Australian television personality Renee Bargh is Sports Illustrated’s Lovely Lady of the day, but she’s not just a pretty face. Bargh has made a name for herself on Australia’s Channel V, but most recently she worked as a special correspondent for “Extra,” chatting with John Travolta in Australia.
The actor was celebrating the 90th anniversary of Quantas Airline, where he occasionally pilots. Travolta told Bargh that he was ready to fly home on a moment’s notice should his wife, Kelly Preston, go into labor with his third child, son Benjamin.
24-year-old Bargh is not only a TV host, but a pop star in her own right. She attended an Australian performing arts college, and after graduating, she joined the singing group Girlband, who had two successful singles down under before they split up in 2007.
Bargh’s fans can catch up with her on her blog, Renee’s Ramblings, where she posts photos of her favorite celebs – including her girlcrush, “90210’s” hippie chick Gillian Zinser, and the occasional musing. We love her take on plane etiquette. Seriously, when we put our headphones on, it means we don’t want to see pictures of your cat.
