    The Real Housewives of Melbourne cast - L-R: Andrea Moss, Lydia Schiavello, Jackie Gillies, Janet Roach, Gina Liano and Chyka Keebaugh.

    “The Real Housewives of Melbourne” won’t hit TV screens until 2014, but viewers can now guess the drama that will unfold on the show based on the recently revealed cast. Based on the popular U.S. reality show, the Australian franchise is set to feature the pampered lifestyle of six affluent women who will “have Australia talking.”

    Foxtel has announced the six women who are joining the cast of the show formerly known as “The Real Housewives of Australia,” and if there’s anything that viewers of the series franchise in the U.S. know, it’s that the cast were picked because they promise to be controversial in the show.

    The Real Housewives of Melbourne features a fabulous array of privileged, powerful, and glamorous women and is sure to be compelling viewing embracing all the drama and extravagance, triumphs, and pitfalls we have come to love about the Real Housewives franchise,” Brian Walsh, Foxtel Executive Director of Television, said, as per TV Tonight.

    We settled on Melbourne because it had the strongest selection of women – colourful identities with the most lavish of lifestyles and who are prepared to talk and not hold back! I think we have a very special group of women who will have Australia talking.

    The reality show is now in production, but there’s no definite air date yet. Foxtel’s Arena channel will premiere the show in early 2014.

    The cast of “The Real Housewives of Melbourne”:

    Andrea Moss– A former TV journalist in New York, Andrea now runs a multi-million dollar plastic surgery and cosmetic business in Toorak with her husband, Dr Chris Moss, who is regarded as one of the world’s finest facial plastic surgeons. She’s also a mum to three children under 11.

    Gina Liano– One of Melbourne’s top barristers, Gina is a single mother of two, and a sister to designers Bettina and Teresa Liano.

    Lydia Schiavello– An interior design and decoration student at RMIT University, Lydia is recently married to well known architect and CEO Andrew Norbury. She leads a diverse lifestyle and loves spending time with her family, which is composed of her six children and step-children.

    Janet Roach– Described as “fabulous and fun,” Janet, a millionaire property developer, is living her life to the fullest as she rediscovers herself after leaving husband number two overnight. She’s a mum of two adult boys, aged 25 and 29.

    Chyka Keebaugh– A mother of two teenagers, Chyka is a co-owner of one of the country’s largest and most successful and extravagant event companies, The Big Group and The Design Depot.

    Jackie Gillies– Wife of Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies, Jackie is the youngest of the cast. She’s not only the wife of a rock royalty, she’s also a celebrity psychic.

    Wow. How overwhelmingly... underwhelming. After the penultimate episode being so amazing, this was such a disappointment, both in the reveal and in Linden's BS at the end. :(

    We've got an Oscar host! The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced this morning that Ellen DeGeneres would return to the Academy Awards as emcee, marking her second hosting stint. What are we to make of this news? Here are five immediate thoughts I had about why AMPAS picked DeGeneres … and what it will mean for the next Oscarcast.


    1. The new Academy president wants to convey stability.
    On Tuesday night, AMPAS elected a new president in Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the first African-American to nab the title and only the third woman. The next morning, Boone Isaacs told reporters that her top priority would be finding the next Oscar host … and boy, she didn't waste any time! Admittedly, it helped that producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan were returning for this year's Oscarcast — that pick was announced back in April, and the two men had definitely been closing in on a host since — but today's news will reassure the Academy that Boone Isaacs moves quickly.


    2. No more misogyny
    The day after last year's Oscars, all anybody could talk about was host Seth MacFarlane's misogynistic jokes; as Vulture's Margaret Lyons put it then, "This wasn't an awards ceremony so much as a black-tie celebration of the straight white male gaze." Suffice it to say, then, that there's no chance of DeGeneres scripting or performing a song as controversial as MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs." DeGeneres is also the first woman to host the Oscars on her own since … well, since her solo stint in 2006. (Before that, it was Whoopi Goldberg in 2001.) Perhaps Boone Isaacs realized that the historically female Oscar audience deserved a little respect.


    3. The Academy will stop chasing the young audience … for now.
    Over the past few years, AMPAS has gone to great lengths to pick a host who'd make some noise: Whether it was the pairing of James Franco and Anne Hathaway in 2011, the aborted choice of Eddie Murphy as host for the 2012 Oscars, or Seth MacFarlane's pick last year, the Academy has seemed hell-bent on finding a host who might draw curious viewers— particularly, the elusive young male demographic — to the telecast. The 55-year-old DeGeneres signals a shift in thinking; we've seen her do this thing before, so the curiosity factor is nil, and young men aren't exactly her core audience. It wouldn't surprise me if AMPAS once again goes for an outside-the-box pick next year, but for now, the awards organization seems to have made peace with the idea of an Oscarcast that's comfy, familiar, and defiantly older-skewing.



    Two more thoughts by Vulture at the ( SOURCE )


    I, for one, don't mind at all that Ellen is hosting. Not exactly the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler HBIC hostess combo I was praying for, but Ellen's still a legit and decent choice, imo.





    Et tu, ONTD? Are you happy/sad/violently pissed that Ellen is hosting next year's Oscars?

    It is reported that Kylie Minogue is in talks to become a mentor on BBC One's music talent show The Voice UK, following the departures of Jessie J and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue.

    Daily Star Sunday quotes a show source as saying:"Show execs have put Kylie at the top of their hit list. She's still a huge name in the pop industry and has over 25 years' music experience."

    The source added: "Kylie is preparing to reinvent herself again after signing to Jay-Z's management firm Roc Nation, so it will all depend on timings and whether she can fit in the show around her release and promo schedule."

    A spokesperson for the singer declined to comment.

    Other names to be linked to a mentor role for the third series include Paloma Faith and Will Young.

    Inside Edition spoke with Shea Allen, a TV reporter who was fired after her personal blog went viral.

    In case you're unaware of Shea Allen's story, up until a few days ago she was an investigative reporter in Huntsville, Alabama.

    That ended, both the good and bad, as soon as she published a post to her personal blog called "Confessions of a Red-Headed Reporter," which both laid out and ever-so-gently riffed on the real life of a small-market reporter.

    Shea said she was fired summarily: “I thought my performance had warranted at least a conversation,” she told Redd. “I certainly didn’t think it would come to this,” she told Janet Shamlian on Today.

    After being hired as an honorary coach for the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, 8-year-old Jack Bolton was at a loss for words.

    That's not to say that Coach Bolton was speechless.

    In preparation for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Panthers turning his dream into a reality, Bolton penned a pregame speech to share with the team. But after the overwhelming experience of signing his contract, getting his gear and then spending time with his heroes in the locker room prior to Fan Fest, he couldn't bring himself to deliver his inspiring words.

    Still, his mere presence inspired the Panthers even before head coach Ron Rivera stepped in and read Bolton's speech.



    "He was a little too nervous to read it, but when Coach Rivera read it, hearing the response of the team was pretty awesome," said Jack's mother, Holly. "He's such a huge Panthers fan. He keeps up with everything they're doing."

    After taking the field through the players' tunnel with Rivera at his side, Coach Bolton literally kept up with what his favorite team was doing, keeping stats on the sideline while keeping his whistle and challenge flag at the ready. In between his coaching duties, he collected autographs, memorabilia and most memorably hugs, handshakes and high-fives.

    By the end of practice, Bolton had become so popular that his favorite player, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, knelt down and asked Bolton for his autograph.

    "It's a pretty special day," said Jack's father, John. "The dimensions of this wish just go on and on. Just to be in the stadium was super-special, but this is unbelievable. I don't know how they pulled it together."

    Coach Bolton knows that football teams face obstacles all the time, and his personal obstacle is one he tries to tackle head-on every day. Bolton has spinal muscular atrophy, a disease that severely impacts his mobility and respiratory health.

    His parents are both carriers of the disease, meaning there's a one-in-four chance that each of their offspring will contract the disease. Coach Bolton's older sister, Eleanor, was diagnosed with the disease at age 2, about a month before he was born with it.

    The long-term prognosis for the siblings steadily improves each year.

    "There's no cure yet, but it's coming," John Bolton said. "We will have it in our lifetime no doubt because they've regenerated what they're missing. Now it's a matter delivering the cells to the body.

    "We're very optimistic that even if the cure isn't here for a while that they'll be fine."

    Coach Bolton has loved football his whole life, but because of his physical challenges, he had to find a different way of getting into the game.

    "He's been coaching his friends at recess for several years, lining them up and calling plays," Holly Bolton said. "He's very interested in coaching, so when he got to make a wish, he knew exactly what he wanted to do. He wanted to coach the Panthers."

    i'm not really a panthers fan but i really want to see them succeed this year (bc cam newton). HTTR sisters and my soft spot for the eagles continues

    Charlie Day says the plan may have changed, but Guillermo del Toro told him who one of the villains was going to be in Pacific Rim 2.

    A successful opening in China makes Pacific Rim a more international hit than it was domestically. The linked report says Warner Brothers is now thinking about a sequel. Good timing for me, as Charlie Day was with the Television Critics Association for the new season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” today and I had a one on one interview with him.

    Day shared the sequel talk that he heard from Guillermo del Toro on the set of Pacific Rim, which was a shocking turn for his scientist character Newt. “I remember when I first met with him that he liked the idea of Newt becoming a bit of a villain in the second film,” Day said. “But, I think over the course of making the film, and the way the character resonated with the audience, I don’t think he would want to turn him into a villain now, but I really have no idea.”

    To put this in perspective, Day said del Toro shared a lot of ideas that changed through the creative process. “Guillermo is one of these guys that his mind is so active that he might have an idea about something and then it’s a completely different idea five minutes later.”

    In CraveOnline’s interview with Day this summer Day shared his hopes that Newt would get a jaeger to pilot in the sequel. He still wants one, only now he elaborates on ideas to copilot one in a drift with fellow scientist Gottlieb (Burn Gorman).

    “I’m hopeful that we get to drive a big punching robot,” Day said. “I think traditionally in those comics, sometimes the science guys put together a cheap, dorky version of one of the robots so maybe we’ll get to do something like that.


    Day is managing expectations though. The Chinese box office is good news, but nothing is guaranteed. “I also don’t know if it would ever get made. I think because there’s no one in a cape it might hurt our chances of making another one. We’ll see. Look, I would love to do it. Hopefully if it keeps performing this well overseas we’ll get to find out.”

    You'd think a Victoria's Secret model is comfortable in bras, right? Wrong, according to Behati Prinsloo.

    In an interview with the New York Daily News, Behati confessed that she prefers not to wear a bra -- aside from when she's working, of course -- and encourages other women to take them off. Of the all-natural look, she says:

    "I don't see the huge hoo-ha around it. Everybody has the same [body parts]. It's a body, it’s beautiful. Don't go naked, but if you're not wearing a bra and it's appropriate, totally."


    Being a Victoria's Secret Angel sure has it's perks -- the future Mrs. Adam Levine admits she owns more than 50 bras. Still, Behati would likely toss them all in favor of frolicking free. Don't worry, Victoria's Secret: We're sure Behati will happily model your underwear.

    Paris Hilton, the pulchritudinous entrepreneurial popstar, is busier than ever! In addition to working on her new album, Paris is opening a hotel in the Philippines, putting out her sixteenth fragrance, and just played the first show of her month long residency at iconic Ibiza club Amnesia (buy tickets here)

    We caught up with Paris at the Asphalt Yacht Club Launch Event on July 27 in Los Angeles, where she dished about her upcoming projects, working with Lil Wayne on her album, her favorite summer trends, and much more.


    How has your summer been going?
    I’m having so much fun! I finished my music video two days ago and I saw it for the first time last night and it looks amazing so I’m really excited about that.

    Any favorite summer TV shows, movies, books or songs?
    I don’t have much time to watch TV but I do love Revenge. Thats a really great show. I love “Get Lucky” by Pharrell and “Blurred Lines”. This is the End was hilarious. So funny! A book I’ve read three times now is The Power of Now. I just really love that book. I think it’s so inspirational and it’s something that I love reading all the time. I like watching Simple Life all the time. My boyfriend and I will just old episodes and laugh. It just brings back a lot of fun memories.

    Any favorite summer trends?
    Really bright neon colors! I’m wearing a lot of hot pink, neon yellow, and things that really stand out.

    What have you been working on recently?
    I’m releasing my album soon and I’m opening my own property, a hotel in the Philippines. I have seventeen product lines, I’m about to release my sixteenth fragrance, and I’m just keeping busy! I try to do them all differently. I have sixteen fragrances now so I try to always make them a little different. We came up with a really amazing concept and a great name. I just picked the bottle yesterday and I’m excited about it.

    How was it working with Lil Wayne?
    He’s so awesome. He’s so down to earth and chill and so talented. He can just write on the spot and come up with these amazing verses. The song that we did together is so incredible and I’m so happy about it. I was surprised at how intelligent he was and he was just such a gentleman. When you meet some people you don’t really know what to expect and with him, he was just such a kind person with a big heart and I really love him.

    What do you think of the new addition to the Royal family?
    I think it’s amazing that they have a new little Prince. I’m sure he is going to be beautiful and I’m so happy for them. They are such a lovely couple. I love the name George. I think it’s part of the family and it’s nice to stick with tradition.

    + Video of Lil Wayne performing at Paris' birthday party earlier this year has emerged!

    Apparently the guy who started it all ain't shit either. Here he is linking everyone to his radio show on the subject.



    While his feeling of missing a former friend may be sincere, Patrice's widow doesn't feel the same way.

    Kinda disturbed by all the people supporting Kain on twitter and YouTube. They probably saw Grown Ups 2 opening night as well... I hope someone like Louis CK addresses this and destroys him. Patrice O'Neal Unreleased on iTunes August 20!

    Producer Adi Shankar and director Phil Joanou generated a buzz last year at Comic-Con International with the premiere of “Dirty Laundry,” a brutal short film that saw The Punisher star Thomas Jane reprise his role as a weary Frank Castle who only wanted to wash his clothes. This year, Shankar returned with a follow-up of sorts with writer/director Joe Lynch’s “Truth in Journalism,” which turns the camera on another Marvel character: a certain “Eddie B.,” played by True Blood star Ryan Kwanten. It’s now available online.

    It’s clever, depicting a French documentary crew as it follows the disgraced, and demented, journalist from crime scene to crime scene. Although “Truth in Journalism” isn’t as violent as “Dirty Laundry,” it definitely takes a dark turn toward the end. And in keeping with Marvel movie tradition, you should be sure to stick around for the end credits …

    Worth noting: “Punisher: Dirty Laundry” will help kick off the ninth annual HollyShorts Film Festival next month in Hollywood.

    Whatever skeletons are in Lady Gaga's closet will stay there -- after a judge agreed to have sensitive info filed under seal ... info which the pop star says would seriously damage her career.

    TMZ broke the story ... Gaga begged the court earlier this year to seal documents in a lawsuit between her former BF/producer Rob Fusari and former friend Wendy Starland ... documents that have not yet been filed but Gaga knows are coming.

    Gaga felt the information could harm her ... by exposing details of a financial settlement she made with Fusari YEARS ago, in addition to other sensitive personal info.

    A NY judge has sided with Gaga and ordered the docs sealed, pointing out that both Gaga and Rob want the info under wraps. So it's pretty obvious ... Wendy's the one with the damaging info.

    The judge made it clear -- the information could definitely "seriously injure" Gaga.

    Kind of makes you wonder what it is, huh?

  • 'People think I'm just this ratchet white girl... but I work really hard': Miley Cyrus opens up about misconceptions as she poses for leggy new shoot




    She's one of the most controversial young stars in the industry at the moment.

    But Miley Cyrus has opened up in a new interview, insisting that most views of her are entirely misconceived.

    The 20-year-old singer posed in a pair of white knickers, black heels and leaf print top as she said that the party girl image she has obtained over the years is entirely unfair.

    She said: 'People have this misconception of me that I'm just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I'm just this ratchet white girl, and I'm not.

    'I work really really hard, I'm just in a different environment. I'm young and living and in LA which is everyone's dream, you know.'

    Miley also said that she had considered dropping her surname and going just by her first name, but eventually decided against it.

    She said: 'I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley, but there's something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name.

    'I'm living it to the fullest. Rather than taking a blessing and making it a curse, it's just like this is what this name is now.'

    Miley has reinvented herself since the release of her second studio album back in 2008, and has already enjoyed huge success with her new single We Can't Stop.

    The catchy track has already shot to the top of the UK iTunes chart, and has the biggest pre-orders online of the year so far.

    It also looks likely that Miley will get her first UK number one with the track in next weekend's charts.

    Miley Cyrus defends Justin Bieber, saying she would behave the same if she were him



    Miley Cyrus has stopped shaving her head and getting tattoos and twerking on stage and having a really ridiculously on-again off-again engagement to Liam Hemsworth and being a Disney star gone-a-bit-wrong for just about long enough to say that she was in Justin Bieber’s position, i.e. ’19 and worshipped and rich’, then she would go off the rails, too. For reference, Miley Cyrus is 20 and worshipped and rich. Completely different ballgame.

    “Justin started as a baby,” said Miley, who also started as a baby. “He had a lot of success early and he’s trying to adjust,” continued Miley, who also had a lot of success early and is trying to adjust.

    “If I was Justin Bieber I’d be walking around with my top off too,” said Miley, who often walks around in basically one of those gym tops and some booty shorts and that is about it. “He’s looking good, he’s 19, he can have any girl he wants and can do pretty much anything he wants,” said Miley, who– well, you get it now. THEY ARE BASICALLY THE SAME.

    Justin has been busy lately spitting on fans and weeing in mop buckets and apologising to former American presidents and taking his top off and doing stuff like that, though, which is ‘a bit much’ even if he is a multi-million selling pop maestro.

    “I think it’s important not to abuse it,” Miley told the Daily Star, “but everyone does dumb stuff when they get messed up.” Oh! He also left a monkey in Germany! We forgot about that!

    Mutya Buena has dismissed a suggestion made by Jade Ewen that all six members of the Sugababes could unite for a joint tour.

    Ewen, who replaced last original member Keisha Buchanan in the trio back in 2009, said this week that she thought the brand was "pretty much done", but also put it out there that the three current members could tour with the three old members.

    Those old members - Buena, Siobhan Donaghy and Buchanan - have reformed as Mutya Keisha Siobhan, and release their 'debut' single 'Flatline' on September 1.

    Asked for her thoughts on the idea of a joint tour, Buena told the Daily Star: "That’s frigging hilarious, as it would never happen. Just no."

    And asked if they considered calling themselves Sugababes for their reformation, Buchanan said: "If we’d wanted to we’d have gone for it. I have rights in the name, so it wouldn’t have been difficult."

    But Siobhan added: “It’s about the three of us, not a brand someone can try to manipulate. We never wanted the name.”

    Alexa Chung might be half-Chinese but she looked to Japan for some home essentials on a recent shopping trip.



    The TV presenter was doing the rounds in SoHo, New York, and had stopped by Muji on her retail travels with a few girlfriends.

    But wearing a white blouse and blue A-line skirt, Alexa, 29, still instills a sense of British style everywhere she goes.


    The former Popworld host, accessorised her elegant look with a simple heart shaped necklace and a quilted Chanel bag with a silver chain.

    Her iPhone case seemed to be from textile designer, Orla Kiely's collection, featuring her signature multi-stem pattern.
    But while Alexa always seems to be consistent to her bookish yet quirky, sophisticated style, her make up bag isn't given the same sort of lasting treatment.






    Speaking to InStyle, the former model said: 'I'm even more fickle with make-up; I like to experiment and mix my own lipsticks and eye shadows - a trick I learnt while modelling.


    'And I love a bright red lip. I'm not great at looking after my skin, but I do use a good moisturiser, drink lots of water and try not to booze too much.'

    And just like her penchant for designer pieces, Alexa loves premium make-up brands, but often forgets when she's already bought certain items.

    'I buy a lot of YSL Beaute lipsticks in bright coral and pink shades. I keep getting the same colours though. It's only once I get home that I realise I already bought that one,' she told the fashion magazine.


    'I live in New York so I go to the salon to get my nails done. My favourite colours are Essie's Tarte Deco and Lilacism.'

    Lieutenant James Skinner



    The mystery of serial killer Pied Piper was solved in Sunday's two-hour closer.

    The Killing closed out its mystery with an intense two-hour finale — delivering on the promise to reveal the killer at the end of the season.

    It's been a rollercoaster ride for AMC's Seattle-set drama, with the Rosie Larsen murder mystery spanning over two seasons. When season three kicked off in June, however, executive producer/showrunner Veena Sud promised viewers — hesitant or not — that The Killing would wrap up the introduced case by the end of the 12-episode run. They came through on that promise.

    In what began with a reunion of Seattle Police Department's Detective Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) and Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos), the revived drama embarked on a brand-new case: identifying the serial killer Pied Piper, who targeted young teens living on the streets. The journey to the final two hours of the season wasn't without its twists and turns, including the execution of death-row inmate Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard) the previous week.

    In true Killing form, the suspicious party seemed to be Holder's former partner, the boisterous Detective Carl Reddick (Gregg Henry). The evidence, as Holder and Linden laid out during the finale, was stacked against him. Why? Reddick lived next to the serial killer's first victim and he took Bullet's calls prior to her murder. But Reddick wasn't the Pied Piper.

    The reveal came when Linden went to Lieutenant James Skinner's (Elias Koteas) house to discuss the disappearance of Ray's young son, Adrian Seward, after failing to get a hold of Skinner via phone after multiple attempts. When Skinner's family returned home, Linden noticed Kallie's unique blue ring on the finger of Skinner's daughter. It could only mean one thing: Skinner was the Pied Piper.

    It didn't end there. Linden held Skinner at gunpoint as they traveled to the isolated cabin where Adrian was supposedly being held. (He was actually at his late mother's grave, it was later revealed.) Once they arrived at the cabin, with Holder on the scene, Linden shot Skinner point blank — twice — killing him. Chilling. "No, no, no, no," was all Holder could muster. Then the screen faded to black.

    The Killing is as much about the journey than it is about the resolution of the mystery — and that certainly held true in season three. Should the show return for a fourth season (its ratings are on par with season two), what does Linden's life-altering decision mean for her future?
