One of our first guests on the recently re-vamped ‘Sex and Muscle’ radio show was a relative newcomer called Kortney Olsen (better known as KO) and her straight talking honesty won her an instant fan base on RX.
I recently decided to follow up on some of the subjects discussed on the show in order to find out a little more about this eternal free spirit… her life, loves and where she sees the future taking her…..
Suffice it to say Celeste Bonin is an animal lover. We scheduled this interview a few different time, but I kept missing her. When she finally got back to me, she explained that she couldn't answer her phone because she was busy rescuing a pit bull from the side of the highway. Since the local SPCA didn't take pits, Celeste brought it home and is now nursing her fourth dog back to health. Compassionate and beautiful; a undeniably great combination! This is where our conversation begins.....
Looking at Stacey Pillari it is hard to believe that she is not only the mother of two children but also Grandmother to a 22-month old grandson. She has one of those classic physiques that takes me back to the days when I used to leaf through the pages of Women's Physique World (beautiful woman bodybuilders displayed in glamorous poses).
Another hard-to-believe fact is that she's only 5' 1"! Photographically, she appears Amazonian!
Ever since I became involved in the sport of bodybuilding (and, check your calendars, that wasn't yesterday...) It has always been ‘accepted logic' that in order to gain any significant muscle in the off-season you had to also gain a substantial amount of fat. Now, for most guys, adding extra weight in the off-season is not usually something to lose sleep over. However, for the female athlete, it can be both uncomfortable and distressing. I mean, society programmed women to have a certain ‘look' and that ‘look' didn't involve gaining 20, 30 or even 40lbs of extra weight in order to add a few pounds of extra muscle to their fram
Regular listeners are still talking about the night that RhondaLee Quaresma came into the RX studio and gave a performance that lit up the forums for days afterwards. Her lap dance with John Romano will go down in RX Radio history!
"Athleticism and eroticism are two sides of the same coin. The original Olympics in 776BC were held in the nude."
"Naked doesn't always mean erotic. Erotic doesn't always mean naked."
"Posing nude is an issue of choice...you choose to expose and you choose to view."
"Many women on She Muscle explore/expose their sexuality through strength and dominance; not weakness and submission."
A few weeks ago, at the IFBB Ft. Lauderdale Pro, while was watching the Pro Figure girls, one particular competitor truly stood out. I kept thinking, why don't I know who she is? I was baffled that this girl was in the first callout and looked so amazing, yet I'd never heard of her or seen her before. Ironically, the guy sitting next to me was an obvious fan; in fact, it turns out, he was her trainer. After a few key questions, I figured out pretty quickly why I'd never heard of her before....
Siobhan Tewari has had quite a year so far, placing 9th in the NY Pro and 5th in both the Europa and Jacksonville shows. A name that may not be too familiar to some of you, this half Chinese, half Lebanese beauty has been competing on and off for the past 18 years and, at 41 yrs old, she is living proof that in bodybuilding age is no obstacle if you have the heart and the will to succeed. I caught up with Siobhan recently and decided to find out a little more about how she got involved in this sport...and her passion for motorcycle riding!
If you've followed any Rx Muscle Live Play-by-Play at a pro figure event this year, then you've heard of our favorite figure underdog, Tivisay Briceno. After being overlooked by the judges for most of the year, she finally got some respect at the Atlantic City Pro with a 5th place finish in the Open and a 2nd in the Pro Master's class. She might not be an underdog any longer, but it's still hard not to route for that beautiful face and enticing physique.
