CHANTELLE Raleigh is a former ballerina but she’s been occupying more column space lately for her role in the movie Any Questions for Ben? and for her romantic ties with sports stars.
Raleigh, who once dated North Melbourne ruckman Hamish Mcintosh, was involved in a relationship with National Basketball League player Adam Gibson when she filmed her part in observational series WAG Nation.
Since filming ended she has been romantically attached to Melbourne Storm player Justin O’neill.
Raleigh, also a model and part-time flight attendant, appears in WAG Nation alongside fashion boutique owner Jackie Spong (wife of Carlton footballer Jarrad Waite), Terry Biviano (wife of NRL Rooster Anthony Minichiello), Lynette Bolton (wife of Sydney Swan Jude Bolton) and Jana Peterson (NRL Shark John Williams’ girlfriend).
You’ll also learn about the art of ‘‘ motor boating’’ (a bedroom activity) and hear words such as ‘‘ calatimy’’ (which we think was meant to come out as ‘‘ calamity’’.) What have you been up to since filmingwag Nation? Any Questions for Ben? came out in February. It was a great experience and I’m really moving towards acting now, attending auditions and seeing where that
takes me. What has Any Questions for Ben? done for your
profile? I co-star with Josh Lawson; co-starring next to such huge talent is an honour. What are you hoping to see when you tune into Wagnation? Anything can be edited. I’m confident in what I did. I anticipate it will be fun. In the first episode there’s interest in how you and Jackie (Spong) get on. There’s some stuff in there about whether you’ve had a boob job or not . . . I don’t really feel the need to get ratings at someone else’s expense. I don’t have any drama in my personal life so I didn’t feel any need to fake it and create it for the hell of it. You are no longer with partner Adam . . . We unfortunately broke up during filming. You are now with Justin (O’neill). How’s that going? He’s such an angel. I’m just so lucky to have met him.
WAG Nation, Arena, tonight, 9.30pm.
