By ALICIA VRAJLAL Get the scoop on this week’s best Aussie gossip – from new shows to hot frocks and dating shocks. I can also be found gossiping at ‘I Am Starstruck’.
MKR: Bye babes
My Kitchen Rules gatecrashers Ashlee Pham and Sophia Pou were finally eliminated from the Channel 7 reality show on Tuesday night.
The Sydney pair, known for their controversial and outspoken behaviour and frequent use of the word “babe” were booted off after serving overcooked sauteed kidneys and undercooked steam buns.
Both Ashlee and Sophia have sparked backlash from audiences as well as competing teams during the series.
Following elimination, Sophia told news.com.au, “They’re a small bunch of people that sit behind computer screens because, quite frankly, they don’t have anything better to do.”
Mel B banned from Channel 9
Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has been officially banned from appearing on Channel 9’sAustralia’s Got Talent, after Channel 7 won its case to prevent the star from appearing on any other network.
Earlier this year, Channel 7 had won an injunction against Brown, who previously appeared as a judge on the network’s show The X Factor.
The case was finally settled yesterday after the Supreme Court’s Justice David Hammerschlagordered that Brown be restrained from entering into an agreement with åny other network in 2013.
He said “I see no reason why she should not be ordered to keep her word that she should not work for anyone but Seven in Australia in 2013”.
We wonder who will replace Mel B on the Australia’s Got Talent judging panel consisting of Kyle Sandilands, Timomatic and Dawn French.
Charlotte Dawson’s new toy boy?
Australia’s Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson seems to be back on the dating scene, having been spotted with a new and much younger squeeze at last week’s Sydney Fashion Week.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Charlotte was spotted snuggling up to 23 year old property agentTyrone Corban.
She has also tweeted photos of her toy boy.
The TV personality’s previous relationship with Ryan Brustolin ended almost seven months ago.

Aussie model and TV presenter Erin McNaught is set to marry UK music sensation Example (Elliot Gleave) after the engagement was announced last November.
Whilst a wedding date has not been confirmed, the designer of Erin’s exquisite bridal gown has been revealed.
Erin took to Twitter yesterday saying, “My wedding dress is honestly the most beautiful creatioon I’ve ever laid my eyes on. @stevenkhalil is nothing short of a genius. Thank you x”.

2DAY FM radio host Fifi Box has tweeted the first shots of her newborn girl Beatrix Belle Box (Trixie) via her Twitter page, just days after giving birth.
Fifi took to Twitter on Sunday night saying “Its not that you’re boring @juleslund but maybe work a big harder to entertain my daughter next time you visit” along with a shot of the bub yawning in their presence – cute!
The new mother also spoke to New Idea magazine who exclusively published the shots. She said, “The first few days with Trixie have been the calmest and most serene of my life”.

An abundance of Aussie celebs flocked to Royal Randwick racecourse last weekend for the Australian Derby Day.
