Leah Dizon resumes her activities



Talento Leah Dizon (26), who returned to the United States after her divorce in December of 2010, has announced through her official blog that she has resumed her activities in New York.

Leah recently graduated from an acting school which she was attending since January of 2011. She has also signed a contract with an agency in the United States. According to her agency, Leah will be active as an actress and talent not only in the United States, but also in Japan if she receives any offers.

Leah left a vivid impression as the “kurofune (a word used to describe a person or thing arriving from the West) of the gravure industry“. She then made her singing debut and appeared on the ‘Kohaku Uta Gassen‘ for the first time in 2007 for a medley together with AKB48 and Nakagawa Shoko. At the peak of her popularity, Leah made a surprise marriage and pregnancy announcement.

After giving birth to her daughter in April of 2009, Leah had an active career as an actress. However, her relationship with her husband was on the rocks. Their divorce was finalized in December of 2010 and Leah received full custody over their daughter. Since then, she returned to America to take acting classes.

On December 14th, Leah updated her blog for the first time in a year and four months. Titled “Hello!”, the blog read, “Everyone, knock knock… Anybody home? Today!!!! It’s really been awhile! This is big peach, Leah Dizon! How have you been? I resumed my activities in New York!”

Leah has also launched her official Facebook page, which already features a handful of pictures.

"Leah received full custody over their daughter."

what does that mean?
Like is it a traditional japanese divorce in which the dad will never be able to see his daughter?
Because she went to the US just after...


If that's the case, then SMH @ her even more because she probably perfectly know that there are other solutions....

I hope it's not the case. Whatever, good luck to her for her career.

I cannot wait to see her return to Japan.
She looks so matured in the picture.

Gone is that teeny-bopper who is an air-head.

...seriously. This is awful.

This woman went to Japan solely to make money. That's it. She didn't know Japanese before she went. She learned it there. The only reason she she was able to get an offer from an agency in Japan was because Japanese pervs saw her pictures online, started posting them on 2ch and she ended up getting millions of hits. Read: She was offered a contract because she was a hot piece of ass.

Just like many of the other "Talento" people she has no REAL skills. They just take classes on how to sing moderately well and how to do a little shuffling around on stage. After they have that down the BLITZ the media with their pictures and put then on every single fucking variety show they can.

Her popularity (if you could call it that) on TV was based on the "gaijin factor." I'd compare her to Bobby. The only reason he's on so much stuff is because he's a black guy who can speak Japanese and can be slightly funny. Similarly, the only reason she was "popular" (aka on TV a lot) was because she's a white girl who can speak Japanese and drew in the internet pervert crowd.

This isn't even newsworthy on TKH. She's doing theater work in NYC. She's not coming back to Japan or doing anything Japan related right now. By the way...if you go to her Facebook there's a major WTF. She actually begged people to LIKE her. Seriously...what bad form.

Thanks for coming back to tell all of us that you're "back", Leah. We didn't care that you left. You fucked your own career over. Stop trying to force yourself back into everyone's lives. Go away.

I have a million things to say about this comment, but, I can't. If I do, I can't show my face here again. BUT...I will make one statement... "50% true. 50% false." That is all.

Hmmm.... Well her biggest wrong move was getting pregnant and marrying that guy she hardly knew (in a culture she hardly knew)

I feel kind of bad for her, but such is the life of celebrities and their temptations (tho it would've been so much more entertaining if she got pregnant by a Johnny..... Weren't there many admirers of her? But maybe she doesn't like the pretty boys, sad)

her life, her choices. I think this one is actually a good one.

don't like her weak voice so I hope no future music from her :P
