#FashionCrush- Princess Charlene of Monaco

The story of Princess Charlene of Monaco truly reads like a Hollywood movie.

Her origins were a far cry from the palatial world she now lives in. Born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia, which is now Zimbabwe, the blonde stunner could never have imagined the life destined for her. Having been born to a mother, who was a former competitive diver, young Charlene to the reigns and began swimming competitively. Her passion took her all the way to the 2000 Olympics where she competed as a member of the South African women’s 4 x 100 m medley.

After placing fifth in the Olympics, Princess Charlene went on to compete in a slew of other swimming competitions. At one of her competitions she met Prince Albert II. The two began dating in 2001, however, it was not made public until 2006. On July 1, 2011, the couple was married. From then on her new title was Her Serene Highness The Princess Charlene Of Monaco. This new title has brought her international respect. The Princess can now be found at every major event from the Met ball to front row at top shows where she is the guest of honor. These outings are highly anticipated since the princess can always be counted on to show up in the best of the best haute couture.

Three years into the marriage, Princess Charlene gave birth to twins Gabriella Therese Marie and Jacques Honore Rainier. Even though her daughter was born first, it is her son, Jacques, who is first in line for the throne. Not surprising. The Princess, however, has proven that a woman can be a strong figure, even though they are not favored for the throne. She not only uses her name to gain entry into exclusive events, she also dedicates her life to a good cause. She has brought awareness to the inclusion of people with physical and mental disabilities and cites the Special Olympics as something that is close to her heart.

ICYMI! LOGO (@LogoTV) Releases “Noah’s ARC” on YouTube; Reboot Rumors Swirl!

It is hard to believe it has been almost fifteen years since Noah’s ARC debuted on LOGO and we have to say it is was love at “first watch.” The epic love story between Noah (Darryl Stephens), and his seemingly straight, boyfriend, Wade (Jensen Atwood), opened new avenues for gay storytelling and inspired masses of gay films, projects, and marketing. We dare say Moonlight owes its success, in part, to the doors this series opened. LOGO recently dropped full episodes of the series on YouTube and reboot rumors are swirling!

Jensen Atwood and Darryl Stephens as “Noah and Wade”

Both seasons of Noah’s ARC are currently running via LOGO’s YouTube, prompting many to wonder if the network is rebooting the series. The series’ cancellation in 2006 was highly controversial as it was easily the network’s flagship series and its most highly rated one. What is interesting is that LOGO chose to drop the series on YouTube, which has become prime real estate for the web series we know and love. Perhaps this is the new format the series could be picked back up on. However, if we are talking reboots we either want a complete reboot of the series with a new set of guys as Noah, Alex, Ricky, and Chance; or a continuation of the original cast, updating where they are in life nearly fifteen years later.

We have to say we are extremely happy to see Toy Story 4 on the horizon. We really wish it was a weekly series–wishful thinking, we know. Still, we love the trailer and this may very well be their biggest adventure yet.

Annie Potts as “Bo Peep”

The film seems to run off the same motif of girl power as so many films have over the last couple of years with the return of Bo Peep SAVING Woody no less. We often wondered what happened to her between the second and third Toy Story films. Fanfare alleged she was either broken by Andy’s (the toys’ former owner) sister or simply given away. The trailer, however, alludes she was lost and seems to be thriving, however.

Toy Story 4 hits theaters nationwide this summer on June 21, 2019!
