Kiwi made a new video. You can see it on funnyordie.com…
THE UGLY TRUTH is going to be in a theater near you on July 24th. Here’s a link to the official website, go there and get a little sneak peak of the movie.
Kiwi was in the press quite a bit last year. Actually, she was in the press a lot. It was an exciting, busy year for her. When I say a lot, I mean A LOT. If you have a few hours to spare you can read/watch all the exciting things that happened to her last year right here:

THE HOUSE BUNNY is now available on DVD. I highly suggest that you buy it. For those of you that have been living under a rock, here is the plot:
When Shelly, a Playboy bunny, is tossed out of the mansion, she has nowhere to go until she falls in with the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. The members of the sorority – who also have got to be the seven most socially clueless women on the planet – are about to lose their house. They need a dose of what only the eternally bubbly Shelley can provide… but they will each learn on their own to stop pretending to be what others want them to be and start being themselves.
Just to make things easier on you, I’m adding the link so you can purchase this gem right now.
Happy New Year!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any new news on Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith, but that’s coming to an end. I’m going to go all Sarah Palin on this blog (no, not Christian Fundamentalist) — I’m going to go rogue and get all mavericky in here.
Here’s what normally happens: Kiwi sends the updates of what she wants posted, then I do it, then she edits what I’ve done. But it’s a new year and a new Hope, so I’ll post how I want to.
WARNING: I are not always a good speler and my grammar don’t always be correct. So, enjoy the typos and the Kiwi updates.
** Okay, I had Kiwi approve this blog before I posted it – She may be small and cute, but she has the ability to be quite terrifying when she wants to be.
