  • The following is from Leanne from Kiwi Attic
    On Sunday, Lucy featured in both the Sunday Star Times and the Sunday News regarding the Top 100 people in New Zealand in terms of wealth. The Sunday Star Times has an excellent 46 page booklet which has a full page picture and accompanying article detailing Lucy's earnings and how she ranks against other New Zealand top-earners. Both her and Rachel Hunter are the top of the entertainers section. http://kiwiattic.bizland.com/Xena/otheritems/Top100.htm  
  • The Sunday News also has a small picture and contains similar information. Not as impressive as the wee booklet though! All articles have been transcribed for you. http://kiwiattic.bizland.com/Xena/SundayNews/250201.htm
  • The New Idea this week has a two page story about Lucy in the upcoming episode of Just Shoot Me (which has already aired in the USA) with a series of screen pictures and full page picture of Lucy dressed up "to the nines" in her screen role. http://bizland.kiwiattic.com/Xena/NewIdea/030301.htm
  • This weeks Sunday News has a write up of the programme (Lawless with Kevin Smith) as reviewed by Bill Ralson (who is usually a political figure who does anything to create dissention). Surprisingly, he has good things to say about Kevin, and the programme. You can check out the page from the paper, along with a few excerpts from the article at this link: http://kiwiattic.bizland.com/Kevin/SN250201.htm

There has been a few people over the course of the past few days that have looked into Murphy's "death". After reviewing the evidence I believe that the online persona of Murphy is dead but the person behind the persona is not. I didn't want to believe this was true and it's not true (that is a good thing). The bad thing is that Murphy perpetrated this hoax and for that I am extremely disappointed that someone would feel the need to "kill" themselves. We've lost Rebekah and Tonya (may they both rest in peace) and it's a cruel and sadistic way to "get back" at people for whatever reason. The resources and time of people were spent in trying to find out if Murphy died. Amy if you are reading this please know that what you did was wrong and it hurt a great many people who cared for you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RENE… and many happy returns!


An Invitation to all of Tonya Muir's Online friends

from Ana 


I want to extend an invitation to all of Tonya Muir's online friends (and there are many of us). I am organizing an online memorial service/wake for all of us who wish to honor and remember our friend. The news of her death saddened many of us and I get the feeling we haven't had a chance to mourn and remember her as a community. On Friday February 16, starting at 8 PM Central time, please join us at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/For_Tonya/chat for this memorial/wake. You will need to subscribe first to my list in order to participate (sorry about that; it's the way it works) but we are not talking "long term commitment" here. I will be closing the list shortly after this memorial/wake. There will be some simple rules to follow that I will post at the beginning of the memorial/wake. To subscribe, click on For_Tonya-subscribe@yahoogroups.com I don't know how long it will take, but you can stay as long as you want to.

For more information contact Ana at ana_l_lugo@email.msn.com

Red hot Lucy and Renee picture for sale from Kiwi Attic

roclucy.jpg (5050 bytes)

The photo you have all been waiting for..........Lucy and Renee O'Connor holding hands at the TV Guide Television awards. This is an excellent quality 5 x 7inch glossy photo. Unfortunately, we were unable to budge this particular photographer from their price and as a consequence, this photo is more expensive than other 5 x 7's previously offered by Kiwi Attic. US$10.00 for the photograph, but shipping is still US$3.50, with the offer of 3 or more photos ordered being shipped for free.  http://kiwiattic.bizland.com/Xena/otheritems/LLRCphoto.htm

  • Reminder: from Dawn about the t-shirts for Charity
    With the Pasadena 2001 Xena Convention fast approaching, it is our goal to sell at least 500 (hopefully more), t-shirts to raise money for the following charities: The Starship Foundation's Safe and Sound Appeal, The Starship Children's Hospital and the James B. Ellis Foundation. These shirts will be available in a variety of sizes, will be silk-screened, 4-color process on a 50/50 white t-shirt. Click here to view t-shirts - Here is the latest info from Dawn about the t-shirts

    I just received an anonymous gift donation, matching the t-shirts sales up to $5000.00!!!!!! That's right!! $5000.00!!! I spoke to the donor (who wishes to remain anonymous), this evening, and they will be sending me 2 checks, matching the t-shirt sales up to $5000.00 ($2500.00 made out to each of the 2 charities)!! Which means, the more t-shirts we sell, the better our chances of receiving the full $5000. This person wanted to do something to say thank you to the cast and crew of Xena: Warrior Princess so they decided to donate the money to the t-shirt sales.

  • Lucy to play Wonder Woman in new movie?
    "Fans mourning the death of Xena:Warrior Princess received a glimmer of hope this week. Lucy Lawless who played the title role in the recently axed show, is the hot favourite to portray Wonder Woman, the mother of allsuper-heroines. The comic book character inspired a much-loved television series in the Seventies, starring Lynda Carter, but previous plans for Wonder Woman to join her DC Comics stablemates Batman and Superman on the big screen have floundered.

    The free concert in the Auckland Domain will be hosted by actors Lucy Lawless and Kevin Smith. Lawless' biggest challenge has been walking in high heels. She says she rarely wears them and, although she starred in a Broadway production of Grease, she has no plans to sing tonight. The concert starts at 7.30 pm and will raise money for the Starship and Kidz First children's hospitals. If postponed, it will be held tomorrow night.
