Survivor contestant Garth Collins is taking part in a fundraising fun day for the South African Guide Dog’s Association, Lesley Stones reviews a laugh-a-minute play that is currently being staged at Montecasino, and iconic South African band Mango Groove are set to perform at the Johannesburg Botanic Gardens (and we have tickets to give away).

Review – Boeing Boeing
Boeing Boeing is a comedy written in 1960 by French author Marc Camoletti, set in the Parisian apartment of philanderer Bernard (Robert Fridjhon). Bernard is engaged to three women, all impossibly slim and gorgeous air hostesses, whose existences are kept secret from each other by their erratic working hours.

Lesley Stones caught this witty farce at Montecasino over the weekend. Read her review

Jen Tile: Straight out of Norwood

Don’t you just hate Demi Moore? The 47 year old mother of three told reporters that she doesn’t follow any strict beauty regimes to help keep her looking young and believes her childlike behaviour and willingness to smile and laugh help her stay youthful.

I smile a lot. I laugh as often as I can. How come I need Pollyfilla to cover up my wrinkles and Demie Moore has a 32 year old toy-boy husband? It’s not fair!

Having said that I am quite prepared to grow old gracefully. Well, sort of. I don’t ever see myself playing bowls and enjoying the 7de Laan omnibus on Sunday afternoons but I also doubt I will be one of those naïve old-timers who thinks they are fooling everyone by having a bit of a nip-tuck.

It’s amazing how many stars have more plastic in their faces than Paris Hilton has in her credit card collection. Why do they do it? Surely they must know that anyone with half a brain and an internet connection could find out their real age and pictures of them prior to surgery within a few minutes?

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, I would rather be wrinkled than resemble a melted Fisher-Price toy when I reach a pensionable age.
