12/28/11 at 6:45 PM EST – International entertainer and sex symbol Mayra Veronica has launched Hermosa Escultura, a revolutionary new weight loss product to help women everywhere get the beautifully sculpted body she is famous for. Hermosa Escultura is available exclusively atHermosaEscultura.com.
Cuban American Mayra Veronica, a household name in Hispanic homes, has taken America by storm after moving to Hollywood. While Mayra is known for her voluptuous curves, she felt the pressure to be slim and sexy in Hollywood. “It was becoming more difficult to keep my weight down for my new TV show!” Mayra Veronica lamented. “I have never been one to quit when things get hard. I knew I would either find the perfect diet pill, or make one myself!”
Mayra was frustrated from wasting time trying out all the diet pills on the market with no results and sometimes unpleasant side effects. She decided to make her own weight loss supplement, partnering with businessmen Chris King and Ted Dhanik after hearing about the amazing effects of African Mango on weight loss. Not just another fad, the patented extract of the Irvingia gabonensis seed was backed by solid science, with the average person losing 28 pounds in 10 weeks.
Mayra was impressed by how King’s and Dhanik’s friends and clients had lost weight fast too, without sacrificing their curves or muscle tone. With another TV show just around the corner, Mayra tried out this “miracle” weight loss pill. She was amazed by how her appetite was curbed and the weight came off in just the right places. Her trouble spots were free of jiggle but she still had her gorgeous assets that made her famous.
Mayra knew she had to share her weight loss secret with Hispanic women who didn’t have access to African Mango. “It is so difficult for Latina women to prevent weight gain without sacrificing their curves they love so much. I had to share my simple weight loss secret with Latinas worldwide.”
Hermosa Escultura, named after Mayra Veronica’s beautifully sculpted figure, is the only weight loss supplement on the Hispanic market with powerful patented African Mango extract and available exclusively atHermosaEscultura.com.
The top host and model on the Univision TV network after working on the Don Francisco Presenta Show, Mayra has sold more calendars than any Hispanic celebrity to date and graced the covers of over 100 National and International magazines. She is active in charity, working as a Spokesperson for USO and UNICEF with over 8 worldwide tours performing for American troops. She has broken barriers as the first Cuban American to ring the NASDAQ stock market bell and has been honored as a Speaker at the Presidential Inaugural Ball with Larry King. After branching out into music Mayra reached number three on the Billboard Charts for her single “Freak Like Me,” solidifying her position as one of the most powerful and versatile Hispanic female celebrities.
12/24/11 at 9:34 PM ET – Watch video of Cincinnati Bengals player Jerome Simpson make a leaping flip into the endzone for a touchdown:
Jerome Simpson came out for pregame introductions wearing a Santa hat. During Saturday’s game against Arizona, he provided a present that will be among the top plays of the week, and maybe the season.
During the second quarter, Simpson had a 19-yard touchdown reception from Andy Dalton where he somersaulted over Arizona’s Daryl Washington at the Cardinals 2 and nailed the landing three yards deep in the end zone.
“It was one of things that just came (on) instinct. I just wanted to make a play for my team and get in the end zone,” said Simpson, who had five catches for 42 yards in the 23-16 win over the Cardinals.
“It seemed like he was going to hit me and I didn’t want to get hit, and I used my athletic ability and my jumping ability.”
On second-and-8 at the Cardinals 19 and the Bengals already up 10-0, Simpson, who was lined up on the far right side of the play, ran an underneath crossing route as he came across the middle. He caught it at the 17 and had a large amount of real estate due to Cedric Benson clearing things out when he ran a wheel route.
With Washington bearing down near the goal line, Simpson could not run right as there was traffic near the goal line. Since he couldn’t run left because he was right on the sideline, Simpson took the best available route – in the air.
Simpson has made some leaps during games before, but what made this one stand out is that he stuck the landing in the end zone. Simpson’s left hand briefly hit the turf, which for him prevented it from being a perfect 10.
Said Simpson of the landing: “Yeah, that was one of the key points (of the play), me sticking the landing. I don’t think if I stuck the landing, it wouldn’t have been as exciting. But you know, I stuck the landing like a gymnast. A lot of the guys gave me a (perfect) ‘10’ on it. I think it was like a 9 maybe, because I touched the ground (with my hand) a little bit. But I just wanted to make a great play for my team – you know, have a merry Christmas and just be happy.”
Washington said he thought Simpson was going to jump, but that he didn’t know what to expect, especially with a play in the open field.
“The guy made a great catch and we kind of laughed about it. I told him ‘Don’t be jumpin’ on me like that,’ but he made a great play,” Washington said.
After Saturday’s game, Simpson has 45 receptions for 671 yards and four touchdowns.
