She’s the Ukrainian-born beauty who left Richie Strahan spellbound on The Bachelor back in 2016.

And Olena Khamula still looks just as striking today, even though her appearance has changed significantly over the past four years.

These days, the 27-year-old makeup artist has swapped her Hollywood blonde locks for a more understated brunette hairstyle.

She has also embraced a more laid-back style, in contrast to the glamorous ball gowns she wore on the Channel 10 dating show.

Olena showed off her new look in an Instagram post on Tuesday, posing in a chic knit sweater and wearing minimal makeup.

Bachelor fans will remember Olena for her sometimes hostile conversations with leading man Richie towards the end of the fourth season.

During hometown week, she confronted the rope-access technician about whether he was ready for a long-distance relationship.

At one stage, she lost her temper and snapped: ‘You want to live in a fairy tale but this is the real s***!’ 

When she was sent packing at the subsequent rose ceremony, Olena looked like she hardly cared as she offered Richie a stilted, formal farewell.

‘It was a great pleasure meeting you… I was glad that you were there by my side,’ she said.

‘I really hope one of those two girls is someone that you’re going to be loving for the rest of your life. Thank you.’  

Richie later told producers that sending Olena home was an easy decision.

‘Saying goodbye to Olena wasn’t that difficult,’ he admitted.

Olena began dating property developer Rodney Maroun shortly after filming The Bachelor. They married in December 2019.

Richie ended up splitting with his winning contestant, Alex Nation, and is now in a relationship with Perth native Jenayah Thompson.

mary j blige recalls how sweet the notorious b i g called her mom when they first met

Nine-time Grammy winner Mary J. Blige recalled the first time she met The Notorious B.I.G. in a recording studio when he was laying down his verse on her 1993 album What’s the 411? Remix.

‘He was sweet and fun,’ the 49-year-old Queen of Hip Hop Soul said during Tuesday’s episode of No Filter with Naomi Campbell.

‘He was in the studio [leaning] on the wall, smoking, and quiet…When he came out [of the studio], he was like, “You feeling that, Mom?” [I was] like, “Yeah, of course I’m feeling that! Crazy!” He was always humble, and quiet, and sweet. And fun, just a lot of fun.’

‘He was sweet and fun!’ Nine-time Grammy winner Mary J. Blige recalled the first time she met The Notorious B.I.G. (R) in a recording studio when he was laying down his verse on her 1993 album What’s the 411? Remix

The four-time Grammy nominee (born Christopher Wallace) was tragically murdered, age 24, in a drive-by shooting back in 1997.

Mary still considers Biggie Smalls’ ex-girlfriend Lil’ Kim as well as his Bad Boy Records boss Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs like family.

‘Yes, Kim is still my little baby sister. That’s my baby, my heart,’ Blige gushed.

‘Puff has been in my life since the beginning of my career. We were working on What’s the 411 together. He was the A&R for my first album. He was already my brother and my family by the time I got the My Life album.’

The Bronx-born R&B belter recounted how she was discovered by Uptown Records founder Andre Harrell in 1989 after hearing her cover of Anita Baker’s 1986 song Caught Up in the Rapture she recorded at Galleria White Plains.

‘[Andre] was like, “Oh my God, you’re a star!”‘ said Mary, who got a house call from Harrell.

‘He told my mother, “Your daughter is going to sing for royalty one day.” He came to my hood, and heard this young girl sing, and gave me a chance, and everything else was history.’

macklemore is unrecognizable as he jokes about his quarantine glow up in new shirtless selfie

Macklemore definitely caught a number of his nearly five million Instagram followers off guard with his new look. 

The 37-year-old rapper unveiled his new facial hair and voluminous curls in his shirtless selfie on Sunday. 

‘Oh you didn’t think I was gonna hit the glow up during Covid? Tag someone that didn’t know I had natural curls and enter in a chance to win my secret recipe for the perfect dangles,’ the Thrift Shop hitmaker captioned the post.

Macklemore’s curly locks were a striking contrast to his signature long-on-top, shaved-on-sides haircut.

As he smiled at the camera, the three-time Grammy winner donned two gold necklaces and put a few of his known 18 tattoos on full display. 

On the left side of the performer’s chest, his scorpion tat could be seen, in addition to an inked face of a woman wearing a hat and a scarf, just inches to the right. 

The picture caused quite a stir among his fans in the comment section, as many remarked that he was unrecognizable or resembled Tiger King’s Joe Exotic.

He first shot to stardom in 2012 after releasing the song Thrift Shop with Ryan Lewis.
