Well tears have turned to glee in Chez and Brenton’s house as they have sold their The Block apartment for $90,000 above their reserve. It sold for $970,000 and their reserve was $880,000. They must be happy with that.
So the wedding is back on I expect. Read about that tale of woe here.
Hopefully for them there is no evil clause is the contract which means if you don’t sell at auction your forfeit your prize. As they certainly deserve it considering Chez was one of the more memorable characters of the show.

I still think Kyle would, but Lara will just keep him dangling whilst he is buying the drinks, but rumours of them being on is not going to be stopped by this photo, Lara just tweeted.
Or maybe he is just giving her advice on her rumoured Dancing With Stars role, his ex did make the final.

Congratulations to Altiyan Childs, winner of The X Factor, for debuting his single “Somewhere In The Night” at number 8 on the Aria charts.
But he is still creating controversy in his many media interviews.
In an interview with TV WEEK he said he was shunned by some of the other contestants.
The article said:
You’ve claimed you were shunned by some of the other contestants from day one – does that make your victory even sweeter?
I have to be honest: yes. To deal with the politics from the others was hard. I won’t name names, but I didn’t get any apologies, and I didn’t even get congratulated by some of the contestants when I won!
What was their issue?
I don’t know…. I think there was some sort of intimidation. I can definitely say there was poetic justice [with the result].
Who knows which of the other contestants didn’t like him. A big Altiyan fan on twitter thinks Kharizma, India-Rose, and Mitchell Smith did not look too thrilled at the finale.

The the SMH The Guide section is correct Chez and Brenton’s apartment from The Block is still not sold, and let us hope when it does they get some money from the sale.
Because if the TV WEEK is correct the engaged couple are in a bit of trouble financially.
The article said:
Having to ‘pass in” at the auction after being the only couple not to hit their reserve was especially devastating for Chez and Brenton, 27, given that they’re financially in the red.
“We’re about $25,000 in debt, so we’re in a bit of trouble,” Chez 28, tells TV WEEK. “I quit my job for the show, so we’re on struggle street.
“I understand this is real estate and that’s the way the cookie crumbles, but we thought that after doing all this hard work we might be able to have a bit of a break. But we’re Aussie battlers – we’ll continue on.”
Chez adds that they “might have to” put their March wedding on hold until they have more money but hopes that isn’t the case.
“Some things don’t go the way you want them to, but everything happens for a reason. We’ve had a great time, so it’s all good,” she reasons.
If Chez wants to get married she should go on Four weddings for a fee, or sell her wedding to one of the gossip mags like Erin and Jake did.
Erin and Jake are in this week’s Woman’s Day. In a previous interview they said they were having a small wedding and that is why the other teams from The Block were not invited. However in the article they said they had 130 guests. Is that small these days?
Anyway for The Block fans you will be pleased to know the producers are looking for another block in either Sydney or Melbourne for next year’s series.

Rumours are flying that Lara Bingle will be appearing on Dancing With The Stars next year. I am not surprised you knew it would not be long before she would again be sucked into the vortex of reality TV.
She has previously appeared on Dancing On Ice.
Anyway maybe she would prefer to be on It Takes Two (the channel 7 singing show) if this YouTube clip is anything to go by. Or maybe she is still excited by her time spent in the company of Jason Darulo.
Other rumours for Dancing With The Stars are Terri Irwin and Kate Ritchie.
However if they don’t sign up Brynne Edelsten or Charmaine Palavi I am not watching it.
