Foxy Femme: Vanessa Vander Pluym

 alt=  alt=

The fact that the sexiest women are on television is a bonanza and the telegenic Vanessa Vander Pluym would be regarded as one of the hottest. She’s athletic, multi-talented and possesses the unflinching fearlessness to go the distance in her craft, be it stunt work or acting. The WWE may have its divas AJ Lee and Paige but on TV there’s the saucy Vanessa who could well suplex us into adoration with her appearance on “Jane The Virgin”. As the wrestler Juicy Jordan, she’s every bit a ringside Goddess and is as potently sexy as she is tough with those moves of hers. With her curvaceous toned figure, her red wrestling bodice makes her a sizzler indeed (see pic above).

Additionally, Vanessa is an expert in martial arts and has a black belt in Tae kwon do. Her abilities as a circus performer, performing stilt walking, contortionist, aerial acts and even roller derby are just as noteworthy. She’s also represented the US as a renowned gymnast for a number of years. Away from the sporting world, she’s worked on quite a number of hit shows such as “NCIS: Los Angeles”, “Castle”, “Criminal Minds” and most notably in “Southland”. Her scenes were as much emotional as they were physical where her versatility was such an asset. On film, Vanessa has rubbed shoulders with the likes of Johnny Depp and Keanu Reeves. Keep Vanessa in your cherished thoughts as she’s bound to be a delight on any medium.

Sizzling Cutie: Natalie Palamides

Adorable flair is a most loving trait one can associate with Natalie Palamides who is a breath of fresh comedic air. She’s one of the stars of the closing film “My Name is Vivienne” at the La Femme Film Festival 2014. Playing the naive Caitlin, she’s a well-intentioned young lady who is the friend of fading starlet Vivienne (Alexandria McCale) whose hit show was cancelled. While trying to capture her lost glory, Vivienne starts to leech on her friends including Caitlin and misadventures ensue. Natalie is already working on a web series called “The Caitlin Chronicles”, a spin-off from the feature “My Name is Vivienne” which will follow her tribulations while finding a job. Besides her mastery in Clowning, Voice Over, and jumping on a pogo stick, it’s her penchant for un-beautifying herself while delving into her sometimes dowdy characters that will garner her much admiration. Kudos to funny women like Natalie who do indeed go the distance for their craft!

Here’s Natalie revealing quite a bit of her current and upcoming projects:

I got a small role in my first major feature a couple months ago, produced by Sony, called “Kitchen Sink” where I play a creepy ex best friend of one of the lead characters. Also, I’m about to start shooting more episodes of a web series called “Burning Bridges” where I play an up tight, well-off girl, which is fun, because I’m not normally cast as that type of character. I also just finished doing a few different voices for an educational short called “Planet X,” written and directed by one of the story writers for “The Lion King,” Jim Capobianco. Other than that I’m constantly doing improv/sketch/clown with my friends, and two groups I’m a part of, “Wet the Hippo,” which is directed by a lead clown of Cirque du Soleil, John Gilkey, and “Little Red Feathers.” I’ll also be traveling to Philadelphia this spring to continue developing a project with the Obie Award Winning, “Pig Iron Theatre Company.”

Natalie is more than capable of bring to life these quirky slices of life that make women such fascinating subjects and with her ingenuity, she may soon be shining brightly!
