FM 104 have rubbished Nadia Forde's claim that the station refuse to play either of her latest pop songs because her ex-boyfriend - DJ Mark Noble - works there.

"They're the only station in Ireland to never play my records. They don't even talk about me," the model/singer/reality star/whatever-you're-having-yourself said.

"F**k it, I might as well be honest... They'll probably love the press."

But an FM 104 spokesperson said there was "no way we would let a former relationship affect our product".

Of course, there might be another, simpler, explanation for why Nadia's records aren't played.

It should occur to anyone who heard her rendition of our national anthem some while ago.


Speaking of TV3 stars, Xposé presenter Lisa Cannon is determined to prove she is in no way a complete and utter bridezilla.

And what better way to highlight this than by posing for a four-page bridal spread in this month's edition of 'VIP' magazine?

In the interview, Lisa discusses the trials and tribulations brides go through - from signing off on her Vera Wang wedding invites to flying an Irish tenor to Florence to compromising on what the groomsmen will wear.

"Everything is money, money, money. Anything I like seems to be really expensive. I obviously have really expensive taste," the modest star said.

Call me a cynic, but I think they might just have seen Lisa coming.


Author Christine Dwyer Hickey is on the PR route promoting her new book 'The Lives of Women'.

"It's exhausting," she said. "You spend the whole time explaining yourself and your book.

"It's like Philip Larkin said: 'You spend the whole time going round pretending to be yourself'."
