Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Wills’ fun dad Summer!The adorable footage of Prince William “chest shimmying” to Shake It Off at Taylor Swift’s Wembley Stadium concert in London almost broke the internet last week! The heir to the throne was in full “fun dad” mode as he celebrated his 42nd birthday and made Prince George, 10, and nine-year-old Princess Charlotte’s dreams come true by taking them to the music gig. The lucky youngsters even snuck backstage to meet the American performer, the glee on their faces evident for all to see as they posed for a celebratory selfie. SUMMER OF FUN Insiders say it’s all part of Prince William’s plan to give his and the Princess of Wales’ children a “summer to remember”. “Wills is in full memory-making mode and is pulling out all the stops to make…2 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Amanda Comes Clean On Feud!Amanda Keller claims she and Taskmaster Australia star Tom Gleeson, 50, have “made our peace” after the pair faced-off against one another in the running for the Gold Logie in 2019, which Tom eventually took home. “It became Tom versus me, and it didn’t feel fun,” says the 62-year-old radio host. “I don’t feel ripped off in any way that I didn’t win, but I feel ripped off that I couldn’t enjoy the experience because every interview I did they said, “Oh, Tom is coming for you,” and I thought, I’m going to be the butt of a joke that I’m not part of here… I wish I’d been able to enjoy the experience more.” In 2018, when the then-Living Room host had also been nominated, Tom oversaw the campaign…1 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Brange Twins Take SidesVivienne and Knox are just days away from their sweet 16th birthday, but the twins’ plans to celebrate could be tainted by their parents’ ongoing divorce war. While Viv has sided with Angelina Jolie and dropped dad Brad Pitt’s surname, her brother Knox still has a friendly relationship with their famous father. And insiders predict their differing opinions could lead to tension and awkwardness at Brad’s planned birthday lunch for the pair. “Knox will be doing his best to keep things peaceful between Viv and Brad,” a source says of the divided family. “He just wants everyone to get along. He doesn’t ‘hate’ anyone, but he agrees with Viv that their dad’s behaviour was unacceptable.” Although their four siblings have publicly sided with Ange, the source says of Knox, “He…1 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Pierce’s Missing Son Found!Pierce Brosnan is facing fresh heartache over the adopted son he became estranged from nearly two decades ago, after Christopher was seen on a rare outing in London. “Pierce was sad to see Christopher,” a source says of the filmmaker, with Pierce admitting in 2005 that he had to cut his son off due to his drug addictions. “It wasn’t an easy thing to do but Pierce felt he had no choice all those years ago.” Pierce adopted Chris and his late sister, Charlotte, in 1986, and their mother, Pierce’s first wife Cassandra Harris, died in 1991. “It was devastating that Christopher was unable to get through that before he succumbed to addiction,” the source says. “Pierce wants desperately for Christopher to be well, and prays one day they’ll have…1 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024A Life In PicturesDONALD SUTHERLAND 1935 – 2024 A life well lived,” is how Donald Sutherland’s actor son Kiefer, 57, described his famous father’s legacy when announcing the star’s death on June 20 after a long illness. Over an acting career – which spanned more than 50 years and over 200 TV programs and films – Donald cemented himself as one of the greats, taking home Golden Globes, an Emmy and an honorary Oscar in 2017. “Donald Sutherland’s work is movie magic at its best,” his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence declared when she presented him with the award.

But you pull yourself together. I relaxed and the next two hours flew by. “I had a ball. That was 50 years ago when the fuse was lit for a showbiz career,” smiles Simon, 65, in our exclusive interview at his mountaintop Gold Coast estate with…3 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Democracy Manifest Man Is Back!More than three decades after his dramatic arrest outside Brisbane’s China Sea Restaurant, the man who became Australia’s most famous meme is out of hiding. Jack Karlson became a viral sensation when a clip of his 1991 arrest and his over-the-top reaction caught the public’s imagination. SUCCULENT MEAL “Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest!” he declared while being wrestled into a police car, adding, “Why did you do this to me? For what reason? What is the charge? Eating a meal? A succulent Chinese meal?” Police thought Mr Democracy Manifest, as Jack has since become known, was paying for lunches with stolen credit cards, a charge he maintained last week was a “case of mistaken identity.” “I was released, I wasn’t the person they thought I was,” he told ABC News…4 min

Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Throw the perfect ’80s Dinner PartyThe ’80s were a decade of high glamour (and even higher hair), so if you want to throw the ultimate statement party, it might be time to look to the era that gave us Madonna, Whitney Houston and Kylie Minogue. While ’80s fashion makes a comeback every few years, this era has a lot more to offer than that – including some pretty amazing co*cktails and deliciously kitsch party food. If you’re planning on dressing up, the ’80s are also fairly easy to replicate, and many foods that we ate back then are still available today. So, grab your best mega-hold hairspray, spritz on some Lou Lou by Cacharel and take a step back to the decade of Dynasty! FOR STARTERS This entertaining era took appetisers to new levels, with…2 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Refresher CourseSAVE YOUR SCALP Did you know that maintaining a healthy scalp could be the key to a luscious head of hair? “Your scalp is where your hair follicles are housed and [these follicles] contain the DNA for your hair,” explains trichologist, Chelcey Salinger. “Looking after this area (and reducing inflammation and damage to it) will therefore help hair growth.” Chelcey suggests washing your hair frequently and using quality haircare, “that is the correct pH (around 5.5) and contains antioxidants” to help maintain a healthy scalp. SPF ALWAYS! An essential step in any skincare routine to help protect and prevent premature ageing, SPF should be applied every day (yes, even when it’s cloudy outside!). “SPF is an important step for maintaining healthy skin,” advises Jordan Allomes, skincare education lead at Mecca.…2 min

Despite Anne’s husband Sir Timothy Laurence’s assurances that she is “recovering well”, Anne, 73, has been forced to postpone her engagements for the week ahead. “This is exactly what Zara’s been worried about happening for years now, but her mum hasn’t had a chance to slow down with everyone else falling apart.

Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Bidding War Over Sam!TV insiders reveal that while it was a nobrainer for Seven to re-sign lovable funnyman Sam Pang as the host of this year’s Logies, there’s growing tension behind the scenes between Seven and Ten. While Sam’s hosting gig helps Ten boost its flagship series Have You Been Paying Attention?, the 50-year-old’s schedule is filling up with obligations for rival Seven, which will likely see him have to pull out of filming for the quiz show on occasion. Adding to the tension, an insider says, Seven is keen to make him a full-time part of its TV family and may work toward poaching him, like it did with Dr Chris Brown.…1 min

And she’s a bit worried about how he’s going to distract from Suri’s studies.” The insider adds that protective Katie is banking on their romance being just a harmless…1 min

And with the long-running soap coming under fire from fans and being majorly snubbed from the Logies for the first time in decades, Kate’s return could be the perfect way to save the Bay! The actress-turned-radio-star, 45, had a mini reunion with some of her former castmates at Ray Meagher’s 80th birthday party recently, and Kate’s nosy radio co-host Wippa later grilled her on the catch-up – and her plans to make a comeback to the show that made her famous. “I know you’re going back to the Bay,” Wippa told a coy Kate on air. “I’ve…1 min
Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024Is It All Over For Kevin?Kevin Costner has pumped $57 million of his own money into his epic two-part western film Horizon: An American Saga, a passion project that could leave him hurting financially if it flops at the box office. Now, his plan to return for the final season of hit show Yellowstone has been quashed, as a TV insider claims, “no one really wanted him back” after he initially left in 2023 over scheduling conflicts with Horizon. “After that, Yellowstone bosses have a loyalty issue with him,” the source reveals of Kevin, 69. “Going back was not on his agenda and he only did so for financial reasons, so to have them turn him down [now] would have been a monumental blow.”…1 min

Andy, the laid-back foodie and chef, reveals, “I’ve been known to enjoy a takeaway tub of ice cream on the couch post-work while watching footy.” Favourite place to go out to eat? His top-rated eatery isn’t a Michelin-starred restaurant but a cosy Italian place called Capitano in Carlton, Melbourne. “[It’s] my go-to comfort restaurant to have a great meal. The pizzas and the general vibe of the place just keeps me coming back,” says the 36-year-old. Tell us about the worst meal you ever made...

Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024The Day Jackie Walked Out On JfkJanet couldn’t stand to hear Jackie blame herself. None of this was her fault, but it was obvious why Jackie was so distraught : Her in-laws Rose and Joe Kennedy were already making snide remarks about Jackie’s smoking having caused her recent stillbirth. If her marriage to JFK ended, the Kennedys, too, would blame Jackie. The press would blame Jackie. Society on the whole laid the success or failure of any family – but especially one with this much lustre – on the woman; it was Jackie’s performance as a wife (dutiful, domestic, sexual) and a mother (if she could even successfully give her husband children) that would determine the success of their marriage. Not Jack. Janet told Jackie to get a divorce while she was still young and beautiful…4 min

Woman's Day|Issue 26, 2024‘I Was Shocked This Year!’TV favourite Mark Wilson is a little bit bleary-eyed, and barely out of bed, when Woman’s Day gives him a call to chat about the brand new season of Dancing With The Stars. But there’s a cute reason for his slow start. “I’ve got a beautiful little grandson and he had his very first sleepover with Granny [Mark’s wife Annemarie] and Grandad last night. Bennett is only 13 months and he’s the lightest sleeper you’ve ever met,” says the Brisbane-based star, who is also grandad to two-year-old Elliot. “I’d pat him on the back and sing him a song and then he’d go back to sleep – so we did our grandparent job.” Of course, the 61-yearold’s other, more high-profile job is judging the celebrity dancers on the reality competition…3 min

The 28-year-old star will take to the court again on July 9 for an invitational doubles match at Wimbledon. And while it might only be a one-off for now, insiders suggest once Ash gets a taste for being back out there again she’s sure to want to win more comps, and this could be just the teaser for the three-time grand slam winner to make one of the most extraordinary comebacks in tennis history.

The actor, 61, has been mostly estranged from Suri since she was a young girl, so it was no huge surprise that he missed her high school graduation. And, according to an insider, Suri has grown accustomed to attending such events with just mum Katie by her side. “Suri couldn’t care less that her dad was at a concert during her graduation,” the source says. “It was just another reminder that he’s ‘not available’.”…1 min
