Ajay Rochester Claims She Has No Money

The former host of The Biggest Loser Ajay Rochester week is not getting any better with an article in SMH’s Private Sydney which says her son’s school Montessori is chasing her for over $6000 in school fees. The article states the school debt collectors this week contacted wanting the money. She is claiming she has none and is living off the generosity of friends.

I presume they tried to collect the money after reading she had been paid $15,000 by New Idea. However she told them that if they pressed the matter it would send her bankrupt, and for some reason she thought this would bring negative publicity on the school.

A Private school chasing down someone in the public eye for back payment and debts sends the right kind of publicity. Surely other parents wouldn’t want the riff raff of Rochester at their kids’ school?

Curtis Stone has always been protrayed as Mr. Nice Guy. Will be interesting to see how he goes on CA and if any other dimensions of his personality are allowed to come out? But is CS really that well known in the US…? Or is that a silly questions given CA has been dipping pretty deep into the US celebrity D-Z list of celebs in the last few seasons? Actually given former casts of CA and how kinda sleazy it is (in a reality television kinda way), the more I think about it I’m surprised CS agreed to do the show. Any idea when it will be shown in Aus?

Kyvyny – So true.

CG – Well Curtis has been on Oprah I think so that is the equivalent of making in the US, something that Ajay is desperate to achieve. I am not sure when they will be screen it here, normally on Arena. I am sure they will be promoting it big time with Curtis on it.
