What is it with celebrities and oversharing? My husband was running late for our date at a local small bar last week so I amused myself with a trawl through Twitter and suddenly gaped … Liz Hurley had tweeted: “Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now.”
Well, not too raw and personal that she couldn’t allude recent media reports about trouble in paradise with fiance Shane Warne with her 433,092 followers. Then Shane added his two bob’s worth: “Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we’re sorting through (private) issues. But we’re not throwing the towel in yet.”
You know Shurley, it ain’t “private” when you tweet about it … just sayin’…
Shane flew to London on Friday in a desperate bid to save his relationship with Liz. Before he left, he got a friend to call the Herald Sun to insist the problems in their relationship had nothing to do with him still being besties with ex-wife Simone.

>> Harry Potter author J.K Rowling wrote about the stigma she felt when she became a single mum 20 years ago. The feature appears on the Gingerbread website, an organisation for single parents that she represents as president. She concluded: “I would say to any single parent currently feeling the weight of stereotype or stigmatization that I am prouder of my years as a single mother than of any other part of my life. Yes, I got off benefits and wrote the first four Harry Potter books as a single mother, but nothing makes me prouder than what Jessica told me recently about the first five years of her life: ‘I never knew we were poor. I just remember being happy.’” Read more here.
