It may be the television event that stops time for some but model turned emerging reality starlet Lara Bingle is to miss this month's Logies.
The former WAG and Dancing With The Stars contender, who is set to star in her own reality show on Ten later this month, has been extended an invitation to the glitzy bash at Palladium at Crown.
While Bingle has not given a definite answer, sources say she has declined because she is busy on other projects.
"It's a bit of a blow to Ten as she is potentially one of their bigger stars, who does command a lot of press coverage," a spy told Confidential.
Officially, however, her manager Hermione Underwood yesterday said Bingle won't be attending the Logie Awards gala "at this point" due to schedule conflicts, but was working on a way to "make it happen".
It certainly seems an out-of-character move for Bingle, who was a red-carpet regular at the Allan Border Medal when she was engaged to now Australian cricket team captain Michael Clarke.
This year would have marked her Logies debut, with her fly-on-the-wall reality show Being Lara Bingle one of Ten's few ratings hopes of this year.
