Wendi Deng Murdoch is burning up the web after her chivalrous bitch slap of the would-be pie thrower, in defense of her man, Rupert Murdoch. Tweets and Facebook groups are cropping up applauding the cat-like reflexes of the Chinese American producer and mother of two. We interviewed Deng Murdoch in our Summer issue, as a part of our cover story on Li Bing Bing and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. She’s the powerhouse behind the film, and apparently behind her man as well. Check out the video (courtesy of Metro) and just remember — never mess with an Asian woman!
We’ve got a pretty cool giveaway this week! In this high tech age, it’s something we can all use — an AOC Aire Black LED Monitor.
In our Summer 2011 issue, we introduced you to celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu’s new book Feed Your Face: Younger, Smother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days. Here, some more beautifying tips from the skin guru.
Audrey Magazine: Given England’s long association with India, I was a bit surprised to read that you experienced so much racism growing up — a very similar experience for many Asian Americans growing up in the ’70s. Can you tell us a bit more about your experience and how you came to embrace your Indian heritage?
The Huffington Post, among other news outlets, is reporting that the Indian-Pakistani American wife of less than one year of Congressman Anthony Weiner (he of Twitter-gate), Huma Abedin, is pregnant.
I’m a super lazy hair person. I mean, I can spend hours on skin care and makeup, but hair? I wanna just wash and go. It helps that my hair is generally healthy and frizz-free, and that a ponytail or high bun is my look du jour.
But I will say, my perspective has changed a bit after I got a blow-out at Nelson Chan’s salon a couple months back. My hair looked like it belonged in a Pantene commercial and I’m seriously reconsidering the whole wash and go look.
I’m ashamed to say it, but it took me a while to read The New York Times bestseller Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. In fact, I read it after I saw a preview screening of the upcoming Wayne Wang film of the same name, due out July 15. (On a side note, check out our summer cover with the star of the film, Li Bing Bing, on the cover here!)
Well, I made up for lost time because I immediately gobbled up author Lisa See‘s 2010 follow-up, Shanghai Girls, which gives us a fascinating look not just into the glory days of 1940s Shanghai, but also mid-century L.A. Chinatown (yes, the one on Broadway!) and what life was like for the earliest Asian American immigrants. And thanks to the belated reading, I didn’t have to wait long to find out what happened to the beautiful Shanghai sisters Pearl and May — a few weeks after I finished Shanghai Girls, I received word that the sequel to Shanghai Girls, Dreams of Joy, was coming out at the end of May.
I’m heading out to the Caribbean in a few weeks and, other than the much-needed break, I’m looking forward to the humidity. Not that my hair needs the unruliness that comes with damp atmospheric conditions, but my skin thrives on the extra boost of moisture. Sure, I look like a sweaty, oily mess, but my skin positively glows in moist, humid air.
It’s a lifelong quest — capturing that glow that comes with the sweltering, dripping heat of a more humid clime here in the arid environment I call home (L.A.). I’m hoping that Nivea‘s newest technology — Hydra IQ – will be the answer.
