Heather Graham and Rihanna

Global Cool would like to give a warm welcome to our newest writer Rebecca Sellitti – one of the wittiest and prettiest gals we know. She’ll be bringing you the hottest gossip from the land of celeb each week – enjoy…

I know folks tend to associate Heather Graham with ‘shagging’ (ON-screen, not off-screen, of course), but this week we’re going to settle for simply snogging the beautiful actress.

Heather Graham earns her eco points this week for bicycling around Rio while promoting her newest film, The Hangover III. No armored car for health-conscious Heather, as she chose to use her long legs to pedal a bike around the Ipanema coastline. Ms. Graham is obsessed with fitness, so it’s no surprise she decided to kill two birds with one stone and do her Carioca-sightseeing while simultaneously getting in an excellent workout!

View the recent pics of Graham strutting her 43 yr old stuff in a tiny two-piece and tell me cycling doesn’t do a body good! The woman has not aged a day since her acting stint as a roller-skating porn star! (Tip: Instead of shelling out money for the train-wreck that is The Hangover 3, trust me just put Boogie Nights on your Netflix/Lovefilm queue.)

We should all follow Heather’s lead and at least give cycling a try. If more of us traded our 4-wheel drives in for 10-speeds, not only would be putting less pollutant into the air, we’d also be giving ourselves a better shot at a fit and healthy body!

Prince CharlesMove over Harry and Wills, because this week I’m going to suggest getting hitched to The Prince of Wales. Charlie’s piece in The Huffington Post discussing the absolutely desperate need for global change toward the green, makes him marriage-worthy in my book…at least for this week. Although, given his track record in this department, I’m not expecting many takers.

Prince Charles touches on such issues as our wasteful water habits, and the negative global impact that’s resulted from the destruction of tropical rainforests.

I feel as if we’ve been talking about rainforest preservation for ages. I remember ‘Save the Rainforest’ being the theme of Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s prom in the movie of the same name… and that was made over 20 years ago! (BTW, check out that film to see future Oscar winner Hilary Swank play an airhead, and Ben Affleck as a basketball player!)

My point is that this time around I hope actual changes are on the horizon for the forests, and that this isn’t just more vague, political rhetoric. But, we’ll give ‘Charles (not yet) in Charge’ the benefit of the doubt, and say that he really is using everything in his arsenal to create a healthier planet for his first grandchild.

Rihanna has never made a secret of her love for snakeskin. From boots, to jumpsuits, to dresses, to pants… I’m pretty sure this Bad Girl has become public enemy number two for the slithering reptiles, coming in second only to the mongoose.  This week it’s an oversized python-print clutch Ri-Ri flashed during a night out in Paris, that has me seeing scarlet!

Now, I can understand Rihanna’s desire to distract from the trashtastic velour jumpsuit she’s sporting, but does she need to achieve that goal by sacrificing the lives of (judging by the massive size of that handbag) no less than 3 full-length pythons? Okay, I flunked herpetology so I may be way off with this guesstimation but I just simply don’t think that multiple serpents have to be skinned to complete Rihanna’s ‘Stripper Chic’ look!

I’m not one to go all ‘PETA’ on a person, but would it kill the songstress to at least TRY a faux snakeskin purse? This Stella McCartney shoulder bag looks nearly IDENTICAL to the one The Only Girl in the World singer was carrying, and not one living creature had to die for Stella’s super-chic purse to be produced!!

I wish Rihanna could be as kind to pythons as she is to snakes of the trouser variety!

And here she is in action minus any slaughtered-animal accessories, in fact she’s not wearing anything at all…

GC articles show you a few ways (the ones in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
