While most of the country seems to be covered in snow, it’s easy to forget that spring is right around the corner. There are tons of great events coming up like March Madness, baseball’s Opening Day, The Masters and of course the Kentucky Derby, all events where we often see celebrities coming out to enjoy themselves.
The Kentucky Derby is one of the more popular events for celebrities, as women get decked out in beautiful dresses and those amazing hats. It’s a perfect atmosphere for celebrity red carpets, and in recent years we’ve seen the likes of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Marisa Miller. So at the Derby you can drink up your Mint Juleps, watch some beautiful women in their sexy hats, and of course bet on Kentucky Derby winners.
The video above from Maxim shows just how fun the parties can be for the Derby. Maxim of course has one of the better parties, with tons of attractive models and plenty of celebrities strutting on the red carpet. In this video you’ll see the beautiful Erin Andrews among other celebrities. The key is making an entire weekend out of the event. It’s not just about the races, the horses and placing bets, though that’s a huge part of why everyone is there. It’s really a Southern celebration, and women plan their entire weekend around the different dresses and hats they’ve picked out. Every night there are tons of parties all around town, and you don’t have to be at a celebrity party to enjoy yourself.
On race day, you can pay more to have a more elegant time in the stands, or you can get crazy in the infield with cases of beer and a bunch of wild party animals.
Either way, it’s a great time, and planning a trip there can help you get through your winter blues.

Top jewelry brands supplied some beautiful jewelry to help dress up some lovely celebrities on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globes. Melissa Rauch, who plays the hilarious Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz on “The Big Bang Theory,” wore Simon G. Jewelry.

A bunch of celebrities are featured in “Scary Movie 5,” including the following: Ashley Tisdale, Erica Ash, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, Heather Locklear, Jasmine Guy, Angie Stone, Kate Walsh, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, Sherée Whitfield, Mike Tyson, Audrina Patridge, Kendra Wilkinson and Katt Williams.
It’s been a pretty incredible year on AMC, with shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” returning for excellent seasons. Now another great AMC program will be back soon with Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” which has joined those shows as cultural icons. The devotion of each of these shows is intense, as evidenced by the ratings, the awards and the activity on Twitter. Fans love these shows as they scoop up memorabilia, visit a poster frame depot to hang their posters and then play video games in the case of “The Walking Dead.”
To build buzz for the new season, AMC recently “zombified” some famous celebrities in some gory and cool photos. If you look at the horror sites online, all you see is stuff from “The Walking Dead” so it’s safe to say there will be plenty of attention.
AMC is just one of many cable channels that have been changing television with these quality dramas. The formula is much different from network TV, as here true artists are given the creative freedom to express themselves without focus groups and studio executives dumbing everything down. HBO led the charge years ago, and fortunately many others are following this formula. Now, the quality of stories is better on cable TV as compared to most major movie releases. Enjoy!
Blackjack is a popular card game in which a person is dealt two cards face down. The object is to reach the closest to 21 based on the value of the cards. You’re going against the dealer, who is always dealt two cards and is trying to reach 21. If you go over 21 or if the dealer is closer to 21, the player automatically loses.
This, along with poker, is among the most popular games at a no deposit required casino. Many celebrities play the game recreationally and to raise money for charity causes in celebrity tournaments. It kills two birds with one stone by allowing them to play the game they love in their spare time and in some cases, win money for their charity. Others win money for themselves when playing the game in a no deposit required casino.
The Game Show Network (GSN) ran a show called Celebrity Blackjack, that allowed various celebrities to play the game and enter a tournament to win money for charitable causes. Various celebrities, including Ben Stein, Shannon Elizabeth, Billy Baldwin and Caroline Rhea, Kelli Williams and Lance Bass, participated. These celebrities enjoy the game and are able to give back to their causes at the same time.
They enter the tournament with a set amount of money and play their way into increased earnings. They’re competing at the table with various other celebrities who have the same goal while they enjoy the game.
Other Celebrities Who Love Blackjack
Both through tournaments and common, everyday playing,, celebrities everywhere have shown themself to love Blackjack. Former NFL players Jerome Bettis and Derrick Brooks have been involved with numerous charity Blackjack tournaments. Michael Jordan, recognized by many as a business mogul and the greatest basketball player of all time, has played many hands of Blackjack at places such as the no deposit required casino.
Many celebrities love going to Las Vegas for a weekend of partying and fun in the city and at casinos and casino hotels. Snoop Dogg, Katy Perry and Melissa Joan Hart are known for their love of Blackjack. The game is fun and those who play it, including celebrities, do so enthusiastically. Many people enjoy the card game for different reasons, but you’ll find no shortage of celebrities who enjoy playing Blackjack both in their personal lives and for charity causes.

Who doesn’t like to keep up with celebrities? Well, lots of people, but this article isn’t for them. There are tens of thousands of mobile apps available across any number of devices, and given the enormous popularity of celebrity news and gossip sources like Entertainment Tonight and TMZ, it is no surprise that there are apps that cater to the legions of dedicated super-fans. Here are just a few of them.
Personal celebrity apps
A lot of celebrities have their own personal mobile apps, which is great, because without them, we would have to rely on TMZ to tell us what Jay-Z is doing on any given day. Chuck Norris, Britney Spears, Samuel L. Jackson, Lady Gaga, will.i.am and many more have personal apps.
With these apps, celebrities keep followers updated and informed on their lives, their interests, their careers and their latest projects. These apps bring fans into the lives of celebrities on a level not matched by gossip sources. Because what better source is there for info on will.i.am’s latest musical project than will.i.am himself? Oh, and speaking of celebrity gossip sources…
Celebrity gossip and news apps
All the biggest celebrity gossip sources have their own apps to keep followers informed. Fans can download the People Celebrity News Tracker or apps from TMZ, Entertainment Tonight, MTV News, E! Online and more to make sure that they never miss a celebrity bad hair day, marriage, break up, arrest or fashion mistake.
Celebrity preferred apps
When celebrities are photographed doing something mundane, gossip magazines sometimes say that they are “just like us.” Well, in terms of what mobile apps they like, this is certainly true. They enjoy many of the same apps that a lot of other people do.
Rachel Ray says her favorite app is the Boggle-like game Quordy, rapper T-Pain plays the game Amateur Surgeon and Neil Patrick Harris likes the storyboard app called Hitchcock. Alec Baldwin’s affinity for Words with Friends got him into trouble when he refused to stop playing the game on an airplane when asked to turn off his electronic device. Lisa Lampanelli uses the Weight Watchers app to keep track of what she eats, and Marlon Wayons likes the iAnnotate application for reading and editing scripts.
Celebrity-relevant apps are great. Unfortunately, everyone’s economic situation is not so great and many can’t afford the latest and best mobile devices. Have no fear, super-fans. The economical choice, prepaid cell phones and prepaid cell phone plans will make sure that the wisdom of David Hasselhoff or news about the latest power-couple break-up is always at your fingertips.
People follow celebrities for a variety of reasons. Some are simply curious; others share their interests. Sometimes celebrity lives seem larger-than-life and that can be amusing. Even using the same apps that celebrities use makes some fans feel closer to the person whose work they enjoy. Whatever the reason, people love to keep track of their favorite celebs, and mobile apps are one of the best ways to do so.
Who’s your favorite 80s star? I have a ton of them, but Heather Thomas definitely ranks up there. She starred as Jody Banks on “The Fall Guy” from 1981 through 1986 and was a sensation. You can see from the poster to the right why she was so popular. I had this poster in my room in college as did many other guys back in the day. She was a stunning blonde with an incredible smile. She had a girl next door type personality but looked like a blonde bombshell.
Another popular pinup icon from the 80s has to be Madonna, and with these two you see polar opposite styles. Both are sexy as hell, but Madonna had much more of a bad girl persona and she pushed 80s fashion with some of her wild styles. When you think of celebrity sexy outfits Madonna always comes to mind regardless of what era you’re thinking about.
You can keep both of these celebrities in mind if you’re thinking about looks for an 80s theme party. Now if you’re looking for eighties dress ideas you might want to look back on old episodes of “Dallas” instead of these two. With Madonna the sexy lingerie and bohemian look stands out, while Heather Thomas is more casual.
Now if you’re party has an older 70s theme instead, you can look to shows like “Charlie’s Angels” for inspiration for a fancy 70′s dress.
Either way, these theme parties are fun. Women love to dress up, and guys love it when women get decked out in sexy outfits. Everybody wins!
Well, maybe you won’t look exactly like Brad Pitt, but you can get ripped abs and an amazing body if you put your mind to it.
MMA World Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre is now a legend in the MMA community, and now he’s sharing his training secrets with this popular fitness DVD.
MMA is more than just a sport or a form of entertainment. It has spawned a new lifestyle approach, and central to that is the sculpted look you see with the best MMA fighters. Women love that look and guys are inspired by it. Your seeing more celebrities trying to get fit as they need to for their careers.
It’s only attainable, however, if you’re willing and able to undergo an intense workout program. You have to be committed, and you have to be the type of person that sets the bar high. You might not be able to fight like St-Pierre, but you can achieve that same look through persistent hard work.
Celebrities who look great have to work at it as well. Don’t thing they don’t spend the needed time in the gym. They have personal trainers, but this program is even better!
