Come Dine With Me Australia – Anita Is Really Brynne Edelsten In Disguise

Anita is officially my new favourite reality TV person in 2011, but I actually think she is Brynne Edelsten in disguise.

She has blonde hair, is from Victoria, everything is Versace, her dress sense is slapper classy, but also  appears to be able to take the mickey out of herself. Love her.

I could not stop laughing when she said “having a shit on a toilet” was funnier than wannabe comedian Warren.

Clearly I have a different definition of comedy than Warren, as nothing he say is remotely funny. But then he seems to think so.

And won’t he be pissed that Anita has managed to monopolise the air time, and be funny at the same time.

It was Sheila’s turn to host tonight and put on one of  the best dinner parties in the three seasons. It had a level of sophistication, mixed with a lot of fun. And the food was even good.

To start was tomato pesto tarts, followed by Saffron-French Toast with Smoked Salmon and Caviar. For main she served seasoned lamb cutlets with glazed mint jelly , served with rosemary pan fried potatoes, and green beans tossed with Prosciutto, stilton cheese & walnuts. For dessert she made sicilian Orange Cake served with Grand Marnier ice cream.

But the food was the side show tonight. At one point on the episode I thought the dinner was going to turn into a swingers party, with Anita perving on the models and rubbing herself against the primitive art piece with a large appendage whilst wearing Sheila’s burlesque lingerie.

I actually think Vanessa would have been happy to participate as she hopped in the lingerie as well. All I can say thank christ there wasn’t a spa or the producers would have had a situation on their hands.

After all that shenanigans Sheila received a kick-arse score of 35, which will unlikely be beaten this week.

The “Dine” part of this week was concluded last night when the urbane Sheila won the highest score of this entire series to date, but if we’re honest, the food is far from being the main focus.

Allowing an undies’ seller who uses parties as her modus operandi in a competition like this is a bit like chucking a shark into the guppy tank: who ends up on top is a foregone from the get-go.

No, the interest here is watching Vanessa trying to get into Anita’s skin (in every way), and the impossible ego of some Kiwi unfunnyman attempting to avoid being totally eclipsed by the Anita Show. He has no hope: her schtik is a supernova while his performance is but a candle in the wind, waiting to be completely snuffed. Forgettable has no chance against regrettable.

Sheila may win the cash this week, but love her or loathe her, Anita’s already won our attention.

Oozeboss – well said particularly about Vanessa trying to get into her skin. I cannot wait to see Anita’s Versace home tonight. Oh yes it is Lachlan who?

Hopefully tonight will see cameos from Warwick Capper and Simone Warne with her new beau in tow…Oh, and a hot tub.
Swing on this, swingers.

Warren needs to stop with the gags, they are killing people – not from laughter but from cringing. He’s as funny as a dose of the clap. I lost it when Anita described “having a shit on the toilet” as being funnier than him.
Go Anita you good thing!!

Thought Sheila did an amazing job – loved the menu and the lingerie. Sorry to say did not think much of Anita – found the apparent lack of neurotransmitters firing frustrating.
