Betty Brosmer: Story About Journey from Pin-Up Model to Fitness Queen

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna



Who Is Betty Brosmer? Pin-Up Model To Fitness Queen, Everything About Her

Betty Chloe Brosmer was born in Pasadena, California on August 2, 1935. Her parents are Andrew Brosemer and Vendla Alvaria Pippenger.

She did, however, reside in Los Angeles after the age of 10. She was always interested in fitness as a youngster. She also used to practice weightlifting and muscle-building, which led to Brosmer being labeled as a “tomboy” at school. She, on the other hand, took a different path for herself by becoming a pin-up model. Those who had known her as a youngster were taken aback.

Early Life of Betty Brosmer

Brosmer’s photograph was published in the Sears & Roebuck catalog when she was 13 years old. The next year, she flew to New York City with her aunt, where she had several photographs taken by a professional photographer. Emerson Televisions purchased one of these photographs for commercial advertising reasons. That shot, however, became extremely famous and was used for a long period in national magazines as well.

She then began doing up and down between Los Angeles and New York City. Brosmer and her aunt moved to New York City in 1950, where she completed her schooling at George Washington High School in Manhattan. Simultaneously, she was working on expanding her photography portfolio, and over the following four years, Brosmer was featured on the front pages of several major publications of the period.

She’s also been featured in several romance novels, crime periodicals, and books. Brosmer has also won more than 50 beauty pageants. All of this occurred when she was in her adolescence. Brosmer was believed to have the ideal model figure. Because of her physical dimensions of 38″-18″-36″, she became recognized as one of the most prominent pin-up models with the ‘impossible waist.’ She was not only a beautiful and accomplished commercial model, but she was also a brilliant businesswoman.

She was the first model to seek rights to her photographs, which contributed to her being the highest-paid American pin-up model of the 1950s. She was also featured in magazines such as Time and Esquire.

Betty Brosmer rose to worldwide prominence after collaborating with pin-up photographer Keith Barnard. Barnard has previously worked with celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Brosmer went on to become the highest-paid model in the United States after signing with Barnard. According to her official website, Brosmer has been on over 300 magazine covers.

Betty Brosmer meets Joe Weider

Brosmer met her future husband, Joe Weider, through Barnard. She even posed for Weider magazine, which appeared in the December 1956 issue of Figure & Beauty. She gradually became Weider’s favorite model, and they began to see each other more regularly for professional reasons. However, because they shared a passion for exercise, they became acquainted. Finally, on April 24, 1961, they tied the knot.

Betty Brosmer was renamed Betty Weider after that. Joe Weider was married for the second time, and he already had a daughter from his prior marriage. Brosmer and Weider have no children together.

Weider, a fitness guru, founded the International Federation of Bodybuilders and the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition. Joe Weider, who subsequently became a magazine publisher, introduced a variety of fitness-related publications such as Men’s Health, Muscle & Fitness, and Shape. He also became a spokesman and fitness trainer for several health and fitness initiatives.

As a result, Brosmer was able to contribute by working as an assistant editor for Shape Magazine for over three decades. Brosmer’s career has evolved from that of a commercial model to that of a magazine writer. Not only that, but Brosmer is the co-author of several publications on fitness and physical activity. Brosmer used to write her columns called ‘Body By Betty’ and ‘Health By Betty.’ In the 1980s, the pair collaborated on two books: The Weider Book of Bodybuilding For Women and The Weider Body Book.

What is Betty Brosmer up to now?

Weider, Brosmer’s husband, died in 2013 at the age of 93. Betty Weider, on the other hand, is still going strong at the age of 85. Even now, she is engaged in promoting health and fitness awareness through Shape magazine and by writing pieces for Power and Beauty. Furthermore, Brosmer is an honorary member of the Olympic Fitness Committee.

Giants camp risers and fallers after preseason opener vs. Patriots

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna



Ravens Q&Amp;A: Olb Daelin Hayes On Learning From A Frustrating Rookie Season, Reuniting With Kyle Hamilton, The Importance Of Community Service And More

Brian Daboll said Monday that he intends to play his starters again in Sunday’s second preseason game against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals.

But Daboll and his staff also are knee-deep in evaluations of their entire roster coming off their preseason opener in New England.

They have to cut down to 85 players by 4 p.m. Tuesday and then to 80 on Aug. 23, with the cut to 53 looming on Aug. 30. So here are some risers and fallers to watch based on performances in practices and their first game:

-Former Indiana teammates DL Ryder Anderson and LB Micah McFadden, a pair of undrafted rookies, both made plays in the preseason opener and have impressed the coaching staff.

Anderson, 23, made a great block, as did rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger, on Jashaun Corbin’s 34-yard kick return in New England. He got a great push to make a run stop on a 1-yard loss by Patriots running back Kevin Harris. And he showed great hustle on a fourth quarter tackle downfield on Pats WR Kristian Wilkerson as corner Michael Jacquet held him up.

Furthermore, Anderson, offensive lineman Will Holden and tight end Austin Allen all were practicing long-snapping after Monday’s practice. So that could be one more thing he proves he can do to Daboll and the coaches.

McFadden, 22, got a shoutout from Daboll last Friday for “making some good instinctive plays” in the game. This is interesting because defensive coordinator Wink Martindale had announced early in camp that “the inside backers, I’ve told them this, it’s an open competition. Someone needs to go up and grab that spot.” Blake Martinez has been out. Tae Crowder and rookie sixth-round pick Darrian Beavers have been running with the ones. And it would be a huge boost if McFadden could keep pushing the holdover Crowder, who ideally wouldn’t be starting.

In New England, McFadden had a great fill on a Pierre Strong run in the second quarter. He combined with Quincy Roche and corner Cor’Dale Flott to tackle Harris for a one-year gain in the third. And after losing coverage on an 11-yard completion to tight end Lil’Jordan Humphrey, McFadden responded to tackle Harris for a 1-yard gain on the next play. He also was right there in pursuit helping Roche on a nice special teams kickoff tackle.

Beavers showed great recognition in pass coverage and pursuit on two different Patriots dump-offs to the running back Harris.

– Defensive tackle Chris Hinton, an undrafted rookie out of Michigan, has struggled in the early part of camp. And his failure to finish a tackle near the sideline in the fourth quarter – on the play where Anderson cleaned up Wilkerson, with Jacquet there – was a confusing piece of tape to evaluate. As Anderson rises on the depth chart, Hinton does not.

– No. 7 overall pick Evan Neal seems to be having a tough time. He was culpable on Daniel Jones’ sack in New England. He got blown up by Oshane Ximines once Monday. He got smoked by Azeez Ojulari in an individual rep, and seems to be lunging at times in his pass sets. And Neal even appeared to be laboring and favoring his left ankle at one point. It’s more common that rookies experience growing pains than not, but the Giants need him to stay healthy and continue showing improvement as August continues.

– Undrafted rookie RB Jashaun Corbin racked up a team-high 125 total yards in New England. The Florida State product had six carries for 23 yards (long of five), five catches for 28 yards (long of 10), and three kick returns for 74 yards (long of 34). Saquon Barkley, Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell and Antonio Williams all present as ahead of Corbin on the RB depth chart so far. But I think his kick return value, plus his speed and versatility as a back, makes him an intriguing player to continue watching this summer.

– Backup QB Tyrod Taylor showed against the Patriots what makes him valuable and unique on this roster. Facing a jailbreak pressure from his right, Taylor deftly stepped forward, slid right and hit Brightwell streaking from left to right for an 11-yard gain. Taylor also showed his calm, veteran presence on a step-up and 11-yard strike to Richie James on a 3rd and 2. He pump-faked and changed the platform of his throw on a 7-yard completion to Corbin. And he hit James for a 7-yard touchdown on a great route by the wideout. It wasn’t perfect, for sure. He underthrew a wide open Collin Johnson on what could have been a massive gain. And he threw an interception in Monday’s practice to corner Nate Meadors in zone coverage. But fans saw in New England what we’ve seen in practices: He tends to make plays.

– Injured offensive lineman Jamil Douglas had not impressed at center this training camp, but I thought he presented as an imposing and possibly punishing guard while pulling on two Giants 7-yard runs in the Patriots game. That provides hope that he might be able to contribute once he rehabs his ankle injury. Douglas at least was seen on the side of the field Monday, as opposed to not being present at all.

– Other random game notes: running back Antonio Williams made a great kickoff tackle at the start of the second half. So did tight end Chris Myarick on a fourth quarter punt coverage … Flott had a nice stick on the Patriots’ Humphrey for a 2-yard gain in the early third quarter … Undrafted rookie corner Darren Evans looks the part. He had a nice breakup against the threes in Monday’s practice, and he made a very good tackle on the Patriots’ strong in the third quarter. But he was slow to move his feet on a 32-yard completion he allowed to Tre Nixon in New England, and he was bailing out on another 9-yarder to Wilkerson. Would love to see the big, long, athletic corner step up in a secondary that needs people to assert themselves … I thought second-team left tackle Devery Henderson played very well in New England despite struggling often in Giants practices to that point. Holden, Garrett McGhinn and Max Garcia all had good moments, too. McGhinn did great work at guard especially on a 5-yard Williams run and his 2-yard TD run … starting center Jon Feliciano didn’t seem to get much push on Barkley’s first and second down runs in the red zone on the Giants’ first drive.

Practice notes

The Giants were down 22 injured players from their 87-man roster for Monday’s practice and had only 10 healthy offensive linemen. Daboll said Feliciano, edge Elerson Smith and edge Jihad Ward had avoided serious injuries from Sunday’s practice, but they still sat out.

“They probably won’t go today, but they’ll be alright,” Daboll said before practice.

Jones completed several passes to rookie Wan’Dale Robinson, but he was picked off on a tipped throw intended for Robinson by camp standout corner Darnay Holmes. Saquon Barkley rattled off a big run, but there was a flag thrown for a hold up front.

Linebacker Cam Brown and defensive lineman Justin Ellis returned to practice in some form. But Brightwell wasn’t in uniform, joining the laundry list of guys on the shelf.

Corner Adoree Jackson appeared to receive a veteran rest day. Zyon Gilbert replaced him with the first-team defense at outside corner. Safety Julian Love said he liked Gilbert’s game and thinks he’s a sneaky athlete.

The team was in pads, but it wasn’t a particularly grueling or high-energy practice. Safety Trenton Thompson appeared to tweak his ankle during kickoff drills but finished practice. Barkley fell awkwardly and came off the field at one point, but returned and rattled off his big run on his next carry.

The first offensive line group from left to right was Andrew Thomas, Garcia, Ben Bredeson, Mark Glowinski and Neal. The second line was Roy Mbaeteka, Henderson, McGhin, Holden and Eric Smith. McGhinn went down at one point but finished practice.

Man Pays Tribute To His Late Father With Dramatic Weight Loss

CHICAGO– This man who lost 285 pounds has gone viral on social media for his incredible weight loss transformation story.

Dustin Brown, who goes by @losetogain3 on TikTok, says he’s always struggled with weight. “I was always the overweight kid,” Dustin says. “I used food for comfort, for anxiety and depression as an escape.”

In 2004, Dustin lost his father but shortly before had made him a promise. “I told him I was going to make him proud and get my health back,” Dustin explains. Between 2006 and 2009, Dustin lost 250 pounds. “I used the pain of my father’s death as motivation for this,” Dustin adds. “But I didn’t do it in a sustainable way.” Over the next few years, he gained weight.

In 2017 Dustin started another weight loss journey. “I forgave myself for coming back to this position,” he explains.

Since then, Dustin has lost 285 pounds and is now sharing videos of his weight loss transformation on TikTok. “Weight loss is just a math equation,” Dustin said. “But mentally, that’s the real fight,” he adds.

He hopes his platform will create a community that inspires and uplifts others who are trying to make positive, healthy change in their own lives.

Angelos family lawsuits raise prospects for sale of Orioles, but John Angelos wants to keep majority control in family’s hands, sources say

Angelos Family Lawsuits Raise Prospects For Sale Of Orioles, But John Angelos Wants To Keep Majority Control In Family’s Hands, Sources Say

The lawsuits that have revealed the Angelos family’s struggles over the control and future of the Orioles laid out preparations for a sale of the team, including the hiring of a law firm and investment bank, but team chairman and CEO John Angelos wants to retain his family’s control of the club, according to people familiar with his thinking.

Angelos, 55, prefers to sell a piece of the Orioles while continuing to retain his family’s majority control, two people told The Baltimore Sun in interviews. His ailing father, Peter Angelos, led a group that bought the club in 1993 and owns a clear majority of the shares, but it’s not publicly known how much more than 51% is in his hands.

John Angelos supports keeping the club under its local ownership, avoiding the upheaval of an ownership change and building on the success of a team that has a top-ranked minor league system and is in the surprising position of contending for a postseason berth, they said.

The two people have direct knowledge of John Angelos’ intentions, and one of them is a team official. They spoke on condition of anonymity because no decisions have been made about ownership changes. They cautioned that the situation was fluid and that many scenarios, including an outright sale, were possible.

“He does want to stay,” one of the people said.

John Angelos has publicly vowed that the team will be in the city “as long as Fort McHenry is standing watch over the Inner Harbor.”

Team spokeswoman Jennifer Grondahl said she was not immediately available Monday afternoon to provide comment.

Peter Angelos, 93, is incapacitated due to health problems, according to documents filed in the lawsuits. In 2017, he granted power of attorney to his wife, Georgia Angelos, who is now 80.

The dispute over the future of the family’s best-known asset spilled into public in June, when Louis Angelos filed suit in Baltimore County Circuit Court against his mother and brother over what he characterized in court documents as John Angelos’ attempt to take control and ownership of their fortune. He alleged John Angelos stalled and thwarted an earlier plan to sell the team, unilaterally torpedoing interest from “one highly credible group of buyers.”

When Georgia Angelos responded with her own legal filing, those documents said her husband indicated that the team “should be sold on his death so Georgia could enjoy the great wealth they had amassed together.” And her attorneys indicated she was preparing to do so, writing she “had retained Goldman Sachs and Jones Day to provide investment banking and legal services in connection with the sale of the Orioles.” It’s not clear from the legal filings when the firms were retained.

That seemed to further raise the prospect of the family getting out of the baseball business. But Georgia Angelos’ suit also said her husband believed any sale of the team should be her decision. And it referred to efforts by John to sell “some or all of the club,” rather than specifying only a sale of the family’s entire share.

Any sale by the Angelos family is less likely while Peter Angelos is alive because that would result in steep capital gains taxes. A sale after his death could save the family hundreds of millions of dollars.

Teams may retain investment banking firms to handle even partial sales, and Major League Baseball vets potential owners, even those seeking less than a controlling stake. So, the hiring of Goldman Sachs wouldn’t by itself indicate preparations for a sale of Peter Angelos’ majority share.

Jeffrey Nusinov and Paul Raschke, attorneys for Louis Angelos, did not respond to messages from The Sun seeking comment. Georgia Angelos could not be reached through the team or the family.

The original buyers joining Peter Angelos in 1993 included the novelist Tom Clancy and tennis-star-turned-broadcaster Pam Shriver. The current group of 17 owners includes Peter Angelos; John Angelos; Louis Angelos; Clancy’s estate; his ex-wife, Wanda King; Shriver; filmmaker Barry Levinson, and philanthropist Harvey Meyerhoff, according to Major League Baseball’s website. After Clancy’s 1999 divorce, The Sun reported he’d split his 24% stake in the team evenly with King.

The breakdown of who owns how much isn’t publicly known. “It is not something we disclose,” said Major League Baseball spokesman Pat Courtney.

With her husband incapacitated, Georgia Angelos controls a trust that contains his assets and she is effectively the team owner, having the same oversight authority Peter Angelos did. But John’s preferences matter because he is closely aligned with his mother and is also the “control person” designated by Major League Baseball to make decisions for the Orioles. He’s been chair and CEO of the team since 2020.

After his father’s death, John Angelos would consider selling a piece of the team, according to those familiar with his goals. They said he would like to diversify the family’s investments financially, while enhancing the diversity of the Orioles partnership with stakeholders from a variety of industries and varying racial and ethnic backgrounds.

“When people think about a sale of a team, they forget there is a minority shareholder group,” one of the people said.

The team official told The Sun that under ownership by John Angelos, the Orioles would further engage with the community in different ways, such as by becoming increasingly active in programs in Baltimore’s public schools. He has initiated fitness, healthy living and other programs for youth in Sarasota, where the team has its spring training headquarters.

Also, John Angelos has publicly expressed interest in Oriole Park hosting full-fledged concerts more frequently; it’s held its first two just in the last three years. His father was skeptical of such a use for the ballpark, telling The Sun in 2000 that he was “not going to have it become some kind of honky tonk for various and sundry rock ‘n’ roll bands.”

Peter and Georgia Angelos were widely seen in the community, making large public donations to and appearances at institutions such as University of Baltimore, hospitals and cultural organizations; the younger generation has been less involved. Peter, Georgia and Louis Angelos live in Baltimore County. John Angelos has homes in Baltimore and in Nashville with his wife, Margaret Valentine, a songwriter who owns a music management company, Pound It Out Loud.

There would be interest in obtaining pieces of the Orioles even without majority control, said Marc Ganis president and founder of Sportscorp Ltd., a Chicago-based sports consulting firm that has been involved in a number of team sales.

“In some cases, it’s a broader set of prospects. It’s a bigger universe that can invest $50 [million] or $100 [million] or $200 [million] or $300 million versus $2 billion,” Ganis said. “The universe is broader, but the interest is less, because you’re not looking at control.”

Forbes values the Orioles more than $1.37 billion. Peter Angelos and his fellow investors bought the team just over 29 years ago at auction for $173 million. At the time, that was nearly $50 million more than had ever been paid for a baseball team.

Further complicating the club’s future is that it has yet to sign a new lease binding it to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The original lease with the state began April 1, 1992, and was to expire at the end of 2021. The parties agreed in February 2021 to extend the agreement through Dec. 31, 2023, with the club retaining the right to exercise a one-time, five-year extension by Feb. 1, 2023.

Maryland Stadium Authority chairman Thomas Kelso said Friday that lease negotiations were ongoing, but declined further comment. The authority worked with the team and the General Assembly this year to pass a law that now allows the stadium authority to borrow up to $1.2 billion to pay for stadium improvements — $600 million each for the Orioles and Ravens. It specifies, however, that no bonds can be issued without a lease in place.

Ex-Nfl Star Aqib Talib'S Brother Turns Himself In After Youth Soccer Coach'S Murder

LANCASTER, Texas — The brother of retired NFL cornerback Aqib Talib turned himself in to authorities on Monday after police identified him as a suspect in the shooting death of a coach during a Texas youth football game.

Yaqub Salik Talib is a suspect in the Saturday night shooting that killed a man, Lancaster, Dallas-area police said. Authorities have yet to identify the man, but his family and friends say he was a coach.

Yaqub Talib’s attorney, Clark Birdsall, told The Associated Press that his client “mourns the tragic death but turned himself in this morning so he could have a chance to tell his side of the story.” Birdsall declined to elaborate on Talib’s side of the story.

Yaqub Talib is the brother of Aqib Talib, a five-time Pro Bowler who announced his retirement in 2020. Aqib Talib was named last month as a contributor to Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football.”

Dallas TV station WFAA reported that the brothers coach the North Dallas United Bobcats, a youth soccer team.

DEA Dragons youth team coaches identified the slain man as coach Mike Hickmon, the WFAA reported. Dragons president Mike Freeman said the dispute started when Hickmon went to get a football and someone pushed him away.

“I don’t know how to explain it to the kids. This is the part I’m stuck on right now. How do I explain it to them. Why?” Freeman said. “It’s something these kids will remember for the rest of their lives.”

Ravens Cb Marcus Peters, Who Missed 2021 Season With Torn Acl, Returns To Practice

Ravens veteran cornerback Marcus Peters, who missed the entire 2021 season with a torn ACL, returned to practice Monday, becoming the second player to come off the team’s physically-unable-to-perform list.

Peters passed his physical and is expected to participate in individual drills as he works his way back from a knee injury he suffered last September. Before the injury, Peters only missed five games in six seasons.

Peters’ return to the field comes a week after running back J.K. Dobbins (torn ACL) returned to practice. Meanwhile, left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle), outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (Achilles tendon), safety Ar’Darius Washington (foot) and running back Gus Edwards (torn ACL) remain on the PUP list.

Peters, who is in the final year of his three-year, $42 million contract extension he signed in December 2019, was traded to the Ravens from the Los Angeles Rams midway through the 2019 season. A first-round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015, Peters is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time first-team All-Pro.

Peters leads the NFL in takeaways (39), interceptions (31), interception return yards (814) and defensive touchdowns (seven) since debuting in 2015. In 2020, Peters started in 14 games, totaling 52 tackles, four forced fumbles and a team-best four picks.
