karl demands bring back dickie!

Karl Stefanovic may be back in the hot seat on the Today show, but while he’s all smiles on screen, an insider claims behind the scenes the TV host is making diva-like demands – and getting his good mate Richard Wilkins’ job back on Today is top of his list. “The bosses have forgiven Karl for bringing bad publicity to the show with his private life but he has not forgotten what they did by any means,” says our well-placed spy. After being publicly fired, along with his brother, Peter Stefanovic, sister-in-law, Sylvia Jeffreys, and best mate, Richard ‘Dickie’ Wilkins, also losing their jobs in close succession, Karl is apparently ready to make some changes of his own.

ANGIE & BEAU: THE TRUTH ABOUT US Angie Kent and Beau Ryan appearing on DWTS together has raised some eyebrows. Just a few months ago the duo appeared to be on the verge of an all-out media spat, after the Amazing Race presenter revealed on the Kyle and Jackie O Show how, despite meeting him on multiple occasions,…

chris bath’s shock move

After years of fronting Seven News and Sunday Night, Chris Bath is a well-known face, and after making her TV comeback on Network Ten, the mum of one has found great success again. But now a source claims the newsreader has done such a great job covering the bushfires on The Project, it has apparently ruffled a few feathers. “Lisa Wilkinson is not happy,” the source claims. “Chris Bath has been co-anchoring The Project every night from the fires and doing such a great job.” With viewers enjoying Chris’ informative and often emotional interviews from the frontline, Lisa may be seeing her old rival as a bit of healthy competition. “Lisa has asked to return to The Project earlier, but they are saying no,” the source added.…
