Chiar a lovit Basescu un copil?

După apariţia imaginilor in care preşedintele Traian Băsescu, aparent, loveşte un copil, s-a iscat un adevărat scandal, iar reacţiile nu au întârziat să apară.

Purtătorul de cuvânt al şefului statului susţine că acele secvenţe "sunt serios şi deliberat trucate", materialul video fiind "contrafăcut cu unicul scop de a-l lovi pe Băsescu în cursa pentru a obţine al doilea mandat".

De asemenea, Theodor Stolojan, a declarat că ar fi bucuros ca o expertiză să stabilească adevărul în privinţa filmului, pentru că în opinia sa este doar o manipulare.

"După părerea mea, este o intoxicare incredibillă făcută de aceşti domni, care doresc reîntoarcerea României în mâinile celor care au stăpânit-o în perioada 2001-2004 ", a spus Stolojan.

Pe de altă parte, Adrian Năstase susţine, pe blogul personal, că în imaginile respective se vede clar care este caracterul preşedintelui şi că aceasta este "o răzbunare a istoriei."

"Am văzut, în seara asta, adevăratul caracter al lui Băsescu. Nu mi-a venit să cred. Auzisem despre episodul ăsta, din alegerile prezidenţiale şi parlamentare din 2004, dar atunci când vezi e groaznic", scrie Năstase.

Mai mult, Dinu Patriciu a declarat că Traian Băsescu l-a lovit de două ori pe copil şi că este foarte bucuros că această înregistrare s-a făcut publică.

"Eu eram în stânga domnului Băsescu. Alături de mine se mai aflau câteva persoane care au mai văzut această scenă", a declarat Dinu Patriciu la RTV.


Ana Ghiţă, femeia care vorbea cu şeful statului în momentul în care se presupune că acesta l-ar fi lovit pe băiatul din imagini, susţine că era imposibil ca Băsescu să-l atingă pe copil.

"Nu l-a lovit pe copilul acela, pentru că nu avea cum să ajungă la el. Abia am reuşit să ajung eu ridicându-mă pe vârfuri", a declarat pentru Antena 3 femeia care îi cerea ajutorul lui Traian Băsescu în acel material video.

De asemenea, Ana Ghiţă spune că băiatul nu vorbea cu peşedintele în acel moment, ci îi adresa ei cuvinte urâte.

Marius Istrăţoiu a declarat publicatiei citate: „Vă confirm că eu sunt cel din imagini. Este o chestiune din trecut care nu m-a afectat nici atunci, nici acum. Aveam 10 ani, iniţial d-l preşedinte mă luase pe scenă şi am vrut să spun ceva legat de Iliescu şi Năstase şi probabil de emoţii am spus că Iliescu şi Băsescu nu sunt buni sau ceva de genul, apoi d-l preşedinte m-a dat jos de pe scenă. S-a enervat că spusesem o prostie şi când m-am dus lângă dânsul voiam să-mi cer scuze, dar m-a împins. Chiar am râs, nu a fost ceva care m-a marcat”.

Adi Minune a făcut petrecere mare vineri seara, cu ocazia deschiderii oficiale a restaurantului “Cascada”, situat în comuna Ştefăneşti, judeţul Ilfov şi în care a investit 300.000 de euro.


De la eveniment nu au lipsit Sorinel Copilul de Aur, Ionică Minune sau Dan Bursuc, buni prieteni ai artistului, care, de altfel, vor concerta de joi până duminică în acest local. Vedeta serii a fost Mariana Roşca, alias “Blonda lui Iri”, care s-a declarat fan al lui Minune.


Mai mult, frumoasa ieşeancă, ce nu avea până acum nici un gând să se apuce de cântat, ne-a mărturisit că ar accepta oricând să facă acest pas alături de manelist. “Nu mi-a trecut nicicând prin cap să mă apuc de cântat, însă mi-au plăcut atât de mult Adi Minune şi localul său, încât aş acceptat oricând să fac o piesă cu el”, ne-a declarat vedeta, care ne-a mai spus că va fi nelipsită de la petrecerile organiza- te de Minune la “Cascada”.

Andreea Mantea are probleme cu Ţîrdea




Andreea Mantea şi iubitul ei, Andrei Ţîrdea, trec prin cele mai dificile momente de când s-au cunoscut.


Fostul iepuraş Playboy luptă din răsputeri să nu fie eliminată de la "Dansez pentru tine", iar tânărul afacerist a fost obligat de judecători să meargă la IML pentru efectuarea testului de paternitate.

Mai mult, din sălile de judecată, fosta soţie a lui Ţîrdea, Alexandra, o avertizează pe femeia care i-a "furat" bărbatul: "Nu face copii cu Ţîrdea!".


Nenorocirile se ţin scai de perechea Mantea-Ţîrdea. După problemele "iepuraşului" cu emisiunea de la TVR şi dificultăţile financiare ale iubitului său care a fost obligat să renunţe la două maşini de lux, cuplul continuă să se "afirme" prin probleme.

Iubitul frumoasei brunete, Andrei Ţîrdea, a fost obligat, ieri, de instanţă să meargă la IML pentru efectuarea testului de paternitate. Decizia a fost luată după ce Andrei Ţîrdea nu s-a prezentat nici la termenul de ieri al procesului.

Astfel, Ţîrdea, fosta soţie şi fetiţa lor vor trebui să efectueze testul ADN săptămâna viitoare. "Sunt dezamăgită de comportamentul lui, dar nu se poate schimba. Sper ca Mantea să fie mai inteligentă ca mine şi ca fosta iubită a lui Andrei şi să nu-i facă copii", ne-a declarat Alexandra Ţîrdea.

Foştii soţi se vor întâlni miercuri, la Tribunalul Bucureşti, fiul controversatului afacerist Petre Paul Ţîrdea vrând să-i ia fostului model numele dobândit în urma căsătoriei.


Andrei Ţîrdea a fost forţat de Mantea să-i demonstreze că cel de-al doilea copil nu este al său. În caz contrar, fostul iepuraş Playboy a spus apropiaţilor că va renunţa la Andrei dacă testul va fi pozitiv.

Deşi el a fost cel care a deschis procesul de paternitate, Ţîrdea a evitat să ajungă în faţa medicilor din două motive. Nu a avut bani să plătească testul şi a mizat pe faptul că, odată cu trecerea timpului, vedeta tv îl va ierta indiferent de rezultat.

Daniela Crudu maestru de ceremonii





Vecina de la Neatza cu Razvan si Dani face atmosfera in cluburi si discoteci pe bani multi. In timp ce MC-ii profesionisti se multumesc cu cateva milioane de lei vechi, bruneta vrea 600 de euro pentru un program de trei ore.

Cu toate ca nu se claseaza pe locul intai in topul organizatorilor de petreceri, Daniela Crudu are cel mai mare tarif ca MC (n.r. - maestru de ceremonii) printre colegele ei de breasla si, de cele mai multe ori, nu este negociabil. Pretul brunetei a crescut proportional cu popularitatea capatata in calitate de asistenta in cadrul matinalului de la Antena 1, in ciuda faptului ca, la baza, ea este animatoare.

Tocmai aceasta activitate inceputa inaintea televiziunii i-a deschis usile cluburilor din Capitala si provincie, mai ales ca i s-a dus vestea ca este extrem de dezinhibata si renunta usor la haine de dragul petrecerii. Atmosfera se incinge prin simpla ei prezenta, aceasta nemaifiind nevoita sa depuna prea mult efort pentru a ridica lumea la dans. Iar pentru trei ore petrecute in club cere 600 de euro.

Gina Pistol face atmosfera pe 500 de euro pe luna desi popularitatea ei este mult mai mare decat a Danielei. Aceasta insa nu este activitatea principala a blondei. Cele mai multe contracte ale Ginei vin din lumea modellingului.

Cosmina Pasarin negociaza si sub 400 de euro pe luna

Ea a fost desemnata de organizatorii de petreceri singura femeie MC din Romania. De cand s-a lasat de televiziune, bruneta s-a axat pe acest gen de activitate. Petrecerile ei devin incendiare. Cosmina canta, danseaza, striga si nu tine niciodata cont daca depaseste programul. Importanta e atmosfera. Si, cu toate acestea, accepta si onorarii mai mici de 400 de euro.

Oana Zavoranu si Ana Maria Prodan sunt mai rivale




Altadata prietene, Oana Zavoranu si Ana Maria Prodan sunt mai nou rivale. Bruneta i-a declarat razboi dupa ce Ana i-a cerut 500 de euro ca sa vina in emisiunea sa, insa dupa ce a permis reporterilor Oanei sa filmeze in casa la aniversarea lui Reghecampf.

Se pare ca Zavoranu a oprit reportajul de la difuzare. Prezenta in emisiune lui Bahmuteanu, Prodanca a avut o confruntare cu Oana, la telefon, aceasta din urma acuzand-o ca vrea sa-si faca publicitate prin scandal.

Zavoranca o ataca iar pe Monica Columbeanu




Deşi toată lumea credea că scandalul dintre Oana Zăvoranu şi Monica Columbeanu s-a încheiat şi că securea a fost îngropată de amândouă, iată că lucrurile nu stau tocmai aşa. Răzbunarea se dovedeşte dulce.

Aflată la început de nouă emisiune şi în căutarea ratingului mult râvnit, partenera de viaţă a lui Pepe a făcut dezvăluiri bombă. Dinu Damaschin, protectorul Monicăi pe când era o tânără neliniştită în Bacău, ar fi de fapt tătăl actualei doamnei Columbeanu.

Această informaţie i-a fost confirmată chiar de Monica, pe când era adolescentă. „Eram într-un club, când a venit şi mi-a spus că e fiica mea. Mi-a zis că ştie de la maică-sa. Se lăuda tuturor că e fata mea, iar acest lucru a scos-o din multe belele. Apoi, cu câteva săptămâni înainte de nunta cu Irinel, Veronica a venit la mine şi mi-a spus: «Dinule, să ştii că fata ta se mărită»”, a continuat Damaschin dezvăluirile.

Totodată, fostul protector a afirmat că tatăl din acte al Monicăi ar fi steril şi că nici surorile divei, Ramona şi Alina, nu ar fi fetele lui. Declaraţiile incendiare nu s-au oprit aici însă. Damaschin susţine că nici Irina nu ar fi copilul lui Irinel Columbeanu, ci fiica lui Alexandru Gavril, bărbatul acuzat că şi-ar fi ucis fetiţa. Monica a fost iubita lui George Gavril, dar mai târziu s-ar fi culcat şi cu fratele acestuia, Alexandru, pretinde Damaschin.

Cum va reacţiona doamna Columbeanu la noile dezvăluiri, cu siguranţă vom afla cât de curând. Până atunci însă, Paradisul Cenuşăresei de Bacău a fost din nou zguduit din temelii. Oare câte secrete au rămas nedezvăluite?

Daniela Crudu dependenta




Asistenta lui Razvan si Dani a devenit o clienta fidela a saloanelor de bronzat, pe care le frecventeaza din doua in doua saptamani. Dornica sa obtina un ten masliniu, bruneta se expune la razele ultraviolete in jur de 15 minute, desi e la curent cu riscurile produse de bronzul artificial. Daca e sa mor... mor si cand traversez sa-mi iau o punga de seminte, le-a marturisit ea unor prietene. Vedeta Antenei 1 face pauza de solar doar in lunile de vara.

Teo Trandafir revine pe ecrane




Vedeta va realiza dupa zece luni de pauza un nou proiect de televiziune in cadrul unui post unde va ocupa si o functie de conducere.


La aproape un an dupa ce a demisionat de la Prima TV, refuzand sa lucreze fara echipa sa de productie, careia nu i-a mai fost prelungit contractul de colaborare, Teo se pregateste pentru o noua provocare in televiziune.

Informatia aparuta la inceputul saptamanii preciza ca este vorba despre un proiect revolutionar, mai ales datorita schimbarii de atitudine abordate de Teo in timpul emisiunii sale, insa pana in prezent nu se cunoaste numele postului TV in cadrul careia va fi difuzata aceasta productie.

 Teo Trandafir, care are in prezent trei joburi, a refuzat sa dezvaluie numele trustului, sau postului cu care a semnat, precizand doar ca in cadrul acestuia va avea si o functie de conducere. Nici nu confirm, nici nu infirm. Va spun doar ca de acum incolo nu o sa mai am sefi, o sa fac ce vreau si cand vreau. Momentan o sa am o emisiune saptamanala, un format care, daca prinde poate sa intre si zilnic, a declarat Teo. Mai mult, aceasta a demontat pe loc, prin declaratii acide, zvonul revenirii sale in trustul Intact. Exclus! O televiziune care l-a dat afara pe Mircea Radu si intr-un singur an i-a pierdut pe cei de "Divertis" si pe Raduleasca, nu prezinta incredere. O sa aflati unde ma duc, aveti putintica rabdare pana joi la conferinta de presa pe care o vom organiza la Hilton, a adaugat ea.

Andreea Mantea la Dansez pentru Tine




Ramasa fara emisiune la TVR 2, bruneta a primit o oferta tentanta din partea Pro TV-ului.

Andreea Mantea a reusit performanta de a schimba trei joburi intr-un singur an. Dupa ce emisiunea Din Dragoste a fost scoasa din grila Antenei 1, fostul iepuras Playboy nu a avut prea mult noroc nici la TVR 2, unde Tombola castigatorilor a fost suspendata dupa doar doua luni de emisie. Libera de contract, Andreea Mantea nu a stat pe ganduri si a batut palma imediat cu Pro TV, pentru noul sezon Dansez pentru tine, unde se va regasi in postura de concurenta. De saptamana viitoare, ea va intra in cantonament la Buftea, unde se va pune la punct cu numeroase stiluri de dans.

Dani Otil nu are masina




Dupa ce a returnat autoturismul de teren obtinut in baza unui contract de imagine, terminat in urma cu cateva saptamani, Dani nu mai are cu ce sa plece la drum lung.


Pentru ca statutul de vedeta TV ii permite sa incheie contracte de imagine pentru masini gratis, Dani nu s-a grabit sa-si cumpere una personala. Nu s-a gandit insa ca negocierea unor astfel de intelegeri ar putea dura si l-ar lasa descoperit pana cand ar intra in posesia unui alt autoturism. Iar acest lucru s-a si intamplat. Otil a inapoiat autoturismul de teren pe care l-a condus sezonul trecut si, de cateva saptamani, cauta altul. Pana atunci, se vede nevoit sa apeleze la bunavointa prietenilor pentru a putea iesi din Bucuresti, asta, in ciuda faptului ca are patru motociclete.

Marcel Pavel bea noaptea cafea cu Lavinia



Cântăreţul este acuzat că are o idilă cu fosta membră a trupei Spicy, Lavinia. Informaţia a apărut după ce artistul a fost zărit în preajma locuinţei brunetei la ore târzii.

Marcel Pavel şi-a explicat vizitele în apartamentul Lavinei susţinând că o ajută pe aceasta să-şi care bagajele sau că mai profită de timpul liber şi beau împreună câte o cafea, ca între colegi.

„Sunt coleg cu Lavinia de şapte ani. Când plecăm de la concerte, o duc acasă. O ajut să-şi care bagajele, doar nu pot s-o las singură. Mai ales dacă ajungem târziu, o ajut eu să-şi urce bagajele în apartament. Noaptea mai beau câte o cafea cu Lavinia. Dar nu suntem doar noi doi, uneori mai rămân şi dansatoarele ei”, a declarat Marcel Pavel pentru „ring”. Soţia artistului, Violeta, îi ţine partea acestuia, mergând pe încredere. „Soţia mea a început să râdă când a auzit”, a spus Marcel.

Catrinel Menghia si Lancia



Supermodelul Catrinel Menghia a lăsat pentru puţin timp podiumul, apariţiile în reviste şi ţinutele luxoase pentru a poza pe „capota” primului iaht din istoria companiei italiene Lancia.

Valea Izei



Satul Vadu Izei, cunoscut pentru meşteşugarii săi şi pentru sculptura în lemn, se află la unirea a două râuri importante, Iza şi Mara, la aproape 7 km sud de Sighetu Marmaţiei. Populată încă din Epoca de bronz, dovadă stând brăţările şi monezile din argint, satul este atestat prima dată în 1383, cu numele Satul lui Lupu. Acum, nu este doar unirea celor două drumuri aici, ci şi unirea a două drumuri importante, DN 18 cu DJ 186, care oferă o importanţă notabilă satului.

În Vadu Izei există pictori care fac icoane pe sticlă, precum Ioan Borlean; ţesători precum Maria Moldovan şi Ileana Borlean, persoane care fac pături sau covoare cu lână vegetală vopsită; şi oameni care fac coşuri împletite, precum Mihai Petreuş, care face coşuri minunate şi alte obiecte folosind răchită şi alun. De asemenea, există în zonă numeroşi muzicanţi şi cântăreţi, iar oamenii din Vadu Izei nu sunt numiţi dobaşi degeaba.

În concordanţă cu acestea, în fiecare an în iulie, există Festivalul Nuntilor. Grupuri de cântăreţi populari şi dansatori vin din toată zona Maramureşului, din alte părţi ale României şi chiar din străinătate, pentru a interpreta cântece sau dansuri legate de nunta tradiţională.
Există un mic muzeu, Casa memorială a lui Vasile Kazar, lângă noua biserică Greco-Catolică. Aceasta este o gospodărie din secolul al XVIII-lea, cu obiecte vechi şi textile, care arată cum vieţile sătenilor continuă pe aceeaşi linie.

În afară de pensiunile bine stabilite, există şi un punct de informaţii pentru turişti, lângă primărie şi poştă. De aici se pot cumpăra hărţi şi cărţi despre regiune, diverse obiecte de artizanat (icoane, olărie, costume, măşti, etc.) sau se poate angaja un ghid local pentru turul satelor din apropierea văilor râurilor.

Următorul sat de după Vadu Izei, la 5 km în sus spre valea Izei, este Onceşti cu 1,500 de locuitori. Mai multe descoperiri arheologice demonstrează continuitatea aşezării din timpurile preistorice: unelte, bijuterii şi săbii medievale. Satul obişnuia să aibă o biserică frumaosă, din lemn, care este acum la Muzeul Satului, din Sighetu Marmaţiei.

Bârsana este o comună mare, de aproape 5.000 de locuitori, aflat pe malul drept al Izei, la aproape 20 km sud-est de Sighetu Marmaţiei. În afară de drumul principal DJ 186, care urcă pe valea Izei, DJ 185 leagă satul de Ocna Şugatag şi valea Cosău.

Bârsana este unul dintre satele cele mai cunoscute din Maramureş datorită mănăstirii construite destul de recent, care a devenit simbolul Maramureşului şi al arhitecturii din lemn. Mai mult decât atât, aceasta există şi biserica veche din lemn a satului, Intrarea Maicii Domnului în biserică, construită în 1720 ca biserica mănăstirii, care se află pe Lista Moştenirilor Mondiale a UNESCO.

Poienile Izei se află la maxim 4 km distanţă de Glod, spre Botiza şi Şieu; satul este înconjurat de cărările de pe munţii Lăpuş. Este un sat de aproape 1,100 de locuitori cu puternice tradiţii.

Rozavlea este un sat cu peste 4,000 de locuitori, pe partea dreaptă a râului Iza, la 7 km în contra curentului de Strâmtura, şi la cam 37 km de sud-vest de Sighetu Marmaţiei via DJ 186. Cele mai vechi descoperiri sunt din Epoca de Piatră, deşi atestările scrise datează din 1353.

În fiecare an la sfârşitul lui august, se sărbătoresc Zilele Culturale ale Rozei Rozalina, prilej cu care se adună grupuri folclorice care vin din diferite părţi ale regiunii şi ale ţării. Tot atunci, tradiţiile maramureşului sunt discutate în cadrul unui simpozion.

Elena Udrea susține "the land of choice"

Ministerul Turismului va continua să susţină imnul turistic al României şi va intensifica acţiunile de promovare a acestuia, chiar dacă la OSIM există mai multe cereri de înregistrare ca marcă a sintagmei "the land of choice", a declarat agenţiei MEDIAFAX ministrul Turismului, Elena Udrea.

"«The land of choice» este un vers din imnul turistic al României. Ministerul Turismului a folosit această sintagmă încă de la mijlocul lunii aprilie, în campania de lansare a respectivului imn", a spus Udrea.

La Oficiul de Stat pentru Invenţii şi Mărci (OSIM) există mai multe cereri de înregistrare ca marcă a sintagmei "the land of choice" sau a unor variaţiuni ale acesteia.

Pentru înregistrarea ca marcă a expresiei "the land of choice" a fost depusă o cerere din partea unei persoane fizice, Florin Ioan Zamfir, din Iaşi, pe data de 30 aprilie 2009, iar pentru sintagma "Romania, the land of choice" la OSIM este depusă o cerere de înregistrare ca marcă din partea cabinetului individual de avocatură Năstase Iulian Bogdan din satul Daia, comuna Roşia, judeţul Sibiu.

Udrea apreciază că este inacceptabil ca "anumiţi impostori" să încerce înregistrarea sintagmei ca marcă ce le-ar aparţine.

"În timp ce noi ne străduim să îmbunătăţim imaginea ţării noastre cu cheltuieli cât mai mici, unii indivizi stau la colţ şi vor bani pentru a ne lăsa să continuăm aceste eforturi", susţine ministrul Turismului.

Udrea a precizat că cei care încearcă să înregistreze "the land of choice" ca marcă nu au cerut încă bani ministerului, însă crede că acesta este motivul pentru care au făcut solicitările la OSIM.
"Nu avem niciun fel de motive, nici de natură legală, cu atât mai puţin de natură morală, care să ne determine să abandonăm acest proiect. În consecinţă, vom continua să susţinem imnul turistic al României şi vom intensifica acţiunile de promovare a acestuia", a conchis Udrea.

Daniela Crudu a fost ceruta de nevasta

Vedeta Antenei 1, Daniela Crudu, a fost prezenta in acest weekend la Craiova pentru o prezentare de moda, ocazie cu care i-a fermecat pe olteni, asa incat a fost ceruta si de sotie.

Craiovenii care au umplut sambata pana la refuz sala Teatrului Liric au putut admira tinutele nonconformiste prezentate in premiera de designerul Stefan Musca, dar si formele frumoasei asistente de la matinalul cu Razvan si Dani.

Admiratorii insa nu s-au limitat la a-i trimite numai flori brunetei focoase, ci unul dintre ei a cerut-o chiar de nevasta, scrie
Cancan.

"Daniela Crudu are cei mai frumosi sani din Romania. Cand a urcat pe scena, m-a fermecat. Am cerut-o de sotie pentru ca in clipa de fata este idolul meu, iar sanii ei sunt perfecti, ii admir in fiecare dimineata, la emisiune", a declarat craioveanul, care a spus ca nu mai doarme noptile de dorul ei.

Mihaela Rădulescu se mută în Monaco

Mihaela Radulescu renunta la cariera in televiziune pentru a se muta in Monaco, alaturi de fiul ei, Ayan. Se pare ca vedeta "Duminicii in familie" a negociat plecarea cu Elan Schwartzenberg, fostul ei sot.

"Mihaela se retrage in Principatul Monaco. Ea va intrerupe orice activitate in mass-media si se va dedica cresterii copilului. Mihaela a facut multi pasi importanti in aceasta perioada: si-a cerut scuze fostului sot pentru comportamentul indecent pe care l-a avut in ultimele opt luni si recunoaste ca ii pare rau ca familia si casnicia s-au distrus", a declarat o sursa apropiata Mihaelei Radulescu, pentru Cancan.

Se pare ca Mihaela se gandeste serios la posibilitatea de a-si reface viata, chiar cu Elan. Vedeta parcurge incet acesti pasi, si pentru moment, pentru linistea copilului, ea i-a cerut lui Elan sa o sprijine sa se mute definitiv la Monaco, unde va pleca in urmatoarea saptamana.

Mihaela Radulescu a anuntat in cadrul emisiunii pe care o prezinta ca se retrage definitiv din televiziune si ca aceasta este "ultima luna" din cariera sa in televiziune si ca intentioneaza sa se retraga definitiv din lumina reflectoarelor.

Adresandu-se publicului din sala, Mihaela Radulescu a explicat ca actiunea sa nu este o toana, ci o decizie pe care a luat-o dupa mult timp de gandire.Urmand modelul lui Teo Trandafir, Mihaela Radulescu a anuntat ca va mai face inca doua editii ale emisiunii sale, si apoi va disparea din peisajul mediatic.

In ultimul timp, iubita lui Dani Otil nu a mai aparut in nicio publicatie, ca o forma de protest fata de colegii din presa.

Romaniţa părăseşte casa din Primăverii

Carmen Harra i-a spus Romaniţei să părăsească casa din Primăverii pentru că spiritul celui care a fost ucis încă este prezent în clădirea respectivă.

„Spiritul, se spune, al unui suflet care a plecat într-un anume loc, felul în care el a plecat... el a plecat omorât... spiritul lui nu şi-a găsit drumul dincolo aşa de uşor cum credem noi. E un proces. Să te naşti e un proces care durează nouă luni, să treci dincolo de lumea asta fizică durează cel puţin 40 de zile... unele spirite nu se eliberează atât de repede şi au tendinţa să revină prin locul unde au mai trecut”, crede Carmen Harra.

Cât despre viitor, parapsihologul de peste Ocean i-a prezis Romaniţei că se va recăsători: „O... păi ne căsătorim, cam în doi ani şi ceva, până la trei ani, găsim un bărbat foarte frumos, care face foarte multe drumuri între România, Italia, Paris. Este un bărbat înalt, frumos, prezentabil, a mai fost şi el însurat”, a spus Carmen Harra la „Happy Hour Special”. În emisiunea moderată de Cătălin Măruţă, creatoarea de modă a aflat că urmează să se căsătorească, însă nu cu actualul iubit. Cel puţin asta este ceea ce prevede. Despre bărbatul cu care Romaniţa are în prezent o relaţie, Carmen Harra a povestit că a mai fost căsătorit şi că are un băiat.

Lucru pe care l-a confirmat în prezent şi Romaniţa în cadrul emisiunii „Happy Hour”. Romaniţa a mai aflat şi alte aspecte despre propria persoană, aspecte încifrate în codul vieţii sale. Astfel, pe baza datei de naştere, 3.10.1964, Carmen Harra i-a dezvăluit creatoarei de modă că într-o viaţă anterioară a fost, cel puţin în viziunea prezicătoarei, o prinţesă din Polonia, un om puternic şi plăcut, dar care a avut o familie rigidă. În schimb, ea a încercat să îşi determine destinul propriu plecând de la Curte. Mai mult, crede Harra, pasiunea Romaniţei pentru artă, modă şi culori vine dintr-o altă viaţă anterioară, trăită la Paris. Invitata lui Măruţă a mai povestit că în codul vieţii Romaniţei sunt scrise talentul, independenţa, dar şi o relaţie puternică cu mama sa.

Romaniţa plimbată cu Oltcit-ul de Columbeanu

Intrebată despre relatia veche cu Irinel Columbeanu, Romaniţa Iovan a decis să pună punct povestii dintre modelul sărac şi fiul de milionar, explicând ca la momentul relaţiei lor de dragoste, Irinel era un bărbat modest din punct de vedere financiar.

Romaniţa Iovan a explicat că pe când era iubita lui Columbeanu acesta nu conducea un Rolls-Royce, ci un Oltcit, nu o ducea în străinătate şi nu îi făcea cadouri extravagante. Designerul de modă a ţinut să precizeze că abia din momentul despărţirii, atât ea cat si Irinel au început să crească financiar, ajungând în paralel să construiască adevărate averi. Apoi timpul a trecut şi Romaniţa Iovan a reuşit chiar să se împace cu actuala răsfaţată a lui Irinel Columbeanu, Monica.

Este un loc magic pentru amandoi. Cununia noastra religioasa va avea loc pe malul lacului, la apus, cadrul va fi unul feeric si romantic. Sunt sigura ca toti invitatii se vor simti ca intr-o poveste", declara Diana Dumitrescu .

Monica Columbeanu vrea la Holywood

Tanara sotie de miliardar, Monica Columbeanu, intentioneaza sa ne paraseasca. Ea sustine ca tara noastra este prea mica pentru ambitiile ei si vrea sa dea marea lovitura în strainatate.

Irinel Columbeanu nu mai are ce sa-i ofere. A facut-o vedeta peste noapte, a transformat-o într-o mare doamna, însa ea viseaza la mai mult. S-a plictisit de succesul pe care îl are printre romani si de gramezile de bani castigati cu usurinta. Moni vrea la Hollywood, printre adevaratele staruri!

Mădălin Voicu, tată pentru a şasea oară

Carmen, iubita lui Mădălin Voicu, a născut sâmbătă un băieţel de 3,550 kg, care a primit nota 10. Micuţul şi mămica se simt foarte bine şi vor pleca în curând acasă, unde totul îi aşteaptă gata pregătit.

Bărbaţii se plictisesc de Ramona Gabor


Ghinionistă mai e şi Ramona în dragoste. De când a venit de la Bacău niciun bărbat nu rezistă alături de ea mai mult de câteva săptămâni.
Aşa se face că şi fotbalistul de doar 19 ani Cristian Daminuţă, pe care îl vrăjise după o singură seară petrecută într-un club de fiţe şi cu care ieşise de câteva ori, i-a dat rapid papucii.
Zilele trecute, el şi-a postat pe contul de Messenger un status surpriză pentru domnişoara Gabor: „Caut iubită”. Ce umilitor! Degeaba şi-a pus silicoane şi a tăiat din nas, că tot fug bărbaţii de ea. Asta e, când nu ai noroc…

Elena Udrea, dezamăgită că unii hotelieri nu au menţinut unitățile deschise


Ministrul Turismului, Elena Udrea, a declarat, sâmbătă, la Neptun, unde a participat la inaugurarea unui centru SPA, că este dezamăgită de faptul că unii hotelieri care au avut unităţile deschise de Paşte şi de 1 Mai nu le-au menţinut în continuare la acelaşi regim.

Udrea a spus că faţă de anii precedenţi s-a înregistrat o creştere cu 200 % a numărului de turişti în perioada sărbătorilor de Paşte şi de 1 Mai, dar s-a declarat dezamăgită că unii hotelieri care au avut unităţile deschise în acea perioadă nu le-au menţinut în continuare la acelaşi regim.

"Îmi exprim dezamăgirea că nu toate hotelurile care au deschis de Paşte şi de 1 Mai au mai rămas deschise. Litoralul e frumos, dar nu-mi place pentru că nu s-au găsit soluţii pentru operatorii de turism care ţin hotelurile nemodernizate sau închise. Sunt oameni care consideră că a fi proprietar într-o staţiune înseamnă a face orice doreşti, fără să-ţi pese de cum merge staţiunea respectivă. Vom găsi soluţii legale să se întâmple lucrurile cum se întâmplă peste tot în lume", a declarat Elena Udrea.

Ea a mai spus că doreşte dezvoltarea activităţilor de agrement pe litoral şi că intenţionează să-i sprijine pe investitori în acest sens.

"Căutăm modalitatea de a le oferi diverse facilităţi", a spus Elena Udrea.
Ministrul Turismului a susţinut că mai mulţi investitori străini din ţări UE în care ea a promovat turismul românesc vor vizita România, în luna iunie, şi şi-a exprimat speranţa că va reuşi să-i convingă pe aceştia să investească în turism pe litoralul românesc.

"Dacă avem mai multe asemenea investiţii ne putem recăpăta turiştii pe care-i aveam acum 20 de ani şi îi vom determina pe turiştii români să-şi petreacă aici vacanţele", a adăugat Elena Udrea.

Elena Gheorghe, care a reprezentat România la Eurovision cu melodia "The Balkan Girls" s-a clasat pe locul 19, iar Alexander Ryback, care a interpretat melodia "Fairytale" a ocupat locul I în urma finalei care a avut loc sâmbătă-seara, pe Olympiysky Arena din Moscova.

Elena Gheorghe, care a reprezentat România la Eurovision cu melodia "The Balkan Girls" s-a clasat pe locul 19, iar Alexander Ryback, care a interpretat melodia "Fairytale" a ocupat locul I în urma finalei care a avut loc sâmbătă-seara, pe Olympiysky Arena din Moscova.

Norvegia a mai câştigat de două ori concursul Eurovision, în 1985, când a fost reprezentată de Bobbysocks, cu melodia "La Det Swinge" şi în 1995, cu melodia "Nocturne" cântată de Secret Garden". În 1996, Norvegia a obţinut locul 2, cu melodia "I Evighet" cântată de Elisabeth Andreasson.

Alexander Ryback, în vârstă de 23 de ani, care a reprezentat Norvegia cu melodia "Fairytale", compusă şi scrisă de el însuşi, este un adevărat copil-minune. Şi-a scris singur melodia, din această vară va face parte din distribuţia unui film şi a primit un număr record de voturi la selecţia naţională a Eurovision. Alexander cântă la pian şi vioară încă de la vârsta de cinci ani şi îşi compune propriile melodii.

Clasamentul final a fost stabilit în urma notelor acordate de toate cele 42 de ţări participante la Eurovisionul de anul acesta. Chiar dacă în finală au participat 25 de ţări. Notele fiecărei ţări au fost alcătuite în proporţie de 50% în baza voturilor primite de la telespectatori şi 50% de către un juriu de specialitate.


Reprezentanta României la Eurovision, cântăreaţa Elena Gheorghe, care s-a calificat în finala concursului Eurovision 2009 cu melodia "The Balkan Girls", după semifinala de marţi, a intrat în concursul de gală a 22-a din 25 de participanţi. România a primit puncte din partea Moldovei (12), Spaniei (7), R. Macedonia (5), Turcia (5), Azerbaijanului (3), Serbiei (2), Ciprului (2), Portugaliei (2), Irlandei (2).

Elena Gheorghe a declarat, înaintea finalei, pentru TVR, că îşi doreşte foarte mult să se claseze între primii cinci, sau, dacă nu, măcar între primii zece. Cântăreaţa a mai spus că ştie că anul acesta concursul este unul dintre cele mai grele, deoarece sunt foarte multe piese bune şi fiecare ţară a venit foarte bine pregătită.


Cea mai bună performanţă a României la Eurovision a fost locul al treilea, obţinut de Luminiţa Anghel & Sistem în anul 2005, cu piesa "Let me try".

Anna Lesko strigă în gura mare că miliardarul „e luat”!

Se pare că scandalul cu Elena Hueanu, blonda care a fost surprinsă cu Elan la mare, a determinat-o pe Anna Lesko să pună piciorul în prag şi să vorbească deschis despre povestea ei de dragoste cu miliardarul.

Poate aşa află toate piţipoancele că Elan Schwartzenberg „e luat” şi stau la distanţă!

Cântăreaţa Anna Lesko este vedeta de pe coperta noului număr al revistei „Bolero”. Cu această ocazie, rusoaica care „arde-n flăcări” pentru Schwartzenberg ne povesteşte câte ceva despre legătura amoroasă cu omul de afaceri.

Moldavian and Bucovinian Cuisine

This region lies in the north-eastern part of Romania and historically speaking it suffered few foreign influences from people who came to conquer these lands or to trade with natives. They managed to influence more or less the local culture. The Byzantine Empire and later on Greeks left some culinary marks in Moldavia – a large variety of sweets, some spicy dressing with various flavours or the Mediterranean habit of using dry wine to cook some dishes.

Turks (when the region came under their influence between the 16th and the very beginning of the 19th century) left one of the most powerful imprints on the local cuisine: the use of mutton on a large scale and dishes like musaca or hotchpotch (ghiveci). We should not forget the Russians: they left us something too - pickled vegetables and a lot of baked dishes and baked cakes. Nowadays the Moldavian cuisine is considered as being one of the most subtle of our country. Because of some Mediterranean influences (from Greeks) it is much lighter than for instance the Transylvanian one and it is also very tasty.
People in this part of the country eat a lot of soups; chicken soup is at high esteem among these (like it is the use of white meat – chicken and fish) and borsch (a homemade fermentation liquid obtained from bran and water) is largely used to get a slightly sour taste to soups. “Ciorba de potroace” (a kind of sour soup) is also particular in this area. It is made of chicken giblets boiled together with carrots, onion, rice, parsley and it is seasoned with borsch – people say this soup makes an excellent medicine for hangovers.
The traditional “sarmale” are to be found all over the regions but they have something specific every part of the country. They are very small in Moldavia as one can easily obtain 8 to 10 sarmale from one single leaf of cabbage and the meat used to fill the “sarmale” is usually a mixture of pork and beef. Some Moldavians would also use vine leaves apart from sauerkraut to prepare their sarmale. Bean soup, stewed cabbage or “iahnie” (particular dish made of dried beans) are among the favorite meals of these people.
We should mention Moldavian “tochitura” too (chopped pork meat – liver and kidneys – mixed with lard, garlic, pepper and of course a glass of wine; everything is fried and simmered) which is always served with polenta.
Pies are traditional as desserts and they have extremely diverse shapes and tastes. Some of the best known pies are filled with cheese (cheese, especially mutton cheese is very much used in the Moldavian cuisine), sauerkraut, pumpkin, apples or comfiture. Donughts, dumplings, some kind of panettone, mucenici, pasca and pancakes enrich the list of local sweets which is anyway very large. Another local figure are walnuts – these fruits are used for a lot of cookies in Moldavia.

Roaming around Romania

Think of Romania and almost instantly your mind will wonder to Transylvania and visions of Dracula. Or, you might envision gypsy fortunetellers scrying into their smoked-filled crystal balls. Bucharest or “Little Paris” as it was once called also awaits the wondering tourist with tree-lined boulevards and outdoor cafes just calling to be discovered. Of course there is also the call of the wild because the wolf (my favorite creature) is still a popular and well-liked animal in this county. What else? Not to be outdone by Hollywood, films such as “Cold Mountain” have also been made here in which Romania was substituted for the Appalachians.

But I didn’t really know any of this when I arrived other than the sundry legends, the jokes my friends had made about garlic, crucifixes and Vlad the Impaler, and a vague memory of gypsy caravans being pulled by worn out horses - but more on that later.
More about the little lost lamb and the Ukraine border patrol yielding some mighty strong brass as well, but okay, I promise all that will come soon enough because you see I discovered a lot more than I expected on my first trip to Romania.
Romania actually has 25 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and quite a few medieval cities that are still intact. Transylvania is said to sit on one of the earth’s most powerful magnetic fields and vampires are believed to hang out at crossroads here on St. George’s Day (April 23) and the eve of St. Andrew (November 29).

However, before I could learn any of this I had to arrive and arrive I certainly did. I’d come in with my colleague from Budapest, Hungary on a train in the Eurail system. Not too bad, but it wasn’t the Orient Express (especially when you can see the ground swishing by from the toilet in the restroom, it’s a bit unsettling, but at least there is a toilet.)
Arriving in Oradea we found our guide, who turned out to be a retired teacher, thus my constant questioning about “the Communist times” did not put him off one bit and it certainly gave me a better understanding of the country.
It really is important to know a little history of Romania before visiting, especially the more modern history such as the fact that post WWII Romania was a communist-block country whose dictator was a real tyrant by the name of Nicolae Ceausescu. In 1989 the national uprising led to his overthrow and death and now Romania has freedom of speech, religion and private ownership.
It was raining in Oradea (a border town next to Hungary) when we arrived so it was decided that we would head straight away to our bed and breakfast for the night. It took a few hours and it was at this time that I really began to see Romania. It didn’t take me long to realize that cars were not necessarily the number one means of transportation here, nope there were just nearly as many horse and carts on the road traveling at a rate of speed I didn’t think possibly and of course, this was the day that I got my first look at a real gypsy caravan. As it turned out there were many gypsy caravans on the road, but if you stop and look at them or try and take a picture they will demand money so beware.
There was also the incident at the Ukraine border. I figured we were all friends now so there should be no problem going over the border just to touch my toe and say I’d been there. “No can do” was what my guide adamantly insisted and I believed him when I saw those handy little machine guns the Ukrainian Border guards were wielding, not even a smile could change their minds, and you can’t take pictures either. Something about being an international spy and all that, but anyway it was nice to see the land on the other side of Romania – just a hop, skip and a jump, but oh so far away.
After this little adventure we made our way to Brasov by way of Dracula’s lair, or better known as Sighisoara. Sighisoara is an amazingly well-preserved medieval city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built by the Saxons between the 12th and 17th centuries. If you climb to the clock tower you can easily see the roofs of buildings that were built in the 16th century by the Saxons and there are lovely cobblestone streets to set the mood as well.
However, as beautiful as Sighisoara is with the many historic attractions such as the scholar’s staircase consisting of 175 stairs, all enclosed and leading up to the Church on the Hill with a Romanesque crypt and 500-year old frescoes, it is the Dracula legend that really pulls visitors to this town.
In the 15th century Vlad Dracula better known as Vlad the Impaler was born in Sighisoara and it is Vlad who most people associate with the modern day Dracula legends created by Bram Stoker. In fact, Vlad was ruler of the Wallachia area and during his lifetime he took to impaling criminals and enemies in the town square as a punishment for anything from killing, stealing to lying. Sighisoara has all sorts of little shops to buy Dracula souvenirs and in a town nearby there is even a Dracula hotel.
The following morning we were on yet another drive through Romania when our guide suggested we might want to see the location where the film “Cold Mountain” was shot. My colleague being in the film industry was all for it so we went cruising down a little dirt road only to end up finding a lost little lamb. We immediately stopped to investigate and I don’t know about you, but it just so happens that I have never seen a lamb up close and personal and certainly not a three-week old lamb (give or take) alone in the middle of the woods a virtual appetizer at best for the hungry wolves in the forest. The lamb ran as best “she” could to get away from us, but we caught her and not seeing her mother around anywhere (or any other lamb or sheep for that matter) it was decided that we would find a shepherd and unload the injured lamb on him because indeed the lamb was injured with a hurt front leg.
Of course we had been seeing shepherds everywhere before we started looking for one, but in this case there were no shepherds to be found. Okay, so my next question was do we take the lamb to Bucharest or do you, dear guide, happen to know a stray shepherd? He did in fact know a shepherd woman in the small town over here and there and just about one hour off the beating path so off we went to deposit our lamb to her new home.
When we met the shepherd woman she immediately warmed a bottle of milk and fed the little lamb, I was amazed at how easy it all happened. It also just so happened that her son lived on the block over, had a bed and breakfast and a couple of wolves about 30 minutes down the road.
Our original destination that morning had been to Peles Castle to see yet another “Dracula” inspired destination and it was worth it when we finally made it there. From there we stopped in Brasov for the night. Brasov is another medieval city with Bran Castle (home to the legendary Dracula legend) nearby. The city also boasts the Black Church, St. Nicholas Church, the Brasov Fortress and a Franciscan Monastery, all must sees on your trip.
Our last day and night was in the capital city of Bucharest. Bucharest is an amazing city with a French feel and it was only interrupted in its growth because of the unfortunate Communist rule, which really stunted the growth of just about everything.

Nowadays, it seems that Bucharest is moving into the future at an unbelievable speed and on my first night there I attended a concert at the Opera House. It turned out that my guide’s uncle was giving a piano recital and the music was amazing, old and timeless. The atmosphere in the Opera House was divine and even as I sat in the velvet upholstery chairs with years of wear I realized that I was just one of thousands who had sat in this exact same place enjoying the same sort of satisfaction.The Palace of the Parliament is about as unbelievable a place as any that one will find in a European city on the continent. It speaks of the Communist rule in the worst sort of way even though it was called “The House of the People,” by those in charge at that time. It is, amazingly, the world’s second largest building after the United States Pentagon and it daily serves to remind the people of the Communist rule in Romania. The building was actually commenced during that time period, however, amazing art graces the walls, balconies look toward the city and 1000 rooms inside reflect the work of Romania’s best artisans and architects.
Over at the National Art Museum I found there were over 70,000 works both in the national gallery that exhibits Romanian artists and a world gallery exhibiting western masters such as Rembrandt and Renoir.
Bucharest was said to have be named after a shepherd named Bucur who could apparently play a mean flute, thus dazzling locals way back when so much that the city was named after him. In the 19th century the city was remodeled by French architects, and thus, this is where it gets its “French feel.” In fact, you can even find the Triumphal Arch on Soseaua Kiseleff, which is a boulevard in Bucharest that is even longer than the Champs-Elysees.
My final stop before going to bed that evening was at a Gypsy’s house where I told my guide I wanted to spend no more than $20 on my fortune. However, it doesn’t work that way in Romania and before I knew it I was out of the car and we were sitting in this woman’s parlor where she was telling me it would cost $100 for a reading. After I stopped laughing I told her I was out of there and then she countered her offer and made it, surprise, $20. However, my guide got ill (from the evil eye he presumed) and we had to leave anyway and me without much of a reading. I did learn that my love life was in shambles and a curse had been put on me by a bad person who did not like me. I decided to take my chances instead of pay her the $200 she requested to turn my love life around. I figured I could do my own spells and expect a better outcome.
The Gypsy fortunetelling is a gas, but buyer beware. Of course, that’s another thing I love about Romania - the Eastern European feel, the fact that Gypsy’s really do still drive down the road in horse-drawn caravans and people really are still nice and genuine and always willing to help.
Bucharest alone has 37 museums, 22 theaters, opera houses and concert halls, 18 art galleries and an innumerable number of main attractions for the visitor. So believe me when I say that Romania is well worth the trip and the best way I know to really enjoy an eastern European country before it is teeming with western tourists and touting the new currency of the Euro, which will happen too soon in the future when the country enters the European Union.
