But her next album releases didn't fair as well, so she left music and went back to acting.

That film also starred Carmen Electra.
She co-hosted several shows on Australian TV like the travel show Getaway, the documentary TV show What a Year and Project Runway Australia in 2011.
The coolest thing to me is that in 2008, she was considered for the role of Wonder Woman in the George Miller movie version of Justice League of America, which was unfortunately canned.
Tell me she wouldn't have made a great Wonder Woman!
I had to add the lovely Siobhan Parekh to this Hub.
This Aussie beauty was born on January 1983 in Perth.
Usually I do full body pictures, and don't get me wrong, Siobhan has a body that would make a Bishop kick out a stain glass window, but I just loved this full face shot of her.
Siobhan won the 2005 FHM Girl Next Door competition, and later she became the first Australian to become a playable online game character, appearing as a super-human martial artist in the short-lived MMORPG Fury.
She has been romantically linked with Tennis player Mark Philippoussis and Rebels bikie member Mark Judge.
Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski was born on July 30th 1982 in Werrington Downs, New South Wales, Australia.
I watched her for five years as CIA Agent Sarah Walker in the NBC series Chuck.
And she played another CIA Agent, Kate Morgan, in the television series 24: Live Another Day.
She must like playing CIA agents.
I really wanted her to get the role of Captain Marvel in the MCU...but that didn't happen.
But...she did do the voice of Batwoman in the DCAU movie Batman: Bad Blood and I think she would make a great Kate Kane.
I can always hope.
