Italy via New Jersey

MTV Italy has acquired the rights to air Season 1 of the Jersey Shore.
I have been saying for months they should have sent them to Italy for Season 2! Can you just imagine them trying to speak the language and just function in another country!


Do you think she knows its not a real dog????

What would Uncle Jesse say?

Oh my goodness. Stephanie Tanner went from Full house to Full Blouse!

Jennifer "Love" Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt is writing a book that will give the reader "relationship advice."
Ok just because your middle name is "Love" doesn't mean you know anything about it and also, hasn't she been engaged about 75 times but never married? Is the best person to be giving advice?

A long way from Stars Hallow...

My oh my, Dean sure has grown up! I am still mad at Rory for not choosing him on Gilmore Girls, but Jared Padalecki is not a little high school boy anymore!

Sad news

I admit it jumped the shark recently, but Nip/Tuck has been cancelled. Damn. What am I going to do without Dr. Troy & Dr. McNamara? I was going to make a joke that Julian McMahon can always go home & be on Home and Away bc he was the only aussie actor to not have appeared on that or Neighbours, but I was wrong, even he was on Home and Away!

Happy News

True Blood is back! I am so happy the show has returned, I just love it, and it has nothing to do with Ryan Kwaten, the hot aussie boy on it. Ok well maybe it has a LITTLE bit to do with that, but I still love the show!

Why I love the E! channel

I refuse to discuss Heidi & Spencer on here as they are a waste of space, but I L-O-V-E the fact that E! ran a survey & 94% of their audience voted to keep the network from talking about the Pratts so they are now banned from E!. YAY. Now I have two reasons to love E!, that & Joel McHale on The Soup.

Come on-a my House, my house, I'm gonna give you candy...

Sometimes the rest of the world catches up with me:
"House has become the most watched television show in the world. It has more then 81 million viewers in 66 countries."

Hmm...I wonder why...Sigh, I still love him from when he was Billy Kennedy...

Two sides of David Beckham

Seriously, he needs to keep his hair long and wear a suit from now on!

Wyclef was in love with a stripper...

But this guy wasn't.   "A Florida man is suing a strip club in Palm Beach, saying a dancer kicked him in the head while he was at the bar." Ok, one, I love that they say "dancer" and not stripper, and two, isn't that a risk you take going to a place like that! 

J Lo is an actress? who knew?

Apparently Jennifer Lopez was nervous before going back to work bc she thought she forgot how to act during her maternity leave. Ummmm, I am pretty sure, no actually, I am positive, she didn't know how to act before she got pregnant!

That is really hot coffee!

I read this story in the newspaper the other day: "A fire destroyed a topless coffee shop in Maine."  The headline was "Coffee shop disaster."  I am pretty sure the topless coffee shop was a "disaster" before the fire...

Australian music in the US

Fyi, our Kylie is touring in US this year (I have my tickets) YAAAAAAAAYYY. Keith Urban who is also on tour (I have those tickets too) will be appearing on the American Idol finale tomorrow. Guy Sebastian (I saw him last week!) has a song that is all over NBC called Like it Like That & it is very catchy!


This week I am so in love with the Shazam iphone app that I want to marry it. You just hold the iphone up to the radio & it tells you the name of the song that is on as well as the artist!

The financial gains alone should make you support this!!

Congrats South Australia

Majestic Roof Garden Hotel in Adelaide was rated the best hotel in Australia. Well done Adelaide! This makes up for being the "murder capital of the world"! 
I kid, you know I love you!

Oh Hugh Jackman

Our Hugh has finally passed his driving test in the states! Apparently he celebrated by going into a deli after the test, & buying a sandwich & a bunch of Lottery tickets. REALLY? I love you Hugh but look at your life, I think you already won the lottery! :)

Smart women = smart sex?

A new study has shown that women who are intelligent & can express their feeling have better sex lives. The women who are most in touch with their feelings have twice as many orgasms.
Hmmmm, finally I am glad that I am so smart!

Like Donna Summer said...

Enough is enough. We get it, you need attention, but this outfit is just not necessary!

R.I.P. Bea

So sad, goodbye Dorothy.  

Who wants to Twitter Ashton?

Apparently one million people bc that is how many followers he has on Twitter. For the love of God, why do that many people want to hear his thoughts? I am still waiting for him to say he is punking Demi Moore and he is really with some 21 year old.

Remembering Steve Irwin

Russell Crowe is asking people sign a petition to save land that was protected in Steve Irwin's name. The land is being threatened by a mining company that will affect the environment and the ecosystem. Go here to sign the petition!:

Teen idols

Somewhere, a teen girl just screamed when she saw this pic. Zac Efron and the Jonas Brothers! OMG.

We should all dream a dream

I am sure you have all seen this by now, but just in case, so amazing!

Ok Hugh, here I am

Hugh Jackman has announced on Twitter that he is running a contest where the winner will get $100,000 to a charity of their choice. They just have to state their case in 140 characters or less. Ok:
I deserve the $ so that I can start my charity-American girl needs Australian man to procreate with.

My Keith

Keith Urban, aka my husband, release a new cd this week called Defying Gravity. It landed at #1 on the Country charts and Billboard's Top 200 chart! yay!

Monday, April 06, 2009

This week I am loving...

The adorable boy on NBC's show Kings named Christopher Egan. Once again, even when I didn't really know, I somehow knew. I was loving him on the show, thinking he looks so All-American, when suddenly I thought something was off with his mouth. Turns out he was hiding his aussie accent! A Sydney boy who was once on Home and Away. (Naturally!)

Help the doggies

A no-kill animal shelter in Sydney is facing foreclosure. Please take a minute to go here and donate some money or if you are in the area some of you time. :(

K Rudd was K Rude

Looks like Kevin Rudd met with Obama when he was in the States. How could he not call me? I should have been sitting in the middle of them!

Sexiest Man on American television

TV Guide has named Simon Baker as the sexiest man on American tv. I just want to say, I completely agree...

Australia Zoo in trouble too?

Because of the global economic crisis, Australia zoo is laying off 26 staff members. That is crazy! I was mad about the economy before, but this is unacceptable!

It is a good thing she is pretty

because she doesn't sound like the brightest crayon in the box. Supermodel Christie Brinkley took her son to see West Side Story on Broadway in order to teach him about the danger of "gangs" OMG, I am not in a gang, but I am pretty sure the bloods and the crips don't act like this:

best clip ever

OMG, Rove, Peter Hellier, Hamish & Andy, Russell Brand and ZAC Efron. I die.

What I am loving this week

Russell Brand. I just can't get enough of him lately. I just think he is hilarious. Also, I am loving this pic holding the koala in front of the Sydney Opera house.

Absolutely NOT Fabulous

I am horrified the America is trying to remake Ab/Fab. Sorry but NO ONE can replace Jennifer Saunders!

Sorry I have been slack

I haven't posted in forever bc I have been busy/lazy. I have also been busy deleting Chris Brown songs from my ipod. Why is that animal not in jail yet? It literally makes me sick. ugh.

Video of Sam, I can't take it!

when they were reunited:

Sam the Koala

I still can't get over this little girl. Here is a pic of the firefighter & Sam the Koala being reunited. (see post below for original story). You can help other animals affected by the fires by donating to the RSPCA:

Why the dow was down!

Maybe the Dow was down today bc the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange! I am thinking the brokers were looking at them instead of the trading screens! ha

Help the victims of the bushfires

This firefighter giving this Koala water when he found her after the fire made me instantly teary eyed. The good news is she is at the vet & will be ok. If you are in Melbourne & want to help the animal victims of this tragedy, I read about two places where you can donate. 1. 4 Paws & More Pet Supplies in Keilor Park (60 Keilor Park Drive,) wish to advise that from Monday 8 February, they will accept  pet goods/pet food, that will be distributed to those who most need them. 2. The University of Melbourne has a collection point to help the animals (both domestic/native) in the Victorian bushfires. So if you have blankets,towels, sheets, animal food (cat, dog, bird etc), bowls or containers for water/food, you can drop them off at 215 Grattan Street by Friday. (Also, don't forget to help people, you can donate at

Fire down under

My heart goes out to all of the people that lost their lives or their homes in Australia. They are experiencing the worst fires in their history, entire towns were completely wiped out. It is so sad. You can donate money at


Congrats to The Veronica's who have entered the US top 100 Billboard charts this week! It is so weird for me to hear them on the radio in the states, but well done girls!

Celebrity stamps!

Celebrity fit club, celebrity circus, celebrity stamps! Australia has introduced a line of stamps with famous celebs on them. This should have been a reality show to compete for who would be on the stamp! Also, they left of some of my fave's, where is Bert Newton, Daniel Macpherson, anyone who died on Mcleod's Daughters....

No longer my "friend"

Sorry, I am so over Jennifer Aniston & whoever she is or isn't dating. I really could not care less. Then she was on a talk show the other day & said she started crying when she found a grey hair, and that just did it for me. Really? With all the things there could be to cry about, you are getting that upset over a grey hair? It is not like she is a real blonde anyway, get over yourself!

Poor pets!

It has been so hot in Australia, think 115 degrees for a week straight, even the koala's are suffering. Look at this little guy who wandered into a backyard to drink out of a dog's dish! Also, here is a great website if you want to adopt a koala:

Happy Monday!

The creator of Veronica Mars is writing a screenplay! "The one thing that I will say is where it will pick up. I think it would open just days before the Hearst College Graduation. So Veronica would be sort of at the end of her college career."

Living in a Barbie world

Ok seriously, this girl can never complain about the paparazzi or lack of privacy again, when she is driving around in a PINK Bentley. Seriously. 

Loving Leo

Leonardo Dicaprio will be the spokesperson for Tag Heuer watches. I am sure he is making a fortune for that job. The good news is he is donating that money to charity for environmental causes. That is one reason to love him. I think I still love him from this clip below:

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

it's a happy cry

Australia I love you...

BUT you really need to do something about these sharks! This photo was taken from a beach in NSW. That is way to close for comfort!

Move over Miley

I admit I have a Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana song on my ipod & I am not sure why people went crazy over her Vanity Fair photos last year (I didn't think they were that bad) or why people hate her. However when she was asked in an interview the other day about the car she just got for her 16th birthday, and she made a face and rolled her eyes bc the PORSCHE that she got was used (it was her mom's) that is when I lost it. Seriously there are kids are losing their homes bc their parents are out of work & this twit complains bc her Porsche was used? No. I am done with Miley now.

WTF of the Year - Australia edition

When asked about the movie AUSTRALIA, Nicole Kidman said in an interview this week: "I can't look at this movie and be proud of what I've done." And then she left the country because: "We ran because I didn't want to read anything. I didn't want to know. I saw my sister and my family and we saw Keith's family and then we were straight on a plane."
WOW. I am amazed that you are not proud of that movie that had so much riding on it for your country. I was really shocked by that. I know not everyone loved it but to say you are not proud of being in such an "aussie" movie is horrible. In my opinion. So Baz, call me for the sequel!

The Chaser are coming, the Chasers are coming!

The Chaser's War on Everything is coming to the US. Starting on Australia Day (January 26th) it will begin airing on the cable channel G4. This is one of my favorite Australian tv shows. It is hilarious. Suddenly dark dreary January has brightened up! See a quick sample below:

Sunday, January 04, 2009


It is not often Australia hurts me, but it broke my heart when I heard that a promoter there paid Paris Hilton, or as I call her the one that should not be named, $100,000 to appear at a party in Sydney. Why, why, why would you do this??? It just about killed me. They should have paid me! :)

A few days late....

but look how beautiful Sydney was on New Years! Sigh

Oh Poo

Mark Philippoussis will appear in a tournament at next month's Australian Open, and said that he is planning a return to the tennis circuit in 2009. Hmm, I guess that is what happens when your Age of Love reality dating show doesn't get picked up for another season....

Rove in the US...again

ROVE McManus is going to host a 1 hour long tv show in the US that will air on ABC next Wed 12/24. The show will be a countdown of pop culture highlights from the year.
I am happy for Rove, but don't want him to come here & become "americanized"! Have to run & set my tivo now...

I can't take how cute this kid is!!

V, or as I call it, Viva Australia!

V AUSTRALIA has started a ticket war with Qantas. They are selling fares from Australia to the US for $1199 return! I love Richard Branson!

Teen gossip

Demi Lovato, or Miley 2.0, wanted to declare that she NEVER kissed a Jonas Brother. Ok, I see that this is important to the world, so I declare that I never kissed a Jonas Brother either. Now everyone can get on with their lives again.

My heart will go on and on

OMG, Jack is alive and they are finally together! I knew the water wasn't that cold....

Ah, young love

In a recent interview, Pete Wentz, husband of Ashlee Simpson said the following about their first time: "It was the single best sexual encounter I've ever had. We were in the Soho Grand Hotel, and there was a mirror, and I was like, 'Oh my God, you're banging the girl of your dreams and you're watching it right now.' "
See my friends, romance is not dead!

Talk dirty to the strip club?

Apparently Marisa Tomei studied the girls from Bret Michaels' show Rock Of Love, to research her new role as a stripper in her upcoming film. W-H-A-T? Do you mean some of these girls were strippers??? I find that hard to believe...

In breaking British news...

Prince Harry turns his back on the royal family and auditions to be the newest member of The Village People for the comeback tour.

Turns out a lot of people agree with me!

AUSTRALIA, my island home

I don't listen to critics bc it is just one person's opinion. Here is my review of Australia the movie. I LOVED IT. Done. I don't know what the problem was that all of these "critics" had with it. I admit I am bias & yes some of the story was predictable & a bit cheesy, but so what? The little boy was so gorgeous & did an amazing job, Hugh Jackman was born for this role (I am so happy Russell Crowe passed on it) & our country looked beautiful. Some scenes looked like an ad for the Northern Territory. I laughed & cried, I think I cried bc I was happy in some parts, sad in others, & just homesick in others!
I was thinking maybe the critics/American audiences would struggle with not knowing much about Aboriginal culture & how it relates to the movie? I know most of my friends here wouldn't understand a "walkabout", so maybe that is what the critics didn't get? BUT I have to say, not to be mean, the real problem with Nicole is that her face does not move. It was kind of annoying me in the film, seriously not much emotion can be shown on you face when it is frozen. Oy.

Bottoms up!

Because of "tough economic times" a strip club in London is offering for companies to advertise their products on the strippers butts while they dance. OK, WTF? Who is going to go out & buy laundry detergent bc they saw it on Candy Cane's behind while she was shaking her money maker?

Summer of '69 or Winter 2008?

I admit that I loved Bryan 1985.  But a mother and son duo were stalking him this week in London. Seriously? Why on earth would you do that? I can see stalking Justin Timberlake or someone, but Bryan Adams? I guess it bc love "cuts like a knife"...
(I know, that was bad but I couldn't help it)


Even Brad looks bad with a mustache. Movember is over, get rid of this asap! Eek!

Chris Issak is alive?

I get why Australia loves Pink, I love Pink too. For American's who don't know, Pink is HUGE in AUS, she sells out stadiums.  BUT I don't get why Chris Issak is popular down under. He has a cd out right now that it top ten on the AUS charts! The last time I saw him he was frolicking on a beach with black sand.

Tim Tam-alicious!

Good news Aussie's in the US, for a limited only, Target stores in the US will be selling Tim Tams. Crikey! Get them before April 1st 2009 or you will have to get your mates to ship them over for you.
Happy Holidays!!

Australian Idol 2008

Ok so I am glad that out of the final two that Wes won, but seriously this was a great performance by Spano, in front of the Opera House, in the rain, singing my fave song. He should have won!

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Kath & Kim in the US

I really tried to be open minded when I watched the US version, but God it was just awful. I couldn't even make it through the whole second episode. I guess all of Australia agrees with me bc it has been taken off the air in OZ after 2 episodes! 
Good news is Summer Heights High starts airing on HBO on November 9th! YAY! Hopefully this will translate better.

Coffe, tea, or Double D's

A recent study found that %50 percent of women have a gene that links the size of their breasts to how much coffee they drink.
It shows that women who drink a lot of coffee during the day have smaller chests then those who don't.

And suddenly it makes sense why Pamela Anderson only drinks tea....

Paris, for cheap!

I am breaking my boycott of Paris for 2 reasons. 1. Who wears a shirt like this? 2. Walking down the street yesterday, a guy was selling perfume on the corner. This is what he said, "Paris Hilton for $5. Paris Hilton for sale for 5 bucks." And I thought, yeah, that sounds about right....

Thursday, October 16, 2008


All I can say about the debate last night was that I don't feel bad about Joe the plumber. He got more publicity last night then Paris's vagina. Seriously I will bet money that he will be on the cover of People Magazine this week, on Access Hollywood & probably the opening of some LA hotspot.
I don't want to talk about politics anymore bc I am so over it. So here is a non-political question to ponder...if Joe the Plumber, Joe Camel, Joe Six pack and Buffy the Vampire Slayer got into a fight...who would win?

I love these two people

Danity Kane Damaged Debate

I know everyone is talking about the presidential debates this week. But let's get to the real issue in country. Is Danity Kane really breaking up? Diddy put the smack down on Aubrey on the finale and I totally agree with him. I was hoping they would have asked someone in the audience the real question of the evening.."Do you, do you, do you have a first aid kit handy?" (That song gets stuck in my head like you would not believe)

Thursday, October 09, 2008

AB/Fab-solutely NOT!

Sweetie dahling, say it isn't so. The US is very close to creating an American version of the hit Brit series Absolutely Fabulous.  This would be disastrous! Ab/Fab is one of the only shows that make me laugh out loud every time I watch it.No one can replace the original and genius, Jennifer Saunders....

Happy Thursday

The National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the growing figure of debt that the US government owes. In case you are wondering, it is up to $10 TRILLION right now. I have to go practice my singing for my American Idol audition. If you can't invest in stocks, banks, or housing, I might as well invest in my voice. Oy vey.

Live blogging the Vice Presidential debate

Let's play a drinking game. Every time Sarah Palin says America, Americans, Hockey mom, Alaska or Maverick, we do a shot!

*Ok, it is 5 minutes in, I am already wasted.
*She just said "Let's do what our mother's told us when we got out first credit card, don't spend more then you have." Um, oh, ok, so now everyone in America is only going to pay cash? My mother also told me to wear a hat when it is cold outside or I will get sick. Turns out, you get sick from germs. Who knew?
*I think I am drunk from the shots, but she is really starting to look like Tina Fey..
*She says thus and therefore a lot. I think she is trying to sound "smart," it's not working. Maybe she should speak in Russian since she BFF with Putin. I hear he flies over for lunch on Tuesdays. Actually since Russia is "right over there" he might just swim over instead of fly.
*She just said she is "main street". Interesting, I just read her & the hubby have a net worth over a million $'s. Is that main street or Park Avenue?
*NEITHER of them support gay marriage? That is completely depressing. This is 2008. How can you be so ignorant? I guess it is ok for Britney to get married for 48 hours, but not for a gay couple who have been together for 20 years to be married. Sigh. My heart just broke for my gay friends.
*OMG, stop trying to act like a "Main street" mom. I don't know any mom's who shoot Moose! Oh, and I read newspapers, I can even name a couple of them. OMG, I should totally run for President!
*Why won't McCain sit down & meet with Spain? Who doesn't like tapas?
*Why is it that they can say "Ahmadinejad", but not the word "Nuclear"? Good God, buy a copy of Hooked on Phonics, works for me!
*ok, new game, every time she says "as Governor of the state of Alaska" do a shot! I think she has said that about 7,483,874 times by now.
*I have never been to Alaska, but I am pretty sure I don't want you to "Bring Wasilla to Washington" I would like Alaska to stay where it is, I watched Northern Exposure. Some of those people were scary.
*She just said "heck" and "doggone it". Is she going to go to Arnolds later & meet the Fonz for the sock hop?
*I am falling in love with Joe Biden.
*Again, she just called John a Maverick. 2 shots! Didn't she see Top Gun? A Maverick is not always a good thing. Didn't Kelly McGillis almost leave Maverick Pete Mitchell?
*I am so drunk right now.
*Biden just got choked up. I am completely in love. I love when men cry, it shows me they have emotions. (and no, crying over the superbowl doesn't count)
