diva forever

It may only be March, but it’s already been a magical year in music for the NW-ettes. First, I joined associate editor Mel for a Good As Hell time fangirling in the front row of a Lizzo concert, then writer Emma and I loosened up our Buttons to bop along with the newly reunited Pussycat Dolls at their Nova’s Red Room gig. But my highlight has to be seeing Melanie C, the goddess also known as Sporty Spice, belt out her biggest hits in Brisbane, where she was accompanied by a troupe of Spice-alike drag queens. Fabulous, darling! I’m due to see Alanis Morissette next month as well, but with the coronavirus pandemic – thinking of you, Tom Hanks! – it could be cancelled any moment now. Mariah Carey’s also had…

frail ange’s shocking collapse!

Hot on the heels of her eldest daughters Zahara and Shiloh being hospitalised and going under the knife for surgery, Angelina Jolie is in the midst of her very own health crisis. Seeing her ex-husband Brad Pitt romantically reunite with his first wife Jennifer Aniston has been a particular bitter pill for the star to swallow – and now multiple sources confirm the mother-of-six has been acting out in retaliation. We hear she’s eating less than ever – “Yes, you could call it a self-inflicted hunger strike,” claims one insider – which is naturally taking a toll. Uh-oh... “Angelina can barely stand up without collapsing,” tells one well-placed spy. “She is always lightheaded. Her assistants rarely let her walk anywhere by herself in case she keels over. It’s no surprise given what Angie…

josh vs cathy the ultimate betrayal!

They started as one of the strongest MAFS pairings, but Cathy Evans and Josh Pihlak’s love story came to a shocking end during Sunday night’s commitment ceremony. Hearts around Australia collectively broke as the pair ended the car crash that had become their marriage, walking away from the experiment not even as friends. Now new details of the split have emerged – and jeez, are they nasty! “Josh is a bloody top bloke and is feeling pretty betrayed at this point,” explains a close mate, who asked to remain anonymous. “Watching the show back, it seems Cathy might have been faking her feelings for him all along. “He feels so used... like a pawn in a game. She hasn’t once acknowledged or taken ownership of her actions.” According to a second source, Cathy, 26, tried…

logies showdown!

It’s Aussie television’s night of nights and we hear this season’s Married At First Sight participants are practically scrambling over each other to score a coveted invite to the TV Week Logie Awards in June! Yep, with producers only extending the offer to attend to a handful of the show’s fame-hungry cast, the stars are said to be pulling out all the stops to make sure they’re front and centre on the red carpet. “They’re all sucking up to the producers big time,” laughs an insider, who adds the only shoo-in is this year’s golden girl Elizabeth Sobinoff. Lizzie attended last year’s ceremony on the Gold Coast along with Cam, Jules, Heidi, Mike, Nick, Michael and Martha. However, Ines and Jess gatecrashed the A-list event at The Star Casino, causing quite the scene…

gossip bites

MIKEY’S NEW REALITY GIG REVEALED! Mikey Pembroke reveals exclusively to NW that despite being portrayed as “someone that I’m not” on MAFS, his time on the show hasn’t swayed him from wanting to give reality TV another go – albeit this time on Channel 10. “I’d do The Bachelor,” he says. “Survivor would be good too. I’d do it all!” LIZZIE’S SECRET EARPIECE Mishel Karen has dished that Lizzie Sobinoff wore an earpiece during filming, confirming our source’s claims the returning bride was “the producers’ puppet – she was basically running the show and helped dictate storylines”. ‘HE HAS A THING FOR LADYBOYS!’ NW has heard a crazy rumour that one of this year’s grooms likes to enjoy the company of transgender sex workers whenever he’s in Asia. “I’m told that he prefers spending time…

aleks on the prowl!

She didn’t find everlasting love on Married At First Sight like she’d hoped, but Aleks Markovic is definitely loving the male attention that her 15 minutes of fame has brought about. Since she dumped her smitten TV hubby Ivan Sarakula and abruptly quit the experiment following the most bizarre cheating claims in the show’s history, the real estate agent has been spied out and about with several men – including last year’s MAFS groom Dino Hira! The Perth-based duo were recently caught enjoying a romantic lunch together near Cottesloe Beach in the WA capital. An onlooker says the pair “seemed to have great chemistry with each other – at one point Dino even gave Aleks a kiss”. Ooh! Given Aleks, 26, made it crystal clear that she had no plans to relocate to…
