  • Bo Derek appointment to Horse Racing Board put on hold by state Senate

    Actress Bo Derek may be a "10," but state lawmakers Wednesday indefinitely put off a decision on whether to confirm her appointment by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to a state board. The Senate Rules Committee delayed action on the governor’s appointments of Derek, Keith Brackpool, David J. Israel and Richard A. Rosenberg to the California Horse Racing Board. If confirmed, they would all serve well into the administration of the next governor, who takes office in January.
  • Arianna Huffington Gives Michelle Obama “A Ten”

    Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, told Bob Schieffer on’s “Washington Unplugged” that she thinks highly of First Lady Michelle Obama’s decisions to move her mother to the White House, create a vegetable garden and develop an “approachable” personal style. “This is fantastic, an unqualified yes, there is nothing to complain about,” Huffington said. “Even if you don’t terribly like that particular outfit,” she said of Mrs. Obama’s fashion sense, “you know it is what she loves and what she looks good in.” As for the first lady’s protocol-breeching personal contact with the Queen in London, Huffington had...

    Actress-turned-activist Bo Derek is spearheading a campaign to stop the export of horsemeat to Europe and Japan. Three European-owned factories in the U.S. send some 26 million pounds of horsemeat overseas each year. Now Derek, who first came to national attention in the 1979 movie "10,” has joined other celebrities and horse lovers in an attempt to shut down the plants — two in Texas and one in Illinois. In September, the House of Representatives passed the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, which bans the transportation and sale of horses for human consumption. But it’s unclear whether the Senate will...

    THE iconic US actress Bo Derek has been appointed as special envoy of the Secretary of State for Wildlife Trafficking Issues. Derek, best-known for her role in the 1979 feature film "10", appeared at a ceremony at the US State Department and said she was honoured to accept such a "daunting" role and to do her part to help save the environment. "I know my participation in this is going to be small compared to people actively working in the field, but I might be able to help with public awareness," said Ms Derek, dressed in a black pant suit...
  • Shallow Men And The Women Who Suffer (The Male Lust For The Supermodel Perfect Mate Alert)

    The miracle of Purim owes much to a superficial, womanizing male who set about dating as many women as possible to find the one that was the most beautiful. Ahasuerus is like so many shallow men today who reduce women to nothing but a slim figure and a pretty face. But in the end, the story of Esther makes it clear that the secretly Jewish queen was chosen not for her looks, but because she "found grace and favor" in the eyes of all who beheld her. There was a womanly dignity, a sublime feminine majesty, to Esther that the...

    January 6, 2006 - Hollywood has a richly-deserved reputation as an extremely liberal town populated by celebrities who rarely hesitate to assail their audiences with their political opinions. Between bluffing that they'd leave the United States if Bush was elected (Alec Baldwin), demanding that he be impeached (Barbra Streisand), hosting Air America radio shows (Janeane Garofalo, Al Franken), consorting with Fidel Castro (Danny Glover) and making romantic movies about Stalinist mass-murderer and t-shirt icon Che Guevara (The Motorcycle Diaries), Hollywood has gotten quite fat suckling at the liberal teat. But just as there may be a few Britney Spears fans...

    Why Men Prefer Pretty Faces So you think beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Think again. According to new research from the University of Exeter in Great Britain, the preference for pretty faces over ugly ones is embedded in our brains from the moment of birth and possibly prior to birth. Newborn babies come fully equipped with built-in preferences, including a preference for an attractive face, that help them make sense of their new environment, report the BBC News Online and Newsweek magazine. The Exeter researchers showed more than 100 infants two images that were placed side by...

  • Bo Derek lobbies against horse slaughter

    SPRINGFIELD -- Horse slaughter opponents applied star power Tuesday when they brought in a Hollywood movie star to lobby their cause. Actress Bo Derek, national spokeswoman for the National Horse Protection Coalition, visited Springfield to present complaints from animal-rights activists. Horses, she said, are companions not cuisine. "They deserve better. It's not humane. We don't raise them for food. We raise them as pets or for sport," said Derek, famous for portraying the woman of Dudley Moore's dreams in the 1979 hit "10." The House narrowly rejected banning horse slaughtering in March, but supporters in the Senate have resurrected the...

    President Bush will likely win re-election and here's one reason why: Bo Derek. A few weeks ago, Bo made a surprise visit to Bush-Cheney headquarters in Arlington, Va. Staffers said she is more beautiful and lovely than ever, which makes sense. Bo is beautiful because she is poised and eloquent. That got me to thinking about the other Hollywood celebrities. Most are to the far left, and they've been busy of late. When they're not weaving anti-Bush messages into television shows and movies, they're holding anti-Bush rallies and fund-raisers for John Kerry. They're more united than ever in their burning...

    Bo Derek and her date -- John Corbett, of "Northern Exposure" and "Sex and the City" fame -- had gotten up from their table at last night's White House correspondents dinner at the Hilton Washington when they set eyes on one suddenly popular young man in a crowd studded with movie stars, comedians and political leaders (and even television's "Bachelorette," Trista Rehn). The young man in question was Lance Vandaniker. He's 23 years old, hails from Sevierville, Tenn., and he'd never been in a room filled with famous people before. He also happened to have his left arm encased in...
