Off to host the biggest Halloween party Australia has ever seen... HalloQween at the Forum Theatre. Thrilled to be hosting alongside utter legend @karenfromfinance. We are zombie ushers who died in a fire at the theatre in the early 20’s and have been haunting the halls and aisles ever since. Karen is the duty manager and I’m the trainee. Spending eternity as a trainee, seems appropriate. @poofdoof
Lazy Sunday spent snoozing on my favorite mattress 💤💤
I really enjoy doing absolutely nothing this #NotTober. After eating garlic bread and watching Real Housewives, doing nothing is my favourite thing in the world. And not to brag... but I'm really good at it. So naturally I'm thrilled to finally be putting this skill to good use in support of The Banksia Project. This campaign is bloody awesome. All they are asking you to do is switch off and take a moment to yourself then upload a photo of yourself enjoying some time out with the hashtag #NotTober and for every hashtag they see the legends at @ahmhealthinsurance will donate 10 bucks to the Banksia Project supporting men’s mental health. It's so easy, you don't need to quit the booze (I mean, can you imagine?!), hashtag and then switch off and do sweet nothing. I love social media, but I've also learnt recently that switching off every now and then is great for my mental health. Honestly, try it. In fact, you should try switching off WHILE eating garlic bread... heaven! #sponsoredpost
I love entertaining so much and if I wasn’t such a highly strung monster I would totally be in events. Well either that or I’d be an assistant manager at Supré, let’s be honest. This was a dinner party I threw last Saturday for Jack’s gorgeous mum Glenda’s 60th. I personally spray painted each rose for the place card settings with gold spray paint if you were wondering quite how simultaneously gay and neurotic I actually am. We drank and ate more than I thought was humanly possible. And laughed even more. If you can’t tell which one I am - I’m on the left, engrossed in conversation with my mother, most likely talking about someone behind their back. And while we’re here, a big shout out to @jenny_creasey for helping me put it all together while I spent the day barking orders.
Oh my gosh I am such a huge fan of The Chase so was thrilled to be part of The Celebrity Chase and was even more thrilled to get a question correct! Can you tell? I even got my favorite Chaser! I was in quiz show heaven. You can swipe across to see the dream team you didn’t know you needed and after watching the episode you possibly still won’t. OR MAYBE YOU WILL!? Anywho without giving anything away, I have toured and worked with @eddoedmonds since we were babies and we found ourselves turning to each other at one point and saying “never in a million years did I picture us being in this position”. Oooh! It’s on at 730 on 7! And this dreamy purple suit is from @jacklondon_official and I wish I hadn’t given it back.
Melbourne lost an icon and institution in the early hours of this morning. The beautiful Bruce Mckenzie had been the bartender at DTs for 23 years - ever since they opened. He was one of the kindest, most generous, funniest men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I was always greeted with a giant smile, a Hello Darlin!, a wet pussy shot and a packet of salt and vinegar chips whenever I went in for a drink. He’d always tell me how excited he was whenever he’d see me pop up on TV. I could always count on a Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday or Happy New Year text from Bruce the moment I woke up. He was an integral part of the Melbourne gay community and raised hundreds of thousands for various charities over the years. Anyone that ever crossed paths with Bruce will know that he was just damn fucking special. So we are going to give back by putting on a gala benefit to assist his gorgeous partner Akira featuring a bunch of his friends and favourite performers. If you'd like to come and celebrate this brilliant man you can find the ticket link in my bio - I'll be performing alongside Rhonda Burchmore, Granny Bingo, Dolly Diamond and plenty of others... with an after party across the road at DTs (featuring plenty of wet pussy shots, of course). Thomas, Kyle and I went to see Bruce in hospital yesterday dressed as his favourite band, ABBA, to crack some jokes with Bruce who was still on fire, as always... and argue over which of us was Agnetha (I'm still sure it's me). Truly devastated to lose such a spectacular human far too soon but also grateful for the reminder of what a special community I'm so lucky to be a part of... and what fucking excellent friends I have.
So great catching up with my best friend in the whole entire world @nicolescherzinger! Also, I’m guest judging @gottalentau this Sunday. You’ll be shocked to know I felt quite at home judging others. It wasn’t much unlike my walk to get coffee in the morning, lunch, meetings, scrolling through Instagram, dinner, that time I read your diary, looking in the mirror... But actually there are some seriously impressive acts on this show. Genuinely blown away. Make sure you tune in Sunday at 7pm on 7. Sounds like a good idea #DontCha think? 😽
Spent the weekend throwing a housewarming, celebrating @jackstrattonsmith’s birthday on Saturday and then yesterday I turned 29. Y’know, just a quiet weekend. Here is a photo of me beaming ear to ear because I got to spend the weekend with the most fabulous, funny, generous friends. And I’d had 14 champagnes. Today I got to spend the day marveling at my beautiful new house, eating takeaway and watching trash in bed. Which reminds me... I haven’t eaten anything deep fried in an hour or so. Best be off! Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes and just remember that next year I am 30 which means I’m technically “gay dead”. You think I’m too extra now? Imagine me annoying the fuck out of you as a ghost. You’ve been warned. 😘
If you couldn't tell from my three thousand posts about it - Jack and I have spent the past week(s) moving house. We have argued on the hour, every hour, had more takeout than I thought humanly possible, accidentally smashed probably every piece of glassware we own... and loved every minute of it. While we wait for all our gorgeous furniture to arrive our mates at @koala decked out our place with mattresses in under 24 hours. It was actually magical. So we have literally spent the past week eating, sleeping, drinking, laughing, fighting (obviously) and doing all our house planning from our bed. They're such legends that they said if you want to WIN one of their matresses (like actually free) they'd give one away to one of my followers. All you have to do is head to their Instagram page @koala_giveaway, follow all the pages they're following, then tag a friend in my post and boom... you're in the running. Pretty simple. Anyway I have to go... Jack and I haven't had an argument yet today but I can feel one brewing over something REALLY IMPORTANT... like where the cutlery should go #sleepwithkoala #koalamattress
