Picture of the Week: Me in US Weekly


It's not a full page...and it doesn't even say my name...BUT I still think it's very cool to see my likeness on the pages of one of my all time favorite magazines. I admit, not the most stimulating reading material but everybody is allowed a guilty pleasure! Not only that, in the picture it compares my look in Ralph Lauren attire to the outfit worn by the winner of Project Runway a few weeks ago when they had to create a look for opening ceremonies. So it's really a double whammy--in my favorite magazine being compared to an outfit on one of my favorite T.V. shows! Holla. I am not sure if this particular issue is still on newsstands as I bought it a couple days ago (It's the one with Jennifer Love Hewitt on the cover being skinny), but if you happen to walk by one pick it up and turn to page 14. Otherwise...I have it for you here! (albeit slightly blurry and hard to see).


p.s. I would be remiss without mentioning the incredible WR that happened last night in the men's 200 meters. I have three letters for that...OMG. I would say more but it's late and I have to be up at 5am EASTERN TIME to tape a segment for Rachael Ray. I don't think it's live so I will probably write more about that later on when I figure out when it's being aired...and perhaps more about that 19.30 which was absolutely out of this world. But for now I'm just leaving you with another picture of ME, being the self-absorbed individual that I am.

Brianna ... this is actually a question in regard to your last post.

You are in the profession, do any running feats make you skeptical? Do you ever say, hmmm ... I wonder?

How prelevant are discussions about performance enhancing drugs?

Were you skeptical of people like Marion Jones before she was caught?

Do admissions of guilt by others make you upset considering that you play it clean?

Also, are you feeling better about the Olympics?

I don't know you, but I didn't want to watch the Olympics because I felt badly for you.

You are a champ.

Hey...who's the one on the right?
She can so get it.

DES said...

Does this comparison officially mean you have "arrived"?

I would say you are close... Once they figure out your name it is a wrap. LOL.

Talk to you soon.

Dana said...

That is so freakin' AWESOME!! Congrats lady!! =)

Oscar said...

serious question here, and i'll preface it by saying that i think its pretty cool that you're in that magazine and everything. having said that though, do you feel embarrassed that you posed in the olympic outfit and you're portrayed as an olympian in the picture and you've never been one? i'm not being mean-spirited here, i'm just thinking that you seeing this photo would be a slap in the face reminder that you didn't make it happen for yourself. can you give your thoughts on that issue?

Brianna said...

I don't need this or any photo to remind me that I'm not an Olympian. It is harder for me to sit and watch the Games every night than it is to look at myself in a picture.

brit_brat said...

I'm going to get that magazine right away! Everytime you boost your 'COOLNESS' level, mine goes up a little also by association.

Bianca said...

You can officially add TIME to the list! Since you probably would NEVER read such conservative smut, I did you the favor and noted the page number.

Check out page 16 of the recent issue.

anonymousnupe said...

Oscar, she does not want to model. Keep up, ma-yan.

Los Angelista said...

Look at you! Work it! Obviously you won. I can't believe anybody would vote for the other outfit/model if you're in the running! ;)

t.v. said...

For someone who didn't even make it to the Beijing Olympics, you are sure getting a lot of exposure.

I wonder why? ;)

Sonya Richards digging way F'ing deep!!! Now that is what I'm talking about! (prior post deleted)! Unfairly.

Look how thin all these girls are!

Oh la la!

Which ones are single?

Eb the Celeb said...

Look at you all and up threw the media... congrats missy!

eclectik said...

Yo

Why do people bother commenting or even reading if they have nothing but negative or sly shit to say?

...I will never understand that

Anyway...

Hi.

anonymousnupe said...

In all fairness, eclectik, if you put it out there in the public domain you gotta be ready to take the good with the bad, brah. Granted, some folks--who shall remain anonymous (Medoblado)--take it to the extreme. But it's equally sickening, at least to me, to visit a blog where every single voice is just part of a sycophantic chorus stroking the blogger's ego, E. I hate lemurs, and more often than not there's some value to be found in dissenting opinions, especially if they are objective, well-argued views. That disqualifies Medoblado's, of course, but you get my point.

Brianna said...

dissenting opinions have their place. a post about me being in a magazine is not really a topic that i feel has room for negative opinions. in most cases, if you say what you feel with respect than it's all good. but if you only feel compelled to open your mouth with something that really adds no value to the discussion, why bother?

Looks like somebody is in love and wants to Ms. Glenn's boo with all that concern over her comments. Tell him to get in line Brianna!
