Not Friends anymore
Shocked this week to hear that Jennifer Aniston hated the 'Rachel' cut.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. It was her haircut that made
us all rememeber her! Her picture was in every magazine not as much
about her acting but about her hairstyle. It was the look everybody
wanted. It was even given its own name 'The 'Rachel' Its up their with
those othe iconic haircuts like Twiggy's elfin hairstyle and Joanna
Lumley's 'Purdey'. Those where haircuts that defined a generation and
and the 'Rachel can proudly stand alongside them. I admit that looking
back at our former selves we often wonder what where we thinking when we
had that haircut or wore that outfit, but they where and always will be
a snapshot of time and we probably thought we looked 'cool' or trendy,
so don't knock it embrace it and think of it as the look that led to you
being the person you are now. Mayybe Jenniffer should aske herself where
she would be now without it, after all who can remember who the other
two girls from Friends'
Did you find yourself feeling a bit low last Monday, like something just
wasn't quite right' Well, don't worry you weren't alone because a survey
has suggested that Monday January 17th was Blue Monday and the saddest
day of the year. Who knows why' Anyway, never fear because June 17th is
predicted to be the happiest day of the year and it is also my mum's
birthday. Maybe there's a connection'
Its the award ceremony season and so far the hottest trends have been
for the colours green and nudes with particular stand out dresses worn
by Elisabeth Moss and Scarlett Johanssen at the Golden Globes. One thing
you can't help but notice is how skinny everybody was, there wasn't a
bingo wing or muffin top to be seen. The award for the quirkiest outfit
so far goes to Helena Bonham Carter who wore odd shoes. You would have
thought sombody may have told her or maybe it was just a ploy to get her
noticed' In that case job well done.
According to the New York Times, scientists have found that there is a
chemical in women's tears that can lower a man's level of sexual
arousal. They suggested that watching The Notebook can now be considered
an effective form of birth control.
TV highlight of the week was the start of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on
Channel 4. It was so over the top, we all loved it. American Idol was
also back with Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler as the new judges. We
haven't seen J-Lo for a while so it was nice to see her looking lovely
with a new fringe. Being a judge on a singing competition like American
Idol is a great way for J-Lo to re-launch her career. Look what it did
for Cheryl Cole'
There are a lot of magazine agony columns out there but the most unusual
and our favourite has to be Ask Dr Ozzy in one of the Sunday papers.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to ask Ozzy Osbourne to give health
and relationship and advice is clearly a little bit crazy and an
Word of the week is 'bargainista' to describe a girl who can make cheap
clothes look like a million dollars.
The search for the the next Susan Boyle hit the Empire this weekend,
when Britains Got talent arrived. Lots and lots of people where milling
around outisde the theatre all asking the same thing how do you get a
Something that that made
everyone happy this week was the news that a young girl has been
reunited with her family 23 years after she was kidnapped from a
hospital in New York. It gives us all hope for
McCann. It's hard to believe that she has been missing for
four years but I hope this new story can give some comfort to her
parents who continue to work tirelessly to find her.

Everyone loves a bit of drama and at a family wedding this week I
experienced something worthy of any soap. At the end of his speech just
before he sat down the groom dropped in the line that the bride was
pregant a minor bombshell but a nice one but then came the real shock
ending as he added and she's having triplets! Never heard such a loud
gasp at a wedding before, It just needed the Eastenders dum dum dum
closing music to complete the scene.
