Heartache In Reality TV Land – Kate Cook and Rachael Finch, And No The Are Not Together
Australian Idol’s Kate Cook is having an achey breaky heart moment, with news she has broken up with her long term girlfriend.
The Daily Telegraph reveals that Kate broke up with her 37 year old girlfriend who has four kids.
“I’ve been trying to just focus on Idol, but I find it hard to hide the way I feel,” she said.
“I really love Kerry, I always will, but I just had to make that tough decision to have a break.”I’m hurting over it, and confused too. I don’t want to hurt Kerry or the kids, but I have to follow my heart.
Does this mean Kate has found a new love? I would not be surprised that she has a few groupies as in a dull Australian Idol year she is one of the more interesting contestants. But then maybe she just wants to focus on her burgeoning music career.
As she says:
“This (Idol) is all new for me, and I’m enjoying focusing on myself and my career. The show’s giving me the support I need to help me through.”
Cook had attempted to keep the breakout out of the public spotlight, but was aware it had affected her recent performances and that viewers were asking questions.
“Being a private person, I would prefer to not go into it really, but yeah, it has been tough,” she said.
“Everybody is pretty cut up about it, which is why I have tried to keep the media away from it and not draw any more attention to an already painful experience.”
Racheal Finch, who we will see on Celebrity MasterChef in the next few weeks has also broken up with her boyfriend of two years. Apparently she busted up with him by text. Ouch. The article also says she has been seen painting the town red with Celebrity MasterChef colleague Eamon Sullivan. Is this the second MasterChef romance this year? (Source Daily Telegraph)
