Who is Victoria Silvstedt?

And why do I see commercials for her new show on E! everywhere?

I first noticed her last year. Originally from Sweden she is the letter turner on both the Italian and French versions of "Wheel of Fortune".

Is she the European version of Pamela Anderson? They both modeled for Playboy, have enormous fake boobs and lots of blond hair. While I find Victoria's blond weave (her hair looked fried on last weeks E! show) and boob job distracting, she is gorgeous. She hasn't messed with her face as much as Pam has.

Speaking of breasts, can someone explain to me the appeal of huge boob jobs? There are plenty of celebs who have them but they have ones that are in proportion. I don't get having huge ones that feel/look like big boulders sitting on your chest.

Anyway Victoria has had small parts in a few America comedies. I think we will be seeing more of her. She has a lot of male fans.

Italians are brilliant at recycling the Ameri/Euro-trash rejects who can't find work in their own countries. I first saw Victoria Silvstedt in 1999 on a Piero Chiambretti show. She's just meh to me, like most of the women on tv here.
I don't get the fascination with plastic boobs either. Maybe we should do a poll and see if men really enjoy that sort of thing. I can't wait to see what will happen when these women get old. Can you imagine an 80 yr old with hooters of steel?

Italian television needs a chesty foreign blond every 10 years or so to distract the public from what a disaster the economy is. In the 90's there was an American *showgirl* called Wendy Windham. The giant boobs are a mystery to me as well.

tee hee, maybe some guys googling "giant boobs" are going to end up on your page today, and they can explain the mystery to us themselves!

Carla said...

She's pretty funny in the movie "La mia vita a stelle e strisce"...and going with the trend here, I don't understand the huge fake boobs appeal either.

milanese - I cannot imagine an 80 year old with fake boobs. I don't think the big ones look so hot on 20 year olds.

joanne - I read a NYT article about that. Crazy there is actually a niche market for tall, chesty blonds who pretend not to speak Italian.

kimb - really I want to know. They are fake...how can they feel good?

carla - I've only see clips of her and the E! show but she seems to have a great sense of humor.

Moi said...

I was thinking the same thing as milanese-what happens when these women get old! hahaha

Ms. Violetta said...

Never heard of her. Anything surgically fake has no appeal for me. I'm also think of all those tattoos people get when they are young and how they will look at 80 years old. Ugh.
Personally, I'm trying to bring back the Rubenesque look. ;-)

Jessica said...

Sadly I have heard of her before because I am a big Howard Stern fan and she's been on his show before (shocker I know, what with the bleached hair and fake boobs).

Do not Hate.

If she wants to get implants, then let her...

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

moi - I think it will look strange.

ms. violetta - ha. I applaud your efforts.

jessica - of course she's been on Howard Stern. You know how much he loves her type.

kofi - thanks for stopping by. I don't hate the player only the game. :)

Big boobs are one thing, but to get big rocks are another. Sometimes, they look like rocks. When they are not only big, but obviously fake, they are "porn star boobs".

I think many Americans like big boobs because they are so in-your-face, attention-grabbing. People don't just want to look good. They want to be drop-dead "gorgeous". Largeness can give something an epic quality so some of these women are subconsciously trying to be like sex goddesses.

I've also noticed the nose jobs in Hollywood. It seems like everyone is getting a huge nose. Even people who have the perfect nose are getting theirs done. I couldn't understand why people with naturally perfect and proportional features would do that. Sometimes, it's ridiculous because you'll see this huge nose and then, the rest of the face. Nose. Face. People want to look striking. It's not good enough to be attractive. You've got to look the best you can. I guess being in Hollywood can make one feel insecure about their looks. Because you see all these beautiful people and then compare yourself. It's crazy when you see really established, respected actors get work done. Like, why would he want to get a nose job? A fifty-something man with an established career, not known for being the pretty boy, but playing average joe parts.

Large breasts are more explicit, so no surprise why men would like them. The same reason they like porn.

jstele - there was a series of articles a few years ago talking about the "pornification" of America. There are implants here as well but nowhere near the level of what I was used to in L.A.

When you see certain actresses close up and all the work they've done it's sad. I understand the pressure but if you get too much work done it's distracting. How can you act when you can't move your forehead?

Los Angelista said...

Someone I know just saw her on a train in Italy and said she was bragging about how famous she is. My friend had the same question as the title of your post, so clearly, she ain't all that, yet.

I do not get the bolt on boobs thing either. There's not enough jiggle to me to look attractive.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

los angelista - if someone has to tell people how famous they are, they might not that famous. ha

She was big here a while back with the Playboy thing. CS's friend went to school with her in this small town in Sweden.Good to see shes getting some work overseas. I always "wonder what ever happened to?"

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

glamah16 - what a small world. I never heard of her until I moved here. Other than Pamela Lee and Hef's ex "Girls Next Door", I don't know any of the Playmates. I think Playboy has become zzzzzzz. All the women look the same.
