Well, it all started when legendary producer Al Ruddy, producer of the Goldfather, visited his son at NYU in New York City.

Al noticed the poster of Gabrielle Reece on his son dorm room wall.

Al said to his son, "I didn't know you liked beach volleyball."

His kid said, "I don't. I like Gabrielle Reece."

Ruddy then told Brett Hudson and Burt Kearns of Frozen Pictures, "we ought to make a movie about beach volleyball."

Mean while, back at the Frozen office, someone had sent over all this footage of a pole dancing competition- exotic dancers, strippers, whatever you want to call them. Brett relates, "We were doing documentaries, pitching reality series, so I brought the tapes home and was amazed at the strength of these women, suspending themselves in midair. I showed my wife, who's a dancer," and she said it's simple. "These women aren't dancers. They're athletes." Bang! Strippers as beach volleyball players.

Sexy super model Angie Everhart shines in the movie as she plays the part of Julie, the stripper turned beach volleyball star as she faces down beach volleyball legend Gabrielle Reece on the sand.

"Before this movie", commented Angie Everhart "I never played volleyball before! I think everybody should get out there and do it. Our country would be a lot slimmer if everybody played volleyball. It's one of the hardest things I've done. I have bruises!"

"But I think it's more difficult playing a stripper", stated Angie Everhart. "To be an athlete is something that I've always wanted to be. You know, I love sports. I love anything extreme. And I kind of get into having battle wounds. It's kind of cool."

"But being a stripper was harder for me", commented Angie Everhart, "because they wanted me to do a lap dance and I think there's an art in doing lap dances and there's a way that the girls do it and I wasn't prepared to do a lap dance. It's kind of hard. And intimacy is involved when it's not an intimate situation. It makes it more difficult."

"The part of Christina Hansen was written specifically for Gabrielle Reece," says Burt Kearns of Frozen Pictures, who wrote and produced Cloud 9 with Brett Hudson and Academy Award winner Albert S. Ruddy. "We knew she was impressive on the sand, but who could have expected her presence on screen? She's a powerful athlete who combines the elegance of Uma Thurman with the grace of Charlize Theron. And she does action better than both combined."

"Beach volleyball is probably the sexiest women's sport," commented Gabrielle Reece. "So if you're trying to really maximize your sex appeal value, you would get strippers and beach volleyball players somehow moshing together."

Great Holiday Gifts Ideas


Hot Retro Nylon Stockings for a Sexy Holiday Look

From the romantic, nostalgic, retro pin up look to the hot sexy Japanese Anima perfect woman look, the new Love Me line of thigh high nylon stocking brings chic sensuality back.

Designed to make women want to wear nylon stockings and for men to fall at their feet, the entire collection is sensual and glamorous yet fun – making it one of this season’s must-have accessories. Especially under those wrap skirts, split skirts, mini skirts and hot pants that have been showing up in designers' collections.

The Love Me line of thigh high nylon stockings is unique and inspired by both the pin-up cartoons of 1950s and Japanese Manga comics and Japanese Anima.

Trendy or chic, the initial Love Me range is distilled into two distinct collections. The Pin-Up collection focuses on classic retro glamour featuring very chic personalized classic nylon stockings in a wide range of colors. There are 20-denier and 40-denier yarns, voile, tulle, designer effect and prints.

While the La Manga collection contains ultra-fashionable nylon stockings in bold prints and classic opaques. Love Me's vision of the Manga girl encompasses "a seductive posture, a warlike attitude, a virtually perfect body with long slender legs, a sexy and well stated wardrobe with daring and flashy colors!"

La Manga collection features bold prints nylon stockings designed to lure younger women into developing a passion for thigh high nylon stockings. A variety of soft 20-denier and 40-denier yarns, voile, tulle, patterns and prints are all carefully-finished with designer silicone tops which makes them not only stunning but comfortable. A pleasure to wear whatever the occasion, they can be relied upon to stay in place. Generous sizing makes them a godsend for ladies with long legs.

The full range of thigh high nylon stockings includes 21 different products offering a delicious choice of colors such as greedy pink and captivating black. Patterns and styles vary but attention to detail is intense.

Three leg packs – enticingly called ‘the three little rascals’ – add the reassurance of a pair and a spare. Many others come with a free gift - whether it be a garter or "seduction clip" - a range of interchangeable bows, hearts and charms that attach to the top and can be removed and kept forever.

Love Me launched it collection of fashion stockings exclusively through the international on line hosiery retailer StockingsHQ.com.

As David Bradwell of StockingsHQ.com explained: “For us, Love Me was more a case of Love at First Sight. StockingsHQ.com is dedicated to the pursuit of passionately beautiful hosiery.

The stunning designs from Love Me, beautifully made and attractively presented were therefore a must-have addition to our collection. The perfect accompaniment to this season’s trend for retro glamour, they are destined to put legs back into the spotlight.”
