To end the week off, I made today another Flashback Friday. Some of us actually remember the classic 1989 movie “The Punisher” but, how many remember the villain Lady Tanaka? Well, Lady Tanaka is played by American actress Kim Miyoris who was born with then name Cheryl Utsunomiya. Kim has been in a few television shows like “Murder She Wrote”, “JAG” and “24”. In the 1980s from 1982 to 1984, she played resident Dr. Wendy Armstrong for the first two seasons of the medical drama “St. Elsewhere”. Shown from the thumbnails, Kim as Lady Tanaka comes in as a shiny black widow in creaking PVC along with her daughter played by actress Zoshka Mizak. Now that’s what I call good family taste!
My other British presenter Zoë Ball is a TV and radio personality. She is most remembered for being the first female host of the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show and as a presenter in the 1990s for the BBC One’s Saturday morning children’s show “Live & Kicking”. Her last breakfast show ended on March 30, 2000. As mentioned in my other entry, both had connections with Sara Cox and Sara took over the show after Zoë left the breakfast show. As a little reunion in September 2007, they both celebrated 40 years of Radio 1 hosting a show together. For the records, Zoë became the first major British celebrity in radio after co-hosting the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show in October 1997. After graduating to become the sole host, this also made her the first female DJ to accomplish this.
The children’s shows made her television debut. She was a child in the studio audience on Saturday mornings along with her father as a guest for “Saturday Superstore”. Her TV career was as a runner at Granada Television and researcher on BSkyB. This was when she worked for two years as a researcher for quiz shows. A few programs she presented include hosting “The Big Breakfast” and “The Priory” on Channel 4 and pre-school program “Playdays”. From 1996-1998, she presented “Top of the Pops” rotating with co- presenters and DJs Jayne Middlemiss. (See Jayne Middlemiss past posting)
Zoë has co-hosting the BBC reality show “Strictly Dance Fever”. It was in 2005 when she then became a contestant on the third series of its sister show “Strictly Come Dancing”. At the end, she placed #3. She also co-hosted ITV1's “Extinct” at the end of 2006. According to an interview and spread with “Sky” magazine which she also has been seen on the front cover of, she re-created the naked pose from Christine Keeler’s famous backturned chair. She also has been on the cover of “Esquire” magazine issues December/January 1997/98 & January 1999. The photos of Zoë in her highly emphasized glossy black PVC pants were from “Shooting Stars”. Included is a link to the short clip as her pants make an opening on the show.
Today I present the presenters who love to shine in the spotlight or should I say in more ways than one. The Brits really know how to shine with attention when in comes to presenting. My two entries both have a connection with Sara Cox who happens to be from one of my earlier entries last year. I guess all British presenters know each other. As Sara Cox seems to be a familiar name today, Emma B may be too since the UK seems to breed many famous Emma Bs.
Today’s Emma B is Emma Boughton who is a radio presenter in the UK. She got the name Emma B when she worked for Creation Records. Her earliest experience in the radio industry began at age 7 as part of a drama on BBC “Radio Oxford”. Also at Radio Oxford, she presented a daily children’s show and was named Susan Zinc. It was in April 1998 when she worked for BBC Radio 1 presenting an Early Saturday morning show from 4–7am. The following year in 1999, she took over the Saturday afternoon show from 1–3pm co-presenting with Sara Cox and the Sunday night/Monday graveyard hour 1–4am.
By early 2005, she quit Radio 1 and began work in August 2005 with London’s “Heart 106.2” to present the Sunday evening show from 7-10pm. In the London area, her show was the first female solo show to win the #1 spot on the drivetime slot. While still working for Heart, she sometimes presented shows for its sister station “LBC” and the BBC’s “Five Live” service. Then at the end of July 2009, she left Heart to relocate with her family to Ibiza. She has presented other programs like “Top of the Pops” for the BBC World Service, a number of youth programs such as “The Base” on ITV and has appeared on GMTV every so often. The photo was during Halloween as you can see she sneaks a vinyl top under her bustier. Scary, but always sexy.
My other entry today definitely qualifies for a rare sighting. So rare, people didn’t even know that much information about Wendy Benson or even have pictures of her as a PVC dominatrix. Born in Scotland, UK she is an American actress seen in a handful of TV shows. She is married and has taken on the name of Wendy Benson-Landes. She has played the character of Joanne Hertz which is the segment producer for Piper Halliwell at her restaurant Quake in the popular TV series of “Charmed”.
From 1998-1999, her character was born in “Unhappily Ever After” aired on WB. She played the part as Barbara Caulfield in Season 5. The character is Tiffany’s love hate friend as her enemy sometimes. She also attends Northridge Junior College along with Tiffany and Ryan who happens to have an attraction to her. Around July 19, 1999 (Season 5, Episode 21), Wendy plays a PVC dominatrix on the episode titled “Tiffany Tutors the Teachers”. This was when Tiffany finds out that all the teachers in her school failed an exam for teaching. This worried Tiffany thinking all her credibility from Northridge Junior College would be worthless for Harvard. So she takes drastic measures to teach her teachers so that they can pass the exam. Stuck educating her teachers, this is when she brings her friend Barbara all suited up in full PVC dominatrix gear to whip the class into shape. If you ask me, this sounds like a sex education class and I would be more than happy to have stayed later for help class afterwards or even detention.
I decided to continue another day with rare sightings of media fetish beginning with Amy Pietz. She is a movie and TV actress which has made a number of guest appearances. Some of these appearances include Ally McBeal, Burn Notice, The Drew Carey Show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Closer. From 1995 to 1999, she played the character Annie Spadaro in the NBC sitcom “Caroline in the City”. For her work of excellence, in 1999 she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award. In one episode, Annie walks in to her next door neighbor’s apartment in a sexy red latex dress. She then brags about the number of men at the bar lining up to get a chance of having a date with her. She then comes back later begging her neighbor Caroline to cut her free from the dress. Once again, looks like the dress was so tight, she was unable to take it off. Sound very similar to my past posting last year on August 17, 2009 with Becki Newton?
Continuing on with my other “Grownups” actress, British actress Sheridan Smith gets even kinkier with PVC as she is seen from the photos. She is better remembered for the character Janet Keogh (née Smith) in the BBC sitcom “Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps” since the first series in 2001. As Janet, who begins as the girlfriend, then becomes the wife and becomes the widow of Jonny Keogh.
In 1999 to 2000, she plays Emma who is the girlfriend of Antony (Ralf Little) in “The Royle Family”. She also plays Cleo Martin in “Love Soup” and companion Lucie Miller next to Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor on the radio series of “Doctor Who”. She has also performed in Broadway plays playing as Audrey in the “Little Shop of Horrors” at The Menier Chocolate Factory, London in November 2006. In March 2007, it then moved to The Duke Of York’s Theatre and then another move at the end of June 2007 to The New Ambassadors Theatre because of a very successful showing. Finally it all ended in September 2007. A year later in 2008, she received a nomination for her work in the show with the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Another show she took lead in was the musical version of “Legally Blonde” as Elle Woods. The show in December 2009 went from Broadway to London’s West End.
As for her scheduled recent work expected to be aired Easter 2010, she is currently filming another special of “Jonathan Creek”. On May 7, 2006, Sheridan appears in the first series of the sitcom Grownups aired on BBC Three. The second series began on August 5, 2007 and the third began in October 2008. Since 2006, she has played the character Michelle Booth which is a hypocritical 27 year old nutritionist and the main character of the show. As Michelle, she lives in the trendy Northern Quarter of Manchester and lives a life of contradiction. Due to her job, she has a thing for alcohol, squirty cream and flumps which is her favorite food. On that note, guess who gets a little turn on and does a little hardcore kink herself influenced from her best friend Claire from a past episode in her PVC catsuit!? Looks familiar from my other entry? Yup, see Sheridan as she gets super kinky in a PVC outfit matched with a latex hood. Talk about HOLLY COW! I believe this was the episode aired on February 10, 2009 (Season 3, Episode 5) titled “Cow”.
I begin the week off with two actresses from the 2006 TV series of “Grownups”. Once again, thanks to the British program, we are able to see some more rare sightings of fetish in the media. Grownups was aired on BBC3 since 2006. From the entries I am about to present, one can see why the title of the program was suitable to be called for Grownups.
Actress Fiona Wass is also a choreographer. In 1998, she has performed with the Hull Truck company. She is probably better known on TV in “Linda Green” and “Oddsquad”. Now for all of us here at Fetish Buzz, she is remembered as Claire Finnerty from Grownups. She played the character from 2006-2007 as Michelle’s best friend – a beautician. Her character is very wild and she has a passion for biting men. Because she equally responds the same way to men and women, she can be seen as either bisexual or a single young woman open to experiment by flirting and having fun before settling down. She makes this very clear as she is seen in one episode coming to work in a PVC catsuit. Wouldn't that be a great uniform for work. From the video, it becomes very clear her experiment in her PVC catsuit turns even women on.
The popular and probably the most outspoken opinionated rising super star Lily Allen is a British recording artist, talk show host, and actress. During her years as a teenager, she created her style of musical tastes from glam rock to alternative. As rebellious as teens can be, at fourteen she ran away from home so that she could attend the Glastonbury Festival. The following year she dropped out of school to dedicate her passion on mastering her performing and compositional talents.
It was in 2006 when she began her music project would which eventually be her first studio album and its first mainstream single. That July, her first single “Smile” made the top spot on the UK Singles Chart. It was on July 3, 2006 when the original album released as a limited-edition 12” vinyl in the UK. Then on July 17, 2006, the full CD released after and the rest of Europe. By the time the end of the year came around in December, her music video for Smile was aired on many music channels along with the song getting minimal air time. Her debut album “Alright, Still” became a big hit in the international market. Before this debut album was released in the US, Entertainment Weekly declared it as one of the top 10 albums of 2006. Finally on January 30, 2007, the album made its debut in the US placing #20 on the Billboard Album Charts. It sold over 2.6 million copies and won her nominations for the Grammy, BRIT and MTV Video Music Awards. In 2008, she accepted the BMI songwriting award for Smile and the next year beginning January 2009, the album sold 960,000 copies in the UK and 520,000 copies in the US.
Her second album was “It's Not Me, It's You” which debuted as #1 on the UK Albums Chart and the Australian ARIA Charts. On February 9, 2009, it was launched in the UK and the US the next day. This album contained popular singles such as “The Fear” and “Fuck You” which were mainly hits in Europe. Fuck You was a song that was originally written about the British National Party, instead it made it’s way directed at George W. Bush. The album made its debut as #1 in the UK, Canada, and Australia. It also placed #2 and #5 respectively in Europe and the US. It also held a #5 spot in the Pan-European Charts on February 26. By late May 2009, her song placed #68 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts causing it to be the highest ranking of any song from the album and the album became certified as platinum in the UK.
Aside from her musical success, Lily began hosting her own talk-show titled “Lily Allen and Friends”. She signed on a deal for one series on BBC Three TV in intended to be a social networking to help jump her music career. This wasn’t the only showing of her TV appearances. On June 12, 2009, she did a scene in the Australian soap opera “Neighbours”. She’s done numerous performances such as the 2008 New Year’s Eve episode of Jools Holland's Hootenanny, performing The Fear (February 2009) on GMTV, in the States on The Today Show (February 10, 2009), The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (February 16, 2009), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (February 18, 2009), the Jimmy Kimmel Live show (April 3), she was interviewed and performed on The View (April 21) and on the Late Night with David Letterman (April 24).
She even launched a line of dresses, shoes, and accessories in May 2007 called “Lily Loves”. In 2008, she won the Glamour Women of the Year Awards which was the “Editors Special Award”. She got a nomination for the Highstreet Fashion Award under the category of “Best Dressed Celebrity”. Even magazines got a piece of the action with the British weekly style magazine “Look” under the readers poll described her as the ninth best style role model. Elle (UK) magazine and also featured her on the front cover of the October 2009 issue, recognized her as a person who is not overly trendy in her fashion choices. She made the third coolest person of the year in the NME Cool List for 2006 in “NME” Magazine. “Blender” made her the “Number One Reason to Love ‘07”and “Hottest Woman of Pop/R&B”. Lily has accumulated also a few other mixed feelings with BBC Three’s list of Most Annoying People of 2006 placing #10. Then she get’s the votes of 20,000 teenagers by the social networking website “Bebo” which places her as the #4th coolest celebrity in December 2008. Then in 2009, she made Esquire’s list of 60 “Brilliant Brits 2009” and the same year became the subject of cover stories for both “Spin” and “Q” magazines. When she was interviewed by “Gay Times” and favored equality for gays, she won them over becoming the first female on the cover of that issue in 12 years. Other magazines she has made cover appearances include Marie Claire (UK) February 2008, Glamour (UK) April 2008, GQ (UK) January 2008 & October 2009, Spin February 2009 and Harper's Bazaar (Russia) Jan 2010.
The photos of Lily below in all the thumbnails where from her performing her new material Unplugged at the “Radio Zoo Session” on January 2009. She performed three songs at the Absolute Radio’s Zoo Session. The three songs were “22”, “The Fear” and “He Wasn’t There”. As a true rock star, she’s got the jeans matched with the vinyl jacket on as she rocks out.
British actress Jaime Murray is better known for her roles as Stacie Monroe in “Hustle” from series 1-4 and Lila Tournay in the Showtime series “Dexter”. Now in Fetish Buzz she is known as an actress with an evil side. Earlier, just before taking her A Levels, she was confirmed for dyslexia. She has modeled clothing for “Debenhams” department store in TV ads. Her modeling is contracted with “Models 1” in London. With a little modeling experience, she has appeared in men’s as well as a few women’s magazines. These magazines include GQ, Mayfair, FHM, Hello!, Cosmopolitan and OK!.
Jaime’s actressing in her earlier TV showings began with small parts in BBC One’s Casualty, The Bill, Love Soup, and ShakespeaRe-Told: The Taming of the Shrew. She has guest starred as Nadia Sobell who was the lover of the company’s chief executive in “The Mentalist” episode Carnelian Inc and starred in the UK movie “Devil's Playground”. Known for Stacie in Hustle, she made a future career opportunity from one episode of Hustle. It was one episode when she impressed her co-star Robert Vaughn when modeling a Wonder Woman costume. It was stated from a few online sources that he presented it to studio executives in Hollywood. The success became another door of opportunity for Jaime to be invited to audition for the actual Wonder Woman in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Her other known role as Lila in Dexter was a regular role in the second season starting in late 2007. The part played a few scenes topless which she mentioned as “intimidating”. Speaking about intimidating, the same year she makes an intimidating character in “The Deaths of Ian Stone”. In this movie, she plays the character Medea who is a dominatrix-demon derived from the Greek wife of Argonaut Jason. An intimidating sexy dominatrix-demon she is especially as one can see from the pictures of her in a red rubber outfit.
Today’s theme is Torture Thursday. I must admit, it is a torture seeing these entries today in fetish torture roles but, I'm sure we love every minute of it. Lisa Rogers is a Welsh occasional actress and a TV presenter. She has made appearances in movies, TV programs, radio and the theater. She made her first staring role when hosting “Find Me A Weather Presenter”. This was around June 2000 when she was seen on Channel 4’s “Big Breakfast”. She also guest starred on the eighth series of “Never Mind the Buzzcocks”.
In August 2008, she was scheduled to be a presenter for a documentary. There was a change of course along the way and she eventually became a polemic about genital plastic surgery titled “The Perfect Vagina”. With this change, instead of being a presenter, her status turned in to Author. The clips shown were from her work as a presenter. She is seen as a Mistress/Dominatrix presenter for “Mistresses” for nine episodes in 2003.
