Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has announced the end of her partnership with WW – formerly Weight Watchers – following her recent 18-kilogram weight loss.

“My WW journey has been one I’ve shared candidly over the last few years,” the radio host, 48, shared on Instagram.

“It has been a partnership that helped me change my eating habits and educated me on the right choices for my body, to keep healthy and active.”

Jackie O ends collaboration with WW

“As I come to the end of the partnership this month, I wanted to thank the WW team for being such an amazing bunch of people to work with and for being my cheerleaders along the way.

“It’s been a true joy and I’m so thankful to WW for helping me.”

The mother of one explained her decision on her hit radio show Kyle & Jackie O on KIIS FM on Monday morning.

“They helped me and now we’ve achieved the goal,” she said, with co-host Kyle Sandilands describing the collaboration as a “success story.”

Jackie O has been accused of using weight loss drug Ozempic and undergoing bariatric surgery to achieve her results, but she has consistently denied these claims.

“I can’t really defend myself anymore … and if people want to believe that I’ve had surgery or I’m taking Ozempic, just go ahead and think that, that’s fine, but I haven’t,” she said.

Many of the comments suggested WW’s failure to highlight Jackie’s recent weight loss was ‘evidence’ she had used more than just the company’s methods to achieve the result.

“Why is it that WW do not promote the success story,” one person commented.

“Why aren’t people honest they just did Ozempic,” another said.

Others defended the radio host.

“Looking great Jackie… I think she said intermittent fasting, cutting out carbs and alcohol was the key,” one said.

“Looking beautiful don’t worry about the negativity,” another said.

Jackie said she’s stopped short of deleting such comments and thanked supporters for defending her.

Jackie O spoke of finding the “willpower” to follow the weight loss program, saying it “just clicked” for her.

“I think if you’ve ever been on diets and things you just know there comes a time where it clicks and you’re motivated and it’s so hard to get that,” she said of her health journey.

“I’ve been trying to get that motivation for years and still, it just didn’t click for me, but this time it did and I can’t explain why but it did. I just had that motivation.

“I just wanted to feel good about myself.”

Jackie O first signed onto WW in 2020 and lost 10 kilogram, only to gain the weight back. She recommitted to the program in 2022.

“Last year I joined WW again because I wanted to get my health back in order and I know their program works for me. Losing weight was never about what I looked like in the mirror, but rather an overall sense of well-being and trying to re gain my energy levels,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

“5 months ago I was 18 kilos heavier and I had zero energy. My health was suffering as a result, so I decided to do a complete lifestyle change. I incorporated daily exercise, eating well and I gave up alcohol (if you can believe!!) and I’ve never felt as good as I do now.

“I can honestly say I feel happier and healthier than I did in my 20’s and I’ve got more energy for myself and as a mumma (and a dog mumma!),” she added.

Kyle and Jackie O honeymoon

Jackie O recently joined Sandilands and his new wife Tegan Kynaston on their honeymoon in Europe.

In May, the presenter announced she was now ready to date again, five years after her divorce from photographer Lee Henderson, with whom she shares daughter Kitty, 12.

Jackie said she had signed up to the dating app Hinge and was chatting to “three or four men” on the app.

“I just thought, hey, I’m going to do it because why not?” she added.

Why are the Emmys happening again if they just had a ceremony in January?


18 1

A new batch of Emmy nominations has dropped, which might seem perplexing, considering it was just yesterday that we were witnessing The Bear‘s Ebon Moss-Bachrach kiss his cast-mate Matty Matheson square on the lips on stage at the Peacock Theater after their show won Best Comedy Series. Well, that’s what it feels like, anyway.

Moss-Bachrach and all the boys and girls of The Bear are back in force on this new list of nominees, even breaking the record for most nods ever for a comedy series in a single year, but no one can quite figure out what season they’re all being nominated for.

What about the Emmys that happened in January?

That’s an excellent question! In January, television’s biggest names flocked to the Emmy Awards red carpet for the show’s 75th edition. That event was initially scheduled for its usual September slot in 2023, purposeful and carefully timed to ring in new television seasons with a celebration of the last, but then a major Hollywood crisis broke out that you may or may not recall.

2023 was defined, in part, by a pair of dueling Hollywood strikes that put nearly every film and television production on standby from May to November. Not only did the writers and actors’ strikes affect release schedules, but they also prevented those in the WGA and SAG-AFTRA from working in any capacity, including participating in a telecast like the Emmys as presenters and hosts (they could still be there as nominees, but who would be handing out the awards and delivering all the bad jokes?).

Make no confusion, however; the 75th Emmy Awards count as the 2023 Emmys and, regardless of the change in broadcast date, the only shows eligible for that ceremony were still those that aired between June 2022 and May 2023. That is why seasons that aired long before the 75th Emmy statuettes were even handed out — such as season 2 of The Bear, which dropped June 2023 — count towards the Emmys happening this September. The January ceremony awarded the FX show’s first season. So, for the dissenters who didn’t like the show’s third season that recently came out, don’t worry, that one hasn’t even been nominated yet.

2023 was not the first time the Emmys were delayed

The ceremony is rarely moved to a different date, but it’s not entirely unheard of.

Take 2001, which saw the ceremony shifted by several months. The 53rd Primetime Emmy Awards were initially slated to air in mid-September, as usual, but saw two delays push the awards back by a good seven weeks. The initial delay was prompted by the 9/11 attacks, which devastated the nation just five days before the ceremony was initially slated to air, and the 53rd Emmys were later delayed yet again by the early-October commencement of the two-decade-long war in Afghanistan.

Which Show Got the Most Nominations for the 2024 Emmys?

33 2

33 3

For anyone betting on which TV shows would be nominated today at the Emmys, one title was a pretty safe bet. Throughout its run, the epic series Shgun was widely acclaimed across every aspect of its production, so it would be a shock if it didn’t get nominated at all. Now, with the nominations out, the series has made the cut and then some. The Hiroyuki Sanada-led series landed a whopping 25 nominations, the most for any TV series in 2024.
