MICHELLE PFEIFFER'S BEAUTY SECRETS

Michelle Pfeiffer is gorgeous - no question. But perhaps not as flawless as she seems. Ordinary mortals see here how her 1990 cover pic for Esquire had to be tweaked.

THE ROARING FORTIES

The Roaring Forties Association was set up to promote sailing “in all forms”. It is not clear whether this was intended to include sailing close to the wind.

THE ASPINALL FAMILY GAME

Bassa – 24 year old scion of honorary Zulu chief John Aspinall and developer of the controversial Villa Romelia in Llandudno - is being sued by a long list of creditors for non-payment of debts incurred during the renovation of the guest house. When we asked Bassa about the claims against him he told us that his family was very influential, and that that was something we had 'better look into'. Naturally we obliged.

BIG MAC ATTACK!

A LUTA CONTINUA!

Whatever else ex-vicar and two-timing adulterer Allan Boesak is alleged to have done with the funds of the Foundation for Peace and Justice, he did attempt to get the Foundation to indirectly finance the construction of a sound studio for his wife, Elna.

SHEPSTONE AND WYLIE: part 2 - THE LIE OF THE LAND

Part 2 of the Shepsrone & Wylie forestry saga - including the scheme within a scheme that contributed to the sadness, and the fancy footwork that formed part of the liquidation.

OLD MUTUAL PAYS THE ZOLTYS

After lots of ducking and diving Old Mutual has finally stumped up R200 000 to Karin Zolty in reimbursement for the money she should have received from her parents' life policies (which were taken over by OM broker Gert Keuler in highly questionable circumstances).

YOU SAID IT!
