Whose Shoes Wedensday…The Answer!

Manolo asked, whose shoes?

Manolo answers, it is the Rachel Ray!

Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend the Beth, who correctly guessed what the Manolo thought was one of the most difficult of all the Whose Shoes Wednesdays.

P.S. The Manolo previously had the few words to say about Rachel Ray and her shoes.

Macy Gray, Celebrity Designer

Manolo says, Nooooooo!

Macy is also experimenting with other channels of expression. The singer has created a fashion line due out in fall.

“It’s called Humps. It’s actually for voluptuous, curvaceous girls, girls with thighs and hips. Especially here in LA, it’s hard to find clothes that do big sizes. We created this line so that these billions of women can have great clothes that fit them and that are still affordable, too.”

The line reflects her multi-hued personality. “It’s real, real colorful and graphic-driven – everyday streetwear, really comfortable, casual great stuff.” So where does she go shopping? “I like H&M! They’re my favorite. I’m not a big designer person. I like simple, classic shit like Calvin Klein and DKNY. I love DKNY. I know there are a lot of new designers, but I’m not really into them.”

And with this news, the final circle of Celebrity Fashion Hell has opened, releasing unspeakable atrocities into the world.

P.S. Thanks to the Manolo’s internet friend the Catwalk Queen.

Readings from the Book of Hasselhoff

Manolo says, daily readings from Don’t Hassel the Hoff. Today, page 214.

My character, Mungo Prentice, is the bearded pony-tailed captain of the slave ship Defiance, a man who has given up on the world until he meets Karen Allen’s Miss Farewell while transporting her to Africa to find her father, Captain Francis Farewell (James Fox). Joshua Sinclair had based Prentice on John Newton, composer of the hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ and the self-proclaimed ‘wretch’ of the lyrics. Newton was the captain of a slave ship who, on a homeward voyage on 10 May 1748, experienced a ‘great deliverance’ when his ship was saved from a violent storm as though by divine intervention. Newton became a clergyman, who wrote the Olney Hymns with William Cowper and campaigned against slavery.

The Word of the Hoff!

Things the Manolo Does Not Understand

Manolo says, to be counted among the things the Manolo does not understand is this, the Reverse Eternity Ring, made of platinum and containing two carats of diamonds hidden inside the band.

All the Manolo can do when presented with such wrong-headed objects is cite to you the scripture Luke 11:33
