julia’s public meltdown!

Hollywood actress Julia Roberts is usually all smiles, but last week the star was spotted having what looked like a meltdown. After stepping off the plane, the Pretty Woman actress was seen to be exchanging heated words with a group of people, as they seemed to be getting into the waiting car. While Julia has appeared in a string of successful movies and told InStyle magazine that she welcomed turning 50 with “open arms and gratitude”, it seems the stress of landing her next gig – at the age of 51 – may be getting to the famous mum-of-three. BABY JOY FOR EDWINA! Sunrise newsreader Edwina Bartholomew confirmed live on-air that she was expecting her first child with husband Neil Varcoe. “I have a bit of an announcement myself, the girls already know,” she…

sylvia under fire!

Last week, it was announced that former Today newsreader, Sylvia Jeffreys, had signed on for another four years with Channel Nine. But New Idea can reveal that her behaviour, since landing the new gig on A Current Affair, has apparently not been received well by some people. The source said: “In one week we saw Sylvia grace the front of a magazine and then she’s in at KIIS FM dressed to the nines after being done up by hair and makeup for what was a radio appearance.” Executive Producer Fiona Dear told Stellar magazine: “She’s keen and caring and she’s bombarded me with story ideas,” however, our source claims this comment has ruffled feathers. “Where are the stories we all wonder? She seems to be spending more time raising her profile,” the source said. Speaking…

bachelor’s hot makeover

When astrophysicist Matt Agnew was first announced as the new Bachelor, back in March, people said the handsome and brainy 31-year-old was quite the catch! Recently, he was spotted filming a promo for the new season of The Bachelor Australia alongside lots of ladies dressed in red, and he certainly looked like he was ready to meet the eligible bachelorettes and finally find love. Speaking earlier this year, space-loving Matt said: “It may be an unorthodox way to meet someone, but I think it’ll be a sensational experience and make for a cracking ‘how we met’ story!”…

showdown at trooping

After six months, the world watched on in anticipation as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined forces once more at Trooping the Colour. Dubbed the ‘fab four’ the couples appeared to shrug off rumours of a royal feud and were all smiles as they stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace alongside Her Majesty to watch the RAF fly-past. However, New Idea can now reveal that not all was as it seemed and that their ‘united front’ was simply just for show. Royal insiders say tension between the Cambridges and Sussexes has reached breaking point after Harry and Meghan abruptly pulled out of the Royal Foundation last week – a joint charity initiative William and Harry founded in 2009. “You could cut the tension with a…

harry banned

Still on maternity leave, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is said to be fed up with her husband’s busy schedule, which has seen him leave her at home alone with their new son numerous times over the past month. “With the Invictus Games set for the Netherlands, Harry has been spending time flying back and forth, which will only increase as the Games draw nearer,” a royal insider tells New Idea exclusively. “He has also attended a number of royal engagements since Archie was born and it’s something she’s struggling with.” Making matters worse, our insider says Harry’s close friendship with Queen Maxima of the Netherlands has been a point of contention for the Sussexes. “Harry’s relationship with Queen Maxima, 48, has obviously developed in recent weeks, especially since he attended the one-year countdown…

face-off at gala dinner kate vs rose

Two months after their reported feud first went public, the Duchess of Cambridge and her so-called “rural rival” Rose Hanbury’s paths have once again crossed. The former friends were both in attendance at the State Banquet held by the Queen to honour President Donald Trump’s UK visit. But after barely acknowledging each other, they did little to dispel rumours of a falling out. Now, New Idea has learnt exclusively that Kate was so rattled by Rose’s presence at the glittering event that she nearly fled in tears. “Kate demanded she speak to the Queen’s top aide and said that she wanted to be assured she was sat on the opposite side of the room to Rose, which the Queen approved at the last minute knowing how catastrophic it would be if Kate pulled…
