They’ve been married for all of four months but it seems the unconventional union that is Gabi Grecko 26, and Geoffrey Edelsten 72, has finally hit the skids.
Gabi told The Gutter Trash that she will never return to Australia after accusing her husband of being ‘in love with his secretary,’ adding: ‘We tried to work it out but we couldn’t, it’s sad, it’s over.
She added: ‘We will be filing for a divorce now. We let each other go tonight in New York, we couldn’t, we just couldn’t stay together…’
The Maxim model went on: ‘He chose her over me… He said he would rather keep her than be married to me. I just had to say enough is enough he will never understand or care if I’m hurt.’
Speaking from New York in hushed tones, Geoffrey denounced the claim he is fixated with his secretary as ‘utter fabrication,’ saying, ‘she’s just an angry young woman upset over an earlier fight we had.’
Revealing he is catching an earlier flight back to Melbourne – without Gabi – on Thursday, he added: ‘I’m coming back earlier now instead of Monday and Gabi wants to stay in New York.
‘She hates Australia and Australians and says she’s never coming back.
‘There is no truth about my secretary. She has been with me for twelve years and is an excellent PA and Gabi wanted me to fire her because they don’t see eye-to-eye – I’m not going to do that.
‘Gabi and I have been fighting about a number of things and trying to work out the future.
‘She says divorce now but let’s see what happens tomorrow.’
The colourful couple married in a rushed ceremony in a Chinese Register office on the outskirts of Melbourne in June cementing their two-year romance.
She wore a low-cut, thigh-high, full-length Diane von Furstenberg number and he, too, wore white.
But fast forward four months and The Celebrity Apprentice stars split for the fourth time since they tied the knot.
On this occasion the subject of contention is his autobiography Enigma which details the moment he lost his virginity and a sordid threesome.
Three weeks ago, viewers of Celebrity Apprentice, from which the pair have been fired in separate episodes, saw the girls’ team sell 20 copies of Geoffrey’s out of print book which they bought on eBay.
The task left Miami-born socialite Gabi sobbing and stamping her taloned heels.
‘I hate this book,’ she screamed, throwing her wedding band on the ground in tears and the pair promptly parted days after the episode aired.
Gabi jetted off to NYC declaring ‘bye bye Geoffrey’ claiming she was going to visit her cat and could not come to terms with her husband’s previous life spelled out in the paperback.
Broken-hearted Geoffrey flew to New York on Friday in a bid to patch up his marriage but it seems Gabi remains resolute that they are well and truly over.
From the interwebs…
The TPP agreement is just another shot in the century long campaign by the US elites and multinationals to form the world in their image.
As others have already said, the principal pre-occupation of those groups since before the end of the Second World War has been to prevent the emergence of any other power that might challenge the ability of the US to run the world in the interests of that group.
That goal is reflected in thousands of US planning documents since that time. It has also been reflected in the military and subversive interventions into the internal affairs of over two thirds of the countries that compose the UN by the US government.
As US economic power declines, it is seeking, through the use of such “trade” agreements, to extend the life of that control for as long as possible.
If you’re not convinced that this isn’t the case, take a look and see if you can find the emerging economy of India, or China mentioned anywhere in the TTIP, TISA or TPP
That these agreements are only superficially about “free trade” is easily demonstrable. Much of what is treated in international comparisons as “trade” is no such thing as any normal person would conceive it to be.
Nearly a half of what is treated as trade consists of dealings between different arms of the same multinational corporations.
This is where say Apple US sells vast quantities of its computers and iphones to Apple Australia.
The prices, terms of contract, delivery and distribution are all determined internally within the same corporation.
Only with the exercise of considerable imagination can this be termed as “trade,” which is normally conceived to be dealings between distinct individuals or corporations at arms length.
Additionally much of these so-called “free trade” deals are in actuality about the enforcing of probably the most effective blockage of free trade ever devised-Intellectual property.
These deals play a vital role in preventing the spread around the world of new technical knowledge and confining its control to the organisation or person that originally conceived it.
As the US has for the last seventy years, been the source of a substantial proportion of the scientific and technological breakthroughs of that period, largely due to expenditures by the US government, they wish to endlessly extend the period during which they have exclusive control of the knowledge encapsulated.
The vast bulk of that knowledge was, after development, handed over by the US government to the corporations that have controlled it for the last seventy years, and they have taken control of that knowledge through the patent laws they essentially drafted.
This agreement seeks to extend further the length of time for which these corporations can control and exploit that knowledge for their own enrichment.
The reason these agreements are now negotiated in such strict secrecy is that the corporations concerned have learned from past experience that the more light is shed on them early in the process of negotiations, the more likely it is that the public will be roused to anger at the theft involved in them and the less likely they are to be passed into law.
The biggest warning sign for the public in any functioning democracy is that something is being hidden from them. They instinctively know that if it is so hidden, it must be to their disadvantage.
How bad is it….?
Really, really bad…. Watch this now..
The Visit is the latest movie from M. Night Shyamalan, the director who gained fame and notoriety for his ground-breaking movie The Sixth Sense, but since then has released nothing but a cavalcade of lacklustre soporific moronic trash.
For this outing, Shyamalan adopts the found footage handheld camera genre and follows the tale of a young teenage brother and sister Tyler and Becca, who venture off to visit their estranged grandparents while their mother goes off on some shagging expedition on a P&O cruise.
So far so good. The kids meet up with “the grandparents” who display some odd behavioural characteristics in otherwise seemingly normal domestic situations, including one moment where “Nana” invites Becca to “get in the oven.”
It’s all very Hansel and Gretel-ish, and it’s fairly obvious to see where it’s all heading and what the so-called “twist in the plot” turns out to be.
The kids soon discover that Nana and “Pop” are in fact deranged lunatics from the local asylum who have escaped and killed their real grandparents.*
They don’t seem too cut up about this, and despite being mere teenagers, manage to kill the psycho’s then their mother turns up with the police to take them home and they all live happily ever after.
According to some reviews, The Visit is a welcome return to form. I don’t think so.
One and a half stars.
*Spoiler alert. This bit contains a major plot reveal.
Well it’s that time of year! When big brutal boofheads go head to head with their opponents, and in the case of some supporters in Perth, that includes punching a woman who happened to be trying to watch a game of football with her kids. Or booing champion person, indigenous advocate and footballer Adam Goodes in his last game.
This week hordes of “those people” descend on sophisticated Melbourne as the West Coast Eagles do battle with gentlemen from Melbourne’s leafy, affluent Hawthorn.
Home to law partners, up market real estate agents and quite nicely preserved bottle blond wives who get around in 4 wheel drive Mercedes.
Amazing as it seems, Hawthorn is also home to the world’s greatest density of “private school bully factories” (elite secondary schools). Despite all this hardship they have produced the most successful AFL team in the modern era.
It’s the representatives of this demographic against the drunk, tattooed, fly in/fly out miners and bogans in this year’s AFL Grand Final.
AFL fans recall with affection the good old days when Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon, Richmond, St Kilda, North Melbourne and Hawthorn were loathed by all sensible football supporters.
How times have changes and we’ve had to find a new level of detestation to accommodate the teams from Western Australia.
It clearly isn’t just the players and coaches either. It’s the fans that make the teams totally insufferable.
On the football field Hawthorn looks stronger with a range of brilliant big and small forwards to kick a winning score. Cyril Rioli to kick 5 and the Hawks to win by that margin.
…and tonight watch the Brownlow Medal for tacky taste tacked on.
Former Australian Army officer and senior LNP government minister Mal Brough remains under investigation by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) for his role in bringing down former Parliamentary Speaker Peter Slipper.
“The AFP can confirm that it received a referral regarding the alleged unauthorised disclosure of Mr Slipper’s diaries on September 8, 2014 and is investigating this matter. This investigation remains ongoing,” a spokesman for the Australian Federal Police said.
Last year, Labor MP Graham Perrett complained to the AFP that Mr Brough allegedly illegally obtained a copy of Mr Slipper’s diary at a time when he was preparing an ultimately successful Liberal preselection bid for Mr Slipper’s Queensland seat of Fisher.
In an interview with Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes program last year, Mr Brough admitted to illegally obtaining copies of the former speaker’s diary in 2012.
After the footage went to air, the Australian government asked 60 Minutes to provide copies of the interview and any journalist notes relevant to the program.
The footage was requested to assist the government with the AFP investigation into Mr Brough and whether he breached the Crimes Act by disclosing information by commonwealth officers.
Mr Brough is being investigated under Section 70 of the Crimes Act, which is responsible for the disclosure of information by Commonwealth officers.
If found guilty he could face a maximum jail term of two years.
Mr Brough says he asked government staffer James Ashby and another employee to obtain the diary copies because he believed Mr Slipper was corrupt.
“I believed Peter Slipper had committed a crime, I believed he was defrauding the commonwealth,” Mr Brough told 60 Minutes host Tara Brown.
At the time Mr Ashby was suing Mr Slipper and the Commonwealth, claiming the former Speaker had sexually harassed him, making unwelcome advances and sending him sexually explicit texts. Mr Ashby later dropped the allegations.
However on 29 July 2012, Justice Steve Rares found that Mr Brough had acted with Mr Ashby and another Slipper staffer Karen Doane in abusing the judicial process for the “purpose of causing significant public, reputational and political damage to Mr Slipper.”
Mr Brough was recently appointed as the Special Minister of State by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in the recent cabinet reshuffle.
The position is designed to ensure parliamentary integrity and calls into question Prime Minister Turnbull’s judgement given Mr Brough’s chequered past.
Mr Turnbull’s office failed to respond to requests for an interview with The Gutter Trash.
Australia’s fabulously stylish new Prime Minister Malcolm “talcum” Turnbull has unveiled his fabulous new front bench that apparently heralds a fabulous new era in Australian politics. It’s going to be FABULOUS…!!
Christopher Pyne, the Minister for Sturt who was more or less guaranteed to lose his seat in South Australia after the submarines debacle now emerges as the new Minister for Science, yes SCIENCE!’
The new ministry represents a massive transition from the decaying decrepit mob that inhabited Tony Abbott’s crypt of cronies with a dramatic influx of new faces.
Unveiling his new team, talcum mentioned “renewal” ad nauseum and the party’s apparent need to embrace the future.
For the first time in two years the minister looking after women’s issues will in fact be a woman, a prospect that had never occurred to his predecessor Tony Abbott.
In addition to taking on the role of Minister for Women, West Australian senator Michaelia Cash will also be the Minister for Employment.
Kelly O’Dwyer will be the Small Business Minister and Assistant Treasurer, and also will sit in cabinet. Senator Marise Payne will be the new defence minister.
This means a total of five women, including incumbent Health Minister Sussan Ley will have cabinet rank.
However, there were many casualties needed to make way for them.
For the first time in almost 20 years Tony Abbott will be vanquished from the front bench. Apparently the former Prime Minister was not interested in working for the newly elected PM.
Other dinosaurs dumped from talcum’s ministry include former Defence Minister Kevin Andrews, who had literally begged for a job, Employment Minister Eric Abetz, the Minister for the Home Shopping Channel Bruce Bilson, former Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane, and former Veterans’ Affairs Minister Michael Ronaldson.
Disgruntled conservative Liberal MP Cory Bernardi, with the support of Abbott loyalists Ray Hadley, Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt has indicated he may establish a new conservative political party under the auspices of the Conservative United National Tradition Supporters.
