Welcome to the May & June 2018 issue of Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM)!
As the Summer Solstice approaches and Los Angeles tilts toward the Sun, all the earthly stars below shimmer bright on movie sets in Universal City, Studio City, Culver City and in the studios and on film locations from Hollywood to Venice Beach. We are blessed here in the land of dreams to live among such divine talent. Although, they may make it look easy, their stars shine bright only after they merge much hard work together with perseverance, patience and sacrifice. What arises can be such brilliance that they are able to draw us into a world of imagination, inspiration and entertainment that transforms our everyday existence. This month we’ve been able to harness some of this star power as we bring it to the page with our line-up of “Top Women Industry Professionals!” These individuals entertain, inspire and enhance the condition of our lives and we are proud to now include them in our SOHM family.
This month’s cover story features Patrika Darbo, fresh off her Daytime Emmy win. She is a veteran of stage, television and film and her bright disposition shines through in this interview as she recounts her humble beginnings and secrets to her success in life and love. A story sure to entertain!
This month’s issue also features Pamela E. Scott-Johnson, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Natural and Social Sciences and Professor of Psychology at California State University at Los Angeles. Her research interests include eating disorders and body image, as well as factors that contribute to the success of women. A truly fascinating interview.
Plus, in this issue we travel to North Carolina to this state’s famous Azalea Festival where we catch up with this year’s Queen Azalea, Beth Troutman. This Emmy Award winner is truly beautiful both inside and out and we’re sure you’ll agree after reading this article.
In addition, we are excited to feature Prashantt Guptha as we debut our newest periodic segment “Shine on Bollywood.” Just back from emceeing the South Asian Empowerment Awards celebrating South Asian women, this rising star reveals his own tale of overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds to fulfill a dream. His interview is sure to inspire you.
Finally, please check out our article on Hollywood star power at the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Tournament, our Show Dogs movie review and coverage of the NFMLA Awards!
We encourage you to “Let them be your motivation.”
