Amanda no longer models though she still looks as beautiful as she does in her old modeling pics. Here's a selection of her pics brought over from the old forum.

Seriously, Chazz - you have some pictures here that I've not actually seen myself in a few years! Some of them I forgot even existed! Nice collection!

And thank you for your kind words. Yes, I've certainly lead an interesting life. It's been one wild ride after another honestly.

Hey Manda. http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1276603710.gif Your modeling pics are some of my all time favorites. It just proves that making it big also requires a lot of luck. You're just as beautiful as any big time model. Thanks for taking the time to re-register.

Posted by: Lady Blackwood Jun 20 2010, 04:31 PM
It's my pleasure! You've been so kind to me. I like keeping up with this project and the many lovely redheads out there.

Your words are so flattering that you make me blush though. Thank you.

I'll try to ease up on the flattery. tongue.gif In real life I'm not such a silver tongued devil. I'm really quite shy actually. When I meet pretty redheads I'm the one blushing. laugh.gif

It makes me happy that you're a fan of this site and you've been really kind as well. Also thanks again for linking to here.

How did I overlook this awesome video?


Posted by: Lady Blackwood Jul 23 2010, 08:50 PM
OMFG I completely forgot that even existed! One of my best friends in the whole world made that video a couple of years ago now. I loved it when he did it, and I loved it just now when I watched it for the first time in over a year. That was so funny!!!

Posted by: ViableX Jul 23 2010, 09:36 PM
Wow, she is quite attractive for sure!

I like you, chazz, blush when comes to the opposite sex hehe.

I kinda figured it would have to have been a close friend to have access to all those pics. biggrin.gif He did a really good job with it. I hope you have a wonderful time in Scotland(I saw that you mentioned you were leaving on your flickr page).

Amanda, out of our posted shots, which would you say was your favorite? Or perhaps share one of your memories from "back in the day"?

I love reading about what one's thinking while getting shot. With a camera.

You are a very lovely lady, and pretty to boot.

Thanks for linking to us, and for letting your pics be seen here.

Posted by: chazz Nov 9 2010, 12:56 PM
I haven't checked out Amanda's blog in awhile so I checked it out today. Sadly, she's going through some extremely tough times. Amanda, if you're reading this I want you to know that I truly hope things get better for you. I'm sure that goes for everyone here as well.

Thank you very, VERY much!!! I'm still around, but as chazz said, I really don't model much anymore. My last photoshoot was September of 2009... I think I'm having withdrawals. I'm going to have to get a remote for my camera and just take some of myself on my adventures so I have something - anything - to share!

Posted by: Lady Blackwood Feb 24 2011, 04:31 AM
I really am quite genuinely overwhelmed at the responses on this page! Thank you, Everyone. For a 'has been' this is a fabulous gift.

Jo - as for knowing what I'm thinking, seriously you might be interested in my blog. LOL!! Ladyblackwood.blogspot.com - and as for which photo is my favorite - I'm going to dedicate my very next blog entry to YOU and the people who ask me that question from time to time.

Thank you both so very much!!!!

You guys have truly inspired me. I've now decided to tell the whole story as to how I got into modeling and acting, starting with the different photographers I've worked with in the past, which were my favorites, what other models should watch out for and what to be careful of. So far I've got 4 photoshoots up. Stop on by, Guys! And Candle - how could I ever mind?! I live for the comments!

Posted by: chazz Mar 1 2011, 12:16 PM
It's interesting to read about the story behind those beautiful photos. I look forward to reading more about your modeling and acting on your blog.

Will & Grace. I'm impressed.

For those interested you can view Amanda's appearance on Will & Grace here:

http://www.megavideo.com/?v=9ZAKF1G3

Fast Forward to the 8:40 mark. She's also in the scene at the 18:16 mark where she gets more face time. Pretty awesome.

Looks like the Will & Grace episode was removed due to copyright infringement. I guess they're just like YouTube with the copyright bs.

I actually replaced the blog again. I did have to take it down for a bit because of a cyber-attack from a bully but I refuse to live in hiding. It just isn't worth it. I also have other blogs up now, too! It's an exciting time for me... I have finally started publishing a Hookfoot the Pirate Cat blog with his Ships Log entries.

I found the episode of Will & Grace you were in on a torrent site but it's not the best quality. I put your 2 scenes together in Windows Live Movie Maker. I didn't want to put up the whole episode because of copyright issues. It's only 29 megabytes so it's a quick download.

Posted by: chazz Aug 27 2014, 09:07 PM
I saw the HQ versions posted to her flickr account. I was going to post the set here but I didn't want to pull copyrighted photos without her permission. Guess she won't mind if I posted a link to her flickr account.

We don't want to get her disqualified. I posted on crazy redhead ladies wall. Her page has like 30,000 likes. It's already getting some results. Voting is til November 1st. If Jcink releases the new alert system I'll send out a mass email and also mention to help amanda out. I don't want to send out a mass email unless I have a main reason or people will get pissed off and say I'm spamming.

Or maybe not.

"Greetings Lady Blackwood!" Thanks to our mutual friend, I am now at your disposal.

Amanda might not be on for awhile, she's pretty busy with her job.

She's slipped to 8th place. Hopefully she can stay within the top 15 so she gets to go.

liked- you should share it on those 'contest' like sites....



Posted by: chazz Oct 31 2014, 01:50 AM
She should have done a YouTube promotional video. I thought about that idea a little too late.

I posted to Shirley Manson's facebook page wall a pic of Amanda where she looks exactly like Shirley. If those who read this can go to Shirely's facebook page and like or comment on that post it would help a lot. I know it's asking a lot but today's the last day to vote.

Unfortunately I thought of it a little too late. You probably would have been the only one to have done that too. It worked out in the end at least.

I'm still thinking it would be fun to put one together of my two latest photoshoots. Kinda funny, too... I might work on that tonight.

I bet she has some great stories to tell from that event. I hope she stops by sometime and fills us in. She gets to do a photo session which should be very interesting.

My fragile ego has been in jeopardy for years. Rejections became a part of my life, especially once I hit 30 and my metabolism slowed down. I've been incredibly fortunate to have accomplished as much as I have, but there's been so much that I've been held back from doing - mostly because of myself.

I've had this fear all my life of going into strange places if I'm alone. It's nerve wracking for me to walk into a grocery store I've never been into before if I'm alone. I wouldn't shop at "Sprouts" market for years because I'd never gone into one and couldn't overcome my phobia in order to do so. Well, sometimes there's something I want badly enough to face my fears and fight for what I want. This past weekend I did just that.

As a complete stranger with not one friend in the entire area, I flew from Los Angeles to Denver in order to attend the 1940's Ball. Alone. In a place I'd never been. But I'd been obsessed with the 1940's all my life. And I was one of the 20 finalists for the Pinup competition at 8:30pm - also something I've never done.

I was more than nervous. I was petrified and intimidated. I was facing a challenge before me, and that was only the door ahead! But as I waited in line, I befriended a lovely older couple who bonded with me instantly. As a safety net, I attached myself to these two people who told me they also didn't know anybody inside. The three of us became friends rather quickly.

As we stood around the dance floor watching everyone swing away the time to a Glen Miller tribute orchestra, Glen Miller walked down off of the stage with his trombone in hand to take MY hand and kiss it. He then thanked me for coming.

I would be remiss if I didn't explain that already hundreds of people were there dancing and watching. I was one of the crowd, and yet Glen Miller (the man portraying Glen Miller) reached out to me of all people. I was not only shocked but thrilled! I already was in an atmosphere filled with 1940's dresses and hair and military uniforms and Glen Miller music... Having the Orchestra leader exit the stage in order to greet ME of all people just completely blew me away. I won't lie, I swooned.

My two new friends then decided to hit the dance floor for a slow song, and a stranger asked me to dance. Of course I didn't decline. I love to swing dance, even if I'm not very good at it. I danced with a few different people, but as I stood along the sidelines watching my two friends dance, a man in a 1940's military uniform asked me to dance. Well, history was made. We hit it off and became instant friends. When he found out I had gone all the way out to Denver from LA just for that event, he took me under his wing and introduced me to everybody he could think of, and even a few he didn't! He helped to set the event up every year and even helped one of the most talented photographers in Denver with shooting the Pinup calendar - so his connections were limitless!


I danced the night away, met a hundred people and lost my first two friends in the crowd! Eventually it was time for the pinup competition, and I could see who I was up against. They were all stunning! They wore evening gowns and elbow length gloves. I was in a knee length dress and a feathered hat! They had four inch heels. I had on a pair of 70 year old practical shoes. They were young and thin, I was - well... not so much of either anymore. They were all beautiful! All I really had going for me was my red hair - and even that wasn't exclusive to me. To make it worse, the other redhead was a GORGEOUS Burlesque dancer, well known in the community and the 1940's circuit. I didn't stand a chance!

They lined the contestants up in alphabetical order by first name, which meant I was first. I hate being first. I'd much rather have a moment to be observant and learn from the mistakes of others, but I certainly wasn't going to let a little thing like being first get in my way. I'd come this far and I didn't exactly have stage fright. So what if I didn't look like a traditional Pinup girl? I had a great 70 year old dress I didn't mind showing off. I had come all the way from Los Angeles to do this, and I had used the Pinup competition as my excuse to go. I made a commitment. I needed to follow through.



"I won't get picked" I told the pretty young lady beside me. She was second in line.

"Are you crazy," she said straight back to me. "You look great! If they DON'T pick you I'd be surprised."

"You're sweet, but there's no way. I used to model. I know competition when I see it," I gestured to the other 15 ladies lined up behind us, "and I'm certainly not it." I laughed, and so did she.



"You're still crazy," she said.

Suddenly it was time to go. One at a time we filed across the floor in front of the stage before hundreds of onlookers. People cheered and applauded loudest for their favorites, and of course I received very little applause. Everyone else had their own cheering section. I was a stranger to everyone but the soldier I had been dancing with, and he had left suddenly when a family member of his wasn't feeling well. I was alone.


They narrowed it down to five, the young lady said to us. We were waiting for them to decide which five. I had been fighting with my hat for an hour and finally I just took it off.

"What are you doing," the young lady beside me asked.

"I'm taking off my hat. I'm done up there. I won't be going back up."

"Who says? You never know!"

It wasn't even a full minute later when I was being ushered back onto the stage as one of the five finalists! But one of the judges just happened to be a friend of the dancing soldier, so I didn't know how much of this was a polite gesture to the "out of town girl who traveled so far" and how much was a genuine vote for me. Thankfully I got to know that judge quite a bit better later on in the evening, and now I know my answer.


When they announced the third place winner, there was a tie. Since there were only five people on the stage at that point, myself included, I knew that only one of the five would be exiting the stage with nothing in their hands. I was completely prepared for that moment. The others actually dressed as Pinup girls for a living! I was lucky to stand in their shadows.

They announced the second place winner, and I suddenly knew without a shadow of a doubt that the belly dancing burlesque gal had it in the bag. She was walking home with the six VIP passes to the next event and that amazing photoshoot I desperately wanted. That photoshoot was the whole reason I had entered the contest in the first place! The photographer was incredibly talented and I'd always wanted to do a proper 1940's photoshoot. But I knew that young lady in the peach dress who was so popular among the more than 400 people watching intently would be walking away with that glorious package. The lucky dame...

"And the winner of the 2014 Miss White Christmas National US Pinup Competition is...." the audience faked a drum roll by slapping their hands and stomping their feet against the floor before us...

...and you know the rest of the story.

Thank you so much, Guys. I truly love you for the support you've shown me over the years. Thank you.

I can relate to a lot of of that stuff. I've been dealing with social anxiety and anxiety in general since I was a kid. What sucks now is I have to deal with cancer on top of my anxieties.

You've met your anxiety head on and won. Glad you had a good time at that ball. I knew you would win once you got there. You had the vintage look down to a t.

Darling, I'm so sorry you have cancer. Stay strong and FIGHT with everything you have! Some of us out here in the world LOVE YOU and believe in you. Just like you've always believed in me. Hang in there! And please reach out if you need ANYTHING at all!

Thanks for the kind words. I have stage 3b colon cancer. A tumor was removed from my colon in July and I've been undergoing chemo treatments since late August. Last week I discovered a small hard nodule in my right upper abdomen. Had a catscan done yesterday and apparently it's not cancerous so that is very good news. Oncologist is doing a pet scan to be extra cautious. It's will have to be removed however but i'm hoping it's not a big deal due to it's size and location. I have 2 chemo treatments left. So I'm lucky, I seemed to have dodged a bullet.

With the news of Stuart Scott's passing all over the tv I was sort of freaking out because I didn't know if the nodule was cancerous. I was literally crying tears of joy when the oncologist called me.

Your concern is very much appreciated. Hopefully I'll be out of the woods soon with this. It's been a rough 6 months.

Amanda, you should start a Facebook fan page where you could post your modeling pics and maybe some new ones as well. I can then ask all my Facebook redhead page followers to like your page. Just a suggestion.

You know, these days I'm so far removed from the modeling thing that I'd probably never remember to update it. My real passion now is my writing (I'm R. C. Stevens) and I have an author page on Facebook, but I keep forgetting to update that, too. Maybe one of these days I'll loose the weight and I'll get back into modeling. LOL!

Posted by: chazz Mar 19 2015, 06:38 PM
Maybe you'll become the next J.K. Rawlings. smile.gif Honestly Facebook fanpages are more trouble than they're worth anyway.

You should work on your drawings. I really like the ones you posted a http://redheadedgoddessforums.com/index.php?showtopic=2519. Not that your writing isn't as good, I'm just more of a visual person when it comes to that stuff. I haven't got an artistic bone in my body but I know talent when I see it and you definitely have that.

Amanda and her hubby are going to be filming a cooking show. You can help support her by liking the Facebook page for the show.

https://www.facebook.com/The-Daley-Kitchen-1505649446394210/timeline/

Also she has once again entered that 1940's Ball pinup contest. I'll post the link to her entry when it's up.

Sadly, the cooking show won't last without the spouse. I can't explain now but I'll be back on Social Media soon, I promise. I don't want to spill anything that may do more damage than good at the moment.

Sorry to hear that Amanda. You're a very strong person so I have no doubt you'll bounce right back from whatever you're dealing with. You're also very gifted so I'm positive other opportunities will come your way. Also you don't owe me or anyone here any explanations.

One of Amanda's friends has set up a gofundme page for her as she's fallen on hard times. If you follow her Facebook page you'll see she's working two full time jobs and due to the high cost of rent where she lives she's struggling. If you're able to donate please consider doing so. Any amount will be of great help. Thank you.

I hope things get better for you soon, Amanda.

Posted by: chazz Apr 13 2016, 04:25 PM
Going by her Facebook posts, things seem to be going much better for her. She's got some good people around her fortunately.

Anyone in the Denver area should check out the Rockabilly expo on October 1st. Lady Blackwood will be there as a spokesperson and judge.

I'm alive!!! (':o')

Hey Guys,
Things are going better. I should be getting the finalized divorce papers soon, I hope. Certainly ready to have my life move in another direction. Started a new job last week and I'm getting paid more for less work in a less expensive city. Things still aren't exactly easy, but they're better. I'm working a full time gig and a part time delivery driver job for GrubHub.

Speaking of which, if anyone out there has never tried GrubHub, let me know. I can give you a first time coupon for $10 off your first order AND I get a bonus for the referral.

Anyway, still alive, still a crazy cat lady, saved all four from being trapped with the ex. Lots of friends, new love interest and a great path ahead of me.

Thanks for all your amazing support!!!

Nice to see things are getting better for you Amanda. smile.gif You're way too pretty to be a crazy cat lady, besides I think you have to have at least a dozen cats to qualify for crazy cat lady status.

I happen to think I'm well on my way with 1/3 of my quota inside a 1 bedroom apartment before the age of 40 but we'll see.

On a side note, thanks to a weird coworker stalker tattooing the name of "Blackwood" on his leg in a weird stalker tribute to me, I've had to change my last name on Facebook. Sweet revenge was mine however when I told him that Blackwood was actually my ex-husband's last name and had not been my legal name in well over a decade.

I'm currently shopping for a new Pinup last name and need help!

Also, the 1940's Ball is the 17th and I'll be there in all my 1940's goodness! I'll share photos!

laugh.gif Yeah i saw your post on Facebook about the tattoo. He's got some major issues going on but I'm sure he's already regretting his "tribute" to you. http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1274316687.gif

Have fun at the 1940s ball. I'll share the photos on our Facebook page when you post em'.

If you want you can change your username on here. Just put in a request through your usercp here or I can change it manually. I can also change the name of this thread if you'd like.

Those who follow Amanda on Facebook have already seen this but for those who haven't check out the write up 303magazine.com did on Amanda and the redhead festival she's organizing in Colorado next year.
