Hollywood, where are you now I need you?

Watching this “Perfect Storm” come and go I had no idea it would leave behind a legacy I could never have planned for. My 13-year-old son watched the news, more enthralled than ever before, more contemplative that I have ever known him. He was troubled, quiet and concerned. But here’s the thing: my son has…

Is my Honey Boo Boo skit a bullying Boo Boo?

When I made my Honey Boo Boo video I knew SOME people would send me messages saying “You are bullying that person.” I hear what you are saying but have commented on this kind of issue before. I believe there is a clear distinction between comedy/social commentary/reviews/opinions and BULLYING. If we don’t create a guideline…

Make A Wish!

It is with mixed emotions as I watch the wedding dress I never got to wear being auctioned off for the upcoming Make A Wish charity auction this Saturday the 27th October. I have never actually talked about the failure of that relationship publicly except for one article published anonymously in Cosmopolitan magazine just after…

Grave Robbing or Bullying, what is worse?

I have sat on this for the last twenty-four hours mindful of how I approach this article given the anti bullying campaign, Bullying Bites TV, I have undertaken recently. First of all I offer my deepest condolences to Amanda Todd’s family, a young girl bullied for years until she could take it no longer and…

Cyber sneak

I’m a snoop. I hated my adopted mother for years for having gone through my drawers, having read my diary and even having listened in on my teenage angst ridden phone calls. I couldn’t stand it and jumped up and down claiming my right to privacy as a young “adult”. But I am NOT ashamed…

L.A on a dime

Rumor has it Naomi Watts spent 7 years surfing Nicole Kidman’s “couch” as she worked hard for her eventual big break in Hollywood. Of course, given “our Nic” was with Tom at the time, chances are the “couch” was an entire 2 storey guest house in Bel Air with goodness knows how many butlers and…

Weighty debate

Okay so everyone knows I was doing the Visalus thing a while back. I actually quite liked it but there were a number of reasons why I didn’t continue. To be frank, my weight is more a psychological issue and takes more than a quick fix to sort. Secondly my finances have been “iffy” and…

KaPOW!

Okay well I have sooooo much to say because I have been craaaazy busy building this incredible anti bullying channel. I have teamed up with newsreader Jonathan Novack and we are in the process of populating the world’s first online TV channel dedicated to anti bullying. We have been doing some amazing interviews which will…

I’m sorry but sorry is NOT enough….

There is so much more to my story but for now I will simply say this about the forced adoptions back in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s in Australia. I made this a few weeks ago but only now got the courage to share it. Be kind……..
