Kylie, for finance nerds, it's like

Anthony, what will the changes in

what about Friday Night what about Friday Night Football

private health insurance, what

Budget and most of it was. As

Anthony was saying, there is a

that tin Kerred arround the edges of

a whole lot of things, so as not to

upset the vast majority but picks up

those people on the fringes. Mark,

what are you reading into this as

far as the Treasurer's popularity

goes? How is this being received? I

think the Treasurer will be happy the

the question asked most often is

the question asked most often is why are you so soft? I don't think they

believe they have been soft.

believe they have been soft. There is a lot of tinkering of the edges.

They become ex upon eveningsly

larger as we go O the approach was

you don't want to hit people too

hard in the grips of recession but

as you are coming out of that

recession, when you are returning to growth, 4.

growth, 4.25%

growth, 4.25%, that is is edging on

a boom growth rate, you start to get

the bigger cuts going in. It's all

about managing the message, about

convincing people the conspiracy of

little cuts were necessary and this

is setting up the economy. It's also

about getting that message out

there. It took them a long time to

utter the first R word, recession

but they have to convince people the

new R word, recovery. How are we

looking at getting out of this storm

While business studies say

While business studies say why you can get debt, it doesn't make it

smart to take it. That is

smart to take it. That is exactly what has been risked. I'm a big

critic of the suggestion that we

will start to turn and get out of

this very fast because

will start to turn and get out of this very fast because because the

deficit we will keep going into will

require hard work and taking back

things that have been promised to

really, really put a bit of

really, really put a bit of heat under it. With the turn around in

the financial crisis, I'm very

concerned and somewhat cautionary as

to whether the turn around will be

fast. We have questions here. Alan

is in Victoria. Alan, what is your question?

is in Victoria. Alan, what is your question? Has retirement age been

lifted for poll tigtss and public

servants, too? Mark, can you

servants, too? Mark, can you answer this one, you are in Canberra? The

pension age which I guess is

effectively the retirement age is

going to be increased gradually from

65 to 67 over the next 10 or so

years. Yes, it sin creased for

politicians and for public servants

as well. Not a lot of those go on

the pension because they have fairly

generous superannuation schemes and

become self-funded retire ease when

they get out of their job. They have

looked after themselves pretty well.

We have got Christie on the phone

with a question on baby bonuses. Are

they going to continue offering the

baby bonus? Kochie? No, they are

going to continue offering the baby

bonus to non-working mums but again,

tinkering around the side because

they are not going to be indexing

your eligibility. Remember, it is

means tested now, the baby bonus.

That income level goes up with CPI.

Well, they are not going to increase

it by CPI. So if you look as though

you just come under the threshold

now and you are planning on a baby

in two years, a couple of pay rises

will put you above it and cut you

out. Part of the tinkering on the

edges. That's all we have time for.

Thank you for sticking around.

Kochie I'm so glad that is the

Budget under your arm. I thought you

Nicked the Bible from the hotel

room. It is the Bible. Sorry to

upset you. Kochie thank you, Mark

and Anthony, thank you. Ahead on the show - the celebrity red carpet moments from last night's Women Of Style awards. Plus, the most expensive video clips ever made. # We'll check out the artists who spent the big bucks and whether it paid off in chart success. But next, get ready to celebrate all things kitsch. It's Eurovision time! We'll check out this year's hopefuls, after the break.

Welcome back to The Morning Show. The hottest celebrities in the country flocked to the InStyle Women of Style Awards last night. And forget the recession - it seems glamour is back.

We'll get all the inside goss on the red-carpet frocks and, of course, the winners in just a few minutes. But first to the US where Miss California Carrie Prejean is keeping her crown after being handed a lifeline by pageant owner Donald Trump. Trump says she didn't violate her contract with the pageant

when semi-naked photos of her appeared on the internet.

So we have made a determination

So we have made a determination that

the pictures taken were acceptable,

they were fine, in many cases they

were actually lovely cases and in

some cases they were modelling

pictures. Carrie will remain Miss

California. They were fine pictures indeed. Prejean also caused a stir when she spoke out about same-sex marriages. Answering a question from pageant judge and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton Prejean said she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. For more on this we're joined by Mike Amor in our US bureau. Good morning. By now most people have seen the photo in question. But is anyone surprised Donald Trump has spared Carrie Prejean?

I have studied these photos

carefully. Thank you. And was

disgusted by them. No-one

Donald Trump would say "

disgusted by them. No-one predicted Donald Trump would say "You are fired" Donald Trump would say "You are

fired". He is particularly for

giving of pretty young blondes. The

2006 miss USA was forgiven after she

snuck out of her help hotel room to

take alcohol and drugs. He said

Carrie could keep her sash. Thot

photos, one was taken underage so

Larry and I can't legally look at

them. The others, though, we believe

were photo shops, so they are fakes.

Has Miss California had anything to

say on this? She spoke today and got

quite emotional about it. It evoked

images of the battle of the bulge, I

think she thought she was talking

about weight loss and the right to

speak her mind. Let's listen to what she had to say. Being at the center of a media firestorm is not something I had planned, or signed up for, but the days since have taught me to stand up for what you believe in.

She was quite outspoken previously

in her views about gay marriage.

What is the public saying about

What is the public saying about that in the US, Mike? It is like they say

over here, a hot button topic. Gay

marriage has its opponents and has

people in favour of it. But the

public in general is shifting

towards allowing

towards allowing gay marriage. Recent polls show that 42% of

Americans want gay marriage. But it

does have its high-profile

opponents. President Obama said

during the election campaign is

opposed to it. What happened to

Prejean, happened to be per

Prejean, happened to be Perez

Hilton. He has ran a good campaign

against her. Cynics would say Donald

Trump loves this publicity? He says

all the publicity surrounding this

shows these pageants are relevant

still in society. He is is lapping

it up. He owns the pageant so he is

enjoying the time in the limelight.

He does love those blondes. Thanks

for your time, Mike. We want to ask

you in the next couple of days how

octo-mum is doing and Lorena Bobbit.

I will keep on top of that. Moving on, Katie Price is said to be devastated at her husband Peter Andre's decision to divorce her after more than four years of marriage. The Aussie ex-pat and the model formerly known as Jordan lived their lives in front of the camera

meeting on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here'. But tensions between the couple were clear in a recent episode of their reality TV show.

She was quite annoyed with Peter

Andre. You have said it all. We

Andre. You have said it all. We will

wind it up. You will see me in the

studio and her ---- Your breath

stinks, go and wash it. The couple has two young children together.

Katie's now fled Britain claiming Peter dumped her. So for more on this developing story we're joined by gossip columnist Catherine Caines. Good morning to you. Does this split come as a surprise?

She is doing that celebrity trick.

She was seen out partying with

friends. So there

friends. So there was also a message

going on. It is a clash of egos, who

is making more money, who is more

famous. Perhaps four years of

everything possible, throwing

everything out there in the

spotlight with their relationship,

it has come bused under the

pressure. Any truth to cheating

rumours and who is meant to have

been cheating on whom? Everything

About them is so extreme, including

the rumours themselves. The

fantastic one that has broken in

Britain right now is that she is

having an affair with a gay dressage

expert, Spencer Wilton. They were

photographed in a nightclub the

other weekend. Horse and Hound, the

experts have come and defended

Spencer and said he is not the

reason why they have split. Andrejs

has suggested many a time, the third

person, has been her partying, her

high maintenance, her love of

alcohol. Perhaps there was a bit of

flirting but the truth hasn't come

out who that third party. Horse and

hound? Like an expert magazine for

the equestrian set. Not since the

movie 'Notting Hill' have I heard it

mentioned? They would have to give a

reality check to this relationship.

The fact they are defending someone

who is a dressage expert shows how

extreme things are getting. On could

a reality program be affecting the

reality of their marriage, do you

think? There is a whole conspiracy

theory. There is punters betting

there is a bit of a set-up to create

more scan dl and raids the ratings

for this show. However, they do have

two children. I don't know if they

put them under that much emotional

stress. This probably is actually

real. I don't think it's a stunt.

No-one knows where the truth and the

spotlight stops with this couple.

That's part of the problem. They

probably don't know themselves. I

wonder what Donald Trump would

think? He would think cash in on the

split We will read more in horse and

hound. Remember this guy? No, not that guy. This guy.

Shake, shake, shake. # Well, he's back. Our good friend Sakis Rouvas is returning to Eurovision to represent Greece five years after coming third for 'Shake, Shake, Shake'.

I think I did it better than him I did, too. Oh, yes, it is that time of the year again. So, to take us through some of the big contenders in Eurovision 2009 we're joined by pop culture expert and Eurovision tragic Des Mangan.

Good morning. So, what's different about the competition this year, Des?

It would be easier to explain the

laws of physics than the laws of

Eurovision. What happens this year,

there is two semifinals as well as

there is two semifinals as well as a Grand Final. In a grand final there

is five in there, Germany, Spain,

France and the UK because they pump

the most money in. The host country

Russia. Out of the two

Russia. Out of the two semifinals they will take 10 from each night

which will have your 25 for the

grand final. Each country is

represented by one act.

represented by one act. 43 countries

are vying. What hope does Sakis have

of taking out the title? I don't

think so. But the betting companies

in England have him at 11-2. They

think he has a good shot. What does

horse and hounds say? I thought that

was the title of their reality was the title of their reality was the title of their reality show.

I think we are going to look at...

Go to something. Push "

Go to something. Push "Play" Go to something. Push "Play".

is fantastic. Let's look at that.

. Give us - what are the other

contenders. They look pretty good.

Finland is one to look out for. They

are a good one. They have a dance

track called Wald's People called

Loss Control. It's a pure owe pop

number. The other one to look out

for is... Ukraine? The reason I

picked Ukraine is for Larry and I

because she is hot. I don't know

what she is singing. This is very

Alana from the Ukraine. Everyone is

worried about her. Her slip that she

made for the contest is causing a

bit of a stir because she does half

naked. They are worried about what

she is going to do on performance

night on stage. She better not be

night on stage. She better not be trying to be Miss California? As

long as she has Donald Trump as an

agent. We will get you back in when

they decide the winner. When is

that? Sunday night: Still to come - the seven signs you're sabotaging your love life. And the world's most expensive videos. But next, fresh from the red carpet, Australia's most stylish women. You're watching the Morning Show, live on the Seven Network.

But all give back to their communities and motivate others through their achievements. Proving that style is more than just the way you dress or look. The Women of Style Award categories ranged from business to lifestyle and charity to entertainment. With such a wide range of successful women, choosing winners would have been hard.

became an instant hit on YouTube.

It's hard name to say, isn't it? But just when you thought

you'd seen the last of this online rabble rouser, she's now released a new video. And this time, she's biting the hand that feeds her.

He has no grounds for a divorce

apartment in 30 days for no reason. I don't like a woman scorned" must have known someone like Tricia Walsh Smith. know.

He's got Viagra and condoms stuff

here and porn movies. Just ask him what he wants me to do with them.

The socialite shocked America in April 2008 with her rant against soon-to-be ex-husband Philip Smith, a Broadway theatre tycoon.

We never

We never had sex. He said it was

because he had high blood pressure. I accepted that. The 6-minute video found instant popularity as the former actress revealed intimate details of their failed marriage.

I'm going to be a warrior. I'm

trying to be a warrior. Maybe I'll win. But the video failed to win her friends where it counted and a court granted Philip Smith a divorce on the grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment. She may not have won her court battle, but Tricia did discover her own niche.

# I could have touched the moon

# Had I own a swimming pool

# I threw my best minds at him # I'm going bonkas. # I'm going bonkas. # She capitalised on her worldwide web fame releasing an online music video fittingly titled '(I'm Going) Bonkers'. It was followed by another thinly veiled attack on her ex-hubby called 'Arm Candy'.

# It was arm candy

# Can make you look good and dandy #

# You never thought about my life

# Because I was just a trophy wife. # Neither have been bestsellers.

# Put me on your video on YouTube tonight. #

But now, Tricia has a new target - YouTube.

That's right. She's released a new song pleading with YouTube to scrap their new user counter.

# Certainly the counter

# Certainly the counter stops at 202

# There's no budget at all

# What I should I do

# Then I learn YouTube has this new software

# To show it's unfair

# I'm fighting the spammers

# I'm fighting the spammers # And now I've gone to war

# Everybody's numbers are pathetic

and poor. # The clip was made for comedy site Funny or Die. And while Tricia insists it's all tongue-in-cheek, critics say it's yet another attempt for her to get back in the spotlight.

# There is a deep, deep fur owe

across my brow. # But regardless who has the last laugh, one thing's for sure - we're not likely to see the back of Tricia anytime soon.

You have to build this feeling of

a good example? The iPhone became

the thing everybody had to have. It

symbolized about you, that you were

an early adopter, you were out in front of everybody front of everybody else, you

understood what was going on and you

were, I think, hip. That's what the

whole iPod, iPhone kind of brand has

captured, the idea of being

unbelievable phenomenon Otherwise

known as the Harry Potter

phenomenon. If you think about the

way that built. The first book, who knew it

knew it was going to be that big.

Kids took to it. Parents loved it

because it got kids reading. It

built, and built. By the sixth book,

it was selling out in hours. The

minute they close the last book,

they are sitting around waiting for

the day until the next book is on

the shelve and they are in there,

grabbing it as fast as they can.

That is one of the clever That is one of the clever evident

they came back. Target, you can take

them back so there was low risk in

money and got this aspirational

At the funeral, Elton John revised

his already best-selling song

but there are plenty of people out there that don't. If you have always wanted to run a successful business and work for yourself, plus earn great money at the same time my next guest may have the perfect solution for you. It's my good friend from Refund Home Loans, Wayne Ormond.

Good morning, Wayne. Good morning, Karen. What do you say to people who are looking for a career change? I'd say maybe it's time to consider becoming a Refund Home Loans franchisee.

You can earn double, even triple, what you're currently earning and enjoy that sort of job satisfaction that only comes from being your own boss. But don't all franchisee opportunities do that? Some do.

What makes Refund unique is that you're getting paid for helping people, guiding them to the right product, and making sure they get the most suitable deal possible for them. Right. That's why brokers exist - to bring competition to the market. What about the refund? The refund is our secret weapon. It's a win-win for you and your customers. Ah, hence the name Refund Home Loans. How does it work? Say you're a franchisee, you help secure a loan for Mr Brown with a major bank. The bank pays you a generous commission and you share this with Mr Brown by giving him a real cash refund. I see - that is a win-win situation. Not only do our customers love the cash refund, but they love the personal service in the comfort of their own home. And the hundreds of finance options available from our panel of over 35 leading lenders. Congratulations, Wayne. I hear 'BRW' Magazine has listed Refund as the fastest growing franchise system in Australia. Thank you, Karen. Not only is our franchise system been recognised by 'BRW',

but with over 230 franchisees Australia-wide now, we're going from strength to strength.

'BRW' have also listed us as one of the fastest growing companies in Australia.

Let's listen to what some franchisees, Darryl and Florence Kelly, had to say.

As franchisees, we're able to structure our business to suit our lifestyle. We can plan our time around those special moments in our children's lives. And the Refund franchise is flexible and completely portable. We can write business wherever the opportunity arises. They certainly seem to be off to a flying start,

and they didn't seem to have any experience in the finance industry. None whatsoever. That's what really clinches it for a lot of new franchisees. They could be tradespeople, office workers or whatever. You don't need any experience to start your own Refund franchise. What do you need to start? Really, all you need is to be a people person - someone with a great personality is going to do very well for themselves. As part of the whole package, we supply ongoing training, right up to Cert IV in mortgage lending, plus all the professional support they need in the field, at head office and on top of that, great software systems to make it really easy. All you really need is a positive attitude and a love of working with people. Maybe you could do as well as Carlo.

I've been in manufacturing for the last 18 years. The long hours, the stress - I needed a change. Since being my own boss with Refund, now I choose the hours, and I've never felt healthier.

I can see how, Wayne, how he would find that very satisfying. Why wouldn't he, Karen? It's not just the money. Refund Home Loans lets you get more out of life, just like Peter. Before, I was working as a tradesman and I didn't really enjoy the job. Now, I own my own Refund franchise and I'm making the money I've always dreamt of and I'm enjoying life that goes with it. He is one happy man, isn't he? Thank you so much for coming in today, Wayne. My pleasure, Karen.

Great advice as always. To find out more about become a Refund franchisee, call Refund Home Loans on 1300 733 863 or visit Again, for those of you that want to be able to your own boss and have that freedom, make sure you get in contact with the guys. Now, to see this segment again, visit or see it in the 'New Idea' magazine.

VOICEOVER: You'll stay up all night for the new Eggs Benny Value Meal. Egg, ham and creamy hollandaise-style sauce on a toasted muffin with a hash brown and cappuccino - all for just $4.95. It's real breakfast value at Hungry Jack's.

The Morning Show stays at Novotel. With 22 hotels and resorts across Australia and New Zealand. Novotel, wherever you need to be. Welcome back. But first, some good news for female braniacs. Smart women have better sex lives. A new study shows that while beauty may bag you a man, brains will bring you more fun in the bedroom.

So what do our Wednesday jury make of this?

It's over to commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau and host of the ABC 702 breakfast show, Adam Spencer. Good morning. Bec, the study says women who can express their feelings and read those of others have better sex lives.

These are amazing. Talk about

stating the bleeding obvious. stating the bleeding obvious. Surely

it would be logical women who have

emotional intelligence can know what they want and know what they want and know what their

partner wants and have a good time.

I do believe drunk people have the

best fun in bed. When you think of

all the babies conceived after big

nights out proves that. I would

exchange my brain for enough energy to have sex. Working

to have sex. Working mothers, it

doesn't matter how big your brain

is, the old man rolls over and is, the old man rolls over and says " is, the old man rolls over and says

"How about it" and you think I want

to sleep, let my brain rest. Adam, you're a renowned braniac. Do smart men have better sex?

Your man know needs to know how to say "

say "How about it" in

say "How about it" in Latin. My

birthday, get a hotel room,

babysitter, soft music, candlelight,

she will be wearing she will be wearing sexy lingerie

and we will recite pi to 25 decimal

places. If I get my husband do do

long division that will get me

warmed up. Maybe a bit of square warmed up. Maybe a bit of square root. To the UK now and police are encouraging the public to report people wearing too much bling during the recession. The aim is to crack down on those who live a lavish lifestyle on the profits of crime. The posters say 'Too much bling - give us a ring'. Adam, should we be running a similar campaign here?

You all know the guy, he lives

around the corner from you,

around the corner from you,s hasn't

had a job for three years, drives a

Ferrari, seems dumber than a box of

hammers but wearing enough jewellery

to pay off our Budget deficit. It is

about time we clamp down on that.

I'm over it with bling. Put them in

the slammer. Should people be judged

by how much jewellery they are

wearing? This is taking it to allude

crust extent.

crust extent. No more G strings

showing. No more general trash. I

was a bit concerned because my

daughter who is 9 would be arrested.

She spends her even five life? Diva

which is made-up and pretend bling.

I'm quite concerned for Melanie's

safety if that comes in over here. And, finally, a man in India hasn't washed for 35 years in an attempt to make sure his next child is a boy.

The man already has seven daughters. Apparently a psychic once told him if he doesn't take a bath, he'll be blessed with a son. Bec, did you ever do anything to try and influence the sex of your kids?

Not, I was lucky. I got one of each

without trying too hard. That was on

one of the nights I did have enough

energy and not thinking too much.

energy and not thinking too much. I

can't understand the logic. Is this

because boys are difficulty and

because boys are difficulty and so

if he is dirty, he will get a boy? I

don't understand the connection

between the germs and dirt and

potential to to have a boy. What do

you think? If

you think? If he

you think? If he hasn't washed in 35

years, he is doing well to get sex.

He is lucky to have got any action

at all. I read up on this guy. He takes what

takes what he calls a fire bat. He

stands next to Bon fire, smokes

marijuana and praises to his

relevant God to klens him of the

germs. Next time my wife says you

are getting whiffy, I will say put

me in front of a Bon fire. We me in front of a Bon fire. We have

learned a lot of about you and a

heck of a lot about you today. Later this hour, why Kevin Federline says he's affected by the credit crunch. And pregnancy rumours for starlet Lindsay Lohan. But first, Glenn's got some words of advice about planning ah
