Fluff: Michael Hutchence's sister is not happy about the INXS telemovie.

There’s only one person in Australia seriously unimpressed by the telemovie INXS: Never Tear Us Apart.

And it’s Michael Hutchence’s estranged half sister, Tina Hutchence.

She’s lashed out at Channel Seven for the way they portrayed her late rock-god brother Michael, and, ah, her main objection seems to be that Michael took a lotta drugs.

In a radio interview with Meshel Laurie, Tina accused the show’s writers of “trashing” her family and making their traumatic past a “soap opera”.  Tina says she got in touch with INXS manager Chris Murphy, who was executive producer on the project with guitarist Tim Farris, to voice her concerns.

“I wrote to Chris and said, ‘You know, what’s going on?’

“I’m really heart-broken, if this turns into something bad … I don’t know how you could do this to him. And he wrote back and assured me, ‘No Tina, just watch Michael’s star rise again and you know everything is going to be just great’.

“They were going to go soap opera on us, they could’ve shared some of the petty jealousies they displayed in real life. Now that would’ve been real (sic) good television, you know? But so far what I’ve seen is, you know, them trashing Michael’s families … but, you know, people that are no longer here to protect their name, they’ve done some injustices too … I’m very disappointed.”

This is what Paris Hilton has to wear to get our attention these days

Remember Paris Hilton? The original famous-for-no-discernible-reason starlet from the 2000s?

Well, it might blow your mind to know she’s just turned 33.

Or, you might have absolutely no fucks to give because it’s Paris Hilton and she doesn’t look a day older than the last time you saw her step out in public in a tiara.

Either way, we present: Paris Hilton’s Birthday Attempt To Recapture Our Attention.

Yes, that is a picture of Paris Hilton’s face on top of Paris Hilton’s birthday cake.

It’s like a metaphor for her career.

The trailer for Angelina Jolie’s movie where she tries to make Australia look like America is here.

Angelina Jolie is a millionaire movie-star raising six kids under the age of 12. But she just had so much spare time on her hands, she decided to make a film. That’s why she’s been hanging out in Australia – to make what actually looks like a pretty special movie.

Unbroken is based on the true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian and WWII vet who survived a plane crash and 47 days on a raft only to be “rescued” by the enemy and taken to a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp.

Here it is. Can anyone else hear the words “Academy Award for Ange” creepily over and over under the soundtrack?

One of The Block’s twins tries to patch up crumbling marriage

Lysandra and Ben Stevens

The Block’s solid winning duo, twins Alisa and Lysandra Fraser, look like they could combat any obstacle with their sheer determination. But sources have stated that Lysandra’s marriage is crumbling under the pressure.

New Idea reported that behind the glaze of winning The Block, the 29 year old ex-police officer and her husband Ben Stevens are falling apart.

The mother of two hinted at how The Block’s ruthless lifestyle had affected their marriage when filming The Block: Sky High last year.

“[Ben] does full-time shift work, with two kids under three — so he’s got no downtime,” Lysandra admitted in 2013. “He is really struggling.”

We wish Lysandra and Ben all the best in this tough time.

Victoria Beckham runs four miles a day and never shaves her legs

Mrs Beckham, AKA Posh Spice, is easily one of the most glam women on the planet. She’s mastered the bitchy resting face of an off-duty supermodel so flawlessly, you can literally really tell if you’re looking at the real Victoria… or her Madam Tussaud wax figurine.

The 39-year-old Fashion Designer Formerly Known As A Spice Girl just got uncharacteristically candid for an interview with Allure magazine. She opened up about all the important topics: hair removal techniques, exercisey secrets, and the breasts she bought in 1999.

Here are the big take-aways: VB gets up at 6 every morn to run 6.453 km (or “4 miles” if you’re speaking the Queen’s English). Her best friend Eva Longoria convinced her to get laser hair removal on her legs, so she hasn’t used a razor in years.

And when a brave journalist asked her about her 34D breast implants, she admitted that she ‘may have purchased them’ but doesn’t ‘have them anymore’.

Comparing her career to her rack, VB added that as a performer she was ‘never a natural’ but that she ‘got there in the end because I did believe that if you work hard enough, then you can achieve a lot.’

And she finally said something quite sweet about the Spice Girls: ‘I think what gave me confidence in myself was meeting the other [Spice Girls]. We always said we were all like rejects in our own way. We had to work hard, and they helped me accept me for who I was.’

Babe, we accept you for who you are now.

Here she is, for Allure mag:
