It’s five weeks until the Mardi Gras Party and the Star is ready to throw a rumour in the ring.

A reputable Deep Throat around town informs us that none other than our own fabulous Tiny Tina Arena will be one of the RHI’s performers in the early hours of Sunday 6 March.

Of course, Tina released a 10-year Greatest Hits album last year as well as doing a particularly camp turn in Cabaret, both good practice for a spot at our party of parties.

A Mardi Gras source preferred to neither confirm nor deny the Tina story, but did admit the Star was not far from the mark.

Think Aussie divas, the source said. And there might be more than one, adding there would definitely be big names, and they would be announced before the start of this year’s party.
