Rule 5 Saturday - Alana de la Garza - The Forever Girl

In the deep mid-winter TV drought the other night, I happened to find myself watching "Forever", the highly fanciful show about a medical examiner blessed with apparent immortality.  Weird premise, and one that requires him to be killed with some regularity, apparently.  I noticed a familiar woman, serving as the lead detective, and had to look her up.
Alana de la Garza (born June 18, 1976) is an American actress. She is best known for her role as ADA Connie Rubirosa on the NBC television series Law & Order. In 2014, she began starring as Det. Jo Martinez in the ABC series Forever.
Yep, I remembered her from Lawn Order. Good enough for a Rule 5 post.
De la Garza was born in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio, to a Mexican-American father and an Irish-American mother. She was raised in El Paso, Texas. She won the "Miss Photogenic" title in the Miss El Paso Teen USA local beauty pageant. . . .
In 2001, she was featured in the music video for Brooks & Dunn's song "Ain't Nothing 'bout You". She obtained the role of Rosa Santos on the soap opera, All My Children, guest-starring roles in JAG, Charmed, Two and a Half Men, (2004) and Las Vegas. She starred as Maria in the short-lived television series The Mountain, in which she received high marks for her acting.
. . .
In 2006, she joined the cast of NBC's Law & Order during the premiere of Season 17, portraying Assistant District Attorney Connie Rubirosa. Her performance as ADA Rubirosa has been widely praised by critics.
In the 171st issue of his blogging Magazine, GOODSTUFF is featuring the unearthly beauty of Persis Kambatta. I swear his intertube has tubes mine doesn't. Linked at Pirate's Cove in this week's "Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup." Also linked at the American Power Blog in "New Year's Sunday Rule 5"; thanks Donald!

  1. LOL - "I swear his intertube has tubes mine doesn't"

    Yes, I know there still exist TV repairmen, but they are a dying breed. Our throw-away society has reached a point where, when a TV goes on the fritz, it’s time to just chunk it and buy a new one.- kidding

    thanks for linking to my intertubes

  2. Forever is a bit of fluff I have avoided until recently. Not only is the lead character apparently immortal, but every time he "dies", he ends up naked in the East river. I suppose if it were me, I'd find a way to rent some sort of storage locker down there, stuffed with spare clothes and towels...with a combination lock!

  3. Forever. Never heard of it before.

    Looks like a "Re-Boot" of "New Amstedam"

  4. Hermosa mujer de exuberantes formas anatómicas, que expresan su belleza en unas generosas tetas y en un torso que desciende voluptuoso hasta agotarse en un regio trasero, exornado por preciosas nalgas, custodias lascivas de una cálida hendidura natural, incitadora a celebrar los lujuriosos rituales de Eros, en una suprema cópula.
