How are we already halfway through 2021!? I don't know about anyone else, but my brain refuses to understand the notion of time anymore.

How are you planning to spend the rest of the year? I like to use June as a way to reflect and figure out the plan for the next half of the year, and it'll be the same this year. I may share some of my planning and thoughts along the way along with new projects and happenings too.

Romi Dames

Meet Romi Dames or maybe if we referred to her as 'Traci Van Horn' you'd recognise her instantly! Romi plays Traci in Hannah Montana – which kid or tween doesn't watch the show? So, I decided to question her about her snobby character and her trademark nasal voice. How did you get into acting and what was your first role like - were you nervous? My very first performance was in a community theatre production of the musical "Annie". I played Molly, one of the orphan girls. I don't remember if I was nervous or not, I just remember the feeling of being in the spotlight and owning it - one of the best feelings in the world. I do get nervous even now, though, before I go on-stage or before a photoshoot. Performing is so personal, you're putting a part of yourself out there in the world, and you don't know...

Catherine Grenfell

Who is Catherine Grenfell you ask? Well, she's one of the coolest ladies on radio right now! Maybe you recognise her for being a part of the weekday Fresh Drive show or for her own radio show (Live)5 on Saturdays. Cath's got it all; style and attitude! Everyone wants to know what makes this ultra cool woman who she is so I decided to do just that. She tells us about Djing with her husband to her behind-the-scenes work at The Fresh Drive Show. What is your most earliest memory of music? My mom started teaching me to play the piano when I was four and I continued to play and even took it as a subject at school. My dad took me to my first concert when I was about ten [to] Mango Groove at the Standard Bank Arena - I was blown away. Had entering the entertainment/music industry always been something...

Alexa Prisco

We have all been glued to the drama on Jerseylicious, after all, big hair means big drama, right? If it isn't Tracy fighting with Olivia then it's Gayle stressing over an event at the Gatsby Salon. Alexa Prisco (28) aka The Glam Fairy is known for her in-your-face attitude and love for a smokey eye. I caught up with her to see what makes this Glam Fairy sparkle: Had you always wanted to enter into the beauty industry? If not, what had you then envisioned for yourself? I actually majored in English writing in college and while I always had a fascination with make-up I never thought It would be my career...

Cody Simpson

Tousled blonde hair, baby face and blue eyes are the trademark features of current up-and-coming teen idol, Cody Simpson. Cody (originally from Australia, now living in Los Angeles) has won the hearts of many teen girls all over the world - just over three million to be exact judging from a combination of his Facebook and Twitter following. He's been compared to Justin Bieber due to his crazy growth of popularity on Youtube, but all Cody wants to be known for is being himself rather than a clone of the Biebs. Cody says he always had a dream of making a career out of music, but he was just never sure about when it would occur. The question is, how did he end up becoming so famous on Youtube? He did a cover performance of Jason DeRulo's "I'm Yours" which he had a friend film off a video camera. Cody liked...

Gregg Sulkin

You may know him for being Selena Gomez’s boyfriend, Mason in Wizards of Waverly Place or you may know him as Wesley on Pretty Little Liars, but one thing we do know is that British-born actor, Gregg Sulkin is someone to keep an eye out on! He’s had a great transition from his Disney projects to his new work and I can definitely see him replacing Chris Pine in the Hollywood scene! Charming, handsome, funny and not forgetting single, Gregg took some time out of his hectic schedule to chat to me about his time on Wizards, future projects, his love for sport and wanting to marry a South African woman. Michelle Govender: Hi Gregg, how are you? Gregg Sulkin: Hey, I’m good! Oh my God, I love your accent already! MG: [laughs] thank you so much! My first question is, what was it like to work on the Wizards movie set; what...

Tracy DiMarco

Who has not been hooked on to the Jerseylicious reality show about a group of hair stylists and make-up artists living in New Jersey? If you happen to be the select few who are living under a rock, well, continue reading anyway as we have main cast member, Tracy Catherine DiMarco open up about life at the salon and why she despises Olivia like a bad rash! What is your first memory of beauty, hair and makeup? When I was three my mother took me shopping and she turned around to find me braiding the fringe of a leather jacket! Haha, she said before I could spell I could do hair! Had you always wanted to be in the beauty industry? If not, what had you wanted to do with your life? I wanted to be a fashion designer, I went to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) for design before I went to beauty school! How...

Olivia Blois Sharpe

This was originally published on DStv.com in February 2015 We had a chat with lovable Jerseylicious cast member Olivia Blois Sharpe ahead of the show's Season 6 premiere on Tuesday, 25 February, at 22:10 on Style. She had a lot to tell us, from what to expect in the new season to how she cringes when she looks back at old episodes. She even gave us her best fashion, beauty and life tips! Here's what she had to say. What can we expect in Season 6 of Jerseylicious? Are there any specific moments during filming that you really enjoyed? In Season 6 of Jerseylicious expect to see a lot of relationships and friendships blossom and fall apart. One thing about being in my mid-20s is I feel like I have trimmed most of my friend fat, leaving me with the people who I have made great connections with and truly care about me and want the...

Locnville

I met up with the talented twin duo, Locnville. Find out what Andrew and Brian Chaplin had to say about their latest album, Taste the Weekend. From fan stories to musical inspo, the guys chat about everything as we chill at Knead Bakery in Sandton City in Johannesburg. ...

Bridgit Mendler

Many of you are aware – or perhaps not, in which case that is sad – of my love for the Disney Channel. From their classic movies to their Original concept shows such as Shake It Up and Jessie, I really cannot get enough of the brand and what they have to offer. One of my favourite shows has to be Good Luck Charlie which stars Hollywood sensation, Bridgit Mendler as the older sister to the adorable title star Charlie (Mia Talerico). Bridgit is everything you expect: looks, talent and personality. At twenty years old she has made a name for herself following in the footsteps of Disney alumni Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. She has a natural presence on-screen and I love her music – I have had Ready or Not and Hurricane on repeat since forever. Have I mentioned that I think her on-screen- and real life – relationship...

Jeannie D

Let's throwback to the time I chatted to Jeannie D just before she went live on SABC3 for the Durban July fashion showcase. She was beyond sweet and recognised me instantly from my work and following me on Twitter. She spoke about plans to interview Justin Bieber and the excitement around it! ...
