"Maria Elena is making beautiful music all over the world ."
"Karen McDougal is as all-American as you can get, see how this fitness cover girl keeps in such great shape in her 40's!"
"Louann Fernald is a very dynamic lady that shares a special bond with beloved Dorothy Stratten."
1. Louann you were one of the first Hispanic Playmates in the 1970s, how did that change your life?
Being a Playmate changed my life, but being Hispanic didn't have much to do with that. My mom raised me as many minority parents did back then, away from her culture and family, immersed in mainstream American culture. She didn't teach me Spanish, but I took 2 years of Spanish in high school,which didn't quite make up for it.
I used Playboy to finish paying my way through college because my parents, being very strict, (Hispanics typically are), imposed strict rules and curfews on me until--at 19-- I rebelled and emancipated myself.
What was the question again, Devin? Oh yes, lol. How did Playboy change my life?
It picked me up and put me into a jet stream of travel, opportunities, new faces, and adventures which, when I landed back on the ground again 2 years later, left me with a permanently wider perspective than I think I might have had if I hadn't done Playboy.

It seems as you age, the pounds naturally creep up on you and the constant quest to lose weight becomes the focus for more and more women over 40. The 40 diet becomes the never ending talk of conversation with women over 40.
We can no longer fit into those cute little dresses because hormones have kicked in and made our boobs bigger.
Then there is the balance of trying to fit in exercise and making conscious choices in what we feed our family at mealtime. This is on top of the menopausal symptoms that make us seem constantly irritable mainly because we just don’t feel that great about ourselves. The younger version of ourselves seems long gone and we are in the search of a solution to this never ending problem.
Diet pills, fad diets, cutting carbs, fasting, yes we have done it all and it seems none of it really works for very long. Those pounds start to creep back up making it harder for us to combat this cycle of what has happened to our bodies.
1. Kim you are so passionate about saving animals and so dedicated to doing so. When did you know this was your mission in life?
In 2008 I went undercover into a pet shop to investigate a puppy mill-after that I knew I would spend the rest of my life doing something to help animals
2. You have three Shelter Hope Pet Shops now. Please tell us how you came up with this unique concept and what you hope to achieve with them?
While protesting puppy mill pet shops I realized that if we couldn't beat them we needed to join them, but instead of showing the public mass produced puppies from mills we would show dogs from death row.
Luscious Baking Soda Scrub
Do you want to get your skin as smooth as a baby's bottom? Nothing polishes the face better than the fine granules of baking soda. I love to use this simple and inexpensive home remedy to smooth the skin, especially on the face. It’s quick and easy. It also travels well, dry in a sealed plastic baggy.
First, take a scoop of baking soda and add a small amount of water, just enough to make a paste.Take the paste and put it on your face rubbing in a circular motion. Cover the whole face and stop when you feel that your face is fully cleaned and polished. Lastly, run warm water and rinse. Make sure you get all the granules off.
"Charlotte Kemp is a classic Playboy Playmate from the 1980s and she's been writing a book of centerfold stories for many years to share with us. A couple of my own stories are included and Char as we call her, gives us some insight on it!"
It is not so much of a memoir as it is stories from Icons, photographers, and models. I wanted some kind of representation of our lives that have never been brought to the media. I knew 20 years ago when I started this book that we as women had very poignant, tragic, interesting stories to tell that the PR firm would never tell. The book will engage readers to have a glimpse into our real lives and not just what everyone thinks we are?
"Katharine McEwan has a relationship being in front and behind the camera, see why this actress gives it her all in her latest film."
1. Katharine you wrote and produced the film "Solitary" which is getting quite a buzz at the film festivals. What inspired you to write this particular movie?
I wanted to look at what happens when a family chooses an illusion of functionality over the truth, and who gets sacrificed in that equation. I feel that tragic events will probably always happen in families, but if we could handle them differently, both individually and as a society, fewer lives might be destroyed as a result. Stories about family secrets, and the impact those secrets have on us, resonate strongly with me.
2. The character Nora spirals out of control due to her drinking and ends up in a very dark place revealing some pretty heavy secrets.How did you prepare for such a role?
I felt Nora's drinking was a symptom of something much deeper, and it was from that place that I started. I had to connect to her sense of isolation, and identify all the ways in which she learned to cope with that isolation.
