Hello friends and future frenemies! Welcome to my little blog section on the entertaining and educational website that is 2famous.tv. I am honored to be 2famous’s first ever guest blogger as well as first female presence on the site. In upholding my prestigious position, I’ll (most likely) add even more edutainment to their fantastic world of fun with my posts. So without much further ado, here’s a little about me.

You know what, I’m glad the Middle Eastern Gulf region is taking into account all kinds of sexy when it comes to deporting men.
Because the most recent deportee is a 55-year old German man, Rolf Buccholz, internationally known for holding the Guinness World Record in having the most body piercings.
Buchholz flew to Dubai to party it up at Circque le Soir, a club that pro... [more]
Norwegians are the masters of understatement. When something is gargantuan, they’ll say ‘It’s a bit big’ and when something’s breathtakingly beautiful, they’ll say ‘It’s nice.’ If a friend made a $10 million profit on a business deal, they’d claim he made ‘a bit of money.’
