Petra Nemcova praises The Impossible for tsunami accuracy

January 6th, 2014 6:10am EST
Petra Nemcova
Model Petra Nemcova struggled to watch acclaimed 2012 disaster movie The Impossible because it was a very accurate reminder of the tsunami that claimed the life of her boyfriend.

The Czech beauty was one of the survivors of the 2004 disaster in Thailand - she clung to a treetop with a shattered pelvis watching holiday makers and locals getting swept away by the tidal wave.

The tragedy was recounted in The Impossible, in which Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor portrayed a real-life couple who also survived the disaster.

Nemcova has given the film a big thumbs up for its accuracy, telling Shap...

The star-studded amfAR Gala is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the Cannes Film Festival. On Thursday night, a crowd of celebs attended the annual fundraiser, including Sharon Stone, Jessica Chastain, Christoph Waltz, Adrian Brody, Milla Jovovich and many others.

Heidi Klum helped open the event with a toast telling the crowd to down a glass of Moët & Chandon to help loosen the purse strings. She said, "I have to stop, but you should keep drinking!"

Sharon Stone was overheard saying that it was her mother's 80th birthday, but instead she chose to be at the 20th Anniversary of...

Petra Nemcova attended "The Impossible" Los Angeles premiere on Monday looking gorgeous in a strapless pink gown.

The film centers on the 2004 Thailand tsunami, detailing one family's incredible fight for survival. Nemcova was trapped in the country during the storm and her fiance, photographer Simon Atlee, was killed in the disaster.

Ever since the tragedy the model has worked to help fellow survivors of natural disasters. When she watched a screening of the film she was overwhelmed by its realism.

She told Entertainment Tonight, "It definitely had a huge impact on me... The first half ...

Petra Nemcova showed off her stunning model figure at Milan Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 2013 Pin Up Stars Catwalk.

The Czech-born model wore an orange string bikini with bear faces on the top as well as a dainty floral yellow bikini.

Nemcova has been unlucky in love. In 2004, her fiance, Simon Atlee, died during the 2004 tsunami in Thailand. Nemcova survived by hanging on to a tree for eight hours. In 2010 she got engaged to British actor Jamie Belman, but their relationship fizzled out two years later. This past spring she was linked to actor Sean Penn.

Sean Penn And Petra Nemcova
Sean Penn and Petra Nemcova have fueled rumors they are a couple after they were spotted enjoying a date at U2 rocker Bono's birthday party in New York on Thursday night.

Nemcova and Penn were originally linked in 2008, but reportedly rekindled their romance after the model broke off her engagement to British actor Jamie Belman in April.

And they refused to hide their affection for each other at a party for Bono's 52nd birthday at The Spotted Pig in the Big Apple.

According to New York Post gossip column Page Six, the two were "very much" together as they partied with Jay-Z, Anna Wintour...

Petra Nemcova
Model Petra Nemcova is bouncing back from her broken engagement to British actor Jamie Belman by seeking solace in the arms of Sean Penn, according to a report.

The Czech beauty was due to exchange vows with Belman this summer, but the couple called off its wedding and split in early April.

The runway stunner has since reportedly turned to Oscar winner and fellow humanitarian Penn for comfort - and the pair, which was first romantically linked in 2008, was spotted enjoying a cozy dinner date in New York just days after the news of her break up from Belman hit the headlines.

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns Hines Ward MVP Of The Ballroom

May 25th, 2011 8:09am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars." But the judges still had another set of scores to give on Tuesday’s finale, and we got three hours of show to sit through. Three hours. They had to make up for Monday’s show only being an hour long, I guess.

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Sends Petra Packing

April 20th, 2011 9:27am EDT
PETRA NEMCOVA
American Week performances were hit and miss, so I’m glad we’re putting that behind us, and I’m looking forward to next week’s “guilty pleasures” theme. But of course there is the business of who has to go home to deal with before we can move on. Let’s take a look at where Monday’s judges’ scores left us:

1. Hines and Kym - 27
2. Chris and Cheryl - 26
2. Chelsea and Mark - 26
2. Romeo and Chelsie - 26
3. Kirstie and Maks - 23
4. Ralph and Karina - 22
4. Petra and Dmitry - 22
4. Kendra and Louis - 22

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Salutes The Red, White And Blue

April 19th, 2011 10:00am EDT
DWTS American Week
It’s American Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and Monday was a night of odd music choices mixed with dances that didn’t fit them. As a result, there were a lot of awkward performances, and mixed reviews. I think they may have started out with a good idea for a theme, but didn’t carry it out very well. After last week’s classical theme, it was a definite step down. But the show must go on, and ‘Dancing’ has always got to have a gimmick, right?

Ralph Macchio (Actor) and Karina Smirnoff
Dance: Samba
Scores: 8, 7, 7

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Elimination Is 'The Heart Of The Show' Sugar Ray

April 13th, 2011 9:28am EDT
SUGAR RAY LEONARD - ANNA TREBUNSKAYA
Classical Week performances are over and done, but ‘Dancing With The Stars’ still had last night’s results show to milk the orchestra. It wasn’t quite as effective with Jennifer Hudson taking Katherine Jenkins’ spot at center stage, but that wasn’t really what mattered. What mattered is who the heck was going to go home. This was one of those weeks that it seemed like it could have been anyone.

In fact, the first couple declared to be in jeopardy was sort of a shock based on judge scores, but even then I still wondered if it really could have been their time. I’m getting ahead of mys...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Gives Us Classics & Another Leader Board Shift

April 12th, 2011 9:20am EDT
DWTS Classical themed week
Tchaikovsky, Rota, Bocelli, Williams... It’s Classical Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and the band has gone and multiplied into a 46 member orchestra. On top of that, we had some amazing guest stars, like violinist David Garrett and singer Katherine Jenkins. I’m not a huge fan of classical music, but I enjoy it enough, and this was one of the best theme nights I can remember in recent seasons.

The stage was really quite amazing to see, and it brought a whole new element to the show. Last season they did Acoustic Week, and that was uneventful in my eyes, but this was a game changer. ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Review: Week Three Elimination... Wendy Williams

DANCING WITH THE STARS THE RESULTS SHOW
Monday night we laughed and cried, and oohed and aahed, among other cliche reactions, over the emotional stories our stars told with their dances. We collectively cringed over Kirstie and Maks’ fall, then talked about it all day long. We discussed how the scores have been all over the place this season... and then talked about Kirstie and Maks some more.

Look, you fall down on ‘Dancing’, and you’re going to have to talk about it and hear about it until you have a nervous breakdown. It’s just the way it is.

Here’s a run down of where we stood after Monday’s performances:

Petra Nemcova Struggles Through Emotion And Pain On 'Dancing With The Stars'

April 5th, 2011 9:34pm EDT
Petra Nemcova
Model Petra Nemcova's performance on Dancing With The Stars was filled with emotion on Monday night - she danced to the song that helped her fight back to health after her ordeal in the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004.

Nemkova was vacationing with her fiance Simon Atlee when the giant waves hit Indonesia on the day after Christmas.

Atlee was killed and Nemkova was left stranded on a treetop with a shattered pelvis and other life-threatening injuries for eight hours.

She has always credited Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" as the song that helped her through the recovery process and on Monday...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Performances Get Emotional

April 5th, 2011 9:20am EDT
CHRIS JERICHO CHERYL BURKE
With Mike and Lacey gone, we now have ten stars standing, some good, some bad, some ridiculous. Some of them are all of those things at the same time, and this week they get to tell us their personal stories. Each star picked a song that they had an emotional connection to, and had to express it in their dance.

It wasn’t as silly as I thought it was going to be.

The outcomes were a little surprising, most especially because they gave us a brand new pecking order at the end of the night. Again. This season is shaping up to be unpredictable. Don’t these people realize that they’re toyi...

Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer
It's inevitable. One by one, all the contestants on 'Dancing With The Stars' will go home until there is only one left standing. It's no fun for anyone, but for the very first to go, it downright stinks.

Of course, before we kick someone off the dance floor crying (maybe), the first hour of 'Dancing' is the recap hour. I actually really like to rewatch the dances without all the extraneous stuff. And I have to admit that on second watch, yes, I was a little harsh in my criticism of Petra this week. Did I think she had any better a chance going into the elimination show after a rewatch...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Performances Review

March 29th, 2011 8:47am EDT
Romeo and Chelsie Hightower
It's week two of 'Dancing With The Stars', and expectations are high. For some. Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley came out on fire last week, and we wanted to see if they can keep up the high standard. Was it luck? A product of the opening night high? I was especially interested in seeing Kirstie, considering I expected utter clumsiness last week. She shocked a lot of people. Can she do it again?

The rest of our stars are... not so heavily anticipated. In fact, Mike Catherwood couldn't get worse. Well, I shouldn't say that. He could fall down this week, or have a nervous bre...

On the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, we were treated to a handful of surprises. Karate Kid Ralph Macchio started at the top of the competition, and right behind him was... Kirstie Alley!

Meanwhile, fan favorites Kendra Wilkinson and Wendy Williams were on the bottom half - lucky for them, radio personality Mike Catherwood had the worst performance of the night. But let's start at the top:

Ralph Macchio stunned the judges with his foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff, set to "Kick in the Head." Judge Len Goodman said the obvious: "You've got great potential... best foxtrot of ...

Petra Nemcova Considered Quitting 'Dancing' To Help Tsunami Survivors

Petra Nemcova
Tsunami survivor Petra Nemcova almost pulled out of an upcoming stint on TV show Dancing With The Stars to help disaster victims in Japan.

The supermodel was vacationing in Thailand when the 2004 tsunami struck, claiming the life of her boyfriend Simon Atlee and leaving her trapped in a tree with multiple injuries. She has since founded the Happy Hearts charity organization, and dedicates much of her spare time to helping children and their families get back on their feet after natural disasters.

Last week’s hometown visits helped “The Bachelor” eliminate professional embalmer and future head of the funeral home, Shawntel N.

Cool as Shawntel was, she wasn’t making it out of the subsequent rose ceremony alive.

In Hollywood it seems that marriages, engagements and divorces happen too often in a very short amount of time. There are a few lucky couples that can make a celebrity marriage work and some that can’t even make it through the honeymoon stage. Let’s hope these couples who plan on tying the knot this year can prove us wrong.
