But will she start paying our $48m back?

Robyn Malcolm is going to get her kit off in a photo-shoot.

Kiwi screen queen Robyn Malcolm has moved on from Outrageous Fortune to a new outrageous and naked photo shoot.

The 46-year-old Ashburton-raised actress – who in 2010 was crowned the sexiest woman in New Zealand television in the annual TV Guide awards – has revealed on her official Twitter and Facebook accounts that she has stripped off for an intimate modelling session.

It’s understood the photos will be used in a soon-to-be-revealed campaign for one of her chosen charities.

On Tuesday, the former Outrageous Fortune star wrote on her Facebook page: ”Nude shoot surprisingly stress free … maybe clothing is indeed the problem.”

She ain’t no Lucy Lawless that is for sure.

But Outrageous Fortune was an outrageous rip off, costing the New Zealand taxpayer $48m. As the star of the show Robyn Malcolm took a sizable part of this subsidy for shlock. So she may post naked for charity but will she pay us our money back now she has a huge profile based on taxpayer funding. Or will we never get a return from Outrageous Fortune?

    I could possibly consider donating to her charity, if only she would keep her kit on.

    48 million? are you shitting me? thats an…..outrageous fortune……..

  • Hakim of Phut

    They have paid it back but its a secret how much, Im guessing from the amount of black space its less than $1 mill.
    But funding which went from $5 mill in series 1 to $10 mill in series 3 seems to be so the stars were paid more.
    Eating media Lunch got a min $250,000 for 8 series ( each)

    You forgot to mention the other 30 odd million her and the other hobbit hater cost the country more recently.

    • Hakim of Phut

      How did Key ‘giving money’ to Warners  be blamed on her?

      • Kosh103

        Shhhhhhh, the right wing HATE facts and truth being put into a discussion. ;0)

      • Super Guest

        Because the films wouldn’t have gone ahead without it? Because her and her union hacks mates tried to knife the entire industry for the sake of the left and unions?

  • Kosh103

    What a silly post WO. NZ on Air does not as the country what they should spend money on, so to attack Malcom in this way demading she pays back the millions is just childish.

    As a tax payer I did not want one cent spent on the stupid Rugby World Cup. Should I now demand Rugby NZ and the Govt return all the tax money they spent on the stupid thing?

    Not all tax dollars go where we want them to go, and to stamp your feet and make silly demands because you do not like a person involved in the project is just childish.

      “…..and to stamp your feet and make silly demands because you do not like a person involved in the project is just childish.”

      Labour’s new Modus Operandi Kosh. Get with it or don’t you support your fellow neck breathers any more? Perhaps you’ve subconsciously joined the ‘dark side’?

      • Kosh103

        Pitty for you Labour are not doing what you are suggesting.

        And I have too many braincells to ever join the ‘dark side’.

      • Agent BallSack

        Prediction for Kosh aged 40 – Joins the National Front after deciding the National Party is just ‘too mellow’

    • Killjoy

      “Not all tax dollars go where we want them to go, and to stamp your feet and make silly demands because you do not like a person involved in the project is just childish.”

      How is this different to how Labour and the teachers’ unions jump up and down about Anne Tolley (now Hekia Parata)???

      • Kosh103

        Very different. That was. and still is, about preventing a failed system being forced upon children. About children being used by National for idiolical reasons as oppsed to looking at what works in education and doing that.

        That and Tolley was an idiot and a liar. Also you do not see the teachers union saying Tolley must pay back her tax payer wage, now do you.

      • Kosh is the living embodiment of why National Standards are required.

        WTF are “idiolical reasons”?

        Terrible to think he is actually teaching kids.

      • Agent BallSack

        I hope like hell s/he doesn’t teach in the lower Lower Hutt area and have the gall or temerity to complain about National Standards…

  • Agent BallSack

    I have major issue with Malcolm being voted NZs sexiest woman 2010, was the vote held at a blind convention or mental ward? More details needed Whale!

  • Elaycee

    The thought of this dopey bint getting her kit off for charity, will induce nightmares.

    Or perhaps the photos are to be used as the centrefold of Turf Digest. Tucked somewhere between Cardigan Bay and the DB Clydesdales.  

    • Paul Rain

      She’s not so bad. Not that there aren’t a bunch of better looking women just on that show, who regrettably have enough common sense/career left not to pull these sorts of stunts.

    • muffin

      Adern should be in that as well with her teeth on display

      • Gazzaw

    Now that should make you bring up your lunch

    • phronesis

      It did thanks very much. Even then it still looked better than that lot.

    • Peter Wilson

      You left out Annette King.

    • Magoo.

      Penny Bright?

  • sailorx

    Personal insults particularly towards women seem to be part and parcel of the right wing agenda.Why is this.

    • Alex

      Have you read the comments from Kosh our resident Leftist troll? There’s some above.  Please stop trying to play the “we Leftists are so superior, we don’t engage in personal attacks”.  For the last 12 years, we’ve had nothing but spiteful attacks from the Left.  Google anything about John Key and see what I mean.  In short, people in glass houses…

      • Kosh103

        Personal insults and the truth are 2 different things. You should learn that.

    • Thorn

      Because the majority of left-wing women are useless skanks.

      • Kosh103

        LMAO my my look at the judmental prick. Wow, talk about a clueless fool.

    • Magoo

      I wonder what Sarah Palin has to say about your self righteous comment.

  • Anonymous

    Kosh103 you are a moron.
    Has anybody told team New Zealand that actors should stick to Acting?

    • Vij

      Have to agree with you

    • Kosh103

      Anyone told you that you are clueless and actors have been getting their kit off for decades.

      Grow a brain blobhead.

  • sailorx

    There you go, an automatic assumption that a person who questions anything on a right wing blog is left wing.Some of us are apolitical, totally burned out after decades of listening to lies lies and more lies from inept inadequate and incompetent politicians of all leanings.

    • Alex

      Well I ask that if you have a problem with the “right wing agenda”, you would do well to bugger off.  This is a right wing blog site, didn’t you know?

      • sailorx

        sorry alex should have realised that any form of questioning is absolutely verboten on a right wing blog.Thought you chaps were all in favour of free speech and all that.Be a very strange world if we all thought alike.Take a look at what mao did to the chinese.

  • jay cee

    boy you guy’s. such venom. get a grip or go and have a lie down.i was brought up to understand that attacking a persons looks was a cheap shot. and no i haven’t said anything bad about john key.you want superority just read the main posts here.

  • Thorn

    This is unlikely the first time Robyn Malcolm would have bared all for strangers, or taken money for showing off her pink bits..

  • Steve and Monique

    idiolical? Isn’t Kosh103 a teacher?  Yes. let’s look at WHAT works in education and WHO doesn’t.

    • Kosh103

      LMAO my my you are a nasty troll.

  • Angry Croc

    Saw her on the back of a bus the other day, how appropriate!

  • Anonymous

    Was the Bus reversing or did she just look like a Bus had reversed over Her.

  • EX Navy Greg

    I will donate 10 bucks if she doesn’t drop her trolleys.

  • Kosh103

    Wow, it is quite disgusting the level of HATE that is being directed at this woman. Kinda makes one ponder and question if there isnt something elese going on here as well.

    • EX Navy Greg

      Evening Kosh, The thing that pisses me off with her is her superior attitude. She is not Meryl Streep, or Greta Garbo, but she thinks she is. If she pulled her head in a bit I could possibly tolerate her third rate acting skills.

      • Kosh103

        Evening. Maybe so, (and I have never really rated her as an actress either, or watched anything she has been in) but the level of attack and hate in this thread is rather disgusting.

        Kinda kills any right the right wing have to claim any moral highground in 2012.

      • EX Navy Greg

        Cheers kosh, maybe so as well, Mr Gazzaw’s response below is pretty much the way most of us feel here, this lady cost the taxpayer money to keep the film studios here to keep kiwis in jobs.The whole thing was totally unneccesary and was performed by her, for her, and it cost us all. That won’t be forgotten for a while.

    • Gazzaw

      It’s getting late in the day Kosh so don’t ponder on a reply. HATE is probably the wrong word – scorn or disgust are probably more appropriate in relation to a person who made a very significant contribution towards attempted economic sabotage and the loss of hundreds of Kiwi jobs.

      • Kosh103

        Im sticking with hate.

    • sailorx

      Fear is the catalyst for hatred and anger.Ardent right wingers live in a constant state of fear always worried that someone wants to get at their money and toys, or usurp their position of power be it real or imaginary.

      • EX Navy Greg

        This is one thing the left wing can’t get their head around.
        What little I have , is MY money and MY toys, not your’s, get a job , fuck off.

      • sailorx

        Oh dear a bugger off followed by a fuck off sophisticated types these right wingers.

      • EX Navy Greg

        Sailorx, I wasn’t having a go at you ,I was having a go at the sense of entitlement that is out there. no offense intended to you.

  • Balanced View

    I know it’s early on, but surely this post is a strong contender for “worst blog of the year 2012”?
    C’mon Whale, you can do better than this.

    • Kosh103

      No, he really cant. WO is a bottom feeder. He lives for this sort of thing.
