Much respect for all three of these people.

Hats off to kindness!

Renoblondee said...

Good people!

auntliddy said...

Holla! Good vibes!

Alabama said...

Wow...Iman is amazing.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Alabama, having the Bowie money to pay her daily expenses no doubt supports her generosity, but it doesn't make it any less impressive.

I'm surprised it's only $10million, since she has a makeup line, which usually brings in megabucks. You can see it here: http://www.imancosmetics.com/

Kudos to all! That's great! :)

phoenix said...

They are all amazing. Great respect.

I have always loved Enrique for his beautifully unshaved face. Now for his personality, too, a little.

Carolyn said...

This brought tears to my eyes. I love the kindness blinds.

Charlotte. said...

And that's why I can't hate Iman for snagging my David.

Nutty - Iman also has an accessories line, which she sells on HSN.

It's strange to watch those, because sometimes she'll interject stories about curling up on the couch with her husband, eating popcorn and watching a movie. Three things I can never fathom David Bowie doing!

Tammy said...

Love the kindness blinds.

DewieTheBear said...

Very nice ones.

Alabama said...

Exactly, she took advantage of her situation. There are plenty of too rich celebs that could do the same but don't.

I say amazing, though, because of interviews I've seen/read and this just adds to her beautiful legacy.

The figure could be higher, I don't take these things as gospel.

Heartwarming. Thank you.

parissucksliterally said...

Fantastic!

Christy Turlington has always been my favorite model since 1985.....I love seeing that she is just as beautiful inside!

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Zeeky, didn't know about the HSN line!

I believe she has a daughter with Bowie, but I have never seen a pap shot of her.

Pink Cashmere said...

I love this! And they obviously do not do it for the publicity. I hate seeing celebrities volunteering at a soup kitchen at Christmas, with a Santa hat on, posing for the camera. If they did it at a random time of year then maybe it'd say something about their character.

Reese said...

Thanks for these reveals Enty. You've made my day.

annabella said...

thank you for these beautiful kindness blinds. they really are amazing and its wonderful that none of these people want any publicity for what they do. it makes one feel better about humanity.

Anna Nonymous said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE, so that's Iman's beauty secret, charity and lots of it. LOVE this!

just curious said...

Iman had money before Bowie. Bowie had to restructure his own finances a couple of years ago with the "Bowie Bonds" deal.

$10 million is a lot of money to give to a charity . Iman gives and keeps it on the DL unlike a lot of fucking celebrities who give and ensure everyone knows about it do to distract from their public shortcomings.

It's an act of charity not an obligation.

Jenn said...

Iman doesn't have to give up that money, but she does. Some have as much, but feel they've got to keep it. So, she's awesome for this and being married to Bowie.

Turlington and Enrique are wonderful too. Everybody can't be married to Bowie. :-)

I like the kindness reveals, gives a little positive balance to the gossip.

Diana G said...

LOVE!!!! <3

AndrewBW said...

Two thumbs up for each of these good folks.

abob said...

Well of course, being marries to Bowie makes you a goddess.

8=====D - RememberKermitGosnell said...

I must say I'm not surprised about Enrique Iglesias. He seems to be someone who knows hookers a lot and, even is he is probably in favor of LEGAL prostitution, forced one is something that someone like him would despise most (way more than normal people, who hate it, but don't think of it as the worst thing ever. I hope I have explained myself, but I don't know). He and his family are a lot eager to kindness things like this, and always blind item worthy.

The others I know less, but kudos to them too.

Del Riser said...

A wonderful reveal about three wonderful people, thank you.

Moonmaid said...

Turlington has done admirable work for a long time. Good for all three!

Moonmaid said...

And I don't think Iman ever forgot she grew up in Somalia, where even the privileged like her family had to see extreme poverty every day.

deree said...

This does my heart good to read! :)

Bubbles said...

Between her cosmetics line, clothing and accessories on HSN, Iman has had to make more than $10 million over 20 years. That's like she's only earning 500k a year over 20 years and even if she were just a figurehead, her name is worth a hell of a lot more than just 500k a year! And we're talking full cosmetic line and clothing and accessories here.

Maybe she gave $10 million, but perhaps it was a percentage of her overall income earned.

Amy in MI said...

Maybe she just donated her modeling money and not money from other ventures.

Scallywag said...

Perhaps she doesn't want people to know how much she has earned. That doesn't mean she didn't give it away, though.

V said...

I have a feeling Iman has given away much more than 10mil. I will forever love Iman and that husband of hers ;)

PotPourri said...

And if any of you are reading this, may God Bless every step you make in helping people who are not as fortunate as you!

Lisa said...

Who knows what other charities that she may be involved in also. Also she may just be donating her modeling money but whatever she is doing I respect her for it as there are so many out there who are doing nothing.

Dingle Barry said...

Kindness and generosity is always en vogue. Great reveal!

Dingle Barry said...

Are. Hate it when I slip up.

Mhdz said...

Iman always struck me as a class act. Meanwhile, Naomi Campbell is throwing more shit at her staff.

PugsterMom said...

Bless these angels.

Vikingwench said...

God bless them, each and every one.

Axel Carlisle said...

Love these three!

Iman is indeed a class act compared to Naomi C.

To this very day, I also still wish they had cast Iman as Storm and not Halle Berry. Iman would've been the perfect Storm.
