Just wait 'til Benjis missus enters the fray……and maybe even Benj himself…
The Biv, the Jo & the Zo
IT BEARS the hallmark of gossip gold - warring footballers’ WAGs - but shoe designer, socialite and wife of Roosters captain Anthony Minichiello, Terry Biviano, says it just isn’t so when it comes to her much scrutinised friendship with soon-to-be-married WAG, actor Jodi Gordon.
In a few weeks, Gordon will tie the knot with Minichiello’s teammate, > <big>Braith Anasta</big>> , and, according to gossip within NRL circles, it is simply not social etiquette to miss a teammate’s wedding, especially when you are the captain and it is such a star-studded affair as the Gordon and Anasta nuptials.
‘‘It’s the first I’ve heard of it,’’ The Biv informed PS this week when asked about reports that she and Gordon had a falling out that resulted in The Biv and Mini boycotting the coming Balinese wedding.
‘‘Look, we are friends, but she is not one of my closest girlfriends, so I just don’t know where this is all coming from. We were invited to the wedding but we cannot go because we had already organised a holiday to the Whitsundays with a group of friends,’’ Biviano explained.
But friends of the two women report that Biviano and Gordon have had not just a cooling of relations in recent months but rather more a full-blown ice age.
The pair had been firm friends not so long ago. Biviano was with Gordon on that fateful night in June 2009 in the hours before the actor famously went ‘‘missing’’, telling friends at the time ‘‘she had seemed fine’’.
A few hours later Gordon was discovered cowering in the corner of a bedroom with bikie Mark Judge making bizarre claims about intruders scaling the walls outside. Her long-term relationship with media heir Ryan Stokes ended soon after.
PS noted the high-profile women barely looked at one another, let alone exchanged pleasantries, when they were seated within spitting distance of each other at the most recent David Jones fashion show.
As for rumours Biviano was upset with Gordon after an unspecified event at her own Vanity Fair-themed wedding back in January, the style queen said it simply was not true.
Meanwhile it can be confirmed that Gordon and Anasta have signed a deal worth an estimated $100,000 with Woman’s Day for exclusive rights to their Balinese wedding.
Just for a laugh
