“We want to include everyone and make everyone feel important and special,” said Iona Calhoun-Battiste, founder of the Iona Calhoun School of Ballet at the South Shore Cultural Center. “But we recognize that not everyone is at the same level, so how do you support the girls who are really good and want to dance as a career, and how do you support those that dance recreationally, but it’s still important to them?” It’s this type …
When writer of Sharknado, Thunder Levin, was asked what to expect in the sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, he said, “Well, I think there might be some tornados…and we might have a few sharks.” He paused and then released a chuckle.

This short film turned feature film opens with Slate’s character, Donna Stern, a soon-to-be out of work bookstore clerk and unpaid comedian, reciting some pretty uncomfortable stand-up material in a bar setting. After just a few minutes into the movie, you realize this is going to be one of those films and you accept the fact that you may be a little offended by the end of it. Although, the cringe-worthy truth is definitely where the comedy stems and … Read more
She is fun, fabulous and fierce. She is chic, intelligent and in-the-know. But most of all, the Cheeky chick is the kind of woman who embraces, admires, respects, smiles at and opens her heart to other fabulous chicks. Now THAT'S Cheeky, darling!
