Reality Tidbits

Cosima DeVito Being Sued For $500,000 - How Much Money Is This Girl Making?
Season 1 Australian Idol contestant Cosima De Vito is being sued by former managers for lost earnings. Which begs the question how much money can be made from a hit Chisel cover and singing at the Mardi Gras?

Don't managers usually earn about 20% of their clients income? Or are they just doing a US style litigation where you slip on a chip in MacDonald's, stub a toe and then sue for $50 million?

So there is apparently a deluxe life after Idol. Full article here at the Daily Tele.

Parents This Why You Put Your Daughter On Next Top Model Rather Then Supermodel.
So what do you get when good looking girls move in with hot most who have never lived out of home before? Yes you guessed it adolescent exploration of each other.

Apparently there are romances springing up everywhere. This could of course be a beat up by Channel 7 to get us to tune in tonight to watch the show.

For those who care the hook ups are Billy and Courtney, and Luke with Kassandra and Sheridan. At different times I should add.

Here is the story from the Syd Confidential with photo of Courtney celebrating her 18th birthday.

Make Me A Supermodel is on at 7.30pm tonight.

The Chopping Block Returns Without Katriona.
Matt Moran returns in this milder version of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares.

This surprisingly entertaining show that deserved higher ratings will be back on Channel 9. The premise of the show is two struggling restaurants go head to head to see who can show the most improvement in 48 hours after they have taken advice from Matt Moran.

There will be a few tweakings to the format, as the secret critic will have to be changed as he was revealed on the last series. A pity as he was great value.

Also Katriona Rowntree as the superfluous host has been dumped. This has the added benefit of not having to discuss with my partner whether a certain part of her anatomy is real. The only other reality TV star that elicits this discussion is Jodhi Meares. For the record our view is Katriona's fake, Jodhi's real.

Also the US are poaching the concept and rumour has it Marco Pierre White will be fronting it. Now this will be interesting as he is a former friend of Gordon Ramsey's. Apparently this friendship ended when Gordon turned up with TV cameras to Marco's wedding.

The show will commence on Tuesday 14 October at 7.30pm.

TV Tonight has more details.
