Michelle Bridges dealt a double blow
Things went from bad to worse for celebrity trainer Michelle Bridges last week after news broke she’d been charged with drink driving on Australia Day, with her five-year-old son in the back seat.
The following day she issued a statement revealing she has been going through a “very difficult time” following her split from her partner of seven years, Steve “Commando” Willis, with whom she shares her son, Axel.
Since the public admission, paparazzi have been sitting in wait monitoring the comings and goings of the former couple, who until recently were living together in Bridges’ $2.9 million Potts Point apartment.
The pair are understood to have had issues since July last year with photographers noting an increase in public salty exchanges when capturing images of the pair.
Bridges and Willis got together in 2013 after meeting while working together on The Biggest Loser. Before officially confirming their relationship, they were both in other relationships, Bridges with her former business partner and gym owner, Bill Moore, and Willis with a woman known only as ‘Froso’, who is the mother of two of his children Ella and Jack. Willis also has an older daughter Brianna from a previous relationship with a woman named Natalie Montgomery.
Speaking to Emerald City last week Bill Moore confirmed he has not been in touch with his ex-wife since her headline-making split.
“I haven’t spoken to Michelle since her breakup (with commando), no,”
“We haven’t worked together since 2015 so we don’t communicate on a daily basis anymore and whilst there’s no bad blood between either of us, I wish her well,” he added.
Bridges was pulled over in a 4WD in Sydney’s eastern suburbs around 11.25am last Sunday and taken to Waverley Police Station where she allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.086, which if proven would make it a mid-range offence. She is due to appear in Waverley Local Court on February 18.
Kellie Hush’s makes Bazaar swipe about copycat mag cover
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but when the latest Marie Claire Australia hit newsstands not everyone was applauding the publication’s cover featuring model Elyse Knowles cradling a koala.
Former magazine editor Kellie Hush was quick to upload to social media a 2015 Harper’s BAZAAR cover she produced in 2015 that had model Shanina Shaik holding a koala. The timely post set tongues wagging in magland.
“Everyone’s done a koala cover at some point, it’s hardly groundbreaking,” a fellow magazine editor explained. “She [Hush] needs to pipe down #noonecares.”
Marie Claire Australia editor Nicky Briger dismissed the copycat claims, instead focussing on the national bushfire crisis.
“When millions of animals died in the recent bushfire tragedy, koalas became the global ‘face’ of the devastating impact of climate change. An opportunity arose to photograph a joey koala from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, who are doing amazing work to ensure their future, so we jumped at it,” she told Emerald City.
“We hope baby Tink, our favourite cover girl to date, sends a message of hope. And we’re grateful to those who feel inspired to buy the mag as proceeds will go directly to charities and organisations who are working tirelessly to protect our wildlife.”
Happy ending for bushfire victim
She was thrust into the national spotlight when she refused to shake the PM’s hand during the recent bushfire crisis. But since losing her home on New Year’s Eve, heavily pregnant Zoey Salucci-McDermott now has something to celebrate after eloping with partner Mike.
“22.01.20 we eloped in the most Zoey and Mike fashion … some good after the storm [sic] some good after all the storm,” she captioned her wedding day photo, uploaded to Instagram.
The young couple are parents to daughter Uma and are expecting another child in a matter of months. The fire-ravaged town of Cobargo was one of the worst-affected areas on New Year’s Eve, losing several buildings on its main street.
A local father and son were killed trying to defend their home, and dozens of homes were burnt down.
The mum of one, 20, made headlines for refusing a handshake from Scott Morrison, instead saying: “I’m only shaking your hand if you give more funding to our RFS. So many people here have lost their homes.”
As she spoke, Mr Morrison yanked her hand, briefly patted her on the shoulder, then moved on to speak to someone else.
