Annette Starbuck is taking over Hollywood one cupcake at a time…


(Los Angeles, CA) Annette Starbuck essentially won the “cupcake” lottery when she won “Cupcake Wars” on Food Network this past season. Last week she had the honor of providing cupcakes for Daniel Radcliffe’s new film premiere “The Woman in Black”. Since winning she has been invited as the celebrity chef on shows like The Talk (with co-host Debi Mazar), FOX-TV 11 ‘Wednesday’s Child’, attending Success LA, she will be a celebrity judge at the Cupcake Camp in Santa Barbara, attending and serving at the Chocolate Fashion Show, and the Indulge LA at the Olympic Collection. That is just a few of the recent and upcoming events Annette has been blessed with since winning “Cupcake Wars”. Annette is also preparing to sponsor “A Flavor for Charity” a monthly event hosted by a different celebrity each month at her popular bakery “Goodie Girls”.

More about Goodie Girls:
Annette Starbuck won Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” and the money she won definitely helped make her sweet dreams come true. After winning “Cupcake Wars” she was inspired to open her dream store appropriately titled: “Goodie Girls” at 415 E. Broadway in Glendale. Annette was lucky winner of the premiere episode of the series’ third season, filmed this past spring. She said she was surprised to win because she had been operating an online cupcake business for only eight months when she was picked for the show.

Annette’s display was taken directly over to the Derby’s red-carpet event, where celebrities such as Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo, Salt-N-Pepa, as well as Food Network chefs Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri, enjoyed her delectable creations. Now Annette enjoys spending time in her store and is working with several networks providing food for celebrities on shows, visiting talk shows and celebrity events.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting teams up with celebrities at Barnes & Noble to promote literacy…

May 19, 2011 (Los Angeles, CA) The Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting! Program (RWE) is hosting a reading and literacy event at the Westside Pavilion Barnes & Noble (10850 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064) on June 4th & 7th to promote literacy and to shine a spotlight on how important it is for parents to read with their children. To help ensure this message is heard, we have invited various celebrities to read a book (Dr. Seuss or other) for twenty minutes with one of the children at our event (or to their own children). We hope the celebrity participation will help inspire other parents to undertake this all-so-important activity with their own children. Literacy experts have all stated that if parents read to, and with, their children from a young age, it would solve many of our literacy problems.

RWE is a nonprofit literacy program designed to improve the reading and writing skills of at-risk children. We do this by providing one-to-one writing mentors throughout the school year for kids who are chosen by their teachers to participate. At the end of the school year, the kids get to read one of their stories at a Barnes & Noble, and then watch in special VIP seats as actors perform them for the audience.

The reason for our program is that research shows that if children aren’t writing and reading at their grade level by the end of second grade, they almost never catch up. Further research has also shown that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, are in prison or join gangs. And how accurate are those numbers? Several states actually base their future prison building plans on them! What’s the situation like in Los Angeles? There are over 45,000 second grade students in L.A., and only 41% of them are proficient in writing and reading. Those kids need us.

Event Reading Schedule:
SATURDAY JUNE 4
2:00 – 3:00 PM: Kindergartners and 1st graders read stories
*3:00 – 4:00 PM: The RWE kids have their stories performed by actors.
*4:00 – 5:00 PM: Celebs read a book with one of their kids.

TUESDAY JUNE 7

*5:30 – 6:30 PM: The RWE kids have their stories performed by actors
6:30 – 7:30 PM: 2nd and 3rd graders read stories they’ve written.
7:30 – 8:30PM: 4th and 5th graders read stories they’ve written.

Location: Westside Pavilion Barnes & Noble (10850 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064)

Confirmed Celebrities:
Scott L. Schwartz (Ocean’s 11, 13, 13, The Scorpion King), Sean Kanan (The Young & The Restless, General Hospital), Aura Imbarus (Celebrity book authorPaula Labaredas (The Critic, Showgirl), Nancy La Scala (Species 2, In The Cut), Valery Ortiz (ABC’s Family Lounge), David Fralick (The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde, The Young & The Restless “Larry Warton”), Tommy Hobson (Nickelodeon’s “The Fresh Beat Band”), Tanya Chisholm (Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush”), Catalina Rodriquez (Watch Over Me, Dexter, Cougars), Zach Callison (Hannah Montana, Sophia the Great) etc…

Fast Five Races To TOP of Box Office with $83.6 Million

Official website: http://www.fastfivemovie.com/

Summary:

Fast Five (2011) More at IMDbPro…

Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first. Written by Universal Pictures

FOX News Report:
LOS ANGELES — “Fast Five” has left the competition in the dust with an $83.6 million debut to grab the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Universal Pictures’ fifth movie in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise was by far this year’s biggest opening. Its take was more than double the previous best of $39.2 million for “Rio,” the 20th Century Fox animated hit that slipped to No. 2 with $14.4 million.
The No. 1 movie the two previous weekends, “Rio” raised its total to $103.6 million.

“Fast Five” set a record for best April debut ever, speeding past the $71 million haul of its predecessor, “Fast & Furious,” two years ago.
The movie reteams stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker as outlaw driving aces and adds Dwayne Johnson as a federal agent on their tail. The action expands beyond the franchise’s traditional racing scene into a broad crime romp.

“Summer began April 29,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “This was all about the right decisions we made, from the concept to the task. How this was made, that it’s not just a car-racing movie, but making it into an action-heist movie. … And the marketing that said, ‘This is not the same. This is new. You’re going to love this, and it’s going to open up a whole new world.”‘
The movie gave Hollywood a huge head-start on the summer season, which begins with next weekend’s debut of the Paramount Pictures superhero saga “Thor.”

Overall revenues totaled $155 million, up a whopping 52 percent from the same weekend last year, when “A Nightmare on Elm Street” was No. 1 with $32.9 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com.

It was the third-straight weekend that receipts climbed, lifting Hollywood out of a prolonged downturn that began last fall. Revenues for 2011 were running 20.5 percent behind last year’s just three weeks ago, but the rebound since then has left Hollywood’s business down just 14.2 percent compared with 2010.
“What a difference three weeks can make,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “We get so gloom-and-doom, and appropriately so, but look how quickly we’re turning this around. And we’re on the cusp of the biggest movie-going season of the year.”
“Fast Five” added $81.4 million overseas to bring its worldwide total to $165 million. “Thor” already has opened in many international markets, pulling in $93 million overseas ahead of its U.S. release.

Domestically, the weekend’s other new wide releases tanked. Disney’s teen romance “Prom” debuted at No. 5 with only $5 million, while the Weinstein Co. animated sequel “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil” opened at No. 6 with just $4.1 million.
Freestyle Releasing’s horror comedy “Dylan Dog: Dead of Night,” featuring “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh, debuted far outside the top-10 with a paltry $885,000.

“Dylan Dog” played in narrower release of 875 theaters, averaging $1,011 a cinema, compared with $1,832 in 2,730 theaters for “Prom” and $1,653 in 2,505 cinemas for “Hoodwinked Too.”

“Fast Five” played in 3,644 theaters, averaging a mammoth $22,950 a cinema.
Ten percent, or $8.3 million, of domestic revenues for “Fast Five” came from huge-screen IMAX theaters.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released Monday.
1. “Fast Five,” $83.6 million.
2. “Rio,” $14.4 million.
3. “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family,” $10.1 million.
4. “Water for Elephants,” $9.1 million.
5. “Prom,” $5 million.
6. “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil,” $4.1 million.
7. “Soul Surfer,” $3.3 million.
8. “Insidious,” $2.7 million.
9. “Hop,” $2.6 million.
10. “Source Code,” $2.5 million.
