Who wore "Elizabeth & James" better: Alyssa Milano or Kristen Stewart?

I found these pictures of two talented actresses, Alyssa Milano & Kristen Stewart on Lady Glamourazzi wearing the same outfit "Elizabeth and James" by the Olsen Twins.


Alyssa Milano wore it at the Autism Speaks, Act of Love charity event last Thursday in Los Angeles and definitely rocked it, as you can see. 


Twilight star, Kristen Stewart wore the same outfit in Madrid, promoting the Twilight Saga: Eclipse, last year.

Both ladies are gorgeous, but the dress clearly fits better on Alyssa's body! Don't you agree?

Θα ανακοινωθούν ΠΟΤΕ τα αποτελέσματα για την εισαγωγή των αθλητών στα πανεπιστήμια, άραγε?

22/10/2010

Εδώ και μήνες εγώ και άλλοι εκατοντάδες αθλητές περιμένουμε υπομονετικά τα αποτελέσματα για την εισαγωγή μας στην τριτοβάθμια εκπαίδευση. Τα αποτελέσματα έπρεπε να έχουν ήδη ανακοινωθεί από το Υπουργείο Παιδείας, όμως κάτι τέτοιο δεν έχει συμβεί.Σήμερα ενημερώθηκα από το ίδιο το Υπουργείο ότι τα αποτελέσματα δεν πρόκειται να βγουν ούτε την επόμενη εβδομάδα, για τον λόγο ότι οι αιτήσεις, τις οποίες έχουμε καταθέσει από 1η Σεπτεμβρίου, θα επανεξεταστούν.

Τα μαθήματα στις σχολές ΑΕΙ και ΤΕΙ έχουν ήδη ξεκινήσει με αποτέλεσμα να μην έχουμε ιδέα σε ποια σχολή και πόλη ανήκουμε και να χάνουμε τα μαθήματα άσκοπα. Αναρωτιέμαι πως είναι δυνατόν να συμβαίνει κάτι τέτοιο, καθώς όπως προανέφερα οι δηλώσεις έχουν κατατεθεί από τις αρχές Σεπτεμβρίου και τώρα έχουμε φτάσει τέλος Οκτωβρίου. Η υπομονή μας έχει υπερβεί κάθε όριο και αυτή η κατάσταση είναι εντελώς απαράδεκτη.

Τέλος, θα ήθελα να προσθέσω ότι πέρα απο τα καθημερινά τηλεφωνήματα προς το Υπουργείο Παιδείας, έχω στείλει μηνύματα στο twitter της κυρίας Διαμαντοπούλου, που υποτίθεται οτι έχει ανοίξει αυτόν τον λογαριασμό για να μας ενημερώνει για την παιδεία της χώρας μας, αλλά και για να μπορούμε να ερχόμαστε σε επικοινωνία μαζί της. Παρ’όλα αυτά, δεν έχω λάβει ούτε μία απάντηση.

3/11/2010

Ο Νοέμβρης έφτασε, για την ακρίβεια εδώ και 3 ημέρες έχουμε μπει στον Νοέμβρη, αλλά τα αποτελέσματα ακόμα δεν έχουν βγει. Οι λόγοι για τους οποίους έχουν καθυστερήσει τόσο πολύ έχουν αναρτηθεί στην ιστοσελίδα του Υπουργείου Παιδείας... 

Καθημερινά ανοίγω τον υπολογιστή μου και η πρώτη σελίδα που επισκέπτομαι είναι αυτή του Υπουργείου Παιδείας Δια Βίου Μάθησης και Θρησκευμάτων, ελπίζοντας πως θα έχουν ανακοινωθεί τα αποτελέσματα ή έστω μία ανακοίνωση για το πότε θα ανακοινωθούν, αλλά τίποτα. Προσωπικά, έκανα εγγραφή στη σχολή που πέρασα αρχικά, χωρίς το 10%, και άρχισα να πηγαίνω από την πρώτη μέρα των μαθημάτων και βλέπω ότι έχουμε προχωρήσει αρκετά. Το ίδιο προφανώς συμβαίνει και στις άλλες σχολές και σκέφτομαι πόσο πίσω θα έχω μείνει όταν περάσω(αν βγουν ποτέ τα αποτελέσματα) στη σχολή που επιθυμώ με το 10%.

Τόσος αγώνας και σκληρή προπόνηση μέσα στα γήπεδα όλα αυτά τα χρόνια, τόσο άγχος για τις πανελλήνιες, τόση αγωνία για το αν θα είναι αρκετά τα μόρια για την εισαγωγή μου στο πανεπιστήμιο που θέλω εγώ και όχι κάποιο τυχαίο και αντί να έχουν τελειώσει όλα αυτά, η αγωνία συνεχίζεται Νοέμβρη μήνα. Όλη αυτή η κατάσταση είναι εξοργιστική και δεν υπερβάλλω καθόλου.Τουλάχιστον ας ανακοινωθεί μία ημερομηνία για το πότε θα ανακοινωθούν γα να ξέρουμε. Αύριο? Στις 15 Νοεμβρίου? Στις 20 Δεκεμβρίου? Του χρόνου τέτοια μέρα? Έλεος, απλά έλεος...

Alyssa Milano is the Boss!





    

Last night the 2010 VH1 Do Something! Awards were held in Los Angeles. Among the celebrity nominees was the outstanding Alyssa Milano, who won the Do Something on Twitter award. Ashton Kutcher, Hugh Jackman, Edward Norton and BP Global PR were the other nominees in the Twitter category, but Alyssa's almost 1 million followers decided that she deserves to win the award!

Twitter Queen, as her followers (including me of course!) call her, has been using twitter for over a year now. Her tweets include interesting news from all over the world, funny moments from her every day life, tweets about her big love baseball, but also about charity work. In December 19, Alyssa gave up her birthday and asked her followers to donate to Charity: Water, a nonprofit working to supply clean water to those in need. She managed to raise $92,568, which means 18 communities, 4628 people have clean water in Ethiopia! This has not only been extremely generous and helpful to the people that actually need it, but also has inspired many to follow on her footsteps. A recent example is Petra Hall, who has started a campaign on Charity: Water for her 21st birthday! You can check it out and donate HERE.

  Alyssa thanks us on her twitter pagebut I want to thank her, because if it wasn't for her, we probably wouldn't even know about Charity: Water and nothing would have happened without her. Alyssa deserves that award and so much more as she has made a difference in the world by using twitter. She shows the good side of being a celebrity and uses her strong voice to help and inspire people. Personally, I feel like I know Alyssa more thanks to twitter. She has always been my favorite actress and I'm blessed to have the ability to communicate with her, thing I never thought I would be able to do and actually get replies back. Alyssa has great qualities, besides being gorgeous and talented, she also is sweet to everyone, kind, generous, funny and most importantly she is always real, which makes her the perfect role model.

Keep on being wonderful Alyssa!

Madonna - Dolce & Gabbana collaboration





Queen of Pop and Fashion IconMadonna has joined forces with Dolce & Gabbana on a new collection of sunglasses, called MDG, which is currently on sale. M had collaborated with D & G before for the Spring 2010 campaign.




“We’re so excited. This further strengthens our relationship with Madonna, and it was a very constructive experience for us. She is very exacting and a professional who seeks perfection in everything she does, and this was no exception.” Gabbana said, but there were rumours that they wanted to replace Madonna with the much younger Rihanna.

The rumours were wrong! Who wants anyone else when you have the Queen MADONNA, who can do everything and always nail it!?

"MTV Movie Awards" or maybe... "Twilight Movie Awards"?

 I watched the MTV Movie Awards hosted by Aziz Ansari last night and I understood why they air the red carpet before the actual show. Because it is actually kinda dull. Some of the dialogues were funny, but most of them, were long and boring. That's why they try to attract the audience by watching the interviews and the stars' clothes, trying to excite us with all the glam.
 Don't get me wrong I love movies, but it was a bit boring and predictable. Who did not guess that the Twilight saga would win all the awards? I like New Moon, but it was predictable! What I did like were the live performances. The blue Katy Perry with Snoop Dogg presenting their new summer hit "California gurls", Tom Cruise's alter ego, Les Grossman with hot Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera's return, ... oh wait those were all!



 The Twilight enthusiasts had a treat with all the closeups on Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. That did not disappoint, right? What did, was once again Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's kiss when they won the "Best Kiss" Award, which did not happen like last year. Let me take a wild guess about what they will do next year. Um... pretend to kiss and actually won't? Almost the whole show was about the Twilight saga. 
 New Moon won 4 awards and Robert Pattinson won the "Global Superstar" award. I'm sorry, but I prefer Taylor's hot abs and not the pale vampire, who cut his hair short, probably because he heard that everyone knows he never showers and found an easier way to look clean, it's a good thing we cannot smell through the TV. Maybe that's why Kristen didn't kiss him and changed her seat later. 
 To continue on this "Twilight MTV Movie Awards", Anna Kendrick received the "Breakthrough Performance" for the movie New Moon Up In The Air. Kendrick actually plays Jessica on the Twilight saga imagine that! 
 We also got to see the trailer for the much anticipated sequel, Eclipse, where Bella struggles to choose between Edward and Jacob. Twilight is a phenomenon, which has taken over planet Earth, even my mom is Twilight-ed and has read all four books and can't wait to watch Eclipse




 Sandra Bullock also stole the show with her speech about "moving on" referring to her recent divorce and the unexpected kiss with Scarlett Johansson. Bullock won the "Generation Award", given by Betty White, who told her "Never wear that dress backwards!", Bradley Cooper and Johansson. She truly deserves it, cause she is an amazing actress. My personal favorite Sandra Bullock films are Miss Congeniality, Practical Magic and of course Premonition with the hot ♥Julian McMahon♥ playing her lovely hubby.




 We also got to see the trailer for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie and Tom Felton won the "Best Villain" Award. Justin Bieber appeared in a video and made the crowd, I mean the little girls go wild. Katy Perry with her blue do, copied by Lady GaGa inspired by the upcoming live action/animated flick she's in The Smurfs sang "California Gurls", along with Doggy Dogg, which I listened to for the first time and I simply loved it. Xtina performed a medley from her new album "Bionic" wearing a glowing LED heart on her crotch, trying to make an impression as her new songs are good, but can hardly reach her old hits. Last but not least, Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez performed a spectacular live dance routine. A lol moment was when Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper presented the "Best Kiss" award and a ballgame-inspired Kiss Cam began making rounds around the room. A number of couples were forced to kiss like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron, but the most passionate kiss was shared by Russel Brand and... No it's not Katy Perry who you think it is, but Jonah Hill, who were literally groping each other!!!

Pretty Little Liars Premiering tomorrow on ABC!

            and
Holly Marie Combs's much anticipated return on TV!


Pretty Little Liars, which premieres tomorrow on ABC Family, is based on the Pretty Little Liars series of young adult novels by Sara Shepard. The series follows the lives of four girls; Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of Alison. Three years later someone who is using the name "A" sends messages to the girls threatening them to expose their secrets.

Lucy Hale plays Aria Montgomery, Ashley Benson as Hanna Marin, Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings and last but not least Emily Fields plays Shay Mitchell.


Holly Marie Combs also plays on Pretty Little Liars Aria's mother, Ella Montgomery. Holly's fans are very enthusiastic for her anticipated return on TV since Charmed, which ended in 2006. 

Here is an interview Holly gave to the New York Post:
On why she chose Pretty Little Liars: What I wanted to do this pilot season was find something that was worth leaving my kids for. This show was seamless - they said I would work two to three days a week on this contemporary series and remain a float in the business. At the same time, I could be home long enough to make my kids realize they weren’t raised by nannies. Which is my biggest goal at the moment.

On her character: Ella is like the very modern, laid-back mom who lets her kids be individuals. She’s the very liberal mom, which I myself am not. So I have a little bit of a struggle.
On the show adhering the book series on which it's based: We're trying to cover everything the books encompass in a way that makes everybody feel satisfied. Which is basically an impossible task. The books had a very big following as it was, so there’s some responsibility to be loyal to what's in them. But that being said, we’re going to go through them very quickly.
I think Ella’s husband doesn't have an affair till the second book and we have that in the first episode. We’re expediting storylines. And from what I heard, they get divorced and Ella begins dating younger men. Which kind of horrifies me.

Tune on ABC Family tomorrow at 8 p.m. to watch the premiere of Pretty Little Liars and come back to comment!


Watch the promo! and A sneak peak with Holly Marie Combs!

Lakers VS Celtics: Last night's TOP 5 Plays


The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics are battling out in the 2010 NBA Finals for the twelfth time!

The 2009 NBA Champions beat the Celtics 102-89 at Staples Center in L.A last night. Top player for the Lakers was Kobe Bryant with 30 points, seven rebounds and six assists, while Paul Pierce had 24 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the Celtics.




"I thought the Lakers were clearly the more physical team today.", Celtics Coach Doc Rivers stated. "I thought they attacked us the entire night. I don't think we handled it very well. They killed us on the glass. I thought they were by far the more physical team."




"That wasn't the prettiest basketball game I've ever watched in my life.",Jackson said. "But it was a good win for us."


Lakers - Celtics
      1-0


Next game of the series is on Sunday, June 6 at 8 pm in Boston.

Kalomoira is back!


After two years since she won the 3rd place representing Greece in the Eurovision song contest, Kalomoira is back with a new hot song "Please Don't Break My Heart" featuring American rapper, Fat Man Scoop.



The song is fresh and there are two versions; a slow one and a dancing one. The video for the song was filmed in Turkey, the background is animated and I think that it is her best work. Both the song and video are amazing. Kalomoira shows her RnB and sexy side and proves that her talent is big and has yet to give more not only to the greek audience, but abroad, too.
"Please Don't Break My Heart" is a big hit and can totally become a hit in all the hot clubs worldwide. When you listen to the song you want to sing and dance, get up and do your thing as Madonna says. It was totally worth waiting for Kalomoira's new music and I can't wait to listen to the whole album, which will be released in mid 2010.
Click below to watch "Please Don't Break My Heart"!

Kalomoira who was the winner of the Greek Fame Story 2, except for being a singer and a greek pop idol with 4 studio albums, she had taken a role on the successful TV series "Lampsi" and also hosted "Big in Japan". As you can see Kalomoira is "Big in Greece", but no matter what, she remains down to earth and she is always open to her fans, which makes her a true shining star!


Kalomoira in Eurovision 2008


As for her personal life, Kalomoira doesn't have to beg her boyfriend not to break her heart, because she is getting married on September 26 her long time boyfriend George Boosalis!

Congratulations Kalomoira and I wish you all the best in life because you desrve it!

Follow Kalomoira on twitter, she replies to everyone and you can get to know her more! She is the sweetest!

Alyssa Milano's proudest accomplishment!




Alyssa Milano appeared on ORA 7, a channel from Kosovo and talked about her work as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, her proudest accomplishment!



She also talked about being an actress and of course about the twitterverse!



Take a look at the video and let the inspiration flow!



Coco Beckham gets a hot pink mani-pedi!

WENN image
A new dog trend starts, as Victoria and David Beckham's tough bulldog is taking a walk in Los Angeles, in hot pink nail polish toes!





As you can see from the pictures Coco is not looking that tough in those cute pink nails, but I think that pink is not really her color. Maybe they should try orange, it goes better with her fur.

"This is nail polish, I did not do it myself", Victoria Beckham told Access Hollywood, "David sent the dog over to get it washed and they painted the toenails!"

I may find it cute, but who knows if the dog enjoys being pampered like this or suffers.
What do you think of Coco's trendy toenails?

This is outrageous: Baby smoking!



I came across this video on http://www.youtube.com/ , which shocked me and made me mad, but also very sad, I mean who wouldn't be?

 There is a little baby in Indonesia who smokes since he was only 18 months. I'm sure you all wonder how a toddler would come in contact with cigarettes. His father was the one who introduced them to the baby and inevitably leads him to severe health problems. Adults should not smoke, because it causes heart problems, cancer and so many more health problems, as we all know. Imagine what it can do to a little baby that has not even fully developed yet. He needs 2 packs a day or else he acts like an addict, because he is an addict. His own father claims that the newborn is healthy. 

Awareness has to be spread so sights like this one can be prevented.

Here is how smoking can harm babies:

The Charmed One's are back!




I was going to write only about the Charmed Comic Books, but then I just couldn't not expand this entry and add my thoughts on this great TV show Charmed.

We all like Charmed, others more and others less. If you haven't heard about Charmed, then you should start watching season 1! Personally, I adore Charmed and it is my favorite TV show, although it has finished since 2006.
I grew up watching the three Charmed One's, Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell dealing with the fact that they were witches and trying to handle and adjust to their new powers and to their new magical world. I watched them kicking demon-ass, falling in and out of love, even die and lose their sister and loved one's. Then reconstituting the Power of three with Paige Matthews, their long lost half sister. I have done some serious loling with Charmed, but also crying at times. I have been disappointed, like when Cole Turner was vanquished and Prue Halliwell was killed, but I did not stop loving Charmed. Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan were the one's who made me love Charmed and never miss an episode. The strong feelings they enhanced their characters with, their talent along with their beauty, was the perfect recipe to make Charmed irresistible to the viewers and have us craving for more.




Now after four years the Charmed One's are back thanks to Zenescope! I am sure we would all prefer a movie or something, but Charmed returns on comic book form, which is still cool. The news were announced on December 19th. The writers of the Charmed Comic Books are Paul Ruditis, who has written a total of three charmed novels, along with Raven Gregory. The first issue is being released on the Comic Con International in San Diego this July. It has been confirmed that the fans are getting their own Book of Shadows along with the Comic Books. There are going to be 12 issues and I hope we get more, if they draw big response.

For more information visit this site http://charmedcomicfan.jimdo.com/ , which is fully and always updated. You can also become a fan on facebook. -->http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=129357943745541&ref=ts



Celine Dion, mother again!


Celine Dion is pregnant with twins! The singer's husband and manager, Rene Angelil, announced the baby news to People on Sunday, May 30th. The 42-year-old mom-to-be is 14 weeks along.

"We're ecstatic," he told the magazine. "Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing."

Celine welcomed son Rene-Charles in 2001, and has made no secret of her quest to expand her family since. "I'm going through some in vitro treatments - so that was my choice," Celine said at the time. "I'm trying to [grow] my family, be with my son and maybe be a mom for a second child, hopefully. That would be my biggest dream right now."

Last December, the Canadian singer opened up to Access about her struggles to conceive.

"We were [pregnant]," she said of August 2009 reports that she was expecting once again. "About 4, 5 days after, they found out that it was not staying."


May the little one's be fully healthy!



Alyssa Milano in Kosovo with UNICEF



Alyssa Milano is not only an actress, designer for her Touch by AM sports clothing line and a die-hard sports fan, but also a humanitarian. Alyssa is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and she traveled to Kosovo to celebrate Children's Day and work in the field as she tweeted on May 28th. (Original tweet ---> "I'm on my way to Kosovo w/ UNICEF to celebrate Children's Day & work in the field. I'm very excited. Here's an overview➙http://is.gd/ct45S")



"Hello, Kosovo. I'm happy to be here."was her tweet when she arrived and here are some photos she tweeted:






Alyssa is not like other celebrities, who care only about fame and money, but she always cares about people and she has proved that several times. Her talent combined with the love and devotion to her fans makes Alyssa a true role model for everyone and she shows the good side of being famous. Her voice on twitter reaches so many people, that on December 19 2009 in honor of her 37th birthday managed to gather $75,000 from donations for Charity Water.

In addition, Alyssa was appointed Founding Ambassador for the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Deseases, to which she donated $250,000. In the fall of 2004, she participated in UNICEF's "Trick or Treat" campaign as an official spokesperson. She raised approximately $50,000 for South Afrikan women and children with AIDSby selling own and school's photo work. In support of PETA, she appeared in an advertisement for them, advocating vegetarianism, in a dress made entirely of vegetables.




Alyssa said on her trip to Kosovo: “Children have a lot to say and they have a right to be heard; it is our responsibility to listen and give them opportunities to interact with their peers from all communities”
