Natalie Wood : Investigation Still On Going Claims Marti Rulli.

Although the recently re-opened investigation into the tragic death of actress Natalie Wood is still ongoing, the author who sparked it all, Marti Rulli, says she has finally been able to get back to a normal day-to-day in New Jersey. She still thinks about the late actress every day and remains grateful that the shocking events that took place off Catalina Island on Thanksgiving weekend 1981 are finally getting their proper investigative due.

“From everything I know, the case is still alive and very much being investigated,” Rulli tells FishbowlLA via telephone. “It will take the time that the case deserves. I trust that they will not close up this case without interviewing the people who were on board.”

“I don’t know the exact status of the LA County Sheriff’s investigation, or when they’re interviewing the other people involved,” she continues. “What I do know is that they had said they intend to interview everyone who had information about the case.”

Looking back at the frenzy of media attention the re-opening of the case received, Rulli agreed that she was amazed how few people in the media who interviewed her took time beforehand to read the book she wrote with Splendour captain Dennis Davern. The producer of CBS news magazine 48 Hours was an exception to that rule.

Rulli says one of her best media experiences involved A.J. Hammer, host of CNN’s Showbiz Tonight. “I especially enjoyed A.J.’s interview because he approached it in the vein that I believe it should be approached. That Natalie deserves this. He asked pertinent questions and he asked things that some other interviewers did also, but did not air.”

“There are many fine details about this case and A.J., he seemed to catch on to that,” adds Rulli. “He realized the intricate details about the story and he asked about them, how and why this case got re-opened. Which is very important, because just to hear that it’s reopened, a lot of people might believe it doesn’t deserve to be re-opened.”..read more

Whitney Houston Autopsy Report :Whitney Houston's body 'burnt by scalding hot bath and riddled with scars and bruises'


Sad end: Whitney Houston's body was riddled with bruises and cuts according to her autopsy report
Sad end: Whitney Houston's body was riddled with bruises and cuts according to her autopsy report
The autopsy on Whitney Houston's body revealed that large parts of the late singer's skin was burnt off from the scalding hot bath in which she was found.
The shocking report states that she had patches of 'skin slippage' from the hot water burns on several parts of her body.
It is thought that Houston could have been so out of it that she did not realise, or feel, how hot the water was. The bath water was 33°C (93.5°F) six hours after she died, showing how incredibly hot it would have been when she first got into it.
The I Will Always Love You star was found face down and unresponsive in about 13 inches of water on February 11 and passed away at the age of 48.
The startling revelations of how badly damaged her body is an indication as to how much her lifestyle took a toll on her, leading to her untimely death. Some scars were recent - others from years of neglect.
The Los Angeles County Coroner's report shows that the late singer had a perforated septum, likely to be from the large amounts of cocaine she consumed in her lifetime.
Houston also had scars and abrasions on her arms and legs and bruises on her shoulders and head.
There were two scars under Houston's breasts, believed to be from a breast augmentation procedure. It is also thought she had other cosmetic surgeries going by the marks on her stomach and upper thigh.

The Bodyguard star was seen with blood dripping from her legs just a few days before she died after stumbling out of a nightclub in Los Angeles.
The autopsy report also showed that Houston was wearing a 'maxillary dental prosthesis' and had 11 false teeth.
Whitney's body was discovered face down in the bath tub, 'her eyes were congested and there was a bloody purge coming from her nose.'
There was 'superficial abrasions to the left side of her forehead and the bridge of her nose.' She also had cuts on her left arm, hand and shoulder.
It was a sordid end for the award-winning star, and officials insist there were absolutely no signs of foul play.
Tragic: Whitney's death was ruled an accident, with all suggestions of foul play disregarded

The report also confirms details of the drug paraphernalia found among the singer's belongings.
There was a 'spoon with a white crystal-like substance on it' and a 'white powdery substance', which was later tested and determined to be cocaine in the late singer's hotel room.
The report, which gives a detailed description of the state of the Beverly Hilton hotel room when officials arrived, reads: 'Located on the south portion of the counter was a small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper, along with other miscellaneous items.'
Sad details: The report mentioned that Whitney had benign tumours in her uterus and her bath water was still a warm 93.5F six hours after she died

'Located in the top drawer, in the north side of the counter were remnants of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base.' Officials found more white powder on the base of the mirror.
It also reveals the probable cause of death: '[Whitney] possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol.'
The report also notes that when officials discovered the body, Whitney was wearing a brown wig 'tightly attached to the hair.'
The wig was removed revealing a a full head of wavy black hair with 'no balding.'
Narrative: The police detective pieced together exactly what she discovered in the initial aftermath

Houston also had traces of marijuana in her system as well as Xanax (anxiety medication), Flexeril (muscle relaxer) and Benadryl (allergy medication).
The report also describes a plastic bag ripped open with pills spilling out, medication bottles and an ashtray with cigarette butts all over the place.
When the 48-year-old singer's official cause of death was released in March her heart disease was mentioned, but the new detailed report also cites that she had a hole in her septum and that she was suffering from mild emphysema.
Kristy McCracken of the Beverly Hills Police Department also noticed an old needle puncture wound on Houston's inner left elbow.
On the day she died, Whitney Houston complained of a sore throat, so she decided to take a bath in at her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton before getting ready for Clive's party.

IMAGES : James Bond Girls - You Only Age Once

Being a Bond Girl can be a curse. For many, the handle 'former Bond girl' led to a series of insubstantial cameo roles or a date with the plastic surgeon.
That doesn’t stop actresses from clamouring for the role. In Skyfall, out later this year, French actress Berenice Marlohe takes the challenge opposite Daniel Craig. But whether she will live up to her sexy predecessors remains to be seen.
Here, in words and pictures, we reveal what became of them...
Dr No
Dr No: Swiss-born Ursula Andrews
Dr No: Swiss-born Ursula Andress, 76, was original Bond girl Honey Ryder. She wed director John Derek and had affairs with Marlon Brando and James Dean
When she emerged from the sea in Dr No, wearing a white bikini and carrying a conch shell, Ursula Andress defined the Bond girl. She was beautiful, brave and cursed with a sexually suggestive name: Honey Ryder.

Dr No was the first in the Bond franchise, but in 21 films over 50 years, the formula hasn’t changed.
James Bond, Agent 007, is dispatched by MI6 to save the world from an evil mastermind, and in the process encounters a string of lissom girls in bikinis and evening gowns.
The film is likely to end with one of these girls showing her gratitude to Bond in a passionate, physical fashion.

Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, had an uneasy relationship with women: he married late, after decades of committed womanising, and was serially unfaithful to his wife, Ann.
In turn, she humiliated his work in front of her literary friends. But his female characters were rarely weak.
From Russia With Love: Italian beauty queen Daniela Bianchi, now 70, was Russian agent Tatiana Romanova. She retired after marrying a Genoan shipping

Thus, in each of Bond’s film outings there’s usually a female character with a bit of grit, wit and intelligence. She may be a fellow agent (Gemma Arterton as Strawberry Fields in Quantum Of Solace) or a murderous femme fatale (Famke Janssen as the splendidly sadistic Xenia Onatopp in Goldeneye).

In some of the films, however, the character and back-story of the Bond girls gets lost in the casting director’s enthusiasm for tanned flesh and a toned figure.

A low point was the laughably unconvincing casting of Baywatch babe Denise Richards as nuclear physicist Dr Christmas Jones in The World Is Not Enough.
Goldfinger: Honor Blackman, 86, was terrific in her black leather trousers as Pussy Galore. She went on to play Dr Cathy Gale in The Avengers

Only one Bond Girl ever managed to secure Bond’s affections in a meaningful way. In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Bond saves the life of Tracy di Vincenzo (Diana Rigg) the only daughter of  Mafia crime boss Marc-Ange Draco.
They marry, but as they drive off on honeymoon, the new Mrs Bond is shot and killed by the hideous Irma Bunt, Blofeld’s henchwoman.
There was, however, another more constant female presence in Bond’s life. Miss Moneypenny, played in the first 14 films by Lois Maxwell, was secretary to M, head of the Secret Service and Bond’s boss.

Moneypenny was always there at M’s door, ready for a few brief lines of flirtation on his way in and out. In neither the books nor the films was their flirtation consummated, which sets Moneypenny apart from the ranks of Bond girls.
Thunderball: Claudine Auger, 70, was Domino, who was rescued by Sean Connery's Bond. She appeared in a string of minor European films
