Grammy Winner Coolio & WWE legend Virgil join Cherie DeVille for the 2020 run for president

Los Angeles, CA, Sep-7-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Sporting a doctorate on her resume, a well-spoken, opinionated candidate has emerged in the 2020 run for president. With Donald Trump having opened the door to public figures attaining the highest office, DeVille has announced her intention to run for President. She’s enlisted Coolio to serve as Vice-President due to his rise from poverty to a gangster’s paradise, and having toured every state in this land, and dozens of countries throughout the world speaking to people along the way – together they know how to fix America.

DeVille announces her presidential bid during a 7+ minute press conference which introduces her team as she recounts her views for change. Coolio is introduced as the presidential hopeful’s running mate and is a strong proponent for universal healthcare, hoping to roll out CoolioCare to the masses.
Chere DeVille speaks eloquently on the broken promises of the current administration and goes so far as to touch on the travel ban, healthcare as well as the disastrous situation that Trump has left the world in with the United State’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord.

International models @Khloe and @MissKennedyS bring the millennial vote along with substantial experience from travelling the world and speaking to the people. Summers, is also a third year med student who has very real concepts on how to improve the healthcare system and will work closely with the Vice President on CoolioCare. Canadian born Khloe Terae hopes to cozy up with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in her role as head of Foreign Relations.

Former WWE legend Virgil is the man behind the woman. The former bodyguard for the Million Dollar Man will reprise his role on a much grander scale. Virgil has been pegged with being the personal bodyguard for the Presidential hopeful, along with being head of security. Having broken breadsticks at Olive Garden with Donald Trump, Virgil has keen insight in the current administration, and can help transition when Cherie DeVille captures the White House.

Taj Pabla – Giving Back to the Community This Holiday Season

You may know Taj Pabla as a famous model and actor, but there is much more to the story than that. Taj Pabla feels extremely blessed to have enjoyed so much success, and he is as committed to giving back to the community as he is to his craft.

That means that gorgeous model and actor Taj Pabla will be working hard this holiday season not only on the screen and on the runway but in the homeless shelters as well. This year Taj Pabla will be celebrating the true spirit of Thanksgiving by helping to serve dinner to the homeless. He will also be celebrating the spirit of the giving by donating toys to children in need. Taj knows that there is nothing as special as a child’s face on Christmas morning, and he is proud to play a small part in putting those smiles on the faces of children who might otherwise not get a gift this holiday season.

Taj Pabla puts it all in perspective by recounting how blessed he has been. As Taj says “I look around and I have everything. So why should I be selfish? So this year instead of getting I am going to give to the needy. I am serving Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless and working on putting smiles on kids’ faces at Christmas by donating toys.”

Taj Pabla updated his Facebook status on November 22 to share his holiday plans with his fans and urge others to follow in his footsteps. As Taj said in his status update – “This holiday season I’m going to help the people in need. So this Thanksgiving I’ll be serving the homeless. I am thankful for everything I have. I know sometime I could be selfish, but this year I’m going to do things from the heart and help the less fortunate.”

So just what will Taj Pabla be getting in return for his charitable endeavors this holiday season? Taj will be getting something much more valuable than mere baubles and presents he will be getting the joy that only comes from helping others. He will enjoy the warmth and satisfaction of knowing he has helped put smiles on the faces of children and a full meal in the stomachs of those who might otherwise go hungry this holiday season.

In fact, Taj Pabla is getting so much satisfaction from helping others that he is not about to stop. He has much more to give – and he can’t wait to give back to the community and help those who have blessed his life. Taj is looking forward to launching a new non-profit devoted to helping kids in poor countries get the education they need to enjoy a better and more fulfilling life.

Bikini-USA confirms that Bobby Petrino’s Latest Text Message Partner, Alison Melder, is not Ms. Bikini-USA 2008

Bobby Petrino has been linked to a second young lady for a text messaging-affair. Information on Alison Melder’s modeling site claims for her to have won the title of Ms. Bikini-USA 2008. Bikini-USA would like to clear up this statement as it is not correct and respond to Claims of Involvement with Alison Melder.

When a scandalous news story breaks so many parties are involved and therefore, become breaking news headlines for many different reasons. Recently, Bobby Petrino has been linked with a motorcycle crash and having an affair with a 26 year old assistant who was with him on the day of the motorcycle accident. Petrino and this assistant shared supposedly thousands of text messages during their affair. Now, the latest hot topic with the former Arkansas Razorback’s Head Coach Petrino is that he was also involved with a 26-year old woman, Alison Melder, during this same time period, and they also shared over 200 racy text messages during a two month period. Ms. Alison Melder may or may not have been involved with Mr. Bobby Petrino, I have no way of confirming their exchange of over 200+ text messages, nor is it any of my personal business just how many mistresses the now Former Arkansas Football Head Coach had in his life.

With the breaking story of Alison Melder and Bobby Petrino’s alleged affair, so many have wondered who is Alison Melder and what exactly is her involvement with former Arkansas Razorback’s Football Coach Bobby Petrino? Also, surfacing in news headlines, USA Todayand Lost Lettermen, are claims made by Ms. Melder that she was the Miss Bikini-USA 2008 Bikini Model competition winner. Ms. Melder, on her modeling site, claims that she won the competition and title as Ms. Bikini-USA 08.

It is true that there is an organization called Bikini-USA with a website full of pages of gorgeous bikini models. Bikini-USA does hold various model competitions throughout the year and proudly hosts its annual competition in a unique, exotic location with various top photographers to shoot and help determine the Ms. Bikini-USA for that year. I will say this, Ms. Alison Melder, although extremely attractive, is one bikini model, I will personally never work with. She has on her personal profile as of today on (www.talentfinder.tv/alison) under Awards / Credits: listing herself as Miss Bikini-USA 08 and for that reason alone, I would never work with a model like her. I personally know that this is not true, as I have been actively involved with Bikini-USA. What I can confirm is that Bikini Model Ms. Alison Melder was in no way the winner of the Miss Bikini-USA 2008 bikini model competition. This distinct title was awarded to the ever-so-lovely Ms. Gia Allemand. You have to remember this beautiful and ever so graceful lady. She was one of Jake Pavelka’s favorites on the ABC Show “The Bachelor – On the Wings of Love” season. I had the distinct privilege of doing a phone interview with Ms. Gia Allemand and I have to say that she is just as lovely in her demeanor on a phone interview as she is on TV.  I could only hope to work with such a lovely bikini model down the road. I also had the privilege of putting together her photos and cover story for Bikini-USA (http://www.bikini-usa.com/Gia-Allemand-Model-2008.asp) while she was on “The Bachelor”.

I also asked the Owner’s of Bikini-USA, Jay and Terri Dingle, if they have ever had any knowledge of Alison Melder in any shape form or fashion. I’ve known both Jay and Terri for years, and they both told me that they just can’t ever remember this one particular model.  We are talking about two people who make it their business to personally get to know each and every bikini model who participates in any of their bikini model competitions. Bikini USA owners have been unable to identify Ms. Melder’s involvement with their organization and have been unable to contact Ms. Melder to verify her claims.

The owners of Bikini USA are perplexed by their recent influx of media contacts for interview requests and additional information regarding Alison Melder, the” self-proclaimed winner” of Miss Bikini USA 2008.

“While it is possible Ms. Melder may have won a local photo submission contest, we have no record of her winning or entering an official Bikini USA contest. We do however consider all winners of any contest with which we are associated, part of the Bikini USA family and wish Alison the best in her current and future endeavors” stated Terri Dingle, part owner of the Bikini USA franchise.

Further, no Bikini-USA Staff photographer has any knowledge of Ms. Melder, and every Miss Bikini-USA Competition has a minimum of three Bikini-USA Staff Photographers on hand to work with, photograph and provide advice to all bikini models in their competitions.  You see, not only do I participate in the web site portion of Bikini-USA, but I have also had the privilege to do model photography with them and proud to say that I have more than a few shots on record with them!

The owners of Bikini USA have also made attempts to contact Ms. Melder regarding her involvement with their organization and have been unsuccessful to date. The Bikini USA organization manages thousands of aspiring models and promotes them at events and various sponsored contests.

So I am confused and a tad dismayed that any reputable news agency is reporting that Ms. Alison Melder was the Former Miss Bikini-USA 2008 winner when all they had to do to fact check this was to either hit the Bikini-USA site ; email Jay and Terri Dingle; or that matter, give them a call.

Even furthermore, I can’t confirm or deny that Ms. Alison Melder’s claim to be Miss Motorcycle Mania 2008 is true or false. I can tell you this, after ten minutes of using a little known search engine called Google; I couldn’t locate one official Motorcycle Mania website. I did however find a number of different websites that have added city names to that verbiage but not one for the supposed Miss Motorcycle Mania claim for 2008. My Dad always told me that where there’s smoke there’s fire. It would appear to me that knowing for a fact that Miss Alison Melder’s claim to be Miss Bikini-USA 2008 as false; then I would say it’s probably safe to presume that her claim for her other Awards is the same.

As for her text messages to a married man who was riding around on a motorcycle with a young lady that wasn’t his wife, hey who am I to judge? As for USA Today and other news agencies that have the audacity to call themselves journalists, how about you guys spend at least the same 15 minutes I spent looking online to do at the very least a little fact checking first?  I’m not even a seasoned reporter and even I know that much!

Female iPhone App Developer’s Business Decimated By Apple’s Controversial ‘Sexy App’ Purge

“Hot ‘N Funny” has been making iPhone apps for eight months, finally making money when Apple shut her down. Playboy, Sports Illustrated, and Maxim however, get to keep their similar apps up.

Jacqui Holland and her partner Jeff Wolverton have had seven apps removed from the app store, including the popular “Pocket Ex-Girlfriend” and “Pocket Hotty”, all featuring Jacqui as various scantily clad comic characters. Apple removed them all, most in the “sexy apps” purge of the last few days (you can see them on www.ForbiddenIphoneApps.com) Apple claims the burlesque comedy apps of HotNFunny.com were removed due to “overtly sexual content”, which it previously approved, but now says has to go. All of the Hot ‘N Funny teams apps had no nudity, no pornography and were rated 17+. Apple does continue to allow bikini pictures from big magazine companies such as Playboy, however, and sexual content such as Cosmopolitan’s “Sexual Position of the Day” app.

Jacqui & Jeff are both former standup comics. Jacqui is also an working actress who appeared in “My Best Friend’s Girl” in a scene with Kate Hudson, and Jeff is the screenwriter who wrote the Academy Award-winning short film “The ChubbChubbs!” as well as a creating visual effects in two of the Spider-Man movies. The two met in the standup comedy circuit and formed an alliance last summer to make comedic short films, then quickly switched to iPhone apps. After months of altering their apps to adjust to Apple’s ever-changing standard, their business was beginning to take off. Apple first allowed pasties, then said no, but bikinis & thongs were okay. Several Hot ‘N Funny apps would be up, then down, then back up, sometimes with the same content. Hot ‘N Funny is now one of the many that have been decimated by Apple’s purge of erotic iphone apps.

As both an app developer and the central model of the apps, Jacqui has a unique point of view on the apps Apple says we “degrading and objectionable” to women, and believes Apple decision to let similar apps from the magazine companies remain (now devoid of competition) has more to do with the impending iPad release and it’s platform for magazine distribution. She points out that she and Jeff altered the “front screenshots” of their apps many times at Apple’s behest, but Playboy and Sports Illustrated’s remaining apps show exactly the amount of skin in the images Jacqui was forced to take down.

For additional information on the news that is the subject of this release (or for a sample, copy or demo), contact Jacqui Holland or Jeff Wolverton or visit www.ForbiddenIphoneApps.com.

Icon Models in Toronto L’Oreal Fashion Week

Icon Models in Toronto L’Oreal Fashion Week. Native Vancouver designer Carlie Wong impressed the Toronto public with her astonishing collection in the L’Oreal Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2009. The famous Project Runway Canada contestant is described as “a spirited intelligence, a jazzy confidence, and elegant mix of time-slowing classical beauty with a touch of smoky glam” by CTV. Wong’s collection had a distinct vibe that blends in girly glamour with street-chic.

Carlie Wong’s fittings took place at Icon Models in Toronto. In her quest to perfection, Carlie Wong took charge to ensure all her garments blended seamlessly and the models’ walks flawless. On the day of the show, “Carlie’s models charged down the runway with sure-footed independence, sliding hand along hips with relaxed shoulders and eyes that surveyed the lines of watchers around. There were no blank stares, not robotic statuettes, the models were alive,” -CTV

“My Spring / Summer 2009 collection is all about bringing quality construction, attention to detail and luxurious piece to the fashion world,” says designer Carlie Wong. With sharp edges and structured tailoring mix with her palette of colour including black, white grey and silvery blue contributed to achieving the”Glamorous Gangster” look she was striving for. The first look was her “must have” for Spring 09- the jumpsuit; which was a combination of a sharp wide-legged bottom, topped with a men’s waistcoat. The garment was followed by gowns and dresses that created flattering silhouettes through draping silks and plunging yet narrow necklines. The finale dress which is Carlie Wong’s favorite item in her collection is “a dramatic, heavily detailed and beaded black silk gown. It would be a custom dress that would probably sell for $10,000”-The Star. Integrating these elements together helped illustrate Carlie Wong’s design vision- feminine, sophistication and luxurious. The collection also alternated between masculine and feminine tailoring, featuring high-waited trousers paired with a ruffle black halter and tightly draped Grecian style jersey gown.

Wong’s collection was breath taking; she used the most engaging way to present the curves of modern women. Her creativity combined with her sponsor LG mobile stunned the audiences further. Technology inspired chained PDAs, mobiles as pendants and charmed bracelets were a substitute of jewelery and clutches. This was defiantly an exceptional show during this year’s fashion week.

For more information, please review the March 09 issue of Flare Magazine.
