As editor-at-large of the entertainment section of the The Sun-Herald in Sydney, Shelly drinks champagne and parties with celebrities for a living. When she’s not interviewing famous faces for the paper, she's talking about them on TV. Her dad still can't believe she gets paid to do it. Through work and play, she's travelled to the same number of countries as her age and loves having her birthday in foreign countries – she had her 24th birthday on a camel-dive safari in Egypt, her 33rd dancing on tables in Cuba and her 35th at an ice-hockey match in Canada. The big decision will be where to have her 40th – she's taking submissions on what country thinks it's worthy of such a knees-up.
