On the Couch with Carlotta

Arts Review On the Couch CarlottaWho is Carlotta?
An Australian Entertainer.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
You know, I’m very happy with the life I have lead and the way it’s turned out. If I had to choose something to do differently, it would be to host a spot on talk back radio.

Who inspires you and why?
One of my best mates Prue MacSween. Prue is one of the strongest and bravest persons I know. I admire how she beat cancer. Anyone who beats this terrible disease are strong people. Not to mention she is a hard worker.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Removing political correctness. It’s ruining our world and society. No matter what you say someone is going to take offense. The fundamental idea was good but it’s gone way beyond that to ridiculous.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
My favourite holiday destination is Port Douglas. It is such a beautiful and amazing place.  If you haven’t been GO!

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take then to, and why?
I’d take them to any of the coastal beaches on the Gold Coast. We have some of the best beaches in the world.

What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Girl on a Train.

What are you currently listening to?
You can’t go past the wonderful Barbra Streisand. I pretty much have her on repeat.

Happiness is?
Strong friends and family relationships. Oh if you have whiners in your life, ditch them. They won’t bring happiness to your life.

What does the future hold for you?
I’m still going strong with another year on Channel TEN’s Studio 10 and the odd festivals performance around the country with the talented Michael Griffiths. The rest of the time I plan to spend more time with those I care and love.
