"My name is actually Rose. All of my family call me Rose but I have been always known as Elaine," she revealed.

The TV3 star said that her sister is to blame for the name mix-up.

"When I was born my sister had a tantrum and locked herself in the bathroom until my parents agreed to call me Rose. But they really wanted to call me Elaine. They just agreed so she would come out of the bathroom," she laughed.

The brunette spoke this week about her disastrous debs experience, when she was forced to recruit a last minute date.

"I brought my sister's boyfriend's brother. He very kindly stood in because the guy i was going out with at the time dumped me two weeks before. His excuse was he had to pay the car insurance and couldn't afford to go the debs," she told RSVP Magazine.

"I actually think my debs dress was lovely," she added. "I made it myself with the help of my sister. I picked out the fabric and the pattern and my sister did design in college so she gave me advice as well. It was a floor length, bottle green velvet dress with a sweetheart neckline and long sleeves and I wore a pearl choker with it, which was all the range back then!"

She added that the night was a "little bit of an anti climax".
