I'd be lying if I said I've ever seen a True Love cover as fresh as this one with Terry Pheto, shot in Zanzibar. It's just one of those covers that make one wish September 1 was here already (not that I'm expecting this cold weather to have gone by then, but I can only hope). I'm already imagining finding my short-shorts. I'm not sure where I put them but I do know I have plenty after I cut 90% of all my pants into shorts thanks to the hot Cape Town weather in December last year. Anyway, let me not make this about me. I think it's a very well deserved "well done" to the ladies at True Love. Keep 'em comin' now!

Its a beautiful cover yes but as for her body image and the photoshoping or whatever it is its not good. no matter how many times iv seen this pic i just wanna sob,this woman Terry once represented a woman i love and enjoyed that its ok to be what ever body image you are besides curvy or skinny but as for this shot i cant lie i dont like this photo of her, its trying to acheive a universally acceptable kind of curvy, the u must have a gap between your thighs, skinny belly lean arms phat booty big boots kim K. nicky minaj beyonce kind of curvy, worst of all it doesnt even look real in this pic. esp for us South African audience having known the terry we knew. its fine if she lost weight and all that is perfect if she is happy about that, what i have a problem with is editors, photographers and other behind the scenes people trying to feed us a universally acceptable kind of beauty. this i must say like it or not is exactly that. fake ass message. i just feel sad for the average insecure girl when i see this.
