NO wonder pop star Ricki-Lee Coulter looks so happy at the moment – shes literally posing all the way to the bank.
Keen to show off her trim figure after losing 25kg, the former plus-size star has done a lucrative deal with OK! magazine.

The organizer of an Ottawa music festival where the stage collapsed during a sudden storm, scurrying thousands of fans who were watching the band Cheap Trick, called the accident “a freak situation” at a press conference Monday.
Organizers had been monitoring the weather moments before a violent summer gale toppled the main stage at the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest on Sunday night, said Mark Monahann, the festival’s executive director.
