Angie Sanclemente – Hot Colombian Beauty Queen Turned Drug Lord

Reputed Drug Lord and Colombian babe Angie Sanclemente Valencia Beauty Queen and Reputed Drug Lord, began her notorious rise to fame by slowly moving her way up the social ladder.

Soon she felt at home with athletes, celebrities, moguls, and drug lords. Her career skyrocketed and at the age of twenty-one she won the title of Reinado Internacional del Café (International Queen of Coffee) beauty pageant in Colombia.

Afterwards she spent eight years in Mexico before moving to Buenos Aires with her Argentinean boyfriend, Nicolas Gualco.

She rose to fame as the ringleader of one of the world’s largest Colombian drug rings, while her occupation as a lingerie model and TV star thrived.

She employed a simple method of transporting the drugs from Argentina to England by way of Cancun, using models, paying them up to five thousand dollars to pack one hundred pounds of cocaine into their luggage.

They wore skimpy dresses through customs, causing the agents to forfeit common sense and do anything to expedite the women’s clearance.

Her recklessness and craving for media attention brought about the beginning of her downfall. On December 13, 2009, authorities stopped a twenty-one year old Colombian model named Maria Noel Lopez Iglesias in Eziza International Airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina as she prepared to board a flight bound for Cancun. Investigation of her suitcase revealed one hundred twenty-one pounds of cocaine.

Iglesias led them to an apartment in Buenos Aires where three other individuals were implicated and arrested, with a warrant issued for Valencia’s arrest.

She abandoned a hotel room authorities believed she occupied; however they traced an address through her Pomeranian dog’s registration records. Further investigation revealed this to be an abandoned warehouse.

In January of 2010, Gualco left his home to purchase a phone card and never returned. Worried, Valencia discovered news of his arrest as a suspect in a drug trafficking case.

She panicked and fled, evading authorities for five months until her arrest in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in May of the same year. She maintained her innocence throughout her trial, claiming she came to Argentina to meet Gualco’s family and marry him, not smuggle drugs.

Valencia blamed Gualco’s uncle, for tempting him into the family run drug business upon his return to Argentina.

The prosecution brought evidence of a phone call made by her to his uncle, asking him to call Fermin, an alleged Mexican kingpin.

She claimed the call was made as a favor to her fiance, who feared his uncle’s life was in danger, with no reference made to drugs or money.

Once renowned for her beauty and grace, this Colombian beauty queen now resides in a prison cell, serving her sentence of six years and eight months.

Her downfall began with the arrest of model Maria Noel Lopez and ended with Valencia’s capture in May of 2010. She maintains her innocence and claims her fiance’s family pulled her in and used her as a scapegoat.

Valeria Lukyanova – Ukrainian Barbie Doll

ukrainian-barbie dollValeria Lukyanova is a 21 year old Ukranian model who has transformed her appearance, through the use of plastic surgery and cosmetics, to become a living breathing version of the famous toy Barbie doll.

She has become notorious for this achievement and describes herself as the most famous Russian woman on the Internet in Russia.

Like Barbie, Lukyanova has long blond hair, big blue eyes, a curved waist and a generous bosom.

In her photographs this striking Ukrainian girl looks astonishingly like the toy she is named after through the use of make up which gives her skin a perfect, almost plastic appearance and her lips the bow shape of the original Barbie.

In her videos she explains that she uses opaque contact lenses to give her the wide-eyed look of the doll as well.

While her bizarre homage to a fifties toy doll has brought her Internet fame, many people have criticized, and some are outright shocked at, this obsession with so-called physical perfection. People have said that she looks ugly and that her perfect features make her look inhuman.

If nothing else, her look is extremely artificial and calculated leading many to speculate on whether she has had plastic surgery to achieve her looks.

If she has then the action would not be unprecedented: a British woman named Sarah Burge is said to have paid over $800,000 for medical procedures to give herself the same appearance and is said to have had a successful career as a Barbie look alike.

Human barbie dollThis Ukrainian Doll was born in the Moldavian city of Tiraspol, and currently has 466 videos uploaded to her YouTube account with more than 17 million views. She also has 555,000 Facebook fans at last count.

One unexpected side effect of Lukyanova’s fame is that she has sparked an interest in Ukrainian women around the world.

Many International dating sites are seeing an uptick in traffic to their women’s Ukraine dating profiles since Valeria hit the scene. It would seem that many men would love to date a picture perfect Ukraine girl of their own.

Currently, Valeria lives in Odessa in the Ukraine where she is a musician who enjoys practicing astral projection when not imitating Barbie on the internet.

When asked whether she sees herself as a model, singer or artist she claimed that none of those things capture her true essence which she seeks to find through leaving her physical body and travelling throughout the earth and universe in her spirit form.

In fact, Lukyanova is a teacher at the School of Out-of-Body Travel.

“It’s an international school in which our instructors show students how to leave their physical body and travel in their spiritual body, where you can visit any place on the planet and in the universe. I know that this is the future of mankind and that it has huge potential.”

Wow!

If nothing else, Lukyanova has become a viral phenomenon in this new era of instant internet fame and has even spawned some imitators where women with slim figures and fine features have sought to recreate themselves as living dolls.

Bachelors Abroad Showcases Overseas Relationships On National Geogrphic’s Channel

bachelors abroadOne doesn’t need to ask if Bachelors Abroad – Is This Show for Real? Because if one thinks about it, there’s a reality TV show for every taste and subject area.

But, when it comes to “Bachelors Aboard,” producers say it’s an interesting look at what males are facing overseas when it comes to finding partners they enjoy.

A bachelor by definition is a male who is not married, but who dates women as part of his lifestyle.

Thus, the new reality TV show from National Geographic titled “Bachelors Abroad” mirrors the bachelor definition in various ways.

For instance, a big joke with those bachelors showcased on the show is when and if they will ever marry.

While these bachelors will tease that they’d like to marry someday, they seem content at just playing the field and dating lots and lots of women.

For instance, the current “Bachelor” American TV program has one male being chased by a whole group of women.

However, this new National Geographic reality TV show uses various men living overseas trying to find the right woman to date.

Thus, the U.S. version of a TV reality show about one bachelor having his pick from a group of women is not as realistic as National Geographic producers wanted with this new show Bachelors Abroad that investigates how very difficult it is for men to find the right match overseas where American male macho is not always the ideal for foreign women.

Bachelors Abroad TVIn turn, this show Bachelors Abroad has the makings for really good TV drama and comedy, say critics, because “there’s never been an American based television show that spotlights bachelors both living overseas and also their love interests.

“I think it will be very interesting to watch,” says a 30-something bachelor named John who still lives with his mother like many Italian bachelors do in Italy. “I want to see if my counterparts in Italy, Germany, England or Spain feel like I do about being a confirmed bachelor these days.”

Overall, this new TV show “Bachelors Abroad” attempts to showcase the interesting lifestyle of single men who are the hunt for women in hopes of either a lasting relationship or even marriage.
