Posted Mar 15 2010 by Pam

In an attempt to make updating the site quicker, at least with regards to adding new pictures, I've installed a gallery script. All the pictures from each of the picture links will, at some point, be uploaded to the new gallery. Some of them are there already but there is still a lot to do.

There are, however, some new images that I've already uploaded to the gallery. The list of new additions is below.

Bring Back Fame
Designing Women - P.R. Paul
7th Heaven - Graham Jarvis
Lifetime Intimate Portrait: Debbie Allen
Friends - Carlo Imperato
Walker Texas Ranger - Morgan Stevens

The images in the links below are from the special features found on one of the Fame movie DVDs.
Vintage Featurette - On Location With: FAME
Fame Field Trip - about the real Fame school.

I've also uploaded the old wallpaper that I had available on here previously.

Message From Nia - Elements of Life
Posted Feb 11 2010 by Pam

I've been asked to post the following message from Nia Peeples.

  Hello to all you dedicated Fame fans! I am so excited about this next adventure that I had to write to you personally. I wanted to let every one know that I have started a whole new website and teleseminar series dedicated to living a wonderful, exciting life.  Fame was such an extraordinary experience for me, one that set the tone for the way I live my life.  Reaching for your dreams, over coming adversity, believing in yourself, these were major themes of Fame.  Having been lucky enough to experience those ideals at such a young impressionable age, those beliefs carried me through all the adversity of attempting to succeed in Hollywod and in life. It is the only show in my entire career, that filled me with such hope in my future and belief in myself, and I believe it is the same for all of Fame’s dedicated audience. Having waited 25 years to find and become a part of another tv show that brought such inspiration to it’s audience,  but to no avail, I decided to create something myself.  It’s called Elements of Life. It’s a website and a 12 part seminar where like-minded people can come for inspiration, sharing, and just plain fun.

Please come and join me.  I haven’t been excited about anything like this since Fame. Come join me. Let’s grow this together and make this our new second home!

Can’t wait to see you there!


Nia Peeples

RTÉ Television and Screentime ShinAwil have launched Ireland's biggest ever musical theatre talent search.

The search, which will be featured in the 10-week television show 'Fame The Musical', aims to find male and female stars for a nationwide tour of the West End production.

Leading the search for the new musical theatre stars will be stage producer Robert C Kelly, actor and director Simon Delaney and actress and singer Erica Gimpel, who starred as Coco Hernandez in the original 'Fame' television series.

Auditions for the show are due to take place in Dublin, Cork and the heart of the West End in London. For audition information, click here.

A fan's story: Nia, Jesse and Cynthia in Italy!
Posted Jan 17 2010 by Roberta

Hi everyone,this is Greg's story about her Fame-filled experience last December. She went to see Nia, Jesse and Cynthia on two of the three concerts they held in Italy. The shows took place:
Greg was at the last two shows.

Greg (that is, Barbara) is an old member of the FameForever forum who has not the chance to surf the net as often as she would like to...also, she claims her english is too rusty (which of course it isn't smile), so I volunteered to translate her story for you all. Enjoy!

FameForever friends…those who remember me and those who don’t know me…though I can’t participate in the forum like I used to anymore, I can’t help sharing with you the joy and the enormous luck that befell on me lately, on two occasions that will stay with me forever…
One of my lifetime dreams came true and my eyes still sparkle…who would have possibly thought that, more than 20 years later, I’d have had the chance of seeing, listening to, meeting, and most of all sharing some moments with Nia Peeples, Jesse Borrego and Cynthia Gibb, some of our Kids from Fame??
