"It didn't even get as far as the shortlist stage," says her UK spokeswoman.
Thank you, Lord!

I guess that's what I get for thinking!
If only it were that simple! Novels normally take well over a year to complete, it takes a lot of time to complete a novel, properly at least.

Fergie backs Jo after CBB row

The Duchess of York has weighed into the Celebrity Big Brother debate by declaring her support for Jo O'Meara.
"I didn't watch the show and I don't condone anything she has allegedly said or done. But I know what it's like to be vilified. She is a broken girl. All I'm saying is that she should be removed from the stocks," Sarah Ferguson said.

Oh my goodness! If she wants to create media interest in her - is it necessary to engage in such a ugly topic and paint yourself a "victim, too"? IMHO it's disgusting.

She was just expressing her opinion Jo. She didn't say she supports what Jo O'Meara did (as Sarah admitted, she hadn't even watched the programme).

Well, yes, I would say that Sarah knows what its like to be villified.

Mmmm, I might yet change my mind about some of the 'new' Sarah. Just need to get her to cover up a bit, get her own 'pad' in London and stop going on about being a Duchess.

That's right - but why express your opinion -by a spokeswoman, no less! - if you have no idea why the girl is being vilified?

Whatever this "Jo" (it's not me.... ) did, she did it on "Celebrity Big brother". Noone is forced to appear on such a programme. If celebs do it, they have their own reason which normally have nothing to do with charity but self-interest. Big Brother is quite an old programme by now - anyone knows or could know what the whole thing is about. So this Jo must have known she was a potential victim of this programme. She did it anyway because she saw her interests fulfilled with appearing there.

Then she obviously made a mishap and is now (potentially) vilified for it. Well, things like that happen. But why does Sarah feel the need to phone the station and tell she knows how it is? That does not make sense to me at all, except in case this call was out of self-interest as well.

I think its more likely that this particular type of situation struck a raw nerve with Sarah given her own past and she just expressed what her own experiences were.

Its not smart but I think we've all agreed that Sarah isn't the smartest woman on the planet regarding influencing people's perceptions. But I don't think the move was that calculated either.

Yes, I agree. Why would she call and make a public statement? Esp. where she said she doesn't even watch the show and this woman (Jo) isn't a personal friend or a family member. I tend to think it's a self-appreciation move. If there was no attention-grabbing angle here, I'm sure Sarah's "people" could have contacted this woman privately and expressed Sarah's concern and/or support. But she obviously wants everyone to know how she feels. And why this woman? I'm sure there are plenty of ppl out there who are wrongfully "villified". She chose this woman to "support" 'cuz it's the most public.

Strange indeed. Sarah probably thought (in her strange way) that she would be helping the girl by making comparisons with her own experience, (as she saw it).

If she had thought about how it would look in the press, I don't think she would have said anything about it but Sarah has a habit of not thinking before she speaks.

The move is likely to draw comparisons between Sarah and Jo which is not a very smart PR move.

I almost feel sorry for Sarah, she tries to do something nice and it backfires, again.
She does deserve 'Brownie points' for not watching BB though!

Now, am I wrong or you are actually warming up to Sarah, Skydragon?

Personally I don't think much harm will be done by that statement - hardly anyone will remember it in a few days. I suppose Sarah did try to support the girl and remind how cruel and exaggerating the Media can be (though she (Jo) did deserve to be told off for her comments but not be made a scapegoat, imo).

That style of stocking is in vogue on both sides of the Atlantic. Looks much better in person that on photo. Besides she has great looking legs -go for it Sarah.

Now I adore Sarah (warts and all) but those stocking are a No No. I think they are the fashion craze but more so for someone a little younger. Dare I say it. At some point, when you reach a mature age....you don't buy into every fashion craze (i.e. those stockings).
