Welcome to the fourth week of House Rules.

This week, the house being renovated is Brooke and Grant’s house in Tasmania. The house is a 2 and a ½ bedroom cottage for 9 people! The aim is to not only renovate the house, but also extend it, to increase the size to 5 bedrooms. The house currently has a mortgage of $250 000.

This new trailer from Lifetime for The Lottery looks pretty exciting. In a world where fertility is a real problem and the human race faces extinction, the US Government gets to decide which women will carry 100 newly fertilised embryos.

Earlier today we pondered why the New Zealand Herald were peddling stories for another media outlet. While they seem to be putting TVNZ under increasing scrutiny, Mediaworks seem to be enjoying quite the “free” publicity from them.

Fisher isn’t the only one dishing out the Mediaworks love. Embattled Media Commentator, John Drinnan, who last week gave Radio New Zealand staff an uneasy start to their long weekend with news that up to 15 of them were losing their jobs when in fact they weren’t, was last night fist pumping for Campbell Live.
