Charmyne Palavi engaged to a 22 year old

By johnboy 31 July 2009 200

In May RiotACT, nay Canberra, thrilled to a vicarious association with the 4 Corners Rugby League scandal.

Former long term Canberran Charmyne Palavi (and former partner of the police-assaulting ex-Brumby David Palavi, although they never married she just changed her name by deed poll in a move which would have terrified most men) both thrilled and to some repulsed with her tales of hunting down young rugby league players for her pleasure.

Stirred21 has tipped us of that the 38 year old Charmyne has, however, told Woman’s Day that she’s decided to settle down with a young rugby union player from Queensland, Michael Browne, 22.

    To Michael, Charmyne is the epitome of beauty — he adores her. And he insists he’ll still think that way when she’s 50 and he’s 34.

    “This is the first time I’ve really been in love, and I know it’s the real thing,” he says. “I don’t see what the fuss is about. I’ve had no negative feedback. My mates think it’s great. I’ve pulled one of the most well known women in Australia.”

Good luck to them.

UPDATED: Thanks to Skidbladnir for digging out a PerthNow story on Charmyne’s twittering about shopping for engagements rings last month. If you haven’t had enough of her yet the Daily Telegraph has a racy slideshow.

UPDATED: Charmyne (or someone convincingly coming across as her) has kindly logged on to share her thoughts:

    Having sat back for sometime now reading in amazement the comments you people make about me I thought it was only fair that I contribute.
    Your attacks on my looks, my morals & my parenting skills are immature & unwarranted.
    Im used to reading lies about me and attacks on my looks etc and I suppose with the media stories I have to expect this kind of backlash, so it barely fazes me BUT when u question me as a mother and a good provider to my children and you put my ex (brumbies player)David Palavi on a pedastal enough is enough. I left and abusive & unfaithful (on his part) relationship with him to protect my children, I was faithful to him for ten years and upon leaving him made some poor choices of partners ie Thurston & Senior, this far from makes me a slut. I am not the wann-a-be WAG you all make me out to be if that was the case I would of stuck around and turned a blind eye to the cheating,gambling,drinking, drugs etc like all the rest do. Those on here claiming to ‘know me’ but then writing lies – grow up!

What’s Your opinion?

Keeping your options open there, I-filled?

According to the TV tabloids, Charmyne was assaulted by some woman at a pub last night or the night before and taken to hospital with a broken wrist. Now that’s not nice. Charmyne doesn’t strike me as someone prone to unpleasant behaviour – quite the opposite. I wish her a speedy recovery!

Out of interest, what’s the RiotACT’s policy on defending the anonymity of its posters if comments lead to defamation cases?

Defamation writs are usually served on more than than respondent at once: eg. the publisher or broadcaster (RiotACT) and the individual who allegedly defamed the applicant.

See tinyurl.com/llvgr3

I’d say bugger all, especially if the poster isn’t paying for the service. And that’s the way it should be. If you want to slag off someone from behind an anonymous moniker without getting your facts straight, you deserve everything you get.

i see she was called “nrl ‘cougar'” in the australian today – is ‘cougar’ a legitimate term? i’d have thought association with the nrl would, in itself, be defamatory!

seems the court has decided her defamation case has legs (like i imagine she does) and is set to go to a jury…

It infuriates me more then anything when people use the “if it were a man he’d be getting high-fives”. Bla f***ing bla. You’re all right – it isn’t the 1950’s anymore, and I can GUARANTEE that a woman does not ‘look up to men’ that sleep around, nor give them high 5’s. In fact, I’m sure Charmyne’s supporters are guilty to the same idolisation. The argument is old and outdated. Move on.

Look at the end of the day I could go on and on but would it really matter? You have formed your opinion of me already from the media fabricated stories & regardless of how much I try to set the record straight they will always print what they want,whether it be true or not.
Case in point – WHO Magazine claiming they had interviewed me and then went on to “quote” me. I have never spoken to them in my life.

There are defamation laws to prevent such ‘liberties’ being taken. Talk to a lawyer. You can even use this thread as evidence of your tarnished reputation.

Yeah right.

The next 12 months will be interesting for you.

Next.

Same shit on here day in day out…

BANNER MATERIAL!!

Fisho 9:43 pm 02 Aug 09

Hey Charmyne, relax.

Anyone who believes what the media has to dribble is too stupid to suck oxygen. You do NOT have to defend yourself for daring to live. The world needs more like you.

Good luck to you, I hope you have a good future, and the jealous small minded inbreds can go nob an unlubricated chicken.

Your husband to be is a lucky bloke. Hope he realises it.
Cheers,
Fisho.

Charmyne 9:17 pm 02 Aug 09

Scantily clad? aaaah we are back to the what she was wearing rant again. For the comment that I have photos of myself draped all over footballers – r u aware that it was just a night out with some girlfriends who also had their pics taken with players,along with many many women in that venue that night. I didnt take these pics they were posted on a friends facebook page and had been for over a month before anyone even made a fuss. So its ok for other women to get their pics taken -just not ME? The Australian team on this night had their shirts all off & were dancing til the early hours of the morning with girls on tables in very compromising positions – its funny tho how the media latched onto a couple of ‘casual snaps’ taken of me with some footballers??? I suppose it makes for a better story hey.
How disgusting that because Im a mum that it seems I dont have a right to go out every now and again, it was Melbourne Cup and my children were with a nanny.
Same shit on here day in day out… attacks on my age, my looks & my ability to be a good mother, get some new material.

ps – I didn’t write many pieces of that Daily Telegraph story, as if I would write I had been with “many many” footballers when thats not the case. I was asked to write a summary to add to the bottom of the story and I did, I asked to have that line changed and they didnt, then it was put in the newspaper as if I had written it.

Look at the end of the day I could go on and on but would it really matter? You have formed your opinion of me already from the media fabricated stories & regardless of how much I try to set the record straight they will always print what they want,whether it be true or not.
Case in point – WHO Magazine claiming they had interviewed me and then went on to “quote” me. I have never spoken to them in my life.

Enjoy your forum and hi to the media types on here who filter the info posted on here back to Dave u think we dont talk all the time? LOSERS

As long as your kids are OK Charmayne, and you and your partner are happy, then good on you.

What proof do you have that Charmyne is ‘mentally inept’?

I believe her cognitive abilities, or lack there of, are evident for all to see.

That’s an interesting ‘evidence base’, however lacking in scientific rigour ….

Scientific evidence is evidence which serves to either support or counter a scientific theory or hypothesis.
My theory/hypothesis is she is mentally inept and her maturity is lacking.

Scientific evidence should be empirical, meaning gained via observation and/or experience.
I have observed her comments and behaviour in the media. My observations are her behaviour is erratic, immature and will likely be self destructive later in life, when she is forced by age to quit the party life style as opposed to giving it up gracefully. My experience with people like her first hand also lends proof to my hypothesis.

I reckon you are awesome Charmyne!

Good on you Charmyne. Don’t feel any need to carry on the conversation though … because people (the majority) who aren’t ill-meaning trolls never needed your comment to understand where you’ve been coming from.

Still, waiting for Charmayne (cough cough)to say something on Twatter/Fakebook.

Question:

Who would you rather be stuck in a lift with?

a) Scantily clad woman with large breasts and a spray tan who minds her own business and talks happily about her new fiance and their wedding plans, or
b) Somebody who will ridicule, disrespect, criticise, berate, taunt and purposefully humiliate you, put you down, call you names, reject you, make you feel unimportant and make unkind comments about your clothes, appearance and sex life; regardless of whether that lowers your self-esteem and sense of self-worth, gives you an inferiority complex or causes you to feel clinically depressed.

I would prefer the latter. I would give the latter no reason to act in such a way towards me, meaning we could probably have a nice mature chat in the life.

Since the characteristics of the latter were taken from an article on verbal abuse, I am surprised that you are supportive of such people. However, each to their own.

I would suggest that the blame for the increasingly shallow view of woman is a consequence of woman like you.

And I would suggest that the blame for the increasingly disrespectful view of women is a consequence of people like yourself.

I believe her cognitive abilities, or lack there of, are evident for all to see. Her actions and words are the proof.
As for your first comment, well, I will simply have to try harder to meet your expectation of how I should show respect for women. Perhaps I’ll start by going to the rugby club, finding the first tipsy scantily clad girl, hanging off her while complimenting her huge rack and then nailing her at my place! Would that be less disrespectful? Because according to you, wanting woman to exercise confidence and maturity is very disrespectful.

I would point out that your logic is flawed. If the former were “minding her own business” she would not be talking “happily about her new fiancé and their wedding plans”. More likely though is that the former would be pushing her top down, giggling like a 2yr old and flirting with me in front of my girlfriend.

In any case, it is apparent that many contributors, even those who don’t approve of her ways, are caught up in keeping everything politically correct. Sure, she lives like crap but we mustn’t say anything.

Just trying to emphasis the mundanity of it! 🙂 In a sense. Mind you, it is the sort of newstainment that fills the TV, magazines and clearly, the Internets as well. The cult of celebrity (even if only a minor deity in our grand pantheon) and the ongoing, seemingly primal fascination we have with women’s bodies – what they do with it and who they do it with.
