Belen Rodriguez has recently taken her clothes off for 2Jewels, a famous jewellery brand, and replaced them with a set of beautiful jewels. But this is not the first time that the gorgeous show girl from Argentina goes naked; since her debut on Italian television, her career has been almost exclusively based on her good looks and scandalous love affairs, especially the one with photographer Fabrizio Corona. In any case, it is not for us to pass judgment on her career choices; we just want to show you the beautiful photos from the shooting.
Monica Bellucci will guest star in ten episodes of Ris Roma2 – Delitti imperfetti, a popular tv series featuring forensic science. The Italian actress famous for such international blockbusters as The Matrix Reloaded and The Passion Of The Christ is now in Turkey shooting a new film called the Rhynos Season, but his fans here in Italy can’t wait to see her play in this highly successful Italian tv series aired on Canale 5; according to sources, the beautiful actress will be the love interest of Daniele Ghirelli played by Italian actor Fabio Troiani. The role of Monica Bellucci was created when the series was in post-production, so cast and crew had to go back to Cinecittà and start shooting again.
The pic shows Federica Nargi having fun at the disco in Milano Marittima, one of Italy’s fun capitals. The show girl took a break from the Stricia la notizia show on Italian television and apparently from her boyfriend hunky football player Alessandro Matri too. Judging from her broad smile and twinkling eyes, she seems not to miss him at all!
To celebrate 150 years of Italian unification, Italy went back to what it knew best about its traditions and could most celebrate. National broadcaster RAI treated Italians to a live performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s Nabucco on Italian television last night. It’s a difficult move to make opera accessible to the population via an entire opera length national broadcast, but for those of us who don’t mind an Italian aria, it wasn’t a bad thing (given the general quality on Italian television, you could do much worse).
Nabucco was broadcast from Rome and before the performance started, the orchestra played the Italian national anthem “Fratelli d’Italia”. In attendance was Italy’s president Giorgio Napolitano and prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, among other Italian dignitaries. To hear some of what you missed, see the video after the jump of a performance of Verdi’s Va’ Pensiero.
Valentino Rossi confermed he is one of Italy’s greatest sports stars and all-round funny guys on the Italian television cabaret show, Chiambretti Night. The show is hosted by Piero Chiambretti and gave the motorcycle champion the opportunity to demonstrate that he is still a down-to-earth, nice guy living a dream he has had for many years.
Valentino Rossi talked of his number 46, his love life and his career, as Chiambretti didn’t leave much untouched ground. Valentino Rossi is now 32 years old and has been racing since he was young. According to the program, Rossi wanted to open a kiosk when he was about 17 years old, but his precocious talent gave him other ambitions.
Dressed as if he was having a beer at home with the boys, Valentino always behaves as if he were among friends. He jokingly said that at 32 he’s still happy in MotoGP, and that at the age of 40 to 42 years he will spend his retirement in Superbike (perhaps a jab at fellow motorbike champion and old rival, Max Biaggi). While Rossi’s first tests with Ducati didn’t go too well, he hasn’t regretted his decision to move there from Yamaha: news that took the motorcycle world by storm and handed Italians a long-harboured fantasy that they would see Rossi in red.
After seeing Elisabetta Canalis’ dancing performances and interview with Robert de Niro at the 2011 Sanremo Festival, it’s time to examine her co-host and showgirl competitor, Belen Rodriguez. The Argentinian model and entertainer has exploded onto the Italian showgirl scene, being both a controversial and well-loved figure.
After a long relationship with Italian football star, Marco Borriello, Belen started dating infamous paparazzo Fabrizio Corona, which hasn’t done her reputation many favours. But she seems to have risen above that, and her popularity of late has only grown, such that she was invited to be a part of the Sanremo festival, alongside Elisabetta Canalis. The latter has enjoyed an immensely high profile since her relationship with George Clooney started.
Belen could have been considered the underdog at the festival: a foreigner and with no Oscars boyfriend to flaunt. It seems to have created a situation though, where Belen showed off her entertainer characteristics. Apart from her sensual looks and sometimes girlish shyness, Rodriguez showed she can dance and sing - and be nice, which is what won over the Italian public. For this showgirl battle, the fascination of the foreigner and a slightly more talented performance, beat the local star, Elisabetta Canalis, who was only proved to be out of her depth.
Elenoire Casalegno bares almost all for Playboy Italia. After the success of her latest show on Italian Television, the former showgirl could not resist the temptation to go nude and appear on the cover of such a famous magazine! She used the Playboy interview that accompanies the sexy shoot to say that men are often frightened by her statuary body, but deep down inside – she revealed – I’m just a tomboy!
The Italian television event of the year was spiced up by the battle between showgirls Elisabetta Canalis and Belen Rodriguez. While your standard Italian showgirl here in Italy, Canalis has been launched into the international scene by her relationship with George Clooney. Apart from the 2011 Sanremo festival playing on the attractiveness of the two ladies, the couple were required to actually do something every so often in a kind of ongoing talent quest throughout the show.
Elisabetta Canalis doesn’t enjoy huge popularity here in Italy and apart from the handbag factor, many Italians wonder what a man like George Clooney is doing with the girl. But what do the Americans think about Canalis, especially after her performances at the 2011 Sanremo festival?
While she is an attractive girl, the indignity of Canalis’ dancing and the now infamous interview with Robert de Niro (video after the jump) have done her no favours in Italy or abroad, for that matter. While overseas, Canalis has been elevated to professions of model, actress and dancer, to us in Italy she is just a showgirl. One comment on JustJared about Canalis’ Just a Boy dance at Sanremo summarises thus:
Nina Moric has just landed on the Isola dei famosi or Island of the Famous, the Italian version of Celebrity Survivor. The former top model who won the look of the year in 1996, walked the runway for Versace, Cavalli and Valentino and danced with Ricky Martin in the Livin’ La Vida Loca video, is now trying to leave behind her tempestuous divorce from Italian paparazzo Fabrizio Corona. With her participation in this highly popular show, she also hopes to revive her career on Italian television.
