Dahlia Derriere

Model Dahlia Derriere was one of the "James Girls" featured here in July, whom I found to be particularly charming and gracious. So charming, I asked her if she'd be interested in giving me an interview for a solo feature, so readers could find out a little more about her, and here it is.

Even though she considers herself a just regular girl who likes to model on occasion, Dahlia is currently one of the premiere pinup models on the East Coast. She's graced the pages of such popular magazines as Retro Lovely, Tease and Cake, and has an soon-upcoming feature in the debut issue of Tinsel. Her images have also adorned posters, calendars, and billboards in and around her region and she often poses for area artists. "It is such a delight to see different interpretations of yourself put to paper," she tells me.

Also a lady with a good head on her shoulders, Dahlia has some words of wisdom for young ladies interested in going into modeling, whether it be professionally or just as a sideline. The above, unedited, photo is courtesy of Dahlia, herself, proving to those who haven't had the pleasure of meeting her, that her beauty is no studio creation.

Ms. Vampy Interviews Michelle Tomlinson and Denise Gossett

video
Above is the debut episode of Ms. Vampy entitled "Coffin Tawk" [sic] featuring Brooke Lewis as hostess Miss Vampy and her guests, actresses Michelle Tomlinson and Denise Gossett.

The show Ms. Vampy only ran for four episodes in 2009 but the Brooklyn vampiress followed it up in 2011 with Ms. Vampy's Tween Tawk, Teen Tawk & In Between Tawk, which ran for six episodes, and in 2013 with Ms. Vampy's Bites and Ms. Vampy's Love Bites, which ran for five and four episodes, respectively. You can read all about Ms. Vampy, and some about her alter ego, Brooke Lewis (who really impressed yours truly in the 2010 short, Sprinkles), at her official website.

As for Ms. Vampy's lovely Coffin Tawk guests; Denise has a long and impressive list of credits that begins with her small screen debut as Lena Luthor in the TV series Superboy. Michelle, whose acting resume is equally impressive, has a upcoming and exclusive interview that will appear at this very site in the near future.

Elizabeth Di Prinzio & Angela Fong for Boost Mobile

video
The above TV commercial that ran earlier this year for Boost Mobile, features Los Angeles-based actress and model Elizabeth Di Prinzio, as a girl getting her purse “snatched” by a do-gooding motorcycle passenger in the form of model and former BC Lions (of the CFL) cheerleader, Angela Fong.

You can see more of Elizabeth at her official website and she's on Twitter. See more of Angela, who's also a former WWE Diva, and may be better-know by wrestling fans by her ring name, Savannah, at her Facebook fan page, and she's also on Twitter.

Jasi Lanier for Heinz Ketchup

Top Hollywood stuntwoman Jasi Lanier was one of the "James Girls" featured in this article last month. She commented that she's a real tomboy but photographer Mike James helps her get in touch with her "girly side" during her photo shoots with him.

In the above 2007 commercial Jasi did for Heinz ketchup, she shows that tomboy side as she deals with an interruption that doesn't often occur while waiting for ketchup to emerge from the bottle. However, I suppose since Heinz ketchup is so thick and rich, it takes much longer for it to come out than it does for other brands, so anything can happen during that wait.

A native East-Coaster, Jasi said this commercial was one of her first gigs in California and "lots of fun, even though it was a tight space to fight in." See more of Jasi at her official website, Facebook fan page, and she's on Twitter. You can also see her most recent stuntwork in the upcoming films Barley Lethal (scheduled for release later this year), Fast & Furious 7, and Insurgent (both slated for release next year).

Carli Bei

(The following is the June interview Carli did with Tom Heckbert of the now-defunct website Eyestrane.com. It's being re-published here with Tom and Carli's permission.)

Carli Bei is one of the newest anchors on Naked News. For those who do not know, Naked News, billing itself as "the program with nothing to hide," is a subscription website featuring a real television newscast. The show is filmed in Toronto and airs 25-minute episodes, 6 days per week. The gorgeous, all-female cast delivers the news fully nude or while removing their clothes.

A very short time after starting at Naked News, Carli has become one of the most popular anchors due to her on-screen personality, reporting skills and of course, she’s easy on the eyes. Naked News anchors cover regular news such as current events, business news, tech, travel, TV, music, dumb criminals, and more. There are also interviews, and a regular "Versus" segment where the anchors compete with each other at various tasks like hockey, sumo, and darts with often hysterical results. Naked News anchors travel occasionally to cover events like Hedonism Jamaica or the AVN awards.

Welcome to My Darkside - Women in Horror Documentary

Slated for release in November, Last Doorway Productions' documentary Welcome to My Darkside, features interviews and commentary from 35 talented ladies who've made names for themselves in the horror genre. Their characters have been on the giving, as well as the receiving ends of murder weapons of choice, and they have worked on both sides of the camera.

Reyna Young, the lady behind Last Doorway, actually began compiling the interviews in 2008 and had the final cut completed the following year. However, the film just recently got distribution (from World Wide Multi Media), after what Reyna called a "wild ride." She conducted some of the interviews herself, and those ladies who filmed their own footage and sent it in to her, were credited as doing so.

James Girls

Artist and photographer Mike James has been capturing gorgeous ladies with his camera, pen, and sculptures for nearly 20 years. Every image he publishes are just as much illustrations as they are photographs. Featuring out-of-this-world sexy models in outfits that he often creates himself, the ladies' poses and themes range from the outrageous to the the fairly mundane. Of course, seeing ladies looking like this doing everyday tasks such as cooking breakfast or doing the laundry seems inconceivable, which is all part of Mike's unique style.

A pioneer in the resin sculpture field, Mike's figurines are consider the finest of their kind. Not mass produced, the characters are his own original creations that he carefully crafts himself to maintain quality. As for his work with a brush, some of his pin-up girls can be found on video cover art, speedboats, and even a professional lacrosse goalie's helmet.

I recently contacted Mike and asked him if he would tell me a little about some of his lovely models, whom he's dubbed "James Girls," to which he happily obliged. (I can't say the ladies in this article are his favorite models, because all the models he regularly shoots are his favorites, he tells me.) Of course, wanting to hear from the other side of Mike's camera lens, I also asked several of the James Girls what it's like to do a shoot with Mr. James. After hearing their replies, it's no wonder that most of the ladies who did their first shoot with Mike over a decade ago, still pose for him today. Above is one of those ladies, top Hollywood stuntwoman Jasi Lanier, from one of her most recent shoots with Mike, entitled "Caged Legs."

Ursula Taherian for Shiny Suds

Despite the title of this piece, the above 2009 commercial featuring actress Ursula Taherian is not for Shiny Suds bathroom cleaner. Shiny Suds doesn’t even exist. This is a faux commercial-within-a-commercial for Method’s safe and environmentally-friendly cleaning products. The fictitious Shiny Suds and its wonderfully-perverted bubbles are to illustrate Method’s message regarding the “dirty” and “dangerous” chemicals most household cleaning products contain and leave behind.

This ad was banned by many TV stations due to complaints over you-know-what by you-know-whom and was eventually pulled by Method for the same reason. To see more of Ursula (but not as much as the bubbles saw ….especially right after she dropped the loofa at the end), check out her official website.
