His ex-girlfriend Rachael Taylor, who is receiving medical treatment, is also praised for her brave decision to take legal action. Backstage, he looked happy and ready to return to work, but critics say it was too much, too soon. (CHEERS) To be offered something like this two weeks out of rehab, it's way too soon. And once again, the famous Newton family has been left cleaning up Matt's mess. How's the family holding up today? Mother Patti stuck in Melbourne while her son returns to rehab in Sydney. With Matthew, we're not talking about just a drug addiction, we are talking about mental health issues. This is the Rome hotel foyer where Rachael Taylor says her now ex-fiance bashed her. The starlet's injuries were so severe a week later, she's still recovering. There are also claims she was left cowering in Newton's dressing room after another attack. She's shown great leadership and is a great role model for women who are in relationships where they are unsafe. Matthew Newtown faces further drama in the courts. Rachael Taylor has not only applied for an Apprehended Violence Order, she'll discuss with her lawyers tomorrow whether to pursue assault charges. Another of Newton's ex-girlfriends, Brooke Satchwell, wouldn't comment today. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to assaulting her. The conviction was later quashed. When people display violence there's a very good chance that violence will continue. The Rome hotel where one of the alleged assaults happened was the Westin Excelsior.

Reporter Jo McKenna is outside the hotel. Jo, are the staff describing what they saw? Mark, hotel staff I've spoken to say they can't comment to protect the privacy of their guests but it's understood

some reported hearing Rachael Taylor scream out for help

As she was allegedly being attacked

by Matthew Newton. Her head hit the

floor in the lobby of the hotel. The

staff here today are looking very

nervous and they are adamant that

they can not comment for privacy reasons. The Excelsior is a popular hotel, there must have been many witnesses?

This hotel is in the heart of the

luxury hotel district here in Rome.

talking the Top End of the market.

This hotel wants to put this

incident behind it as quickly as possible. Police in the Philippines are under fire for their handling of a day-long siege which ended with nine hostages killed. A sacked police officer armed with an M16 assault rifle took a tourist group from Hong Kong hostage. Some were released but many others died before police could shoot the gunman. Hong Kong's chief executive says he was disappointed. It is our intention to bring the wounded and the wounded's relatives back to Hong Kong as soon as possible. The gunman had demanded his job back. Sydney teenager Jesinta Campbell has finished third in this year's Miss Universe contest in Las Vegas. The title went to Mexico but Jesinta didn't walk away without a sash. She was crowned 'Miss Congeniality'. Jesinta Campbell's national costume might not have been a winner but the 19-year-old's personality won the hearts

of her fellow entrants. ANNOUNCER: The winner of the award for Miss Congeniality 2010 is... .. Australia! She wowed the judges in the swimsuit section, slipping into the top 10. Jesinta slinked into the top 5 in her evening gown. Then she was asked whether governments should have the right to stop women wearing burkas. And I don't think the government should have any say in what we wear because we can all make our own personal choices. And then there were three. The second runner up is... .. Australia! Miss Mexico won the title. Jesinta now calls Sydney home but not long ago she was a Gold Coast schoolgirl. To be acknowledged as Miss Congeniality

that just speaks volumes. She's such a beautiful person, obviously, on the outside

but certainly on the inside. We're just so proud. While she didn't take home the crown, our Miss Congeniality says she's just happy to have made the competition. See the whole Miss Universe pageant tonight on digital 7TWO at 7:00. Our last success at Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins, was the star of today's Sydney Fashion Festival show.

Brought my mum five $1 Scratchies for Mother's Day, put them in a card. Week later I got a phone call, yeah, she won $20,000. She gave half of it to me. # Scratch me happy! # Fire crews have spent the afternoon containing a grassfire threatening homes, a high school and an industrial estate at Arndell Park, near Blacktown. Firefighters weren't able to save several sheds on the property but did stop it spreading to neighbouring homes. Crews are still damping down at least one of the sheds because of concerns it may contain asbestos. It's not clear how the fire started. Parramatta Council has stepped in to try to save the childhood home of cricket legend Richie Benaud from demolition. It's a race against the wrecking ball with no guarantee of protection for the place where the aspiring captain honed his game. The removalists are in already. But Parramatta Council and the local cricket club have joined forces to save the place where Richie Benaud taught himself cricket. He played test matches by himself on his back veranda and in the back garden. Developers bought the house from Roads Minister David Borger in May. The Benauds only sold it to him because he agreed not to knock it down. We certainly kept our obligations to the Benauds in keeping the house as it was, and we've now sold the house, a new owner has it. The Planning Minister will be asked to save the house - not for any architectural merit. Sure, it looks a bit tired now, but a bit of love and care and an interim heritage order can look after that. The order would halt the owner's plans to build three houses on Richie's old pitch. The Minister is being urged to act very quickly, because while the heritage order isn't in place the owner can do what he likes with the property,

meaning for this house, it could soon be stumps.

Demolition doesn't require council approval. We need to act swiftly on this to ensure that the public interest is maintained. An American judge has signed off on Tiger Woods' divorce. He and wife Elin went to a Florida court this morning to end their 6-year marriage.
