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!
