Throwback Thursday: November 2000

Check out what we were up to in November ’00. Don’t worry, we’ll leave out our middle school class picture.

Every week, we send someone stumbling into the dark Maxim archives to see what we were up to way back when. This week we’re going back to November of 2000, when we knew Victoria’s Secret, we had to compete with Freddie Prinze Jr., and we had high hopes for Little Nicky.

Cover Girl: Yamila Diaz

Where You’ve Seen Her: In the early 2000’s, this smoking hot Argentinean was all over the pages of the Victoria’s Secret catalog (you know, the one you’d steal from your sister and hide under your bed for, um, later…).The previous year she graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition issue, joining the ranks of the hottest women in the world, and became the first Latina spokesperson for makeup brand Cover Girl. Ay, caramba!

Where She Is Now: Besides a brief stint in a 2007 TV movie about the infamous Swimsuit Edition, Yamila hasn’t been in the spotlight much. But what we do know is that she’s still gorgeous, she’s married to an artist, and she has a wiki page dedicated to her feet, which is weird and kind of awesome at the same time.


XXX Fantasy Island

Before we opened up this issue, we completely forgot that once upon a time, the world’s idols were people like Ricky Martin, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Andy Dick. At the time, Freddie Prinze Jr. was a sensation among teenage girls looking to fulfill their She’s All That dreams, Ricky Martin was famous without the help of William Hung, and Andy Dick was, well, himself. But in the modern world the popularity of all three celebrities has declined somewhat. These days, Freddie is usually mentioned only in connection with wife Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ricky keeps a relatively low-profile (though he’s still in the tabloids fairly often), and Andy is busy sashaying across the Dancing With The Stars stage – a place where Hollywood careers go to die.

Movie Review: Little Nicky

We’ve been fans of Adam Sandler since his SNL glory days, but when we find ourselves cramped up in our box-like apartments looking for a funny movie to watch, the last film we’d choose is Little Nicky. Between the cheap opening scene with Jon Lovitz, the talking pug, and Nicky’s irritating vocals, we’d rather watch almost any other Adam Sandler movie. Except Click, because that was the fucking worst.
