Don’t look back in ANGER!

There are rumours abuzz that Rhianna is back with Chris Brown. Hmmmm. Not making her decision easy is some extreme pressure for her to not give this guy the time of day (ever again) because of the message it sends to others. Double hmmmmm. This is a subject I can speak of with a certain…

Don’t put a FAT-wah on me!

All who know me know I run straight here to speak my mind on any matter that riles me up. Many magazines then go on to quote this blog as if they have spoken directly to me on the matter. Yesterday afternoon I lodged a complaint with the Anti Discrimination Board of NSW re my unlawful and…

Brave Heart

Okay, so Excess Baggage moved to the GO Channel but we continued on healing our lives thanks to the generosity of Fremantle Media and Channel Nine. In a lot of circumstances like ours, production would have been stopped and people would have walked away with a simple shrug of the shoulders and an, “Oh well,…

A Dog’s Purpose?

This just in……. (via my email) Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of…

Long lost fiends

Yes you read it right. Today I’m talking about the strange phenomenon of working in the public eye coupled with the accessibility of internet social media like Twitter and Facebook, giving people from your long lost past the opportunity to “relive those wonderful memories” you spent countless years in therapy trying to forget. Let me explain…

Making “change” the norm.

  Spergy kids are not great fans of change. They like routine, love familiarity and flourish when things are done just the way they like them to be. When things stay the same it’s like knowing a hug from mom waits for you every day you walk in the door from school –rain, hail or…

Down but definitely NOT out!

Okay so it is a brand new day and one of the many great lessons I have learned from Dr Tim on Excess Baggage is to not go down for the count but to fight on, getting stronger every day, and with each day there is an opportunity to succeed in more ways than just…

THIS JUST IN…….

GOTTA LAUGH…….I JUST GOT THIS FROM A FRIEND (AND YOU FIND OUT WHO THEY ARE WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN) AND I JUST HAD TO SHARE IT:   Hi Babe Just wanted to send you a huge big hug and let you know that people out here love your show. Don’t let Channel 9 ruin…

Channel 9 Have some balls….(you’ve got NINE!)

Okay, I am currently stuck on the bottom end of Australia, Kangaroo Island, beautiful place but NO reception so we just found out that the ratings/channel say that we should move channels. Well, anyone who knows me, and who knows that I turned down $50,000 from Woman Day to say “I lied” about a certain…

How I “keep my cool” on the set of Excess Baggage

I really can’t explain how hot The Kimberly is. Your skin feels like it’s being ripped from the bones by the sun’s reach like some alien ray gun set to do more than stun. OUCH. The heat pulses from your head all the way to your toes and it doesn’t matter how much water you…
