Since his first moment on screen, Josh Meeuwissen commanded attention on My Kitchen Rules, either by boasting of his and wife Amy's seafood-cooking skills or offering harsh critiques on other's food. But mid-way through the show, it seemed Josh had gotten carried away with being on camera and his taunts became more outlandish while his wife's reactions became more serious. After doing some initial interviews to promote the series, Josh and Amy declined to speak to the media after their second episode aired, except for two separate times they appeared on a radio program to say their piece. While I wish I had gotten a chance to interview the Perth couple, I hear they are actually fine in 'real life' and over the negative attention cast by their television personas. Safe to say any articles I worked on involving them were the ones I least enjoyed writing. I've compiled the clips below from their run on the show. Here, too, are some online links: When Alyse and Matt may have crossed the line with Josh and Amy; Della and Tully on their feud with Josh; when Josh made his controversial comment to Amy Murr, and the Josh and Amy elimination online story.
Pop Culture Stories, Thoughts and Press Releases
It's hard to keep up with the world of pop culture, moreso now that I am working full-time again, but here is my page for current articles and reporting, random thoughts on TV, music, movies, etc., AND an occasional repository for all the fun press releases I get. Check the WHO Magazine website, WHO Instagram account and WHO Facebook Page to see what things the magazine is covering — you'll usually find something I've worked on there. Starting August 2018, check out TV Week's website and their Instagram account for more.
