spot on “Charmed” when Shannen Doherty ruled the coven!! She is set to appear in TV’s newest family show “Switched At Birth” which has incredibly become the #1 debut TV Series for ABC….Let The Rating Wars Begin! Keep your eyes peeled for Kimberly in the 3rd episode right at the beginning as she plays Gillian, the friend of Lea Thompson’s character Kristen Kennish, the wealthy matriarch who’s bound for emotional turmoil. I hope Kimberly gets a recurring gig on “Switched At Birth” which has already wowed viewers with its emotionally-charged life-changing plot. Two girls discovering they were wrongly transplanted, one into a life of privilege and riches, the other growing up poor and dealt the sorry state of life is hands down a recipe for intense melodrama. Hey Mr Casting Agent!! Start spreading the love and give sweet Kimberly a regular spot on your soon to be hit show…;)
Seeing how she’s endowed with pleasing photogenic features, I was impressed to find out that she used to model in Japan and is well-traveled so crossing my fingers she makes her way back to Asia. Go forth to the KIMBERLY WALLIS OFFICIAL SITE for more info on this luscious talent who has one of the cutest smiles I’ve seen on the evidence of her photos. I didn’t get to see her playing off Shannon Elizabeth in “Cuts” but she can certainly turn on the funny (see her reel above). Known for her comedic flair leading to rave reviews for her extensive theater work, Kimberly could build on that success and be the latest in the line of TV honeys.
Widely touted as a big reason why viewers watch “Reno 911″, MARY BIRDSONG is a first-class beacon of entertainment. A comedian, writer, and singer, MARY has embodied various noteworthy figures on both TV and Film. She was the publicist of Dr Loomis (played by Malcolm McDowell) in “Halloween 2″ and of course provided amazing comic relief as Deputy Cherisha Kimball of “Reno 911″ with her bumbling attempts at law enforcement. It’s the impressive way she creates these distinctive alter-egos with ease that highlights her remarkable ability to please a diverse spectrum of audience. One of her more engrossing ones being 99 Cent Whore which in her words is an off-Broadway musical, a film, an album and a band rolled into one. The awkward southern spontaneity she espouses while strumming the guitar is endearingly funny and packed with sardonic wit. Pretty soon she’ll bowl you over once again as the co-star of George Clooney in the bittersweet comedy ‘The Descendants”. In the trailer (above), she (as Kai) has to reveal to Mr Clooney (as Matt King) the identity of the man who committed adultery with his late wife. I’m envisioning lots of amusing banter between the two of them.
If anyone wants to know why I label MARY BIRDSONG as Sexy, one has to look at the numerous glam up photos she’s in that populate her Facebook Fan Pages. By the way MARY reads her fan mail in her bikini (see clip above) and that must surely encourage many to check her out in the coming Summer months. Don’t forgot to drop by the MARY BIRDSONG OFFICIAL SITE as she has some interesting morsels of information and videos to share. There’s an air of excitement as she’s appearing in Tales of the City. Running from May 18 – July 10 at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, CA, there’s a rumor she goes topless on stage as Mona Ramsey….I’m guessing right now you have a sudden impulse to find out…hehe. MARY BIRDSONG has more than pull off her accolade as “Hollywood’s Top 10 Talents On The Rise” and providing the delightful tonic we’ve been craving for.
