Celebrity chef Guillaume Brahimi and Ingham chicken heiress Tammie Ingham have begun a romantic relationship.
The notoriously private stylist turned co-founder of shoe brand Mara and Mine began a relationship with the French-born restaurateur three months ago. Friends say the couple are ‘smitten’ with one another.
Brahimi, 53, is a regular on the Sydney social and charity scene while Ingham, 35, is often a guest at fashion-centric and charity events along with business partner and best friend Jasmine Stefanovic (aka Mrs Karl).
The celebrated chef shares four children with his ex-wife Sanchia, the daughter of millionaire business identities Charles and Eva Curren. Sanchia began dating Paul Smith, the widower of Sydney siege victim Katrina Dawson, soon after her marriage ended. Guillaume was rumoured to be dating long-time friend Sam Rankine-Wilson in 2016 - whispers that he quashed.
Tragedy struck the Ingham family last week when Sydney businessman, philanthropist, and racing industry stalwart Bob Ingham, Tammie's uncle, died aged 88.
Ingham and Brahimi did not respond to requests for comment.
Roxy left black and blue after television fight with Candice Warner
Ads for Channel Seven’s SAS Australia went to air last week and if the teaser is anything to go by there will be no shortage of drama on the endurance reality show.
According to on-set sources, contestants were required to get into a physical fight in one scene. Publicity maven Roxy Jacenko was left black and blue after being paired with retired ironwoman - and her friend/client - Candice Warner.
The boxing challenge saw contestants don gloves and headgear as the SAS instructor shouted at them to keep fighting. The same challenge took place on the UK’s version of the program, shocking viewers when a female was punched by a male rival.
But the ramifications of Jacenko and Warner's fisticuffs went beyond physical injuries. According to the on-set snitch, it also ended their friendship, and the pair have terminated business ties since the scuffle.
Jacenko's influencer management business The Ministry of Talent was until recently managing Warner’s career, most notably during her husband David Warner’s global headline-making ball-tampering scandal.
Rumours the former athlete had fallen out with Jacenko gathered steam last week when Social Diary's industry newsletter announced new management for mother-of-three Warner.
SAS is due to air next month and will see contestants including former Bali inmate Schapelle Corby, retired rugby union player and Bachelor Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, and Jackson Warne (son of Shane), undergo excruciating physical and psychological tests that are used in the real SAS selection process.
Packer Barham gets wedding-ready - sans groom
Publishing heiress Francesca Packer Barham has apparently split from her personal trainer-cum-sneaker cleaner ex-boyfriend Sam Zacahria and is lapping up the single life. The usually elusive Packer Barham has been a social butterfly of late and is keeping friends guessing just what she is up to.
Chessie went on a social media posting spree last week sharing images from sunset drinks to selfies of her professional makeup. But what really got friends talking was her plans to go wedding dress shopping.
The buxom brunette planned to try on bridal dresses at the Vera Wang boutique in the Intercontinental - until it seems she realised that being spotted trying on gowns when she doesn't have a boyfriend, let alone an actual groom, was probably not the best look.
Last month the 25-year-old set a new Australian record at auction after dropping more than half a million dollars on a huge diamond sparkler. Packer shut down rumours of an engagement telling Emerald City sister column Private Sydney: "I promise you there is nothing to announce."
Drew Mitchell in new romance
Former rugby union player and notorious ladies man Drew Mitchell has caught himself a new squeeze. Friends of the sporting commentator say, Mitchell, 36 has been spied getting cozy with aspiring model Charlotte Barge. When Emerald City caught up with a giggly Barge she was in the midst of what sounded like more than a few celebratory champagnes to mark her 30th birthday last Friday.
Barge was unable to confirm or deny she was in a relationship with Mitchell but if liking each other's photos on social media is anything to go by it's clear the pair aren't shy about being linked to one another.
The former Wallaby has a long list of famous ex-girlfriends including Delta Goodrem and Jasmine Stefanovic.
Up until recently Barge was said to be dating fintech entrepreneur Andrew Webber whose family made headlines for controversial dealings in relation to its failed money transfer app Bux.
