We were lucky enough to snag an interview with the 26-year-old, despite his busy schedule living and working in New York City. Make sure you check out the Personalities section of the Fall 2011 issue of Audrey, out now. Here, enjoy a bit more of our interview with Brent Chua. Continue Reading »

From remembering 9/11 to an empowering musical showcase to our own Audrey’s Fashion Night Out, here are this week’s Happenings.
When: Now to Sunday, September 18th
Where: 145 6th Ave, New York
How: Purchase tickets here.
Taking place four months after 9/11, Barriers deals with the Chinese/Pakistani Abbas family, and the loss of their oldest son Nabhil at the World Trade Center. As this multicultural family begins to disintegrate, we piece together the past each one hides, and the future they all share. Originally mounted in 2002 and then subsequently co-produced with the Asian American Theater Company in San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2003, Barriers is returning to the stage to look back on the ten-year anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy. The play is written by Rehana Mirza and directed by Colete Robert.
An easy way to turn that sexy little black dress into a fashion faux pas is by having your bra strap hang out or your décolletage less than perky. Haven’t you ever wondered how celebrities like Carrie Underwood, Fergie and Brooke Burke manage to look flawlessly beautiful at every red carpet event? Besides having a team of stylists and makeup artists, they also turn to Pure Style Girlfriends‘ line of wardrobe savers including tapes, lifts and bras — which is this week’s giveaway!
In the midst of our very fabulous 2011 fashion show, Audrey’s Fashion Night Out, one of my favorite things to get all wrapped up about is the clothes.
This year, we have seven FABULOUS designers showcasing their wears. Just looking at their Fall/Winter look books got me all hot and bothered.
Here are some of my favorite picks from each line.
Look at those ruffles! And that sweet bow on the side of the gray pencil skirt? I can definitely see myself with this sexy secretary look around the office.
With a southern drawl that would charm the pants off ya, Henry Cho has a new show scheduled to air tonight, September 8 at 8 pm EST/PST on the Great American Country (GAC). The Henry Cho Show will feature sketches, stand ups, videos, country artists, and much more to come.
It’s 80 percent harder to develop a clean act. Every comedian knows that.
A full-blooded Korean born and bred in Knoxville, Tennessee, Cho prides himself for his clean comedy that is not only family friendly but also relateable. Much of his material is a reflection of his personal life, and his honest, straightforward delivery is a refreshing change from comedy based on four letter words and crude remarks.
With 25+ years of stand up experience under his belt, Cho will be sure to deliver.
In our Fall 2011 issue, out now, we feature Rachael Yamagata who is getting set to release her first studio album in three years. Chesapeake, which will drop October 11, features Yamagata’s signature smoky vocals vis a vis an eclectic collection of songs projecting a lot more optimism and hopefulness than we’re used to. Get a taste with her new video for her single “Starlight.”
And don’t miss Yamagata live as she tours the U.S., starting on October 24 in Portland, Maine at the Port City Music Hall, and winding down on December 22 in New York City at City Winery. For more details on Yamagata’s 2011 tour dates, including her November 29th appearance at Los Angeles’ Troubador, check out her website.

The two groups plan to present DigiFest, the first ever virtual on-demand exhibition of independent movies and documentaries produced by Asian Americans.

Whenever I’m asked the question, “What’s your favorite movie genre?” I laugh a little thinking if my answer would be age-appropriate and say, “Animation.” Call me a kid, but who could resist the cute animated characters and humorous story lines? Recent announcement from DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. confirms that I can’t possibly be the only adult who enjoys watching movies that remind me of my childhood times. The summer sequel Kung Fu Panda 2 has grossed over $645 million globally to date. You would’ve never guessed that Jennifer Yuh Nelson, now the highest-grossing female director for a film at the worldwide box office, was once hesitant to take up the position. It’s a really notable achievement for an Asian American woman, especially considering this is Nelson’s directorial debut.
