Beth Phoenix

December 09, 2009 by pvc

Today I continue part two of the Tuesday Take Down with as I promised with Beth Phoenix. Her real name is Elizabeth Kocanski Carolan and of course she’s a professional wrestler for the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) SmackDown brand.


In her younger years when she attended New York Notre Dame High School, she picked up an interest in wrestling on the Elmira’s scholastic wrestling team. She made history there as the first female varsity wrestler. In the year of 1999, she earned the title of North-East freestyle women's champion at the 72 kg weight class. In the same weight class, she also won the women's championship at the New York State Fair Tournament. What helped her to become a champion was her hard work as a member of the USA Wrestling which was a freestyle wrestling association. Then she had ambitions wishing to be a professional wrestler and as we can see, the rest was history.


It was on May 8, 2006 when she first debuted on WWE's Raw brand by battling with Mickie James. (See my past entry) Then on the next episode of Raw she battled out with Mickie again after a match with Torrie Wilson. Then in July 2007, she made a return back to Raw to seek revenge in dominate the other WWE Divas and keep her title. This time, she earned the nickname "The Glamazon". She then held her top spot for six months in October winning her first WWE Women's Championship at the No Mercy pay-per-view. Continuing her winning streak, she made a second win in the Women's Championship in August 2008. In the beginning of this year in January, she lost it.


Also in this past year, she moved to SmackDown. The word was out on Ocober 12 of Raw that she would be traded for the first time to SmackDown. It was in October 13 when she officially made her debut in the ring. Also, in the muscle building magazine “FLEX”, she appears on the February 2009 issue. She is also nicknamed the "The Total Package of Women's Wrestling" and "The Über Diva". Check out The Über Diva in a red vinyl vest and see for yourself why she's the "The Total Package of Women's Wrestling"!


Torrie Wilson

December 08, 2009 by pvc

Another wrestler I wouldn’t mind being pinned down to is Torrie Wilson. She is a current retired American professional wrestler, model and fitness competitor. She is remembered for eight years for her work with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on both brands SmackDown and Raw.


In the late 1990s, she showed an interest to fitness. As a fitness competitor, she had to eat six meals a day and workout regularly. In her first competition, she placed third and then took on the title as “Miss Galaxy” in 1998. She was a member of the Extreme Fitness Team. This same year in 1998 she place #1 in the Grace and Physique round of the Women's Tri-Fitness Championships.


It was now between 1999 until 2001 when she was discovered by the World Championship Wrestling. Then in 2001 she ended up on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) TV as part of The Invasion storyline. She made her debut on June 28, 2001 on the episode of SmackDown! Also, she teamed up with Stacy Keibler (See previous Entry) both making wrestling debuts in the WWF in a Bra and Panties. Later on they eventually built a close friendship and became roommates in Los Angeles, California. In the final days of her wrestling career on August 21, 2005, she transfed to the Raw brand.


As for her magazine appearances, She is seen on the covers of Playboy May 2003 & March 2004 as well as a pictorial in the May 2003 issue and FHM September 2006. The next year in 2007, FHM rated her as #43 on their 100 Sexiest Women in the World list. In the's list for the Most Desirable Women in the World, she places #22 and #25 respectively in 2006 and 2007.


 Torrie has made a few special appearances in the recent years. On August 22, 2006, she made one on WWE's ECW brand for Raw in a bikini contest. This year in April, she was scheduled to appear on the NBC reality show, “I'm a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here!” that later aired in June. Finally she made a season finale return to the WWE for a special one night at WrestleMania XXV. This was kind of a reunion for a 25 Diva Battle Royal that included old school WWE Divas. It ended when she was defeated by Beth Phoenix who will be in tomorrow’s part two of my Tuesday Takedown.


Alexondra Lee

December 08, 2009 by pvc

Today I like to introduce as Tuesday Take Down. Either way my entries show some force one way or another today taking down their men. Alexondra Lee is an American actress who can be remembered for a regular showing in "Party of Five" playing Callie. She made a guest appearance in October 5, 2006 in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in the "Toe Tags" episode. Her role was one of five corpses recounting the tales of their death.


Way earlier at the age of four, she took up ballet. Her hard work gained her an opportunity to dance in The Nutcracker Suite with the New York City Ballet Company. She then danced at the New York City Ballet at seven years old.


Even with Alexondra small parts as an actress, she still grabs the attention of many. In 2001, she made Stuff magazine’s “101 Most Beautiful Women in The World" placing #81. Not bad far a limited appearance on the big screen but, she earned every bit of it with a short airing of “Special Unit 2”. Playing as Detective Kate Benson in season two’s “The Grain” she kicks guy’s asses in a latex dominatrix outfit.

Kendra Wilkinson

December 07, 2009 by pvc

Just married Kendra Leigh Wilkinson took on the name Kendra Leigh Baskett. She is a TV personality and glamour model. In April of 2004, she met Hugh Hefner at his 78th birthday party as a freak incident where she was hired as one of the "painted girls". (They are girls covered in body paint.) Hugh discovered her by seeing a picture shot by photographer Kim Riley on a fax machine at the Playboy Mansion and was curious to know who she was. After a formal meeting, he quickly asked for her to be one of his girlfriends and for her to move into the Playboy Mansion. She became famous for her role on the E! Reality-TV show “The Girls Next Door”. Interestingly, she was not a Playboy Playmate but, has appeared nude in the Girls Next Door pictorials. Recently this year in June, she created her very own new reality series.


In 2006, she was on the cover of Playboy September issue and on their Playboy Special Editions Sexy 100. One of the benefits for being one of Huge Hefner’s girlfriends. Kendra has also been in music videos such as Akon's "Smack That" and in 2007 Nickelback's "Rockstar" video. Looks like Hugh really influenced the dominatrix in her as she wear a vinyl dominatrix outfit and a vinyl chap like pants in her The Girls Next Door calendar shoot.



Victoria Silvstedt

December 07, 2009 by pvc

Real name Karen Victoria Silvstedt is known for being a Swedish model, actress, singer and Playboy Playmate of the Year. In addition, she is a radio, TV hostess and a former national-level skier in Sweden. She acquired many talents at an early age from 16 when she was a contestant in a contest at a local bar. Before I tell the punch line, what in the hell is she doing at a bar way under 21 or is that the way it is in Sweden? So getting back to the story, in the competition of her and 10 men, she won for the "Best Fake Orgasm". She took home as a prize a brand-new TV. When she told her mother how she won it, she told her it was a winning in a game of bingo. Hopefully mom won’t be reading this entry or it’ll be bingo for her!


When she competed in the Miss Sweden pageant, she ended up as first runner up. Her loss led to a signing of a contract with a Parisian modeling agent. This is where she started her career in high fashion with big time companies such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Loris Azzaro, Givenchy, Valentino, and Giorgio Armani. In 1993, she shot some photography work in frontal nudity for three years with Girls of Northern Europe.


This then lead to Playboy in 1996. Hugh Hefner discovered her and then approached her to be a Playboy centerfold. She made the Playmate of the Month in the December 1996 issue and became Playmate of the Year in 1997. She even ended up on Playboy’s June 1997 cover as well as the covers of Slitz May 1996, Stuff March 2003, FHM (UK) April 2006, GQ August 2006 and Glamour November 2008. Maxim couldn’t get enough of her that they put her on covers of their Maxim August 2004, Maxim May & October 2005 issues. She has also been in other magazines like Gear and Nuts.


In 2005, in a quest to find the “Sexiest Blonde in the World’, she placed second in the contest. In the UK, she began her new career hosting The Late Show on Virgin Radio and has guest hosted on the television show “Eurotrash”. In Italian television, she hosted a few shows and here in the states, she is seen in “Melrose Place” and MTV’s “The Real World”.

Iris Braydon

December 04, 2009 by pvc

My last entry for the week I bring an actress who was incredibly tough to research on as well as having extremely limited information. I was lucky enough to find this rare sighting of actress Iris Braydon in latex. Iris Braydon also goes by the nicknames of Iris Allen and Iris Alten. She stands at 5' 10 ½" (1.79 m) tall and is famous primarily for her acting career in several movies. One movie in particular of interest is her 2007 guest starring in "Women's Murder Club". The show was aired on the ABC Television Network from October 12, 2007 to May 13, 2008. A short lived show as well as her only guest appearance in one episode that was aired Friday, October 26 2007 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET). She appears in a very small part as “The Latex Girl” on Episode 3 titled Blind Dates and Bleeding Hearts.


Asia Argento

December 04, 2009 by pvc

Asia Aria Anna Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento or better known as her professional name Asia Argento is an Italian movie and TV actress/director. In her earlier days when she was born in Rome, her name was declined by the city registry office because they didn’t accept it as an appropriate name. So she had to keep Aria Argento as her official name. She began acting in small roles in the movie “Sergio Citti” at the age of nine. When she was 14, she also played a small part in the 1989 movie “The Church” which was written and produced by her father Dario Argento. Then in 1993 when she officially became an adult at 18, she filmed in her first nude scene in the movie “Trauma”. I can definitely be sure that she was traumatized in her life especially with her distance relationship with her father as she states:


I never acted out of ambition; I acted to gain my father’s attention. It took a long time for him to notice me – I started when I was nine, and he only cast me when I was 16. And he only became my father when he was my director. I always thought it was sick to choose looking at yourself on a big screen as your job. There has to be something crooked in your mind to want to be loved by everybody. It’s like being a prostitute, to share that intimacy with all those people.


It was in 2000 when Asia wrote and then directed her first movie “Scarlet Diva”. She can be seen in magazine covers of Vanity Fair (Italy) and Rolling Stone. In her 2005 appearance of “Land of the Dead”, she is shown wearing a killer black PVC vest. Now that’s what I call BELLA!



Mariella Frostrup

December 03, 2009 by pvc

Mariella Frostrup is a TV presenter and journalist who is best remembered on British television and radio for her art program appearances. Besides these common showings, she is unique for having a reputation for her voice which was voted as the sexiest female voice on television. It has been the challenge for hunting for “the perfect voice” where Mariella’s voice qualifies as one of the best. It has been deemed supreme that it is often used for television commercials.


She has presented for the BBC Radio 2 show “The Green Room” and is a regular presenter for “Open Book” for Radio 4 which is aired on most Sundays and Thursdays. Her political views are seen as having left-of-center. As a writer, she writes for The Guardian, The Observer, The Mail on Sunday, Harpers & Queen and the New Statesman. She judges for the Man Booker Prize, the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Evening Standard British Film Awards being an art critic. She is even seen on the cover of FHM magazine.


Her work has appeared on television shows like the series “Have I Got News for You” and the sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous”. She’s interviewed many different celebrities, writers and other artists as well as television programs like one on travel. Her guest appearances includes herself in the series of “Coupling”. There was one episode when one of the characters fantasizes about her and then meets her in person. I could totally see the possibility of fantasizing about her especially seeing her in a latex cat suit.



Shilpa Shetty

December 03, 2009 by pvc

Shilpa Shetty is an Indian model and movie actress. Her native language is Tulu, she not only speaks English but, Kannada, Marathi, Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Telugu, Urdu and basic French. She has become among the tallest actresses in Bollywood at a height of 5 ft 10 inches (178 cm). It was at age 16 in 1991 when she began her career modeling for Limca and made her first movie debut with “Baazigar” in 1993. In this movie, she plays a woman murdered by a crazy boyfriend. Following a year later in 1994, she starred in her first leading role in the movie “Aag”. As for her first her first major Bollywood movie, she plays the character of Prathna Thakur in the action thriller “Auzaar”. It was since her 1993 appearance in Baazigar, she is seen in about 40 Bollywood, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies.


In 2006, Shilpa experienced some ups in her life as well as a few negative attention. Based on the original UK show Strictly Come Dancing, she became a judge on “Jhalak Dikhlaja” which is a Sony Entertainment TV dance show. Little did she know that the same year on she would have been judged and highly criticized herself. It was this same year in April, she became a victim for a warrant on charges of obscenity. It was a Madurai court that demanded a non-bailable warrant against her for "posing in an obscene manner" in photographs published by a Tamil newspaper. In her defense she stated that the pictures were freeze-frame shots from a new movie that only showed her navel.


"As far as my photographs go, what is obscene about it? If navel-showing is obscenity, then our traditional Indian outfit - the traditional sari - should be banned in the first place."


Good thing the Madurai court didn’t see her in vinyl as obscenity or that would have really been an outrage! Then in 2007 she became a contestant on the “Celebrity Big Brother (UK) TV show. During the show, she indicated that she might have been a victim of racism with her competitors. In the end, she became the winner with a 63% final vote. She was not only my first Indian entry her but, the first Indian celebrity included in the celebrity version of Big Brother. From this showing, she earned about (£367,500 GBP) Rs.31.5 m. Not bad for a few days work. Speaking with Davina McCall (See my past entry of Davina), she told her:   


"I just want every Indian to be extremely proud that I'm in here."


Later after the Big Brother winning in August 2008, she hosted the Indian version of Big Brother’s second season “Bigg Boss”. She is also seen in many other parts of the media like the front covers of magazines such as Marie Claire May 2008, Blender (India) April 2009, Cosmopolitan April 2009, Good Housekeeping June 2009, Vogue June 2009, Harper’s Bazaar India October 2009 and Shape. She even joined PETA in March 2006 as part of an advertising campaign against the use of wild animals in circuses.


Grazielli Massafera

December 02, 2009 by pvc

Another Brazilian beauty Grazielli Massafera is an ex model and a television actress. In her earlier days before celebrity status in 2004, she represented the state in the Miss Brasil contest and won the Miss Paraná Beauty pageant contest. She then took on the title of "Miss Brasil Internacional" in third place. This placing granted her the right to represent Brazil in the Miss International contest which is usually held in China. In the international pageant, she did not place in the semi-finals. If you notice in a few magazine covers, she is recognized as Grazi, this is the name she is commonly known by which at first threw me off in the beginning as well.


 Finally a year later in 2005, her life really began to change. She became a contestant in the fifth season of the reality show “Big Brother” (Brazil). The show is also known as Big Brother Brasil (BBB). She made history with the combination of her excellent looks and personality to become the second Big Brother contestant to turn in to a real celebrity. It was after the show when she began writing commercial deals, appearing in events, and of course on the covers of magazines. A few magazine covers she’s seen on are Rolling Stone and Marie Claire (Brazil) September 2009. She also made Playboy (Brazil) in the August 2005 issue posed nude. In Brazil, the nude posing is usually accepted compared to the American version. She quickly became one of their highest-paid stars to pose in the magazine. It was her edition of Playboy which sold double the amount compared to a regular edition and this resulted in the best-selling cover of that year.


Also, right after the show, Grazielli signed a deal with Brazil’s big deal TV channel “Globo” for a one year contract. She was given the opportunity to be a reporter on “Caldeirão do Hulk” as well as a children show host for Xuxa. (See my earlier entry on Xuxa) Then in 2008, she continued her appearance on TV with her first starring role in the soap “Negócios da China”. It is no doubt by now that she became one of the most popular stars in the country and that her televised appearances are a guaranteed success for high ratings. The two pictures shown are from an old shoot from the Joyce Pascowitch magazine. She appears on the front cover of the magazine in a vibrantly fashionable latex outfit.
