Nicki Minaj as Lydia in “The Other Womam”

Music industry’s most versatile talent, Nicki Minaj stars alongside Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the upcoming estrogen-filled comedy “The Other Woman.”

Minaj’s role channels a very vocal and fashion-forward assistant named Lydia who works for the stunning and tough New York lawyer Carly, played by Diaz whose boyfriend Mark (Waldau) turns out to be a married guy cheating on his wife, Kate (Mann). The two women don’t appear to have much in common, other than the philandering womanizer who has been tricking both of them. They become great pals, much to Lydia’s initial dismay, and decide to teach the lying Mark a few lessons to prove that cheating will not work. Everything becomes more complicated when Carly and Kate find out that the charming cheat has been engaging in yet another affair, with the beautiful Amber (Kate Upton) who is half his age. The three of them join forces and conjure up ingenious strategies to give Mark what he deserves, at the same time the bond between them grows stronger.

Lydia’s looks include high fashion, sexy, and body-conscious pieces that would fill the closet of a girl with a sugar daddy footing the bill. Some of her designer looks are by Gucci, Roland Mouret, Versace, Herve Leger, Proenza Schoeler, and McQueen – all paired with the most extreme, expensive designer shoes that only a diva could stand wearing to the office. Nicki Minaj, a noted fashion icon in her own right, was also thrilled to learn Field would be joining the team: “When I heard that Patricia Field was a part of this movie, I was very excited because I knew everybody would be eating their hearts out when they saw all the clothes we wear in this movie, and I knew it was going to be fresh and fun.”
Nicki Minaj for the Other Woman

Nicki Minaj’s unexpected casting coup added something to the movie that producer Julie Yorn hadn’t counted on: “We all have a sense of Nicki’s persona and larger than life personality, but she came in with the most humble approach and attitude. She was dying to sit at the feet of these other women and learn.” We always wanted for the character of Lydia to be sassy,” Yorn continues. “But what was disarming about Nicki was her likability, which actually changed the scripted character. Lydia became a really important ally to Carly. That’s the chemistry part of it that you don’t expect. Cameron and Nicki bonded from day one and so you just get a whole different dynamic than anticipated.”

Minaj was a welcome surprise for director Nick Cassavetes, as well: “Lydia says things to Carly that are couched as truths, and that are really preposterous, but they have this unexpected truth that suggests sometimes the correct thing is to do the incorrect thing.”

According to Minaj, Lydia is very opinionated. “She has her own outlook on life and relationships, and you can’t change her mind about anything. She develops a real friendship with Carly. And Lydia really wants Carly to settle down and meet the right man. So she gets involved a little bit in bringing Mark down and getting Carly to fall in love with someone who’s a good person.”

Lydia is an important person in Carly’s life, because, says Minaj, “Lydia’s the friend that is going to give you tough love. I happen to be that kind of friend. I don’t like when my best friends are sad about a guy. I think all women need a friend who’s going to let us cry and mope, but we also need the friend that’s going to say, ‘Okay, pick it back up. Let’s go. You know, we’re not going to be walking around the office moping.’”

Patricia Field helms the movie’s costume design department and styling Nicki Minaj was another highlight for the designers. “It was really fun to get the chance to dress Nicki for this role,” says Field’s longtime collaborator and protégé Paolo Nieddu. “She’s the secretary, and the sexy secretary is an image everybody can imagine, so we went with almost a cartoon sexy secretary, with exaggerated colors and prints and lots of different accessories. Every day is a new Lydia. So you never know what you’re going to get with her.”

Check out this funny and endearing story on (female) friendship when “The Other Woman” opens May 7 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

The Perfect Man & Woman Using Celebrity Body Parts

perfect-male-body (1)

I can’t help but share this here. Have you pictured the perfect man or woman using celebrity body parts?  Well, a survey conducted in Great Britain via Bluebella gave us the image of the ideal man and woman (according to 1000 Brits).

British men like Megan Fox’s  face, Kim Kardashian’s ‘fuller’ boobs, Michelle Keegan’s slim tummy, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s never-ending pins, Scarlett Johansson’s blonde hair and Kelly Brook’s ‘fuller’ hips.

British women picture a perfect woman as having Cara Delevingne’s face and its ‘supermodel features,’ Jennifer Aniston’s ‘pert and perky’ boobs, Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘toned’ stomach, Kate Middleton’s ‘long, luscious’ brown hair, Emma Watson’s ‘boyish’ hips and Elle MacPherson’s long legs.


Meanwhile Brit women picture the perfect man as Having Harry Styles’ famous hair, Jamie Dornan’s ‘beautiful, open face’ face, David Gandy’s ripped torso, Brad Pitt’s biceps and David Beckham’s strong legs.

While British men think the perfect man has Brad Pitt’s hair (it’s TBD whether they’re referring to his current mini-hawk), the ‘flawed but chiseled bone structure’ of David Beckham’s face, Ryan Gosling’s ‘rock-solid’ torso, Hugh Jackman’s ‘rippling [bicep] muscles’ and Frank Lampard’s muscular legs.

Well, that’s the Brits talking I wonder what the other nationalities think. Personally I like the choices made by Brit men. How about you which is your perfect man or woman?

Stay gorgeous everyone!

Lessons Learned from How I Met Your Mother Finale


The How I Met Your Mother finale upset so many fans but not me. I really think it was an apt ending that is too close to reality. It was not a Disney Fairy Tale ending we all as kids grew up with that ends “The Prince and Princess got married and they all live happily ever after.”

It was one of those endings that made me sigh and say “ah, that is life.” That is real life. You don’t always get what you expect. Life is not that predictable like the movies.

When I started watching the show, I always got the feeling that Robin Sherbatsky was the mother but the speculations died when they finally showed that umbrella scene. But the weird thing to me was Ted Mosby always talk about Robin to his kids and so that screwed my head and wondered where is the mother and why Ted is telling this story to his kids.


True enough to my gut feel, the Mother is dead. How could we all not see that
The only reason a father talks about their mother to their kids is when they are missing her or if she is dead. Hell, I didn’t even remember the Mother’s name.

Why are fans so disappointed that How I Met Your Mother ended that way. The title is very apt, MET past tense. It was just about meeting not staying.

Those who still didn’t get what happened in the ending. Here’s a rundown.
The Mother is dead.
Ted all along was telling a story about how he met the Mother but how he loved Robin all his life.
Ted and Robin got back together.
Barney divorced Robin and got the 31st women he screwed preggers and now he got a daughter that probably changed him to a reformed womanizer.
Marshall and Lily stays happily married with lotsa kids.


Lesson learned in the series
1. Things in our life doesn’t happen the way we want it to be sometimes. There are detours and maybe shortcuts we take that stirs us to a different direction.
2. There are people we met in our lives that will change us forever. There are people we will love until the end no matter how they hurt us
3. True friends will always stay and remain friends no matter what.
4. Love is a choice. We either act against it or for it. We may love the person we think is best for us or love the person meant for us from a distance because that is what we thought was the best thing to do.
5. Never expect. Because expectations leads to disappointments. Live. Love. Laugh.
6. Happy endings differ from person to person and situation. My happy ending may not be your happy ending.

How about you what did you think of the How I Met Your Mother finale?

Stay gorgeous everyone!

My Captain America The Winter Soldier Movie Review


Very important points to remember when you watch Captain America The Winter Soldier is that stay until the end credits roll, not just the one showing lead characters but the end credits. There are two easter eggs to see that you will regret not seeing! Teasers for the upcoming Avenger and yes Captain America! Woot!

Anyway, as always you won’t read spoilers from me. Just general statements.

So what I think about Captain America The Winter Soldier? I think it’s great. I even think it was better than the first one.


  • Why? Because the story plot was way much better and futuristic, kinda relatable to this generation especially with reference to social media and the dangers of relying on technology too much.
  • I also love that there are more interesting characters and a lot more character stories were shown in this movie than the first which was solely focus on the Cap.
  • I also enjoy the amazing stunts and fight scenes.
  • The movie started boring and slow but it compensated all the way through. I love it.
  • While the others think the new suit was better, I still like the vintage one.

Captain America The Winter Soldier is showing in Philippine Cinemas now.

Stay gorgeous everyone!

Thank you Solaire Resorts for the invite the the special screening! Happy 1 million followers and anniversary!

OMG! UMD, Manoeuvres, Sexbomb Reunite for Dance Concert


OMG! As soon as I read the groups that will come together for a reunion concert I got so giddy! I got flashback from my highschool life when these groups were at their peek of their career.

I was in my junior highschool year when Universal Universal Motion Dancers (UMD), Manoeuvres, and Sexbomb Dancers were the ones teenagers and kids my age emulate when it comes to dancing!

The Original Sex Bomb Dancers for Eat Bulaga segment Laban o Bawi, the Universal Motion Dancers popularized dance moves like the Butterfly and the Maneuvers was the backup dancer of Garry Valenciano

I am super excited for this Massive Dance Concert reunion! I do hope they are able to get all the members together! It has been awhile!

The generation of today may not be able to relate as these phenomenal group UMD, Maneuvers and Sex Bomb were the iconic dance group of the country. Geez I can still remember all the songs they dance to and yes I remember some of the dance step.

If you want to get acquainted with them,
watch these three iconic dance groups perform at the Trinoma Activity Center on Monday March 31, 2014, to raise awareness for Neuropathy or nerve damage – a condition with symptoms like pamamanhid, tusok-tusok, and pangangawit.


This event is organized by Neurobion, a Vitamin B-Complex with Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 that helps maintain healthy nerves, promote efficient nerve function, and reduce pain in the arms and hands caused by Neuropathy.

Besides the dance concert, there will also be free nerve clinics, games, and freebies to be given away throughout the day-long event.

Say Hello to SM Lifestyle Entertainment


Did you know that the term “malling” was invented by Filipinos because of the love of frequenting malls?

Whether to shop, watch movies, hang’out with friends to eat, play games and do all sorts of leisure activities, the mall is the place to be. Malling is so popular with Pinoys also because of the free airconditioning! Haha!

Anyway, whatever the reason is, there’s no mall who understands this better but SM who just recently launched the SM Lifestyle Entertainment Incorporated (SMLEI).

The SM Lifestyle Enterntainment is the educational, sports, and recreational arm of SM Prime Holdings Inc. that offers the best in movies, events, leisure and technology.

Play with Ice this Summer!


Ice this Summer

The Philippines is a tropical country that is located near the equator. Because of the country’s location, it experiences an average of 27.7°C throughout the year and go as high as 34°C during the summer, when most Filipino kids are on vacation.

Usually, summer vacations mean beach trips, road trips, and out-of-the-country tours but because of the humidity, some families tend to stay inside their homes to avoid the heat. However, there’s only so much one can do at the mall and kids can only be entertained by the same things for a certain period of time. Luckily, SM has the Olympic sized SM Skating Rink to cool you down on a hot sunny day.


Going to the SM Skating Rink is perfect for people who want to enjoy their summer breaks but do not want to endure the heat outdoors. Providing Filipinos with an alternative venue for recreation and fun was the intention in building the rink. Other than the cold temperature, the SM Ice Skating Rink offers various activities like the following:

· Open skating. Let your inner ice princess out and glide around the Olympic sized skating rink. If you are feeling conscious and feel like you will fall, you can hire one of the SM coaches to teach you the basics of ice skating. Who knows? You might be the next Michael Martinez.

· Hockey games. If ice skating isn’t your thing, why not gather your friends and experience the world of ice hockey. You could also make your own hockey-lympics and compete with your friends or family. For beginners, SM offers hockey lessons.

· Sled ride. Who said sled rides can only be experienced on icy mountains? Experience the rush that comes with sled rides in the SM Skating Rink. One special feature, the SM Skating Rinks also have snow machines, taking the snowy experience to the next level. Feel the adrenaline as you slide around the largest ice skating rink in the country.

· Relax outside the rink. Aside from the exciting activities that can be done inside the rink, SM Skating Rink also offers other activities like the Xtreme Gaming, which is PS3 rentals with the latest games in town, a Battle Seat Simulator, and a massage corner. These activities are perfect to the kids who are not fond of the ice and for the parents who want to relax while their children are enjoying the rink activities.

For a country that doesn’t have snow, you can still cool down during the summer and play with ice at the SM Ice Skating Rink. For more information, you may visit
