Adrianne Palicki has been breaking hearts ever since she first appeared on NBC’s football drama “Friday Night Lights,” but these days, the Ohio-born actress has been making a name for herself on the big screen with roles in action films like “Red Dawn” and the upcoming “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” as fan favorite Lady Jaye.
Though she’s a far cry from the more butch version of the character we grew up watching on the 1980s animated series, it’s not the first time that Palicki has played an iconic female warrior. Her stint as the title character on David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” reboot may not have made it past the pilot stage, but if early stills from the show are any indication, it’s certainly not because the actress didn’t look the part.
It remains to be seen how her version of Lady Jaye will be received by longtime “G.I. Joe” fans, but we’re digging the updated image, which combines Palicki’s natural beauty with her tough, don’t-mess-with-me personality. In other words, she can kick ass and look good doing it.
I remember about five years ago, one of the horses in the Kentucky Derby caught my attention because of its name. The horse was a 50-1 underdog, so I thought it would be fun to place a bet. Of course I never got around to it, and then I was pretty bummed to see the horse pull out a stunning upset.
A couple of year’s later, I got to attend the race and another long shot pulled off the upset, but this time I of course bet but picked the wrong horse.
Despite these losses, I still look forward to the Kentucky Derby every year. The urge to bet on Kentucky Derby winners is always there, but there’s so much more to the whole experience. I always loved watching it on TV, and I still love watching highlights of iconic horses like Secretariat and Seattle Slew winning the Derby. I remember as a kid when Affirmed beat Alydar, and I’ve been waiting for years for another Triple Crown winner. I was at the Belmont Stakes in 1989 when Sunday Silence was denied the Triple Crown by Easy Goer. Of course, I let my emotions get the better of me as I bet on history happening. Given the very long drought, it’s become an annual tradition as each Kentucky Derby winner is evaluated for the potential of winning the Triple Crown.
But after attending the event, I appreciate the Kentucky Derby mystique even more. You can see above how celebrities love the Derby as well, as lovely ladies like Marisa Miller pick out a sexy hat for the occasion as you can see in the video above. It’s amazing how many beautiful women come out in force over Derby weekend, so there are plenty of ways to enjoy this weekend. You’ll have to try a Mint Julep of course, but frankly I thought the drink was a bit overrated.
If you’re thinking of attending, make sure to book well in advance as this is an annual holiday in Kentucky. The place will be packed, but it’s a very appropriate addition to anyone’s Bucket List.

Kate Upton is everywhere these days, so we weren’t too surprised that SI picked her for their swimsuit issue cover . . . again. Of course that cover image she’s holding up is pretty impressive.
Katherine Webb also leveraged her instant fame bestowed on her by a drooling Brent Musberger during the Alabama National Championship throttling of Notre Dame to get included in this issue as well. Of course she’s also gorgeous and fits in perfectly!
Other models on the red carpet were Cintia Dicker, Jessica Gomes, Julie Henderson, Ariel Meredith, Genevieve Morton, Jessica Perez, Chrissy Teigen, Anne V, Adaora and Nina Agdal as they celebrated the 50th edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue at Marquee Nightclub, with many of them wearing Forevermark Diamonds to the event. Check out some of the pics from the event in the slideshow above.
The beautiful Tanit Phoenix returns as Katrina Banks in “Death Race 3: Inferno,” and she’s just as badass as ever. She has some pretty incredible fight scenes in this third installment of the “Death Race” series and one very hot scene as well.
Bullz-Eye.com was on location in South Africa for the filming of the movie, and senior photographer Paul Miller had the opportunity to talk to this stunning South African actress and model. He also helped the unit photographer set up some of the sexy photos above as well. Tanit has a great sense of humor as you can see in this video, and you’ll definitely want to pick up the Blu-ray/DVD set after watching her interview.
