IT'S SLATED to rain today in NYC. It also rained yesterday, and Tuesday and apparently the sky has every intention of keeping it up through Sunday. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a real thing, my friends.

Thankfully a known treatment is watching this totallyneverbeforeseenfirstlookpremiere video of Kate Upton in the Cook Islands, on camera. Recently Kate told British Vogue that she doesn't have a dark side, saying:

I always thought Marilyn [Monroe] was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her. But I feel like nowadays it’s easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don’t think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don’t have that.

To prove that point, here is some gold mine footage of Ms. Upton bringing an extra helping of sunshine to the shores of the Cook Islands. How can you not love this woman? I mean, really!
