Sophie Monk has sparked engagement rumours after she was pictured wearing a ring on her finger on Instagram. “Engaged?” asked one fan.“OK has to be said, ring on that finger in your story?” added another. “Engaged!” exclaimed one more.

is lisa leaving the project ?

Lisa Wilkinson was photographed leaving Nova FM’s Melbourne HQ, prompting speculation she might be swapping TV for radio, or at least adding a new job to her already busy schedule. The Project TV star is reportedly in the middle of contract negotiations with Ten bosses as she comes up to the end of her second year at the current affairs show, with a source telling New Idea she’s pushing for a big pay rise. But it appears the seasoned host is eyeing up radio too. “She’s playing hard-ball. She took a pay cut from Nine to jump ship but now she wants a big hike,” the TV insider reveals.

One of Hollywood’s most enduring couples, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, have been rocked by shock cheating claims. The ‘Cry Me a River’ singer and actor was spotted holding hands and canoodling with his co-star Alisha Wainwright at a cosy bar in New Orleans. The suggestive photos have put a spotlight on Alisha, 30, who plays JT’s on-screen lover in their upcoming movie Palmer. In photographs and footage of the night, Alisha could also be seen stroking Justin’s leg. “At one stage he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands,” a witness told the Daily Mail. But as rumours swirl that the pair have taken their romance off-screen, Justin’s wife,…

vale clive james

Tributes flowed last week for legendary Australian writer and broadcaster Clive James, who passed away aged 80. Stephen Fry described Clive on Twitter as one of his “heroes” growing up. While Monty Python’s Eric Idle said the death of his “pal at Cambridge” University was “savage news”. Clive, known for his larrikin wit and insightful reviews, died on November 24 after a decade-long battle with leukaemia, kidney failure and lung disease. A funeral was held on November 27. His family said: “Clive died almost 10 years after his first terminal diagnosis, and one month after he laid down his pen for the last time. He endured his ever-multiplying illnesses with patience and good humour, knowing until the last moment that he had experienced more than his fair share of this ‘great,…

Amid marriage woes and an AVO taken out against her husband Stuart Webb, Kate Ritchie is finally speaking out about her future plans. “[I’m] very ready for a holiday and I don’t think I’m alone there.

Earlier this month, Stuart agreed to the AVO taken against him by the NSW police, after he was banned from being in contact with the radio star for 12 hours after drinking or taking illicit drugs. That said, Kate’s career is going well, with her…
