jonathan dumped… for osher!

It seems Osher Günsburg made quite the impression on Network 10 bosses when he stepped in to host the Survivor finale in place of Jonathan LaPaglia. Insiders tell New Idea that while The Bachelor and Bachelorette have suspended filming due to COVID-19, Survivor is in full swing for the next season. “Osher gets this gig as they cannot do Bachelor or Bacherlorette at the moment due to the intimacy factor and they need a new Survivor to start filming soon,” the source dishes. “The finale was Osher’s Survivor audition and Jonathan is also not in favour with the producers and networks. They were not happy he went to the press announcing it won’t be shot in Australia as they have to wait for him to return from LA. “It will be 100 per…

lisa marie’s meltdown

Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of singing legend Elvis Presley, was spotted out and about grocery shopping in Los Angeles while looking a little worse for wear. The 52-year-old singer-songwriter has reportedly been struggling to cope following her 2016 split from ex-husband Michael Lockwood and the ensuing custody battle for her children, with her mental health reaching a new low. Insiders say friends and family are concerned the mother of four – who shares 11-year-old twins Harper and Finley with Michael – is spiralling to a dark place. “Lisa Marie is in a terrible place both physically and emotionally and it’s been this way for a long time,” an insider tells New Idea. “Even before the divorce [from Michael Lockwood] turned toxic she was struggling, but over the past 12 or 18 months…

tiger lily follows dad’s footsteps

The daughter of late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is looking to follow in the footsteps of her rock star dad. Tiger Lily, 23, uploaded several recordings of her singing and laughing while spending time in Walyalup and Fremantle in Western Australia – and it seems the young songstress has inherited her dad’s singing ability, with music clearly in her veins. “It’s many different versions of a few songs and recordings of our big beautiful ocean!” Tiger said of the track. Tiger’s friend India Rose uploaded a photo of the reclusive young woman on a deserted beach, proving she is every bit the free-spirited dreamer her father once was. Photos of Tiger on social media also show she is the spitting image of her late father, who sadly died in 1997 when Tiger was aged…

jen hawkins ‘life with baby frankie’

Supermodel Jennifer Hawkins has given the world a rare glimpse behind the scenes of her new life with her baby girl Frankie and husband Jake Wall. In a breathtaking photo shoot with marie claire, Jen, 36, opened up about raising her 5-month-old daughter and her private struggle with fertility. “I love it. The whole experience of motherhood – the birth, then learning to breastfeed – there’s just so much personal growth,” Jen says. “It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I feel more content than I’ve ever been.” Sadly, it wasn’t an easy journey to motherhood for Jen, whose first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage two years ago. “It was really hard. We’d been trying the year before, then fell pregnant, then had a miscarriage,” Jen says. “It wasn’t like I wanted to…

heather locklear: out of hiding

Heather Locklear was spotted out of hiding alongside her boyfriend Chris Heisser and her daughter Ava Sambora as they took a stroll in Westlake Village in California. “It was one of the first sunny days in a while,” an onlooker spilled to DailyMailTV. “A lot of people were out trying to escape quarantine ‘cabin fever’.” Heather has had a rough couple of years after pleading no contest to fighting with police and medical professionals last August. In June 2018, the actress was arrested after guzzling a bottle of tequila and crashing her car. As a consequence, she was sentenced to 30 days in rehab. As part of her probation, the star must continue on an out-patient treatment program and submit a report every 90 to 120 days. In May she found herself returning to…
