People's 100 Most Beautiful List

"His pale, otherworldly complexion may make girls swoon, but the British heartthrob, 23, says looking the part of a lovesick vampire in the Twilight series isn't quite as thrilling: "Having that makeup put on every single day, as soon as you get it taken off it's like, 'Oh, you do look normal. You look healthy now."

Ok, are we surprised? Not one bit ;)

It's Official: Bill Condon to Direct BD

Here is a press release from Summit Entertainment that came out today:


Los Angeles, CA April 28, 2010 — Summit Entertainment has confirmed that Academy Award winner Bill Condon will direct THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg, and will star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt, and Stephenie Meyer will produce the project.

"Bringing Stephenie Meyer's BREAKING DAWN to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity," said Erik Feig, President of Production and Acquisitions, for Summit Entertainment.

Added author Stephenie Meyer, "I'm so thrilled that Bill wants to work with us. I think he's going to be a great fit, and I'm excited to see what he does with the material."

"I'm very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book—and we're hoping to create an equally unique experience," said Bill Condon.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.

Condon is well known for writing and directing DREAMGIRLS, KINSEY, and GODS AND MONSTERS, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 1999. He was nominated for a second Oscar for his screenplay for the movie musical CHICAGO in 2003. Most recently the multi-hyphenate directed the pilot episode for the Showtime series "The Big C" and produced the 81st Annual Academy Awards telecast, hosted by Hugh Jackman."

So did ya notice who's tossing her hat into producing the movie??? Looks like Stephenie is making sure her vision will be made the way she wants it to be done. Amazing! I think it's great for her and could lead into a whole lot more for her as well.

Thank You David Slade!

Tweeted from David Slade:

"Howard Shore composer and conductor at Abbey Rd Studios with Orchestra. Our sound score recording is complete and there are no words to describe it. The film just got more exciting. "

Seriously, this gave me goosebumps. I love the soundtracks to movies, but oh my, a score composed just so, can emotionally take me right back to a scene. I think it's more invaluable to a film. Now to hear how taken back David was by the finishing...well, it's gotta be good!

The Big Post Edition: March & April Events!

Wow! What a whirlwind couple of weeks! Between the New Moon dvd release, our Southeast Texas Twilight Moms dvd release viewing party, and the convention- seems like I have been breathing all things Twilight lately. Being so immersed is not a bad thing, but leaves little time to blog and share it.

First was the dvd release at Wal-Mart. It was great to spend time in line with friends and my daughter. Not so happy when they didn't have any blu ray copies, but got mine the next morning.

The dvd release party was a blast! I hosted it at my home and had a wonderful turnout! Got a chance to meet new friends & see some I had met at previous events. We were a bunch of giggly girls :)

My Cullen family pictures!

Gift exchange time

Now for the Houston Twilight Convention...that I was resigned not to attend. With a lucky phone call to a radio station, my friend Belki won 2 weekend passes to the convention! Just being there was amazingly fun!
