'13 Reasons Why': season two

It's happening!

According to a report a writers room for the 'sophomore run' of the controversial drama started up weeks ago.

Yup, it's true. Netflix is on the cusp of renewing '13 Reasons Why'.

Says The Hollywood Reporter':

The streamer is near a deal for a second season of the controversial drama about teen suicide, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Sources tell THR that a writers room for the sophomore run has been up and running for a few weeks. Netflix declined comment.

The controversial television drama - that triggered a warning from one of Australia's peak mental health organisations - is on the cusp of securing a second season.

Josie's Juice is a proud Netflix 'stream team' blogger and has welcomed this news!

Roxy Jacenko ‘In Conversation’ Seminar 2017: TICKETS + INFO

Roxy Jacenko is a PR powerhouse - there's no denying that.

She has become an ubiquitous presence when it comes to brand and talent management (with her companies, Sweaty Betty and The Ministry Of Talent, respectively) and has become an endearing character as she's laid bare her life, with all its triumphs and tribulations.

In doing so, Roxy has developed a vast and deeply loyal fan base, but has often conceded opinions on her can be divisive, and the way she is perceived can fall into two categories: fiercely loved, and, well... not.

Thing is, Roxy seems to have little time to cultivate any negativity - she has way too much going on to entertain the opinion of 'haters'.

Indeed, those who want to emulate her success, are curious about who she is, and why she is so successful can get an insider's view during her hugely successful ‘In Conversation’ seminars.

And now, it's back for 2017!

The previous seminars Roxy has run, in 2016, and 2015, were completely sold out events.

The focus?

To learn the tips and tricks and trade secrets in building your brand, and integrating that with social media and PR.

The third highly acclaimed ‘In Conversation’ seminar is on Friday 28 April, 2017 at The Westin, Sydney.

Roxy - who is founder and director of Sweaty Betty, one of Australia’s leading PR agencies -  will share her insights on using PR and social media to build both personal and business brands.

Since founding Sweaty Betty at the age of 24 (Josie's Juice, before it was Josie's Juice and just Josie Gagliano, editor of several magazines and fellow publicist, has known Roxy since her pre-Sweaty Betty days, and watched the rise of 'Roxy' the brand), Roxy has grown her business into a multi-million dollar business empire representing some of the world's leading brands in Australia, for the past 13 years.

Seeing an unfilled niche as she's adept at doing, Roxy then founded The Ministry of Talent in 2012, Australia’s first management agency solely dedicated to digital influencers.

Becoming a mamma to adorable kids Pixie and Hunter, she then established ‘Pixie's Bows’ when she was "unable to find hair bows" for her then toddler Pixie. This simple idea - my daughter Estella loves hers - has now grown into a global brand, sought after by Aussie mums and Hollywood A-listers as a cute accessory to adorn their kids' hair with.

A contestant on the Channel 9 TV show 'The Celebrity Apprentice' Australian edition, making her mark there too, in fact cementing her status as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to making her presence felt and negotiating, Roxy is also the author of three successful novels: 'Strictly Confidential', 'The Rumour Mill' and 'The Spotlight'. These three tomes penned by Roxy take readers on a whirlwind journey through the life of Jazzy Lou, climbing her way up through Australia’s PR industry. Autobiographical? She'll never tell...

After one of her biggest years personally (do a Google search and you will see - there's no denying her relationship and her very serious health concerns have filled a gazillion column inches, although thankfully her wellbeing is on the mend) and professionally, Roxy has once again proven her mettle by continuing to grow her business and overcome each hurdle thrown her way.

During the two hour seminar, Roxy will discuss an array of PR and marketing topics covering everything from digital media, to how to make your way in business, be it as a start-up or an established operation.

Joining Roxy on stage to ask hard hitting questions will be Australian media personality and television presenter Sally Obermeder, another Josie's Juice fave.

So, if you're wondering who Roxy is and how she got to where she has, ‘In Conversation with Roxy Jacenko’ is for you.

Book now... only a few days to go. It's happening this Friday and final and limited tickets are available.


Oh, wait... the best until last.

Roxy is famed for the generous gift bag and for this seminar, all attendees get to take one home:

The famous gift bag is packed with goodies from some of Australia’s favourite brands - and it's valued at over $500 - yep, 500 bucks!

Here's what media has to say about Roxy's 'In Conversation' seminar:

“The Roxy Jacenko Factor” Sydney Morning Herald – April 2016

Wheels & Dollbaby Velvet Keepsake 30th Anniversary Collection: PHOTOS

The most sexy of sexy Aussie fashion brands, with an enduring history has just released their latest collection, and it's positively KILLER!

Look at what we're dealing with here...

Wheels & Dollbaby is the quintessential, iconic brand worn by bona fide international rock stars, rock chicks, and general sexy as fuck ladies who know how to strut and be noticed, without trying hard AT ALL. But then, how can you miss someone in a Wheels & Dollbaby get up? Have you seen their clothes? Cleavage, legs, cinched waists and the pussiest of pussy bows and polka dots and shades of pink which are far from innocent.

In this AW17 season, the Wheels & Dollbaby 'heroine' is adorned in luxurious keepsakes: the kind of pieces that will last a lifetime, the classic look that never goes out of fashion, decedent fabrics, delicate crystal beading, timeless designs.

Josie's Juice is a big, longtime fan of the brand and is yet to see a piece that coulda been bought from the iconic Darlo store twenty years which can't be worn today. Non e' possibile!

Here is the new Wheels & Dollbaby Velvet Keepsake collection, to mark the huge 30th anniversary for the brand - it's available right now from the Crown Street, Darlinghurst store and online.

Featuring the sexy, somehow never out of style fabric of velvet, a plush, supple and invitingly luxurious blended fabric, which flows and falls in all the right places. It’s sensual, sexy, sassy and a dream to wear. All the pieces in Velvet Keepsake collection inherently retain the signature brand of glamour and femininity Wheels & Dollbaby is famous for the world over.

Internationally renowned designer and Wheels & Dollbaby founder, Melanie Greensmith (who totally looks like a genuine rock chick who lives her brand and its ethos) said:

"My fave pieces are the softness to die for green fur coat! The silk ruffle blouse a mix of Anita Pallenberg 60’s meets smart posh. I love my chinoiserie print so much I've repeated it but this time using rich emerald green and peacock blues for extra lushness. As Dior once said, 'Nothing is more flattering on a women's skin than Velvet', so with that in mind I set about using an array of beautiful velvets in midnight blue, red and of course black lined with my magical powermesh to enhance the best in all different silhouettes."

The 30th Anniversary collection is perfect for red carpet events, cocktail parties, or, you know, just looking glamorous from top to toe.

With a campaign shot by Sydney photographer Elvis Di Fazio at Melanie’s luxurious harbour front home in Sydney, it stars stunner Elle Brittain.

See the Wheels & Dollbaby AW17 collection below, and go online HERE to learn more about the brand and all the collections.

Texting Story App + 'Ladies night out' VIDEO

Have you seen the new app called Texting Story?

It's a super simple to use app which turns your texts into a video... which you can then share online, often for a bloody good laugh.

Like this one, going viral. WATCH + LAUGH!

Posted on the Open Minded Mothers Facebook page, at last count it had over 17 million views, over 69,000 likes, and over 365,000 shares, it's just TOO good! Those expletives!! That backtracking on what we REALLY wanna say to our partners... I kinda feel like relationships are one BIG, lonnnng conversation which goes from wanting to say 'shut the fuck up', and changes it to a far more friendly, "Okay, babe! Whatever you want babe! Love ya babe!"





'The Voice' Australia 2017: VIDEOS

'The Voice' Australia is back!

Are you a fan? Many say the blind auditions - when the coaches/mentors have their backed turned to hear the contestants sing and base their decision on seeing them through to the next round - are the best part.

Here is a sneak peek of their song on tonight's show, where Seal, Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland and Boy George sing 'Vertigo'

And, the coaches taking their seats:

Sophie Monk: 'The Bachelorette' 2017 Confirmed VIDEOS

So, yes... the BIG news in TV is that Sophie Monk is 'The Bachelorette'. For real.


The woman who publicly says that her love life is in the doldrums and has been unlucky in love has now been plucked by VERY clever Channel Ten network execs and named as this year's new 'Bachelorette'.

Josie's Juice thinks this is kinda PERFECT!

Here she is talking about the catalyst for her decision to be said reality TV star... her mum!


Soph may have and her fair share of her high profile boyfriends, including Hollywood actor Sam Worthington, musician Benji Madden, even and footballer Eric Grothe Junior, but the 37-year-old will now spend the coming months seeing if she can score her perfect BF as the star of Channel Ten’s hit show. Previous Aussie Bachelorette's have been: Georgia Love and Sam Frost.

Here is what Georgia Love - last year's The Bachelorette - says about life after the show, on the Logies red carpet:

Sophie is no stranger to taking the piss out of herself... and lining others up to do the same. See clip below, with her recent interview with Tom Gleeson on 'The Weekly' TV show:

One thing is for sure... she will make for INTERESTING TV. We say, bring it!

Sophie on KIIS with Kyle and Jackie O:

Here are some old clips of Sophie, then... click on THIS link (but not at work! NSFW!) which is one of Josie's Juice all time viewed posts... it's Playboy, she's hot, and Josie's Juice readers clearly LOVE a good ol' perve... CLICK ON THAT LINK HERE.

Here is how Sophie herself broke the news... she is wetting her pants, people. Love ;)

Sophie is no stranger to TV. She has been on all these shows, PLUS she got her start on one of the very first reality TV shows in Australia, 'Popstars', where she was teamed up with fellow singers to create Bardot:

As one of the judges on 'Australia's Got Talent':

And as one of the contestants on 'The Celebrity Apprentice' Australia:

THE Jessica Mauboy performance! A mash up of her hits... girl can DANCE!

The Amber Sherlock pisstake of 'jacketgate' (I really like Amber a lot... we've met at kiddies media events and I think she was crucified over that clip. Pete and Kat... you are so cheeky):
