Valentina Chepiga…Women Over 40

Here is a clip from the TV documentary special “WOMEN OVER 40: STILL CLIMBING THE HILL, NOT OVER IT.” The interview is with Valentina Chepiga who has won every major female bodybuilding championship (Ms. Olympia, Ms. International, etc.), and what makes it even more of an accomplishment is that she won these after she was 40.

Valentina is an inspiration to me and all of us at Female Muscle, she is beautiful in every way…it is hard to think she was ever embarrassed by her body.

Arnold’s Baby Mama Drama Doubles

Arnold Baby Mama 1 (The Maid)

The boy, Tanner Tousignant, graduated from Brea Olinda High School in Brea, Calif., last year, according to his Facebook profile. His mother, Tammy Tousignant, served as a stewardess on Schwarzenegger’s private jet for 20 years.
