NEW YORK, May 9 -- Beach volleyball legend and fitness
expert Gabby Reece (recently named new health editor at Yahoo) kicks off
Summer 2006 on LIFETIME Television when she hosts a special Memorial Day
weekend programming festival highlighted by an encore presentation of the
network's smash hit "Beach Girls."
As on-air host Saturday, May 27 during the "Beach Girls" marathon
(airing 11AM-5PM, ET/PT), Reece provides beachgoers with a wide variety of
health, beauty and fitness tips, such as yoga positions which can be used
while never leaving the sanctity of a beach blanket; myths about getting in
shape; which moisturizers work the best; the truth about sun block; the
trick to diving into the ocean without getting crushed in a wave, and how
to play beach volleyball.
To accompany the stunt, Lifetimetv.com offers a week-long online menu
of diet and fitness tips along with a picture of Reece, her bio and links
to her personal web site GoToGabby.com.
The six-part, critically-acclaimed "Beach Girls," which starred Rob
Lowe, Julia Ormond and Cloris Leachman, chronicled the intertwining lives
and loves of summer visitors and residents of the coastal town of Hubbard's
Point. When "Beach Girls" premiered on Lifetime last July, it became the
network's most watched original drama premiere ever.
Lifetime's Memorial Day weekend programming continues on Sunday, May 28
at 5PM (ET/PT) when Cybill Shepherd and Annabeth Gish star in "Arthur
Hailey's Detective, " about a battle of wits between a Catholic priest, who
now investigates for the police, and a convicted serial killer. The
following night on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29 at 9PM (ET/PT), Poppy
Montgomery stars in "Between," where a woman plunges into the shadowy world
of Tijuana's underground in a desperate attempt to find her missing sister.
