stars honour aussie trailblazer

Tributes poured in for Helen Reddy last week, after the ‘I Am Woman’ hitmaker and feminist icon passed away on September 29, aged 78. “As a teenager I’d mime to ‘I Am Woman’ and dream of a future that was only afforded me because of the hard work done by other women inspired by the sentiments of that song,” Amanda Keller wrote on Instagram. “What a woman.” In 2015, Helen was diagnosed with dementia. Earlier this year, the biopic I Am Woman was made about her life. The film’s director, Unjoo Moon, thanked the inspirational mother-of-two, saying, “She paved the way for so many.”…

delta’s baby news!

Now that they’ve wrapped up their Bunkerdown Sessions on Instagram, Delta Goodrem and Matthew Copley are turning their attentions to their next project – welcoming a baby! Last week, the Aussie singer, 35, sparked fresh rumours she could be pregnant, after she was spotted looking bumpy at Westfield Bondi Junction in Sydney. Her baggy tracksuit only fuelled the baby buzz, with an onlooker saying: “It certainly looked like she was trying to cover something up!” Delta – who is a doting aunt to her brother Trent’s kids, Nate and Emmy – has previously confirmed that she’s eager to start a family of her own. In 2018, she said: “I always knew it would be a little later in life for me. I look forward to when that chapter is and that will…

stolen identity scam!

Casey Donovan is fighting back after an anonymous Facebook user hijacked her identity! Taking to Instagram to share a screenshot of the ‘C-donovan Gift’ account using her headshot and name, the Australian Idol winner told her followers: “I’ve had a fair few people messaging me and notifying me that there is a page going around sending messages and whatnot. The page depicted below is not associated with me, my brand or anything that I do or lend my name too. It has been reported.” It’s understandable why Casey, 32, quickly set the record straight, given she was the victim of a previous catfishing hoax. From 2004, Casey was in a six-year romance with a man she believed was named Campbell. In reality, she was being scammed by her friend, Olga. “I spent six…

fed-up jen quitting showbiz

Jennifer Aniston has admitted that, for the past two years, quitting Hollywood has “crossed my mind”. One job in particular left the Friends star, 51, so drained, she started thinking, “I don’t know if [acting] is what interests me.” “I was like, ‘Whoa, that was really … that sucked the life out of me,’” Jen said of the unnamed film. “It was an unprepared project. We’ve all been a part of them … You always say, ‘I’ll never [do it] again! Never again! I will never back up into a start date!’ And then the script isn’t ready [and you’re] stuck.” Luckily, the script for Morning Wars, which Jen won a SAG Award for earlier this year, landed in her lap shortly after the experience, and she decided the role was…

fresh fears for pamela!

After a bizarre marriage to Hollywood producer Jon Peters earlier this year that ended after just 12 days, Pamela Anderson has been licking her wounds in her small Canadian hometown – but friends are worried the isolation is getting to her. The Baywatch actress, 53, is believed to be staying with her mum as she builds her own home in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island. She appears to be passing the time by reminiscing about better days. “Pammie’s been posting an absurd amount of pictures to her social media from her glory days,” explains an insider. “The big worry is that she’s without a lot of her friends in Canada, and the kind of support network she uses to maintain her sobriety. Since she’s not been very talkative lately, her Hollywood friends can’t tell…
