On Sunday 6th January 2008, Actor and dog lover Neil Morrissey joined with over 100 dogs and their owners as they walked from Battersea Dogs Home to the centre of Battersea Park, to launch the Dog Adoption Drive.
Last year 7800 dogs in the UK were put to sleep for want of a home and dog re-homing centres receive no government funding. In response, The Dog Adoption drive aims to raise £500,000 by the end of March 2008 to benefit Dog Rescue Centres across the UK.
This Saturday, January 12th, Lifetime is proud to present the debut of its all new made-for-TV movie, “Queen Sized.” Starring recent Hairspray break-out star, Nikki Blonsky, “Queen Sized” tells the touching true story of an unpopular, overweight high school girl named Maggie who is nominated for homecoming queen as a cruel joke by the school’s “popular girls.”
Sick and tired of being teased about her weight, Maggie decides to stand up to the bullies and stay in the competition… and becomes a school hero in the process! Her new-found celebrity, however, quickly goes to her head and causes a whole new slew of problems as Maggie’s old friends begin to dislike the person she is turning into.
In the end, Maggie is faced with the difficult decision of deciding whether to embrace the superficial “popular girl” she is becoming… or stay true to her original friends and herself.
“Queen Sized” premieres this Saturday, January 12 at 9 pm et/pt only on Lifetime!
