Serena Williams Beautiful at Hamptons Magazine Cover Party

Serena Williams hosted the Hamptons Magazine Cover Party in New York City wearing a cute mini leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress. The party was to celebrate Hamptons Magazine cover, at Pranna. The tennis star and current world number 1 appeared sexy in black and white on the cover of Hamptons Magazine recently. She accessorized with earrings, a bead bracelet, a diamond ring, and a chunky oval ring. The dress color flattered her skin tone. She was joined by hip hop mogul Russell Simmons at the party and the two posed together for photogs.

Her shoulder length hair, styled in loose waves with a side parting, draped her shoulders. She also wore thick eyeliner and nude shimmering lip gloss. Her strappy dress revealed a cute flower tattoo on her left shoulder. Her black leg cast on the right foot was no distraction as she looked stylish, gorgeous and radiant like never before. The rumours about a possible “nose job” were not true at all. She was using a new make-up technique which added the illusion of more defined facial features.

Serena reportedly hurt her foot this July when she stepped over a broken glass in a German restaurant while celebrating her 13th Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon. In the accompanying cover story, she talks about her injury and how it has given her time to relax and and do things off court.

“I can actually use the recovery time. I’m so active trying to produce television shows now, writing and playing tennis—and on top of that, winning Grand Slams—that it’s good for me to just have some time off. At first I dreaded it, but I’m sleeping a lot, which is good, and I’m being babied.” Then she added: “A year from now, I see myself trying to compete and win Grand Slams, but maybe not playing such a full schedule so I can focus on the other things in my life, like doing more in show business,” she said.

Serena has her own fashion line called Aneres, which is her first name (Serena) spelled backward. In 2009 she launched a signature collection of handbags and jewelry titled “Signature Statement” which is sold mainly on the Home Shopping Network.

She is expected to spend her year as Miss Universe drawing attention to the plight of people with HIV/AIDS and breast cancer, according to pageant officials. Navarrete’s question, which came from Olympic gold medalist skater Evan Lysacek, asked her for her views on what to do about the problem of children using the Internet without proper supervision.

She responded: “I do believe that the Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time,” and “We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family.”

The judges were satisfied. Former Miss USA judge Alicia Jacobs, seated in the Events Center a row ahead of Miss Universe owner Donald Trump.

The Last Exorcism Movie goes viral using ChatRoulette

The social Webcam Chat service known as Chatroulette, has been used in a viral marketing campaign for the new film, The Last Exorcism (2010). The campaign is sure to bring a measure of sick satisfaction to those who have dared enter the world of ChatRoulette recently. The Webcam chat service has a reputation for consisting mostly of boys and men looking for women. That is at least a small part of why the campaign on Chat Roulette works.

Videos are making the rounds of young male Chat Rouletters talking with a pretty girl who starts to take off her top. Before any real skin is revealed, her eyes suddenly roll back into her head, her skin turns sallow and blood gushes out of her evil eyes.

In another version of the viral “trailer” or “Interactive teaser”, she breaks her own neck. That pretty girl is possessed by the devil and happens to be the star of a new horror movie. The URL address for the movie’s website flashes across the screen as her chat victims stare on with horror and disbelief. Way to ruin the mood, marketers.

Is this a case of sexual schadenfreude or is it just a fun Internet prank? I leave it up to you to decide and comment on this idea.
