Is anyone else watching Carols?  Is it my imagination or has Marina Prior gone overboard with the botox and lip fillers?

It must be difficult being in the public eye and having made a career as a pretty young ingenue.  I am sure that were I in her position I would find it hard to resist the lure of cosmetic surgery.  But she looks kind of weird!

Still she is donating her time for a great cause so who am I to comment.  Good on her and the others.

We just saw her on the Brisbane Lord Mayor's Carols and my husband refused to believe it was her when I said that was who it was. She looks like the waxwork version of herself, most definitely. Still sounds pretty good though.

My jaw dropped when I saw her! Looks awful.

We commented too. And then did fish kissy lips at each other.

We bag everyone out on the carols. But she just made it easy.

Tottie Goldsmith she is an "actress" who was married to David Rayne (I think thats the right brother lol) She's been in various TV shows over the years. She was the chick on the far left wearing tights and a sheer black top.

That was Lucy Durack, she was Glinda in Wicked.

We said the same thing about Marina Prior, barely recognized her! And Denis Walter messed up the words to "Do You Hear What I Hear". Sylvie Paladino was awesome though!

I only saw a bit of it, with the "icons" of Aus rock and I laughed when they couldn't all start the song at the same time! It was a very lacklustre opening line from them. Can they not count themselves in, in their heads??

I cannot stand Tottie. She always has her 'totties' out for all to see and for gods sake she is late 40s and wearing lycra as outerwear.  wacko.gif

I normally love Brian Mannix and Scott Carne but found that whole segment horrible.

I don't watch the carols but the other people in this house were watching. I missed Marina (thank goodness, can't stand her)

Tottie Goldsmiths biggest claim to fame is that she's Olivia Newton-Johns niece. She got by on that for many years.

Yes to the Marina lips. I think the poor love wants to be the angel on the Christmas tree til she's 110.

Rachael Leahcar is a pretty girl, lovely singer but my goodness, she needs to learn to speak.

There, I'm done with the b**chy, I'm actually really enjoying it. Love the glitz, the glamour and the commercialism of it all. It wouldn't be Christmas in Vic without a good slice of cheesy from Carols.

is she Olivia's niece? i never knew that.
I did know about the marriage to David Reyne though.

Wasn't it Anglie La Bozzetta not Tottie Goldsmith?  Tottie left after their first record and I'm sure that wasn't her.  Still a bad outfit though.

Ally Fowler looked a bit rough too I thought.  Missed Marina so have to google her!

That was definitely Tottie tonight. I happen to have a mutual friend with her and she had tagged my friend in her backstage photos on facebook.

Fair enough.

ETA was Karl being a bit cheeky mentioning chemistry between Lisa McCune and Teddy Tahu Rhods?

Poor Marina. She looks tragic. Why is it that women who went through their youth with thin lips suddenly think growing guppy ones in middle age is an attractive venture? Shades of Nicole Kidman there.

#25 Another one

I love this Angels We Have Heard on High, reminds me of my Nana humming away when I was a kid.  She loved this one but never knew the words so she'd sing a bit then hum!
