Keeping Up With Joost

2012-02-21 11:56
It's a task, isn't it? Joost's personal life is unravelling in the media at such a furious pace, he needs his own Kardashian-esque TV show.

The poor guy is battling a terminal illness, so says his now former doctor, who could also be his former lover. He also apparently got the mafia (we have a mafia?) involved to take down Kurt Darren who was caught in an "embrace" with his estranged wife Amor Vittone.

Lost? Yeah, us too. This would be easier to navigate with an episode synopsis.

What I can't figure out, similar to the Kardashian phenomenon, is why exactly Joost and Amor are still so fascinating? I guess it's like seeing a train wreck that you just can't look away from.

They are nonetheless our newsmakers this week. E-mail us us your thoughts on the Joost saga - do you want to know more or have you had enough of this former Springbok and his ZZZ-lister wife?
