Charlie’s Angels became an instant cultural phenomenon and shot to the top of the ratings after premiering in 1976. It made overnight stars of its original crime-fighting “Angels”, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith and the trio made the cover of Time magazine that year. It went on to spawn two hit feature films of the same name.
However as Behind The Camera The Unauthorized Story of Charlie’s Angels (True Movies, Monday March 28 at 20h45) reveals all was not plain sailing. The show’s original title was Alley Cats; Farah Fawcett-Majors, then the loving wife of Six Million Dollar Man star Lee Majors took the role for a laugh while John Forsythe became the unseen Charlie as a last-minute replacement after a big-name star showed up drunk.

DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck has made four changes and a positional switch in the starting XV to face the Cell C Sharks at DHL Newlands.
There is just one injury-enforced change to the backline, with Kurt Coleman stepping up at flyhalf in the absence of Rob du Preez who has been ruled out for up to 12 weeks with a knee injury. This means that the talented Jean-Luc du Plessis could make his Vodacom Super Rugby debut if he comes off the bench to replace Coleman.
In the front row props JC Janse van Rensburg and Frans Malherbe get their first opportunity to start this season, with Oli Kebble and Vincent Koch taking their respective places on the replacements bench.
Siya Kolisi will also get his first start of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, with Schalk Burger taking the No.8 jersey and Nizaam Carr moving to No.6 in place of Sikhumbuzo Notshe who is set for an impact role off the bench. Continue reading

On Monday night I attended the very first Inclusive City dialogue as part of the second phase of the Inclusive City Campaign which the City of Cape Town launched in 2015.
During this phase, the idea is for local councillors to initiate workshops with community leaders, where everyone can collectively grapple with racism. As leaders, we can never make the assumption that we have the solutions to all society’s problems. The input and ideas from everyday people often give the most meaningful insights and I was looking forward to hearing directly from the people in a local community. Continue reading
So, we all know you get three types of foundation – liquid, powder and cream…yawn. I however recently found out that you can actually add some primer to your foundation before applying to make it more translucent.
I obviously had to give this a go a few times before sharing this nifty little trick with you and it actually works! It retains the foundation’s coverage without looking as caked on, plus you also get that long lasting, all-day foundation…bonus!
It however boils down to the results you are looking for ladies. Primer works on the principle of layers, so if you want the full effect you will need to do it in steps. However, this method of mixing your primer with your foundation works beautifully and is great for when you want lighter coverage, but not actually a fan of BB cream.
Here’s how: Continue reading
