Having been introduced in France in 1987, The Product of the Year Awards are now in their third year in Australia. With an aim of giving consumers the option to vote for the everyday products that not only work, but save time and money, the winners of the 2012 Product of the Year Awards have just been announced by ambassador Lisa Wilkinson and the judging panel. The awards focus on everything from household appliances to pest control, but it's the 10 beauty categories that we're interested in. With over 7,000 Australians voting in the awards, it's a great way to suss out which hair colour, shampoo, razor and body lotion is worth buying next!
Stars are already in holiday mode, and shared their fun adventures on Twitter! Rachael Finch showed off her fish-catching skills, while Hayden Quinn suited up for a friend's wedding. Lisa Wilkinson was very excited to interview Kermit the Frog on Today, and Chris Colfer joined posed with cardboard cut-outs of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Hundreds of “Little Monsters” who gathered and braved the cold in front of Sydney Town Hall in an array of Lady Gaga-inspired costumes in order to see the star weren’t the only lucky ones who had scored tickets to the gig last night. Around 200 Aussie VIPs were invited to the special one-off performance at Monster Hall, including Brian McFadden, Australia’s Got Talent contestant Jack Vidgen, Lisa Wilkinson and Megan Washington. Brian brought his girlfriend Vogue Williams to the concert while Jack smiled big for the cameras, showing off his new dental veneers. Lucky Today co-host Lisa was having her second serving of Gaga this week as she sat in on Tracy Grimshaw’s A Current Affair interview on Monday.
In the recent battle between Channel Seven and the Nine Network over Larry Emdur’s talent, the winners are Larry and Seven, with Larry signing a deal reported to be worth $800,000 to stay with his current employers. Larry currently co-hosts The Morning Show with Kylie Gillies, which follows Sunrise every weekday morning at 9am. Talk is that Nine were looking to replace Karl Stefanovic on the Today show and had Larry in mind for the job. (Karl is moving to a different program with the station.) He would’ve worked with Lisa Wilkinson and been direct competition for Sunrise’s Melissa Doyle and David Koch. So Seven moved quickly and re-signed Larry, giving him a much larger pay cheque. Now the Daily Telegraph is reporting that his female colleagues at Seven are unhappy with his inflated salary, but a rep has denied this, saying, “Kylie is over the moon, but has already told Larry he must now get her a present from Tiffany’s. He’s agreed.”
