Brynne’s out to make a splash

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

BRYNNE Edel­sten’s TV ca­reer ap­pears far from over, with the re­turn of her re­al­ity show My Be­daz­zled Life on the cards. The so­cialite re­fused to say the show had been dumped and in­stead left open the door for an an­nounce­ment about a sec­ond sea­son.

‘‘I’m not really al­lowed to talk about whether my show is re­newed or not, but think what you might,’’ Edel­sten says. ‘‘It’s be­yond not ruled out.’’ Edel­sten’s fly-on-the-wall se­ries Brynne: My Be­daz­zled Life , which aired on Chan­nel 7 on Thurs­day nights last year, made the Top 10 most-watched shows the first two episodes.

While the au­di­ence num­bers slowly melted away, it has not been to Edel­sten’s detri­ment.

Seven has kept her on their books as one of 14 iden­ti­ties on the re­al­ity div­ing se­ries Celebrity Splash , which will soon screen live-to-air.

Each week the iden­ti­ties will face their fears and dive from dif­fer­ent heights and be judged by ex­perts on their per­for­mance.

Those who will belly whack their way through the se­ries are co­me­dian Josh Thomas, Olympic swim­ming cham­pion Leisel Jones, former Aus­tralian crick­eter An­drew Sy­monds and TV veteran Denise Drys­dale.

Edel­sten said she had pos­i­tive feed­back from her Celebrity Splash coach dur­ing re­hearsals for the se­ries but the ex­pe­ri­ence has left her bat­tered and bruised.

‘‘Ap­par­ently I am quite grace­ful in the water, they say I’m a nat­u­ral,’’ says Edel­sten. ‘‘It’s a lot of fun, but it is so dif­fi­cult. ‘‘The water hurts ev­ery time you hit it. It’s not soft.’’ Even if My Be­daz­zled Life is not re­newed, Seven seems to have some­thing else in store for Edel­sten. She has vowed to re­turn this year. ‘‘This will not be the last of me at all,’’ she gig­gles. ‘‘You will see me so much through­out the year, you will be sick of me.’’
