Australian reality stars drugged at party

Two Australian reality stars were apparently drugged at a fundraiser this past Saturday.

Big Brother cast member Christie Mills “was taken to hospital by ambulance after passing out on a couch at the Holiday Inn around midnight,” The Daily Telegraph reports. Tests found Rohypnol in her blood.

Christie told the paper, “My drink was spiked at Schoolies so I know how it felt. I don’t remember a thing. Apparently someone saw two guys trying to put me in a cab but I don’t remember … I don’t know who it was.”

In addition, The Biggest Loser “contestant Mel Russell was also believed to have been drugged.” The two women were “among about 200 people who had earlier partied at Melba’s nightclub for the Big Borneo Bash, which raised about $3000 for zookeeper Claire Maddens’ charity.”
