1. “I just hope that his kids are all right…” Why Peter Stefanovic feels so sorry for his brother, Karl.
The Stefanovics are no strangers to controversy, but recent headlines and constant media attention may finally be taking a toll on brothers Peter and Karl.
In a new interview with News.com.au, Peter admitted he’s worried about his 43-year-old brother.
“He’s a good man, I love him,” Peter, 36, said.
“If someone is hurting, you hurt with them.”
It’s been a rough couple of years for the older Stefanovic brother, who controversially left his wife, Cassandra Thorburn, with who he has three children, in September 2016, after 21 years of marriage.
He then began dating 34-year-old Jasmine Yarbrough, and the couple are now engaged.
Both brothers were also faced with a phone recording scandal, after their private phone conversation in the back of an Uber was made public.
But as hard as it’s been on his brother, Peter said Karl’s kids have also been caught up in the crossfire.
“I just hope that his kids are all right,” he said.
Peter also discussed the media attention that now follows him and his wife, journalist and television host Sylvia Jefferies.
“Sylvia doesn’t like going to the beach anymore,” he said, due to being stalked by paparazzi. “I don’t like going because she’s not there…
“I have great sympathy for what Karl is going through with all of that, because it can be unrelenting.”
2. The subject causing a great deal of tension in Kyle Sandilands’ and Imogen Anthony’s relationship.
Believe it or not, Donald Trump has been creating relationship problems for Kyle Sandilands and Imogen Anthony.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kyle, 47, is a huge Trump fan, and he says his support of the controversial US President is rubbing his 27-year-old girlfriend up the wrong way.
"Imogen said I’ve got to stop talking about Trump. She said, 'All my friends don’t like Trump.' And I said, 'So what? I like him,'" he said on his KIIS FM Kyle and Jackie O Show, as reported by the Daily Mail.
"I said, 'I don’t care what your friend that works at the zoo thinks!' Her friend feeds the giraffe at the zoo and I've got to take that into my world somehow."
The outspoken radio host regularly speaks out in support of Trump on his show.
Maybe it's time to make your relationship great again, Kyle.
3. The new Australian reality television show that has viewers fuming.
If last night's social media backlash is anything to go off, people are not loving Channel Nine's new reality show, Buying Blind.
To be fair, the premise behind the show sounds great - given the over-inflated property prices in Australia's major cities, Buying Blind sees prospective home buyers handing over their money to experts who help make it go further.
Last night was the first episode, and it saw a family with a budget of under $600,000 searching for a three-bedroom home in Melbourne's Dandenong Ranges.
The median house price in Melbourne right now is $900,000, but the experts were able to find the family a home for just $565,000.
Except there was a catch - the house required extensive renovations, with the show's presenter even calling it a "full demolition job".
Fans were understandably furious, and vented it out on Twitter.
So ummm where did the $150k for the Reno come from :man-shrugging::skin-tone-2:#buyingblind

“Hi we have a really tight budget we just want a house”
“Sure here’s a house within your budget...... and $100,000 of free renovations you could never afford making this whole premise completely unrealistic!” #BuyingBlind pic.twitter.com/P5QCHAiTN6

But Channel Nine stands by the series... and all of the money behind it.
"Along with each couple’s renovation budget and their own personal belongings, Buying Blind’s experts used their considerable industry contacts to deliver extra value to the buyers in order to make each house a home to be enjoyed for many years to come," the network said in a statement to News.com.au.
4. “I was over it long before we broke up." Tracey Jewel on her break up with Sean and the MAFS contestants who made it harder.
"I was over it long before we broke up," the 35-year-old said while promoting her new book, This Goddess Means Business.
"Actions speak louder than words – he told me the right things but his actions spoke otherwise," Tracey told Confidential.
It wasn't a smooth breakup for the MAFS couple – according to Tracey, other contestants made the ordeal a lot harder.
Tracey's ex, Sean Thomsen, reportedly formed an "anti-Tracey Jewel club" with fellow contestants Nasser Sultan and Ryan Gallagher.
"It's so sad to see these boys... hate on me publicly. I'm really disappointed," she said.
"Just because our relationship didn't work out, there's no reason for this kind of behaviour," Tracey added.
"I don't think we need to take sides. It's time to grow up. But if they're going to be like that, I can't be bothered, I'm going to take the high road."
5. Everything we know about the now deleted One Tree Hill reboot photos.
It’s been a tough day for One Tree Hill fans.
Lovers of the classic noughties teen drama were sent into a frenzy when individually Hilarie Burton (Peyton Sawyer), Danneel Ackles (Rachel Gatina), Robert Buckley (Clay Evans), and Antwon Tanner (Antwon “Skills” Taylor) all posted a sneaky behind-the-scenes shot of them working with production equipment.
Although key characters like Chad Michael Murray (Lucas Scott), Sophia Bush (Brooke Davis) and James Lafferty (Nathan Scott) were missing in action, that didn’t stop people from leaping to the conclusion that there was a One Tree Hill reunion in the works.
