An Intimate Night With Dame Edna for Jenny Craig

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

I had the pleasure of spending a very intimate night with entertainment royalty – Dame Edna.

It was in the basement at the Civic Hotel in Sydney where I got to see the very endearing Dame Edna on stage speaking about Jenny Craig and how she, along with her Manager, Barry Humphries will strive to achieve their weight loss goal of 15kgs each.

In hysterics for much of the night, I can’t think of a time I have felt more privileged to have been graced by one of Australia’s greatest living treasures in this very private and rare opportunity. A good 45 minute session with Dame Edna was exactly what everyone in the room needed. Allowing questions from Trevor Ashley, Peter Everett, Mike Goldman and Glen-Marie Frost, Dame Edna answered with quick witted and supremely detailed answers, all with the poise and elegance of a legend.

It wasn’t just Dame Edna who kept the photographers on their toes, the moment the scary Spice Girl Mel B and husband Stephen Belafonte arrived, the sound of flashes and murmurs “Mel, Mel, look here, Mel”, “Oh my God, Mel B is here”, “Wow, it’s Mel B, she looks incredible” filled the room. And it was true. She looked incredible. With a body to salivate over, Mel B lost 15 kgs in 20 weeks after being ambassador for Jenny Craig.

I’ve met many international and local celebrities and I must say, I was a little star struck seeing Mel, but then I actually got to meet her and spend much of the evening with her and her hilariously extroverted husband. Mel B was so much fun, coming out with the funniest one liners, but also being an absolute sweetheart.

Other guests included my long time friend Peter Everett, Channel 10’s Breakfast presenters Andrew Rochford and Kathryn Robinson, Dr Nikki Goldstein, Trevor Ashley, Mike Goldman, Chucky Klapow and the gorgeous Glen-Marie Frost. Below are some photos of the silliness Dr Nikki and Peter Everett got up to with the crazy couple.

What an amazing night – but if you want the X-Rated uncensored version of the night… Contact me privately! 🙂

Cheryl Cole Has The X Factor!

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

She is stunning, she dresses immaculately, hair is always perfect, great tan, amazing body and also a judge on X Factor UK, she is the ultimate pop star. Looking great and speaking well on television might be all well and good, but can she sing?

Cheryl Cole has released her solo album 3 Words which she has worked on closely with features on four tracks on the album, with the most recently released track being 3 Words, which is probably the most played song on my iPhone to date. This song is so amazing! The first time I heard it, in the first 25 seconds I was unsure about it and thought it was crap, until the bassy beats started and completely transformed the song. It is amazing!

When I listen to the album as a whole, I think of a few different people. It’s a little bit of Tina Cousins, mixed with Geri Halliwell sound and style (including the album cover pictured, from Geri’s Look At Me single). I tend to get a little bit of the tackiness of Paris Hilton’s album, but in a weird way, Cheryl can pull it off. Her tackiness is fun and fresh. But her tackiness is nothing like Katie Price.

If you are after an album with deep and meaningful lyrics, spine chilling vocals and unique sounds, I’d suggest you look elsewhere. If you are after something that is just a little bit of fun, to sing along to in the car with friends, or dance along to while cleaning the house, then this one is for you!

The song Heartbreaker with is also another cool song. It’s not great, it’s just cool. It’s a very end of high school sounding song… like it’s something you’d expect to be the theme song for the movie Mean Girls.

Stand Up is one of the slower songs on 3 Words, which has a great feeling to it. It makes you feel happy in a mellowed way.

Look, I like the album, I don’t love it. There’s only one real stand out song 3 Words, the rest are just simple songs. There is nothing spectacular or serious about the vocals, the music and beats have all been heard before, that’s about as deep as I think I can get when I hear this album.

As much as this review seems like a contradiction, I really enjoyed the album. As I mentioned, it’s fun and fresh and doesn’t have anything serious to it. It’s simple.

What do I rate it? Tough one… but out of 10, I give it 6.5.
