REALITY star Lara Bingle has made peace with her nan by joining her for a game of bingo at Nelson Bay.
Lara’s nan Norma Bingle, who lives at Shoal Bay, was the unlikely star of the first episode of Being Lara Bingle.
Nanna Norma rang her famous granddaughter and blasted her over the controversial nude-photos-on-the-balcony incident at Bondi.

The pair made up towards the end of the episode and Lara promised her nan she would come to Shoal Bay for a visit.
True to her word, Bingle and her brother and mother visited Norma for a quick visit in a follow-up episode.
The model and her Channel 10 television crew returned to the region yesterday to join Norma for bingo at Wests Nelson Bay Diggers about 11am.
Bingle sat and mingled with the elderly crowd, who seemed undisturbed by the film crew.
No stranger to Port Stephens, Bingle got her first big break in the region.
She filmed the international tourism commercial with the catchphrase ‘‘Where the bloody hell are you?’’ at Box Beach near Fingal Bay in 2006.
The bingo episode of Being Lara Bingle is set to air on Southern Cross Ten in the Hunter in mid-August.
Despite a good start, ratings for the show have dropped nationally and in Newcastle.
