In a move that is set to burst the Nine star’s bubble, New Idea has exclusively learned that Karl’s scorned ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn has teamed up with his former Today host, Lisa Wilkinson, in a bid to steal his thunder.
Insiders are whispering that Cassandra is set to waltz her way back into the limelight by taking part in the rebooted version Channel Ten’s Dancing with the Stars.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Cass is set to be joining the star-studded line up of the show.
“Thorburn’s name has been mentioned in hushed tones around Ten, with the network keen to cash in on the huge amount of publicity her marriage break-up with Karl has generated over the past two years,” a source spilled to the publication.
And according to New Idea’s insider, Cass is set to utilise Lisa Wilkinson, with The Project host advising and helping Cass compile her audition tape in secret.
“Lisa has been really crucial in helping Cass try and land a role on DWTS,” the insider explains, adding the pair have kept their conversations and catch-ups away from prying eyes.
The news comes as insiders spill that despite the stunning pictures and happy faces, Karl and Jasmine’s lavish Mexican wedding was in fact a disaster.
“Karl has been an absolute nightmare – everyone keeps calling him ‘Groomzilla’, a source revealed. It didn’t help that best friend James Packer pulled out of the wedding and the drama surrounding his Today show producer’s sacking.
“He’s barking out orders, throwing tantrums if things aren’t exactly what he wanted – it’s just insane. Everyone is walking on eggshells.”
