welcome

It’s no secret in the WHO office that I’m a massive fan of reality TV. The recent season of UK Love Island got me through the longest days of NSW’s lockdown and I’m already obsessed with Celebrity MasterChef. I reckon the upcoming season of The Bachelorette is especially exciting though. Brooke Blurton is a proud Noongar-Yamatji woman – it’s way past time an Indigenous Australian was the one dishing out the roses! That she’s speaking her truth and choosing between guys and girls in her quest for love is the refresh that this fun franchise needs. Read her inspiring story on page 26. Olympian and doctor Jana Pittman recently took part in her first ever stint on reality TV. She absolutely smashed it on SAS Australia to be the last woman…

5 things we’re talking about this week!

1 Diane’s a Belieber! She may have won an Oscar but starring in Justin Bieber’s latest music video may just be Diane Keaton’s favourite acting role yet! “AM I DREAMING???” the 75-year-old wrote alongside a teaser video for the singer’s song ‘Ghost’. “WHAT AN HONOUR IT WAS TO WORK WITH JUSTIN BIEBER AND HIS INCREDIBLE TEAM!!!” 2 Hey there, Willy! Timothée Chalamet has given fans a sneak peek into his role as Willy Wonka, posting a snap of himself in character on Instagram. “The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last,” the actor captioned the post.

kim kills it!

“They kept making eyes at each other”- SOURCE Poured into a hot pink catsuit, Kim Kardashian kicked off her Saturday Night Live hosting duties on October 9 with a brutal monologue aimed at her family, her ex-husband – and herself. “I know, I’m surprised to see me here, too. I mean, I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time,” Kardashian began, referring to her infamous 2007 sex tape. “No-one told me it was even premiering. It must have slipped my mum’s mind.” She also took playful jabs at Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble, who reportedly stood and bowed in the audience when she referred to him as a “gold-digger”, and joked about her break-up with Kanye West. She called him “the richest Black man in America, a talented legit…

adele in her own words

She’s been through a huge amount of change in recent years, going through a painful divorce, losing over 45kg and finding love again – and now Adele has finally opened up about it all in her first interview in five years with both British and US Vogue. “I’m still the same person”- ADELE While the 33-year-old has kept a relatively low profile for the past few years, her incredible weight loss hasn’t gone unnoticed. Adele dropped over 45kg over two years, but she insists it was never about the weight. “It was because of my anxiety,” she explained to Vogue. “Working out, I would just feel better. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone.” Although she’s previously…

sam frost’s anti-vax backlash

“I don’t want you to judge me”- FROST New South Wales may have celebrated its first day of “freedom” in months on October 11, but Sam Frost wasn’t among the revellers – having gone to ground after sharing her controversial stance on vaccinations just days prior. The Home and Away star, 32, took to Instagram on October 9 to post a tearful video calling for “compassion” and “empathy” for those who have chosen not to have the COVID-19 jab. “I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing,” she said in the five-minute clip. “But I feel like it’s getting to a point now in the world where there’s a lot of segregation, a lot of harsh judgment, and it’s taking its toll on…

still going strong!

They’ve been back together for over six months, but the heat between Affleck and his on-again love Jennifer Lopez is showing no signs of cooling off just yet. The singer, 52, was on hand to support her beau on October 9 as she escorted him to the New York City premiere of his new movie, The Last Duel. The stars looked absolutely smitten as they cosied up to one another and kissed during their red carpet appearance. While the spotlight was firmly on Affleck, who co-wrote the period drama with good friend Matt Damon, 51, Lopez didn’t mind taking a step back for the night. “They will make every effort they can to come out and support the other,” a source says.…
