In news just in, Ronnie Corbett, best known for BBC comedy sketch show 'The Two Ronnies', has died aged 85.


In a story on the BBC site, his publicist said: "Ronnie Corbett CBE, one of the nation's best-loved entertainers, passed away this morning, surrounded by his loving family.
"They have asked that their privacy is respected at this very sad time." 
Corbett was one of the UK's best-loved comedians - along with Ronnie Barker, their double act was one of the most successful of the 1970s and '80s.
The entertainer had been suffering from ill-health for some time and had been in hospital in 2014 with gall bladder problems.

'The Silent Inheritance', by Joy Dettman: REVIEW

Josie's Juice is lucky to have a guest blogger, Gabriella Dessanti, as our book reviewer. She will be reading and reviewing books for this site, as well as for sister site TwinnieWorld. In fact, you can read her review on that site right here. And read her first review for Josie's Juice here.

Here, Gabriella reviews 'The Silent Inheritance', by Joy Dettman.

Says Gabriella:


Joy Dettman’s latest novel, a crime thriller that will keep you guessing…
From the beginning we are introduced to the psyche of “The Freeway Killer” who dubs himself “the Wolf”. He knows and accepts his “wolf heart” and female babies should somewhere in their future fear him.
There are two strong and likeable 12 year old girls in this story, Marni, the mature and charming daughter of the struggling single mother Sara, and the 5th victim of the “Freeway Killer”, a strong and resourceful girl who challenges her abductor exposing his vulnerabilities.
The book is in third person, written from several points of view, the main ones being Sara, the Freeway killer, the victim, Ross the detective and Freddy Adam-Jones the lawyer. 
Sara, lives in a granny flat with her daughter Marni, assisting her landlady as part of her cheap rent. An unexpected windfall opens new doors of opportunities and also threatens to expose the secrets of her past that she has worked hard to keep hidden.  Marni’s classmate is the latest victim of the Freeway Killer and for Sara, who lives and breathes for Marni, her fears for her daughter’s safety are magnified and she clings more fiercely to their privacy.
Freddy Adam-Jones, a successful lawyer at the peak of his career, he is engaged in high profile cases, in contrast his personal life is in crisis with an increasingly absent wife, a delinquent son and guards a ruinous secret that weighs on his mind.

Ross pulls the threads of the story together, his investigations lead him to Freddy and on a trip to Perth he meets Sara and Marni. What is Sara’s connection to Freddy? What secrets from Sara’s past might help locating Marni’s classmate?  Can Ross unravel the clues in time to save her life before she is found dumped in double bagged green garbage bags on the side of the Freeway?

This is my first Joy Dettman book, and I didn’t know what to expect. It was well-written, the characters are vivid as she delves into their thoughts which oscillate from past to present, leaving the astute reader cryptic clues to try to solve the mystery.  It is an enjoyable read with a cast of memorable characters each with their secrets and their flaws.   On the negative side the characters are developed to the extent and for the purpose of furthering the abduction storyline, leaving sub-plots unfinished and somewhat unfulfilling. I also found it hard at times to empathize with Sara, some secrets didn’t need to be so secretive, however her daughter is delightful, Freddy is interesting and adds complexity to the story and the insights of the killer and his victim keep the storyline moving as it climaxes to a gripping end.

'The Silent Inheritance', by Joy Dettman is out now through Pan Macmillan.

Jennifer Lopez Carpool Karaoke: VIDEO

James Corden and Jennifer Lopez have done the carpool thing. And it has been touted as   "the best ever."

Also: James takes Jennifer's phone and sends a text to Leonardo DiCaprio. AND HE REPLIES...

Here is the video:



James texts to Leo:
"Hey baby, I'm kind of feeling like I need to cut loose. Any suggestions? Let me know. J.Lo, you know, from the block."
"I'm not going to let you send that!", she says, with a laugh. But before she could stop him, James sends the text. Of course.
And then...
"He wrote back!" JLo says. "No way. No, he did not!" Corden replies. 
"He said: 'You mean tonight, boo boo? Club-wise?'" JLo reads. "See, here's the funny part is that he actually thinks I'm serious!" 
"I love that he wants you to cut loose. This guy is the best," James replies.
Other vid highlights?
She talks about her personal life: she has gotten five wedding proposals.
"I've had some amazing proposals," the mother-of-two revealed. "I've been married a couple of times I'm still trying to get it right."
"I don't want to compare one to the other, they were all pretty spectacular, they were nice," she added. "And there were some that asked me to marry me that were good, but I said no."

I'll admit.

It's two of my woman crushes in ONE PHOTO.

Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski have simultaneously posted a nude selfie on Instagram, AND they both give the finger (well, Em gives TWO).



Here is Kim's caption:


Meanwhile, Emily posted the same photo soon after, with this caption:

    This strong girl love came about after Emily defended Kim's nude selfie with a nude selfie of her own, which Kim applauded by then sending Em her fave flowers: white roses. See? A STRONG love between these two.

'Missing Presumed' by Susie Steiner: REVIEW

Josie's Juice has a new guest blogger, folks! Her name is Gabriella Dessanti, and she will be reading the latest books, and writing book reviews. Here is one of hers. Plus another, on sister site TwinnieWorld.

Here is her take on the new book 'Missing Presumed', by Susie Steiner.

Says Gabriella:

Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw is a hungry and successful detective whose love life is uninspiring.  She describes herself as “a misanthrope, staring down the barrel of childlessness”.  To help her fall asleep she listens to the murmuring of her police radio. When over the airwaves come reports of a missing girl she wants it. When she sees a graduation picture of Edith, smiling, gorgeous, yes she thinks “this will be big”.
This is the story about Edith Hind, the missing beautiful young girl, the detectives that are keen to find her, her mother’s anguish through the process and the powerful effect of the media on Edith’s close family and friends. 
The police suggest that Edith’s complex love life is at the heart of the disappearance to drum up media interest. Sir Ian Hind, an eminent surgeon to the Royals is mortified by how his Cambridge post grad daughter has been depicted in the media.  Ian is friends with the home secretary and puts pressure on the police investigation. As time creeps by he becomes more frustrated with the confusion in the investigation, looking for connections in seemingly unrelated leads of a known criminal and the death of a boy found in the river.


We are introduced to Miriam Hind contemplating that “every marriage is a negotiation of proximity” and wonders whether Edith has embarked this journey with her partner Will as “when you are in your twenties the problem of dependence and independence can be quickly resolved by ditching your boyfriend” and she considered Edith on this brink. 
Has Edith made an elaborate attempt to ditch her stunning but boring boyfriend or has something more sinister happened…
The momentum of the book keeps going with the richness of the characters that permeate the novel giving depth to the crime investigation. Manon is likeable, she has integrity and committed to protecting the good. She has been through the heartbreak of losing her mother as a child, estranged from her sister and father, when she finally starts a relationship you want her to be happy, yet she becomes overly dependent and it comprises her police work.
Other main detectives include Davy, he is a loyal police partner an optimist who counterbalances Manon. Even when Manon is in a happy phase paradoxically he becomes pessimistic due to the pressures of the ongoing investigations and the strains in his once “perfect” love life. 
Miriam is a devoted mother and wife. She struggles as the investigation continues, the critical 72 hours pass and it is presumed that her beloved daughter is dead. She makes her own private investigations, working through Edith’s childhood friends and childhood sweetheart. We get a great insight into Edith through Miriam. 
This book has the required urgency and suspense of a crime thriller with layers of good characterization and an exploration into love and the family life.
'Missing Presumed', by Susie Steiner is out now through Harper Collins.

Editor's note: info on the author:

Bombd: Social Media Phenomenon - How To + VIDEO

The next big social media phenomenon has made its home on the Gold Coast, and is sweeping around the world.



It's called Bomb’d, and it has been touted as "the hottest new social media app that your parents won’t understand" by Techly, who has predicted that Bomb’d will be the next big thing and has legs to take on Snapchat and Instagram.

YES.

Okay, before I go on... here's a clip to give you the DL:




The Bombd team are moving this Aussie app to a global base, and are in the process of launching in (US) 'Spring Break', with more than 150,000 college aged students being targeted to jump on board the next big thing and the future of social media. The success so far at Spring Break has been enormous, with the massive demand and huge influx of users sending and triggering tens of thousands of bombs, causing the app to go into meltdown.

Based on the success of Bombd at Schoolies week in Australia, Bombd bested the initial growth rate of social media titan Snapchat, with Bombd gaining 10,500 active users in its first three weeks after launching, compared to Snapchats gain of 3,000 users during the same period. 74% of these users remain active and engaged daily users.

This is huge!

Bombd has been known for its controversial usage activity including sending and receiving “booty bombs”. This hot bed of scandal is expected to expand and multiply as Bombd launches at Spring Break. 

Locally, the Australian app, valued at $10m before launch (which is kinda insane), has seen people like Kurt Coleman, Gold Coast-ian and Australia’s selfie king mobbed in the middle of Surfers Paradise as a result of the app during the Schoolies launch, triggering a bomb to hundreds of his followers which resulted in an influx of fans knowing his location and following him through the streets like a social media pied piper. 

The interesting thing about Bombd is it says no to the faux-cial media movement, and is about real time, right now content. There are no filters, are no retakes – the feedback on the ground at Spring Break is that people are ready for this new wave of social media that isn’t fake and just a highlights reel. 

This is what Bombd looks like:



So, how does Bombd work?

Users simply send a “bomb” to their buddies with a one-hour expiry time to trigger. When the bomb recipient triggers this, patent pending technology auto-activates the camera and a 7-second countdown appears on the screen. At ‘1’ the camera captures a picture and blasts this back to the original sender. Bombs can be individual (peer to peer) or sent to multiple members (‘Squads’). The end result is a personal feed full of the content you want, from who you want and when you wanted it.

On-demand social media explodes into market

Some questions you may have...

Could this be the end of the faux-cial media phenomenon?

It’s a world first, and kids are loving it. Bomb’d is the latest social media app calling itself the ‘Uber’ of social media. It’s addictive, it’s fun and promises real life, no fakery. The app itself is a mix of on- demand platform Netflix, coupled with the addictiveness of Snapchat and the visuals of Instagram. Social media has now turned on-demand, in what could be the antidote to the ‘faux-cial media’ phenomenon.

Bomb’d touts itself as being “RN AF” (Right Now As F*@!) and is real life and right now. It is the first social media app globally to allow users to request content from their buddies, and lets people find out what their friends are doing right now in an honest, un-curated way. Its aimed at 14-25 year olds and responds to their frustrations of fake, photo-shopped and boring content from the people they follow.

The attraction is in the simplicity; users download Bomb’d from the App Store and send a “bomb” to their buddies. This sends a notification that gets triggered, and patent pending technology activates the recipients’ camera. A photo is then sent back to your buddy. The request for real life, on demand content has increased the apps usage with strong growth since launch.

Bomb’d has grown organically in the music industry, with early versions of the app adopted by a range of local and global artists who have silently been using it to connect with fans, see gigs and share real-life rock star moments.

“We wanted to make an app that is real with, no fake and filtered images, if you want to see what your squad or even celebrities are really doing, Bomb’d lets you do that in real time,” says the usually shy Bomb’d Team. “The technology and innovation behind the development of Bomb’d is an exciting upgrade for real social media as a whole. The incredible growth proves this new on-demand generation are ready for change.”

BOMB’D is available from the App Store. Visit www.bombdapp.com.

Do it, people.

Joe Giudice: Prison Sentence Begins

Joe Giudice began his federal prison sentence on Wednesday.

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star arrived at Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution in New Jersey, where he began his 41 month sentence, handed down after being convicted of bankruptcy fraud and failure to file income tax returns.

"Joe Giudice surrendered himself to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix today at 12 p.m. to begin serving his sentence," family attorney James Leonard Jr. tells E! News in a statement. "His brother, his sister and several other members of the Giudice family, as well as myself, were present when he turned himself in to the prison, including Teresa. It was obviously a very emotional day, but this is a very strong family with a tremendous support system and they will get through this, just as they did when Teresa was away."

Joe's wife Teres Giudice was released from her 14 month prison sentence in December.

The couple have four daughters: GiaGabriellaAudriana and Milania. "I feel bad for my daughters just having to go through this again," she previously told E! News.

"That's what breaks my heart."

Beppi Polese Dies, Aged 90

The news came post CIRA (Council of Italian Restaurants in Australia) meeting today... the man the CIRA members had intended to honour had passed away: Beppi Polese, an Italian icon in the Sydney restaurant industry. He died peacefully in his sleep.

Robert Dessanti, from The Wog With The Grog, shared the sad news post lunch, and on the restaurant's Facebook page, this tribute and photo:
R.I.P. Mr Beppi. Thinking of you and your family. — at Beppi's Restaurant.



I interviewed Beppi Polese in 2007, when his book - 'Beppi, A Life in Three Courses' - was released. It was for the weekly Sydney magazine City Weekly, where I was associate editor, and was utterly fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and interview all these incredible people. I have never forgotten my conversation with Beppi - I reminisced about it only last week, driving past the restaurant. What struck me the most? That I knew, in that moment, he would always be remembered as a pioneer in introducing Italian food to Australia, and to the Sydney restaurant scene, one that was starved (in every sense of the word) of Italian food. Indeed, we have lost a great.

Here is his book cover:



Here is a book blurb:

This illustrated memoir follows the story of iconic Sydney restauranteur Beppi Polese. Born in 1925 in a farming village in northern Italy, where food and eating were a matter of daily subsistence, Beppi began his training in silver service dining in Milan. His career was interrupted by World War II and his imprisonment in an Austrian labour camp, from which he escaped to join the partisans in the mountainous Friuli region. In 1952, after working in the great hotels of Florence and Venice, Beppi emigrated to show more

The man I found at his iconic Sydney restaurant - it is the first Italian restaurant established in Australia, back in 1956 - was a complete gentleman. So old school and respectful, with his venue a relic from a time gone by.

A wine wall to die for, walls of heritage where many a deal, proposal, and late night feed, and candlelit dinner took place, and decades of service to hungry diners.

Here is a vintage photo of Beppi:


Beppi's Italian Restaurant is a much awarded restaurant established by Beppi Polese and his wife Norma - it is still owned and run by the family.

Beppi immigrated from Italy in 1952; his son Marc still helps manage the business.

Famous diners have included singer Pink, who famously tweeted (on 13 November 2012): "Recently dined at Melisse in Santa Monica. Easily the best meal of my life. Aside from Beppi's in Sydney."

Here is the original tweet:



Other famous faces eating there have included: Rihanna (who tweeted about the minestrone when she visited), Jerry Lewis, even Frank Sinatra.

Says the website blurb:

The History of Beppis Italian Restaurant in Sydney

Beppi began his working life when he left home, a small town north of Pordenone in Friuli, at the age of fourteen to go to work in Milan as a dish washer for Albergo Doria in 1940. Slowly working his way up the restaurant hierarchy at the Papagallo restaurant, Albergo del Corso and the Pricipe di Piemonte in Milan and subsequently in numerous hotel dining rooms and restaurants including The Grand, The Gritti Palace and Europa hotels in Venice.
Following the war he gained work again in dining rooms in hotels such as the Baglioni roof garden restaurant in Florence, Regina, Albergo Ungheria and Excelsior Palace hotels in Lido, The Gritti Palace again in Venice and the Ambassador in Rome.
In 1952 Beppi came to Australia. He worked for  Romano's, Milano's and Prince's restaurants all in Sydney before opening  Beppi's Restaurant on 10th June 1956 with his wife Norma, two months prior to the first television broadcast in Australia.
Beppi is considered the patriarch of Italian restaurants in Sydney and Beppi’s Restaurant an institution. Over the years Beppi’s restaurant has been the spawning ground for over 12 Italian restaurateurs and restaurants in Sydney. Beppi’s restaurant is thus the longest running restaurant under the same ownership in Sydney and we believe in Melbourne and possibly the whole of Australia.
Beppi has been responsible for the coaxing of the Australian palate out of its Anglo-saxon shell and introducing it to the flavours of his native Italy. Many Sydney siders ate for the first time such modern mainstays of today’s restaurants as mussel, octopus and artichoke at Beppi’s (the mussels he harvested himself in a small rubber boat scraping them off the pylons of the old wooden spit bridge as he was unable to buy them). Four generations of Sydney siders have passed through the doors of Beppi’s to this day in the same location as the first day it opened.
Over the years the restaurant has accumulated over 40 awards for food and service including the inaugural in 1963 the Forchetta d’Oro from Alitalia, Sydney Morning Herald Lanson Award for Professional Excellence and Best cellar awards.
In 1993 Beppi was inducted into the Restaurant & catering association Hall of Fame.
In 1998 Beppi was awarded, by the Italian government, the title of Cavaliere del Lavoro for his services in disseminating and maintaining the Italian culture in Australia through his work in Beppi’s restaurant over the 46 years since opening.
The Cavaliere title is the equivalent of our Knighthood or Order of Australia.
For more on Beppi's - to book at the restaurant, and more photos and history - go here.

Check back in to this blog post - I plan to find the photo taken for the story I wrote, and the story itself.

Rest in peace, Signor Beppi Polese.

Effie The Virgin Bride: Dates and Details

If you're a fan of the irrepressible, funny, a-little-rude-but-gets-away-with-it Effie, you should start to break out the wedding confetti and make room in the bomboniere cabinet because Effie is getting married!

And guess what...? Youse are all invited.

Josie's Juice interviewed her last year and she was very, very funny. Read the whole interview here.



Effie’s - touted as the 'original Bachelorette', see video below - is "gonna gain a husband and lose a cherry, all in one night."



Effie – The Virgin Bride extravaganza awaits your RSVPs - and there promises to be heaps of music, dancing, multi-media and audience interaction like youse’ve never seen before.

Frontier Touring presents a very special evening with Australia’s favourite Greek virgin goddess (yes, apparently she can still wear white!) in what will be her biggest, most outlandish mega-tour production to date – visiting Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney in February/March 2016.

Here's what the critics say:

‘Crass, domineering, groin-obsessed and egotistical, Effie is also irresistibly lovable’ – The Age

‘Effie can still wow an audience … she will never be a wog out of work’ – ★★★★, Herald Sun

‘Coustas mines her much-loved character's catchphrases much to the crowd’s delight … bringing a freshness and modern relevance to her creation’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘How good am I? Please. And modest.’ – Effie

Adored by Aussie audiences, Effie is the creation of Mary Coustas, a Logie award-winning, AFI nominated writer and performer, who first came to our attention with Effie, a character written for the smash hit theatre production “Wogs Out Of Work”. 

In 1993 Effie earned Coustas a Logie for Most Popular Comedy Personality. She landed a Top 20 single with her duet alongside comedy legend Norman Gunston, and toured the country in the record-breaking theatre shows “Wogs Out Of Work” and “Wog A Rama”. Her one woman shows are equally as acclaimed: “Waiting For Effie”, “Effie X-Posed”, and “A Date With Effie”. On TV screens we’ve loved Effie for two decades now, in “Acropolis Now”, “Effie Just Quietly” and “Greeks on The Roof”. In 2015 Effie even got a record deal, releasing Effie’s Classic 90s Hits.

More on the mistress of woggettes:

Mary Coustas’ other achievements are many. She joined the cast of “Sylvia” for the Sydney Theatre Company – gaining high praise for portraying a dog on stage! – and appeared on TV screens in shows such as “Skirts”, “Wildside”, “Grass Roots” and “The Secret Life of Us” and recently “Rake 2”. Coustas received an AFI nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the drama Mull. Other film credits include Nirvana Street Murder (1988) and Hercules Returns (1993).

Most recently, Coustas’ book All I Know was published by Allen and Unwin in 2013. Sharing her story of a decade of IVF treatments, tragedy and motherhood at 49, Coustas touched the nation’s heart with her appearance on “60 Minutes”. Currently she is a regular on Channel 9’s “Today Show – The Grill”… and now Coustas is finally back in theatres, with her biggest stage show in decades!
