SANTANA RODRIGUEZ TV Host, Fitness Champion & Cover Model

TV Host, Fitness Champion & Cover Model 


MIHM-Tell us a little bit about you, where are you from and what inspired you to pursue a career in the fi­tness and entertainment industry?

SR-I am from Buff­alo, but now reside in Los Angeles, CA. I was born in Puerto-Rico. My ethnicity consists of being half-Puerto-Rican and half-Brazilian.

What inspired me to pursue a career in the entertainment industry was my love for acting. I wanted to become a sitcom actress. I acted in high school and ended up doing many plays when I arrived in LA. As far as fitness, I fell into it. I had a friend talk me into joining my first competition. When I did, I took 3rd place in my class, which motivated me to continue, eventually taking a national title. My dad, who had type-2 diabetes and lost his legs through 2 amputations, was the ultimate driving force that compelled me to learn everything I could about exercise and nutrition to help him and others that were going through the same. I want to help people, so they don’t ever experience what my dad went through. It was heart-breaking! He is no longer here today; however, my fitness television show is dedicated in loving memory to him.

MIHM-You are an actress, model, TV Host and fi­tness and health advocate, witch one makes your heart beat faster?

SR-They all make my heart beat. I have a complete love and passion for creativity and they all incorporate that.

MIHM-Tell us about your ­fitness show “Shaping Up with Santana”

SR-My fitness television show “Shaping up with Santana” is an exercise show that caters to individuals that don’t have the time or money to get to a gym, but want to incorporate activity and movement in their busy schedules. You can watch it live on

MIHM- How do you see your acting career in 5 years, and which actors and directors would you like to work with?

SR-In 5 years, I see myself producing more television shows. As an actress, I would love to work with directors such as Tyler Perry, Alejandro Iñárritu, Nick Cassavetes and, of course, my favorite of all, Steven Spielberg.

MIHM-De­ne what success means to you?

SR-Success to me means reaching a level where you can be the best version of “you” physically, mentally, spiritually and financially within your own comfortable means.

MIHM-What do you think about the current situation in the country and what would you think you can do to change it or to make it better?

SR-I believe our country’s current situation is in a state of emergency. I’ve never seen so much hate spread amongst each other. I believe that to make it better we need to promote love. It’s a responsibility within each and every one of us to do it. Stop the hate crimes, stop the bullying on social media, be kinder to one another, give back and take a stand on making changes. Take part in organizations that better children, the sick, and the less fortunate. In conclusion, our government has been the worst example of leadership. If our congress can’t even get it together on both political sides, how can improvement in our country exist when they show no signs of partnership. It tears our nation apart both internally and externally.

MIHM-Who have been your biggest mentors in your career?

SR-My greatest mentors in my career are my parents and GOD.

MIHM-What other projects are you working on right now?

SR-I’m currently working on another follow up television show

MIHM-How can people reach you, do you have social media, website, etc.

SR-I can be reached through emailing me directly at [email protected]

My website­t

Also if any of you would like to hire me for bookings, speaking engagements, or appearances and/or become a sponsor for my television show, please email me at [email protected]

MIHM-What do you think about the lack of opportunities for minorities in Hollywood?

SR-This is a tough question to answer because I don’t feel it’s just minorities, but rather many talented artists of any color, race or creed, that don’t get opportunities. I think the lack of opportunities in Hollywood for artists in general needs to happen so that we could step up, become creative and build our own opportunities rather than wait for someone to give them to us. This means creating our own projects, television shows and ‑lms. There are so many talented people in the world that will never get that opportunity to be seen or heard. Being an actress myself, I remember that feeling of working for peanuts, getting your SAG card and auditioning for casting directors waiting for an opportunity to be cast while being broke. I also remember how frustrating it was, having to wait for a job to be given to you. It was always, “if you don’t know the right people, forget about being discovered.” I didn’t let that get in my way. I wanted to take control of my own life, rather than the industry trying to control it. So I busted my butt and created my own opportunity. Check out

MIHM-If you could work with somebody you admire, celebrity, politician, musician, leader or anybody else, who would it be and why?

SR-I would say that I’m already working with who I enjoy working with. It’s an organization called the “Big Brothers Big Sisters club of Los Angeles” (BBBSLA) where I get to mentor and be a big sister to this darling little angel who is 8 years old. She brings me so much joy and I get the opportunity to help guide her in becoming a big success in her own life physically, mentally and spiritually.

MIHM-What do you like doing in your spare time?

SR-In my spare time, I love to travel. I love learning about deferent cultures, eating deferent foods and socializing with locals. It’s the only way to become cultured as an individual. I also love to trade stocks. I’m incredibly passionate about that. I’ve always been a risk taker, so I consider it a source of gambling in my life.

MIHM-Would you date a fan?

SR-I think dating a fan is like dating ourselves, especially on social media. We are all fans, somehow, because we are all following somebody. Sorry, had to throw that in.

MIHM-Who is your celebrity crush?

SR-My celebrity crush was always Rick Springfield. I got to meet him twice this year, and it was my ultimate dream come true.


Founders of Elite
Connections International

Exclusive Interview


MIHM-Tell us a little bit about you, where are you from and what inspired you to pursue a career in the love/dating industry?

SM-I am originally from New Mexico but have lived in California most of my life. I founded Elite Connections International 25 years ago when I saw a need for a safe and effective way for successful and commitment minded singles to meet one another. My philosophy is that there is someone out there for everyone, but you won’t find them sitting at home. My biggest satisfaction is seeing people happy together and when there are engagements and marriages it’s even more rewarding!

MIHM-You and your daughter are the owners of Elite Connections International, tell us about it.

SM-I started the company in 1994 in Los Angeles after I met my husband through a matchmaker. My daughter started working part time with the company at 15 and has been the VP of the company for 16 years.

MIHM-What advice would you give people that can’t ­find love in LA.

TP-You may be looking in the wrong places. Take up some new hobbies to meet new people. Be positive, upbeat, always look and feel your best and go out everyday like you may meet the one.

MIHM-Why do you think you’ve had so much success.

TP-We meet, screen and match professionals that are looking for a quality long term match. We feel like we become friends with our clients and are able to make great matches because we know everyone personally while helping them with all aspects of their dating journey.

MIHM-How dangerous or safe is it to date with Elite Connections?

TP-People prefer to use our company because it’s a safe effective way to meet quality people. We verify everyone’s authenticity and do background checks. People with busy lives need extra help to find the right person and hire us do the screening for them.

MIHM-Why you think you have had so much success with your business and do you reach only the LA area?

SM-The personal service and care we give to our clients is what has made us successful. We have an A+ business rating and offices in Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, La Jolla, Westlake Village, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Florida, NYC, Chicago, Nevada, Canada and Europe.

MIHM-De­ne what success means to you?

SM-Working at a job I enjoy, matching couples that fall in love and having a team of matchmakers that care about our clients. Our team has fun together and working with my daughter all these years has been amazing. We have gone to weddings together as far away as Scotland. Who wouldn’t enjoy that?

MIHM-What do you think about the current situation in the country and what would you think you can do to change it or to make it better?

SM-We have a ton of homeless people and teens in LA. Our government closed two local children’s shelters years ago and that put more children on the streets. We have a gala every year to help some of LA’s most needy children at Christmas. Come join us this year. There’s so much help needed everywhere you look but if everyone pitches in a little, it will make LA a better place.

MIHM-Who have been your biggest mentors in your career?

SM-Pam Lontos was the first person that gave me the confidence to start my own company. Keri Roberts and I

have been Elite Connections matchmakers and friends for 20 years. Tammi has shown me love even when I’m the most stressed. She puts family first no matter what.

MIHM-What other projects are you working on right now?

SM- Our 20th annual fundraiser, Party With A Purpose in LA. Opening offices in new areas like Dallas and London. Spending time with my amazing husband, family and friends.

5 Celebrity Athletes Bigger Than Their Sports

Professional athletes, especially the ones at the top of their sport, enjoy a certain public significance in today’s world. But it takes a little something extra for these individuals to be considered true celebrities beyond the field or court of play. Some of them pull it off though, whether through prominent endorsements, film and TV appearances, for even prominent side businesses.

At the present moment, these are some of the larger-than-life athletes we look at as having transcended sport and, if you will, gone Hollywood.

1.) Kyrie Irving

Despite the fact that he’s earned himself a reputation as something of a malcontent, there’s no questioning that Kyrie Irving is a star on an NBA basketball court. His memorable shot in the final game of the 2016 Finals helped to secure the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first championship, and though his brief tenure in Boston was fruitless, his own performance was sensational. He’s one of the best point guards in the world at this point – but he’s also made quite the celebrity name for himself off the court (at least officially) by playing the amusing role of “Uncle Drew” in the Pepsi Max commercials and subsequent film.

2.) LeBron James

Not only is LeBron James the most famous current NBA player (and a former teammate of Irving’s), he is also staring in the upcoming Space Jam 2 movie. The movie is set to premiere in July of 2021 and is the much-anticipated sequel to the original Space Jam featuring Michael Jordon. For a lot of NBA fans it’s hard to imagine James’s stardom reaching a much higher level. To the general public though, as well as to a whole generation of kids too young to remember James in his prime, it may just turn him into an even more iconic sports and celebrity figure. Just think about what it did for Jordan; many people who may not be dedicated basketball fanatics still hear his name and picture him alongside Bugs Bunny!

3.) Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski – or “Gronk” as he’s often called – is actually a perfect study in celebrity status beyond sports. The longtime star tight end for the New England Patriots has won a handful of Super Bowls and established himself as the best to ever play his position. And yet, in the upcoming NFL season the first since Gronk’s retirement  U.S.-based sports betting outlets are still pegging the Patriots among the Super Bowl favorites. That’s not to say they don’t need Gronk, but it does beg the question of just why he commanded such a spotlight if the team is still so good without him. And the answer, basically, is personality.

4.) Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while not quite as famous as, say, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, is an international soccer star with a larger-than-life celebrity personality. The 37-year-old Swedish footballer is constantly talking himself up in the media, often referring to himself in the third-person and making comical statements about his admittedly outrageous soccer skills. Whether you are a fan of Zlatan’s or not, he’s an undeniable entertainer who seems to understand his place in the spotlight about as well as he understands how to strike a ball with his feet. Lately, Zlatan has taken to claiming for himself the undisputed title of best player in the MLS, America’s top pro soccer league.

5.) Serena Williams

Serena Williams is the most famous female tennis player of all time, and perhaps the best of either gender. And while she may not outwardly share Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s healthy ego, she has a similar feel for how to promote herself in a moment, or command attention even when her game isn’t at its best (which is rare). Her catalogue of endorsements is second to none; her history of spats with line judges and chair umpires adds a bit of an edge to her status in tennis; and away from the court entirely, she managed to fall in love with and marry not just any guy, but a prominent tech entrepreneur.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Officially Scrub Harry and Meghan From Charity Name

It’s officially the end of a royal era.

Just over a year since Meghan Markle joined Prince HarryPrince Wiliam and Kate Middleton‘s royal foundation, the organization’s name has officially been changed to reflect Harry and Meghan’s exit.

In June, it was confirmed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were leaving The Royal Foundation and forming their own. “These changes are designed to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households,” a statement from Kensington Palace explained at the time.

E! News confirmed in July the Sussexes’ new organization will be called “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex” or “Sussex Royal” for short.  

Now, William and Kate’s charity has gotten a slightly new name of its own.

Is There a Royal Rift Between Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton?

On Tuesday, it was confirmed the name had been officially changed to “The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge” from the previous title, “The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”

The change cost the charity £10 to file. While the paperwork is all set, the new title is not yet in effect on the foundation’s website. 

Despite rumors of a rift, the pair put on a united front when it came time to announce the news of their organizational split. 

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are incredibly proud of what they have achieved together through The Royal Foundation,” a June statement said. “They are especially proud to have established a charity that has had, and will continue to have, significant long-lasting impact, changing lives for the better.”

Cover Keanu Reeves is the man of the moment.

Keanu Reeves is the man of the moment.

MAGIC IMAGE HOLLYWOOD MAGAZINE is a big fan of Mr. Keanu Reeves and big admirer of your work!

One of the great things about living in the modern world is that everyone is finally hip to Keanu Reeves. Right now he’s everywhere: Not just in the superb sequel John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum, but on talk shows, as a character in the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077, and as a hotter-than-hell but also endearingly insecure Canadian daredevil doll in Toy Story 4.

He’s on Buzzfeed answering the public’s questions as puppies scramble around him, and he has a cameo in a Netflix romantic comedy, Always Be My Maybe, playing a version of himself, if he were sort of a jerk, which, from all reports, he surely is not. Reeves has become the Internet boyfriend du jour, thanks in part to a series of photographs swirling around the web that show how respectful he is when posing with random fans or even with Dolly Parton taking care to avoid anything that could be construed as inappropriate touching. Keanu enthusiasts have even launched a petition to make him TIME’s Person of the Year. That choice is made solely by TIME editors, but hey, you never know.

Keanu here, Keanu there, Keanu, Keanu everywhere: This is a 54-year-old overnight sensation who has been making movies since 1986, the year he appeared in Tim Hunter’s teens-in-trouble thriller River’s Edge. At last, he’s getting the unqualified love he deserves, and those of us who have always loved him can rest easy.

There have always been people who love Reeves, ferociously and defensively, as a personality and as a vibe. How could you not like him as a time-traveling, mop-headed swain in the Bill and Ted movies, as a surfing cop in Point Break, as earnest, searching Neo, the One, in The Matrix movies? But historically, even people who like Reeves as a performer have often been quick to add that they’re not sure he’s a good actor.

Before the Internet, there was a thing called dinner parties, and when the conversation turned to Keanu Reeves, you could be assured of hearing some variation of the following: He’s a bad actor. What he does is not really acting, he’s just playing himself. He’s good in action roles. He’s OK but he really shouldn’t attempt Shakespeare. He has no emotional range. He’s just bad.

No matter where you stand, I don’t think you can watch Reeves’ Don John and claim he doesn’t understand the character his intelligence works its way through muscle and bone as well as heart and head. It’s performance as vibration. This might be the key to all that Reeves does an actor, including his magnificent gifts as an action star. Movement is acting, speaking is acting, listening is acting, just being is acting: Reeves reminds us of all that, often silently. There’s thought behind everything he does, and reading those waves of thought is part of the process of watching him.

Maybe Reeves is one of the few modern-day actors whose style fits that model. He doesn’t work elaborate origami folds to transform himself into a character; instead, he beams radio signals from within. With a trim crewcut or a lanky shag, with a stubbly mug or a clean-shaven one, with a scowl or a slow-burning smile, he’s always starting from the base camp of Keanu.

None of this, though, answers the question of why Keanu, and why now? Other actors have passed through similar portals, seemingly expendable one minute and exalted the next. Before there was a Keanussance, there was a McConnaissance, the point at which Matthew McConaughey shifted from being an efficient actor in lame romantic comedies to being taken seriously in movies like Magic Mike and Dallas Buyers Club. The catchphrase became, “Wow, that guy can really act.”

But the recent blossoming of the Keanu orchid is different, maybe because, over the years, Reeves has proved that he doesn’t always need to be the center of attention. He launched a small art-book publishing house, X Artists’ Books, in 2018. He co-produced, and appeared in, the 2012 documentary Side By Side, an exploration of the differences between traditional photochemical filmmaking and digital processes.

He has always been guarded about his private life, though we do know that in 1999 his then-partner, Jennifer Syme, gave birth to a daughter, who was stillborn. In 2001, after the couple had broken up, Syme died in a car accident.

Reeves has erected some sturdy barriers against us, and yet somehow the membrane between his public life and what he truly thinks and feels seems fragile and permeable. What’s more, Reeves doesn’t seem to spend a lot of time on the Internet. Unlike most of us, he lives in the real world, and he makes it seem like a pretty good and grounded place to be.

When People magazine, on the red carpet for the Toy Story 4 premiere, asked Reeves how he felt about the Internet-boyfriend stuff, he responded with a ripple of surprise: “I’ve been what?” When the interviewer elaborated, he smiled quietly, as if only to himself. “That’s wacky,” he said, clearly amused as he registered this new-to-him but not-to-us information, quickly adding, “But the positivity’s great.”

He also speaks candidly on television, in the public eye about things that would leave many of us speechless. In early June he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote John Wick 3, answering the usual questions about what it’s like to fight while you’re on the back of a horse, and so forth. And then Colbert almost stopped time itself by asking a strange, potent question, as if knowing that if anyone might have the answer, it would be this radiantly centered person sitting just a few feet away: “What do you think happens when we die, Keanu Reeves?”

Colbert presented the question jauntily, as at least a half-joke, both courting and getting a laugh from the audience. That audience may or may not have known about the personal losses Reeves has suffered; they may or may not have known that Colbert lost his father and two of his brothers in a plane crash when he was 10. But what they know or don’t know matters so much less than the way Reeves responds, with composure and generosity and grace: “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.” Keanu Reeves is the man of the moment. Keanu Reeves is trending. Keanu Reeves is hotter than hot. But when our attention turns elsewhere, as it inevitably will, Reeves will still be out there surfing, not worrying whether we’re watching him or not. Because surfing, not trending, is the way to keep going.

Cover WENDY GUESS Beauty, brains and brawn.

Beauty, brains and brawn, Get to know our cover girl, Wendy Guess.

MAGIC IMAGE HOLLYWOOD MAGAZINE had the opportunity to interview the amazing Wendy Guess, she opened her heart to us, let’s see what she is all about.

Don’t let the girl-next-door, beauty pageant queen, laid back California vibe fool you. Wendy Guess is driven. Born in New York and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, she brought her southern belle charm to the City of Angels in 2000, not anticipating how long her stay would last. But after a few months, she realized Los Angeles would be the place she’d call home. A graduate of the University of Georgia, with a Bachelors of Business Administration, Wendy eventually found her niche as a technology speaker. She is the face and voice of some of the most successful companies around the globe. She speaks about a wide variety of technologies, from artificial intelligence firms to high tech drone manufacturers working with the US Military. On the other end of the spectrum, Wendy’s also expanded her professional career into commercial real estate investment and development, while joint venturing with other partners, focusing on luxury apartment buildings. To call her multi-faceted would be an understatement.

MIHM: What inspired you to enter into the field of tech speaking?

WG- While living in Atlanta, just after graduating from college, I was hired by a modeling agency to be an assistant to a key note speaker, at a tech conference. I was so intrigued and drawn to this field, that I made it my mission to master the art of narrating and ear prompting. I love learning and experiencing the many futuristic ways of communicating and traveling but don’t consider myself a technology expert. Though I didn’t initially aspire to be a public speaker, once I was in front of a live audience, the adrenaline just took over from there.

MIHM: What does success mean to you?

WG- I think everyone’s definition of success is unique to them. We all have our own personal goals. I feel it’s so important to stay true to yourself, and not be defined by the opinions of others, or to compare yourself to others. I’m very passionate and enthusiastic about what I do every day. My feeling is that true happiness is living in the moment and embracing it, which is something we can all agree on and strive to achieve.

Read on to see the impact Wendy has made in Los Angeles

Cover model Wendy Guess is full of surprises! At age 14, she took modeling classes, then went on to book print ads and win numerous pageant titles. Wendy started booking fitness and lifestyle campaigns while modeling for various catalogs, which she still does today. She’s never considered herself to be a “fashion” model, per se, but more of a fitness and commercial model, which has been quite fulfilling and lucrative for her. She’s always had a passion for fitness and taught fitness classes through high school and college, and is also a disciple of power yoga.

MIHM: What gets your heart beating faster, tech speaking or modeling?

WG: They are so different yet both rewarding and fulfilling, I love and enjoy them both and love having that variety in my career.

MIHM: What kind of workout and diet do you subscribe to?

WG: I make sure I do some kind of exercise every day. I do power yoga 3-4 days a week, which is a flow practice with music, while incorporating a lot of strength moves. On other days, I do cardio-hiking, running, or gym cycling.

My diet is not always strict, but what works best for me before an event or shoot, is a diet of greens and protein while excluding carbs. I also do intermittent fasting at the same time (where you can only eat for 8 hours out of a 24 hour period).

MIHM: What do you think about the current situation in the country and what would you think you can do to change it or make it better?

WG- As much as I dislike the divide and anger we’re currently experiencing, it’s important to share our views and call people out on their integrity or lack thereof, as everyone should be made accountable in politics and humanity. I do my best to stay optimistic and respect our leaders, but at the same time I’m open-minded with regard to all the different opinions and view points. It’s interesting to travel to other parts of our country, and hear the contrast of feelings and opinions. I sound so diplomatic, but I’m truly level-headed when it comes to our country and our future. Hopefully my optimism and positive attitude will be an example to

others, because I do have faith in our system and the future of our country.

Wendy’s greatest passion is raising her two daughters as a newly single mother. She and her beautiful daughters are animal rights advocates supporting The ASPCA, The Humane Society, and Best Friends Initiative.

MIHM: It’s great to give back, what is the organization in the picture?

WG: This organization is close to our hearts and does so much for innocent animals. We adopted an adorable kitten here 2 years ago. The NKLA with Best Friends Animal Society serves as a model for how the entire nation can become a no-kill environment, meaning no pet ever must die in a shelter again, just because they don’t have a home. Their website is

MIHM: What kind of volunteer work do you do?

WG: I participate in many events and activities at my daughter’s schools. When volunteering I really enjoy working with children, whether it’s in the classroom, hosting fund-raisers or chaperoning field trips. It truly rewarding and I love seeing inside their world.

MIHM: How can people reach you, do you have social media, website, etc.?

WG- Yes, I do. My website is
