Forget about a faked “boxing” bout – cuddly gossip queen Rachel “The Duchess” Glucina trumped the last act of The Ridges TV series.
As Mummy Ridge and her gorgeous offspring raged over nasty comments tweeted by the New Zealand Herald’s much-loved diary darling, who was seen coming down the stairs but the hugely popular Ms G herself.
Trapped like a moth to a flame by the camera, a black-clad Ms Glucina appeared to falter – was she going to turn and run, the viewer held his breath? – before striding resolutely on, turning her face from the unrelenting lens.
Did we hear “bitch”, “don’t trip over”" yes, trip over" and other ugly-ness from the Blonded Ones?
The Blonded Ones made the most of Ms Glucina’s cameo appearance to settle a few gossip scores.
Which raises an interesting point.
Ms Glucina’s appearance was without doubt the highlight of the final episode, yet oddly no reviewers – content to scribble feverishly about the “boxing” bout – appear to have mentioned it until now.
Could it be the others wrote about what was already well known for weeks and didn’t watch the show at all?

Or maybe, just maybe, it wasn't the real Trixy Tattle-Tale, but a cunning and cruelly stage-managed body double planted to fox us all...
Will the truth out??? Do we care???
Guess who, don’t sue…
