Do you ever talk to us on Twitter or Facebook and wonder who’s behind the screen? Meet Denique LeBlanc, social media guru, entertainment junkie and vlogger extraordinaire. Say hi to him at @andpop or on our Facebook page! He’s our newest addition in 2013 and wanted to say hi.
I’m Denique LeBlanc, 19 years of age and currently munching on Oreo ice cream. I can’t remember a time when the entertainment world wasn’t a part of my life… ok, maybe back in the fifth grade, when I was forced into doing the annual science fair (BLAH).
Even back then, I was far more interested in hearing about the latest music/celebrity news, as opposed to learning the secret to a fake volcanic eruption. Needless to say, I never aced science. In fact, I hated school so much that I finished grade 12 a semester early to move to Montreal. Since then, I dove head-first into the real world with tons of drive and a big dream: to work in “the business.” I lived in Quebec for half a year, then spent the past year living in Australia where “girls” became “gulls” and “thank you” was replaced by an obnoxious “tah.”
After a lot of traveling, many random adventures, numerous mistakes and a ton of exhilarating projects, I’m ready to step into the Canadian spotlight and entertain! I’m thrilled to be a part of the team at ANDPOP and I can’t wait for what’s to come in 2013! Drop me a line on Twitter at @andpop or on our Facebook page.

Schwarzenegger has recently admitted to fathering a child more than a decade ago with a longtime member of his household staff. Talk about a scandal.
Not only did the woman work in his family home for over twenty years, but she also remained working for the couple 10 years after giving birth to the child.
Schwarzenegger has released a statement:
“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.
“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”
As for the woman who worked for them, she said:
“I wanted to achieve my 20 years, then I asked to retire,” she said, adding she received a severance payment and “left on good terms with them.”
This is a classic scandalous hollywood story. At least Schwarzenegger had the decency to assume financial responsibility for the child, instead of simply abandoning it. But the fact that this was all happening under Shriver’s nose for almost ten years is a little painful to hear.
Soon, Nintendo Wii addicts will be able to step into Indy’s shoes in a quest of their own. “Indiana Jones And The Staff Of The Kings” follows the archeologist in an all new journey across the world and hits stores in late spring of 2009.
The adventure is set in 1939 where Indy must battle with his nemesis, Magnus Völler, over who can find the staff of moses. For that he’ll have travel all over the world including the jungles of Panama and San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Gamers can expect action sequences similar to Indy’s pursuit of the motorcade in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, or the mine-cart scene featured in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”.
Indy’s signature whip will be useful: the Wii remote functions as the iconic weapon. Gamers will experience intense chases and be able to control vehicles, including a biplane in a canyon trench.
She’s very generous to her audiences, but Tyra Banks appears to be a Grinch when it comes to her staff!
According to Janet Charlton’s Hollywood.com, Banks treated her “Top Model” employees to a less-than-festive Christmas party at a “lower East-side dive bar [where] her employees drank a lot because there was no food.”
That is, until Banks arrived long enough to say she was off to Italy, and give the staff their gifts – Santa’s toy bag filled with McDonald’s cheeseburgers. This adds insult to injury, as the crew relocated from Los Angeles to New York for the show.
Banks reportedly has a $30 million contract for “Top Model.”
