She was great on Saturday Disney. Vale Jeniene.


Very sad news… I grew up with her as a 90s kid.


What do you mean by that?

It’s becoming increasingly more common that middle aged celebrities are jumping the fence so to speak.

But why is that a “trend” or an issue?

I guess the old fashioned thinking people would wonder how you could all of a sudden discover so late in life that you are attracted to the same sex and that it’s a “fad”.

Why do older people get divorced and married soon after? Things change I guess and it can be that one person who changes things for you?

Not an issue. I was being a bit flippant about a number of personalities who have left their husbands recently and have entered same sex relationships such as Kyle Richards and Chrishell Stause but there have also been many, many more actresses and celebrities in the past.

The real “issue” that you should be concerned about is that another celebrity has been forced to come out this way. Nat did the interview because another media outlet was threatening to out her, before she was ready to talk about it or had discussed it with her own family.


Disgusting. Then they’ll do a report about teen suicide … one of the biggest reasons for teen suicide is young people struggling with their identity and sexuality.
Nat needs to fire back and name that outlet. They should be publicly shamed!


Perhaps they realise their true orientation and then when the relationship ends, they appear to
I know a gentleman in his 80s who came out in his mid 70s after his wife passed away. He’d realised his true orientation during his marriage but remained faithful to his wife and the lifetime commitment they’d made, including nursing her through ill health.

It’s nothing new. It’s just that people are more willing to talk about it these days.

One of my former bosses was married and after his daughter left high school, he came out. He told me about the peer pressure of growing up in the suburbs back in the 70s. All his mates were married in their early 20s and he felt he needed to do the same to fit in with the group.

But once they were all married, their friendship group wasn’t the most important thing in their lives any more. He finally felt comfortable with his sexuality later in life.

On Tuesday, Ossher told Daily Mail Australia she had known Bassingthwaighte for years, and also knew husband Cameron, who was the drummer in Rogue Traders.

‘We have a lovely friendship,’ the mum-of-one said.

‘We’ve known each other for years. I’m leaving it at that. I think you should leave her be - her private life is hers.’
