AFTER 13 years at the helm of A Current Affair and nearly 40 years with Channel 9, Tracy Grimshaw is on the verge of walking out for good â and itâs all because she lost the Gold Logie.
âItâs made her question everything â including whether she sticks with the show,â an insider told New Idea.
Tbh I questioned life when Grant Denyer won too.
But for a woman who is a Walkley Award winner and has secured countless exclusives, itâs hard to wrap your head around the fact she has reportedly had to take leave to come to terms with the shock of losing a LOGIE.
âTracy has always had a wonderful rapport with the public but this time they turned their backs on her in favour of someone who hosts a now-defunct game show. You can see why sheâs reeling.â
Anybody else feel horrible for not voting for Tracy? Me neither.
But it looks like sheâs taking the necessary steps to deal with such trauma and will hopefully be back on the silver screen soon.
Over to one of her colleagues, Karl Stefanovic, who is reportedly on the verge of his 59th breakdown.
New Idea reports the father-of-three is seriously considering the âdrastic measureâ of âquitting Australiaâ in the wake of multiple scandals that have engulfed him over the past two years.
Karl fans need not freak out just yet, the king of Aussie TV hasnât confirmed he is moving to the US.
But a source told the mag he wants to be closer to James Packer and Russell Crowe which is understandable. Living near your three young children earning $2 million a year < chills with Packer and Rusty.
Speaking of Rusty, he has finally realised Terri Irwin is the one for him after her emotional TV interview last week.
âAfter seeing her so upset on TV, he wants to be more to her â he wants them to spend even more time together and for him to be her rock. Watching Terri break down was the moment that everything changed for Russell,â a source told New Idea. âRussell loves Terri, but he just has to follow her cues and be the best friend and support he can be.â
I love that in order for this source to extract such delicate info from Russell they would have had to be in a seriously deep place. The kind of place weâre only in after three bottles of red sitting at this dining table at 4am.
Weâve all got âsliding doorsâ moments â and Meghan Markle has a doozy.
The now Duchess of Sussex, happily married to Prince Harry, could have been Tom Cruiseâs wife back in the day.
The new royalâs estranged father, Thomas Markle, revealed in an interview with The Sun that he once caught his then teenage daughter hanging around outside a Scientology building in LA, but because she was banned from ever going near the church again she missed out on almost certainly becoming Cruiseâs missus, according to NW sources.
âMeghan definitely would have been in the mix if she had been a single Scientologist back then. If Tom has read Mr Markleâs interview, heâs probably wondering what could have been,â a source told the mag.
After months of bad press about Thomas Markle it appears heâs really been an unsung hero all along.
