Heather Mills thought she’d had the last laugh when she poured that jug of water over the head of Fiona Shackleton, Paul McCartney‘s lawyer. Her little trick backfired, according to The Daily Telegraph‘s Celia Walden: Heather revealed the 52-year-old Shackleton to be a “major babe”: “Even men – less generous than women when it comes to feminine aesthetics – were spotted making those familiar ritualistic signs as they stared at images of the newly sleek Ms. Shackleton, noticing for the first time her fine bone structure, almond eyes, and wrinkle-free forehead.” Um, as much as I dislike Heather, I can’t go there with ya, Celia. I simply cannot.
Ms. Applebottoms: Nigella Lawson‘s “voluptuous rear” has alarmed her bosses at the Food Network: “Our spies at the Food Network say Nigella has way overeaten. The result is a butt like a horse. Her director is now doing back flips to not show her below the waist.” (The Sun)
Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
