queens Princess Laya and Regina Slay were the per­fect “dis­trac­tion” for Gam­ble Breaux, above, as she com­pleted the Ade­laide Oval roof climb ahead of the Feast Fes­ti­val.

The re­al­ity TV star-turnedsinger put aside her fear of heights to scale the iconic sta­dium’s grand­stand this week be­fore she per­forms at the fes­ti­val’s open­ing-night party tonight. “I’m ac­tu­ally scared of heights,” says Gam­ble, with hair and make by Colour Cos­met­ica.

“I was ter­ri­fied. But we had such a good laugh, they were such a pleas­ant dis­trac­tion. The view was quite spec­tac­u­lar... (and) I’ll do any­thing to get a good shot!”

The Real Housewives of Mel­bourne star has writ­ten a new track, Fire and Fury, for Ade­laide’s an­nual Queer Arts and Cul­tural fes­ti­val, which she will per­form live tonight at the Mi­gra­tion Mu­seum, Kin­tore Ave, city. “It’s about not feel­ing shame about your sex­u­al­ity and be­ing happy and danc­ing in the light,” she says. “It’s about em­brac­ing who you are and proudly show­ing it to the rest of the world.”
