One of the most prolific TV producers in history, Aaron Spelling passed away last Friday of a stroke at the age of 83. Aaron was responsible for countless TV hits like "Dynasty", "Melrose Place", and "Beverly Hills 90210", only to name a few.
Lynda paid tribute to him: "I am sorry for his passing but he was a force to be reckoned with in this town. He wasn't very big, people quaked in their, you know. And actors were terrified because if they weren't really perfect they were afraid they were just going to get fired. It's like he not going to let any actor that's making a million dollars an episode, give me a break here. He was a realist and I adored him. He was my era, he was before me, during me, he was after me, there was only one like him"
ACCESS HOLLYWOOD Lynda pays tribute to Aaron Spelling.
As we told before, "WONDERLAND" was at the world premiere of Walt Disney’s Pictures "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST" last Saturday. Frank Ewing, our man in the West Coast covered the event and took some great shots. Here's how he described the experience:
"The stars began arriving, and I kept looking for Lynda. I kept looking really closely at brunette women walking by, thinking to myself, 'is that Lynda?' over and over again. Once she actually came around the corner, there was absolutely NO DOUBT that was Lynda! She was more stunning than I even hoped for. It took her awhile to get up to us as she was very generous and accommodating to fans, signing autographs, shaking hands, and saying hello to her fans (of which there were far more than I expected)."
"I was in a group of mostly girls who were there to see Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom. They were very nice to me and cleared the way for me when Lynda came near. I yelled out quite a few times, but it was so loud and crazy that she didn't notice me. Once I yelled out the magic word, "WONDERLAND", that's all it took. Her eyes lit up and she shouted back, "WONDERLAND!". Then she said "Hey baby!" and ran over and gave me a hug. I was in shock! I'm still in wonderland myself! She was SO incredibly nice... just beaming and so excited. She talked to me for a moment while signing some autographs and said what a great site "WONDERLAND" is. I told her she looked amazing! On the video (to be featured soon) you can see and hear her shout "WONDERLAND!!!!"."
"It all happened so quickly and the stars were being moved along by security etc. Lynda continued along the red carpet, signed some Wonder Woman DVD cases, and then a large poster. That was just a few feet down from where I was. Press and people on the carpet very quickly came up to her and crowded around. Before I knew it, she was pretty much lost in the crowd. It was amazing!"
Frank Ewing - West Coast Correspondant
Robert’s video game company, Bethesda Softworks, which has been so very successful in its’ “Elder Scrolls” computer series in which Lynda has voiced many of the female characters, has been chosen to publish and distribute the new video game “Pirates of Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow” tomorrow. Johnny Depp provides his own voice for the title character of Captain Jack. Depp recorded his lines in Los Angeles, and the game was designed there by another company, “7 Studios” under license from Disney’s Buena Vista Games.
The second film in the Walt Disney series, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” premiered at Disneyland on June 24th, and Lynda and Robert and their children attended the festivities. See our story for what happened when Lynda heard that "WONDERLAND" was there!
As expected, Lynda was one of the guests at the world premiere of Walt Disney’s Pictures "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST" yesterday at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Looking stunningly and strikingly beautiful in Valentino black pants and vest with a white long ruffled Spanish sleeves blouse Lynda keenly walked the red carpet and posed for photographers and fans alike. Lynda attended the event once more time with her family, husband Robert, daughter Jessica and her son Jamie.
"WONDERLAND" was at the event and Lynda was happy to se us there! If you pay attention to the first of the photos, Lynda is holding a small bouquet of roses, a little present from "WONDERLAND"! A full report will follow on Monday with our exclusive photos by our man in the West Coast, Frank Ewing!!! Keep tuned for photos and videos of the event.
E! LIVE FROM THE RED CARPET Lynda and her kids are briefly seen in the back, during an interview of E!.
More exciting news!!!! Lynda's back to singing in an official recording!!!!
During July, Lynda will be recording "WHEN YOU'RE GOOD TO MAMA" for a special recording celebrating the 10th Anniversary of "CHICAGO", the musical for which Lynda played Mama Morton at the West End Adelphi Theatre in London by the end of 2005. It's her first official recording since she recorded "SOMEHOW I'LL GO ON" in 1993 for the film "LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE". And her first release since "PORTRAIT".
Also Lynda will be starting to shoot for a new movie during September. Keep tuned for more news about it.
Warner Brothers has announced that "THE DUKES OF HAZZARD", in which Lynda played the unfortunately too brief role of “Pauline”, the love interest of Willie Nelson’s “Uncle Jesse”, will debut on 11 July as the second WB Home Video HD DVD title with the new In-movie Experience feature (IME). IME raises the bar of interactivity, allowing viewers to enjoy new ways of accessing interviews and other material - while the movie is running - to find out more about the filmmaking experience. The IME for "THE DUKES OF HAZZARD" takes you on a trouble-making, car-crashing, barroom brawling in-movie viewing experience.
All bonus materials on the standard definition versions, which in this case, tragically for Lynda and Her many fans, included many of the scenes which Lynda filmed that were left on the cutting-room floor, will be included on the HD DVD version, too. The HD DVD offers resolution 6 times higher than standard DVDs, extraordinary vibrant contrast and color in addition to beautifully crisp sound. There is also a seamless menu-bar that allows viewers to enjoy features and settings without leaving or interrupting the film.
We haven't heard much about the "WONDER WOMAN" movie lately. That's because the writer Joss Whedon, has been busy re-working the script. He's now close to finishing the second draft, and says it's been hard work. Unlike Batman, whereby the superhero already has the best rogues gallery and a great deal of history behind him, there's a lot more to figure out with Wonder Woman. He says he's happy with the second draft but it's been like pulling teeth. Still no news on who will play Wonder Woman and although actress Kate Beckinsale was top of the list, she says the role is not for her.
It has been announced that Lynda’s latest film, KEVIN VANHOOK's "SLAYER", in which she plays a US Army Colonel of military intelligence who send her special team of soldiers into the Latin American jungles to search for vampires that threaten the local inhabitants, will premier on the SCI-FI Channel on Saturday, July 8 at 9:00 P.M. EST, and will be repeated later that evening on July 9 at 01:00 A.M., and also on Thursday, 13 July at 9:00 P.M.
This is Lynda’s first movie of 2006, and in it she’ll be sure to kick some vampire butt !!

Gloria Lane of the Women’s International Center in San Diego has very kindly loaned us the certificate that Lieutenant Governor Cruz M. Bustamante presented our Lynda with when she was made a Living Legacy last May20th at the 23rd Annual WIC Living Legacy Awards of 2006.
We have proudly posted the certificate for all of her fans to see, as a tribute to our lady which honors, to quote from the certificate, her “meaningful contributions to humanity through a variety of causes that you have represented. As a celebrity spokesperson, philanthropist and volunteer, you have generously given of your time and talent to support the mission of the Women's Inter-
national Center and people across the nation.” We certainly agree with the certificate’s last words, “Thank you so much for serving as a role model for others. You have made the world a better place!”
For fans in the Los Angeles area, the world premier of Walt Disney’s Pictures "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST" is scheduled for 24 June on Main Street, USA at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Lynda is one of the invited guests to appear, as well as the film’s stars, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley and many others.
As at the June 2003 premier of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, fans will be allowed to enter the park to see the many celebrities walk the red carpet, which will begin at 5:00 pm on the 24th.
The television tabloid “Access Hollywood” reported today that a direct to DVD “prequel” to last year’s hit film "THE DUKES OF HAZZARD" was being shot. It is supposed to show how Bo and Luke Duke became the notorious moonshine delivering-road runners, how Daisy Duke became the femme fatale of Hazzard County, and how the “General Lee” car was born. The show has Willie Nelson reprising his role of “Uncle Jesse” from last year’s motion picture hit, and a scene was shown being filmed of Jesse christening the “General Lee” with “white lightning”. However it is not known if Lynda will be offered to play the character of “Pauline”, Uncle Jesse’s girlfriend, again.
A charming yet sad excellent short film called "TEMPBOT", made by Neill Blomkamp, has been recently released. The film, made by W+K Entertainment and Spy Films in 2005, is about an experimental robot designed to perform ordinary office jobs and to act as a normal human being, including the way he relates with the opposite sex. Lynda has a special appearance as Mary Alice, his lonely apartment neighbor. Her role, is that of a possible love interest to the protagonist, which results in misunderstanding.
The film is amazingly integrated with outstanding computer graphics, with interface work from the robot’s viewpoint of
his surroundings and those people who he navigates around in the sticky social society of the contemporary cube farm. With a background in visual effects, Neill Blomkamp works with RATEL VFX in Vancouver, and has done other commercials and short features such as “Alive in Joburg” that tend to feature the edge of reality, introducing a virtually acceptable CG element to the films with a cinema-verité, documentary flavor. Expect to see more of his outstanding work in the future!

It's very hard for us to believe, and no doubt doubly so for them, but Lynda and Robert’s son James, affectionately known as “Wonderboy” to his 85 fellow classmates, has graduated from The Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland in a ceremony held at the Pielage Amphitheatre. No doubt Lynda and Robert are thinking of the day when Jamie was born, and how they beamed when they saw the small bundle placed in their arms. But their loving, happy family home life, which has endured through both good times and bad, has been a good influence on James who has grown tall and handsome, and has resulted in a son of which they can be highly proud and will make his mark in the future as he leaves in the fall to start his college education at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Congratulations!!!!
Don’t be sad, Lynda and Robert, you’re not losing a son, you’re gaining another of your original 16 bathrooms back!
Lynda was the guest speaker at the graduation of the class of 2006 of Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School last night at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC.
Looking at the young, hopeful glowing faces of the seniors in the audience before her, Lynda spoke of how they should strive to fulfill their hopes and dreams, and make this country and this world a better place for the rest of us, and for those who will come after them. No doubt her words echoed her own thoughts about her son James, who is due to graduate this summer from the Landon School in Bethesda.
Lynda began her first-ever commencement address by quoting Paul Simon's "KODACHROME": "When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all." The line got laughs, but Lynda's intention was to break the ice by contrasting her own High School experience which was more based on show business than studies. "These things tend to be so formal, so I thought it would get a laugh and get everybody in a good mood. It was totally tongue-in-cheek" said Lynda. "It wasn't quite what one expected at a high school graduation," reflected BCC PTSA President Carole Brand.
Lynda used her own life experience to illustrate the graduates with 10 life reasons, among them "Life is a journey, not a destination", "Dare to dream", "Serve others" and "Attitude is everything".
"If students take them to heart, they would serve them well," Brand concluded.

The popular video game rated suitable for teenagers, which was made by Bethesda Software and has Lynda as one of the voices of the characters, is making some parents angry. Take Two, the publisher of the game, has recently acknowledged that some users can change the game to make it racier. Users of the game for personal computers ONLY can download a file to make the female characters appear topless. When news surfaced about the alternative version of "OBLIVION", the Entertainment Software Rating Board changed the game’s rating from T for Teen to M for Mature, unsuitable for those under 17. Nearly two million copies of the game have been sold so far!
The good news is that the X-Box version of the game cannot be changed!

Our Lady has had a busy weekend. On Saturday She jetted out to San Diego to receive the Living Legacy Award from the Woman’s International Center, and then hurried back home so she could pack and fly up to New York City for the American Ballet Theatre’s 66th Annual Spring Gala Arts, Culture and Entertainment Dance on Monday, 22 May.
Heads’ turned from all directions to Lynda as she entered in a gorgeous full length bluish-purple low cut dress that set off her beautiful figure, with gathered feathers at her upper arms, her lustrous dark chestnut hair flowing over her white shoulders. It could be said that the Belle of Washington Town’s beauty broke many a heart in the Big Apple that evening!
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT Lynda is interviewed by ET while attending the gala.
Lynda was among 10 extraordinary women and men who received the Woman’s International Center Living Legacy Award Saturday evening in San Diego at the 23 Annual WIC Living Legacy Awards Show.
Clad in her favorite sheer black corsettted gown with fur shoulders, right out of “Gone With The Wind”, her dark chestnut tressed flowing over her shoulders, our Beautiful version of Scarlett joined the other awardees, and even danced with them for a minute or two out of sheer delight and enjoyment. And beaming at his beautiful daughter out of sheer fatherly pride and love was Lynda’s father, Colby Carter!
Very special thanks to Gloria Lane, Founder, President of WIC and the LLA, for her kindess with us and Lynda!!!!!

It is with sadness that we belatedly report the death of Robert’s beloved sister and Lynda’s sister in law Janet Altman Spragens, who died of cancer at 62 on 19 February, 2006. Janet was a lifelong resident of Washington DC and a professor at American University’s Washington College of Law for 33 years. She is survived by Robert, her sisters Nancy and Susan, their mother Sophie, and her daughters Robin Spragens Trepanier and Lee Spragens. Her marriage to Lee Spragens ended in divorce. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Robert and his family and nieces.
Born in Washington into a family of lawyers, Janet considered becoming a teacher before deciding to continue her career as a lawyer who taught. She received a bachelors’ degree from Wellesley College in 1964 and a masters’ degree in education from Northwestern University in 1965, where, as a student teacher she taught future Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, then a high school senior. She received a law degree from George Washington Uni-
versity Law School in 1968. In law school Janet developed an expertise in tax law, and she used that expertise to benefit the nation’s undeserved taxpayers by advocating for them in Congress, and in 1990, founded the Federal Tax Clinic. The clinic continues to operate today and the American Bar Association Tax Section calls it one of the earliest and successful low-income taxpayer clinics in the country. The success had spawned others at law schools across the nation.
Janet was also concerned about the unethical tax preparers who prey on low-income taxpayers and about the complexities of the earned income tax credit, which is designed to help the working poor. She served as executive director of the American Tax Policy Institute from 1996 to 2001, was a member of the council for the ABA section on taxation since 1999, and had chaired the section’s low-income taxpayer and teaching taxation committees, even using an episode of the television series “The West Wing” (one of Lynda’s favorites) that dealt with those issues in class, though not before writing the show’s producers, politely noting some details that they got wrong. In the finale of “The West Wing” that aired 14 May, a tribute was even included to Janet as a gift from a show producer who is a family friend. “It was one of Mom’s favorite shows” said daughter Lee. “The fact that it aired on Mother’s Day meant a lot.”
When Robert was embroiled in the BCCI scandal in 1992, Janet and her sisters’ Susan and Nancy and their mother, Sophie, went all out in Robert’s defense, telephoning reporters and editors from most major news organizations and handing out packets of information challenging the prosecution’s claims. Janet also wrote two editorials for the Wall Street Journal and appeared on ABC’s “Nightline” to defend her brother. No doubt she felt immense satisfaction when he was acquitted successfully in 1993.
Our Lady is amongst the 58 prominent women featured in profiles and portraits in a just published tome by Ilene Leventhal, Francine Levinson and Clay Blackmore called "Extraordinary Women: Fantasies Revealed", by the publishing company Stewart, Tabori and Chang.
Inside the 144 page coffee table book 58 women of accomplishment portray hidden dreams and real hopes. Each of the 58 women in this insightful book were asked what they dreamed of becoming when they were children; they were then photographed in that role. Thus, our Lynda is seen as an Olympic champion (very fitting!), former Secretary of State Madeline Albright can be seen as a chess champion, feminist Betty Freidan as a mystery writer, actress Debbie Allen as an American Indian, gymnast Dominic Dawes as a justice of the supreme court, and on and on.
The fantasy of Lynda is to run faster and jump higher than anyone else in the world – to win an Olympic gold medal in track and field. “I love athletics. I’ve known several elite athletes, and the dedication it takes to get to that elite level is really amazing to me. And after all that, often it comes down to a mental toughness, to the way they approach their event. When the differences are measured in milliseconds, what makes you the one to run faster that day?” says Lynda.
The book is composed of full page color photos and a page devoted to their fantasies. "Extraordinary Women: Fantasies Revealed" is an original and inspirational testament to women who helped changed our world in ways that they themselves could have never dreamed possible. Proceed of the sale of the book will also benefit the Hand to Hand Eviction Prevention Program and the Metropolitan Police Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, DC, and can be ordered from Amazon.com or found in your local bookstore.
The last episode of the Cartoon Network series "Justice League Unlimited", "Destroyer", was shown last Saturday. This is very sad news, because now there is no longer any fresh portrayal of Wonder Woman on television, only reruns.
The episode was the second of a two-parter, where in the first episode, "Alive", super criminal Lex Luthor took his “secret society” of super villains to the outer reaches of the galaxy to search for remains of Brainiac, who was destroyed earlier in the series. Instead, he revived the monster Darkseid, who with his vast evil minions moved against earth to destroy it and then proceed to search to his ultimate goal, the anti-life equation. Lex and his “secret society” approached the "Justice League Unlimited" members to propose a truce while they banded together to fight off Darkseid. Whilst his giant machines began bore into the earth in all continents to turn it into another destroyed world like his own and his followers attacked the superheroes and criminals, Darkseid sought out Superman to destroy him.
Banded together in teams of good and evil like Wonder Woman and Toyman, Bizarro and Hawkgirl, and Star Sapphire and the Flash, they made short work of their opposition and began to destroy the boring machines, though not without suffering injuries to themselves. But Darkseid, outfought by Superman, managed to encase him in a pain enclosure that sapped his strength and then approached him with a knife of kryptonite to finish him off. Lex Luthor, who had persuaded Mentor to help him, appeared from the fabled “Source Wall” and offered the anti-life equation to Darkseid, who accepted it, and it destroyed them both.
Leaderless, the forces of Darkseid retreated, and the combined forces were victorious. But they were still enemies! Wonder Woman suggested placing them all in a holding cell, but, realizing that they had helped save the world, Batman uncharacteristically offered them a 5 minute head start instead. And as the members of the secret society fled, the “Justice League Unlimited” began their pursuit into cartoon history. But fittingly it was our beautiful Wonder Woman, Princess of Themyscira, who had the last words for her beloved League; “And the adventure…continues!”
He begun his career right after graduation with DC Comics, then he got fully evolved into film business and became not only as writer and producer but also as actor and director. He's KEVIN VANHOOK, the multitalented director of "SLAYER", Lynda's latest movie. And you can enjoy an exclusive interview with him which reveals more about the movie and the future DVD release. Soon we'll future more news about the movie, plus a trailer and more!!! THANKS KEVIN!!!!

News has come in that apparently, Joss Whedon the writer of the new "WONDER WOMAN" film is going to avoid using any of the classic Wonder Woman villains in his new story, introducing new baddies instead. He's also admitted to struggling more with this script than anything else he's written in the past, so much so, the studio has asked him to do quite a lot of re-writing. There's still no news on who will play Wonder Woman.
The latest issue of "People" magazine is a special “double issue” containing 100 of the world’s most beautiful men and women, and for the second time in 2 years, Lynda is amongst them (which is only to be expected; Lynda is still a very beautiful woman at 54!) But this time, she is joined by another member of the Carter/Altman family: her beautiful 15 year-old daughter Jessica!
In a section entitled “Mothers and Daughters” Lynda and Jess are third amongst such others as Glenn Close and her daughter Annie Starke, Vanessa Williams and her daughters Melanie and Jillian Hervey and Sasha Fox, and Christie Brinkley and her daughters Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Cook.
Jessica is a ninth grader at an all-girls school where Lynda fondly says “she’s a science and math nerd.” Jessica say’s her favorite thing about her mother are her eyes. “My eyes are blue-green, not as blue as my Mom’s. But I have her hands, and her legs, and my
mom is a lot of fun. My friends love her.” Lynda replies “Jessie was born with a sunny personality, and she has a very twinkley smile. She’s the most fascinating girl-woman I know. She also has a mane, it’s 50 times thicker than mine, it’s my favorite thing about her.”
The "Women's International Center's 23rd Annual Living Legacy Awards" will be given to Lynda and to 9 other wondrous women and extraordinary two men on the evening of 20 May, 2006. The always memorable and inspiring Living Legacy Awards will be given at the Joan Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego, California.
This year the many positive and enduring contributions of women of Latin Heritage will be acknowledged. The 2006 presentations will be dedicated to legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and to the victims and survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
Lynda will head the living legacy honorees as a multi-talented singer, actress, spokesperson and activist for women’s health. She will be joined by Kathi Diamant, Ronne Froman, Bridgette McDonald, Jenni Prisk, Yolanda Walther-Meade, Jean Colurusso, David Perez, Robert Rector and Claudia DaMetz.

"The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion", the latest entry in Bethesda Software’s 12 year old game franchise, has zoomed to the top of the sales charts. Released last month with the voices of LYNDA CARTER and other actors, such as Patrick Stewart, today it fights it out with Electronic Art’s new “Godfather” game for Number One status.
With over 1.7 million games shipped so far, "Oblivion" is also one of the most positively reviewed games in the short history of Microsoft’s new game console.
The main storyline in "Oblivion" has to do with an emperor who dies in a fantasy-world kingdom called “Tamriel”, leaving no known
heir. Thanks to that power vacuum, a sinister parallel world is starting to break through at a series of stone gates across the land that connect to a fiery dimension called "Oblivion".
Although it is a basic, timeless dungeons and dragons story, Bethesda raises the stakes for the genre a few notches with slick graphics, a nice orchestra score, plus top-notch voices like Lynda and Patrick and over 16 square miles of virtual turf, packed with towns, dungeons and castles.
You can watch a video clip from the game here:
THE MAKING OF OBLIVION Documentary.
The producers of the new "WONDER WOMAN" film are being urged by Hollywood supremo RON SAMUELS to find the next LYNDA CARTER. Ron Samuels discovered the then "unknown" Lynda and put her name forward to play the original "WONDER WOMAN". Following a romance they then married. He's now offering some timely advice to Joel Silver and the big names behind the much anticipated film to find someone new.
So far, he's un-impressed with any of the actresses suggested to play the lead role, and he thinks that the film would be a flop if the producers tried to turn a well known actress into a superheroine. He says, "You have to go out and find the unknown who has all the qualities of Wonder Woman. That's what they did with Lynda Carter -- she was Wonder Woman".
Meanwhile film director Joss Whedon has finally come to his senses and is considering casting the original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter into the remake of the 70's hit show, according to an interview he made a couple of weeks ago. Originally he refused to consider the 54 year old actress, but has decided that "if it's right for the movie, then it might just happen!"
