3. Kim Kardashian’s body will be ‘better than ever’ says her trainer Tracy Anderson.

Because: no pressure or anything.

Tracy Anderson – trainer to Madonna and Gywneth Paltrow- has told Us Weekly that Kardashian, who gave birth to daughter North West on June 15, is taking some time to be a mum before hitting the gym hard to regain her figure.

Even though losing the baby weight isn’t Kardashian’s number one priority at the moment – that would be ah, sleep – Anderson says she’s has plan to start with four-day-a-week workouts and then gradually increase to five or six days.

“It’s a tough time, and a lot of women feel like it’s a huge mountain to climb to get back, but Kim, surprisingly, has had the totally opposite reaction to other moms,” Anderson tells Us. “She’s like, ‘We’re going to be so good. It’s fun, I feel great!’ She just loves the whole process. From our talks during her pregnancy, I thought she was going to be really concerned [about her weight] once the baby was out, but she’s just not,” Anderson adds. “She’s in baby heaven. She’s excited to get started, but she’s really calm about it all.”

5. J.Lo (or her team) really should have googled dictator before singing him Happy Birthday. 

So Jennifer Lopez was recently in Turkmenistan to sing Happy Birthday to leader Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow for a cool $1.5 million. No biggie, right?

Oh except that the dictator has a shady reputation for his oppressive and egregious human rights violations.

Lopez’s team have issued a revised statement of the incident: “Jennifer Lopez and several other artists were invited and performed at a private corporate event for the China National Petroleum Corporation that was presented to their local executives in Turkmenistan.  This was not a government sponsored event or political in nature. The event was vetted by her representatives, had there been knowledge of human right issues of any kind,  Jennifer would not have attended. The China National Petroleum Corporation made a last minute ‘birthday greeting’ request prior to Jennifer taking the stage. This was not stipulated in her contract but she graciously obliged the China National Petroleum Corporation request.”

7. Kochie on Sunrise host Mel Doyle: we weren’t having an affair.

David ‘Kochie’ Koch has quashed the rumours surrounding Mel Doyle’s departure as co-host of brekkie show, Sunrise.

At both extremes, the pair were rumoured to be either having an affair or hated each other.

“There were two university studies on our body language and they were done with the sound down,” Koch tells AAP.

“One of them said we were having an affair and the other said we despised each other.

“We have never had a yelling argument with each other, in fact none of us (on the show) have.”

Koch says Doyle’s decision was made with her young family in mind.

“I am an empty nester, but Mel has been doing this for 13 years and has two kids and all of them have been born while she has been with the show.”

Doyle will be replaced by Weekend Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage, who Kochie says the Sunrise team, including Natalie Barr and Mark Beretta all approved her appointment.

9. Pierce Brosnan’s daughter dies.

Pierce Brosnan’s daughter, Charlotte, has died, aged 42.

The mother-of-two died from ovarian cancer on Friday. Her mother, Australian actress Cassandra died of ovarian cancer in 1991 aged 43. Tragically ovarian cancer also claimed the life of Cassandra’s mother as a teenager.

Pierce said in a statement last night: “On June 28 my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer. She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean.

“Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl.

“We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.”

Charlotte was adopted by Brosnan in 1986 after her biological father Dermot Harris died. She is survived by her husband, Alex and two children Isabella, 15, and Lucas, eight.
