Do you remember watching Snow Dogs (2002)? You know, that Disney movie with Cuba Gooding Jr. Well Joanna Bacalso was that chick starring beside him as the love interest. She was Barb in that movie. I couldn’t find anything about her. Nothing under portfolio, profile or agents - even nude searches just turned up with porn sites. IMDB doesn’t have anything from her except her filmography, that she was born in Philippines, so I guess shes 100% filipina? And she’s married to Matthew Garel since 1998 with one child. I’m surprised that there isn’t anything more on this sexy and elegant Filipina actress. Her latest movie is Mysterious (as Sherry Pace). She also starred in 2004 movie My Baby’s Daddy. Bascalso’s other movie roles include Bedazzled, Gangland, Dude, Where’s my car? and Woo. However I did find something. I think she is into photography now and has a business called, “Joanna Garel Foto”. This website notes this in their profile about the business:
“Joanna started her career as a model/actress. She discovered she loved
being behind the camera 7 years ago and started shooting family and friends.
Referrals came in abundance and since then her clients have included:
AT&T, SURFER Magazine, FORD MODEL MANAGEMENT and numerous clients for headshots, weddings, fashion as well as Industrial Photography with Mike Bubalo Construction. Joanna loves to make people look good and she believes
this is only accomplished with her natural ability for making people
comfortable when working in front of the camera, she loves to create a naturally fun environment for her subjects and clients .”
Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Joanna Bacalso in future…
We’re revisiting Natassia Malthe (nude!). We first covered Natassia last week. This time we’re going to look at her acting career. Malthe has been in quite a few movies and TV shows. Sometimes she is credit as Natasha Malthe or Lina Teal. She was in ‘DOA: Dead or Alive’ (2006) as Ayane (The purple haired girl), you know that video game movie with Jaime Pressly, Devon Aoki and Holly Valance. Her latest movie is more of a drama and is yet to come out: ‘The Other Side of the Tracks’ where she plays Lucinda. She played a small role in ‘Sex and Death 101′ (2007) as Bambi (the movie also had Winona Ryder). Natassia Malthe also starred in some Sci-fi shows as well like “The Dead Zone”, “Dark Angel” and “Andromeda”. She’s starred in many others but too many to mention here…
Enjoy Natassia Malthe’s beautiful nude photos below. I love how she is just having fun in the photos, wouldn’t you agree? I also like how the hair was done - suits the photoshoot style as it adds volume into the photo.
Natassia Malthe was born on 19 January 1974 in Oslo, Norway to a Norwegian father (Harald Malthe) and a Filipina mother (Phin Malthe). Natissa is a pinay model and actress. The younger of two daughters, Malthe’s Norwegian father is a teacher and her Filipina mother is a retired nurse. Her only sister is Kristin Malthe, who is also a Giordano girl. Natassia was ranked #53 in Maxim’s “100 Sexiest Women” in 2003 and named #74 on the Maxim magazine “Hot 100 of 2005″ list She is sometimes credited as Natasha Malthe or Lina Teal. In Scotland, Norway and Canada, Malthe went to dance schools as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Goh Ballet Academy, and the Norwegian Opera House, for which she sang and danced while finishing high school. Later she moved to London, England to study musical theater. From there she went to Canada and landed her first part on television. We will be revisiting Natissa Malthe in the future when we look into her acting career.
Vanessa Hudgens takes a coffee break while shopping in Santa Monica and has some fun with the papparazzi. Crazy paparazzi take so many pictures… all she’s doing is getting out of a car, ordering coffee, waiting for it and leaving (and being hugged by some random fan in the process) and theres 36 photos of her doing it (below). Damn that’s crazy. Just imagine if you were at a coffee place… say Starbucks and you were just hounded with photographers… you would probably go crazy. But in all 36 photos below, Vanessa is just having fun on her coffee hit.
While we check out Vanessa Hudgens buying some coffee on her break, we might as well learn something here about coffee. Coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are roasted at temperatures around 200 °C (392 °F), during which the sugars in the bean caramelize, the bean changes color, and flavor develops. The beans are roasted to a light, medium, or dark brown color, depending on the desired flavor. The health effects of coffee are disputed, and many studies have examined the relationship between coffee consumption and certain medical conditions. Studies have suggested that the consumption of coffee lowers the risk of certain diseases but may have negative effects as well, especially when excessive. The current opinion consensus of medical experts is that moderate coffee consumption is not a health concern. Weird facts about coffee drinking: A contemporary example of coffee prohibition can be found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a religion with over 13 million followers worldwide, which calls for complete coffee abstinence. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints claims that it is both physically and spiritually unhealthy to consume coffee. This comes from the Mormon doctrine of health, given in 1833 by Mormon founder Joseph Smith, in a revelation called the Word of Wisdom. It does not identify coffee by name, but includes the statement that “hot drinks are not for the belly”, which has been interpreted to forbid both coffee and tea. That’s it for Vanessa’s coffee break - now back to work. Continue reading Vanessa Hudgens Coffee Break…

Bell’s representative Jill Fritzo released a statement that Bell “says he never received those photos”. The sex video is claimed to be a forty-five second clip that is predicted taken by a phone-camera has now erupted online dubbed ‘Open Me First’. The clip shows Vanessa sitting in front of a Christmas tree wearing only a Santa hat, pasties to cover her breasts and a red thong with mistletoe decoration.
