Novax Djokovic Can Remain in Australia, Judge Rules

The government's decision to cancel his visa has been voided or declared invalid.

The government must pay Djokovic's costs as agreed or assessed.

The government must "take all necessary steps" to immediately release Djokovic from detention, which must happen no more than 30 minutes after the decision was made.

Djokovic's passport and all other personal effects must be returned to him.

After announcing his decision, Judge Anthony Kelly explained that Djokovic had not been given sufficient notice of his visa cancelation, or enough time by the government to prepare materials.

"The applicant (Djokovic) was told at 5:20 a.m. on Thursday, 6th January 2022, that he could have until 8:30 a.m. to provide comment in response to a notice of intention to consider cancelation," said Kelly. "The applicant's comments were then sought at 6:14 a.m. instead. The delegate's (the Ministry of Home Affairs) decision was made at 7:42 a.m. The applicant was thus denied until 8:30 a.m. to make comments. If the applicant had had until 8:30 a.m, he could have consulted others and made submissions to the delegate about why his visa should not be canceled."

ONTD Original: 2021 OPM in Review (Original Filipino music)

OPM (Original Pinoy Music) refers to a genre of music from the Philippines. To qualify, the song must be originally released in PH and produced and performed by Filipino singers who primarily reside and promote in PH. (So as proud as Filipinos are with Olivia Rodrigo's 2021 success, she will not count here.) Only songs released in 2021 will be featured in this review, with reference to the artist's past works.

2021 was an epic year for the former The Voice Kids PH contestant, who at 19, broke the Spotify PH chart record with his song "Binibini" (Young Lady). The song was featured in the evening gown competition of Binibining Pilipinas (Miss Philippines). His other release, "Habang Buhay" (Forever) is trending as a dance on Tiktok. With a strong Gen Z following, Tabudlo paves the way for a new generation of OPM lovers. (Fun fact: his music videos feature real life celeb couples)

This Week's US Soap Opera Promos (January 10th-14th, 2022)

This week on the US Daytime Soaps...

General Hospital

Loved the trial scenes a few weeks back. I enjoyed Michael’s plan blow up in his face. What is up with Michael lately though? He’s been a shit character for years but it’s like they’re not even trying to make him seem likeable (though I think the writers assume we’ll be rooting for him by default?) From his scenes in the courthouse after Willow’s testimony to his scenes with Willow and Harmony the other day, Michael is seeming more and more like a controlling, abusive asshole. He’s officially worse than Peter in my eyes now. At least I know we’re not supposed to be rooting for him.

Speaking of…why is Peter still alive? Speculation online seems to be favoring a murder mystery surrounding Peter. Whatever. Just off the motherfucker.

Loved seeing Tracy back! Loved that she figured out the Baily/Louise switch in almost no time.

As for Luke being dead. I’m not fully convinced he’s dead with Victor apparently being behind it and with Holly also still being presumed dead and kept prisoner somewhere. There’s no way in Hell Tony Geary is ever coming back (not that I’d ever want to see Luke again). I hope the character is dead but killing him off-screen and hypothetically reviving him off-screen seems hella pointless.

GH Spoilers for the Week

Days of Our Lives

I’ve seen some people talk about wanting a EJ x Belle pairing, since if Sami’s never returning full-time, the show needs a full-time pairing for EJ but I don’t like that idea for either Belle or EJ.

*Eyeroll* Steffy wanting her parents back together feels like it’s more about “winning” over the Logans than it is about wanting what is best for her parents. Sort of like how it felt like Brooke & Taylor’s involvement with their daughters’ relationships with Liam was more of a proxy war against their romantic rival than anything else.

I wasn't a fan of how lazily they handled Brooke's initial "alcoholism" story however many years ago and I'm not necessarily thrilled at how they're revisiting it now.

Amy Schneider, highest earning female and openly trans contestant on Jeopardy, wins over $1 million

Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, CA, has been constantly breaking records on Jeopardy. Just months ago, she became the first openly trans contestant to qualify for Jeopardy's Tournament of Champions, as well as the show's highest-earning female contestant in its history.

On her 28th appearance on the show on January 7, Schneider broke another record: she accrued over a million dollars in winnings, making her the 4th contestant ever to do so over a regular season and her winning bounty the 4th largest in the show's history after Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Matt Amodio.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Schneider cites Laverne Cox and Natasha Muse as her inspirations, and is proud of a podcast that she did on Downton Abbey. Her greatest asset as a contestant is her strength in the Final Jeopardy round, which she has only missed 3 times out of 28 so far.

You can watch some of Schneider's highlights below:

Andy Cohen shares why he never dated Anderson Cooper

The real housewives mastermind shared that even though he and journalist, Anderson Cooper, are inseparable, single and have great chemistry with each other, Cohen would not date him, adding that they’re just friends and that their friendship has become so strong through the years, that attraction is no longer on the table.

He acknowledges that Cooper is a handsome guy and reveals that they actually were to met each other firstly on a blind date set up by friends in the 90’s, but during a phone call leading to that date, Cohen committed a faux pas, that is a deal breaker for Cooper, he asked about his mother, late heiress, socialite, fashion icon and designer, Gloria Vanderbilt, immediately discarding Cohen as a romantic partner; however they remained in touch and with the passing of the years, became good friends, with the pair’s bond strengthening when each became fathers.

What’s your deal breaker, ONTD?

Convicted murderer, real estate empire heir and creep Robert Durst is dead. He died from cardiac arrest while serving a life sentence in prison at the age of 78. Durst was convicted of the 2000 murder of Susan Berman was suspected of two more murders (including the disappearance of his first wife). He was the subject of the 2015 HBO documentary The Jinx which famously ends with audio of Durst in the washroom confessing to the murders with no one realizing his mic was still on.
