Kim Kardashian and 'Temptation'

On March 29th,  Tyler Perry's 'Temptation' starring Kim Kardashian will be released at a theater near you. Will Kardashian and Temptation, or Temptation and Kardashian, generate big box office? Is the Kim Kardashian Effect still alive and well?

The premise of the film is intriguing.  A highly intelligent, beautiful woman finds herself unfulfilled at the office.  Is her lack of fulfillment, only at the office or does it extend to her marriage as well? Casting Kardashian in a movie about relationships - entitled 'Temptation' - gotta love it. Ms. Kardashian shares her thoughts the film:

Yes, what a conversation. Temptation from the female point of view. Will this film open the eyes of couples and be a difference maker? It'll be interesting to see what impact, if any this film has.

Katherine Webb and 'Splash' - Why Not?

'Splash' is the latest entry in Britain's continuing invasion of American pop culture.  The season finale of 'Downton Abbey' behind us, ABC has imported this offering of celebrities and high-diving in front of a live audience.  Shakespeare in the Park - let's not get ridiculous- 'Splash' is light, fun, at times inspiring entertainment.

In reality (no pun intended), watching Louie Anderson at age fifty-nine and weighing 400lbs. diving off a 23ft. platform, followed by basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - at sixty-five    
attempting a backward somersault - is inspiring.  Drake Bell, Ndamukong Suh, and Rory Bushfield are athletic types that helped me appreciate just how difficult the sport of diving is.

Katherine Webb and colleagues - Tuesday at 8 p.m. on ABC - Why Not?

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn - A "Liger" Is Born?

 The first time i heard the descriptive word "Liger", was while watching the film Napoleon Dynamite:

Deb - What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite - A liger.
Deb - What's a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite - It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed…

This Facebook post of Lindsey Vonn confirms she and Tiger Woods are indeed a couple. Will the word Liger,  take on new meaning in 2013 and beyond? Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are true Superstar athletes in their respective sports. 

Woods has won two golf tournaments this year, and before Vonn had a season-endinhg injury, she had captured her sixth World Cup season title. 

Will Vonn be a difference maker for Woods this year? Will his drought of wins in majors end, possibly next month at The Masters? Only time will tell, but for now it'll be fun seeing how all this plays out....
