get your groove on

Being friends with Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky must be a pretty good gig. Where do we sign up? Their posse of pals includes A-listers like Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barrosso, who holidayed with them over the Easter long weekend (see p. 28), but also some regular Aussie mums and dads. This enviable circle of friends love long lazy days on the beach in Byron Bay, hanging out at cool music festivals and heading off on family holidays together—whether it be back-to-basics camping on remote beaches or jetting off to exotic resorts. It makes me think I should probably aim to do more cool stuff with my own friends, but maybe without the string bikinis and matching tattoos.…

what went wrong

To most of the world, they seemed as happy as ever: On March 18, Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, shared photos from a weekend of family fun on Instagram—complete with face painting done by their “fairy artist” daughter Everly, 4. Then on March 24, Everly attended her first public event with her parents—the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, where she and her mum watched her dad get in a snowball fight with the audience. But in reality, the couple who fans watched fall in love onscreen in the hit 2006 dance movie Step Up were facing the end of their nearly nine-year marriage. “We have lovingly chosen to separate,” they announced in a joint statement on April 2. “We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have…

secrets exposed

In a week when she was focused on the finer points of her upcoming wedding to Prince Harry—the bride and groom announced details of the locally sourced flowers (including Princess Diana’s favourite white roses) for the big day—Meghan Markle’s life-before-Harry was spotlit in the frenzy of publicity surrounding a new book by biographer Andrew Morton. From the abrupt ending of her first marriage to film producer Trevor Engelson—Morton claims she posted her wedding and engagement rings back to him after she moved out—to her obsession with Princess Diana, Meghan’s past is dissected in Meghan: A Hollywood Princess. Excerpts published ahead of the biography’s April 12 release (April 19 in Australia) contain interviews with sources including former friends and classmates. On the subject of her previous marriage to Engelson, Morton wrote that…

inside the cheating scandal

Heads rolled, the coach quit and the remaining members of the Australian Test Team have been left “devastated,” a source close to the squad tells WHO. Since the cheating scandal that sensationally played out on Cape Town’s Newlands Cricket Ground on March 24, captain Steve Smith, 28, and vice captain Dave Warner, 31, have lost their jobs playing international and domestic cricket for a year, and batsman Cameron Bancroft, 25, was handed a 9-month ban. “I know I’ll regret this for the rest of my life; I’m absolutely gutted,” said Smith of his role in the ball-tampering incident during the Third Test of the South African tour. “I made a serious error of judgement, and I now understand the consequences.” At press time, however, Smith and alleged instigator Warner were reportedly…

our little miracle

Four years after suffering a devastating spinal-cord injury during a rugby league game and six months after achieving his goal of standing at his wedding, former Newcastle Knights rugby league player Alex McKinnon has announced that he and his wife, Teigan, are expecting their first child together. Revealing the news via social media, McKinnon posted a photo of himself and Teigan, 24, with an ultrasound image and the message: “Baby McKinnon coming soon.” Expanding on the news on her Instagram account, the ecstatic primary-school teacher posted the same photograph, saying she was “so overwhelmed with joy” to be able to announce her pregnancy. In a separate post the couple indicated their baby was due in October. Since a tackle in a 2014 NRL game between the Knights and Melbourne Storm left…

my shock decision

GOING INTO THE BACHELOR IN PARADISE ROSE ceremony that aired on Ten on April 3, Jake Ellis and his fellow male contestants had a plan. But when Mack Reid selected Ali Oetjen instead of Leah Costa, Jake ended up last and choosing between fiery Florence Moerenhout, who had saved him from elimination over Davey Lloyd, and new arrival Megan Marx.“I definitely did want Flo to stay,” Jake tells WHO, “but honestly, the way we were going, I would’ve hated my time in Paradise and only the next week I would’ve been the one on the chopping block.” Megan had earlier scored a date with Jake, the contestant she blindly selected from a compatibility menu, and sparks flew.“We did talk about Flo briefly and he made it sound like it was completely…
