Today is a good day. I found jeans that fit! And by the way… I wasn’t paid to say this 😅 I am sure you guys remember me asking everyone for recommendations for clothing companies that provide stretchy jeans. I searched up a lot but after speaking to @barbellappareleurope i knew I had to try their jeans. And you know what… MY LEGS FITTED! With 17 inch calves, 28 inch quads and a waist to match, I find jeans PRETTY challenging😅 Especially since my legs are short, I can’t remember the last time I had jeans that I felt comfy in. But with these bad boys, I can run, squat and all sorts! I’ve basically worn them all weekend🙈 I know a lot of you wanted to know my results so here you go! @barbellappareleurope and @barbellapparel for US.

Rodiney Santiago met a new friend inspiring him to share his thoughts on being vegetarian:

View this post on Instagram

“When I see bacon, I see a pig, I see a little friend, and that’s why I can’t eat it. Part of me becoming a vegetarian was due the fact I would look at my burger, then look at dogs, and I wouldn’t see any difference and would suddenly question myself on why dogs have rights and others animals like pigs don’t. What’s the difference? A year ago I personally choose not to eat them anymore because I educated myself on factory farming and animal cruelty, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living beings with feelings. I just couldn’t disconnect myself from the truth for that moment forward in my life. Our rationality does not make us superior to the beings that dwell here on earth, it is in fact, the other way around, we are responsible for all the imbalances that occur here. Once you understand and educate your senses you realize that all animals are here in the planet with us not for us ! 🌱 🐷🐮🐔🦢🐑🐏 🐶🐱❤️#vegetarian #exuma #pigbeach #exumabahamas #bahamas #loveanimals #loveanimalsdonteatthem #peta #animalrights #awakening #awake #awakenedsoul

Memorial Day Flashback: BBQ With Mariah Carey, Olivia Newton-John & Tyson Beckford

Michael (L) with the fab Mariah Carey and me (R)

I originally posted this in 2015, but as I thinking about Memorial Days past, this was one for the books:


So picture this: I’m laying on the couch having just taken a Vicodin for the tooth ache that simply will not go away.

(Regular readers know I’ve had not the best week with a tooth ache that wouldn’t quit and since it was a long holiday weekend my dentist’s office was closed. So I was medicating as best I could LOL.)

Hubby Michael comes in and asks “How are you??” As the pain meds are kicking in I stay positive and say “I’m ok.” I’m not really, but I’m going for the “think positive” thing here.

He repeats, “No, how ARE you? We just got invited to an impromptu Memorial Day BBQ at Mariah Carey’s house. Olivia Newton-John and Tyson Beckford are going too. Can you make it?”

At this point I”m pretty sure my hearing is on the fritz, too, as I thought I heard him say we’re invited to Mariah Carey’s house for a party???

And yes, that is what happened.

Thankfully, Vicodin isn’t the strongest thing in the world.

You don’t pass up an invite like this. I get up, shower, put my best “casual chic/going to Mariah Carey’s house” kind of outfit and off we go.

I’d never met Mariah but she was a doll. She and Tyson are old friends; and she and Olivia have sung together before.

I had a great time, was uber-impressed with the gorgeous house she’s renting during her Vegas residency at Caesars Colosseum. Of course, like every party, we all congregated in the outdoor kitchen, chatting and eating burgers. You know, your every day “I’m at a party with international superstars each in their own right” kind of party.

Very cool way to end Tyson’s headlining gig with the Chippendales as he was selling out just about every night. Olivia is now back in town at the Flamingo Las Vegas as her residency resumes. And we’ll be seeing Mariah back at Caesars Colosseum in July.

When I wake up from my Vicodin induced sleep, I’m going to have the best dream to tell Michael.

Check the pics of shiny happy people below.

Tyson Beckford Rocks The House At Chippendales In Las Vegas

International super model, fashion icon and actor, Tyson Beckford, returned to the Chippendales stage in Las Vegas for an unprecedented fourth engagement this weekend as the male revue’s celebrity guest host.

After breaking box office records during his three previous appearances, Beckford returned to the award-winning #1 male revue with a sexy red carpet appearance and opening night performance and celebration on Saturday, September 29 2018, at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

“This cast is my extended family,” says Beckford. “There’s not a time I’m in Vegas, even when I’m not doing the show, that I don’t come by to see the guys, my brothers. From the first day I walked into this theatre I’ve felt at home and being back really feels like I never left. And to perform for 300-400 people every night is such a great confidence booster.”

A gala opening reception was held at the Flirt Lounge inside the Chippendales Theatre Complex at the Rio and featured Beckford and the cast of Chippendales mingling and taking photographs with partygoers who were enjoying signature cocktails.

“We are thrilled to bring Tyson back,” says Kevin Denberg, Managing Partner, Chippendales. “Our audiences have grown accustomed to Tyson; his star-power, charisma and sex appeal are the perfect compliment to our already sexually charged show.”

The critics agree that the original male super-model was the one the audiences wanted.

After his debut with the Chippendales in 2015, the Las Vegas Sun raved, “Fans of Beckford will not leave the show disappointed, as he not only flexes his buff bod throughout the adult male revue, but also bares his backside in a solo act with a female member of the audience…Beckford fits like a glove in Chippendales.”

Other celebrities who have stepped into the Chippendales spotlight include Dancing with the Stars and America’s Next Top Model champ, Nyle DiMarco, everyone’s favorite childhood crush Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering, and Dancing with the Stars Mirror Ball Champion Tony Dovolani.

The Chippendales have recently revamped their show with new numbers, music, and high-flying acrobatics. The already sexy production is now amped to hot and heavy heights with the return of Beckford.

The dynamic lighting and musical staging is on point and the signature strip style, combined with edgy dance moves and pop music, make Chippendales an audience and critic’s pick!

And yes, men are always welcome at Chippendales 🙂

Beckford’s limited engagement runs through November 3, 2018 (Thursday through Saturday performances).

After breaking box office records during his previous engagements, Beckford returns to the award-winning male revue at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino for six weeks only, Sept. 27 through Nov. 3, 2018 (Thursday through Saturday performances).

“We are thrilled to bring Tyson back,” says Kevin Denberg, Managing Partner, Chippendales. “Our audiences have grown accustomed to Tyson; his star-power, charisma and sex appeal are the perfect compliment to our already sexually charged show.”

“This last year has been amazing with some new television and film projects but, being asked back to join my brothers at Chippendales on stage is always an honor,” said Beckford. “I love Vegas and the cast and any chance I have to perform for live audiences is always a guaranteed good time – I can’t wait to put on those cuffs and collars again.”

In reviewing the supermodel’s star turn with the men of Chippendales, the Las Vegas Sun wrote, “Fans of Beckford will not leave the show disappointed, as he not only flexes his buff bod throughout the adult male revue, but also bares his backside in a solo act with a female member of the audience…Beckford fits like a glove in Chippendales.”

Chippendales, the original male revue, recently celebrated its 39th anniversary as a brand, and its 16th year headlining in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

And yes, men are always welcome at Chippendales.
