Laugh? I almost split the seams of my crimplene trouser suit.
Kerry Katona, for those outside the UK is best know these days as a reality TV “star”. At one time she was part of the original line up of girl group Atomic Kitten and is the former wife of West life ex member Brian McFadden.
Atomic Kitten have now reformed with Kerry as part of the group once more.
She has recently done an interview for “love it” magazine. (That’s how they write the title, not my typo. So annoying with no capitals).
To go with the fact that she says she feels like an O.A.P. the magazine invited her to do a photo shoot dressed as a “pensioner”.
At one stage the Daily Mail article (now edited) stated that she “ looks every inch the convincing granny”.
I’m almost sixty myself and granny of two boys. knowing many women of pension age, I would say that is a downright insult. What decade do the magazine photographers think we are living in?
None of the ones I know would wear their hair like that or want to still be surrounded by 60s/70s furniture.
They would certainly have replaced what would by now be a threadbare, gaudy patterned carpet and would be using a vacuum cleaner, not a Ewbank.
Ewbank was established in 1880, in Accrington, Lancashire. They were the first company in Europe to make a carpet sweeper.
Rather than wearing uncomfortable stockings, they would probably be wearing something more practical like a pair of jeans or trackies. (are they hold ups she’s wearing with suspenders in the picture by the way? It also looks like she’s wearing false eyelashes!)
They like to wear fairly trendy outfits and have soft fashionable hairstyles.
Would the record she is holding in the picture below actually play properly on the ancient gramophone? Surely it wasn’t stereo?
Newsflash “love it” magazine. Lots of oldies have mobile phones and computers. Some might have even experimented with online dating. They have CD collections as well as maybe holding on to some of their vinyl. Just possibly they would have replaced their old library of Odham’s books with something a little more up to date. Who knows, some of us might even be dabbling in “Shades”…
Totally naff article.
If the Daily Mail stoops to rehashing this sort of thing from a magazine, what does it take its female readership for? Do they think this is what we want? Give us real news about “real” people and stop treating us like idiots.
