HBO Asia Premieres Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds Documentary "Bright Lights" 8 January, 9 AM


It has been a difficult holiday season for Star Wars fans with the passing away of Carrie Fisher on 27 December 2016. She was well-loved and admired for her roles as Princess/ General Leia in the Star Wars movies, and her death was unexpected.

Worse still, a day later, her 84-year-old mother and Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, passed away of a suspected stroke. The two women live next door to each other and were very close.

According to Carrie Fisher's brother Todd Fisher, his mother had said that "she really wanted to be with Carrie" just before she died. Debbie Reynolds is best remembered singing and dancing beside A-listers Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor in the movie musical "Singing in the Rain".

AsiaPop Comic Con Manila 2015: Jason Momoa No Longer Attending; Look out for Amalgamated Dynamics

NEWS ALERT!

Celebrity guest Jason Momoa will no longer be attending AsiaPop Comicon Manila (APCC Manila).

This is very unfortunate, but as in the case of actors, their film schedules and opportunities can come up in the last minute, and such guest cancellations are quite common in the convention scene.

Do not feel too disappointed though! Red Dot Diva says that APCC is still set to heat up the convention floor on 18 to 20 September. Their current guest list is one of the best seen in this region so far, encompassing a very broad range of genres for any respectable geek.

One exhibit area to look for is the one hosted by Academy Award-winning special effects studio Amalgamated Dynamics (AD), a leader in prostethics and animatronics.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Where VIPs RIP

Right in the heart of Hollywood is one of Los Angeles' oldest cemetery. The 114 year-old cemetery is aptly named Hollywood Forever, for it was the chosen resting place by many starry VIPs.

No surprise there since the site is just next to Paramount Studios. And in addition, when one stands on the main driveway looking back to the front gates, the iconic Hollywood sign could clearly be seen.

Having a morbid interest in cemeteries (the older, the better), Red Dot Diva roped in good friend Chelle for a morning walk at Hollywood Forever last week. With the help of a $5 map purchased from the flower shop, the two set off to hunt down a few famous graves.

Assembled! For the Avengers World Premiere in LA!

Ever fancy yourself strolling down a red carpet?

Well, Red Dot Diva's celeb-shoulder-rubbing glamourista pal Chelle managed to attend a red carpet premiere in Hollywood again recently. And this time, it was for the superhero movie most geeks have been waiting for - "The Avengers"!

Here is her account of the wonderful night amongst the stars.

On Wednesday, April 11th, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the red carpet premiere of "The Avengers" at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

The day started out kinda chilly and rainy but as soon as we gathered at the barriers, the rain had pretty much gone away. Even though we didn’t need to stand at the barriers, Laura and I thought that it would be fun to hang out with fellow tumblr/ twitter friends including THE Godofbadassery who I think is a really cool sweet girl. We hung out till around 3pm and then headed back to my house (which was thankfully close to the theater) to get ready for our Avengers Adventure.

Stan Lee's Shiny New Star!

And Finally.... on 5 January 2011, 88-year-old legendary comic creator and he-of-many-cameos, Stan Lee, was given his very own star along Hollywood's Walk of Fame!!

Red Dot Diva says that it's about time! What took them so long?!?!

After spending his lifetime creating all those well-loved superheroes and super-villains, Mr. Stan Lee's name is now immortalized on a star in front of the Live Nation building at 7072 Hollywood Blvd. (Just in case, if one wants to gawk at the shiny new star, Red Dot Diva says.) And BTW, it is the 2,428th star to be placed on the Hollywood sidewalks.

Stan Lee looked all hale and hearty and full of smiles at the ceremony. He was accompanied by his equally radiant wife, Joan. With his trademark shout of "Excelsior!" his star was unveiled, with Paul Newman and Sophia Loren as his star's "neighbours".

When she gets that age, Red Dot Diva hopes she still looks this mischievously jaunty and in the pink of health.

So... another excuse to walk down Hollywood Boulevard maybe? The last time Red Dot Diva was there in July 2010, she stroked Keanu Reeves star and just about molested Antonio Banderas'.

The next time, she may well hunt down and get pervy with Stan Lee's star! (Don't think he'd mind, right?) XD
